Although both strolling on pretty shopping streets and magnificent avenues perfectly mastered, thirst their engines after expiry. Swap Boulevard opposite runway. As of launch control to make both ready. You could also call blow-dry mode, in the sense of optimal values, we close before the roofs.

Porsche 911 S Convertible Trubo brake Lupfen, the decommissioned by start-stop function biturbo boxer signaled by cultured hawking immediate willingness to work. Enormous thrust force lurking in the rear, but can be cut back on city size which fits thanks to fine throttle response. Comfortable cruising up to 50 km / h in it. The dual clutch transmission surfs smoothly through its gears, let the six-cylinder engine with little more than mumble then idle speed.

With 550 hp, the F-Type R coupe roars to 30 hp over the 911 Turbo –
without actually overtake him. Both inspire rather side by side
here – the one as executor, the other as a hero.

E s is called: For the Turbo, there are no enemies, just victims. And now he is so because, the Jaguar sports car that the XK with the RS variants never really has to impose leave, to compete with the 911. And he has become a thoroughbred fast, sexy, extra stiff, loud and on top of that without sweaty palms quickly and transversely down. But he can against Porsche stand?

Porsche 911 Turbo For sure you know that scene from horror movies, that moment when the quotas must Blonde midnight again very much out the trash. Yes? Accelerator when the 911 Turbo feels just as at. Actually, you know exactly what happened, and yet scares you every time: A tiny moment passes before the two turbochargers gather the forces of the three rowing eight, then they overwhelm one from behind and merciless. If it’s urgent, over boost 710 Newton meters of almost 1,600 kilos in 3.2 seconds to 100 km / h – which can clap as inertial mass against the inside of the skull, the brain, and in this performance class is still the benchmark.

Jaguar F-Type R coupe so if you have hoped, we provide the new Jaguar F-Type R before now as the one who finally reaches the turbo the water, we have to disappoint you. Despite its fuller supercharged V8 with smooth five liters, a minimally better power to weight ratio and the shorter gear ratios its nimble ZF automatic it will always enroll in Favourites behind the Porsche – the reason being simply lies in the architecture of the drive. Although the force of sudden swells out of it and then gushes hardly less impressive up on the rev band, but ultimately just have to repel less of a drive axle 70 pounds more. Unlike the turbo that catches his load pressure wave with the help of a multi-plate clutch with all four wheels, the launch controlled electronically and on top of that occurs by excessive torque when shifting up or even in the butt, the 680 Newton meters of Jaguar want to be paddled with a lot of toe feeling to the rear wheels .

The 911 pulls on the nerves, the F-Type bangs

Plaintext: Who reinlatscht dull, draws lines on the asphalt, only Sensitive kompressern in 4.2 seconds to 100 – where you will still lose a whole second to the Porsche. Grotesque only that it is the F-Type creates, not only because of the over 60,000 euros lower basic price to be a real alternative to the charged penalty. And that is this: For decades, Jaguar is looking for his own identity. Time you tried it with nostalgia, sometimes over the price consciousness, then progressively back – and so now with the closed F-Type R, which not only all this combines, but at the same time those sports car rediscovery, by the end of the six-cylinder E -Types in the early seventies had been lost.

He was the stiffest Jaguar ever, this perfectly balanced axle load and only alone and developed to the pilot around. Or to quote the Marketing Guys: “If the outgoing XK understood as a classic 2 +2, as a car for two words that can hold more if need two, then the F-Type is a one-plus-one.”

In the dynamic orbit of a Turbo, Jaguar F-Type R coupe can not push forward – which is not a drama, but now times fact. The Porsche goes kinky ahead, curving unflinching, draws erotic but most of all from his mercilessness. Or to stay in Cinematic: The 911 thrillt like Basic Instinct, the Jag bangs in the style of a modern Bond.

Porsche announces match the IAA premiere of the 918 Spyder, a new record time at the Nurburgring. The hybrid-athletes to be faster than any production car before.

Porsche has only just the hybrid 918 Spyder athletes on the 2013 IAA presented. Less than 24 hours later can announce the sports car maker that the 918 Spyder will have cracked the lap time for production cars (“with worldwide street legal”) on the prestigeträchitgen Nordschelife. Not only that, the first time the seven-minute barrier was thereby undercut.

Exhibition Tour: The stars of the IAA

The record attempt has, according to Porsche took place under the supervision of an objective observer. Ex-World Rally Champion Walter Röhrl, Porsche test driver Timo Kluck and Porsche works driver Marc Lieb put on the new record and it had two 918 Spyder available. All of them could set the fastest time of the previous record holder Gumpert Apollo undercut (7:12 minutes). It should have been reached by under seven minutes several times a time. With six minutes and 57 seconds but sat Marc Lieb, the absolute best time. The two 887-hp 918 Spyder were equipped with the optional “Weissach package” and are on the standard, but developed specifically for the 918 Spyder Michelin tires have been traveling. Compared to its predecessor ten year old Carrera GT, the time difference is even more stark. A time of about 7:30 minutes is considered feasible on the Nordschleife for the Carrera GT.

The suffix “GTS” makes Porsche Cayman and Boxster two top athletes for purists. autobild.de was with the GTS variants already on test drive!

The abbreviation stands for GTS Porsche for “Gran Turismo Sport”. For Porsche Cayman and Boxster which means a capacity of 340 or 330 hp – and therefore each 15 hp more than the respective S-variant. In the first autobild.de test drive to Cayman and Boxster GTS GTS entuppten as light, strong and snappy, so a case for genuine Porsche purists! The Sport Plus mode makes the strong two-seaters at the touch veritable power packs. The trolleys are then hard as a board – but remain still comfortable.

The soundtrack has earned a Grammy. The GTS racer sound bitter hoarse – and in sport plus mode, the six-cylinder boxer sounds downright biting. The optional ZF automatic PDK is super tuned provides liquid and buttery smooth shifts. When kick-down from the state of the dual clutch transmission drives the first gear from almost full and there when you switch to the second still a lot of pressure. At the wheel of Cayman and Boxster GTS one feels directly connected to the road. No wonder they also fly ten millimeters lower on the asphalt than before. In the cockpit wait leather inserts and a clock that turns into a chronometer when needed. In GTS everything is trimmed to sports without the practicality goes flutes.
