Porsche engineers know their stuff
Yes, although unlike with the Porsche Taycan, this time there are actual turbos under the hood. A pair of them. And they're bolted to a 4.0-liter V8. That's the Turbo S side of this car's clunky name.
Have you considered buying something like this?
A sedan. Which might not mean much if you're a young pup. See, before crossovers took over the world, sedans were a heartland car. Then the whole crossover thing happened, and they died down.Because recently, there's been a renaissance
Turbo galore
It's the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet PDK. A chunky name for a chunkily priced car; before options, it will set you back £102,072 (P6.46 million). That's about as much as the 911 GT3 cost new a couple
The legacy of excellence continues
That it's even faster than Porsche claims. And that it might well be the most complete 911 Turbo there's ever been. Which is clearly two things, but both are important. I'll tell you about the speed later, but first,
It delights the senses
Yep, it's the cabriolet version of the new, road-crushing 911 Turbo S. And, as is the tradition with these things, it's a little bit heavier-69.8kg, to be precise-than the coupe thanks to the additional bracing and
A better proposition
It's Sorrento Yellow, and doesn't it look great? The ray of sunshine we all need right now. Mind, it should be when it costs £4,500 (P281,200)-or a whopping £7,000 (P437,425) if you want it matte.
Porsche lights the way
Well, nothing and everything. This is the Taycan, Porsche's first fully-electric car, and as such, the first proper production EV from a legacy manufacturer that puts performance first. This could revolutionize the way many markets regard e-mobility.Not overnight,
A gateway car into the world of EVs
You're not looking hard enough. Like a Porsche 911, the XC40 Recharge T5 has a filler flap in the front wing. Though this is on the left, and it's an electric socket. The fuel filler is on the right rear
Dare we say it?
Nope. We're not going there. This is going to be a-This is a rational, objective assessment of a car that has, in its previous two generations, sold upwards of 443,000 examples worldwide. Had it only sold about four, we
The Rimac C_Two EV is mind-boggling
We are here, in a small village just outside Zagreb in Croatia, to drive one of the prototypes of the Rimac C_Two EV hypercar with 1,887hp and 2,297Nm of torque, a 0-100kph time under 2sec, a 415kph top speed,
What does the new pickup have to offer?
Remember the pickup wars from about half a decade ago? Those sure were fun times. Back then, the market was suddenly flooded with all-new iterations of well-known models, each with its own loyal customer base. Now, we may be in
The shift to electric is a success
Which is entirely the point. The toughest thing to get used to is the weird futuristic 'bing-bong' noise when you start it up. Once you've finished grimacing at that you can get on with appreciating how like a Mini the
And it looks damn good
It's the Mercedes-AMG A35 sedan. What it isn't is a CLA. You can get that with the same engine and chassis, but you'll pay more for the privilege. Such is the price of fashion.As per the A35
It’s about time
In fairness, Porsche has never been afraid of a big, public U-turn, a model some governments would do well to take inspiration from. Its latest-and perhaps greatest-backpedal yet comes in the form of this new 718 GTS Cayman and
We test it on various road surfaces and in different driving situations
Kia has had a good history in the Philippines. Who could forget when the Kia Pride was fighting big-body Corollas for taxi dominance? It was the '90s version of the Grab and Uber wars. Then, like Uber, Kia faded for a
“Classier than ever, while still possessing a wicked sense of fun”
Indeed it is, as those controversial new headlights denote. You've likely made your mind up on them already, but I'd ask you to reserve final judgement for now.One, because they look significantly better in person than in pictures. And
Not quite a restomod
Let's not. This is not the new Defender, but it's an old Defender with much newness. In fact, every single component-every last nut and washer-is either new or better than new. Or different from new-upgraded and modernized
Effortless to ride and to drive
Very much so. And don't forget that, with the i3 and the i8, the German carmaker was one of the first to embrace electricity. The 5-Series is another one following a route down this path, although in this case, it'
There is a lot riding on this model
Ah, you spotted the litter of sponsor decals, though they're really more of a distraction than a disguise: Aston Martin's reminder that this is not yet the finished article. I'm in Oman driving the DBX. The two are a
