    We already saw this comparison earlier in the year when Car and Driver compared the F82 M4 to the Porsche 991 Carrera. In that comparison, the M4 came out on top. Let's see what happens when the Brits over at EVO get a hold of both of these cars for a track comparison. This is the big question, does the M4's power and updated chassis allow it to beat the lighter rear engine Porsche 991 Carrera around the track? EVO does the comparison well showing both cars lapping at the same time. This allows some of the trademark characteristics of the cars to show. Namely that the 911 has less understeer on turn on but this is the area that one traditionally has to be careful with a 911 getting back on the power exiting the apex so that oversteer does not bite you in rear end. The 911 handling is definitely tighter. The M4's additional mass shows as it tends to push a bit. The 911's lead built in and out of turns is made up by the M4's power. Finesse versus muscle is what we witness. The tighter the course gets, the more it favors the 991. Laptimes, for reference a 458 Speciale laps this track in 1:14.2: Porsche 991 Carrera: 1:17.8 BMW F82 M4: 1:19.2 The 911 in this comparison proves it is the better sports car. To open up a gap like that on the M4 even with a huge power deficit shows how impressive the 991 chassis is. If this was a 911 model with more power, it would not even be a contest. The M4 is more muscle car and that is the direction BMW M is headed with their street cars. If you want the cheaper car with more power, the choice is the M4. If you want the better driver's car, it's the 911.

    What you see in the videos below is the upcoming Mercedes answer to the BMW X6. Yes, the four-door 'coupe' style SUV market is heating up. Basically, the MLC will just be an M-Class but with different styling. Essentially how BMW makes the X6 based on the X5 architecture. This means the transmission and engine choices will all carry over. It also means we will see an MLC63 AMG as spyphotos from earlier this year showed. The MLC model in the videos below appears to be the MLC63 AMG based on the bodywork and wheels compared to the previous set of spyphotos. The sound of the exhaust also points to an M157 5.5 liter V8 under the hood. The only wildcard is the rear diffuser which does not appear to have the trademark quad tips as shown in the previous set of spyphotos. It is not uncommon for manufacturers to try to remove elements that tell too much about the model testing. Regardless, the MLC and MLC63 AMG are shaping up well and the design proportions seem to work. The official unveiling is not far off.

    Well if we're slowing down now before I even launched the new network it looks like I'm going to need to do a pretty big server upgrade. Why does everything take money from me? Anyway, I made some big optimization changes right now. Let's see if that gets us by in the meantime.

    Forum response is SLOW... There is at least a 5 seconds delay after every click... Time for an upgrade? Or a clean-up?

    The MKI Golf in this video is built by Boba Motoring. The name should be familiar to you as they have some ridiculous VW Golfs. They also hold the record for the world's fastest Golf in the 1/4 mile. Yes, absurdly awesome stuff. The MKII is built by Donkey Tec who we do not know much about but considering how their MKII Golf holds its own in this video they have some serious talent that is worthy of respect. In the process of running head to head Boba Motoring sets a quickest and fastest Golf 1/4 mile record (breaking their previous record of 8.6 @ 165) of 8.56 @ 173 miles per hour. Yes, insanely fast and achieved with a 2.0 liter motor pushing 53 psi of boost on E85. It helps the car only weighs 2138 pounds and has all wheel drive. Enjoy these two heavyweights slugging it out.

    In this video you got egghead in yellow jacket sucking Hannity's dick. And that dumb bitch talking about ignorance when everyone can obviously see which side they are leaning towards. Put I'm in one of those chairs and I'd rip fox news a new asshole. My news comes directly from my family in Syria and Palestine. Mainstream media IS NOT where you want to get your news from. Can't remember the last time actually watched tv for news or tv in general. The level of ignorance I see from people makes me rage.

    8 second 6-speed manual? Oh yes, that is exactly what we have here. This fourth gen Camaro features a 76mm at 27 psi of boost on a 365 cubic inch(5.98 liters) V8. The result is 1100+ horsepower sent through the very familiar T56 6-speed manual transmission. As this is a manual car it takes some serious driving skill to pilot down the 1320. Just take a look a the 7400 rpm launch and the way the car does a wheel stand. This guy can drive and drive he does to a new quickest GM manual 1/4 mile record of 8.63 seconds. The front end looks to be considerably modified so there is some serious work to the chassis and suspension here. It does not exactly have much in common with an OEM 4th gen Camaro chassis or suspension. This is pretty much just a drag car. Nevertheless, simply a badass car and badass driving.

    BMW knows how to market their product well. They have very clever advertisements out there such as the race track on top of the aircraft carrier or when they had the E82 1M drifting on top of a skyscraper. This video is a bit different as BMW is playing to a live crowd in South Africa. They have the police shut down the roads and then a group of F22 M235i's shows up and starts drifting around the strategically chosen circular street. It is very well done using the element of surprise from a flash mob to gain the attention of a crowd and having the cars be the main attraction. Smooth, clever, and well executed.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. Reminds me of the mother in the SouthPark clip:
