    Potentially an interesting drag race here as it pits three very fast cars each representing their nation against each other but Autocar screws the whole thing up. The Nissan GTR and the Porsche 911 Turbo S are not all that different from each other. Both feature twin turbo six-cylinder powerplants, both have all wheel drive, and both have dual clutch transmissions. The GTR is heavier however with less torque on paper. No direct fuel injection for the VR38DETT motor and of course a front engine layout. It's also quite a bit cheaper than the Porsche. The best horsepower per dollar value of the trio is the Hellcat but you already knew that. Just as you likely knew it is the heaviest car of the trio. We're talking 400 kg more than the 911 Turbo S or in other words more than 800 pounds. As this is Autocar they have no clue how to launch the Hellcat. The car is still spinning its tires when they go green. Why? What's the point of the drag race if the Hellcat never even gets a chance to hook up? Of course they also provide no data because it's Autocar and we should all just be happy they aren't doing this in the rain while sipping tea. They try again and the Hellcat again does its stupid spin until the tires go green routine. At no point do they think of going from a roll because producing quality performance comparisons escapes the people at Autocar. Essentially we get a frustrating and pointless drag race video. Someone tell these idiots at Autocar THIS is how you drag race a Hellcat.

    2017 seems early for a debut of a new generation from McLaren, doesn't it? The 650S is going strong and the 675LT takes performance into the stratosphere. McLaren likely wants to respond to the Ferrari 488 GTB with a new car even though they have the performance edge currently. The fact is the 650S and 675LT are themselves reworked versions of the MP4-12C which launched as a 2012 model. If the P14 model (that is the internal codename) does indeed launch next year it will be able to do so thanks to speedy development from reworking the 650S carbon tub and M838T motor. Will they add direct injection? Will they make it even lighter? Will they increase displacement? We will have to wait and see. Apparently McLaren wants to push the P14 well past the 570S which is quite close to the performance of the 650S. The revised V8 is also expected to lend itself to a V6 variant although what model that would go into is anyone's guess. Maybe an even cheaper entry level model? Either way the P14 will push McLaren well past what Ferrari offers in the 488 GTB which itself is trying to catch the 650S. Source

    This is beautiful and keeps things simple and elegant. A yellow Porsche already screams for attention so no need to go crazy on the rims. Yes, 21 inch wheels sound big but the wheels look right at home on this 991 Carrera 4S. They are a wide 21x12 in back and 21x9.5 in front. The brushed finish with a gloss clear coat looks fantastic. Add in a drop and window tint and the result is one hell of a hot C4S.
