Each year the guys at Motor Trend make a selection of some of the finest sports cars on sale and take them through several tests in order to determine a winner as the Best Driver’s Car for the year.
In the video that follows, the track-oriented Porsche 911 GT3 RS (Type 997 MK2) is being driven hard by Randy Pobst (aka “The Rocket”) on Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca . The lap time achieved is 1:36.77 which is less than half a second slower than that posted by Lexus LFA, the fastest car tested by Motor Trend for 2011’s Best Driver’s Car. But let’s not forget that the Lexus is almost three times as expensive and the GT3 RS has no paddle shift gadgetry, but a good old-fashioned manual gearbox… which may add some time depending on the skills of the driver.
You can enjoy the video after the jump and read Randy’s impressions on MotorTrend.com.

The same old unmistakable 911 shape but with completely reworked design elements and body. As Porsche, themselves, say in their latest press release: “At 48 the Porsche 911 Carrera is younger than ever”. I tend to agree 100% with that statement. The 911 Carrera has never looked so beautiful and elegant until the first photos of the type 991 appeared online. It will make its official debut at the 2011 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show.
This new 911 Carrera S is equipped with a 3.8-litre boxer engine found in the regular place (at the back) and delivers 400 hp (294 kW). Compared to its predecessor the power has been increased by 15 hp, but fuel consumption went down by 14% based on the New European Driving Cycle to achieve a mere 8.7 l/100 km (or 32 mpg).
Watch the official promo video that was released a few days ago after the jump.

Ahhhh! Feels like going back in time when watching old episodes of Top Gear – a show that will forever stay in the hearts of many car fans. And guess what… Jeremy had lots of hair back then and there was the Black Stig. Too bad that when the Stig was setting the lap time at the Top Gear’s airport track it was raining and he couldn’t achieve a better time for the 911 Turbo.
For those of you that can’t really tell the difference between the models in the 911 line up there is a surprisingly simple explanation for you at the end of the video. You can watch the Top Gear’s review after the jump.

There is just no possible way a Porschephile (or any other car enthusiast for that matter) wouldn’t like Porsche’s advertisements. Always witty and make you dream a little. For me, they somehow remind me of my childhood memories when even seeing a Porsche was like a dream come true. Enjoy this brand new ad which was made for the PorscheEveryday.com website where owners are encouraged to share their stories of “making the mundane magical in their Porsche”. Watch the video after the jump.

At first it might seem to most of you that a big SUV doesn’t stand a chance against such an iconic sports car as the 911, but the Cayenne Turbo might prove you wrong. Really wrong!
In fact, the guys behind the UK car magazine Autocar went to a handling circuit to pit the two Porsches against each other. Watch the video comparison for yourself after the jump.
