In The Heart Of England With A Porsche 718 Cayman

In England rain is a tradition. We look to the skies and wonder what that bright orb is above our heads. Eventually we recall dim memories of something called the sun. Well, a couple of weeks ago a little sun entered my life in the form of the latest version of the legendary Porsche Cayman (launch reviewed here), now designated with the number 718 in memory of a long-ago racing car. Inevitably, the weather failed to play ball and was typically appalling. I therefore am obliged to apologise for the dirty state of the car in some of my images. Continue reading

As I’ve mentioned before, I like a Subaru. They may not be trendy but they are dependable, rugged and well made. Now, Subaru have been pleased to announce that an all-new Subaru XV will make its global debut at the this year’s Geneva International Motor Show to be held in Switzerland from the 7th to the 19th of March.

Hybrid Ford Mustang & A New Golden Age of Automobiles

Bill Crittenden of the Crittenden Automotive Library prefers the modern approach to the Ford Mustang: Bill writes from the  USA:   Technology seems to be encroaching upon the most fun and interesting aspects of owning and driving automobiles: automatic transmissions, electric cars, self-driving cars, cars bloated by safety features and fuel economy regulations strangling design creativity. There’s a constant barrage of technological advancements vying for our attention on the dashboard that are replacing the charms of “well-weathered leather, hot metal and oil” of the cars of years gone by.

Not content to rest on their supercar laurels, for McLaren Automotive a new era will begin this March with the launch of the second generation of its Super Series at the Geneva International Motor Show.

Following a lengthy negotiation period lasting 11 months, independent Porsche specialist Autofarm has acquired a 911 RS 2.7 not seen in public for a decade. The Touring specification car, one of the first series produced, formed part of a stunning collection of 911s that had lain undisturbed and idle for ten years in France and only came to light after the widow of the late original owner also passed away last year.

Audi RSQ3 – Pocket-Sized Performance

If Audi see the tiniest gap in the car market they clearly feel compelled to fill it. Buyers of the more enthusiastic style of small hatch are already catered for by the German brand’s brilliant hot pocket rocket, the RS3. Thus it seems to me that to make, effectively, a taller version of the same thing seems wilfully pointless. So why do I love the Audi RSQ3 Performance so? Continue reading
