911 Turbo S Cab vs Jaguar F-Type V8 S Comparo

German sensibility vs British brawn
by Luke Vandezande

Porsche’s 911 Turbo S Cabriolet is like an open-top laser guided missile. It can steer with the rear wheels, is capable of a top speed just shy of the old GT2 and rockets to 60 mph in three seconds.

It comes with an interior that embarrasses most other cars in both quality and style, but in order to take one of them home, you’re looking at spending close to or above $200,000. Head-over-heels as I am for the stuff coming out of Zuffenhausen, it’s hard to get around how expensive it is and AutoGuide.com hot shoe Dave Pratte decided to make a bet with me.

He thought the Jaguar F-Type V8 S in all its supercharged V8 glory would be able to dissolve my Porsche-favoring pretension. Dave can be pretty silly, but I decided to humor him so we spent a day driving together to test his theory.

Porsche Developing Ferrari 458 Fighter

How does a quad-turbo, flat-eight Porsche exotic sound to you?

According to a recent report, the German automaker is working on its own competitor to the Ferrari 458 that could resemble the 918 Spyder in styling. In prototype form, the new sports car is rumored to be sporting a flat-eight engine displacing about four liters with four turbos to give it around 600 hp. The forced induction powerplant likely has over 400 lb-ft of torque.

The recent fire issues with the Porsche 911 GT3 hinted that the German automaker might have found the threshold of performance with its flat-six powerplants. As a result, Porsche could be facing the idea that its six-cylinder engines won’t be capable of competing with Ferrari’s V8s. It is believed that the company is developing a new family of engines, both turbocharged and naturally aspirated, that will come in four-, six- and eight-cylinder configurations. The next-generation Porsche Boxster and Cayman are expected to be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder mill.

The Compact Crossover, Redefined
by Luke Vandezande

Normally when the term “compact crossover” comes across the table you think of products like the Honda CR-V, the Ford Escape or the Toyota RAV4.

Of course you could always go with something a little bit nicer like an Audi Q5 or Mercedes-Benz GLK. In fact it’s hard to think of a company that doesn’t offer something in this segment and starting this year, Porsche is joining those ranks.

But as you can probably guess, its idea of what a small soft-road capable crossover should be is a little bit different than, well, anyone else.
Say Hello to the Macan

In the U.S., Porsche is offering two versions of the Macan: the S and Turbo. Both use twin-turbo V6 engines powering a rear-biased all-wheel drive system mated exclusively to Porsche’s seven-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission.

The Macan S has a 3.0-liter V6 that makes 340 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque and hits 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. Officially, it’s rated at 17 MPG city, 23 on the highway or an average of 19.

FAST FACTS
Engine: Turbocharged 3.0L V6 makes 340 hp and 339 lb-ft. Turbocharged 3.6L V6 makes 400 hp, 406 lb-ft.

Transmission: Seven-speed PDK.

Fuel economy: 17/23/19 MPG city/highway/combined.

Price: Macan S starts at $50,895 or $78,335 as tested. Macan Turbo starts at $73,295 or $102,435 as tested.
