Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Driven – Video

By   December 12, 2012

This video features the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo concept car actually being driven on the road. The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Shooting-Brake (a.k.a. Wagon) has great styling that many prefer over the normal Porsche Panamera, plus it is a more practical car with the extra space. Most people didn’t think that the concept car was drivable, but this video shows that it was in fact drivable and hints that this car could be put into production. Only time will tell if this actually happens, but I for one think that they should build it.

Does a Subaru BRZ Compare to a Porsche 911 (991) Carrera S – Video

By   December 11, 2012

This video features two cars that you may not think are very close together. Both cars have had much praise and are on many of the car of the year lists. These cars are the Porsche 911 (991) Carrera S and the Subaru BRZ. This video compares the two cars and it is amazing how many similarities there are. While performance is certainly going to be better for the Porsche, the video also compares how the cars feel and handle to see what makes the Porsche 911 (991) Carrera S worth the extra money.

Also, before everyone starts commenting about the 0-60 times in the video, they are at least partly slow because these cars are being driven in very high altitude. The altitude is largely the factor, although some driver error may also have reduced the time.
