Porsche 911 GT3 RS vs Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

Published by on Dec 8th, 2014, No Comments

Chris Harris

We’re willing to bet that more than half of you would probably say that the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a way better car than the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. And that is purely based in the general consensus that people believe European cars are better than American cars.

Well, perhaps this comparison video will change your mind – or at least open it…

Sure, from the bat, the comparison between these two cars may seem unusual, but in actual fact it’s not that unusual – and naturally there is only one man that can truly test and compare these two cars, Mr. Chris Harris. (more…)

Sistine Chapel to be used for Porsche event

Sistine Chapel

Where do you go if you want to have a super exclusive, terribly expensive and one-of-a-kind event – and you are a luxury auto company? Well, why not a place that is decorated with priceless art, in a city known for its rich culture in a venue that has never been used for public events ever?

That place would be the most Holy place on Earth – the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican.

This is the location for a utterly exclusive and super expensive Porsche event. The automaker has announced that they are holding an event in the famed Sistine Chapel as part of a 5-day trip through Italy.

The event is essentially a classical music concert that includes a formal dinner and private tour of both the Chapel and the Vatican Museums.  (more…)

It seems that the level of Father’s Day gifts have gone through the roof this year!

A few weeks ago, we reported on one determined son who made a promise to his dad when he was a young boy. The promise was that when he gets older, he would give his dad the one thing he always wanted: a 1957 Chevy Bel Air.

The son spent the next two years saving for the sky blue beauty and finally, on Father’s Day this year, gave his dad the car.

Naturally, the video of the special moment went viral and had us and many people around the world in tears. And now it seems that one woman was looking to out-do the man with the Chevy Bel Air. (more…)

Porsche 911 Carrera S

Have we mentioned that we love the Drive channel on Youtube? Probably.

And today is no different. We also have a special place for a beautiful, newly built (and lets not forget super, super powerful) Porsche. This is why we are really excited about this video.

Matt Farah of the Drive channel takes the all new 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera S for a spin at the Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in California and really shows us what this beaut is capable of.

As per usual, we are insanely jealous but grateful enough to be able to see the car from up close; even if it is only on video.

Enjoy!

We love ourselves a little Porsche action every now and then. And with the new Porsche Cayman GT 4 on the horizon, it’s always nice to take a look at the other offerings in Porsche’s beautiful range.

The Porsche 918 Spyder has long been a favorite by many. It’s sleek lines and bug, bodacious body makes it a sports car that anyone would dream of having.

The Drive channel on YouTube regularly get to test drive cars like the 918 Spyder – and while we are insanely jealous of course, it’s still pretty cool to see it in action, even if its only on camera. (more…)

Porsche Cayman GT4 – Spy Shots

Porsche’s latest creation, the Cayman GT 4, is said to rival the existing Porsche 911 Carrera as well as the powerful Carrera S – and we must say, judging by these most recent spy shots, the Cayman looks dangerous. And we mean that in a good way.

The Cayman Gt 4 will be a powerful car, that much we know. What we also like is the sleek-meets-bulky look of the car that is basically yearning to be pushed to it’s limit.

Some of the features we do know of include a new aero kit and bigger breaks. It also has larger, lightweight wheels, a lower ride height and, as you can see in the pictures, a striking rear wing and ducktail spoiler. Impressive.  (more…)

You may or may not have seen this video sometime this week. But whether you have or haven’t, there’s no harm in seeing it again…and again… and again. Because this video is pure gold.

On Monday, a South African YouTube user uploaded a video of himself following a man who is busy test driving the Porsche 911 GT-3. While the first half of the video simply shows the Porsche driving smoothly, the second half is way more exciting and will definitely ensure many ‘laugh out loud’ moments. (more…)

It sure does seem like any petrol head’s dream to drive a Porsche GT3, an Aston Martin V12 Vantage S and a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series. Now imagine having a go at these three cars all in one day.

Well, thats what our favorite petrol head, Chris Harris, has the opportunity of doing recently.

Chris drives these cars (we’d like to think on behalf of us) and gives a short breakdown on what it feels like to be at the steer of any of these. Which car is best for road driving? And which one is best suited to a racing track?
