Porsche Boy - BACK IN THE DAYZ High Quality

Unfortunately, with the tuner craze that would transpire in 2001 due to the release of The Fast and the Furious, racing games were on a rise with Need for Speed Underground and the Midnight Club series being some examples of games that capitalized and went mainstream. Yes, series such as the Tokyo Xtreme Racer series existed as far back as the Dreamcast (Or PSX if you want to get specific with the Tokyo Highway Challenge) but a new era of car fans was birthed from the mid-00s from these events alone.

It's time to say farewell to the EVO. So Mitsubishi will offer a limited-production 2015 Lancer Evolution Final Edition to celebrate its 10 generations, three of which were sold in the U.S. over 12 years. It will offer 1,600 numbered Final Edition models to the U.S. market for $37,995. The model is based off the current GSR, with exterior and interior enhancements not previously offered on it. There's a 5-speed transmission paired with a turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder 2-liter engine producing 303 hp and 305 lb-ft torque at 4,000 rpm. It has lightweight two-piece Brembo brake rotors up front, accompanied by Bilstein shock absorbers and Eibach springs at all four corners and all-wheel-drive, with a Final Edition badge in back, black-painted aluminum roof, dark chrome-painted Enkei alloy wheels and four colors: Pearl White, Rally Red, Mercury Gray and Octane Blue.

Way back in 1930, millionaire playboy and Bentley Motors chairman and race car driver Woolf Barnato received a bet he couldn't refuse - that his Bentley Speed Six could beat the train to Calais. He drove it and did. Now 85 years after the three-time Le Mans winner raced the 'Blue Train' from Cannes to Calais, modern day Bentley Boy Steven Kane has done a tense four-hour, 14-minute sprint against Saudi Arabia's only desert passenger train. The dune train takes a 480 km route from Riyadh to Damman on the Arabian Gulf. Kane's new Continental GT V8 S Convertible raced this locomotive on Aug. 15 and won, with six minutes to spare.

In 2001 he joined Trill Entertainment backed by its CEO the late Pimp C of UGK. Soon after, Trill independently released the album For My Thugz under his new alias Lil Boosie in 2002.[12] The album featured Pimp C, Young Bleed, Webbie while he also put out his first mixtape title Boosie 2002 (Advance) featuring contributions by Max Minelli and Pimp C.

In April 2014, Boosie announced that his sixth studio album Touchdown 2 Cause Hell would be released on July 15, 2014, but was later pushed back to September 23, 2014.[23] The album would be delayed yet again, until he unveiled the track list and announced a May 26 release date on April 22, 2015. The project features 17 new tracks with guest appearances from Rich Homie Quan on the single "Like A Man," Webbie on the street single "On That Level," as well as Chris Brown, Rick Ross, T.I. and Keyshia Cole.[24]

After Nissan cancelled production of the 1973 version, they bought it back again in 1989. This time with a new 2.6 Liter Twin-turbo charged engine and an all wheel drive concept, designed by Nismo. The Nissan Skyline E-BNR32 chassis "R32" had just been designed, and was chosen as a base to build a more competitive Group A race car. It was put into production by Nissan as the R32 Nissan Skyline GTR. read more. The 4th Generation was the "E-BCNR33" shortened to "R33" and made its debut in 1995. It had the same engine as the R32. The next generation of performance Skyline's to hit the streets was the "GT-BNR34" known as the "R34" was released in January 1999.

The Cayman has 385hp and 310lb ft from a 3.8-litre normally aspirated flat-six while, as tested, the Lotus's 3.5-litre supercharged V6 does 350hp and 295lb ft in a car weighing nearly a quarter of a tonne less. Lotus has also just confirmed an updated Cup with 360hp plus the same starting price and it would seem there is more where that came from on the way. For now both are manual-only, track-tyre shod circuit shredders with spanner-based adjustment for the fettlers but a no-nonsense purist streak straight out of the box. This test isn't about lap times and number crunching though, rather an investigation of which can work better on your traditional British back road, in this case the brutally bumpy ones criss-crossing Saddleworth Moor.

Starting at the front the GT3 front suspension, smaller (and completely unadorned) wheel and other changes mean there's none of the mush in the steering seen in 'civilian' Porsches. Yes, it's electrically assisted. And, no, there isn't the feel of the older cars. But it's brilliantly weighted, predictable and absolutely resolute in its reaction to your inputs. Point front end. It goes. The murmurs of feedback as the front wheels track cambers or load and unload aren't as clear as they once were but for an electric system it's as good as it gets.

Lovely - but not really that pared backThe natural balance of the Cayman, flat stance and the brilliant damping mean turn-in a 911 driver could only dream of. Porsche admits the standard setting of the dampers is the one used for the 'ring times and road driving, the firmer PASM mode only really for super smooth tracks. This and the fact GT Porsches permit a 15 per cent overspeed on the rear wheels even with everything fully on means the only mode button you really need press is the loud exhaust setting. Turn the nannies off if you will but there is movement aplenty even with them in place. With experience of this and the Cup tyres in the GT3 it'll be interesting to drive this car in the wet...

Saying that the beauty of the GT4 is its ability to overlap the various corner phases and give you confidence to play with its balance even at vaguely civilised speeds. Regular Porsches just don't do this any more but in the GT4 you can relish the sense of picking up the throttle before you've even started winding the lock off, rear axle working in partnership with the front to push the car into the turn. Meaning by the time you come to exit you're already in the engine's howling sweet spot as the lock releases, the relaxed stability control permitting just the subtlest sense of rotation under power. That you feel this even with Cup rubber on a dry road is a measure of how detailed the feedback is.

Lotus Exige CupThe Cayman might have a half cage in the back and natty little fabric door releases. But its track pretensions are just that, given the lashings of Alcantara, contrast stitching and toys found in the cabin. The Lotus is the real thing though, kill switch and extinguisher button occupying the space where you'd usually find a radio and only the bare minimum of the aluminium tub covered in any trim whatsoever.

Cup by name, Cup by nature!On these violently bumpy Pennine roads the steering requires a firm hand. It doesn't kick back like a 4C but the cambers and bumps are such that you need to be assertive to even maintain a straight and level course. Corners will have the sinews in your forearms straining, the front axle dictating pace more than it does in the Porsche. If you're greedy with the entry speed it feels ready to push on, more gas only exacerbating it where the diff-equipped Cayman has that lovely sense of throttle adjustability. Your only option is to lift momentarily to tuck it back in; a split second off the power compared with the Porsche but enough compartmentalise steering and throttle into separate tasks rather than merging one into the other. The pick-up and lack of weight mean you'll make up the ground in an instant but it's more about point and squirt and less about flow than you might expect of a Lotus.

As you'd expect, it's a much more sensory experience driving this car fast. The creaks through the structure, the whiff of fuel, the sneezes and shrieks of the supercharger - even the squelching of the dampers through big bumps - you get it all. Next time we get these two back to back it needs to involve a track and a stopwatch...

So the Lotus is the silver medal for those who didn't win the race to get a Cayman? Yes and no. Like that guy who self consciously wears his race overalls to the track day briefing there's a whiff of pretension about the Porsche's track garnish, given it's not really stripped back and minimalist at all. When Sport Auto's reaction to driving it back to back with a standard Exige is a narrow points victory for the Lotus and cry for a 'proper' pared back, track-spec RS version you know there's something in this.

Fair prices, and excellent work! I was from out of town and had problems with my GTI, so I brought it to their shop. I explained my situation, and because I needed to get back home in a hurry, they made my car a priority, and got me back on the road in record time! Very knowledgeable and friendly! 041b061a72
