Until now we've been clinging to the idea of the 993 Carrera RS as the pinnacle of everything that embodies Porsche. It may be time to let that idea go.

This means you can expect to read some driving impressions soon, though to help frame those impressions around things you want to learn, please hit me in the comments with your curiosities about this new electric sports sedan from Stuttgart. … [Read more...] about I’m About To Drive The 750 Horsepower All-Electric Porsche Taycan; What Do You Want To Know?
Old Top Gear was full of clips of former hosts Clarkson, Hammond or May talking in a car, and then it would cut to the car powersliding from a few hundred yards away. It’s not difficult to imagine it wasn’t always the hosts doing the cool driving seen on screen.
