Porsche 911 owners have always known their cars were fast and fun, but Porsche has managed to make the 2021 911 Turbo S even faster and definitely more fun. The faster can be attributed in part to the revamped 3.7-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine developing 640 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. This is 60 horses and 37 lb-ft above the previous model. Porsche has published a 0-60 time of 2.6 seconds, but they can be a bit conservative so you might be able to shave off a little bit from their time.
Electric car aficionados may only be interested in the statistic that the 2020 Porsche Taycan beat the Tesla Model S P100D in Ludicrous mode in the quarter-mile. That’s impressive but it doesn’t mean a lot when you and your passengers are stuck in traffic with nobody moving. That’s when your thoughts will turn inward so it’s time to look at the Taycan’s interior and how it will treat your passengers.

The 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera is one of the new 992 models. This new generation has received some significant changes to keep it fresh. All new 992s are getting a wider stance previously used only on the GTS and all-wheel-drive models. This gives the 911 Carrera a more muscular look and a wider wheel track including a 2-inch wider front wheel spacing. Other changes include slightly flattened headlight bubbles, a square front trunk lid, the addition of a reflector bar visually connecting the rear taillights, and the rear spoiler has been widened to extend into the fenders.
The 2020 Bentley Flying Spur is now in its third generation, and Bentley has raised the bar with this new model. The first sign of the grand luxury Bentley intended to show comes with the massive vertical front grille. Joining the new grille design is the legendary “Flying B” hood ornament to show unmistakably this is a Bentley to remember.
The 2020 Porsche Taycan is Porsche’s first modern all-electric vehicle, but it’s more than that and it’s not Porsche’s first electric car. In 1898 Porsche entered the vehicle market with an electric car. However, the Taycan is the world’s first all-electric sports car with the fit and finish you would expect from Porsche.
Have you heard of a hybrid vehicle that emits pops from the exhaust system when decelerating or accelerating through the gears? You will hear those sounds reminiscent of a sports car engine when you drive the new 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. This isn’t your grandmother’s hybrid.
With summer now here, it’s a great time to drive a convertible, and a perfect choice is the 2020 Porsche 718 Spyder. Even if you don’t have sunny skies you will still get a thrill driving the 718 Spyder. Even sitting still the Spyder has a unique look with the radiator heat exhaust port just ahead of the hood and side air bypass vents that move air out ahead of the front wheels to improve downforce. The rear spoiler activates at 75 MPH and along with the rear diffuser offers owners the first Boxster member to actively create rear axle downforce. There is also the dual humps behind the seats which pay homage to the Porsche 550 Spyder and the two previous Boxster Spyders.
