2015 Mustang EcoBoost VS. Merkur XR4Ti

Being the owner of a Merkur XR4Ti and the son of another XR owner, we were both very excited when we heard Ford was reviving the 2.3 Turbo engine in the Mustang. The Mustang hasn't been powered by a 2.3 Turbo since the SVO which ended production in 1986 and featured the same engine that was slotted into a Sierra… » 10/31/14 8:09pm 10/31/14 8:09pm

​This Turbo Diesel Cafe Racer Is Powered By Bacon

Allow me to list some of the things I love: Motorcycles, turbos, diesel, and bacon. Through the wonders of Marketing, all of these things have coalesced into a diesel cafe racer that's making a cross-country trip powered by bacon grease. And yes, it smells like breakfast rolling down the road. » 8/05/14 8:33pm 8/05/14 8:33pm

Video: Porsche 991 Turbo S vs. Dodge Viper GTS

The SRT Dodge Viper hasn't been doing so well recently, despite its nearly complete ground-up redesign. It's fast, brash, light, and raw, and is seemingly what everyone on Jalopnik wants: a supercar with a manual gearbox and the minimum number of nannies required by US law. The Porsche 991 Turbo S is the exact… » 5/23/14 11:39am 5/23/14 11:39am

The Smoking Tire Project Fiesta ST Gets COBB Stage 1

After we filmed the somewhat controversial Ford Fiesta ST vs. BMW E46 M3 video a month or so back, we as a group were so smitten with the Fiesta ST's ludicrous value for money proposition that our cameraman and resident mad scientist Thaddeus Brown went straight to the dealership and traded in his 2006 Mini Cooper S… » 1/31/14 12:57pm 1/31/14 12:57pm

Video: Can an Air Suspension Solve the "One Car for Everything" Problem?

As I noted when I reviewed the 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo recently, not everyone wants what I want, which is to say that not everyone wants 6 cars in their garage, each with a very specific purpose. For most people, that's just not realistic. A lot of these people want one car that does it all: practicality for the… » 10/15/13 3:32pm 10/15/13 3:32pm

Video: The 2014 Porsche Panamera is a Supercar and a Daily Driver in One

This is the new Panamera Turbo, and... no, really. This is the new Panamera Turbo, not the old one. They changed it, I swear. You just can't really see it unless you look close. See in that picture, they moved the license plate down and there's a new side skirt? Right, new, like I said. Some people don't like the… » 10/07/13 1:27pm 10/07/13 1:27pm

Turbo could be the sweetest surprise of the summer

Every once in a while, there's an animated film that has a totally bizarre premise, which should not work at all. And yet, the result is actually kind of great. Gnomeo and Juliet was one such movie, and so is Turbo, the story of a snail that wants to be a race car. Turbo could be the summer's most pleasant surprise. » 7/18/13 8:14am 7/18/13 8:14am

Here's What It's Like To Drive a 430-hp Subaru BRZ

We love the Scion FRS and Subaru BRZ. They are affordable, practical, and you can drive them at 10/10ths basically all the time. But what happens to a BRZ when you add enough boost to more than double the horsepower and more than triple the torque output? We grabbed the keys to Crawford Performance's BRZ and found out. » 5/13/13 3:59pm 5/13/13 3:59pm
