Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk vs. Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio vs. Mercedes

The craft came to a stop in a cloud of dust. A slender figure emerged from inside the swoopy, sleek sheetmetal’loose skin, bulbous head, humanoid but with a hint of something extra’and a swarm of scientists descended, needing feedback. Needing data. Needing to know: Have we finally broken through?
I have always been fascinated with Area 51. Stories of secret test flights, of government scientists collaborating with alien pilots to push the limits of what we believed possible, hooked my childhood mind. And seeing Capt. Steven Hiller pilot his F/A-18 through the Grand Canyon, flying saucer in hot pursuit, only solidified my intrigue (Independence Day’s fictional nature notwithstanding)

Porsche 911 GT3 RS 2018 Review

Last current-generation Porsche 911 proves its mettle on track, where it’s as involving as it is invigorating

Moving on.

Even diehard track-day enthusiasts are now questioning the relevance of Nurburgring lap times. More to do with tyres, unhinged drivers and ‘special’ car prep than a representative real-world lap time is the general consensus. But the fact the latest Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a barely believable 24 seconds faster round the 20.6km Nordschleife than the model it replaces speaks volumes. Of course, the reason behind the new car’s phenomenal pace is ‘motorsport’, because the last hurrah for the 991-series Porsche 911 is the closest street-legal model yet to a Porsche race car. So what better place to test its track credentials than at the home of British motorsport.
