    2017 Porsche 911 GTS, Manual - One Take
    TheSmokingTire



    Published on Jun 8, 2017
    The new Porsche 911 GTS offers an incredible blend of performance, comfort, and daily usability. With a 450-horsepower Twin-Turbo 3.0L Flat Six, now with upgraded turbos, the GTS offers the performance of the older 997 Turbo S in a more usable, composed package. It also features wider bodywork in all GTS models, not just the AWD models, both 7-speed manual and PDK gearboxes, and the center-lock wheels and brakes from the 911 Turbo model.

    FULL DISCLOSURE: Porsche provided round trip transportation and accommodations in Lake Tahoe, three meals, and the vehicle + insurance to facilitate this review.

    We receive a lot of questions about this vehicle in other videos so Karl decided to put together a high level tour of it and its history.

    Hopefully you'll find this tangentially interesting as an InRange topic and we'll use this as a link response to future questions about the vehicle.

    THESE are the RAREST Porsches in the World!
    Shmee150



    Published on Jun 9, 2017
    918 Spyder, Carrera GT, 911 GT1, 959! You name it, they are all here! Porsche is a brand with huge history and status, and at their home in Stuttgart you can find some of the very best super sports road cars and race cars. From the modern greats to the racing 917, 962, 956 and a huge amount of history from the early days and success of the 356.

    On arrival at the Porsche Museum I'm greeted by the brand new Tubo S Exclusive Series, now with 607hp and limited to just 500 cars. Before even making it inside a yellow 918 Spyder casually rolls along the road in e-Mode. Then miraculously I find myself behind the wheel of a GT3 RS, one of the finest track cars for the road, then it's finally into the museum to take a look at the history of Porsche.

    Thanks to Philipp and Oliver for the drive! http://instagram.com/flipper0711 http://instagram.com/oliverjuhnke

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    STREETGASM! THIS is Going to be Mental!!
    Shmee150



    Published on Jun 11, 2017
    The craziness begins in Amsterdam as the cars arrive for the start of StreetGasm! With the flag dropping the following morning, the 100 cars taking part descend upon the start location to get the mood rolling and the atmosphere started.

    The grid features some amazing cars like the Lamborghini Aventador SV, Novitec Huracan N-Largo S, Porsche GT3 RS and so may more. Better still though, the efforts made for wraps, outfits and putting together an awesome atmosphere are unrivalled.

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    350 HP GProgramm Resto-Mod 1979 Porsche 911 - One Take
    TheSmokingTire



    Published on Jun 15, 2017
    This 1979 "G-Body" Porsche 911 has been stripped to bare metal and rebuilt from the ground up to not only a very high performance standard, but also a very high cosmetic standard. It was built by GProgramm of Oyster Bay, NY, with the goal of bringing out the very best of classic 911 styling and modern performance in an air-cooled package. It has been converted from torsion beam to coil-over suspension, with big brakes, modern Fuchs-look wheels, and a 350-horsepower 3.4L "Twin Plug" flat-six.

    Pulled Over HOW MANY Times!?
    Shmee150



    Published on Jun 14, 2017
    Road blocks and unmarked cars; the police were out to get us on day two of StreetGasm as we head from Stuttgart to Lake Como. The adventure for our team with the FF and RENNtech AMG GT S took us along autobahns and up mountains during a truly amazing rally day.

    On arrival at Lake Como, following the views of the Splugenpass, we enjoyed a pool party with the cars parked around. Sadly though this ends my participation in StreetGasm this year as I'm off to other things but next time we'll be back for sure!

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    Blown Impala vs. Turbo Rotsun! - Roadkill Ep. 65
    Motor Trend Channel



    Published on Jun 16, 2017
    In this episode of Roadkill powered by Dodge, it’s a legit shootout of the performance potential of two hot project cars: the legendary Rotsun 1971 Datsun 240Z that was stuffed with a Ford 5.0L and a Power Stroke turbodiesel on Episode 64, and the 1969 Chevy Impala that’s loaded with the 489ci, supercharged big-block Chevy that used to be in Hot Rod magazine’s Crusher Camaro. Mike Finnegan sides with the Rotsun and David Freiburger bonds with the Impala as each guy heads separately to the chassis dyno to discover power numbers that remain a secret to the other host. Next, there’s a 500-mile road trip to Tucson Dragway for a heads-up showdown. Will the Impala run as quickly as it looks? Will the Rotsun fail to fail for two episodes in a row? You’ll have to find out by watching the bloodthirsty power showdown in this episode of Roadkill.

    I think that technology is amazing, and here at Penske Truck Leasing we’re using it to make our customer’s lives easier if a truck breakdown occurs. In the most recent past (and in some cases still in the present) the mere appearance of a CEL [check engine light] or MIL [malfunction indicator light] indicator on the dashboard would create an emotional response from the driver.

    In nearly every scenario, the driver would be left to wonder: can I continue driving this truck today to complete my run? Do I have to visit the shop to get it diagnosed and fixed? Is it possible that the fault code is minor enough that I could finish out the work week? Will this damage the truck and could I be responsible, if I still drive it?

    Thanks to a new remote diagnostics platform that’s part of our connected fleet solution, we’re at the industry forefront in helping answer those questions from thousands of miles away.

    The platform enables our in-house 24/7 roadside coordinators to provide faster assistance and improve the customer’s uptime. How do we accomplish this?
    • The proprietary device-neutral data platform allows us to connect our systems with nearly every truck and engine configuration or telematics service provider.
    • In near-real time, we have visibility to each set of manufacturer fault codes, and what their meanings are, at our fingertips.
    • We can tell the fleet manager, or the driver directly, whether or not immediate action is required.
    • If immediate action is required, we now have a head start on determining a repair plan, or if we need to, begin arrangements for a tow and a replacement truck.
    Prior to the advent of remote diagnostics, the road call would require a vendor to diagnose the fault, delaying the next step of a repair plan. In many cases, we can more confidently tell the customer to continue their deliveries while we schedule the truck for inspection the following day.

    With the premium on uptime, driver hours-of-service, and increasing critical time delivery windows, the time savings that a remote diagnostics platform provides to customers is extremely valuable.

    Remote diagnostics is a wonderful new step forward in this digital age that’s really enhanced the transportation industry. For companies like Penske, a connected fleet solutions platform provides for a technological path to one of our next frontiers: predictive vehicle maintenance.

    THIS is Why the Porsche 911 is so Special!
    Shmee150



    Published on Jun 18, 2017
    The Porsche 911 is arguably the most iconic sportscar on the planet, with over 1 million units sold across 7 generations of the model. For the Le Mans 24H weekend in France, I find myself driving around in the 911 Carrera, so what's it all about and why is this model so special?

    The 911 Carrera is the 'base' model of a line-up with around 25 different variations that can be had; Carrera, Carrera S, Carrera 4, 4S, GTS, Turbo, Turbo S, GT3, GT3 RS, GT2 RS and many of those different models available as Coupe, Convertible or Targa configurations.

    With new twin-turbocharged engines in the Porsche 911 for the 991.2 facelift, the 3.0l flat-6 makes 370PS and 450Nm. This particular car is well equipped and has the 7 speed PDK gearbox, Guards Red paint, and Carrera Classic wheels.

    So to land such a crown, what is it that the 911 has managed to do so well?

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    2WD versus AWD SUV: Which is best? | Auto Expert John Cadogan | Australia
    AutoExpertTV



    Published on Jun 17, 2017
    2WD versus AWD is the classic SUV dichotomy - and the default presumption is: AWD is better. But the truth is, a lot of this depends upon you and how you’ll actually be using the vehicle.
    Mary’s question about this is pretty typical:
    “I’m looking for a good SUV. I’ve been told AWD is a better safety choice as there is more control in braking. I am doing a lot of driving between Ulladulla and Sydney and often have the grandchildren with me, so this is obviously a concern. Can you help?”
    Some simple advice up front: If you want to go off-road adventuring exploring, on fire trails, whatever: get the AWD.
    You do not want to be in a position where you drive down some fire trail to an idyllic campsite, where you can burn the dinner and commune with nature, listen to the kids bitch about not having WiFi all night and then it rains in the morning and you can’t get home because … 2WD + muddy ascent equals fail.
    Regular trips to the snow, launching a boat on a ramp, rural property with driveway from Hell - all excellent reasons to own the AWD.
    But if you want an SUV really only to act in the capacity of a defacto family station wagon - and that’s all you want it to do - you probably don’t need AWD. In fact, if you’ve had a car all these years, and you’re getting an SUV, and you don’t plan on driving any differently, 2WD will be fine.
    The first thing to remember is that plenty of SUVs are only 2WD. Nissan’s Qashqai and Honda’s HR-V, for example, are 2WD only. And the base models of plenty of other SUVs - like the Mazda CX-5, Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson - the base models are all front drivers.
    At this point, let’s put Subaru in a box on its own - that company only does AWD. And it’s a unique-ish selling proposition. In fact, Subaru’s Symmetrical AWD is an excellent system and (together with their involvement in rally) it rocketed them from obscurity in the 1990s to where they are today in the mainstream.
    In Subaru’s case - all-wheel-drive really does mean all the wheels are driving, all the time. But in the majority of the rest of the market … not so much. We’ll get to that now.
    Most AWD systems are ‘on-demand’: meaning they are predominately, overwhelmingly, 2WD for the vast majority of their operational lives. AWD is only invoked when there is front wheel spin. When the front wheels lose it, that’s the demand for all-wheel drive.
    So let’s be perfectly clear - your common, and notionally AWD SUV, just driving down the street normally, is doing so under the tractive effort of just the front wheels. It they’re not threatening to spin, the rear wheels aren’t threatening to drive.
    Sure - you can lock AWD in, manually. Locking in AWD is a really good idea in that ‘rain overnight/camping’ scenario we discussed earlier.
    But it’s a really bad idea at other times - especially on high-traction surfaces, where driving in AWD will start scrubbing out the tyres and (potentially) break the transmission. Good safety tip there. Leave it in auto.
    You have to remember that the front end of the car and the rear end follow slightly different paths when you drive around curves. Therefore they travel different distances. Therefore they need to turn at different rates. If you lock them together by pressing the button, and traction levels are high, there’s an excellent chance you’ll break something.
    Subaru gets around this problem with a viscous coupling just behind the gearbox. It’s a bunch of precise hardware swimming in very thick silicone fluid, and the upshot is that it allows the front and rear prop shafts to turn at different rates without blowing up.
    Apart from additional traction in slippery conditions - the purported advantages of all-wheel-drive for ordinary drivers pretty much just fluff.
    AWD used to be a huge contributor to overall dynamic stability. But then, when the dinosaurs all died and Twitter was invented, cars came with a bunch of other stability-enhancing systems (like electronic stability control) that have levelled the playing field by making 2WD vehicles just as stable in most driving scenarios.
    People say AWD gives you more grip, but this is unmitigated bullshit. Grip is a function of rubber on the road - it’s not a function of which wheels are driving. What AWD does, however, is reduce the tractive effort at each wheel for any given throttle input.
    In other words - AWD makes it more likely you’ll be able to maintain traction in slippery conditions where equivalent 2WD system would be spinning their tits off like a pole dancer on crack.
