Porsche 918 Vs McLaren P1 at Laguna Seca

Right now, as you are probably aware, the current crop of hypercars that has everyone buzzing are the hybrids from Ferrari, McLaren, and Porsche. However, there haven’t been too many comparison tests done with raw performance numbers to determine which is fastest. On paper, it seems that the LaFerrari is the fastest, but that cannot be confirmed until someone takes all three cars and tests them around a track. Slowly though, some comparisons are starting to hit the web. The latest one is brought to us by MotorTrend and it puts the McLaren P1 against Porsche 918 Spyder at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, and the results are quite interesting.

Porsche Confirms Boxster Spyder

The 911 range is the defacto go-to Porsche for the wealthy, the driving enthusiasts have always known that the Boxster/Cayman twins are the sweet spot in the range. The smaller mid-engine sports cars have inherently a better balance as well as less weight to throw around but the relative lack of power has always held the Boxster/Cayman twins from being the best that it could be. Although Porsche has just recently released the new Cayman GT4, they have officially announced that the Boxster Spyder is coming this year.

Aston Martin To Continue With V12, Manual

With concerns about fuel economy, emissions, and safety in today’s global automotive society, the driving enthusiasts are largely forgotten when automakers are planning out their future products and direction.  As to be expected, most automakers are now focusing on integrating forced induction engines, and hybrid-electric technology into their product lineup and brand image.  However, there are some automakers that feel like hybrids and downsizing doesn’t fit within their core values. In an interview with Car And Driver, Aston-Martin’s new CEO Andy Palmer, confirmed that they will continue to offer V12 engines and manual transmissions in their future line-up.

RWD Lamborghini Huracan Is Coming

Ever since Audi took ownership of Lamborghini way back in 1998, they have been injecting some of their own German DNA in to the brand’s Italian roots. One such example is when Lamborghini decided it should have it’s cars send power to all four wheels, following suit of their parent company Audi whose Quattro AWD system has gained the brand fame worldwide. Since the Diablo VT (Viscous Traction), their first AWD car, Lamborghini has engineered all their newer models have been sending power to all four wheels. However, they did make a limited run of RWD Gallardos, dubbed the LP550-2 Balboni Edition, to thank head test driver Valentino Balboni for his amazing 40 years of service. Now UK magazine, EVO, has confirmed that the raging bull is planning on releasing a rear wheel drive version of their new Huracan supercar.

Lotus To Build SUV?

It seems that every automaker nowadays is trying to catch the SUV/Crossover wave as consumers continue to buy more and more of them.  This makes sense as SUVs/Crossovers are profitable, especially at high volume. However, does it make sense to build one if it doesn’t coincide with the brand ethos or the rest of an automaker’s lineup? Lotus, a brand synonymous with lightweight track toys, has publicly said that their next product will most likely be an SUV.

McLaren Confirms New Sport Series Variants

From a business standpoint, McLaren has done really well to mitigate the high cost of a small, high-performance car manufacturer by producing many models with the same components, albeit modified to fit the proper application. They use modified versions of their 3.8L twin turbo V8 and the same basic carbon fiber monocoque construction in every car they currently make. So it should be no surprise that McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt has confirmed in an interview with Car & Driver that they are planning to produce quite a few different variants of their new Sport Series entry-level car when it finally debuts in the near future.

Geneva 2015: McLaren 675LT

In the last decade or so, we have seen more road cars come out of McLaren than ever in it’s entire history. The boys over at Woking have shown the world that they are serious when it comes to making fast cars on and off the track. At the moment, their roadcar lineup consists of the wonderful 650S and the monstrous P1. McLaren has now released the 675 LT, which splits the difference between the 650S and the P1 in terms of price point and performance. While I doubt that anyone who has ever driven a McLaren 650S thought that it needed more power, McLaren decided to add more power because why not?
