Porsche 911 Carrera: used 997 long-term test review (2014)

Rated 4 out of 54

the CAR road test team, 30 September 2014 09:30

Month 1 running a Porsche 911 (997) Carrera: introducing our second-hand 911 test As first drives in a new Porsche 911 go, this must rank pretty highly. Sun shining. Walk up to Guards Red 911, pop the front lid, throw in an overnight bag, then get behind the wheel and drive from Sussex to Le Mans to watch Porsche’s works ...

Ford Mustang (2015) review

Rated 4 out of 54

Chris Chilton, 26 September 2014 07:20

The arrival of the sixth generation of the iconic Ford Mustang isn’t just a big deal for America, this time it’s a big deal for UK car fans thanks to right-hand drive and a modern Euro-friendly downsized engine. But forget living out those Bullitt fantasies for a minute: is it actually any good? Read on for CAR magazine's Ford Mustang ...

Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster (2014) review

Rated 4 out of 54

CJ Hubbard, 24 September 2014 00:01

The Aston Marin V12 Vantage S is arguably one of the greatest Astons ever made – certainly it’s the best Aston currently on sale (sorry Vanquish). So naturally the firm wasn’t about to rest on its laurels, and is now building a V12 Vantage S Roadster as well. Thanks to the success of the previous V12 Vantage Roadster, which was ...

VW Golf GTI (2014) long-term test review of Mk7 GTI

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

the CAR road test team, 19 September 2014 12:31

Month 5 running a VW Golf GTI: we want a manual handbrake! From the outside looking in, non-enthusiasts must think all car magazines are deadly dull and boring, and probably full of stories about camshafts and axles. Well, I’m about to write 200 words about a handbrake, so if you don’t want to be implicated as a car-nerd cliché, look ...

BMW M235i (2014) long-term test review

Rated 4 out of 54

the CAR road test team, 12 September 2014 09:32

Month 1 running a BMW M235i: the introduction Days just haven’t been quite so sunny in the Our Cars pages since we lost the old 1-series M Coupe a couple of years back. Eschewing the tech overkill that blights the M5, there were no buttons to adjust steering or damping, just a simple six-speed manual gearbox, and a packet of ...

Audi TT video: a hot lap of Ascari in the new TTS

Audi TT video: a hot lap of Ascari in the new TTS
brightcove.createExperiences(); A few years ago, I drove the second-generation Audi TT-RS around Brands Hatch. It looked sharp, its five-cylinder engine sang with a nape-tingling burble, and it was bloody quick too. But boy did it understeer; I mean, this thing REALLY understeered. You accelerated through even moderately quick corners and the tyres spun, then they heated up and did it ...

Caterham Seven 160 (2014): long-term test review

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

the CAR road test team, 09 September 2014 11:25

Caterham Seven 160 diary notes: learning to climb in Confession time: the taller members of the CAR team are struggling to get in and out of the Kei-terham. I'm 6ft 2in and cannot physically contort myself into the snug cabin with the roof up. My flailing limbs and long back are simply too inflexible to get in. It's like an extremely ...

Audi RS6 Avant (2014) long-term test review

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

the CAR road test team, 08 September 2014 10:51

Month 2 running an Audi RS6: the road-test review bit Hot Audis blow a bit, well, hot and cold, you know that. But the RS6 is definitely hot. I love the way it looks both understated and impossible to mistake for a TDI, how special the interior feels, the way the doors phut shut like a silenced revolver. But mostly ...

BMW M4 Convertible (2014) review

Rated 4 out of 54

Chris Chilton, 05 September 2014 09:30

Heavy and a little wobbly, the old M3 Convertible struggled to show its screaming 4.0 V8 off in the best possible light. Has the switch to turbo power transformed its replacement, the new M4 Convertible? Give us the good new first. I’m presuming there is some good news about the new BMW M4 Convertible? There’s plenty. The kerbweight is down ...
