In this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), we explore whether adding two turbos to the base Porsche 911 was a good idea. Porsche inadvertently created a problem four decades ago with the original 911 Turbo. It was so fast and so unique that its name became a legend. Ever since, “The Turbo” refers to just one car—the blown Porsche 911. Now, for the first time, the base 911 Carrera has turbos, too. Like them or not, turbochargers fundamentally change the way an engine delivers output. All turbocharged engines have lag; the question is whether the boost is managed well enough to not interfere with the driver’s commands. And, in this case, the bigger question is: Does the new downsized, turbocharged engine alter the 911 experience? MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editor Jason Cammisa secured a base Carrera to find out and spec’d it without performance-enhancing options—no rear-wheel steering or active antiroll bars to compensate for the rear-mounted engine’s weight, no big carbon-ceramic brakes to decrease unsprung weight, and no PDK dual-clutch automatic to help the 0-60 run. Then, he turned hall-of-fame race car driver Randy Pobst loose in the 911 to see how it would do around the Thunderhill Raceway Park 2-mile circuit. Without all the gizmos, can a base 911 keep up with the overachieving BMW M2 around a track? You’ll have to watch this episode to find out.

MotoMan drives the 2017 Porsche 991.2 – the Porsche 991 with the TWIN TURBO 3.0 Litre flat six engine. In the Mendocino National Forest – the California Redwoods because Porsche disturbed the applecart of it’s pecking order – one steeped in over 35 years of history: A turbo in a Porsche 911 is the pinnacle of that 911. So now, MotoMan goes on a bit of a different quest than usual to answer three questions: Does sound like a Porsche 911? Does it deliver power like a Porsche 911 and most importantly, does it still drive like a Porsche 911? MotoMan. Ordinary Car Guy.

In this episode of Head 2 Head presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com ), you’ll experience the closest contest in the show’s recent history. The brand-new Corvette Grand Sport combines the Stingray’s 460hp V-8 with the wide body from the Z06. The refreshed 911 Carrera S uses two turbochargers for the first time, making 420 hp from its rear-mounted flat-six. In execution, these two sports cars couldn’t be more different, and yet, they both offer supercar-slaying performance with a more affordable price tag. They’re both brilliant sports cars, but the big question is whether the Chevy’s outrageous cornering grip is enough to beat the 911’s ludicrous straight-line speed. Motor Trend Senior Features Editors Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman declare a virtual dead heat in this head-to-head—until they’re joined by pro racer Randy Pobst to set a tie-breaking lap time at the Willow Springs Raceway. In fact, our first-ever episode of Head 2 Head was between the previous versions of these cars, and the Corvette got clobbered. Will history repeat itself? Watch and find out.

2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S http://www.porsche.com/usa/models/911/911-carrera-4s/ The Porsche 991 is the internal designation for the seventh generation Porsche 911 which was unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show on 15 September as the replacement for the 997. The 991 is an entirely new platform, only the third since the original 911 launched in 1963 (the 996 of 1999 was the second new platform). The design has taken an evolutionary step, in keeping with the previous generation 997 and 996. The designer of the 991 is Porsche's Chief Designer Michael Mauer. Compared to the outgoing 997, the 991 is slightly larger, with the wheelbase increased by 100 mm (3.9 in) to 2,450 millimetres (96.5 in), and the overall length up by 70 mm (2.8 in) to 4,490 millimetres (176.8 in). A new transaxle was developed so that the rear wheels could be moved 76 millimetres (3 in) backward in relation to the position of the engine, which significantly improves the weight distribution and cornering performance of the new 911. Due to the use of high-strength steels, aluminium and some composites the weight has been reduced to 1,380 kg (3,040 lb) for the manual Carrera, rising to 1,605 kg (3,538 lb) for the four wheel drive Turbo model with PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung). PDK is available as an option for all 911 Carrera models as 7-speed transmission, featuring manual and automatic modes. Gears 1 to 6 have a sports ratio and top speed is reached in 6th gear. 7th gear has a long ratio and helps to reduce fuel consumption by keeping engine revs low. PDK is essentially two gearboxes in one and thus requires two clutches. For all 991 models PDK is produced by ZF Friedrichshafen. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_991 Follow me on Twitter https://twitter.com/SeMeyer888
