The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is a serious machine. Unlike other sports EV’s, which seem to offer thrilling acceleration but ultimately mean to replace driving, rather than improving it, the Taycan is the driver’s EV. It’s the EV designed and built by people who have won every major endurance race ever hosted. Its new 800V architecture, stunning good looks, and positively bonkers pace combined with the seriousness of build quality you get from Porsche, combines to make the best production EV money can buy.
Ford’s first mass-market electric car is not only designed to look like a Mustang, it’s named after the world’s most famous muscle car, too. The Mustang Mach E comes with RWD or AWD, with up to a 370-mile range and two battery choices, but it’s not just the powertrain that’s radical – a massive Tesla-style screen dominates the interior, and the door handles have been deleted altogether. So, what do you think?
The Hummer was an angular, militaristic, go-anywhere truck that became an emblem of 1990s pop culture. General Motors’ Hummer was a coveted status symbol sought by celebrities and a sometimes mocked and vilified example of how far of America’s newfound love for SUVs had gone. But in 2009, GM put several of its brands to the ax, including Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Saab, and Hummer. While the Hummer had a brief lifespan of just under two decades, it made a lasting impression on the auto industry.
Victor Holtorf was born with an engineer’s mind. And growing up on a ranch in eastern Colorado afforded him ample opportunity to tinker with various machinery and pickup trucks. Once he reached driving age, Holtorf’s incurable urge to take things apart and understand them spread to his cars. While his earlier car tastes revolved around American muscle, Victor eventually found himself buying and working on vintage foreign classics. He would eventually land himself the highest horsepower version of the famed Lamborghini Countach, the LP5000 Quattrovalvole, featuring six downdraft Weber caburetors and four valves per cylinder. “I love carburetors,” says Holtorf. “I know fuel injection is better for a lot of reasons, but with a carburetor you have instant throttle response. There’s not even a fraction of a second delay when you push the throttle and something happens. Plus, you can hear [the carburetors], and sometimes you smell the gasoline when you really get on the gas hard and all the pumps are shooting the gas in. It’s a sensory feast.”
