BMW’s M Division used to make cars known for three qualities: rear-drive, high-revving naturally-aspirated motors, and slick manual transmissions. Now, things are a little different, as exemplified by the new M8 Comp. These days, M-Cars have turbos, all-wheel drive and lightning-quick dual-clutch transmissions. To see if the spirit remains, Randy Pobst takes this bruiser out on Willow Springs for a fast lap. #TireRackHotLap #MotorTrend #BMW
One: a Le Mans-winning race car from the late 1960s. The other: a 21st century hybrid supercar meant to change perceptions of what electric motors could do for performance. Are they even comparable? Scott Evans drove both—yes, even the near-priceless 917—to find out. #MotorTrend #Porsche917 #Porsche918

Stream every episode of Put Up or Shut Up on MotorTrend Now! https://bit.ly/35YHGBd On this episode of Put Up Or Shut Up, host Brian Lohnes pits an owner- built 1966 Mustang Pro Touring car against a brand-new Porsche 911 Turbo S driven by pro driver Randy Pobst in a wheel-to-wheel road racing battle. Filmed at Willow Springs International Raceway, this is truly a fight between brilliant home engineering and the best technology a legendary car company produces. Can a guy's first car actually hang with more than 50 years of performance evolution from Porsche? Can a good old honkin' American V-8 stick it to the slick, turbocharged Porsche mill? We find out in the best way possible, by running them head-to-head as hard as they will go with great drivers! #Porsche #Mustang #MotorTrend
Some people think every Mustang should have a V-8, but we’re not part of that crew. This super-boosted Mustang gets a revised version of the turbo-four we loved in the old Focus RS — plus, tires, brakes and suspension parts from the top-dog Mustangs like the GT and Bullitt. With 330 horsepower and a lighter front end, Randy Pobst takes this hot hatch-powered pony car out for a blistering lap at Willow Springs. #Mustang #EcoBoost #TireRackHotLap #Ad
David Freiburger scored the car he'd wanted for 20-plus years, a 1971 Plymouth Road Runner. It was a decent car, mostly original with 95,000 miles on it, but a repaint had turned to chalk, and it looked ridiculous with tiny tires. In this episode of Roadkill Garage, we head to the Steve Dulcich Dog Farm to fix all of that and start turning it into a daily driver. #RoadkillGarage #RoadRunner #MotorTrend
