These VW Group hard-hitters give all they got in this 1-km sprint. The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is a quick machine. With a quarter-mile time of 10.7 seconds (for the 2021 model year), it's one of the reasons why electric vehicles today have gained a reputation in straight-line races unlike before. Well, apart from several Tesla drag races we've seen, of course. But does the all-electric Porsche sedan has what it takes to win a drag race against the 911 Turbo S and Audi RS6 Avant?

We never thought this day would come. Dodge doesn't officially sell cars in the UK. The American company had to pull out of the market in 2010 due to low sales, but that doesn't mean that you can't buy Dodge cars from across the Atlantic. Courtesy of importers, you still can get your hands on the American muscle cars even if you're in that part of the world. However, we haven't seen Carwow pit a Dodge Challenger in a drag race. For a YouTube channel that gained popularity from its weekly drag races, an appearance of the American muscle is a must – and this is that day.

Porsche ambassador Mark Webber drove a prototype and he loved it. The 718 and 911 sports car lineups remain at the core of Porsche, but the Zuffenhausen brand has greatly expanded its portfolio to lure in different customers. There are no fewer than three SUVs (Macan, Cayenne, Cayenne Coupe) that carry the Porsche crest, along with the Panamera liftback/wagon duo and the Taycan electric sedan . In a few weeks, the portfolio will further grow with the addition of the Taycan Cross Turismo. Initially teased as a concept car during the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the zero-emissions wagon in production form is inching closer. Porsche took to Instagram to reveal brand ambassador and former Formula 1 driver Mark Webber had the opportunity to drive a thinly camouflaged prototype. The 44-year-old Australian professional racing driver says the reveal will take place within the next two months.

Following a teaser released earlier this week, Mercedes-Benz has revealed the 2014 SLS AMG GT Final Edition. The last hurrah for the SLS will be built in a limited series of 350 units which will feature the same V8 6.3-liter engine from the regular SLS AMG GT version outputting 591 HP (435 kW). This special edition is distinguished by a carbon fiber hood and front splitter, along with a redesigned front bumper and new brakes.
