Porsche Boxster S takes on 911 in possible patricidal throwdown

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

Filed under: , , , ,

Porsche Boxster vs 911 drag race

In the 2013 Boxster, Porsche has created a supremely fun, supremely capable sports car. But is it good enough that it has negated the purpose of the 911? To address such a debate, Car and Driver has pitted the iconic 911 against the Boxster S in the latest edition of “Car and Driver: Abroad.”

The gestation of the Boxster is essentially encapsulated in the opening line of the video: “People used to say that the Boxster was a poor man’s Porsche, an imitation of the iconic 911, but the latest model has really come of age. In fact, it might now be the best sports car in the Porsche range.” While that notion has become the topic of much debate, C/D is doing more than pondering as both cars are taken to the limit on the dragstrip and the racetrack.

Which Porsche is faster in a straight line? Which car can more quickly and accurately navigate a racetrack? You’re just going to have to watch to find out! Check out the Porsche-centric comparo video below.

Ariel Atom 3.5 revealed in UK

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

Filed under: , , , ,

Ariel Motor Co. has announced a new version of its stripped-down Atom track star, the Atom 3.5. Following up on the existing Atom 3 model, both the numeration and the spec sheet call this out as an upgrade, rather than a totally new model from the British builder.

Cosmetic changes may be hard to spot for the casual observer (and the fact that Ariel doesn’t have much quality photography available doesn’t help, either). The 3.5 has new a new lighting system front and rear, with twin projector headlamps and LED turn signals and taillights. The car’s front “hood” has been revised, as well.

Mechanically the Atom 3.5 boasts chassis tweaks that are products of the development of the hardcore Atom V8 and Mugen models, which allow this new Ariel to be stiffer, with more torsional rigidity than ever. Revised engine mounts and dampers propose a more livable Atom ride quality, too.

Power for the 3.5 still comes from a Honda 2.0-liter four-cylinder, in both naturally aspirated and supercharged flavors. The NA motor stays steady with an output of 245 horsepower while the supercharged motor gets bumped up to 315 hp.

Follow on below for the Ariel Motor Co. press release. Please note: we’ve got a couple calls in to Ariel, hoping for more in the way of photography of the Atom 3.5, too – we’ll be sure to update this post if we get a response. We’ve also placed a call to Virginia-based TMI Autotech, which is licensed to manufacturer and sell the Atom in our market, to see if North American customers will be able to take advantage of the 3.5′s developments as well. We’ll update this post as word becomes available.
