2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta vs 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 vs 2013 Porsche 911 C4S! [Head 2 Head Episode 42]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Carlos Lago and Randy Pobst restage our annual Best Driver’s Car competition with this year’s winning Porsche 911 Carrera 4S plus two contenders that missed the initial dance, the all-new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the explosive, exotic Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.

The Ferrari is the most powerful car we’ve ever taken around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with its ferocious 6.3-liter 731 horsepower V-12.

The Corvette comes packing the latest version of GM’s venerable small block, a 6.2-liter cam-in-block V-8 that kicks out 460 hp and 465 pound-feet of torque.

The Porsche and its relatively tiny 3.8-liter flat-6 might seem out gunned, but remember that for the last two years the 911 has beaten back every BDC challenger we’ve thrown at it.

Does the Corvette have what it takes to dethrone the 911? Does the wailing Ferrari? Watch and find out!

2014 Audi R8 Spyder vs 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet! [Head 2 Head Episode 37]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, it’s sibling rivalry time. Jonny Lieberman heads to the American Southwest in Utah with two of the best convertibles money can, the Audi R8 Spyder and the Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet. Amazingly, these two high-end, high performance wonders are both manufactured by the Volkswagen Automotive Group.

Starting in Las Vegas, Lieberman works his way to a near magical road in Escalante, Utah to figure out which of these German wonders is the best drop top. Why Utah? After getting a good look at Highway 12, you’ll never ask that question again. The two cars aren’t bad to look at either.

Will the Audi’s AWD grip and extra horsepower be enough to counter the Porsche’s lower weight and RWD sports car advantage? Will the manual Porsche have the strength and the chops to take on the higher tech, dual-clutch equipped R8?

490hp, small, very pretty: is that enough to make the fastest F-Type a 911 rival? And would an Aston do the job of a Brit roadster better? This video might expand on some of these points.

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend’s Carlos Lago takes a closer look at the technology that makes the Nissan GT-R and Porsche 911 Carrera S go around corners as fast as they do. Does technology take away from the driving experience or can it actually improve it?
