Corvette C7 vs Porsche 991 Carrera S

Chris Harris from /Drive did comparison between Corvette C7 and Porsche 991 Carrera S.

Of course, a lot of you will say “It’s Apple to Orange.” and you’re right, 991 Carrera S is roughly $100k! If you add all the goodies and other options, it’ll be almost double of C7.

But take out the price, which one do you want?


The 10 Best Engines of the Last 20 Years

Jalopnik did another The 10 Best xxx. This time was best engines. What do you think? Do you agree with this list?

10.) Honda K20

The 10 Best Engines Of The Last 20 YearsExpand

This is the point where VTEC kicks in, and it’s very yo.

The Stig’s Rustbelt Cousin:

200(ish) HP, 8000+ RPM redline, and smooth up and down the rev range. The lack of low-end torque is more than made up for by the way it begs to be redlined, and loves every minute of it. Easy to make more power with simple bolt-ons and reprogramming, with Honda reliability to boot.

9.) Toyota 1LR-GUE V10

The 10 Best Engines Of The Last 20 YearsExpand

Developed by Yamaha just like the Volvo V8 that powers the Noble M600, this 72-degree 4.8-liter V10 is so rev-happy that you need digital instruments to follow its moves. It also sounds like a well lubricated dream.

The Lexus LFA is worth every penny for this engine alone.4

8.) AMC 4.0

The 10 Best Engines Of The Last 20 YearsExpand

The first incarnation of AMC’s 4.0 straight-six dates back to 1964. I know. But hear me out!

The 4.0 liter version came out in 1986, but was reworked and redesigned all through the 1990s and into the mid 2000s. The one in the picture is full of names because it’s the 5 millionth 4.0 engine built produced on the Greenlee Block Line.


A friend had a Comanche with the 4.0. It was a damn beast.

I had a Cherokee with the 4.0. What a engine. Goobs of power. It would run with zero fluids in it. I think mine ended up with 200k miles on it. The only thing I ever replaced was belts and plugs.


Dear god yes. I knew five people in college with Cherokees powered by these beasts. The rest of the trucks usually fell apart, but these things never. Fucking. Quit.

One even went 23,000 miles, driven hard, with a leaking seal somewhere, without an oil change. Sold it and the new owner rebuilt it, after driving it home 400 miles through a New England winter storm. Incredible.

A legend in its spare time.

7.) Alfa Romeo V6 24V

The 10 Best Engines Of The Last 20 Years789Expand

I’m bending the rules again slightly since the quattrovalvole version of the glorious Alfa V6 is 22-years old now, but I agree with Chris. It has to be on the list.

It’s one of the most beautiful engines ever made, it sounds fantastic and got the power too. You don’t need more.

6.) Toyota 2JZ-GTE

The 10 Best Engines Of The Last 20 Years13Expand

The 2JZ-GTE with VVT-i was created to fight Nissan’s brilliant engines in the world of boost and variable valve-timing. The basic engine debuted in 1991, but its variable-timing version came out in 1997, so it’s good after all.

Put a 2JZ-GTE into literally anything, and you’ll be good too.

5.) Buick V6 Series 2 3800

The 10 Best Engines Of The Last 20 YearsExpand

One of GM’s big shots. N2Skylark:

Lots of horsepower (for its day), torque, smoothness, durability, and reliability. Back in the day, full-size cars like the LeSabre were rated at 30mpg highway with it.

Scot Zediker:

I’ve said for some time that if GM could build an entire car as well as they can build an engine, they would rule the world.

4.) Volkswagen TFSI

The 10 Best Engines Of The Last 20 YearsExpand

It’s supercharged for low-end torque, it’s turbocharged for high-end torque and fuel economy, it’s compact, light and extremely versatile.171819

SonicRS Fanboy:

This engine is in everything from the GTI, A3 to the boring Audi Q5, and Tiguan to the iconic Golf R and it can be tuned to insanely high horsepower and return 30mpg in the right hands.

3.) Ford Ecoboost V6

The 10 Best Engines Of The Last 20 YearsExpand


I am prepared for the backlash, but I firmly believe it: Ford’s EcoBoost V6.

It has, for the first time in history, given the top truck line a V6 that outperforms the V8s in both horsepower, torque, and MPG. While there may be engines out there that crank out more power than the EcoBoost, none have come close to changing the half ton pick up truck landscape like this motor has. And this is VERY important to meeting CAFE regulations.

I’m supportive.

2.) BMW S54

We all want one, right? So that pretty much settles it.2122

1.) GM LS Series

The 10 Best Engines Of The Last 20 YearsExpand

It just works.


Horsepower, torque, simplicity, compact V8 format, inexpensive relative to complex OHC engines, and capable of providing respectable fuel economy.


Compact. Light. Cheap. Easy to work on. Open modification. Land, Sea and Air.

Subaru Collaboration…

Subaru love to collab with everything. Famous one is collab with Toyota to bring out 86/BRZ. In the Otaku world, 86/BRZ isn’t much of big deal. They know Subaru collab by anime. Few years back, Subaru collab with Gainax to make a short series called “Houkago no Pleiades” (if you’re interested, check the youtube).

Now, they have collab with one of last year’s popular anime series “Shingeki no Kyojin” (in English “Attack on Titans”) to make new commercial for their new Subaru Forester.
