Abarth 124 Spider v Mazda MX-5 comparison

Read the full article here. The fact that both the Mazda MX-5 and the Abarth 124 Spider sports cars exist, side-by-side, is a good thing. In fact, they need each other to survive. You've heard it before: the issue with making a sports car is scale.

2016 Porsche Boxster S v Jaguar F-Type V6 S comparison

It has almost become a landmark moment in our evolution as humans. A neat title to slot in after all that complex baby, child, teenager, adult transition stuff. The midlife crisis. More than just a Faith No More song, it's a chance, once the children are relatively self-sufficient, the career trajectory is on a clear path and ideally there is a bit of equity in the family home, to put the focus back on yourself for what might not be a particularly smart decision...

But now, with the 2016 Porsche 718 Boxster, the 2.7-litre flat-six has made way for a 2.0-litre, turbocharged, boxer-four – pushing that six-cylinder Porsche goal just a little bit further away...
