This week on evo – new Porsche 911, Ferrari F12 tdf and more

A look at the most exciting things from the world of evo this week

Think the car industry is winding down ahead of the year’s end? Not a bit of it – and over the past week, we’ve had drives in some of the year’s most significant performance cars to prove it.

Perhaps most significant of those is the new, turbocharged Porsche 911 Carrera S. Features editor Henry Catchpole has now driven the new car and recorded his thoughts on video – you can catch it below. Still, Ferrari’s F12 tdf shows what’s possible with a naturally-aspirated engine…

But has this move harmed its throttle response and its sound? We’ve driven the new car – in a rather vibrant hue – and discovered that there’s still a lot to like.

Ferrari F12 tdf review

Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe review

evo’s entire road test team has been hard at work this week – this time, it’s Richard Meaden’s turn, in our review of the new C63 Coupe.

With wide arches and aggressive styling it’s virtually a Black Series in terms of looks – and in terms of performance it’s also right up there.

The latest, on the new Mk4 car, adds a series of tasty options to the little roadster, not least a pair of shapely seats from which the Sport Recaro edition takes its name. Read all the details here.
