Videos: Check out MotorWeek's 918 road test, 911 SC Cabriolet and 928 Retro Reviews

Thursday, May 28, 2015

Each week, MotorWeek posts Retro Reviews of our favorite (and least favorite) vehicles from years past, and sometimes the subject matter covers Porsches. We also keep an eye out for its new-car reviews, as the show provides great, unbiased evaluations of the vehicles it drives. In the past six days the the magazine-style TV show has uploaded its review of the 918 Spyder, 1983 911 SC Cabriolet, and 1985 928S (yes, the one with the 5.0-liter four-cam V8), which should keep you busy for roughly 19 minutes.

Our thoughts: We think the 918 Spyder review is as objective and accurate as usual, but wish the show had performed its regimen of acceleration, slalom, and braking tests. The 928S test car should have had a manual to exploit its exotic V8. And what's there not to like about an old-school air-cooled 911 with a convertible top being put through its paces? Not much.

Scroll down to watch all three reviews.
