If ever there was better

If ever there was better evidence of biased road testers: "Come on, Range Rover! Come on, Range Rover! Yes! The Porsche's stuck... ha, ha, ha, ha!". Very balanced...

Another shameful example of Autocar trying to do Land Rover's PR for them. I'd say this video was even worse than the last one.

What about Post Codes?

I am surprised that the Porsche even got to the start with the known problem that the SatNav won't take full UK Post Codes.

The drag race wasn't quite 'exactly' the same test, the Cayenne Turbo here was wearing 295/35 summer tyres whilst the RR was wearing 275/45 all-terrain tyres.

I'm not for a moment suggesting a Cayenne can do what a Range Rover can do off-road, it can't, but at least make this highly irrelevant test a fair one.

I didn't care much for the autosuggestive script either.

How bloody ridiculous! Initially, the Cayenne was ahead, until, umm, it conveniently hit the previously-chewed muddy patch, whereas the Range Rover's 'course' was wet grass.

Autocar's credibility plummets, yet again.

Porsche : make Porsche and no

Funny

Although not the most balanced test ever, it is certainly more relevant than racing round the Nurburgring, as far more owners will be traversing slippery slopes than going racing (even if the majority will encounter nothing more challenging than the odd curb or two).

ok then steve, lets play fair

Another biased report

Come on Autocar, just because the Range Rover is clearly better, doesn't mean that the Porsche is not the superior product.  How could zis be any oder vay?

And !?

What did that prove?,they both do there thing on the Road,the RR wafts along, the Porsche is, certaintly in Turbo guise,an SUV supercar, yes, they both got up the Hill, but, what was the point of a race up the Hill?, of course they were going too struggle,wet Grass, greasy Mud, road tyres, moderately amusing, but that's all.

    Go-faster Boxster renders the Boxster S entirely redundant, but not the slower but still sweet basic model

    More visceral than the M4 coupé thanks to more audible exhaust and well-controlled swirl of air in the cabin, but dynamics suffer slightly
