Porsche managed to introduce a lot of improvements with the 2017 Boxster, making a better car on paper. Yet in practice, Top Gear host Chris Harris thinks the better Boxster isn't as good to drive anymore.

Another season of Top Gear without its old trio has come and gone, and holy cow, I felt no nostalgia at all this time around. It was just that good.
Say what you will about Jeremy Clarkson nowadays. He's too bombastic, too silly, too formulaic — but it's a formula that works. If you don't believe me, just watch his very first Top Gear appearance, and watch his own face as he sees it. Fair warning, the clip from the original show is deeply strange.
And we're not talking about Clarkson's ego.
Could this mean the spiritual successor to Top Gear is filming down under?
Giant stone heads (yes, you're reading this correctly) of The Grand Tour presenters Jeremy "Problematic" Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are being driven around Sydney today. Gizmodo has scored leaked footage of the heads.
Some of you may not be aware of this, but Porsche has apparently made a model called the 911 R. It is a car that some would say is quite adequate if you like that kind of thing. Top Gear’s Matt LeBlanc shares his thoughts on the new “fancy Beetle.”
Ignore that guy in the middle. With Chris Evans out of the picture for the hosting gig for the next season of Top Gear on the BBC, it's now confirmed that Matt LeBlanc — former Friends star, Episodes star and certified car fanatic — will be the sole host of the next season of the popular UK TV show.
Video: The new home of former Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May is The Grand Tour — an original series in development by Amazon, with 36 episodes planned for the next three years with a massive production budget. We don't know quite when The Grand Tour will launch around the world or when it'll even become available for streaming in Australia, but we do already have a pretty good idea of what to expect.
After just a single season of the new series of Top Gear, new host and studio anchor Chris Evans has announced he won't be sticking around for any longer. Evans was criticised throughout the new series' six-episode run for a number of reasons, including claims of on-set bullying and constant attacks from the British media.
In the past, Top Gear was all about the personalities. Now it's focus is clearly the cars.
In this never-before-seen extended trailer there's an Aston Martin Vulcan with Chris Harris at the wheel at the Abu Dhabi GP circuit. A McLaren 675 LT. A Ford Mustang driven by Rory doing a glorious, slow-motion burnout. Ariel's Nomad in Morocco. A Viper and a Corvette with Sabine and Chris inside battling it out with roof-mounted guns.
When the announcement came that former Top Gear hosts, Clarkson, Hammond and May would be making a new show for Amazon's on-demand platform, the internet was a little surprised. "Why not Netflix?" asked many commenters. After much head-scratching, Netflix's chief product officer has confirmed why the streaming giant passed on new Top Gear.
