BMW’s Beluga Whale – 2020 BMW X7 xDrive50i Review

BMW's model lineup is the most expansive it has ever been. We recently spent a week with the X7 xDrive50i to get a Christmas tree. While it accomplished that task effortlessly, the X7 also proved itself a comfortable partner for extended drives. However, is that enough to wear the crown of the Ultimate Driving Machine? Click the link for our full review of this BMW behemoth.

1. Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014 – 2015)

1. Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014 – 2015) I didn’t get a chance to drive the 458 Speciale until the fall of 2018. Porsche’s GT3 RS 4.0 had sat atop my list of the best cars since 2012 and in just a few short minutes behind the wheel of the Speciale all those fond memories of the Porsche faded into the past. While the Porsche was amazing, the Speciale [...]

2. Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 (2011 – 2012)

2. Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 (2011 – 2012) Porsche has had quite the history with its GT3 model and this is the one that sent me over the edge. When I was blessed with the opportunity to take the wheel and spend a day with the now legendary 4-liter I couldn’t sleep the night before. The “997” GT3 was an amazing car in its own right and [...]

3. Ford Mustang Shelby GT350/350R (2016-2019)

3. Ford Mustang Shelby GT350/350R (2016-2019) The Mustang is one of the most popular sports cars but it has always been a bit of a portly beast to tame with a running joke of being a weekend car show curb star. The Shelby GT500 has always taken that formula and added more power which, for some drivers, meant more trouble.  But in 2012 Ford offered a variation of [...]

4. Volkswagen Golf R (2012 – 2013 – Mark VI)

4. Volkswagen Golf R (2012 - 2013 - Mark VI) The predecessor to the Mk VI Golf R was Volkswagen’s R32. It featured a 3.2-liter VR6 six-cylinder engine that put out just under 250hp. People seemed disappointed when the new Golf R came out with a turbocharged four-cylinder. But that four-banger put out more power (265hp) and, above all else, was lighter. That changed the steering and handling [...]

5. Porsche Cayman GT4 (2016)

The GT4 has been showered with accolades since its debut. With a new GT4, based off the current Porsche 718, hitting the roads, many automotive writers are dredging up their own notes on the original model to see how it compares to the new.  Porsche’s GT4 was the first time the company gave the mid-engined Cayman chassis the opportunity to dethrone the 911. Porsche has been overprotective of [...]
