Auto-Showdown: Audi R8 V10 RWS vs. Porsche 911 GT3 Touring

  Auto-Showdown: Audi R8 V10 RWS vs. Porsche 911 GT3 Touring A closer look at the two enthusiast specials from FrankfurtNo one is ever going to mistake an Audi R8 or a Porsche 911 for a Toyota Prius. They're clearly high-performance coupes no matter how you order them. But even with a 540-hp V-10 tucked right behind the driver's seat, it's impressive how little Audi did to differentiate the RWS from the regular version.To most people on the street, the R8 for hardcore driving enthusiasts could easily be mistaken for any other R8. You don't even have to order the red stripe if you don't want it.

It’s easy to get lost in the multitude of options available from each manufacturer. It’s even tougher to evaluate the cost-per-dollar ratio of each of the specific models and their respective packages.

  2018 Yamaha Star Eluder Bagger First Look Review <p>Say hello to the Yamaha Star Venture’s cooler sibling</p>When we rode Yamaha’s newest luxury tourer the Star Venture in July, we came away impressed with its expansive amenities list, surprising handling capabilities, and voluminous cargo capacity. However, it seemed like such a waste of a pretty face and a grunty motor to saddle it with all that stuff. Dressers are nice, but baggers are the compromise between convenience and cool.

In light of Honda’s new 2018 Gold Wing release, we thought it would be beneficial to take a closer look at the grandest of the grand—the cream of the crop—in all their five-figure glory. For the sake of simplicity, we’ve broken this chart into three separate categories: brand, model, and price.

While it’s easy enough to compare these models on paper, personal preference will always be more subjective. As Social Media Specialist Brian Hatano stated in his Yamaha Star Venture review, “The flip side to the touring/cruiser paradox has nothing to do with practical amenities, power, or price. It’s more about heritage and emotional attraction to the machine. Whether [a specific model] checks those boxes, of course, depends on the individual.”

We want your opinions. What do you look for first and foremost in a touring motorcycle? Are comfort and storage worth more to you than engine performance and mileage? Do you favor one brand over others? How do you tour?

2018 Lincoln Navigator vs luxury SUV rivals: How it compares on paper .
There's an awful lot highlighted in the Navigator columnThe all-new 2018 Lincoln Navigator is an impressive, luxury-lined beast. However, while its Black Label interior stood out most during our first drive of the new Navigator, it also seemed pretty clear that much of this full-size SUV was superior to the competition in a number of fundamental ways. Its Raptor-sourced 3.5-liter V6 had class-leading power for one, and its third-row seat seemed as spacious and comfortable as its rivals' are cramped and barely usable.
