Weekly Wire for August 26, 2016: Massachusetts’s Uber Tax, McLaren’s P1 LM and the Nurburgring, and the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo
Life’s been good to fast car fans and Boston taxi drivers alike lately.
This week on the Weekly Wire, Mike Spinelli, Josh Condon, and Will Sabel Courtney sit down to chat about three of the more notable things to happen in the world of The Drive this week. First, the group talks about Massachusetts's new law that will tax Uber, Lyft, and other app-based ride-hailing services for every trip users take in the state, and give a chunk of it back to the conventional taxi industry. Discussion then turns to the McLaren P1 LM's upcoming trip to the Nurburgring, and the chance that it could set a new production car lap record around the course. Finally, Spinelli discusses his recent drive of the new 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S, which, as he put it...well, you'll have to watch and see for yourself.
