This week on Weekly Wire, The Drive's Mike Spinelli, Will Sabel Courtney, and Eric Goeres sit down to discuss a pair of topics close to the hearts of everyone at the site: sports cars and drones. Among the news the panel touches on: Google and Chipotle are joining forces to deliver burritos by drone to students and employees at Virginia Tech; two separate companies are now making new tires for the 1990s-era Jaguar XJ220 supercar; and what it's like to drive a classic Porsche 911 that's been customized by the master craftspeople at Singer Vehicle Design. And of course, there's the usual mix of inane jokes, offbeat cultural references, and in-depth conversation about classic rock. But to paraphrase LeVar Burton, you don't have to take our word for it.
