What better place to drive the new 2020 Outback then the Great White North? Matt headed up to the Yukon where he drove the Outback all the way to Alaska. The Outback has a brand-new interior and a few changes to its engine lineup.

We got to drive a second Porsche this week, the new 992 Porsche 911 Carrera. It was a quick review, but long enough for Matt to come to the conclusion that this is the best 911 yet despite it also being the easiest Porsche 911 to drive yet.
