You know that moment when you find yourself in an iffy situation, but hadn’t considered the implications until it is too late? That’s usually the moment when the best stories begin. Contributor Jason H. Harper has made a career out of them. Like the time he belted into an original Lancia 037 Group B rally car on a cliffside race in Italy — with a navigator who didn’t speak English. After all, there’s nothing better than being a little over your head in an expensive, high-powered — and borrowed — vehicle. Fast and fun cars have taken him around the globe, writing for various publications like Bloomberg Pursuits, Men’s Journal and Playboy, and appearing on TV for The Travel Channel. A New Mexican native, Harper’s lived in Manhattan for 20 years, and firmly believes that some of the best drivers in the world live in New York City. After all, it’s a fast-moving place where silly things like blinkers and lanes can be ignored. Harper’s dream drive is a McLaren F1, so please let him know if you have one available to borrow. He’ll be careful with it. Promise.

2010 Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia - Mongol Horde

A rally-racing Cayenne? Porsche factory driver Carles Celma is making a convincing argument for it, a twenty-foot rooster tail of shredded earth spewing from the rear tires as he power-slides down a straightaway.
