Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport Rallye

Porsche Motorsport is showing off a rally-equipped concept version of its Cayman GT4 Clubsport racer. The 385hp racer has a sweet quad LED light pack on the hood, a ventilation scoop over the cabin, and a roll cage inside. We’d love to see Porsche in rally racing again.

Rally Car vs Dog Close Call

Rally Car vs Dog Close Call

It’s every rally driver’s worst nightmare – an animal runs into the middle of the course. Most of the time it results in a nasty collision or the car running off the road to avoid it. Not so for this scrappy pup, and equally lucky rally drivers, who must have someone looking out for them.

AWD vs. FWD vs. RWD

AWD vs. FWD vs. RWD

Jalopnik takes a look at three classic rally cars to illustrate the differences between automotive drivetrains, and how rally racing serves as a proving ground for tech in production vehicles. We don’t care if it’s only front-wheel drive – we want that SAAB 96.

The Rally RAV4

The Rally RAV4

Pro rally driver Ryan Millen proves that the Toyota RAV4 is way more capable than its grocery getter image. We watched him drive his largely stock RAV4 to 1st place in his class and 3rd place overall in the 2015 Mt. Hood Rally. Read more about our adventure on 95octane.

2016 Ford Focus RS

2016 Ford Focus RS

New for 2016, this monster hot hatch features a 2.3L EcoBoost engine that can produce more than 320hp, an all-wheel drivetrain and torque vectoring system that should make hooning about like Ken Block easier than ever.

During a recent rally run at the 2014 Rally Ourense in Spain, driver Oscar Barroso took a corner with amazing style, pulling two wheels off the ground as he came around the bend in his Suzuki Swift. Another view here.

A Proper Rally Co-Driver

A Proper Rally Co-Driver

Rally co-drivers have a hard enough job keeping their drivers on the road, so we have to hand it to Mark Allaeys for going beyond the call in 1991 when he had to manually control the broken throttle on driver Dominique de Muynck’s Alfa.

Rally Car vs. House

Rally Car vs. House

Driver Michael Louli and co-pilot Jim Adams take a bad turn during a race, finding themselves unexpectedly embedded in a house. Thanks to their safety gear, they’re shockingly unfazed by the incident. But what about the homeowner?

Remember those driving dogs from New Zealand? Apparently they’re really quick learners, if this silly video mashup of that footage with Ken Block’s Gymkhana were to be believed.

Gymkhana Four: Bonus Edit

Gymkhana Four: Bonus Edit

Last year, we shared Ken Block’s Gymkhana Four: Hollywood video. The guys behind the clip have released a new “raw” edit, focused on Block’s skills and less on Hollywood flash. We prefer this cut.

Today’s rally racing is exciting, but the crazy 600hp Group B rallies of the 1980s were just pure dirt, guts, adrenaline, and the occasional fireball. Watch some of the great races in their slow-mo glory.
