porsche’s new charge

WHEN PORSCHE FIRST UNVEILED THE Concept for its $845,000, range-topping super-car, its level of technological complexity baffled gearheads. A hybrid drivetrain? That seemed more like a science exhibit than a workable blueprint for the future of speed. And wouldn’t the final production model be far too heavy? Four years later, the skeptics are eating their words and choking on a cloud of burning rubber: The Porsche 918 Spyder is here, and the convertible, carbon-fiber hybrid is fast. Ungodly fast. Here’s why: Way before its flat-crank, 4.6-liter V-8 gets a chance to hit its epic 9,150 rpm redline, the 918’s two independent battery-powered motors kick in. The immediate surge they provide teams up with the conventional engine, enabling it to run from 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and hit 214 mph. It’s…

a drink with... laura ramsey

PULLING UP A SEAT IN RAINES LAW ROOM, a dimly lit nouveau speakeasy in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, Laura Ramsey forgoes the extensive list of Prohibition-era cocktails for something far simpler: “Tequila on the rocks,” the actress says. Perhaps it’s because she’s leaving soon for vacation in Mexico. “Last time, I stayed in the town of Yelapa at a place called Verana,” she says between sips. “It’s just so heavenly; I felt like I was in another realm.” Before departing, she must spend a few days in New York shooting a guest spot on USA’s White Collar, a show she admits to never having seen (shhh). So for now, Casamigos tequila, a sort of prelude to paradise. Ramsey certainly knows what she wants, on the rocks or otherwise. This month…

the new suit of armor

WHILE MOST BUSINESSMEN CLOSE DEALS in conference rooms and on golf courses, Maxwell Morgan often finds himself inking contracts in such areas as Serbia and Sierra Leone. Although he’s never stared down the barrel of a gun, the Canadian financier, who frequently deals with those he cryptically refers to as “merchants in the global payment space,” sought serious personal protection. But traveling with a gun-toting bodyguard or wearing a flak jacket wouldn’t exactly inspire the same confidence in clients as his signature power suit and pocket square.Then he discovered Garrison Bespoke’s Bulletproof Suit. The natty ensemble features a jacket made with a super-strong, ultra-light lining that shields wearers from bullets and blades. Garrison Bespoke has always used a very hands-on tailoring approach. Explains David Tran, head of special projects, “It’s…

the king of cool

NEARLY 35 YEARS AFTER STEVE MCQUEEN’S death, his influence on men’s style looms larger than ever. He dressed to please only himself and never wore anything that got in the way of winning a fight, a race, or a woman. His favorite items—stylish, fitted, functional—are now icons the world over. Hey, they didn’t call him the King of Cool for nothing. Case in point: Soccer superstar David Beckham is one of the biggest followers of McQueen on the planet, and among all the brands vying for his favor, he chose Belstaff, the British maker of high-end motorcycle gear, for his most recent collaboration. Why? Because, as Beckham explained to the London Telegraph, “Steve McQueen was one of the first people to [popularize] Belstaff, and I am a huge fan of…
