The late 1970s heralded a golden period for Ferrari design. Sure, the Ferrari 308 will forever go down as the Poor Man's Ferrari, due to a whole host of issues, but there's no denying how good it looks.
Ferrari has a long and storied history of making custom, one-off, coachbuilt cars for various customers. Some of them are completely original works of art in their own right with numerous changes to the bodywork, while others feature more subtle modifications.
Bran Ferrern overdid it with the ultra-equipped Unimog expedition rig he dubbed "MaxiMog" back in 2005. Now he's taken the idea of an overlander to a whole new level and basically built a spaceworthy liveaboard vehicle I couldn't even conceive of having the budget to execute.
Anybody can build a sports car, a utility van, or any other kind of specialized vehicle. But what about a car that can do it all?
You throw the 2015 Subaru WRX STI into a corner. In days of yore, the front end wouldn't bite and you'd start to wash wide. Subaru had developed the recipe for understeer. But this new STI... It bites. It turns in. This is a Porsche 911 fighter for a third of the price. Oh, and one of the best new cars you can buy…
Welcome to Must Read, where we single out the best stories from around the automotive universe and beyond. Today we have reports from Forbes, The Daily Beast and Quartz.
I recently had the chance to drive a 577-horsepower station wagon. I think you would agree that chances like these aren't to be turned away. Instead, you accept them head-on, with full force, assuming that someone else is paying for gas.
Porsche already confirmed that they're going to be dropping a flat-four cylinder engine into the 2015 Porsche Boxster and the Cayman, but we haven't heard a peep out of the motor itself. But this really truly maybe definitely possibly could be might be the sound of Porsche's future on the Nurburgring.
While gracing their newest car with the front of a P1 and the back of an 12C might feel like a lazy move, the McLaren 650S Coupe and Spider will hit the road with 641 horsepower, giving it a top speed of 207 mph and a 0-60 time under 3 seconds.
The first thing you learn is that it doesn't usually rain in Spain, but when it does, it's the sort of rain that requires you to be more Captain Nemo than Ayrton Senna. And that's when you figure out how a McLaren 650S is as a submarine, not a car.
"It's a video game." "It's boring." "It does everything for you." "I don't like it." This is what people who have never driven a Nissan GT-R say. They should drive one. They're wrong.
Nissan GT-R tuner Switzer Performance of Oberlin, Ohio released this jacked-up GT-R cartoon yesterday. Their receptionist laughed at me when I called asking about it, but the guy who made the illustration is maintaining that the shop is "figuring out how to do it."
I won't hold my breath on "Motor City Masters" being a success, but at least now we know some more details about the car-designer reality show from the trailer that's been recently uploaded.
This might be the most emotional show to ever air on television. "Motor City Masters," a competition among 10 car designers to, well, design cars, is in production right now and will debut on truTV this summer.
I have a simple question: does speeding really get you to your destination any faster? I tend to be a more conservative driver and it drives my boyfriend crazy (who always goes 10mph over the speed limit. I'm pretty sure that between red lights and traffic, there's not enough time saved for it to even…
That headline makes a bold statement, but I think I can stand by it. Icon is building (or, really, re-building) the world's best SUVs. They're expensive as hell, sure, and they're not the most luxurious or advanced or anything like that. They're simply made better than almost anything I've ever seen.
The term "economic uncertainty" seems to be forgotten at BMW these days, since not only is it expanding into small, FWD offerings, it's also planning for very big, very luxurious and very expensive cars like the X7. Now you might be able to add a BMW 9-Series to that list.
Sometimes, lawmakers act like they've never seen a car. These ten are their worst bills, with some changing the car industry forever.
When I was thinking of the dumbest things on cars mandated by governments, I went straight for bad headlights and stupid automatic seatbelts. And I totally forgot about another silly and short-lived U.S. requirement: the 85 mph speedometer.
