Here's What It's Like To Drive a 430-hp Subaru BRZ

We love the Scion FRS and Subaru BRZ. They are affordable, practical, and you can drive them at 10/10ths basically all the time. But what happens to a BRZ when you add enough boost to more than double the horsepower and more than triple the torque output? We grabbed the keys to Crawford Performance's BRZ and found out. … » 5/13/13 3:59pm 5/13/13 3:59pm

World Challenge Is The Best Sports Car Racing You've Never Heard Of

Let's get this out of the way first. This is simply the most Jalop series in racing today. Perhaps nothing more needs to be said than that the two front-running teams are the Cadillac CTS-Vs and the K-Pax Volvo S60s. If that doesn't float your boat it's almost guaranteed your favorite manufacturer is represented. » 4/18/13 10:09am 4/18/13 10:09am

This is the man behind Ken Block's Blockhead logo: Huck Gee

Almost every racing fan and avid Jalopnik reader under the age of 37 knows who Ken Block is. Oh... you mean Ken Block the DC Shoe brand creator, GoPro slinger, Tire Slaying Hoonigan, and Gymkhana master? Yeah, I've heard of him. But do you know the man behind one of motorsport's most recognizable logos? He's just a… » 4/17/13 11:19am 4/17/13 11:19am

'Super 86' Is A Wonderfully Monsterized Scion FR-S

I think pretty much everyone agrees the BRZ/FR-S/Toyota 86 triumvirate is a good time on four wheels, and we're just at the cusp of what will likely be a vast ocean of race-bred variations. It looks like the Monsterization machines over in Fukishima Prefecture have been working overtime, and the result is the Super 86. … » 3/11/13 3:32pm 3/11/13 3:32pm

First Turbocharged Subaru BRZ Boosted To 278 Horsepower

Does The Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S Need A Turbo?

Two of the most acclaimed cars of the past year have to be the Toyota/Subaru twins, the BRZ and the FR-S. While they aren't the fastest or most luxurious cars on the road, they have a fantastic chassis, great gearbox, and some sublime handling that you can drift at the flick of a wrist. » 7/20/12 12:20pm 7/20/12 12:20pm

Subaru BRZ Vs. Toyota GT 86 Vs. Mazda Miata: Track Battle

Enthusiasts now have three (err... two, because one of them is pretty much the exact same as the other) inexpensive RWD handling-focused cars to race. Rather than enjoy this sudden bounty, many have taken to forums to explain why their particular choice is superior (don't even think of uttering the word "Scion" on a… » 4/30/12 12:00pm 4/30/12 12:00pm

Scion FR-S: First Drive

If Scion sold cars like drug dealers sold drugs, they'd be giving away little bits of the FR-S in baggies to everyone they see. They'd have local news channels running panic stories on the "Scion FR-S problem." Keith Richards would be trying to snort one off Anita Pallenberg's naked behind. Yes, it's just that easy to… » 4/25/12 12:00am 4/25/12 12:00am
