Fiat 500 Cabriolet Coach Spied With Its Top Closed

We knew there was going to be a Fiat 500 Convertible » 9/10/08 10:20am 9/10/08 10:20am, but we didn’t realize Fiat was working on one of those full-length, Citroën 2CV-esque cloth sunroof things. The ahead-of-the-curve opinion-formers over at seem to think the car will receive the clunky Cabriolet Coach designation, but we’re not sure if all those…

Delahaye USA Recreating Famous Cabriolet

Our initial reaction to the idea of recreated Delahayes was one of reservation. How does one capture lightning in a bottle twice — and over fifty years after the original company went out of business? The original coachbuilt Delahayes are some of the most beautifully crafted automobiles of all time, so setting your… » 3/27/08 10:30am 3/27/08 10:30am

Audi pulled out the huge guns to reveal a car that has as much of a chance hitting showrooms as Dennis Kucinich does defeating Ron Paul for President of the Internet. How big?

Frankfurt Auto Show: Turbo Cab, F*** Yeah!

Considering the 997 911 Turbo Cabriolet hasn't had a proper intro until this week at the Frankfurt show. The twin turbocharged 3.6 liter six-cylinder has Porsche's Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) that reduces turbo lag while providing requisite pull at higher revs. The powerplant already generates 480 hp and 457 lb-ft… » 9/12/07 1:00pm 9/12/07 1:00pm

Porsche Releases New 911 Turbo Drop-Top

The 911 was first given the 997 series designation with the 2004 2004 release of the 2005 model year redesign, and as expected, the new-for-2008 model of the Porshe's iconic convertible won't be the start of a new designation, nor will it receive much in the way of new styling for the upcoming year when it hits "the… » 5/07/07 9:45am 5/07/07 9:45am

Geneva Premiere: Audi Lets Fly the RS4 Cabriolet

Audi made good with its promise to extend its RS4 performance line into the heretofore untapped high-performance droptop market. Purists will lament the lack of a roof to keep the 420-hp V8 from twisting the frame into an Aunte Anne's pretzel, but the company says some particular beefing up has taken place within to… » 2/28/06 11:55am 2/28/06 11:55am
