2014 Porsche 911 GT3 - Classic Car Club Review

The Porsche GT3 has long been regarded as a driver's car. While the results are always staggering, the recipe for GT3 pie is very simple – take a normal 911, ratchet up the cc's and revs, strip out the weight while exaggerating the width and wheelbase, give it cup-car stiff suspension, strap on a huge wing and use… » 10/09/14 1:21pm 10/09/14 1:21pm

The Audi RS5 Cabriolet is The Battleship That Screams

The Audi RS5 Cabriolet is a big, heavy car. In fact, at 4,420 lbs, the RS5 is 60 lbs heavier than my Honda Odyssey Minivan, which combined with this particular shade of "Nardo Gray," has led me to lovingly refer to the car as "The Battleship." Thing is with 450 hp and a redline half-past-eight, this battleship hauls… » 10/07/14 10:06am 10/07/14 10:06am

My Day on a Gas-Powered Drift Trike: Like Being a Kid Again, But Better

No grown-up vehicle can match the thrill you felt as a kid on your Big Wheel. Cars and motorcycles are fun, but at day's end they're serious machines. Recapturing that unbridled euphoria requires a dedicated device. And the SFD Industries Drift Trike is the three-wheeled, gas-powered tool for the job. » 10/02/14 3:16pm 10/02/14 3:16pm

How Does a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Handle a Hot Track Day?

I recently had the pleasure of spending two weeks and 4,000 miles on Rally North America in one of the greatest vehicles to ever come out of the US of A: the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. It's comfortable, fast, and full of practicality. But how does it handle a road course, at 4,500 feet of elevation, when it's 95… » 9/05/14 12:31pm 9/05/14 12:31pm

2011 Z4 sDrive30i M Sport: The Oppositelock Review

The N52-powered E89 with the M Sport package and manual transmission is an interesting combination of new and old in a rather often overlooked roadster: the second generation of BMW's sports car. It has electric steering, an electric parking brake, a ridiculous name, and drive-by-wire. It's also RWD, has defeatable… » 8/30/14 12:29pm 8/30/14 12:29pm

The Worst Car I've Ever Driven: Maserati Ghibli V6 S

The Maserati Ghibli is Maserati's answer to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E Class, BMW 5-Series, Audi A6 and the Jaguar XF. Maserati's goal with the Ghibli is for it to be the firm's best seller in order to have made 50,000 sales by 2015. Considering Maserati's 100 year heritage, the Ghibli should be solar systems… » 7/27/14 8:54am 7/27/14 8:54am

Video: The 610HP, Twin-Turbo, Flamespitting Ferrari 348 Challenge

A traditional Ferrari Collector would probably want to leave his 1-of-32 348 Challenge factory race car stock, or maybe just slightly upgraded with a few modern safety and performance parts for occasional track use. Not Steve Maxwell and Stacey Slead. They stuffed Stacey's car so full of boost, brake, and grip that … » 6/10/14 2:54pm 6/10/14 2:54pm

My 1984 Mercedes Benz 300TD, reviewed

The discerning buyer who needs to fit many dogs in the back and four people up front in the lap of, mid-range, luxury. That is who buys a Mercedes 300 wagon. Fitted with a turbo and adorned with the finest vinyl to keep the backs of the occupants firmly adhered to the MB-Tex as to avoid falling out of the seat.… » 5/31/14 8:53am 5/31/14 8:53am
