The C30 Polestar concept was everything Volvo’s little fun-hatch should have been, with all-wheel-drive and 405 horsepower. But the car buying public only ever got the front-wheel-drive C30, even when Polestar tuned it up. That is, unless you took matters into your own hands and Frankenstein’d an all-wheel-drive C30…
We know that the 2018 Mazda6 will finally come with some turbo power, but sadly the bigger motor will be only paired with an automatic transmission. However!

Joe has been hooning around in front-wheel drive cars for awhile and currently drives the excellent Fiesta ST (RIP FiST). He would like to make a change and get something that sends power to the rear wheels or all four of them. What car should he buy?
Audi launched its updated 2017 Audi S3 this week in Durham, North Carolina, claiming that the new car would be a little more playful in the corners. When pressed on whether or not the brand would ever consider a full-on “Drift Mode” for its cars, well, don’t get your hopes up.
You know what? I'm going to go ahead and make the extraordinarily generous assumption that the Audi R8 driver here in question followed our multitudinous advice to fit winter tires, since all wheel drive won't always save you in snow. But, damn.
The Jaguar F-Type is one of the most compelling sports cars to come along in years, primarily because it adheres so closely to the classic sports car formula: open top, two seats, rear-wheel drive.

What does a Subaru WRX STI have in common with the first land-walking fish? No, not a bunch of world rally championships, which would be impressive. But they are both all-wheel drive.
By all accounts, the Tesla Model S is a fantastic engineering accomplishment and also great to drive. And now Tesla is looking to expand to cooler, snowier climates with the addition of a Model S with all-wheel drive. Watch out, basically everybody.
It goes without saying that in general Toyota’s Camry is the automotive equivalent of warm milk laced with Ambien. Contrastingly, today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe All-Trac is ugly enough to keep you up at night, but is its price worth losing sleep over?
Jaguar is known as the epitome of British sporting elegance. What it isn't known for is being the epitome of all-weather performance. If you wanted to be Brittanically elegant in the wintertime, you needed a Land Rover.
While BMW's M cars and Audi's RS machines are known for precision, Mercedes' AMG cars are known for smoking their tires at every single chance they get. They are the muscle cars of the performance German sedan world.

Ho ho ho! Look what the spy-photo Santa has left under the tree! Is that the 2011 Audi RS5? I think it is! Have you been a good little Internet? Would you like to see it? I bet you would!
Grandmas always make the best cookies and give the best hugs. And as Nice Price or Crack Pipe has discovered, they also have the best AMC Eagles.
When creating the Simpson's characters, Matt Groening named Bart from an anagram of Brat- reflecting his personality. Now Nice Price or Crack Pipe has a Subaru that seems almost as crudely drawn and rowdy.
Citing abysmal take rates of less than 1.5%, Chrysler is discontinuing the all-wheel-drive versions of the Dodge Avenger, Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Caliber beginning in 2009.

We knew it was on the way, but the Cross-Wheel-Drive system which debuted on the 2008 Saab 9-3 Turbo X has been made available across the rest of the 9-3 lineup for 2009. The Haldex-sourced system provides on-demand all-wheel drive which can be shifted to the wheel with the greatest grip on the fly. XWD equipped cars…
Looks like reader James Kenney is in a prime location for catching first glimpses of new Ford products. After bringing us a look at that first picture of the 45th Anniversary Ford Mustang, the most over-the-top OMG-amazing-drop-dead-sexy Mustang variant since the one before it, he's managed to spot an actually sexy…
This week, Saab announced it would give the world of car watchers something unexpected — rear wheel drive. Well, in a sense. It's Saab's new Cross Wheel Drive system, by Sweden's Haldex, and it offers up to 100-percent rear torque transfer. Of course, the front wheels get the same consideration. It's the first US…
