2014 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is Track Star With A Trailer Tow Bar!

SuperTruck? Muscle Truck? SuperSUV? What is the best descriptor for ultra-high-performance crossovers? Still being determined, it seems. But when you see this Cayenne Turbo parked outside the Atlanta Motorsports Park private garages, next to a GT-R and while the guys inside work on their Radical SR3 SL and a few formula racers… you get it. Best of the best only. Porsche GT3 office chairs….!? Yes.   The Cayenne Turbo is unlike 99-percent of other SUVs. It will keep up with a GT-R on the track, and make the driver of a base Carrera 911 very nervous about his times. It …

Supercar Hall of Fame – 2011 Nissan GT-R in Super Silver Special Metallic

In terms of #ZeroCompetition – The GT-R’s performance really does stack up amazingly well versus almost any other hypercar. This is as true for the revised 2014 models as it is for any R35 generation GT-R – like the ~2011 model shown below. Super Silver Special Metallic might be a hard $3000 option to justify when ordering the GT-R, but the effect in real life is absolutely brilliant. Nothing short of a pure million-dollar concept has the same depth and reflectivity of this gorgeous color on the GT-R. Please enjoy these 60 all-new photos from Atlanta Motorsports Park.   2011 …

2014 Buick Regal Turbo and GS AWD – Inside and Out in 50 High-Res Photos

We still have yet to drive the Buick Regal, but the car is very handsome for 2014 in both the base eAssist or Turbo trims — and definitely int he sexy GS package. The GS is the OPC/VXR version from across the pond – with everything the European cars have to increase the sportiness of the handling, performance and cabin feel. Our GS trades the twin-turbo V6 of the Euro cars for a turbo four – which is the biggest change overall besides the new Buick badges everywhere. The lighter engine up front actually dramatically enhances road feel and how …

ASTON MARTIN Lagonda Officially Reborn For Bespoke 2015 Super Saloon

Lagonda lives! Breaking news with a confirmation from Aston-Martin on the 2015 Bespoke Super Saloon project – which is officially the new Lagonda saloon car. Inspiration for the design is said to tie directly to the 1976 Lagonda saloon below in original and VirtualModels.org’s dragster prototype. Most likely reference points in the bespoke 2015 Lagonda are the D-pillar shape and glasshouse, which is more faithful a revamp than the current Rapide S. A chopped and simplified vertical grille and nose bring the light elements low and part of the front face, versus on the uppermost corner edges. The 2015 Lagonda …

Buick OnStar 4GLTE As Standard Is A Game-Changer for In-Car Mobile Broadband

Spent some time today with the latest Regal and Lacrosse sedans from Buick – a surprising leader in the tech segment of the car business. Standard 4G LTE in all 2015 Buicks (except the Enclave, which makes it for 2016) will make the first three months of owning car car true heaven. That is the length of the trial period of in-car 4GLTE services with Onstar. I say this with a bit of a smirk because the sign-up rate will be amazingly high. The pricing, already-installed access and friendliness of the sign-in for up to seven devices is a miracle …

4.1s 2015 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Leads Refreshed Lineup in USA from November

Porsche revealed the updated 2015 Cayenne model line today – with a variety of style in and tech to go along with the new Cayenne S twin-turbo V6 replacing the current 4.8-liter V8. This new 3.6-liter engine drops the sprint pace of the Cayenne S half a second down to 5.1-seconds gor the Sport Chrono pack, 5.2-seconds for the standard S.  The V6 produces 420-horsepower and 406-pound-feet of torque in the big Cayenne, which is up 20 from this engine in the Macan S. Power is through a new eight-speed transmission across the board. The latest Cayenne S E-Hybrid has …

2015 Toyota Yaris Adds LED Style and Standard Touchscreen Audio!

Big news for these small-car twins! By the looks and extra content of the 2015 three and five-door Yaris line, Toyota must not be pleased to lose an inch of its compact car dominance to upstarts Chevrolet and Hyundai-Kia! Toyota has owned the small car sales charts for two decades with its Corolla and various other models, but the littlest member of the family has sat out many rounds of updates by competing brands. Chevrolet’s Cruze, Sonic and Spark lines are making waves in the segment, while the Mitsubishi Mirage and Nissan Versa are also play hardball on price. So …

Exclusive Renderings! 2017 LOTUS Evora Clubman, Sedan and Shooting Brake

Here is a fun little set of renderings! What initially started as an idea for a new Elite ‘breadvan’ bloomed into two other variants as well: the long-wheelbase sedan and four-door Clubman! But wait, I hear you saying – isn’t this a mid-engine car? Yes, yes it is. But the Evora is also a 2+2, with the engine itself quite compact and only extending about 8 inches ahead of the rear axle centerline. This makes plenty of room for an extra set of doors and bigger seats. The idea with the extra doors is not for limo-like room in the …
