Charleston Cars and Coffee Mini Gallery – 2011 TESLA Roadster

Tesla roadster gif

It is really, really easy to hate Tesla Motors. As a VC-backed startup that has made a successful ‘exit’ into the stock market, they are a hero to many in the Silicon Valley area. They also have a tangible, physical product sold in an established and very competitive industry. But even so, Tesla is immensely irritating to observe. The owner of this Roadster was definitely smelling her own smug farts early and often. Luckily, Tesla’s cars are actually pretty good. Only a handful of photos of this lovely 2011 Tesla Roadster, but it is definitely still a rare machine. And not exactly affordable, even on the used market. Ballpark $50,000-plus for one just like this. 2011 TESLA Roadster You May Also Like:Charleston Cars & Coffee Mini Gallery – 1994 Mazda RX-7 Widebody The Mazda RX-7 is still a magnificent-looking machine, especially with the custom front and rear fenders on this …

Charleston Cars and Coffee – 1955 Porsche 356 1500S Speedster

356 Speedster GIF1

The thing that really strikes you when seeing the 1955 Porsche Speedster up close is its absolutely tiny scale. It is dwarfed by the Cayman sitting next to it, as well as any modern-sized human. This ultra-small and ultra-smooth style earned Porsche quite the following among those who rejected the two-ton ideal of American cars of the era. In fact, the light and lean mantra became a turning point in defining all sportscars in the post-war era. The aesthetic of hyper-curved panels is not just for beauty or aero sleekness, either. Such huge and deeply-stamped bodywork gave the 356 extra rigidity and allowed the use of extremely thin metal in the bodywork. Adding lightness, indeed! The windshield graphic and sunken cab is seen in the Porsche Speedster of 1989 and 1994 as well.   1955 Porsche 356 1500S Speedster Official Details from Porsche 1955 Porsche 356, Coupé, Cabrio, Speedster In …

205HP 2014 Honda Civic Si Sedan Is FU-Cool from $23k + Visual Buyers Guide

Civic Si GIF

Ever since the 2002 Subaru WRX and the Lancer Evolution arrived in the US – the Honda Civic has always taken a firm third place in the cool compact ranks. Honda is serious about winning car guys back. The 2014 Honda Civic Si is packing a huge wing, turbo-style polished allous with gloss black accents, and a wing to make the WRX blush. This is a car that is seriously cool. Curb appeal of the 2014 Civic Si now trumps the latest WRX and is up to WRX STI levels of aggression. The powertrain of the Si is still optimized for Honda-style high revs versus hoon-farm torque, but little by little, the 2014 Civic Si shows how Honda is regaining its bad-ass street cred.

Porsche Rally Stars – 2007 Cayenne S Transsyberia and 1978 911 SC Safari

Porsche Rally stars gif

Porsche has always loved rallying in a way that sets them apart from Ferrari and other exotic sportscar makers. Something about the engineering challenges beforehand, the technical expertise needed out in Oman or Siberia, plus the driver skill required to win — are all just very alluring to the Stuttgart legend. Two manifestations of this hidden rally passion are the 2007 Cayenne S Transsyberia and the 1978 911 SC Safari. Amazing cars, both. We at Car-Revs-Daily.com would love to see a Cayman Safari or perhaps a full Macan Turbo decked out in Martini colors….

Novitec Toroado Aventador1 GIF

Despite the brazen execution of many hypercar customs, creating a package for such intense machines must be an intimidating task for many tuners.

BMW usa 5 series visualizer animation 5a

Updated 7.29.14 with 188 new images Update info: BMW GLOBAL The BMW 5 series is incredibly trim-sensitive. It can obviously look amazing in full M5 track apparel, but looks very lonesome and humdrum in the low-range 528i and even 535i without the M Sport package. As a strong indication that this four-year-old model range is on the way out next year — there are hardly any new BMW press photos of the car since 2011. So we turned to the BMW.com global site configurators to try and make an amazing-looking 535i or, even better, a 550i. Even *more* recent update! BMW USA Just spent 25 minutes in the BMWusa.com configurator, and am as confused as ever. Despite being the best-in-the-business for pre-order visuals, the BMW 5 series configurator is seriously lacking in cool style options. Only one wheel upgrade is available, and cannot be shown in M Sport trim. The …
