TOPCAR Shows Full Carbon STINGER Reskin for Porsche 911 Turbo

This custom upgraded exterior looks exceptionally high-quality in its raw form.  Yet also featherlight and dropping the OEM curb weight by around 200 pounds.  Along with the menu of power and handling mods, the Stinger GTR definitely packs a strong punch.  Like a prize fighter in carbon-kevlar, nothing it getting past these TopCar turbos!

Update1 – 2016 Acura NSX Shows Carbon Options at The Quail! But Production Delayed Until Springtime

Updated with a dozen new photos 8.16.15 Any sighting of the upcoming Acura NSX is more than welcome — especially when showcasing a bunch of sexy exterior options to make the style even more intense. But this Quail visit is a mixed blessing. Undoubtedly planned when Acura thought the car would be closer to production… the Quail showing comes as we learn that the car is delayed until Spring 2016. And that is when production is set to start. Unfortunately to report, this means cars may not be in first buyer hands until next summer. As tough as that news …

Quickest-Ever 2016 Audi S8 Plus Hits 62 in 3.8s With Vmax of 189MPH – Calls Out Haters

Audi just revealed its saloon-car flagship for 2016: the S8 Plus. Not exactly sure when it happened, but we hate the Audi A8 lately. Despite this (clearly super-influential:) opinion, the A8 is actually performing exceptionally well in the sales charts. Only the S-Class beats it for American-market full-size luxury sedan market share. As if sensing our disdain from afar, this superlimo wants to re-earn some of the cool points of the Ronin or Transporter S8 years. Then, the blacked-out S8 variant of all-aluminum flagship was a quirky but rapid AWD alternative to the big dogs from BMW and AMG. That …

A stock supercar is quickly becoming passe in many circles. To really draw admiring stares among the exotic-car cognoscenti, you need to step up to make your car one-of-a-kind.  There are many ways to approach customizing your machine — but typically, this is the road map of tuning steps we would follow: — rolling stock enhancements via wheels/tires — power tweaks via ECU reflashes or engine upgrades — exhaust harmonic changes — a dramatic exterior makeover via custom aero pieces — every angle should show unique aggression versus factory models — stance enhancements via track extension with hub spacers — …

2016 Ford Mustang GT Launching Black Pack, New Cali Special and GT Performance Pack

  If the current 2015 Mustang GT has not hooked you yet with its sublime redesign, the 2016 is likely to close the deal. The most striking exterior change are the new hood vents in the GT. These are contrast-black on the California Special, shown here as a white convertible. They are body-colored on the new Mustang GT Black Pack, which wears gloss-black alloys, badging and other trim elements. A new hood vent design pulls more hot air from under the hood and also houses LED amber blinkers. These serve as side marker repeaters and are highly visible on the …

Chevrolet Impala Midnight Edition – $1k Blackout Upgrade Arriving Summer 2015

  One for the full-size sedan fans out there!  Chevy just announced that the Impala Midnight Edition is coming to showrooms this summer virtually identical to the SEMA 2014 show car. The upgrade is a full gloss black dip for many design details, the grille and surround, tail and rear spoiler. The 19-inch wheels are polished on the edges but gloss black on the insides – best of all worlds.  Even the bow-ties front and rear go dark. Unusually, the black-out style option is not set to be offered on other colors. We think this setup would look just as …

Check out this Porsche Macan by TopCar of Russia! This full kit results in an absolutely stunning SUV stance, widebody look and supersport style.

The work is quite breathtaking in its detail and quality, with 25 of the best featured here. NY …

Just think of the Magnum Cayenne of Grand GT Panamera to know how extreme these guys can get. For many people who have never customized their exotic car – the super-extreme cars can be a turn-0ff. This is a gorgeous alternative that will still look brilliant in 2024 – and still be totally unique as well. But even with a restrained example like their work on the 991 Carrera 4 — we …

2014 Nissan 370Z Coupe – Colors, Specs, Options and Prices from $30k

Can we be real for a second here? The Nissan 370Z NISMO is an awesome sports car. But if it were my hard-earned, I would snap up the standard 370Z almost any day of the week over not just the NISMO Z-car, but also the Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and WRX, the Focus ST… almost anything. For the 330-horsepower + rear-drive value equation, only the Hyundai Genesis Coupe gets close. Yes, the Mustang and Camaro exist. But they would not be my personal choices with a V6. The BMW 228i M Sport would be the only other rear-drive coupe on …

Rare Ragtops – A Pair of Lotus Elans Graced Kiawah Island, SC Cars and Coffee Today

A few fun facts about the very-rare Lotus Elan series three, of which less than 600 total were ever imported to the United States: — it was designed by Peter Stevens, who later designed the McLaren F1 — the turbo-charged engine and super-wide layout of the chassis gave the Elan much more speed on tracks and in corners than its MX-5 contemporary But prices nearly double the MX-5 meant the Elan was doomed to a niche fate in many core markets. As much as the badge appealed, the front-drive layout was hard to admire when Mazda had just proven beyond …
