Safari 911s have been the hot Porsche for a while now, with fanatics lifting their cars just to go to Cars and Coffee and congratulate themselves with an Instagram photo. That is not how Jason Lightner drives his 912 rally car.
Crammed into a red Porsche 911 Turbo S Porsche convertible, we slotted into the traffic rolling towards Times Square with an R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R pulling ahead of us. Beside it waited another R34 Skyline, a hen’s tooth V-Spec II Nür. For one moment, for that whole night, really, there was no 25-year import rule.…
Ford has spent a lot of time and money over the past few years to remind you that Ford = Le Mans. Ford GT = Le Mans. Ever heard of this thing called Le Mans? Yeah, Ford won that. Meanwhile, in the background, there’s Honda, and a short but sweet program it ran with the original NSX.
I don’t know what kind of world you live in. Probably a garbage one. But in the world that Vincent Foucart inhabits, it makes sense to make a triple-rotary swapped mid-engine Peugeot 205 for your rally car campaigns.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. We’ve got the stories you need to know. We’ve got them right here.
Mercedes is getting serious with AMG, and by “serious,” I mean “slapping its badge on anything that moves.” As such, I’m inclined to believe this report that the in-house performance arm will make a mid-engine sports car to rival the Porsche Cayman. Well, to be honest, I don’t have to have any great reason to believe…
By what grace of god this 1981 Honda Accord was left unscathed over the past 37 years I do not know, but please take in how utterly immaculate it is, up for sale now with a scant 6,000 miles on the clock.
That’s me. Do you see me? I’m the Flash Green one there. I’m the Volvo V70 R. Whooooosh. Bye there. You missed me. I was flying fast under the radar, understated speed.
Ah, the myriad joys of a vintage car: the feel of the wheel wriggling in your hands, the sound of the engine as you blip the throttle. Now Siemens is looking to remove all of that with a self-driving 1965 Ford Mustang that it plans to run up the famous Goodwood Hillclimb this year.
The wildest part is how easy he makes it all look. I could do that, you think, watching Travis Pastrana clear 16 buses, I just don’t want to.
The Bugatti Veyron is the kind of car you see driving around a city center at five miles an hour, at best, or sitting in a climate-controlled garage at worst. That’s what makes it so shocking to see one being used to all of its abilities: doing 1184 horsepower all-wheel drive donuts in the dirt.
Many people will tell you that if you live in a city you need a small, compact hatchback to get around. A “city car,” they’ll say. This is bullshit, because the actual cars that park and drive around the middle of Manhattan are Oshkosh Medium Tactical Vehicles.
What makes Formula Drift different from all of the other racing series in America is not just the variety of cars that show up—everything from V8-swapped 1990s Nissan 240SXs to a 900 horsepower twin-supercharged Ferrari—it’s that they’re all competitive.
Does your Lamborghini Miura have a wing on the roof? No. It does not. But the Lamborghini Mirua SVR does, now restored by Lamborghini Storico itself to live a full life on track in Japan, where it went from car to legend.
Welcome back to Carspotting! It’s been a while but we’re back with the worst walking tour of New York City, headed by me, a hack who is barely qualified to tell you which subway lines go uptown or downtown. It’s no longer a live series—let us know what you think about this—but we’re still out to find the best cars of…
It all seemed like a joke at first: Former Formula One driver, former NASCAR driver, former rallycross champion Scott Speed got suspended from iRacing at the start of this year for trying to intentionally wreck another player in the racing simulator. But there was more to this story, and we went to iRacing…
Were you aware that the Honda Civic Type R uses a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries TD04 turbocharger, running up 23 pounds of boost to make all of the car’s 306 horsepower? That’s great information, but it’s not even close to making the cut for the five things you really ought to know about driving this front-drive…
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories that are your air, that you need to know to live.
I hadn’t realized how dark it’d gotten until the fuse blew. The stadium lights flooding the road course at Englishtown blinked out and briefly, for the first time all day, the blare of drift cars stopped.
Take one look around the JDM import scene in America and one thing becomes immediately clear: Something is going on in the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles.
