  • 2019 Aston Martin Vantage, 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show

    Power, beauty, soul. Aston Martin owners have seen that phrase pop up in gauge clusters for years. The 2019 Vantage might be the best expression of that mantra. Let’s just get this out of the way—the 2019 Vantage is beautiful. The huge grille presents a menacing face. The side grilles are aggressive and much more attractive than the DB11’s. But the kammback tail is the best angle, integrating a duck-bill spoiler and a vehicle-spanning taillight sliver.

  • Motor Authority Best Car To Buy 2018
    2018 Lexus LC 500 video road test

    Concept cars can be beautiful, but they’re ideas. They’re not always made to be real cars. Sometimes an automaker takes a chance and builds that concept. This time, it’s Lexus, and the result is this beauty. Want to find out if this 2018 Lexus LC 500 drives as great as it looks?...

  • 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS
    2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS first drive review: fierce and focused

    ALGARVE, PORTUGAL – The most fearsome, trackworthy Porsche is no longer the naturally aspirated GT3. If Nürburgring Nordschleife lap times mean anything to you, the wondrously capable 918 Spyder has also been eclipsed. The latest King of the ‘Ring and sharpest weapon in the Porsche...

  • Infiniti Q60 Red Alpha concept, 2017 SEMA show

  • 2018 Aston Martin DB11 V8
    2018 Aston Martin DB11 V8 first drive review: with a little help from friends

    Aston Martins are known for two signature traits: drop-dead gorgeous looks and bad-ass soundtracks. But how do you maintain the band’s identity when you have to play a cover tune? If he were still alive, I’d tell you to ask Joe Cocker. Sometimes you get by with a little help from your...

  • 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Carbon 65 Edition

    Corvette fans have a lot to look forward to in the coming months and years, with our sleuth spy photographers in the recent past capturing both a Corvette ZR1 and a long-awaited mid-engine Corvette out testing. Chevrolet understandably is tight with details on the new cars as the current C7 Corvette has only been on the market for four years. And it’s still available for the 2018 model year which according to reports might be a short one for the Corvette. Production of the 2019 Corvette, which may or may not be the mid-engine model, is alleged to be starting as early as next January. So...

  • Polestar 1

  • Polestar 1
    Polestar 1 is a carbon fiber-bodied 600-horsepower hybrid coupe

  • 2017 Honda Civic Si First Drive

    The latest Honda Civic is also the best Honda Civic. That's an easy statement to make, but it's not quite as simple when you add the “Si” designation on the end. Because despite a raft of bad Civics for the current model to overshadow, the reality is that the Si range has been a much more consistent entry, offering fantastic driving dynamics in an affordable, reliable package. The 2017 Honda Civic Si ticks those boxes easily. And considering how disappointing the last-generation Si was, the 2018 automatically feels like a standout. But compared to great Si models, like the...

    Jay Leno samples a sublime 1951 Ford Coupe

    A 1951 Ford is a relatively plain car.

  • Bentley Mulsanne coupe by Mcchip-DKR
    German firm building the Bentley Mulsanne coupe of your dreams

  • 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S
    2017 Lamborghini Aventador S: the right car for a racetrack

    A little evolution now and then is a good thing. That distorted maxim holds true for the Lamborghini Aventador.

  • Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R

    Chevrolet Racing's turnkey race car has a price: The Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R will cost $259,000 when it goes on sale. The racing Camaro takes the best of roadgoing Camaros—the Camaro ZL1 1LE, notably—and combines it with some magic from Pratt & Miller Engineering, Chevrolet Racing's technical partner. Pratt & Miller will also handle the sale of the race car to buyers. Under the hood sits a familiar 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 engine, but the GT4.R benefits from dry-sump lubrication, a carbon-fiber intake, custom camshaft, Motec data acquisition system, and a customized Bosch...
