  • 2018 BMW 2-Series

    The 2-Series is one of our favorite cars in the BMW lineup. In fact, the high-performance M2 variant was voted Motor Authority’s Best Car to Buy 2017. It’s mostly because the car reminds us of BMWs of old, where rear-wheel drive, inline-6s and manual transmissions ruled. Yes, the 2-Series is breath of fresh air at a time when BMW seems to be focused on filling every niche possible, even if it means launching front-wheel-drive minivans. The complete range, including the M2, has just been updated, but the changes are relatively minor as the 2-Series already received a round of...

  • 2017 BMW 6-Series
    BMW drops 6-Series coupe

    BMW has quietly dropped the coupe body style from its 6-Series range for 2018. It means there are now just the 6-Series Convertible and 6-Series Gran Coupe options. The M6 coupe has also disappeared along with the regular model. A BMW spokesperson confirmed to Road & Track that the 6-Series...

  • 2018 BMW Alpina B4 S
    2018 BMW Alpina B4 S revealed

    Alpina’s B4 has been updated along with the BMW 4-Series on which it is based. In updated the form the car is known as the B4 S, and its 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-6 now beats out an M4-rivaling 434 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque. That’s up from 410 hp and 442 lb-ft...

  • 2014 Kia Forte Koup
    Kia is killing off the Forte Koup

    The Kia Forte Koup has been sent to the automotive guillotine as consumer demand for small cars continues to dwindle in favor of larger crossovers and SUVs. It hasn't helped that the 10th-generation Honda Civic coupe has come out swinging this time around either. Kia confirmed to CarsDirect the...

  • 2017 Lotus Exige Cup 380
    2017 Lotus Exige Cup 380 is all about the aero

    We only get the Lotus Evora in the United States, at least as far as road cars are concerned. But overseas, buyers still have new versions of the lighter, more affordable Elise and Exige models they can opt for. The latest model to come out of Lotus’ headquarters in Hethel is a harder-edged...

  • 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
    How fast is the Dodge Demon on pump gas, in Eco mode?

    We all know the lofty claims. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the fastest production car in the quarter mile with a time of 9.65 seconds and in the 0-60 mph sprint at just 2.3 seconds. However, those numbers require 100+ octane racing fuel and the optional Direct Connection engine...

  • 2018 BMW M4 CS

    BMW unveiled the first of a new series of CS models last week at the 2017 Shanghai auto show. The first is the M4 CS which CarBuzz has learned will be built in a limited run of just 3,000 cars for worldwide sale. It’s not clear, still, how many will end up in the United States. The M4 CS fills the gap between the M4 equipped with the Competition Package and the hardcore, water-injected M4 GTS. Speaking with CarBuzz at the debut of the M4 CS, Peter Quintus, Vice President for Sales and Marketing at BMW M, said his team was prompted to develop the M4 CS due to the overwhelming demand for...

  • 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
    The fat Dodge Demon brakes harder than a Viper ACR

    Haters love to bash the Hellcats, and already the Demon, for only going fast in a straight line. They pounce on the fact that these Mopar muscle cars weigh over two tons. While that's true, weight is only one piece of the equation. Despite being somewhat "fat," the Demon is good at more than just...

  • 2018 BMW M4 CS
    454-horsepower BMW M4 CS debuts at 2017 Shanghai auto show

    When BMW in January announced its round of mid-cycle updates for the M4, many, including us, were disappointed to learn there were no real changes apart from some tweaks to the lights and new colors. That’s because BMW was saving the M4’s more substantial updates for a new model...

  • 2018 Jaguar F-Type 400 Sport
    2018 Jaguar F-Type preview

    Jaguar’s F-Type has undergone a mid-cycle update. The changes are subtle yet provide the stylish sports car with the latest technology, a more refined look, and a new engine option. There’s also a lower price tag! You’ll spot the updated range by the full LED headlights and new...

  • Hyundai Vision G (HCD-16) concept
    Genesis coupe to skip V-8 in favor of electrified powertrain

    One of the six cars Genesis plans to have in its lineup by the end of 2020 is a large, luxurious coupe built more for grand touring than carving up race tracks. Unfortunately, a previous plan to fit the car with a V-8 looks to have been axed with Genesis instead favoring an electrified powertrain...

  • 2017 Nissan 370Z
    The future of the 370Z isn't much of a priority for Nissan

    It seems the future of the Nissan Z may be stuck in limbo following the most recent round of updates for the 2018 model year, which also introduces a Heritage Edition. Speaking to AutoGuide at the 2017 New York auto show, Christian Meunier, senior vice president of Nissan Sales, Marketing, and...

And when asked whether the production green light was given to the car, Michel reportedly indicated yes.

    2017 Honda Civic Si and Civic Si Coupe revealed with 205 horsepower

    The Civic Type R may be the top dog in Honda’s 10th-generation Civic range, but the performance on offer from the latest Civic Si is certainly nothing to sneeze at. Honda has revealed its latest Civic Si and Civic Si Coupe at the 2017 New York auto show, and we can finally confirm some of the...

  • Dodge Demon Crate
    The Demon's Crate: What's in the box?

    Dodge finally finished with the teasers and revealed the 2018 Challenger SRT Demon to much fan fare. Now that it's out there, it's time to take a closer look at some of the options, and one of the more interesting box to tick on the order sheet is for the Demon Crate. As we saw in video teaser...

  • 2018 Audi S4/S5 First Drive
    2018 Audi S4/S5 video review: making our own music at Coachella

    We have a tough time nailing down what “performance” means anymore. Automakers work really hard telling us that every car has sporting potential—right down to a minivan. We’re easily not convinced. We know “sssspeed” when we see it, and Audi’s twins here...

  • Nissan GT-R Police Pursuit
    You can't run from the Nissan GT-R Police Pursuit

    Seeing the red and blue lights in your rearview mirror can cause a bit of mild terror. Were you speeding? Did you signal when you changed lanes? What did you do wrong? Now, if you're an actual serial bad person, maybe there's a serious reason for a cop to be on your tail. If that's the case...

  • 2017 Honda Civic Si Coupe prototype, 2016 Los Angeles auto show

    We weren’t supposed to know how much torque the 2017 Honda Civic Si will be making when it arrives later this year, but the brand accidentally revealed it early. Forum members at CivicX received a peculiar email from Honda itself stating the 2017 Civic Si would be arriving with 192 pound-feet of torque. The email was sent out to any and all members who had signed up for updates on the upcoming, 10th-generation Civic Si. While forum members mulled over the legitimacy of 192 units of twist, we reached out to Honda for comment. The brand confirmed the 2017 Honda Civic Si’s torque...

  • 2018 Lexus LC 500h fitted with TRD exterior parts
    TRD trots out upgrades for Lexus LC

    The Lexus LC is more luxury cruiser than sports car, but that hasn’t stopped TRD from developing performance upgrades for the car. TRD is one of a handful of official motorsport departments at Toyota. The others are Gazoo Racing and TMG. For the LC, TRD has rolled out several exterior mods...

    Camaro GT4.R combines SS and ZL1 1LE elements into turnkey racer

    Chevrolet's latest race car is about to hit the track. It's the Camaro GT4.R and it's a combination of a couple of our favorite Camaros, with some track prep by the Pratt & Miller race shop. The GT4.R starts out with the body from the newly announced ZL1 1LE, and all of the dive planes and big...

    Active aero, light weight make Lamborghini's Huracán Performante its baddest supercar yet

    A few days ago we learned that the forthcoming Lamborghini Huracán Performante had set a new lap record for a production car of 6:52.01 on the 12.8-mile Nürburgring Nordschleife. At the time, we knew only a few details about the car, including the fact that it has active aerodynamics...

    McLaren already showing off how to customize 720S with 'Velocity' by MSO

    So you thought the 2018 McLaren 720S was cool, huh? You think a $280,000 starting price is exclusive? Think again, because McLaren already has an MSO-prepped car on its stand in Geneva to show buyers how they can personlize the brand's new Super Series model. It's called the McLaren 720S "Velocity"...
