  • Porsche 911 Speedster

    There are few better things in this world than hitting an open stretch of highway in a high-performance convertible, with the top-down, the sound of the engine roaring in your ears and the wind in your hair (if you happen to have any left). However, a new study from St. Louis University School of Medicine and the Ear Institute of Texas has found that the turbulence battering your ears all day, plus any road noise, could actually lead to serious hearing loss. The catch is that it only becomes unsafe if you drive at speeds of 55 mph and up. Researchers used five different makes and models of...

  • 2008 Pontiac Solstice Roadster
    Last Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky roll off the line

    General Motors’ announcement back in April that the Pontiac brand would be phased out by the end of the year and Saturn sold off, many of the automaker’s top models were immediately given a death sentence. Some of the cars that will be missed the most include hot items like the Saturn...

    GM says Camaro is 'core model', Solstice, Sky may live on

    Though bankruptcy is looking more and more like the way General Motors will go, the company is fighting to preserve its most adored models - one way or another.

    GM releases LNF Turbo Upgrade Kit for Solstice, Sky, HHR

    The 2.0L turbo engine internally known as the LNF has been one of GM's unsung heroes over the past several years. Lying at the heart of the Pontiac Solstice GXP, Saturn Sky Redline and HHR SS, the engine generates a very respectable 260hp and 260lb-ft of torque in factory trim. But GM's performance...

    Breckland updates Beira V8-powered Kappa roadster

    General Motors' Kappa platform has been widely praised for its performance characteristics (if also found somewhat lacking in ergonomics), so its choice as the basis of a custom V8-swap is in many ways unsurprising. It is, however, sure to be inspiring with a 400hp Corvette engine under the hood of...

  • Tight budgets slow Saturn refresh

    General Motors' Saturn brand currently boasts one of the youngest overall lineups in the industry - its oldest model is the Saturn Sky (pictured), which debuted in 2006 as a 2007 model. Tough economic times at GM may mean that the current crop of mostly new models will have to stay largely unchanged for longer than previous generations. While existing models like the Astra (see our review here), Aura and Sky aren't scheduled for updates until 2011 at the earliest, with full redesigns pushed out to 2012 for the Aura and 2014 for the Sky - provided it's still in the lineup then - a new car is...

    GM’s Kappa Gives Birth To The Saturn Sky And Opel GT

    Platform sharing seems to be the route most car manufacturers are taking in these days of parts rationalization and cost cutting. Just as General Motors Company's [NYSE:GM] Zeta platform will give birth to the new Camaro and GTO (here’s hoping), the American auto giant's smaller rear-drive...
