  • Porsche GT3 RS 4.0 configurator live

    It's time to start making those wishlists a bit more specific, folks: the latest pair of Porsches now have official online configurators. We spent a few minutes mostly taking things off the GT3 RS 4.0 (air conditioning, stereo, creature comforts) and ended up with a $202,000 price tag and one hellacious track machine (pictured above). What would you come up with? Or would you choose to build the Panamera Hybrid? [Build Your Porsche]

    2012 Chevrolet Corvette Gets Performance, Comfort Upgrades

    Going truly fast in an American sports car means one thing these days: the Corvette. There are muscle cars that aspire to its speed, and a few that come close, but none are the Corvette's equal. That gap is set to widen just a bit for 2012 with a new set of upgrades. The improvements focus on...

  • Ferrari 458 Italia steering wheel

    With the introduction of its 458 Italia supercar, Ferrari made a significant design change where most of the driver’s controls were clustered on or around the steering wheel. This is akin to Formula 1, where a myriad of controls located on the steering wheel control nearly all of the functions of the car. In the real world, and to the average driver, this close proximity of controls and buttons with more than one function can prove difficult to use without practice, especially when driving at speed. Functions found on the steering wheel of the 458 Italia that normally would be placed...

    Dodge Looking To Expand Customer Base With Next Viper

  • 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster spy shots

    The 2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is proving to be one of the more exciting offerings of the next couple of years, and as the spiritual successor to the renowned Gullwing 300SL of the 1950s it makes sense for the car to be offered in a roofless variant as well. There’s no official word yet from the automaker but it’s expected that a SLS AMG Roadster should surface in the second half of the year as a 2012 model, although a debut at September's 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show is expected. This would put it on a timeline to debut around a year after its tin-top brother first when on sale--a...

    Audi Working On Halo Q7, R8 Models For Russia, Middle East

    If a $285,000 Audi Q7 V-12 TDI doesn't quite make sense to you, you're not a Russian billionaire. Or at least that's the math when it comes to Audi's latest idea for exploiting the questionable tastes of the rich. Russia isn't the only market being targeted with the halo car concept. If you're in...
