Ferrari 488 GTO would be fastest V8 car ever from Maranello

It should surprise absolutely no one to learn that Ferrari may be cooking up an even hotter variant of the 488 GTB. If a report from Autocar is true, the new car will resurrect the hallowed GTO moniker and pack more than 700 horsepower from its twin-turbocharged mid-mounted V8. It would be the successor to the wild and wonderful Ferrari 458 Speciale, the swan song for the naturally aspirated V8 in Maranello. This will be the fourth time Ferrari has used the name GTO. The first was in the 1960s…
This is the follow-up to the Ferrari 458 Speciale.

Tesla's Klaus Grohmann fired after clashing with CEO Elon Musk

Tesla executive Klaus Grohmann was ousted last month after a clash with Chief Executive Elon Musk over the strategy of Grohmann's firm, which Tesla had acquired in November, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters. The Silicon Valley luxury electric carmaker is counting on Grohmann Engineering's automation and engineering expertise to help it ramp up production to 500,000 cars per year by 2018. At the time of the purchase, it described Klaus Grohmann and the company he founded as a…
According to unnamed sources, a disagreement with Musk over how to treat existing clients resulted in Grohmann's departure.

Watch wrong-way driver earn instant karma for trying to dodge traffic

So, it's probably safe to say that most drivers love to see other drivers punished for bad driving. Whether it's someone getting instant karma for cutting in line or some vigilante justice meted out to a cabbie for cutting off an ambulance, I think we all enjoy a little vehicular Schadenfreude now and then. The latest extremely satisfying video of dumb drivers getting their comeuppance comes to us from the Atlanta metro area. YouTube user "tehndn" uploaded a bit of dashcam footage of an…
This is incredibly satisfying.

This 1-of-51 1993 Porsche 911 RSR has only 6 miles on the odometer

It's no secret that air-cooled Porsche 911s have soared in value in recent years. In fact, it's not uncommon for some cars to have doubled or tripled in value in the past decade. That said, some 911s are more equal than others. For example, this 1993 Porsche 911 RSR that's going up for auction next month through RM Sotheby's is just one of 51 964 RSRs made. That alone would be enough to send the price upward. The fact that this particular example has only 6 miles on the odometer and hasn't been…
It's up for auction, and you can just imagine the price it might bring.

What to make of this Porsche 911 GT3 spotted sans wing

While the fact that Porsche is working on yet another iteration of the venerable 911 is not unusual, some details of this particular prototype certainly are. First of all, Porsche hasn't done a thing to disguise this car. This allows us to clearly see that the car is 911 GT3-based, since the bumpers, lights, exhaust, and even the wheels are all identical. There is a difference, though, which brings us to the other odd part of the car. This GT3 doesn't have a wing. Not only does it not have a…
Could this be a 911 R successor?

Comments are back | Letter from the Editor

Hello there! A few weeks back we relaunched the site with a new design, and we removed comments. Today, they are back, with a new system that will allow better moderation and tools like email notifications. You may be wondering why we shut down comments in the first place. Put simply, the old commenting system wasn't a positive environment, and it was difficult for us to stay on top of off-topic or even hateful posts.
