It's easy to fall in love with the Porsche 911 reimagined by Singer Vehicle Design. We test the company's latest recreation with the 4.0-liter flat-six engine.


A Road-Going Racer Still Worthy Of The Flying B

With the Bentley GT3 racecar's busted diff still smoking, we grab the keys to the roadgoing GT3-R and get one hell of a consolation test.


A More Compelling Reason To Go American

The 2016 ATS-V is Cadillac's most compelling performance car to date. We put one through its paces on the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX.


"AMG Lite" Still Proves Substantial

No, it's not a full-blown, fire-breathing AMG like the C63, and it doesn't get the newfangled "Mercedes-AMG" nomenclature. But after spending some seat time in the C450 AMG Sport, there's a decent chance you'll be quite alright with that.


Hitting The Track In The Race-Ready Raging Bull

Lamborghini turned its Huracán supercar into a circuit-attacking racecar, by way of this LP 620-2 Super Trofeo. We hit the track in the new Raging Bull to see the result of Lambo's more hardcore efforts.


An Underdog No More

What's an aspiring Japanese automaker to do in 2015's golden age of affordable luxury? If you're Acura, you scramble to release a mid-cycle upgrade to elevate the status of your 2016 ILX sedan.


Famed Italian Bikemaker Goes Affordable 'Lifestyle'... Authentically?

Ducati's new Scrambler is a surprisingly funky and affordable motorcycle that aims to court a new audience. Will it succeed? We ride it and place our bets.


Has Daimler's Ultralux Brand Gone From Overpriced To High Value?

Mercedes-Benz is relaunching its failed Maybach ultra-luxury division – sort of. This 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 inaugurates a new sub-brand with a suddenly reasonable-sounding price tag. We drive it and let you know if it still feels like big money.


Japan's Mid-Engined Hero Hits The Road With Big Hybrid Power

Acura's long-awaited NSX is finally here, and it's longer and wider that the 2013 concept that signaled its revival. It's also got a hybrid powertrain with 550+ horsepower.


Vince Granatelli's crazy turbine-powered 1978 Chevrolet Corvette is headed to auction later this month at Barrett-Jackson, but not before our man gets some seat time behind the wheel of this one-off jet-powered classic.


Unfiltered Fun For The Price Of A Honda Civic

Because I'm a reasonable human being and firmly believe that vehicle styling is a subjective matter, I drew some perspective on my borrowed 2015 Polaris Slingshot from fellow Los Angeles residents.


Bringing The Adventure Closer To Home

Motorcycle trends come and go like fashion, and the latest two-wheeled style du jour is the adventure bike. Chunky and rugged, these (sometimes) dirt-ready rides often take cues from the massive, Armageddon-ready rigs you'd find on the Dakar Rally. In their most neutered form, they can start as street bikes and adapt for adventure duty by adding taller suspension setups, removable saddlebags, bigger fuel tanks, and better wind protection.


Driving Stuttgart's Amidships Offerings At Laguna Seca

As an automaker's identity evolves over years, its signature becomes defined by any number of factors – heritage (Mercedes-Benz), image (Lamborghini), or market share (Toyota). In the case of Porsche, it was an engineering quirk that forged the German company's most enduring character trait.

In Which Molsheim Courts Us Like We Are Captains Of Industry

Let's say you're rich. Filthy rich – you've got cars in garages of homes you can't remember you own, rich.


It's A Long Story...

A quick look at a scatter plot that charts rear legroom against luxury sedan MSRPs reveals a dearth of spacious bargains – few, if any, luxury sedans offer exceptionally spacious rear accommodations at a relatively low starting price. To fill the vacuum, Infiniti has made its Q70 available in a Q70L variant – in English, long wheelbase – for 2015.


Not Your Typical Italian Exotic

Throw EV enthusiasts into a room with diehard motorcyclists, and prepare to see sparks fly. The perfect storm of oil and water famously struck when electric bikes first competed at the Isle of Man TT, and the conflict continues every time a battery-powered two-wheeler crosses swords with one of its internal combustion ancestors on public roads.


Not Cheap, But Worth Every Penny

The Porsche Boxster and Cayman will forever nip at the heels of their big brother, the 911 Carrera, and perpetuating this tradition are the latest GTS variants, which add yet another arrow to the quiver of the plucky mid-engined platform.


A Mid-Engine Master Of Driving Dynamics

You know the sound: the startling pop-brraaap-pop-pop shotgun fire of unspent flammables coursing through exhaust pipes that usually signals a raw, naughty powerplant beneath the hood.


Better Riding Through Science

The Ducati Monster 1200 S has the power-to-weight ratio of a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse and the contact patch of a playing card. I'm elbows deep into leaning this pulsing, growling, screaming red animal across a one-lane hairpin on the edge of a volcanic island, when a sequence of questions flit through my mind: What if I hit a patch of gravel? What if a car rounds the corner and barrels toward me? What if I overcook the bend and somersault down the mountain, followed by a tumbling
