    Report: Noble developing M600 roadster with paddle shifters
    1409054340

    Want to get your hands on a Noble? May we first compliment you on your choice, good sir or madam, because the British niche manufacturer produces some of the most direct, hardcore sports cars on the market. And that, thanks to Rossion and its Noble-derived Q1, includes the United States. But if ...

    Video: Here's the Youabian Puma in motion
    1408733820

    Want to know the low point of my trip to Monterey for last week's Car Week festivities? It wasn't the four-hour layover in Phoenix or getting stuck in the horrible traffic surrounding the event. No, it happened at the Concorso Italiano, when after strolling through the fields of gorgeous Alfa ...

    Report: Dallara working on its own sports car project
    1408653240

    If the name Dallara doesn't ring a bell, you're probably not a racing fan. Because while Dallara is, like Ferrari, Lamborghini and Pagani, a performance automaker based in northern Italy, it focuses on racing cars and doesn't produce cars for the road. At least not under its own name, anyway. But ...

    Report: Caparo T1 Evolution to carry $1.5M sticker price
    1408487400

    If you're looking for racecar performance for the street (or at least for non-competitive track days), it doesn't get much more direct than the Caparo T1. With "only" 575 horsepower on tap, the lightweight F1-car-for-the-road will rocket to 60 miles per hour in 2.5 seconds and grip the tarmac ...

    Monterey: Panoz reveals 25th anniversary Esperante Spyder at McCall's
    1408023060

    Panoz has kept the Esperante around for about fourteen years now, making it one of the longer-serving models on the market. But in Monterey this week, the American niche automaker is introducing a revised version of the Esperante that aims to keep it current. As we've reported twice before, the ...

    Video: Local Motors opens up submissions for new Sportscar Platform
    1407933840

    Last month we reported that Local Motors was working on a new sports car project. Now the grass-roots automaker has released this video detailing how the project will take shape. (In fact the video even features our earlier report, if you watch closely at the 32-second mark.) Rather than ...

    Report: China's Haval readying Local Motors Rally Fighter knockoff
    1407441600

    By now, it's clear that the Chinese auto industry has shown us a demonstrated will (if not necessarily the complete ability) to copy something that another automaker has made. In this case, the subject appears to be the Local Motors Rally Fighter. Believe it or not, a Chinese automaker has ...

    Teased: Caparo packing 700 hp into new T1 Evolution
    1407415440

    There are a lot of automakers that throw the term "racecar for the road" around, but few have ever taken the recipe quite as far as the Caparo T1. And now it's coming back in an even more extreme form called the T1 Evolution. Originally launched as the Freestream T1 before the project was taken ...

    Official: Hennessey Venom F5 to gun for 290 mph with 1,400 horsepower [UPDATE]
    1407173400

    UPDATE: Hennessey has released official renderings and verbiage on its forthcoming Venom F5, which we've incorporated into this story. Hennessey Performance had good reason to fly the star-spangled banner with pride when it recorded a top speed of over 270 miles per hour at the Kennedy Space ...

    U-Turn: What you missed on 7.28.14
    1406590200

    First Drive: Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Prototype It's quick – 0-60 in under four seconds. It's fast – top speed is estimated at around 186 miles per hour. And, rather surprisingly considering its status as a prototype, it drives pretty darn well. With a heart of gold borrowed from the ...

    Official: Polaris Slingshot hits the road on all three wheels [w/videos]
    1406554260

    If there's one thing that the likes of Morgan and Campagna have taught us, it's that a three-wheeled roadster can be one heck of a fun ride, bringing together the best elements of a motorbike and a sports car (albeit with none of the practicality). And now they've got a new challenger on their ...

    Official: ATS reveals new Leggera roadster
    1406212200

    Never heard of ATS? Nope, we're not talking about the Cadillac sports sedan. We're talking about Automobili Turismo e Sport, an Italian automaker formed by a group of renegade Ferrari staffers in the mid-'60s. ATS was only on the map for a couple of years, producing models like the 2500 GT and ...

    Featured: Nuclear-powered concept cars from the Atomic Age
    A Look Back At The Reactor-Fueled Optimism Of The '50s and '60s 1405614660

    In the 1950s and early 60s, the dawn of nuclear power was supposed to lead to a limitless consumer culture, a world of flying cars and autonomous kitchens all powered by clean energy. In Europe, it offered the then-limping continent a cheap, inexhaustible supply of power after years of rationing ...

    Report: Dubai Roadster already attracting orders ahead of debut
    1405270860

    We would generally advise against buying a car sight unseen, but when it comes to some supercars, the entire year's production run is often spoken for before the car is even unveiled. Which is fine, in some sense we guess, when it's coming from a known manufacturer like Ferrari or Lamborghini. ...

    Official: Pagani sends 40% of Huayras to US [w/video]
    1404937860

    As big as the North American market is, it's hard for a small-scale European automaker to make it over here. The cost of pursuing certification both in Europe and in the United States is just too high for a small outfit to absorb. That's why Pagani, for example, never brought the Zonda to North ...

    Report: Local Motors crowd-sourcing new lightweight sports car
    1404736980

    If you hear the name Local Motors and automatically associate it with the Rally Fighter pictured above, we can hardly blame you. It is the project for which the manufacturing startup is best known, after all. But it's not the only one it has undertaken to date. Local Motors has also sourced from ...

    Video: Glickenhaus reveals carbon chassis for SGC 003
    1404406800

    Aside from being a Hollywood director and investment banker, James Glickenhaus has one of the most awesome car collections around, full of classic Ferrari racers. But that wasn't enough for him, so he started commissioning his own: the Enzo-based Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina and the 430-based P4/5 ...

    Motorsports: MG reveals MG3 Trophy Championship concept at Silverstone
    1404129600

    The name MG hasn't often appeared on our radar screen in the decades since the British automaker stopped producing the little roadsters beloved by so many, and it hasn't been equated with "excitement" in about as long. These days it's owned by Chinese automaker SAIC and makes budget hatchbacks ...

    Video: Jay Leno is far beyond driven in his 1971 Pantera
    1403567880

    Perhaps it's fitting that the band Pantera is known for its heavy metal music, because the DeTomaso Pantera is the automotive equivalent of a metal album. It's short, aggressive and makes a mean sound. It doesn't mess around either, with a Ford 351-cubic-inch (5.75-liter) V8 sending mountains of ...

    First Drive: J. Ruiter Reboot Buggy [w/video]
    Think Outside The Box 1403193420

    "I've got a secret car club," designer Joey Ruiter tells me. The club in question is defined, in both spirit and literal membership, by the gold and black t-shirt he's wearing that bares the shorthand exclamation, "MIDZWL" across the chest. The letters are shorthand for the phrase "Might as ...
