    Video: Porsche revisits its remarkable SC East African Safari rally car
    1404930480

    Porsche and motorsports just seem to go hand-in-hand. The brand has defined itself by its ability to compete on the track with the concept that racing bred better road cars. While we are used to seeing 911s speeding along circuits around the world, the rear-engine icon's success in rallying is ...

    Video: Celebrating the Ferrari F40 and the man who raced it
    1404777420

    The Ferrari F40 has become one of the iconic cars of the last 50 years. It presaged the supercars of the future with its extensive use of carbon fiber and turbocharged engine, but it was also old school with no traction control, stability control or even anti-lock supervision to save the driver ...

    Video: Comedians in Cars Getting Cocaine with Joel McHale and Tony Hale
    1404750600

    We have to hand it to Jerry Seinfeld for making a go of his web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The king of observational humor manages to get some of the biggest names in comedy into some seriously cool cars (and some rather curious ones). But what if they weren't getting coffee? What ...

    Auctions: Ferrari 250 GTO heading to The Quail with no reserve
    1404496800

    It's not every day that a Ferrari 250 GTO changes hands. It is, after all, one of the most highly coveted cars ever made, and there were only 39 of them built in the first place. So when one goes up for sale, it tends to fetch millions. Tens of millions, actually, and the prices keep ...

    Video: Muscle cars, donuts, burnouts and fireworks; these guys really love America
    1404489600

    It's early July and that means that it's time to celebrate our nation's independence. Of course, we all observe the holiday in our own way. For some it's just nice to sit outside with a cool beverage and enjoy the outdoors. Of course, if you're like the guys from Bullet Motorsports, the best way ...

    Report: Cuba sells just 50 cars in first six months after ban lift
    1404429300

    Cuba is known as a nation that loves its cars. After the 1959 Cuban Revolution, the government made it nearly impossible to obtain a new vehicle. So Cuban drivers kept their '50s classics on the road even through today. Given this automotive enthusiasm, you might be surprised to learn that since ...

    Featured: Dodge lets us drive 100-years' worth of history [w/videos]
    We Head To The Historic Dodge Estate To Test Drive The Company Museum 1404403020

    A raft of important production models from the last hundred years were available for me to either drive or ride in. Dodge is 100 years old this year. So, as happened on Ford's recent centennial, the 50-year birthday of the Porsche 911, and others, the company has an excuse to trot out the ...

    Video: Ferrari 312PB looks amazing, sounds like you're ripping sheets
    1404259260

    Whether it's Mozart, Beethoven or The Beatles, they all (arguably) pale in comparison to just the right engine note for many auto enthusiasts. Petrolicious has found one of the absolute best with its latest focus on a 1972 Ferrari 312PB. The 312PB is important for more than just its ability to ...

    Featured: GM reunites Corvette owner with car stolen 33 years ago [w/video]
    1404241260

    Last week, we told you the story of George Talley, a 71-year-old Detroit man who had just received a whole heap of good news. Talley was informed by AAA and the Michigan State Police that his stolen Chevrolet Corvette had been found... after 33 years. While that's well and dandy, getting the car ...

    Official: National Corvette Museum votes to preserve sinkhole
    1403805480

    Since the catastrophe, attendance has shot up 59 percent. The people behind the National Corvette Museum really know how to turn lemons into lemonade. In February, a 40-feet wide by 60-feet deep sinkhole opened up in the middle of the museum's Skydome, eating eight rare 'Vettes on display. ...

    Video: Porsche 356 Outlaw is the other Continental
    1403740680

    In Porsche parlance, 'outlaw' basically means 'hot rod,' and that definition can vary from person to person. For Jack Griffin and his 1955 Porsche 356 Continental, it means taking a great car to start with and reworking it to become a classic coupe that fits its driver perfectly. The latest video ...

    Video: GM helping to reunite owner with Corvette stolen 33 years ago
    1403722680

    Detroit resident George Talley has reason to celebrate after finding out that his classic Chevrolet Corvette is coming home 33 years after being stolen, and General Motors is helping get it back to him.

    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 ...

    Video: Xcar journeys back to the original Corvette Stingray
    1403541780

    The history of the Corvette may go back to the first-generation model that debuted in 1953, but that six-cylinder rounded roadster bore little in common to the Vettes that followed. No, the real progenitor to the Corvette we know today was the C2 – a model which, without coincidence to ...

    Auctions: McQueen's Porsche 917 from Le Mans races to the auction block
    1403532900

    Steve McQueen may have been the headline actor of the motorsport cult classic film Le Mans, but we all know who the real star was. Or rather, what: the Porsche 917. More specifically, it was the Gulf-liveried #22 – not McQueen's #21 – that won the race, making it one of the most ...

    Video: Jerry Seinfeld doesn't love Sarah Jessica Parker's new Country Squire in latest CiCGC
    1403278080

    Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee has finally returned for its fourth season of combining Jerry Seinfeld, a miscellaneous celebrity and a cup of java. But rather than fondly remembering some older piece of automotive machinery, this time around, Seinfeld is utterly unable to keep his hatred of ...

    Video: Watch this lead sled go rallying in Finland
    1403222340

    Custom cars generally fit into neat little boxes in terms of how they are used. For example, you're unlikely to see a modded Corvette going rock crawling; it's just not what it's made for (though we bet it'd look awesome, at least for a minute). In the same way, chopped, channeled and customized ...
