    Video: A closer look at the 2015 BMW M3 and M4
    1390006800

    It's fair to say we're going to miss the E92 BMW M3. Its high-revving V8, flame-styled looks and excellent driving character made it quite simply one of the best cars of the 2000s. Its replacements, the new M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe have a lot to live up to. We still have a few months to wait until ...

    Earlier this week at the Detroit Auto Show, Chevrolet introduced its all-new 2015 Corvette Z06 in showroom-glorious Velocity Yellow. But that wasn't the only example on the automaker's stand.

    When the doors of the Detroit Auto Show open to the public tomorrow, there's no doubt that the Chevy, BMW and Lexus booths will attract plenty of foot traffic with flashy sports cars.

    1389988860

    We're aching to get our hands on the new, at-least-625-horsepower, supercharged Chevrolet Corvette Z06, but until that wonderful day arrives, we're content just knowing what this beast sounds like. We're still waiting to hear it at full chat, but this video at least shows the brawny sound of the ...

    1389918480

    There is no doubt that the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was one of the hottest vehicles to debut this week at the Detroit Auto Show, but Autoblog West Coast Editor Michael Harley takes it one step further by calling it the "highest-performing vehicle the North American automakers have ever made." ...

    Video: A closer look at the Kia GT4 Stinger Concept
    1389902220

    When we named the Kia GT4 Stinger Concept as our top debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, our comments section had, let's call it, a tantrum. People were not pleased. Debuting alongside hugely significant production cars like the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, Ford Mustang, Ford F-150, Lexus RC F, BMW ...

    Vice President Tours Auto Show With Big Three CEOs 1389900480

    The downside of being the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden says, is that he's not allowed to drive anymore. A chauffer might suit most politicians just fine, but for the son of a car dealer, such restrictions are grating. His 1967 Chevy Corvette, a wedding gift from his dad, sits ...

    Video: A closer look at the 2015 Ford F-150
    1389893400

    Despite having to share Ford's Detroit Auto Show stand with the hot new 2015 Mustang, the brand-new F-150 was arguably an even more important debut. Why? Ford moved some 700,000 examples of its F-Series truck in 2012, making it not only the best-selling pickup truck, but the top-selling vehicle ...

    If there's a trend in the auto industry we can firmly get behind, it's the small, light and affordable rear-drive coupe. The positive critical reception to the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ twins has encouraged other manufacturers to look at building their own rear drivers, and even a few to show ...

    Video: Watch the incredibly complicated operation of Porsche's new targa roof
    1389747480

    Despite Porsche having claimed the name, targa tops are nothing new. In addition to the semi-roofless version of the 911, plenty of cars in the past have used removable roof panels – the new Corvette Stingray has one (as have prior generations), and this type of open-air experience has been ...

    Detroit: 2014 Scion FR-S and tC Monogram Series are some spruced coupes
    1389745680

    Scion is in the unusual position of offering a pair of inexpensive sports two-doors, the rear-drive FR-S coupe and the front-drive tC hatchback. Despite offering outwardly similar size and form factors, the two have vastly different characters, chiefly because of their different drivetrain ...

    One doesn't normally think of Acura offering anything to mix it up with the SRT Viper, Lamborghini Gallardo, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Nissan GT-R, Audi R8 and Ferrari 458 Italia (at least while the NSX is still off in the ether), but that's exactly what's about to happen. Honda's premium outpost is ...

    With the polar vortex fresh in the minds of Autoblog's Detroit-based staff, we're finding it funny that any manufacturer would choose January in the Motor City to show off a new and highly anticipated convertible to the general media and public for the first time.
