2018 Mustang or 2018 Challenger? Which is the right one for you?

We recently had the chance to drive a Mustang and Challenger back to back and compare them. In my mind the Challenger isn’t so much a competitor to the Mustang as it is an alternative. Say what? You see, the Mustang and Camaro are very much alike in their mission, their size, and their nature. […]

2018 Lexus LC 500h Review

The Lexus LC Hybrid is a luxury car enigma, it’s a style-forward large luxury performance coupe… with a focus on fuel economy rather than performance. See it as the spiritual successor of the Lexus SC rather than a modern interpretation of the LFA. Direct competition is hard to nail down, but the upcoming BMW 850i […]

2018 / 2019 Ford Mustang Ecoboost Review

Ford’s Mustang has been the affordable RWD coupe to beat in America for a while, but in 2016 Chevrolet did just that with the new Camaro. That caused Ford to sharpen their pencil, and refresh the Mustang for 2018. Does that put this little pony back on top? Not quite, but it is the car […]

2018 Dodge Hellcat Widebody First Drive

Nobody does crazy like Dodge and nothing seems crazier than their original 707 horsepower hellcat… And that includes the 2018 Hellcat “Widebody” which is the more expensive, but less crazy Hellcat. Are you confused yet? Basically what FCA did with the original Hellcat was jam a big engine in the Challenger and stuff the biggest […]

2018 MacLaren 570S Review

Looking to burn $200,000+ and want something more unique than a 911? The McLaren 570S is an interesting option and for some reason they let me drive one. Note: We decided to truncate our usual format because it didn’t make sense with this car. 0-30:  Not tested 0-60: 2.7 Seconds 1/4 Mile: Not Tested 60-0 Braking: 102 Feet

2018 Lexus LC 500 Review

As a fairly conservative company Lexus has dabbled with two door vehicles but the luxury brand wasn’t totally invested until now. With the Lexus RC coupe tackling the compact and mid-size coupe segment Lexus turned their attention to shoppers looking for more power, more pizazz and a six-figure price tag. The result is the all-new […]

2018 Audi A5 Review

Audi’s all-new A5 sets a new bar for Audi coupes in America. Based off their new A4 sedan, the A5 claims to have one of the best balanced chassis Audi has ever made and it shows when you get out on your favorite winding road. With nimble handling, more power under the hood and one […]

2018 Mercedes AMG GT C First Drive Review

Just like the 3-Series is the benchmark for compact luxury sedans, the Porsche 911 is the car to beat in the performance coupe segment and Mercedes has decided to go all-in on their 911-fighting GT. The GT family is, interestingly enough, not a “Mercedes-Benz” but a “Mercedes-AMG” and was designed entirely in house by the […]

2017 Mazda MX-5 RF Review

It’s hard to tweak perfection, but Mazda decided to try with the 2017 MX-5 RF hard top. Ditching the canvas top will no doubt make purists cringe but the truth is that although it does dull the MX-5 slightly, it makes the affordable roadster attractive to a broader audience. The real question is: can a […]

2017 Fiat 124 Spider Review

Fiat’s 124 Spider is basically a modified MX-5 with a turbo engine, but the whole is more than the sum of its parts. Without the Fiat 124, the MX-5 would likely have been cancelled. Without the MX-5 the Fiat 124 would never have existed. Think of the two cars as fraternal twins, they may have […]
