Most times when you ask someone ‘in-the-know’ what their ideal Porsche 911 year and spec would be, you’ll get an answer somewhere between 1970s RS and 991 GT3. It seems that folks so often pine for the most hardcore and most ‘track-focused’ versions of this rear-engined German anomaly. But that’s not really what they…
The last true Alfa?
Just like everyone who ingests car news, I’ve been very excited to experience Ford’s hottest hatch. It did not disappoint.
Step one, disable traction control. Step two, depress the throttle, feather, counter-steer. Repeat.
Is a decently fun experience. Check it out!
The other day I didn’t have much going on, so I called up my buddy. He asked if I wanted to go drive the new 718, and I thought about it for a while.
shot some photos for custom Defender company Arkonik last weekend, such cool trucks
When a bad Ferrari is really not so bad.
Some people might sip artisanal coffee and read the paper on a Sunday morning. Others gas up and head North to wreak havoc on a small-town airstrip in cars with many hundreds of horsepower.
It just sounds so good. Nothing else really matters about this car. It handles marvelously, yes, but the sound, holy hell the sound. And it’s not just the sound at wide-open-throttle, it’s the sound at any RPM from gug-gug to BWAAAAA. It’s beautiful.
When one finds his (or her) self deep in the desert with a twelve cylinder British sedan of the utmost sleekness, there’s really only one option. Hold the go-pedal until you either run out of road or start to pee your pants.

Two classic Mini Coopers, a dark warehouse, a camera, and a whole lot of prancing around with an LED wand makes for a damn good Friday night.
The other night I did something I do a lot. I met up with a guy I’ve only met briefly in the past to go out in his car and...wait that could be misleading. Let me start over. The other night I shot some photos of a bonkers ‘01 S4, and it turns out I first met this car about 4 years ago.
Let’s say you met a time traveler. Someone who had been instantly transported from a time long ago to 2016. This person would have zero concept of modern technology, and transportation, and would inevitably be very curious about, well, everything.
Driving old cars can be a mixed bag. On one hand, they tend to be nice to look at and fun to see how “things used to be.” On the other hand, they tend to be mechanically temperamental and lacking relative to what we may be accustomed to in terms of performance and handling.
S4 Avant a fellow opponaut just picked up, more after the jump
A giddy group of tech journalists nervously shift their weight, fidgeting some. Zac Moseley, owner of Classic Car Club Manhattan (CCC), is giving his “how-to-not-wreck-our-supercars” speech. We’re about to set off on a drive with four exceptional vehicles to test a small plastic box that aims to unlock the full…
It’s pretty amazing what you can do with a cheap LED and a DSLR. Last weekend a friend visited and brought this beastly yellow machine, of course I couldn’t help but break out the tripod and snap a few shots.
The McLaren 12C is a fantastic car, there’s no disputing this fact. It was born from years of street and race proven technology and received by the automotive community with open arms. But there was something missing.
