  The cooled and fastest cars are here, check it out if you are looking for the ultimate exotics and supercars.


Buzzkill alert, folks...

It looks as if the report that Porsche would reveal the 911 Turbo Targa was not true. AutoBlog had a conversation with Nick Twork, Porsche North America Product Communication Manager, about the report, and he said that the report is "Totally False."

Turns out that all we’ll see at Geneva is Porsche’s new 919 Hybrid and 911 RSR race cars. Sure those are both really cool, but nowhere near as awesome as a Targa variant of the 911 Turbo.

Despite the report that Porsche will not release this heap of turbocharged, roofless hotness, we still think that one will eventually make its way onto the market. With that said, we present to you the TopSpeed rendering of the 911 Turbo Targa, courtesy of our rendering extraordinaire, Pratyush Rout.

Creating the rendering wasn’t too hard, as we simply took the 911 Targa , and added in the typical Turbo design cues, including the wider hips, rear air intakes, and a few other tasty bits. This gives the 911 Targa the bad-ass look it deserves, so we can only hope that Porsche decides to release it in the near future.

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is the fastest and most powerful production Camaro to ever roll out of a General Motors factory, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be improved. For the 2014 Camaro ZL1, Chevrolet has given the supercharged monster a visual overhaul, added some new equipment and changed what colors are available.

The result is a Camaro that looks better and performs better than ever before. With a Nurburgring lap time of 7:41, it also performs better than a massive collection of machines on the road today. From the aggressive body kit and the louvered hood, to the gargling and barking exhaust note, the latest ZL1 is ready to take care of business.

What hasn’t changed is the engine. The ZL1 is still powered by a supercharged V8 based on the incredible motor from the Corvette ZR1 . It is one of the most powerful production V-8s in the entire world, and it turns the Camaro into one of the fastest cars in the world.

BMW unveiled a new promo video that it shows the new M4 Coupe and M3 Sedan , and their amazing competency on the race track. Both cars were pushed to their limits and drifted seemed to handle it well.

Both the M3 and the M4 are powered by a 3.0-liter, in-line six-cylinder engine that features M TwinPower Turbo technology and deliver a total of 425 horsepower between 5,500 and 7,300 rpm and 406 pound-feet of torque between 1,850 and 5,500 rpm.

With this power in tow, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is made in 4.1 seconds with the six-speed manual transmission and in 3.9 seconds with the optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission. For both models, top speed is limited to 155 mph, but with the optional Driver’s Package top speed can be increased to 174 mph.

Check out the video to see what cool things both the M3 and the M4 can do on the race track.

Those January winter blues are in full swing and dreams of summertime fun and easy livin’ are incessant. Eluding those dreams just got even more impossible when we stumbled upon this amphibious beauty. Half SUV , half boat — the Panther is a completely custom vehicle designed and built by the small California company WaterCar; and it’s our idea of a good time.

The Panther’s obvious main attraction is its ability to transform from a road-going SUV to a seafaring boat within seconds, giving passengers the ultimate go-anywhere capability without huge compromises in either department. WaterCar says the Panther will do an impressive 80-plus mph on the road and 44 mph (38 knots) on the water. It will even tow a wakeboarder or skier at a decent clip.

A rear-mounted Honda 3.7-liter, VTEC V-6 sends power through a proprietary four-speed manual transaxle/transfer case that can switch between powering the rear wheels or the “Panther Jet” water-propulsion system. The Jeep Wrangler -like body is constructed of lightweight fiberglass and features a non-lawsuit-inducing six-slotted grille (seven slots on a real Jeep ), a folding windshield, half-doors, and a roll bar.

Under the bodywork lies a fiberglass V-type hull that allows for the high on-water speeds. Unlike the Titanic, sinking isn’t an issue. The Panther is filled with 32 cubic feet of U.S. Coast Guard-approved closed cell Styrofoam. Holding everything together is a custom chromoly tube chassis that’s impervious to corrosion. Huge hydraulic shocks retract the wheels up and down in second for quick changes between land and water modes.

All told, the WaterCar Panther is one awesome machine that somehow makes regular boating appear boring. Selling for $135,000, the Panther isn’t cheap, but it seems like a deal if life becomes as fun as the video above depicts.

Volkswagen unveiled the European version of the new Golf R at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, but there was no information given on the U.S>-spec model. Well, the wait is nearly over, as we will see the U.S.-spec Golf R at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show .

The only downside is that we cannot get out hands on the the most powerful Golf ever until the first quarter of 2015 when the new Golf R will be put on sale as a 2016 model. That means that there will be no 2014 or 2015 Golf R.

The new Golf R will deliver about 34 horsepower more than the previous generation, but even so, it will be more fuel efficient than its predecessor and a bit faster. Along with the improved engine, the 2016 Golf R will come with a permanent all-wheel-drive system, sports suspension, high-performance brake system and a high-performance brake system.

Just like the first Golf R, which was launched back in 2009, the new model will be distinguished by a sportier look, a lowered ride and, of course, plenty of "R" logos. Volkswagen will continue to offer the model in an exclusive Lapis Blue Metallic paint, with another seven exterior colors offered.

It seems like we are off to a good start with news from Ferrari this new year. Recently, we brought you stories of highly cherished, classic Ferraris that will hit the auction block in 2014 and a brand new LaFerrari popping up at a used car dealership . The asking price is three times that of a brand new La Ferrari .

If $3.2 million for a used LaFerrari seems rather steep, then you’ll likely be outraged by the roughly $3 million asking price of this used Ferrari Enzo . Yes, the F60 that preceded the LaFerrari.

Ferrari built just 400 examples of the Enzo, which makes it even rarer than the LaFerrari , which will see a 499 unit production run. This very example of the 2003 Ferrari Enzo is up for sale at Fusion Luxury Motors in Los Angeles with just 354 miles on its ticker.

It is the last of the V-12 Ferraris with fewer computers and electric motors. The Ferrari Enzo is widely regarded as one of the most awesome Ferrari models ever manufactured .

Until recently, the best place to spot supercars was the principality of Monte Carlo on the southern coast of France. Dubai has, in recent years, seen a huge inflow of high-performance sports cars and exclusive hypercars.

So much so that even the local police now roam in their very own high-power crowd pullers. The Dubai police department recently acquired a McLaren MP4-12C , adding to their fleet of Mustangs , Corvettes , Mercedes , Veyrons and Lamborghinis . Just imagine cruising through your local streets and suddenly seeing a Lambo with red and blues flashing behind you — now that’s some scary stuff.

The official video confirming the McLaren MP4-12C being added to the Dubai PD’s fleet is nothing short of glamorous. We still doubt that the Dubai police force will actually use these cars, the MP4 included, for anything besides gratuitous publicity.

Here we are with some more Ferrari news; this time it is about a Ferrari F40 .

The F40 was and still is an extremely potent track car that hails from the motorsport specialists at Ferrari . The F40 was built it to commemorate the prancing horse’s 40th anniversary, and it went on to win the hearts of car enthusiasts around the world. However, it is not a car you take for granted because it can turn around and bite you, if you lose focus behind the wheel.

That’s exactly what happened with a F40 owner sometime back. Sadly, he ended up crashing it to such an extent that he decided to sell it off. A bunch wise fellas from Gas Monkey Garage then bought it for $400,000 and set on the journey of rebuilding this awesome supercar .

What they came up with is even more breathtaking; a Ferrari F40 for the 21st century. A complete rebuild later, they now plan to auction it off at this year’s Barrett-Jackson auction. The restoration work was aired on the popular TV series "Fast N’ Loud" Given the long hours put in by the team, the car could fetch more than $1 million. So, a $600,000 margin may be good enough.

The 2014 Barrett-Jackson auction will be held from January 12th through 19th in Scottsdale, AZ.

One may mistake it for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive , but it’s not. This rather ostentatious SLS AMG has been modded by the folks at the AMG Performance Studio.

For an additional cost, owners can send their cars over for a complete makeover and here is one such example of an SLS AMG tastefully modified to customer preference with bright fluorescent exterior and black accents. Most of the aerodynamic upgrades you see here are standard equipment on the Black Series.

The AMG wheels have been finished in a gloss black with fluorescent accents. The brake calipers, however have been left Solarbeam Yellow which is bit odd.

Underneath the paint, all the bits and pieces are from the standard SLS AMG Black, along with that glorious 6.2-liter, V-8 engine that puts out 622 horsepower and 468 pound-feet of torque. With this monster V-8, 60 mph comes up in just 3.5 seconds and the top speed is set at 198 mph.

Anyway, Mercedes-Benz has not revealed the name of the person who ordered this flashy car, but we expect to hear more from them about the very first SLS AMG Black Series to get the spa treatment from its very own Performance studio.
