The Cadillac CTS-V Wagon is a road-thumping powerhouse that is probably unfairly judged because its a wagon. Despite its old-school looks that are in need of more than just an update, the vehicle is still pretty appealing. Similar to the coupe and sedan versions, the CTS-V Wagon is the kind of vehicle that enthusiasts are likely to fall in line for.

The big issue for the CTS-V Wagon are its outdated aesthetics, but these may be addressed sooner than later now that the all-new CTS Sedan has officially broken cover.

But even with the new-look CTS-V Wagon still at least a year away from arriving, you’ll still get what you’ll pay for with current generation look. It’s significantly less expensive than it’s rivals and more importantly, its ridiculous 500-horsepower performance puts it right in line with some of the top models in its class.

It’s another year of waiting for the Cadillac CTS-V Sedan before it gets its new looks, so for now, the high-performance luxury sedan is content selling its performance capabilities packaged with last-generation’s styling That, essentially, is the conundrum for the CTS-V Sedan. Talks of a new look gained some steam with the introduction of the next-generation CTS Sedan , and it’s likely that the CTS-V Sedan will follow suit next year, and inherit the new CTS styling.

For now, though, this is what customers are going to get, and while it may be a smarter move to just sit and wait for the new CTS-V, it’s not like this model has completely lost all its appeal.

It still performs like a muscle car disguised in a luxury sedan’s body, and its aesthetics still look pretty good, despite getting up there in age.

Mobil 1 and Tony Stewart — Smoke to most of us — are up to a whole new bag of tricks with their commercials. This time around, they borrowed the plot of one of every car buff’s favorite classic car flicks , Smokey and the Bandit. As expected, Tony plays the Bandit — a role once reserved for Burt Reynolds — and he is driving a Trans Am nearly identical to the 1976 Trans Am that originally starred in the movie.

So far, Mobil 1 has released three episodes of the six-part series and a trailer. If you’ve watched the original Smokey and the Bandit movies, then you will appreciate that a lot of the scenes are nearly identical to the original, save for a few humorous modifications. If you have not seen the original movies yet, I suggest watching them before checking out this series — you’ll definitely need to have the original plot in mind to really grasp these remakes.

We’ll pass on the remaining episodes as Mobil 1 releases them, so keep it locked on TopSpeed.

The Barrett-Jackson Auctions are always exciting to watch. The level of perfection in the restoration jobs, or perhaps the pristine level of OEM correctness in the majority of the vehicles rolling across the auction block can be stunning. The prices these cars sell at can be quite stunning as well with some climbing into the multiple millions range. With all the money and metal trading hands every year in Scottsdale, Arizona, it’s interesting to take a deeper look at what makes cars valuable.

Sure, it can be the rarity of a particular vehicle, like say a 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa, but it can also be a culmination of options that make a particular vehicle more valuable than another, despite being similar in quality.

That’s where this infographic steps in. By looking at all 1,397 vehicles sold at the 2014 Barrett-Jackson auction and crunching a bunch of numbers related to their generic options make-up like exterior and interior color, transmission style, and year of production, the folks at H&H Classic Parts came up with some answers.

Going strictly off the numbers of what options sold for the most, the highest average price would belong to a 1950s era Plymouth with a manual transmission, black exterior paint, and a dark interior. Conversely, a 1980s or newer Pontiac with an automatic transmission, white paint, and a light-colored interior would theoretically have brought the lowest average price.

The reality of the auction is much less ambiguous, however. The highest-priced, crazy outlier that fetched the most dough was a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Sting Ray with a red on red color scheme. The lucky winning bidder paid $3.85 million with an additional 10 percent in fees going to Barrett-Jackson. Whew!

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.

Updated 05/23/2014: Chevrolet announced today details for the 2015 Camaro ZL1, with the only updates for the new year including the addition of a new Blue Velvet Metallic exterior paint.This is the final model year for the fifth-generation Camaro.

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.
