Justin Cupler is the editor in chief of these TopSpeed.com pages, and he’s been a member of the team since 2012. Justin’s love for cars started back when he was just five years old, helping his dad work on his 1957 Chevy Bell Air and then his 1966 Chevelle SS. Justin’s love for car’s became a career when he began working on cars in the mid-2000s, then he moved into repair shop management shortly after.
After growing tired of fixing other peoples’ car problems, Justin earned a certificate in radio and television broadcasting, and dove into the world of talk radio and television. Following a short stint in radio, he then moved into the print journalism, and began writing for various automotive sites, including Cars Direct, Internet Auto Guides, Ebay Motors, and many more.
Justin loves his family first, but second in line is his 2004 Mazdaspeed MX-5 that he aiming to crest the 300-horsepower mark with. It’s a little rough right now, but we call that "character."

When BMW announced the new 3 Series, it also announced that the coupe and convertible versions of the luxury car will be offered as the new 4 Series. This meant that the M3 Coupe would slide over too and become the M4 Coupe. We have already seen the 4 Series Coupe and the M4 Concept, and now (...)
Just the other day, we caught the 2015 Cayenne having a Marilynn Monroe moment, as a gust of wind blew the cover off of its front end. That was the first really good look that we got at the front end of the Cayenne, but now we get a nice sneak peek at the Turbo model’s front end, as our spy (...)
The Mazda3 has been roaming the roadways since it replaced the Protégé in 2004, and despite a "second generation" in 2010, the design remained nearly the same throughout its lifespan. When Mazda announced its Kodo design language would make its way to the 3 in the 2014 model year, I couldn’t help (...)

What would you do if you were driving back from a casino or just a really high-stakes game of Bingo, and a cop pulled you over and took all of your winnings legally without any guilt on your end? I suspect you would be like me and be rather irate about it. Well, in Nevada and plenty of other (...)
