Jet-Powered Tesla vs PLAID, Need We Say More
2021 can quite easily be called the year of the Plaid. Tesla’s newest flagship has pretty much annihilated the competition in drag races, ever since it went on sale, with the exception of a few of course, and what better way to kick things off for this year with yet another Plaid duel, this time going up against an older Model S, However, this is no ordinary Model S, but it is Warped Perceptions jet-powered P85. This should be an interesting one. Let’s look at some numbers now.

Honda Teases Us with the New Civic Type R Once Again
Even with COVID-19 and the digital world looking to wipe live, brick-and-mortar auto shows from existence, Japan is giving these ancient relics at least one last shot. The Tokyo Auto Salon has produced several interesting cars in 2022, although most will never see the light of day ever again. Honda, however, showed off the new Civic Type R in the flesh, albeit covered in camouflage. The Japanese marque also released a new teaser video to get even more hype for the hottest of hatchbacks.
2022 Infiniti QX55 - Driven
The Infiniti QX55 was launched four years after the second-generation QX50 – in 2021 as a 2022 model – as a competitor to models like the Audi Q5 Sportback, Mercedes GLC Coupe, and (to some extent) the Acura RDX. Essentially a QX50 with a raked roof, the QX55 serves a spiritual successor to the Infiniti FX \ Infiniti QX70. With the coupe-SUV segment being more crowded than ever, was releasing a new model based on one that was due for a facelift really a wise move? We spent a week with the QX55 to find out, and this is our story.

SVE Oletha Is The High-Performance Z8 BMW Never Made
For better or worse (definitely worse), it seems that old-school performance cars with driver engagement in mind will be built by boutique manufacturers and in very small numbers. Although we occasionally get cars like the Toyota GR86 and Nissan Z, modern cars keep getting heavier, more complicated, and more artificial. With that being said, Smith Vehicle Engineering (SVE) has taken a BMW Z4 E86 and has done something remarkable with it.
2022 Subaru Ascent - Driven
There are a plethora of mid-size three-row SUVs that you can buy today, and the Subaru Ascent is one of them. The Ascent has some things going in its favor, like a standard all-wheel-drive system, smooth ride, etc., but it also has many things that will make potential customers look elsewhere. For starters, there’s the Continuously Variable Transmission that offers a supple ride, but comes with the infamous rubber band effect. The third-row isn’t the most spacious either. But, all that said, you get a whole lot of safety tech even in the base trims, amongst other things. We recently tested the Ascent, and here’s all you need to know about this SUV from Subaru.
The 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale Looks Production-Ready In These Latest Spy Shots
Alfa Romeo currently has just two products in its portfolio and it desperately needs new products to sustain itself comfortably. Enter: The Tonale. The Tonale concept was showcased at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, and roughly three years later, it seems like the production version is ready. Alfa Romeo is yet to debut the compact SUV, but it has been spied testing in the snow; this time, with lesser clothing.
The Tonale will be based on the same platform as the Jeep Renegade. The compact SUV has been spied only with the wraps on so far, but it does look sharp. Fortunately, a lot of elements from the concept seem to have been retained. It goes unsaid that the Tonale will have a lot of design cues from the Stelvio as well. Some production-spec details can also be seen here vis-à-vis the concept, like bigger lights, standard wing mirrors instead of cameras, and regular door handles.
The Tonale is expected to debut in February and could go on sale from July.
Check out the gallery below and let us know in the comments section what you think of the upcoming Alfa Romeo Ronale
Do You Remember The Mitsuoka Orochi?
An Ambitious Project Has Turned a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Into a Modern-Day Chevy Chevelle
The Chevrolet Camaro does not need an introduction. It has been a torn in the Mustang’s sights since 1966.

That is exactly what Vision Retro Designs has done with this 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, in order to make it look like a 1969 Chevy Chevelle, and the results are epic.
1969 Dodge Charger CAPTIV by Ring Brothers
Dodge Charger is one of the most coveted muscle cars ever made. Like other iconic muscle cars, the mighty MOPAR has been immortalized in cinema, with movies like “Bullit”, “Deathproof”, “Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry”, and many others. But there’s another way of immortalizing an automotive icon – by reimagining it. When it comes to that, the Ringbrothers are masters at building restomods, and they just came up with a one-off, 1969 Dodge Charger that they built for a special client.

The Noble M500 Harkens Back to Simpler Times
For the past 12 years, Noble’s only production car was the M600. Then, in 2018 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the company revealed the M500 concept and announced its intention to bring a new model placed under the M600.

The Nissan Z GT500 Is Beyond Extreme, and It’s Awesome

The Cheapest Porsche Money Can Buy Today
Porsche is a brand revered by auto-enthusiasts around the world. Though the Stuttgart-based marque is best known for its 911 range, they tend to fetch top dollar, especially the older cars, and this makes them inaccessible to the masses. But Porsche DNA has blessed a lot of other models over the years, so here are our top Porsche picks for enthusiasts on a budget.
Lexus And JAOS Corporation Create Off Road LX For 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon
When Lexus launched the new LX luxury SUV everyone was impressed by how good it looks and how luxurious the interior is. However, we have to admit the LX does not exactly excel when it comes to its off-road capabilities. For example, the U.S. will only get the F Sport model that will come equipped with only one rear Torsen limited-slip differential.
The Japanese market is a lot luckier: it will also get an LX Offroad trim equipped with three locking differentials. For the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon, Lexus tries to see how far these off-road capabilities of the LX can be improved and it came up with a one-off edition developed in cooperation with JAOS Corporation.
