New STI Performance Parts Make the Subaru BRZ Look Menacing

New STI Performance Parts Make the Subaru BRZ Look Menacing

The new Subaru BRZ looks rather bland. These bits and bobs will change that

You are probably aware that Toyota GR 86 and Subaru BRZ were unveiled simultaneously in Japan-spec guise not too long ago. Both sports cars are good for 232 horsepower in Japan and come with a rather toned down design language, yet Subaru is upping the ante with a set of accessories and STI performance parts aimed at those who want a spicier-looking BRZ.

This Supercharged 2JZ-Swapped Toyota 86 Is Your Personal Burnout Jesus

This Supercharged 2JZ-Swapped Toyota 86 Is Your Personal Burnout Jesus

Light Toyota frame plus tough Toyota engine gets you clouds of tire smoke

Before the new Supra arrived, Toyota’s solely purpose-built sports car was the 86 (or GT86 or FT86 or Subaru BRZ or Scion FR-S, if you wish). In the U.S., the 2020 86 makes 200 or 205 horsepower and 151 or 156 pound-feet of torque depending on which gearbox you pick, so while it’s not oozing power, the 86 has other aces up its sleeves.

For example, the 86 is agile and overall a hoot to drive but, for some, a nimble RWD car that doesn’t need to be driven fast to generate quite the thrills simply doesn’t do the trick. Take this nice chap from Australia, for example.

The Craziest Alpina Cars

The Craziest Alpina Cars

Ever since its inception, Alpina has been tastefully filling niches wherever BMW wouldn’t or couldn’t

Alpina’s knack for tweaking BMWs has its roots in the early 1960s, when Burkard Bovensiepen wanted to make his BMW 1500 go faster and developed a Weber dual carburettor system. Since then, Alpina’s road to tuning excellence took the trajectory of a steady upward curve sprinkled with rad builds that didn’t just offer more power or more torque, but a complete package of tweaks that complemented the extra oomph. We’ll be looking at some of them in the following lines.

2021 Ares Design S1

This is the hottest Corvette-based supercar ever design, but will it go into production?

The Ares Design S1 is an upcoming supercar built by Ares Design, the company led by former Lotus CEO Dany Bahar. The exotic-looking S1 is based on the C8-generation Chevrolet Corvette, borrowing the chassis, engine, gearbox, and electronic underpinnings from the American mid-engined sports car.

This 1996 Porsche 993 911 Turbo Gemballa GTR 600 Redefines Bespoke Design

It took two tuning phases to bring this 911 to its current state

Gemballa didn’t make a name for itself with tame builds. Everything that comes out of the Porsche-centric tuner’s workshops is fast, powerful, and loud. And we’re not even talking about exhaust sounds. Just check out this Gemballa GTR 600.

Porsche Gets Overly Sensitive, Protests Design of the Singer ACS

Is this Porsche or Ferrari that we’re talking about here? SMH

Since Singer Vehicle Design announced the ACS off-road 911 not that long ago, we have been sitting on our toes waiting for the final iteration to come out. As it turns out, we will have to show a little more bit of patience because there has been a hiccup related to the PORSCHE lettering stamped on the vehicle.

This Custom Mid-Engine Mini Is the Definition of a Pocket Rocket

Although pocket ballistic missile would be a better description honestly

Engine swaps, we’ve see quite a few. Burly V-8s replacing puny flat-fours or screaming V-10 engines giving new life to Japanese sports cars and muscle cars alike. A motorcycle engine powering a Mini, however, is not something you see every day.

This Porsche Cayenne Turbo Safari From Flat Six Is a True Off-Road Performance Machine

We are simply getting so many Dakar vibes from this build

You don’t have to take our word for it that the first-gen Porsche Cayenne is a darn good off-roader without any aftermarket bits and bobs attached to it. YouTube is your friend here.

However, imagine what would a 2004 Cayenne be able to pull off on rough terrain if someone prepared it for such challenges. Oh, wait, it happened, because Canada’s Flat Six has built a Cayenne that’s bordering into motorsport territory - at least as far as looks go.

This Porsche 356 Restomod on a 911 Chassis Is Exactly What Porsche Needs to Do

This Porsche 356 Restomod on a 911 Chassis Is Exactly What Porsche Needs to Do

Perhaps with a more tasteful approach?

The year was 1948 when the first car to wear the Porsche logo left the assembly line in Gmund, Austria. Named the 356, the roadster was fitted with a 1.1-liter air-cooled flat-four engine borrowed from Volkswagen which cranked out about 35 horsepower.

The 356 is the car that paved the way for the 911 and in an interesting plot twist, it’s a 911 chassis that might bring to life the 356, albeit in restomod version.

This Mercedes 300SL Has a Supercharged AMG Monster of a Heart

See what happens when you marry a Mercedes 300SL body to an SLK AMG chassis and engine

The Mercedes-Benz 300SL is one of the most iconic cars ever built by the German brand. It’s also one of the most beautiful too. Built in fewer than 3,500 units from 1957 to 1963, the 300SL is a rare items nowadays and well-maintained models can fetch in excess of $500,000. Definitely not a car for the average Joe. But while some rich folks would rather hunt an original 300SL down, other enthusiasts build restomod versions of them. John Sarkisyan from S-Klub is one of those people. Having built a coupe model in the past, he recently married the body of a 300SL to a modern Mercedes chassis and a supercharged V-8 engine. And the end result is quite impressive.

Chris Forsberg's 370Z Rally Car Tribute: Sideways Gravel Shreds!

Chris Forsberg’s 370Z Rally Car Tribute: Sideways Gravel Shreds!

That’s a nice way to honor your rally-racing elders

Believe it or not, Nissan is no stranger to rally racing. Back in 1996, the Japanese company raced at the Paris-Dakar Rally with a modded Terrano, albeit with zero success.

However, back in 1970, Nissan took a Datsun Bluebird 510 and made it into a rally car - dubbed the 1600SS - that won the East-African Safari Rally. One year after, in 1971, Nissan came back with a safari-style version of the 240Z. It, too, won the rally. That particular car is celebrated today with a one-off build based on the 370Z.
