1991 GMC Syclone - The Factory-Built Compact Pickup That Humbled the Ferrari 348

The GMC Syclone was once the fastest truck in the world and could humble some of the greatest supercars

Well, they were all driven to extinction by a small, inconspicuous, and dirt cheap pickup truck. The GMC Syclone. Back in ’91, the Syclone was among the coolest vehicles out there that money could buy. With its turbocharged V-6 engine under the hood, this factory-built bundle of insanity was capable of churning out sportscar-like performance figures.

How Much Power Has The Shelby GT500 Lost After 182,271 miles?

How much Power is lost after 182,217 miles? This Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 gives the Answer

When owning a performance car, every bit of horsepower counts. That said, over time, wear and tear takes its toll on performance and some of those horses run away. Of course, it mainly depends on how the engine has been treated, both in terms of driving and maintenance. Mileage also takes its toll on the mechanical components of a car. But just how much power (if any) is lost over time? This “tired” Mustang Shelby GT500 answers that.

A special edition Mustang Mach 1 that finally delivers the amount of power promised by the name

767 mph (1,234 km/h) - also known as the speed of sound or Mach 1. Of course, as you can imagine, Clive Sutton was not able to build a Ford Mustang that can hit this speed. He was, however, able to modify the Ford Mustang Mach 1 so it can now develop a total of 767 horsepower. If you are not impressed, keep in mind that this is almost 300 horsepower more than the standard Mustang Mach 1.

2022 Dodge Barracuda: Is It Really Happening?

2022 Dodge Barracuda: Is It Really Happening?

The Plymouth Barracuda may return this year, but It will be under the Dodge Brand

With the exception of an electric Dodge Muscle car that will arrive in 2024, Stellantis has been awfully quiet regarding any performance models. It seems this might change, as Dodge is rumored to be bringing back one of the most iconic Muscle cars ever made – the Barracuda. Of course, the brand that used to sit under Dodge in the Chrysler portfolio is long gone, so if the Barracuda is making a comeback, it will be as a Dodge model. Here’s what we know so far.

This Tuned 1,200-Horsepower Ford Mustang GT500 Is Out To Draw Blood Against The Invincible Tesla Model S Plaid

The Model S Plaid has been a bully on the drag strip, but it may have finally met its match in this 1,200-horsepower Mustang

After obliterating the likes of the GT-R, the Taycan Turbo S, and most recently, the Dodge Demon, the Tesla Model S Plaid faced its next challenger (or should we say, its next ‘victim’?) in the form of a tuned Ford Mustang GT500. The Mustang puts out 1,200 horses; almost 200 ponies more than its electric rival. Just like the Tesla, this Mustang is also a sub-10-second car. Will the Plaid finally succumb to an internal combustion-engined car in straight-line races?

Here's Why You Don't Need To Wait For An Updated Nissan Z

Here’s Why You Don’t Need To Wait For An Updated Nissan Z

Waiting for a Nissan Z Facelift may be pointless. Here’s why

The Nissan Z finally made its official debut on 18th August 2021 and you will be able to order yours in spring 2022. With this in mind, a question you may be asking is “should I wait for the updated version?” The Nissan Z, like all other cars, will eventually receive a facelift. Although we can only guess how an updated version of the car would look like, it’s common knowledge that facelifted versions fix all (or at least some) imperfections of new models. However, this may not necessarily be the case with the Nissan Z, so is there really a need to wait a few years to get one?

The Chevy Camaro Z28 Would Have Been a Brutal, Monster of a Car

The Chevy Camaro Z28 Would Have Been a Brutal, Monster of a Car

The Camaro just isn’t as hot as it used to be, and it’s a shame because GM was cooking up something huge for the Z28 badge

When we saw the teaser of what looked like a Camaro-based Ford Mach-E competitor, we came right out and said it was time for the Chevy Camaro to die. In fact, that exact statement was based on the fact that Chevy can’t even justify the Camaro’s existence anymore. In late 2020, a new report said that Chevy was considering killing off the Camaro post-2023 when we would get a new-gen model, which was followed by news that the current model would run until 2026, making the current model some 10 years old when it will be retired. We don’t have any updates about that, but we’ve learned that previous rumors of the Camaro Z28’s cancellation are likely true, and a new report says it would have been a brutal beast.
