Here’s a Stunning Example of What the Aston Martin DB12 Could Look Likewise
There’s no shortage of independent designers. In fact, you could almost consider them modern-day backyard mechanics, just on a digital level. Basically, anyone with a stylus and Adobe subscription is considered an artist. There are a handful of really good artists out there, some that are more talented than most, and designer Tedoradze falls into this category. His latest piece of work is an impressive one too – it’s a rendering of a successor to the current Aston Martin DB11. Aptly called the DB12, this is what the future of Aston Martin could look like. Do you agree?
Between Godzilla and the BMW M5, This is One Action-Packed Head-to-Head Showdown
The BMW M5 and the Nissan GT-R are two cars that you don’t want to race against. Racing them against each other, though, is an entirely different story. You can argue that the M5 and the GT-R are two of the best performance cars on the market, and when there’s an opportunity to see which of these two savants has the performance edge over the other, you take that opportunity and you run away with it.
That’s exactly what Bulgaria-based YouTube channel DizzyRiders did when it put the M5 against Godzilla in a series of head-to-head races. Which of the two reigned supreme? We won’t divulge the results here, but you should know that both the M5 and GT-R showed out.
Chevy is Reportedly Canceling Some Dealer Allocations of the 2020 C8 Corvette – But It’s Not What You Think
A video posted by Chevy Dude, a Youtuber and Chevy Salesman that tends to get a lot of insider information, has brought forth news that Chevy is revoking or canceling C8 Corvette allocations to dealers nationwide. The amount of allocations is said to be somewhere in the neighborhood of 15-20 percent. Right off the bat, this sounds troubling, especially if you’ve placed an order, but it’s not as cut and dry as it sounds.
You’re More Than Likely Assured an "L" If You Decide to Race This Dodge Viper
Dodge Vipers are famous for being fast; the most recent iteration of the American sports car featured an 8.4-liter V-10 engine that produced 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque and it was able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 208 mph. But as fast as the Viper was before it was retired, nothing can prepare you for this Viper. This refers to a heavily modified 2006 Dodge Viper that recently set the record for the fastest recorded speed in a Viper when it clocked a mind-bending top speed run that maxed out at 252 mph. The record was set at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds in West Palm Beach, Florida. The 252-mph run was far and away the fastest a Dodge Viper has gone. Best of all, the Viper that did it is actually street legal.
Tuner Gintani Motor Works has Created the First Twin-Turbo Porsche 911 GT3 RS and It Sounds Amazing
We don’t have a lot to tell you or show you yet, but Gintani Motor Works has created one hell of a beast out of a Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The company does offer an ECU tuning kit GT3 and GT3 RS, but it’s limited to a 25-horsepower and 15 pound-feet increase in power output, but this is an entirely different animal. The tuning company has managed to do what nobody thought would ever be done – it’s created the world’s first twin-turbo Porsche 911 GT3 RS! Right now, we only have a couple of short videos to go by, but based on the sound of the car alone, this thing is out of this world.
The C8 Corvette Z06 Is Taking Aim at the Porsche 911 GT2 RS on the Track!
If you’re about tired of hearing news about the 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette, well, this is only the beginning. We still have, at the very least, the C8 Corvette ZR1 and the C8 Corvette Z06, the latter of which is set to make its debut next and was just spotted sitting next to a 991-gen Porsche 911 GT2 RS – the proverbial best of the best on the track. What does this mean for the Corvette Z06?
A BMW Rival For the Porsche 911 "Would Be a Nice Idea"
Do you know how fashion is a cyclic affair? What was trendy some decades ago comes back to the highest peaks of popularity? Well, in the car industry, this sort of thing sometimes happens for old reports.
Take the one claiming that BMW is looking to build a rival for the Porsche 911. It was floated on the Internet back in 2016, together with the info that the 6 Series will be phased out to make room for the new 8 Series. So far, only the 6 Series-8 Series swap found fruition, but we’re getting some signals that a BMW-badged rival for the 911 isn’t something Munich will vote against.
Reports Indicate That a 600+ Horsepower Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA is in the Works, Rumors Quickly Denied
A new rumor has surfaced that Alfa Romeo is looking to celebrate its 110th anniversary by introducing a new, limited trim level of the Giulia – namely the Giulia GTA. Reports hint that it will be a track-inspired, road-going beast with as much as 620 horsepower and a considerable increase in torque output compared to the 443 pound-feet delivered by the standard, Ferrari-derived 2.9-liter V-6 in the Giulia Guadrifoglio. It was even said that this model would debut in June of 2020. Unfortunately, this latest rumor doesn’t seem to hold water.
Decade-Old Hyperion Finally Has a Hydrogen-Powered Prototype Ready to Debut
Do you happen to remember the energy company “Hyperion?” It’s not surprising if you don’t – the company was founded back in 2011 and mysteriously showed up on our radar back in 2015 when it released a darkened teaser for a very odd-looking car. Since then, the company has been largely silent since this time last year when more images started popping up on social media, just for the account to go silent once again (you can see all the images below.) Now, the company is back with yet another mysterious teaser, one that appears to show a revised car and the promise of a world premiere happening soon. Just what in the world is going on here?

New Details About the 2021 Chevy C8 Corvette Z06 Hint at a Massive Wing, Track-Focused Performance
Chevy has been quite busy since it debuted the 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray, and has introduced both the convertible and the C8.R in the short period that has passed. We’re still waiting on the ZR1, the first AWD Corvette, a couple of hybrid models (which could include the Zora ZR1, and the C8 Corvette Z06. We’re expecting the Z06 to be the next debut on the list, and now we’ve learned a little more about it, including the fact that it will feature a massive rear wing akin to that of the C8.R with one...eh… minor change.
Tesla Model 3 Versus Porsche 911 Carrera S Makes For a Very Tight Affair
While the Tesla Model S has its hands full dealing with the all-electric Porsche Taycan (not when it comes to range, though), the Model 3 has been pitted against the 2020 Porsche 911 by the fellas over at Carwow.
We know, we know, and they do too, these two are not exactly direct rivals and the differences between them aren’t only related to how they generate power and torque. The 911 is rear-wheel-driven, while the Model 3 spins all four wheels. The EV is also a tad more powerful and quicker off the line, but the Neunelfer packs a mean Launch Control feature and is, after all, a purely-bred sports car.
The First Dodge Viper Ever Produced Just Sold for $285,500
The Dodge Viper came in a time when Chrysler was associated with people carriers and compact front-wheel drive cars. It was first shown in concept guise back in January 1989 after just one year under development and the first customers got their Vipers in the early months of 1992. The rest, as they say, is history.
Also history - of the living ilk - is this particular red-painted Dodge Viper, for two reasons: it’s the very first to leave the assembly line and it had one owner throughout its entire life. That owner is Lee Iacocca, who sadly passed away on July the 2nd, 2019.
Get Ready For a Retro-Styled, V-6, Manual Nissan Z Car
2020 is supposedly the year that will bring us a replacement for the aging Nissan 370Z. We know for a thing that a cabriolet version won’t be offered, and previous reports talked about 400Z as a potential name for the new model.
The latest word on the upcoming new Nissan Z car is that it will flaunt reinterpreted retro styling cues, as Nissan’s designers ‘are going back to the roots of the car.’
