New Rendering Envisions a Real-Life Need For Speed Toyota Supra

New Rendering Envisions a Real-Life Need For Speed Toyota Supra

Love it or hate it, you still can’t take your eyes away from it

The 2019 SEMA Auto Show hosted no less than five different Toyota Supra concepts. None of them, though, can compete with the audacity of this custom rendering of a tricked-out Toyota Supra created by Ambielec Design.

Inspired by the Need For Speed: Heat video game that was launched earlier this month, this Supra rendering wears what is arguably the wildest wide-body kit we’ve seen on the returning Japanese sports coupe. It’s modified to an extent that the only two possible reactions to this rendering are to either love it or hate it. We’re still not sure where we are on that scale.

The Interior of This Porsche 993 "Greenwich" By Gunther Werks is the Epitome of Perfection

The Interior of This Porsche 993 "Greenwich" By Gunther Werks is the Epitome of Perfection

Gunther Werks stole our hearts with the beastly 400R and they’re doing it again with this gem

Gunther Werks is back at it again. The crew that brought us the limited-edition $525,000 400R is working on another 993 model dubbed the Greenwich Commission. It’s not fully revealed yet, but Gunther Werks isn’t shying away from bumping our heart rates with a set of interior pictures.

Yes, we’re drooling. But as awesome as it might be, we expect the Greenwich Commission’s interior to be backed up by an exterior and an engine that are least on par when it comes to divine attention to detail and exquisite craftsmanship. Could that be just enough to give Singer a run for its money?

2020 BMW M3

2020 BMW M3

Extra power, less weight, and more Bimmerness than ever before

The BMW M3 has been around for a while now, first entering production in 1985 as a high-powered go-faster variant of the ever-popular BMW 3 Series. The latest F80 generation dropped in 2014, essentially setting the benchmark for all other fast four-doors to match, and now, there’s a new generation in the making. Dubbed internally as the G80, the next M3 is shaping up to be quite the ultimate driving machine, so we gathered up all the rumors we could find and put ‘em right here in the following speculative review.

Update 11/14/2019: The BMW M3 was caught out on a fall drive with new headlights and a revised decklid.

The 2020 Audi S8 Comes to Take Control From the Mercedes S600 and BMW M760i

The 2020 Audi S8 Comes to Take Control From the Mercedes S600 and BMW M760i

It’s not as powerful as the old S8 Plus, but it’s pretty damn quick.

The highly-anticipated 2020 Audi S8, the range-topping trim of the full-size sedan, debuted today with sporty styling and more power than expected. Based on the fourth-generation A8 that debuted in 2018, the 2020 S8 is a slightly sportier version of the standard model design-wise. However, the "S" badge comes with notable changes under the hood, where a twin-turbo V-8 engine spins to the tune of 571 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. Is it better than its predecessor? Let’s find out!

The 2020 Audi S8 Is Kind of a Supercar with Four Doors

The 2020 Audi S8 Is Kind of a Supercar with Four Doors

You won’t think that it’s fast until it leaves you eating your own dust

The 2020 Audi S8 has arrived, and it is a monster. There are no two ways about it. We all know what the S8 brings to the table as far as luxury credentials are concerned. But the not-so-little secret about the S8 is that it’s also fast and powerful. Audi claims that the S8’s 571-horsepower 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds. That’s an impressive number, but a test run conducted by Auditography revealed Audi’s claimed acceleration time may not be that accurate. In other words, either Audi’s being a bit cheeky or the S8 is actually faster than the company that made it expected it to be.

The Ferrari Roma Is a Callback to the Past and a Look Into the Future

The Ferrari Roma Is a Callback to the Past and a Look Into the Future

This is the fifth all-new Ferrari that has been unveiled this year

Ferrari’s run of new model releases in 2019 now includes the Roma, a two-seater supercar that pays tribute to the Italian automaker’s roots while also showcasing a new interior layout that could lay the foundation on what future Ferraris could look like — at least as far as interiors go — in the future.

The Roma joins the F8 Tributo, F8 Tributo Spider, 812 GTS, and SF90 Stradale as all-new Ferraris that the Italian automaker unveiled this year. It is fitting that what could be the last of this new model assault is the one that bridges the past with the future. Ferrari hasn’t revealed the price and availability of its new supercar, but expect more details to arrive soon.

You Can Now Buy a Painfully Accurate 1:18 Scale Diecast Model of the 2021 Tesla Roadster

You Can Now Buy a Painfully Accurate 1:18 Scale Diecast Model of the 2021 Tesla Roadster

Can’t afford the real thing? This scale model is only $250

The Tesla Roadster is one of the most anticipated vehicles for 2020. Not because the American firm is reviving the nameplate, but because the Roadster 2.0 promises outstanding performance, like more than 7,000 pound-feet of torque, a 0-to-60 mph sprint of 1.9 seconds, and a top speed of more than 250 mph. But all these spectacular figures will come at a cost - an estimated $250,000. Obviously not many will be able to afford the Roadster 2.0, but now you can buy a scale model for just 0.1-percent of the price.

2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera By Wheelsandmore

2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera By Wheelsandmore

Does an Aston Martin DBS Superleggera with almost 900 horsepower sound enticing to you?

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is the beneficiary of a significant aftermarket program from noted tuner Wheelsandmore. The tuner’s latest enterprise comprises two separate software updates to the DBS Superleggera’s 5.2-liter V-12 engine. The more significant of these two updates elevates the V-12’s output to levels you didn’t expect from the already potent DBS Superleggera. Aston’s resident thrill seeker is already a handful on its own, but with Wheelsandmore’s new software upgrades, there’s a case to be made that you should hold on for dear life when you’re riding shotgun in this supercar.

Is the Ford Capri Coming Back as the Mini Ford GT We All Deserve?

Is the Ford Capri Coming Back as the Mini Ford GT We All Deserve?

Ford actually has everything it needs to bring back the Capri but the design - we’re pretty sure it can cover that easily enough, though

Ford has brought back the Bronco and Puma name, and let’s not forget about the revival of the Ford GT, so what’s next on the Blue Oval’s plate? Well, word has it that there could be a revival of the Capri name, and we’re thinking it could be a smaller sports car that would fill the gap between the Mustang and the Ford GT – a BIG gap, I know – and it could even take on the likes of cars like the Jaguar F-Type, Porsche 718, or the Audi TT.

Maserati Just Confirmed a Debut for May 2020 – Is It the new Alfieri Sports Car?

Maserati Just Confirmed a Debut for May 2020 – Is It the new Alfieri Sports Car?

The Alfieri was previously expected for 2020, so this teaser is almost as good as confirmation

A new teaser hints that the Maserati Alfieri will make its debut in May of 2020 – amazing news when you consider the fact that some FCA Companies (like Alfa Romeo) are in turmoil and subject to serious cutbacks. Fortunately, this teaser not only proves that Maserati’s roadmap to 2023 is still intact, but also that the company is right on plan to deliver that “all-new Sportscar” sometime in 2020. Here’s why this teaser is a confirmation that the new Alfieri is finally coming.

Carfection Just Used an Apple iPhone 11 to Record a Video Review of the Ford Mustang Bullitt

Carfection Just Used an Apple iPhone 11 to Record a Video Review of the Ford Mustang Bullitt

Can an Apple iPhone rise up to the video quality standards imposed by Carfection?

Those gearheads keeping close tabs on YouTube’s top car-related content producers know that Carfection has become a benchmark when it comes to the amount of quality baked into their videos. So when CNET launched the challenge to shoot an entire car review on an iPhone 11 Pro, Carfection was happy to accept it.

The idea that smartphones have evolved to such technological heights that they can now replace specialized hardware such as professional cameras has been floating around for some time. Photographers and videographers have, on several occasions, shown that it’s more about HOW you use skill and creativity, the available surroundings, and lighting conditions than WHAT you actually use. Enter Carfection’s review of the Ford Mustang Bullitt, shot entirely on an iPhone 11 Pro - not without a few struggles, though.

2019 Maserati Gran Turismo Zeda

2019 Maserati Gran Turismo Zeda

Italian automaker creates one-off piece to celebrate the GranTurismo’s production run

Maserati is ending production of the current-generation GranTurismo by rolling out the GranTurismo Zeda, a one-off creation that commemorates the model’s more-than-a-decade-long run in the market. The Maserati GranTurismo Zeda comes with a lot of exclusive touches, none more prominent than a unique paint finish that separates its aesthetics from just about every GranTurismo model that has hit the market in the last 12 years. There are currently no plans to offer the Maserati GranTurismo Zeda to the public, but a limited-production run in the future hasn’t been ruled out quite yet.

2020 Ford Mustang Jack Roush Edition by Roush Performance

2020 Ford Mustang Jack Roush Edition by Roush Performance

The ultimate Roush Mustang; more powerful than the Shelby GT500

The 2020 Ford Mustang Jack Roush Edition is a high-performance version of the sixth-generation Mustang designed by Roush Performance. Unveiled at the 2019 SEMA Show, the Jack Roush Edition is more than just another beefed-up Mustang. This special-edition model celebrates the legacy of its founder, Jack Roush, who was recently inducted in the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

Although it’s not particularly more aggressive than other Roush-made Mustangs, the Jack Roush Edition is the most powerful vehicle created by the American firm. Rated at 775 horsepower, it packs more punch than iconic Mustang nameplates like the Shelby GT500 and the Shelby Super Snake. Let’s find out more about this powerful beast in the review below.

The Next-Gen Porsche 718 EV Could Be More Powerful than the Current Cayman GTS; Should Arrive in 2023

The Next-Gen Porsche 718 EV Could Be More Powerful than the Current Cayman GTS; Should Arrive in 2023

How does an electric Porsche 718 with Cayman GT4 levels of power sound?

Nobody has officially confirmed that the next-generation 2023 Porsche 718 Cayman and Boxster will be electric or even hybrid, but a new report is saying that they could have 400 horsepower, a figure that will put them well ahead of the current Cayman GTS and pretty damn close to the 414-horsepower Cayman GT4.

2020 Nissan Global Time Attack TT 370Z

2020 Nissan Global Time Attack TT 370Z

There’ve been many 370Z race cars throughout the years but this is one of the baddest of the bunch

Nissan unveiled a Time Attack-spec Nissan 370Z built by Z1 Motorsport in conjunction with Nissan Motorsport that is bound to take the world of time attack racing by storm. With 750 horsepower on tap thanks to a pair of Garrett turbochargers, this 370Z is one of the craziest you’ll ever see. The widebody is made entirely out of carbon fiber, the interior is bare, and, to shed even more weight, the body was acid-dipped. In other words, the guys at Nissan and Z1 Motorsport stopped at nothing in their mission to turn what many consider an outdated sports car into a record-breaking track beast.

The Lotus Elan Could Come Back, and It'll Take the Porsche 718 Boxster Head On

The Lotus Elan Could Come Back, and It’ll Take the Porsche 718 Boxster Head On

It won’t arrive sooner than 2021 though

The iconic Lotus Elan could return to the market after nearly three decades. The British company is reportedly considering a revival of the nameplate for a brand-new drop-top sports car that will slot above the Elise in the lineup. The revival won’t happen until 2021 though, as that is when Lotus will have the proper platform for such a car.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

Wallpaper of the Day: 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

The 4C Spider is officially on its last leg, so why not show it one last bit of love?

Now that FCA has finally killed off the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, it has managed to find its way back into our hearts again. Okay, maybe not, but at the same time, we’re still kind of sad to see it go. We can’t help but wonder if it would have met the same fate had Alfa Romeo actually had the money and desire to even so much as give the 4C a mild facelift or any type of update at al throughout its entire lifespan. It just doesn’t seem like the proper end to a model that reintroduced Alfa Romeo to the U.S. market, now does it?

Of course, with the 4C delivering just 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque and no funds available to make any type of improvement, the 4C became largely obsolete and too expensive (for its capability) to even compete on the market anymore. So, with the 4C officially at the end of its life, we thought what a better way to send it off than to let it live on in our rotation of daily wallpapers. We’ve picked out our favorite and posted it below, but you can slide on down the page to find a rather large gallery with any 4C wallpaper you could ever want or desire.

If You Missed Out on the Audi R8 RWS but Still Want a RWD R8, We've Got Good News For You

If You Missed Out on the Audi R8 RWS but Still Want a RWD R8, We’ve Got Good News For You

This Audi R8 V10 RWD isn’t a limited-edition model, either!

Right before Audi facelifted the second-gen R8 for 2019, it released the Audi R8 V10 RWS, which was, essentially, a RWD version of the V-10 R8. The model was limited to just 999 examples, though, leaving anyone who wanted a RWD R8 left holding an empty bag. All that has changed now, though, as Audi as finally launched a new RWD version of the R8 with a V-10, and it looks even better than the RWS since it’s being introduced post-facelift. Even better yet, this baby isn’t production limited, so you might actually stand a chance at getting one. It’s not all peaches and cream, though, and there are a couple of things that you need to know.

Watch the Genovation GXE Electric Corvette Hit a New Top Speed

Watch the Genovation GXE Electric Corvette Hit a New Top Speed

It’s fastest than all production Corvettes except for the C7 ZR1!

An all-electric Chevrolet Corvette might have seemed like an odd idea a decade ago, but it’s an acceptable thought in 2019. That’s because Chevy already announced plans to electrify the Corvette but, more importantly, it’s because some companies actually converted existing Corvettes to accept EV drivetrains. Genovation is one of the companies, and its modified C7 Corvette is capable of top speeds in excess of 200 mph. Specifically, the GXE just hit a top speed of 210 mph, a benchmark that many sports cars and even some supercars can only dream of.

2020 Hennessey Resurrection ZL1 1LE Camaro

2020 Hennessey Resurrection ZL1 1LE Camaro

As if the Exorcist wasn’t enough, Hennessey’s back with an even more powerful take on the Chevrolet Camaro

John Hennessey is bringing some divine power to the 2019 SEMA Auto Show. The model is called the Hennessey Resurrection, but don’t confuse the perceived grace attached to its name. The Resurrection is a super-limited, take-no-prisoners, 1,200 horsepower Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 that can lay waste to any ill-fated automotive soul that gets in its way. Hennessey only plans to build 24 units of the Resurrection with each model priced at around $200,000. That’s right. If you want to be showered by the grace of the Resurrection, you need to pay up some serious cash for the opportunity. This is why it’s worth every penny.

The 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S Gets a Big Bump in Power and Weight, But What Does it Mean?

You can learn a lot when you ride in a car that isn’t on the market yet!

The 992-generation Porsche 911 is already on sale globally, but only in non-Turbo trim. The range-topping Turbo and Turbo S have yet to be launched, and it seems we have to wait until 2020 to have access to them. However, the folks over at Car and Driver managed to ride in a Turbo S and found out important bits of info on the rear-engined sports car. For starters, we know it will generate 641 horsepower, but will it be quicker than the old model? Let’s find out.

2020 Toyota GR Supra Heritage Edition

2020 Toyota GR Supra Heritage Edition

Toyota pays tribute to the long-standing relationship between the Supra and the aftermarket tuning world

The Toyota Supra has arrived at the 2019 SEMA Auto Show, and in true form, we’re not just talking about one Supra at SEMA. Nope. There are multiple Supras in attendance at SEMA, each wearing a different alter-ego. One of these models is called the Supra Heritage Edition. It’s the most subtle of the Supras in SEMA, but it’s also the one that we identify with the most. Part of the Supra Heritage Edition’s appeal is its connection to the aftermarket tuning world. Toyota created it as an homage to the tuning scene, something that past versions of the Supra were all very familiar with. Granted, the Supra Heritage Edition doesn’t boast any of the over-the-top madness that past custom Supras could claim, but as a celebration of the relationship between the nameplate and the aftermarket tuning scene, the Supra Heritage Edition is as good as it gets.
