2019 Ferrari 488 Pista Spider
The Ferrari 488 Pista Spider joined the 488 lineup at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as a replacement for the 458 Speciale Aperta. The Ferrari 488 Pista replaced the iconic 458 Speciale, and it’s the first of its kind to hide a turbocharged engine under the hood.
Just when we thought that Ferrari settled for the Aperta name for its convertible sports car, Maranello returned to using the old Spider badge. But this is arguably a small issue here, as the Pista Aperta is just as exciting as its coupe sibling, but with extra headroom when the top is removed. The 50th drop-top model built by Ferrari since 1947, the Pista Spider made its global debut in the United States, where convertible sports cars are more popular than everywhere else in the world. Let’s have a closer look at the latest member of the 488 family in the review below..

This 1998 Subaru Imprezza 22B STi Is As Pristine As It Is Rare
Auction sites like bringatrailer.com are the perfect places to look at if you are looking for unusual or rare vehicles. That is exactly the case with this 1998 Subaru Impreza 22B STI, which has 40,000 km (24,855 miles) on the clock. Japanese sports cars from the 1990s are becoming increasingly sought-after, especially those that were never sold in the US and have to be 25 years old. The Skyline R34 GTR and Supra A80 Turbo are already six-figure cars. The 22B STI is right up there with them, and for good reason.
Will You Forgive GM for the Crap Quality of the C8 Corvette if the C9 Looks Like this?
Chevrolet got the performance right for its first-ever mid-engine production car but in doing so, it kind of missed the whole point of what a well-made interior should look and feel like. But what if the carmaker came up with a next-generation C9 that had a more European flavor and looked like Leyang Bai’s design study?
Porsche Spent 3,100 Miles At Full Throttle Trying to Make The New 911 GT3 Fail
Today’s sports cars and race cars are a lot more reliable than those of the previous decade. In part, this is due to advances in technology and assembly techniques, but carmakers are also more poised on torturing their cars before they finally release them on the market. Case in point: Porsche and the grueling reliability tests that the new 911 GT3 had to endure.
After seeing This Rendering, Toyota Definitely Needs to Build a GR 86 Shooting Brake
We recently covered a rendering, which gave us an idea of how a Toyota GR86 Convertible could look like. Now, the Hungarian virtual design studio – X-Tomi Design – is giving us another great idea. They’ve taken the Toyota GR86 and decided to make a shooting break out of it. We have to admit, the results are quite good. The Shooting brake concept is a very old one. It dates back to the 1800s and the first shooting brake cars were manufactured in Britain.

Can The Lamborghini Urus Stand Up Against The Likes Of The Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat and The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk?
The sight of seeing SUVs rocket down a quarter-mile in a little over 10 seconds is exhilarating. Automakers have realized that people love performance SUVs and it could rake in big numbers for them. Take the Urus for instance. It has been the company’s best-seller since its launch. Even Dodge decided to let all hell break loose by throwing in a supercharged engine under its family SUV’s hood. Throw the Jeep Trackhawk in the mix and you have three of the best performance SUVs that money can buy today.
The folks at Throttle House brought them all together on a drag strip for some straight-line battles. The Urus has obliterated competition mercilessly so far, but can it reign over the mighty powerful FCA....I mean Stellantis twins?
This Shootout Between the BMW M4 and Porsche Cayman GT4 is Epic
This 2022 Toyota GR86 Convertible Is Strangely Attractive
The Toyota GR86 is certainly one of the more pleasant surprises in the automotive world. In times when cars are becoming bigger, heavier, and much more complex, car enthusiasts begged for a car that’s simple, sporty, and relatively attainable. That being said, the Toyota GR86 may be available as both a Toyota and a Subaru product, but it only comes in coupe form. Although we definitely don’t mind that, some of us have wondered how a convertible version would look like.
The Lamborghini Aventador’s Successor Might Have An Electrified V12!
With a decade on the market and God knows how many special editions and versions, the Lamborghini Aventador will soon be sent into the history books. That, however, won’t happen until Lamborghini comes up with a hybrid powertrain that will allow natural aspiration to live on for the company’s V-12 without conflicting with the ever-stricter emission regulations.
See the C8 Chevy Corvette in An All-New Light in Vice City Vette
The Chevrolet Corvette C8 is one of the most talked-about cars in recent times. The hype still continues, despite the car being on sale for some time now. The Corvette has always been a stylish car, and although it’s mostly praised for its performance capabilities, it can also double as a cruiser, especially with the Targa roof. With this in mind, the C8 Corvette is definitely a car to have if you find yourself in the City of Miami, and the YouTube channel SchwaaFilms, which specializes in epic automotive content, has come up with an interesting way to demonstrate this.
Is This The Perfect Spec Lexus LFA?
The Lexus LFA arrived back in 2010 with specs that made it one of the strongest cars in the segment. The company built only 500 examples of the same and that would’ve made it a collector’s item in the future. You would expect it to sell like hotcakes, but surprisingly, 11 years later there are still a few copies that remain unsold.
This shouldn’t be a testament to the fact that the LFA is a hot sports car and deserves to be remembered as one of the best cars to have come from the Japanese automaker, and this video by Supercar Driver shows us exactly that.

Jerry Seinfeld’s Porsche 911 GT3 RS Is Probably the Most Optioned 911 You’ve Ever Seen
This is Probably What the New BMW 8 Series Should Have Looked Like
By this moment in time, we’ve seen the retro-futuristic design in many incarnations. We’ve seen the American trio – Mustang, Camaro, Challenger, the Alpine A110, and now the soon-to-arrive Nissan 400Z. They all harken back to their originals from the 1960s and 1970s. That said, a design from the 1980s is a bit trickier to reinterpret. TheSketchMonkey has decided to take the challenge and gives us his take on what the current BMW 8 Series would look like. His YouTube channel has been around for a while and this is just one of the graphic designer’s many projects.
