This 1,400-Horsepower Dodge Demon Can Run 8-Second Quarter Miles
The Demon is one scorcher of a muscle car, running the quarter mile in an incredible 9.65 seconds at 140 mph right out of the box. But, as is often the case, some folks always want more, and thus we have this tuned carbon fiber example that adds more power and slashes the quarter run into the 8’s.
Modern Porsche 935 attacks Monza Circuit
Porsche’s year-long anniversary party turned up an unexpected guest in the Porsche 935. The Stuttgart-based automaker reimagined the long-tailed 70’s icon with a modern design topped off by a retro livery, showcasing it in all its glory at Laguna Seca last month. Shortly after the 935’s debut, the racer took some test runs at the Monza racetrack in Italy where it was performing some test runs ahead of its highly anticipated launch. Porsche plans to build just 77 units of the reimagined “Moby Dick,” with each model priced at $817,000.
Watch a Tesla-Powered 2006 Honda S2000 Run a 10-Second Quarter Mile
If you’re still dreaming of the Honda S2000’s amazing 100-horsepower/liter figure that was an industry benchmark in the sports car class for years, there’s now a new benchmark, at least in the S2000 world. As expected, it’s highly modified but in an unusual way: it sports the drivetrain from a Tesla Model S P100D.
Discontinued back in 2009, the S2000 remained the backbone of many modified rides over the years. This white example, nicknamed "Model S2000", is one of the raddest yet. It’s employing parts from the Tesla Model S and the Chevrolet Volt to tear up the dragstrip and seamlessly tick a quarter-mile time of 10.24 without much hassle. And that’s only the beginning.

The 2019 Porsche Cayman T Will Sit Between the Cayman S and GTS with More Power and Less Weight
After the 911 T, the Cayman T will be going under the knife. Well, not for the looks, but for weight. Reportedly, the 2019 Cayman T will be losing 44 pounds and gaining ten horses to become a faster car. These chops have happened to give the car a more focused driving experience.
I test drove the BMW M240i xDrive Convertible. The small BMW convertible showed me why I liked BMWs so much, it sparked the fire in my heart for BMWs once again, and I am not going back, ever. I love BMW, and now, finally, I definitely know why. It is for me. I am sure, if you had to chance to drive the M240i through a few bends on the mountain roads of the Gorges du Verdon canyon in France, the M240i would grow in your heart as well.
It is sublime!
I can’t even imagine what kind of a beast the M2 is. I haven’t driven it yet, but I am eagerly waiting to do so.
Ford Seeing Dollar Signs as It Extends Production of the Ford GT "to meet demand"

2019 Porsche Panamera GTS
The 2019 Porsche Panamera and the Panamera Sports Turismo get some extra pizzazz with both being offered with a GTS badge. This is not the first time Porsche has used the GTS moniker on its cars; the second-generation Panamera and the Panamera Sport Turismo have gotten the same treatment and have been quite successful. The GTS versions have always been a good bang for the buck, as you get performance specs and features that are optional on other models, without actually costing a bomb.

2019 Porsche Panamera GTS Sport Turismo
First introduced for the 2010 model year, the Porsche Panamera is now well-established as Stuttgart’s go-to four-door ‘Bahn burner. Following the introduction of a second generation in 2016, Porsche is now broadening the range with a fresh new mid-grade model, bridging the gap between the Panamera 4S and Panamera Turbo.

As such, the 2019 model year brings with it a more powerful turbocharged engine, fresh interior tech, and new standard features.
Check Out This Modern Plymouth Barracuda Rendering Based on the Dodge Challenger
Plymouth was killed off as a brand in 2001 by parent company Chrysler; a move met with dismay by many fans of the brand whose roots could be traced back to 1928. But if Plymouth were still around today, it would most likely have offered a modern, reimagined version of its Barracuda pony car that it sold from 1964 to 1974.

I Drove 1,780 Horsepower Worth Of Cars In France On Possibly The Best Tires On Earth
Continental AG invited me to spend three days in Nice, France, drive really nice cars, experience its #blackchili driving experience and gorge on vine and fish of all kinds prepared by some of the best chefs around.
I said yes.
This is what I saw, drove and experienced there.
1,780 horsepower worth of cars were parked down the alley of a hotel with a golf course. All of them were white, all of them had OEM Continental tires on them. UUHP tires, mind you. That is short for Ultra Ultra High Performance and all of them had striking, yet subtle Continental decals. Right from the get-go, it was clear this wasn’t going to be a classic journalist driving event. It was more of a celebration and a party. I liked it.
The weather was at nice 78 degrees Fahrenheit, without a single cloud on the perfectly blue sky over the Cote d’Azur. Down at that parking - 10 cars - two Mercedes-AMG C43 Cabrios, two BMW M240i xDrive Convertibles, two Porsche 718 Boxsters, two Tesla Model Ss, and two Audi RS3 Sportbacks.
FYI, the Porsche was the least powerful one there. And when the Porsche is the least powerful at a car event, things are off to a good start.
The Next-Gen Nissan Z and Nissan GT-R Will Be Electrified
There was speculation that Nissan might electrify its sports cars with their upcoming generations, and now a company official has dropped some bombs on the whole issue. By 2022, 40-percent of Nissan’s vehicles will be electrified, and that includes the Nissan Z and Nissan GT-R as well.

The 2021 BMW M2 CS\CSL Was Spotted on the Nurburging; May Enter Limited Production in March 2020
With the M2, BMW most certainly proved it is still hard into developing epic driving machines. The M2 Competition, which is like the M2 doubled, was the next step into the direction any BMW enthusiast imagined. Now, seemingly, BMW is traveling even further into the extremes with the M2. Spy photographers (guys who probably camp at the ‘Ring waiting for their next braking pep) caught yet another M2 prototype. Some say it is the 2021 BMW M2 CS - the next hardcore version scheduled to shake and stir the whole goddamn small sports car market. The one to properly tackle the likes of the Cayman, some versions of the F-Type, and the like. I am still fresh from my driving stint in the M240i, and I can’t even imagine how cool a car like the M2 CS will be.
2018 Mitsuoka Rockstar
Japanese coach builder Mitsuoka has launched a new project build called the Rock Star. The Corvette Stingray-bodied Rock Star is a Mazda MX-5 underneath a classic Americanized body. The nod towards one of the most iconic pieces of American car history is a fresh approach from a coach-building company best known for building what is arguably the world’s ugliest sports car. Compared to the positively ghastly Orochi sports car, the Rock Star is, well, a rock star that should have no problem establishing fans and groupies alike.
2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS Shock
The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro was just updated for the 2019 model year, now sporting a brand-new face that makes it more aggressive than ever. As it is always the case, Chevy began rolling out various upgrades and accessories for its popular coupe. With the 2018 SEMA Show just around the corner, Chevrolet created the Camaro Shock, an SS-based pony car that showcases a new exterior color and various accessories and concept parts.
Finished in Shock Yellow, hence the Camaro Shock name, this production-ready concept is packed with accessories and performance parts created by the same designers and engineers responsible for the Camaro itself, for seamless integration. While some are already available, other parts will hit the market later this year and in 2019. As usual, you can shop online for the parts on Chevrolet’s website and choose to have them delivered either at home or at a dealer delivery. You can also choose to install them yourself or have them fitted by professionals at a Chevy dealership. Let’s see what’s new.

Superformance Has Crammed EcoBoost into a Ford GT40 MK1 for the SEMA Auto Show
Supercar shapes from the sixties don’t get much more recognizable than the classic Ford GT40 which was a ridiculously fast car back in the day - now one example is being substantially modified and upgraded with a brand new twin-turbo engine and other go-faster parts.
