2021 Porsche 911 (964) By Ares Design
The Porsche 911, in all of its generations, is a legendary machine. As some would say, it has mastered the art of having the engine in “the wrong place”. The classic 911 models in particular that are the most intriguing and often subject to modernization by tuning studios. The Italian coachbuilding company Ares Design has chosen to let its creativity loose upon the 964-generation 911 Turbo, resulting in one of the most epic recreations ever. Of course, there are other studios that have their own interpretations of the 911, so what makes the Ares 964 Turbo so special?
2021 Ferrari F8 Tributo by Novitec
Novitec is the rare tuner that has mastered the art of building subtle tuning programs that aren’t really all that subtle once the package is in place. Whereas other tuners turn on the “wow” factor with obscene aerodynamic upgrades or over-the-top engine modifications — some even combine both — Novitec is perfectly happy providing all-around programs that offer the required improvements without any of the unwanted excess.
Take this new kit for the Ferrari F8 Tributo. You would think that a supercar that already packs a 720-horsepower 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged engine is powerful enough on its own. While that may be true for some, there’s nothing wrong with massaging more power out of that V-8 engine while also providing the right amount of aerodynamic improvements that leads to a more powerful and better handling ride. It takes a tuner with the kind of experience in the game like Novitec has to understand this delicate balancing act. We’ve seen it time and time again from the German tuner, and we’re seeing it now with the Ferrari F8 Tributo.
Spyker Bankruptcy - Going the Way of Faraday Future in 2021?
2021 was supposed to be the year when Spyker finally introduced the production version of the B6 Venator, a concept that it first unveiled in 2013. The Dutch were also supposed to launch the D8 Peking-to-Paris SUV. Sadly, none of that will happen as Spyker filed for bankruptcy. Again. It’s been almost six years since the Dutch company resumed operations following its first bankruptcy and Spyker no longer has the financial power to continue. But it might not be the end for the brand.
You’ve Never Seen The 2021 Toyota Supra Look This Good - Video
There are cars that are meant to be driven properly and there are cars that most often than not, act like very expensive enhancers for the driver’s ego. Just like its predecessor, the A90 Toyota Supra falls in the first category.
Nevermind BMW’s involvement in the project and those arguing the new Supra isn’t as charming as the model it replaces and not a Toyota anymore. Come sunset, the new Supra looks best with a thick layer of mud on its hips and a couple hundred more miles added to the odometer.
This 2017 Audi R8 Widebody Has $100,000 In Upgrades, Low Mileage, And It Could Be Yours
The second-generation Audi R8 is already six years old as of 2021, but it’s still a cool and powerful sports car. But if you’re among enthusiasts who view the Audi as a softer version of the Lamborghini Huracan, this widebody and supercharged R8 might change your mind. It has $100,000 in upgrades yet it’s notably more affordable than a Huracan.
This Electric Porsche 935 Moby Dick Is Going Into Production
The iconic Porsche 935, first unveiled in 1976, made a comeback in 2019, when the German carmaker built a modern version based on the 991-generation GT2 RS. Only 77 were built and sold like hot cakes. Come 2021 and Bisimoto Engineering is working on its own tribute to the iconic 935, this time around in all-electric format and a slightly more modern design. It’s called Moby X, a reference to the old 935/78 nicknamed Moby Dick for its longtail design.
This GM Design Gives Us Hope For The Future of Performance Cars
These two designs, rendered by Jingxu Zhan, are examples of what the future could look like for General Motors’ performance car lineup. Considering the nature of these futuristic designs and the two most recognizable performance cars under the GM umbrella, it’s entirely possible that Jingxu Zhan could be giving all of us a sneak peek of the future Chevrolet Corvette and Chevrolet Camaro. Raise your hands if you’re intrigued.
2021 Lexus LC 500 Inspiration
The 2021 Lexus LC 500 Inspiration is a special edition sports coupé that doesn’t give you much of a choice in terms of available colors. It’s only available in black, and it’s dripping in black from nose to tail. We didn’t know Lexus was capable of making the LC 500 look cooler than it already is, but here we are. The 2021 Lexus LC 500 Inspiration is the embodiment of stealthy aggression, and we’re all for it.
If You’re Upset About The Ford Mustang Mach-E, Just Wait Until You See What Chevy Does With the Corvette
When Ford announced that its first electric crossover will be called the Mustang Mach-E, die-hard Mustang fans lost it and started complaining about how FoMoCo diluted the iconic nameplate. If you’re a Chevy Corvette fan, get ready to see your beloved badge on an electric crossover too, because GM is reportedly considering an all-electric Corvette SUV. A new report says that GM already "has designers working on several Corvette-brand concept vehicles" and that a Corvette crossover could go on sale as early as 2025.
Explained: Subaru BRZ’s 2.4-Liter Engine and Why It Doesn’t Need a Turbo
A lot’s been made of the new Subaru BRZ and its naturally aspirated 2.4-liter four-cylinder boxer engine. The good news that came with the bigger engine — the first-gen BRZ was powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine — was that it came with 23 more horsepower and 28 more pound-feet of torque. For power-starved fans of the BRZ, the new Subie’s output of 228 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque was a step in the right direction. Unfortunately, there is a caveat to the second-generation BRZ’s boxer engine. It’s still naturally aspirated, effectively squashing any and all dreams of seeing a turbocharged BRZ.
The Japanese automaker already explained that a turbocharged engine would come with a lot of complications, but for those who remain skeptical of Subie’s reasoning, this episode of Engineering Explained is must-see YouTube viewing. Host Jason Fenske is known for his deep dives on anything and everything related to automotive engineering. All the numbers might make your head spin as it did ours, but if you’re interested in understanding why the second-generation Subaru BRZ does not need a turbocharger, take some time out of your schedule and watch Fenske explain it in a way that we can (sort of) understand.

The New Manual M4 Is Heavier, And We Blame That Ungodly Grille
When it’s not concocting videos of synthetically added Lamborghini V-10 sounds to its M2 sports car, BMW is hard at work educating the public on the new M3 and M4 performance brothers.

2022 Mercedes AMG SL63
The next-generation Mercedes AMG SL63 has repeatedly been spotted out testing. The car is slowly being unveiled, as now it has even less camouflage than before. Compared to models like the SLS AMG and its successor, the AMG GT, it was always a bit on the softer side in terms of the overall driver characteristics. However, things might change with this new generation, as it is the first SL, developed by AMG. What will this mean for the SL’s current target group?

Honda Will Electrify Its Entire Euro Lineup in 2022 - Here’s What That Means For The Civic Type R
That car the industry is slowly but steadily shifting to electrified powertrains is not a novel trend anymore. Almost every echelon, from the budget-friendly sub-compact to the alien-looking supercar is getting either a hybrid or an out-and-out EV these days.
Honda, for example, wants to field a fully electrified lineup - made of hybrids and EVs - by 2022 in Europe, as emissions standards are becoming more and more strict. This, however, won’t affect the incoming Civic Type R, which is good. For now. At the same time, the new Type R might become the last Honda to feature a pure-gasoline powertrain.
