Ford Everest by TTN Hypersport - the Ford F-150 Raptor SUV That Should Have Been
Aftermarket companies are the guilty pleasure of any customization aficionado. Whether it is a power boost or an aesthetic upgrade, these companies do the most unthinkable things and sometimes make us wonder how good the product would be as a factory-made model.
The latest example of this is a build by TTN Hypersport, a custom shop in Thailand. TTN has dared to rebuild the Ford Everest into a wild vehicle that essentially looks like an F-150 Raptor SUV. Ford, can we expect something like this in the future?
10 Cars With the Best Power Output Per Liter
Back in the day, if you wanted more power, you had to have an engine with a big volumetric capacity. Take, for instance, Malcolm Campbell’s Campbell-Napier-Railton Blue Bird record-breaking car of 1931 that was a 25-foot-long behemoth powered by a 23.9-liter airplane engine developing 1,450 horsepower.
Nowadays, however, with the advent of turbocharging as well as other clever mechanical solutions, we no longer need engines the size of a bedroom to get the oomph we want. Point in case? Each and every car on this list.

Among a host of other impressive features, there’s something that the purists and camping aficionados would appreciate – the removable doors and roof.

2020 Mercedes GLE Sports Line Coupe by Wald International
The 2016-2019MY Mercedes GLE Coupe was a standout ride. Taking its roots from the GLE family that was born from the remnants of the departed ML-Class, the GLE Coupe looked the part of a proper coupe-SUV. Sadly, it didn’t perform like one, though that’s partly attributed to the presence of its AMG alter-egos: the GLE 63 Coupe and the GLE 63 S Coupe.
Still, the GLE Coupe remains a darling among Mercedes fans, crossover and SUV enthusiasts, and, in this case, aftermarket tuners. Ward International took a stab at creating an aftermarket package for the flashy Mercedes coupe-SUV, one that includes aesthetic improvements, performance upgrades, and, a flashy set of new wheels to boot. In other words, it’s a typical “Black Bison” project from the same tuner that gave birth to the name. The only caveat is that this isn’t a Black Bison kit; Wald instead calls it the Sports Line.
The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is the Bronco’s Not-So-Rugged Little Brother
Ford just took the off-road SUV market by storm with the Bronco, reviving the iconic nameplate after almost 25 years. Although it captured all the hype, the Bronco isn’t the only SUV that Ford introduced today. It also launched the Bronco Sport, a slightly smaller crossover aimed at vehicles that aren’t as rugged as the Jeep Wrangler. The Bronco Sport also boasts vintage styling cues inspired by the original Bronco, but it looks decidedly more modern. The Bronco Sport is based on the Escape, but it’s more capable off the beaten path, and it looks better. Let’s find out more about it below.
Now You’ve Seen it All - A Saturn Sky With a 2JZ Engine Swap
It was in the mid 2000s when GM put its Kappa platform to work underneath what would become the Saturn Sky/Pontiac Solstice. Also known as the Opel GT in Europe, the Saturn Sky was rater short-lived, staying in production for just three years, during which it failed to make a splash.
There is one Saturn Sky, however, that lives on lavishly courtesy of his owner, who shoehorned a 2JZ engine under the hood.
Does the 2021 Ford Bronco Have a Manual Transmission?
After a 24-year hiatus, the Bronco moniker has returned to the auto scene and has everyone’s attention. The off-roader comes with retro styling and cues, much to the please of the purists. However, one other thing that made the Bronco exciting was the prospect of a manual gearbox mated to the drivetrain. The initial leaks had suggested the presence of a seven-speed manual transmission, and now that the Bronco has made its debut, the same is confirmed - as long as you don’t go with the Bronco Sport, which is only available with an automatic transmission.
The all-new Bronco (the boxy one) will be offered with a choice of two transmissions – a seven-speed manual gearbox and a 10-speed automatic gearbox.

10 Classic Ferrari Cars That You Probably Forgot About
Ferrari has been building supercars and sports cars for more than 70 years now and, needless to say, many of them are downright legendary. But not every vehicle with a Ferrari badge is iconic. Enzo’s company had its fair share of flops, while some were built in very limited numbers and were simply forgotten over time. Others are nowhere to be found and some simply don’t get the love they deserve. Here’s a a list of 10 classic Ferraris that you probably forgot about
A BMW M3-Powered Toyota Supra GRMN Is in the Works, But There’s a Catch
With the 2020 Toyota Supra being based so heavily on the BMW Z4, you can imagine that it had a very strong offering of aftermarket options by the time it launched. After all, just about anything that will mechanically improve the Z4 will improve the Supra too, right? Well, imagine for a moment, if you will, an A90 Toyota Supra with the S58 engine that’s found in the X3 and X4 M and the upcoming next-gen M3 and M4. That would make the Toyota Supra one powerful beast and force to be reckoned with. The best part? A new report straight out of Japan says it’s going to happen. That special Supra will be known as the Supra GRMN, and it’s going to be outlandishly rare.
The Subaru Impreza 22B is THE Legend Among Legends
Launched in 1992, the Impreza quickly became Subaru’s most iconic nameplate. Although it’s an affordable compact at the core, the Impreza became famous for WRX versions and the rally-inspired WRX STi. But even though the STi is known as the most radical variant of the Impreza, being built with technology from rally racing, Subaru once offered an even more menacing variant.
It’s called the 22B STi and it was produced for only five months in 1998 to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary as well as its third consecutive title in the FIA World Rally Championship.
The New Porsche 911 GT2 RS Could Have 720 HP Or More Thanks to 3D Printed Pistons
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is a beast of a car that, as of today, delivers a cool 700 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque from a twin-turbo, 3.8-liter, flat-six. It’s fast enough to get to 60 mph in a spleen splitting 2.7 seconds and tops out a respectable 211 mph. Those numbers represent an improvement of 0.8 seconds and six mph over the model it replaced. One could argue, then, that the next-gen 911 GT2 RS doesn’t need more power, but Porsche simply wouldn’t agree. This time, however, extra power and better performance aren’t coming from bigger turbos and more most. No, this time it comes, at least in part, thanks to 3D printed pistons.
Here’s How a 2013 Audi RS5 Stacks Up Against a 2020 Audi RS5 Sportback
Audi RS5Bridging the generation gap between two performance-focused models, one that’s older and one that’s newer, is never an easy task for carmakers. The newcomer is expected to be better in every aspect, but what happens when the old one is still capable of exciting the senses?
