The first Porsche 911 with a turbocharged engine

Porsche has been making great automobiles since its founding in the 1930's and perhaps one of the best cars they've ever produced is the Porsche 930 Turbo.

Segment Spotlight: The Full-Sized SUV Can Do Just About Anything

There's no replacement for a good sport utility vehicle

The full sized sport utility vehicle or SUV was originally designed as a vehicle that could drive both on and off-road and handle anything in between with ease.

Celebrating the Years the Dodge Viper Enjoyed Before its Impending Doom

The journey of Dodge's high-performance machine

Dodge's amazing V10 sports car is no more for a couple reasons

Fiat-Chrysler's decision to kill off the Viper made sports car enthusiasts everywhere shed a tear. While it's sad news, it was hardly a shock. The handmade sports cars were expensive and sold poorly.

The Strangest 4x4s of All Time

We love that these vehicles don't really make sense

Automotive history is littered with weird concepts and innovative designs, and some of the most interesting ideas have come to consumers as 4x4s.

The Ferrari GTC4 Lusso Replaces the FF as the Brand's 12 Cylinder Grand Tourer

The sporty four-seater packs a punch with 680 hp

When the Ferrari FF came on the scene in 2011 it was an interesting design choice for the Prancing Horse brand. It has crisp, sleek Ferrari looks in the front, and then a hint of wagon in the back. Either way, it was due for a refresh, so Ferrari has decided to replace it altogether, introducing the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso in its place.

The Scion FR-S Thumbs Its Nose At Convention

This is a rear-wheel drive sports car built to wake you up.

While Scion may be going the way of the dodo, Toyota won't let some of its more impressive sister brand's models die off. Notably, the FR-S (base MRSP $27,000). It's one of the few affordable rear-wheel drive sports cars on the road. Toyota needs this car in its lineup because it does something that the company's other cars don't - it doesn't break under the pressure of the market and try to become a practical, everyman's car.

Kahn's Land Rover Defender End Edition Is Fearsome

Menacing limited-edition model gives the Defender a proper goodbye

British tuner Kahn Design is giving the Land Rover Defender the proper goodbye it deserves, creating the most menacing limited-edition model it could dream up.

5 Modern Family Cars Faster Than a Ferrari 348

Family-friendly does not have to be synonymous with tame

When Ferrari introduced its 348 TB in 1989, it blew people away. The long-awaited successor to the 308/328 series, it was a dramatic departure from its predecessor.
