The BMW 3- and 4-Series are effectively the same car, only the 3-Series comes with four doors while the 4-Series uses two (replacing the outgoing 3-Series coupe). When it comes to the 2015 M3 and M4, same rules apply. They both shed weight compared to their predecessors, go faster, produce better fuel ratings, and ditch their V-8 motors in favor of a brand new twin-turbocharged inline 6.
Sounds promising.Read More »from 2015 BMW M3 and M4 revealed, featuring all-new twin turbo inline 6
Convertibles get denounced by enthusiasts for being less pure. There’s some truth to that: installing the hydraulics to retract the roof adds weight, it usually makes the car look like a plank of wood, and it comprehensively ruins the handling by sacrificing structural rigidity.
See. Less pure.
Only, Chevrolet doesn't agree. It claims the 2014 Corvette Stingray convertible is just as good as its hardtop twin, and can even outdo a McLaren 12C in its stiffness test. Come again?Read More »from Why chopping the roof off a 2014 Corvette Stingray makes it better
Carroll Shelby was known for many muscular things, but do you remember his Dodge Omni GLH-S, pictured here by Greg Gjerdingen? Shelby himself declared it his "pocket rocket." After Shelby's death last year, Shelby American is trying to revive the Texan's love of the hot-hatch, now building a 300-hp Shelby Focus ST.

With this winter primed to be one of the snowiest in recent years, and with much of the country having seen sizable accumulation already, many of us will be faced with driving in treacherous conditions. Only last night, at 1 am, I was driving home from Indianapolis airport in a white-out, averaging around 25 mph despite having new all-season tires. I witnessed some drivers in mistreated old cars, with what I assumed would be equally neglected tires, bombing down the road at more than twice my speed. I thought, odds are I'll see one of these guys in a ditch.Read More »from 70-car pileup caught on video captures the dangers of winter driving
The last time Chevrolet sold a proper rear-wheel drive sports sedan was the Impala SS, 17 years ago. But back in February, Mark Reuss, head of General Motors North America, unveiled a new Chevy sports sedan – one with rear-wheel drive, sensible rear seating and a 6.2-liter Corvette V-8 that boasts 415 hp and sprints to 60 mph in less than five seconds.
We were intrigued. And now we’ve driven it. Can the 2014 Chevrolet SS silence the skeptics and compete with Europe?Read More »from 2014 Chevrolet SS, mixing with the best: Motoramic Drives
The Citroën DS, pictured here by Tomas Piller in a stunning shade of gold, exemplified futuristic beauty and revolutionary technology -- like its hydropneumatic self-leveling suspension that helped the French automaker sell almost 1.5 million DSs (almost none of which came from the US where the DS never caught on) and cement a reputation for possessing a "magic carpet" like ride. But most important to its European success was its appearance at the drive-in movie theatre in cabriolet form during the close of Pee-wee's Big Adventure. Because of this, and its brief cameo on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, a good DS often now fetches north of six figures at auction. OK, it might not have much to do with its TV roles. But it surely didn't hurt.

Google's self-driving car has completed hundreds of thousands of test miles within the past two years, paving the way for autonomous driving technology. The world's largest automakers are scrambling to catch the tech giant. Nissan has even set a date, promising electric self-driving vehicles on the road by 2020. Volvo, too, has jumped in with both feet, unveiling its concept for a self-parking car controlled via a phone application earlier this year.
Now, the Swedish manufacturer has gone a step further, announcing a program named "Drive Me" that will see 100 self-driving cars hit the streets of Gothenburg, Sweden, by 2017.Read More »from Volvo taking 100 self-driving cars to the streets in world first
Driving a Ferrari 458 Italia is like tasting a 1985 Sassicaia. If you took a swig of the acclaimed red wine in your early years, all you'd think is a jug of Arbor Mist from Walmart would be around $1,490 cheaper and get you just as buzzed.
But as one matures, so do one's taste buds. The smallest sip of Sassicaia now transforms what you believe a well-rounded red should be. Your opinion of wine; what makes one good; what makes one special, changes. After years of necking cheap wine boxes, you appreciate the search for perfection in a way you never could in your youth.
And that's what the Ferrari 458 Italia is: Perfection, that should be earned. Watching a 14-year-old British boy tool around in Modena's finest makes me question not just whether he can, but whether he should.Read More »from The mystery of how a 14-year-old boy gets to drive a Ferrari 458 Italia
Times have evolved since man used horse and carriage for transportation. As Ron Burgundy points out, why use one horse when you can use many? And as Christmas nears, the pressure grows for St. Nicholas to update his methods in a world obsessed with superbikes and delivery drones. After all, a herd of reindeer pulling a sleigh – despite one with an unusually red nose — hits more of a hipster vibe than the millennial crowd.Read More »from Santa Claus tests Ferrari F1 racecar as Rudolph replacement
