It Doesn’t Get Cooler than This One-Off AWD Porsche 356 C4S

5:20 pm PST, February 21, 2019

Okay, maybe make that all year. Rod Emory is well-known in the Porsche community for his “Outlaw” car builds; they typically start with a Porsche 356 as a basis, and his eponymous Emory Motorsports shop carefully and extensively modifies the vintage, air-cooled, rear-engine machines into more extreme versions of the iconic sports cars that they are....

Because France: Citroën’s Funky-Cool Two-Seat EV Anyone Can Drive

3:40 pm PST, February 21, 2019

Citroën has unveiled its Ami One concept car, although perhaps we shouldn’t call it a concept ca—according to Citroën, the Ami One is an “urban electric mobility object.” Named for a delightfully ugly Citroën supermini of the early 1960s (ami is French for “friend”), the Ami One is a two-seat all-electric city car with a...

2:38 pm PST, February 21, 2019

Porsche owner and enthusiast Todd Schleicher has posted what could be the first public images of the 2020 Porsche 911 Turbo on his Instagram account. And we gotta say the car, which is based on the latest 992-generation 911, looks pretty sweet. This gray metallic beast wears glossy black wheels—likely in staggered 20-inch front and...

The Audi SQ5 Is Sporty, Sumptuous, and Strong

12:35 pm PST, February 21, 2019

A sport-tuned crossover wearing 21-inch low-profile summer tires has no right to ride as creamily as does Audi’s second-generation high-performance SQ5. But smooth and refined the SQ5 most assuredly is—as I discovered mere minutes after climbing behind its leather-wrapped, flat-bottom steering wheel. This is a busy segment of the market, bursting with the likes of...

7:01 am PST, February 21, 2019

Despite rumors that Cadillac had killed off the CT6, the large luxury sedan lives on. At least for now. As proof, Cadillac recently released the limited-edition, 550-hp CT6-V.

Electric Porsche Taycan Wagon: Our Best Look Yet

5:20 am PST, February 21, 2019

Last fall, one of our spy photographers captured something interesting: a prototype that appeared to be a Porsche Taycan wagon. Or more specifically, it looked like a Taycan sedan prototype with a hatch crudely attached. We wanted to believe it was proof that Porsche had plans for a Taycan Sport Turismo, but there was no telling...

Sure, they might not be getting poured into the Panther-platform Town Car some people inexplicably still want, but the storied American luxury brand is putting out some seriously compelling products, particularly if you’re in the market for an SUV. Case in point:...

Is This the Next-Generation Ford Ranger?

4:01 pm PST, February 20, 2019

The Ford Ranger name only recently reappeared on our shores after a long hiatus, but the North American truck is based on a design that’s been on the global market since 2012. So it’s already due for a redesign. And what’s this? Australia’s Wheels Magazine has posted images of what could be a very early look at the next-generation...
