In dollars per HP, it's so hard to beat the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

Numbers don't lie, and the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is a big angry box full of big angry numbers: 707 hp, 650 lb-ft of torque, and an 11-second quarter on street tires. The largest number is also the most amazing: the angriest SRT starts at $63,995, including the $1700 gas guzzler tax. » 10/20/14 2:10pm Monday 2:10pm

The Mercedes-Benz secret Holy Halls are filled with awesome

In the Classic Center, "if you have to ask"-priced vintage Benzes produce copious drool in onlookers. In the secret "Holy Halls," you'd better bring a bib. Right when you walk in, you're greeted with the ludicrous road-going CLK GTR roadster. This is madness. » 10/09/14 9:32am 10/09/14 9:32am

Jack Baruth to Miata haters: your argument is invalid because ND

It's the tiny elephant in the room: the legitimacy of the Maza Miata's man card. Is it forged, or authentic? Are roadsters still manly? Does anybody really care after driving one? Moot points, says Jack. The new Miata is fit for a man, and you're wrong if you disagree. » 10/08/14 10:35am 10/08/14 10:35am

Want to choose the right Porsche Cayman or Boxster? Read this.

A while back, we told you why we thought dropping an extra $11k on the GTS variants of the Boxster and Cayman is worth the eye-watering cost of entry—and we stand by that. It's a "good deal" in Porsche parlance. Remember, it's Porsche's world, and we're all just tacking on $23k in options on the average sale, right? » 10/07/14 9:21am 10/07/14 9:21am

I drove 2800 miles in a half-dead Miata to see the 2016 ND

The desert north of Las Vegas was sweltering, broiling, intolerable. In front of me, brake lights and stopped cars for miles—construction. Above, the night sky taunted me. It was after dark but the air was a parching 104F, and I was trapped in a cockroach-sized lozenge of a sportscar whose A/C had given up the ghost,… » 10/03/14 9:54am 10/03/14 9:54am

Speed-obsessed tuners chase the last scraps of vMax at Nardò

It's gotten to the point where we scoff that the Ferrari LaFerrari can "only" reach 217 mph, but with all of the Texas highway and Ehra-Lessien videos out there, it's hard to remember that there are only a few places where the brave can try for 200 mph. » 9/12/14 9:29am 9/12/14 9:29am

Don't fall prey to the sinister myth of the affordable supercar

At some point, the stuff of your dreams (and if you're here, those dreams might just have side strakes and NACA ducts) gets old. One day, the all-conquering hero of yesterday's car rag crosses the depreciation threshold of your average income, no matter how many posters filled bedroom walls or pre-driver's license… » 8/28/14 11:16am 8/28/14 11:16am

Can the bone-stock 2015 M3 beat its Group A ancestor at Mid-Ohio?

Both of these cars are BMW M3s. One is descended from the other, but other than that, it's all differences. Naturally-aspirated four versus twin-turbo six. Street tires versus wildly-cambered race rubber. A warranty, and an S14 engine that burns money and fuel in equal proportions. One won races for years, the other… » 8/26/14 12:47pm 8/26/14 12:47pm

Among 800-hp Camaros at Daytona, our old Miata draws a crowd

There were cars at Daytona International Speedway—cars that Editor Zach Bowman and the 330k-mile Miata he drove over from Utah shared the banking with—that use more horsepower to turn their superchargers than our eyesore made new. Like an AMX that looked like it might run on boiled-down Miatas. » 8/21/14 10:57am 8/21/14 10:57am
