2017 Toyota 86 The All New Toyota 86 is as Fun as it Looks

Without a doubt, there are cars of the same class with more powerful engines. But there’s just something sweet and special about driving an ultra light-weight and rev-happy engine that continuously begs to be driven hard. At a sub 30k entry level price point, the Toyota 86 beats any other sports cars out on the market in terms of fun and handling money can buy.

SAMSUNG CSCThe Mustang GT Unlocks All the Mysteries of Fun

Nothing quite beats that badass feel of being in the driver’s seat of a modern day V8 hot rod. It’s a menacing experience in both looks and feel from its massive chassis, large diameter wheels, and of course, its thick-blooded V8 engine. Even its interior is decked out with rugged dials, flick switches and a deep color scheme to remind you of the power you possess when within. But despite its demonizing intimidation, the Mustang GT manages to pull off a dual-faced expression of both civilized driving and track aggression.

The Accord is all about Honda Power

Not many can hit the perfect spot to create a fine balance of quality, performance and versatility, but the Honda Accord comes close. With that said, if it works, why change it? The Honda Accord has been continuously refined off of a cookie cutter template for nearly four decades now.

The Lexus RC-F is a Sex Appeal

Looks wise, you probably won’t find much out there that’s better than the Lexus RC sports Coupe. Having said that, RC350 model doesn’t do too shabby either at a power rating of 307 horsepower. But then again, it’s mostly just looks. Throw the RC-F into the picture and you now have a cosmetic display of road aggression and the proper performance numbers to back up its elite design statement.

BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is a sharper, slightly compromised sedan

2015 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe

GENEVA — BMW has proven that it will explore just about any niche that it can in order to deliver to its drivers that Goldilocks car configuration, but the newly unveiled BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe has me wondering if the automaker isn’t just messing with us.

Related stories:

Recently, BMW split the BMW 3 Series line in two. Models with four or more doors kept the 3 Series badge and two-door models were redesignated the 4 Series. However, the new 2015 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe that debuted at the Geneva auto show this week has four doors. It is a sedan variant of the 4 Series Coupe. But the 3 Series was already the sedan variant of the Coupe, right? Confused? Let’s take a closer look.

BMW adds two doors to its new coupe

With its latest product strategy, BMW seems poised to please, yesterday announcing the 4-series Gran Coupe. It’s just like like the all new 4-series coupe, but it gets two rear doors.

The 4-series is a recent addition to the BMW line-up, a model designed to take over the spot formerly used by the 3-series coupe. However, the new 4-series, longer and wider than the 3-series, is its own model. For the newest model year, the 3-series can only be had as a sedan, wagon, or the oddly-shaped Gran Turismo.

BMW retained the length and width of the 4-series model, despite adding the two more doors.

The 4-series was launched with the coupe and a convertible.

The just announced 4-series Gran Coupe has the same width, 6 feet, and length, 15.2 feet, as the standard coupe version, but BMW notes that the roof is about half an inch higher, and holds its height longer towards the rear of the car. That should enhance accessibility to and comfort in the rear seats, which BMW describes as a 2+1 configuration.

Lexus teases possible IS-F coupe for Detroit auto show

(Credit: Lexus)

Lexus just released the first teaser photo for a new model set to debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in just a few weeks.

The shape of the fender seems to indicate an IS-F replacement.

From the looks of the closely cropped teaser photo, the so-called F Performance Coupe appears to be based on the automaker’s IS sedan, largely sharing its styling. The photo also reveals a slight hood bulge, into which is inset what appears to be a functional hood scoop. We expect that the rest of the body will also receive a round of “more aggressive and sporty” updates — not that the 2014 IS 350 F-Sport‘s already overly-aggressive fascia needs any help.

The automaker says that the new model will have “Half the doors, twice the roar”, presumably when compared to 2014 IS sedan, indicating that it will be a coupe and a powerful one. Just how powerful remains to be seen, as no engine specs were released with the image.

Will this be a 416 horsepower, 5.0L V-8 powered challenger to the M3, the C36 AMG,… [Read more]
