  • Kia's K5 GT is The Car We Were Missing While Driving The GT Line

    In the automotive industry it seems like there are two different core types of trim level packages. The first is purely cosmetic and the second is actually functional. A few weeks ago, we were driving the K5 GT-Line and it left us shaking our head wonder why that trim was even created. It looked great but when it came to delivering on the performance it's good looks promised, quite simply it fell short. Now that we've had a chance to play with the 2021 Kia K5 GT we are even more shocked that the GT-Line exists at all.

  • Lexus RC 350 F-Sport: Sporty, Luxurious and Nearly Perfect

Boasting Lexus’ trademark luxury and performance, the Lexus RC 350 F-sport will be available in two versions: an RWD version for those who love to drive and an AWD version for those who need some extra traction on wet roads or simply more stability when accelerating around corners. Lexus has been making waves with its beautiful sportscars lately, and this new model is no exception.

  • These Safe Driving Tips Apply To Everyone From The Charger Hellcat Redeye All the Way Down

    Nothing can make a driver’s stomach drop quite like zipping down the freeway and catching a glimpse of red and blue lights flashing in your rearview mirror. Unfortunately, male drivers (who lack the superpower of sweet-talking their way out of a speeding ticket anyhow) may be more prone to this unfortunate turn of events. This is especially true when driving flashy high-performance cars. According to recent studies, men are approximately 50 percent more likely to be pulled over than women, making them targets for higher insurance premiums and hefty fines. That means that even with your base model... there's still a lot for guys to learn when it comes to safety on the road.

  • Our Top Five PC Racing Games

    Driving games are a great way to spend a few minutes blowing off some steam and today, they are also a lot of fun to watch people stream online too. While we hope to soon be back in the paddock of some races surrounded by the sounds and smells, these games continue to help keep us excited about driving, while we wait.

  • 2020 Corvette Performance and Design For A New Generation

    Since the mid-1970’s Chevy has teased us with mid-engine Corvette concepts. Some of the styling cues and technology bits were used here and there on later gen Corvettes. GM cited the low volume/higher development, engineering costs, and the resulting sticker shock to customers as reasons for not making the switch. 

  • Why The C8 Corvette Stingray Is Actually A Very Practical Car

    Without a doubt, most guys are looking at the all-new Corvette as an aspirational toy that they dream of one day being able to enjoy driving. However, unlike its more expensive cousins, Corvette is a shockingly practical car too. To explore this side, we drove it around San Diego for a week earlier this fall including trips to the beach, grocery shopping, and simply around town on our normal daily chores.

  • Cadillac CT5-V Delivers on The Promise of an American Luxury Sports Sedan

    When you think of a luxury sports sedan, most likely your mind jumps immediately to brands like BMW, Audi, Mercedes, and Lexus. While American automakers do a great job at building muscle cars the concept of power and sportiness melded together with luxury is simply not something that they are known for. The 2020 Cadillac CT5-V however brings that promise home in a big way.

  • Mustang GT Convertible Represents Everything Right About America

    There's a lot of bad stuff that we as Americans are working through right now, but fast, powerful, affordable sports cars are not one of them. The Ford Mustang is truly and icon of everything that is right about America and so it was the perfect car to borrow for a celebration of the Fourth of July.

  • 2021 Mazda 3 Powers Up With The Skyactive-G 2.5T Engine

    In this age of trucks, trucks and more trucks Mazda is working hard to put some “zoom-zoom” into its sedans and crossovers. I’ve always thought that Mazda vehicles are underrated, but also a little underpowered. Recently, Mazda announced a new power upgrade to one of its vehicles that you might not expect.

  • Ford Introduces Mustang Mach-E 1400 hp Performance Prototype

    Mission accomplished: Ford introduces Mustang Mach-E 1400, an all-electric road rocket that shows just how much performance can be harnessed without using a drop of gas. Coming hot on the heels of the 1,400-horsepower all-electric Mustang Cobra Jet 1400, this one-off Mustang Mach-E with its seven electric motors and high downforce is ready for the track, drag strip or gymkhana course – anywhere it can show how electric propulsion promises extreme Mustang performance. 

  • The Avalon TRD Is Not Your Grandfather's Avalon Anymore

    Toyota was always "my parent's car brand" it was safe, dependable, affordable, and while all of those things are positive attributes for a car brand it was also boring and conservative. While Toyota is still among the more conservative brands out there, in the past couple years they have begun to introduce more power, improved designs, and tried new ideas. When they introduced the Avalon TRD last year it was a bit confusing since the Avalon had always been a "grandpa car". Now though, it fills a unique spot in the marketplace and so I was excited to take it for a spin.

  • Lexus LC500 Road Trip Review Exploring San Diego Beach Towns

    The 2020 Lexus LC 500 first attracted my attention at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show for it's absolutely stunning "Flare Yellow" color and it's beautiful lines. I didn't know much more about the vehicle other than that, but I knew I wanted to experience it in person as soon as possible. Thankfully, the folks at Lexus had one available. This isn't exactly a road trip kind of car, though I was quite impressed by the size of the trunk and the level of comfort in the cockpit... even for a big guy like me. So, our plan was to do a day trip exploring San Diego beach towns.

    There's no better destination for guys looking for a petrol and adrenaline-fueled guys getaway than Dubai. This is probably the single best spot in the world if you want to see exotic cars of all types, colors, and shapes from police cars to million-dollar cars parked at the mall... and then there are the one-of-a-kind offroad beasts too.

  • Ford Mustang Mach-E First Ride Preview at Chicago Auto Show

    Ok guys, so there's been a lot of debate about "is this a Mustang" and so when I saw the opportunity to do a quick ride along at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show yesterday I literally jumped at the chance. I waited in line with other media who were similarly excited to take a ride in what is undoubtedly one of the most hotly anticipated new car releases. On the outside though, Mustang fans, EV enthusiasts, and even some Chevy and Dodge performance devotes have all been hotly debating the merits of an all-electric vehicle that bears such an iconic badge. Is it worthy? Is it a Mustang? Here's my thoughts.

  • Updated 2020 Ford GT: More Power, Less Weight, New Options

    Last night we were on hand for a special unveiling of the updated Ford GT supercar for 2020, including increased engine power to 660 horsepower and improved cooling. To say that it was beautiful would be an understatement. This is the pinnacle of supercar design and it frankly feels wonderful to have it coming from an iconic American brand like Ford. 

  • What Wine Would You Pair With a Maserati?

    Pairing wine with food is something that most people think about when the subject of how to best enjoy wine comes up. Really though, the spectrum is much wider than that. Last week, I got invited to a Maserati and wine tasting event and so I started thinking about what wines pair well with which cars. After all, we tend to refer to both wines and cars in terms of personality. So it got me thinking, which wines would I pair with which Maserati cars? 

  • Shelby GT500 First Drive - Most Powerful Street-Legal Ford Ever

    Last week I got invited to join Ford for the launch of their all-new Shelby GT500 Mustang, the most powerful street-legal Ford ever made. It's a beast that is trying to be more than just a drag strip king. Ford has worked hard to make this a vehicle that will perform equally well on the street, track, and drag strip. Did they succeed?
