Toyota GT 86 / Scion FR-S May Find There's No Replacement For Displacement

Toyota's little sports car could get a bigger engine.

The Scion FR-S is a pretty damn impressive little sports car, with a Porsche-worthy chassis and tenacious yet pitchable handling. But if the car has a weakness, it lies beneath that long, low hood. With only 200 horses and 151 lb-ft of torque, the 2.0 liter boxer four Subaru developed for the Toyota GT 86/Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ is adequate at best—but the car could handle so much more. (more…)

Cadillac Escalade

New Cadillac Escalade Will Debut In October

It will be large, and it will be in charge.

There have been a total of three-generations of GM's full-size Cadillac SUV. To say the least, the third-generation has been around since 2007, making it a total 6 years since we've seen anything different from the Escalade. In fact, it really hasn't changed much since the second-generation, which has been around since 2002. Well, come October 2013, GM will finally unveil the fully redesigned 2015 Cadillac Escalade in New York City. So far, all we know is that GM is calling it a “bold, evolutionary statement.” The 2015 Cadillac Escalade will go on sale sometime in spring 2014. The new model is expected to keep its body-on-frame platform but will feature an all-new exterior and interior with fold-flat third-row seats. Insiders say that prices are expected to go up by several thousand dollars from the current $67,985 price tag. Through July 2013, GM has sold a total of 12,638 units of the Cadillac Escalade.

Rumor Is Porsche Has Big, Controversial Plans For The 918

Here's a hint: Think more doors.

Porsche's betting big on the 918 Spyder. The high-tech hybrid supercar's been in development for years now, and even with Porsche poised to make a potential gross income of $826,200,000 or so on the car (918 examples times around $900,000 per unit), Porsche's profits on the 918 reportedly aren't quite where the car maker wants them to be.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible to debut in Frankfurt

Chevrolet will debut the convertible version of the slightly redesigned 2014 Camaro at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show later this month. "Camaro has always been associated with iconic design, high performance and driving fun, and we are particularly proud of the new coupe and convertible models," said Dr. Thomas Sedran, President and Managing Director, Chevrolet Europe. "They incorporate new high-tech features that add extra convenience and give customers even more value for their money," Sedran added. Like the Coupe, the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible receives the most significant redesign to the model since its concept debut in 2006. The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible is powered by a 6.2 liter V8 engine making 432-hp allowing it to go from 0 to 62 mph in 5.4 seconds.

Cadillac Elmiraj Production is 'Very Doable'

At the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Cadillac unveiled the Elmiraj Concept, a gran turismo coupe that it says expresses the pure enjoyment of driving. The Cadillac Elmiraj Concept looks into the future of Cadillac design and performance technology. “Cadillac is fueled by the creativity of our designers, led by Ed Welburn,” said Bob Ferguson, senior vice president, Global Cadillac. “Elmiraj provides a look inside the Cadillac Studio on how we envision performance and luxury for the next generation of luxury drivers.” Power for the Cadillac Elmiraj comes from a 4.5-liter twin-turbo V8 delivering an estimated 500-hp. The twin-turbo charging technology comes from the Caddy's newTwin Turbo V6 featured in the upcoming 420-hp 2014 CTS Vsport Edition. Well, we're all wondering the obvious - will Cadillac produce the Elmiraj? According to Bob Ferguson, senior vice president of global Cadillac, the Elmiraj Coupe 'is very doable.' "Sometimes you go through these exercises to make a design statement," said in an interview with Automotive News. "This car is marketable. It's practical enough to be put through the production process." He went on to say that Caddy dealers would really like to see the car in their stores. Source: Automotive News

Bugatti Working on Veyron Replacement

We've always wondered what Bugatti had planned following the end of the line for the Veyron. Contrary to rumors, Bugatti has no Super-duper Veyron planned that will run from 0 to 60 mph in under 2 seconds so stop believing everything you read on the Internet. According to AutoBlog, Bugatti is planning a car to replace the Veyron. In a sit down with Bugatti President Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, AutoBlog learned that the company is working on a new car that will debut in the near future. Schreiber doesn't want Bugatti fans to think of the new vehicle as a successor to the Veyron but a replacement to the model. Currently, Bugatti has built a total of 390 units of the Veyron. The original plan was to build a total of 450 units - of course that means you can still expect to see another round of special-edition or one-off models of the world's fastest supercar.

Test Drive - Tesla Model S

The moment of truth for the so-called Car of Tomorrow—a test by a cynical gas-lover.

I suffer from a condition I like to call “Harry Potter Syndrome.” See, when Harry Potter first came out, it seemed like every single kid my age couldn’t shut up about how awesome it was and how much they loved it and what do you mean you haven’t read it yet, you have to read it! So partly out of the belief that whatever the masses thought was great couldn’t actually be that great, and partly out of sheer stubbornness, I dug in my heels and said no. (more…)

Ferrari 458 Speciale Is The 458 Scuderia

Faster, lighter, more powerful...but weirder-looking.

Because revealing new cars at auto shows is just way too mainstream, Ferrari revealed the new higher-performance version of the 458 Italia almost a month in advance of the Frankfurt Motor Show where it was expected to debut. It's called the Ferrari 458 Speciale (not 458 Scuderia, because Ferrari apparently didn't want to reuse the name) and it's, not surprisingly, faster and more powerful than the 458 Italia. (more…)
