We want. We want. We really want this Porsche.
We’ve been waiting with baited breath for the 991-generation Porsche 911 GT3 to arrive, so we can properly drive the hell out of it on all our favorite roads. Well, it’s not here yet, but Porsche has taken the wraps off the next best thing: the racing version of the new 911 GT3. Actually, some might say that’s even better. (more…)
In your choice of size: piccola, media o grande.
If your taste in Italian sports cars has always trended towards the trident-branded cars of Maserati, it’s been a rough few decades for you. The current GranTurismo has all the sex appeal of a rolling Pirelli calendar, but its performance just doesn’t live up to its price. The GranTurismo MC Stradale packs a 453 horsepower V8 that sends it from 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, but a Jaguar XKR-S, Porsche 911 Turbo or GT3 or Audi R8 4.2 will all outrun it and look just as good doing so—while costing an entire BMW 335i less.

But at least we get a power bump out of the bargain.
And the M3 becomes the M4. No joke.
The car you see in the photo gallery above, while it bears a pretty strong resemblance to the new F30-generation BMW 3 Series, is called the Concept 4 Series. And that means exactly what you think it does: the two door 3 Series models will finally be walking down to city hall to change their names. (more…)
Once the next-generation Panamera arrives.
We’ve been hoping for a modern-day reinterpretation of the Porsche 928 for quite a while now, but we’re now getting word that Porsche is about to make our hopes a reality—though their new front-engined V8 sports car is much more likely to bear the Panamera Coupe name than any three-digit integer.

But no, it's not coming here.
Update as of 6:32pm EST, 12/6/12: Audi of America has confirmed they currently have no plans to import the RS6 Avant. So start praying for that RS7.
Rejoice, friends—Audi’s draggin’ wagon is back, and there’s a good chance the new 2013 RS6 Avant will quickly become one of our favorite cars when we lay our hands on it. If we lay our hands on it. (Nah, when. We’re optimists.) (more…)
This could be the face of the Italian Jesus Supercar.
We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: These days, it’s pretty much impossible to keep a highly-anticipated car’s design completely under wraps until the car’s debut. The Ferrari F12berlinetta snuck out before it was scheduled to appear, and now it seems we may be getting an early look at the next Ferrari supercar—the Enzo’s replacement, the Italian Jesus Supercar.

Just let us peel the chrome wrap off first.
