Read more

A few years back, people would have looked at you long and funny had you proposed a comparison between the previous BMW M3 coupe and the Chevy Corvette C6 as being a fair fight. You’d just know that the reviewers tasked with figuring out which is best would be pouring over the BMW and picking faults with the American car.

Not Hating, But the New BMW M3 F80 Just Sounds Dull and Artificial [w/Poll]


Read more

Where's the progress in the automotive industry when a car goes from being excellent two generations ago, to being really good one generation prior to now sounding like it’s in Gran Turismo 6? We wonder if BMW intentionally wanted to make it sound as bad as it does in Sony’s driving game, because that’s what they seem to have achieved.

What will it be: New Jeep Renegade or Nissan Juke? [w/Poll]


Read more

As most automakers see it, growing consumer demand for smaller SUVs and crossovers are the major drivers of market growth. Nissan, a company that has changed dramatically under the leadership of Carlos Ghosn, has already carved a niche for itself in the sub-compact category with the Juke, but it will soon face competition from a brand famous for its SUVs, Jeep, which with the help of Fiat, crafted the new Renegade, set to arrive next year.

As America plays catch up in the use of dashboard-mounted recorders on private automobiles that are widely adopted in many other countries such as the motherland of all dash-cams, Russia, more and more incidents emerge online. This one involves a ticket dispute between a citizen and a Sheriff's deputy in Missouri.

Spirited Drive Companion Poll: Which Drive Layout do You Prefer?

The notion that front-wheel drive cars are not as fun to drive as rear-wheel drive cars is rapidly losing validity, as chassis, steering and suspension-tuning techniques have come a long way since the days of Citroen Traction Avant.

Porsche 911 GT3 Named 2014 World Performance Car, but Does it Deserve it? [w/Poll]


Read more

You have probably heard that the Audi A3 snagged the 2014 World Car of the Year award at the New York Auto Show, but the gala included more honors, including the 2014 World Performance Car award, which went to the Porsche 911 GT3. Under normal circumstances, I don’t think anyone could argue that the award is undeserved, but given Porsche’s recall action announced on February 20 which involved all 2014 Porsche 911 GT3s built (785 vehicles), I believe the jurors should have given it a second thought.

New Subaru WRX and WRX STI: Which Other Body Style Would You Like to See?


Read more

If you ask Subaru, the Japanese carmaker's head-honchos seem to be content with selling only traditional sedan versions of their latest-gen WRX and WRX STI models, and since we're willing to believe that they're not in the business of losing money, we presume that there's not enough demand for other body styles to justify the development costs.

What BMW's 3-Series GT and 4-Series GC Would Look Like in M3 and M4 Guises [w/Poll]


Read more

To my knowledge, BMW no intention of taking the 3-Series GT any further than it being an M-Pack model, with bigger wheels, slightly more aggressive styling and regular powerplants, yet since the Bavarians don’t make a hot estate version of their small exec sedan to rival Audi and Mercedes-Benz, an M3 GT would be the next best thing.

BMW M4 vs Lexus RC F, Which Super Coupe Would You Take? [w/Poll]


Read more

It is hard to imagine a wilder interpretation of Lexus’ answer to the BMW M4 Coupe, the RC F. Based on an already daring design, the RC coupe, the RC F is the type of design that you either love or hate. One can tell designers were given a free hand to make the car as aggressive as possible and my opinion is that, they did a fine job.

The year 2013 is drawing to a close, and the all-important pine tree and Coca-Cola holiday is coming up, when all good Christians prepare with gifts and warm words for friends and loved ones, acquiring all that is needed by queuing shops for hours in a row, listening to the same carols over and over again…
