2013 Mercedes-Benz C300 4MATIC Sedan

Shedding those middle-child blues.<p>TESTED<p>Sandwiched between the rear-wheel-drive C250 and C350 in Mercedes’ C-class sedan range, the C300 4MATIC functions in a narrow bandwidth and didn’t receive as much attention as the others when the lineup was refreshed for 2012. That changed for 2013, with a …

Nissan Crafts Another Special GT-R—This One's Purple

There are three main reasons that automakers craft special editions: to celebrate a new launch, to boost a model’s flagging sales, or to garner some PR for an older vehicle. We’ll let you figure out which of these apply to the five-year-old Nissan GT-R, 624 of which have been sold this year. A …

Lexus Reportedly will Debut RC350 at Tokyo Auto Show, RC F in Detroit

When we caught a few spy shots of the pending Lexus RC hiding under that swirly black and white camouflage earlier this month, we already had a pretty good bead on the car’s architecture and potential powertrain options, but could only speculate regarding its timeline for rollout. Now, <i>Automotive</i> …

2014 Porsche 911 GT3

What Porsche's done to the GT3 is stupefying.<p>Shocking news: The new Porsche 911 GT3 is terrible! It’s a huge disappointment, a broken dream. Cancel your deposit if you’ve made one, and tear up your check if you haven’t. And write to the German ambassador to demand some kind of formal inquiry.<p>No, …

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT

A fast way to move a lot of metal.<p>TESTED<p>Logic goes right out the window with a vehicle like the Grand Cherokee SRT.

2013 Nissan GT-R Black Edition Verdict

Godzilla Goes Bye-Bye<p>Throughout its 13-month loan, our GT-R Black Edition was in constant motion — whether as a participant in signature events like our Best Driver’s Car (November 2012), in comparison tests against supercars such as the Porsche 911 Turbo S (June 2012), or as a foil to other …

2014 Aston Martin Rapide S First Test

Be Still Our Beating Hearts, Still<p>Much has changed about the Aston Martin Rapide since it first graced the world’s roads back in 2010.

2014 Mercedes Benz CLA45 AMG First Drive

Big News In Small Performance<p>I almost feel bad for any manufacturer that has a turbocharged four-cylinder-powered small car scheduled to be released within the next few years. Not only is the new 2014 Mercedes CLA45 AMG breaking new ground in small performance sedans, it will likely be the …

Top 10 Largest Engines in U.S.-Market Cars

View 32 Photos<p>As the new car market shifts towards small-displacement turbocharged engines, big, brutish engines are becoming rarer.

2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG First Test

Our Favorite Anachronism<p>“The old ways are the best ways.” That’s a quote from “Skyfall,” the newest Bond flick. I don’t generally agree with such sentiments. For example, I think the flush toilet is the greatest invention in the history of the world. There are cases, however, where Albert Finney’s …

2014 Porsche Panamera First Drive

Longer Wheelbases, Bigger Batteries, More Power<p>If there’s one thing we’ve come to expect from Porsche, it’s that it doesn’t mess with a good thing (too much, anyway).

BMW R1200R by Lazareth

Ludovic Lazareth has made a name for himself in France with extreme car and motorcycle customs. How about a Mini pickup powered by a 3.5-liter Range Rover engine? A trike with a Ferrari V8 under the hood? Or a custom Yamaha FZR1000 with Tron-style bodywork and a supercharger bolted on? Monsieur …
