@BR2+ The O.E. Bridgestone RE-040s are currently $149 per front tire, and $229 per rear tire. The Yokohama S.drives only ...

@monkeypop shredding tires can be expensive. Of course some people are good at shredding tires no matter what car they ...

I finally found some old photos of my 1995 red Plymouth Neon ACR. Sorry if it is a bit blurry. ...

Racers typically use tire pyrometers, and can easily tell if the tires need a pressure adjustment. Even real cheap amateur ...

Short gearing on the highway can also be kinda loud for a street car. My Spyder runs over 4000 rpm ...

@BR2+ yep, that is why I look to see what Car and Driver says the real weight is since they ...

@Piorun I completely agree. I would purchase the Stingray, not the Z/28.

I just wanted to see this comparison. Not fair of course, but disturbing to some. Including me.

@BR2+ and others: yeah, it seems that with a big enough budget some manufacturers have found the ability to make ...

This is the version available in the U.S. right? The one with the 2ZZ Toyota engine? If so, then this ...

@Super8 thanks for the lap time. Tires have evolved enormously over the 50 plus years since this Corvette was new, ...

Superchargers do fit the character of Mustangs. I have driven two with superchargers, a modified 1994 Mustang GT with around ...

@NIN I didn't know that Hennessey had not acquired OEM status either. Interesting; he should pursue that status.

Wild car! Insanely fast, and probably requiring lots of skill to drive quickly. Unfortunately I haven't ever even seen a ...

Excellent comments. I think that despite the new name (it does solve some owner issues) that this is indeed a ...

@BR2+ I completely agree. This Ferrari is certainly not slow! It is significantly faster than any car I have experienced. ...

@BR2+ I agree Mini Cooper S models are lots of fun, one of my long time friends drives his as ...

@Super8 and Shaggy: I like it as well. Looks like the original Aston Martin Lagonda (which in turn mirrors the ...

I see lots and lots of Tesla Model S running around Northern California, but they at least look good. I ...

I also prefer the Porsche. If I lived where snow was a problem the WRX STi would be nice and ...

Yeah, I think it would be most interesting to see the F Type on sixties tyres. The E Type would ...

Looks like a nice lap time. :)

@Shaggy Happy Birthday!!!

Yeah, I agree that the 5.0 Coyote engine can easily produce more power in N/A form. The problem is the ...

@Piorun I agree, the front drive Megane is much easier to drive in low grip conditions like a wet track. ...

@Mental The track hasn't changed. However sports cars have gotten much bigger, and heavier. It seems to me that the ...

@Super8 groovy!

Yeah, I would also like to drive one of these. Very quick, fast car. Good looks. Rather challenging to drive ...

Merry Christmas, and Happy Yule from the California Viking.

And if you want to make it slower just add some fancy lead trim to make it even heavier. Still ...

@Shaggy I don't think so. I am pretty sure that it uses an Oldsmobile V8 from the Aurora. Kinda obscure ...

@Shaggy Groovy, I haven't even done that for my Spyder. :)

RIP Paul Walker. Great car enthusiast, fine actor. The Carrera GT is one of my favorite cars, as pointed out ...

@hemisrt congrats on a great looking car. One of my friends at work has a Challenger R/T in black with ...

Personally I would much rather have the Ferrari 458 Italia. The Nissan GTR is easier to master, but I like ...

@Fangio Man Yeah slower than the Exige S V6. But that isn't bad. The Exige S V6 model is extremely ...

@MondayBlues groovy. Is there a car page for the Nismo GTR yet?

@Hayes Yeah, that is clearly an optimistic top speed figure. It isn't the power to weight that is the problem, ...

@Jeff D Well, not exactly. Ford is a U.S. company of course, but their European operations are based in Germany. ...

@Shaggy Yeah, I certainly do! Lots of well heeled wine enthusiasts come to the Napa Valley with their exotic and/or ...

@BR2+ I am envious of you. I see plenty of Ferraris, but I have never driven one. I did sit ...

Personally I really like the looks and sound of Ferraris. As I was driving south on Route 29 yesterday after ...
