The British Prince Grand Tourer: 2016 Jaguar F-Type S

European manufacturers are well known for making beautiful GT cars, and the Jaguar F-Type S is no exception. Jaguar is well known for targeting the 50+ crowd by producing high priced/high quality cars that are aimed more towards luxury than performance, but the S version of the F-Type would beg to differ. Although it is not the full bread Type R, it still boogies. Being the middle child in the F-Type lineup the 3.0L Supercharged V6 is very well balanced, as it is certainly underrated and...

The 2020 Ford Mustang GT is simply raw American performance at it's finest.

The C8 Corvette: Chevy’s Understeering Supercar

Chevrolet shook the world with the C8 Corvette when it made the rumors of moving the engine to the mid a reality. And the hype has all been worth it. All of the reviews from the auto journalist world saying that the C8 Corvette is a true supercar competitor is very much so. The C8 Corvette looks like, feels like, sounds like and drives like a supercar, but with a very budgeted price (that is until dealers stop marking up the MSRP by twice the suggested MSRP). The price of this car considering...

The Challenger Scat Pack: The Last of Its Kind

The Dodge Challenger Scat Pack is a big bodied, big engine, true muscle car that is the only car left that resembles the 60's and 70's perfectly. Under the hood is a NA 6.4L V8 with 485 horsepower and 476 lb feet of torque. Not only does it cruise around like one is sitting on a cloud while driving a boat of a car, but the 6.4L Hemi makes some unique old school muscle cars sounds that is unlike the other competitors today. And not to mention, the styling is a true flashback, unlike the Camaro...

MX-5 Miata: Too Refined For It’s Own Good

Since 1989 the Miata has stolen the hearts of car enthusiasts due to its light weight, small stature, modification potential and rear-wheel drive setup; amongst other things. But, has it become too refined, therefore moving farther away from its lineage? What the original (and still relevant) factors of the Miata have created is a true entry level driver's (sports) car that provides a purely pleasurable experience behind the wheel. But, this 4th generation may have adopted too much of the...

Tesla: Why Car Enthusiasts Should Take Them Seriously

EV cars, more specifically, Tesla's, have been looked down on and/or laughed at for the most part amongst the car enthusiast community. I was part of that group, until I spent two days with one. So, I'm now here to tell you that an electric car is and can be just as much a fun high performance car as any gasoline powered sports car. They can also not only keep up, but put down better performance numbers in some cases. The two full days I spent with the 2020 Tesla Model 3 Performance (Dual...

Alfa Romeo 4C: An Experience Like Non Other

The Alfa Romeo 4C. Ever wanted to know what it feels like to drive a go-cart on public roads? Well, the Alfa Romeo 4C gives you just that experience multiplied by a lot. For a starting MSRP of $67K one would take one look at this car from the outside and inside and then think, who in the hell is going to pay that kind of money for a 230 HP with a bone dry interior, when a car like the BMW M2 is available for around the same price? But, the minute you get behind the wheel and take it on a...

Mustang GT to Replace 2011 M3: Why I made the Switch

The Mustang GT was my first dream car, so my heart is currently enlarged. Being a car enthusiast and cars costing money, one has to occasionally give up one wish list item for another, a trade. The 2011 M3 hardtop convertible was a special car to own; one of its last kinds, but despite trading it for a common car, the GT Mustang is a lot of car that brings a bigger smile to my face. Why does it bring a bigger smile to my face? I guess the biggest part of the answer is that it checks pretty...

The V8 M3: Why Its Still the Pinnacle of Driver’s Cars

The M3 V8 was one of the greatest drivers cars of all time. When one thinks of a drivers car, only one thought should come across the mind, "a performance car that allows the driver to be more in control rather than the ECU taking the driver for a ride." Drivers cars come in all shapes and sizes, but most often come in the shape of a 2-door coupe that sends power to the rear wheels. They also commonly come with a manual transmission, as the stick shift offers a more personal connection between...
