10 Sleeper Cars That Speed Under The Radar (And 10 Flashy Slowpokes)
Modern sports car development combines massively powerful engines, complex suspension geometry, and computer-designed aerodynamic exteriors in radically expensive packages that few drivers could ever hope to own. Cars like the Koenigsegg Agera and Bugatti Veyron stand out not just for their insane performance and burbling exhausts, but also simply because they look the part of a world-beating supercar. Even relatively tame sports cars from mainstream manufacturers have begun incorporating active aero details, adaptive suspension, and enormous rear diffusers and spoilers to help keep their tires glued to the road. And the truth is that plenty of buyers choose their cars equally as much for style points as for actual performance.

10 Best Manual-Transmission Sports Cars Of The '90s
There’s something about a manual transmission sports car, much like there was something about Mary, in the movie that is.

12 V8 Cars That Put Any Motorcycle To Shame (And 13 That Eat Dust)
There's just nothing quite like a V8 to bring smiles to the faces of automotive enthusiasts the world over. From the snarl of a V8's exhaust to wide and torquey power bands to the historical significance - especially of Detroit's V8 muscle cars - the design has proven so legendary it even achieved worshipful status and a prayerful hand clasp in Mad Max: Fury Road. Today's manufacturers are upping the ante on their V8 engines by adding plenty of forced induction to already massive displacement. It seems like a never-ending arms race is dominating Detroit, as each brand tries to one-up the rest with the latest special edition model - while tuners like Special Vehicle Engineering and Hennessey Performance offer plenty of upgrades packages to bump power up to and beyond the magical 1,000 horsepower mark.

25 Slow Cars That Are Really Fun To Drive Fast
Some say it's more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow. But is that statement really true, or is it made up by people who own slow cars so they can feel better about themselves? Having driven our fair share of slow cars, and probably other people's share as well, we can honestly say there's some truth to it. Part of the fun of driving a small-engined car fast is that it's rewarding! It's easy to go fast in a fast car, just floor the throttle and the car will take off, whereas a slow car actually teaches us how to drive properly through the extra work we put in to keep the speed up.

Singer's 911 Turbo Study: A Better Bet Than The Original Porsche 911 (930) Turbo
If you happen to be from the '70s, and love Porsches, it's highly unlikely you haven't had a poster pin-up of the 911 (930) Turbo. Excruciatingly exotic in the same way Erin Gray was, the 930 Turbo is still among the most celebrated supercars. Most of these classic Turbos, as of today, in pristine condition are sold at auctions or private car dealers for nothing less than $150,000. However, seldom-driven examples could come with saturated fluids, leading to corrosion and wear. Regular, preventive maintenance is likely to blow a hole in your wallet.

11 Concept Cars Ferrari Hopes We Forget (And 8 They Should Actually Make)
Enzo Ferrari founded the company back in 1939. A year later the car company built the very first model.

However, like other prestigious car brands we tend to forget about, Ferrari had multiple duds along the way. We tend to celebrate some of the best models, such as the F40 or the LaFerrari, but what if we told that the inspiration for the LaFerrari came from one of the worst concept Ferrari models ever created? Yes, that is the reality. As you’ll see in this article the 60s, 70s and 80s created some wacky concepts. We’ll also include recent innovations that we hope Ferrari looks away from.

Dodge Demon Meets Its Match On The Strip Against 7-Second Mustang
The Dodge Demon. It’s one of the most insane factory muscle cars in recent time, or perhaps of all time.

If you take a Demon straight out of the factory gates and bring it to a drag strip, it’ll still be impressive.

Audi continues to forge ahead year after year with its finely crafted vehicles, pushing the boundaries of performance and quality to ever-higher levels. At the top of its model tree sit the RS models, cars that have been created to defy the laws of physics and provide the ultimate in driving pleasure, with the RS6 being the best all-round performance car ever made.
