Report: Mercedes-Benz SL and SLK will go without the auto hard top in the future

Well that sounds romantic. While the folding metal roof may help out with safety, sound deadening and year round useability, it can make the car more costly to design and build, give a less romantic appearance, and weigh the car down a bit more. That last one may be the nail in the coffin for […]

Report: Jaguar plays with the targa-topped idea

The folks over at Jag evidently think they can squeeze into the market Porsche recently tapped back into. The concept of a partially removable or retractable roof is not a new one, and, in fact, US safety legislation scared automakers into doing this trick back in the 1960s. The offering from Porsche starts at over $100,000, […]

2014 McLaren 650S Coupe

McLaren releases images of the 2014 650s Coupé, promises Spider version

First, what’s the name all about? McLaren cryptically reemerged into the production car world with the MP4-12C in 2010, then the P1, etc., so what is this all about? The 650S name represents 650 PS, or 641 bhp; so no, it may not be a direct replacement for the MP4-12C and it’s not quite as […]

Report: Chevy and Holden toying with reuse of Cadillac RWD platform

Though Holden’s future manufacturing prospects down under are in jeopardy, the brand will carry on, and, as a new report suggests, thanks to Cadillac.

Report: Mercedes C63 AMG to get twin-turbo 4.0 liter V8
