These days, however, a 3 Series has scores of competitors, if a Bimmer doesn’t turn your crank. This review also takes a closer look at Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Lexus IS. Other…
The new 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat has been making serious noise in the horsepower wars, its 707 horsepower stomping on the Ford Shelby GT500 and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. However, the Challenger has long been the best of the muscle cars for a long road trip or a noisy cruise, especially with the SRT team’s hot-rod 6.4L Hemi V8.

After a half-century of pony-car power, making a new Mustang is a tall order for Ford. They’ve got to keep the diehard fans happy, woo new customers, build and expand the brand, introduce new technology, keep the old-school flavour of the car, and showcase the whole shebang to an expectant world. No pressure.
When JP isn’t on set, you might catch him speeding through the streets – not in an old clunker – but in a high-performance car. He drives a 2005 Porsche 911 Turbo and a 2010 Porsche Cayenne Turbo. And in real life, JP can’t always shake that bad-boy image of his Trailer Park days.
The obvious thing to do would be to immediately buy a Type-Aaarrrrrrrrr. That’s right, it’s Talk Like A Pirate Day today, and that got us thinking what it might be like if we had a Drive Like a Pirate Day, too.
Double Dutch When you think of the great supercar makers, the tendency is towards either Teutonic precision or Italian flair. The Dutch? Well, they gave us the CVT, didn’t they? Hardly the sort of place that’ll come up with something capable of tilting at windmills. However, here’s today’s ultra-rare find of the week: a…

Sit up, don’t slow down.
Welcome to Vancouver’s annual display of supercar finery – everything from classic Countaches to Le Mans racers, and exotica like the Bugatti Veyron and Pagani Huayra.
Massive shunts, and history repeats – finally.
He’s best known as “Bubbles” from the hit cult TV series, Trailer Park Boys. But now, actor Mike Smith is dumping his trademark Coke-bottle eyeglasses to play himself in the new flick, Swearnet, which chronicles his adventures with cohorts-in-crime Robb Wells and JP Tremblay – aka Ricky and Julian of the Trailer Park Boys – as they launch a profanity-riddled internet channel. When Smith isn’t on set performing his wild antics, he’s on the road driving a car that is anything but trailer trash. It’s an Italian exotic: a 2007 Maserati Quattroporte.
Clear your weekend – it’s time to race.
There were rules. These cars broke ’em.
Justin shares his favourite winter-ready used rides by price-point, and some tips on shopping smart for the one that interests you.
This Datsun 280ZX is special not for its rarity or collectability, but because it is the exact same car my father sold more than two decades ago – just months before I turned 16 and would begin begging for the keys.

Tackling the winding Angeles Crest Highway would be a challenge for most SUVs, but not Porsche’s Macan Turbo. Fitted with a twin-turbo, 400hp V6, adaptive air-suspension and torque-vectoring, the Macan diced up the road with ease.

Acura’s ditched both the TL and the TSX from their model lineup, replacing both for model year 2015 with a single all-new machine called the TLX.
Nissan couldn’t leave well enough alone, though, and made its own Nyan Cat GT-R (or is that GT-Purrr?) for deadmau5.
Audi’s introduction of the A4, for the 1996 model year, finally gave the BMW 3 Series a serious competitor in a growing luxury compact car market.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has the quality, space, technology and features that make it an executive sedan of the highest order, rather than simply a stepping stone to enter the brand.
I sat astride the 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 650 at the top of a large hill, eyeing my teammates training on the pitch below. I was late, I was wet, and I was cold. The hill was a quagmire, streams of mud and water slid down it as I watched, shivering. A rain storm had caught…
