Batman Called, He Wants His NSX Back

Bigger Is Better: A 4.1L 997 GT3

After wrapping up a little trip around SharkWerk’s workshop, Alex Ross and I took his buddy Ralph’s 540hp Porsche GT3 out for a spin. If you haven’t caught on by now, this is a shop that builds cars

Volvo’s first collaboration with Bertone was in 1977 when the Swedish automaker asked the Italian designer to take a 260 sedan and transform it into a two-door coupe. The 262C was an awkward-looking

The JDM Kyusha Price Boom

Has the Japanese classic car world gone completely mad? It may seem so, but then again is it any less mad than what’s happened with 911 prices around the globe? Of course not; it’s what happens when

Take The Long Way Home: BMW M4 Versus DTLA

So often, I think that we forget to really appreciate the simple act of driving or even the privilege of owning a car. Not necessarily driving fast, and the car itself doesn’t have to be anything

It would have come at the perfect time – the beginning of the 1980s when the domestic economy was sailing full speed ahead towards the craziest decade that Japan has ever seen. And it came about a

Kyusha Indulgence: The Nostalgic 2 Days

Does HKS’s New Tsukuba Record Count?

For years, we’ve watched on from afar as the times fell. Over 10 years ago, a 55-second lap was breathtaking. Today, we’re talking about the HKS TRB-03 setting a barely believable 49.445-second lap

The RWB 964 With A Secret

It was last year when Louis put me in touch with Kris Duggan to shoot his car, but only last weekend did the stars finally align for us at an OnGrid track day. Kris said his RWB 964 had never been

CG Fantasizing With Khyzyl Saleem

It’s always a good day when I see Khyzyl’s name pop up in my inbox, as I know that just like myself, you guys love to see what crazy concepts and creations he’s been working on. This is the first of a

The Calm Before: Kei Miura’s Pandem Civic

I love it when a story like this just happens to materialize, it’s so ‘Japan’ with the unexpected occurring a little bit more often than most other places. A few days after Tokyo Auto Salon 2018
