Maybe there will be trickle-down effects in play and the base and enthusiast models will get some love too :)

I find the timing convenient, Ford's pricing and specs for the new Mustang is set to...

It's about time. It's been outclassed since 2011 and the new 5.0 is already on the way. Lots of potential in that chassis and platform and they just let it linger :/

Looks like there's a...

Garbage cars? Dude, you drive a base-model GS that can't even hit 13s, not a Porsche or Ferrari. The same snobby types over in various BMW forums say the same thing about your car but instead of...

Cadillac is definitely putting everyone on notice with the CTS V-sport. I'm very impressed. I really do hope that motor makes it into the ATS-V; it's going to be a monster and a REALLY good bargain...

IIRC, and it has been a VERY long time at this point, I seem to recall 24" being the 'norm'. That may have changed though and I had heard that some people were able to get it to work without...

Calipers are slap and go. I had them inspected and I cleaned them, the car they were pulled from was a wrecked, low-mileage LS.

Since when does down-low torque matter on a track? Since when does peak torque actually matter here at all? Is this a discussion over what car is more pleasant to pick up groceries in or how it...

Oh yeah? I wasn't aware. And yeah, no M3 upgrades really as it already made more power than claimed and I'm not sure if the handling could have been improved much without sacrificing ride. Though...

Lexus IS known for its supple ride, and numb steering. Both of which changed in the F-sport. I've yet to drive one, but I've seen enough evidence.

The IS-F engine's age is a GREAT point. Why is...

I wouldn't say its a waste, but I think it's not quite there yet. And it hasn't changed since it's inception. It SHOULD be making more power by now with a mid-model refresh and they need to tweak...

I don't see why there wouldn't be, the sales of the GTR have to do specifically with the sales of that car alone. Nissan's brand imaging doesn't really have anything to do with it as no one comes in...

That's all true. But the Supra's power output was very weird; if you've ever driven a stock one (I know they're very rare these days), you know what I'm talking about. The sequential turbo control...

Well BMW has a LOT of research into DI and modern turbo motors, don't forget that. The N54 is incredibly responsive compared to the likes of the 2JZ. It makes the same peak power but with a wider...

Yes, that will totally dominate.... in a waste of R&D. A carbon fiber frame would kick the pricing of this car into orbit and no one would buy it. Part of the allure of the GT-86 is that it is well...
