These sensible, everyday vehicles are safe, spacious and efficient; in short they’re perfect for families, be them planned or… not. But for all their merits these cars are about as much fun as counting grains of sugar in a five-pound bag.

jaguar-f-type-coupe

The hardtop version of Jaguar’s heavily hyped new F-Type sports car was spied today again on the Nurburgring.

Expected to be available with the same engine options as the convertible, the car will likely come with two V6 powertrains and a V8 option. Jaguar initially showed the concept version as a coupe, and the production version is expected to arrive sometime next year,

More aggressive R and R-S versions of both the coupe and convertible are also likely in the future.

Currently, the base V6 offers 340 hp from its supercharged 3.0-liter V6. The F-Type S also uses a 3.0-liter supercharged six, but output increases to 380 hp. Finally, the range-topping V8 S makes 495 hp, but still sits short of what the brand’s powerplants are capable of.

Retro Ride: 1993 Mazda RX-7 Review

Is this car still legendary, or just past its prime?

1993-Mazda-RX-7-09.png

The 1990s was a great time for Japanese sports cars. Pretty much every manufacturer was building a world class performance machine including Mazda, with the third generation RX-7. But that was twenty years ago and what may have been great then, might not be any good today. So, we have gotten our hands on a pristine, low mileage 1993 Mazda RX-7 to see if it was all hype, or the real deal.

The 1990s is a decade known for things like flannel shirts, grunge music, Barney the purple dinosaur and Napster. But for those who live and breathe high octane fuel, the ‘90s was also a great time for performance vehicles. With the world economy in fine shape, manufacturers everywhere were producing some impressive machinery. This is the decade that gave birth to the Dodge Viper, McLaren F1 and Lamborghini Diablo.
