Alfa Romeo's Triumphant Return
One of the most anxiously anticipated vehicles of the past few years is Alfa Romeo’s sultry new 4C sports car. Since the first concept version bowed in 2011 this product has seemingly whipped all of automotive journalism into a froth that’s stiffer than the peaks of a baked meringue. This much-hyped and oft-delayed product is set to launch this fall and we had a brief opportunity to sample it.
Diesel engines can power for more than just tractor trailers or farm implements; they even have a place in performance vehicles. This may be an unlikely sounding combination but British sports-car brand Trident may be on to something.
Titanium, it’s both light and strong… and pretty expensive. But the benefits may out-“weight” the tradeoffs for Lotus, as the premium sports-car builder is exploring the dusty silver-hued metal for use in its vehicles.
Alfa Romeo has treated 21 very-special customers to a unique ownership experience. Last weekend lucky European buyers who purchased the special “Launch Edition” of the brand’s sultry 4C sports car enjoyed two days of fun in Italy.

There are about to be a lot of sports car owners with feelings of inadequacy. The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will be prowling a track near you soon and it is looking for blood.
With 290 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, the 2015 Volkswagen Golf R will make its North American debut in Detroit.
Will the Real SS Please Stand-Up?
I am a bit of a Camaro guy. As the previous owner of a 1996 Camaro, I still have visions of once again owning a Chevrolet pony car.
So when GM brought back the Camaro in 2010, my excitement to get behind the wheel was understandable. But when the time came to finally pilot a shiny red Camaro SS, I was disappointed.
Despite having over 400 hp, the car felt under powered, heavy, ponderous and quiet; not good traits for an American sports car. In the three years since that drive, Chevy has been working hard to enhance the Camaro and introduced the awesome ZL1 and the upcoming track-special Z/28.
