BMW’s 3 Series Coupe is fading away. It’s soon to be replaced by the all-new 2014 4 Series, a car that’s powered by either a four- or six-cylinder turbo. But what about drivers that want even more performance than what’s provided by these base engines? There’s no need to call Scooby Doo and company because the Concept M4 Coupe is a pretty obvious clue as to what’s in the works.
We’ve attended a lot of tire events over the years. It’s always the same old thing when a manufacturer wants to show off the latest and greatest rubber. Three things are guaranteed at an event like this. First, there is a presentation highlighting the advanced design and technology of the new tire. Second, there will be supervised track time. And finally, a known inferior (and usually out of date) competitor’s tire is brought along to highlight how great this new tire is.
Infiniti may develop its own version of Nissan’s famous GT-R sports car. Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Renault and Nissan was asked if Infiniti would tap into the existing products through Nissan and use the brilliant GT-R sports car platform for a high- performance Infiniti.

As Lexus’ GS enters it’s fourth generation, the car has been redesigned to be sportier and more focused on the driving experience. The GS350 is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 producing 305-hp and 274 lb-ft of torque. It has a 0-62 mph time of 5.7 seconds and on a sad note for the V8 lovers, the GS460 has been discontinued.
Chrysler has released pricing for the high performance 300 SRT8, with the new model starting from $47,995. The 2012 model sits half an inch lower than non-SRT models, has a new front fascia and grill, along with body-colored side cladding, four-inch exhaust tips and a new rear fascia. You already know it will come with aggressive 20-inch rims and the available Black Chrome Package adds black chrome rims, black upper and lower grille surrounds and a rear valance strip.
