    2014 Porsche 911 Targa

    It may boast 21st century technology, but the 2014 Porsche 911 Targa still retains its 1960s cool. The entry level is good for 350-hp and a 4.6 second sprint, while the Targa 4S bags a 400-hp 3.8-liter engine that will fire you to over 180mph, the first 60 in just over four seconds. All are all-wheel drive and all rock the iconic Targa roof bar.

     
  • 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

    2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

    Utterly stunning, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is the company’s fourth-gen supercar, with a 6.2-liter V8 supercharged engine that will deliver 625-hp. At least. Opt for a 7-speed manual or an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission, with upshifts even faster than those of the 911. Chevy’s active fuel management system will keep your gas mileage somewhat reasonable, but, we guess if you’re driving around in one of these things, you’re not really going to be too concerned about that.

    2014 Camaro Z28

    So badass, it probably shouldn’t even be road legal. But boy, are we glad it is. The 2014 Camaro Z28 has outrun the likes of the 911 Carrera S and Lamborghini’s Murcielago LP640 thanks to its 7-liter LS7 V8 engine that spits 505-hp and 481 lb-ft of torque. Its front Pirelli PZero Trofeo R tires are said to be the widest of any production car on the planet.

    2014 Lexus IS F Sport

    Designed to out-muscle, out-run and out-style the likes of Cadillac and BMW, the all-new 2014 Lexus IS F Sport range looks – and performs – as though it’s been injected with steroids. We took these bad boys out on the track and man, do we love it. Two engine sizes are available: 2.5-liter (IS 250 F) and a 3.5-liter (IS 350 F). Suspension has been sharpened, wheels magnified and the longer wheel base enhances its athletic stance while also providing …cotinue reading

    ABT Audi R8 V10

    Speedier, sportier, stronger, sleeker, slicker and stylisher. Okay, we know the last one isn’t a proper word, but you get our drift. The ABT Audi R8 V10 sports a 5.2-liter FSI V10 with 600 hp that will jet-propel you to 62 mph in a staggering three and a half seconds. It’ll peak just shy of 200 mph and rides on a choice of two gorgeous sets of 19-inch alloys backed by lowered, strengthened suspension.

    Aston Martin V12 Vantage S

    A highly evolved AM28 engine with CNC-machined combustion chambers and hollow camshafts, 565 hp, nought to sixty in less than four and a top speed of 205 mph. The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S has also shed 55 pounds, gained a gear and rides on all-new ten-spoke 19-inch alloys. James Bond is pretty darn excited about this one, and so are we.

    2014 KTM GT X-Bow
