Which car is faster: the Porsche 911 GT2 or the Corvette ZR1? These two cars go head-to-head in a performance race to see which is quicker in a mile.
As I am currently putting together this web video blog, I am overlooking the beautiful hills and horizon of the unique American city known as San Francisco. So given this week's blog theme and my current city of residence I found it wholly appropriate to pay tribute to another of my favorite American muscle car classics, the timeless Ford Mustang GT...
The Ford Mustang has a rich 40 year history in American culture. The Mustang's humble origins were that of a "secretary" car that was transformed into a performance vehicle by racing designer Carroll Shelby. Since … Read more
The new Aston Martin V12 Vantage is put to a road test by reviewers from the U.K.'s Autocar. The road test even includes a brief race against the Porsche GT2.
The Vantage, which sports a 6-liter V-12, made its debut at the 2009 Geneva auto show.
Check out this Web video to see which car wins and what the reviewer really thinks about the Vantage.
The 435 horsepower, six-cylinder engine tops out at about 190 mph.
From hairstyles to hypnosis, Patti Stanger, CEO of matchmaking service Millionaire Club 123, knows exactly what it takes to make a match.
I caught up with Stanger who also stars in the reality series "The Millionaire Matchmaker" while she was promoting her book "Become Your Own Matchmaker" for advice on the best cars for attracting girls.
Hands down, Stanger recommends a Bentley Continental GT. "It says, I have money and will shower you with gifts and attention," says Stanger. On top of it, it says classy.
Other top contenders include the Mercedes Maybach, which is even more expensive and impressive than the Bentley. "It says Gazillionaire," explains Stanger.
If you're going for the "hip, cool guy" look, consider the Aston Martin DB9 (watch this CNET TV video of the Aston Martin DB9 Volante). It's two steps above the Porsche, said to Stanger, which is typically driven by the 55-year old going through a midlife crisis.
However, she said she's not a fan of Ferraris of any sort--the typical go-to sports car--which screams "little dick" to Stanger.
"If you want to be off-the-beaten-path with a real sports car, you get a Viper," says Stanger.
Thousands of Mustang enthusiasts from all over the world will converge in Birmingham, Ala., on April 17--officially declared "Mustang Day" by the state of Alabama--to celebrate the 45th anniversary of an American icon: the Ford Mustang.
Ford and the Mustang Club of America join the celebration of America's favorite pony car with a four-day celebration at the Barber Motorsports Park. The event is expected to draw more than 2,500 Mustang enthusiasts and their beloved steeds, as well as hundreds of thousands of spectators, Ford said in a press release.
On the eve of the 45th anniversary, … Read more
GT cars, the stuff that posters on the walls of high school boys' bedrooms are made of, made a strong showing at the 2009 Geneva auto show, with new examples from Aston Martin, Ferrari, and Lamborghini, among others. The variety we found at the show included standard gas engines, hybrids, and full electric versions, and all boast astounding performance figures.
