Putting Up the Roof on the $274,500 Porsche 911 Speedster Is Surprisingly Involved Putting Up the Roof on the $274,500 Porsche 911 Speedster Is Surprisingly Involved

The production 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster was finally revealed last month as a GT3-powered Porsche 911 with a custom topless body style referencing the classic 356 Speedster of the 1950s.

Here's What the Cayenne Coupe Would Look Like If It Wasn't Such a Big SUV Here's What the Cayenne Coupe Would Look Like If It Wasn't Such a Big SUV

One of the problems (and there are many) with reshaping a modern SUV into a “coupe” variant, like with the new 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe, is that the minimized roofline only makes the body look that much more awkwardly tall and bloated. But with the magical powers of photoshop, we can fix that.

You Can Now Get the 6.2-Liter V8 in More, Cheaper Chevy Silverado Trims You Can Now Get the 6.2-Liter V8 in More, Cheaper Chevy Silverado Trims

The entire concept of offering multiple trim levels for a vehicle is so consumers have choice over what they can buy for the money they have, which is why it’s a smart move that GM is making its 6.2-liter V8 engine available on three more Chevy Silverado trims. That also makes it a little cheaper to get the big V8.

BMW Is Somehow Doing Two More 500 Horsepower SUVs BMW Is Somehow Doing Two More 500 Horsepower SUVs

The 2020 BMW X3 M Competition and X4 M Competition were just a warning shot, the first wave of an onslaught of 500 horsepower super SUVs we may not be prepared for. And there’s two more now, with the 2020 BMW X5 M50i and BMW X7 M50i. More power, more SUVs, more large Bimmer people-movers on the way.

The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Doubles Down on Absurdity but It’s Fun and Fast The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Doubles Down on Absurdity but It’s Fun and Fast

The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe takes one of the sportiest crossovers on the market and gives it a slight redesign that better reflects the speed its 541 horsepower twin-turbo V8 delivers. It’s also more expensive than a normal Cayenne, because something isn’t stylish if you aren’t paying more for it.

We thought we had already gaped too much at the new Porsche 935 limited edition car, a modern version of the flat-nosed 911-based race car from the 1970s, painted in its classic Martini livery back when it was revealed. But now there are six more liveries to gape at.

The 2020 Audi A4 Redesign Removes Its One Unique Characteristic The 2020 Audi A4 Redesign Removes Its One Unique Characteristic

There’s an all-new BMW 3 Series out, which means it’s no real surprise that Audi went back and redrew some parts of the new 2020 Audi A4. The last time the car was redesigned it got notched headlights, which was a big departure for the car at the time. The 2020 car gets rid of those, and now it just looks like the…

It turns out, a very common type of car boot is also super easy…

The Chevrolet Trailblazer Is Back as a Compact Crossover: Report The Chevrolet Trailblazer Is Back as a Compact Crossover: Report

With General Motors already flushing the Chevrolet Blazer name down the drain with a disappointing crossover, we should have seen the same sorry fate coming for the Chevy Trailblazer name, too, which will reportedly return as a compact crossover around the size of a Chevy Trax. When will it end?
