Due to sell as a late 2014 model, the 2015 Ford Mustang has been revealed – and boy does it look sexy with it’s modern-yet-retro design. The GT version will have a 5.0-L V8 expected to make at least 420 hp and 396 lb-ft of torque, and the other engine options include a 3.7-L V6 and 2.3-L Turbocharged 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine. Not much revealed form Ford in terms of curb weight, price, or performance, which makes it a bit hard to calculate its bang-for-your-buck factor, but hopefully that keeps up with the design improvements. We’re excited to hear more.

Porsche just revealed their latest model, the all-wheel drive four door Macan, which in essence seems to be a little brother of the Cayenne . Very similar in design to the Cayenne, but shrunken down a bit – we’d have to speculate that it’ll behave even more like a sports car than it’s big bro. Considering it’s only offered as an S or Turbo versions, the Macan definitely has sportiness in mind. Yet, with room to hold your golf clubs and kids in the back, the Turbo packs a 400 hp twin-turbo V6 and is capable of hitting 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. The Macan starts at $50k for the S and $72k for the Turbo.

Alfa Romeo plans to re-enter the US market in spring 2014 with the new 4C. Starting around $55k, the 4C is a small lightweight sports car with a chassis made of a single-piece carbon fiber body and a 240hp / 260 lb-ft torque inline 4 cylinder engine. While that’s not a ton of power, the mid-engine layout and rear wheel drive promise excellent handling and the 4C’s aluminum and carbon fiber diet allows for a quick 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds. With limited distribution to Maserati dealers, it’ll be interesting to see how close the 4C actually sells to its base price when they hit US shores… and we’d love to see it battle against the Porsche Cayman.

The BMW 3 Series coupe is no more. Or is it? Instead of creating a new 3 Series Coupe, BMW launched their two-door into its own model line, the 4 Series. Unfortunately, with the model change came no additional power – the 435i is still packing a 300hp twin-turbo as did the 335i. However, this time around the coupe stands further apart from its sedan sibling with a wider chassis, and sportier suspension that is both lower and stiffer. If you’re still upset about the foregoing of a power increase, keep in mind the 4 Series shaved 45 lbs off its predecessor while getting bigger and better looking. In addition to the 435i, the 4 Series is available at 240hp as the 428i, and both models offer the option of 4-wheel drive (428xi and 425xi) . Next to be released will be the hardtop convertible. $41-$50k.

Owning a Ferrari is awesome. Being a guitar legend is a status very few achieve. And if your name happens to be Eric Clapton, apparently you can create your own custom Ferrari in collaboration with Pininfarina and Maranello’s own engineers. The rock legend’s very own Ferrari SP12-EC (yes the EC stands for Eric Clapton) is built off the 458 Italia Platform and pays homage to Clapton’s favorite Ferrari model, the BB512i – which is most noticeable by the two-tone exterior of the car. You’ll also notice some unique touches such as Enzo headlights and custom front & rear intakes.Read the full story at the Official Ferrari Magazine
If you had your heart set on a new Corvette Stingray, but would prefer to tap into that V8 power with the top down – The 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible is due to hit dealers in the 4th quarter of 2013. The top is made with a tree-ply material and features a glass rear window, which should make it feel less like a “ragtop” when the weather doesn’t permit going topless. With 450hp and 450 lb-ft of torque, this convertible offers no shortage of muscle… and we imagine no shortage of fun either.
We’ve done several posts on the latest 911 Carrera body style (the 991) and we’re now drooling over the new Porsche 911 Turbo. Power from the twin-turbocharged 3.8 L 6 cylinder engine is plentiful – 520 hp for the Turbo and 560 hp for the Turbo S, allowing the S version to hit 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds. For years, the 911 has had a rear wing that deploys at high speed – but the latest turbo has a three stage active aerodynamic system, with an adjusting front spoiler and rear wing. The large air scoops behind the doors will also help the Turbo standout, and the car certainly does not disappoint the eyes.
Porsche just revealed their newest racing car, the 2013 911 RSR. The RSR is built with the body of the newest 911 Carrera model (the 991) and it is incredibly awesome looking. While it maintains the classic 911 curves, the huge rear spoiler and agressive front air-intakes quickly remind you that this is a 460 hp track car. During this racing season, the Porsche 911 RSR will be sporting number 92 and piloted by Porsche works drivers Marc Lieb (Germany) and Richard Lietz (Austria). Go 92!
