After failing to sell twice on eBay, the used-car retailer stepped in with an unbelievable offer. http://www.thedrive.com/sheetmetal/15948/carmax-is-offering-20000-for-a-1996-honda-accord

This is top notch advertising...

Damn, guess I'll go there as well with my peugeot, must be worth at least 10 grand

[]Yves Vds

That is really cool! I am guessing that $20k will barely dent their yearly marketing budget anyway.

The Italian exotic carmaker has revealed its latest concept car: a sleek, electrified vehicle. There's no question that the future is electric and the days of the naturally-aspirated combustion engine are numbered. This concept undoubtly previews the successor to the aging Aventador. It's safe to speculate that the new flagship supercar will be powered by a hybrid setup similar to the 918 Spyder, LaFerrari and P1. It's unclear whether it will retain the V12 or downsize.

I'm so tired of the 2JZ

[]Yves Vds

As much as I love the 2JZ, I think it is out of place in a Rolls Royce. I would have gone with a 1GZ-FE from the Toyota Century. Also, the engine bay looks so empty...

What a trip!

On my miata ots between the turbo and the coils...
One made it a killer out the gate and on the straight....
The other makes it feel like it dreves on rails...
Tough choice, could i guess?

[]Robert Sixto

Favorite on the 6 was the upgraded rear sway bar, really changed the cornering feel on it. On the FC, it's a tougher call, I did so much all at once, but one thing I really like is the Mazdaspeed steering wheel. Just feels good, and it's nice to look at.

[]Yves Vds

I got a few mods on my car. The supercharger was definitely a nice addition, but I am not completely done with it yet (mapping to be done). So at the moment, it's a toss-up between the shortshifter and the TRD swaybars. Both these mods changed the driving experience.

[]Greg Moore

Gotta love that blower whine

Definitely something you don't hear all the time.

Tough call! I think the biggest one-time joy came from my Tein springs, but I've gotten more long-term enjoyment from my Pioneer 7" touchscreen.

There's a lot, but here's my top 3.

1. Adaptronic ECU - well supported, lots of features, and easy to use.

2. Synapse 50mm Wastegate - no diaphragm to fail means it's durable, and big enough to control boost on a big turbo rx7 without going to dual waste gates

3. Greddy Type S dampers - monotube, adjustable, comfy on the street, capable on the track.

For a mere $2,000 a month, you can rent a Porsche on-demand from your smartphone and drive it like you stole it. Dubbed the Porsche Passport , you can take one of the many vehicles from the German carmaker's lineup on a road trip, weekend cruise or your daily commute. An additional $1,000 per month gives you unlimited access to higher-end models including the 911 and Panamera. The only catch? The service is currently limited

[]Brandon Marquis

Uh, Atlanta is 160 miles away, so yea! I might have tried this for 1 month, before buying the Cayman. Now that I have one, I would only consider if the base price could get me into a 911.

Just weeks after Bugatti set the record from 0-400 kph (that's 249 mph) and back down to naught in the Chiron, Koenigsegg beat it with ease. The Chiron took 42 seconds but the Agera RS only took 36 seconds. That is some serious speed and even more serious stopping power.

Gotta give it up to the little guys, underdogs. I like the fact this is not even their latest model.

VERY impressive! Looks a bit squirrely, I imagine the Chiron would be more planted/stable at speed.. but I'd rather have the Agera RS.

Does this mean that turbos are here to stay? I guess my next Porsche will need to be turbo'ed...Or, that chassis must be worth its weight in gold.

Considering they're all turbocharged now, I'd say yes.

6-7 grand is just unbelievable.. how it stays so planted putting 700hp to the pavement is nothing short of engineering excellence.

The Italian automaker has revealed its replacement for the California T. Like the outgoing model, the Portofino is a hardtop convertible with the same twin-turbo V8 but packs 592 hp—40 more than its predecessor. How do you think it looks?

After months of teasing the world, BMW has finally released photos of its new M5: Like its predecessor, the sports sedan will be powered by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 but now produces an eye-watering 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque.  The F90 will be the first BMW M car available with xDrive, BMW's all-wheel-drive system. The new M5 has also managed to shed nearly 300 pounds compared to the outgoing F10 model

Drove down to Pebble Beach yesterday to check out some of the exquisite cars seen only this time of year. On the way there, I spotted a trio of Ferrari F50s, countless Porsche 918 Spyders and the only Koenigsegg Regera in North America. Sadly, I wasn't able to take any photos of those as I was driving but here are some photos I did manage to nab of the cars that were on display: Cadillac Cyclone Concept

Lots of new cars were unveiled this week. Here's a quick recap of what you might have missed. Audi A8 The fourth-generation full-size sedan is packed with technology. The 2018 A8 debuts Audi's new design language which will trickle down the rest of the lineup. Inside, the cockpit boasts a near-buttonless center console. The rear resembles the Lincoln Continental but is clearly much more refined. The A8 will go head-to-head with the recently refreshed 7 Series and

I hope Hyundai replaces Honda in the performance segment - hearts and minds, that is. What Honda is doing now is not cutting it. Love it or hate it, at least this is another performance car we can discuss and drive. More hatches the merrier. The new Accord is pretty ugly. Or maybe they wanted the Civic R to look better by comparison (its not helping).

[]Brandon Dubose

I like how for over a decade all anyone has done (in the us) is talk crap on hyundai but as soon as they release the N series they expect Hyundai to look the other way and give them this amazing car. lol

[]Basir Khan

For a while, I was one of these people. Hyundai/Kia have really upped their game in terms of looks, quality and reliability in the last decade. I've sat in some of the newer models and came out genuinely impressed. At this point, anyone who disregards them is doing so out of spite.

[]Ernie Szots

Or, doing so for reasons like this:

http://abc7.com/automotive/hyundai-kia-recall-14m-vehicles;-engines-can-fail/1846843/

I don't think it's all about spite. For me, they still don't pass the kick-the-tires test. They don't feel as quality as Toyota and Honda in just about any capacity. That N just looks like a complete Golf rip-off.

[]Basir Khan

Recalls are a dime a dozen. Just today, Honda issued a recall on the Accord – http://globalnews.ca/news/3597719/honda-recall-accord-vehicle-batteries-catch-fire/

[]Ernie Szots

I agree; I don't know of a car that hasn't had a recall, but I think a recall on the engines failing is a little different than a recall on bad battery sensors.

Aside from that, for me, there's a big difference in the feeling/driving of a Sonata vs Accord. IMHO, they're going in the right direction, but still have a way to go.

[]Brandon Dubose

I remember how crappy stuff was before and nobody can deny that. When they came out with the tiburon though, it was a turn in the right direction. Its only been uphill since which is an *amazing* feat compared to how many issues other brands have had over the past decade too. Thats one of the big reasons I love showing up with a tib to track events. It always starts with laughing and ends with people having a different opinion.

Ps, im so excited to see more about that Aston. I see some very interesting things going on with it.

[]Thomas Komar

I would still take the GTI any day, I can't get away even if this one is faster. The GTI is just a gift from God in my eyes :)
