Well, it’s not like Mazda has a lot of roadster, duh… Anyways, it is just an update; not a spanking new model, so calm down.

Porsche Brings Back The Spirit Of 356 With 911 Speedster Concept

In addition to bringing its first sports car back to life and giving its electric sports sedan a name – among many other things, Porsche is marking its 70 years in existence with a Porsche 911 Speedster Concept. Porsche described the open-top sports car as a “road ready study” and so, it is very likely it will make it into production. The question is: when? Though it is worthy to note that Porsche is still undecided about this car, but it is sure a hint of the potential series-production version which, if materialized, will only be presented in 2019.

Porsche Brought Its First Sports Car Back To Life As A Show Car

Eight months is how long it takes for Porsche to bring back its first sports car, the Porsche 356 “No. 1” Roadster, back to life. For a car this old, restoring it to its original form was a daunting task. Undaunted, Porsche Museum took a 3-D scan of the actual classic before superimposing the virtual model onto the scanned design drawings from 1948.

Classic Volkswagen Beetle Reimagined Into A Drool Worthy Roadster

If you are a huge fan of the classic Volkswagen Beetle, chances are you have heard of German-based Memminger. If you haven’t, I bet you will, starting with the Memminger Beetle Roadster 2.7 because, this thing is a definition of beauty. Now, I am not a huge fan of air-cooled Beetle. I never thought it was a cool car. A Rabbit is a cool car, not the Beetle. Guess I just have a thing for straight lines. But, but… this Memminger Beetle Roadster 2.7 here changes everything.

Polaris Slingshot Grand Touring LE Is Basically An Option-loaded Slingshot

From the front, it looks like Polaris has put a roadster on the road, but it is in fact, a three-wheeler, or more specifically, a new, more luxe variant of the brand’s Slingshot. The 2018 Polaris Slingshot Grand Touring LE, as it is known as, is essentially a slightly more equipped Slingshot featuring the previously optional Slingshade roof, and quilted Comfort Seats. In addition, a color-matched rear fender is thrown in to go with the Indy Red accented Matte Cloud Gray paint job, while on the inside, it is outfitted with Slingshot’s Ride Command with navigation infotainment system. And oh, it also gets a limited edition graphics package too, as seen in the official press images. Continue reading Polaris Slingshot Grand Touring LE Is Basically An Option-loaded Slingshot

Nissan Replaces A 370Z’s Wheels With Skis And Tracks, Calls It 370Zki

Do you own a 370Z? Yes? But can your 370Z take on the powdered ground? Probably – if you have snow tires/snow chain on its rolling stock, but I bet it will not be as maneuverable as this 370Z here. Specially constructed for this year Chicago Motor Show, this snow-going 370Z sports a head turning geometric pattern wrap, yellow tinted headlights and shares much of the regular 370Z features, including the a 3.7L V6 motor that puts out a healthy 332 horsepower, 7-speed auto gearbox, cloth power-folding roof et cetera, but the similarity does not continue beyond the drivetrain; this snow beast here is in effect, a snowmobile – thanks to the skis and tracks it now rolls on. So, you still think your 370Z’s good for the heavily powdered mountains? Well, think again. Continue reading Nissan Replaces A 370Z’s Wheels With Skis And Tracks, Calls It 370Zki

Tesla’s 2nd-Gen Roadster Wows With Sleek Lines And Supercar Performance

After devoting three quarter of the time to Tesla Semi at the recent Tesla unveiling, Elon Musk finally revealed the new follow up the original Tesla Roadster called, ermmm, Tesla Roadster. Sporting a wide stance and a suspiciously Corvette-ish/NSX-ish front end, the brand new Tesla Roadster is as sleek as you would have expect from Tesla, or any roadster for that matter. Propelling the vehicle are three motors: one driving the front wheels and two driving the rear wheels. The motors are powered by a 200 kWh battery system that offers an out-of-this-world 620 miles (998 kilometers) range on a single charge… at highway speeds.

Ex-Factory Works 1958 Porsche 550A Spyder To Go Under The Hammer

Anyone with money can afford themselves a race car, but sometimes even with all the money in the world, not everyday you get a chance to own a piece of motoring history. Granted, not everyone is a fan of Porsche but if you are, the good news is, this is the “not the everyday,” this is the Ex-Factory Works Team Le Mans 1958 Porsche 550A Spyder. Besides the obvious freaking dope aesthetic, evergreen aesthetic, this beautiful classic race car was a Le Mans and Nürburgring podium finisher and perhaps more importantly, it is the most original examples in existence.

Daihatsu Copen Turned ” Mini GT-R”: Blasphemy Or Awesomeness?

We heard Japanese Liberty Walk have been turning out pretty crazy custom rides with their custom aero kits. A look at the company’s latest creation, what we heard might just be true. The custom ride in question, called Nissan GT-K, is based on a K-class Daihatsu Copen. For the uninitiated, Copen is a tiny roadster that, IMHO, barely fits a grown-ass man. Words cannot emphasize how small this car is and if you knew how small it is, you will agree to it into a mini Godzilla is something rather intriguing. Btw, you heard right. Liberty Walks had a Daihatsu Copen slapped on with some pretty serious aeros, turning a previously cute roadster into a menacing mini Nissan GT-R.
