Yes, Please! New 911 GT3 RS Debuts

At $224k, the GT3 RS ain’t cheap, but try to think of another car that does what this does for less.  We’re pretty sure you can’t think of a car that is better for less, so we’d say the 911 GT3 RS qualifies as good value.

First Look: 2010 Hyundai Tucson

The previous-generation Tucson, while trusty and capable, looked rather odd and never really separated itself from the more popular Kia Sportage that it shared (everything) with. This all changes for 2010, though. The new Tucson is more powerful, more economical, and much more appealing on the eyes.

First Look: 2011 Infiniti M

When we think of competitors for the BMW 5-Series, things like the Mercedes E-Class, Jaguar XF, and Audi A6 come to mind immediately, and sadly, the Infiniti M is casually overlooked in most cases. This was mostly due, in part, to an anemic V-8 mill, out-of-date interior materials and technology, and old styling. This all changes, though, as Infiniti has just debuted the sexy new M — in both M37 and M56 flavors — at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

First Look: 2011 Ford Fiesta

The Fiesta has been a success story in Europe for many, many years, and it seems like America’s biggest concern is how the Fiesta’s design would change once the car was brought to our shores. Well, as you can see by the photos, it’s slightly different, but in a way looks like a natural evolution of the Fiesta. Consider it a mid-cycle refresh, if you will.
