Review: 2021 Lexus IS 300 AWD – Sharper Looks, Still A Good Value

Recently, we were lent the brand-new 2021 Lexus IS 300 AWD for a couple of days. When we took delivery, we immediately noticed some nice upgrades over the previous, 2020 Lexus lineup. We wouldn’t say these are significant upgrades, but rather the slow-and-steady, gradually-over-time type, which has proven to be a successful strategy for the Japanese luxury brand.

KTM’s Little Carbon Beast Designed For GT2: The X-Bow GTX

KTM has announced the next iteration of their X-Bow, designed to compete in SRO GT2 later this year: the X-Bow GTX. Looking slightly less spaceship-like than the regular X-Bow, and a smidge more McLaren-like, the GTX weighs just 2200 lbs. and pumps out 600 horsepower from a 2.5-liter 5-cylinder turbo sourced from their friends just 180 KM away in Ingolstadt: Audi.

Review: 2020 Lexus RC F — Underrated All-Around Performer?

The F in F Division stands for “flagship”, as well as the legendary Fuji Speedway, their chief test facility for all performance vehicles. Because of this, it should be no surprise that their current F car, the 2020 RC F, provides a thrilling experience with great power and excellent handling. Though, it kind of is a surprise. Lexus is still burned into most consumers’ judgement as a brand of luxury, value, a smooth ride, and generally not being engineered for fun. They’re more known for small SUVs and big sedans engineered for, well, normies. The RC F on the other hand, we’re happy to report, marches to the beat of a different, more performance-oriented drum.

Why Making A Street-Driven 991.1 Porsche GT3 More Cup Car-Like Is A Solid Decision

The GT3 is the closest one can get to a loud, stiff, purpose-built 911 GT3 Cup Car without having to put on a helmet, slither into a roll cage, and snap a 6-point harness together. Or is it? What if one wanted to go a tad further and build something even closer to a Cup Car, to see how much they could tolerate before it became too much to bear for street driving?
