Preview: 2016 BMW M4 GTS

While it’s not uncommon for manufacturers to take their standard high performance offerings and bump up the capability a bit more for a limited production special edition, the BMW M4 GTS looks to be something particularly interesting, dropping a substantial amount of weight, adding a healthy dose of power, and gaining some legitimately track-oriented uprated components that point toward the M4 GTS being the most potent road-going M car in the company’s history.

Preview: 2015 Porsche 911 GTS

Back in March, Porsche announced it was reviving the GTS badge on the Boxster and Cayman models, the first to wear the emblem since the 1963 Carrera 904. Now the automaker has decided to apply the GTS treatment to the venerable 911 with four new iterations of the sports car that offer more power, uprated suspension, additional features, unique aesthetics, and perhaps most importantly to some, a more viable alternative for those who want a 991 GT3 but demand a manual gearbox.

Update: 2015 Porsche Boxster GTS Driven on the Street and Track

As the first Porsche with its engine in the middle to wear the GTS badge since the 904 Carrera of 1963, the Boxster GTS supplants the S model as the top spec version of the drop top. Still often regarded as the 911’s little brother, the latest iteration of the Boxster and Cayman sees a new level of performance prowess. But can this new, sharper Boxster GTS able to outshine the venerable 911 Carrera?

Driven: 2014 SRT Viper TA

The term “beast” gets thrown around almost casually in the automotive industry, as do the terms “track focused” and “high performance”. But if you’re seeking the pure definition of these terms rather than some marketing line, Chrysler’s SRT division has a car for you. Limited to just 159 examples, the Viper TA – which stands for “Time Attack” – is a road course weapon of the highest degree, riding the line between street and track so tightly that one is left to ponder where “sports car” ends and “race car with a stereo” begins.

Preview: 2015 Porsche Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS

Not long ago, the Boxster and Cayman got saddled with the reputation as the Porsche 911 for buyers who couldn’t quite afford a Porsche 911. When the latest generation of the 911’s mid-engined little brother was unveiled two years ago, that conversation started to change – in some ways, the Boxster and Cayman were seen as even better handling cars than their 911 brethren. Still, a lack of horsepower and the sophisticated technologies offered on 911 has kept the Boxster and Cayman a notch below in the Porsche lineup. However, that line is starting to blur with the introduction of the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS.

First Look: 2013 SRT Viper GTS Launch Edition

The end of production on the second-generation Dodge Viper a few years ago was a sad thing. Its intoxicating blend of old school muscle car brutality and sinister looks made it an American sports car icon. And as big a deal as the demise of the last Viper was, the birth of the new SRT Viper is even more so, especially when SRT (remember, it’s not a Dodge any more) crafts them like this. In honor of the new-for-2013 Viper, SRT is releasing this, the Viper GTS Launch Edition.
