    Exploring Kammback History and Examples—and Why the Design Makes Sense
    The term “Kammback” refers to an automotive body style with a roofline that tapers downward toward the car’s rear before being cut off abruptly. Early studies found that a car with a teardrop shape yielded the best aerodynamics, but it necessitated a body that was impractically long. Further experimentation showed that the end of the teardrop could be lopped off without a significant drag increase; the vertical surface created turbulence that effectively filled in for the missi

    One-percenters take notice: Lamborghini has launched its most powerful drop-top supercar yet, and if you haven’t already bought one, you’re simply too late. All 19 of the 2021 Lamborghini Sián Roadsters have been spoken for, meaning it is officially sold out at a cost of $3,297,632 apiece. Finito, comprendere?

    Mazda is bringing forced induction back to its compact models with the arrival of the 2021 Mazda 3 2.5 Turbo trim. As expected, following an early peek at the turbo 3, the latest addition to the 3 family (that means the sedan and hatchback) cribs its turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine from its 6, CX-5, and CX-9 siblings. As in its crossover kin, the forced induction four-pot produces a mighty 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque when fed a steady diet of 93 octane (the 6 sedan ma

    15 Memorable Yet Forgotten Targa-Top Cars to Enjoy
    The introduction of the new 2021 Porsche 911 Targa got us thinking about other targa-top cars. Technically, they can’t be called targas, since Porsche owns the term as a trademark. But there are plenty of vehicles that use what is widely called the targa top, with the rear window-frame fixed in place and a removable roof panel above the passenger compartment. Here are 15 cars with targa tops you might have forgotten about—or might not have known about at all.

    The Mercedes-Benz User Experience, or MBUX for short, has had a wobbly reception. It’s Mercedes’ newest infotainment setup and is packed to bursting with a ton of features and pizazz, but it’s slightly more convoluted than competing systems from other luxury automakers. (Many of which, we should point out, have plenty of infotainment issues of their own—we’re looking at you, Lexus, and your little touchpad thingie.) But, for now, let’s set aside MBUX’s c

    Lexus has updated its flagship LS sedan for the Japanese home market—so while it’s not exactly the model we’re sure to be sent soon, it offers a good preview of the forthcoming refreshed U.S.-market LS luxury four-door. Of note, the LS is not an all-new model, but rather the sort of honing of an existing product typical of a mid-cycle update.
    The LS’s changes may be minor, but Lexus’s focus on details, particularly the interior materials (and the techniques used to

    At the 2019 Geneva Auto Show a little over a year ago, Audi showed us the Q4 E-Tron concept, a preview of its upcoming compact electric SUV.

    If you’ve ever owned a classic car that’s no longer in production, then you know as well as anyone that finding parts can be a major concern. Of course, if you need an alternator for a Toyota Camry built in the 1980s, that’s probably not going to be tough to find. But what if you’re looking for parts for your third- or fourth-generation Toyota Supra, a car built in far fewer numbers?

    What would happen if Sherlock Holmes and criminal mastermind Professor James Moriarity set aside their differences to create a car? The two famous characters from Arthur Conan Doyle’s crime novels operate on opposite sides of the law but share a passion for puzzles, so would make sense if they designed something like the 2021 Rolls-Royce Wraith Kryptos. Make no mistake, the Kryptos (thanks to its secret messaging) is as much an enigma as it is a means of transportation.

    The Willys MB Jeep (and its direct civilian descendants) gets all the glory, but there are plenty of military vehicles that play important roles well away from the front line. Think about the trucks that deliver fuel to frontline tactical vehicles, fight fires, or transport tanks and APCs…they get less of the glory but are a critical part of any battlefield success.

    As the 1920s drew to a close, automakers were looking to make their products more powerful. Luxury cars were getting bigger and more opulent, high-speed highways were opening up, and motorists wanted to drive faster. Cadillac, already well-established as a luxury marque, had been using V-8 engines since 1915; in fact, it was the first automaker to field a successful mass-produced V-8. The company had just introduced its latest V-8 for the 1929 Series 341, a 5.6-liter (341 cubic inch) engine that

It’s usually an evolution of the same racing icons we’ve seen time and again, carving their way through many of the same handful of corners present throughout history. There’s usually a whole platoon of photographers and videographers on hand to capture every turn, crash, pitstop, and finish, so little is left to the imagination. Not so with Dakar
