454-HP BMW M3 CS Is Coming in 2018, Report Says - The Drive
It's poised to be the most powerful M3 ever made.
You might not realize it based on all the hubbub surrounding the BMW M2 these days, but the German automaker has not forgotten about the bigger M3 and M4. According to a report from Bimmer Today, BMW is preparing to launch a 454-horsepower M3 CS. That figure would make it the most powerful series production M3 ever made. (Yes, the M4 GTS makes almost 500 with its fancy water injection system, but that's not billed as an M3 anymore, now is it?)

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia | In-Depth Model Review | Car and Driver
An Italian underdog takes on formidable, established players—and triumphs.
When Alfa Romeo announced its return to the North American mass market, we admit to having been skeptical. In our defense, the launch of the Giulia took longer than expected, but it was well worth the wait. From its flagrantly sporty exterior to its chic cabin, the Giulia exudes Italian flavor, even in its base trim. To live up to its looks and heritage, an Italian car must also provide a thrilling driving experience, and the Giulia delivers there, too. Its agile handling and gutsy turbocharged engine make it an enthusiast’s delight. To help it gain a foothold in the very competitive sports-sedan marketplace, the Alfa Romeo undercuts most rivals on price, but its unknown reliability, let alone reports of engine and transmission hiccups, build-quality issues, and the brand’s sullied reputation in Europe—remains Alfa’s biggest obstacle to success.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon First Drive | Review | Car and Driver
Bang! It's over.
“Come to Indy and drive this purpose-built, street-legal drag-racing car,” they said.
The lawn isn’t getting mowed. Floors aren’t being mopped. Dishes remain piled up. We are zeroed in on tackling the most powerful production car America has ever produced.
We’re talking about the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Most of its steamy details were divulged over a 12-week roll-out leading up to the New York auto show this past April. But, to recap: Demons come off the assembly line sporting a wide-body kit, a drag-strip-tuned adaptive suspension, and an engine that makes 808 horsepower. This supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 is an evolution of the Hellcat’s 707-pony Hemi but with beefed-up internals and a larger, 2.7-liter rotary-screw blower (up from 2.4 liters) from supplier IHI, tuned to make 14.5 pounds of boost. The car comes on four drag radials, but the eight-speed ZF 8HP automatic turns only the rear wheels. Speaking of transmissions, this one features the first transmission brake on a production car—more on that in a bit—as well as a few other drag-racing tricks.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Driven: This Muscle Car Sends Rivals Straight to Hell - The Drive
After months of hype, we drive Dodge's unholy, record-setting beast on the drag strip. 
2018 Challenger SRT Demon: Fast as advertised
A first for me, after two decades of reviewing cars: I never took a single curve in the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, unless you count a swing back to the starting line at Lucas Oil Speedway’s dragstrip. Yet I feel perfectly qualified to give the Demon a big thumbs-up. Because, let’s be honest: No one is buying an 840-horsepower Demon to tackle a winding road course or climb Pikes Peak. (If you love Dodge Challengers, and hope to lasso Camaros and Mustangs on curves, try the $72,590 Challenger SRT Widebody instead.)

Listen to this 3-Rotor Mazda RX-8 Rally Car Sing - The Drive
Watch this crazy rotary-powered Mazda get sideways and tear apart the countryside.
What engine creates the best exhaust note? Is it a burbly American V-8, screaming V-10, or something not so conventional? The debate for the best sounding car rages on, but one particular engine has held its own since the beginning—the Wankel rotary engine. For those unaware, listen to a Mazda 767b race car and you'll understand why the high-revving, low displacement engine is revered by vehicular audiophiles. They're apparently great engines for rally cars too, as New Zealand rally champion Marcus van Klink has dropped a rotary engine into his custom Mazda RX-8 and is ripping it up in the NZ countryside.

Camaro goes nuclear: Chevrolet escalates the muscle car war | Ars Technica
Racing-derived dampers, a fist full of aero and a Superman V8.
We live in strange times. At one end of the automotive universe right now are pure electric cars rapidly approaching mainstream usability for anyone within a conventional gas tank's distance of a latte. Development of autonomous cars is plainly visible. Pickup trucks outsell everything in America and yet, there's still an appetite for 650 horsepower (485kW) track-day weapons. Chevy's new Camaro ZL1 1LE goes back to the well-understood niche of—comparatively speaking in sales numbers—a tiny portion of thrill-seeking track junkies who want to arrive and drive at the nearest circuit. To counter Steely Dan's debut album title, you can buy a thrill.
Rocketing around the new Area 27 race track in Kelowna, British Columbia (name hinting at the car number carried around by Jacques Villeneuve, 1997 Canadian F1 Driver's Champion, who helped design the course, as well as his father Gilles), it took a bit of effort not to simply bust out laughing at the stupid level of grip, acceleration, and never-quit braking performance of the 1LE over the 3.0-mile (4.8-km) circuit.
