BMW M4 GT4 Race Car Available for Order | News | Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
For $67,195 BMW will sell you an M4, a proverbial race car for the street; however, for just a smidge less than $190,000, the German company will sell you a literal race car. The BMW M4 GT4 is now available for order, and unsurprisingly the twin-turbocharged coupe means serious business.The 187-inch long race car wears a carbon-fiber hood from the water-injected M4 GTS, a pair of carbon-fiber doors, and a host of aerodynamic add-ons, including front splitters and a massive rear wing. BMW also equips the stripped-out M4 GT4 with the seat, brakes, and pedal box from the bigger BMW M6 GT3 race car. Those brakes comprise of chunky 15.4-inch front and 14-inch rear rotors, with calipers using six pistons in front and four piston at the rear.

Texas Police Department Scores 1,005-HP Chevy Corvette Z06 Cop Car - The Drive
Somewhere, Chuck Norris is jealous. 
On the off chance you think of police cars in Texas, you probably think of, well, trucks. Texas is more or less synonymous with passenger trucks; one in five pickups sold in the United States leave the lot in the state, according to Edmunds, and automakers tend to celebrate that fact by showering Texans with special-edition rigs. It's an image that's also helped by media portrayals of Western lawmen and their macho rigs, such as the Dodge Ram Chuck Norris drove while portraying Texas ranger Cordell Walker in the mid-to-late Nineties.

2017 Mercedes-AMG E43 4MATIC Test | Review | Car and Driver
The 'tweener is the sweet spot.
Behold the Mercedes-AMG E43, the E-class Mercedes that sits between the four-cylinder Benz E300 and the 603-hp AMG E63 S. This ’tweener comes only as an all-wheel-drive 4MATIC and only as a sedan. It’s another derivative of the new, shapelier E-class delivered last year as part of Benz’s top-to-bottom overhaul of a car lineup being infused with the softer styling heralded by the new S-class a few years ago.

BMW Concept 8-series Photos and Info | News | Car and Driver
This shapely coupe concept previews the replacement for the 6-series.
The issue with giving cars numbers rather than names is highlighted by proliferating model count: Automakers are starting to run out of digits. Audi already applies every integer between 1 and 8 to at least one derivative, albeit prefixed by a variety of different letters. Now BMW faces another almost-full house, bringing back the 8-series after what will be, by the time the car goes on sale, a 19-year hiatus.

Is the 991.2 Targa GTS the Greatest 911 Porsche Has Ever Built? - The Drive
GTS = Good, Targa = Good, GTS Targa = Great?
Porsche has worked hard to make a 911 for basically anyone who could conceivably want one. There are dozens of different variants on the 911 theme, each providing a similar yet different driving experience. If you want an old-school Porsche experience, you'll opt for the base model Carrera with a stick and practically zero options. If you want a near-luxury level driving experience that is faster than almost anything on the planet, you opt for the PDK-equipped 911 Turbo S. If you want a track machine, you get the GT3 or RS. There's probably a flow chart at your local dealership that will help you determine which one you should buy to fit your needs.

Lotus Cars is saved, being bought by China’s Geely | Ars Technica
Geely is pouring billions into Volvo with great results; we hope for the same here.
Lotus is one of the most storied names in the automotive world. Since 1952, the company has been applying founder Colin Chapman's maxim "simplify, then add lightness" to the car; along the way it has built spectacularly successful racing cars and sublime road cars. Yet despite those four-wheeled creations, times haven't been easy for the company. Following Chapman's untimely death in 1982, it has changed ownership several times—most recently in 1996 to Malaysia's Proton—each with the promise of renewed investment, which often failed to materialize. That's why the announcement on Wednesday that the Lotus is being bought by China's Geely should be greeted as such good news.

Q&A with Matt Becker, ex-Lotus (and Current Aston Martin) Chassis Whisperer | Feature | Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
Over a 26-year career at Lotus, Matt Becker has had a hand in the chassis tuning of approximately 50 vehicles, although he can talk publicly about only a handful of them. The various automakers that contracted Lotus through the years typically paid for both Becker’s expertise and his discretion. The cars he can take credit for—such as the nimble and docile second-gen Lotus Elise and the 2010 Evora—speak to why his talents were in such demand. Becker left Lotus in 2015 for Aston Martin, where he is now the chief of vehicle attribute engineering.

25 Years Ago, Jay Leno Sold Out and Cheapened Late Night TV | Consequence of Sound
With The Tonight Show, the veteran comic became NBC's go-to corporate shill
On May 25th, 1992, a chipper Jay Leno, prominent chin thrust forward and 1000-watt smile affixed to his face, emerged from within a set of purple curtains for his first appearance as full-time host of The Tonight Show. The fourth person to take on this role following the gold-embossed run by Steve Allen, Jack Paar, and Johnny Carson (icons all), he was well aware of the media glare that was on him when he hit his mark in the Burbank studio.
