Incremental Improvements With The 987

Car builds can spiral out of control quickly. With everyone, including myself (having the attention span of a squirrel these days), ideas and goals change quickly. To avoid that, I write you guys to hold me accountable. Not really, but it sounds good on paper. In this...

GM butchers the Corvette legacy

To no one’s real surprise at this point, GM is turning the Corvette into 'a brand' (similar to Hummer or Buick). And to launch the new Corvette brand, GM will add an EV Corvette 4-door, and an EV Corvette Crossover to the mix… giving posers across the country a chance...

My tuner friends have an overlanding problem

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve probably noticed the explosion of the ‘overland scene’. I guess Covid really fueled the primal need for people to get outta the house. Whatever the case, the camping & outdoor market saw numbers like never before. For the...

GM is not giving up the internal combustion engine

GM President, Mark Reuss, recently said that GM is not giving up on the internal combustion engine?? He said this during an investor day just before Thanksgiving break. But wait… REWIND… doesn't this feel like the TOTAL OPPOSITE of what GM has been touting publicly?...

VIP Nissan Cima – Well ok then

If we’re being honest here, I’ve always had a hard time understanding the why behind VIP cars. Coincidentally so has Alexander Richards. Alex & I are both naturally drawn to agile/quick cars. You know… rippers! Yet having said that, here we are, looking at Alex's...

The Integra that Acura NEEDS to build

This is the Integra that Honda/Acura NEEDS to build! Yeah yeah, I'm sure there are 100 reasons why Acura can't manufacture this car in 2022. All I'm saying is... f*ck all those reasons; build it anyway. •DOWNLOAD OUR FREE APP•  (APPLE) •DOWNLOAD OUR FREE APP•...

The Pontiac Vibe is back!

Can somebody please explain to me WTF is going on at Subaru? They release a new WRX for 2022… but you’re more likely to spot a yeti in the wild. Subaru killed the STi, their primo/halo/glory car. Then this week, they announce a 2024 Impreza redesign (pictured here),...

2023 TOYOTA Prius – lower, wider, faster, stronger

As a car enthusiast, here’s what you need to know about the new 2023 Toyota Prius. First of all it’s surprisingly well styled! The 2023 Toyota Prius is 2-inches lower than the outgoing model. And - it’s one inch wider at the rear hips. It’s also lighter & more...

Hello Cavalier: Porsche Cayman Introduction

These days a new or slightly used Supra or R35 car will cost you over 50k. If you're like me, that's asinine. I'm too poor to afford such a luxury. At the time, I had just sold my claptrap of a C5 Corvette, and was yearning for another car on my dream list... which...

Prentice Performance // Heaven Is a Place On Earth

Let’s go back in time... to the late 90’s. I was a kid. And the kid-version of me would trade in my chores for a trip to the local hobby store. It was my favorite place to go, as I was heavily into trains the first 6-7 years of my life. There was one shop in...

Wicked supercharged-to-turbocharged R53 Mini Cooper S

In the car world, saying “from humble beginnings” is a phrase that's often followed with someone’s explosion of e-fame stardom that leaves them with an inflated ego. While this isn’t always the case, in today’s day & age, it seems more & more that it’s...

Got Balls? (throwback feature from 2007)

Let's journey back... back to S3 Magazine circa 2007: -----You gotta have a big set when your goal is winning the NOPI Drift Championship. A great car and a large bank account are nice to have at your disposal, but if you don’t have the balls to risk both man &...

Bye Bye Toyota Avalon TRD
