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 EPA targets Ebay Motors

Sometime low-key earlier this year, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) stopped Ebay Motors from selling any automotive products that could be deemed as 'emissions defeating'. That includes aftermarket hardware & software: Tuners, race exhausts, standalone...

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...

Midori Green EG Civic circa 2011 – Throwback Thursday

This Midori Green Honda EG Civic hatch was sent to us back in 2011. We never printed it. And I feel kinda bad about that now, because the car's owner, Josh Queen, is a solid dude. These are 11-year-old cell phone photos... And I vaguely remember these exact photos...

Just ain’t Caravan – Boosted & Bad Habits

Hi I'm Dakota Arnold, and I've always been a big fan of the Neon SRT4 platform. In fact, I've owned 8 of them lol. I just can’t seem to get away. I've always been into cars and going fast - there's nothing like it! My first vehicle was actually a minivan, a 1998 Chevy...

3000GT Spyder – Outside the Box

Holy sh*t. Here I sit, writing a feature on my very own car for my favorite automotive magazine. A car that I dreamt of owning back when I was in high school. And if you asked me back then what my dream job was, I would have told you an automotive journalist for a...

The Sparks Show ’22 – S3Magazine Coverage

One of the best mini truck events is back! For those unaware, the mini truck culture is alive and well in 2022. Last year, I attended the Sparks show for just one day and quickly realized, there's so much more. This year, I stayed with some friends of mine for the...

BMW M1 by Canepa – Procar 094

(This is a throwback feature from S3 Magazine, circa 2016.) The BMW M1 was BMW’s first run at a mid-engine exotic, and it happened in the 70’s era of emerging new supercars. It was made from 1979-81, and only 453 were produced. BMW was building the M1 as a...

Unplugged Happy Place – Maine in a MK4 Supra

As a modern society, we’ve gotten it wrong with tech. Dangerously wrong in the last decade-or-so specifically. See our predecessors chased advances in technology (whether it was digital or mechanical)… to ultimately allow them more FREEDOM in life. But a lot of the...

Toyota Tundra TRD Off-Road Review

Toyota Tundra TRD Off-Road Review

One of the biggest hurdles for the new Toyota Tundra to overcome… is the greatness of the last generation Tundra. Meaning, the last-model Tundra (specifically 2015-2021) is so good, it’s really tough to beat. So let’s talk about the most obvious/apparent DNA change -...

“The Gray Z” – 650+ HP, Twin-Turbo Z32 300ZX

Not all Z's are created equal. While I was at Helen Import Day I was immediately taken back with one particular car. A kind of car that normally, I don't pay much attention to. But this one - this one had all of my attention. Meet James Moore and his twin turbo 300ZX....
