Shelby GT350 Gets New Colors, Features for 2018

For 2018, Ford’s Shelby GT350 isn’t changing a whole lot — and that’s a great thing. The Blue Oval hit it out of the park with this ferocious derivation of its venerable Mustang, so changing course really isn’t necessary. One thing we’re very happy that’ll remain unmolested for the next run? The glorious flat-plane-crank V-8. While it puts out a very healthy 526 horsepower, it also revs up to a whopping 8,000 RPM, and the flat-plane crankshaft — a fixture of Ferrari’s famously sonorous engines — gives it a banshee-like…

Jaguar’s Four-Cylinder F-Type Sounds Great

Jaguar took nearly 40 years to launch the successor to its legendary E-Type, but it’s safe to say it was worth the wait. Few cars — in any price range — can match the F-Type’s stunning looks, and independent tests have found the seductive cat is much more than a pretty face. Now, the company has announced it’s adding a four-cylinder F-Type to the family. The F-Type’s range-topping engine is currently a supercharged 575-horsepower V-8, which means the new 296-horsepower four-cylinder cars will replace the 340-horsepower V-6 models as the line’s entry-level model. With…

2017 Nissan 370Z Automotive News 

Don’t Waste Time If You’re Looking to Buy a Nissan 370Z

Sports cars are a purchase that often gets put off. But if you’ve been dreaming of picking up a new Nissan 370Z? You should likely plan to do it sooner rather than later. Because while Nissan remains committed to its giant-killing GT-R, the venerable Z might not be long for this world. One key indicator? There will be a Heritage Edition in 2018, which could very well be the model’s swan song. If that makes things sound bleak for the Z, it should, because our friends at Motor Authority caught up…
