NASCAR in the House: Toyota at SEMA 2017

When it comes to build quality, features, and overall durability, Toyota has long been an industry leader. In fact, it’s not unusual to see the company’s cars crest the 200,000-mile mark having undergone just scheduled maintenance. And while mainstream consumers have flocked to showrooms and bought vehicles like the  Camry, Corolla, and Tacoma in droves, enthusiasts often derided the brand as functional, but uninspired. In recent years, however,  President Akio Toyoda has been leading the charge to shake off that image—and the work has paid incredible dividends. Here are some of…

Hellcats, Jeeps and Spiders: FIAT Chrysler at SEMA 2017

Given the company’s product line? It’s kind of funny that FIAT Chrysler has to do anything for the SEMA at all. Because the Just Enough Essential Parts crowd is going to continue to buy and customize the venerable Wrangler regardless of what goodies they see at the show. And models like the 707-horsepower Hellcat and the 850-horsepower Demon? They’re so insane, that they make ferocious custom hot rods look tame. But come to Las Vegas, Ma Mopar does—and the booth is always a ton of fun. Here’s what we saw…

Want more proof about how fast the performance landscape is changing? Look no further than Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Turbo S E-Hybrid. This dead-hot wagon is officially the fastest in the Panamera lineup, and the numbers should make any enthusiast’s pulse quicken. Why? Because the Sport Turismo Hybrid generates a whopping 680 horsepower and 626 pound-feet of torque, which is good enough to deliver a zero-to-60 time of 3.2 seconds, and a 192-mph top speed. It’s basically insanity wrapped in a practical family hauler, and we love it. Now, it’s safe to…

Fresh From the Nurburgring: Hyundai at SEMA 2017

There’s over a million feet of floor space at the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas, and it’s populated by cars looking to standout. So while you’ll see plenty of exhibitors detailing their cars nonstop, there’s one time-tested way to make folks notice a race car: Leave it dirty. Because nothing stands out in a squeaky-clean hall like a little bit of well-earned race grime, and Hyundai employed that strategy beautifully this year. Check out all our photos from Hyundai at SEMA 2017! The race car in question is Hyundai’s…

Track-Tuned and Ready to Rock: Honda at SEMA 2017

For those who haven’t been, SEMA is one of the craziest car shows on the planet. Which means there are plenty of concepts so wildly impractical, there’s no hope you’d ever catch one at your local cruise-in. But while the flashy—sometimes trashy—builds can dominate the coverage, you don’t have to look hard to find the kind of hard-nosed performance cars which make enthusiasts weak in the knees. And that’s the direction Honda went this year, as there wasn’t anything in its booth which wouldn’t feel right at home on the…
