2018 Volkswagen Golf R Test Drive Review

Even though the 2018 Volkswagen Golf R remains  is basically unchanged from the 2017 model, that doesn’t mean VW hasn’t thrown a few improvements at it. At its core, the Golf R is a hot hatch of the highest order, but more suited to adult enthusiasts than the 20-something crowd. Because there are no gaudy spoilers or superfluous add-ons. Instead, the Golf R relies on seamlessly integrated technology, 4Motion all-wheel drive, and handling manners that make it one of the best daily drivers in the segment. For the full 2018…

Ice Ballet: Porsche GT2 RS and Rally 911 Play in St. Moritz

Most of the time, when you see a Porsche GT2 RS or a vintage rally-prepped 911, they’re squeaky-clean — and they might even be behind velvet ropes. But these machines were never meant to sit still or stay clean. In our opinion, high performance cars look better when they’re covered with bugs, road grime, shed tires, or in this case, snow.
