Every car company that can is making serious hay out of every anniversary they can find. Problem is, in a lot of cases, there have to be some asterisks slipped in due to, say, Chevy never producing a 1983 model Corvette, yet claiming an unbroken chain of manufacture since its introduction in 1953.

Ford Plans "Halo Model" Intro at NAIAS 2015. Let's Pray They've Learned Something in the Past Decade.

Every car nut loves a hot-hatch. They handle like a sports car, have plenty of power, yet they still offer all the practicality found in a normal hatchback. The Volkswagen Golf GTI is the recognized standard bearer, but the 395hp Volkswagen Golf R 400 takes that recipe to a whole other level. And it may be headed for the production line.
