2015 is the second year of the seventh generation of America’s only home-grown sportscar, the Chevrolet Corvette. The opportunity to design a new Corvette is akin to singling the National Anthem—a wonderful opportunity, and a lot to live up to. Before launch, there was speculation the C7 would be mid-engined; it turned out not to be. Similarly, many feel styling too is iterative: bluntly, C7 looks too much like C6. However, standing beside the cars, C7 looks nothing like C6; it is full of unusual angles and fresh ideas. C7 seems sleeker, larger than C6. Go look at a C7 for yourself; the pictures don’t do the shape justice.
There are fast cars out there—sure a WRX is quick or even a 4-Series BMW, perhaps. Then there are really fast cars—a Corvette Stingray or Porsche 911 both fill that bill. But even beyond those cars lie another realm of speed that is reserved for the truly remarkable examples of machinery made to move.
Hillsborough Concours is one of the best events of the Northern California car show calendar. It takes place right on the San Andreas earthquake fault line, hard to believe since a more picturesque spot would be hard to find. Like Pebble Beach, it is on a golf course, with visitors parking and riding. Like Pebble, the show is a manageable number of cars, meaning you can walk around the field multiple times, revisiting favorite cars, rather than drowning in volume. Like Pebble, this year one of featured marques was Ferrari.
In a statement made recently, Mercedes Benz revealed that it is exploring the possibility of creating a high-riding off-road station wagon that will have its sights set on the sales niche that is currently occupied by Audi's range of allroad-branded vehicles.

There is a quote that you see on bumper stickers and T-shirts that goes something like this: “If I have to explain it to you, you won't understand.” Up until now, this has applied to muscle cars, but we will provide a public service announcement later in this article that changes everything.
We won't lie; when a new car like a Viper comes out we are as giddy as a five-year-old on Christmas morning. Full of enthusiasm and exuberance at the idea of not just something novel, but of the potential it might have to be the best… whatever… car it is. But, that's not where the fun ends. In past years, the idea of, say, a new Corvette, would have us grinning for days and that would be it. But then, a new Z06 would come out—Corvette, but even better! Our little hearts could only beat so fast. Then, as with the C6, the ultimate Vette, a ZR-1 shows up and that would be about all we could take.

I have done a great deal of traveling throughout my life, and I have found that renting a car is kind of fun. You explore your options when you are making the reservation, and you have decisions to make with regard to the price. You can go the economy route, but if you are willing to dip into your wallet, you a have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a car that you have always wanted to drive.
With sales currently shrinking in the mid-size car segment (which includes the Chrysler 200, Toyota Camry, and Honda Accord), many manufacturers are engaging in a bitter incentive sales war that has the potential to erode long term profits for the segment, according to a statement released by Chrysler representatives to the folks at Automotive News.

It seems that this is the way things have been determined in the stars—a new Mustang comes out, and not long after, a new Camaro appears hot on its heels. This has been the way of things since the debut of the Mustang in April of 1964, a little less than three years later GM launched its counterattack in September of 1966. Since then, the time gaps have gotten shorter, but the rivalry has only gotten bigger. The two sides have traded wins and losses, mostly dictated by sales, but also by track numbers and bragging rights. The 2015 Mustang was the new kid on the block, but its time is up and the 2016 Camaro is on its way to crash the party. Sporting enough changes to signify a generational change, this will be the sixth iteration of the Camaro since its inception, and it looks like it could be the baddest one yet.
