An early glimpse of the likely appearance of Donald Panoz’s radical road-going supercar

There can’t be many racing car projects in recent years that have attracted as much interest and support as the radical DeltaWing and now its makers have announced that they’re going to build a road-going version.

Yet, there are a number of tuning firms out there, and BRABUS has been at it longer than most. The German company just took a run at Mercedes' C–Class wagon and seems to have slathered on more of everything.  Read More

An all-electric 911? This chassis layout features a rear subframe to hold the electric mot...

While this month's news of plans for an electric-powered Porsche sent the traditional car press into a frenzy of speculation there’s been little substance behind the talk of which direction an all-electric model might take, with many suggesting the company will opt for a Panamera-like Tesla rival.
