The F-TYPE line has three engine options, including a 5.0-liter supercharged V8

We learned all there is to know about the all-new Jaguar F-TYPE convertible at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. To add a little excitement to the North American debut of the car at last week's L.A. Auto Show, however, Jaguar showed its newest drop-top in a set of bright orange duds.  Read More

The blue XFR-S comes into full view

After pulling the cloth off the Jaguar F-Type for the first time on North American turf, Jaguar turned stage left and rolled the second member of its R-S ultra high-performance model line out of a makeshift garage door at the 2012 LA Auto Show.

The new Cayman and Cayman S hit the market in 2013

Porsche's big unveil at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show was the all-new third-generation version of its Cayman sports car. When compared to the outgoing Cayman, the newly minted version is longer, wider, lighter, lower, faster, more powerful and more efficient. Porsche stretched out the wheelbase, widened the track and upped the size of the wheels by an inch to increase stability and handling. Meanwhile, the company employed the same lightweight body strategy as used on the latest 911 and Boxster, cutting 60 pounds (27 kg) when compared to the outgoing model.  Read More

Mercedes calls the Black Series the most extreme SLS

Mercedes may have already previewed the SLS AMG Black Series and Ener-G-Force, but that definitely didn't stop the two vehicles from dropping jaws at the L.A. Auto Show. The 622-hp supercar and world-roving public safety SUV from the future may have little in common, but either one is enough to stop you dead in your tracks.  Read More

The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible 60s Special Edition on the floor at the LA Auto Sho...

Gizmag was on hand when Volkswagen unveiled the convertible variant of its new second-generation Beetle at the LA Auto Show ... second generation of the modern front-engined modern version, that is. The first generation was a relatively successful exercise in retro nostalgia, complete with dash-mounted bud vase, that appealed to a distinctly feminine demographic. This time things are more serious and less “cartoony,” with a wider, longer, lower body shape and a level of design and finish that offer real value and less novelty. It’s only right and proper that the iconic rag-top version should be launched in California.  Read More

2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition

To call the Jeep Wrangler “iconic” would be something of an understatement. With a body shape that traces all the way back to that World War II workhorse, the Willys, the Jeep is an enduring symbol of Americana. Ten years ago, to counter accusations of the brand having gone "a bit soft," Jeep introduced the hard-core Rubicon Wrangler variant, named for one of America’s toughest mountain trails. Now comes the Anniversary Edition, packed with even more off-road ruggedness and ability – and a nice bit of red leather.  Read More
