Ferrari California T: A Turbo Droptop from Maranello (Video)

Maranello’s turbo-charged Ferrari California T may very well be the belle of the 2014 Geneva Motor Show ball.  Announced in February and just unveiled in Geneva, the Ferrari California T is one awesome droptop.   Ever since the Ferrari California first hit the streets in 2008, I’ve had the opinion that the 2+2 grand tourer is a bit half-assed.  The 3,600 pound, 454 horse California was fairly powerful and had decent...

2014 Porsche 911 Targa 4: New Take on an Old Idea: Video [NAIAS]

In 1965, Porsche developed the first 911 Targa with the intention of allowing for more stable and secure open-top motoring.  The wide Targa roof bar became the icon of that first Targa and all to follow despite numerous design changes.  Over the past fifty or so years, the targa top idea has caught on.  Hell, even the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 that debuted earlier today has a targa-style removable roof.   Now, there is a new...

Spyker B6 Venator Spyder: Possibly the Most Beautiful Convertible Ever

First thing’s first… Yes, the new Spyker B6 Venator Spyder is purple.  Actually, it’s more of a fusia, really.  I’m not really sure why.  It just is.  But, luckily for Spyker, the B6 Venator Spyder, like the hardtop B6 Venator from a few months ago, it is one-hundred-percent, absolutely, positively, without a doubt one of the most stunning cars ever to put rubber to road.  Just look at it. Also like the Venator...

2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante: Gaydon Raises the Bar for Car Beauty… Again.

And, this time it’s a convertible.  Go ahead.  Gawk.  Drool.  Ogle.  I’ll wait.  I understand.  The 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante is absolutely, mind-blowingly stunning.  I mean, damn, just look at that paint.  I’m not sure yet, but it may actually be better looking than the Aston Martin Vanquish coupe, which is no small feat. Like its hard-topped sibling, the Vanquish Volante has a 5.9-liter (litre for our...
