Note: The following story was excerpted from the February 2018 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Since news of “dieselgate” broke in September 2015, Volkswagen’s TDI diesel engines and the software that enabled emissions-test cheats have received tremendous attention. It’s probably an understatement that the resulting avalanche of bad press has overshadowed the company’s new-product news.

Chevrolet celebrated the Camaro’s 50th anniversary in 2017. There was a commemorative model with special trim, but here we’re more interested in the latest high-performance ZL1 as a possible future collectible.

2017 Ford Fusion Sport

by Don Sikora II

Note: The following story was excerpted from the October 2017 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

The second-generation Ford Fusion made its debut as a 2013 model, and the midsize sedan received some significant updates for 2017. Most Fusion models cater to a practical and mainstream market, while the Hybrid and Energi plug-in models target efficiency seekers. Now, though, Ford has added something for those looking for more speed and a bit more excitement than run-of-the-mill sedans offer: the Fusion Sport.

Note: The following story was excerpted from the August 2017 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

In 2014 BMW replaced the 1-Series as its premium subcompact in America.  The new holder of that job was the 2-Series. The basic idea here was a coupe or convertible with four seats and rear drive. There were two subseries, the 228i with a turbocharged four and the M235i with a 320-bhp turbocharged inline six.

2017 Dodge Viper

by Don Sikora II

Note: The following story was excerpted from the June 2017 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

When the production version of the original Dodge Viper RT/10 was introduced for the 1992 model year, it really was like nothing else. Sure, Carroll Shelby’s legendary Sixties-era Ford-powered Cobras provided inspiration, but Viper’s in-your-face, all-American design and 400-hp V-10 engine captured the public’s imagination.

Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2017 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Back in the Sixties and Seventies, buyers in the market for a small sporty roadster had quite a few choices. Sure, they were mostly British or Italian, but there were choices. Heck, even a decade or so ago, Americans had several reasonably affordable two-seat drop tops to shop. Remember the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky?

2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible

by Don Sikora II

Note: The following story was excerpted from the February 2017 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

At first glance, the 2017 Range Rover Evoque convertible is an unlikely new offering from the British brand best known for classy sport-utility wagons that can go darn near anywhere. I must admit my early thoughts when hearing about the soft-top Evoque included visions of the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet—which answered a question no one was asking—and a colorfully worded version of “what are they thinking?”

2016 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe

Mick Jagger's CarBy Don Sikora II

Note: The following story was excerpted from the December 2016 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

When the Cadillac CTS-V made its debut in 2004, the idea of a finely honed high-performance Cadillac sedan was pretty audacious. Now, little more than a decade later, racy Cadillacs are accepted, perhaps even expected, by driving enthusiasts.

2015 Alfa Romeo 4C

By Don Sikora IICollectible Automobile Magazine

Note: The following story was excerpted from the August 2016 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Alfa Romeo’s long-promised return to the American market has seemingly been in the works since imports of the 164 sedan ended in 1995. Less than 10 years ago, Maserati dealers sold Americans about 100 $250,000-plus Alfa 8Cs. But more attainable models were only promised, not delivered. Finally, after countless delays, the first examples of the Alfa Romeo 4C hit the company’s small network of Stateside dealers in late 2014.
