Consumer Guide First Spin While it’s certainly not the first all-wheel-drive coupe on the market, the 2017 Dodge Challenger GT is putting a new spin on an old formula.

The names “Corvette” and “Lingenfelter” have been closely related for a long time. It’s completely natural, then, that they’re paired up on the next few pages of this magazine.

The Cadillac V-12 will forever stand in the shadow of the marque’s landmark V-16. The latter stunned the automotive world when introduced and continues to be favored over the V-12 with collectors. In its day, though, the Series 370 Twelve quickly outsold its more august brother by a considerable margin.

LA Auto ShowLOS ANGELES—Audi revamps its A5/S5 lineup for 2018 with a redesigned, second-generation coupe model and the addition of a “Sportback” 4-door hatchback body style. The A5 and S5 Sportback share the same basic “5-door coupe” concept as Audi’s A7 fastback, but are executed on a smaller platform.

Consumer Guide First Spin Coupes account for only five percent of the premium vehicle market, but they’ve also traditionally been important halo vehicles for their respective brands. That’s certainly been the case at Infiniti, where the Q60 coupe and convertible (and their G35/G37 predecessors) have typically been the most stylish and dynamic vehicles in the marque’s model lineup. After a year’s absence, the Q60 coupe returns for 2017 with a new design that shares elements of its architecture with the Infiniti Q50 sedan. We recently had the opportunity to sample the hottest version of the Q60 on a San Diego-area drive route.

BMW as we know it today began with the “New Class” 1500 introduced in 1962. The 1500 was a compact four-door sedan with good handling and performance, and with it BMW found its niche. The 1500 was powered by a 1.5-liter ohc four-cylinder engine—the M10—that liked to rev and also proved durable. Meanwhile, four-wheel independent suspension and front disc brakes made the New Class cars entertaining to drive.
