The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT takes the SRT sub-brand’s usual high-lux, high-performance tricks—an uber-powerful engine, performance suspension tuning, unique styling cues, and upscale interior trimmings—and applies them to the biggest SUV in Dodge’s model lineup.

1973 Chevy Nova Coupe

The Chevrolet Nova was the 7th-fastest-accelerating vehicle tested by Consumer Guide in 1973.

Our 1973 list of fastest cars is very different from our 1972 list. The primary reason for the disparity has to do with the variety of vehicles tested by Consumer Guide in the early Seventies.

2015 Alfa Romeo 4C

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.
