Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2019 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

When a limited-production variant of a performance car that’s been around a few years is announced, it’s easy to assume there’s little new beyond special graphics or maybe a fresh exterior color. Our latest Future Collectibles subject, the 2018 Subaru WRX STI Type RA, is one of the exceptions that have been reworked sufficiently to pique enthusiast interest.

Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2019 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Dodge performance history has largely been shaped by muscular V8s and smoking rear tires, but don’t forget the handful of turbocharged four-cylinder front-drivers. Memorable machines like the Omni GLH and Neon SRT-4 remain enthusiast favorites, but we’d like to look at a more recent Dodge “hot hatch,” the Caliber SRT4.

2020 Lincoln Corsair

2020 Lincoln Corsair Reserve in Burgundy Velvet (a $695 option)

Consumer Guide Automotive

The past three model years have been especially momentous ones for Lincoln’s SUV lineup. For 2018, the full-size Navigator underwent a dramatic (and successful) redesign. For 2019, the two-row midsize MKX got a thorough revamp and a name change to become the Nautilus. For 2020, Lincoln has just issued a one-two punch in the form of an all-new Aviator three-row midsize SUV and Corsair compact SUV, which take the place of the MKT and MKC in Lincoln’s model roster. That’s essentially a complete product-line changeover, and it also represents a marketing-strategy shift, as Lincoln has dropped its alphabetic (and not particularly well-received) “MK” naming convention. The Corsair is the last piece of this puzzle, and it’s arriving at Lincoln dealers now.
