1982 Chevrolet Citation X-11

What makes a car fast? Generally, more power means more go, but back in 1982, power was hard to come by. Weight matters too, but not as much as you might think, at least for the cars tested by Consumer Guide back in 1982. Unlike previous “fastest” lists I’ve put together, I’ve included the final drive ratio for each car listed below.

1973 Porsche 914

I recall a time, oh, 38 years ago, when my folks forbade me from driving to a friend’s house because it was raining. At the time, even if I believed that rain in any way made driving more dangerous, I wasn’t prepared to admit it. Besides, real car guys were unafraid of driving in snow, at night, and through downpours. Honestly, I still enjoy driving around through fresh snow.

Los Angeles Auto ShowAlthough it’s hardly “new” — it’s been known about for some time — the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show marks the first U.S. public appearance for the trendsetting Porsche Taycan all-electric midsize sedan.

2020 Porsche 911 Carrera

LA-Auto-Show-LogoPorsche unveiled the eighth generation of its venerable 911 sports car at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Although certainly familiar, the styling is revised — particularly at the rear, which hosts a wider spoiler and light bar — and save for the front and rear fasciae, the body panels are now made entirely of aluminum. Wider wheel housings cover 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rear wheels, and flush-mounted electric door handles extend outward when needed.
