LeMons Northern California Inspections: Peugeot 404 vs Renault 10 vs Corvair, 239 Other Teams.

We're back at Northern California's Thunderhill Raceway, where the temperatures hit the three-digit mark, the penalty laps were handed out in generous quantities to many a BMW and Honda, and the largest number of teams to be accepted into a LeMons race showed up: 242 entries ! With so many cars, we don't have space to cover the boring fast teams, so let's check out a few of the better Class B and Class C entries. If you like vintage GM machinery, why get yet another second-gen F-body when you can get a '77 Pontiac LeMans for less money and have more fun racing it? Class C is going to be the struggle to watch this weekend.

Jerry Seinfeld Spotted In His Porsche 918 Spyder: Video

It's no secret that Jerry Seinfeld is a huge Porsche fan. After all, the comedian and actor has one of the rarest Porsches in the world, one of the original 356 coupes that were built in Gmund, Austria; and he's also owned a Carrera GT at one point, though for some reason that we're unsure of he put it up for sale .

Porsche Cayman gets a new face

We've already seen photos of the facelifted Porsche Boxster out testing, but we're now seeing these same changes making their way onto the hardtop Cayman coupe. Cosmetically, the next round of Porsche's smallest sports cars isn't vastly different, with redesigned headlamps, LED running lights , and new taillamps that actually aren't visible on the prototype seen here.

The SUV that saved Porsche gets an update - with gusto

There is something charming and perhaps even a little disarming about the sheer, unbridled hubris of these Porsche boys. And I say "boys" because amongst the development engineers and corporate overseers at Porsche, I cannot recall meeting a single woman.

2016 Audi TT, TTS First Drive

It would be easy to whine about how Audi's TT, a bastion of eye-catching Bauhaus design at its 1998 introduction, has gone mainstream and become somewhat less interesting. While it's true that the TT is no longer a bold proposition - as either a design standout or an overall car - the TT has managed to burrow into its own subset of the sporty coupe market.

Can The Camaro Z/28 Hang With The Porsche 911 GT3 RS?

The comparison between a Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the new Camaro Z/28 seems as ridiculous as Chevy actually making a track day car out of the Camaro, but it actually makes some sense. The Z/28 is one of the only track day cars that you can still buy with a manual gearbox.
