The import versus domestic car argument can get quite heated. The domestic guys tend to boast about their power and quarter-mile times, while the import crowd brings up turning left—and right—and things go downhill from there, but what about a compromise? Why not combine the best of both worlds—agility from the import side with brute force from the domestic camp? That was the question Alexander Gallardo had to ask himself when he came to a crossroads with the evolution of his 2003 350Z a few years ago.
Once again we had an immensely successful turnout for this week's installment of our Top 10 Automotive Photography article.

By allowing the community to vote directly, it allows for a wider variety of eyes to study and critique the content.
When we received an invitation to attend a private Old School meet, sponsored by SNTRL and Nostalgia Imports in Edgewater, New Jersey, we jumped at the chance. Many heavily modified imports competed for our attention, but we managed to focus on a vehicle that represents one of our future series highlighting the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) scene in America. While there was no shortage of premium imports, one classy 1983 KE70 Toyota Corolla seemed the perfect specimen.
Once again we decided to mix up this week's installment of the Top 10 Automotive Photography countdown. Instead of hosting the voting session internally by TeamRevv, we went out to our Facebook community and allowed them to vote directly for the winners. Of the twenty images chosen for the initial pool, we used the individual images' Likes plus Comments and Shares to calculate who the official winners were. . . and it was an interesting turnout! Everybody has their individual interests, and while we love scrutinizing every image with the upmost belief that we're unbiased, it's simply not true. So, we let the masses do the voting!

On November 30, 2013, news quickly spread of a serious accident involving a red Porsche Carrera GT in Valencia, California, following a toy drive for charity. The story took a tragic turn when it was revealed that the crash had taken the lives of Fast and Furious franchise star Paul Walker and his friend and business partner, Roger Rodas. While details of the accident are still speculative at this point, the bottom line is that two families have lost loved ones, the automotive culture has lost one of its best representatives, and the world has lost someone who strived to help those affected by natural disasters.

BMW’s departure from the familiar nomenclature of the past has been received with mixed reviews from the dedicated German sports car community. It seems that the Bavarian automotive giant has decided to affix odd numbers to sedans and even numbers to coupes and convertibles. Of particular concern, to the performance motoring crowd, is that the lofty standard of the beloved M3 will be lowered with its replacement M4 coupe. BMW aficionados have been less than impressed with the redesigned M5. Claims that the M5 lacks guts, that the suspension is soft and mushy, and that the sports car temperament has been eliminated have fueled the fires of doubt about the new M4. The BMW faithful fear that a similar fate awaits the new M4, after all, the engineers who designed the M5 are still around.
