A source budding up with Road & Track has leaked that the Ford Focus RS will be coming to our shores, but with a unique feature—all-wheel drive.
We haven’t stopped thinking about the Toyota FT-1 Vision concepts that continue to make us drool. We know, we know; there are more important things to do in life besides dreaming of cars that probably won’t come to fruition—at least not in its current form. But we can’t help it. We did something crazy last night. We hit the bottle hard and wandered onto Photoshop. Bad (read: great) things happened.
Allegedly, an RX-7 will bow in 2017, which marks the semicentennial of Mazda’s first rotary powered car, the Mazda Cosmo Sport. An RX-9 is then supposed to come in 2020, celebrating the automaker’s 100th anniversary.
The only thing to drop quicker than our jaws when we learned the price of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was our collective panties. For the low, low price of $78,995 you can get into the driver’s seat of a new Corvette Z06—and probably divorce court. The convertible starts at $83,995—a new offering on the high-performance car.

Only time will really tell.

Throughout the past few articles you’ve learned about the improvements we’ve made to the strength of the engine, and beefing up the fuel and cooling systems. This install we reveal why all of those modifications were necessary: forced induction.
One of the biggest let downs about the BRZ/FR-S was the lack of a turbocharged option. It seemed so simple, just pull the motor from the WRX and, voila, boost! Instead we were left with a car that, while well balanced, just wanted enthusiasts begging for more. Thankfully there is a healthy aftermarket that was practically frothing at the mouth at the opportunity to add forced induction.
There isn’t much better than an early Sunday morning filled with the sound and feeling of roaring V8’s banging the rev limiter, the sweet smell of burning rubber, and a clear Colorado sunrise. On August 7th, 2014 Drift Colorado held the third and final round of their Enjukuracing.com Points Series.
