Marc Norris’s Bavarian Workshop has rolled out countless projects across its three decades of existence…but none quite like the M2. Based off a mid-Seventies 2002, Norris reworked the classic coupe to utilize the E30 M3’s hardware–most notably, the E30’s chassis and 2.3 L inline-four. The combination of BMW’s defining classic and the “holy grail” of M3s has resulted in a four-wheel wonder.
So check out the video and see that wonder for yourself.
Mel Tang grew up admiring Germany’s finest in the 1990s, as his ownership of both a Porsche 993 Turbo and MB W124 E550 serve as testament. But his most elaborate ride is also his rarest: The early 2000s Dinan M5 was the most astonishing iteration of the E39 5-Series. Even though the Dinan team achieved wonders creating a stable, yet smooth, suspension, the phenomenal power output is the sedan’s most memorable feature: A thoroughly upgraded and supercharged S62 V-8, generating — in peak guise — up to 620+ HP. The Dinan E39 was, in hindsight, a brilliant sendoff to an era of BMW design.
Respected as it is, the AMG brand has come to be regarded as a premium Mercedes-Benz trim. It was not that long ago, however, that an AMG was something more — a hand-assembled blend of luxury and sport that catered to an owner’s every whim. Nothing showcases that more than auto designer Kahren Arakelyan, the owner of this daily-driven 1988 560 SEC AMG. First impressions mean everything — and it was the impression from seeing a Mercedes in Soviet Armenia that made Kahren a dedicated Benz enthusiast.

All wheel drive, turbo’d, blow off valve, spool, pssssh, fast, furious and fun…these are words not normally attributed to electric vehicles, until now.
Mitsubishi has confirmed that 2014 Evolution XI models will be hybrids. No, that is not a typo, yes that says HYBRIDS, as in gas and electric.
According to Osamu Masuk, President of Mitsubishi Motors, “We will start work on the project next year, and it will be ready within three. I have set the goal of developing a sporting car featuring electric power.”
At the moment, this is the only information Masuko is offering. There have been rumblings that the new model could feature a diesel motor to help with emissions (U.S.), but it won’t be cheap. Some purist will be against the idea of a legendary car going green while others may embrace the idea of extended gas mileage with a little turbo and all wheel drive fun. The only thing we can say for certain at this time is that it will be a hybrid and it will probably be expensive.
