  • As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. The honkin', stonkin' second-generation CTS-V, powered by Cadillac's brawny supercharged 6.2-liter V8 has been a very good thing. And now that the 500 final coupes - the only CTS-Vs designated 2015 models - have been built (just five remain unsold as of this writing), it is indeed a good thing that's come to an end. But Cadillac is not letting 2009-2015 CTS-V go gently into that good night, even as its replacement is poised to debut in...

  • Shanghai General Motors took 32 cars to this year's Guangzhou Motor Show, with its Chevrolet Sail 3 leading the way. After putting almost 1.4 million of them into Chinese hands, the third generation of the Bowtie's entry-level sedan wants to "take the nameplate and the segment to a new level." Its new architecture sporting a 1.4-inch longer wheelbase supports a growth spurt of two inches in length and 1.8 inches in width. The exterior also gets "eagle eye-shaped" headlights and "dual-c-element...

  • In a world where the highest-profile Cadillac—you know the one—rides on gigantic rims, factory or otherwise, it’s telling that the new 2016 ATS-V’s only available wheel diameter is a humble 18 inches. As the ATS-V sedan and coupe make their long-awaited world debut in L.A., the cars’ wheel size is t...
  • The first details about the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V recently hit the web ahead of the official debut at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. Now, the latest model to wear Caddy's high-performance V moniker is officially official, and the specs are even better than initial rumors suggested. The latest figures actually give the ATS-V a hair more power than first believed, with 455 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque pumping out of the twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6. With a standard electronic limited...
  • Cadillac will officially introduce the ATS-V coupe to the world tonight at an event on the eve of the L.A. auto show.

  • OMG, AMG! It's here, you guys - our first test of the highly anticipated 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT. Senior Editor Seyth Miersma put the slick new coupe through its paces on road and track in northern California and came away pretty darn impressed with Merc's new coupe. It isn't totally perfect, though. Read his full findings, here. 600-hp Cadillac ATS-V.R racer revealed We haven't even met the production ATS-V yet, and we're already seeing how it will influence Cadillac's...
  • After a decade of thrilling fans with its thundering V-8–powered CTS-V.R coupes in the Pirelli World Challenge series, Cadillac has revealed its replacement for 2015: the twin-turbocharged, V-6–powered Cadillac ATS-V.R coupe. Pirelli World Challenge GT champions Johnny O’Connell and Andy Pilgr...
  • There was already a rumor brewing that Cadillac might eschew the CTS as its racecar next season in favor of the ATS Coupe. It turns out that is absolutely the case, and now we know just what this 600-horsepower, future racer looks like. The coupe might not be limited to competing in just the US, though, because it's built to FIA GT3-specifications, meaning that this Caddy is also eligible to race in over 30 series worldwide against the likes of Bentley, McLaren, Audi and other premium brands....
  • The Porsche 911 GT3 is a very, very good performance car. Yes, we know this is like saying fire is hot and a shovel to the head hurts. What's different about this proclamation, then? Well, we bring up the 911 GT3's inherent goodness because our friends at Road & Track have named it their 2015 performance car of the year. This is, our joking aside, a big accomplishment for the 911 GT3, due largely to the field of cars it beat out. There were many equally track-focused wonders in attendance...

  • Six "shut up and take my money" cars We all know and love the "shut up and take my money" meme, but now, Seyth Miersma puts an automotive spin on it with this list of six cars we'd buy if the were to ever be created. Performance wagons? Check. Hotter hatches? Yep, got those, too. Widespread use of the word "Hellcat?" You know it. See what we'd throw our hard-earned dollars at without a second thought, here. Mercedes asks, "What's in a name?" Hold onto your butts....
