Doesn’t matter what you call it—GT-R or, more fittingly, Godzilla—Nissan’s range topper is a supercar-stomping, high-tech dynamo. Its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 makes a mighty 565 hp while a six-speed dual-clutch automatic and all-wheel drive team up to put all that power to the pavement. The GT-R’s quick steering, rigid structure and adjustable suspension can make even amateurs feel positively heroic from behind the wheel. Want more? Check out the track-ready NISMO-tuned variant with 600 hp.
Godzilla is a cute nickname, but Nissan’s intentions are more clearly revealed by this car’s three-letter ID bracelet. This is the GT coupe itching for track laps, the racer you can comfortably live with on the road. Now that the $100,000 class is thick with supremely capable sports cars, Nissan has had to raise its hero’s game. It’s calling the revised 2017 model the seventh generation, but much of the core GT-R carries over, so we’d say this is more of a makeover than a full redo.
Thanks to additional boost pressure, the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 now delivers 565 horsepower at 6800 rpm and 467 lb-ft of torque at 3300 rpm, increases of 20 horsepower and 4 lb-ft. A new titanium exhaust system sheds 12 pounds and is tuned for less noise in daily use. Subtle changes to the six-speed dual-clutch automatic transaxle are also aimed at improved drivability.

Tesla Model X
The Model X might be the greenest—and fastest—way to tote up to 7 people over hill and dale. In our test the P90D went from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and has a 250-mile range; Tesla says the P100D hits 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and has a 289-mile range. The 75D and 90D have 238 and 257 miles of range; both are slower to 60 mph. The X is actually practical, with all-wheel drive, a high-tech cabin, and the striking but fussy Falcon Wing doors. Tesla’s Autopilot semi-autonomous driving is optional.
The rear doors release with an audible click, and then the electric motors whir as the doors begin their slow skyward ascent. It’s the Model X’s big trick, and a dubious tie to the hubris of DeLorean, Bricklin, and Icarus.
These aren’t mere gullwing doors, though; they’re far more complex. Power actuated and lined with capacitive, inductive, and sonar sensors behind the aluminum skin to keep them from delivering an uppercut to your head or garage ceiling, the doors are hinged above the glass to automatically fold away from parked cars and obstacles. They’re probably the smartest doors ever fitted to a car. But do you want complicated doors? Mostly you just want doors to open easily, quickly, and provide a large-enough portal to let you into the cabin. Fully open, the Falcon Wing door provides a large entry, but it’s still easy to smack your head on the tip of the wing.
There’s a wait, too. The Falcon Wing doors take five and a half seconds to open—six to close—and occasionally the sensors halt their progress, even when there’s nothing in the way. For as smart as these doors are, it turns out that even semisentient doors with echolocation are pretty dumb. And yet, the dumbest part of the Model X is the first thing you will show off.

The Challenger is one big bruiser, with heft better suited to cruising or drag-racing at the strip than turning laps on a race track. Powertrains include the standard 305-hp 3.6-liter V-6 and an eight-speed auto; a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 makes 375 hp when paired with the standard six-speed manual and 372 hp with the optional eight-speed automatic. The Scat Pack option features a 485-hp 6.4-liter Hemi V-8; a six-speed manual is standard and a eight-speed auto is optional.
Approaching the end of a long life cycle that began in 2008, another class-exclusive boast rolls: “the world’s first and only all-wheel-drive American muscle coupe.”
For a segment so typically horsepower obsessed, braggadocio about the number of driven wheels is refreshingly offbeat. Even better for Dodge, it didn’t need to spend a lot of money on the effort. The Challenger shares its platform with the Charger sedan, which has long offered an all-wheel-drive option. Keen to cash in on its recent double-digit sales growth in AWD models, Dodge simply pillaged its parts bin for the Charger’s hardware and bolted it into the Challenger to hitch yet another model to the trend. Thus was born the Challenger GT . We’d like to imagine that the baptism included jeering and tomatoes thrown at the rear-drive-only Mustang and Camaro.
Ford and Chevy could lob a few tomatoes back at Dodge, given that the GT can be had only with the base Challenger’s 3.6-liter V-6 engine. Dodge says the aim was to offer all-wheel drive to a maximum of customers, and since it sells more six-cylinder Challengers than those powered by any of the three available V-8s, the V-6 got the nod.
The 305-hp Pentastar V-6 isn’t a total letdown, even though the GT must contend with another 200 pounds or so of front driveshafts, a transfer case, and larger standard wheels. The extra poundage associated with all-wheel drive strains the six off the line, yet once the car is underway, the eight-speed automatic’s wide ratio spread keeps the V-6 huffing along. A Sport mode strips the transmission of its inhibitions, loosening the requirements for initiating downshifts and holding onto lower gears longer. Drivers can swat the shift lever or use small steering-wheel shift paddles to manually select ratios, but quick responses shouldn’t be expected.

Tesla Models S:
Boasting up to 315 miles of range, the Model S is the all-electric dream car envied by many. Icing on the cake is Ludicrous mode that blasts the top P100D to 60 mph in a claimed 2.5 seconds. The lower-spec models offer reduced driving ranges and features, but the base 60 model we tested hit 60 mph in 5.5 seconds. Luxury items such as an air filter that Tesla says can protect occupants from bioweapons and pollutants—plus available high-tech features including Tesla’s Autopilot—seal the deal.
The Tesla Model S has benefited from constant revisions throughout its life cycle, but its looks have stayed almost exactly the same since it was introduced in 2012. That finally changes with an update for the 2017 Model S that brings it in line with the recently revealed Model 3 sedan and the Model X Crossover. Gone is the faux front grille, which is replaced by a new front fascia with slightly reshaped headlights and a sleeker, more streamlined look.
Tesla also claims increased driving range for the 90D and P90D models but doesn’t cite any mechanical changes that account for the improved numbers. The 90D, with its 90-kWh battery, improves from 270 miles to 294 miles on a full charge, while the P90D sees range go from 253 miles to 270 miles. These numbers haven’t yet been published on the EPA’s website, although Tesla’s own site says they’re EPA-official.
Another significant mechanical change is the newly standard 48-amp onboard charger that replaces the previous model’s 40-amp charger. Tesla says it enables quicker charging than before when connected to a 240-volt NEMA 14-50 power outlet or to a Tesla Wall Connector. We don’t have exact numbers for the new charger, but the old 40-amp system was estimated to deliver 29 miles of range per hour of charge, so expect more than 30 miles per hour for the new car. This change won’t affect the amount of time it takes to juice up with Tesla’s Supercharger network of quick chargers, and a $1500 upgrade that equips the car with a 72-amp charging system is available.
A few new features also join the Model S sedan’s options list. The Model X’s HEPA air-filtration system, which is said to be significantly more effective than conventional air filters at removing pollution and allergens from the air, is now included in the $3000 Premium Upgrades package, and two new interior trim choices—Figured Ash Wood and Dark Ash Wood—are also newly available.
Honda Civic at Tint Magic Window Tinting Parkland, Coral Springs, Tamarac, Coconut Creek, Sunrise, Weston, Margate, Lauderhill, Deerfield Beach.
The Civic exemplifies automotive excellence and blends fun with efficiency and practicality. Precise steering, a solid chassis, and a well-tuned suspension provide both a compliant ride and sweet handling. Sedans and coupes get a 158-hp 2.0-liter four or a 174-hp 1.5-liter turbo four paired with a six-speed manual or a CVT. The turbo is standard on the hatchback; a 180-hp Sport version is optional. Interior room is good, but taller drivers may find that the front seats lack thigh support.
Now that there is One Civic to Unite Us All, Honda has a better business case for importing less-popular variants to the U.S. Here, the hatchback, which carries a $500-and-up premium over the sedan, is being plugged into the compact segment as a way to grow incremental volume—basically, it’s found money—and, possibly, as a way to stanch the outflow of compact-sedan buyers to crossovers. Honda finally sees some movement in America’s long-dormant ardor for hatchbacks and is hoping for 40,000 to 50,000 sales per year, a number that would give total Civic volume a healthy bump indeed. That is, assuming they aren’t mostly swiped from the Civic sedan and coupe buyer pool. The forthcoming hatch-only Typr R will certainly help draw attention to this new bustleback body style as well.
Inside, the structure was reinforced around the large hatch hole to maintain rigidity, but the wheelbase and width are identical, and overall length shrinks by just 4.3 inches.
The most obvious physical differences, besides the lack of a trunk, are the goth black face paint for the exterior trim and the faux duct inserts in the bumpers, which make the hatchback seem less like a car and more like a robot with terminally flared nostrils. As we said, it’s supposed to appeal to youth, who, apparently, want to be seen as having a lot of hot gas to expel.
