Looks vintage but is entirely modern. Costs $50K and has minimal creature comforts. Oh, it’s “missing” a wheel. No roof either. Over 1500 sold since 2011. See what you’re missing.

The 911 faithful had still not fully embraced the 928 let alone the 944 when Porsche unveiled a mid-engined concept car in 1993. A quarter century later and now in its second generation (fourth if you count the Cayman) the Boxster is doing just fine.

Similar names, different aircraft. One was the first Soviet supersonic nuclear-capable bomber but failed to live up to expectations, the other a completely reconfigured improvement. This book needs no improvement.

The most successful Ferrari ever run in Prototype racing was only ever campaigned by privateers. And only 40 were built. Of which only 27 raced. Why are there no serious books about this?? Well, now there is.
Five short stories by names you’ll mostly recognize, with unrelated but interesting photographs.
