We’re excited to see the Brabham name returning to racing next year through their new crowdfunded race team project for their FIA WEC LMP2 entry next year. David Brabham is leading the charge with this unique open-source, fan-funded project and believes that this new model will bring fans closer to the action.

We’ve got some good news for you would-be Dodge Viper owners. Dodge announced today that the 2015 Dodge Viper will be priced at $84,995, a full $15,000 less than the 2014 models. This is a pretty drastic move by Dodge in an effort to kickstart sluggish sales, and compete with the 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 that will be hitting dealers soon. Dodge says that the 2015 Viper is priced in the same ballpark as the original 1992 Viper when adjusting for inflation. The original Viper started at $50,700, which is about $86,130 in 2014 dollars.
The Toyota Camry was the best selling sedan in the United States for 2013, with over 408,000 units sold.

There are plenty of newcomers clamoring for consumer attention in the mid-sized sedan segment like the fantastic Ford Fusion, Mazda 6 and Kia Optima.
So what keeps the Camry at the #1 spot year after year, even with increased competition from other manufacturers? I spent a week with the 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid SE to find out.
