Given that sports cars make up such a small fraction of the new car sales pie, it’s always a bit of a treat when you get to spend time with one. Especially one with as storied a legacy as the Z car. After all, the Z has been around in one form or another for the thick end of 50 years.

Regular readers will have noticed by now that there is a general preponderance of Dodge Charger and Challenger models featured on our site…this is no mere coincidence. We at Speed:Sport:Life are huge fans of the breed in general – that is, torque-heavy, rear-wheel-driven, throwback American muscle cars. Dodge makes some of the absolute best cars in the business right now at fitting that exact criteria, and as long as they keep making them, we’re happy to keep driving them. The SRT 392 that recently spent a week with me is a perfect example of what makes the model so great.
When we drove the new 2015 Challenger and Charger models last year, our drive time was admittedly skewed toward the top-dog SRT models. Though you can probably guess why that was the case (we were mostly focused on lapping the track), it’s really the V6 and R/T V8 models that make up the bulk of sales orders for these cars. In a few weeks, we’ll have a review of the 5.7-liter Charger R/T, and in the meantime, read on for our impressions of the V6-powered Challenger SXT.
It’s hard to have a bad time when you’re staring down eight days with a brand new Corvette.
2014 370Z NISMO, we hardly knew ye. Just last year, we were touting your revised underbody spoilers, wheels and rear wing, and now as we ring in the 2015 model year, Nissan has quietly ushered in a new 370Z NISMO with revised underbody spoilers, wheels, and a rear wing. My, how things change. Still, whether you’re discussing MY13, 14 or 15, the car beneath the body kit remains the same burly, 350-horsepower 2-seater with a stick and rear-wheel drive. The stuff S:S:L dreams are made of, no? Read on to find out…
The Charger SRT8 Super Bee, in its General-Lee-aping shade of orange, is a two ton slab of complete un-subtlety. As someone who values fast cars that also fly below the radar, I feel a bit ashamed admitting that I completely love it.
