2018 Ford Mustang design breakdown: How it got that sleek new look

Auto Blog News Feed - Wed, 05/16/2018 - 16:45

Filed under: ,,,,

As time marches on, even icons needs a little nip and tuck now and then. Such was the case for the 2018 Ford Mustang, which, three years removed from the biggest update ever made to a Mustang (independent rear suspension, finally!), received a restyling to keep it looking fresh. The results felt controversial at first blush, but as reality set in and we've started seeing the stallions in the wild, it now seems like a natural progression of the pony car.

Porsche 911 Speedster spied testing with new GT3

Auto Blog News Feed - Wed, 05/16/2018 - 14:25

Filed under: ,,,,,

The last Porsche 911 Speedster was a limited-production special that marked the end of the 997-generation 911. We've seen spy photos of that car's follow-up a few times by now, each revealing a little bit more than the last. From what we can tell, the new model is essentially a drop-top version of the 991.2 Porsche 911 GT3, 500 horsepower naturally-aspirated flat-six and all.

How to make choosing the safest car for your family easy

Auto Blog News Feed - Wed, 05/16/2018 - 12:01

Filed under: ,,

It's true that vehicles get a little bit safer, cumulatively, with every passing year. Each time a car, truck, SUV, or van is redesigned, the automaker can optimize it to ace the safety ratings and incorporate new features that car buyers value to help protect their families and others on the road, like pedestrians and bicyclists. But new cars are subject to more comprehensive safety testing than ever, and there's a gradient of available safety out there.
