Year after year, there’s one car in particular that brings me back to the Rolex Historics at Laguna Seca. Don’t tell my peers… but, truth be told, it’s a Porsche, and a 911, at that. Sort of. The Porsche 935 has been, for as long as I can recall, one of my favorite automobiles on earth, trailing behind only the M1 Procar and the Zakspeed Capri.
It’s hard to beat a night-lit cityscape and a synthwave soundtrack. Add in cinematics a killer car — in this case, a 190E Cosworth — and you’ve got a match made in heaven, even if it’s somewhat expected. Purpuhl Media just dropped a clip you’re bound to love if any of the above applies to you. Lights down, sound up: this one’s in 4K.
The American market has never been all too hot on the whole “hatchback” thing. We’ve got a handful, of course, but chances are the first hatchback to come to mind for most Americans will be an EG or EK Honda Civic. That’s likely to be followed by the Golf and GTi. Past that, it’s anyone’s guess. For one reason or another, it never caught on, and if you ask me, it’s a tragedy.
If there’s anything I truly enjoy stumbling across, it’s unseen DTM footage. Call me a fanboy: I’ll happily take it. Last week, Eric van de Poele uploaded footage from the 1987 race at Zolder, complete with a slew of behind-the-scenes shots and incredible sound bites. You know the drill.
Despite having only been produced for three years, the DeLorean DMC-12 is undeniably an American Icon. It’s an instantly-recognizable piece of pop culture, and for better or worse, it owes it all to Doc Brown and his time machine. You know the one. While the DeLorean Motor Company has an interesting history of its own, its trivial at best in comparison to the history solidified by Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox.
