Road & Track just published an article suggesting the 13 best new cars for under $100,000. They picked the following;
1. Porsche 911 Carrera S 2. Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 3. Caterham 620R 4. Tesla Model S 5. Jaguar F-Type R Coupe 6. BMW M5 7. Audi S7 8. Range Rover 9. Mercedes-Benz S550 10. Porsche Cayenne GTS 11. Porsche Panamera S 12. Corvette Stingray 13. Radical SR3 RS
Not a bad list, but I’d replace the Cayenne GTS and Panamera S with the Cayman GTS and Dodge Viper. And get rid of the Audi S7 and throw in a Maserati Ghibli SQ4.
Love your blog, I'm not a big gear head but I do enjoy your posts and pics. Extra information: Currently learning how to drift I've hit a few decent slides so far. But since I'm a student I only do it in the rain to save my tires from warring out ^~^
Thanks for the kind words. From what I hear, drifting is tons of fun and crazy expensive.. I’m not really into it but whatever floats your boat. Stay safe
What are your thoughts on the Volkswagen Golf GTI? Not sure if you've had much experience with them but I have heard quite different opinions on them.
They’re fun to drive for sure but I have no first hand experience owning one. I almost bought one, twice but I’m always afraid of VWs (& Audi) fiddly electrics. 10 times out of 10, I’d pick a WRX hatch over a GTI.
What is your opinion of the Cadillac ATS you've had for a week?
It was last year that I had the car.. It’s a great car for sure. The 3.6 is only available in A/T, but the 2.0T comes in manual. I can only comment on the model I had (3.6 awd). Engine/sound is smooth, drive is precise yet comfortable. Looks great, drives fast as hell (320hp), build quality is decent but still feels like a GM. Interior had some cheesy design elements and I hated the entire UI & digital/touch buttons. Overall, I’d recommend it to someone in the market for a compact/sport executive but without having driven any of the new bimmers, benzes & other compact executives, you’d have to take that rec with a grain of salt.
