American 4-Door Sports Cars

America and the 4-Door Sports Cars

Stylish sedans having at least 500 horsepower. Certainly, lots of fast autos are presented with a number of powerful trimmings.

When looking for 4-door sports cars, a fashionable sedan is a great choice for lots of new auto shoppers. They offer the convenience of four doors and a trunk, space for four or five passengers. However, there is enough action to suit nearly any combination of power-hungriness and budget restrictions. On the lower end of the market, a car with great handling can often maintain its own versus a car with a little more power.

The 2016 Dodge Charger

Lately, there has been much interest in the 4-door sports cars, Amazon.com has a list of publications.

The 2016 Dodge Charger, a larger four-door, receives interest for its eye-catching styling, even in base style. Even so, we aren’t really troubled about the base Charger (which, to be honest, produces a decent 292 horsepower). The top-trim Charger, though, is one of the most powerful sedans on the market.

Buyers who want 707 horsepower from a sedan will certainly get it in the Charger SRT Hellcat. The Hellcat  comes powered by means of a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 powerplant which also makes 650 pound-feet of torque. The Hellcat comes with rear-wheel drive (though most Chargers do offer all-wheel drive for an option) and utilizes an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The SRT Hellcat

The SRT Hellcat can sprint from a dead stop to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, and peaks at 204 mph. As expected, car reporters are really keen on this setup. That said, in case the SRT Hellcat is beyond the spending plan, no one will scoff at the Charger R/T Scat Pack or SRT 392 styles, both of which make 485 horsepower.

The Cadillac CTS

The Cadillac CTS is a truly respectable option for a midsize luxury four-door. Even though its looks are fashioned to entice upscale buyers instead of thrill-seekers, it’s by no means an unattractive car– the styling simply disguises this sedan’s true possibility once chosen in its potent CTS-V trim.

Four powerplants are offered in the 2016 Cadillac CTS, but critics recommend that those who have the means should go straight to get the CTS-V’s supercharged 6.2-litre V8. The CTS-V also includes rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission along with paddle shifters. With 640 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque are on tap, reviewers say it feels like every last horse is put to good use.

The Cadillac CTS-V’s maneuvering is also notable, they claim. The car has a composed ride and an agile experience. These are key components of any good sports sedan, earning the CTS-V a reputation as a genuinely usable vehicle.

Sports Car racing in the 1960’s – some history

Racing in the early 60s

Some would say the 1960’s were the good old days, for me they were….

In 1962 I was a junior in high school and living in Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, a small anthracite coal mining town, on the Susquehanna River in north east Pennsylvania.

During the previous three summers my father would take my brothers and me to the Giants’ Despair Hillclimb just outside Wilkes-Barre where motorsports legends like Carroll Shelby, Roger Penske and Oscar Koveleski raced their Ferraris and Porsches. It was then I fell in love with sports car racing.

If you love the Porsche Boxsters, here is a comparison of the new vs the old…..

The Boxster has always been powered by naturally aspirated flat-six engines, that is until this new generation. In many ways all that the engine powering the 718 shares with the 986 is the 2.5-liter size that you find in the 718 S model.
