After an 18-year hiatus, BMW has revived the 8 Series name with the BMW Concept 8 Series. The automaker's new flagship model could help the manufacturer compete against Mercedes-Benz, which overtook BMW last year as the world's largest luxury automaker.
Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.

As the Motor Trend First Drive reviewer put it: Many a driver of the previous generations of 911 Turbos has found himself on the wrong end of a tail-out cornering maneuver, as the heavy-rear-weight-biased Stuttgart sportster suddenly swapped ends in a decreasing-radius corner. The 996 Turbo brought all-wheel drive to the party, quelling many of those handling demons, despite packing 400 horses-making it the most powerful Porsche ever sold on our shores. He praised the cars handling, adding One surprise is that its so easy to drive. The Porsche Stability Management (PSM) system that can recognize the moment youve driven the car to its limits, or beyond, and bring you back from the edge added to that driving confidence. This was a landmark 911 that was surprising on several accounts. As the first water-cooled turbocharged 911, the 2001 model marked this engine departure which has continued in subsequent turbo models to this day. The cars steering, which had long been twitchy, was suddenly, and surprisingly calm. The optional Tiptronic shift-able automatic transmission raised eyebrows at first, but soon became accepted as a very satisfying power-management system delivering a 0-60 time of 4.2 seconds. But perhaps the most shocking advance came from the absence of the turbo boost that plagued the earlier 930 cars. Again, the Motor Trend reviewer: ... the 01 911 Turbo gathers up speed with a fluid, seamless urgency: no rude surges when the turbos spool up, and no hesitation when engaging the next gear. The two equal-size intercooled KKK K64 turbochargers... are so well integrated, throttle responses so linear, and low-rev torque so generous that this really does feel like a larger-displacement, normally-aspirated engine. No discussion of 996 series Porsche 911s would be complete without some attention to the often-criticized exterior design of the cars. But the major dings, particularly on the 996 headlight styling, dont really apply to the turbo cars whose headlights were shaped differently and dipped into the bumper. The result of this seemingly small design change is far more satisfying than the non-turbo cars. Whats more, the cars slightly longer, and more rounded nose features two large vent openings (to accommodate the cars third radiator) directly below the headlights. This combination further adjusts the cars forward-facing visual statement in an appealing way. In the rear of the car, cooling vents in the fender and the distinctive slots in the lower body, reminiscent of the legendary Porsche 959, make for a similarly unique statement. Car & Drivers period review summed up the car this way: The new, fifth-generation 911 Turbo is not only the fastest-ever street-legal 911, its also the most refined. Unlike the more subdued colors like black or gray so often seen on these cars, the Guards red finish (quite rare for a 911 Turbo), makes no pretense of stealth on the example offered here. The historic Porsche color is striking, and the condition of the paint-as can be seen in many of the more than 110 photographs available on the GarageKeptMotors website-is exceptional. In similar fashion, the upgraded chrome wheels with colored Porsche crests display no rash or other damage. Their open-spoke design also enables excellent views of the red brake
