With just over 130,000 attendees in its first weekend (and more than 360,000 in total over a nine-day span), you could say the Essen Motor Show is sort of a big deal. We—like most journalists—have our favorites from the show; these seven vehicles, which appear in no particular order, are the examples we enjoyed.
With only 40 minutes to spare in Yokohama, I found myself on foot and hustling to visit the Japanese performance shop of my dreams, where glorious S2000s awaited—Autobacs ASM.
Now in its 21st year, Sevenstock returned to Fontana’s Auto Club Speedway, a more fitting venue than some of the parking-lot gatherings of years past. Not only because there’s a race track, but because there’s lots of room for race cars, show cars, and a little bit of everything in between.
The Street Car Super Nationals 14 brought its fair share of thrills to The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, with many racers clocking personal bests in their quest for the cash and prizes.
Super Street and Mackin Industries teamed up to pull the SoCal import car scene together for one last fall meet during the 2018 season, and Front Street was there to capture the action.
Over the past nine years, one thing has remained the same: once a year, as the leaves change color and the temperatures drop, Canibeat.com hosts its annual First Class Fitment show at Princeton Airport in Princeton, NJ. This year’s event was one of the best yet!
If you’re a fan of time attack, then what a time to be alive! A FWD Civic owns the overall North American time attack record, the Unlimited AWD record was just broken, twice, and there’s an all-new, world-class annual event in the works, right here in the good ol’ US of A.
We feature a lot of manufacturer-specific events here on Front Street, but never any that are actually organized and hosted by a vehicle manufacturer itself. When a company like Porsche hosts an event, its overwhelming influence, mass of capital, and heritage within the community is sure to produce a quality affair like no other—and produce they did.
