Luxury and Sport are dichotomous in nature. Everything that delivers the comforts of Luxury impedes the progress of Sport. Everything that delivers Sport comes at the expense of Luxury. Despite these laws of nature, a consort of European automobile manufacturers has convinced many that deciduous evergreens do exist. Audi, BMW and Mercedes Benz have turned an oxymoron into a class of vehicle. The general public and even the automotive media have drunk the Kool-Aid and the Luxury Sport Coupe is an accepted reality. Now, Lexus is back in the Luxury Sport Coupe segment with its RC 350.

Lexus is a brand synonymous with precision, luxury and quality. However, “sportscar” isn’t a term that could have been associated with Lexus in the past. There were attempts, but neither the LFA nor the IS F really hit the mark. The LFA was a limited-production supercar experiment that was overshadowed by the performance of the much less expensive Nissan R35 GT-R, while the IS F seemed to be more of a factory engine swap experiment. While both the LFA and IS F had some noteworthy aspects, neither was a sportscar for the masses. Text by Michael Ferrara // Images Courtesy…

He spent way more time cleaning and admiring his coveted shoe collection than actually…

Since its release in 2012, the FR-S/BRZ has received an enormous amount of praise for its excellent chassis, abundance of aftermarket support and entry-level price point. Yet, both the press and enthusiasts unanimously agree that the power output of an unmodified FA20 engine leaves much to be desired. Instead of simply showing how to make the car look fast, DSPORT will show you how we put together a reliable, daily-driven combination to produce over 300 wheel horsepower.

Car shows are just car shows, right? Not according to BLOX Racing. For the past four years, BLOX has held its Open House event in Northern California to bring enthusiasts, fans and the industry together for a summer gathering. However, the event faced numerous challenges as crowds became bigger and bigger and cars began flooding over to neighboring streets, lots, and anywhere parking could be found. Although 2014 would have marked the fifth annual Open House, BLOX decided to go all-out and launch an evolution of its event at a neverbefore- seen venue. In just five years, the BLOX Open…
