CORVETTE: The Chevrolet Corvette is a treasured American icon and one of the world’s most popular sports cars. The experts at Car and Driver, who have tested nearly every version of this sleek machine, have now compiled and curated over 50 years of articles, reviews, and news about the Corvette, from the first ’Vettes of the fifties to today’s Corvette Stingray. The original articles in this eBook come from the pens of some of the magazine’s most prominent writers: you’ll ride shotgun with Brock Yates on a 4,000-mile road trip to that “wilderness boulevard of dreamers and fortune hunters and runaways and outcasts—the Alaska Highway.” You’ll meet Zora Arcus-Duntov, the engineer most closely associated with the distinctive designs of the early ’60s Stingrays, and learn about “dead-end ’Vettes”—showcars with startling innovations that wound up ignored and discarded. Corvette aficionados and lovers of classic sports cars will savor this collection of photographs and articles that cover every significant aspect of these well-muscled machines. Features 81 color photographs. PORSCHE: It’s been called the best sports car money can buy and there’s no doubt about the power, beauty, and prestige that the Porsche name implies. Car and Driver has chronicled the German brand from its humble beginnings with the 356 Roadster to its modern lineup of supercars, super sedans, and even super SUVs. And now the magazine has collected its most important and most entertaining Porsche reviews and features in one volume, spanning road tests and comparisons from 1975 to today. The articles are reproduced with 79 of the stunning original photos in bright color or crisp black and white. The pages of Car and Driver have never looked so good. CHEVROLET CAMARO: Since the debut of the Camaro in 1966, the Chevy coupe’s combination of high style, stout performance, and affordable price have made it an automotive icon. This eBook, compiled from the pages of Road & Track magazine, includes the launch, the racers, the duds, and, of course, the Camaro’s return. You’ll find road tests, reviews, feature stories, and comparisons from the guys who know best, along with interviews with the folks behind the Camaro and columns from Matt DeLorenzo and Peter Egan. FORD MUSTANG: Nothing says America like the Ford Mustang, the original pony car and the country’s most loved sporting machine. This eBook, pulled from the pages of Road & Track, documents the rise of an icon—the brainchild of crude engineering, modern styling, and fantastic marketing. This eBook looks back over 50 years of coverage, from Le Mans recaps to 0–60 times to the dark years of the Mustang II. There are road tests, comparisons, and reviews from the R&T archives, which taken as a whole explain how the car that defined a generation continues to mean so much to so many. BMW M SERIES: From the 3.0 CSL’s debut in 1972, BMW has taken a very balanced approach to tuning its M division cars, turning already competitive models into well-rounded, capable performance machines. This eBook collects Road & Track’s BMW M car coverage, including features, reviews, comparison tests, and interviews on everything from the M3 and M5 to the short-lived M1 supercar, and even today’s M-badged SUVs. It’s a great way for the enthusiast to revisit the brand or for the uninitiated to see what they’ve been missing.
