What I’d Do Differently: Giampaolo Dallara

What I’d Do Differently: Giampaolo Dallara

C/D: You studied aeronautical engineering; how did that turn into a job with Ferrari?

GD: I was at university, and one month before graduation, Ferrari was doing some preliminary tests in the wind tunnel of the Polytechnic University of Milan, and [Enzo Ferrari] asked the professor if there was a young man who could help. The professor asked if I was interested. Of course, if you are Italian and Ferrari asks you, then it is a dream. READ MORE ››

2017 Chevrolet SS In-Depth Review: Swan Song for a Super Sports Sedan

2017-Chevrolet-SS-01-placement

Sporting a hearty 415-hp V-8 and rear-wheel drive, the Chevrolet SS harks back to the big-sedan, big-power formula of yesteryear. Its red-blooded American image led Chevrolet to make it the company’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series entrant from 2013 through the end of the 2017 season. (The Camaro replaces it for 2018.) While this four-door Super Sport is inherently old school, its incredibly balanced chassis and bountiful standard features are thoroughly modern. The Chevy’s exterior design is discreet on the street, but a snorty exhaust note and a 4.5-second sprint from zero to 60 mph lend credence to its sleeper status. Even better, the standard six-speed automatic transmission can be swapped for a six-speed manual at no cost. Too bad the SS is the opposite of fuel efficient and borders on expensive. Still, the Chevy SS is a seriously underrated sports sedan, and it leaves the Mopar duo of Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 as the only throwback American rear-drive V-8 sedans on the market. We’re sorry to see the excellent SS go after such a short run. Only the good die young. READ MORE ››

Ford Turns the Ranger into a Raptor, and We’re (Probably) Getting It

2019-Ford-Ranger-Raptor-PLACEMENT

The Ford Ranger Raptor has just surfaced in Bangkok, Thailand, in production form, and while the truck you see here, in Lightning Blue, is only for the Thai and Pacific markets, it’s likely that U.S. will have a crack at Ford’s rock-hopping, dune-flogging 4×4 at a later date. READ MORE ››

Honorable Mention: 2018 Volkswagen Passat, Tested in Depth

2018-Volkswagen-Passat-01-Placement

The Volkswagen Passat never quite stands out in a highly competitive segment that includes both the best-selling mid-size sedan in the United States and a perennial 10Best award winner; but it still does its job extremely well. Eschewing flashy design in favor of considered creases and a squared-off stance, the Passat looks like the grown-up of its group. A controlled ride, reliable handling, impressive efficiency, and huge interior make it a smart choice, while the sub-6.0-second zero-to-60-mph times that come with an available V-6 engine can entice speed demons (although the Ford Fusion Sport is still quicker). The Passat is a solid choice—especially if rear-seat space is of crucial importance—but despite its many charms, it isn’t our favorite in this class of giants. READ MORE ››
