The 2013 Nissan GT-R is at the top of the list when buying a sports car. It’s not only a supercar, it’s THE supercar! Just when you think the GT-R couldn’t get any better, it returns in 2013 with an impressive sports package. The 2013 GT-R brings new levels of performance and technology to Nissan.
The 2013 Nissan GT-R comes with an outstanding 545-hp twin turbo, 3.8-liter V6 engine, equipped with the smoothest paddle-shifting of its class. The GT-R has a rear mounted six-speed dual clutch, including an electronic all-wheel drive system.
The entire car is performance manufactured. Even the interior features performance bucket seats, a centrally mounted video screen that demonstrates mechanical and driving specifications, and a console mounted starter button.
For those performance lover’s, the GT-R satisfies the perfect taste. The all new GT-R offers a “For Track Pack” special edition which adds a stiffer suspension, lighter wheels, and friction seats. It even comes with speed sensitive wipers, auto on/off headlights, Bluetooth streaming audio, XM NavWeather, XM NavTraffic, and a USB iPod interface. There are few cars (if any) on the road that can relate to what the GT-R has to offer.
What I like best is not only does the Nissan GT-R offer performance; it even comes with added comfort. The GT-R comes equipped with 4 passenger seating for allowing others to partake in the fun. Compared to older models, the 2013 GT-R has improved its transmission better than ever. The shifting has been refined for a more enjoyable feel and quietness.

Porsche has long been identified by one of their marquee designs, the 911. Its shape and style have stood the test of time while remaining mostly unchanged throughout its history. When Porsche announced that no less than 90% of the 2013 Porsche 911 components are either new or have been fundamentally redesigned… you can imagine the collective gasps of the Porsche purists. Nevertheless the preservation of the Porsche tradition was left intact.
This hot New 2013 Porsche 911 is destined for trouble regardless if you’re in the Carrera Cabriolet Convertible or the Carrera Coupe model. They are very similar with one obvious difference, the retractable top. Unlike the Cabriolet, the 911 coupe will come with a sliding glass sunroof and sold with a 7-speed manual transmission for those who like the sporty feel and more control in the driver seat.
Both vehicles have precise steering, effortless acceleration, powerful brakes, all-wheel-drive option, spacious cockpit, and surprisingly fuel-efficient and highly customizable! However, with a top speed of 177mph, the convertible might be a perfect fit for the average daredevil considering its flat-six engine that allows this speedster to sustain 350- horsepower!
They both are also technologically advanced with a 7-inch touch screen electronic interface including navigation, Bluetooth phone connectivity and a nine-speaker sound system. You will also enjoy the newly redesigned acoustics of the exhaust. The stainless-steel exhaust system comprises two distinctive and independent exhaust tracts. The catalytic converters heat up rapidly for effective emissions reduction. Of course, it just sounds like an intense sports car which is cool too!
Check with your fellow enthusiasts over at porscheofsilverspring.com today and give the new 2013 Porsche 911 a test drive. See, feel and hear the difference in this years innovations for yourself.
Everyone is wondering who the mastermind is behind this powerful and insane new Benz. Electric cars have become seemingly more common, but no one expected to see Mercedes-Benz come out with the SLS AMG Electric Drive. This bad boy is designed to cause trouble with its 739 lb-ft of torque and 740-horsepower! With its strong and sheer acceleration this Mercedes-Benz will blow your mind. And not to mention the massive adrenaline rush you will get from going a top speed of 155 mph with the complete silence of an electric motor!
If driven sanely, this supercar guarantees a 120-mile range that is fully recharged in just three hours! If you aren’t impressed yet, wait until you hear this. Mercedes was able to gut the engine and transmission of their original SLS AMG and in its place substitute four electric motors each dedicated to its own wheel. In its own unique way, this Electric Drive’s motors are installed in the car to reduce excess weight. Like the regular SLS, the dynamic Electric Drive does adjust between three different drive settings: comfort, sport and sport plus to meet your own driving preference.
However, I must warn you that this electrifying sports car has a supernatural feel considering its absence of sound and phantom approach. But if you don’t have the spooks yet, the price tag will surely thrill you. This Benz is easily the one of the most expensive electric vehicles going for $570,000, but if your bank account is sturdy enough for this sexy new ride it’s definitely unlike any other vehicle you will ever buy!
