2002 Ferrari Enzo

Luca di Montezemolo dedicated the Ferrari Enzo to the founder of the company, “who always thought racing should lay the foundations for our road car designs,” at the Paris Auto Show in September 2002. He described the car as “the best of which our technology is capable.” The Enzo Ferrari would be the successor to the F50. The world was waiting with bated breath, as the F50’s successor had very big shoes to fill.

At the Enzo’s heart is its Read More

1953 Fiat 8V Cabriolet by Vignale

Vignale bodied 10 8V chassis, all to Michelotti designs, of which the car offered here, number 000050, is the only cabriolet and one of very few open bodies produced for the 8V by any coachbuilder. The drawing for the cabriolet notes that it was an exclusive design created for a Sig. Leone. It bears a remarkable resemblance to a similar coupe built by Vignale on another 8V chassis, but it has the breezy nonchalance that only a convertible top can Read More

Easy on the Eyes and the Checkbook

There’s nothing like a little wind in the old scalp, but if you were a BMW fan last century, there wasn’t much to choose from except a truly vintage two-seat roadster or the “rare-and-should-be” Z1 from 1989. That is, until the introduction of the Z3, way back in 1995.

The Z3 was a response to the wildly popular Mazda Miata — and recognition of the reappearing two-seater market niche. The successful introduction of the Miata in 1989 represented a sea Read More

1938 Jaguar SS 100 2½-Liter Roadster

Launched in 1936 alongside the 2½-liter saloon, the SS 100 Jaguar sports car marked the company’s first use of the Jaguar name. Beautifully styled in the manner of its SS 90 predecessor, the newcomer employed a shorter, 102-inch wheelbase chassis and a revised version of the 2,663-cc Standard Six which produced 104 bhp. In 1938, a 3½-liter version producing 125 bhp was added to the range, making the SS 100 a genuine 100-mph car.

Although a fine touring car, the Read More

1927 Falcon-Knight Model 10 Speedster

This 1927 Falcon-Knight Model 10 has a one-off 2-seat speedster body believed to have been commissioned by James Harvey Howe III, grandson of the inventor of Tums. He donated it to the St. Louis Museum of Transportation in the 1970s. The car was later part of the John O’Quinn Collection before being acquired by the Evergreen Collection.

The body is as elemental as a good speedster should be, light in weight and burdened with only essential features, such as electric Read More

1968 Porsche 911 Coupe

First presented to the public at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1963, the Porsche 911 replaced the 356 and was styled by Ferdinand “Butzi” Porsche and Erwin Komenda, who was then head of the Porsche design department.

The 911 retained the air-cooled, rear-engine layout and independent rear suspension and would not only see a continuous production run right up to the present day, but it would also become the most successful road-derived race car in history. None of the top Read More

1970 Ferrari 365 GT 2+2

Making its debut at the 1967 Paris Auto Show, the 365 GT 2+2 emerged as the most luxurious and best-equipped Ferrari model in the hallowed company’s history. In addition to its sleek Pininfarina bodywork, the 365 GT 2+2 was the first Ferrari equipped with power steering and brakes as standard equipment — and Ferrari’s first self-leveling rear suspension. Unlike the balance of the product line, which used transaxles, the gearbox of the 365 GT 2+2 was mounted behind the engine Read More

VW’s First Sports Car is Still Winning Hearts

Almost every classic car enthusiast has owned an air-cooled Volkswagen somewhere along the line — generally very early along the line. But even though most of us soon moved on to more rarefied marques, the old rattletrap VWs with stinky exhaust heat, iffy brakes and glacial acceleration still hold a special place in our hearts — the glad memories of youth.

Introduced in 1953 and first produced for the 1955 model year, the VW Type 14 — better known as Read More
