I’m sure they’ll have no problem selling the 1000 units they plan to build. I’m skeptical that a $4000 savings makes much of a difference for people who can afford a muscle car with a 14/23 mpg EPA city/highway drinking habit, but it’s still a nice option to have.

For its third birthday, the Dodge Magnum gets a bit of cosmetic surgery, chiefly around the headlights, seeking to correct what Chrysler design chief Trevor Creed described as the Magnum‘s “wide-eyed look.” In addition to scowling new headlights, the ’08 Magnum also gets a new grille and the new interior.

BMW’s unique 5 Series Gran Turismo may combine the passenger space of an executive sedan with the versatility of a wagon, but there are still some customers who simply desire a standard wagon. For them, BMW has crafted the new 2011 BMW 5 Series Touring.

For the first time, Porsche’s engineers have removed a large quantity of plastic camouflage and cladding to reveal some of the body work lurking underneath. Specifically, an extending rear wing can be seen sprouting from the rear hatch and the sloping roofline and large frontal area are clearly visible.

We were able to put in some laps at Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows, California, where the R-Design’s chassis performed admirably on the 3.0-mile track, which features several elevation changes and some tricky, off-camber corners. All-wheel drive and the Corner Traction Control torque vectoring system, in which the inner wheel is braked as more power is fed to the outer wheel, quells understeer while allowing the driver to take corners more aggressively.

Peters says the surface changes to the convertible’s body are centered around the rear fenders and the trunk lid. Unlike a pure concept, where designers can do as they please, the convertible has been engineered dimensionally to accept a roof folding into the trunk, hence Peters’insistence that the real thing will look pretty much like the concept. He does allow, though, that the windshield will need to be taller on the production convertible.

For 2012, the Wrangler gets Chrysler’s fully contemporary Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6, a dual-overhead cam unit that features numerous advances in efficiency and noise reduction. Output jumps from 202 hp to 285 hp, and torque advances by about 10 percent, to 260 lb-ft. The 3.8’s best attribute was compactness, thanks to the low-profile overhead-valve layout. Squeezing the tall Pentastar V-6 under the hood was almost like getting Jay Leno jaw-first through the tiny door inside Alice’s Wonderland. Engineering chief Tony Petit lost a lot of sleep before adapting the powerplant with a revised throttle-body; a serpentine belt that would stay clear of water and mud; a high-mounted, rear-facing alternator; and unique exhausts. An acoustic cover helps to suppress noise.
