Tesla Model S

Car and Driver 10Best LogoCar and Driver is keeping new blood pumping into its annual 10Best cars list with three new entries making it on for 2015 and a perennial favorite falling off. Among the biggest shocks this year is that the BMW 3 Series and 4 Series are no longer named, despite years of some portion of that lineup earning a mention. In another surprise, the Tesla Model S (specifically in S 60 trim to fit under the $80,000 cost cap) makes it to the 2015 roster and is the only electrically motivated member of the group.

Despite the loss of the 3 Series, BMW isn't entirely shut out this year, because the M235i gets its name on the list. Car and Driver argues that the little coupe feels like a welcome throwback to the E46 chassis M3 of the early 2000s. In addition to the Model S, the final newbie to the annual group is the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. The inclusion of these new members knocks the Audi A6/A7 family and Ford Fiesta ST out from the 2014 rundown.

The other seven models carry over from last year, including the Cadillac CTS, Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, Honda Accord, Mazda3, Mazda6, Porsche Boxster/Cayman and Volkswagen Golf/GTI.

The 2015 10Best cars list certainly seems to have something for everyone from the hot hatch fan to the family man and even the green car driver, thanks to the addition of the Tesla. Head over to Car and Driver to read its detailed explanations for each vehicle's inclusion, but if you've got a difference of opinion or just really like the list, let us know in Comments.

Bama 9 second pass in a 2015 Mustang GT

The Bama Performance team has been hard at work tuning the 2015 Mustang and that hard work is paying off huge; they now hold the title of being the first to put a 2015 Mustang GT in the 9′s! We have been talking about Bama Performance a good bit recently as they have been constantly going to the track and setting all kinds of naturally aspirated and forced induction 2015 Mustang benchmarks. However, their most recent benchmark is the most impressive to date.

Bama Performance took their 2015 Mustang GT down the 1/4 mile to run an incredibly fast pass of 9.91 @135 MPH! The mod list is as follows:

By switching things up with a Bama track tune on FTW Fuel and larger fuel injectors, the Bama Performance team was able to be the first to break into the 9′s.We are excited to see what else the Bama team has up their sleeve and will be sure to keep you up-to-date with the latest news!
