SP Rides: Going Wild

Ever since Adam Taylor was young, he’s had a penchant for automotive design.  As a kid in the 1990s, vehicles like the Viper concept inspired him to have a passion for creation. By his own hand primarily and not others — it’s never been about buying this and slapping that on. He likes to be unique in all he does.

SP Rides: Complete ‘Pandem’-onium

This incredible 2015 Lexus RC F was spotted zipping down the highway by yours truly. I almost sprained my neck as I lost it in traffic. As luck would have it, I was able to meet the owner, Chris Acosta, for an impromptu shoot of this bad boy.

The ubiquitous Corolla is one of the most popular cars, and if we’re honest, one of the most affordable cars on the road today. Chances are someone in your family has owned one at one time or another. They’re small and economic people-carriers that are great for the A to B. However, among the masses, stands the TE27.

SP Rides: Ride The Lighting

Asia White is not only this week’s Street Pulse Hottie, but she’s also the owner of this incredible 2018 Tesla Model 3. This car is practically unobtanium right now. Out of the 455,000 Model 3 reservations made, not even half have been delivered yet as of December.

SP Rides: Absolutely M-Powered

Colin Snyder’s first introduction to the BMW was from his mother, who just so happened to work at a BMW dealership. Since the age of 16, he’s been aware of the quality and reputation of BMW. Now 22, after a long deployment, he felt it appropriate to purchase a new car.
