  • 2014 Audi RS 7 much more than a high-priced boy toy
    Ladies' choice

    Right for the price

    Muscle-car metamorphosis

    Monticello Motor Club, N.Y. -- I hate it when Motor Trend gets it right.But props must be accorded when props are due, and the May edition of the magazine was absolutely right when it dared to compare Chevrolet's new Z/28 with Porsche's 911 Turbo S and the Track Edition of …
