Those of you who have been in the car scene long enough may remember when Hot Import Nights and Nopi first had a very underground and grassroots feel to it. Many will attest to the fact that those days are gone and many car shows have tried to reproduce events of that sort of caliber, but have failed. Even HIN has tried to make a comeback in the past couple of years, but in my opinion, has not been able to recapture that raw essence of a car show. The essence I’m referring to is very simple actually, a car show (for the most part) just for the cars. Although car shows are not underground anymore, there are still quality shows out there. Nisei Showoff Car Show is one of the better quality car shows that still exists and if I were to say that a fledgling Autocon car show is comparable to a Nisei Showoff Car Show, I would quite frankly be lying. However, I can say that Autocon has been able to capture some of that raw essence that has been lost throughout the years with car shows becoming more mainstream. Read More

It’s been a while since we have posted a Wallpaper Wednesday feature so I thought we would share these rolling shots of Jason’s 535i rolling taken by out friend Matt Magnino while we work on finishing our coverage of Round 4 of Formula Drift!
For those of you who have never been to Canada, the fitment scene is alive and well in Toronto! Fitted Showcase is an annual show hosted by our friends at Stretch & Poke and this year we teamed up with Chris Chu from Backstage Productions to capture the event and all that Canada’s aggressive fitment culture has to offer. Stretch & Poke hosted the first aggressive fitment event in Toronto, and most likely Canada back in 2010. Now in their 3rd year of hosting the event both the number and quality of cars has grown. With over 500 cars packing out Downsview Park this year this looks like an event everyone should look forward to for years to come!
I recently had a chance to shoot this amazing beast of a super car, and let’s just say, “super car” is an understatement. The sounds that this engine makes is orgasmic and exhilarating. I cherished every moment of my time with it. More photos after the jump! Read More
In recent years, the aggressive fitment/stance scene has infected car enthusiasts all over the word in an overwhelming fashion. We have seen this trend explode in North America, Europe, and Japan, while other regions are catching up rapidly: Austrailia, Thailand, even Korea. However, today we are introducing something completely new to us, the Chinese scene. Read More
This week we bring you a wallpaper of the Jotech Motorsports Lamborghini “Verde Ithica” Green widebody GT-R, photographed by the talented Mr. Dale Martin. Jotech contracted HRE wheels to build a one off custom set of their 593RS wheels to fill the wide body arches on this GT-R, and Dale snapped this photo while shooting the car recently for HRE with Pepper Yandell. Dale is a Texas based photographer known for his amazing retouching skills, and this photo is just another example of one of his surreal edits! If you live in the Dallas, Texas area and you are interested in having your car featured here on Canibeat leave a comment below!
Due to the recent uprise of RWB / RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF builds online some often forget the other wide body builds that are featured on Porsches. Last weekend I had a chance to shoot this fresh Porsche Boxster Spyder with a wide body kit. I will admit that I was very skeptical at first since the RWB builds are pretty much the pinnacle of wide bodied Porsches (as hyped up by the internet), but after seeing it and hearing it I had a quick change of heart. I hope you can agree. Read More
