Our History

Performance Auto & Sound Magazine (PASMAG) has been setting trends and covering the sport compact scene since its inception. From its humble beginnings to its current position as one of the largest magazines in the sport compact market, PASMAG continues to grow daily in readership and audience. PASMAG has asserted itself as a staple in the automotive industry among the top three best-selling titles in the USA, as well as the number-one-selling enthusiast title in Canada for several years running.

The formula is simple: steady expansion, calculated risks, and giving enthusiasts the articles they want by our team of editorial gear heads. From reviews on the latest car audio and multimedia to the hottest performance parts being put to the test, we pride ourselves on bringing our readers the best of the automotive aftermarket. We aim to deliver the best automotive coverage, from tire-shredding time attack and drift vehicles to over-the-top show cars and incredible audio installs. Couple all this with our relevant event coverage, behind the scenes technical articles, and countless hard-hitting features and the result is the most comprehensive magazine on the market.
