Is the Porsche 911 Turbo S a Supercar?(Dec 01, 2013)for me I categorize supercars and hypercars by their top speed..190-220 is supercar for me. I believe some cars can be split by trim also..example would be the C6 corvette..base form isn't a supercar but the ZR1 and Z06 were
Actor and Car Guy Paul Walker Killed(Dec 01, 2013)sucks to hear because he did most his own stunt driving and wasn't a person who craved for the limelight. you never heard tmz drama about him..feel sorry for his daughter!
Actor and Car Guy Paul Walker Killed(Dec 01, 2013)I'm wondering how much of Fast 7 was filmed..either way, look for a stunt scene where he drives off but ends up dying in the movie because what wasn't finished has to be re-written
1994 Dodge Viper Has Just 504 Miles(Nov 29, 2013)the only red one I found on eBay has 29k miles..where is this one from..because I actually have a pic of me sitting in one that has everything original including the tires..which were not dry rotted in anyway..don't remember the miles though
Nissan Reveals 591hp GT-R Nismo(Nov 19, 2013)The new SRT Viper ACR should beat this easily..it ran a 7:12, 3 years ago..lighter and faster now, no reason it shouldn't top 7:08
Tesla is Serious About Building F-150 Fighter(Nov 14, 2013)Tesla is doing big things and is leading the charge with EVs and what they can do..no way in hell are they gonna topple the king of the mountain though in terms of pick up trucks..it's gonna roll off the line at 90k plus if they do
GT-R Goliath Faces GT-R Alpha 12+(Nov 11, 2013)see the thing is..I don't have to skip it and I can say whatever it is I damn well please..I don't say it on a stingray video because those are still new whereas the GTR is old news and played out..just not impressive anymore not for a couple years
Shelby GT500 vs. Camaro ZL1: Which is Faster?(Nov 09, 2013)all was corrected in the second race as they started at the same time..the mustang started pulling on the camaro either way I'd rather it stock for stock from a stop is what I'd prefer
Shelby GT500 vs. Camaro ZL1: Which is Faster?(Nov 09, 2013)the camaro jumped the start the first race..the mustang knew it and didn't try..that's the problem with rolling starts..most of the time, the person honking the horn gets a lil bit if a jump...
2014 Dodge Challenger to Offer "Shaker" Hood(Nov 07, 2013)best looking retro-styling out of the big 3. Yes it hasn't gone through styling changed but why should it if it doesn't need it! It was never meant to carve up the roads..it was made to look sexy and burn rubber and it does it's job thoroughly!
Presenting the Hennessey'ed Corvette Stingray(Nov 05, 2013)Cost of parts and installation and probably some short term warranty is where I think that number comes from. I mean it is done by one of the best in the business so there is a little price to pay
Pontiac is Dead Because of Obama(Oct 30, 2013)depends on how you define bailout..Ford didn't necessarily take the "bailout" GM and Chrysler did, but they did ask for a smaller loan under the pretense that it was for their hybrid/alternative fuel R&D..so in a sense, they did
Inside Goliath's Record GT-R Speed Run(Oct 24, 2013)shouldn't have to delete the app because of an overload of GTR articles. besides it's way to much fun pissing off the fanboys of the glorified Maxima..so get over yourself
Inside Goliath's Record GT-R Speed Run(Oct 24, 2013)title of the article and video is world record SPEED run..not world record TIME run..Ford GT still wins..still has it's full interior also..minus the driver seat swapped for a racing bucket and the roll cage
McLaren P1 Clocks 6.47 at the Ring!(Oct 23, 2013)their performance comes from their base motor, the KERS gives it an extra boost..think of it as a kinda nitrous boost at the press of a button
McLaren P1 Clocks 6.47 at the Ring!(Oct 23, 2013)also, while these do have electric motors, the 918 is probably more of the hybrid that we have come to know, ie the Prius..the LaFerrari and P1s electric motor is more designated for their KERS systems. not really designed for travel.
McLaren P1 Clocks 6.47 at the Ring!(Oct 22, 2013)anyways..way to go McLaren! never had a doubt! Hope the LaFerrari can come close or beat it. Would make for a hella successor to the P1
McLaren P1 Clocks 6.47 at the Ring!(Oct 22, 2013)not like YOU built the P1 or 918..shut the hell up and enjoy every car that gets built, enjoy the competition. that's the true nature of being a gear head..not to be a damn soccer hooligan
McLaren P1 Clocks 6.47 at the Ring!(Oct 22, 2013)or supercars for that matter..and if they do, they are one off or have an extensive line up of other cars that appeal to the masses. The supercar makers of the world do just that..and nothing else..euro-douches need to get off your high horses
McLaren P1 Clocks 6.47 at the Ring!(Oct 22, 2013)no one brought up American cars other than people wanting an American company to compete. that's not where their priorities are..look at any MAJOR automaker..none of them make hypercars...
McLaren P1 Clocks 6.47 at the Ring!(Oct 22, 2013)I think it's funny that euro-douches bring up American cars for us, then say "silly Americans bringing up American cars"..fact is, how do you know the venom cant do it? how do you know the tuatara can't do it? you don't!!
A (Real) Ferrari F50 For $5,000(Oct 17, 2013)I'm not positive but I believe the F40 that Gas Monkey Garage did ended up costing over 500k when all said done..I figure this one will be just about the same
Japanese High Tech VS American Muscle(Oct 17, 2013)all he had to was mash the gas and flick the paddle..when it told him to, might I add. the Chevelle walked his ass down the track..get over it and yourself
Japanese High Tech VS American Muscle(Oct 17, 2013)fanboys in droves on this one..a GTR loses and they come out of the wood work crying! funniest I read "driver doesn't know how to put the power down" really? the damn car has awd AND launch cont. it puts the power down by itself..
Is Lexus LFA Japan's Greatest Gift to the World?(Oct 13, 2013)VvV good point! they weren't specific on if they were talking about just cars or just period. cars..most definitely..period if say Sony or Mitsubishi..the latter because they've built just about everything from camcorders to the Zero
Yellow LaFerrari Chillin in Maranello(Oct 10, 2013)can't help but to notice how ugly it is from a side profile shot..every other angle I've seen, shows it beauty, except this angle..sounds fantastic though
Is This the Next Corvette ZR1's Supercharged V8?(Oct 09, 2013)I don't think they'll supercharge the "Z07". and I don't believe the C6-R or C7-R are supercharged. So it has to be ZR1..especially with the engine cover's shape, pretty similar to the outgoing ZR1. I want numbers though!
Flo Rida Thinks Pink Veyron for Cancer(Oct 09, 2013)I don't know if I'm missing part of the article but no where does say he donated it..yeah he did it for awareness which is all fine and good..but it gets people to notice him also..it's a two way street for "Susan G. Komen".
Bugatti Veyron Battles Koenigsegg Agera R(Oct 07, 2013)the agera r would still stroke the SuperSport. it'd be 500 lbs more instead of 1000lbs. awd is useless from a roll..standing, it would have been more eventful as the agera would have caught and passed the Veyron
Car Mod Atrocities: Part V(Oct 01, 2013)doesn't need a hitch or towbar if he's pulling 5th wheelers..not the first truck I've seen with one of those
The 90s Was an Awesome Decade for Concepts(Sep 22, 2013)it only did 50 because the turbochargers were not connected and the steering wheel wasn't fully attached..it was a death trap to drive but it was for show so driving it was pointless
A Couple of LaFerraris Dance Around the Track(Sep 16, 2013)it looked like the one with camo didnt have the active spoiler while the other one did..I'm impressed to say the least at how fast he was coming into that corner and how quickly he slowed down, and how much grip it has
Corvette Stingray First Drive by Consumer Reports(Sep 16, 2013)1. it seems surprisingly quick to want to let the tires loose
2. seeing it in motion gives me goosebumps everytime!
3. is it me or does the ride height seem to be taller then a C5/C6?
Porsche 918 Spyder Smashes Nurburgring Record(Sep 10, 2013)I'm actually really impressed that this car did 6:57..I for one, didnt think it could do 7:12 let alone smash that record. big props to Porsche! can't wait for an official run from McLareb and Ferrari and the new ACR!
Hennessey Corvette ZR1 Takes the World's Best(Sep 09, 2013)no not misleading..just missing the word "on"..it takes on the worlds best..and of course a 1500 hp gtr is gonna beat it..even a 700 hp gtr will..it's gearing is set up completely different from a vette..I'd still take the zr1 over a gtr anyday!!
Was the Murcielago the Last Great Lamborghini?(Sep 07, 2013)murcielago was not the last great lambo just because of a gearbox. dual clutch is the way of the future of cars..it is advantageous in every way other than maintenance. Aventador is a beast and is aesthetically pleasing..
Was the Murcielago the Last Great Lamborghini?(Sep 07, 2013)living under a corporate umbrella..is good and bad..good: a lot cross engineering goes on and you churn out great products..the bad: the negative stigma of people who think "it's not a real lambo"..
Cadillac is Planning a Product Blitz Against Germany(Sep 06, 2013)they need to stick to their core models right now..and make them the absolute best they can be..CTS-V was a fantastic start to jab a thorn in the German's sides..I still think the Germans have the better handling cars though..
CarBuzz Q&A with Tanner Foust(Sep 04, 2013)now it would be really awesome to try to make this a monthly article..celeb interview with reader questions..any celeb whether they are a race car driver or just a gear head
You Just Know Jay Leno Will Buy the Porsche 918 Spyder(Sep 01, 2013)I knew of this car but never really got insight to how it works..this video solved that problem..biggest thing I picked up on was the hybrid tech..it sounds like it is a KERS system..but works automatically...
Georgians Need Big Checkbooks to Own Their Cars(Sep 01, 2013)out of anyone's car collection..(leno doesnt count) i'd take his garage in a heartbeat..every iconic muscle car, he is a proud owner of. Legit, numbers matching, 100% restored pieces of art! and he drives them!
C6 Corvette Vs. BMW 335i On The Street(Aug 22, 2013)that's the bad about going from a roll and one person honks..BMW jumped everytime..but to think it would hang with the vette from a 50 mph roll..that's funny
Bieber Finally Does Something Cool With His 458 Italia(Aug 22, 2013)he'll pull his "oh I care, look at my charity work" act long enough for little girls to swoon and then like a light switch he's back to thinking untouchable. he's got enough heat to where he can be ordered to longer perform in the US last I heard
Bieber Finally Does Something Cool With His 458 Italia(Aug 21, 2013)better..but he is still a douche canoe for wearing "pants" like that..I don't even know what to call them..they more resemble a diaper than pants..someone just blast him in the face with a can of soup already!
Infiniti's Supercar Delayed Until At Least 2017(Aug 12, 2013)funny, I was just thinking today, why hasn't Infiniti come out with a halo car yet..all the parent (Toyota, Honda) luxury brands have one except Nissan..if they were smart they'd start with the GTR platform and build around that..
SRT Viper Wins First Race of the Millennium(Aug 12, 2013)I love watching ALMS..fun to watch and wish they came closer to me. The Vipers were owning that track all day..what really boggles my mind is the delta wing P1 cars..how they keep those in the corners is just amazing..especially with 4 in. fronts
Acura NSX Prototype Sounds NS-Sexy(Aug 05, 2013)the original was a v6..Honda doesn't need a v8, especially if they have the tech to make generous amounts of power out of 4 and 6 cyl. engines. that's what they are known for. Having the Acura badge will give you all the creature comforts you could..
Acura NSX Prototype Sounds NS-Sexy(Aug 05, 2013)you gotta have 100k to spend on a v6 sports car first...just sayin! what's the sticker on a gtr? 80k? bet you'd spend on that huh? what's 30-40k more if you have the money?
Ford and Toyota Get a Hybrid Divorce Even Before the Marriage(Jul 27, 2013)I think trucks are the one segment not to feature hybrid tech..SUVs are probably the limit..I mean that ecoboost v6 in the f150 is an amazing accomplishment..v8 power with v6 mpg. why not spend the money on making the ecoboost lineup better?
It's Happened: First Test Drive of the New Corvette Stingray(Jul 25, 2013)almost all vettes are 50/50 weight distribution..that is one of their top priorities..and the exhaust has a de facto "mild to wild" switch. I'd imagine if the z06 and ZR1 have this switch..I'm hoping for more of a "wild to holy s***"!! :)
Boston's Finest Gather for Cars and Coffee(Jul 25, 2013)I know sti's are very capable machines..but I just don't dig it..all these sexy cars and then throw this thing in there, and then the rest of the pics are booty save the last cayman.
