Lambo CEO Isn't Interested in Hybrids(Jun 09, 2013)Somewhat disappointing. A supercar should be at the forefront of emerging tech, not cling to old cliches. They should be innovative and trendsetting. I can understand why Lambo feels that way but I hope they change their minds.
Top 5 British Supercar Manufacturers(Jun 06, 2013)Saw one of these in Costa Mesa, CA. It was impounded after the dealership was arrested for meth dealing. The car belonged to Mike Tyson and they cracked the fender when it was impounded. Broke my heart seeing it in the impound like that.
We Want the PGO Cevennes Speedster in the US(Jun 02, 2013)Wow Bob Billy. That's some awesome writing ya got there. Scion is the budget/younger market branch if Toyota. I am not a big American car fan but we definite have more than just the Abarth as attractive cars.
Hydrogen Fuel Cell-Powered Audi A7?(Jun 02, 2013)@Thai Chau Ha - many auto manufacturers have a fuel cell vehicle being tested. Not just BMW. Honda has one you can actually lease.
The Great Sounding Maserati Ghibli(Jun 02, 2013)Given other associations with the name 'Ghibli' I half expect to see a Totoro or a character from one of Miyazaki's films in the driver seat.
Lexus Pays Tribute to its LFA(Jun 02, 2013)Lexus has a design center in Irvine, CA down the street from my office. I heard a massive roar and thought it was some tuned up Lambo or Ferrari. An LF-A comes tearing around the corner with that F1 sound. I was smitten. Hard.
"Snake & Mongoose" Racing to Theaters(Jun 02, 2013)My former boss is Richard Schroeder, who also was a pioneer in this era and drove Bad Bossa Nova as well as Emergency West. He would regale me with stories about these two guys. Made me jealous of that era.
"Snake & Mongoose" Racing to Theaters(Jun 02, 2013)You mean Sylvester Stallones 'Driven' isn't on that list? ;-)
Rally Racing needs a halo movie to champion it. And it needs some Group B action.
New BMW X5 M Sport Revealed(May 31, 2013)Just 4 whole superchargers? Paltry. I need at least two turbos per cylinder and four superchargers for each intake manifold runner. It needs to be a class 5 tornado in the cylinder.
Top 5 Maserati Concepts(May 25, 2013)Wow I remember I had a plastic model of this. It was the only Maserati I'd ever seen as a kid so I thought all maseratis were this wild. Needless to say subsequent Maserati cars seemed timid in comparison so I never paid much attention until recent.
22 Loud and Sexy Exhausts(May 20, 2013)Colby is just a juvenile who's doing some bench racing because of his anonymity on the Internet. His posts clearly demonstrate a lack of true understanding about cars. I used to write for one many years ago and Colby's posts never cease to entertain
22 Loud and Sexy Exhausts(May 20, 2013)Rainbow colored steel. Omg I'm in tears. Thank you for this much needed laugh. Oh man.
Cars and Coffee Charlotte(May 07, 2013)I knew someone who upgraded his Espirit with a T3/T4 hybrid turbo. Car shot flames out the exhaust like a flame thrower. It was featured in Turbo Magazine in the late 90's. Such a badass car.
Toyota GT86 Cabrio in Patent Images(Apr 16, 2013)Although I did used to publish my own import racing magazine in the 90s so I got to have quite a bit of fun. If you look on YouTube for a jet powered Ford Focus station wagon, it's an exhibition car we built. 'Twas fun to drive.
Toyota GT86 Cabrio in Patent Images(Apr 16, 2013)I agree with the feminine comment but some open cars do convey more masculinity. Open Mustangs are one. This one is unisex IMO. I used to race a Mercury Capri XR2 and I miss the drop top on it but I ended up blowing it up on the track. Too much boost
Toyota GT86 Cabrio in Patent Images(Apr 16, 2013)There are 9 of them at my office. Granted its the right demographic, there are 6 FR-S and 3 BRZ's. I thought about getting one as well until I counted how many there are at work. But then again we also have an MP4-12C, DB7, 430 Scuderia, 2 Aventadors
Mexicans to Build New Alpine A-110(Apr 12, 2013)Ford didn't make the first car, but they established the assembly line...or at least they're credited for it. Not sure why people keep thinking ford made the automobile.
Defunct Euro Carmakers: TVR(Apr 12, 2013)Oh damn I'm in the same boat as others. Didn't know they closed shop. I'd been wondering why they've been so quiet as of late. Always loved their non-conformist designs. Seeing a car on Password Swordfish made me happy.
