Geneva 2011: Land Rover Range_e Plug-In Hybrid(Mar 06, 2011)Popular Science, I believe did a calculation. Even if your electricity came from a coal plant, an electric car is still cleaner than a gas one.
@Amdy. Hybrids are fine for the consumer, where a 690mi SUV is great, and 50mpg is practical.
Geneva 2011: Koenigsegg Agera R(Mar 06, 2011)At any rate, this car is taking over 1000hp to achieve 911 Turbo (S) acceleration times, with a never used top speed.
Geneva 2011: 2012 GTA Spano(Mar 05, 2011)Like a lot of '90s supercars, the speed is great, and the weight is low, but it's not something you'd buy over a Ferrari.
Geneva 2011: Koenigsegg Agera R(Mar 05, 2011)In general, not a big fan of hypercars, sports/supercars have the most useable power. Where can you go over 15
Geneva 2011: Koenigsegg Agera R(Mar 05, 2011)I like the Veyron's amazing engineering, just not a fan of the looks though. The Veyron has almost all of it's power at a very low rpm (why the GT-R is so fast, among other factors), and the Koenigseggs have some pretty rough edges.
Geneva 2011: Toyota FT-86 Concept II(Mar 03, 2011)@Adam. There isn't anything to hate about boxers. They're flat, lending a lower center of gravity ( why PORSCHE uses them), and there's something to do with the stroke that lends power.
Geneva 2011: Mazda Minagi Concept(Mar 03, 2011)The rotaries are great, but have horrid mileage and torque. A 1.3 2-cylinder (rotor?) engine getting under 20 mpg? But all is forgiven since Mazda makes nice sports cars.
Geneva 2011: Hamann Guardian Porsche Cayenne(Mar 03, 2011)It's fine, because this car is truly horrible. A "sporty SUV" (great oxymoron) is a pointless endeavor. The Cayenne is good for one thing: and it's off-roading in pointless luxury. See their off-road demos.
Geneva 2011: Ferrari FF(Mar 02, 2011)A true successor to the 250
Breadvan and the 612. The 612 was as beige as they come, so Enzo Ferrari would be pleased.
Geneva 2011: Toyota FT-86 Concept II(Mar 02, 2011)Well, I personally don't like muscle cars all that much, but some American cars offer great speed at a low premium. It comes at a cost of interior quality.
Geneva 2011: Ferrari FF(Mar 02, 2011)Agreed. The California is even a "entry-level Ferrari for the masses". Wanna complain about a Ferrari? Find the California. This is a V12 AWD beast. Expanding their range, but staying within supercar territory.
Geneva 2011: Alfa Romeo 4C Concept(Mar 02, 2011)@K.p. The Hennessey Venom us a twin-turbo Exige. It started at 1800 lbs and ended up at 2600.
1800 lbs is how it gets done! Sexy Italian body is icing on the cake.
Geneva 2011: Novitec Rosso 599 GTO(Mar 02, 2011)Traditionally (expect for the F40 and a few other cars), Ferraris are naturally aspirated, and the V12 should stay that way. We don't need more power. I think the racing livery is great, but a factory option.
Geneva 2011: Ferrari FF(Mar 02, 2011)Brand dilution, but this is still a very capable sports car, where the Cayenne and Panamera aren't as capable as the 911. About time they do something out of the norm with 4WD. I'w warming up to that vicious smile.
Geneva 2011: Ferrari FF(Mar 02, 2011)It's unorthodox, but better than the bland 612. And it's probably pretty capable, performance wise.
Geneva 2011: Ford Ranger Wildtrack(Mar 01, 2011)It IS a great diesel, but business wise, it's better to include a gas engine. It's a shame that Americans are so anti-diesel.
Geneva 2011: Lamborghini Aventador(Mar 01, 2011)The ZR1 may be fast, but it's not a supercar. It's based off the Corvette, which is built as a sports car. Supercars are purpose-built for what they do. Just because it's American, doesn't mean it's not a supercar. The Viper and Ford GT were.
Teased: Koenigsegg Agera R(Mar 01, 2011)Not that far, but too flashy. The only comforts you need in this kind of car are good seats so you won't be thrown during turns, and an easy-to-clean interior when you wet your pants.
Teased: De Tomaso SLS(Mar 01, 2011)Cadillac, while being luxury, as questionable ergonomics and materials.
The Recaros in the CTS-V are incredible though.
