McLaren 12C by AutoDynamica(May 09, 2013)The real issue is how they were able to extract that much power just from an ECU and exhaust upgrade. That just means the 12C was detuned from day one as not to cannibalize sales of a future halo car.
Mazda Pondering MX-5 Diesel(May 05, 2013)Current models are around 2,500-2,600, but also have around 166hp. The new model will have less power and torque. At 1.3 liters I am curious to see what the power curve will look like.
Mazda Pondering MX-5 Diesel(May 05, 2013)Wankel might as well be diesel with all the oil the gas version burns. I want to see a stock Mazda with sub 5 0-60 times that would get my attention.
Mazda Pondering MX-5 Diesel(May 05, 2013)I'm 5'7 and 205 so I guess I'm overweight too? No. If you're an adult male and 115 pounds you should make a dr's appointment to be sure your gonads aren't mini-ovaries. I owned a 2008 mx-5 I bought brand new and fit me just fine.
Depreciation Kings: Saab 9-3(May 02, 2013)It's supposed to be unique, quirky and funky, remember? While they were relocating ignition switches, they should have relocated the drive wheels. Maybe they would've sold a little better...
Depreciation Kings: Saab 9-3(May 02, 2013)I'm so sick of people calling Saab "unique," "quirky," "funky," or any number of undeserved adjectives. Perhaps it could be called one of those at its inception, but the Saabs I can think of were FF 4&6 pots. Hardly worth mentioning in my opinion.
Depreciation Kings: Mercedes CL55 AMG(May 01, 2013)Whatever sticker price savings you may realize will quickly vanish when something breaks. This cars are cheap because maintaining a ten year old Mercedes can be quite costly.
Depreciation Kings: Cadillac Escalade(Apr 29, 2013)In fact, I see mostly suburban Caucasians driving Escalades, but I guess they just want to be flashy and ostentatious too? Or maybe they just like the Escalade. Personally I don't care for it and am highly unlikely to ever purchase one, but I can..
Depreciation Kings: Cadillac Escalade(Apr 29, 2013)It's there in black an white: The Escalade is the most stolen vehicle in America. In other words, someone wants them. They are still in demand, resale values non-withstabding. Furthermore I see more NON athletes and NON entertainers driving them
Depreciation Kings: Cadillac Escalade(Apr 29, 2013)Some stereotypes have a basis in reality, but the real issue is that so many people choose to ridicule those with differing opinions without first attempting to understand the logic behind their decision making...
MG Roadster to Return?(Apr 28, 2013)Why rival Mazda when it can complement it as an upmarket alternative to the MX-5. Share the platform but add some additional luxury touches and a more potent power plant. That would make a winner.
Hyundai Reveals Equus by Hermes(Mar 30, 2013)This is unbelievable. Hermés makes T-SHIRTS that cost more than a fully-loaded Equus. How can they make a Hermés Equus? Next they'll make Wrangler Rolls Royce.
Audi R10 Hypercar Coming Soon(Mar 22, 2013)Just make a street-legal version of this with a McLaren F1-esque "3 across seat configuration and call it day.
SRT Viper TA Seeks Redemption(Mar 21, 2013)While I am a fan of both incredible cars one thing worth mentioning is exclusiveness. The cheapest Vette you can buy is around 50; Viper? Almost double, and at least with a Viper you won't have to worry about seeing a soccer mom driving one.
Top 5 Spec Racing Cars(Mar 19, 2013)I want to know what criteria are used to determine the "top 5." Porsche is the only one I agree with. Ferrari and Lambo sell far fewer cup cars, and Mazda (which isn't on the list) outsells them all.
Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster Gets Jacked(Nov 27, 2011)@Ryan-wheel lock kits can be bought over the Internet that can unscrew ANY wheel lock. I think they're illegal to possess, but who cares if you are engaging in illegal activity anyway...
