Lincoln Desperately Needs a Rear-Wheel-Drive Sedan(Apr 14, 2014)...and they're not even considered a luxury brand. Ford is missing out in a golden opportunity here. The profit margins on luxury cars is insane, especially when they can share parts and technology. Just research how much Porsche makes per car!
Lincoln Desperately Needs a Rear-Wheel-Drive Sedan(Apr 14, 2014)The MKZ is really a futuristic looking car in person, but the appeal stops there. At this point Lincoln has to EXCEED expectations, not just be comparable to the competition. Hyundai's lineup blows Lincoln out of the water...
Lexus Really Wants F to Stand for M(Apr 11, 2014)LFA is complete sold out and at 500 units it's low volume. That leaves only one "volume" F model: ISF. There is no F "family." Nice try Lexus. You're fooling no one.
Forget the Evo; Could the Mitsubishi 3000GT Return?(Apr 07, 2014)I could see this with a RWD platform and electric motors for the front wheels. Of course in reality it will be just the opposite. I seriously doubt performance will be even a remote priority...
The Outgoing Mustang is Still Kicking Sales Ass(Apr 04, 2014)I think the '15 will be much more refined. I bout the '11 brand new and felt my old '08 MX-5 was a more refined car. The '15 will have a V-8 AND IRS so finally I can have my cake and eat it too.
Mitsubishi Evo to Be Sent to Car Heaven(Mar 31, 2014)We represent a boisterous, yet small minority. The masses, however want cheap, fuel efficient cars. Unfortunately, Mitso has rather poor marketing so even their target demographic won't be looking for their cars.
Alfa Romeo to Receive Ferrari Power(Mar 27, 2014)American Audi I'm guessing. I know in Europe you can opt for FWD base models, but I don't know about here since I've never owned one.
The 5 Most Embarrassing Cars Today(Mar 27, 2014)People who own these (my cousin) have all the disclaimers memorized: "it actually has Toyota engine." "It's really roomy inside." "You won't believe the rebates they offer on these."
Can the Corvette Stingray Win Over Ferrari Owners?(Mar 08, 2014)Just look online at the Ferrari prank video when the guy tries to talk to girls and they blow him off until he references his Ferrari (rented). Ferrari has MANY benefits beyond the driving experience!!!
Cars America Missed Out On: Alfa Romeo Giulietta(Mar 08, 2014)I'm in Europe right now and I just saw a burgundy one yesterday. It looked VERY nice in person. Probably one of the best hatchbacks I've seen, period..
...and I don't really care for hatchbacks except the Clio Sport V-6
The Accord is Eating Camry Sales for Breakfast(Feb 24, 2014)The Accord has moved considerably upmarket while the Camry has stagnated both mechanically and aesthetically. The Accord is just a better buy at the same price point. As a matter of fact, the Accord is rendering some Acura purchases illogical.
BMW Heading Forward with FWD-Only Models(Feb 14, 2014)...production costs are still the same. Then the FWD models are cheaper to produce and they will share componentry with mini to further add to profit margins. It's the smart business move since most buyers only care about the badge anyway...
BMW Heading Forward with FWD-Only Models(Feb 14, 2014)It all makes business sense. Add "entry level" FWD models to the lineup, and move the RWD models further up market. Even if only by a thousand or two each model, that adds considerably to profit margins when you consider that...
Car Mod Atrocities: Part IX(Feb 05, 2014)People like Timothy Chen and his mini-me's love to talk reckless on the net but freeze up in face to face encounters. Anything that comes out of my keyboard would just as easily come out of my mouth.
Car Mod Atrocities: Part IX(Feb 05, 2014)There's a guy in my neighborhood whose jeep looks just like this but it is a full hard top. Guess what? He's WHITE and blasts rock music every time he's in it.
Heffner Dodge Viper GTS Vs. Aventador Vs. Nissan GT-R(Feb 01, 2014)Good for RWD??? Y'all do realize funny cars and top fuel dragsters are RWD, right. They are that way for a reason. It is a superior setup for drag racing. AWD setups increase curb weights which adversely affects pass times.
BMW Bike Destroys 2 Top Supercars(Dec 15, 2013)About $18k. Bikes are faster in straights but cars are always faster on tracks, but at the end of the day, what car can be had for under $20K with that kind of performance? NONE.
BMW Bike Destroys 2 Top Supercars(Dec 15, 2013)I don't understand why people are so bent out of shape over a bike comparison. It's good to see where technology is and how it translates to real-world performance. I still rather have either one of the cars over the bike!
Ford Mustang's New Benchmarks: M3 and 911(Dec 10, 2013)I think we will all be quite surprised at the numbers in comparison to the m4 and 911, especially considering it will be delivered at a mere fraction of the cost. Now the interior? Ford has a LONG way to go in that department.
Corvette Receiving 8-Speed Gearbox(Dec 09, 2013)I'm thinking they mean handle the additional power. Are they thinking about a high performance automatic? Perhaps a ZR-1 auto (yuck)?
Hear the New Mustang GT Rev its V8(Dec 08, 2013)On another note, I think the Mustang looks so much cleaner without the spoiler. I, in fact, removed the spoiler from my 2011, and loved it...
Hear the New Mustang GT Rev its V8(Dec 08, 2013)Sounds slightly more aggressive than the current Mustang while stock. A lot of you commenting on here know absolutely nothing about cars. For those of you who fit the aforesaid description, KEEP QUIET. You're like the people in the video...
The Ford GT is Better than Anything from Europe(Dec 08, 2013)Ford needs something in its lineup that's a true corvette competitor, not just in performance, but price. I'm sorry but the GT500 is based on an inferior Mustang platform and was never a true competitor, despite it being a great car.
Hennessey Puts The Chevrolet SS on the Dyno(Dec 08, 2013)Still too expensive. This is where Lincoln could capitalize. Instead of making the lackluster crap they've been putting out, they could build a sedan off a stretched version of the mustang platform with the same V-8. A true sports sedan...
