2015 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is One Sexy Bimmer(Mar 05, 2014)this car isn't redundant or useless, it's just the opposite. but it does make the 3 series redundant and useless... other than price, why would anyone go for a regular sedan when they could have a fastback sedan?
GM to Buy Tesla in 2014?(Jan 02, 2014)the volt had potential, especially when the concept car came out. then they trend it into a Prius. I will admit it is a move in the right direction as far as typical hideous EV proportions are concerned. makes no sense why they couldn't make a normal
Porsche Sending Experts to Aid in Paul Walker Crash Mystery(Dec 20, 2013)I highly doubt rodas was pushing the car to its limits. and as long as they were not endangering anyone but themselves, and they accepted that rodas held both of their lives in his hands, I can't blame them for speeding in a carrera gt on an empty rd
Ford Dabbles with Autonomous Driving(Dec 17, 2013)as long as enthusiasts don't end up at the butt end of a sick joke, I'm willing to try coexisting with autonomous vehicles on the highway that behave predictably, understand what a safe following distance is, and leave the fast lane open for me :)
Audi Planning New A9 Allroad?(May 07, 2013)I see no market for this. A9 should be a big coupe, slotted above the 6 series and around the sl, but sportier. oh and it should only come in S form, with a 7 speed manual
Porsche 918 Spyder Will Likely Sell Out(May 06, 2013)@ilya dude almost all of porshe's 2 door cars look better than the 911, except for maybe the first gen boxster. Carerra, cayman, this, the speedster, etc
BMW M Running on 3 Cylinders?(May 06, 2013)what happened to smoothness? pushing 310 out of a 3 cyl sounds like pushing 1200 Hp out of a supra i6. I'd rather have a silky NA BMW v8 with 310 or a w16 with 1200 versus the first two. and a 3 will sound terrible
Mercedes Reveals CLA Accessories(May 06, 2013)I do not want Facebook and twitter invading my car. or anyone's I'm sharing the road with. texting while driving is bad enough, soon they'll be making commercials like: this was the last tweet he left before the accident -
Jaguar Proceeding with Q-Type SUV(May 02, 2013)I actually loved the r class. when my parents were looking to get a minivan, I was begging for the them to get one. an Amg version meant that if you had to drive your mom's van to school, NO ONE could give you any crap haha
Mercedes Builds Affordable Luxury(Apr 28, 2013)aventador. one is modern and technically better, with all the precision of an Audi. the other is a little noisy, cramped, and has terrible blind spots. but which one is more of an EVENT to drive? which one separates itself from every other car on the
Mercedes Builds Affordable Luxury(Apr 28, 2013)brad put it nicely, if you want maximum performance ten go for the dual clutch. but I you want to be a part of the car and enjoy it, go manual. it's holding onto a form of connection with the road. it's like the difference between a countache and an
This Wrecked Pagani Zonda is for Sale(Apr 28, 2013)I hate how a good bit of my sympathy for the guy slips away when I hear that he avoided doing probably the most important thing before driving a really powerful car...
Mercedes Builds Affordable Luxury(Apr 27, 2013)I agree. however, the thought of a car guy being happy with an automatic transmission "guessing" the right gear most of the time bothers me soo much right now LOL. I'd rather do it myself, thanks.
Porsche Cayman by Techart(Apr 26, 2013)digging the rims. I'm wondering when a tuner will grow a pair and finally show us what the cayman is truly capable of. drop a 911 spec engine in it, give it 400+ horsepower, and it will still cost less than a 911 while handling better!
Benz Planning CLA Shooting Brake?(Apr 25, 2013)yea screw wagons. if I'm getting an RS Audi I'm going all out with the rs5, not a souped up, disproportionate-by-design rs6 wagon
Audi Reveals TT Ultra Quattro(Apr 25, 2013)you're right guys, looks too beetle ish. the reason I liked this version was because it was so much better than the old one. now I'm seeing the ugly bits on this one lol
Fiat Builds its Millionth 500(Apr 24, 2013)I can see how it would be popular in small euro cities. I'm sure it's the sportier alternative to the usual for those people. but I see a decent amount of them in the Bay Area...
@john you're right, I can't afford to limit myself to a fiat when
McLaren Shifts Focus to P13(Apr 24, 2013)normally I'd be with mclaren, but the gt3rs seems like so much more of an event/experience when you're driving it than the mp4. and. I think it has a manual :)
McLaren Shifts Focus to P13(Apr 24, 2013)notice how the 911 gas been slowly becoming mid-engined over the years. at some point they just need to do it and screw the back seats
McLaren Shifts Focus to P13(Apr 24, 2013)I'm kinda with Brittany. maybe not replace it, but modernize its looks a bit. at some point the new model will have to make a bigger evolutionary leap than usual to keep up with this new competition
Maserati: EVs are "Nonsense"(Apr 23, 2013)screw the volt but I have mad respect for the model s, I see a red one with black rims around campus all the time. and it's quicker than an m5 x) only ev I like though
Nissan Leaf Pulls Taxi Duty in NY(Apr 23, 2013)now this is an idea I like. replace all government funded and public transportation with electric vehicles. that way none of us car guys are forced to buy one
Honda Presents Crider to China(Apr 22, 2013)I like how the downmarket companies in America like Honda, Hyundai and Toyota have their front logos all small in the states but the second they try to break into the Chinese market they want to reinvent themselves and display their logos prominently
Ford Escort is a Familiar Name(Apr 22, 2013)why do automakers find it so difficult to make a good looking practical car??? about the best I can think of is the 3 series sedan and its competitors, and those are more upmarket
F-Type Gunning for 911(Apr 22, 2013)MANUAL! this isn't a track car, it's a fun canyon carver. unless you're constantly up to redline and timing yourself to a tenth a of a second, millisecond shift times are more of a gimmick than a necessity.
