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.
F-Type Gunning for 911(Apr 22, 2013)what Douglas? you know how much engineering went into to F type? didn't think so.
Bentley Planning Four-Door Coupe?(Apr 22, 2013)the days of old do not apply to cars nowadays. ive seen 2 door giant Cadillac "sedans" and those make perfect sense. but the cls, if anything , is just a better looking sedan. a lack of rear headroom does not = coupe automatically
Nissan Friend-Me Bows in China(Apr 21, 2013)90% of the people on your fb are "acquaintances" anyway, it's just a giant marketing network at this point.
Nissan Friend-Me Bows in China(Apr 21, 2013)absolutely disgusted with the route cars like this are taking. if manufacturers are looking to sustain their market, they need to do one thing- bring the fun back into driving for the new generation. make cars emotional again. not FB connected.
Porsche Goes Dutch for Boxster Red 7(Apr 21, 2013)the newest boxter is a completely different car than the 911, I've driven it both and I'd say I'd get each one for a different purpose
Jaguar Delivers 1st F-Types in Style(Apr 20, 2013)I think you can't compare their looks directly. for its time the etype was the best looking car out there. nowadays, the f type is definitely up there, but Astons vanquish gives them a run for their money
Jaguar Delivers 1st F-Types in Style(Apr 20, 2013)I find this car to be in its own category, IMO it caters to a different type of driver than the 911, vette, and others. and I'd take it over most of them. if you watch the reviews it has not been compared to anything. I'd take an Aston over it tho
Top 5 Tuned F12 Berlinettas(Apr 20, 2013)even rich people have bad taste. someone had to take one for the team and get their market share...
5 Failed Auto Revivals(Apr 16, 2013)way too bland. we don't need another one of these floating around on the highways
Saab Planned a New Sonnet(Apr 16, 2013)I never really cared for them either, but my buddy has one that's really fun to ride in.... or maybe that's just his insane driving lol
Saab Planned a New Sonnet(Apr 16, 2013)Colby. How would you feel if GM killed off the vette for the same reasons you just described? I know it's unlikely, but that doesn't give you a right to insult Saab and the people that liked their cars any more than they already have been. shit.
Guinness Restores Bugatti’s Record(Apr 14, 2013)there were only like 30 super sports made and 10 or so venoms. people are saying that there is a difference between these 2 as far as being "production" cars???
Nissan Teases Friend-ME Concept(Apr 11, 2013)and tweeting in their cars in the near future. where does it stop?? why can't people get back to enjoying driving instead of moving towards a fully autonomous vehicle like the gov and manufacturers act like we need to ??
Nissan Teases Friend-ME Concept(Apr 11, 2013)alright. they just banned using your gps on your phone in your car in California because it is "distracting". I say screw that because I need to know where I'm going. but I am straight scared of people getting distracted by checking their newsfeeds
Top 5 Mercedes Supercars(Apr 11, 2013)the front of this car has always been interesting to me, half cool design and half clk that crashed into a wedge
Porsche Reminisces About the 917(Apr 10, 2013)today things might not seem groundbreaking cuz there's a group of companies all constantly upping the ante together, as opposed to just Ferrari and Porsche in the 959's day
