VW Unveils its New Midsize Coupe(16 hours ago)This is not a coupe. The "4 door coupe" should have a very raked rear section. This looks like your typical sedan. Marketing ploy by VW to trick people into thinking they made something new.
Lifted Wrangler Rocks Forgiato Offroad Wheels(Apr 19, 2014)This is utterly pointless. Ok so you can go down a dirt county road and be "off road" so can my subaru. You've effectively turned a wrangler into a CRV. Good job morons.
Chevy Corvette Z06 Convertible is an Open-Top Wonder(Apr 18, 2014)Hell, Porsche dropped the manual in their track oriented GT3. So the simple fact that the Z06 is even offered with a manual in light of nearly every good, fast car not offering a manual we should be ok.
Porsche 911 GT3 RS Powers into Focus(Apr 17, 2014)It's got AWD. GT3 and GT3 RS are RWD. So there's why. As for price, all of Porsche's road racing tech that can functionally be on a road car is present on the GT3/RS/2 etc so those models are kinda the pinnacle of the 911. The Turbo is not.
2015 Dodge Challenger Coupe Unveiled in New York(Apr 17, 2014)Not yet. The new chassis is supposed to come with the challengers replacement, the barracuda. Smaller and lighter. This is still a shortened ancient E class merc from the Daimler Chrysler days.
The TLX May Be Acura's Last Hope for Relevance(Apr 17, 2014)So the 4 banger gets a dual clutch but the more powerful engine a traditional auto? Why not give them both a dual clutch. Kinda shooting any chance of competing with sport lux cars this is aimed at.
2015 Dodge Challenger Coupe Unveiled in New York(Apr 17, 2014)My god, ty, it's like you're a breeding ground of stupidity. Your total lack of any cognitive thought sadly, seems to find its way onto nearly every picture spreading your disorder to otherwise good conversation. Give it up. You're not funny.
Chevy Corvette Z06 Convertible is an Open-Top Wonder(Apr 17, 2014)This isn't overrated. Sorry man. I love classics and I bet your Chevelle is great kudos on having one. But this is far and away not an overrated car. Not for the money. Not for anything. Eoin, look back a couple days when GM released the pics, they
Chevy Corvette Z06 Convertible is an Open-Top Wonder(Apr 17, 2014)The pictures aren't very good. Poor lighting for one and secondly in person this interior is quite nice. I think they could have done better but it's definitely not a bad interior or a let down when you sit in there.
Porsche 911 GT3 RS Powers into Focus(Apr 17, 2014)That spoiler doesn't look very Porsche to me. I have a feeling it's a tack on for testing but not the finished product. If indeed this is a GT3 this body isn't gonna make it. Only the turbo models get the side intakes.
Porsche 911 GT3 RS Powers into Focus(Apr 17, 2014)Doesn't appear to be a GT3 RS. Unless they're running all the GT3 hardware in a turbo body. But when the GT3 already has a wide body why would they unless the scoops were needed?
2015 Toyota Camry: "Best We’ve Ever Built"(Apr 16, 2014)The Lexus front end works here better than on Lexus. Leading me to think I would actually be ok with Lexus if they didn't make their headlights ugly as sin.
Next-Gen Mitsubishi Evolution Could be a Crossover(Apr 16, 2014)Something consumers want eh? They want an EVO. Not a fucking SUC you MORONS. This is why Mitsubishi is failing as a manufacturer. They've completely lost sight of what the customer actually WANTS.
Too Soon to Say Goodbye: Jaguar XKR-S GT(Apr 15, 2014)@joe grant. They were already planning to get rid of this car before the ftype even came out. This chassis has run to the end of its life so this was a farewell special edition.
W Motors to Reveal 770HP Lykan Hypersport in Monaco(Apr 15, 2014)Hmmm 800k for an 800+ hp Porsche 918. 1+ mil for a 900hp and arguably the most radical car made, P1. Another mil for the Ferrari the Ferrari. 1 mil for a 1200 hp Venom, and then there's the one:1 as well. All cheaper and probably better.
Lexus May Have Struck Gold With the New NX(Apr 14, 2014)I can't stand Lexus' new styling. I just can't. I'm sure it's a wonderful vehicle as are a lot of their cars. But I really just can't like this. Worst looking car since the Aztec IMO.
VW to Debut a Golf Sportwagen Concept in NY(Apr 14, 2014)Well, Nathan, for one it's a turbo diesel. Unless it's running twins, which it is not. There's only one exhaust pipe. I know they could have run a different muffler and split the pipes, and I think that would look good. But there's no need too.
VW to Debut a Golf Sportwagen Concept in NY(Apr 14, 2014)Because diesels offer more torque and much better fuel economy. This is a fantastic match. Don't get me wrong gassers are cool but in this case, they couldn't have chosen better.
Investment Fraudster's 21 Supercars Sent to Auction(Apr 14, 2014)I don't quite understand his buying of this and the other "lesser" cars. It's not like he needed to be sensible. He didn't work for or earn the money he spent to buy this collection, so buying reasonable cars doesn't make sense.
Investment Fraudster's 21 Supercars Sent to Auction(Apr 14, 2014)These damn things. Went for around 50k brand new. You can't pick up a low miles used 1M now for that. The damn things appreciated the minute BMW stopped production and have climbed ever since. Fantastic little cars. E30 spiritual successor.
Engine-Fire Destroys 2-Week Old 2014 Mercedes S-Class(Apr 14, 2014)These cars nowadays that is causing a rise in catastrophic failures like these engine fires across the board? It seems every manufacturer is experiencing stuff like this whether it be fires or some other really bad failure.
Engine-Fire Destroys 2-Week Old 2014 Mercedes S-Class(Apr 14, 2014)Ha yeah. Completely invalidated his pointless "argument." Anyways, it seems to be a trend now. Not only with brands such as GM, but Porsche, Ferrari, I know ford had some issues with the small ecoboost too. What is going on in the production of
VW to Debut a Golf Sportwagen Concept in NY(Apr 13, 2014)V exactly what I was going to say. The exclusion of AWD has always been a turn off for me for this. But diesel AWD and manual pretty much makes for a perfect little car.
Say Hello to the 2015 Lexus NX(Apr 11, 2014)I used to like Lexus. Their cars looked good and were decent. Now I hate the looks. So Lexus is completely off the radar to me now. Burn these things with fire. They're as bad as the bangle BMWs
Watch an SRT Viper Race an F-16 Fighter Jet(Apr 11, 2014)Top of the console about where the boom from the refueler would be. They told the general while they were refueling that they could get snacks and drinks from the boom operators. So they rolled the plane a little and made the can clunck and said,
Watch an SRT Viper Race an F-16 Fighter Jet(Apr 11, 2014)Refueling is a wonderful time to play tricks too. One of my favorite stories from my time AWACS in the USAF there was a Marine general on a flight to see what the plane could do. They had to go refuel and one of the pilots stuck a coke can up in the
Watch an SRT Viper Race an F-16 Fighter Jet(Apr 10, 2014)On a side note, has anyone seen the video of the crew chiefs throwing frogs into the vortex in front of a f-16? Toss em a bit in front and the engine just pulls them in. That was a short lived AF career there.
