Could The Jeep Renegade Become a Three-Door?(Mar 10, 2014)Keep in mind it simply says "trail rated" it does not have very good ground clearance among other attributes that do not allow for much more than very mild off roading. It'll certainly be better than the others in its class. But not very capable stil
BMW M2 Rumors: Now On-Again(Mar 09, 2014)Only one problem Broderick, BMW has always been performance over all with just a dash of luxury as a flavor adder. Take that ethos away and you lose the company.
Can the Corvette Stingray Win Over Ferrari Owners?(Mar 08, 2014)The brands do not compete. The cars may, and the corvette may stomp the shit out of any of them, but when it comes down to a Ferrari shopper choosing a corvette instead of a Ferrari it isn't gonna happen. Maybe as a commuter but the Ferrari
Can the Corvette Stingray Win Over Ferrari Owners?(Mar 08, 2014)The other hand can willingly slow production and not bat an eye. Simply because they want to make sure their cars retain value. For a "small" company where every car counts that's incredible. And that speaks for itself.
Can the Corvette Stingray Win Over Ferrari Owners?(Mar 08, 2014)Refinement" seriously. I'm not being a snob I'd take a corvette personally over any because it's most affordable and can beat them on the track and give me equal driving enjoyment. But GM barely stayed solvent, they had to be bailed out. Ferrari, on
Can the Corvette Stingray Win Over Ferrari Owners?(Mar 08, 2014)Wfdowns, believe me I know the corvettes history. I also know Ferrari's, and Porsche's. And Astons etc, etc. the corvette, and GM as a whole does not compete with the brand identity of those companies. That's what in getting at with "pedigree and
Can the Corvette Stingray Win Over Ferrari Owners?(Mar 08, 2014)Ok I really like the corvette. I would take one over a Ferrari cause of a manual trans. But let's not forget, GM was just bailed out. Ferrari slowed their production ON PURPOSE because they simply could and wanted to keep the value of their cars up.
Can the Corvette Stingray Win Over Ferrari Owners?(Mar 07, 2014)That's not to say I think either of those are better cars, or can perform better. They don't. But the refinement and pedigree of the euro competition is as undeniable as the corvettes performance and value.
Can the Corvette Stingray Win Over Ferrari Owners?(Mar 07, 2014)This car has undeniable performance capabilities. And considering the price for what you get it simply can not be beat. If you won't consider one, that just leaves real automotive enthusiasts one more car to buy.
Can the Corvette Stingray Win Over Ferrari Owners?(Mar 07, 2014)Tara hit the nail on the head here. The corvette is a great car. I prefer it to the Italians but that being said, if I could afford a Ferrari (well Porsche in my case since that's my favorite) I'd have both and use the vette as a commuter. Save the
Girls of Geneva 2014(Mar 07, 2014)Lol Eoin, I bet you they're just dying to know what his number is to cast the ladies they use in car shows. I mean, porsche's sales certainly need the help, don't they. This woman is pretty, y'all ass hats would beg her for a moment of her time.
Girls of Geneva 2014(Mar 06, 2014)And more research shows that as of now they're only capable of around 40mph. So definitely not coming to a wheel hub near you soon. But the spokes inside perform the work of a sidewall and are flexible. So they deform as needed
Girls of Geneva 2014(Mar 06, 2014)Lou, that's why there are so many little fingers in them. They require a different kind of wheel though so I wouldn't expect this to make it out soon. But they apparently, from what I read on them awhile back, work pretty well. Time will tell.
BMW X4 Officially Revealed; We Keep Our Mouths Shut(Mar 06, 2014)V hit the nail on the head there. And sadly all these mutations they're making are hideous. Stick with the standard cars BMW. You did well with them. This deserves a horrible, slow, fire induced death.
Cars America Missed Out On: Audi RS6 Avant(Mar 03, 2014)He sadly has a point. American car enthusiasts like power wagons. The car buying populace as a whole here does not. So we don't get them. Then when a company like Cadillac decides to do us a favor and offer a nice wagon (CTS wagon) it doesn't sell.
What if Ford Built a Focus Coupe?(Mar 02, 2014)Actually yes... Ford has no variations in their car design now. I get going global and having a recognizable brand face. But it's all looking the same now. Minor differences but same shapes on all cars now.
Of Course the Camaro Z/28 Can Fly(Mar 01, 2014)Electronic bs. Just a pure, powerful, capable, and purposeful car. They aren't looking for any coddling and so a PDK and super lush interior aren't important.
Of Course the Camaro Z/28 Can Fly(Mar 01, 2014)This car is designed to best ford. And kill lap times. But let's remember this is a camaro. There Is a certain kind of person who drives a car like this. It's someone who doesn't care about refinement, they just want performance. No excessive
This is the Best New Car You Can Now Buy (Supposedly)(Feb 28, 2014)Read edmunds reviews of it. They like the car but it's been through 3 drive units (their long termer). There ARE problems with this car that aren't getting a lot of light. But tesla is replacing things for free so that's nice.
Subaru WRX STI's Engine Can't Get Any Better(Feb 20, 2014)It is more. But I haven't seen any 30whp gains on a stage 1. But I'm in a WRX so there may be a difference there. Through I haven't been able to see much between the EJ255 and 257 on dyno's at least. Torque had seemed to climb like that though.
Turns Out the Scion FR-S Isn't Selling As Well As Hoped(Feb 20, 2014)250hp/2XX lb/ft. NA motor or supercharger for throttle response etc and it'll sell well. Do a good and well sorted twin scroll turbo for better power band and it'll sell well. Neither option would be hard to build. Just do it.
Turns Out the Scion FR-S Isn't Selling As Well As Hoped(Feb 20, 2014)Pete FWD proliferates because of emissions. RWD is not an efficient (in terms of mpg) layout whereas fwd is better. This is sad news though. However, at least where I live, subaru dealerships are having a hard time keeping BRZs on the lot.
Teaser: Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Sounds Like a...?(Feb 20, 2014)The amount of exhaust tips doesn't do much for sound. Engine design, as in layout, exhaust manifold design, exhaust piping design and muffler design all play more into that. The M just has 4 tips coming out of its muffler.
Teaser: Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Sounds Like a...?(Feb 20, 2014)Power wise the M3 won't touch this. But let's just hope that infinity did something about the much "praised" steering. Cause so far the Q50 can't touch a BMW in terms of driving. But I like the looks of this more than the admittedly pretty M3/4
