Lamborghini Chief Rejects Hybrids: 'None for Us'(about a minute ago)Saying "as long as possible" is not saying "none for us," instead, it implies that until they feel the need, they won't. Basically this actually confirms they WILL, just not for now...
Is the BMW i8 a Worthy Heir to the Epic M1?(Mar 10, 2014)Maybe if it was called the "M8" or "i1" we could POSSIBLY accept it as an heir..but it's clear this is not BMW's successor to the M1, in name, in spirit, or in form/application. Literally couldn't be further from each other.
Is the BMW i8 a Worthy Heir to the Epic M1?(Mar 10, 2014)What? I reread that like 3x and it still is just a broken mess. What are you trying to say? Unique = supercar? Sure, since supercar is a relative term, you personally can determine whatever you want. To me it's not one, to you it is....apparently?
Is the BMW i8 a Worthy Heir to the Epic M1?(Mar 10, 2014)"legendary supercar" = m1
Can't an M3 outrun and outperform the i8? The i8 isn't anything close to a supercar. Sports car? Exotic? Sure. But not supercar.
Article is blasphemy, comparing the two.
Some Insane Facts About the Koenigsegg One:1(Mar 08, 2014)2950? See I wonder what Mini they are talking about, because according to Motor Trend, the standard Mini Cooper has a gross weight of 2,525lb, or a good 400lb less. This is why non-absolute, qualitative statements about a car's statistics = dumb.
Some Insane Facts About the Koenigsegg One:1(Mar 08, 2014)Brad's not wrong. There's 12 new, mass-market econo-cars that weigh in less than a Mini, for just 2014. I'd rather know the actual weight, versus an arbitrary "lighter than X car" statement.
The Mini Cooper S Countryman All4 even weighs 3255lb.
Koenigsegg Breaks Out Special Edition One:1 with 1,340HP!(Mar 05, 2014)So stop being so idiotic; there is no defined, agreed, and/or professional definition for either supercar, or hypercar.
You sound like my brother when he was going through puberty, and was upset about every little thing. Just stop already. Ughhh
Koenigsegg Breaks Out Special Edition One:1 with 1,340HP!(Mar 05, 2014)And your example of Ferrari classifying it is equally pointless; Without a professional association that governs the definitions and constraints of a classification, the class can be as narrow or broad as anyone wants it to be. Ie, relative.
Koenigsegg Breaks Out Special Edition One:1 with 1,340HP!(Mar 05, 2014)It's like arguing over a preference; the nature of a preference is subject to the value of the utility derived by the individual. Much like Supercars and Hypercars- there is no professional association that bestows a definition to it/on to cars.
Koenigsegg Breaks Out Special Edition One:1 with 1,340HP!(Mar 05, 2014)And for what it's worth, the article did choose to define the Lambo Reventon as a hypercar.
"Supercars vs Hypercars - what are Hypercars?"
Koenigsegg Breaks Out Special Edition One:1 with 1,340HP!(Mar 05, 2014)So I googled "define hypercar" and the first article that came up said it is a concept car. So you're both wrong.
The second article actually dove in to the topic though, and correctly surmised that there is no agreed constraints for either.
Koenigsegg Breaks Out Special Edition One:1 with 1,340HP!(Mar 05, 2014)@Iam- good point about the hybrid P1, 918, and LaFerrari. My only caveat is that each of these derive the majority of their power from standard combustion, meaning the "instant" (electrical motor) is the minority composition. Good point tho!
Koenigsegg Breaks Out Special Edition One:1 with 1,340HP!(Mar 04, 2014)And since you have to practice to understand NA power curve behavior, you might as well as admit that you could also practice to understand Forced Induction behavior. IE, I don't have to react AFTER, as I can learn to predict BEFORE.
Koenigsegg Breaks Out Special Edition One:1 with 1,340HP!(Mar 04, 2014)The slope of their power curve would have to be y = 1, wherein the "curve" is not a curve, and is actually flat, meaning power is instant rather than needing to be built subject to rpm. All gasoline cars require a change in rpm, to change power.
Koenigsegg Breaks Out Special Edition One:1 with 1,340HP!(Mar 04, 2014)@gary "instant power" so you must be a big fan of EV's, because not even one single gasoline powered car has "instant power."
Every gasoline car has a power curve with variable returns to input. Every. Single. One.
First Official Pics of the 2015 Jeep Renegade(Mar 03, 2014)That would be something positive, if fiat actually held positive marks in those areas. Don't confuse Fiat with it's own holdings; Fiat the company has terrible build issues; it's assets (Ferrari, etc) enjoy notably sovereignty. Don't confuse the two.
First Official Pics of the 2015 Jeep Renegade(Mar 03, 2014)Travesty. To desecrate the name of Jeep and Renegade, with blasphemy such as this??!! My god- it would be like if fiat forced Ferrari to start making minivans, and Maserati to make Neons..! Fuck Fiat.
Lotus Reveals More Pics and Details of Carbon-Clad C-01 Motorbike(Feb 25, 2014)200hp and no wind screen? Have fun hanging on at 180mph with no screen.
It must be that it's designed for wheelies and stunt riding...
Oh wait, you don't need 200hp for that either...so this bike doesn't make any sense to me at all. Plus it's ugly
Ruski G65 AMG Gets Crocodile Leather Carbon Fiber Interior(Feb 19, 2014)If I were a gangster, and no- not a pathetic "gangster from the hood" or any "gangster rapper" -but a true Casino owning, millionaire Gangster with a capital "G," then I would buy this car....otherwise, it's just absurd. Haha
These Are the Most Expensive Cars to Own(Feb 11, 2014)How could the dodge dart make this list? It's been out for...1 year? 2??
What- they already know it's maintenance costs, with like zero consumer cars breaching 1-2 years of ownership ??
Toyota TRD Pro Lineup Charges into Chicago(Feb 07, 2014)Only marginal profit (MP) per unit is returned to Toyota; and USA Today recently reported on the compact pickup market, saying that the MP for this segment is terrible (hence very few compact trucks these days).
Don't get your panties on a knot...!
Tesla Finally Gets a Name in China(Jan 28, 2014)Kind of a boring interior. Nothing flashy about it...for 80k it could look a bit better. Really reminds me of like a 1990s K car.
Dodge Needs to Get Its Act Together - Fast(Jan 28, 2014)Dodge lost it's relevance when they split it into Ram and SRT.
Pretty sure a house divided cannot stand...point being, with Chrysler handling all "entry-luxury," Jeep handling all SUV, SRT handling performance, and Ram the trucks. Leaves Dodge..??
Radical RXC Now Street-Legal in the US(Jan 25, 2014)I guess you could drive one of these on the road. I've always wanted to know what it's like to drive 10mph on a gridlocked I-5, in a race car. Must be SO DIFFERENT...at least it has great interio...oh crap....
2015 Ford Mustang GT and Convertible Power into Detroit(Jan 15, 2014)This is kinda messed up. Looking at the stock version, it looks about 50% completed...which means any special runs they do, will look awesome. An economic pricing scheme meant to establish a sub-standard and premium label. Ugh
Watch a Giant Claw Destroy a Dodge Viper(Jan 08, 2014)How many shitty cameramen can there be? Seriously. The reason you film, is to show said film to other people...so what the hell is the point of a blurry, shaky film!? Arg
Chrysler is Now Fully Italian Owned(Jan 02, 2014)@Cam: they ARE making Jeeps wimpy. The new Jeep Cherokee is built on the Dodge Dart platform, which itself is a Fiat small sedan platform. Pretty sure that's the definition of turning Jeeps into wimpy cars.
Car Mod Atrocities: Part VIII(Jan 02, 2014)Obviously a tribute car. See this is why people who want car-buzz to only be about cars, are stupid. Yes, if you're an ignorant fool, this paint scheme looks questionable. But if you know history, the paint matches RR history perfectly.
So Chevy, What's Your Response to the New Mustang?(Dec 30, 2013)@David:
If price divided by performance, is the metric you're going to use to compare...1 word: motorcycle.
For a seventh of the price of this, they'll tear this a new one. So..yes. Overpriced given it's performance.
Alpina B7 Drags Dodge Challenger SRT8 at the Strip(Dec 28, 2013)The interiors on these new Challengers are pretty nice- although I've never been in the SRT trim level. I'm curios if the SRT goes more performance oriented, or more plush oriented, in the SRT version. Sweet car though!
5 Cars That'll Get You Through Winter(Dec 28, 2013)Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; as such, anyone that thinks that having a capable sports sedan in the snow is a beautiful thing (as I do) believes this is a hell of a good lookin car...
Top 5 Sports Car Debuts of 2013(Dec 27, 2013)And I'm entirely correct about this photo. When fat people are photographed, and a vertical skew is applied, they appear fairly normal.
But when healthy people are photographed, and a vertical skew (or flat aspect ratio) is applied...looks weird.
Top 5 Sports Car Debuts of 2013(Dec 27, 2013)Besides, there is a difference between an insult, and a fact. Just because the truth hurts, doesn't mean it's not true.
Top 5 Sports Car Debuts of 2013(Dec 27, 2013)The prevalence of obesity in the USA exceeds 27%.
So more than 1 out of every 4 Americans are fatass lards. That's a fact. Considering automobiles are all about SITTING, I'd bet the prevalence to be extra high in this s group.
Top 5 Sports Car Debuts of 2013(Dec 25, 2013)American AND ignorant...
Alright Sherlock- only one large "state" exceeds the USA in the prevalence of obesity (that's Mexico), and it didn't surpass the USA until this year (2013). Obesity in the US is so bad, the CDC declared it an endemic. Lol
Devel 16 Just a Bullshit Marketing Stunt?(Dec 17, 2013)W motors is based in Beirut.
That's the capitol of Lebanon.
Hezbollah is based from Lebanon.
This is clearly a Hezbollah weapons platform, and those are functional cannon (apparently they couldn't afford mortars). Lololol
BMW Bike Destroys 2 Top Supercars(Dec 14, 2013)Haha look at all the fanboys that are butthurt that the million dollar cars got spanked. Talk about sore losers... "Here for the CARbuzz" -didn't you see the two cars, or not?
Mercedes C-Class Can't Stop Leaking(Dec 13, 2013)If evolutionary means they dropped the classic C class look, and instead popped the S class on it, then yes. This is evolutionary crap.
2015 Mustang Has Burnout Control(Dec 12, 2013)Hey I can accept common ground; if when its released, its just a glorified line-lock, then I'll be the first to call it that. The reason why it matters, is because my source described the system as "drift friendly." Which does not equivalent to a LL.
