Harris Drives Porsche 918 Spyder(May 17, 2013)Yea Id like to see a limited, Non hybrid version, where the heavy motors/batteries/4wd system is removed. Maybe call it the 918L (for maybe lightweight). Hell, they could slightly retune for 650hp, and I think it would be awesome. Of co
Rare Corvette C6RS Up For Sale(May 16, 2013)This has more power than the actual P&M race version, folks. The race version (C6.R) mandates no more than 485hp. For the record, the race version (C6.R) beat the ZR1 by 13 seconds/lap (Miller). This C6RS has an additional 115hp- I'm sure it rocks.
Rare Corvette C6RS Up For Sale(May 15, 2013)@Oleg- U mean a McLaren? Or a F1 race car? Or some other car? Not sure what you're saying. But if u can find a street legal F1 car, you're my hero..but the prob with F1 physics, u need high speed to function, meaning real danger below 100mph..
Rare Corvette C6RS Up For Sale(May 15, 2013)Christ- it's a damn miracle this race-car is even street legal, and this chump is complaining about its leather wrapped, diamond stitched, kush interior?
God- its obviously apparent that modern medicine is ruining Darwin's natural selection....
Rare Corvette C6RS Up For Sale(May 15, 2013)Ok c'mon folks- just because a random bid (could be the opening bid) is $110,000, doesn't mean it's only going to go for that amount. Chances are- its going for much higher. And obviously worth it. It's essentially a fully custom race car, for street
Supercars Invade the Highway(May 15, 2013)Haha the audio on that was perhaps the WORST audio I have ever heard! C'mon, man! There's two parts to every video: the visual, and the audio- this video made Ferrari's sound like UPS trucks on Christmas Eve. Pure crap.
Tesla Model S Outsells German Rivals(May 14, 2013)Love almost everything about it, except the front grill. I'm even ok with the shape, but that weird plastic black part really reminds me of that new Hyundai Elantra GT front end.
Lamborghini Egoista is Pure Insanity(May 13, 2013)So sick. Motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere should be excited by this. Say they make this- imagine seeing like 4 of these carving up some canyon road- it's literally as if the spirit of a motorcycle has been reincarnated as a supercar.
Lamborghini Egoista is Pure Insanity(May 13, 2013)Finally! A single seater that is actually sexier than a Ducati Paningale! I'd take this anyday!! Question is- can we buy them in pairs? Haha id totally go bombing down HWAY 101 in this, with my buddies of course!
Lamborghini Egoista is Pure Insanity(May 13, 2013)@Carlos: Wait it has tires too?? It's copying ALL cars!! You're so right!! Plus, theres SO MANY single seat supercars! And that canopy is straight up a copy of a jet!! Damn, all Lambo does is steal! So mindless! Glad you're here to point this out!
Lamborghini Egoista is Pure Insanity(May 13, 2013)Ohhhh! Active damping system! Sexy! Ya the rear, 3/4 view, and side profile all rock. That front just needs a bit more work- imagine it with the Revington front end...
Hennessey's 650HP Grand Cherokee(May 11, 2013)Ya- I've never been a fan of performance suvs. Sure this is badass, and I'm sure in terms of utility and performance, it's worth every penny, but I can't get past the fact it's a SUV. I'd rather buy a used Hemi G Cherokee AND a 2014 stingray.
Dubai Cops Add Aston One-77 to Fleet(May 10, 2013)And you're not entire wrong; Dubai almost defaulted due to its weak service-based economy, and most of the loans it has received, have been from neighboring UAE entities- who's economies are based on oil.
Dubai Cops Add Aston One-77 to Fleet(May 10, 2013)@Herbert- actually Dubai has required multiple significant loans, to avoid bankruptcy. They're still in the process of paying them off.
Dubai Cops Add Aston One-77 to Fleet(May 09, 2013)Whatever- I'd totally speed just to get the chance to snap a photo-op with a one-77 (or the Avent). Sure as hell beats being pulled over by a Dodge Magnum (or any other Cruiser this side of the pond)..and hell, I've already had that happen.
Supercars Gather at Brooklands(May 08, 2013)Or lets say I'm wrong... Where's the 4 cyl Lamborghini's? 6 cyl Ferrari's? 4 Cyl Vettes? Oh there aren't any?
Gee, I wonder if its because such models would damage their image...it's not R&D. Fiat = Ferrari, so the parts and lines exist already.
Supercars Gather at Brooklands(May 08, 2013)Wrong- no one would take it seriously. It would be the laughing stock of the industry. A joke. The butt-end of all jokes. We would be using it as an insult "go drive your Kia Ferrari" -it would do more harm than good R&D aside.
Supercars Gather at Brooklands(May 08, 2013)@Matt: If image is irrelevant, have you ever asked yourself why there are no $9,999 Kia's (or any cheap-mid price car) that have the body styling of a Ferrari? Hint: IMAGE.
A car's performance should match its image, or else it's just...silly.
Supercars Gather at Brooklands(May 08, 2013)@Matt: I think this looks like a POS, and wouldn't be caught dead in it. What now? Not a car guy?
You're an idiot. Obviously perception plays a role in ownership; obviously you've never owned a car.
Supercars Gather at Brooklands(May 08, 2013)Too bad 90% of the population would think your ass was broke, and that you were driving your uncle's hand-me down. Not to say its not a cool one, but part of an exotic is also perception. This over an F12? Now that's lulz
Tesla Offers Performance Plus Pack(May 07, 2013)Wow this got out of hand. Look- when you start an article comparing car A (the 12c) to car B (the Fisker), and you talk about how a new upgrade has been released, you probably should include some numbers, to make the whole story relevant.
Chevy Reveals Silverado High Country(May 07, 2013)Yea my brother bought his Turbo Diesel for like 54k- seems so stupid. The dumbass works in an office all day, and doesn't even have anything to tow. Go figure....
Tesla Offers Performance Plus Pack(May 06, 2013)Slander is when one person (or entity) spreads untrue rumors about another person (or entity). There's nothing untrue about what I said, thus it's not slander.
A writer should include that information when they write/report, or else they look bad.
Tesla Offers Performance Plus Pack(May 06, 2013)Carbuzz reports that a new package is available, that increases performance handling, but provides no testing data, other than increased mpg. So- either it hasn't been tested yet (so say that), or it's been tested, but Carbuzz didn't include it...
Porsche 918 Spyder Will Likely Sell Out(May 06, 2013)Well if 0-60 is all ya care about, go get an '06 GSXR 1000...fastest street 0-60, at 2.35 seconds (only the Ariel Atom V8 is faster). Even the Veyron 16.4 SS pales, at 2.5.
Porsche 918 Spyder Will Likely Sell Out(May 05, 2013)Oleg- you made three specific comments about MPG- more than any other one individual, thereby, you technically were the one going on about it, hence m
Porsche 918 Spyder Will Likely Sell Out(May 05, 2013)Oleg, it's called exclusivity. How many 911's have been produced since introduction? How many 918's? Scarcity defines economics; your questions about performance and efficiency- they are irrelevant. This is about scarcity and utility, nothing more.
McLaren Revives the Spirit of Can-Am(May 04, 2013)I'm comparing what they represent: big power versus small power; also since I own both, yes. I can compare them. Is that ok with you?
Is the Corvette Stingray Too Heavy?(May 04, 2013)Considering the more expensive 2013 Viper Track Package (and lightest viper trim) weighs in at 3297, the base Stingray is actually really light (base Viper > 3400). Expect an even lighter Vette soon, ala Track Package, OR ala C5 Fixed-roof version.
Chevy Reveals Stingray Pace Car(May 03, 2013)C'mon people- rear diffusers are almost always black...example:
12C, P1, 458, Murci, LaFerrari, Huayra, Gallardo, Aventador, GT-R....
I get placement and size complaints, but color/material? You all must hate the above cars too.
Porsche Reveals New 911 Turbo(May 03, 2013)Best daily driver ever. And that's not disrespect, that's respect. Thing will toast 90% of what's on the road, but still be plush enough to go cross country as a GT.
VW Golf GTI Concept Coming Soon(May 02, 2013)No one is doubting its performance, Bruce. We just all say there's something left to be desired. Could you imagine if the Gulf had the power and package it has, but the looks of those BRZ/FRS's? Now that would be smart business.
VW Golf GTI Concept Coming Soon(May 02, 2013)As the saying goes....If you put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig. It seems the Golf platform is excellent, but it's actual shape...? So hideous.
Aston Martin Changing Management(May 02, 2013)He better hope Tesla isn't bankrupt by the time he starts. He's either a hero or an idiot; I don't see any other type of person clamoring to get on board a sinking ship.
Brabus Bugatti EB110 SS for Sale(May 02, 2013)@Ryan- that's not even a good diss....Go home, you're drunk.
@Will- haha! Good one!
@Ryan- take note of Will's joke...that's how you do it.
Depreciation Kings: Saab 9-3(May 02, 2013)I always wondered about the build quality of the 2008's (and above). Any body have personal experience, or mechanical knowledge, with the turbo version? I heard the glovebox was cooled like a fridge haha
Depreciation Kings: Mercedes CL55 AMG(May 01, 2013)Erich- don't even try. They bought Chrysler just to strip it, and resell it. At the time Chrysler had one of the biggest on hand cash reserves in all the automotive world. It is common knowledge Daimler abused Chrysler's assets.
'71 Barracuda Rides on Viper Chassis(May 01, 2013)Mmmm I wouldn't be so sure...given the obvious extent of modification this car has had, I see no reason to believe that of all things, the tunnel is what stopped them. I think it's short throw- look at the depth of that tunnel, and on a viper = same
Depreciation Kings: Mercedes CL55 AMG(May 01, 2013)No, John is right. MB purchased Chrysler, and literally stripped Chrysler of all it's on hand cash, and then swapped its bad debt to Chrysler, and sold it off as a mere shadow of what it once was. Chrysler saved MB, at the cost of itself. Look it up.
McLaren Revives the Spirit of Can-Am(Apr 30, 2013)@Steven- I dunno man. I got a Coronet 500 (440 in it), but it holds nothing to my R6. That's the extreme right there- big and old, versus small and new. Modern technology is murdering that decade. Rather the R6 any day!
McLaren Losing Money?(Apr 30, 2013)See I only speak English :(
I hear Toronto is a great place to pick up language. I have a couple friends there- they are all becoming fluent in 5. Jealous.
McLaren Losing Money?(Apr 30, 2013)The only thing I have gleaned from this thread, is that: 1) Hovie is apparently an Armenian-Canadian transport brokerage entrepreneur, whom speaks 6 languages, not including English; 2) Some users like him, some don't. 3) ????? 4) Profit;
McLaren Losing Money?(Apr 29, 2013)And again, since there is absolutely ZERO marginal revenue, and thus ZERO marginal profit, from either the P1 or the P13, and the costs include P1 P13 development, there can ONLY be loss. This article gets MOTO designation: Master Of the Obvious.
McLaren Losing Money?(Apr 29, 2013)No one accused Canadians of being stupid, I referenced his French heritage, thus hoping to explain some of Hovie's english, without insulting him. If you want to insult him- fine. He's Canadian, and can't type English. Maybe he speaks French 1st.
McLaren Losing Money?(Apr 29, 2013)@Matt: there is no need to comment on the story, because its not a story. The McLaren business plan includes 3 different models (12C, p1, p13), yet only the 12C is being sold so far. OBVIOUSLY they will be in the red, till R&D is offset by revenue.
McLaren Losing Money?(Apr 29, 2013)Oh- he's Canadian. Now I get it. English isn't his first language- well played Hovie. Well played.
This Wrecked Pagani Zonda is for Sale(Apr 29, 2013)Doesn't this Zonda use a AMG-MB sourced motor? In that case, wouldn't the tranny be AMG (or fit an AMG/MB?). There's got to be some rich prick dying (pun intended) to shoehorn this Zonda motor into his CLK...
McLaren Losing Money?(Apr 29, 2013)Holy crap- can anyone else understand what Hovie is trying to say? It's like we need Enigma to decipher him...
Audi R8 Driven by a Douchebag(Apr 27, 2013)If this was in the US, they could just turn in the video, and the R8 owner would be cited- perhaps even have his license suspended (wreck less endangerment; criminal mischief. Too bad- what a POS.
2014 Mercedes S-Class Nearly Ready(Apr 24, 2013)Why is that MB cars always look outdated...sometimes even at release. I don't know why, but this really reminds me of a 2002 S class. And that means- this car looks 10+ years old, before its even in production.
McLaren Shifts Focus to P13(Apr 23, 2013)It also looks much bigger versus the Porsche, and perception is even in favor of that 911!
You gotta wonder if they P13 will also be similar to the 911 in dimensions.
Honda Opens NSX Order Books(Apr 19, 2013)I love this car. Man, the last decade has been nice- return of NSX, Chally, redesign on mustang, camaro, badass vipers and vettes- the exotics doin their thing, coach builders....
Syrena Sport Reforms the 350Z(Apr 17, 2013)Enthusiasts questioned the 370??? Who did? Carbuzz writers?? Every feature I have seen praised the 370. They turned the feminine 350 into the masculine 370. Your cited "enthusiasts" must work for Vogue.
McLaren 12C Destroys 458 on the Strip(Apr 15, 2013)Wow you guys are lucky that you get to choose! For me, id take either. It's a hard thing to argue Form over Function (or vice-versa)... Of course, I think the 12C actually looks amazing- don't know what the fuss is...
Ram Considering its own Raptor?(Mar 26, 2013)Could be possible, but trucks arent really efficient (no 60mpg trucks). Given their concerns regarding market/segment research, it means they are concerned that this is too small of a market, meaning size compromises entrance to market (inefficient).
Ram Considering its own Raptor?(Mar 26, 2013)Ummm, if they are talking about efficiency in this article, with regard to 600 HP sport trucks, it doesn't have anything to do with fuel consumption. They want to make sure their investment is efficient, not the mpg..lol
2014 Jeep Cherokee Goes Off-Road(Mar 25, 2013)The 2014 Jeep is blasphemy against history, legend, and respect. The Jeep Cherokee pioneered 4x4- this, pioneers shit. I hope it dies a miserable death, and hemp ra
Track-Spec LaFerrari EVOXX Rendered(Mar 22, 2013)I love this car. Feel sorry for the chumps that don't understand why they chose this name for this specific model. :( get some philosophical education folks.
Veneno Revs in the Geneva Palexpo(Mar 22, 2013)This reminds me of when kids used to make those plastic model cars, and they would glue all the extra "frame/railing" pieces on to the model...you know, the rails that hold the actual pieces together. LMAO
