GM Design Boss: Lincoln is Not a Cadillac Competitor(Dec 04, 2013)No compacts or SUVs. Classy sedans with LWB options and long coupes ala CL65. The interiors better smell like rich leather, have metal buttons and the doors better make a serious thud when they close.
GM Design Boss: Lincoln is Not a Cadillac Competitor(Dec 04, 2013)I've said it before, Lincoln needs a serious effort at a flagship car to bring on its revival. Not a rebodied FWD. The Lincoln name and brand has too much proud history to let go in this direction.
Nissan Being Sued Over Bladeglider Design(Dec 02, 2013)Nissan provided the drivetrain also. This sounds like dirty politics. They pull out if the delta wing program, take one of their designers and make their own street version.
Ford SVT Chief: Ring Times Are Misleading(Nov 29, 2013)I understand his point but it doesn't hurt anything to go for a hot lap with a hired professional driver. Just sounds like he's afraid of his product being judged.
Top 5 New Production Cars From LA and Tokyo(Nov 28, 2013)I'm a big fan of this car but I see it for what it is: A serious performance machine that's function over form. Designers were inspired by GUNDAM robots lol you think those are pretty?!
SRT Succumbs to 2014 Viper TA Demand, Will Make 159 Units(Nov 26, 2013)It can't be, Patrick. Remember they have parasitic drag ie takes power to make it. Porsche have variable vanes inside their turbos to adjust the volume they push ala sequential. McLaren's V8 has minimal lag...from 3.8.
Only America Could Build the Camaro Z28(Nov 24, 2013)Left. No question. I can think of plenty of cars I'd rather cruise in than a old one but not many new cars I'd rather flog at a track than a new Z/28. I am a disciple if it's doctrine.
Ram 1500 V6 Diesel Gets 28 MPG(Nov 23, 2013)Andy, not disputing but if you need to tow more than 9K on the reg you shouldn't be shopping for a 1500 truck.
Twin-Turbo Subaru Legacy JDM-ed to the Max(Nov 23, 2013)That such a clean car. I'm a fan of the Legacy and this one was cared for extremely well. I will admit I had no idea Subaru had a EJ20 with sequential turbos.
Built WRX Battles Supercharged SVT Cobra(Nov 22, 2013)Man, this whole time I thought AWD provided traction for accelerating and now I know it just makes them slower! The issue with launching an AWD is that they're easy to bog so usually it's better to do a wot clutch dump...until you break stuff.
