Overcompensating Much?(May 23, 2011)What's wrong with liking the vantage point you get over (literally) traffic? Not that I like it, but I can see how some do. Or you like a performance car merely because it's fun to drive? That's why I drive what I do.
Overcompensating Much?(May 23, 2011)That's the worst year for the car in terms of design. The original was much better, but a pic of that one would not apply in this article. Still....
A New Camaro-Based GTO(May 10, 2011)As good as it looks, the GTO shouldn't be based on the Camaro. I know that's their only option, so I guess I'm saying I honestly don't approve. I think GM should've just kept Pontiac and dropped GMC, they're so limited as to what they can create.
Video: De Tomaso Pantera Spied(May 08, 2011)Well I know they won't use those old-fashioned flip-up headlamps, but they should. And they should put the Boss 302 engine in the bay; Perfect for a lightweight supercar. They also shoulda stuck closely to the profile of the original. Timeless.
Next Charger TBi Will Be Powered by an Alfa Engine(Apr 07, 2011)Wasn't necessary to do that, Dodge. Just let the Pentastar V6 be the volume powerplant, nothing wrong with that sweet mill. Also, never thought Chrysler would be the first domestic to embrace turbos in it's muscle cars.
First Look: 2012 Acura TL(Apr 06, 2011)I always thought it was so that you can't fix anything under there without a special tool to remove it, which only the dealerships carry. This way you have to pay them to fix your car, and not your local mechanic.
Playboy Dream Garage(Apr 06, 2011)Much better than the current two seat roadster. I shouldve been born soo long ago.
Chrysler Teases "S" Concepts at LX Spring Festival(Apr 03, 2011)Am I the only one who heard ads about the "S" line on the radio? Been hearing about these cars for months now. Honestly thought the marketing guys made a huge mistake, putting an s in place of a c.
Renault Looking To Build The DeZir(Apr 02, 2011)Ummm, anybody remember the i8 thats coming soon? Looks exactly like that EfficientDynamics concept by BMW. Won't be cheap, but there's a concept that will make it to the showroom floor.
Breaking: Tesla Sues BBCs Top Gear(Mar 31, 2011)If Tesla actually had made an EV, it would ten times more impressive than this thing. I should sue this company for giving a great man's name a poor reputation.
BMW M3 Ute(Mar 24, 2011)The only place they could think of selling this is in Oz, but they shouldn't even be doing that. BMW and ute should never be in the same phrase.
Breaking: Mercedes-Benz Reveals 2012 C63 AMG Coupe(Mar 20, 2011)@ Daniel: they are in different size classes I believe. The CTS competes more directly to the E-Class, 5 Series, and the A5/6. The upcoming ATS is aimed squarely at this, the 3 Series, and the A4/5.
First Saab 9-4X Rolls On Out(Feb 24, 2011)Actually it is Cadillac's SRX, not Escalade though it would be interesting if Saab used that too for a full-size SUV.
Rebranded Luxury(Feb 20, 2011)It's ridiculous. Automakers put so much in at their cheapest cars that the real luxury cars have gone into the stratosphere in terms of gadgets and price. Am I the only one thinking this way? Oh and no radios too.
Rebranded Luxury(Feb 20, 2011)The reason this article came up at all is because for some reason, it's no longer okay to have roll up windows, manual locks, no A/C, or manual transmissions in base models of any car save a few. It's why the bottom line on base models keeps going up
Video: Chryslers $1 Billion Investment(Feb 19, 2011)Really Emily? You're going to base a companies' status on a single car? How narrow minded. The JGC is another testament to chryslers return, among a few others. This can't happen overnight mind you. Just like Toyotas rep, this rep will take some time
Video: Chryslers $1 Billion Investment(Feb 18, 2011)@ Mike H: so I guess giving even more money away to bankers who deserve it even less is a better idea. That's what your obama did. And these banks probably won't ever pay us back.
Upcoming: 2012 Kia Rio(Feb 15, 2011)I think it would look better if the grille came down more to replace that body colored part. Other than that, it's fine.
Nissan GT-R Egoist(Feb 13, 2011)I understand all that, guys. For a car that can be custom ordered though, I would think a full manual should be possible. Besides, every car is much more fun that way. If my car can be in the five second range AND a manual I'm happy.
Nissan GT-R Egoist(Feb 12, 2011)Thats the problem. You should be able to order with a six speed.
Nissan GT-R Egoist(Feb 12, 2011)Wait, this ones an automatic. You and your ego need to learn how a clutch pedal works.
Chicago 2011: 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1(Feb 12, 2011)I wish they understated the looks of this car. The original had the sleeper look down pat. Didn't know what it had till it smoked your ass, or you read on the hood.
Chicago 2011: 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1(Feb 12, 2011)"Staying true to its ancestor, the ZL1 is fitted with....Magnetic Ride Control...." WTF. The '69 ZL1 had magnetic shocks too?? We have gone nowhere in technology. This blows my mind.
Chicago 2011: Turbocharged Jetta GLI(Feb 10, 2011)I agree with Ethan. The MK IV GLI was way better. Beside the looks of this one, the powerplant is lacking now. They first introduced this engine back in '06, and still makes just 200 hp. Modify it a bit VW. The MS3 has you beat by a whole 63 hp.
First Look: 2011 Dodge Charger(Feb 05, 2011)Alright Chris & Pat, both of you are incredibly ignorant. A simple search on google will reveal to you that the new HEMI is just marketing ploy like this car it inhabits. Do some research yourself, Chris, before telling someone else to.
First Look: 2011 Dodge Charger(Feb 04, 2011)Sorry Pat. The HEMI stood for hemispherical combustion chambers, which this new "HEMI" lacks. Not a true HEMI, but it's no different than the new C63 AMG that uses a 6.2 liter engine in my eyes.
1956 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham Town Car(Feb 03, 2011)I might be completely off the mark, but perhaps you are talking about the 1954 Cabriolet Speciale. It was a one-off concept featured in GM's Motorama back then. If not that, then definitely the 1959 Eldorado Brougham which had a limited production.
Audi R18 Runs Around Sebring(Feb 03, 2011)Thanks for answering my question guys, but I should've asked this one instead: how will this car behave in a cross-breeze with such a profile?
1956 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham Town Car(Feb 03, 2011)I love how the exhaust is actually integrated into the rear bumper design. I just saw that again on the new top-line Mazda 6 and Buick LaCrosse. A sign that car design is truly back on the rise for some companies.
Audi R18 Runs Around Sebring(Feb 02, 2011)I still don't understand how that upright piece of bodywork....works. Can anyone elaborate for me??
No Particular Place To Go(Jan 09, 2011)I agree whole-heartedly. I had a '67 Mustang with a small 6-cyl engine and a 3-speed auto for a year or so until some kid ran into me without a license or insurance. That was my first love. Yes, it was my first car and yes I'm 18 years old.
Blast from the Past: 1970 Holden Torana GTR-X Concept(Jan 04, 2011)Yes but if you merely search for a 1970 Trans-Am in Google images you will find the exact same dash and steering wheel. Even the shifter boot is the same. Holden obviously went through Pontiac's parts bin.
