2013 Shelby GT500 and Camaro ZL1 Duel on the Track(Jun 13, 2012) I'm no engineer, but the ZL1 was purpose built for the track as in road course. I think a more fair comparison would have been vs. a Boss 302. This is just Chevy bashing comparing to a Ford advertised with more HP. Bench racers....
2013 Buick Verano Turbo Arrives with 250hp(Jun 13, 2012)Really? It's got more HP than the brainwashed BMW 3 series, a car it's not intended to compete against. Think that deserves credit. GM is marching towards conforming to CAFE standards and power for mass public appeal.
Kim Kardashian Gives Kanye West a Lamborghini Aventador(Jun 10, 2012) Not that anybody gives a $hit about garbage like this, but unless you have photos of her handing him the keys like Steven Tyler and his Venom, why publish this garbage. TMZ takes random pics on a flatbed and...?
Lexus IS F CCS-R Racecar Heading to Pikes Peak in July(Jun 09, 2012)May seem simple, but I could appreciate the spoiler sitting high enough not to impede rear visibility.
I was on my third IS before I discovered I could unlock and drop the rear headrests so I could actually SEE out the rear window.
Pony Car Icons, Part 6: Pontiac Firebird(Jun 03, 2012)I like that you took the time to acknowledge the Pontiac Trans Am, which gets little love. But why didn't you add photos from the other generations?
Pony Car Icons, Part 6: Pontiac Firebird(Jun 03, 2012)The 1982 Firebird set a then record for the lowest COD (coefficient of drag) in a domestically produced automobile.
Round dish style caps covered the wheels for a unique look.
Mustang Boss 302 Driven by Lottery Winner Crashed(Jun 02, 2012)This sounds communist, but as a lifelong V8 muscle car owner, there should be a competency or driving skill test required for anything north of 450HP. You can't drive a motorcycle without a special license, why not these cars too? Poor car....
Lana Del Rey Gets Under Steven Tyler’s Hennessey Venom GT Spyder(May 29, 2012)I know he's rich and famous and the cars' rare but did anyone plan for an actual license plate bring attached to it? Paper tag tapes to the back window will only last for so long, legally. Just a thought 'cause I don't see an attach point back there.
Fox Marketing’s SEMA Cars Crushed in Pennsylvania(May 29, 2012)Wow...I've got photos of all these cars taken at SEMA. Guess that's all that's left now. So strange because if you do a search for SEMA on eBay, it always turns up one-offs and concepts shown in Vegas. Should have made them production quality legal.
BMW Introduces 2013 7-Series Facelift(May 26, 2012)There's something very Panamera until you get to the rear pillar. I love that the only "free" or "cheap" BMW is white. They have the arrogance to charge for every colour except white.
Shelby’s New Supercharger Kit Adds 300hp to GT500(May 11, 2012)I'm not a Ford person so don't take this as gospel but I also remember hearing and reading strict parameters on 5.0 engine on new Fords: you modify, you forfeit your factory warranty. That said, notice no price?
Ford Aligning 2015 Mustang with Generation Y(Apr 18, 2012)This is NOT a Mustang
Doesn't anybody remember how the Probe from the 1980s was supposed to eventually replace the Mustang?
I don't believe a word of this. Unless Ford is willing to concede the Pony market to Chevy.
Next Generation Lexus IS Caught Testing(Apr 16, 2012) These photos show nothing. It's an IS with some silver painted front & rear bumpers and side skirts.
I understand they're testing the drivetrain but this is much ado about nothing.
Call me when you get shots of the new body, not speculation.
Unearthed: 1994 Dodge Viper RT/10(Mar 25, 2012)Correct. The Shelby GT1 (?) sitting in his museum in Las Vegas was a precursor to the Viper. You can see the similarities right down to the bump in the roof to allow a driver helmet.
Unearthed: 1994 Dodge Viper RT/10(Mar 25, 2012)And GM pushed him out the door. Idiots. He killed garbage and forced the rebirth of GM with hot new models in the late 2000s. Someone needs to green light passion, not just "bean counters" as Lutz was fond of calling them.
