4 Luxurious Lexus Concepts(Aug 05, 2012)Hey, why not? There's no SC anymore. Funny that a competing website is showing off a GS Coupe concept, you know...
Weekly DFA: Ferrari 458 Spider Driver Runs Over NYPD Cop's Foot(Aug 05, 2012)This guy is lucky as hell there are photos and video of this. Yes if he's driving a Ferrari he can afford the ticket. But maybe he's hiding other infractions or it's an Exotic Rental.
Guess what else he can afford? Helluva lawyer who will win this.
Has Japan Finally Found Its Design Niche?(Aug 02, 2012)For better or worse, Lexus is taking a tremendous step forward in design.
Notwithstanding the LFA, the newly redesigned GS, ES and LS are now closely tied together with the front, rear and overall interior/dash design. The GS coupe concept will kill!
Toronto Porsche Dealer Redefines Direct Marketing(Jul 31, 2012)Call the cops! (OK, Constable, it is Canada, eh?) A suspicious character is in our neighborhood.
I did this with my Lexus, though not in front of anyones house.
Rich people have the best landscaping for photo backdrops.
Lexus Unveils New 2013 LS Flagship(Jul 31, 2012)Really like how they incorporated a swooping "L" into the tail lights. Pure Lexus. Let's see Audi, BMW or Benz get away with that!
Wald Plots Upgrades for Toyota GT-86(Jul 29, 2012)Anyone else surprised how small these are in person ? I actually have 2 of the BRZ's where I work in black and in white (what are the odds, I thought they were limiting production?) and the fact they even have back seats is pretty useless.
Unearthed: 1986 Pontiac Fiero GT(Jul 28, 2012)A local owns one with an LT1 V8 engine transversed mounted. Bit of a Frankenstein but hugely popular at car shows. Like the Solstice, poorly executed great idea, but it was cool when it came out. Certainly more popular than Ford's Probe was.
Unearthed: 1986 Pontiac Fiero GT(Jul 28, 2012)Wow, near fail on this editorial. How could you possibly omit the body panels being resistant to dents and dings??? As a precursor to Saturn, the modular body panels were revolutionary at the time, but never caught on in the industry.
Unearthed: 1986 Pontiac Fiero GT(Jul 28, 2012)@Jared Thanks for adding facts. Hate when people make negative generalizations, especially admitting, "...never owned one..."
2013 Lexus LS Shows Up Early(Jul 28, 2012)I rushed out of my 2010 lease into a 2012 IS F Sport in case I don't care for the 2014 IS redesign.
I have been assured by a Lexus insider IS will retain V6 power, RWD, minor changes to body including front and rear fascia. Hence, all look the same.
2013 Lexus LS Shows Up Early(Jul 28, 2012)@Jordan, that's exactly what I meant.
In addition, all new Lexus interiors are going with the BMW style horizontal dash. I have always felt the "waterfall" vertical center stack console design was the most ergonomic in the industry.
Next-Gen Nissan GT-R in Jeopardy(Jul 27, 2012)If Lexus can justify the LFA, why not the GT-R ? I've driven this car on a track at ridiculous speeds and I ended passing Ferraris and Lamborghinis based on the 4 wheel drive and Twin Turbos. I thought moronic bean counters only existed at US manuf.
2013 Lexus LS Shows Up Early(Jul 27, 2012)Not really sure about the homogenous nature of all new Lexus sedans looking identical. Recently released ES and now LS are identical to newly redesigned GS. All now share same flat square rear ends and trunks, identical front grills. Next IS same?
Weekly News Roundup: July 15th - July 21st(Jul 21, 2012)Hey 'Merc, don't EVER criticize American car design after building this monstrosity on 4 wheels. Looks like a space age hearse. What a waste of automotive engineering technology. Will the tasteless consumer who asked for this to be built stand up?
Weekly News Roundup: July 15th - July 21st(Jul 21, 2012)Let's hope that wacko goes through with his plans to build a 'Ring Replica track in the Nevada desert. Seems impossible, considering how many manufacturers use it to prove their vehicles' mettle on the track and chasing records.
Cadillac ATS Takes on the World in New Ad Campaign(Jul 21, 2012)Not so fast. There's no easy way to say this: BMW fanboys border on brainwashed cult status and they associate a Cadillac with grandpa and won't accept an American car as being class leading anything based on a decades long predisposed reputation.
Cadillac ATS Takes on the World in New Ad Campaign(Jul 21, 2012)Come on Cadillac, let's be real.
Your pricing strategy, unfortunately, also follows BMW (Bring Money With).
$33K is for a sewing machine 4 cylinder. Turbo 4 is closer to $40K and top of the line V6 (Camaro engine) is closer to $45K. Just buy a CTS.
New Lexus IS Rendering Points At Evolution(Jul 17, 2012)So where's the spy shot updates?
Seven months and no leaks on the new IS? New ES debuts in a few weeks in showrooms and new LS purportedly intro on July 30th.
And the Most American-Made Car for 2012 is... (Jul 04, 2012)Car belongs to Kelly Fromm, a disabled veteran. It's sick fast, drag races, and is on tour around the U.S. Raffle tickets are being sold and funds raised are for veterans.
Epic B-List Celebrity Car Crashes(Jun 16, 2012)Happened in Tampa, FL. His passenger was left paralyzed and in need of 24 hour care the rest of his life. People don't realize the dangers of speed until its tragic ending.
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.
