    The Truth About Cars

    The more some things stay the same, the more other things change. Or so the saying doesn’t go. Mazda’s U.S. market share hasn’t been much more than level since a pre-recession surge, if you can call it that, to 1.99% in 2008. A brand known as something of the poor man’s BMW should be selling a large volume of cars in America, but BMW, with its expansive model range, sells nearly as many vehicles. Subaru, on the other hand, has risen from niche status to a mainstream status in the span of a few short years. The WRX/STi and BRZ do contribute – 7.1% of the…

    Filed under: Hirings/Firings/Layoffs, Work Farm and heavy equipment manufacturer Deere - of John Deere tractor fame - has announced that it will indefinitely layoff some 460 workers at its Waterloo, IA facility, effective as of October 20. This latest round of layoffs comes just about a week after Deere revealed it would be doing the same at facilities in Ankeny, IA, Moline and East Moline, IL and Coffeyville, KA. All this, following and August 13 earnings announcement that showed sales falling by some 15 percent in the third quarter of this year. In a statement, the company said that it…

    By Rick Popely Gas prices have dropped to their lowest level in six months, falling 3 cents the past week to a national average of $3.44 for a gallon of regular unleaded, the lowest price for the month of August since 2010, the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report said Thursday. The national average for regular unleaded gas is 9 cents lower than a year ago, AAA said, and the $3.81 average for diesel fuel is 7 cents lower than a year ago. Motorists in all but a handful of states are paying less at the pump today than in August 2013. Among states where prices are substantially higher are Colorado, where…

  • Report: A new Lincoln Navigator due in two years

    admin
    22 Aug 2014 | 12:01 pm
    The Lincoln Navigator is apparently due for a completely replacement, despite the fact that it was redesigned and heavily refreshed for the 2015 model year. Click here for more news on the Lincoln Navigator. In a recent report from AutomotiveNews, the biggest change is the adaptation of a body made entirely of aluminum, following in the footsteps of the latest 2015 Ford F150. The new aluminum Navigator rides on a similar integrated body-on-frame chassis, allowing for an easier integration of a newer body. That said, the new Navi is also currently in the middle of being developed for the 2016…

    Ford is in the rumor mill by way of Reuters, who recently learned that the Dearborn-based automaker is seeking to build a dedicated hybrid model to compete directly with the Toyota Prius. Reuters apparently spoke to “company insiders,” who leaked information by saying it would be introduced in late 2018 and the new model will solely be offered as a hybrid. It’s been also codenamed the C240 as the new model is to be built on the brand’s latest C2 platform, the new architecture destined for the next-generation Ford Focus and Ford Escape. Not much else is known, though…
  • Report: Some details on the 2016 Chevrolet Volt surface

    21 Aug 2014 | 6:43 pm
    AutoBlog recently conducted a rundown of what’s currently known for the next-generation 2016 Chevrolet Volt. The new model is due at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show early next year and is promised to be more fuel and electrically efficient, according to GM’s executive vice president, Mark Reuss. The current Volt is rated at the equivalent of 98 MPGe and 37 mpg on premium gasoline with a 38-mile electric-only range. Though, no word exists as to how much better the new ’16 Volt will fair, but hints of better aerodynamics, less weight, and less friction within the powertrain…

    Tesla’s new Model X crossover is making a big impression–so big in fact, that Morgan Stanley predicts the new Model X could do some serious damage to the competition in the premium SUV market segment. Check out more news on the Tesla Model X. According to The Los Angeles Times, the new Model X is even expected to sell better than the highly-acclaimed Model S, thanks to the hike in demand for crossover SUVs.

  • Report: Acura RLX Sport Hybrid delayed for technical issue

    20 Aug 2014 | 7:26 am
    Acura was on schedule to launch its anticipated RLX Sport Hybrid but after a technical issue, Acura’s senior vice president, Mike Accavitti, confirmed the model is delayed. After speaking with Wards Auto, specifics weren’t disclosed by Accavitti, though he said that “it just hasn’t met with our expectations yet.” Speculation suggests there is a problem with the SH-AWD and the powertrain, especially since its a similar system to the one used in the Acura NSX Prototype, which recently caught fire. Due to the delay, the RLX Sport Hybrid is delayed until next…

    People write buyers’ guides for fancy newfangled machinery all the time, but what if you’re looking for a hooptie to go racin’ with? Lower your expectations and enter the world of triple-digit-price-tag motoring. Most grassroots racers don’t have purpose-built factory racecars or pristine concours-style restorations. They’ve picked up a cheap car that they don’t mind ripping the interior bits out of so they can go play. To be honest, if a car is too nice, I’d feel bad about turning it into a racecar or running it to the limits of its mechanical…
  • 2015 Corvette Z06: Price Is Low, Weight Is Up, Stakes Is High

    Jack Baruth
    23 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    We now know what the Corvette Z06 is going to cost, and what it’s going to weigh, and both numbers are surprising. First number: $78,995. That gets you the Z06. If you want the track-focused stuff, you want a Z07. That’s carbon ceramic brakes, higher downforce bodykit, and MPSCs. Think of it as the Z28 for the Z06. There’s also an aero package that is more aggressive than the base Z06 but less so than the Z07. Second number: 3,524 pounds. This is over two hundred pounds heavier than the Z51, and apparently it’s all go-faster stuff like wider tires and the supercharger…

    22 Aug 2014 | 8:02 am
    The late model Panther cars offer a unique combination of fairly modern driving characteristics and the classic feel of RWD, body-on-frame vehicle. With their longevity and durability, cheap parts and surprisingly frugal 4.6 Modular engine, they are even quite cheap to run. Of course, that’s all true if you believe the hagiography of the Panther so earnestly propagated by this site, and other outlets. But does it have any grounding in reality? Last fall, I had the fortune of getting my hands on nearly exactly the car I’ve wanted to try. Even better was that I didn’t just…

    story: Henry Wurtz | photos: Henry Wurtz and Ernesto Che Being the first Monterey Car Week I have ever attended, I was not quite sure what I was in for. For weeks I had been psyching myself up mentally for an automotive overload, and as I arrived into the Carmel Valley early on Wednesday morning my mind was quickly blown: an Aston Martin DB4 whizzed passed, followed minutes later by a DB9 Spyder Zagato. Little did I know my mind being blown was to be a reoccurring effect in the evening to come.  When event tickets cost close to $400 a pop, it isn’t likely that attendees will be showing…

    24 Jul 2014 | 8:06 am
    Words and Photos: Michael Juergens from Quattroworld Many people dream of the open road, but they are stuck forever in traffic. I didn’t have the freedom of empty Nevada highways. My daily commute restricts me to Boston traffic. This slow, deliberate time allowed me to get a feeling for the car in an everyday setting. Sitting in traffic with the RS 7 certainly allowed for some time to reflect. The seats are comfortable, and they provide just the right amount of support whether I was sitting in traffic or driving spiritedly. Pulling the gear selector back and moving into drive (instead of…

  • The DB Is Dead! Long Live DB! Aston Martin Trademarks DB10 through DB14 for Future Models

    Steve Siler
    22 Aug 2014 | 3:24 pm
    Aston Martin products are in for some big changes in coming years, but their DB-based naming strategy will carry forward. According to Autocar, Aston has applied for trademarks for the names DB10 through DB14, likely for the successor to the DB9. Aston may decide, however, to buck tradition and reuse the name when the next-gen coupe and convertible appear approximately in mid-2016. The “DB” naming convention was first applied to Aston Martins during the years that the brand was stewarded by Sir David Brown, who rescued the automaker from dire straits during the postwar era and maintained…
  • Kurt Busch Unabridged: On Running a Double, His Separation from Penske, and More

    Kurt Busch has long fascinated NASCAR fans because A) it’s commonly agreed that he’s a superlative driver with 25 wins and a NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship to his credit, and he continues to race in the Pro Stock division of the NHRA on an “opportunity permitting” basis; and B) he has played Peck’s Bad Boy in the Politically Correct world of NASCAR, where sponsor needs increasingly hold sway. Busch has been suspended and fined by NASCAR multiple times, and most observers of the sport believe he was fired from Penske Racing in December 2011 after blowing up at a TV cameraman,…

  • Hellsnake? Supercharged V-10 Viper Rumors Swirling in Detroit

    When Dodge placed the 707-hp Hellcat V-8 in the Challenger SRT and the Charger SRT, it threw a little cold water on its Viper supercar. As a model whose sales were already disappointing, the last thing the Viper needed was to have the authority of its mighty 640-hp V-10 contested by supercharged eight-cylinder upstarts from its own family. But a report from the Mopar fanatics at Allpar suggests that the Viper may have a plan to regain its title as the brawniest production Chrysler product.

    Dynamic performance and efficiency: The new Audi TT impressively combines both qualities. Compared with the predecessor model, the compact sports car scores high with an increase in power output of up to 14 percent and a simultaneous decrease in greenhouse gas emissions of 11 percent. As the premium vehicle manufacturer states in its new life cycle assessment of the third-generation TT, this means that each car in the series saves around 5.5 tonnes of greenhouse gases over its entire life cycle. This includes not just carbon dioxide, but other substances such as methane, nitrous oxide and…

    Back in the late 1990’s, auto manufacturers were scrambling to add more variations of the SUV theme “song” to their line-up. Gas prices were low and North Americans were in love with their sport utes. Dodge made quite an entry to the SUV marketplace with the Durango in 1998. Based on their new (at the time) Dakota pickup truck, the Durango offered up to seven passenger seating, the most cargo space in its class, and thanks to the body-on-frame construction, 3.5 tons of towing capacity. Buyers were so smitten by the trucky first generation Durango that they even ignored the tail lamps…

    Volvo has set an ambitious goal: building vehicles in which “no one should be killed or seriously injured” by the year 2020. While the automaker, like others, can perform a variety of crash tests and trials in labs and other facilities, real-world scenarios are more difficult to replicate. So the next best thing is to build that world. The automaker is getting help on this from its Swedish neighbor AstaZero, which has just opened what Volvo calls “the world’s first full-scale proving ground for future traffic safety solutions.” Along with help from universities and suppliers, as…

  • A Second Life for EV Batteries?

    Doug Newcomb
    18 Aug 2014 | 6:16 pm
    Driving an electric vehicle is considered good for the environment since it doesn’t use gas and causes zero tailpipe emissions. But one question that EV naysayers ask – and nags at the owners of these green vehicles – is what happens to the battery pack when the car comes to the end of its life. While the number of lithium-ion battery packs used by EVs is dwarfed by the prevalence of traditional (and highly toxic) lead-acid 12-volt car batteries, a recent report predicts that there will be between 1.3 million and 6.7 million used EV batteries in 20 years. Lead-acid batteries…

    The early 1970s were a glorious time for muscle cars. Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Plymouth, even the forgotten AMC all jumped into the game. But few muscle cars were as sinister as the Challenger, as even cops with speech impediments knew.Read more...

    Humans have landed on the moon six times, but conspiracy theorists still insist the actual number is zero. They cite bad science, misunderstandings of physics, and outright lies to try to convince you that American astronauts never set foot on our moon. Here's one more way to prove those wackos wrong.

  • Should you seal your driveway?

    Jil McIntosh
    15 Aug 2014 | 9:53 am
    Driveway sealing has a bit of a bum rap with many homeowners, primarily because there are a lot of semi-shady characters knocking on doors with an offer to do the job "because we have some left over from the job down the street." There are benefits, and you can do it yourself, but if you're paying someone, use the same smarts that you would for any home repair job. Find out more in my Driving Force column over at Metro.

    Volkswagen, which is the market volume leader in the United States for diesel-powered cars, is filling in the last piece in its portfolio, an electric vehicle, with the 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf.  Yes, there had been a dozen or so prototypes driving around the United States in the past but those were part of a closed pilot program. Volkswagen waited until it was ready to launch the seventh generation Golf before bringing the e-Golf onto the market in order to avoid putting the all-electric powertrain into the outgoing version of the Golf.  Volkswagen points out it has sold 30 million Golfs…

    INGOLSTADT – In 1989, at the Frankfurt Internationale Automobil Ausstellung in Frankfurt, Audi unveiled the brand’s first diesel-powered passenger car. The Audi 100 was equipped with a 2.5-liter inline-five cylinder turbodiesel engine – a TDI in Audi/VW parlance –  with direct fuel injection and a fully electronic engine management. TDI stands for Turbo Diesel Injection and the 100 was the first within the Volkswagen family to use the TDI label. The Audi 100 produced 120 horsepower with a maximum torque of 265 pound-feet.  The 100’s engine is still being produced, albeit for a…

    Over the past several years, mobile web use has nearly tripled, and now delivers more than 30% of web traffic. And though mobile users were assumed to skim headlines instead of actually reading articles, recent studies have shown that more and more users are regularly reading in-depth articles and news on their mobile devices. Further, by 2016, it is expected that 19 percent of all retail purchases will be conducted via mobile devices. Such a clear increase in mobile traffic and engagement indicates the critical role that appropriate website design plays in customer interaction. The two…

On a recent hot summer night outside Detroit, a 62-year-old woman sat in a chair watching the Telegraph Cruise, a classic-car parade on Telegraph Avenue in Taylor, Mich., when a stranger approached and began asking questions. What kind of car did she drive? Why had she chosen that automobile? What did this choice say about her identity? The stranger, it turned out, was Chris Lezotte, a Ph.D candidate at Bowling Green State University, in Ohio, who was doing ethnographic research for her dissertation on the relationship women…

  • Do You Have An Accurate View Of Profit Potential?

    Mike Williams
    22 Aug 2014 | 7:07 am
    Do you have accurate visibility into the profit picture on each vehicle? After all, profit isn’t merely based on what you sold the car for minus what you paid to acquire the inventory. There are several other categories along the way that can erode profit potential. The prevalence of online auction options can muddy the waters even further. Sure, online auctions give access to a larger virtual pool of inventory, but the procurement process can add to your costs. But dealers have new weapons at their disposal to not only protect profits, but also maximize opportunity on every vehicle.

Adding to the sharp appearance are two black racing stripes on the hood and the tailgate. It doesn't only add flashy components, though.

When he decided to purchase a Porsche in 2013, Larry wanted year-round drivability, so he went with a 1991 964 C4. And he drove it… a lot. But, as good as the 964 was, Larry soon began dreaming of creating a true track car he could still drive through the harsh Northeast winters. First off, more…

There were certainly a few bargains had by savvy buyers, and some of the weekend's biggest Porsche lots were either "No Sales", or "No Shows". There were only a couple of lots that exceeded their pre-auction estimates, and the vast majority were either on the low end of their estimate spectrum, or below. A whopping 27 Porsches left their respective auction stages without selling, accounting for more than a…

    There's no doubt that any Porsche 911 is a formidable track weapon. However, in the skilled hands of a professional driver like Patrick long, a vintage 1967 Porsche 911 S can be dangerously fast. Dangerous even to faster, more powerful cars. The video below, all 15 glorious minutes of it, was shot last week at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca during the 2014 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. From the viewpoint of Patrick's visor cam you can watch and listen as he uses all 8100 rmps of the 911's flat-six to chase down, faster more powerful opponents.

    Retractable hardtops are amazing to watch in action: A symphony of moving parts disguised to look like they were never designed to move in the first place. During the post-war Jet Age optimism of the late 1950s you wonder if Ford designers believed that retractable hardtops would revolutionize the industry and find their way onto half of the automobiles on the road. It would be awesome if retracting tops had become as ubiquitous as power seats and power windows, but almost 60 years after the Ford Skyline’s breathtaking introduction, retractables are still sort of a novelty act and seem to…

First, above, what seems to be a typical photo of Myer Frank Furniture, dated October 1963. The painted sign on the side of the building appears rather new (and you can still see the ghost image of it in the modern-day Street View), but why are all the cars parked facing against traffic? Market doesn’t appear to have been a one-way street then, as we can see from the below 1962 photo showing cars…

  • Check Out this Quattroporte… Fiat 500 Quattroporte Rendering

    22 Aug 2014 | 5:19 pm
    Since we now have a five-door variant of the all-new MINI, it’s justifiable to consider a similar variant based on its quasi-rival, the Fiat 500. The little Fiat would definitely benefit from the addition of two extra doors plus wheelbase, and, for the first time since it was created, actually be any good at carrying more than two people and some shopping.Yes, sure, Fiat already has the 500L, but that’s an MPV and thus could never really be as cool as the actual 500 that people have grown to know, but in slightly elongated form.This rendered interpretation by AutoProjecoes, while slightly…

  • 2015 Audi A3 Review

    NMA
    22 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist Mercedes started it with the sub-$30k (just barely) CLA sedan — putting the three-pointed star within reach of an entirely new demographic. Now Audi’s joined the fray with the 2015 A3. Like the Benz CLA, the A3 is base-priced under $30k (again, just barely) and so within the same orbit, price-wise, of an optioned-out Honda Accord or Toyota Camry. But it’s a big step up from such cars in terms of prestige and driving panache. It’s also a step up from the Benz in terms of size. Well, room. Though a compact on the outside — and…

  • The Open Road: Keeping Interstates Toll-Free Protects the Economy and Preserves Americans’ Freedom

    NMA
    19 Aug 2014 | 7:31 am
    By Julian Walker, Guest Columnist  Americans love the open road — it symbolizes the freedoms our country provides and a sense of exploration that has helped build our nation. The vast interstate network of asphalt and pavement for decades has facilitated people’s travel to places near and far for commerce or recreation. Now, that free system is under attack by some policymakers who want to roll back longstanding restrictions on tolling interstates. Doing that, as Massachusetts Transportation Department chief Richard A. Davey suggested in a July 25 Roll Call guest opinion column, would…

    Filed under: Spy Photos, Hatchback, BMW Hey, remember the BMW 1 Series? Yes, German brand's successors to the US-market coupe and convertible have one-upped the old car to wear the 2 Series designation now, but in other markets, our No. 1 crush still lives on, and as evidenced in these spy shots, the entry-level hatch appears to be undergoing a modest facelift. We've spotted prototypes of the refreshed 1 Series before, with the majority of the car's changes focused around the front fascia. This time around, we're seeing the three-door variant, with wheels seemingly fitting of a Sport or even…

In the '60s there was the rear-engine, air-cooled Chevrolet Corvair, then the mid-engine Pontiac Fiero in the '80s and the completely bizarre Chevy SSR in the 2000s. What all of these had in common was that they bucked the trend for American models of their era, for better or worse.

It is early days, but the film is opening to mixed reviews, from gamers to film goers alike. There is a likely hood that the film will not be a huge success, with movie review sites such as The Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic giving the movie 23% and 37% retrospectively, although interestingly enough IMDB has given the movie a much more decent score of 7.5/10.

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The practice of modifying a cheap automobile to make it resemble a more expensive one is virtually as old as the automobile itself. From the Cadillac-aping El Morocco of the 1950s to the scores of kits on the market today that you can buy to turn your tired Fiero, MR2 or similar into a facsimile of a late-model Lamborghini or Ferrari, history is full of cars being dressed in fancier duds.

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life It’s pretty much a given that classic cars are easy to spot from the outside. But it’s just as easy to know that you’re aboard a vintage ride from the inside, too. Things like chrome-clad buttons and switches, squared-off dashboards and a rudimentary radio (assuming there even is one) are dead giveaways of a vehicle’s advanced age. And the same can be said of classic car gauges, instruments whose makers paid as much attention to looks as they did functionality. High-end motoring accessories maker Autodromo has taken a very similar approach to its…

These days, the second-generation Infiniti FX (which now answers to name QX70 or internal chassis code S51) is a fine vehicle, but it seems to get a bit lost in the sporty luxury crossover crowd these days.

It’s a category that I’ve always loved watching, right back from when I was a kid. Living close to UK’s legendary Brands Hatch track in Kent, I was spoiled growing up, spending many happy weekends following my dad around the paddock and marvelling at the outrageous machinery we came across. Screaming F1 cars, thundering prototypes, wheelie-popping GP bikes – but it was…

    When 3 Rotors & 1 Turbo Aren't Enough: RADBUL Gets 26B-TT PowerQuad Power In The House Imagine, if you will, your ultimate no holds barred race car.

  • 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

    Andrew Mrozinski
    14 Aug 2014 | 6:53 am
    Nearly a month ago, Dodge announced the 707 horsepower 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Today, the Chrysler brand introduces a similarly equipped Charger and lays claim to the fastest four-door ever. It’s called the 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat. Surprised? If you’re a Dodge fan, probably not. A sedan packing this much power sounds like a recipe for not only multiple run-ins with the law but wide-eyed children will be screaming, “Stop Daddy, you’re scaring me!” But after good ole Dad lays a few patches, those same kiddies will be reduced to giggling hysteria and squealing, “More,…

    There is no doubt about it, fans of motor sport are often spoiled for choice when it comes to selecting their preferred classification. From Formula One racing to rally driving, there are a fascinating range of disciplines that feature various vehicles without ever compromising on adrenalin pumping excitement. The sheer level of this diversity can cause some racing classifications to become easily overlooked, however, as they lack the exposure or financial backing or more popular alternatives. Take drifting, for example, which relies on a driving technique where a motorist intentionally…

    There’s a 30 percent chance that the used car you’re driving has never had a defect repaired. Automakers issue recalls on cars almost as often as they produce new models, so odds are good that your car has been recalled at some point. Thirty percent of recalled cars are never repaired, which isn’t a big deal if the recall is minor and involves something like a floor mat or trunk hinge. The missed repair could be devastating if the recall is for something more serious, like the recent GM ignition switch debacle. Used car shoppers, until now, had to conduct difficult research…

    From GMM Bernie Ecclestone insists formula one is definitely going to controversial Russia -- but he is much less sure about a race in New York.

This week we’re testing the top-of-the-line A3 with Quattro all-wheel drive powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 cylinder engine ($32,900).  What’s new for 2015?

  • The Four Strangest Collaborations from the World of Motoring

    Chris Burdick
    6 Aug 2014 | 10:45 am
    Collaborations are a tricky subject - often they are brilliant, but a lot of the time they are rather questionable, and can leave a bit of a sour taste. Most industries have, at some point or another, participated in some form of collaboration; whether it be with another business in the same industry, or with a person or company that is completely unrelated. Rather unsurprisingly, this interest in collaboration for better or for worse, is as strong as ever within the motoring industry. In fact, it would almost be fair to say that car manufacturers are among some of the most prolific…

    22 Aug 2014 | 11:00 pm
    There is a new Batman game coming, and with it we get a brand-new Batmobile. Our favorite caped crusader has a strong history of cool cars, but aside from a few quick appearances, the Batmobile has not really been a part of the recent Arkham game series from Rocksteady games.That all changes with the new Arkham Knight game, and Rocksteady is going all in on Batmobile goodness. Not only can you drive it around the streets of Gotham as you please, but it also has the ability to transform into a tank.Yes, it is a Batmobile that changes into a freaking tank. I can’t scream "take my money"…
  • Caterham Seven 480

    22 Aug 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Caterham is just one of many car manufactures that have built replicas or continuation cars based on the iconic Lotus Seven. That said, Caterham is the only one that has become notorious for its Seven continuation cars and its numerous iterations. Ranging from the lightest and cheapest Caterham Seven 160 to the powerful and expensive Seven 620 R, the Caterham line of Sevens is nothing short of impressive. Caterham cars remain rather scarce in the States, but for 2015, the automaker is growing its lineup in America with the addition of the Seven 480.We live in the golden age for performance…

It is also a special experience to see something so cool and rare in the car world go rolling down the street.

The FK453s were sold as “fixing every problem of the FK452s and then some” and I was told I’d be quite pleased with these tires – boy, were they wrong…after 1.5 years and around 15,000 miles,…

  • Fiat Australia explains its decision to steadily up 500 base price

    Mike Costello
    22 Aug 2014 | 8:23 pm
    Fiat Australia claims it has been steadily increasing the price of the base 500 Pop over the past 12 months because its previous bargain-basement (and heavily subsidised) $14k entry price was making the rest of the 500 range too expensive by comparison.  The Italian company in essence ‘re-launched’ here in June 2013 after having consolidated its official, rather than outsourced, distributorship. In an attempt to bolster its flagging brand recognition, it went in hard with the eyebrow-raising $14k driveaway pricing.  As a result, sales of the 500 shot up (as did Fiat’s sister Alfa…
  • California rules that Google self-driving car must have steering wheel, brakes

    Derek Fung
    22 Aug 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Google’s plans to begin public road testing of self-driving cars that do without a steering wheel and brake pedal have been killed off by new rules in California. In May this year Google made global headlines when it demonstrated a prototype self-driving vehicle (above) that had neither steering wheel nor brake pedal. Up until now, the search giant has been testing steering wheel and brake pedal-free autonomous vehicles on closed courses. It had hoped to test such vehicles on public roads, but that plan has effectively been nixed by California’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
  • Saleen Foursixteen takes the Tesla Model S beyond 300kW

    Derek Fung
    22 Aug 2014 | 10:28 am
    Saleen, a company with a heritage of tuning American muscle cars, has decided to try its hand with another American-made performance vehicle by turning the Tesla Model S into the Saleen Foursixteen. The Saleen Foursixteen is based on the fastest factory Tesla Model S, the P85. Under the hood there’s a three-phase, four-pole AC motor turning out 310kW of power and 601Nm of torque. That’s up significantly on the 270kW/440Nm motor found in the P85 Model S. 21-inch alloy wheels are shod with 245/35 rubber up front and 295/30 tyres at the rear. Saleen has also revised the suspension…
  • Ferrari 458 Speciale Review

    Jez Spinks
    22 Aug 2014 | 12:17 am
    V8 supercars have a different meaning in Europe, especially in Italy where the Ferrari 458 Speciale is the latest product from the Maranello-based brand that can’t help making its eight-cylinder sports cars go faster and faster. The Speciale is to the 458 Italia what the Challenge Stradale was to the 360, and more recently the Scuderia was to the F430: a quicker, meaner berlinetta designed for St Devote rather than St Tropez. A common industry approach to extracting more performance from an existing model is to give the engine more power and stiffen the suspension. Such changes are far too…

    Volvo says the opening of the AstaZero advanced proving ground in Sweden brings it a step closer to realising its dream that no one will be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo by 2020. AstaZero, which stands for ‘Active Safety Test Area’ and represents the vision of zero traffic fatalities, claims to be the world’s first full-scale proving ground for testing future traffic safety solutions.

    And so we reach the end of August, the time when PetrolBlog prepares for its annual summer shutdown and embarks on a few days of team building and general nonsense.

    Hi, my name is Andrew and I have a problem, I am seemingly incapable of sticking to a list of 10 cars for my Real World Dream Shed for longer than a few minutes. I threatened to compile my own Real World Dream Shed last year, preparing a list almost immediately. Then it changed. Then it changed again. Then I gave up and went to the shops. I then forgot about it for a few months. Having taken the notebook out of the top drawer, I fiddled with the list again. Some cars went, other cars came in. But it was forever in a state of flux. This was much, much harder than I thought. But, at this…
  • Driving Honda: a book review

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    20 Aug 2014 | 6:07 am
    We had such high hopes for Honda at the turn of the millennium. Pick up a copy of Autocar, poignantly dated 1 January 2000, and check out the new car price guide. It reads like a Honda-sponsored dream garage. Honda Civic VTi, Jordan VTi, Accord Type-R, Legend, Integra Type-R, Prelude, S2000 and NSX. It’s little wonder Honda is PetrolBlog’s favourite Japanese carmaker. Let’s not forget the MK1 Honda Insight was a mere three months away and it wouldn’t be long before the Civic Type-R would arrive in a scream of VTEC. Good times. Turn to the Honda website today and…
  • Rare Italian fails to meet pre-auction estimate at Pebble Mill

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    15 Aug 2014 | 9:32 pm
    There was shock and dismay at this week’s prestigious Pebble Mill Concorde d’Extraordinary auction as a rare two-seat Italian failed to live up to its pre-auction hype. In the days leading up to the auction, which is part of Birmingham’s Monterey Car Jackers Week, many analysts were suggesting the Fiat Punto Van – finished in exclusive Darlington Drizzle grey – could sell for between £3,500 and £4,500. But there were groans of disappointment from the expectant Pebble Mill crowd as the Punto fetched just £2,300. It’s still a world record price for a Fiat Punto Van*, but…
  • Going green: MK1 Honda Insight review

    Antony Ingram
    15 Aug 2014 | 12:53 am
    It all started, as many things do these days, with a Tweet. This one in fact. I’ve been known to express desire for used cars posted on Twitter before, but ordinarily common sense gets the better of me, or laziness sets in and I decide that travelling hundreds of miles down the country is too much work even for a particularly lovely Renault 11. Unfortunately, the MK1 Honda Insight posted by this very website wasn’t hundreds of miles away. It was about thirteen miles away, which is far from an unlucky number when it refers to the minuscule distance between yourself and a car you…

  • Suzuki doubtful with Kizashi’s future, says next-generation improbable

    Suzuki has been facing trouble with Kizashi’s sales figures since long time and now the company seems highly doubtful if there’s a future left to this mid-size sedan. Suzuki had high hopes with the Kizashi when it was unveiled back in 2009, especially from the US and Canada markets where a car-maker has got to offer pick-up trucks and mid-size sedans in order to record good sales figure. Well, be it the unfortunate time at which it was introduced (economic crisis back in ’09) or that the sedan isn’t just as good enough as the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord & other…

    23 Aug 2014 | 8:55 am
    After unveiling the Golf R 400 Concept at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, Volkswagen made quite a buzz in the tuning world as its concept car used the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine (Type WA888) boosted to 400 hp and 450 Nm of torque. For those who don’t know, the engine is the same used by the VW Golf R and that’s why tuning companies hurried up to boost the engine in order to deliver the same power as the concept car presented at Auto China 2014. The first tuning company to unveil a 400 hp Golf R was Oettinger, but today we have another Golf R that delivers the same…

    andrew@4wheelsnews.com
    23 Aug 2014 | 5:50 am
    Alfa Romeo has just rolled out the 4C but this model isn’t enough to take on rivals such as the Jaguar F-Type or the Porsche 911. As a result, the Italian company owned by Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles is working on a more potent model rumored to be called 6C. What’s more interesting is that the upcoming vehicle will be based on the Maserati Alfieri Concept that was unveiled earlier this year at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Maserati already announced in its 5-year business plan that it will produce the Alfieri Concept and will be introduced in 2016. The Alfa Romeo 6C will follow in…

    For those eager to get their hands on the brand new aluminum-bodied 2015 Ford F-150 we have some bad news. According to a letter signed by Ford’s distribution planning manager Kevin Giacomini and John Bradley, the first customers will get their new F-150 by the year end while those who will order specific configurations may not receive their vehicle until early 2015. Apparently, there is a logical explanation for this as Ford wants to make sure that they not compromise their commitment to quality just to deliver the F-150 few weeks earlier. Next week, on Monday, Ford will close the…

    Back in 2012, Bentley released the first sketches with the Mulsanne Convertible, but in September 2013 company’s CEO Wolfgang Schreiber told the reporters that they will not produce such a vehicle due to the lack of demand. Now, Bentley has a new CEO, Wolfgang Duerheimer, and the Mulsanne Convertible is back on track. The convertible version of the Bentley Mulsanne was in fact a project started by Wolfgang Duerheimer but after his departure from Bentley in 2012, Schreiber killed the project. Now that Duerheimer is back he was a bit irritated when he found out that now work has been done…

    The United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released a new search tool at its Web site that allows car buyers and owners – using a vehicle’s identification number (VIN) -- to identify open or unrepaired safety recalls. Consumers just need to input a VIN to determine out whether a vehicle has any open, unrepaired recalls and whether the carmaker has a fix available. Jim Schulte, NHTSA’s director of digital strategies, remarked that the search tool should be a one-stop shop for consumers. The launch of the search tool comes as carmakers – led…

Thoughtfully, Ferrari is taking the task now of producing more goose bumps out of it, which is the reason behind the first spy-shots of 458 M had just appeared.

  • Worst 2014 SUVs

    SUVs are often known as being some of the most reliable types of vehicles on the road. They can get you where other vehicle’s can’t and many of them have excellent safety features, ample room for passengers, and the perfect balance of cargo space. It’s enough for the average driver to haul large items but too small for them to continually be asked by everyone they know to help with moving. But, while SUVs may, in general, be solid, dependable cars, some are simply not as good as others. What makes a car bad for one person might not matter as much for the other. This is why…

But, while the typical SUV will generally be safer than the typical compact, not all SUVs are created equal. Some are quite a bit safer than others. There are several factors that go into determining which SUVs are the safest. A car’s size, its features, and its crash rating (which is usually measured through careful testing) are all considered.

In fact, per AAA, the average cost to own a car is 9,122 dollars each year, with part of the bill coming from fuel, insurance, and maintenance. The latter is particularly pricey: between 2012 and 2013, the cost of car maintenance rose by 11.26 percent. Presently, it is nearly 5 cents to the mile. Maintenance costs is just one of the reasons it’s so important to drive a vehicle that is…

    by Mike - It seemed like everyone had a camera last week in Monterey County and they were all taking photos of the cool cars that were driving by, sitting on a golf course or participating in the historic races at Laguna Seca.

This Iso Rivolta has a race capable chassis and is powered by the wonderful Corvette 327 cid engine - but it also has a back seat and is a little longer and heavier than one would expect a race car to be.

  • Hardtop convertibles unheralded but more worthy

    James Raia
    22 Aug 2014 | 3:25 pm
    The term hardtop convertible could be construed as an oxymoron. It’s not. By any name or derivative — removable hardtop to retractable hardtop — hardtop convertibles are an deal solution to their prevalent ragtop siblings. But for nearly the past decade, following a New York Times article touting the benefits of retractable hardtops, more car manufacturers have introduce and further promoted their hardtop trims. Still, hardtop convertibles often unheralded. The obvious reason is that with the top up, it’s difficult to know if the vehicle is a convertible. Several-dozen hardtop…

It didn’t make sense because the majority of the route to the start and finish of stage 4 of the USA Pro Challenge was on U.S 50 and then on state route 115. The reason it took so long is because the roads wind through the Rockies and along the Arkansas River.

    Sometimes when we see a film featuring particularly great-looking or iconic cars, we feel compelled to get up and go for a drive.

Cinema has played a great part in increasing (and securing) the popularity of certain cars, and in this blog post we’ll take a look at some of them. Some of the cars we’ll discuss were already…

    There is no doubt that this Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is one stunning piece of machinery, designed with several objectives in mind, to increase driving pleasure, guarantee performance and to ensure comfort and safety. Named the 599 after its engine displacement and GTB short for Gran Turismo Berlinetta, and Fiorano after the famous private track Ferrari uses to hone its F1 and road cars.   This stunning red paint on this Ferrari unfortunately was full of swirl marks and contamination, a total of 14 man hours was spent on just the exterior alone of this vehicle, decontaminating the paint…

Any cost associated problems while you were driving would be passed along to Mum or Dad along followed by the lament: when is this going to be fixed? I need to go to the mall and choose a super awesome outfit for Becky’s super awesome party! Ok, so I’m stereotyping… Slightly.

When you move, you should make a few piles of things. The “I need this! ” pile, the “I want this” pile, and finally, the “Do I really need or want this? ” pile. Take everything from that last pile and give it away. Have got a yard sale with the stuff of value, and everything else goes right to the Goodwill store.

    Interest in electric cars among U.S. consumers continues to rise. News regarding the latest models from Tesla, Cadillac, Fiat, and BMW dominate the media.

    Commutes are getting longer — well over an hour in many U.S. metro areas — and more people are getting on board with ride sharing and carpooling. That’s great for the economy and your pocket book, but not so great if you don’t have the right commuter car. Consider that in 1960, there were almost 74 million cars on the road, but today there are more than 253 million. Even though workplaces are turning virtual, that doesn’t mean people are driving any less. For Americans who are en route to the office, having the right vehicle to get you there is just as important as other…

    Interest in electric cars among U.S. consumers continues to rise. News regarding the latest models from Tesla, Cadillac, Fiat, and BMW dominate the media. Consumers seem adamant about reducing or completely eliminating their fuel usage. In 2011, the average American household spent roughly $4,000 on gasoline alone, which is just a fraction of the money you can expect to spend on an automobile. A new entry-level Tesla car has been announced. The Model E will debut in 2017, and it reportedly will cost half the price of current Tesla luxury lines. Take a look at how this car could change the…

  • The Top Commuter Cars for 2014

    Bob
    10 May 2014 | 6:10 am
    Commutes are getting longer — well over an hour in many U.S. metro areas — and more people are getting on board with ride sharing and carpooling. That’s great for the economy and your pocket book, but not so great if you don’t have the right commuter car. Consider that in 1960, there were almost 74 million cars on the road, but today there are more than 253 million. Even though workplaces are turning virtual, that doesn’t mean people are driving any less. For Americans who are en route to the office, having the right vehicle to get you there is just as important as other…

    The government of India has finally revised the speed limits for vehicles plying on Indian roads after a long period of 25 years. All these years, national highways in India have not had any official speed limits for cars. According to the new rules, cars can travel at a maximum speed of 100 km/hr while bikes are allowed to go at 80 km/hr. However, the city police will have the power to set specific speed limits for local roads where speeding would be considered dangerous. Hence, while the above speed limits will be applicable on all highways, the deputy commissioners and police will chalk…

    In a recent article, David Addison described the ‘Modern era of the BTCC‘ as the best that it has ever been. He argues that the modern championship boasts packed grids, close racing and a comprehensive television package that blows away any competition from the past. The 2014 season has indeed seen a total reinvention of the championship with the new NGTC regulations coming into force, which has evolved the very nature of the BTCC.

    17 Aug 2014 | 2:38 pm
    Car engines produce a lot of waste heat. It’s one of the basic laws of thermodynamics that energy will change from one form to another, and as not all the chemical potential energy in the petrol or diesel that you put into your tank gets turned into kinetic (motion) energy. Some becomes sound energy and some becomes heat energy. In the normal course of things, a lot of this heat energy gets wasted. But it doesn’t have to be this way.  You can do something useful with that heat.  The most common thing that people do with this head is using it to heat the inside of the car. But you can…

    Australian tv broadcast, in the mid 1970s, a program called Aunty Jack. The spoken theme song featured the lyrical lines: “Though you’re ten feet tall” and “You’re big, bold and tough”, lines appropriate for Toyota’s evergreen behemoth Land Cruiser. The Sahara sits at the top of the Land Cruiser family tree, complete with brawny 4.6L petrol V8 (or 4.5L V8 diesel), DVD player and the legendary off road capability, backed up with some hidden modern tech. Is the legend still legendary? A Wheel Thing took the beast bush to find out. The Donk. The numbers…

Jeep’s solidly revamped Cherokee is a four model range and A Wheel Thing has backed up the entry level Sport against the top of the tree Trailhawk. The Donk Jeep has lobbed a 2.4L four cylinder and 3.2L V6 at the Cherokee; the Sport’s alloy block four (only available in the Sport and somewhat of a misnomer calling it that) pumps 130kW and 229Nm of torque versus the 200kW and 316Nm from the Longitude/Limited/Trailhawk…

    If you take a look through the paint section of any home renovation store, you’re bound to come across those paint charts that leave you bewildered as to how many shades of white (and blue and grey and…) are possible.  So in some ways, it’s a bit puzzling as to why cars tend to come in fewer colours.  Look at the range of car colours available in any new model. Usually, there’ll be offerings in white, at least one grey and a red of some sort. If you’re lucky, there’ll be a few other shades: blue, green, yellow or even orange.

  • What to do when you breakdown on the motorway!

    Editor
    20 Aug 2014 | 1:04 am
    According to the Highway Code if you are driving on a motorway and your vehicle develops a problem you should drive off the motorway as soon as you are able to either at the next exit or at a service station. If you are unable to leave the motorway and your car breaks down you should pull over to the hard shoulder and come to a halt as far to the left as you can. You should make sure that your wheels are turned to the left so that, should your vehicle be shunted from behind, it would tend to steer further away from the motorway rather than onto it.

    All brands of gasoline are not the same. The gas at one station is different from the gas at the station down the street. It is similar to how different brands of apple juice don’t taste the same and have varying amounts of vitamins depending on the types of apples used in the juice. Brands of gas have different additives that increase performance, clean while they burn, and reduce emissions. In 1995, the EPA put a minimum limit on additives for gas sold in the United States. Since then, each brand of gas must contain a certain amount of additives that reduce emissions and reduce the…

    Nicole Wakelin
    23 Aug 2014 | 7:30 am
    The 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 was a Mustang with a mission. When the car was introduced in 1969, designers were tasked with making a Mustang that would be unbeatable racing on SCCA courses across the country, and on local drag strips. The Boss fit the bill perfectly. Although the Ford Mustang was already a hot property as a sexy, sporty ride, it didn’t quite have the reputation it has today as a true performance car. The Boss was specifically created to change that perception forever. It all started when Ford tasked engineers with making the Mustang Boss a leader in the SCCA Trans-Am…

    A Catalytic Converter commonly referred to as a “Cat” and works by causing unburned fuel to be chemically altered, helping to reduce the overall harmful emissions released. This is done through the use of a catalyst, normally a precious metal. The most common material used today is Platinum. Other metals and combinations of metals can also be used as a catalyst, such as Nickel, Copper, Iron or Manganese. Platinum and Rhodium used in combination form a reduction catalyst, while Platinum and Palladium form an oxidation catalyst. The usage of such rare metals had made these…

    Photo Credit: azlvplaya via Compfight cc Brake rotor is one of the key components involved in a disc brake assembly. The rotor or disc (as it is also called) is mounted on the wheel hub and rotates along with the wheel. When the driver depresses the brake pedal, the brake pads housed within the brake calipers squeeze the rotor to slow down the speed of the vehicle. It is the friction between the rotor and the pads that slows down the wheel or in other words the kinetic energy of the moving rotor is converted to heat energy. Rotors have a variety of surface designs that mainly depend upon…

Probably, many people have been accustomed to the fact that these cars are not much different from ordinary street vehicles (of course, except their coloring). So, partly it’s true. But in some countries policemen use vehicles, most of which we can confidently call “the sport cars” – engines in hundreds of horsepower, acceleration to 100 km/h in a few seconds… Check the list of the coolest police cars used in different countries all over the world…!

    Standard auto insurance policies in the USA assume that every eligible driver in your household will drive the insured vehicle at some stage. So, they would ask their applicants who else in their home can drive and include the details of those people in their premium calculations. Including them would make sure that the company charges the right premium. Also, inclusions would reduce any arguments about who was insured or not. There have been cases in the past where the scope of the policy has been questioned by relatives on policyholders. It still may be possible to exclude a certain driver…

Below are some reasons why you may be having difficulty: 1.  We have had two consecutive months of declining used car prices according to the auctions and Automotive News. 2. It’s not a good plan to source your cars the same way you were in a recent month like May. Pricing is different from month to month and you can’t be successful in August the same way you were successful in May. 3.  It’s a mistake to price your used cars like you did earlier this year because with new vehicle…

    Last week National Electric Vehicle Sweden, the current owner of Saab, released a statement denying that the company is insolvent.

This week the news is slightly more encouraging, as Saab has just confirmed the existence of some 9-3 Electric Vehicle prototypes. In fact, the cars were built back in May, so perhaps the timing of the announcement was deliberately intended to restore some confidence in the brand's future?

    The Pontiac brand was introduced by General Motors in 1926 as the companion marque to GM’s Oakland division. Within months of its introduction, Pontiac was outselling Oakland. As a result of Pontiac’s rising sales, versus Oakland’s declining sales, Pontiac became the only companion marque to survive its parent, with Oakland ceasing production in 1932.

And when you settle down, get married and have a family with your significant other, you will doubtless need a big family car. Most parents buy estate cars or people carriers. The Ford Focus estate and Audi A3 Sportback are just two of the most-popular family cars in the United Kingdom. A lot of families tend to stick with used cars.

    A Catalytic Converter commonly referred to as a “Cat” and works by causing unburned fuel to be chemically altered, helping to reduce the overall harmful emissions released. This is done through the use of a catalyst, normally a precious metal. The most common material used today is Platinum. Other metals and combinations of metals can also be used as a catalyst, such as Nickel, Copper, Iron or Manganese. Platinum and Rhodium used in combination form a reduction catalyst, while Platinum and Palladium form an oxidation catalyst. The usage of such rare metals had made these…

The rotor or disc (as it is also called) is mounted on the wheel hub and rotates along with the wheel. When the driver depresses the brake pedal, the brake pads housed within the brake calipers squeeze the rotor to slow down the speed of the vehicle. It is the friction between the rotor and the pads that slows down the wheel or in other words the kinetic energy of the moving rotor is converted to heat energy. Rotors have a variety of surface designs that mainly depend upon…

Occasionally they tell you when you’ve agreed a deal, almost as if they need to get it of their chest, some are too embarrassed, Sometimes it’s the price, sometimes you have the right thing at the right time in the right colour, but sometimes it’s just the little things you do.When I was working at weekends and during the school holidays washing cars at a…

I've found over the years that if the part or accessory (in this case an old jack) is still solid structurally, it can often times be saved and reconditioned or restored and put back into service.

This is likely because the shift in model year used to come in early fall months like…

Well, the Department of Transportation is working on a solution to this problem. Communication between vehicles. Officials imagine that cars will be able to send warnings to one another when a driver slams on the brakes, runs the red light, or encounters any other unseen dangers. The warnings…

    A new bill is currently under review by the House that could cause serious implications for repeat DUI offenders. House Bill 1733 would increase prison time and impose more severe penalties on repeat offenders.

  • Is Your Car Rolling Through Turns? Check Your Sway Bar Links!

    Oscaro Staff
    20 Aug 2014 | 1:26 pm
    Is your car swaying through turns? Is it making clunking or rattling noises when you hit pothole or make a sharp turn? If so, your sway bar link could be bad. Your sway bar is what keeps your vehicle level and prevents “rolling” or swaying in turns. As one side of the car compresses into the turn, the sway bar lifts the compressed spring up while simultaneously forcing the opposite side down, leveling out the ride. The stabilizer bar links act as the arms that attach the axle or control arm to the sway bar. Fixers know that a damaged link essentially makes the entire sway bar…

Fords are a safe option. These ideas persist through time – they stick. Often, there’s not a lot that a car manufacturer can do about their brand image. That’s true of Volvo.

Plus, they depreciate in value the second that you buy them, making them a bit of a silly investment. You could always get a car on finance, but I find it much more effective to save for the car and pay it off in one. This way, you don’t have any more unnecessary payments to worry about. Anyway, you’re definitely buying a used car; so here’s what to look for before handing over your hard earned cash: You can easily…

  • Choosing the Right Tyres For 4×4 Use

    4 Aug 2014 | 10:39 pm
    If you drive a small compact, family car or sports car you will think having the right tyres is important. However, when you own a 4×4 designed for the rough off-road terrain then great tyres can save your life. All tyres are important, regardless of what you drive. They provide your vehicle with the contact between itself and the ground surface. Like with all tyres, simply having the most expensive tyres are not always the best option. As a 4×4 owner, choosing the right tyre for your vehicle and the terrain in which you operate on is vital. Never go for the biggest tyres, or the…
