  • Report: Porsche unveils new turbocharged four-cylinder for base Macan elsewhere

    admin
    23 Apr 2014 | 1:27 pm
    A new report is in that says Porsche has just introduced their own 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder for the basic Macan. It’s the first turbocharged inline-four since the beloved 968 of the 1990s. While the 968′s four was a massive 3.0L unit, the Macan’s engine is goes for a much smaller 2.0L displacement, but is still good for 237hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Mated to Porsche’s PDK-ness, the base Macan will sprint to 62mph in just 6.9 seconds while returning a combined fuel economy cycle of 31.3 mpg US. This four-cylinder Macan won’t be sold here in the US, but…
  • Report: Subaru WRX hatchback downplayed again, despite previous reports

    admin
    23 Apr 2014 | 1:20 pm
    In a sort of automotive news tug-o-war, there seems to be conflicting reports now, surrounding the emergence of a Subaru WRX five-door hatchback. When the WRX was first revealed, Subaru didn’t say that a hatchback was on the way. Following that, a report from Australia’s Motoring.com said that Subaru was thinking about it… But a new update is apparently in from MotorTrend, who spoke to Subaru USA directly after reaching out about the issue. Subaru USA themselves said that a WRX hatchback is not planned, despite statements from Subaru’s project manager, Masuo…
  • Report: Lexus IS250 to get turbocharged four-banger

    admin
    23 Apr 2014 | 1:13 pm
    Some rumors have surfaced surrounding the current Lexus IS250, which according to MotorTrend, will be receiving a turbocharged four-banger in place of its naturally-aspirated and gutless 2.5L V6. According to the report, the IS250 will most likely receive the same turbocharged engine as the incoming NX200t, revealed at this year’s auto show in Beijing, recently. The new 2.0L four is supposedly good for 238hp and 259 lb-ft of torque in the NX200t, which is a big increase over the aging 2.5L V6 that makes 204hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. That V6 needs to motivate more than 3,400lbs of…
  • Report: Mercedes to launch C450 AMG Sport in 2015

    23 Apr 2014 | 12:45 pm
    AutoCar in the UK recently learned that Mercedes-Benz is looking to close the market gap in between the top-dog C-Class AMG and the top-of-the-line non-AMG C-Class by building a C450 AMG Sport for the 2015 model year. The C450 will sit above the C400 and below the upcoming C63 AMG. Rumors indicate the use of Mercedes-Benz’s twin-turbocharged M276 3.0L V6, which could range from 330hp to 367hp thanks to more boost from the snail and rebuilt internals. The option of rear- or all-wheel drive will be available while the trans axle is expected to be automated. The C450 AMG Sport will not be…

    Hyundai is continuing to ride their wave of success as AutomotiveNews recently reported that Hyundai North America’s CEO, Dave Zuchowski, confirmed to be preparing 12 new models for the next three years. According to the interview, the focus will be on new and emerging segments, like the compact crossover market, which is rapidly expanding in all markets around the world. “Those new products are going to drive good growth and half of that growth is going to come from an increased presence in the CUV segments,” remarked Zuchowski.

    The Truth About Cars

  • New York 2014: Outtakes Part 2 – Expand Your Horizons

    Derek Kreindler
    23 Apr 2014 | 9:58 am
    3-Series. 3-Series GT. 3-Series Touring. 4-Series. 4-Series Gran Coupe. X3. X4. Not too long ago, it was simple to decipher BMW’s model lineup and nomenclature. One sausage, many lengths. These days, you need the Rosetta Stone for niche variants to figure out what’s what. But I did have a brief moment of clarity on the floor of the New York Auto Show. It turns out, the 4GC is really just a 5-door hatchback/liftback, like the old Plymouth Horizon (or Sundance, as shown above) or the Skoda Octavia. It’s a very practical bodystyle, but hatchback is a dirty word to American car…
  • New York 2014: Outtakes Part 1 – The Masses Are Asses

    Derek Kreindler
    23 Apr 2014 | 9:01 am
    One of the cars I was least impressed with was the Mercedes-Benz GLA. Even when giving the show floor example the benefit of the doubt for being pre-production or early build, this car just screams “poor execution”. Like the CLA, the interior has a veneer of “premium” – until you get up close and see that the wood “veneer” is really just molded plastic with a tortoise-shell looking finish. The switches are all horribly cheap and the screen jutting out of the dash is reminiscent of a cheap Taiwan-made Android tablet. Most glaring was the rear hatch…

    TTAC reader Majda shares his tale of becoming a driver for ridesharing app Lyft. Few car enthusiasts get paid to drive soused, singing young women around town. I do. The price was zip-tying a pink moustache onto the grille of my Mazda3. I like to think of myself as the median reader of TTAC. I drive an enthusiast-approved Mazda3, did a DE course at Summit Point Raceway, and handle my own maintenance within reason. I own a Mityvac and am disappointed with its oil seals. I believe, against all evidence, that my girlfriend will appreciate it if I replace the stock e-brake handle. There is one…
  • Saturation Dive: The GM 8L90 transmission

    Timur Apakidze
    23 Apr 2014 | 7:09 am
    On the surface, there are many similarities between the ZF 8HP transmission family and the GM 8L90. Namely both use 4 gear sets, 5 shifting elements (3 clutches and two brakes), off axis pumps, and have roughly the same gear ratio spread at about 7:1 overall spread. The saturation dive is not about dealing with things that are on the surface. To be entirely honest as the details started to emerge on the GM 8L family of transmissions I suspected that it would end up being a ZF licensed design, the ZF 8HP after all is a very good design in my opinion. But the abstract of the paper that…

    Automotive News reports General Motors has split its engineering division in two, with executives Ken Kezler and Kenneth Morris becoming vice presidents of global vehicle components and subsystems and global product integrity, respectively. The split also means vice president of (what was) global vehicle engineering, John Calabrese will retire, though the retirement is alleged to not be linked with the ongoing recall crisis. The immediate changes are the result of the ongoing review of the ignition switch issue affecting the company since early this year, with the aim of flagging potential…

  • Bee Keeping: Long-Term Test Wrap-Up on Subaru’s Buzzy BRZ

    Mike Sutton
    23 Apr 2014 | 3:52 pm
    The Subaru BRZ, along with its Scion FR-S twin, is a car of enormous significance to enthusiasts. Not since Mazda’s Miata two-seater made its debut 25 years ago has a new rear-drive sports car been so attainable yet so dedicated to the art of driving. But while we are able to concede some refinements in the name of the Subieyota’s appealing base price and handling prowess, its overall polish remains a bit, shall we say, rough.READ MORE ››

    The pricing for the options on the 2015 Ford Mustang has gone live on the ordering screens of Ford dealers across the nation, and the internet is all abuzz with juicy morsels of product information. From what we’ve seen so far, it appears that there will be five different basic models: a 3.7-liter V-6 (P8A), a 2.3-liter four-cylinder with EcoBoost (P8T), a 5.0-liter V-8 GT (P8C), a special 50th Anniversary GT (P8R), and an SVT (P8J) which is rumored to be the next Shelby.

  • Baking the Perfect Burnout: 2015 Mustang GT to Pack Standard Factory Line Lock

    Ford is giving its 2015 Mustang GT a modern way of performing one of the muscle car’s oldest tricks: the burnout. Known variously as a burnout, brake torque, power brake, brake stand, and numerous other regional derivatives over the years, the object of the maneuver remains the same:Holding the car still so the rear tires spin themselves into hot, sticky rubber circles traction-optimized for a quick launch. The sweet-ass billowing plume of smoke is just an added bonus. Ostensibly employed before staging at the drag strip, old-school burnout methods generally involved either balancing the…

    Andrew Ling
    20 Apr 2014 | 11:55 pm
    The compact sport luxury sedan market is highly sought after and has many players from around the world. The Infiniti Q50’s competitors include the Audi A4, BMW 3-series, Cadillac ATS, Lexus IS, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and the Volvo S60. The Q50 was originally supposed to be the successor to Infiniti’s highly successful G37 sports sedan. However strong sales for the G37 prompted the management to rethink that decision and the Q50 was sold alongside the G37 for a short period of time. For 2014 though, the G37 is gone and along with a revamping of models names (for clarity-sake), the Q50 is…

    When Hyundai entered the luxury market in 2008 with the Genesis, it had a lot to prove. Feature for feature, the car showed it could hold its own among more established luxury brands and become a modest success, which led Hyundai to reach even higher with the Equus. With the all-new, second-generation 2015 Genesis, Hyundai still has to try harder to prove that it can compete. For example, the 2015 Genesis has many of the advanced features found on cars in this class: heated and ventilated 12-way power front seats, a panoramic sunroof and driver assists such as automatic emergency braking to…

For years, the company (which owns MSN) has provided a majority of the software for automakers’ infotainment systems, and it became a major part of the branding for the Ford Sync system. But as automotive infotainment has evolved toward integrating smartphones to bring cloud-based content and services into a vehicle, Microsoft wants to move beyond supplying embedded software.

This is the second generation of Chevy’s groundbreaking extended-range electric car, and though its styling is still not as avant-garde as that of the original Volt concept shown in 2007, it should still turn heads when...

This is one Smart car that's not taking any guff, however. From what we can gather, it's a purpose-built drag car with a Smart ForTwo's carapace thrown over the top, so it's not really a...

    NEW YORK — Volkswagen debuted a concept version of what is destined to become the Golf SportWagen, which replaces the Jetta SportWagen in the automaker’s U.S. lineup. The move follows Volkswagen’s U.S. introduction of the 2015 Golf. The Jetta SportWagen was actually a previous-generation Golf variant and was sold as such in other markets.  The take rate for the diesel-powered version of the Jetta SportWagen in the United States was consistently upwards of 80%. The new Golf SportWagen is lighter than the current model, due to its use of high and ultra-high strength steels.  The…

    16 Apr 2014 | 12:06 pm
    Mercedes-Benz (CLA), Lincoln (MKC) and Audi (A3) aren’t the only automakers searching for additional sales volume by moving downmarket to smaller vehicles that are intended to hopefully maintain the brand’s character at a lower price point. The idea is to then keep those buyers as they move to larger, more-profitable models. The latest brand to take a play from this book is Jeep, with the all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade. The Renegade looks like no other vehicle, and like no other Jeep, yet it still is clearly a Jeep. Forget what you may read about a Fiat-based front wheel drive…

  • NY Auto Show: 2015 Toyota Camry

    Chris Haak
    16 Apr 2014 | 7:33 am
    Having a track record of success can lead to complacency. Success is not easy and is not typically sustainable without considerable effort. In Toyota’s case, having the Camry as the best-selling car (note: full-size trucks kill it in sales) for the past dozen years allowed it to take its eye off the ball for the past few. The new-for-2012 Camry attempted to add a nicer interior, more style, and better performance, but competitors are constantly upping their game, and the 2012 Camry was not setting the class benchmark. It remains to be seen whether the new 2015 Camry does until we have…

    It’s hard to overstate what huge plans Toyota had for the its then-new Tundra pickup, circa 2007.  The company spent a fortune developing their jumbo-sized 2007 Tundra, talking to people who used trucks (though every truck manufacturer says they do that), shedding the “good but small” mantra of the first-generation Tundra and going with a truck that went toe-to-toe with the dominant American-brand pickups.  Toyota even built an all-new factory for the Tundra in San Antonio, Texas, in the heart of truck country.  Strong initial sales tapered off, and the Tundra remained an…

    While it might have been hard to image a Chrysler that could hit the 36 mile per gallon (MPG) mark just a few years back, the engineers have nailed the number with the 2015 Chrysler 200. But fuel efficiency is just the starting point for the completely redesigned model. The 2015 200 is new from the ground up, packed with technology, and brilliantly executed. It’s time to leave your impressions of the outgoing model (and the Sebring on which it was based) behind. The 2015 puts Chrysler into the thick of the hotly contested mid-size sedan market.

They offer a higher level of protection for the drivetrain, reduced friction, and the potential for an incremental improvement in fuel efficiency. All that said, one of the best parts about switching to synthetic oil is the increase in the number of miles driven between oil changes. In the video that accompanies this post, I demonstrate how easy it is to perform a D-I-Y oil change on a (slightly) lifted Jeep Wrangler TJ.

    Values of used cars dipped in April as high numbers of March plate-change trade-ins hit the market. In the first two weeks of the month, for 3yr/60,000 mile vehicles, values fell -2.6% in the City Car and SUV segments. Most other segments saw falls of between -1.6% and -1.8%. Conversely, Convertibles, Coupe Cabriolets, Luxury Executive and Supercars saw rises of between +0.1% and +0.7%. “For most mainstream cars the increase in supply, coupled with a reduction in demand has begun to undermine the unusually robust market that has characterised the past year,” said CAP.

That changed today, as thousands of kits with new ignition switches and ignition cylinders are being shipped to dealer service stations. GM mailed letters to about 1.4 million owners of 2003-07 vehicles last week, encouraging them to contact a local dealer to make an appointment for the 90-minute repair. Owners of affected 2008-11 models will have to wait until about mid-May. Still, the shipment…

    There is a class of commercial vehicle known as the "multi-stop," "walk-in delivery," or "step van," which is just what the names suggest: a truck that is used to make small-lot deliveries to multiple customers in a single trip, and is therefore designed to be easy for the driver to get in and out of at each stop. The most common examples today are the parcel vans used by UPS, FedEx, DHL, and your friendly neighborhood letter carrier. The subject of today's post is a "multi-stop" that was once all but universal, but has disappeared from the ranks…

  • One Of Five Porsche 911 Carrera GTS “B59″ Offered For Sale

    Bradley Brownell
    23 Apr 2014 | 7:00 pm
    A few years ago, Porsche wanted to do something special for Hurley Haywood as he entered retirement from professional sports car racing. In commemoration of his long career with the Brumos brand, predominately with Porsche, the factory assembled five special edition B59 versions of the 997 Carrera GTS. Five cars were built to commemorate Mr. Haywood's five wins at the legendary 24 hours of Daytona. The B59, ostensibly commemorating Hurley's third win (1977, Ecurie Escargot 911 Carrera RSR with John Graves and David Helmick), #3 of 5, has come up for sale. Being offered at $159,000, this…
  • Here’s A Video Explaining Exactly How To Convert Your Porsche 993′s Headlights To HID

    Pepper Girl
    21 Apr 2014 | 2:54 pm
    If you own a Porsche 993 and aren't fortunate enough to have factory Litronics then you know just how weak the factory lights are for night driving. In fact, in my opinion, they're down right dangerous. One of the fastest, easiest and best upgrades you can do for your 993 is to convert to High Intensity Discharge (HID) bulbs. Not only is it a simple and practical project, but completing it on your own will make your 993 more enjoyable to drive at night and give you the confidence to tackle larger and more complex projects in the future. On a scale of 1 to 5 wrenches with 5 being the hardest,…

    SPOILER ALERT: IF you don't yet know Porsche's results in last Sunday's WEC inaugural race, and you don't want to, then read no further. Otherwise, enjoy! On Sunday the 20th Porsche returned to the World Endurance Championship with a double victory in the GTE-Pro class and a podium finish for the 919 Hybrid. While the race wasn't without issues for the 919 (one of the two cars had to retire early and the 919 that landed on podium did so 2 laps down) it was still a successful first outing for Porsche's factory teams. Take a look at some of the highlights and driver's thoughts in this quick…
  • Legendary Lineage Meets Legendary Driver – The Brumos Porsche B59 Story

    Pepper Girl
    21 Apr 2014 | 11:26 am
    History was made back in 2011 when Brumos Porsche announced the creation of five rare, factory-built 911 Carrera GTS B59 Edition coupes built in honor of racing legend Hurley Haywood's amazing overall Daytona 24 Hour victory record. At the time, Haywood was the only racer to achieve five overall wins. "In creating the 911 Carrera GTS B59 Editions, we honored the close working relationship Brumos has enjoyed with the factory over the years," explains Ray Shaffer, Brumos Porsche general manager. "The late Peter Gregg often ordered unique street and race cars for himself through his factory…
  • Porsche Snuck A 4-Cylinder Macan Into The World Premier Of The Boxster/Cayman GTS In Beijing

    Pepper Girl
    21 Apr 2014 | 10:43 am
    By now you've probably heard that Porsche is finally launching GTS versions of both the Boxster and Cayman. However, chances are you didn't get to see the introduction of these newest models live. With China as Porsche's 2nd largest market in the world (and 2-door sports cars make up nearly half of all the cars they've delivered there) it's no wonder Porsche chose Beijing for their introduction. However, more importantly, in addition to the Cayman and Boxster GTS, Porsche unveiled new a base Macan (lower down the model lin than the S model) and built specifically for the Chinese market. This…

    I recently received a wonderful surprise gift from my sister’s friend Sarah, a London resident who visited New England last summer. After spending an evening in Bennington, she was well aware of my automotive interests, and she sent over two sets of special stamps from the Royal Mail Mint. This group of 10 stamps – six of “The Thoroughbreds” and four of “The Workhorses” – came together as the British Auto Legends Presentation Pack. Handsomely presented, these full color, landscape-oriented stamps are a wonderful celebration of British motoring…
  • Joliet, Illinois, 1970s

    Daniel Strohl
    23 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    It seems that in the course of our carspotting exercises, we’ve come across plenty of photos from the late late 1970s or early early 1980s that are pretty hard to pin down based on the ages of the cars in the scene. In fact, it’s almost a given for photos of that era, and we think one of the culprits for the ambiguity may be the twin early 1980s recessions that caused fewer people to buy new cars in the new decade, leaving more 1970s cars on the road. Or maybe it’s because the automakers – in response to the twin fuel crises of the 1970s – started putting smaller…

    It almost doesn’t add up: a Northeast-based car that has reportedly spent every day of the last 45 years on the road, and it hasn’t crumbled into a heap of rust? Yet that’s what’s claimed of this six-cylinder 1969 AMC Rebel station wagon for sale on Hemmings.com – an unrestored car that shows a bit of wear and tear here and there, but no terminal rot, not even on the underside photos included in the listing. From the seller’s description: This is a very unique car. It’s a survivor with original paint that has been used every day of its life, well…

So much has been written about the Ramchargers, a group of Chrysler employees united by a passion for drag racing, that it can be difficult to separate fact from urban legend. In his 2009 book We Were The Ramchargers, author and former Ramcharger Dave Rockwell attempted to do just that, covering everything from the group’s origins in the late 1950s to its dissolution in 1967. This weekend, he’ll elaborate on that history as part of the Gilmore Museum’s speaker series. Like most informal and…

  • Porsche 911 GT3 Named 2014 World Performance Car, but Does it Deserve it? [w/Poll]

    23 Apr 2014 | 5:18 pm
    You have probably heard that the Audi A3 snagged the 2014 World Car of the Year award at the New York Auto Show, but the gala included more honors, including the 2014 World Performance Car award, which went to the Porsche 911 GT3. Under normal circumstances, I don’t think anyone could argue that the award is undeserved, but given Porsche’s recall action announced on February 20 which involved all 2014 Porsche 911 GT3s built (785 vehicles), I believe the jurors should have given it a second thought.

  • Speed Cameras Represent Bad Public Policy for the Citizens of Illinois

    NMA
    22 Apr 2014 | 8:13 am
    By John Bowman, Communications Director, National Motorists Association The legislative proposal to allow communities throughout Illinois to use speed camera traffic enforcement (photo radar) represents bad public policy. If enacted it will seriously infringe on the rights of the driving public, harm the economies of communities that adopt it and shift the emphasis of traffic enforcement from safety to a for-profit enterprise driven by ticket quotas. By its very nature the use of cameras to remotely monitor traffic for potential violations and automatically issue citations is anathema to the…

    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist People get into bikes for many reasons, but probably two of the big ones are fun – and affordability. The fun is directly proportional to the affordability, too. A bike you can buy outright eases stress. Big payments for the next several years adds stress. And stress is the mortal enemy of fun. As motorcycles have become more complex, more features-laden (ABS, programmable throttle tip-in, GPS) they’ve also become (just like cars) more expensive to buy and maintain. And thus, in a very significant way a lot less fun. Even if they are quicker…

It’s the 320i — and it comes with a slightly less powerful version of the 2.0 liter engine found in the 328i . . . and a 36 MPG (highway) EPA rating. It also comes with a $32,750 sticker price — vs. $37,300 for the more powerful (and thirstier) 328i.

And those inadequacies can't mask any of its positives. This Thai-built Mitsubishi, from the start, is an...

We sort of figured from the get-go that this thing had serious production intent, and lo, our trusty spy photographers have just caught this prototype of the slick Benz, likely to be named MLC, out on the road. Even under heavy camouflage, it's easy to see that the shape of the MLC - including specific elements like the front fascia design and S-Class Coupe-inspired taillamps - have carried over from the concept.

He came to Ford in 2006 after serving as head of Boeing's commercial aircraft division, streamlined operations, sold off the costly elements of its Premier Automotive Group and saved Ford from having to be bailed out by the federal government like its cross-town rivals Chrysler and General Motors did. But as we reported mere days ago, he's widely expected to step down from the chief executive's office at Ford shortly. So what's next for one of the most successful executives…

The C-XR blends the styling of Citroën's hatchbacks with some SUV cues. Up front, it has a wide, chrome grille that links directly into the headlights, and lower down, there are vertically mounted LED…

Take body styles from BMW, Toyota, Volvo and Mazda, mix up all the engines, add some turbos and a whole load of creativity, and you’re almost there. Did I mention Dodge Viper or Porsche? No? Well…

    Datsun Diet: The Shakotan PlanInaka hunting Some of Japan’s coolest cars can be found in the most unexpected of places. Case in point, Hello Special’s Works-style Datsun S30. Welcome to Japanese inaka. That’s the term used to refer to countryside – rural Japan if you will. Away from the hustle and bustle of crammed Japanese cities, the countryside offers up a far more relaxed pace of life; a little more space to play around and an overall stress-free existence. It’s also where Japanese car culture gets, well, real. Actually, let me rephrase that – where it gets more nationalistic.

    The Craziest Car Show In Europe Welcome to Elmia As I sit here in my hotel room eating a strange yet delicious chocolate bar that I can’t quite pronounce the name of, I’ll admit that I’m struggling to decide on a starting point for this story. My confusion is probably due to the fact that I left my brain on the floor after it melted into a puddle at the Bilsport Performance & Custom Motor Show in Jönköping, Sweden, this past weekend. During three days at the Elmia Exhibition and Convention Centre I saw a Volvo perform a fantastic burnout outside a giant IKEA store, a military…

    The Four-Door GT-R Creeps CloserIt’s hard not to be excited about the prospect of the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge, as it essentially packs much of the Nissan GT-R’s performance into a four-door wrapper. Officially speaking, Infiniti has not announced that the car will go into production, but given the positive reaction to the concept I’d say that it’s probably very likely. Not only that, but Nissan’s luxury arm has continued to develop the car and has decided to keep us updated along the way. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yV9NkhcTOYs Testing of the prototype has been happening at the…

    Fast & Furious Goes RChttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARDw_hGEk_8 As we saw in the Subaru vs stick bomb clip from the other day, people have been doing some pretty crazy video stuff with RC vehicles of late. This one though, might be even better, with all the cheesy action we’ve come to love from the Fast & Furious franchise reenacted in 1:10 scale. The short film from Vax Studio has all the F&F cues: wheelie burnouts, drifting, cop car chases – and of course plenty of nitrous oxide. I especially like the way they’ve nailed the Hollywood camera angles here too. Once you’ve…

  • 2015 Nissan Murano Shakes Up Crossover Segment Again With Bold Lines, New Tech

    When the first-generation Nissan Murano made its debut, it pushed the boundaries of an entire segment. No longer did midsize SUVs have to be boxy, or truckish, or have any pretense of ruggedness. The Murano was curvy, offered car-like handling, and was relatively fuel efficient. Now in its third-generation, the Murano is coming into its own with an improvement on that original, winning formula. Nissan is convinced that a dramatic design language and a host of new technologies is just what the all-new Murano needs to be a dominant force once again in the burgeoning midsize crossover segment.

But leave it to the Swedish brand to put its own unique spin on this basic, ubiquitous safety  device. Aiming for a lightweight, less bulky alternative to the traditional child seat, Volvo came up with an inflatable concept made of drop-stitched fabric. It can be inflated in less than 40 seconds and weighs just 11 pounds. When not in use, Volvo’s concept can be deflated just as quickly. And, it can be stowed in a weekend bag together with other necessities for…

    Squashed crossover coupes that try to look like SUVs are officially a thing. From the Land Rover Evoque to the BMW X6, the impractical mash-up between sports coupe and sport utility has slowly infiltrated the car market. I don’t know why, exactly, because they don’t sell very well. In fact, the Acura ZDX came and went faster than a Lyrid meteor. Very few ever left dealership lots, probably because the ZDX looked like a duck that had been hit by a car. Mercedes-Benz wants to take a shot at the crossover coupe and has introduced the Concept Coupe SUV, which the head of design at MB…

    As the singer Lorde likes to say, “But everybody’s like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece. Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.” It’s interesting that the Maybach made it into the lyrics of a hit pop song, considering the luxury car company built its last car in 2012. Owned by the people who bring us Mercedes-Benz, Maybach floundered in the luxury game and couldn’t keep up with the likes of Bentley and Rolls-Royce. Perhaps thanks to a young singer, the brand is being revived and will attempt to sell to young millionaires in the United States.

In places like Los Angeles, the commute consists of congested freeways and long lines of stop-and-go traffic.

In California, though, there’s another option—assuming you have the right vehicle. Lane splitting is…

    Ferrari’s attempts to try and pull some positives away from a dismal week in Bahrain came unstuck as the Fernando Alonso was forced to withdraw from testing after just 12 laps. In the first of four in-season tests, Ferrari had been testing their new turbo hybrid engine in a bid to try and find some extra pace out of a struggling car, as well as focusing on a lack of traction and driveability from a power-unit that has failed to deliver. After a modest first day of testing, Ferrari failed to find any real answers to their problems after recording just 12 laps on Day Two in Bahrain, topping…

    Although electric vehicles (EV) make up a small percentage of the overall number of vehicles, the number of EVs is growing rapidly. More people have become averse to fossil-fueled cars to the point that even hybrid cars are not an acceptable option. For them, EVs are the best option for vehicles that don’t pollute from the point of operation. So far, the world leader in EV unit sales is the Nissan Leaf. The car recently passed 100,000 units sold since it was first released in 2010. Nissan expects the market to mushroom with a total of 1.5 million units worldwide by 2020. About the Leaf One…

    Because basic maintenance can go a long way toward improving the safety and dependability of your vehicle, every April is designated as National Car Care Month to encourage owners to give their cars some extra attention. Results of community car care events held throughout the country in 2013 show that most consumers neglect simple maintenance of their cars, with seven out of 10 vehicles failing at least one component of the vehicle inspection process. “Neglected vehicle care almost always means much higher costs down the line in the form of more extensive repairs or lost resale value,”…

That leaked info, though, only told a small part of the story for the new M cars. Now, we have the complete pricing sheet on the new coupe and sedan, direct from BMW. The pricing intel that we had at the time was correct – prices start at $62,000 for four doors and $64,200 for two. Those prices don’t include the $925 destination charge. Potential customers should also plan on spending an extra $550, as seven of the eight…

    No one’s going to confuse the massively popular Ford F-150 pickup truck with a green vehicle, but at least it performs well in an environmental sense when compared to its brethren. The Automotive Science Group (ASG) took on the odd (to us, at least) task of measuring which pickup trucks are friendliest to the environment and found that the big seller in the Blue Oval’s flagship F-series came up big, while the Toyota Tacoma came up, well, slightly smaller. That’s a good thing. Among the 245 light-duty trucks that ASG studied, the 3.7-liter V6-powered F-150 won ASG’s…

Though these thoughts occur to every motorcyclist, they’re less toxic…

That is precisely what happened towards the end of the Chinese grand prix, meaning that a last-lap pass by Kamui Kobayashi did not officially count. Explaining the mishap, Germany's Auto Motor und Sport said that with a couple of laps left to run, the local race director Zhuang Tao asked Charlie Whiting if a white flag should be shown to mark the penultimate lap. By radio, Zhuang relayed Whiting's answer to the flag…

    Mexico is a wonderful country thriving with wildlife, culture and history. I’ve visited three times and each occasion was a superb experience (even the psycho taxi drivers); unfortunately, the only time Mexico is featured on TV is predominantly in news reports on drug wars and horrendous gang related murders. Drug dealing – particularly large scale like the Mexican Cartel – has an economic and social impact, and it’s these vicious killers and dealers who get to pull the strings both politically and socially, too. Whilst they could build their homes out of cash, the majority of Mexico…

    There are three words that describe the 2014 Lexus LX570 5-Door SUV: big, roomy, and comfortable. This SUV from Lexus is a true luxury vehicle, with advanced safety, comfort and quality features. But the downside (or upside, depending on how you look at it,) is it’s also a big, heavy vehicle that can be hard to maneuver in the city. But for those who live in a rural or country setting, this monster SUV is a real treat. What’s new for 2014? The Lexus LX570 remains unchanged for 2014. What hasn’t changed is the LX570′s ability to handle big loads, haul heavy cargo, and…

    For decades, the prospect of electric cars has hovered around the industry, spiking interest when oil prices spiked. But eventually, relief at the pump cooled consumer desires, and few took sustained interest in electric automotive power. It was written off as impractical, expensive, trendy, or all of the above. Manufacturers stuck with improving fuel economy for gas-powered vehicles and, like the market, left electric power for later consideration. When an apparently permanent overall rise in the price of crude oil emerged in the last few years, Ford Motor Company went to the forefront…

While WVO is by no means the answer to all our transportation problems, it does have some redeeming qualities: Emissions testing of WVO shows that it produces lower levels of CO and PM (particulate matter) than diesel when tested in the same vehicle (tested…

    Audi-badged cars haven’t show up frequently at classic car auctions. Occasionally, you’ll see examples of the rare and very pretty 100 Coupé but older collectors still see pre-war Horchs and Auto Unions as the definitive collectible Audis. This is changing as the kids who were thirteen or so in the early 80s—and worshipped at the altar of the all-conquering Sport Quattro— are starting to hit their stride in terms of time and disposable income.  It all bodes extremely well for the collectability of rare and high performance Audis from the 1980s on.  Here are some of the biggest Audi…

I opted to keep the OEM shift knob and go for the short shifter only rather than the trio package, and picked up a great deal during their holiday sale this past December. After driving around for a few weeks, I wish I hadn’t waited so long to get this – what a huge improvement! Shifting feels great and definitely fixes some of my primary complaints with the 6MT S4…even the “lazy” shifts during daily commuting are improved, not to mention how much more…

    I recently had the privilege of attending and driving in the Targa Trophy Experience Event San Diego, the first Targa Trophy rally of 2014, courtesy of my good friend Lon Mok of SoCalEuro. SoCalEuro is an organization best known for their Big SoCalEuro events I’ve covered in the past: 2013, 2012, but also supports the Southern California car scene more broadly, has active forums, and helps organize a ton of events that make the SoCal Euro scene is what it is. Thanks Lon for sending me on your behalf! Targa Trophy is a unique experience, unlike anything else I’ve ever been on. A…
  • Preview: The Next Audi TTS

    Nick Roshon
    21 Mar 2014 | 3:38 pm
    With all of the attention the 2015 Audi A3/S3 is getting, the new TT design has been somewhat overshadowed – but fear not these photos courtesy of Car & Driver show exactly what to expect when the refreshed Audi TT hits the states! There is no confirmed date on when we’ll see the new body style, with Audi announcing that the 2015 TT will be a carryover of the current body style – my guess is we’ll get this car either as a 2015.5 or a 2016 model, but it’s tough to say and that’s pure speculation on my part… The new body style is fairly…

  • Infiniti says it’s time to stop being a second-tier luxury brand

    Matt Campbell

    Japanese luxury brand Infiniti says it’s time to get serious about taking on the German establishment. The Nissan-owned luxury brand, which was made an independent division of the Japanese company late last year, is planning to push a range of new models into production over the next six years – and Infiniti Americas vice president Michael Bartsch told CarAdvice at the 2014 New York auto show in frank terms that the company needs to prove it’s worthy of consideration. “I think we have to be honest – we’ve basically been tier two,” Bartsch said. “The next step is to move up to…
  • 2015 Ford Mustang GT debuts ‘Burnout’ function

    Tim Beissmann
    22 Apr 2014 | 5:17 pm
    Performing a perfect burnout in the 2015 Ford Mustang will be as simple as changing the radio station or setting the cruise control. The all-new Mustang GT will come standard with electronic line-lock – an industry-first software feature that helps drivers smoke up the rear wheels by engaging a function in the car’s on-board computer. Ford explains that when a driver releases the brake pedal with electronic line-lock enabled, the hydraulic control unit for the stability control system keeps the front brakes locked while releasing the rear brakes. Drivers can then apply the accelerator…
  • 2016 Chevrolet Volt spied

    The new-generation 2016 Chevrolet Volt has been caught undergoing testing ahead of its expected debut next year. The all-new petrol-electric hybrid model will reportedly be built on the same underpinnings as the next-generation Cruze small car, a move that will save General Motors significant engineering and development costs and also shave the price of the car significantly. No details have been made official, but the US maker is expected to offer the Volt in two trim levels: a cheaper model will be equipped with a smaller-capacity battery pack that would give it a lower driving range,…

    A subtly updated version of the Subaru BRZ is set to arrive in Australia in the coming months after being unveiled in Japan overnight. The introduction of the 2015 Subaru BRZ comes just days after Toyota announced an almost identical list of upgrades for its half of the Japanese sports car partnership, the 86. As with the 2015 Toyota 86, the updated BRZ features a more rigid fixation of the front suspension and rear shock absorbers and tweaks to the steering system as the car maker aims to deliver more communicative handling and sharper steering. Other updates for Subaru’s rear-wheel-drive…

  • Tried and tested: Honda Accord Hondamatic

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    23 Apr 2014 | 1:13 pm
    In truth, my Honda Accord 1.6-litre Hondamatic shouldn’t really be here. Maintaining it as a working vehicle went beyond the realms of economic common sense many moons ago. Like many unfortunate victims of the hateful Scrappage scheme, it should probably be a red Hyundai i10 by now. Shudder. But thanks to the love of its previous owner, it has managed to survive. A quite remarkable achievement, given its lack of collectable value. On numerous occasions, the lady owner had been told to give it up. To scrap it. For sentimental reasons, this advice was ignored. As previously reported on…

    Justifying a love for the Volkswagen Passat GT 16v may be a tall order. You only need to think about the barroom chat that will inevitably unfold once you’ve announced your new car purchase. Mate: “So, you’ve bought a B3 Passat estate?” You: “Yes, but it’s the GT 16v model, which was so much better than the 8v.” Mate: “OK, but it’s still a Passat wagon, right?” You: “Yes, but it’s got the same engine as the MK2 Golf GTi and the dashboard you’d find in a Corrado VR6.” It’s at this point you should…

  • Mock Nissan NV200 taxis trick NY commuters and cops

    24 Apr 2014 | 3:50 am
    Nissan NV200 vans dressed up as yellow New York taxis to ferry visitors and VIPs city during the New York Auto Show looked so similar to the real thing that police officers wanted to issue their drivers some tickets. As snow and rain fell on Manhattan streets, a number of commuters caught glimpse of the mock taxis and hailed them, but to no avail. Drivers of the Nissan NV200 taxis – which were also exhibited at the New York auto show -- had to keep apologizing to people hailing them, telling them that their units are not real taxis, so they can’t pick them up. The last straw came…
  • GM plans $12B investment in China from 2014 to 2017

    andrew@4wheelsnews.com
    24 Apr 2014 | 3:14 am
    General Motors has disclosed plans to invest $12 billion China by 2017 and expand capacity 65 percent by 2020. The plan will initially cover the expansion of the carmaker’s SUV, crossover and luxury car offerings -- three segments that GM expects to continue to grow. GM China President Matt Tsien said that they are investing wisely and accelerating their vehicle development and production capacity to keep pace with the market demand. GM’s move comes as the Chinese auto industry is seen to slow down below 10 percent in coming years, from 15 percent in 2013. According to IHS…
  • Ford CEO said new for-China Escort sedan could go global

    Ford Motor Co. chief executive Alan Mulally said the newly unveiled Escort compact sedan developed for the Chinese market could go global and even arrive in the United States in the future. The Escort was developed by Ford’s Asia-Pacific r&d team for China. It is underpinned by the Focus platform but is roomier and carries a distinct styling from the Focus and Fusion. According to Mulally, the Escort might be offered to other markets. He remarked that the Escort could someday fill a new price point for the carmaker in the US. He remarked that while Ford already has a solid small and…
  • NHTSA closed probe into steering issue in 335,000 Saturn Ions

    andrew@4wheelsnews.com
    24 Apr 2014 | 1:25 am
    The United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has closed a four-year investigation into 335,000 Saturn Ions (MY 2004-2007) after General Motors recalled them in March. The agency initially opened a preliminary evaluation of the power steering issue in January 2010. The Ion was among the 1.5 million cars that GM recalled on March 31 for potential loss of power steering. The cars are also part of an unrelated recall of faulty ignition switches tied to at least 13 deaths. When the power-steering recall was announced, GM global vehicle safety chief Jeff Boyer admitted that the…
  • Alecta rejects bid by Volkswagen Group to buy out Scania

    andrew@4wheelsnews.com
    24 Apr 2014 | 12:22 am
    Volkswagen Group’s bid to buy out the rest of Scania has encountered a hurdle after Alecta, the truck-maker’s third-largest shareholder, declined the offer as the proposed price is too low. VW is bidding SEK200 ($30.4) a share, or a total of EUR6.7 billion ($9.3 billion) for the stake in Scania it currently does not own. VW – which controls 62.6 percent of Scania's capital via direct and indirect holdings – wants to completely acquire the truck-maker to press on closer collaboration between the Swedish company and MAN, which VW also controls. Swedish pension…

  • Coffee Break: Pastor Maldonado Forgets He's Driving An F1 Car

    Andrew Evans
    20 Apr 2014 | 5:50 pm
    Pastor Maldonado does not have a good record in F1. Nicknamed "Crashtor", he's had contact with just about every driver on the grid and has set a record for the most number of grid slot penalties in a single season for any driver. He even once crashed an F1 car during a solo demonstration run on the streets of Caracas. The move from a poor Williams team to an up-and-coming Lotus outfit has backfired dramatically too, as rule changes have pushed his old team up to the podium while he continues to tour round until retirement ahead of only the newest teams.

  • Next Generation MX-5 Laid Bare

    Andrew Evans
    18 Apr 2014 | 4:51 am
    While at first glance this may appear to be some ultra-hardcore competitor for the Ariel Atom, it is in fact the underpinnings and powertrain of the next generation of Mazda MX-5. As the world's best selling, 2 seater, convertible sportscar, this next model has an awful lot to live up to and, at the moment, the signs are good. Mazda is invoking the "SkyActiv" ethos for the chassis at least, as it has done for every new model since the CX-5 in 2012. This should help the MX-5 reach a targeted weight at or below the sub-ton Mk1 MX-5, which in turn will enable Mazda to use smaller,…

  • Coffee Break: Flat Out In The Porsche 918 Spyder

    Antony Ingram
    15 Apr 2014 | 11:35 pm
    There are far, far better reasons to buy Porsche's 918 Spyder supercar than its ability to sneak around on electric power. But even so, there's something very compelling about an 887-horsepower car that can also take you further and faster in emissions-free city driving than a Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid. According to Porsche, the 918 Spyder will go 18 miles on its battery - the plug-in Prius achieves nearer 15 miles. You only get to experience electric power for the briefest of moments in Porsche's new video, but to be far the rest of the video is much more interesting (and a…

Hopefully, the oil rich Sheikhs, now seemed getting cautious on the said note, so at least for the namesake, the Dubai Roadster that had appeared in images on internet could be found posing as a super model of the oil rich land. Apparently, to be introduced at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show, it remains a creative work of an unnamed Emirati racer. Dubai Roadster is designed perfect on aerodynamics, and got those glamorous designing cues even after standing tall on the…

    Honda compact SUV is the most appreciated term in the Indian automotive fraternity. And to make it sound more lucrative, a magazine from Japan revealed the beans that carmaker is planning a compact SUV based on Brio platform designated for the Indian market. However, the Honda Vezel, which was launched in number of countries months back, was anticipated for India too, but due to its all new structure and the other technical gimmicks that may have caught the Honda in a jiff for years to roll it out, had compelled it to resort with a new product that could be compatibly made on the platforms of…

  • Jeep Wrangler Chinese Copy BAIC B40 Launched at Beijing Auto Show 2014

Needed not to mention, how cool Chinese are in copying the world products, where they hadn’t left the automobiles even. To be a bit precise, the BJ40 was actually announced in 2009 and was presented in flesh at the 2010 Shanghai Auto Show, but this year’s Beijing Auto Show marks its market launch. Hopefully, on looks, it may pose as the strong replica to the Jeep Wrangler, but the naturally-aspirated 2.4-liter four-cylinder under…

    Mike
    19 Apr 2014 | 12:30 am
    by Mike - My latest gripe about the way collector cars are described by some sellers is the over use of the word "concours" and sometimes "Pebble Beach quality". The definition of "concours" From the Dictionary, an exhibition or contest, esp. a parade of vintage or classic motor vehicles in which prizes are awarded for those in the best original condition.

It is all a matter of opinion, but looking at it from an objective point of view, the answer is probably not. There may be a handful of British cars out there that each of us like more than the Mini, but in terms of worldwide association with Britain, the Mini surely must be the clear winner. There are other cars which came into being in the sixties which are also iconic as British cars from that decade, such as the Jaguar E Type or the Triumph Spitfire. But it is…

    Last week I had a marketing conference to attend in Las Vegas so since again I made it to the Quad casino.(formerly the Imperial Palace casino) We drove up from Phoenix and I love passing through the little towns of Wikiup and Kingman. You can really feel like you are lost in time while driving. Some of the roads suck but it is still a pleasurable ride. There is a Route 66 museum in Kingman but we didn’t have time to stop. A few miles north of the Wikiup trading post we saw about 4 or 5 old Cadillacs sitting in someones front yard just baking in the sun. They need to be rescued! My time…

    Last night I had the honor of going to the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale Arizona. It is the second time going for me and first time bringing a camera. Last year their website said no cameras so I only had my IPad with me. A few hours before going I hit them up on Twitter and they gave me permission to bring a camera. I guess they eased up on the rule of no cameras. Below is the new Cadillac ELR which my girlfriend Debbie and her daughter Liz liked. You can see them showing me where it plugs in. Of course they had the new 2014 Cadillac CTS VSport Twin Turbo on hand. If you have never…

While it’s true that World Series of Poker or World Poker Tour pots can sometimes reach beyond the hundred thousands (or even the millions, though that’s much rarer), winnings are more often than not closer to the $50,000 mark.

It wasn’t confirmed whether Yamaha will mass-produce these bikes and hence it was speculated that these are just concepts. However, the Japanese manufacturer has now confirmed that both these machines will be launched by 2016. These motorcycles are fully electric and Yamaha has incorporated some nice futuristic styling elements on both of them. Such designs really appeal to the youth and the company must surely be having high expectations from both these products. By…

    The difference between buying a car and buying a Porsche is; well! you buy a Porsche. You don’t just pay for the four wheels and everything that comes on top of it, but also the engineering prowess, rich legacy, brand, heritage and eventually the snob value that comes along with it. However, while some manufacturers may succumb to changing markets conditions, it is the exotic makers that get the chance to take pride and sell what they are known to make. However, Porsche has chosen to steer away from the brand’s belief with 6-cylinders and has introduced the new Macan SUV with a new…

    Ford in Australia is, unfortunately, dying.  It has received a mortal wound and is going through the process of twitching and groaning before ultimately giving up the ghost, more’s the pity.  However, the same can’t be said of Ford in other parts of the world.  So to cheer all my fellow Ford fans up, here’s a bit of info about one of the oldest and possibly largest Ford factories: the Ford River Rouge Complex in Detroit, founded in 1917, which started manufacturing Model Ts since the late 1920s and still at work churning out Fords today.

    When it comes to public holidays, they’re much more visible when it comes to a police presence and news of fatal accidents. Yet there’s no real reason as to why these should be, as there are no real reasons why people should die on the roads. At the time of writing there’s been close to ten lives lost, large single vehicle and single person crashes. Yet, on a 600 kilometre round trip to north on Newcastle, NSW, covering Good Friday and Saturday, the amount of truly and utterly pathetic, dangerous driving I witnessed begs the question of why weren’t there more crashes?
  • Classic Cars: Jaguar E-Type.

    Dave Conole
    17 Apr 2014 | 2:08 am
    In the automotive world it’s not uncommon to have a design regarded as a classic. Ferrari’s 248, Holden’s 48-215, Ford’s GT40, Aston Martin’s DB5 and Jaguar’s evergreen E-Type. Enzo Ferrari called the E-Type “the most beautiful car ever made.” Controversial due to its phallic styling, especially when painted red, its immensely long bonnet in comparison to its compact cabin gives it proportions at odds to its handling. A svelte, curvaceous car, it’s still regarded as outstandingly beautiful over fifty years later. Spread over three distinct…

There was no better proving ground than the hallowed tarmac of Brands Hatch in Kent. The Indy circuit provides a sub-50 second thrash of a lap, demanding both high speed and perfect handling. It will come as no surprise (based on the monumental BTCC-based output I am prone to) that this championship has and probably will always be my favourite motor sport series.

    The revival of a brand has not always proven to be so smooth and so substantial as that of Dacia. The Duster is the clearest example of the expression affordable but not cheap. Besides, we must not forget that this is a model by Renault, since in several markets it is sold with the logo of this brand. The inflated dome, high ground clearance and thick sills, always gave the image of a wild beast. Wide track, short overhangs and roof rails shout from afar that is unconventional. In the latest development, the Duster has gained low air intake and and a more impressive mask. All versions have…

    22 Apr 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Suburbia might be the land of the crossover, but if one is to be king in such a realm, they require a vehicle that is larger and sits taller. As such, despite seldom using its V8 engine or 4×4 capabilities, the full-size SUV rules the road in American neighborhoods– but there is a downside. If you are an SUV owner, you may have to add “paying more for parking” to the list of setbacks, which include “actually finding parking,” and “paying a princely sum to fill the tank.” According to MarketWatch, parking garages are already charging larger vehicles for the privilege of…
  • Johammer J1 Electric Motorcycle is a Wildly Futuristic Way to Ride

    George Kennedy
    22 Apr 2014 | 11:00 am
    We’re gonna keep the green theme rolling today, in more way than one. There is an argument from the motorcycle community, that riding a hog is less piggish on gas. It’s true that motorcycles are far more efficient than cars, but what is more efficient than a motorcycle? An electric motorcycle, of course. The Johammer J1 doesn’t look like a typical motorcycle, because it is far from the norm. It not only incorporates an electric powertrain, but some cool new digital features that stretch the bike’s cool factor. RELATED: See images of the 2014 Tesla Motorcycle Concept by Marco de Toma…
  • Ford to Offer Performance Pack for 4-Cylinder Mustang?

    George Kennedy
    22 Apr 2014 | 10:00 am
    It’s Earth Day, which means we have efficiency and green tech on the mind, but that doesn’t mean that the cars have to be boring. Advancements in drivetrains have meant that performance enthusiasts (facing ever-tightening fuel economy regulations) can have their high-speed cake and eat it too. The latest example of this comes from the new four-cylinder Ford Mustang. In the past, non-V8 Mustangs were regarded as pretenders, or derided as “secretary cars.” (That’s not fair to secretaries. You don’t know if they autocross or not on weekends). But the previous generation of the…

    New-start coachbuilder David Brown Automotive has revealed the price of its Jaguar XKR-based Speedback GT. Excluding local taxes, the retro-styled grand tourer is going to cost a whopping £495,000 (around €601,650 or US $831,200 at current exchange rates). To get a sense of how high that figure is, a similar amount would buy two Rolls-Royce Wraiths or five Jaguar XKR-S Coupés. Denouncing such a bold pricing strategy as ridiculous would be very easy, but ultimately the market is going to decide whether it’s valid or not. Presumably the company’s research has determined that there are…

  • Morgan Plus 8 Speedster limited edition

    18 Apr 2014 | 3:06 pm
    Morgan is launching the Plus 8 Speedster to help celebrate 100 years of production at its Pickersleigh Road factory in Malvern. Built around a bonded and riveted aluminium chassis, the new model features the same BMW-sourced 362 bhp (270 kW / 367 PS) 4.8 litre V8 engine that’s used in a regular Plus 8. Stripped-back bodywork has improved the car’s power to weight ratio, though. As a result, the Speedster will accelerate from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.2 seconds, making it 0.3 of a second quicker than the standard Plus 8. However, top speed is limited to 148 mph (238 km/h), which is actually…

    Probably everyone knows that the Omega Speedmaster Professional is the Moonwatch. At the time of its introduction in 1957 however, it was basically meant as a chronograph watch for people involved in sports such as car racing and motorsports. When Buzz Aldrin set foot on the Moon in 1969 wearing a Speedmaster Professional, Omega was already creating a new variation of the Speedmaster Professional – the Omega Speedmaster Professional Mark II. This Mark II model consisted of two variations: one with a black dial similar to the one of the regular Speedmaster Professional, and one with a…

Porsche is already pumping out its 991-generation 911 models including the Turbo, but the team at Vorsteiner is still having all sorts of fun with the second-generation 997 911 Turbos. It’s amazing what a few aerodynamic upgrades and a new set of forged wheels can do for a car, and the Vorsteiner Porsche 911 Turbo V-RT is the perfect example. The classic shape of the 911 Turbo gets a bit more aggressive with the new Vorsteiner V-RT front bumper. This gives the face of the supercar a more commanding presence and also incorporates a new set…

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…

It was called ‘Questions & Answers for automobile students and mechanics’. Here are 10 questions: 1) in relation to the engine, what is the ‘two to one’ shaft? 2) what practical use is a ‘hydrometer’ to a touring driver when it comes to the issue of fuel quality? 3) What are the principles of a…

    Toyota announced that there is a Seat belt recall of FJ Cruiser models from 2007 to 2013. Unfortunately for owners of these cars, even with the issue discovered, Toyota is still working on how to actually fix the issue. The problem stems from a design oversight, Toyota mounted the seat belts for the driver on the rear door of the vehicle. The reason they did this was because the FJ Cruiser doesn’t have a B-Pillar, and there was virtually no other place to put the seat belt. It’s an open design and because of this when the rear door is slammed closed it is slowly cracking the anchor of the…

    At the end of March there was a bit of buzz about the Tesla Model E, but since then the activity has died down.  Elon Musk announced the Model E give some projections and left it at that.  Now we have to wait for what leaks we can get, when we can get them.  But so far the specs look promising.You can expect the Model E to arrive in 2016, shortly after the release of its much larger brother the Model X (a cross-over SUV).  What is known so far about the E is that it will be about 20% shorter in length than the S, have about half the battery capacity (48 kWh), and cost less…

    It's not new, it's long been an idea that has been considered by many vehicle manufacturers, to use a camera rather than a mirror.  But unlike other proposals to eliminate the physical rear view mirror, Nissan is merely proposing an added rear view camera.Nissan is at the top of the game when it comes to cameras.  They've pioneered the Birds-Eye view around the vehicle for full perimeter awareness.  So when it comes to proposing the idea for a simple rear view, it's definitely nothing new.  But who's to say that you can't just toss out the physical mirror for a digital…

Here are some wet weather driving tips to keep you safe long after all of the snow has melted. Skidding When the roads are wet, it’s harder for your tires to get traction.

    There was a time when I thought the Viper was really cool and that was in 1999 when they had the GTS model. That car looked so incredible, there was nothing like it at the time, it almost took you by surprise it was a Dodge. Then came the following generation Dodge Viper SRT, and that one I didn’t care for because I kept reading the C6 Z06 Corvette was faster. The problem was that generation never made any advances from the GTS model except for exterior styling. It still didn’t have any type of traction control, there was no comfort driving it, and the interior didn’t have any…

  • GM Recalls LaCrosse and SRX For a Transmission Software Issue

    31 Mar 2014 | 5:00 pm
    General Motors recalled about 27,000 vehicles due to a software issue in the transmission of the 2013 Buick LaCrosse and Cadillac SRX. The Buick’s made from April 25, 2012 through March 6, 2013 and Cadillac’s produced May 29, 2012 through Feb. 18, 2013 are effected.The technical issue is that the transmission sometimes involuntarily shifts into sport mode.

Non the less they are being proactive, urging drivers to come in and…
  • Toyota FJ Cruiser Has Seat Belt Defect, Toyota still working on Remedy

    31 Mar 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Toyota announced that there is a Seat belt recall of FJ Cruiser models from 2007 to 2013. Unfortunately for owners of these cars, even with the issue discovered, Toyota is still working on how to actually fix the issue. The problem stems from a design oversight, Toyota mounted the seat belts for the driver on the rear door of the vehicle. The reason they did this was because the FJ Cruiser doesn’t have a B-Pillar, and there was virtually no other place to put the seat belt. It’s an open design and because of this when the rear door is slammed closed it is slowly cracking the anchor of the…

Kinetosis occurs when the balance systems of your inner ear conflict with what you see in the world around you. For example, a bumpy car journey involves seeing the stationary interior of the car at the same time as feeling like you’re moving around. Or, when you can SEE motion but can’t actually feel…

    David
    31 Mar 2014 | 2:31 pm
    Following claims that some Jeep models were igniting fires, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) launched an investigation early this month. This is an exaggeration. The investigation affected an estimated 2.7 million vehicles: 1993-2004 Grand Cherokee and 2002-2007 Liberty models. Initially, parent company Chrysler refused a voluntary recall of the affected vehicles. They stated that the two models in question met or exceeded all safety standards at the time they were built in their respective classes, and that NHTSA’s findings were “based on an incomplete analysis…

  • Mazda Recalling Cars Due to Danger From Insect

    Dan White
    4 Apr 2014 | 3:56 pm
    AP – Mazda is recalling 42,000 Mazda6 cars in the U.S. because spiders can weave a web in a vent hose and cause the fuel tank to crack. The recall involves cars from the 2010 through 2012 model years equipped with 2.5-liter engines. The yellow sac spider, which is attracted to hydrocarbons, builds webs that cause pressure to build in the fuel tank. That increases the risk of fuel leaks and fire. Mazda recalled cars in 2011 for the same problem. It put covers on the vent line, but has found spiders can get past them. Mazda will update the cars’ software for free beginning this…

    You’re probably aware that fatigued driving isn’t the best decision, but did you know that it could just as — or more — fatal than drunk driving? How could anyone know? That’s right, AAA reported that about 17 percent of fatal accidents are caused by drowsy drivers. While it is more difficult for police to determine sleepiness as a cause for an accident than drunk driving, there are certain road clues that lead to that conclusion. For example, drivers who fall asleep tend to be in the car alone, drive into barriers instead of other cars, and show no attempt to…

    Motor or engine mounts act as a buffer to protect the chassis from engine vibrations and to keep you and your passengers undisturbed by the movements.  Without engine mounts, the strong vibrations would eventually loosen bolts and belts, cause damage to electrical connections and possibly damage the body of your vehicle.  To avoid these problems motor mounts were designed to help keep lateral movement from the engine at a minimum. The traditional motor mount is made up of metal and hard rubber.  The metal plates are used to secure the engine to the chassis while the rubber is in place to…

  • How to Buy a Fire Truck

    Bilal Sajjad
    6 Mar 2014 | 4:16 am
    City, county or volunteer fire departments in need of equipment clearly want to purchase quality items at affordable prices that fit the budget of the department. Used or refurbished fire trucks are a good choice for many of these places because they can save money while still providing the department with a quality truck to assist them in fighting fires. There’s nothing wrong with most of the used fire trucks; they are simply those no longer needed by other stations. They make a great choice for a budget without sacrificing quality and longevity. Why Buy Used? Just because a fire truck has…

  • Things We’d Like To See At Car Dealerships

    Bilal Amjad
    23 Apr 2014 | 6:55 am
    I’ve been to a fair few different car dealers in my life and there is typically no consistency with any of them, save for the fact that they have cars and salespeople to sell them. Some sell new cars, some sell used cars, and there are many that sell both new and used ones! But there are some things that put me off buying from many car dealers, and from what I’ve read online plus the car buying experiences my friends, family members and work colleagues have told me about, it seems that I’m not the only person with certain pet hates about car dealers. I thought I would take this…

    The BMW 3 series has been on our roads for a long time, but as it’s still in production, the newer models have been improved considerably. In the past, this was marketed strictly as a businessman’s car, but thanks to lots of alterations and a significant amount of time spent on bringing the design up to date, it now serves perfectly as a family car too. At the end of the day, whether or not you agree is down to your own personal opinion, but please at least take the time to read through the rest of this review before making your mind up. According to Jardine Motors the 3 series is selling…

    Fuel efficient vehicles for consumers are far from a new concept in the United States, but some automakers are giving them a more prominent place in their lineups to respond to increasing demand. And thanks to the re-emergence of a federal auto financing plan, it appears that those manufacturers will have more help doing so in the near future. Earlier this week, the Obama administration announced it would be continuing the Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan Program, which aims to provide financing for manufacturers of cars with advanced fuel efficient technology.

  • How Potholes Can Damage your Vehicle

    This winter was one of the longest, coldest, snowiest winters in recent memory. Spring felt like it would never come.  But this week, with temperatures a balmy 70 degrees, it looks like spring is finally here! Also here, unfortunately, is a very real reminder of the winter of 2014: potholes. Potholes are irregular, bowl-shaped holes in the asphalt layer of roads caused by the freeze, thaw, freeze cycle. (That just about tells the whole story of January and February here in Philadelphia and across the country.) Potholes are more prevalent this year than ever before.  By mid – March,…

    One more thing regarding underinsured motorist coverage:  if you are in an accident and even if the other driver is deemed 100% responsible, you might be stuck paying out of pocket if the other driver is under – insured.   Here is an example of what could happen based on the experience of one of our recent customers.

  • Do I Need Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage?

    Melissa Tevere
    12 Feb 2014 | 10:09 am
    In an effort to save money, especially in difficult financial times, you might consider cutting back by not buying uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. If everybody has to have insurance, what is the point? It is true that all states (except New Hampshire – not surprising – their state motto is “Live Free or Die”) require drivers to have basic insurance coverage. But the fact is that 1 in 7 drivers are ignoring the law and driving without basic coverage. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist insurance covers two types of losses – bodily injury and property damage. Bodily injury…

It wasn't the first electric or hybrid car available in the U.S; Honda introduced the Insight seven months earlier but in limited supply. But the Toyota Prius was the first mass-produced…
