One of the highlights is an all-new regenerative braking system, which GM’s Mark Reuss, says is “more refined than the system on the ELR.” Also, if you pay attention to the video they use to demo the braking…

    Remember the memorable Alfa Romeo 159 that really melted our hearts everytime a roar under the hood would give the signal of a quick burnout? Well, good news from the Italian carmaker, as the model will receive a successor, which is set for 2015.

  • Report: Order books for the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe to open in September 2015

    admin
    19 Dec 2014 | 8:39 am
    A Mercedes-Benz enthusiast site from Germany reports Stuttgart should be opening the order books for the next-generation C-Class Coupe in September of 2015, more than a year after the reveal of the sedan. The new C-Class Coupe is supposedly internally referred to as the C205 and is expected to premiere at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show. Deliveries should follow sometime in December of 2015. Much like the sedan, the C-Class Coupe should receive the same engines as the sedan and a convertible may follow in 2016 to make sure Mercedes stays competitive with the BMW 4-Series.

    Some rumors in the past suggested that a new Alfa Romeo Spider was going to be born, being based off of the all-new 2016 Mazda Miata MX-5. But now, apparently that’s in the can, according to CAR in the UK. However, the collaboration overall between Mazda and Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles isn’t all over either as Mazda’s Miata will instead be used as a new Fiat Spider, which is in line with past reports of Mazda and Fiat announcing a joint sports car project in May of 2012. According to CAR, who spoke with Alfa Romeo’s brand head, Harald Wester, the Mazda Miata/Fiat…

  • Report: Subaru could phase out six-cylinder engines

    admin
    19 Dec 2014 | 5:41 am
    It seems Subaru might be serious about downsizing their engines to keep up with demands for fuel economy, and this might mean retiring their flat-six from duty altogether. CarAdvice in Australia spoke to Yoichi Hori, a Subaru engineer, who claims six-cylinder engine demand is decreasing throughout the world and companies are relying more on small turbocharged motors or hybrid tech. He does have a point, but six-cylinder engines aren’t exactly disappearing. Either way, Subaru could just drop theirs in favor of some new 2.0L turbocharged boxer-fours. Does this mean we could actually see a…

    The Truth About Cars

  • Editorial: Cuba And The Axis Of Emerging Markets

    19 Dec 2014 | 7:54 am
    A year ago, TTAC broke news of back channel overtures being made towards Iran on behalf of General Motors. A number of Chevrolet Camaro Convertibles made their way to Iran via a complicated logistics network and the importations were of dubious legality. But the event highlighted a sentiment in the auto industry that few are willing to openly discuss: the BRIC countries, once the darlings of the emerging markets, have already been exhausted. The search for new markets is on, and that means places like Africa and Iran. And Cuba could be next. While the French auto makers have established foot…

    Chinese Internet overlord Baidu is buying a major stake into everyone’s favorite transportation network company, Uber. According to CNBC, neither company stated how much the stake cost Baidu, nor how large the stake is. The tech company joins Google and Goldman Sachs in the big-name-investor group backing the TNC, which is currently valued at $40 billion. As for what will happen as a result of this pairing, Baidu wants to help Uber gain a foothold into the Chinese car-hailing app market — expected to jump to 45 million users next year, from 18 million in 2013 — which is…

Also: That’s a photo shot by one of my relatives back in Louisville, Ky., where some stations are pumping gas for as low as $1.96/gallon. Automotive News reports that by January 1, 2015, gasoline could be selling for as much as $2.25 to $2.40 nationally, a seasonal low not seen since 2008. The current average is down from a peak of $3.69 in April, hitting below $2.50 for the first time since October 2009.

    Despite massive year-over-year improvements, the Kia Sedona continues to be a relatively low-volume player in America’s minivan segment. But are the gains made by the Kia significant enough to make life difficult for the top four? Compared with November 2013, Sedona volume jumped 578% last month as a follow-up to October’s 251% gain. Through the first three-quarters of 2014, Kia USA had been selling fewer than 630 Sedonas per month. 2376 were sold in October; 3538 in November. The van’s market share through nine months was a paltry 1.3% as even the Mazda 5 and Nissan Quest were easily…

    It costs $233,509, and it’s genuinely worth the money. That’s the first thing I want you to know about the Ferrari 458 Italia. The second thing is that, once again, I’m driving the wrong 458 for the job. Ferrari supplied Road&Track with the 458 Speciale for Performance Car Of The Year. This no-radio, flat-carbon-fiber-interior-door-panels, bloody-ear-exhaust variant was an absolute revelation around a track or down a fast two-lane. Yet nobody wanted to actually drive it on the freeway until I showed up and volunteered to do it. I promptly used it in an attempt to pick…

  • Chrysler Recalls 2.9 Million U.S. Vehicles With Takata Airbags

    Robert Sorokanich
    19 Dec 2014 | 3:27 pm
    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced today that it will vastly expand its recall of older Dodge, Chrysler, and Mitsubishi vehicles to replace driver’s-side airbags manufactured by disgraced auto supplier Takata. The expanded recall affects an estimated 3.3 million vehicles built between 2004 and 2007, 2.9 million of which are in the U.S. See below for the full list of affected models. In a statement, the automaker says that neither FCA US nor Takata has identified any defects in the airbags used in the newly recalled vehicles, despite conducting “more than 1,000 laboratory…
  • Would You Pay $350k-$475k for an Audi Sport Quattro?

    Alex Kierstein
    19 Dec 2014 | 2:57 pm
    In 1984, a road-legal car capable of a 4.8-second sprint to 60 mph that could also turn and stop, and was almost practical, sounded like vaporware to most people. It wasn’t: the Sport Quattro, a shortened and improved ur-Quattro, was that car. Not that many people knew about it—it was staggeringly expensive and had virtually none of the cachet of, say, a Porsche 911 Turbo or cars of that ilk in the status-obsessed 1980s. Also, frankly, it was a bit ugly to contemporary eyes. Thankfully we humans are equipped with hindsight, and that means that as Audi has emerged as a full-bore…

But those who’d like a dose of sinister with their size—some ferocity with their fluff, if you will—have historically been forced over to the rear-drive side of the fence (we refuse to believe that the Taurus SHO is sinister), or they’ve trekked to Jackie’s House of Darkened Accessories in an attempt to mute the shiny happiness of their rides. “No more!” say the men working under the auspices of Louis Chevrolet.
  • Dodge Recalls Model Year 2005 Ram Pickups for Potential Axle Lock-Up

    19 Dec 2014 | 2:08 pm
    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced today that it will recall more than 250,000 Dodge Ram 1500 pickups in the U.S. for a problem that can cause the rear axle to lock up at speed. The issue is limited to model year 2005 trucks built between January 2004 and August 2005. The problem stems from a rear-axle pinion nut that can work its way loose, potentially causing the rear axle to lock up without warning. FCA reports that three accidents and one injury are potentially related to the issue. NHTSA launched an investigation in June after receiving 15 incident complaints, seven of which happened…

    Someday soon, passenger vehicles will use technology to see far down the road. And that vision of the future is already here for fleet operators using Scania trucks that currently employ a technology called electronic horizon, or eHorizon, to save fuel and reduce emissions as well as accidents. At the 2015 CES next month, automotive supplier Continental will show how its enhanced version of the technology can be applied to cars. “In principle, eHorizon uses map data to give vehicle electronics a glimpse into the future,” said Helmut Matschi, a member of Continental’s executive board and…

    Ford Sync was a groundbreaking technology when it was introduced in 2007, and for several reasons. It was the first infotainment system that was largely software-based, meaning it could be easily updated and allowed owners to add new features after they’d purchased a vehicle. It was also the first infotainment system primarily designed to integrate with portable devices. And it was the first time an automaker introduced a new high-profile feature across its entire model line instead of releasing it on high-end vehicles and then letting it trickle down. Subsequently Sync was a huge…

  • Making Robot Cars More Human

    Doug Newcomb
    8 Dec 2014 | 5:24 pm
    To better avoid accidents, autonomous cars can do things that human drivers can’t. Their eyes—or rather sensors and software—never leave the road to change a radio station or glance over at a passenger. They can see through fog or other inclement weather and sense a stalled car or other hazard ahead and take appropriate action. But as automated technology progresses and is road-tested, developers are finding that there are advantages human drivers have that machines don’t, and this lack of humanness may be a liability when it comes to the adoption of the self-driving cars.

With that came popular apps for streaming music such as Pandora and Spotify, and local search such as Google and Yelp. But accessing apps in the car—where your attention should be focused on driving and not a portable device or even on an in-dash screen for a long time—is totally different and potentially distracting. Judging from two recent announcements, perhaps the next wave will rely on content aggregation to simply deliver what drivers want, without having to…

    It's gorgeous and it's relatively well-priced, but the CLA does have some issues, including an engine that gets annoyingly rumbly at lower speeds. Find out more in my review over at Autofocus.

    Christian Stampfer
    16 Dec 2014 | 9:01 pm
    DÜSSELDORF – The first generation of the BMW 1 Series was introduced by BMW in 2004 and aimed for customers looking for a sporty car in the compact class. The 1er also replaced the not overly successful BMW 3 Series Compact as BMW’s entry model. Today, the BMW 1 Series is available in its second generation, internally code-named F20. While the first generation was available in four different models (three- and five door hatchbacks, coupe and convertible), the current generation is available only as three or five door hatchbacks. The coupe and convertible models moved up in the product…
  • Diesel Fails to Reflect Gasoline’s 40% Drop, But Lower Prices Expected in 2015

    Jonathan Spira
    12 Dec 2014 | 8:04 am
    While the price of gasoline at the pump has dropped roughly 40% since June of this year, the price of diesel fuel is seemingly unchanged. The average price for a gallon of gasoline across the nation was $2.68 as of Monday and prices have continued to slide through the week, while the average price for a gallon of diesel fuel remains stubbornly higher at $3.53. The average price for gasoline dropped by roughly ten cents from the preceding week, it is down 59 cents over the past year, while diesel only fell by seven cents week over week and only dropped 34 cents in the past year.

Ally Financial and Wells Fargo Dealer Services, two of the nation’s largest auto lenders, say growing competition has them ready to sacrifice market share to protect profits. Both companies lead segments of the market, according to Experian Automotive. Ally Financial was No. 1 in combined U.S. new- and used-vehicle loan originations in the third quarter of 2014.

    Have you ever dreamed about climbing a ski mountain in a Jeep? I know I have. The thought of scaling peaks in a 4×4 has crossed my mind countlessly over the years while riding on the chairlift. So when BF Goodrich asked if I might be interested in a hands-on demo of their their brand new All-Terrain T/A KO2s at Hunter Mountain on a tricked out Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, I jumped on the opportunity. This was not an ordinary media junket. I didn’t need to get on a plane, dress up, or sit through a slide presentation. All I needed to do was gather up my cameras, drive Slambo up to…
  • How Much is My Junk Car Worth?

    13 Nov 2014 | 5:29 am
    If you’ve never had the need to get rid of a junk car, count yourself lucky. Dumping a clunker can be a real hassle. The trick is to minimize your financial loss without spending a huge amount of time, effort and expense. I’ve had to unload more than a few junkers over the years and it’s never been fun. For most consumers, junking a car is a losing proposition. But for entrepreneurs, there’s plenty of money to be made. Think about all of the print, TV, and radio advertisements you’ve endured for WeBuyAnyCar, for example. Their pervasive jingle is a highly-effective earworm. If they…

Valvoline sent a crew to shoot a day-in-the-life with me a few weeks back. They did an awesome job of capturing what drives me every day. We took a nice long ride in Slambo, heading out from Rancho Indebto all the way down through the Pinelands to Tuckerton, one of the towns on the Jersey Shore that was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. Progress Update: The first phase of work on Slambo continues. In the coming weeks,…
  • How Much Do You Spend on Gas Each Month?

    Do you keep track of much you spend on gasoline every month? What would you do with a spare twenty, fifty, or hundred dollars? Making some small changes can save a nice chunk of cash over time. The biggest change, of course, is switching from a gas sucking pig into something that’s more fuel efficient. But if you need to have a big truck or SUV, you need to have it. No arguments here. Everyone in America should have the choice of what they drive.

  • 2015 Ford F-150: 30 MPG Magic?

    mpg-o-editor
    7 Jun 2014 | 7:43 am
    The thought of a half-ton pickup truck achieving 30 miles per gallon (MPG) with a gasoline engine was unfathomable, just a few years ago. A 30 MPG rating for the 2015 Ford F-150 would be nothing short of remarkable. While the F-150′s gas mileage ratings have not been released for 2015, engineering leaps at Ford may have put that magic thirty within reach. The savings potential is based on three core technologies: lightweighting, displacement downsizing, and aerodynamics. The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America for years on end. A significant drop in the F150’s fuel…

    Before we begin, I have to clarify that this isn’t really my car in the sense that I own it. Another thing worth mentioning is that I have 3 uncles. To avoid confusion, MR2-driving uncle shall be known as Uncle J, his older brother shall be known as Uncle V and their sister’s husband –and former Chevrolet Astro owner- shall be Uncle D. An interesting proposition was bestowed upon me earlier in the year (May 2013): my family was to drive Uncle V’s new-ish Toyota 4Runner as part of our daily-drivers, with me being the main driver. This came to be for the following reasons: Grandpa’s…

    If one lived in California circa 1993 and wanted to rent a video, this is the type of scene one would find on the parking lot outside the Blockbuster… if you lived in the parallel universe of the Jack Slater movie franchise. In reality, the pic is from the movie Last Action Hero, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The movie deconstructs the action-movie genre that Schwarzenegger himself helped redefine, case in point the parking lot filled with glamorous beauties (and girls, too) as only an over-the-top movie can get away with.  The entire movie is full of great cars, but just from these…

    The Magnus Walker 'brand' continues to increase its reach. He's got t-shirts and hats, he's got everything from phone cases to brand new wheels. The Urban Outlaw now has a pair of 1:43 Schuco die cast models available for purchase that commemorate two of the best cars in his collection. His cars have become quite well known in the world of Porsche, and now you can have them on your office shelf to look at every day. The ubiquitous #277 1972 longhood has become synonymous with Magnus, so of course that one would be made available. Walker's 1968 911 R custom is probably one of the simplest and…

    17 Dec 2014 | 4:11 pm
    Back in September, one of Porsche's limited-to-918-units Spyder Hyper-Hybrids burned to the ground in a bizarre gas station fire. Today, we received reports that another of the insanely quick Spyders met its demise in China after colliding with a tree last night. Much like the fire, the images of the crash were captured on a passerby's cell phone camera and posted online to 'go viral'. Also in a similar fashion, not much is known about the crash, what caused it, or whether anyone was injured. The 918 has not garnered the kind of fear-induced respect that the Carrera GT's Racer-For-The-Street…

    Sometimes when a group of friends are around, especially when there is a video camera running, we humans are known to do some pretty dumb things. We would probably all describe ourselves as relatively responsible drivers, but be honest, we've all been 'hanging out with the guys' and done a burnout, a donut, or jumped some train tracks in our day. We were probably more susceptible to it in 'the good old days', but that peer pressure can still get under the skin of a full-blown adult. That may have been the case with this Cayenne owner.

    1971 was a sort of a watershed year for me; I had become involved with shooting for Panorama, and had done the events at Daytona and Sebring. I hadn’t ever been to Watkins Glen, but a good friend was to race his 911 L (on the same track with 917s!). Three of us flew up in a Cessna with another friend and I shot the race, though there was never a Pano story that year; an Alfa T33/3 won the sports car race, and the mighty McLarens took the honors the next day in the Can Am tussle, though the 917s were hot on their heels in both events, and Siffert’s third place in the Can Am foreshadowed…

Amongst all the other announcements Porsche confirmed their factory driver line-up for 2015. Of the 14 drivers from 2014, 13 were named. Conspicuously absent from any mention was Wolf Henzler. However, we know that Falken already announced he was back with them for 2015, we just weren't sure if it was as a Porsche factory driver.

    Photo by Flickr user sciondriver. Last week’s news piece about a ban on commercial vehicles longer than 30 feet on U.S. 129 in Blount County, Tennessee, really struck a nerve with readers, and it wasn’t long before the conversation turned to driver education. As someone with a passion for driving, a bit of racing experience, a few driver’s schools and countless laps at a variety of road courses under his belt, it’s a topic I feel rather strongly about, since driving is perhaps the most under-rated and over-estimated of modern skills. Blame it on modern cars, which have…

If you’ve been looking for just such a vehicle, here’s good news: at least one 1983 Malibu Classic sedan delivery exists, and it’s for sale on Hemmings.com. Power comes from a standard-issue 350 V-8, bolted to a three-speed automatic, which means that repair parts, when needed, should be easy to source.

    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist Stay smallish — or go bigger? That was the question GM product planners had to ponder when considering which way to go with the Chevy Colorado and its GMC-badged cousin, the Canyon (subject of this review). The previous Canyon/Colorado were still nominally almost-compact trucks … smaller than the Dodge Dakota (RIP), but not quite as small as a Ford Ranger (also RIP). The all-new Canyon/Colorado edges closer to Dakota-sized. That is, it is mid-sized now … officially. There are no compact trucks on the market anymore. I wonder whether GM…

    19 Dec 2014 | 8:56 am
    Once the entry-level Mercedes model in the U.S., the C-Class has now grown up and out of that role and is now a very adult car that looks and acts like a smaller version of the brand's S-Class flagship. Offered as a luxury two-door coupe and a four-door sedan, the C-Class takes on competitors such as the Cadillac ATS and CTS, the Audi A4 and A5...

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life If you own a premium label vehicle that’s more about ballin’ than haulin’, chances are Wald International makes a rather fly body kit for your ride. The Japanese company is known the world over for its VIP-flavored restyling parts for Mercedes-Benzes and many of the homegrown brands (particularly Toyota/Lexus and Nissan), but there are plenty of other nameplates represented in its catalog. Bentley is one such brand, and the new Black Bison kit for the current Continental GT looks the business. There’s a new front valence, rear bumper, side skirts,…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life G-Power produced many lustworthy E92 BMW M3s over the course of that model’s lifespan (and a little bit beyond). But the superstar BMW tuning shop has decided it’s time to move on to that sprightly super coupe’s renamed successor, the M4. And the result is, predictably, impressive. While the exterior appearance isn’t dramatically changed from stock (aside from a lower ride height attributable to a coilover kit and a set of 20” forged wheels from G-Power’s own Hurricane RR line), the powertrain is chock full of changes.

And when the first-gen FX crossover arrived, Infiniti proudly touted its “bionic cheetah” styling language. Frankly, we’re surprised the marque has never insisted that people refer…

    Fatalities from traffic accidents decreased 3.1 percent from 2012 to 2013, according to a traffic fatality report issued today by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In total, 32,719 Americans died in traffic accidents in 2013. That's down from 2012's 33,782 — a figure that's been adjusted since NHTSA released it more than a year ago. In 2013, about two-thirds of fatalities (21,132) were occupants in passenger vehicles; the balance comes largely from commercial-vehicle occupants, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians.

    It’s been a few years since the launch of the BMW X6, and the Bavarian automaker still seems to be the only brand capable of getting the sport utility coupe concept just right. And it hasn’t been from a lack of effort by other automakers–remember the Acura ZDX? Now with the addition of the X4, BMW seems to own this niche of the luxury market—until now. Mercedes has BMW’s X4 and X6 squarely in its sights with the launch of its all-new GLE Coupe.

  • 60,000 Classic American Cars, and Three Good Ones

    tgriffith
    19 Dec 2014 | 2:00 am
    The cars of Cuba are somewhat legendary in the United States, because the vehicles that roamed the roads there in the 1950s are the same ones being driven today. Since we’re not allowed to go there, very few of us have seen them in person, yet we know they exist. Does that mean American collectors should start salivating over the prospect of virtually untouched classics if Cuba and the U.S. become friends again? Probably not. The 1959 Cuban revolution essentially put an end to imports of American cars, so Cubans have had to make do for the last 55 years with what they had, or buy…

My car isn’t a place where someone would want to spend a lot of time, and I assume valet drivers try to find the closest parking spot and exit as quickly as possible, hoping the next customer will own something a little…

That’s not a bad sales month for a muscle car, and it’s about the range where the Chevy Camaro has held steady for the last year. November 2014 was an entirely different story, mostly because the all-new 2015 Mustang hit the market with full force. The result? Let’s just say that the newly redesigned pony car has been exceptionally well received. Almost 9,000 Mustangs were sold last month, which is nearly double the number of Camaros sold in the same month and more than triple the number Challengers…

    29 Nov 2014 | 11:40 am
    Image Source Inspired by the space race and radical rocket designs of the time, 1950s automakers dreamt up a series of boundary-pushing “cars of the future.” Today, these prototypes often look amusingly retro-futuristic, like something out of classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon The Jetsons or original ’60s sci-fi hit Star Trek. At the time, though, they were sleek, cutting-edge and ultra-modern. These concept cars were sometimes presented as atomic energy-powered, engineless prototypes for, despite the now-obvious dangers, this was how designers envisaged the future of motoring.

The result, a number of incredibly awesome new modes of transportation. The world would be so much cooler if this is how we got around.

    Fuel economy has now become the most significant concern of consumers as well as automakers across the globe. This can be attributed primarily to the increasing gas prices in international markets. In addition to this, governments are also pushing automakers to develop ‘green’ technologies to save the environment, which can only be achieved by producing vehicles with low carbon emissions. Compact cars have always been considered to possess better fuel economy than larger vehicles, but this is not always true. In fact, mid-sized cars may offer the same fuel economy as small cars if they…

But perhaps the ones that tend to capture our attention the most are the automotive recalls, which is understandable. After all, we might not all have children or pets, and we don’t all eat peanut butter, but every one of us has some kind of contact with an automobile on a daily basis, either as drivers, pedestrians, or passengers. Also, when people buy cars they expect them to be safe,…

  • Hennessey Venom F5

    8 Dec 2014 | 1:05 am
    Step aside Koenigsegg One:1, it looks like you’ve met your match. Car world, meet the Hennessey Venom F5, successor to the record breaking Venom GT. As if 270 mph and 0-200mph in 14.5 seconds wasn’t fast enough – according to Hennessey, the F5 will not only trump the top speed records of the GT but also the acceleration as well. This new breed of hypercar is all about one thing: Speed. Sticking to the traditional route of power train (as opposed to the hybrids such as the P1 and 918), the F5 will have a twin turbo V8 that could potentially boast up to or exceeding 1400bhp, all the…

    Would you believe us if we said Cadillac is going to compete head to head against purebreds Ferrari, McLaren, Mercedes and BMW? Nobody would normally, but looking at what Cadillac has revealed last week makes us think otherwise. The All American company has more than one trick up its sleeve, and aims to prove it once more on the track. After separating from its mother-company; GM, Cadillac now has the full control to potentially show us what they are made of by releasing this 600HP ATS-V.R. Yes you read it right, a 600 horsepower, 520 foot-pound of torque, track-ready monster that will go up…

    For over 2 decades, Christian von Koenigsegg has pushed the limits of designing hyper-cars, and his most recent masterpiece the Koenigsegg One:1 is a culmination of this experience. The Koenigsegg One:1 predecessor platform Koenigsegg Agera R wis by every standard, an engineering masterpiece, and a remarkable milestone for the company, but for Christian, it was not enough. Koenigsegg has kept doing what it’s best at; pushing the limits of design and materials engineering. Despite all doubting critics, in 2014, the company released this latest Sweedish monster which delivers a whopping…

  • Karting: Mick Junior Schumacher makes single seater debut

    18 Dec 2014 | 9:00 pm
    From GMM Michael Schumacher's son is taking his next steps in the wake of his fabled father. Racing under the protective pseudonym of 'Mick Junior', 15-year-old Schumacher has had a successful formative karting career to date. But Osterreich newspaper reports that in the last days, he has made his single seater debut with a day of 'secret testing' in a Formula 4 car at Valencia. "Mick is certainly talented," team boss Peter Mucke said, "but you cannot say absolutely that a good kart driver will be fast in a formula one car." He added: "It is no good only having a great name as a driver, you…
  • F1: Bernie Ecclestone would like the return of the South-African Grand Prix

    18 Dec 2014 | 9:00 pm
    Adapted from GMM The F1 Supremo is targeting a revival of the South African grand prix. "We're in the middle of trying to do something in South Africa," he said at Sochi, where he received a government honour. "We used to have a race there and it would be nice to get back there again, to that part of the world," he told the Russian news agency Ria Novosti.

    From GMM Pedro de la Rosa has refused to comment on whether he will be following his countryman and friend out of Ferrari. It is rumoured that, with Esteban Gutierrez and his Mexican backers arriving at Maranello to be 2015 reserve, Spaniard de la Rosa might return to McLaren to complement Fernando Alonso's new Honda-powered era. Pedro de la Rosa, 43 and a former long-time McLaren test driver, would also be yet another high-profile Ferrari departure as the beleaguered Maranello marque sweeps its old era clean.

Michael Schmidt, of the respected German trade magazine Auto Motor und Sport, said that although his proposal did not produce a "definitive result", the sport is now headed towards an all-new set of regulations for 2016. "The engines are to be louder, more powerful and cheaper," said Michael Schmidt on Friday. "The goal is 1000 horse power and a cost of 10 million euros per team. An expert group…

If I get a text, I have to pull my phone out to respond. Why do I need to read it on my wrist first? One time I can see the benefit of a smart watch is while driving. Your phone buzzes and your wrist displays the text or e-mail. No need to pull your phone out and risk a ticket or a wreck. Now lets take that scenario a little further.

    Few cars define a segment like the Porsche 911. The pedigree, the refinement, the image… it’s all there. But no car is unassailable, even Porsche’s flagship. That’s why Mercedes created the 2016 GT S, the supercar with a dual personality. It can be a 500-horsepower track weapon, or luxury highway cruiser, something to demolish lap times, or caress your backside. It’s got heaps of composites and aluminum, making it lighter than the SLS, while inside, there’s leather and other top-shelf luxury materials sitting astride bucket seats and the paddle shifters for a seven-speed dual…

  • Forge Universal Intercooler Range

    admin
    12 Dec 2014 | 4:13 pm
    Gloucestershire based Forge Motorsport has released details of its hand-finished range of universal intercoolers. This extensive selection of craftsman-built alloy components offers a vast choice of styles, sizes and end-tank designs, making it the perfect resource for any tuners, car-builders or race teams looking to manage heat on any forced-induction car. Forced induction (compression of inlet air) produces heat. Heat can reduce power thus negating some of the benefits of forced induction in the first place. By incorporating an intercooler between the compressor and the plenum chamber, one…
  • Forge Universal Carbon Airbox

    2 Dec 2014 | 3:17 pm
    This smart, compact airbox from Forge motorsport ticks a lot of boxes for those looking to improve the performance and sound of their car’s intake system, without falling foul of the dreaded ‘heat soak’ problem that can affect open induction set-ups. Many enthusiasts like to add a performance intake to their car. Not only do you get a great improvement in sound, but if mounted in the right place, a larger filter can increase airflow into the intake. All too often though, filters will end up drawing in warm under-bonnet air circulating around the engine bay, so while they more flow more…

    Forge Motorsport has released an innovative new Twintercooler kit for the Golf GTI Mk7. Drawing heavily on its motorsport preparation experience, particularly in arenas like Time Attack, where horsepower and engine temperature statistics wouldn’t look out of place in an F1 paddock, Forge has created an innovative alloy twin intercooler core set-up to increase the surface area of its hand-finished cores, whilst allowing them to mount discreetly in their stock positions. Although it’s easy to make a dining-table sized ‘cooler that would do the same job, the design team felt that if…

    25 Nov 2014 | 7:54 pm
    Esteemed Audi tuner 034 Motorsport reached out to me recently with an exciting offer to review their all-new B8 Transmission Mount Insert which fits the B8 A4/S4, A5/S5/RS5, and Q5/SQ5, so I had my friend and fellow San Diego Audi Club (SDAC) member Marco Santos install it and give us his thoughts. Marco owns a 2012 Audi S4 with DSG (pictured above and throughout) that has a nice list of mods, and is no stranger to performance driving, so I thought he’d be the perfect person to test this product out.

    I had the great fortunate of being invited to the LA Auto Show Press Day again this year as a guest of Kelley Blue Book, which meant I was able to catch the debut of the Audi A9 Prologue Concept, an absolutely stunning design concept. This concept is intended to foreshadow design queues for all upcoming models, although they specifically mentioned styling queues coming soon to the refreshed A6, A7 and A8 models. After the unveiling, it was clear to the audience (and likely Audi themselves) that this concept could have a market of it’s own, taking on large coupes such as the Mercedes S…

    The main issue about going to malls during the holidays is that it is packed with a lot of people. Well, it is expected because it is indeed the ideal time to buy things with all the discounts being given by shops, and of course, Christmas is a time of giving so we are really obligated to buy presents during this season. One of the problems that crop up with the gathering of a huge crowd in malls is that parking our vehicles can become quite a hassle.

    Reduce chassis flex and improve handling on your 4th Gen GM F-body with four-point sub-frame connectors from BMR Suspension.

Manufactured from a mix of 2- x 2-inch square tubing, 2- x 1-inch rectangular steel tubing, and laser-cut CNC-formed 3/16-inch steel plate, these sub-frame connectors add loads of strength in all the right places. The BMR Four-Point Sub-Frame Connectors (SFC019 weld-on, SFC020 bolt-on) connect the front sub-frame to the rear sub-frame to the rear…

    Nissan and Infiniti have a long tradition of making powerful and torquey 6-cylinder engines. Within this pantheon, the VG30 and VQ30 engines hold a special place in the hearts of enthusiasts. These engines made several generations of Maxima into low-key-looking rocket ships; in Infiniti I30 trim, it made for a fast, competent sedan that put many of the offerings from Europe to shame. The VG and VQ engines have always been capable of making big power, but finding a clutch that would put all that power to the ground has been a challenge. Not anymore thanks to Centerforce.

  • Testing your Car Starter Solenoid

    administrator
    19 Dec 2014 | 3:23 am
    There are two main types of starter solenoids. One type only acts as a switch, which closes the circuit between battery and motor. The other type may act as a switch, as well as move the plunger, that engages the gear with the flywheel. Insufficient power, delivered from the car battery, can be the reason for a starter solenoid not being able to switch on the motor. Most starter motors have integrated solenoids, though in some cases the starter solenoid is a separate component. The purpose of this starter motor is to rotate the engine until the internal combustion process can take over. Since…
  • Functions of Voltage Regulator in your Car.

    18 Dec 2014 | 12:50 am
    Lights, ignition, and accessories use power from the electrical system. Every time we switch an accessory ON, more power is drawn from the electrical system. Electrical pressure drops as power is drawn from the system, and then the Voltage Regulator causes the Alternator to make more current in your cars Electrical System. The Voltage Regulator will also cause the alternator to produce more output, when voltage at the electrical system is low. In the electrical system, the voltage regulator “turns the alternator ON,” or “turns OFF the alternator” as needed to maintain voltage at the…

The system is also used on fuel-injected vehicles with the only difference being the gasses are sent into the intake rather than the carburetor.It is a component of a vehicle’s evaporative emission control system and prevents the evaporating fumes from reaching the atmosphere while also maintaining proper fuel tank pressures.

  • A Early Warning Signs to check your Cars Braking system!

    administrator
    11 Dec 2014 | 11:49 pm
    Most modern cars use Disc Brakes in their Braking System. A hydraulic system filled with brake fluid triggers a set of padded clamps known as callipers, causing them to squeeze together on a disc known as the rotor. The friction that occurs between the pads and rotor eventually stops the car to immediate halt. Over time, as you can imagine, the pads will begin to wear thin, which means they’ll become less effective at slowing and stopping your car. Between the caliper and rotors, you’ll see the Braking pad. Braking pads should be at least one-quarter of an inch thick. If…

    Cars are invented to transport people. So building one that can hold only one person isn’t ideally efficient.

But apparently, the issue of efficiency wasn’t enough to stop these strange single-seat road cars from being conceptualized or manufactured.

    Want to do yourself and others – that would be employees and customers – a favor that could earn some kudos for your dealership? Hire a part-time person to work in the showroom from now through the end of the year to be your company “elf”. We’re not talking about a big expense, but the pay-off could be incredible in terms of customer service.

    In my opinion there is very little doubt about when is the best time to buy a vehicle — it’s year-end sales. With the marketing push given to Black Friday over really just the past few years, that weekend has become the official start for the holiday shopping season. It has migrated over from retail to our industry as well – great time to buy a new vehicle, and without a doubt, a great pre-owned vehicle or what I am calling the Y.E.T. – Year End Trades.

    I find the psychological make-up of the buying public to be mystifying at times, but when there is a previous pattern to measure future behavior for a particular segment, take advantage of it. Here is the past observation: when gas prices are low, the interest in trucks and larger SUVs increases. The price of gas, especially for those who use their vehicle for business, is a cost of business they deal with whether it’s up or down. The positive situation that exists now at the pump may change at a moment’s notice but right now is a good time to take advantage of it by promoting trucks. I…

Already we are seeing programs that are set to begin around the 24th to drive traffic, including GM bringing back their successful Black Friday program of 20% off on select models. The math is easy – 10 days until Christmas – and that means attention (willingly or otherwise) of employees and staff turns to the holidays. But we are well aware of how our industry works.

While the National Retail Foundation felt the downturn was certainly caused by more people jumping online plus a diverse view on the economic recovery, the biggest factor was major retailers promoting Black Friday-level discounts as early as Halloween. The big players never let up in using TV, direct contact and social media. There are lessons to be heeded for our industry as game-changing year-end sales loom in…

  • Audi reveals the all-new 2016 Q7

    17 Dec 2014 | 3:47 pm
    Since its launch in 2005, the original Audi Q7 has done a good job of reinforcing negative SUV stereotypes. Being bloated, not especially handsome and often driven by conceited characters hiding behind aftermarket dark-tint glass did not promote an agreeable image. However, things could change with the just-unveiled second-generation model. For starters, the new Q7 is considerably lighter thanks to the extensive use of aluminium in its bodyshell. Consequently, the 3.0 TDI version now has a kerb weight of 1,995 kg (4,398 lbs), a reduction of 325 kg (716 lbs). That diet is also reflected in the…

    If you’ve started a new business over the last twelve months, you might soon be at a point where it makes sense to lease a vehicle. While some company bosses choose to purchase their cars outright, doing that is not a good idea unless you have achieved immense profits. Don’t worry though, the full price of your lease can be deducted from your accounts in April, which means you will end up giving less cash to the taxman. The benefits of leasing are many. Not only does it save wear and tear on your family car, but it also helps to promote the image of professionalism. Only successful…

  • Checking and Adding Fluid to Power Steering

    Justin Smith
    17 Dec 2014 | 2:40 am
    Power steering aids drivers by providing a level of power and support to the steering process, augmenting the effort supplied by the driver. This is usually automated via a system of hydraulics that uses a pump and reservoir, which sits on the engine. The fluid within the hydraulics is then applied to the steering gear through a set of hoses, and the pressure is used to reduce the amount of force needed to successfully steer the vehicle. Low Levels of Power Steering Fluid Even though modern engines are designed in such a way that if there is a problem with the power steering hydraulics there…

  • Checking and replacing your Car’s Shock Absorbers

    Justin Smith
    28 Nov 2014 | 8:18 am
    Shock absorbers form an essential part of your car’s suspension system. They are mechanical devices that are used to smooth out bumps and impacts from the road surface that could affect you and your passengers. They work by converting the kinetic energy generated from the movement of the wheels into easily dissipated thermal energy. Structure and Mechanism A shock absorber looks a little like a piston with a spring attached to the central rod protruding from the cylinder. The cylinder on a shock absorber contains a fluid that is used to dampen the impact of your cars wheels on any bumps or…
  • Transmission Fluid

    Justin Smith
    10 Jun 2014 | 8:54 am
    All cars use transmission fluid. This is used to lubricate the gearbox and ensure the smooth running of your vehicle. You will need to check the lubricant levels in your car regularly – how you do this depends on whether your car has a manual transmission or an automatic transmission. Manual Transmission If your car uses a manual transmission system then it will require a lubricant that is splashed throughout the transmission by the moving parts in the gearbox. If the lubricant in your engine drops below a certain level then the transmission parts in the gearbox are likely to become…

    Windscreen washer fluid is a vital part of your car’s systems. It allows you to clean the windows in adverse conditions – whether these are a dry and dusty summers day where insects and pollen are impeding your visibility, or a murky winter spell where dirty water from the road is splashing on your windscreen. It is vital that you keep your windscreen washer fluid topped up, as you never know when you will need to clean your windscreen in order to maintain visibility. You should generally top up with fluid whenever you open the car’s bonnet for any other purpose such as topping up the…

  • Testing your Car Starter Solenoid

    administrator
    19 Dec 2014 | 3:23 am
    There are two main types of starter solenoids. One type only acts as a switch, which closes the circuit between battery and motor. The other type may act as a switch, as well as move the plunger, that engages the gear with the flywheel. Insufficient power, delivered from the car battery, can be the reason for a starter solenoid not being able to switch on the motor. Most starter motors have integrated solenoids, though in some cases the starter solenoid is a separate component. The purpose of this starter motor is to rotate the engine until the internal combustion process can take over. Since…
  • Functions of Voltage Regulator in your Car.

    administrator
    18 Dec 2014 | 12:50 am
    Lights, ignition, and accessories use power from the electrical system. Every time we switch an accessory ON, more power is drawn from the electrical system. Electrical pressure drops as power is drawn from the system, and then the Voltage Regulator causes the Alternator to make more current in your cars Electrical System. The Voltage Regulator will also cause the alternator to produce more output, when voltage at the electrical system is low. In the electrical system, the voltage regulator “turns the alternator ON,” or “turns OFF the alternator” as needed to maintain voltage at the…

The system is also used on fuel-injected vehicles with the only difference being the gasses are sent into the intake rather than the carburetor.It is a component of a vehicle’s evaporative emission control system and prevents the evaporating fumes from reaching the atmosphere while also maintaining proper fuel tank pressures.

  • A Early Warning Signs to check your Cars Braking system!

    administrator
    11 Dec 2014 | 11:49 pm
    Most modern cars use Disc Brakes in their Braking System. A hydraulic system filled with brake fluid triggers a set of padded clamps known as callipers, causing them to squeeze together on a disc known as the rotor. The friction that occurs between the pads and rotor eventually stops the car to immediate halt. Over time, as you can imagine, the pads will begin to wear thin, which means they’ll become less effective at slowing and stopping your car. Between the caliper and rotors, you’ll see the Braking pad. Braking pads should be at least one-quarter of an inch thick. If…

  • A Scooter but different – Berham Customs ACMA

    It can be hard to customise old school scooters. Their flowing lines don’t lend themselves to modification as they tend look sweet enough in standard trim. Today’s feature bike is a scooter that definitely breaks the rules though. Built by Berlin’s premiere custom workshop, Berham Customs, this 1953 ACMA Vespa was given a new lease on life, showing that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. From the start of the build, Martien from Berham Customs knew how the build should look: ‘I just wanted it to look like someone had found a 50 year old custom project and…
  • Project C10 – Inspiration

    blueline02
    12 Nov 2014 | 3:17 am
    A trip to the Australian Transport Museum at Alice has given me some unexpected inspiration for the little C10 engine I am rebuilding. I think I would like to go for a full vintage look, using these bikes as the starting point for my ride. The New Hudson is the look I want to aim for, with a few mods to make for ride ability. The New Hudson is a stressed engine bike with an under slung tank, and total oil loss system. The biggest problem is the lack of a transmission, meaning that the rider has to push the bike to start it, and the lack of a drive system means the engine is either running or…

    Today, Ducati is one of the first names a person might think of when asked to name a major motorcycle manufacturer. It wasn’t always that way, with Ducati starting out as an electronics and appliance firm. Oh how far they have come. In the mid 1940s, a Turin lawyer and a self taught engineer had an idea to build a clip on engine, that could be fitted to bicycles. By 1946, the prototype had been manufactured, the short muffler giving a yipping sound as it kicked over, the nickname given to the power unit was Cucciolo, Italian for ‘puppy’. The engine was a success, with demand…

    When it comes to selecting floor mats for your car, you have dozens of options. You can go the simple route by choosing thin, same color and style carpeting used by the factory delivered floor material. That’s what I got when I picked-up my Model S in June of 2013. Nothing impressive at all about them. Second is to get those laser cut, weather guard, plastic molded trays that resemble what’s found in elementary schools or home mud rooms. Another choice is go all out and get the super plush, luxury, triple nap mats that will not necessarily protect your car’s floor any…

      Highway driving is, to put it simply, fraught with danger. Drivers still manage hundreds of thousands of miles without incident, but those relatively few incidents can be serious. Part of the problem has to do with visibility, not so much in front of the vehicle, but to the rear and sides of the vehicle. True, rear-view mirrors and outside mirrors are helpful, but still leave blind-spots that are hard to compensate for. It takes some forward thinking to get the mirrors tuned just right to reduce blind spots, or the addition of so-called blind-spot mirrors, but it’s always best to…

Before we move on to our test drive report let’s see what is new on the third generation model.

    It should come as no surprise that maintenance has a direct influence on the reliability of a vehicle. Here are five maintenance items that help to keep cars out of the repair shop.
