• The Ford Mach-E EV Is NOT A Good Investment

    The Ford Mustang Mach-E was introduced with great fanfare back in November 2019 as the company’s first true EV and an all-electric SUV that can match the mighty Mustang on the performance front. It’s been a year since then and deliveries have been postponed to 2021, but that’s not the biggest issue Ford has with the Mach-E. It seems Ford is bracing for poor resale values of the electric crossover, as revealed by a MachEClub forum member who got his hands on the company’s
  • The Alpina BMW i8 Didn’t Happen Because of Limitations in the i8’s Design

    Whenever BMW unveils a cool model, Alpina usually modifies it into something even more exciting. Unfortunately, the i8 hybrid sports car was an exception from this rule.
    Alpina did develop a beefed-up i8, as revealed back in 2019, but the performance hybrid never made into production. Alpina initially said that BMW didn’t agree for the project to go on, but the tuning company is now back to explain why the souped-up i8 remained just a prototype. As it turns out, turning it into a producti
  • Tesla’s Electric Semi Could Run up to 621 Miles Between Charges

    People have major range anxiety when it comes to passenger EVs; so you can imagine how commercial truck operators must feel about electric cargo haulers. Back in 2017, Musk had said that the upcoming commercial Semi would achieve as much as 500 miles of range on a single charge. It seemed almost impossible back then, but battery technology has taken huge strides. Three years later, Tesla is now talking about a 600+ miles range. Does it still seem unbelievable? I don’t think so.
  • A New Rendering Shows How Much Potential the 2022 Subaru BRZ Really Has

    The Subaru BRZ has that sweet cult car status because of the general aura surrounding the Subaru as a car brand. Such popularity is similar to the love other Japanese brands get from the U.S. car-aficionado public - think Toyota or Honda - and whenever these makers drop a new model, the rip curls reaches every corner of the car world and other related areas.
    X-Tomi Design’s take on a would-be Subaru BRZ STI hasn’t gone unnoticed so following the same thematic, it’s time to bri

  • The 2021 Porsche 911 GT3 Debuts Unexpectedly With An N/A Engine And Manual Gearbox

    A few days ago, the upcoming Porsche 911 GT3 was unveiled ahead of time through a series of leaked photos that showed parts of the exterior and the cabin. As it turns out, those pictures were screenshots of an exclusive first look video that Carfection made with the 911 GT3 and Porsche’s Andreas Preuninger. The video is out, and we can finally take a closer look at the company’s track-prepped GT.

    Subaru Clearly Needs to Build a BRZ STI
    The second-generation Subaru BRZ has arrived, and it looks like a winner. But just as everyone is celebrating the arrival of the new BRZ, a certain question that was left unanswered with the first-generation model has slowly crept back into the minds of Subaru fans where: are we finally getting the BRZ STI?
    We’re no closer to getting the answer we desperately want, but that didn’t stop X-Tomi Design from whetting our appetites with a rendering of what a BRZ STI could look like.
  • Lincoln Nautilus

    The Nautilus was seemingly lost between the compact Corsair and the larger Aviator. For the 2021 model, Lincoln decided to give it a refresh and make it relevant again. It continues to be powered by the same engine and more or less looks the same from the outside – save for the three new exterior shades.
    However, the biggest change comes inside the cabin, where Lincoln has put a lot of effort. It looks vastly different and is heavy on technology. The highlight is the new 13.2-inch touchsc

  • Watch The Ram TRX and The Ford F-150 Raptor Come Face-to-Face In This Four-Way Drag Race

    It is always fun to see big, bulky trucks ripping the roads in a straight line. There are numerous videos online where you can find any combination of two trucks going up against each other. But, the one that you wouldn’t have seen so far and is arguably the most-anticipated war is the Ram 1500 TRX versus the Ford F-150 Raptor. However, this, too, is ticked off the list, thanks to the folks at TFLTrucks. The guys brought together the two behemoths on a drag strip along with the Chevy Silv
  • By 2024, Your Porsche 911 Might Not Run On Gasoline Anymore

    Earlier in November 2020, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume revealed that the German firm is developing a new synthetic fuel as a strategy to keep its old sports cars on the road. With emission regulations becoming stricter and with most automakers now shifting toward electrification, cars with internal combustion engines may no longer be road-legal in 20 years. Porsche wants to solve this problem with a new synthetic fuel that will replace gasoline in internal combustion cars, reducing CO2 emissions an
  • Super Rare Car for Sale: No. 1 1993 Cizeta V16T - Owned By Sultan of Brunei

    Most of the supercars you see come up for sale in the used market are generally rare and have very few miles on the odo. They sell for a fat amount almost always. Other than the condition and desirability of the vehicle, there is another factor associated with it – history.
    For instance, have you heard of the brand Cizeta? It isn’t as famous as your Shelby or Aston Martin, but it is still commanding a lot of attention lately because one of its rare models was owned by none other tha
  • Honda Had a Few Tricks Up Its Sleeve When Designing The 2022 Honda Civic

    Last week was a big one for Honda and its followers alike. There’s always great buzz whenever a new generation Civic is announced and Honda’s unveiling of the 2022 Civic prototype made no exception.
    Now, we’ve already learned what we had to learn from the Japanese carmaker’s PR talk, but it’s time to delve deep into the 2022 Honda Civic topic with a little help from Gary Robinson, Head of Product Planning at American Honda.
  • Kia Builds Two Sorento Concepts To Prove Its Wild Nature

    Kia’s rise in the car world has been nothing sort of spectacular and we can clearly see it today in cars such as the Telluride or the all-new 2021 Sorento. Speaking of which, the Koreans’ American arm has been brewing two Sorento-based off-road concepts and we can’t get enough of their coolness. Meet the Sorento Yosemite Edition and Zion Edition.
  • New Porsche 911 GT3 Caught Testing Next To The Cayman GT4 RS

    If you’ve been following us, you know that the upcoming Porsche 911 GT3 is no longer a mystery. We spotted the track-prepped 911 on public roads numerous times and recent sightings include an almost camo-free car. We’ve also seen leaked photos with the GT3’s interior, so we’re basically waiting for Porsche to spill the beans and tell us more about what’s under the rear hood. But the Germans are still fine tuning the 911 GT3, which we spotted once again, this time a
  • Just like the Supra, the GR Yaris Might Be More Powerful Than Toyota Says

    Remember earlier this year when it was revealed that the Toyota Supra actually produced more power than Toyota advertised? Well, it looks like it isn’t the only Toyota that’s more powerful than we thought.
    A recent dyno test conducted on the GR Yaris revealed that Toyota’s firecracker of a hot hatch comes with a 1.6-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine that produced more than Toyota’s claimed output of 268 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque. A video of the GR Ya

    If you are a James Bond fan, you would’ve seen this car many times in the movies. In fact, it even made an appearance in Skyfall. The one that was driven by Sean Connery in the movies was in fact sold for $4.6 million in 2010. That’s the kind of fanfare this car has ever since. But, that doesn’t mean the car had no role to play.
    The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 was powered by a six-cylinder engine and was in production for just two years. Off the 900 examples built in that period, on

  • The Numbers Are In and the 2021 Kia K5 Really Does Outperform the BMW 3 Series

    The auto industry has changed a lot in recent years. Once the leaders of the premium market, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi are now being given a run for their money by brands previously known to produce cheap and uninspiring cars. Like Kia and Hyundai.
    BMW was also known for being THE driver’s car, but this feat has been diluted as well. Recently to the point where the so-called uninspiring brands deliver vehicles with matching or even better performance. Before you say that a Kia can&rsqu

Only a few days after the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series snatched the production car lap record from the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, Mercedes-AMG has released the on-board video of the supercar’s record-setting lap time.

  • MAD Ford Bronco Sport Badlands Overland Concept

    Ford’s recipe for its 2020 SEMA Auto Show lineup was simple. Use popular models in the lineup, give them concept makeovers, and let everyone know about all the custom tuning possibilities that can be done to these models. It doesn’t come as a surprise that, in addition to the Ranger and the F-150 trucks, Ford chose the Bronco to its SEMA lineup and created two concepts out of the returning nameplate. One of these concepts is called the MAD Ford Bronco Sport Badlands Overland. Ford t

    The 2021 SEMA Auto Show is going the virtual route because of the coronavirus pandemic. That’s a bummer for those who were looking forward to their annual pilgrimage to Sin City, but automakers have long adapted to the situation. Instead of attending auto shows like SEMA to unveil their newest creations, automakers have now gone digital, showcasing their latest offerings online.
    Ford is one of those companies, and tonight, the Blue Oval is hosting “Ford Auto Nights,” a special

    Saleen has built some high-performance cars since its inception, but the most prominent one is the S7. This mid-engined, hand-built sports car stayed in production for about a decade. The S7 was powered by an all-aluminum V-8 engine that produced 550 horses in its first run until 2005 and was then updated to make 750 ponies in the later model years.
    The S7 was a high-profile car and you don’t see many on the road or up for sale very often. However, one example from 2007 has arrived at Bri
  • There’s Something So Mesmerizing About Watching This Wooden Ford Range Raptor Come to Life

    The Ford Ranger Raptor is the badass brother of the log-crawling mid-size pickup truck that is the Ranger. The deal with each one of Ford’s Raptors is that they can still successfully face rough terrains but do so with an added dose of cool. Big tires, a wider body, and more ground clearance complete the image of a truck that few will mess with, even if it’s all been rendered in wood which is the material of choice in the case of this scaled-down replica of the Ranger Raptor.

    The 2021 Ford F-150 came with a whole lot of new things, like a hybrid mill, 12-inch touchscreen system, and a Pro Power Onboard Generator, amongst other things. One other impressive feature are the Max Recline Seats.
    These are seats that essentially flip down almost 180 degrees so you can take a nap on work sites. Instead of just having the existing seats to fold flat, Ford worked from scratch to make sure you don’t end up with sprains and aches if you decide to have a siesta.
  • Subaru Says There’s a Good Reason the 2022 BRZ Doesn’t Have a Turbo

    Visually, the second-generation Subaru BRZ is a major departure from its predecessor. It’s also packing a bigger 2.4-liter engine, which counts as an answered prayer to everyone who wanted the new BRZ to pack more power than the first-generation model.
    The 2.4-liter four-cylinder mill is still naturally aspirated, bursting the bubble of those who wanted the new BRZ’s engine to be turbocharged. As disappointing — for some — as that sounds, Subaru had reasons for sticking

Performance aside, the 2022 BRZ comes with a heavily updated interior that looks fresh and packs more technology than before. Let’s find out how it compares to the outgoing model.
  • This Lamborghini Countach is Marlboro Red and Has a Lexus Twin-Turbo V-8

    The Lamborghini Countach is one of the most famous out of all of the supercars to have come out of the 20th century. With its Gandini-penned wedge-shape design that became the standard for what a supercar should look like, the Countach really was one of those cars that looked better than they went. As such, Lamborghini tried to make it even more dramatic as the years rolled by but failed miserably at the job. Could this tobacco-liveried replica succeed where Lamborghini failed?

    When we talk about French supercars, the first to come to mind are models from Bugatti’s lineup – the various versions of the Veyron, EB110, or the Type 57 Atlantique. And although many enthusiasts would quickly recite a long list of some of the most iconic supercars, there are those that remain in obscurity. The 1995-2000 Aixam Mega Track certainly is one of those forgotten supercars that may have been ahead of its time. Here are ten facts about this quirky French supercar.
