I would probably just take a R35 GTR at this point. I do not get the point of paying a premium for a rapidly aging car from 20-30 years ago. Especially if you had to put up with it as a daily driver.  Surprised that the shop does not just focus on selling R35 GTR’s instead.

The Nissan R32-R34 GTR has always been luxury car money when they were new. It was never an affordable car to begin with. The sports car market is a fraction of what it was in the US, 20 years ago.  So how would Nissan sell a large amount of a type of car people do not buy as much anymore.

The Civic and Corolla still sell well and not everyone has the resources or wants a crossover.  If the next generations are more price conscious then a cheap subcompact and compact sedan would be the way to go.

Most people were still going out to buy Nissan’s bread and butter cars back in the day and the Skyline GT-R and 300ZX were more of a rich men toys. With the Civic and Corolla still selling well in America, there is a market for cheap and reliable economy sedans and hatches.  Nissan should make sure the next gen Read more

The 300ZX and the Skyline GTR’s were built for rich boomers. Nissan should focus on pushing the new Versa and redesign the Sentra which are cars people in their 20's and 30's might be able to afford.

Out of the launch MK8 Golf models, the 128hp or 148hp eTSI ones would be the only models that would really interest me. Since the regular Golf is most likely DOA in America for the time being, I would really have no-reason to get a VW product at this point. I am one of the few people that actually went out and Read more

I think the major elephant in the room is that electric vehicles and electric autonomous vehicles are not really end all solution to fight climate change and it does not fix how wasteful we are with land-use in America. Per Capita American pollute more GHG compared to people in other developed countries. It is not Read more

Since many countries tax on engine displacement and emissions I see why Mercedes would do this if this rumor is true. Many countries are also phasing out conventional gas and diesel powered cars so if Mercedes wants to be able to sell AMG cars in these markets it makes sense. The Porsche 919 Hybrid that one the 24 Read more

If the tax revenue is put into publicly funded renewable energy powered high-speed rail, intercity passenger rail, and night trains I would be for the tax.  Flying should really only be used for international travel and for 3000 mile cross-country trips.

Infiniti’s line-up is outdated, and is not a better value compared to competitor cars. The G35 and G37 were competent cars but man the Q50/Q60 have been big disappointments. They just seem so half baked. With rise of Tesla as a competitor and BMW, Audi, Mercedes, and Lexus filling pretty much every niche part of Read more

BMW’s SAV sales are fine and overall sales were up slightly in 2018 compared to 2017.  It is not good that 3 series sales are down, but if customers are staying in the brand and just buying SAVs instead that is not a bad thing for BMW. http://carsalesbase.com/us-car-sales-data/bmw/

I agree.  I never understood why American car enthusiasts obsessed over diesel engines.  The only ones that were okay to drive at least in a larger vehicle are the six cylinder ones.  The four cylinder ones all feel gutless and out of breath after 3000 rpm.  I see why Japan and Korea went the hybrid route.  In the end Read more

I does the the diesel CX-5 feel compared to a RAV-4 Hybrid? It seems like the Rav-4 would be a better buy tbh.

The Lexus RC is extremely heavy and so is the LC.  The Z4's platform made sense in this situation for a performance car especially if they were aiming at the Cayman.

Yup you are correct. They pretend that something horribly outdated is some how superior to much newer technology that is superior in every way. Coal is being phased out in basically in any other country because it is dirtier than renewable energy and even dirtier than natural gas.  Yet Trump wants to protect it to Read more

That is a crock of crap to even suggest that heavier dirty cars would lead to less death. Do you not consider how many people that die from pollution a year? If we mandated frontal collision warning and adaptive cruise control on new production cars, we could lower the amount deaths including for pedestrians and Read more

I am hoping with all these most recent Elon Musk failures that people stop taking him seriously related to public transit, intercity travel, and urban planning. At the end of the day Amtrak loses much less money than Tesla even though it is required to provide service to rural areas that do not generate much Read more

BRZ and GT86 sales are down and Hyundai killed off the Genesis Coupe. Unfortunately  that might have been a business savvy decision for them with the sports coupe market shrinking.
