The dirty secret that no ‘enthusiast’ wants to admit is that for 90% of us, the used R35 is faster, easier to live with, cheaper in the long run, and less likely to cause you headaches every time you need to renew the registration or if you ever want to move to another state.

Not going to lie, there’s a particular flavor of schaudenfreude being played out watching Japan shit itself because decades of straight-up racist and nationalist ideology coupled with a borderline ‘lost’ generation of people under 30 are wrecking havoc with their economic and social systems.

I blame automatics not sucking. Getting an automatic used to have an associated penalty in performance, reliability and mileage. Now they’re faster, more reliable, will tow more (if you’re getting a truck), and get better mileage. The only reason to get a manual now is that you like them. I’m one of those who likes to Read more

What do the youths actually want from Nissan? My money is on a cheap Leaf with a liquid-cooled battery pack.

I saw a Q60 the other day. Apparently there’s less than 200 registered in the U.K. which makes it rarer than most Ferraris!

Pretty much all modern diesels have at least one turbo, the CX-5 diesel has two.

The elephant in the room is why this over a Rav4, Escape or CR-V hybrid? Sure the diesel gets better towing numbers but how many U.S. buyers are are going to tow with their compact crossover?

I’m wondering why Mazda is wasting time and money developing diesels when they’re probably going to be outlawed before too long (at least in the EU). Be interesting to see how the emissions really are when tested independently.

When everything is becoming a plugin hybrid, does it even make sense to deal with diesel anymore? (fewer pumps, the DEF fluid, etc.) Does it feel like there’s even a point? Unless you want towing torque? But a CX-5 isn’t really setup to tow.  Read more

Tada implied to me once that the off-the-shelf platforms they had wouldn’t have made the Supra handle the way they wanted. Beyond that it was cost, time and the need to put money into future tech instead of low-volume sports cars.

on top of that he doesnt know anything about the environment either. he criticizes China and India. Well next to china the US is the second largest carbon polluter. And when looking at per capita the US is number one with an emission rate almost 3x larger per person than china. The title should really be changed to

More people in America now die by guns than do by car accidents. What does the estimable administration intend to do about that? Make guns even less safe? Increase the lead content of bullets?
