Style wasn’t a problem for GM during the 90s, a little bland at times but never ugly.

How can you mention the Toyota Cavalier without including a photo of the TRD variant?

Nice Price even at $1500 more, plus $1500 for the hardtop. Stop bitching about Miata prices. They’re only going up. MIata group members are getting into verbal fistfights about a $500 price difference on cars they’re not even buying and I’m fucking sick of it. The whole community has been taken over by vaping cheapskat Read more

I interned for Porsche R&D in Weissach the summer of 1997. While the other American intern got to analyze Excel files full of exhaust data, I worked in the “Finished Prototype Department,” basically the team of ~12 mechanics who would build and modify prototype, pre-production, and small volume production vehicles. It Read more

I’ll take a little bit of solace in knowing she passed at home, instead of in some bar-less hospital…

The law enforcement problem in the US starts with the police and ends with the judges that justify their bad behavior, and all of the shitbag prosecutors and underfunded public defenders in-between. Read more

Rav4 Prime.  AWD, over 40 miles electric range, mid 30s mpg after that.

The 1st gen NSX was sold in the U.S. until 2005. Along the way it got a bump in displacement and power as well as a 6-speed gearbox to replace the original five speed, power steering and of course a couple of styling refreshes.

“Why aren’t there more plug-in electric hybrid SUV’s,” which is seriously a problem. When our ‘12 forester dies, I want to get a plug in hybrid as the vast majority of our driving is less than 30 miles. And we want one  small SUV in the family, as my car (veloster) is not great for carrying stuff. But it’s also the Read more

A fully electric wrangler. My commute since January is enough for 25 miles of electric range, if I go further the gas motor helps and charges the batteries making it a hybrid if the EV mode is not enough.

There are a lot of vehicles that I would be interested in if only their mileage wasn’t so shitty. I’m sure I’m not the only one out there who feels that way! A wrangler that can be an EV on the daily commute and still be a beast on the trail would let people have their cake and eat it too. Read more

I think you are mis-remembering things. The original NSX came out in 1990 with a NA 3.0 l 270 hp engine (as you said). As a comparison, a 1990 Porsche 911 with 3.6 l NA flat six made 247 hp, a Z28 Camaro with a 5.0 l V8 made 210 hp, a 1990 US MR2 with the NA 2.2 l I4 made 130 hp, the turbo 2.0l made 200 hp, and my Read more

While I agree about the underwhelming performance, it wasn’t that bad in the context of the time and the VTEC system was innovative then. It wasn’t really about the power, though, as much as being a daily drivable supercar, which was unheard of at the time. I think it was also meant to appeal to a more select audience Read more

Pretty obvious its for people who want an off-roader that doesn’t get shit mileage.

The average American’s commute is 16 miles. My commute certainly falls in line with that. I could drive this to work, charge it there, drive it home, charge it there. On a long trip, it’s just another Jeep. On my daily commute that Read more

I think the point was that you said that 2016 was the best year, then said that in year 2 (2017), sales increased to 581 units, making year 2 the best year...

Here in the U.S., and as is the case with most models’ debut, its best year was its first year, 2016. Acura moved 269 units. In 2017 there was a sales increase of 117 percent to 581 units.”
