Stuff like this is equally fascinating to engine shots and driver impressions. Inquiring minds love these trivial little itches being scratched. Jalopnik has never been about the typical auto-jurno content, and that’s the appeal. There really are a ton of places to get the coverage you are talking about. Really, no pub… Read more
That is way too appealing to say “no” to.
This is in Canadian Dollars, adjusted for today’s exchange rate, that equates to $9060.55 USD. That makes this car a whole hell of a lot better value proposition. I’ll never understand how they charge so much for small cars in the United States, it is like they don’t want to sell them. It’s rather silly.
Agreed. It not only had reasonable power after the update, but it also sounded quite good, and handled not to bad, considering the time. It failed because it wasn't a V8, which is just silly.
Yeah, the hatches on SUV's are massive. They make a hood look like a feather pillow by comparison. I'm sure they are a couple hundred pounds with motors and windows in.
It depends entirely in where they are. Have you ever seen the size of the struts on the Lincoln MKC/Corsair? Maybe they are compensating for their lack on the hood...
As long as they can justify why they love it so much, I’m good with it. I don’t like donks, stance, or low riders, but I’ve got respect for the enthusiasts behind them. As long as it isn’t just for appearances, cred or whatever other valueless social currency one chooses to apply, it is alright in my books. I love my… Read more
Don’t bring Subaru into this. They are a particular brand of terrible when it comes to bringing concepts to reality.
Damnit, that's too good. Take your star
Meanwhile, Google glitches in Canada:
This bike looks amazing, and I’m sure with a few tweaks it would be an awesome commuter. I love the quirky looks, that would be a big part of the draw. Buuut... it is a little too dear to be justifiable. You can’t play in the same league with a legacy brand like Vespa on price. They can sell for the prices they do… Read more
In what is widely considered one of the toughest industries in the world to break through in, they are very much still a startup.
“startup” means “a newly established business”. Regardless of being publicly traded, Tesla is still a startup. Where most of it’s competition has been around in excess of 100 years, Tesla haven’t even been around for twenty. GM’s original EV is almost a decade older than Tesla as a company. Relativelyly speaking,… Read more
Well we do have the Toyobaru twins, and a 2.0 liter Supra coming next year, as well as the Mazda Miata RF that is pl as close as a production Miata has ever been to a hardtop (one could argue even more difficult to pass regulations due to its retractable hardtop, rather than fixed top). In addition to the 4 cylinder… Read more
I honestly agree with you on that. They do reduce a lot of analog and digital complexity and help declutter the dash. Support for an upgraded UI will last maybe a generation, and then it will be mothballed, and forgotten. We are often promised this, rarely is it delivered. Additionally, if one thing goes wrong with… Read more
It is most definitely a special car given its rarity and uniqueness in the North American market, and arguably exciting depending on your personal vehicular persuasion. The Michigan car part is, however, somewhat suspect.
I’ve been saying this for years. I was done riding after one time I rode my CBR600RR down the highway at over 220km/h (140 mph-ish) for the 100th time and thought: “If literally anything goes won’t here I’m getting scraped up off the road with a shovel. I sold that bike and bought a 1991 Honda Nighthawk 750 with less… Read more
Family of 6' tall here. You’d be just fine in a Honda Fit Sport. At 6'3" I have room to spare in the back seat with someone who is 6' in front of me.
