Just walking up to it, this 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 looks like any other of the countless 911s I’ve seen and had as my wallpaper background on my computer. As much as I’ve been an apostle of the gospel of the 911, I’ve never driven one. I’ve never taken a sip of that air-cooled kool-aid. It changes now.
Panoz is back! Or maybe it never left, it just took them several years to put one together. Anyway, here’s the new-yet-familiar Avezzano at Petit Le Mans.
Usually they’re missing the engine and the electrics look like spaghetti (sorry for the Italian joke).
No one, on any public road in any car, should ever be going fast enough that they need to be driving a car that necessitates the superior balance of mid-enginedness. They are silly posers, and will probably be videotaped crashing into a lake.
I didn’t know you could still get Porsche 968s for as little as this. You see 944s all the time but I can’t remember the last time I saw a 968.
Saw it on my Facebook feed. I couldn't tell if it was an 'Onion" type of site or what. Whatever it is, it's laughable. EDIT: yeah its satire. I totally believe the person who posted it on my Facebook is stupid enough to believe it though. ;)
Just something I was thinking about this morning: what was the first road car available with paddles? The Ferrari 360 was the earliest car I could think of. Was there anything before that?
When hearing people discuss or watching videos of people modifying cars, I always hear about "Stage 1, 2, and 3" modifications, but I've never really understood what that meant. Can anybody help me out with an explainer?
So basically all we talk about is what kind of car we want to buy and why. And we all have different opinions about that. Some of us say used luxury, new base model, vintage, truck, city car. The point is all cars are a great answer for something... as long as it can be justified.
I don't know why I never shared this stuff with you guys before, but better late than never I suppose. This year I, a lowly college aged car enthusiast from Wisconsin, USA, had the opportunity to go to the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans.
So I've been shopping for a car. A particular car. One I know you guys will appreciate: a Volvo Wagon. But not just any Volvo Wagon, a V70 X/C.
So after this whole Argentina debacle, I was thinking, what are the top ten times the Jeremy Clarkson and Co. pissed someone off?
What are the real differences between a coupe, a sedan and a wagon?
I'm in college, and it's that time of year again. Everyone always laughs at how small my car is, but I'm the one laughing now...
