I had a pug for years. She was not the brightest dog in the world. Every time I opened the front door, she would see a bid for freedom and run out towards the front yard at a dead sprint. And every time she forgot we had a storm door that was still closed and slam face first into it at 90 mph. The first time was funny Read more

This title applies to everything done by the combo of Clarkson, May, and Hammond for the last decade.

Most of those statements are true, but - how considerably? Because I’m not sure it would be that considerable.

Apparently it makes peak torque at 3700rpm now (i.e. right where the torque dip used to be in the old one). Power under the curve should be much improved.

Yes, please make this about a CRX build as opposed to the massive increased in turbo cars across the sport car range. The only company that has reversed itself is Porsche, and even then it wasn’t the forced induction, it was the 4banger. Shit Lotus is making some of the best, light sportscars out there.....with...wait Read more

No. Disingenuous would be pretending that there aren’t beaucoup reliable forced induction engines out there. Current turbo setups are also REALLY responsive. The lag in the MKVI GTI vs. the lag in the current GTI is incredibly different, and that’s at the low end of the spectrum. Also disingenuous would be pretending Read more

And here’s the money answer right here. True statement, and thats what pisses me off about the car. Same with Porsche and the Cayman. I think they need to think less about competing product lines, and think more about the next car up the ladder that this thing could take on. Read more

Lol. Currently own a car that weighs the same, has marginally more power, much higher torque, and revs higher, which is also a riot to drive, can confirm that a little more power would also be nice.

Adding a turbo would put it too close to the 2.0 litre Supra in power and performance, which I suspect Toyota don’t want. Even though Subaru does not have the same issue maybe there is a clause in the JV agreement that means Subaru cannot do a more powerful version than Toyota offer.

Yes, the upcoming BRZ benefits from a new 2.4-liter flat-four producing 228 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.

Having built a 90s era CRX with forced induction... Please do tell me about the very real tradeoffs that would have made me not want to do that.

I’m going to get panned for this, but I wonder if they realize or don’t care that with forced induction this car would be a car in the mold of the WRX when it came out and had almost the power of an M3 for soooo much less money. Maybe its selling fine without, but I keep seeing this car as a “good enough” effort Read more

The other side of this coin is going to be determined by his priorities. Yes, he’s accepted money, but he *also* is familiar with the players in the game. That’s also important for a LIAISON. You can’t get ANYTHING done if you don’t know the right people to interact with. Read more

You mean the streaming providers can’t negotiate any better channel licensing rates than the big cable companies? I’m shocked. SHOCKED.

yea, of course there are outliers, but for MANY people, a leaf antenna, or a roof antenna is great. I had a leaf on the window for a while, but when I got the HD-homerun, I also got a longer range antenna for the roof. I attached that bad-boy right on my DirectTV dish and the coax cables were all still in place. Read more
