Reason why it sold well: the i8 gave you supercar/exotic like looks with lease payments that could be afforded by most young guys with a decent job. I’m sure performance wasnt necessarily at the top of their priority list..Gotta give BMW some credit for putting something like this in production though.

The 2JZ could make close to 1khp without even opening up the block.  The record is probably even higher.  Not sure how long they lasted though.

Surprised nobody mentioned the obvious... Evo X MR.  Great car with modding potential.

One word that comes to mind when thinking of Aston is outdated. The cars are beautiful, but dont really compete. Aston can’t even touch Ferrari right now. They need to build/restore their image from being outdated, unreliable British cars by winning comparos and races. I dont recall an Aston ever winning a comparo Read more

In this sentence, it sounds like the EM1 has the superior driving experience and not the 2018: Read more

Does it feel strange to drive a car dressed up so garishly, wing, body kit and all, yet it gets drug by a camry and various crossovers?

Not trying to take anything away from her win, but wouldn’t she have a significant weight advantage over most men in the field? Or is that negated somehow?

Clickbaity headline. Theres always going to be cases where a slower car beats a faster car due to any number of factors.

At first I thought it was just a bad body kit or kit car. But it actually looks pretty cool.

One problem - shitty lease deals. Case in point - I’ve always been an american car buy and was looking for a sports sedan which could haul the family if needed. My top option was an ATS-V. I go to the dealer close to me and check out the ONLY ATS-V which they had in stock, MSRP was ~70k. Even though I bought a Camaro Read more

911R isn’t exactly the best car in a straight line to compare against - 500 N/A hp via RWD? the Tesla is AWD also, comparing against a GT-R or something would be a lot closer.

I think its acceptable to wear them at automative events, but outside of that you look like a tool whether you own the car or not. Aftermarket brands/companies are OK though.

I had a 2016 NX200t with NAV and man, that infotainment system was terrible! It was way worse than the myLink in my 2013 Camaro. It was so slow and clunky to use. Sad, especially when you pay that much for a luxury car.

Love the car, not sure if its at “ludicrous” power levels though. Definitely enough to have fun.

I leased a 2017 Ghibli SQ4 (top trim) for under the $70k figure that CR quotes. Since many of them are steeply discounted, I think its a bit unfair to compare it to its actual sticker. Hell, I definitely wouldn’t get one at sticker. I agree that interior quality isn’t up to MB’s standard, but its not terrible. Read more

If the SS looked anything liked this, it would’ve sold better. Younger people in the market for a quick car don’t want it to look like a grandma-mobile. Plus who wouldn’t want to say they have a ‘GTSR W1'?!

Will it? Tesla might win to 60, but after that I think ICE engines pull away.
