Mini-SUVs/CUVs. Glorified and lifted FWD wagons that are 99% likely to never go off-road...and probably aren’t that capable when they do go onto rougher terrain. They’re playing off of buyers’ insecurities about safety and that a bigger vehicle = higher safety or needing a vehicle for northern snow when you really

Fastback looks on sedans. It cuts into rear headroom so much and makes trunk openings a joke. It looks good, but ruins the functionality of them.

If there’s one kind of leaking I hate it’s the asshole who trespasses (or violates the completely reasonable camera rules for crew / setup days) at a trade show to get photos days or even hours before the car drops. It’s low-hanging fruit as long as you’re stupid and ballsy enough to do it, and I hope that asshole

Unlike the Andes, they have eyes on the crash site, and I read that the debris is spread over a fairly wide area. I think that, based on what they can see of the wreckage, that the call of no survivors is likely accurate, sadly. But, there's always hope.

Very true...but also in part because ancient 737s tend to go to South America and Africa after their first-world service life gets a little stale. No judgment against the 737, that's what happens to really stout airframes.

Kaltenborn needs to get lost. Breaking contracts because you see a shiny coin flashed in front of you means you should get fired.

Just read an article on Crashnet. The quote from Kaltenborn seemed to indicate that they knew what they were doing when they did it. They expected this guy to go away and be quiet. Looks they screwed the pooch here.

You've got to admire VDG for taking the battle to Sauber over this, but I just can't imagine him having a good relationship with the team going forward, no matter how well he says he gets along with the mechanics, etc. This situation continued will no doubt put the team in potential collapse and I'd hardly think those

If he speaks other languages he should try to get himself a job outside of Korea. Sounds really creepy.

Personally, I'd rather jump ship to one if their rivals or wrangle a talk show and get paid bank to bad mouth these assholes at every opportunity.

I pushed it out to oppositeblog, maybe it will get picked up from there.

I'm not convinced that "upgrade" is the right word. Possibly "added turbo lag, and increased the wheelspin in 4th gear" is more accurate.
Badass for pure insanity, nonetheless.

Yes it is, a saab 9-2x aero so it's not that special considering its already a subaru. It is a ej22 with wrx heads and a 18g turbo which will all burn corn fuel to keep it interesting.
