Less thrust means slower acceleration too. Stopping distances probably not a big issue in a boat(?)

The boat’s top speed would be lower with jet drives. So, less performance than with props.

There’s a 3-series GT in the parking lot at my office with its spoiler always deployed. I’m guessing there’s a switch to allow this. Sadly, there’s no switch to make it less ugly.

This would be a lot more interesting if it were powered by 2 or 3 turbo’d AMG V12s with Kaama drives. Then again, go-fast boats are only fun when you’re going fast and mediocre the rest of the time. Not my choice for spending a day on the water.

Jet drives aren’t as efficient at converting HP to thrust as a prop.

I think there are a few companies doing Challenger convertibles; I’m just not sure if the Dodge warranty stays intact after the conversion. Maybe if some big company like ASC teamed up with FCA for help with the engineering aspect it could happen and have Chrysler’s blessing.

Or downsize it to put more daylight between them and the half-tons.

Ten Dakotas? That doesn’t seem to be a great endorsement for quality.

Does anybody still build an inexpensive 1/4 ton rwd pickup like the S10 years ago? I’d think the midsize truck segment exists because that’s the smallest available now. Read more

My takeaway here is Jaguar needs to beef up its motor mounts a tad.

Not sure how Chrysler would do a 300 vert as a 4 door, but if they did have a coupe version it could do very well as the only player in the segment. Charger sales are helped by this too since everybody else bailed out of the full size sedan game.

After all the money they saved by taking olives out of the salads, the airline’s finance whiz-kids had to come up with something to generate revenue.

I always give a heads-up before I recline. It prevents me from being strangled with the cord from the $5 headphones by a potential sociopath behind me.
