Happy Thursday, everyone! It is time once again for your favorite automotive-centric internet radio show: the TopSpeed.com Podcast. This week Justin and Mark join me for another full show full of hijinks, burning petrol and the occasional silliness.
The Weekly Wheels segment features the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid , the Mitsubishi Outlander and a special appearance from a classic Porsche .
Our news stories cover the prospect of a new GTI Club Sport , the upcoming 2015 Dodge Charger and a potential successor to the Mitsubishi 3000GT . Mark covers the 5 best pickups under $30k , and then we celebrate the coming of spring with talk of the M4 Convertible .
Thanks to you guys, we had a big Q&A segment that included our picks for worst car names ever, what cars we wish would hit U.S. shores and we discuss what cars we would wipe from the history of existence. Other fun questions include what we would cram a Ferrari V-12 engine into, odd stories from press drives and we discuss what it would take to make us leave this great job. It was quite the eclectic collection of questions.
Thanks for being so awesome, guys. Keep the questions coming.
We wrap up our show with Own, Drive, Burn in which we celebrated the warm weather some more with our choices between a Porsche Boxster , Mercedes-Benz SLK and a BMW Z4 .
As an extra bonus to everyone listening, watching and actually reading this far down in the post, I am going to be giving a few of my own personal bits of cool auto stuff to some of you guys. I have a smaller version of the Aston Martin DB5 print that is hanging on my wall, and I have a calendar from the same photographer.
