5 Pocket-Rockets That You Can Have In the U.S.

5 Pocket-Rockets That You Can Have In the U.S.

Why go for an SUV when these will provide a ton of fun?

Here’s a short list of 5 pocket-rockets every U.S. buyer can have instead of that big, sluggish SUV. And yes, such cars are more popular over the pond in Europe, but there are also plenty of choices from we can choose from I the States as well. Sure, an SUV will carry the kids during that trip you’ve been planning, or the groceries from the supermarket to your home, but it doesn’t come close to the thrills you’ll get from a proper pocket-rocket. Here are five go-fast cars you can buy in the United States and have a bucketload of fun with.

The Only Road-Legal Porsche 935 Is Up For Sale!

The Only Road-Legal Porsche 935 Is Up For Sale!

It’s as close to the 1979 Le Mans winner as you’ll ever get

Porsche’s 935 race car was built to compete in the Group 5 class that was the pinnacle of GT racing in the late ’70s and very early ’80s. The 935 was the car to beat in Europe and across the Atlantic in the U.S. and even won Le Mans overall. Such accolades pushed F1 team owner Walter Wolf to want one, but not for the race track. The result was maybe the fastest road-legal car in the world at the time.

When you think about a GT racing car, you envision a car that’s based on a production model that was heavily modified, stripped of any useless equipment that only added weight, and then sent out on the track to compete against other vehicles like it. What’s unusual is to want for one of those race-prepped machines to be made street-legal again, while keeping most if not all of the racing bits on. That was the premise, largely speaking, of the insane GT1 class that lived a short life in the late ’90s but, even before that, there was one car that followed that same path: Walter Wolf’s street-going 935 K3 built by Kremer Racing of Germany.

Here’s a Teaser of Infinities Detroit-Bound Coupe-Like Electric Crossover

Rides on a new all-electric platform

When it comes to "love it or hate it" designs, coupe-style crossovers are the first that spring into mind. While some hate them entirely, others would buy one in a heartbeat. Whether you like coupe crossovers or not, a new model is about to come under the spotlight. It’s made by Infiniti and will make its global debut at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show in January.

The Reasoning Behind the 2020 C8 Chevy Corvette's Delay is Stupid at Best

The Reasoning Behind the 2020 C8 Chevy Corvette’s Delay is Stupid at Best

Do the budget constraints have anything to do with this?

We recently learned that the Corvette C8 is going to miss the upcoming Detroit Auto Show in January 2019. According to GM Authority, anonymous sources have said that the automaker is delaying the mid-engined ‘Vette by six months after the engineers discovered a "major electrical issue" with the car. If true, this screw-up is quite embarrassing for the automaker.

2019 Peugeot 508 SW

2019 Peugeot 508 SW

We really have to come out and say it straight off the bat: the Peugeot 508 SW is one of the best looking estate- or wagon-style vehicles on the market right now at any price. It builds on the striking but stylish look of the 508 sedan but adds extra coolness and practicality courtesy of the wagon shape.

It debuted a few months after the three-box hatch (which looks like a sedan, but it really isn’t) was unveiled at the 2018 Geneva motor show, where people flocked around the Peugeot stand to get a better look at it - I’ve literally never seen a motor show stand more crowded, and as I was approaching it, I thought Peugeot had unveiled a surprise concept. In the end, it was actually the production-spec 508.

The 508 SW I think looks even better than the already pretty hatchback, especially since it’s not really a boxy, traditional wagon, but more of a fastback/shooting brake type of vehicle. Unusually for a load lugger of its type, it ticks the “looks like it’s moving while standing still” cliché box.

Visual Comparison: the 2020 Toyota Supra vs the Toyota FT-1

Visual Comparison: the 2020 Toyota Supra vs the Toyota FT-1

The new Supra Is Curiously Close To The FT-1 In Terms Of Design

The process of maturing from the Concept phase to the production phase usually entails a dramatic design transformation of a car. Not so in the case of the new 2020 Toyota Supra A90. With the design heavily based around the Toyota FT-1 Concept, I can clearly say that Toyota designers are brazen. Under the engineering hand of Tetsuya Tada, the Supra’s design team managed to capture all the important styling cues from the FT-1 and successfully translate them into the production car. At least judging by the one leaked photo that revealed the front end of the new Supra. Sure, the photo was captured in a transportation wagon, probably headed for Detroit, but it does reveal main cues rooted in the design of the FT-1 that was unveiled five years ago at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

So, how does exactly the new 2020 Toyota Supra A90 compare with the Toyota FT-1 Concept?

A New Technology Is In Works That Could Probably Save Internal Combustion Engines

A New Technology Is In Works That Could Probably Save Internal Combustion Engines

A good way to let the combustion engines as well as electric powertrains co-exist in harmony

Now that the car industry is tightening emission rules, and the world is moving towards electrification and adopting the technology wholeheartedly, we enthusiasts are close to losing our minds. No doubt, electric cars are good, but they do not offer the same spiritual experience that a car with an internal combustion engine does. A German startup says it has developed a technology that uses microwaves to help counter emissions output to a certain extent.

Journos have tried it out and, since this is an Audi we’re talking about, their first impressions of the car are a bit predictable.

The Grand Tour Will Return For a Fourth Season, But Under a New Format

Big budget, multi-hour specials will replace the usual 10 one-our episodes

Good news for fans of The Grand Tour: The show is returning for a fourth season. Bad news for fans of The Grand Tour: The show’s studio-dominated configuration is getting the heave-ho. That’s the word from Amazon, which announced the renewal of the hit motoring show for Season 4, albeit with big changes in the way for the upcoming season. There’s no timetable on when Season 4 comes out, but don’t expect it to air until 2020. Season 3 hasn’t even come out yet; that’s on schedule to première on January 18, 2019.

Will Lincoln Follow Rolls-Royce's Example and Feature Suicide Doors on the 2020 Lincoln Continental?

Will Lincoln Follow Rolls-Royce’s Example and Feature Suicide Doors on the 2020 Lincoln Continental?

The American luxury brand looks like it wants to bring the past into modern times

Is Lincoln bringing back suicide doors on the Continental? The Ford-owned automaker hasn’t confirmed anything, but it did release an interesting teaser showing a pair of door handles sitting close to one another. The teaser was accompanied by hints that suicide doors, or “center-opening doors,” as Lincoln calls the configuration, could be making a comeback on the brand’s flagship sedan, the Continental. We’ll know more at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show whether Lincoln’s pulling us on a string, or if it’s really bringing back the door setup that carries the name “suicide doors” for a reason.

The Jaguar I-Pace fails emergency braking test

The Jaguar I-Pace fails emergency braking test

The test was organized by a Norwegian publication and the Jag was last out of 25 cars

The Jaguar I-Pace is the first all-electric SUV from the legendary British manufacturer and, while it is filled with high-end technology to the brim, it seems to fall short in one important area: accident prevention. More precisely, it seems that the car’s automatic emergency braking system, or AEB, only hits the brakes when the car is running at an extremely low speed.

Norwegian publication Dinside 20 år gathered 29 cars (four others didn’t have AEB systems at all) to test their ability to stop at speed if an obstacle appears in front of them and the person behind the wheel does absolutely nothing. The publication tested all 25 cars that did have this safety feature which should, on paper, apply the brakes when it determines that the driver won’t take any sort of evasive action. However, the system inside the Jaguar I-Pace proved lackluster which is all the more intriguing considering the fact that it worked fine on the E-Pace.

15 Must-Know Facts About The Stunning Audi E-Tron GT

The Audi E-Tron GT Concept Is 100 Percent Vegan

We are prepared for the all-out invasion of electric cars from the Volkswagen Group. Audi showed a clear path to electrification with the E-Tron SUV, the Aicon, and even that crazy PB18, but now we have been introduced to the gorgeous Audi E-Tron GT. As a saloon, the E-Tron GT tends to be the ultimate expression of Audi’s own electric future by combining state-of-the-art technology with electric propulsion and framing it all into a form so gorgeous it’ll mess with your mind.

Actually, it is so gorgeous that it will make an appearance in The Avengers. Even if we disregard The Avengers, the Audi E-Tron GT is filled with such wonders that I am rather smitten by its presence and the technology included in one package. I will present you 15 astounding facts about the new Audi E-Tron GT - basically the first car to match the stature of the Tesla Model S. And in my eyes, to shatter that stature to pieces.
It is that beautiful.

Is Chevy Afraid to Debut the 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Next to the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500?

Is Chevy Afraid to Debut the 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Next to the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500?

Or is there a bigger underlying issue with the ’Vette?

The moment we’ve all been waiting for isn’t around the corner. GM has made it official that the mid-engined, C8 Corvette won’t be unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show. Ford will, however, launch the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500. Did Chevrolet chicken out at the last moment and tried to avoid direct comparisons with the GT500?

It sounds like an incredible hypothesis, but what if it’s true? Or what if Chevrolet actually encountered some other issues during the final tests of the C8 that pushed the American giant to delay the launch of, maybe, their most awaited product ever? In any case, the most bad-ass sixth-generation Mustang will be at NAIAS and Chevrolet will have no ’answer’ for it at their stand. This is interesting.

New car, new name, but the same old DNA

Skoda announced the Rapid’s replacement in July this year, and now, the company has launched its successor under the nameplate "Scala." That was quick! Although we crib and cry when a car is teased for ages and not launched, we must admit that we missed that phase with the Scala. We saw just a couple of spy shots before the company released a few teasers and technical specs, and the car itself, all in quick succession.

In Case You Forgot Volkswagen Was Shady, It’s Now Under Fire For Illegally Selling Pre-Production Cars as Used Cars

They didn’t meet U.S. or European Regulations and VW’s CEO Herbert Diess Was Reportedly Aware

The way things are going, Volkswagen should be renamed as Volkscandal. Instead of focusing on rebuilding the “Volks’" trust after the Dieselgate fiasco, the German automaker continues to roll on the same saga. This time, the company has sold Pre-production prototypes that didn’t meet regulatory approval in the U.S. and Europe. Dear VW, why would you want to continue working unethically despite being one of the world’s largest carmakers?

Watch Mercedes Crash the 2020 EQC Electric SUV

Watch Mercedes Crash the 2020 EQC Electric SUV

Mercedes wants to convince you that it’s as safe as it is silent!

The Mercedes-Benz EQC is the first all-electric model part of the EQ family, Mercedes’ range of vehicles designed from the get-go with electrification in mind. The EQC hasn’t yet reached third-party crash testers such as the EURO NCAP or the NHTSA, but the car apparently passed with flying colors the German automaker’s own internal crash tests.

Unveiled publically at this year’s Paris Motor Show, the EQC is Mercedes’ first bet for the new-generation EV market. It’s a compact luxury SUV, similar to the gas-powered GLC-Class, that will be on the market next year. Mercedes-Benz revealed that it already put the EQC up against a few rigid structures for some in-house evaluatory crash tests at the Mercedes-Benz Technology Center for Vehicle Safety (TFS).
