Modern Porsche 935 attacks Monza Circuit

It’s just as mesmerizing to look at when it’s actually moving

Porsche’s year-long anniversary party turned up an unexpected guest in the Porsche 935.

Watch a Tesla-Powered 2006 Honda S2000 Run a 10-Second Quarter Mile

Watch a Tesla-Powered 2006 Honda S2000 Run a 10-Second Quarter Mile

With such performance on tap, few can miss the high-revving Honda 2.0-liter

If you’re still dreaming of the Honda S2000’s amazing 100-horsepower/liter figure that was an industry benchmark in the sports car class for years, there’s now a new benchmark, at least in the S2000 world. As expected, it’s highly modified but in an unusual way: it sports the drivetrain from a Tesla Model S P100D.

Discontinued back in 2009, the S2000 remained the backbone of many modified rides over the years. This white example, nicknamed "Model S2000", is one of the raddest yet. It’s employing parts from the Tesla Model S and the Chevrolet Volt to tear up the dragstrip and seamlessly tick a quarter-mile time of 10.24 without much hassle. And that’s only the beginning.

Keep on reading to learn more about this cool S2000 EV.

Tesla Offers New Mid Range Model 3 To Tempt EV Buyers, But Base Trim Buyers Might Be Out Of Luck

The Fed Tax Credit is going away, so what’s it mean for all those reservations?

A new Model 3 is now available to order. It’s called the “Mid Range,” and it offers 260 miles per charge, a top speed of 125 mph, and a 0-to-60 mph time of 5.6 seconds, all for $45,000. Factor in the $7,500 Federal Tax Credit and $4,300 in average fuel savings, and the final price comes to $33,200, which makes it quite tempting for those looking to live the Tesla lifestyle without dropping a ton of coin. However, with the base Model 3 not hitting production until next year and the Federal Tax Credit on its way out the door, will the Mid Range be the best Tesla you can buy?

An Audi E-tron GT With Porsche Tech To Take On The Model S 100D?

The Audi E-tron GT is coming, and it will, by all accounts, be epic. Ever since Tesla made such glorious strides in the electric car fandom, the car world has been waiting for the rest of the big automakers to catch up. With the introduction of numerous expensive electric SUVs in the past couple of years, the car community as a whole gained the much needed electric car boost.

Siegfried Pint, Head of Development for Electric Drive at Audi, said that the new car is “steered towards performance.”

Sorry Folks, Ford Has No Plans to Bring the 2019 Ranger Raptor to U.S. Roads

Sorry Folks, Ford Has No Plans to Bring the 2019 Ranger Raptor to U.S. Roads

The Ranger Raptor Will Not Come To The U.S. So Be Sad

While I did write extensively about the possible Ford Ranger Raptor Diesel reaching the U.S., it seems that Ford doesn’t have any plans to introduce theRanger Raptor to the free world. In his talk with Hermann Salenbauch, Ford Performance Director, Autoblog journalists found out that the Raptor “was really developed for locations where the F-150 isn’t available or popular so that all regions could have a Raptor.”

Obviously, reading between the lines shows that the Ranger Raptor isn’t actually coming to the U.S.

New Patent Application Signals the Imminent Introduction of a Third Chevy FNR futuristic Concept

New Patent Application Signals the Imminent Introduction of a Third Chevy FNR futuristic Concept

The first concept to use the "FNR" name was a doozy

General Motors has renewed its patent for the name “FNR” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, suggesting that neither the General nor Chevrolet — the brand that used the name on a pair of concept vehicles — are done using the moniker. There’s no word yet on when Chevrolet plans to use the name again, but given its history, it could be used on a new concept that will debut somewhere down the road. The USPTO has yet to grant the patent renewal to GM, though it could only be a matter of time before it does.

Skoda says chances of seeing one sold outside of China are zero

Skoda unveiled the Kodiaq GT, a mid-size crossover SUV with sportier styling that will only be available in China. The 7-speed DSG gearbox will be standard and, judging by the leaked interior shots, Skoda is targeting a wealthier clientele with this new model.

Czech automaker Skoda, part of the VAG Group, has been on a roll lately. They barely took the wraps off the menacing Kodiaq vRS that claims to be the fastest ever seven-seater SUV to lap the Nurburgring-Nordschleife. Now, they’re back with a new model, the Kodiaq GT, Skoda’s first Coupe SUV.

It features the same sloped rear window like the ’creator’ of this niche, BMW’s X6, but, unlike the Bimmer, you won’t be able to get it unless you live in China.
