The Oldsmobile F88 Is What The C1 Corvette Should Have Been From The Start

The Oldsmobile F88 Is What The C1 Corvette Should Have Been From The Start

The first Chevrolet Corvette did not come with a V-8. Oldsmobile changed that by introducing the F88

The story of the Chevrolet Corvette started back in 1953, with the introduction of the C1. Although America’s sports car is known for its potent V-8 engines, the earliest production examples started with the anemic Blue Flame – a 3.9-liter (235 cu in) inline-six that made 150 horsepower and 223 pound-feet (302 Nm). And while, eventually, they put a V-8 in it, it was Oldsmobile that beat Chevrolet to it by making their own version of the Corvette called the Oldsmobile F-88.

The 2026 Lotus Elise Will Prove Electric Drive Is Better

The 2026 Lotus Elise Will Prove Electric Drive Is Better

The Lotus Elise’s successor will have at least double the power of any Elise that came before it

The Lotus Emira is billed as the brand’s very last fuel-powered vehicle, marking the end of its gas-powered lineup forever. We knew this was the case early on as right around the time it was launched, the company also told us that the Elise, Exige, and Evora were officially being sent to the guillotine. It was a bittersweet revelation that we all knew was coming but really didn’t think it was going to happen so fast. Since then, and even more so after the launch of the Emira, we’ve all wondered what would happen next. Will there be a successor to any of Lotus’ legacy models? Is the brand’s once most important model – the Elise – really gone forever? Well, now we know that, at the very least, it might not be over for the Elise quite yet.

This is Probably The Strangest Toyota MR2 You’ve Ever Seen

Is this rare, mid-engine, Japanese sports car worth the asking price?

Motor1 recently covered a VM180 Zagato – one of only 100 made – that was auctioned off in Japan.

2022 Caterham Seven 170

2022 Caterham Seven 170

Somehow, the Caterham Seven 170 is lighter than ever and boasts a very impr

When Caterham launched the Seven 160 back in 2013 everyone was impressed by its weight: 490 kilos (or about 1,080 pounds). Even if it only delivered 80 horsepower, its power-to-weight ratio was set at 163 bhp per ton. When you think that back in 2013 cars like Hennessey Venom GT had a power-to-weight ratio of about 1230 bhp-per-tone, the 160 may not look that impressive. But, for a tiny car, it was more than enough.

Now Caterham came with an even lighter successor for the 160. The new Seven 170 weighs only 440 kilos (970 pounds) and has a power-to-weight ratio in excess of 170 bhp-per-ton!
