Ferrari Is Still Unsure of How to Transition into an EV Company

Ferrari Is Still Unsure of How to Transition into an EV Company

Ferrari’s traditional approach to building cars keeps enthusiasts happy, but also postpones the brand’s transition towards making high-performance EV models

Ferrari is, probably, the automotive brand that most begrudgingly made the transition to electrification and SUVs. The Italian sports car manufacturer is still behind on the electrification front compared to most other manufacturers and is yet to announce definite plans for a fully-electric model. Ferrari’s first step towards electrification began with the 2013 LaFerrari, which featured a hybrid powertrain revolving around a V-12, but there are a few reasons why the Maranello-based carmaker is yet to make a transition.

Gordon Murray is About to Move Beyond Sports Cars, And Things Could Get Weird

One of them is for a major brand

The future will be all about electrification - there is no doubt about that. From the smallest automakers to the largest, everyone is focusing on developing and preparing for the electric. Even makers that we never thought would go electric have announced plans to drop large, V-8, V-10, and V-12 engines in favor of electric powertrains. And so will Gordon Murray - the maker famous for its V-12-powered T.33. The company announced it has two new electric SUVs in development, but that doesn’t mean it’s straying too far from its roots.

Jaguar's Latest Plans Prove that Electric "Sports" SUVs are the Future

Jaguar’s Latest Plans Prove that Electric "Sports" SUVs are the Future

The first model should arrive in 2025

The Covid pandemic affected Jaguar sales very bad: in 2020 alone sales were down 13.6% when compared to the previous year. In fact, right now, the company’s lineup includes only five models, three of which are SUVs. Things will continue the same in the future, but on an all-electrical level. Jaguar plans to launch three new electric SUVs in the next few years, with pricing for the cheapest starting at £100,000 ($121,000 at the current exchange rates) - a price that will bring the brand into Bentley territory. Jaguar hopes to sell around 50,000-60,000 units a year, significantly increasing the sales figures of the brand.

Dodge's Electric Muscle Car Officially Coming in August

Dodge’s Electric Muscle Car Officially Coming in August

Dodge Speed Week will bid farewell to the Charger and Challenger while opening the door to electrified muscle

Dodge is known as being the most “against the grain” car company and you only need to see their bonkers, supercharged V-8 models to see it’s true. However, even Chrysler is forced to move with the times, and the company’s transition to electric powertrains is already in motion. With that in mind, Dodge has big plans for the upcoming, 2022 Woodward Dream Cruise, in an event known as the Dodge Speed Week. Over a few days, Dodge will announce three models that will shed light on the brand’s future plans.

Porsche is hard at work on the more track-focused Porsche 911 GT3 RS (992)

With the “regular” 911 (992) GT3 out and official, all eyes are now headed towards the GT3 RS. As expected, the more hardcore version of the already hardcore GT3 will feature more of everything - except for the weight, of which it will have less. The most important thing is that the latest most track-focused normally-aspirated 911 is underway, and here’s what we can expect.

Updated 6-21-2022: The Porsche 911 GT3 RS has been spied one last time prior to its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Check out the spy shots below!

We should see the official car in the next few months

Resistance is Futile: McLaren Forced by Rivals to Enter the Electric Crossover Segment

Resistance is Futile: McLaren Forced by Rivals to Enter the Electric Crossover Segment

It won’t happen until sometime in 2030

SUVs and crossovers sales are sky rocketing. For example, in 2021 Porsche delivered a total of 300,000 examples of the Macan and Cayenne but only 38,644 examples of the iconic 911 sports car. For Lamborghini, the recently launched Urus is a hit with a total of 5,021 units sold in 2021 - almost double the sales of the Huracan. Also, for Aston Martin the DBX sales doubled in 2021, up to a total of 6,182 units - about half of all Aston Martin global sales in the same period.

In a world where everyone goes for big cars, trying to keep exclusivity over volume and profit is going to be very difficult, so McLaren will have no other option than to follow the trend.

You Could Go Months Without Charging The Lightyear 0 Electric Car

This $260,000+ solar-powered EV is built to be efficient but is no speed maestro

If you are an EV collector or someone who wants to try out new EV technologies at any price, there is good news for you.

The Upcoming 2023 BMW M2 Is Too Fat For AWD

You’re out of luck if you want your M2 with AWD grip

The 2023 BMW M2 is upon us. As a matter of fact, the German luxury automaker already began teasing the M2 as it went through rigorous track testing at Salzburgring in Austria. Its launch is scheduled for October, with the M2 hitting showrooms by April 2023. This got us wondering whether the M2 will benefit from the brand’s M xDrive all-wheel drive (AWD) system, just like the M3 and M4, but unfortunately, that won’t happen for the M2.

Olymp Is The New European Car Brand That Comes to Challenge Tesla and Volkswagen

Austrian start-up Olymp joins the EV bandwagon and promisses to give established carmakers a proper fight; explores hydrogen as a viable alternative

While start-up manufacturers are an increasingly common sight in the modern-day automotive industry, those are usually limited to China and the US. A case in point is Chinese carmakers like Haval and Geely, which are starting to expand to other continents, or American start-ups like Rivian and Lucid, which follow in the footsteps of Tesla. Now, there is another start-up company that proves Europe still has something new to offer on the EV front. It’s called Olymp and, despite the name, it’s an Austrian company that wants to challenge the status quo.

Everything We Know About The 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor R

Everything We Know About The 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor R

The Ford Raptor R needs to be a pitch-perfect product to go up against the Ram 1500 TRX

When the Ram TRX came out back in 2020, it was touted as a Raptor-killer. Everyone patiently waited for the third-gen Ford F-150 Raptor to arrive, which took longer than anticipated since the 14th-gen 2021 F-150 was out for quite some time. The anticipation was because the TRX had the one major thing the F-150 Raptor didn’t – a V-8 engine. When the third-gen F-150 Raptor was finally revealed, it still didn’t feature a V-8. But, little did anyone know that the Raptor with a V-8 was in the reckoning, and, in fact, the Blue Oval announced it at the very same event

As it turns out, Ford decided to branch it out as a standalone model called the F-150 Raptor R. The highlight – obviously, the V-8! It’s been about 15 months since this news broke. With the launch expected sometime in 2022, here’s all we know about the upcoming F-150 Raptor R V-8!

2022 BMW M4 - Performance, Price, and Photos

2022 BMW M4 - Performance, Price, and Photos

With top-notch hardware and technology, the current M4 range blitzes past its competition in style

The BMW 4 Series and M4 were redesigned from the ground up for the 2021 model year. Now in its second generation, the M4 model-line up has evolved a lot to include a wide array of options with something for everyone. For that thoroughbred analog driving experience, BMW still has a six-speed manual option.

But if you want to keep up with the times and want to exploit that M-Tuned heart, then you’ve got a trusty eight-speed ZF automatic on tap that offers lightning-fast shifts. Also, for the first time ever, BMW offers xDrive, which is BMW’s AWD along with the option of a convertible on the top-spec model. Let’s take a closer look at the 2022 BMW M4 range.

Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Ferrari SF90 Versione Speciale

It should pack more power than the SF90 and deliver improved driving dynamics

Ferrari has been testing a hardcore version of the SF90 Stradale for about a month now - at least from what we know. The first prototype was caught testing back in May around Maranello, and it seems that the Italian company is now continuing its testing session at a much higher altitude. A prototype of the SF90 Versione Speciale and a very strange-looking mule of the Ferrari Daytona SP3 were caught testing in the Alps at an altitude of approximately 2500 meters.
