An Electric Dragster Has Finally Broken the 200-MPH Barrier

An Electric Dragster Has Finally Broken the 200-MPH Barrier

Steve Huff is the new speed king of electric dragsters

Electric cars are the future or, at the very least, part of the future, whether we like it or not, so all of us at TopSpeed get properly excited when we hear of an EV that managed to break any sort of speed or acceleration record because, let’s face it, that’s way cooler than hearing about which EV can boast with a 400-mile range.

Now, the talk of the town is Current Technology’s insane 1,950 horsepower electric dragster, the first of its kind to surpass the 200 mph barrier.

The Latest Report on the 2021 Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ Will Piss You Off

The Latest Report on the 2021 Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ Will Piss You Off

As it turns out, almost nothing that we’ve heard about either next-gen car has been true

We’ve been talking about the next-gen Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ since they were confirmed back in February 2019. A year after that confirmation, we learned that the 86 would get a new name, would feature a turbocharged Subaru engine, and would shift into premium territory. More recently, in March of 2020, a new leak hinted that the 2021 Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ would be making their debut soon. A new report, however, has expressed that a lot of what we’ve learned isn’t true at all, and that’s very bad news for the next-gen BRZ and 86.

Immerse Yourself in the Heaven That Is the Porsche 919 Hybrid Testing at Spa

Immerse Yourself in the Heaven That Is the Porsche 919 Hybrid Testing at Spa

If you think testing a multiple Le Mans winner in the wet at Belgium’s GP track is scary you’d be bang on the money

Porsche came back to top-level sports car endurance racing in 2014 with the 919 Hybrid, a 900 horsepower beast powered by the combination between a V-4, turbocharged, 2.0-liter engine and an electric generator unit sending power to the front axle. Basically, when the batteries were fully loaded and giving all the power to the front axle, with the traditional engine powering the back axle, the 919 was AWD car but not just any AWD car - one that managed to win Le Mans three times on the trot, doubling that with a trifecta of World Endurance Championship titles.

This Rendering of a 993-Gen Porsche 911 Safari Will Make You Question Your Automotive Beliefs

We know you like it in secret

Old Porsche 911s turned rally cars are not a novelty. We’ve seen a couple of them over the years and all we can say is that our garages wouldn’t mind one. Actually, Porsche built such contraptions in the early 1970s, after it got out of racing in the WRC, and while there are no such plans for the future, here’s a batch of 993-based 911 ’Safari’ renders that might turn into reality should someone crazy enough see them.

This Modern Interpretation of the Dodge Deora Concept Just Made the Future Chevy El Camino Weap in Fear

This Modern Interpretation of the Dodge Deora Concept Just Made the Future Chevy El Camino Weap in Fear

Is this the cool, electric pickup truck we deserve?

Unveiled in 1967, the Dodge Deora is one of the craziest concept cars of the 1960s. Based on the Dodge A100 pickup, the Deora was built by brothers Mike and Larry Alexander and showcased at the 1967 Detroit Autorama, where it won no fewer than nine awards. Chrysler liked the design so much that it leased the truck for two years to display alongside its factory concept cars. The Deora inspired a Hot Wheels model car and resurfaced in the early 2000s when it was restored. The Deora was auctioned off for $324,500 in 2009. More than ten years later, the Deora was reimagined as a modern concept car.

A New Video Showcases Every Aspect of the 2021 Cadillac Escalade

A New Video Showcases Every Aspect of the 2021 Cadillac Escalade

The 2021 model is a big improvement over the one it replaces

The Cadillac Escalade has had a roller coaster ride its whole life. The first Escalade was introduced in 1998 and looked like a ripped-off version of the GMC Yukon Denali. Fortunately, GM and Cadillac improved things within a couple of years and launched a much different version with its own identity. Since then, the Escalade has been hitting rough patches all along. The 2021 model, that marks the fifth generation of the Escalade, and Cadillac has taken things up a notch in almost all aspects. It has the pizzazz and desirability quotient that the previous iterations didn’t.

A lot of details are splurging as we are approaching closer to the luxurious SUV’s release. Here’s a video by TheStraightPipes that covers the SUV in a highly detailed manner. This is what the folks from the channel highlighted about the 2021 Escalade.

2020 Lexus RX450hL - Driven

2020 Lexus RX450hL - Driven

We tested the 2020 Lexus RX 450hL — the RX model with the longest name

The Lexus RX invented the luxury crossover. It invented the luxury hybrid. And it’s consistently America’s best-selling luxury SUV. That’s why the current-generation RX’s shortcomings have been so surprising. It debuted in 2016 with polarizing styling, limited cargo space, no available third-row seat, cumbersome controls, and missing infotainment features.

At least based on the sales numbers, buyers registered no objections. They either embraced or accepted the RX for what it is, continuing to be drawn to its quiet ride, rich leather, and promise of headache-free reliability. But Lexus has steadily improved the vehicle since that 2016 debut. It added an extended-length three-row model for the 2018 model year, known as the RX L. Now, the 2020 RX features an upgraded infotainment system and tweaks to the styling and suspension.

This Modified Suzuki Jimny Can Swim Too

It is one step away from becoming a Triathlon champion

The Jimny is a capable off-roader and it has proven its mettle time and again. However, a car kit maker that goes by the name ‘Dutton’ has transformed this little off-roader into an amphibious vehicle called the Dutton Surf. Although a lot of such attempts have been made in the past, what makes the Dutton kit so special is its simplicity. This kit doesn’t involve a lot of complications and it is fairly easy to maneuver it in water. Carfection has posted a video on its channel highlighting the features of the Dutton Surf.
