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

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.

The Corvette E-Ray has never been spied before, but the company has been working on it for a very long time. The fact that GM trademarked the ‘E-Ray’ name back in 2015 shows that the automaker has had it in its plans for the better part of the last decade. Fast forward to the present day, the automaker is still tight-lipped about it, but it has been spotted testing at the Nurburgring. If you had even an ounce of doubt, this proves that the car is certainly not a myth.

2023 Aston Martin DB6 Remastered By Lunaz
While it may be true that the Aston Martin DB6 has never enjoyed the same success or reputation level as the DB5, it was still a very impressive car. It offered improved aerodynamic and specifications compared to the DB5 and was offered in both coupe and convertible form. The problem with the DB6 is of course its age.

For the right money - and we are talking about $1 million - the company will restore, re-engineer, and electrify your DB6.
8 Amazing Things about the Polestar 2
Once Volvo’s version of the AMG, Polestar has made a name for itself as the new EV division for Volvo. The first Polestar showed the market what a sports EV sedan should look like, and the new one is not any different.

At $47,200, it’s cheap (for an EV) and a clean-cut looker, but the latest iteration of the Polestar is not just a pretty-faced environmental ambassador.
The Future Of Formula One May Involve Two-Stroke Engines

Currently, Formula One cars are using the same 1.6-liter, DOHC, 90-degree, turbocharged V-6 engines that make around 1,050 horsepower. Although the current engines will be used until 2025, they might be replaced by two-stroke units, if the proposal is approved.
