Every Tesla Model Currently On Sale in 2022

Tesla has changed the game when it comes to personal vehicle transportation

Tesla, as you may know, is the fastest growing automaker in the world over the last two decades and it’s the most successful new car manufacturer to come into the market since Hyundai which was founded in 1967. Tesla was just founded in 2003. With new innovative technologies coming out every day, there is literally a new “speed race” going on. Tesla isn’t just a one-hit wonder; the automaker’s got more than a handful of products in its lineup. Here’s a list of all of them:

Rendering: The Perfect Blend Between A Mazda RX-7 and Ford Focus RS

Rendering: The Perfect Blend Between A Mazda RX-7 and Ford Focus RS

Things get a little interesting when America meets Japan

It has been four years since the legendary hot-hatch from Ford, the Focus RS, exited its production in the U.S. But we still remember how bonkers it was for its sub-$45,000 pricetag: 350 horsepower four-pot, torque-vectoring AWD system, and a manual gearbox. It could be the most ferocious hot-hatch in its segment if it were in production today. But in the concept world, a modern Focus RS can be made to look like a JDM with the RE Amemiya-inspired RX-7 widebody kit. Here is an incredible example of the same, and the_kyza has carefully illustrated the concept with the idea to also swap the four-pot inside the Focus RS for an old-school Mazda rotary mill.

A New Leak Hints At the Unthinkable: xDrive AWD for the G87 BMW M2

A New Leak Hints At the Unthinkable: xDrive AWD for the G87 BMW M2

A BMW M2 with AWD might be coming out after all

Earlier this year, we reported that the next-generation 2023 BMW M2 is too fat and too heavy to be equipped with their M xDrive all-wheel drive (AWD) system. As the M2 migrates to the new Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform, after all, the compact performance coupe is expected to gain more weight. This latest leaked document, however, seems to contradict the statements made by BMW M’s engineers, because it reveals that an M2 with M xDrive is coming out after all.

Lucid Air vs Tesla Model S Plaid: Will The Tesla Flagship Sedan Finally Be Dethroned?

Lucid Air vs Tesla Model S Plaid: Will The Tesla Flagship Sedan Finally Be Dethroned?

Here’s how two of the world’s most powerful production cars compare to each other

The Lucid vs Tesla war is actually a lot deeper than one can imagine. Lucid is currently spearheaded by Peter Rawlinson, the man who is responsible for the Tesla Model S! So, in its essence, the Lucid Air can be considered as the Model S’ spiritual successor. The Tesla Model S has made a name for itself as a premium electric sedan and didn’t face stiff competition from any other electric car until the Lucid Air came out. That says a lot, doesn’t it? The Air has countered the Model S on almost all fronts; range, performance, features and specs, etc. Looks are subjective, so we’ll let you decide which one looks better. And, as for the pricing, the Air starts cheaper than the Model S, but goes well over the Tesla’s pricing. Now, given how the Air is spec’d pitting it against the standard Model S doesn’t seem fair. But, how does it compare to the Tesla Model S Plaid? Well, that’s what we will find out in this guide!

Remember The Toyota Yaris Sedan? Here's How It Looks Now

Remember The Toyota Yaris Sedan? Here’s How It Looks Now

Subcompact cars are dead in America, but they still live on elsewhere

Remember when subcompact cars were a perfect first car for American car buyers? Those days are long gone. Nowadays, small SUVs or compact sedans are your stepping stone into new car ownership. Toyota used to offer a subcompact sedan in the North American market with the Yaris sedan, which became a rebadged Mazda 2 before being discontinued. Over in Southeast Asia, a completely new Yaris sedan has just been unveiled, and it’s unlike anything this nameplate has seen before.

The Mercedes AMG One is as Complicated as it is Fast

Fitting a Formula One Engine into a Road Legal Car is Not That Easy

The Mercedes AMG One started life as the Project One, unveiled in 2017. Five years later, Mercedes has largely finished development of the hypercar after numerous delays due to the global pandemic, supply chain shortages, and the complex Formula One derived powertrain. And, all of this despite the fact that the car probably shouldn’t exist at all.

2023 Ford Bronco Raptor - Performance, Price, and Photos

2023 Ford Bronco Raptor - Performance, Price, and Photos

Ford’s dune-bashing desert runner gets the full Raptor treatment with upgraded off-road hardware and a V-6 heart

When the renewed Ford Bronco broke cover last year, it shook up the off-roader SUV segment, which Jeep has dominated for over two decades. With top-rated hardware and beefy looks, the new Bronco was a beast of a machine through and through. It was an all-new rig designed to take on the Wrangler head-on. Available in several flavors including a more consumer-friendly Bronco Sport, Ford offered a more off-road-oriented Sasquatch package for those folks wanting to venture far off the beaten track.

But just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Ford chose to apply the full-blown Raptor treatment to the Bronco. Unofficially dubbed the ’BRAPTOR’,the Bronco Raptor which made its debut earlier this year in January, does carry a price premium. The question is if the Bronco Raptor is worth that price premium and how exactly does it square up against the standard Bronco? Well, you’re about to find out.

Why a Compact Sports Car Is The Right Way Forward For MG

Why a Compact Sports Car Is The Right Way Forward For MG

A sports car lineup would make MG’s return absolute, inspire of the sensible range of cars currently it currently offers

UK, probably, has the largest number of defunct car manufacturers. Whether it’s due to poor management or inefficient internal politics on behalf of the government, is a different subject altogether. Sometimes, carmakers make a comeback, and MG is one such example. It was thanks to a Chinese company, SAIC, which acquired the British carmaker in 2008. While MG already offers a full lineup of budget-friendly SUVs and crossovers, including BEV and ICE-powered models, in the past, the marque was associated with its fun, lightweight sports cars. MG confirmed the production of an EV sports car, called the Cyberster. Here are a few reasons that would make an MG sports car lineup more feasible than you may think.

2023 Porsche Taycan GTS Sport Turismo - Performance, Price, and Photos

The Sport Turismo is only available in GTS Guise and is the Sportiest Taycan wagon currently on sale

Porsche made its foray into the world of mainstream electric cars with the Taycan sedan a couple of years ago and the model line-up has evolved quite a bit since then. They introduced a base model with a rear-wheel-drive variant and then went on to add some practical wagons in the form of the Sport Turismo and Cross-Turismo. Currently, you can choose from 14 different configurations of the Taycan.

While the Cross Turismo went on sale a while back, Porsche decided to expand the Taycan range with the GTS line, which broke cover at the L.A. Auto Show in November last year. This wagon ditches the body cladding and combines the practicality of the Taycan Cross Turismo with the driving capabilities of the standard Porsche Taycan. Also, a Porsche spokesperson confirmed to CarAndDriver that the Taycan Sport Turismo is currently only coming in GTS guise to the U.S. market.

The Lucid Air Stealth Is Brilliantly Evil

A more sinister appearance is what the Air needed!

Lucid Motors unveiled the Air back in 2020 as one of the models that will give Tesla a run for its money. It is not only the electric vehicle with the best range - 516 miles - but also the one with the fastest charging time: it adds up to 300 miles of charge in 20 minutes. Also, if you ask us, it is also one of the best-looking EVs at the moment. And, thanks to the addition of a new Stealth Look package, it will now look even better. The new option can be had with the Air Grand Touring Performance, the Air Grand Touring, and the Air Touring models, and it is priced from $6,000.

The Lotus Elise Could Live On, Maybe Even As The Toyota MR2

The Lotus Elise Could Live On, Maybe Even As The Toyota MR2

The death of the Lotus Elise could be an easier way for Toyota to finally bring back the MR2

As the automotive industry forces brands like Lotus to shift gears and find a new direction, amazing cars like the Elise, Exige, and Evora have been sent to the guillotine to make way for something new. Lotus sent the Exige and Elise off with a proper burial in way of a pair of “final editions” which was followed by news that the Evija is still on schedule and that the new car – the one that is essentially replacing all three of these now-buried models – known as the Emira, would be the very last gasoline-powered Lotus. Now, however, there’s some light at the end of the tunnel, at least for the Lotus Elise, anyway.

This 1,000-HP Ferrari F40 Competizione Is as Unique as it is Special

This 1,000-HP Ferrari F40 Competizione Is as Unique as it is Special

Produced between 1987 and 1992, the F40 is one of the most impressive supercars Ferrari ever produced. The car was so successful that although Ferrari planned to only build 400 units, consumer demand led Ferrari to build a total of 1,315 units. Even today, the F40 is a highly successful supercar, with most of them selling for millions if they cross the auction block. There is no doubt in our mind that this one-off F40 Competizione that is being privately sold by RM Sotheby’s will be no exception. The price is available on request, but it is for sure higher than 99% of the world’s population can afford.

TECHART Just Made the Porsche 911 GT3 Sizzling Hot

Sadly, there is no performance tuning

The 911 GT3, which serves as the GT3 race car’s homologation model, is capable enough to make the 911 Turbo S cry on the racetrack. However, the GT3 is known mainly for its handling capabilities and the glorious flat-six engine with a 9,000 RPM redline. The 992-gen 911 GT3 is the most potent iteration of the model and still packs a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six from its previous generation. Additionally, the current model GT3 implemented significant aesthetic changes that gave it a more modern feel while preserving its legacy. But what if you are unsatisfied with the looks and want to make your GT3 more visually distinguishable from the others? Worry no more because TECHART has launched the OEM-level carbon-fiber Aero kit and Clubsport upgrades for the Porsche 911 GT3.

New MR2-related information has cropped up, but don’t be so quick to rejoice

There has been talks about the Toyota MR2 making a comeback since 2018, but recent information from Toyota’s Australian arm may have hinted at the mid-engine Toyota finally making a comeback.

This 2015 Dodge Viper SRT is One of the Last True American Sportscars

This V-10-equipped beast has always been America’s pride against the Italians

The Viper moniker was the pride of America, as it was the country’s most potent and loved sportscar. First introduced in 1991 as a roadster, the Viper evolved as a true sportscar with a massive V-10 engine under its hood. Before Audi’s takeover, Lamborghini was a part of the Chrysler Corporation and helped to develop the V-10 engine. The Chevy Corvette had it all before the Viper came along. Still, it suddenly came under threat as the latter emerged as a more desirable sportscar with more performance. The SRT brand manufactured the fifth-gen Viper from 2013-2014, following a three-year hiatus due to its parent company’s bankruptcy. It’s been five years since this legendary sportscar left the industry. But if you miss it dearly, there is a 2015 iteration of the Viper which is up for auction on Bring a Trailer.
