Porsche’s future is going to be all-electric, and while the 911 will still be offered with internal-combustion engines, the 718 lineup is not going to share the same fate: starting in 2025 it will go will electric. However, it seems that Porsche is not ready to let the 718 go just yet, and it is preparing a hardcore version of the open-top 718. The model has been spotted many times before, but the prototype caught testing today on the back roads of Spain looks ready for production.
Update 8-10-2022: The 718 Boxster Spyder RS was spied with the top down for the first time, exposing the new Weissach RS seats.
2023 Rodin FZero Is A 224 MPH Track Weapon
Rodin Cars is a New Zealand-based car manufacturer specialized in building the "world’s very best maximum performance road and track cars." After being announced three years ago, the company’s new creation - the FZero - was finally "revealed" today. It is still in the development stages, but the specifications are pretty much final. In short, David Dicker, founder of Rodin Cars, has plans for the FZero to be the fastest car on earth.
This Could Be The Most Extreme (And Expensive) Porsche 911 Ever Built
Feuerbach Designworksis a relatively new company, so don’t feel bad if you never heard about it. It was founded in 2019 by Christopher Reitz, grandson of Ferdinand Porsche. Reitz has a long history with cars: he worked as Design Director for Alfa Romeo and Maserati and was Chief Designer for Nissan Europe and Fiat. So, what’s with the weird name of the company? Well, Feuerbach is the name of the street in Stuttgart, Germany where Porsche started its business.
Feuerbach is determined to become a name on the market by building "ultra-performance, hand-built, ultra-low volume sporting road supercars," and the Feuerbach Porsche GTL Coupe is the first of them. It will be built in limited numbers, and it won’t come cheap.
Here’s Why The Lexus LFA’s Successor Will Not Live Up To The Name
By now, it’s clear that Toyota and Lexus have big plans for their “carbon-neutral” future. A few months ago, the Japanese company unveiled over 15 new concepts, under both brands, which include hybrids and fully-electric vehicles. While each of the studies brings something to the table, it is the Lexus EV Supersport that captured our attention the most as it is going to be the spiritual successor to the Lexus LFA. And, there lies the problem. While Lexus’s first electric sports car looks and sounds promising (so far), we already see a couple of problems with the LFA’s all-electric successor.
This Custom-Tuned Aventador SVJ Puts Every Other Lamborghini to Shame
If you like Lamborghini supercars, you might know a thing or two about Underground Racing. If you don’t, let us shine some light on the subject. Underground Racing is a U.S.-based tuning company responsible for creating the world’s fastest and most powerful Lamborghinis. Pretty much all its models deliver way over 1,000 horsepower - with quite a few of them easily going above 2,000. As an example, this Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. delivers 759 horsepower from the factory, but the tuner took the final output up to an impressive 2,000 horsepower!
2023 Kia Telluride - Performance, Price, and Photos
The 2023 KIA Telluride made its debut at the New York International Auto Show along with the Hyundai Palisade. Given the Telluride’s success and popularity since it first hit the road back in 2019, Kia decided not to deviate too far from the equation that has made it among the best-selling three-row SUVs in the U.S.
This mid-cycle facelift brings a rugged makeover to the exterior styling, improved onboard technology along with a plethora of driver assistance features. Here’s what’s new on the Kia Telluride for the 2023 model year.
The Original Ford F-150 SVT Lightning - The Unsung Martyr Of The ’90s
Back in the day, automakers like Dodge, Chevy, and GMC, tried to develop pickup trucks that were more than their towing and payload prowess. They came up with performance versions of their respective trucks, but could not break this perception people had about trucks being straight-line sprinters and failed to create a niche. Ford, too, threw its hat into the ring with a product called the Lightning. The Lightning stayed around for a decade before going down the same way as its counterparts. But, does that mean it was a bad truck? No, sir!
With the moniker being resurrected again, we thought it would be a good time to remember the original truck and remind you that the legendary nameplate is more than just a guest star in the Fast and Furious movie or Ford’s first electric truck, the 2022 F-150 Lightning.
Alfa Romeo Refuses to Change its Style Through Electrification
The EV-olution makes cars look different from what they used to, with the chunky intake grille at the front and sporty exhaust tips at the rear slowly becoming a thing of the past. A perfect example would be the new EQ series from Mercedes-Benz. They have an entirely distinct look compared to current ICE-powered cars. In an interview with TopGear, Alfa Romeo’s design chief confirmed that the Italian automaker would keep its basic design principles for its future EVs. He thinks “looking electric for the sake of it doesn’t make any sense.”
Rumor: A New BMW 8 Series With X5 Bones?
BMW has always had its unique qualities, mostly the combinations of German build quality and the driving thrill built into their cars right from the development stage. However, when the current 8 Series debuted in 2018, it was a bit left field. By that point, SUVs were closing in on being the most popular kind of new car, and large, luxury coupes were going out of style, so the 8 Series was just a few years too late and has struggled ever since. Now,following a facelift for the 2023 model year, BMW may be considering reinvigorating the 8-series range, but not in that way you would think, or hope.
Every Tesla Model Currently On Sale in 2022
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
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
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?
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!
