Ford Could Be Working on An Electric Bronco, But When Will We See It?
There are a ton of speculations out there about famous products and their future. The new Ford Bronco hasn’t even settled in yet, but there were talks about its future already. While some prefer having discussions amongst their peers, some folks decide to question the head of the company about it. A Twitter user questioned Ford’s President and CEO, Jim Farley, why there’s no Bronco EV yet and the boss hinted that there is one already in the works.
The Ford Bronco Has A Little More Heart Than Expected
Ford denied us the pleasure of driving a powerful V-8 Bronco, but it looks like the automaker is covering it up in different ways. Or, another way to look at it is Ford is rewarding the customers for taking longer than expected to deliver the Bronco. What the reward is, you ask? Well, you will be getting more power in your Bronco than the initial specs. This will be the case with both, the four-pot and the V-6 mills. Exciting news, isn’t it?
Porsche’s Boxster EV Will Force Audi And BMW To Step Up Their Game
We already know that the Porsche 911 will most likely be the last of the brand’s cars to transition into an electric vehicle, and rightfully so, I might add. However, as of today, there aren’t any real electric sports cars on the market. I suppose you could argue that the new Tesla Roadster is a sports car, but for the sake of argument Tesla kind of stands on its own and who knows when the Roadster will really make production. Then you’ve got cars like the Audi E-Tron GT and its sister the Porsche Taycan, and while they are sporty and quick, it doesn’t exactly fit the sports car segment like a Porsche 718, Audi TT, or even the BMW Z4 and Toyota Supra twins. Oddly enough, there’s little official chatter of any cars in this segment going electric. Well, until now that is.
Top 5 Best Alternators 2021
In the vehicle’s engine bay right next to the battery is an Alternator, one of the key components in the vehicle’s electrical system. As you drive, the alternator supplies the electrical power to both, recharge the battery, and supply power to your in-car electronics such as ignition system, car audio, vehicle accessories, A/C, and heater. If you are looking for the best alternators for your car or truck, we have reviewed the top 5 best alternators available today to assist you in making the right choice.
The Ferrari Portofino M – Taking On The Heavy Hitters With Italian Attitude
Despite very similar looks, the same engine, and similar pricing, Ferrari is cutthroat serious that the Portofino (and the new Portofino M) is not just a convertible version of the Roma. We could probably argue this point all day long, but we’re not here to argue today. Instead, we’re here to talk about why the Ferrari Portofino exists, and if you’re thinking that it’s to bring back customers of the Ferrari California and California T, then you’re only half right. So, what’s the Portofino M’s primary purpose then?
Best Truck Mufflers for Trucks in 2021
Mufflers are an important part of any truck’s exhaust system. Designed to reduce the noise produced by the engine, their catalytic converter also reduces the emission of chemical pollution. There’s more to a muffler as choosing a new muffler is an essential way to maximize your power and efficiency apart from altering the sound. Some aftermarket mufflers offer a deep, aggressive growl, while others will make your truck as quiet as physically possible.
In this article, we’ll explain to you everything you need to know about mufflers, including how they work and their different styles and types available. This piece provides a list of the Top 3 best mufflers of 2021, with reviews!
A Legendary Collection Of Cars Is Heading to Auction And Chris Harris Has the Inside Info You Need
Collecting cars is a relatively new YouTube channel that focuses on quality rather than quantity. When you click on the video and Chris Harris appears in it, you know it’s going to be some epic content. Although the man doesn’t need much introduction, the Leonard Collection definitely does. There’s an obvious focus on significant cars, most of which are different versions and generations of the Porsche 911.
Ford Will Showcase The 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning On May 19 - Are You Ready?
It’s official. The upcoming electric Ford F-150 will be called F-150 Lightning and it will be revealed on May 19. This the automaker’s second EV, and it has used a legendary moniker in both cases. After slapping the Mach-E with the Mustang badge, Ford has now brought back the performance truck ’Lightning’ badge from the 90s and early 2000s to use it on the electrified truck.
Enjoy This 2015 Dodge Viper’s Half-Mile Speed Test
Running the half-mile gives us a good idea of a car’s acceleration as well as its aerodynamic capabilities. Although we are used to seeing highly modified vehicles (some with over 2,000 horsepower), it’s more interesting to see what a can do in its factory state. Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds is a place where EPA ratings and other data are being accumulated through testing. In this case, a 2015 Dodge Viper is the guest of honor.
A Lexus IS-F With A Twin-Turbo V-8? It Could Be A Thing
Even though the world is moving towards electrification and cleaner mobility, there is a surge in demand for V-8s lately and automakers are more than happy to tap into this emotional need of the consumers. This is perhaps one final hoorah before V-8s fade away into oblivion forever. Toyota, however, seemed to be heading away from eight-cylinder engines. Forget about building new ones, the company was rumored to even ditch its existing V-8s – case in point, Toyota Tundra. But, new developments have shown that Toyota might come up with a new V-8 after all.
GR86.org has reported that the Japanese automaker filed a patent for a twin-turbo engine that could go into the Lexus line of performance cars. Or, even the Toyota Tundra, for that matter.
The Porsche Macan EV Might Not Be A Macan At All
Things escalated quickly between 2019 and 2020 over at Porsche, with the former bring news that the 2021 Porsche Macan will only be offered with an all-electric drivetrain. Of course, 2021 is here, and guess what? The electric Macan doesn’t even exist outside of Porsche’s walls. That’s because in early 2020, we learned that Porsche was thinking about a “double Macan” strategy in which it will update the current-gen Macan to sell alongside the next-gen electric Macan. It’s good news for those that don’t want to make the transition to electric go juice, but it also means the next-gen Macan had to be delayed. Now we’ve learned something new, and it seems that the Macan EV might not be a Macan at all. Wait… what?
How Do The BMW M550i and the M5 Competition Fare Against a 1000-Horsepower M5?
Like the 3 Series, the BMW 5 Series also comes in various iterations to cater to the needs of all kinds of customers. From the plush and luxurious core models, to the fuel-efficient electrified trim, to the performance trims; the 5 Series has it all. Carwow brought the two performance models, the M5 Competition and the M550i on a drag strip for a series of drag races, rolling races, and brake tests. These two had another M5 giving them company, but it was tuned to make 1,000 horses and over 800 pound-feet of torque. We obviously know who the winner here is, but can the M550i trump the more powerful M5 Competition to take the second place?
2022 Genesis G70 Shooting Brake
Recent footage from the Nurburgring indicates that the 2022 Genesis G70 will also be offered as a shooting brake. Yet another proof of the Korean brand’s continuous expansion is the more practical version of the G70, which is almost ready for debut. We know this because the car has been spotted on numerous occasions, so a debut should be just around the corner. The sedan version of the car is already a formidable competitor. When the G70 Shooting Brake hits the market, it will compete with the VW Arteon Shooting Brake.
The Electric 718 Boxster Is Coming To Lead Porsche Into A New Era of Sports Cars
Electrification is a big deal and, eventually, every sports car that we know and love will lug around battery packs and motors instead of gas tanks and engines. It is, quite literally, an inevitability. That’s why rumors that the Porsche 718 is going electric make a lot of sense despite being largely unfounded. After all, it is the next logical step after the Taycan’s success since the 911 will be the last model of Porsche’s lineup to make the transition. We recently learned that Porsche decision-makers were weighing options on what to do with the next-gen 718, and it looks like a decision has been made, as new reports say an electric Porsche Boxster Concept is about to be revealed!
It’s Amazing What You’ll Find In The Peterson Museum Alone At Night
The Hoonigans YouTube channel is the place to go if you are looking to see some of the most interesting and madly-modified vehicles, as well as some truly crazy stunts. This video is a bit different, however, as it takes us into the Peterson Automotive Museum. The place is home to well over 100 cars and some of the most unique ones are held in “The Vault”. These include some of the first vehicles ever made, movie cars, “001” chassis cars (the first of their kind), as well as some awesome concept cars.
Jay Leno Drives All The Cool Cars, Like This 1971 Marcos GT
When we talk about well-styled classic British sports cars, the first one to come to mind is usually the Jaguar E-Type. Then there are the lightweight cars like the MGB, Triumph Spitfire, and Austin Healey. The Marcos GT is one of those “other” cars that are slightly more obscure and not quite as well-known to most. Luckily, Jay Leno once again does a great job at introducing us to what he believes is “the most unusual and prettiest sports car of all time”, and he’s not alone.
Can The New VW Golf R Beat The Audi RS6 Avant On A Drag Strip
The RS6 Avant needs no introduction. It is arguably the hottest daily driver that offers a perfect blend of performance and practicality. ‘Archie Hamilton Racing’ bought the wagon on a drag strip to pit it against Volkswagen’s reinvigorated hot hatch, the Golf R. It comes with improved power outputs, a new all-wheel-drive system, torque vectoring, front and rear locking differentials, and launch control, amongst other things. With all these accolades, can the four-pot turbocharged hatch beat the twin-turbo V-8 super wagon in straight-line races?
The Lotus Elise Could Live On, Maybe Even As The Toyota 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.
Affordable Ferraris That Could Make Great Future Investments
Whether you are a car enthusiast or not, it’s common knowledge that owning a Ferrari signifies certain success in life. Of course, owning a Ferrari comes at a great financial cost (and sometimes more, if your wife does not approve), so it’s better to make sure you can afford one in the first place, before taking the leap. That said, even Ferraris aren’t safe from depreciation, unless they are highly exclusive, and these few models, listed below, are a perfect example.
Maintenance costs can still be sinfully expensive, but on the plus side, some of these cars have already bottomed out in terms of price, which means they could be a good investment in the long run.
The 1935 Voisin C25 Aerodyne Is The Coolest Car You Probably Didn’t Know About
The automotive industry had many ups and downs since the automobile became popular in the 1900s. The first major downturn happened in the late 1920s when The Great Depression hit the world. In the United States, the economic depression put many luxury carmakers out of business. In Europe, however, some low-output companies survived, although they eventually went bankrupt after World War II. One such carmaker is Voisin, which was founded by aviation pioneer Gabriel Voisin. This French company produced only a handful of automobiles in the 1920 and 1930s, with the most iconic being the C25 Aerodyne.
A Decade Apart: Manual 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S vs. 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera S
With every new 911 generation, Porsche doesn’t forget to mention that it is the best 911 to date and equally important, the best 911 it can be at the moment of launch. This, however, doesn’t make past-gen 911s weak, for the simple reason that Porsche wholeheartedly invest all its know-how into its core sportscar, regardless of the age they came to be.
So when Throttle House dropped a video that compares the current 2020 911 to the 2010 911, our interest piqued.
Ferrari Testarossa Explained - How it Was an Amazing 23-Year-Long Mistake
The Testarossa is one of the most beloved Ferrari models and that’s because of the way it looks. The increasingly wider rear fenders, the big strakes on the doors, and the cleanly cut front fascia gave it a unique look among the wedge-shaped cars of the era.
Its appearance in the Miami Vice TV series also contributed to its fame. However, the Testarossa wasn’t the car most enthusiasts thought it was. It was more of an experimental vehicle born out of customer complaints about its predecessor. It was a mistake that Ferrari promptly corrected by returning to front-engined V-12 cars in the 1990s, but it was an amazing car. The latest video from ISSIMI explains just that.
