Jaguar’s three greatest designs by Frank Stephenson; the E-Type is not on the List
Automotive designer Frank Stephenson uses his YouTube channel to provide competent judgments and interesting ideas that help expand our knowledge on aesthetics and car design. In his latest video, he discusses the three models from one of my favorite car brands of all time, Jaguar.
This Miniature Toyota Mirai Is UK’s First Hydrogen-Powered RC Car
Toyota is proud of the achievements it has made when it comes to its hydrogen tech. Just over a week ago, the Toyota Mirai achieved a Guinness World Record by driving for 845 miles—the furthest distance ever traveled by a fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) on just a single tank of hydrogen. Now though, Toyota is scaling down its hydrogen fuel cell technology, and we mean that quite literally.
This Model T and its Siblings Are Built By the Same Company Behind the Apple iPhone
Cars are getting more and more advanced every year, leaving them more dependent on electronics and technology. With this increasingly blurry line dividing the world of technology like laptops and smartphones and the world of cars, more tech companies are having a go at making their first automobiles. Hon Hai Technology Group, the owner of Foxconn, debuted three new electric vehicles at the Hon Hai Tech Day 2021 event. Those electric vehicles are the Model C, Model E, and the ambitiously named Model T.
The Taycan Is Porsche’s Best-Selling Non-SUV So Far This Year
In a world where crossovers and SUVs reign supreme, it is no surprise that the Porsche Cayenne and Macan continue to be the brand’s best-sellers. For the rest of Porsche’s model lineup though, the all-electric Taycan sits comfortably in third, making it the best-selling non-SUV Porsche so far this year.
This Tesla Model S Plaid Prototype Takes Aerodynamics to the Next Level
The Tesla Model S Plaid was spotted testing at the Nürburgring recently with an aero package equipped. Now, three prototypes have been spotted by our spy photographers on the ‘Ring as well as on the public roads. The highlight, of course, is the aero package and that active rear spoiler, but we also spotted it riding on different tires on the public roads and the track. With the way the testing is going, we think the package will be released soon.
BMW’s New Electric Architecture Comes With a Lot of Surprises, the First Being An Electric 3 Series
We now know that BMW is working on a new compact EV Saloon. Internally known today as the NK1, the rest of the world will know it as the 3 Series EV when it launches in 2025. It will serve as an alternative to the next-gen, fuel-powered 3 Series. Sitting atop a new electric architecture known as Neue Klasse, this electric 3 Series will be the first big step forward in BMW’s massive shift to electrification and will pave the way for a whole-new generation of BMW EVs – including an extended lineup of SUVs. This news, however, is about a lot more than a new electric 3 Series, and more about BMW’s path to the future.
The 2022 Honda Civic Si Is Refinement At Its Best
Unlike the Honda Civic Type-R which has been leaked many times and we have some details already, the automaker managed to stay tight-lipped about the new Civic Si. But, the eleventh-gen Si is here now and it comes with quite a few changes. On paper, it makes less power, but the car is said to be improved in a whole lot of other aspects. It now features the Type-R’s rev-matching, peak torque at lower rpm, and even better exhaust flow. How about that!
UPDATED: New Details About the Civic Si Paint An Interesting Picture, And The Type R Is Still A Mystery
Honda just revealed all the dirty details about both the 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback and the Civic Sedan, and, on top of this, we’ve learned a little bit about the Civic Si and Civic Type R. Honda didn’t go all out and spoil the party of anxiety leading up to the launch of these two gems, but we did learn a couple of things about them, including a very strange twist that nobody saw coming.
Update 10-18-2021: Honda has released a final teaser of the new Honda Civic Si along with the promise that it will be revealed on October 19, 2021. Check out the new image and what we know about it below.
2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia
The Giulia, is a well-known sports sedan from the house of Alfa Romeo that does not fit in a category the Germans ace in. It is a lot different with its sexy Italian looks, performance, and handling capabilities that can take the enthusiast inside of you to another zone. With the 2022 model year, Alfa Romeo did a few tweaks in the exterior with the new Veloce trim, and other than that, there are a few feature updates as well. Speaking of the competition, we cannot think of others apart from the Audi A5 Sportback, Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan, and the BMW 3 Series. Let’s find out about the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia more in this detailed review below.
The 2023 Nissan Maxima Could Finally Be A Step In The Right Direction
You probably know the Nissan Maxima as the brand’s bland sedan, destined to be a fleet car for a rental company or a taxi service. Over the years, the car did have a few decent versions, among which the SR, which was supposed to be a sportier variant of an otherwise unremarkable mid-size, front-wheel-drive sedan. To make things worse, the Maxima dropped the manual option in 2008 and, ever since, the potent 3.5-liter V-6 had to work with a lame CVT unit. However, the 2023 Nissan Maxima has the potential to be an exciting proposition. Here’s why.
Is There Any Way On Earth That A Ducati Panigale V4R Superbike Can Bully A BMW M5 And A Nissan GT-R On Steroids?
The good folks at ‘Carwow’ had a three-way race between a BMW M5 Competition, a Nissan R35 GT-R, and a Ducati Panigale V4R. While the superbike was stock, the cars most certainly weren’t. The German and the Japanese made 2,400 horses combined to fend off competition from a 200-odd-horsepower bike. Do you think the Ducati can beat these two cars, or will it be one of them to show the superbike its place?
Alfa Romeo Puts the Giulia to the Front of the Pack With Big Updates for 2022
Alfa Romeo may be in a tough position, but there’s no denying the company gave us some pretty good models in recent times. Under Stellantis’ banner, the brand is planned to become a global premium brand – something that starts with Alfa Romeo’s gradual transition to electrification, said to happen in 2027. Meanwhile, one of their most important models – the Giulia – is getting refreshed for the 2022 model year. The Italian sporty sedan has already proven a worthy alternative in the segment, and 2022 will see an updated version of it.
2022 Maserati Ghibli and Levante F Tributo Special Editions
Maserati is paying tribute to its racing history with the launch of the F Tributo Special Edition. The new edition will be offered for the Ghibli and Levante models and will be available in both United States and Canada. Prices for the Ghibli F Tributo start from $101,390, while the Levante F Tributo starts from $106,590.
Is This Latest Model S Prototype A ‘Track Pack’ For The Plaid Or Is It The Plaid+?
When Tesla decided to up the ante with the Model S, it had two versions in the pipeline – the Plaid and the Plaid+. However, in June 2020, Elon Musk announced on Twitter that the Plaid+ is canceled since the “Plaid is just so good”. Seeing the Plaid, I’m quite sure no one really needs more power and performance; well, not right away, though. But, a lot of us were wondering what it would’ve been like.
If you belong to that set, then here’s some news for you. It looks like the Model S Plaid+ isn’t dead because it was recently spotted testing at the Nürburgring; or is it just a Track Pack? Whatever it is, it is exciting.
2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio GT Junior
Back in September 2021, Alfa Romeo announced the special editions Giulia and Stelvio ’6C Villa d’Este.’ The two models paid tribute to the 6C 2500 SS Coupé produced by Alfa Romeo in the 1940s. Now, a month later, the Italian company announced the Giulia and Stelvio GT Junior - two special edition models that pay tribute to the GT 1300 Junior - a very successful Alfa Romeo model built between 1966 and 1976.
2022 Hyundai Sonata N Line Night Edition
After making its debut in the Paramount Pictures’ action film “Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins,” the limited-production Hyundai Sonata N Line Night Edition is now finally available at dealerships. It will be limited to only 1,000 units - offered in either Phantom Black or Quartz White - each with a starting price of $34,750.
This Lamborghini Huracan EVO’s Self-Confidence Was Shattered When It Faced The Tesla Model S Plaid
Brooks from DragTimes brought two of his prized possessions from his collection to the drag strip. One of them is the Tesla Model S Plaid and the other, a Lamborghini Huracan EVO. The Huracan EVO is no slouch by any means, but it was no match for the Model S Plaid. All the Lamborghini models will be electrified by 2024, so until, then, the Lamborghini models might face humiliation this way against the likes of fast EVs.
2021 Acura TLX
The second-generation Acura TLX has launched, and with it comes a plethora of exterior and interior upgrades along with a few upgraded features. It rides on an all-new platform and now competes with the Germans like the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, BMW 3-Series, and the Audi A5 while it is priced the lowest among them at $38,545. Is it the best you can buy in this budget? Let’s find out.
