Aston Martin And Ferrari Will Square Off With Electric Sports Cars In 2025
When it comes to hybrid and electric drivetrains, Aston Martin and Ferrari are some of the most intriguing car companies. Yes, Ferrari has more than one model, powered by a hybrid powertrain, but a fully electric version is still out of the question. Or rather, it was. According to the latest intel, Ferrari is indeed preparing to launch their first fully electric model, in 2025. As for Aston Martin, their Valhalla is said to undergo substantial revisions, following its debut, set for 2023, foreshadowing the brand’s first EV, set to make an appearance in 2025 – the same time as Ferrari.
What Happens When You Throw A Nissan GT-R Into The Mix With Two Germans?
The folks at Carwow brought the Nissan GT-R Nismo to the drag strip to take on the Porsche Panamera Turbo S e-hybrid and the Audi RS6 Avant. The Germans are powered by a V-8 engine, while the Nissan comes with a V-6. But, the latter holds a massive weight advantage over its rivals and it is called the Godzilla for a reason. Do you think it can take on and take down the Volkswagen’s subsidiaries?
2021 Porsche 911 (964) EV Restomod by Everrati
There’s nothing quite like a classic Porsche, and the 964-gen 911 holds a special place in a lot of hearts. When the 964 911 entered production in 1989, it was considered to be 85-percent new compared to the model it replaced – not only a bold move, but a hard thing to achieve considering it had to retain that timeless 911 look. The 964 is long gone and is now considered a classic, and that’s why so many restomods are popping up these days – the 964 is at that ripe age. Not all restomods are created equal, though, and that’s where this 500-horsepower Porsche 911 (964) restomod comes into play. Fair warning – it might not please the purists.
Alfa Romeo might bring back the GTV and Duetto
Despite its glorious motorsport history, Alfa Romeo has kind of been on and off the bench in terms of market presence. In recent years, they’ve actually had a good run. They brought out the Alfa Romeo 4C, which was a great competitor to the likes of Lotus Elise and Porsche 718, and the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio have managed to liven up the car market a bit. Both of these models are said to be nearing the end of their production cycle, but two new models could fill in the void.
2021 McLaren 720S by DarwinPro - Senna Looks Without All The Drama
The McLaren 720S is an extreme machine, and was one of the first ever supercars to approach the acceleration level of modern day hypercars. Where McLaren stopped with the 720S, aftermarket tuners picked up, giving the world models like the McLaren 720S by Novitec, McLaren 720S Zenith Black by MSO, and even the 720S Spyder by MSO. Each of these programs built upon and already amazing package, but none of them come close to making the 720S look as extreme as the McLaren Senna,and that’s where DarwinPro’s new aerodynamic body kit comes into play.

EV Electra Quds Rise - A Lebanese EV That’s Compact But Quick
The best thing about electrification is how it opened up avenues for new companies to come and compete in the market. Everyone has to start from scratch, be it your mainstream automakers or new startups. The only difference is how much moolah they have and are willing to invest. Had there been electrification, we wouldn’t see companies like Rivian, Lordstown, Elation, or even Tesla for that matter, come to life.
We hear about a new EV start-up every other day, and today, it’s a company called Electra from Lebanon. Electra revealed its first EV called the Quds Rise sometime back. The EV looks sporty overall, but the ‘inspired’ grille on the face makes it look like it’s pulled out of a kids’ movie. That aside, it seems an impressive attempt for a new company.
Can An Old Tuned BMW M3 Beat The New M3?
The new BMW M3 was the talk of the town for the longest time for its face. The company didn’t change it despite the outcry, but I guess it is time to move on. That aside, the car is still a great handler. The switch to the torque converter from a dual-clutch has also drawn polarizing opinions, but overall the new M3 is a delight on the tarmac.
The folks at Carwow pit the new M3 Competition against the old BMW M3 for a series of races and tests. But, the catch here is that the old M3 isn’t in its factory tune. The car comes with a power bump and makes 700 horses as opposed to the new M3’s 510. Will this play a big role in the result?
This Ultra-Wide Porsche Cayman Confirms That Porsche Is Up to Something!
Porsche is up to something again, as we see images of a super-wide Porsche Cayman test mule, roaming around the Nurburgring. Porsche’s small mid-engine sports car already has plenty of versions, which begs the question, what are they cooking this time? There are more than a few theories, as to what exactly we might be looking at, some of which may surprise you. The most obvious of them is that this is the next Cayman, in very early stages of development, but there are plenty of reasons for us to think, it might be something else.
A Dodge Viper Just Ran the Quarter-Mile In 6.8 Seconds
What according to you are impressive specs for a fast car on a drag strip? About 1,000 horses and a sub-10-second time? I’m sure a car that can achieve this will have your attention. But, what about a car that can make 3,250 horses and clock sub-seven-second times? You’ll probably tell me to get out of here, but hey, I’m not kidding.
Will Dugas, the owner of a second-gen Dodge ‘Juggernaut’ Viper, has managed to complete a quarter-mile in 6.8 seconds at the Hail Mary Derby! This is now officially the world’s quickest Dodge Viper. That has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
A New Rumor Says The 2022 Nissan Z Will Be On Sale Very Soon
The Nissan 370Z is a great, affordable sports car that offers decent performance, but there comes a time when you have no choice but to put an old dog down. And, after 13 years on the market, that’s exactly what’s happening and why we’re super stoked for the new Nissan Z to hit the market. Rumor has it that it’s supposed to debut in late 2021 as a 2022 model, and the latest leak says that it could happen just in time to order yourself a nice, sexy Christmas present on four wheels.
Can an LSA-swapped Sequential-Shifting Pontiac Trans Am beat a Ferrari 488 Pista?
Muscle cars and drag races go together like ham and cheese on a sandwich, but that doesn’t mean the strip belongs only to the American V-8 engines. The guys at Hoonigan are giving us another “This vs that” drag race, where they usually put two very different vehicles against each other. This time, it’s a tastefully modified 1988 Pontiac Trans Am vs a 2020 Ferrari 488 Pista. At first glance, the results may be obvious, but there is a catch – a Le Mans start to two of the three drag races. How will this affect the drag race?
