Video of the Day: Mark Webber Test Drives the Porsche Mission E, Says It Reminds Him of the 919 Hybrid

Video of the Day: Mark Webber Test Drives the Porsche Mission E, Says It Reminds Him of the 919 Hybrid

Feels like a 918 Spyder too

The Porsche Mission E is on its way from concept to production car and, once it arrives in showrooms, it will be the company’s first all-electric vehicle. Essentially a 911 with four doors, the sleek Mission E uses a 600-horsepower drivetrain and some of the technology found inside the 919 Hybrid race car that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2016 and 2017. Not surprisingly, Porsche Team driver Mark Webber, who recently tested the Mission E on the Weissach track, says that the electric four-door feels a lot like the 919 Hybrid.

"It reminded me at times, a lot, of the 919," Webber said after he completed a few quick laps in the Mission E prototype. He also noted that "looking over the front wheel arches looks like a 918 Spyder" and also described the EV as a "game changer."

Unfortunately, the video is only two minutes long and doesn’t provide any additional information on the upcoming Mission E. But the sedan appears to be pretty fast on the Weissach, and Mark Webber seems extremely happy at the end of the run.

The production model is expected to go into production in 2019.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2018 BMW M3 CS

Wallpaper of the Day: 2018 BMW M3 CS

The next-gen BMW M3 is already in the works with a debut planned to happen sometime around the turn of the decade. That means there’s only a couple more years to enjoy the current M3 and more intense M3 CS. That CS essentially stands for weight loss, new exhaust, and new wheels, among other things. It’s not just the addition of carbon fiber and the shedding of a few pounds that makes the CS stand out, though. It’s the extra power output too, which accounts for an extra 28 horsepower and 37 pound-feet of torque. That brings total output figures up to 453 ponies and 443 pound-feet of torque; enough for a sprint to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds on the way to a top speed of 174 mph. Of course, there’s no choice but to flick some paddles for shifting purposes as a real manual transmission has been left off the options list.

Be that as it may, the M3 CS is one mean, light, carbon-fiber-toting machine and it’s more than worthy of some screen time on your home or office computer. So, we’ve hand-picked our favorite wallpaper and included a nice little gallery at the bottom with more awesome choices just for you. Go ahead and take them all if you want.

Now, it’s looking like that’s exactly what we’ll get in just a few weeks’ time, as Lego and Bugatti are gearing up to release the new Chiron Technic kit.

Ford May Finally Build a Fiesta RS, But It’s Not Coming to the U.S.

It could break cover in Europe next year

Rumors about Ford wanting to add a high-performance RS model to the Fiesta lineup have been flying around for quite a few years. Unfortunately, we never got a hot-hatch above the 212-horsepower ST200, despite the first Fiesta RS concept dating back to 2004. But Ford’s more recent plans to expand the RS performance lineup may finally include the tiny Fiesta.

Consumer Reports Claims that the Tesla Model 3 Has Big Flaws

Consumer Reports Claims that the Tesla Model 3 Has Big Flaws

Other outlets found issues too

A few years ago, Tesla made headlines with the Model S scoring the best-ever Consumer Reports ratings. Nowadays, things aren’t going as good. The Model S isn’t getting the best reviews, and the Model 3 falls short of the outlet’s recommendation. You probably remember that Consumer Reports reported some issues before the compact sedan was out. And Elon Musk freaked out, claiming a conspiracy against Tesla. Well, CR just finished testing the Model 3 it bought a while back, and it reports "big flaws," including "long stopping distances in emergency braking tests" and "difficult-to-use controls."

Video of the Day: Idiots Overtaking Cars at the Worst Possible Moment

Video of the Day: Idiots Overtaking Cars at the Worst Possible Moment

Don’t be like these people.

Here in the States, we don’t need to overtake other drivers via an oncoming lane as we have a huge network of highways. But it’s not like that in some places of the world, where main routes of long-distance transportation are more like country roads here – long, two-lane roads with bi-directional traffic. Naturally, you have to overtake someone from time to time but in busier areas of the road it happens a lot more often, and there’s always a turd in the punch bowl. In other words, there’s always some idiot that’s in so much of a rush; they can’t be bothered with waiting for a safe time to pass. That’s what this video of the day is all about – idiots who make bad decisions at the worst times. Not all idiots in this video cause car accidents but some do. The important thing to take away from this: Don’t be a retard and wait for a safe time to pass.

But don’t worry - we aren’t here to analyze Meghan’s dress or the contents of the goodie bags handed out to guests. No, we’d prefer to talk about that surprisingly quiet E-Type that whisked the happy couple off to the royal reception.

Elon Musk to Take On BMW M3 With a High-Performance, AWD, Tesla Model 3

Elon Musk to Take On BMW M3 With a High-Performance, AWD, Tesla Model 3

Musk aims to open a can of whoop ass on the Germans

The Tesla Model 3 isn’t the prettiest car on the road, it’s not the fastest, and it’s not even being delivered on time thanks to a slew of production problems. There have even been complaints about customers not getting the right and/or expected materials inside their Model 3 once they’ve taken delivery. Maybe all of these hiccups happened because Musk was too busy working on a high-performance version of the Model 3. Okay, that’s probably not the case, but he really was working on one, and it’s set to rival the BMW M3 with better performance, AWD, and a similar price.

Chevy is Offering the Most Diverse Silverado Lineup Ever for 2019, Including a 310-Horsepower Four-Cylinder Engine!

Chevy is Offering the Most Diverse Silverado Lineup Ever for 2019, Including a 310-Horsepower Four-Cylinder Engine!

Things... They are a changin

The automotive market has changed so much over the last 15 years, and its constant evolution is taking us to places we never expected and showing us things we never thought we’d see. After Ford and Chevy integrated modern four-cylinder engines into the Mustang and Camaro, it was only a matter of time before the led to even stranger things, and in this case, that’s a four-cylinder Silverado. Chevy has announced that the 2019 Chevy Silverado will be offered with a 2.7-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder. In fact, it’s not only offering it but listing it as standard equipment on the entry-level LT and the RST. Both come exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Video of the Day: Watch A Sleeper-Spec Ford Territory Crossover Lay The Smackdown At The Drag Strip

Video of the Day: Watch A Sleeper-Spec Ford Territory Crossover Lay The Smackdown At The Drag Strip

Turbocharged to 870 horsepower!

Hey! Wake up! It’s time for your weekly dose of sleeper awesomeness, this time coming from the fine folks over at 1320 Video. What we’ve got here would appear to be a rather benign-looking Ford Territory, a mid-size crossover produced between 2004 and 2016 by Ford Australia. Sure, it’s got big bronzed wheels and a window banner, but admit it - you wouldn’t look twice at this thing if it pulled up next to you on race day.

Of course, that would all change as soon as the lights turned green. That’s because the owner of this unassuming Blue Oval packed nearly 900 horses under the hood thanks to a stonking big turbocharger with all the trimmings. Paired with the same 4.0-liter inline six-cylinder that Ford installed at the factory; it’s a rip-roaring beast of a drag machine, churning the rubber with such vigor it smokes the tires halfway down the strip. At one point, the driver even has a bit of a moment, going sideways off the track in his enthusiasm.

All told, this daily-driven full-interior streetcar can manage 9’s - that is, if it actually manages to hook up. Clearly, the Aussie’s know what’s what when it comes to making big power and low passes. Oh yeah, and check out the license plate, which reads “XSPSI.” Nice touch!

Following though on some “unfinished business”

Back in the late ‘60s, Shelby built the GT500 Super Snake as a record-setting beast of a machine, but unfortunately, it never made it to full production status. Now, the American performance company is correcting that with a continuation run of the high-performance muscle car classic.

More money in your pocket, less headache from A to B?

Now, we’re getting a little more insight into the Boring Company’s plans, courtesy of a Q&A session Musk recently conducted in LA, wherein the company CEO revealed a $1 price point for mass transit users of the new underground transportation network.
