My thoughts... This thing is too heavy. Wish it was closer to 1400 lbs. 1700 lbs is just too much for a minimalist car like this. Seems like that engine and trans saddled it with a lot of weight. For reference I built cars with 4 wheels and a V8 that came in right under 2000 lbs. The front fenders seem to be way… » 7/28/14 1:34pm 7/28/14 1:34pm

This weekend, I finally got to put some decent miles on a 12C. I LOVE this car. It isn't as sexy as a 458 (Which I think is a great looking car). It is more a form follows function design. The rear is actually really good looking in my opinion, the front has some awkwardness to its look. Awkwardness like an early… » 6/15/14 1:55pm 6/15/14 1:55pm

I got to drive a 918 recently. It was fantastic. So many bits and pieces that were reminiscent of the Carrera GT. One of the sales guys likened the 918 to the 959 in that it is a technical showcase for the company and pushes the boundaries of where and how we get supercar performance for the future. I was… » 5/29/14 5:35pm 5/29/14 5:35pm

Some engineering geek can help me out here but... Drag coefficient has a relation to the size of the object. If you have a very large object and a very small object with the same drag coefficient, it will still be harder to push the large object through the air because of its size. » 3/25/14 11:35am 3/25/14 11:35am

This is great and I understand the want for a balanced car. Let me put it this way though... I drove the car yesterday on a test drive and I am not a buyer of this car with 200hp. I want something with a little more oomph. With a 280-300hp turbo motor at $28-32k and a factory warranty, I AM a buyer. » 2/20/14 4:02pm 2/20/14 4:02pm

This loss for the unions helps restore my faith in the US. We don't need people to watch out for us, we don't need a union steward to hold our hand when we have to talk to the boss, we don't need a greedy corrupt group of people taking money and blowing it. We need the opportunity to work hard and get ahead. The… » 2/15/14 2:33pm 2/15/14 2:33pm

This is an auto enthusiast site and with that in mind, an old school BMW with an auto tranny may not suck, but it certainly isn't what an enthusiast would choose. While that era of BMW is still a drivers focused machine; simple, direct, sporty and mechanical, the slush box just won't cut it. I think you should… » 2/09/14 3:42pm 2/09/14 3:42pm

The V10 in the Carrera GT. Sounds better than the LFA and is mated to a real transmission. It has instant throttle response both up and down the rev range. Closest thing to a racing engine for the street in the last 20 years and in one of the last true analogue cars made by a volume manufacturer. » 1/27/14 11:43am 1/27/14 11:43am

It's actually a '33 from FFR and while they build some decent stuff that will out handle an original old Ford, they are certainly not a steel bodied original and leave a lot to be desired in fit and finish. All FFR products are a good value but they serve up a lot of Kool-Aid as well. » 1/22/14 4:45pm 1/22/14 4:45pm
