Something New to Look Forward to from BMW

BMW has introduced us to the i-Series of vehicle in the past couple year giving us cars that are built to be electric-hybrid vehicles that destroy the old ideal that a hybrid vehicle could not be a high performance machine. Of course Porsche already did this with the 918 Spyder, but at nearly $1M for the Porsche and only one version to select, BMW chose to create a lineup of these types of cars by giving us the i-3 and i-8 to whet our whistles and begin the imagination moving regarding what these cars can actually become.

Does Learning to Drive a Stick Shift Make for Better Drivers?

  In this world filled with technology and advanced instantaneous gratification we see people almost daily trying to perform the task of driving without the first thought of what they are actually doing. Instead of paying attention to the road or the rules of the road, they are busy on their cell phones (hopefully not texting, but you know some of them are), eating, drinking, looking for stations on the radio or just about anything but actually being in tune with the task at hand. This may be why we have so many governmental regulations regarding the types of cars that can be bought, driven and sold here, to protect us from ourselves, but the reality is we simply need to be better drivers.

For the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S, Tim Allen Needs to be Called

Possibly that is a stretch in the title to say we must call on Tim Allen even though anyone familiar with his brand of comedy and his television show would know he has always advocated for more power. To Tim it never mattered where that power came from as long as you could put more of it in whatever you were working on. The Subaru BRZ and is cousin the Scion FR-S are certainly cars that offer the need for more power. These two are amazing performance inspired vehicles which offer great handling and control in order to experience exceptional capability. With the thought of more power for this already awesome pair of cars, we can continue to complain and whine until Subaru wakes up and puts a strong V8 inside with a better exhaust and shaves off some weight from the car, or we can do ...

Best Car Features For 2015

Car technology has come a long way from your grandmother’s sedan. Heated seats, rear-view cameras, and so many other helpful features have been added to cars over the years to make your drive not only convenient, but comfortable as well. So which features are the most useful or luxurious car options for 2015? There are quite a few, it turns out. Although different manufacturer’s call them different things, they really all boil down to be the same features. Let’s start with the seats. Although heated leather seats have been around for a while and are a great comfort feature, leather can be a little warm in the summer. Enter the “air conditioned” seats. This feature allows you to cool down your seat and keeps your legs from sweating in your shorts during those 90 degree summer days. A...

Viper is going from Concept to Creation

Viper fans everywhere can rejoice as Dodge announced recently their plans to take the Viper ACR concept car to production for the 2016 model year. This is the natural progression for the car as the current version has been setting track records all over the world and it’s time for the next step to be taken by Dodge with the Viper. With this approval and plan to enter the 2016 model year with the ACR model, Dodge faces some scrutiny regarding the time and the sales of the current version of the Viper. This scrutiny is a result of the sluggish sales the current Viper has experienced, bringing to mind the question of why would a new Viper be up for the production line with the current version performing, from a sales point of view, so poorly. The answer is Dodge plans to use the new AC...
