Getting More from Less

This may be the theme of the automotive world as we see it now. Nearly every single automaker works to find a way to get more out of their vehicles. The days of being able to make cars with bigger engines and let the emissions be damned has long passed us by and now automakers turn to other forms of creating more from even less. The direction of the automotive world is heading toward more efficiency and power from engines that produce the lowest emissions ever, which has created a dynamic of lighter materials that are now used in the building of vehicles.

Lookout Midsized Truck World

It’s a great thing that GM finally decided to reenter the midsized truck market. The entire segment was becoming extremely stale and the automakers didn’t seem to care too much. The trucks that were still part of the market when GM left for a short few years were still being made with very few updates once GM came back with two of the best midsized trucks we could ever see.

While it may seem seriously like a waste of money to spend this kind of money on car we see the ultra-rich purchase things such as large yachts and rare paintings that cost much more than this on a regular basis, so spending a seven figure number on a car might not be out of the question, at least Aston-Martin hopes it’s not a roadblock to their sales of one particular model.

What is Porsche Up To?

When I say “Porsche” what comes to mind? Athletic, dynamic, sporty cars that have been the most impressive sports cars on the planet for many years; at least that is what I think of when someone says Porsche to me. While there are now two Porsche SUVs it’s still the sports cars that are put out every years that make Porsche one of the most impressive brands on the market. There have been Porsche models that are more affordable to allow more customers to enjoy them and then there have been some that were so exclusive you had to win the lottery to even think of buying them.

What do You Want to do with Your Old Car Parts?

The world is now full of people who are looking for different ways to reduce, reuse or recycle items to let them have a second life as something else. We try to recycle plastics to be reused as more plastics for bottles and other items; we try and make different items out of left over pieces of wood to allow these items to have a new life, but what about vehicle parts? With many vehicle parts being made from metals how practical is it to turn them into something else other than another vehicle? (more…)
