Aston Martin DB11 Leaked

My penchant for Aston Martin, is obvious. I honestly believe they are the greatest automaker in the world, because they have never yielded to mediocrity, instead they have striven to make a product that exceeds all others in every way, even in the face of bankruptcy. Despite being (ostensibly) a single (super) instrument band, they are remarkably well rounded. If it were not for the fact that th

Tesla Model S P85D Keeps It (Better Than) 100

Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk has plenty to be pleased about this week. Yesterday it was revealed that Tesla beat its own record for range with a remarkable 452.8 miles on a single electric charge. Apparently, however, the upstart EV automaker wasn’t satisfied with beating just one world record—they had to go and do it again by scoring 103 points out of a possible 100 in the Consumer Reports Ratings

Minimalist Sports Car: Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Hyundai recently released a concept car; the Vision G. The Vision G as the name may or may not imply is a sneak preview of what the Genesis subbrand might have in store for the future. It was a coupe that packed the power of the Genesis sedan’s 5.0 liter Tau V8. In my humble opinion, it seems that the Korean has monumental rebranding plans in store for their flagship company. Because, while the

Audi vs. Tesla Pt. 2: Rise of the Audi Q6

The impact of Tesla Motors on the automotive industry cannot be overstated. In its short existence, the little electric vehicle maker that could has changed the game by inspiring other auto companies to manufacture EVs of their own. One of Tesla’s more notable competitors in the electric vehicle field is Audi. As we noted in Part 1 of this series, Audi and Tesla are engaged in an electric battery

Hyundai of the Future

Hyundai is typically seen as a minimalistic car brand. That is by no means an insult, I used to love my Elantra. Ten years old at the time but still did everything I could from a car… albeit with the help of a handy dandy cassette converter. It shifted gears, played my music had cruise control and was capable of over 30 to the gallon if I drove conservatively. Recently, to try to shed the aura o

The Amazing Auto Jaguar Almost Made

2010 was Jaguar’s 75th anniversary. To celebrate that fact, the cat car company made a one-off hyper car that was designed to demonstrate their technological and mechanical prowess. The result was figuratively (and potentially literally) breath taking. Jaguar made a Hybrid with a amazing statistics, the car was so popular at the 2010 Paris Auto Show, it almost reached the production line. When it

The Best Car Jaguar Will Never Make

The Jaguar brand did not exist until 1935. Before then, the father of Jaguar was a coach builder; he made stunning bodies for cars that already existed. That year he made his first car, the sporty SS100. 75 years after the unveiling of their first production car, Jaguar made the best car under the badge; the C-X75, unfortunately, the completely conceptual concept will never hit the streets. That

Buzz About the Mazda MX-5

The Mazda MX-5 officially started shipping from the factory the day before July. Since then they have exceeded sales expectations; pre-delivery. Apparently everyone loves the fourth generation Miata. But why is the news buzzing so fervently about the newest Mazda MX-5, did the Japanese Automaker just knock this one out of the park? The Miata has always essentially existed in a vacuum. And by that

Plug-in Hybrid SUV Race: Porsche Cayenne

The fact that Porsche was the first to make a Plug-in hybrid SUV is no surprise. The first hybrid ever made, was in the 19th century, by a man name Ferdinand. A year later this car premiered at the 1900 world’s fair. The Semper Vivus was the first automobile to use both electric and internal combustion engines in tandem. 115 years later, Porsche has reached the market first again; their plug-in Hy

Plug-in Hybrid SUV Race: Mercedes GLE550e

Mercedes-Benz’s new 2015 GLE line may seem like an all-new model, but it actually is not. It is just an SUV by another name. Merc is now giving all of its SUVs the G distinction, I assume for clarity’s sake. Mercedes’s GLE550e seems to be the most limited of the plug-in Hybrid SUVs hitting the market, but if it is a race, they might be getting there first as it is supposed to be released in Septem
