      Sucks to go in such a "stupid" accident, esp at that age.


      Also... Manuel would never do that to you.

      Investing heavily in EVs and expecting them to account for 25% of group sales in 9 years will financially hurt VW group just as much as dieselgate will, if not even more.

      Bring back Piech.

      Germany is in very good shape atm, budget surplus in 2014(9 billion euros) and 2015(25 billion euros). Refugees are really cheap workforce for future growth(germany is also home to a huge number of...

      There's no such thing as emissions free car.
      A proper way to grade cars should be total life cost over a 20 years period(as the article states in germany it's around 20 years). Then let's see what...

      Marchionne, and I do not think highly of him, is completely and 100% right in this regard. Not one company, not even Tesla, can make money on electric cars. Why should he throw money down the drain...

    7. VW is considering building a 11 billion $ battery cell plant

      It would be built in Germany, near Wolfsburg. Nothing is still definite, though.

      I like Le Blanc, he has potential, if he could only get paired with somebody more likeable than Evans... Sabine is great. Chris Evans is terrible. He's too brash and annoying.

      It can't. You're comparing apples to oranges - a non-standard civic type-r driven by a factory driver vs a journalist lap for production spec M4.

      When Sport Auto tested Type-R, they achieved a...

      Something was off with that particular Clubsport.

      When AMuS tested it on the Hockenheim short it set the FWD lap record, as fast as an 1M and e92 M3.

      Maybe the diff was not working properly,...

      BTW, B10 Biturbo is the second most produced but also the most known e34 Alpina. The company made a number of e34 Alpinas

      B10 3.5 (sedan or touring, I6 252 hp, 5 sp manual or 4AT) 572 cars made...

      77k $ is A LOT. Just a few years ago a pristine B10 Biturbo was 30 000 euros.

      Lovely car.
      When tested against Testarosa it was faster from 0-200 kmh than the Ferrari and had similar performance to contemporary 911 Turbo.

      The thing that always makes me smile - as an option,...

      TT RS.
      4 cylinder 718 would not even be in contention.
      If available and not too expensive, 6 cylinder Boxter.
    15. Don't be ridiculous. Is the Golf GTI nose heavy?...

      Don't be ridiculous. Is the Golf GTI nose heavy? Or Focus ST?
      Let's compare.
      EA288 2 liter 4 cylinder in the VW Golf 152 kg
      Ford's Ecoboost 2 liter 4 cyl in the Focus ST 149 kg
      And, the nose...

      Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.
      I may be regarded as an idiot for saying this, but TT RS would always get my money over the 718 4 cylinder.
      Now they need to put this drivetrain the A1, A3, Golf...

      OK, let's be clear here. These VW diesel engines in question are EA288 gen, not the problematic EA189 that is the issue of recalls and fixes.

      It also had a few bad apples, like the A8 3 liter diesel which was...

      Leaf and similar EV cars do not sell in same numbers as Tesla and Bolt project to do. In fact, they sell rather poorly. They do not compete with each other as they offer half the range of the Bolt or...
