      Autonomous cars are programmed to travel in a specific lane and get you from Point A to Point B. They will avoid accidents using the brakes and throttle. For this reason alone autonomous cars will...

      Showing us two small problem areas with 1 specific car shows us absolutely nothing about real interior quality across an entire model. It speaks to Toyota's quality control, which is poor apparently...

      Hard to tell without options. A manual S5 can be anywhere from $52,000 to $65,000 MSRP.

      Mid $40's is where I'd expect it. Maybe a tad more if it's really well optioned, but under $50k for sure....

      So, basically, you were never a fan of the cars they made until they started making cars.

      Prior to the MP4-12C, the last true McLaren finished production in 1998 and they made a grand total of 106...

      Agreed. They seem to move well enough and the design is extremely attractive, even though most people don't know what it is.

      I like it. Helps me to not get speeding tickets. I set my cruise for 77-80 MPH in a 65 or 70 zone and it feels fast enough for me, when in actuality I'm doing like 73-77, which isn't always enough to...

      I work in the industry. For Chevelles (and likely most other muscle cars these days), this is what you can expect these days for a medium quality show car, not a Barrett-Jackson car, but better than...

      I run Conti DWs at 235/35-19 and get some rubbing on a 19x8.5 et43 Audi Peeler. Stock springs.

      Again, Subaru hasn't competed in the highest level of rally in now going on 7 years.

      As far as using that as a reason to prefer the STI over another car, I'd say Subaru, as a company, has all but...

      Yeah, no. Never had inside wheel spin at all. :confused: Maybe if you're running crappy tires or getting on the power too early.

      I actually beat the Lightning Lap time by 8 seconds after modding....

      Anyway this shouldn't be that surprising to people when the MK6 was only .2 seconds slower than an STI at VIR on Lightning Laps, and that car was equipped with all season tires, undefeatable traction...

      Hahaha... No kidding. Not a single aspect, ever, of the GT or GT40 was ever "blue collar." If anything it was a rich gentleman's middle finger to the Italians, sponsored by what is mostly British...

      Sigh.

      Subaru hasn't participated in Rally since 2009. Cool story, though.

      Meanwhile, VW.. does! And is winning. A lot.

      Found my CC's replacement, assuming they make it.

      VW owns Porsche now so it's totally cool to do this to remind other Porsche who is actually in charge these days.

      1) The torque band is much wider. STOCK numbers on the R: 280+ pound-feet of torque (MEASURED AT THE WHEELS! Not at the crank.), between 1,800 to 5,500 rpm. Tuned the peak increases to over 360. The...

      Just so you know, by and large, the suspension in the 1LE is nothing like what you get in the Z/28.

      A 1LE has far more in common with an SS than a Z/28. The close-ratio transmission and ZL1 fuel...
