      It sounds like what you're getting at is that the amortized cost is different because they would be buying it back only after it had the highest depreciation years, as opposed to your intention of...

      Like you said, it's from 2008. The quick runup in oil prices spurred a lot of innovation to make previously expensive oil extraction a lot less expensive. If you want to think of it as a curve,...

      That sounds pretty slick; I can't seem to find any information on the mechanics of how they're doing this or comparable applications from other manufacturers. Do you happen to have a link that...

      Porsche needs the money to make up for all the losses on the VW side of the Porsche Automobil Holding company.

      An old friend of mine had a Renntech modded SLK55 AMG, I think 2005 or 2006? Around there, as it was pretty new when I got to drive it in 2007. It seemed like a great car to me, but then again it...

      It was posted last week, but yeah, it was pretty good. I just feel like the R8 doesn't have the styling to match its performance or the desired excitement they're trying to build with it. It's like...

      The rating is the sustained figure. So if the car is rated at 300hp, it makes 300hp sustained. It's called overboost because it goes OVER the rated figure, say, 310hp and 330 lb-ft or whatever. ...

      Yeah the Exige trunk is even smaller. There was a thread making fun of it having an emergency release all the way back in 2008. :)

      On the street, you're rarely going to be driving flat out for more than a few seconds in a car like this. Even 8 seconds of overboost is enough to take you from standstill to higher than any speed...

      Yeah the Prius is a unique type of CVT known as a power split device. I've driven it too and it really excels at the things the Prius is made for: letting the gas motor stay at 0rpm whenever...

      While the manufacturers want it, there was an awful lot of pushback against manufacturers using DMCA to go after ECU tuners when it made the news last year. I don't think DMCA will ever gain...

      So I saw the thread title of "11 million dollar car" and figured it must be a McLaren. Now, granted I didn't think it would be this McLaren, nor a modded car, but I wasn't wrong in thinking it would...

      It sounds like a tuned WRX. Not that it's a bad thing, nor should I probably be surprised by that.

      First off, "alcohol" is a generic word. It's like saying "dog". From a motorsports standpoint, there's 4 main types of alcohol:

      methanol
      ethanol
      propanol
      butanol

      From top to bottom, you...

      There's a huge difference in range between the two, plus I think the Bolt packs a ton more tech. To me, this is like saying BMW can't sell the 5-series if the 3-series is on the lot. I simply don't...
