Back in the day, Carroll Shelby was the man, I believe his company stills works on….

Who is using new technology to build sports cars

TVR Sports car

They are hoping this will be a less expensive way of building a high quality sports car…..

TVR is officially back and plans to launch four new models over the next decade that will have new technology. TVR’s first model, which should be here within the next two to three years, will be constructed entirely out of carbon fiber. The limited-edition launch will be the automaker’s first full production sports car to utilize carbon fiber. Gordon Murray, who is well known for his work in Formula 1 and for the legendary McLaren F1, used his iStream Carbon manufacturing process to create a ground effect aero chassis and body package.

Looking ahead to the 2016 best sports cars

one of seven best

 

Godzilla has a reputation as an energetic but prickly monster but Nissan plans to make it more civilised, from the interior to the ride and noise suppression.

That should extend its appeal to prestige buyers.

As the quality of the materials rises so will the price, so don’t expect much change from $180,000 when the updated model lands late this year.

Renaming an already famous sports car may be leading to a totally new design. Check out the article for some of the reasons….

Latest updates confirmed that the brand has registered for a trademark name – the AeroBlade. As the name is self-explanatory, it refers to brand new aerodynamics that they may have developed for all their future supercars. With the years rapidly rolling by, car makers are gearing up for the near future where cars are expected to drive on their own besides supporting all latest gadgets and possibly use electric motors to be on the move.

007 spectre

There are some interesting statistics about Switzerland I was never aware of – appears it is full of very wealthy people….

You cannot see an Aston Martin pass by the street without looking at it. The engine’s sound and the look will definitely capture your attention.

Mazda MX-5 1.5 review

mazda mx-5

Old style for a new model, still looks like a fast sports car and probably is. This model is shorter than the original MX-5 of 26 years ago…..

When Mazda launched the original MX-5 (codenamed NA) 26 years ago, they created quite a stir with its modern rendition of the 1960s’ roadster genre.

It’s a cleverly packaged sports car – cutesy, fun to drive, affordable and with a measure of Nihon reliablility. Other cars have tried to emulate Mazda’s roadster formula, but none has managed to reach the MX-5’s cult status.

Is The Mid-Engine Corvette For Real

mid-engine corvette

Back in the late 1950’s, I had an opportunity to actually drive a Corvette…..what a kick…..I cannot even imagine what it would be like today.

In a recent interview with Motor Trend, Cadillac’s President Johan de Nysschen was talking halo cars, diesel’s vs hybrids and production of cars for global buyers. de Nysschen was specifically asked if Cadillac was considering building a halo car based on the forthcoming mid-engine Corvette and he answered that it has to be one of the options considered.

Porsche 911 with the least defects

porsche 911

The design of the Porsche’s these days, verses when I was growing up in the mid-1900’s, is remarkable. I used to cringe…..

Even when of more mature years, the Porsche 911 is a trouble-free companion. No matter whether it is seven, nine or eleven years old – in the latest Autobild TÜV report, the sports car icon was again the model with the fewest defects among all vehicles in its age group. The same as the year before, in each of the general technical inspections, the TÜV inspectors found the least grounds for complaint. Overall, the 911,
