Sigh…another fun car getting a diesel powerplant and another opportunity for us to pine for it from overseas. In a recent interview with Auto Express, Ford’s Chief Marketing Officer Mark Fields said that they would be introducing a diesel-powered version of the lovable Ford Focus ST. The problem is, it won’t be coming to the U.S. Of course.
Sure, Koenigsegg and Maserati may be soaking up the spotlight in Geneva — but there’s one big, beautiful car that people might be overlooking. It’s the called the NanoFlowcell Quant e-Sportlimousine, and (in addition to being a mouthful) it is a hybrid-electric, 900 horsepower hypercar.
Do you remember the toy cars you had growing up? There was the awesome Big Wheel, and then there was the “Little Tikes” car. Do you ever wish you could relive some of those moments, wheeling around the back yard? Well a company in the UK has built that opportunity for you.
Jaguar is a brand that sticks to the past, even when evolving. The names of its vehicles are well known, and when they introduce a new car, it is named in the context of past vehicles. So when Jaguar teases a new vehicle called “XE,” we tend to pay attention.
Until 2010, you would be a bit of a sci-fi aficionado to be very familiar with the TRON light cycle. It was that year that Disney rolled out the sequel, TRON: Legacy, with an epic soundtrack from Daft Punk, and some very cool visuals. Among those was an updated version of the light cycle, and damn did it look cool.
It has been quite a long time since the Chevrolet Corvette has had anything but a small block V8 underneath its hood. While the very first Corvette was available with a straight-six, this yellow C3 Corvette features an all-electric powertrain. Safe to say this was never an available engine code.
Created by Keith Stegath, we learned of this incredible project via Corvette Forums. Stegath has been hard at work on electrifying a third-generation ‘Vette for nearly two years, and features a 300-volt battery pack, weighing in about 1,200 pounds.
If you saw the latest episode of Top Gear, you’d know that Jeremy Clarkson got behind the wheel of the new McLaren P1 and labeled it as one of the best cars he’s ever driven. And we don’t doubt it. So we knew it was only a matter of time before everyone’s favorite YouTube reviewer, Chris Harris, would get behind the wheel of 903 horsepower hybrid hypercar.
For years, some automotive experts have lauded the benefits of diesel. Though it was slow to catch on, it is the fueling method I have often recommended to those looking for improved fuel economy, but without removing performance from the equation. Apparently truck buyers are listening, as the Ram truck brand has just announced it sold 8,000 diesel trucks in just three days– filling the initial run of production.
The French have always been daring in the styling department– just look at the Citroen DS. But French automaker Peugeot is rolling out several new drivetrain technologies. In addition to a super-clean diesel and a three-cylinder gas engine, there is also word of a hybrid drive system that employs compressed air.
There’s one thing that technology powerhouse Apple has yet to put on its expanding resume — a car. The idea of an Apple iCar has been teased in the past, but not until recently have we seen any movement. And now it may lead to production.
