Video: Preview of the 2012 Porsche 911

Spy shot of next gen "991" Porsche 911

The next generation Porsche 911, internally known as project 991, isn’t set to be officially shown until September at the Frankfurt Auto Show this year. Spy shots have been posted on such sites as autospies.com and WordCarFans. Now a video from Porsche has been released on their YouTube channel.

Clear differences between the new model and the current 997 are the more upright headlights, a slightly longer body, and the side mirrors are now positioned at the side of the doors and not at the window.

Other new features for the new 911 will include extensive use of lightweight carbon materials and active aerodynamics–surfaces that react to what the car is doing, and how fast it’s doing it. Expect adjustable front and rear spoilers, dynamically opening and closing air intakes and an automatic rear wing.

Video: Nissan Juke Model vs. Model

Thursday February 17th, 2011 at 11:22 AM

NIssan Juke Model vs. Model AccelerationIn the spirit of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition going on sale this month, Nissan released a series of four ads that were created to answer the age-old question: what’s better, the Nissan Juke or a tall blond bombshell in high heels?

The Juke marketing campaign pits Amber and the car against each other in the categories of acceleration, agility, appeal and aerodynamics. Neither really wins in the end, but we get to see Amber in four bikinis, plus a few slow-motion shots that really test your pacemaker. I think the biggest achievement is not Nissan’s newest crossover, but Amber running the sprint and slalom course in a pair of high heels without breaking an ankle.

Watch the videos below and you be the judge.

Video of Nissan Esflow EV Sports Car Concept – The Sports Car of the Future?

Monday February 14th, 2011 at 2:22 PM
Posted by: aquadog

Nissan Esflow EV Sports Car ConceptNissan will unveil the new electric Esflow EV sports car concept at next month’s Geneva Motor Show, to demonstrate how a sports car of the future might look.

Nissan’s Esflow is based on the technology from their first practical Zero Emission car, the Nissan Leaf; however, the powertrain is tuned to offer a more sporty driving experience with rear-wheel drive and two motors. The two electric motors are positioned above the axis of the rear wheels to control the left and right wheels independently, producing optimized torque (60mph/100kph in under 5 seconds), vehicle stability, and efficient power regeneration. Like the Leaf, the motors will be powered by laminated lithium-ion battery packs, but will be situated low along the axis of the front and rear wheels, to help out the center of gravity, allowing the Esflow to travel over 150 miles (240km) on one charge.

Posted by: Francois

ken block DC Monster FordThis video will show you why TV is in trouble. It is the finest content available on the subject – high performance auto entertainment. It is far better than any car video or car show you will see on TV. Plus it is a perfect blend of  entertainment and advertisement. You’re watching an ad and you don’t even care!

Ken Block  made the Gymkhana 1 video and it exploded with over 30 million views. It has upped his popularity and income potential by a magnitude 7 on the Richter scale.  He is probably the most recognized driver right now specially among the younger generation and he has helped sell many, many Subarus.

Top Gear USA Teaser Video

Thursday September 2nd, 2010 at 10:99 AM
Posted by: Derek

Top Gear USAThe world’s most popular car-related TV show, produced in the U.K., is Top Gear. Lately, BBC America has been showing more reruns of Top Gear from past seasons and fewer new episodes from the 2010 season. Maybe they are holding back because the History Channel will begin airing a U.S. version of Top Gear. As we anxiously await, today the History Channel gives us a preview of what to expect from the team, and so far, it looks pretty good.

The visual style will be familiar to anyone that’s seen the original U.K.-version, though the tone and demeanor of hosts Adam Ferrara, Tanner Foust and Rutledge Wood are all-American. In this teaser clip, each host gets hold of their favorite Lamborghini and try to convince each other that theirs is the baddest bull of them all.

Video: 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI First Drive

Posted by: Derek

2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
The 2011 Subaru WRX STI, with its iconic rear wing, receives a new body style this year. Under the hood is a 305 horsepower Subaru Boxer powerplant. Suspension tuning techniques, such as lowering the ride height to 5.9 inches, using stiffer front stabilizer bar and rear springs (the latter by 18 percent), and stiffer subframe bushings, were aimed at improving steering precision to further minimize mid-corner corrections.

Also new are standard 18-inch Enkei aluminum wheels that are 17 lbs. lighter than before, or silver BBS® forged alloy wheels for drivers who like to stand out from the crowd.
