Tesla Model 3

What To Do While You Wait On For Your Tesla 3?

I have read on some forums of the dilemma that Tesla Model 3 reservation holders are experiencing because of the long awaited arrival of the much anticipated Model 3. While many were early to get in their deposits, some sleeping in line and gladly donating their $1000 deposits, others of us on the East Coast sat back and looked at the anticipated roll out dates.
2018 Nissan Leaf

Does The New 2018 Nissan Leaf Look Matter? Range and Tesla Competition

Spotted in Europe recently was a camouflaged Nissan Leaf suspected to be the 2018 version of the world’s bestselling electric car. We have heard that a redesign was coming and welcomed by many that thought the first-generation Nissan Leaf design was ugly to start with. To me (prior Nissan Leaf driver for 3 years) the styling was extremely functional and space friendly for my daily driving needs.
2017 right drive Camaro ZL1

Aussies Can Get a Right Drive Camaro ZL1 for $146k

The Chevrolet Camaro is not built in the right hand drive configuration which is required for legal use in Australia, but those hardcore (and financially wealthy) Chevrolet fans “down under” who want to drive the most powerful GM muscle car ever – a local company will handle the importing and all of the work to switch the supercharged beast to right-drive for around $146k AUS.
Electric Cars in 2017 New York Auto Show

Electric Cars Coming To 2017 NY Auto Show and Their Range Issues

Last year I had the opportunity to attend the NY Auto Show at the Javitz Center in NYC and it was to work at the Sierra Club booth right in front of the registration area to test drive an Electric Car. This was a surreal event as you can easily drive the BMW I3, Nissan Leaf, and Soul EV around the track on the Lower Level of the Center even indoors because there is never any pollution from the EV itself. Try doing that with the internal combustion engine, known as an ICE engine.
Mercedes E-Class Shifter

Actually Mercedes-Benz E-Class' Shifter Is Awsome

Recently, Consumer Reports released a report that detailed how confusing shifters have gotten on cars with automatic transmissions. It called out more than a dozen manufacturers for using shift levers it claims are difficult to use, even going to far as to stop recommending the Chrysler 300, the Lexus CT200h, and both the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and GLE. But while the report makes several good points, I can’t agree with it entirely. Because Mercedes’ column shifter is actually awesome.
Corvette active aero patent filings

The Corvette could soon get an Elaborate Active Aerodynamics Package

General Motors has filed for a patent with the US government for an elaborate active aerodynamics package which is displayed in the filing on a C7 Corvette – with the fine print detailing an array of adjustable components which adapt to the vehicle’s motion based on a variety of inputs.
Chevy Bolt

Chevy Bolt vs Chevy Volt - Is Chevy Bolt Going to Cannibalize on Chevy Volt Sales?

Is the Chevy Bolt going to cannibalize on Chevy Volt sales? It seems like GM is actually competing with itself when you look at the deliverables of these two vehicles in my opinion. At the moment, we have 40 to 50 miles of electric range with the 2017 Chevy Volt and 240 miles of EV Range in the Chevy Bolt.

High Horse Performance sets another Dodge Hellcat 1/4-mile Record

This past weekend at Cecil County Dragway in Maryland, the High Horse Performance team brought their familiar white Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat out for the first time of the season and the results were very good – with Josh Schwartz and the Top Cat Challenger setting the new record for the world’s quickest Hellcat car.
