Fiat won’t air 124 Spider ad with Charlie Sheen after actor’s reveal he is HIV positive
I doubt this was discrimination as you put it. Firstly, Fiat would be well aware that dropping him simply because he was HIV positive would cause a backlash. Rather, they are more likely worried that he could be the subject of a range of high profile lawsuits for potentially passing on the infection to unwitting partners, which is being mooted now. That is the sort of PR that would be a nightmare for any company. Fiat is right to walk away at least until the air is clear.

Toyota President Akio Toyoda puts the brakes on a seven-seat Lexus crossover
If passion results in that there are more buyers for Lexus willing to pay more dollars per vehicle, well, that's a pretty good reason to change styles :D.

Airbus Helicopters & Peugeot Design Lab unveil the new H160
I do a bit of work in aviation: it's amazing to see that whilst the aerospace industry is very advanced in things such as materials science, the incredibly long lead time and model lifespan of aircraft mean that the automotive sector is often 2-3 generations ahead of aerospace in many criteria...and in terms of manufacturing efficiencies, it's aerospace that learns from the automobile sector.

Ferrari 488 GTE and 488 GT3 revealed during Finali Mondiali at Mugello
Amazing that we have reached that threshold so smoothly. You have to wonder when the GT3 Formula will be redefined so there is actually a real positive difference with equivalent road cars in this new turbo era...

2017 Infiniti Q60 Coupe spied for the first time
4.7 litres, a twin turbo setup, supposedly high performance...and just 408 hp???

Hyundai announces plans to spin off Genesis as global luxury brand
Good luck: technical ability of the cars is really there, but the tough - and expensive - work will be the marketing. A lot of ad agencies and brand consultancies are going to get real rich now...

Mercedes starts assembling GLC in China
I hope people here realize that MB (and also BMW, VW and Buick) hire the best workers - of which there is a huge selection - and pay them incredibly good wages (by Chinese standards) and give them close to Western terms and conditions...and give them top quality training. And it helps that the machinery and equipment is the same as in Western plants. So, just be aware at worst, the quality of these cars would be as good as any coming out of Germany...and perhaps even just a bit better.

Singer Vehicle Design explain how they make the Porsche 911 even better [video]
Saw one of these cars in Sunnyvale based on a 1973 RS: absolutely jaw dropping. Chatted to the owner, who owns a high tech company in town and has 11 other high end cars (Rolls Royce Phantom, Ferrari 458 and a Carrera GT included). He said the Singer was just a joy to drive: sure, it wasn't the fastest and it did cost a packet (over 480K not including donor), but it was like driving a Patek Phillipe watch: absolute craftsmanship, every part of impeccable quality, perfectly fitted and part of a brilliant whole. No wonder Singer has a waiting list that makes so many people cry...

2017 Acura NSX has 573 bhp, 476 lb-ft and weighs 3,803 lbs
We live in a world where you can get a new Mercedes for not much over $30K. 'Nuff said...

Lexus LF-FC goes official to preview the next generation LS fuel cell flagship [videos]
Wow. Amazing that Lexus has been known for very conservative designs from pretty much the very first LS400...and over the past handful of years, they have moved aggressively away from this philosophy to be really adventurous. Interesting to see how much of this stunning design makes it to the production version.

2017 Acura NSX has 573 bhp, 476 lb-ft and weighs 3,803 lbs
We still don't know what the pricing will be, this is a guess: I agree USD 170K might make it a tough sell, but anything below the USD 150K start point and it's a winner. Also, whilst it's no lightweight, considering the hybrid setup, it's actually quite acceptable. Just hope they managed to package it all with a low centre of gravity...

Toyota grabs sales crown from Volkswagen with 7.49M cars sold through September
The outright sales numbers are good, but a better measure is overall profitability. In the fiscal year to March 2015, Toyota made USD 18.1 billion. Not only was that more than VW...it was larger than VW and GM combined.

There is one way to settle this: get this car into Australia and have a kangaroo test...

Old Honda CR-V comes to rescue Pagani Huayra stranded on gravel [video]
My head programmer got his F430 stuck in sand at about 0220 on a Saturday morning. He was trying to impress a girl - worked as they're married now - and thought that a drive along the beach by the moonlight would be nice. He had done it before and didn't think it would be a problem. Well, the hard packed sand (you can actually drive on this stuff easily in any type of car most times) had been transformed into near quick sand by a quick drenching storm that he had not counted on. Made it about 10m before the car sank to the hubs. A long and not so romantic night!

Volkswagen CEO states the obvious: dieselgate bill could be higher than the €6.5 billion allocated
Possible, but unlikely for many years. Most likely they will need to sell off things like Ducati, Bugatti, Lamborghini etc. However, if the amount they have to pay is very large, then they may need to offload Porsche.

Bentley confirms diesel Bentayga will get e-turbo tech from Audi SQ7
I think a lot of millionaires may be fairly environmentally conscious too, as well as liking the torque and the extended driving range.

Bentley Mulsanne facelift spied together with long wheelbase version (62 pics)
Front is awful, but side profile is stunning.

GM to reevaluate its lineup, could kill the Impala
Probably more of a question of platform efficiency: Mercedes Benz can give amazing variations now with its MRA platform: it underpins both the current C and upcoming E class. You can have very different sized cars sharing a lot of the costs efficiently.

Fully restored 1967 Ferrari Thomassima II hits eBay with $9 million buy it now price
You're almost certainly right: very interesting background to the car. It is not an official Ferrari...but it seems as close to official as any outside dreamer is ever going to get. http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/a6441/ferrari-thomassima/

Fully restored 1967 Ferrari Thomassima II hits eBay with $9 million buy it now price
Stunning, but what gets me is how to value something like this: $9 million seems to be perhaps a bit low, simply because it is less than 1/3 the price of a 250 GTO, of which I believe over 35 were made (not counting the numerous attempts to fake them), as opposed to only 3 of these. Sure, the GTO is in a class by itself, but I do wonder if it is 3 times the worth of this angel? Anyone know how cars like this are valued?

Mercedes-Benz celebrates Back to the Future Day with three short yet great videos
Pathetic: Back to the Future was a Toyota supported movie. This is just cheap, transparent sycophanting: Mercedes is better than this.

Ferrari shows off F12tdf's rear wheel steering system [video]
This technology has been used by Honda, BMW, Mazda and Mitsubishi over a quarter of a century ago in some cases...so has fuel injection, disk brakes etc. The fact is the tech has developed much in the years and offers real benefits to the driver. Ferrari may have a few issues but you can be sure if they include this kind of tech, it offers some real dynamic advantages to the driver. Just wait for the first reviews...

Volvo S90 spied on the inside without any disguise
Very Scandinavian minimalist and beautifully done. Amazing how this and the Pagani Huayra interior can be so totally, absolutely worlds apart yet both be design masterpieces.

Ferrari to boost production by 30% to 9,000 cars by 2019
They are with me around! Hell, if I saved all the money I spent on the crap that says "I make enough to buy this but nowhere near enough to buy their cars" I may have well had a used F430 by now...

I feel old all of a sudden...in the not too distant future, I will look upon Christopher Lloyd as a pretentious young buck...

I think this BMW has been speed limited to 250 km/h?

Ferrari IPO launched, stock to be listed on the NYSE under the symbol RACE
The valuation is too high with the current Ferrari production car numbers. But there is insane brand value in the name. What will happen is that Ferrari will increase production massively over the next few years, but the bulk of it will be going to places like India, China and other emerging markets. Won't be that many extra new Ferraris in mature markets...unless the Dino becomes a reality.

Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman spotted in Germany; needs two parking spaces [video]
Definitely need a power upgrade: the car will weigh around 3 tons even without armor plating...and I can't imagine too many unarmoured ones being ordered...

Lexus set to debut luxury concept car in Tokyo, likely previewing next-gen LS
Interesting that now Lexus buyers in their 40s have grown up in a high tech, stylish world: the bland, conservative style of the original LS400 is no longer what the likely crop of luxury car buyers want. Interesting to see how Lexus reads this...

Former Top Gear trio starts filming new show with LaFerrari, P1, 918 battle
The dream would be if they could get Chris Harris onboard too for this: you would never need to watch anything else on TV ever again.
