Texan couple extends Viper collection to a whopping 79 cars
To quote a genius -- insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. Not sure if that applies here but come on! This just seems to border some form of mental illness. If they're really viper aficionados like they proudly flaunt around why not purchase the car the viper was based on, the Shelby Daytona? A car to this day that would still kick Viper's A. Can't say its not in their price range all things considered.

Ford GT concept with covered badge displayed in London, nobody can identify it [video]
Whatever the goal, it doesn't mock Brits by any means. In fact, I think it says less about Ford and their brand recognition/identity than anything else. Good way to inflate a companies ego, though, even if 50% of what you're looking at is borrowed.

Chevrolet Camaro inexplicably ends on top of Subaru Outback and stays there
Three words: white liberal guilt. Comments such as these, unfortunately, are prone to the lefts misinterpretation and 'political correctness'. Sad.

2017 Ford GT without paint looks apocalyptic in these spy shots
"...working out of a scummy basement office." LOL, how gullible. Harmless propaganda courtesy of Ford motor co. Honda (nsx) and Nissan (2020) might want some consideration.

Hennessey selling a Venom GT for $1.4 million
If 1.4M isn't a vote of confidence then I don't know what is. Just have to duel it out/score some noteworthy kills.

One-off Bugatti Veyron backs into a LaFerrari [video]
I guess one can still consider that a lead since the Bugatti was technically ahead. A small, moral victory for Bugatti.

Skoda 130 RS reborn as the R200 Non-Fiction, based on Audi R8
Cute. Interesting take on an R8. Reminds me a lot of my dads old Chevy Corvair.

Watch the Porsche 918 Spyder set another lap record [video]
Saw this yesterday. Not to discredit Porsche and what they've accomplished with the 918, but I wonder if the selected drivers prior experience/familiarity/preference with the 918 played a role? Not to suggest bias here -- it seemed like a fair analysis and they performed more than one run, but still, some of what he said seemed to contradict what others who've raced the p1 have said. Warmer/heated tires usually mean faster track times, especially with the p1, so I'm sort of scratching my head over why he wasn't able to better his initial time? Second, the lack of confidence when cornering, never seeming to quite getting the hang of it, makes me wonder if McLaren should have brought one of their own drivers, less an additional engineer? Tenths of a second should have been doable. Anyway, too bad Ferrari was a no show, yet again. Porsche is the reining track king thus far!

Audi A8 5.5 launched with built-in rice cooker
Yeah, and its designated driver dependent, too, due to the fact that it runs on only the purest most highest grade Japanese Saki.

2017 Ford GT to cost around $400,000; annual production capped at 250 units
Form over function exemplified. Thank you Carol Shelby for making this... thing... possible. Why does Ford celebrating something that most aren't old enough to remember not surprise me?

See some classic Jag in there as well. Note to Mr. Arguden... if Porsche doesn't come calling...

Please. At least they can afford to do it themselves! Two words: government subsidies. Fisker, get lost!

Ferrari envisions Formula 1 car of the future
Orgasmic! Would have much rather stared at this for two hours instead of watching some nerdy chick flashing her daddy issues on the big screen (aka 50 Shades of Grey).

McLaren shows off the 675LT's rear end in latest teaser; will have 700 Nm torque [video]
So the whole premise was about cheap h/p and production cars? That's not the part that concerned me. Too much emphasis is being put on a soundbite of information while going into details that need no explaining. For every 1k rpm's (n/a) thats twice the pressure on a motor, i got that. Its what you implied, hence the tidbit on McLarens past I voiced to counter your claim. Back then, some felt turbos were necessary to compete at the highest level. Ironically, it wasn't McLaren Honda.

McLaren shows off the 675LT's rear end in latest teaser; will have 700 Nm torque [video]
...but have you actually seen the 650s or 12c other than in print or online? The rear unquestionably makes sense when you see it in person. I don't know why, but its one of the few cars designs out there that does not translate visually well on paper. So much is lost such as its stance, profile, and overall dimensions.

McLaren shows off the 675LT's rear end in latest teaser; will have 700 Nm torque [video]
As if the F-40 gives Ferrari more credibility in an era where McLaren Honda was absolutely dominating Ferrari. Didn't matter if McLaren used forced induction or N/A Ferrari had no answer. Of course you could argue they had no production car to offer but then what really matters? Championships or street legal road cars? As for turbos vs N/A, that agruement has been talked about ad nauseam. True naturally aspirated engines have more internal moving parts and operate at some ridiculously high rev's, forced induction technology has come a long way from what it used to be and it continuing to improve. Its a fallacy to believe one has more credibility over the other anymore. Still, if that is your case, McLaren was one of the few that was able to take Ferrari to the woodshed and give them a good spanking when they needed it.

Your senses betray you, for that is the smell of habitual win, not panic.

Ferrari 488 GTB revealed with twin-turbo V8 engine
This is what happens when Ferrari rolls up its sleeves and decides to 'get real!' Too bad the moniker "beast mode" is already taken.

The Ford GT was designed in basement to keep it away from prying eyes
Wow, really Ford? "Prying eyes"? Yeah, because the first thing I see when looking at the Ford GT is originality. Pssh... the hypocrisy is just overwhelming.

Meet the man who owns the hottest supercar trio: LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder
Pure envy! But... he broke every Man Law by handing the wifey the keys to the McLaren. Talk about irresponsible.

Ford highlights the design & creation of the new GT [video]
By that logic I guess its pure coincidence and fair game then. Forget intellectual property rights even if it serves only as a reference points of influence. Ford had no shame reverse engineering a Ferrari for the last GT and it seems their continuing trend of cutting corners has no end. That's not exactly reinventing the wheel unless you like looking at the world through Rosey colored shades.

Ford highlights the design & creation of the new GT [video]
I missed the part where they ripped off the Nissan 2020 Visions rear, Acura's new NSX's C-pilar, and the Ferrari's F-12 front end.

Acura NSX finally revealed in production form. Was it worth the wait?
Not that I don't like the front, I just think something got lost in translation that didn't need to. Mainly, the paint scheme where the headlights meet the front fascia; there's too much purposely blacked out there. I think I know why they did this still, no big deal and definitely nothing to complain about. Overall, absolutely love it! Just not sure I'm willing to give up the keys to my 95' for it just yet.

2016 BMW 7-Series caught undisguised
And the all encompassing cynicism abounds! Regardless, they'll be plenty of enviable eyes here starring at this beauty as she rolls past them with hardly any effort. I mark this as another win for BMW!

Google reveals its self-driving car in production form
Nice to know that superficial gut reactions prevail over purpose, function, objectives... Perhaps there's a reason for this design void? Trying looking a little deeper. Good thing the engineers over at Google don't value unnecessary form over function else they'd be catering to those who base things on semiconscious mental drifting and half-developed impressions.

Acura NSX production version to finally debut at NAIAS next month, teaser images released
Frustration over the new NSX's many delays is understandable; however, aesthetics aside, what most fail to consider are the many changes/redo's that have been made in its conceptual/philosophical approach, as well as internal indecisiveness over what power planet to use: conventional or alternative? I'm 100% sure the new nsx will be nothing short of bad ar.sse, perhaps even setting a new performance bar as the original once did.

Ferrari LaFerrari XX renderings show a future flagship supercar
The main spoiler retracts and sits between the two stabilizers (winglets). They are functional.
