Everyone here already knows I'm a smart-a**. I love cars, I have a bachelors in electrical engineering and I'm paying for that education as a certified technician. I work on all Eurotrash, but Mercedes is my specialty.

2016 Porsche 911 Carrera to have a 2.7-liter turbo with up to 407 PS
Their manual is quite literally PDK without the robotic actuators. Its pretty cheap for them to produce, so I doubt it will be going away in 911 anytime soon.

2015 Lincoln Continental concept breaks cover [videos]
I just dont see how they plan to compete without a RWD architecture. This is OBVIOUSLY not rwd, itll probably have standard AWD, but the proportions still scream FWD (just like the Flying Spur this shares a profile with). That being said, I REALLY like this! Lots of chrome, sharp detailing and st...

BBC announces Jeremy Clarkson exit from Top Gear
The winner is whoever picks the three up. They wont have the name, but history has shown the name means nothing without these three presenters. BBC just shot their golden goose.

Audi owner drives his TT for over 83,000 miles with no oil change
VR6, the "V" is 10.5 degrees, not the usual 60 degrees for even firing or 90 degrees for V8 modularity. This allows them to fit both "banks" under one cylinder head. Mount two of these side by side with a shared crankshaft and you have a W12!

BMW does this to maintain resale values so lease rates will stay consistent. Resale values are higher on 3-4 yr old BMWs because you KNOW its been serviced till 50K.

Is Ferrari recalling all 499 LaFerrari units due to fire risk?
The cars have to come apart like this all the time for regular service anyway. Because of that, Ferrari techs are some of the most highly skilled in the world. Besides, Ferrari has a spec for EVERY nut, bolt and fastener. Even the SCREWS are tq'd to spec. Its absolutely insane.

Bentley hints EXP 10 Speed 6 concept will spawn two-seater sports car
I mean, the design is nice and all but im not as enamored as everyone else seems to be. A slight increase in wheelbase to reduce that front overhang would do wonders for the proportions, and that toad nose hasnt grown on me no matter how many times I come back and look at it. F-type is still the p...

Aston Martin DBX Concept revealed, previews the future of the GT segment
At the present time, most countries still require a fail safe physical connection between steering wheel and wheels, even with steer-by-wire. With ESP matured and electric assisted steering being all the rage these days, steer-by-wire isnt quite the shenanigan you think. Most of the hardware and s...
