Audi A7 facelift spied for the first time
I disagree: the headlights design falls on the same line of design as the R8 (same middle daylight line) which was released prior to this Volvo concept. If I would have to be picky like you I would say it's the other way arround: Volvo got it from Audi R8. However I don't see what would be the problem. Nowadays everybody inspires everybody. Even if it would be inspired by this volvo concept, i don't see any problem. This is such a minor issue it doesn't even need to be mentioned. What is to be mentioned is the uniformity dullness of audi design. It ain't bad, but when all models look alike, damn that's boring!

Tesla Chief Designer says the BMW i3 is like a piece of IKEA furniture
Although the comparison is a bit immature, i agree in part with the remarks. I mean ok, the front end design looks really nice, a bit out of the box for bmw, in line with a niche small car, and preserving the identity for their "i" line up (see the superb i8); the back to me is just plain, nothing out of ordinary. But the side: omfg! it looks just stupid in my opinion! that broken sideline for the windows to me looks just horrible. Whereas for the i8 falls really nice with the rest of the design, here it looks like a chainsaw passed through the middle of the car splitting it in half, added a new different sized window, and then glueing it together. I may be too conservative, a sign of getting older, but hell that's un ugly piece of design. And saying that Tesla must be feeling the heat; to me it sounds like: ok, let's see what our comptetition has against us! Ahahaha! They came up with this???? From BMW? are they joking? This is an insult! ....in fact they don't have to worry about i3 at all! they are right to mock it! in a recent test by autobild the i3 against nissan leaf and renault zoe, although being 1st from the german point of view regarding quality of built materials, it has less interior space, more money and less range than the other 2 (wich was a mere 100 km, compared to 380km that Tesla has). No way this is in the same league as Tesla. BMW may be a leader in CI engines, but Tesla rules the electric world today. More likely they are frustrated that i8 is getting so much attention even though it is just a hybrid whereas their cars much more advanced technologicaly (full electric) are not getting the full aknowledgement and attention. And they are right!

2015 Subaru WRX leaked?
I just don't get it! I give up! How in the name of God and all that is holly can they come up with this piece of crappy design worse than the previous model everytime! They keep letting us down! And I had so much hope seeing the WRX Concept. Damn you Subaru! You just lost me for good!

2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class first exterior photos leaked
a lot of debate arround the fact that it looks like an S-class. I for one think it looks fabulous, in and out. It has set a new standard, a bar very difficult for A4 and 3 series, let alone the rest of the world, to reach. And for a C-class to look like an S-class it only increases the apeal of luxury. Wheareas for audi and bmw it's the other way arround: the 7 series looks like the 3rd and A8 like A4. But enough said about "the others". Just look at that great interior and curved, sculpted lines for the exterior. Gotta give it to Merc. Superb!

2015 Renault Koleos mule spied in the Alps
hmmmm what makes you guys say this is the next koleos? in my opinion this is the test mule for the next Espace. The next Espace will be more crossover than Van. So it makes sense a higher ground clearance and possible 4WD. A test mule for the next Koleos will most likely be a present day Koleos. Just saying....

Renault's 1.6 dCi 130 HP Energy to power next-gen Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Vito - report
Exactly! I can't even believe the childish remarques I'm reading on this post :)))))). Mercedes takes small engines from Renault, Renault takes big engines from Mercedes for Infiniti! A win-win situation in terms of money for them and most likely for the customer also. If the engines are good what, the hell!

2014 Corvette Stingray officially unveiled [VIDEOS]
well, i'm pleasantly impressed! you can see they tried hard (maybe a little to hard sometimes as some previous comments show in terms of little touches and design ligns). of course nowadays almost every new model takes inspiration from others in the branch (i'm seeing some audi r8 interior hints) but that's a good thing in my opinion. i really like the exterior (despite the viper resemblance).

2014 Audi RS6 Avant officially unveiled
my God this looks good! awesome! they tried and tried with the same design that often led us seeing the same lines in every audi (wich tend to look dull when they're all the same) but this looks astonishing! a new dream has been born!

2014 Nissan GT-R will attempt to set a new Nurburgring lap record - report
they have all the know-how from formula 1 they will ever need from one of the best: Renault! But I agree, they should buy Lotus cause what Renault-Nissan lacks is a name. And Lotus would be a nice and prestigeous addition

2013 Audi S3 breaks cover [video]
isn't it odd that a heavier 4 door sedan like subaru impreza sti was making 5.5 sec to 100 km/h with a 2 litre 265 hp and a manual a decade ago and only now audi arrives at the same performance? no wonder i always loved subarus...and not for their designs particulary

Renault-Nissan to take over AvtoVAZ
it's not me who counted! it's their own results for 2011 announced at Detroit, data presented in an article from BBC regarding this topic and results from OICA - International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers....and wikipedia also :) They say R&N sold 8.03 million cars last year, making them the 3rd biggest manufacturer in the world in terms of SALES!

Renault-Nissan to take over AvtoVAZ
dude, what the hell? :)))))they've been together since 1999!!!! the french are good accountants so they brought the money, the japanese have a good technology so they brought the know-how. they are the 3rd biggest constructor in the world!!!! (in terms of volume, after GM and VW). So even if they are not in the spotlight like other big manufacturers (BMW, Mercedes, Toyota, Honda, Ford, Chrysler etc), they outsell them! the colaboration goes from sharing platforms to sharing engines (Infiniti uses V6 diesel, other nissans 1.5 dci... nissan teana is the new samsung SM7 or new renault talisman and so on...). But yeah, besides Europe, I don't think you can really find them both in the same market. And that russian factory - Avtovaz, like anything else in Russia, is the bigest factory in the world, a mammoth. Has the capacity to produce 1 million cars per year!!!!

Infiniti Emerg-E concept was based on the Lotus Evora - report
so Renault-Nissan are high up there with the big boys in term of volume, sales; nissan is pretty much up there with one car in terms of performance (GT-R); renault is really up there for years in Formula 1 and make a decent line-up of sport compact cars in terms of value (RS series from twingo, clio and megane). They have the money, they have the technology...why on earth don't they buy Lotus???? They would gain in this edgy knowledge and have a valued brand with emotional ...stuff attached to it! They would gain in image for their cars and Lotus would have proper financing to do what they know best (proper sports cars and racing technology)! i can't figure out why for so many years they haven't made a move on a name like Lotus! all the other big manufactureres have a cool brand (or more) in their yard!

I am surprised other constructers haven't done it earlier...especially on high performance expensive vehicles (justify the investement). Thanks Ferrari for sharing this!

Subaru BRZ STI concept revealed - confirmed for LA debut
heeeey, me like! this is actually a nice little surprise from Subaru! 300 hp boxer engine rear wheel drive and 1300 kg (I suspect a 100 kilos heavier than Toyota)? sounds really good! i`m not to fond with the lack of marque image for Subaru from the last years (in terms of design), but than again when you look at the "matrioshka" design from the big germans, this is quite ok. i was expecting worse than toyota, but it looks better!

2013 Dodge Viper to feature an 8.7-liter V10 - report
I`m not arguing with that! Of course a product of a niche like the Viper should stay true to what sets it apart, otherwise it would just be in the pack, more dificult to stand out. My point, with the risk of repeating myself, is why go from 8.4 to 8.7 liters for just 10 cylinders for just 600 hp? You could well achieve the same feeling and unique-ness and horsepower with a 6.5 or a 7 liter engine benefiting from a lower weight, lower consumption. The technology is there. My guess is they want to keep it cheap by not investing in fine tuning and at the same time create something that`s not out there like a huuuge 8.7 liter engine. The problem is that it will stay just there, in America, and that`s a pitty cause I always thought the first model looked so damn well in that red.

2013 Dodge Viper to feature an 8.7-liter V10 - report
what in the name of God!!! 8.7 liter engine for just 10 cylinders for just 600hp? what is this, a tractor? a truck? we've got a 8.0 liter W16 1000 hp....we have also a 6.0 V12 TDI with 500 hp...and they come up with THAT??? what is this....1930's? they are soooo far behind. No ofence, the americans might be good in many other areas, but engines is not one of them! just copy the europeans and the japanese and stop waisting money on stupid things like this! can you imagine they paid "engineers" for that?!!
