Fisker bankruptcy could come later this week - report
Another small business that showed the big guys they could do it BETTER. It is a shame when their battery supplier goes bankrupt and many of their cars were damaged by Hurricane Sandy and the insurance company refuses to pay. A beautiful care with lots of potential!

Audi's LED technology considered eco-innovation by EU [video]
German tech has always lead the way in lighting and safety with cars. That is why there is an Autobahn there and not in the USA. Some of this Lighting tech is evolving so fast that the federal government must make new rulings to allow it in the USA. The USA was also a little slow on adopting mandatory stability control. Alright Audi! We also need more clean diesel tech please.

2014 Maserati Ghibli official photos and preliminary details available
Maserati is putting out some nice vehicles. I bought a new 2008 Granturismo and it is still running great without any major problems. It currently has 60,000 miles on the odometer and I only take it in for its yearly oil change and maintenance. Maserati has a great sound and handles great!

Tesla introduces a new lease program for the Model S
Again, Tesla is the only car company in the world that has a high performance EV. This is a forward thinking company, like an APPLE car company. I live on Hawaii where gas is always over $4/gallon. Essentially $100/fill up for 300miles. Even with Hawaiian 40 cent KWH electricity it will only cost around $6 dollars for at least 200 miles. We have many Nissan Leaf's and I have seen at least 2 Tesla S driving around. No more oil changes and tune ups. I want one.

Next-gen Tesla Roadster could accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than four seconds - report
Their is no other car company in the world, even the large manufacturers, that have mass produced cars like Tesla. Bravo Tesla for what others do not seem to be able to compare.

Fisker partnership talks breakdown, company eyeing bankruptcy - report
It is still amazing what a small company could do that the large ones could not. Yes, it was an expensive luxury car but to offer a new car from a new company for just $100,000. Ferrari and Lamborghini offer $200,000 plus cars not that they are that more superior but they produce them in small numbers. So it is sad they are having problems.

Smart ForTwo Electric Drive arrives in NY with 25,000 USD price tag
The price does not include the federal discount? So it would cost $7500 less than the $25000? That would make it the least expensive EV?

2014 Acura MDX debuts in New York [video]
I would buy it just because of the cool headlights. Acura always offers more options for a better price vs the competition. All their cars starting at $20,000 offered Xenon headlights just because of the safety aspect!

Audi boss says Lamborghini Urus is due late 2016
This would be an awesome vehicle. This will be the next SUV everyone will want especially since it will be a 4 seat lamborghini. I think I will sell my house and get a mortgage on this to drive around! Who cares about part sharing as it keeps cost down, the parts are field tested and Audi/Porsche/Bentley/Bugatti/lamborghini know how to make it all sing together.

2013.5 Chrysler 200 S Special Edition announced for New York Auto Show
I think Fiat is giving Chrysler the needed help/technology to be more competitive and surviving in the tough environment. I am waiting to see a hybrid or EV soon from them.

Audi A8 matrix-beam headlights banned in United States
Better illumination of the vehicle and the vehicles pathway do make things safer. It is because we let anyone drive a car(a right vs a privilege) that we need as many safety things as possible. 40,000 deaths a year in the USA is not acceptable and people should be screaming to the government. We need as many electric nannies as possible to make even the worst drivers better. I used to live in Arizona and they struck down the ban on texting while driving. Who are they protecting? Also in Arizona they just passed a law that it was ok to carry a weapon into a bar. They also made it ok to have a concerned weapon? Crazy!

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray costs 71,860 USD ?
I remember when the Cadillac XLR first came out and it was priced the same as its competitor the MBSL. If they priced it way less than the SL to prove itself as a competitor, its sales may have been better. They ended up discounting the car $10-$20000 and it finally ended production.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray costs 71,860 USD ?
Pretty expensive but the Top 1% can afford it. You would think that by now foreign car manufacturing labor would be as expensive or more so vs USA. So theoretically the US cars should be less expensive than comparable foreign especially since they are made here.

Chevrolet Volt & Cadillac ELR to adopt a three-cylinder engine - report
It does not seem you would need too large an engine to just be used as a generator for the batteries. I have heard BMW may use a small motorcycle engine for the i3.

Audi R10 diesel-electric supercar to have more than 600 hp - report
Audi is a huge automotive force to recon with. All the R & D of Porsche, Lambo, Bugatti, Bentley is a driving force that can take Audi to the top of the Heap very fast. Time will tell.

Hypercar and hybrids not considered by AMG
The car business is turning into a TOP 1% vs the rest. You are seeing some really expensive cars that only a few can afford with just a little more speed for alot more cash vs the mass produced vehicles. More traffic congestion and less areas that can take advantage of these hypercars makes them impractical as daily drivers and are definitely an exclusivity purchase primarily. I have had many expensive cars in the past, but a stock 911 was one of my favorites because the power is usable and you can through several gears around town before 100 mph. In other words, "it was fast enough!"

Maserati Ghibli design mockup leaked?
I have a 08 Granturismo and I would buy another. Other than yearly or 12,000 mile oil changes no dependability problems. This rendering the Ghibli is awesome. Also I get to hear that beautiful engine rev every morning as my daily driver!

This car should be outstanding both in looks in power/tech. BMW leads the way and others follow.

I love the 1 series M. Put a little hybrid tech in there to boost power with improved mileage.

Volvo V60 might come to the US - report
I think wagons could have a chance again especially with increasing gas prices. SUV's are wagons on steriods and just burn way more fuel.
