Carmakers go to great lengths to ensure their offerings don’t get released early- so when the 2015 Land Rover Disco got leaked as a toy, it was hilarious!
This car you see here is the Lexus CT200h F Sport Hybrid, and I want to get one thing perfectly, utterly, unmistakably clear before we get too far into this review. That one thing is this: when I picked up my drop dead, melt-your-socks gorgeous attorney for dinner in the Lexus F Sport last week, […]
he 2015 Lexus RC300h hybrid coupe was first shown at last year’s Tokyo Auto Show, but it arrived at NAIAS 2014 w/ a V8 powered brother- and they look good!
Lexus first started talking up the possibility of a sportier, more aggressive hybrid luxury sedan two years ago, when they trademarked “CT300h” and “CT400h” to go along with their then-new CT200h hybrid luxo-hatch. We may not have gotten the 300 HP, V8-engined super hybrid that the “400h” moniker suggested (or that Acura, clearly, expected), but […]
Toyota is set to launch its newest Lexus hybrid at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon. Called the RC300h and based on the compact Lexus IS sports sedan, the RC300h “sport hybrid” promises sporty, RWD handling in a curvaceous coupe body meant to take on BMW’s upcoming 4 series coupes and convertibles and the new Acura […]
The new Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD, the flagship of the Acura llineup, will be on display at the Los Angeles International Auto Show after November 20.
Volkswagen’s 260 MPG XL1 supercar is a marvel of low weight and aerodynamic design – and the XL1 has always struck us as a new breed of supercar that used all the high-tech materials and design concepts that made Porsches, Lamborghinis and Bugattis special, and applied them to a “go far”, rather than a “go […]
The bad news is that there’s not a lot of backstory on this latest entry in Gas 2’s Recycled Hawtness series, presented by the techs from a Spanish motorcycle shop in Alicante, Spain called Sport Production. The good news is that there doesn’t need to be. Quite simply put, this video captures the story of […]
The Frankfurt auto show is usually the beginning of a model year’s auto show season, and this year is no exception with a host of 2014 models being shown for the first time. BMW is starting us off with a bit of 2 wheeled news this morning, having recently announced that the company’s C Evolution […]
Swedish automaker Volvo has been pushing the envelope of safety technology for decades, but the last few years have seen the company start pushing green technology. In addition to advanced research projects like Volvo’s XC60 Plug-in Hybrid concept, the C30 Electric coupe, and the company’s flywheel hybrid system, Volvo’s green initiatives have led to cars […]
Chris’ petition to Ford trying to convince the blue oval boys to bring their “world-market” diesel Ranger to the US has been, comment-wise, one of the most popular posts in Gas 2’s short five-year history. Despite our pleas, increasingly stringent CAFE standards on light trucks, the recession, the complete absurdity of driving a full-size pickup […]
As far as electric cars go, the Nissan Leaf is pretty much the top dog as it is. Some car reviewers have labeled it more appliance than automobile, and traditional outlets like Car & Driver haven’t minced words when it comes to the Leaf’s track performance. But Car & Driver actually went a step further, […]
ERA’s sporty electric RaceAbout coupe is a slick, 380 hp, all-carbon, 4WD Finnish sportscar powered by 4 hub-mounted electric motors that are enough to propel the car to triple-digit speeds. The ERA crew has already proven the worth of their car’s hardware at events like Progressive’s Automotive X-Prize and trackdays at Germany’s famous Nurburgring. Now, […]
We’ve covered BMW’s new maxi-scooters since they were drawings, on through the prototype stage, and now – finally! – they’re in production, coming to a BMW dealer near you early next year. It’s no wonder we’re excited about the new BMW maxis. They’re fast, they’re refined, and – offering 50+ mpg fuel economy and more […]
It’s no secret that Toyota is planning to add production versions of its Prius c subcompact and Prius v micro van concepts to its growing Prius sub-brand. The latest news out of Toyota, though, suggests that a new (previously unseen) 2-door coupe may emerge hot on the heels of those 2 new Prii as early as […]
Hey ya’ll, sorry about the lack of updates. I have been moving into my new apartment, leaving little-to-no time for writing. I am finally settled though, and ready to get back into the action with a car that has been on my mind for a few weeks now. Actually, it has been the song “Another […]
As electric cars begin to roll out of factories, every car company is taking a different stance. Some are sitting on the sidelines, watching what will happen, others are placing safe bets with hybrid cars. Nissan, however, seems ready to charge full-speed ahead with electric vehicles, even though the only people to drive the Leaf […]
I much prefer driving on four wheels than two. Personal preference is all, though I’ve got plenty of friends who get their kicks on motorcycles. Most of them like to ride crotch rockets, those Japanese bikes that are little more than an engine and two wheels. Besides going fast as all hell, these bikes are […]
The Nissan LEAF is coming, and it could be the catalyst that makes electric cars more than just a pipe dream. Nissan says orders have already exceeded expectations and the hype around this little electric car is poppin’ (to use the vernacular of our times). Reality may dampen some expectations though; the 100 mile range […]
