2014 Lexus CT200h Sport Hybrid is New. Really.

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 […]

Don't Buy It, Build It: Teardrop RV

From rolling testaments to high-end architectural talent to DIY weekend projects to weird-looking, fiberglass Prius tumors, we love RVs here at Gas2. Why wouldn’t we?

Toyota and Gazoo Racing trotted out this hot little hybrid number just before this weekend’s Nurburgring 24-hour endurance race (which, incidentally, was won by Porsche). The GRMN ii takes up where Gazoo’s first hybrid concept (based on the 3-rd generation Toyota MR2) leaves off, with slinky new bodywork that plays off Toyota’s MR2 design heritage […]

Clean Sports Car Startup Seeks Funding On eBay

Who doesn’t love eBay? I made a small fortune in college buying my text books for a semester and then selling them (always at a profit) on eBay at the end of the term. It has also helped me track down obscure parts for my stable of perpetual project cars. Besides books and car parts, […]

Nissan Working On Electric LEAF-Based Sports Car?

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 […]
