Delivering more than 900 horsepower in a controlled, low-emission fashion is what the Switzer Performance E911 Porsche flex-fuel performance PKG does.
This is all in French, and Google’s translate tool can’t possibly be right. If it is, my fellow scooterists had better hold on to their feetie-socks, because this MXS 90 racing engine from Maxiscoot sounds like it’s ready to raise some serious Hell at next season’s Twist n’ Gone. The specs sound insane, and Google […]
I was there when Ford debuted its new-for 1999 Mustang Cobra with its “revolutionary” new independent rear suspension. The IRS was a first for the Ford Mustang, and it was a move that Ford’s brass believed would allow the “new edge” Cobra to compete with cars like the BMW M3 for supremacy in the budget […]
According to the guys at Switzer Performance, the car you see here is (which I got to drive, briefly, back in October) represents an all-new idea. In its finished form, this is a 1350 HP hypercar that rockets to a top speed of 225 MPH and asks nothing more from the driver than to sit […]

The greenest car is the one that’s already been built … and the stunning Porsche 356 shown here is a shining example of that idea. This 1959 Porsche 356 convertible blends the Bauhaus styling of Germany’s classic sports car with the modern technology of a Subaru WRX-derived engine!
You know TommyKaira from your Playstation – but it’s real, and their new electric sportscar with a former Sony President at the helm. The car, itself, promises stunning performance from its 305 hp, 300 lb-ft electric motor, which pushes it to a quick 0-60 time in just over 3.9 seconds.
How to make cars and bikes go faster is a subject that’s been near and dear to my heart (and paycheck) for 15 years now – and I’ve had a chance to play with hybrid rally cars, ethanol dragsters, and CNG-powered street beasts. Still, I haven’t had the chance to build a Seriously sikk EV, […]
The Spanish tuning house RBM Sport has developed a “bolt on” package that allows Porsche’s Boxster S to run on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG, or “autogas” in Europe). Christened the Porsche Boxster “Ecologic,” the car can be started and run on conventional gasoline, and “switched” to LPG from inside the cabin. RBM claims the little Porsche […]
