Well, even the LFA caught fire during its development phase racing at the Nurburgring. That's what testing is for after all. As long as it doesn't happen on the production car a la the Ferraris it's...

I can't believe how many people continue to confuse Toyota's eCVT with CVT. Toyota really shouldn't have named the PSD the eCVT to confuse people to begin with. eCVT/PSD has nothing to do with CVT.

Great news, but if Lexus has any intention to succeed outside of America they'll need to offer smaller engine variants such as a 3.5L V6 or a 3.5L V6 hybrid. Ditto to the next-gen LS.

I see. Kind of makes sense though I know FI engines are a lot less altitude-sensitive than NA engines. I now think that the test could've been done on a slight incline, since it's highly unlikely...

That's quite an awful acceleration time for a 235hp CUV. I'm suspecting that the engine's trying to stay in Atkinson cycle far too much. It's hard to explain the apparent lack of low-end power...

Quite possibly the first real-world night shots of the NX

The NX caught in a photoshoot at night in Taiwan, apparently in preparation of an official launch. Looks quite good under the right lighting. :thumbup:...

It's a shame. Platform sharing is all about cost saving, but if they go as far as replacing 90% of the RAV4 chassis and adding 400 lbs to it and not really saving any costs, then why bother? They...

driving.ca review: 2014 Infiniti Q50 Hybrid AWD Sport vs 2014 Lexus IS350 AWD F-Sport

Pretty much in line with all the other reviews. Congratz to Lexus for another win, but IMHO there's no real winner, just different cars that fit different buyers of different priorities.:thumbup:
