To be clear, they're saying the '15 uses HD radio service to get traffic data to put on the navigation screen. The 2013 does have HD radio for listening to radio stations but uses SiriusXM satellite...

That's too bad, because I think that is exactly what Lexus should do: Create a GT version of the RC F that is tuned for performance and not luxury and sell about 500 as exclusive, high-performance RC...

That is not a correct representation of a VW strategy. Porsche entered the LMP1 class this year as their own initiative - which was approved by VW. If VW had vetoed it because of Audi, Porsche would...

Sounds like that salesman knew what he was doing. But I'd still try to get a test drive of the Vette.

Yea, I would too, but I've not heard anything that says they will. I don't want to start a rumor.

I do think Lexus should standup an RC-F factory team and cars in TUSCC GTLM Class. That would show...

Thanks for this thread, it's a good one.

Well since we're comparing F1 to other race venues, I will say I am a fan of F1 but not so much of NASCAR.

I like endurance sports car racing best -...

As a (mostly TV) spectator, I prefer the ISMA and WEC sports car races to F1 (although the Bahrain F! race was really good). If I were to trek to Austin this fall, it would be for the WEC race, not...

Some of the teams, like Lotus, are barely able to field...

Yes, the switch to the new formula has totally reset and shaken up the playing field. I think the Bahrain race was the most fun to watch of any in the last year or two, at least.

The IMS is not an issue for any Cayman (or other 987 / 997 Porsche starting about 2006 with the M97 Engine).

Earlier 986 Boxters and 996 911 are susceptible to IMS issues. There was no 986 Cayman....

[QUOTE=Vladi]You want GT speed?

Very cool, but that's not a GT-class car, it's a prototype-class car for WEC sports car endurance racing. GT cars are based on production cars.

Saw "Rush" and liked it a lot. The medical scenes were a little hard to take and it could have used more racing footage.

I also like "Grand Prix" (1966) which features a lot of good race footage...
