Just end the misery and close the division already. This will appeal to the blind and senile.

Aftermarket tuning is dead. Just look at how many of those "tuner" magazines still exist these days.

So when the RC convertible debuts, its going to be even heavier with all the required bracings and such just like the IS-C needed, with the same mid section.

Even if the weight is more or similar, what the RCF is missing will be low end torque and 4wd which the Benz will have to offset the weight. In addition, it will have similar HP numbers soooo, the...

Nothing wrong with extra engine choices. The germans have no problems with it. 2.0T with 250hp or so and a 3.5 V6 making about 310-320hp makes for enough of a separation in power number to justify...

This just sent shudders up the spines of Toyota and it's Highlander designers. The 300lb weight loss is impressive combined with better fuel economy and a more solid body as opposed to Toyota...

For a truck approaching 8 or 9 yrs old already, it looks beautiful still. Adding DI and etc, improves FE by about 10% perhaps, but still dismal. What it needs is a weight loss with more exotic...

Looks like the media picked up on the 2 LFA's that sold this month and the few still unsold ones. Not good for its reputation.

If the production model looks anywhere close to it without all the aero body kit, it makes the NSX and Ford GT looks kinda....plain.

Why would an extra 80 some horsepower cost an extra $40k or so? I can't wrap my head around that figure. Would a turbo, an intercooler, bigger brakes, and perhaps revised transmission cooler, cost...

Probably be a bit less than 300hp. This is a truck application that requires more low end torque to tow a heavier load.
