Used Car Duel - Subaru SVX vs. 996 Carrera 4

Used Car Duel - Subaru SVX vs. 996 Carrera 4

The Subaru SVX was known as the poor man's Carrera 4 because of its technical similitudes. Both cars were 2+2 AWD GT with boxer engines.

Back in the mid 90's, the SVX was the obvious choice because It was half the price of the Porsche and just as good, with even a better interior. Ironically (or is it karma) the SVX became a classic, if not a cult car, and appreciated rapidly while the...

OQOTD - What Is The Most Underrated Car On The Market Today

OQOTD - What Is The Most Underrated Car On The Market Today

Todays’s QOTD is running late so let’s have one between us. I will compile and share the results later or maybe tomorrow.

Some very good cars are getting no coverage at all and noboby buys them, that’s a shame. Saab and Suzuki comes to mind. On the other hand, some cars are getting raving reviews while not being that good at all.

What car for sale right now should people care a bit more about ?

Large Planes Face-Off : Boeing 747-8 VS Airbus A-380

For those in the market for a large passenger aircraft, there’s only two options, but that doesn’t mean it’s an easy decision. The comparative review below will hopefully help potential customers making the right decision.

History :

The 747 has been an icon of commercial aviation since its introduction in 1969, but the current 747-8 has very little in common with the 100 to 400 series. The 8...

The 2 Best Automakers Are Former Ford Sub-Brands

The 2 Best Automakers Are Former Ford Sub-Brands

Happy Easter everyone, Today we're going to talk about resurrection.

Under Ford's umbrella, both Mazda and Volvo lost their ways and became somewhat irrelevant. Volvo got rid of its trademark R-cars, kept the first gen S60 on the market for way way way too long, and was competing with Jaguar and Land Rover for the most unreliable car award.

Meanwhile is Nagasaki, Mazda was being force to go...

How To Save Scion

So here’s the plan :

Take the JDM Toyota Century
Put the steering at the correct place
Put the side mirrors at the correct place
Drop the Tundra V8 in lieu of the expensive and finicky V12
Remove all the fancy stuff
Install vinyl bench seatsBuild it in North...

The Sud Aviation Caravelle Was The Citroën Of The Sky

The Sud Aviation Caravelle Was The Citroën Of The Sky

Innovative, beautiful and poorly executed are adjectives that generally applies to Citroën cars, but it also applies to the Sud Aviation Caravelle, the first ever short/medium plane without propellers.

The story of this quirky “Franchouillard” metallic bird began in October 1951, when 2 gentlemen for the French Civil Aviation committee, conveniently named Hervé and Didier, decided to mandate...

The Hyundai Veloster Is The Contemporary Saab 900 We've Been Demanding

As purists, we all felt cheated when General Motors decided to go full ISIS against SAAB and chopped up its head.

We had some hope that it would be saved, there were rumors that BMW might be interested in the brand, but they were obviously too busy thinking about their future FWD minivan roadmap to take a good, sensible decision and acquire SAAB. We were left with Spyker, a tiny manufacturer...

The Corvair Was Safer At Any Speed

The Corvair Was Safer At Any Speed

Ralph Nader built its successful polemicist career on the back of the Chevrolet Corvair by pretending that some of its handling characteristics such as a propensity to “snap-oversteer” made it unsafe for motorists. The thing is, Ralph Nader was wrong

I’m not here to pretend that the Corvair was not a bit tricky to drive, but I’m here to demonstrate that such characteristics can actually make...
