Fly Free Smart Motorcycles Brings Retro Styling and Electric Power

Electric Motorcycles Don’t Have to Look Futuristic I can’t deny that the future will likely come with a battery instead of a gas tank. This is true of cars and motorcycles. When that happens I will forever miss the sound and sensation that comes with an internal combustion engine. I won’t reject electric power’s merits, just gripe about the fact that a lot of electric bikes look weird. Most of the new electric motorcycles look like something out of a sci-fi comic.

Porsche’s Solution to Its Ongoing Pronunciation Problem/Conspiracy

Up until I was eleven, I pronounced Porsche in the plebeian, frowned-upon way. “I’ll take the Pour-sh,” I would tell my friends while we played racing video games and shoveled bags of chips into our mouths. Then I met an adult who actually owned one and they set me straight on the matter as I ogled […] The post Porsche’s Solution to Its Ongoing Pronunciation Problem/Conspiracy appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Retiree Trades Quintet of Toyota MR2s for One Mazda MX-5

Last week, a retired college professor walked into Missouri’s Coad Toyota with an interesting proposal. He was willing to part with five first-generation Toyota MR2s as a trade-in for a gently used 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata. Considering the amount of maintenance five vintage MR2s must require, maybe he’s not the absolute madman we initially presumed. Since […] The post Retiree Trades Quintet of Toyota MR2s for One Mazda MX-5 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Automotive Roundup: General Motors, Nissan-Renault and Audi

In this roundup, GM’s CEO makes (partial) amends, the Carlos Ghosn saga continues with a twist, and Audi finds itself looking for a better 2019.

Junkyard Find: 1984 Toyota Van

Customized 1984 Kawasaki GPz750 Turbo Makes 180 Horsepower

This Bike Will Satisfy Your Need for Speed There are few things I love more than 1980s Kawasaki sportbikes, especially ones that have been fiddled with. The GPz750 Turbo shown in the pictures allegedly makes 180 hp, according to its eBay seller. The seller states that before he had to downgrade his bike to its current state, it made a whopping 235 hp. With bikes sold on eBay, you never know if the seller is really telling the truth or not, but in this guy’s case, he probably is. Mike Chestnut o...
