Porsche 911 Sport Classic Caught on Video at the Nürburgring

Photo credit: Automotive Mike via YouTube The endless stream of Porsche 911 variants continues and one of the upcoming additions is the Sport Classic. One of the giveaways that this is a Sport Classic is the ducktail spoiler, which was also found in the 997-generation car, the first to offer this variant built by Porsche Exclusive. That design cue pays tribute to the 1973 Carrera RS 2.7, which also had a ducktail spoiler, meaning you won’t mistake it for anything else. A closer look shows wider...

Micromobility’s next big business is software, not vehicles

The days of the shared, dockless micromobility model are numbered. That’s essentially the conclusion reached by Puneeth Meruva, an associate at Trucks Venture Capital who recently authored a detailed research brief on micromobility. Meruva is of the opinion that the standard for permit-capped, dockless scooter-sharing is not sustainable — the overhead is too costly, the returns too low — and that the industry could splinter. “Because shared services have started a cultural transition, people are...

Chip Shortage Forcing Daimler to Stall Production

In today’s update on the semiconductor shortage, we learn that Daimler has elected to place over 18,000 Mercedes-Benz employees on reduced schedules. With an insufficient number of chips, the manufacturer cannot produce vehicles with sufficient reliability and has decided to ease off until resupplies are more predictable. Unfortunately, that’s unlikely to happen for at least […] The post Chip Shortage Forcing Daimler to Stall Production appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

A Dozen More States Virtue Signaling Over Vehicle Bans

Having noticed that Washington got a bit of publicity for vowing to ban all vehicles reliant on internal combustion after 2030, a dozen other American states decided it would be a good idea to reaffirm their own religious-like commitment to the environment by saying they too will be restricting your choice of automobiles by 2035.

Molto Veloce: A Monster S4RS built for a retired racer

The custom scene in Brazil doesn’t get much recognition on a global scale, which is surprising. Last year, a whopping 900,000 bikes were sold in South America’s largest country, mostly by Honda—which has over 75% of the market. So when this Monster S4RS popped up we thought, ‘Finalmente!’ It comes from a Ducati specialist called SR Corse, based in Vila Madalena—the arts center of São Paulo. And it looks like one helluva ride. “Since 2016 we’ve been building custom bikes, mostly Ducati,”...

Type S Origin Story: A Look Back at Acura’s Type S History

It all started with the 1997 NSX Type S in Japan, which led Honda R&D engineers in America to create a prototype coupe called the AC-R. From 2001 through 2008, Type S models played a significant role in Acura’s performance lineup. This video from Acura looks back at the Type S models through the years as we get ready for a new era of Type S cars.  Original article: Type S Origin Story: A Look Back at Acura’s Type S History

‘Porsche Unseen’ Is A Rare Look Inside Porsche’s Design Studio

Porsche's design studio isn't based in some far-flung metropolitan like New York or Los Angeles or Tokyo. The company got its start in industrial design, after all, so why not keep everything in-house where it can be inspired by the depth of history and motor sport the brand is known for. That's why Porsche has kept its design studio in the quiet German town of Weissach. There's a reason Porsches look like Porsches, and could never be mistaken for another make. The whole company is so invested ...

Audi A6 e-tron concept: The Magnificent Return of “Vorsprung Durch Technik”

The Audi A6 e-tron concept made its debut at Auto Shanghai 2021. I’m a massive sucker for Audi concept vehicles. The brand has a habit of presenting concept cars that are 90 to 95 percent ready for production. And upon laying eyes on Audi’s magnificent-looking A6 e-tron concept, only three words entered my mind: Vorsprung Durch Technik. Setting The Stage The Vorsprung Durch Technik tagline is responsible for the high-tech persona of modern Audi vehicles. In English, it means Advancement ...

Photo credit: Alexander Kirch / The Porsche of today would be unrecognizable to the Porsche of the mid-1990s. Back then the company was in dire straits, struggling to sell 10,000 cars annually here in the U.S. market.

It did all of this while delivering its first of many electric vehicles, the Taycan sedan, forging new electric motor sport ties in Formula E, and co...
