A direct replacement for the ill-received inline-five […] The post Rare Rides: The Six-speed Acura TL, From 2005 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Porsche And Penske Team Up For IMSA And WEC Effort

Photo: Michelin Racing USA Team Penske has been kicking butt in racing for decades, and for a lot of that time the team has been powered by Porsche. Way back in the 1960s Roger Penske himself was racing various four-cam Porsche prototype sports racing roadsters. By the 1970s, Penske and hired driver Mark Donohue were a global force, and their Porsche 917/30 became known as an all-conquering machine in the Can Am series. More recently, from 2006 to 2008, the bright yellow DHL-sponsored Penske Po...

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.

The $200,000 Acura NSX supercar comes with a tricky chore: cleaning out the massive air vents down its sides

2020 Acura NSX. Kristen Lee The Acura NSX is a supercar, yet part of its design traps dirt and other debris after driving.
