Insurance Refund: Michigan Drivers Getting $400 Per Vehicle Next Spring

Despite being one of the last hero states to not require routine vehicle inspections, Michigan is infamous for boasting the highest auto insurance rates in the whole country. Blame the double-edged sword that is the state’s no-fault insurance scheme, the region’s relatively high number of uninsured motorists, or the general popularity of personal injury lawsuits […] The post Insurance Refund: Michigan Drivers Getting $400 Per Vehicle Next Spring appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Porsche leaves Formula E pre-season test better prepared than ever

After an extremely hard-fought five-session pre-season test session last week in Valencia, Spain, the Porsche Formula E team feels it is prepared for Season 8 of the championship. That’s good, because season 8 begins in just a month and a half with a double-header in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. Over the course of the test, Porsche drivers Andre Lotterer and Pascal Wehrlein covered a total of 820 miles between them, which is quite a lot considering each E-Prix is just 45 minutes long. While the car ...

This Porsche 944 is an excellent retro homage to Apple Computer’s racing days

Photo credit: Syd / @yourfriendsyd There exists an enigmatic artist in the American Northeast with an obsession for creating meticulously crafted images of cars and her terrible Porsche in perhaps equal measure. Syd is among the most creative photographers in the automotive world right now, and her most recent “Apple Car” shoot is all the proof you need to see why.  “That car [the Apple-sponsored 935 which raced in 1980] is kind of how I found my love of Porsche.

2022 Nissan Rogue: New Engine, Better Fuel Economy Top List of Improvements for 2022

Nissan is performing a double-take with its 2022 Rogue five-seat crossover. The Rogue got a complete redesign for the 2021 model year, but its waterloo has to be its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Although 181 horsepower and 181 lb-ft. of torque looks good on paper, the naturally-aspirated motor has laggard acceleration and so-so fuel economy, but the 2022 Nissan Rogue is changing all that. 2022 Nissan Rogue: What’s New?

Report: Volkswagen’s Porsche IPO is back on

Just over a month ago Volkswagen Group CEO Herbert Deiss assured everyone on the third quarter earnings call that the company would not be selling off assets. This came in the face of growing concerns that the company was looking to offload Lamborghini and Ducati, and that Porsche might be spun off with its own initial public offering. Porsche, in particular, is exploring an IPO as a way to fund its quite expensive transition to electric vehicles, according to a report from Reuters. The Taycan ...
