2022 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe: Bigger, Bolder & More Aerodynamic

The 2022 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe is the second-generation model of the German automaker’s 4-Series hatchback. Right off the bat, the resemblance between the all-new 4-Series Gran Coupe and BMW’s all-electric i4 is uncanny. Although the 2022 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe is just half an inch longer than a regular 4-Series Coupe, the new model is significantly bigger, longer, and broader than the first generation. The latest four-door 4-Series is 5.9-inches longer, one-inch wider, and 2.1-inches tall...

Porsche Commemorates the Mercedes-Benz 500 E’s 30th Anniversary

Photo credit: Porsche If you thought Porsche’s first sedan was the Panamera, you’d be wrong. The brand isn’t a stranger to four-door vehicles because it has a history of collaborating with other automakers building fast sedans, wagons, and hot hatches. The Volvo 850 T5R and Audi RS 2 were just some of the vehicles that Porsche helped develop. One of the most recognizable, however, is the Mercedes-Benz 500 E, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary Its blend of comfort and performance made it ...

IWC - Pilot's Chronograph AMG Edition

 pilot / ˈ p ʌɪ lət/ Noun A person who operates the flying controls of an aircraft. By this definition, one would think that a pilot’s watch means a watch for the person who operates or flies an aircraft. Of course, by the same definition, a diver’s watch should be for someone who “dives”.   However, as we all know, watches designed for a specific purpose or style no longer applies to the wearer these days. Therefore, one could say that the design philosophy could also be freed up, ...

A Young Janis Joplin Plays a Passionate Set at One of Her First Gigs in San Francisco (1963)

From her early, unhappy teen years in Port Arthur, Texas, Janis Joplin seemed to know she wanted to be a blues singer. She once said she decided to become a singer when a friend “loaned her his Bessie Smith and Leadbelly records,” writes biographer Ellis Amburn. “Ten years later, Janis was hailed as the premier blues singer of her time. She paid tribute to Bessie by buying her a headstone for her unmarked grave.” She was devoted to the blues, from her earliest encounters with the music i...

Virtuo raises $96M for its streamlined take on car rentals

Car ownership has become pricey and untenable in many towns and cities in Europe: between congestion charges to reduce emissions, parking fees, and traffic, many consumers opt instead to use public transportation, two wheels, cabs or their own legs to get around. To add to that mix for longer journeys, today a startup that’s building a new take on car rental is announcing some funding to scale out its service. Virtuo, a Paris-based startup that has built a very streamlined, all-digital approach ...

A Look Back at the Porsche 911 GT, McLaren F1, and Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR

When McLaren won the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans with the F1 GTR entered in the GT1 class, Porsche decided to challenge it a year later with the 911 GT1. Porsche succeeded in beating the McLaren F1; however, that was short-lived because Mercedes-Benz’s CLK GTR essentially killed the class. Carfection has gathered all three legendary street-legal race cars for a group test with the help of some very, very generous owners and DK Engineering. Racing in the GT1 class required a road-going version of th...

Mercedes-Benz: Speed Limited Radio Spots

According the reports of conducted researches in Ben-Gurion University and Purdue University, what we listen on the wheel affect our driving style. The tempo of the music can cause a calm or aggressive driving. We wanted to promote the new A-Class Sedan’s adaptive cruise control feature using this information. We created radio ads that detect speed limit and adapt. We designated different speed limit locations such as 50, 90 and 120-kilometers. Then we designed 3 different rad...

2022 Hyundai Kona N: Hyundai Built a Fast Kona & It’s a Good One!

Hyundai spent the first few months of 2021 teasing its newest Kona N high-performance crossover. The beans were recently spilled on the 2022 Hyundai Kona N, and it’s everything we hoped for in a small, fast, and relatively affordable SUV. Hyundai’s N Line reminds me of the early days of BMW’s M and Mercedes-Benz’s AMG divisions, except for one thing: Hyundai N models (including the new Kona N) won’t cost an arm and a leg to enjoy the fun. “Kona N is a true hot SUV with the performance level o...

How Does A Vintage Porsche’s Performance Compare To A New Compact Crossover?

A lot can change in 33 years. Porsche's 911 Carrera 3.2 was the top dog back then. It had just gotten a fresh G50 gearbox with hydraulic clutch actuation and smoother shifts, but not much had changed, mostly because it wasn't broke and Porsche didn't have to fix it. The car was brilliant to drive in its day, and frankly still is. Today, however, everything on the road is ridiculously quick. The theory from the folks at The Fast Lane is that a basic modern turbocharged crossover is going to offe...
