First Porsche Prototype, the Electric P1, Headed to Museum - Motor Trend WOT
The first Porsche prototype, the 1898 Porsche Egger-Lohner electric vehicle C.2 Phaeton Model, is headed to a museum.

Porsche’s tradition of mounting powerplants in the ass-end of its vehicles goes back further than the casual enthusiast could ever imagine. True, the first Porsche was the 1948 Type 356, but that was only the first Porsche-branded vehicle. The Stuttgart-based automaker just uncovered Ferdinand Porsche’s first car, the 1898 Porsche Egger-Lohner electric vehicle, C.2 Phaeton model.

2015 Ford F-150 Plant Retooling Expected to Lower 2014 Profits

January 29th, 2014
2015 Ford F-150 Plant Retooling Expected to Lower 2014 Profits - Motor Trend WOT
Product changeovers could contribute to lower 2014 profits for the Blue Oval.

While Ford expects to turn a profit in 2014, the automaker is projecting a lower overall margin compared to 2013. The lower expected margins are due in part to model changeovers including plant closures required for retooling to build the new aluminum-intensive 2015 Ford F-150.

TOTD: What Other Vehicles Should Use More Aluminum Parts? - Motor Trend WOT
With the aluminum-intensive 2015 Ford F-150 just around the corner, we want to know what other models you think should use more aluminum.

Rumors of an aluminum-intensive 2015 Ford F-150 were confirmed when the full-size pickup was revealed earlier this month at the 2014 Detroit auto show. With 2015 F-150 models losing up to 700 pounds (depending on model and bodystyle), the use of the lightweight material is expected to improve fuel mileage and capability. We want to know what other cars you think should use more aluminum in their construction.

Planning a Girlfriends Getaway to South Africa

January 29th, 2014
Cape Town, Africa

I had promised myself that 2013 would be the year I would finally have the life-changing experience I’ve always wanted.  And just 14 days into the year, I received my itinerary for South Africa.

Because I look at South Africa as an investment in myself both personally and professionally, I’m splurging and doing the trip right with African Travel.  However, because travel to South Africa is an investment and I knew I couldn’t afford my whole family to go, I asked my girlfriends. … Read More

2014 Bentley Flying Spur – First Drive

January 29th, 2014
2014 Bentley Flying Spur - European Car Magazine
As it stands, the 2014 Bentley Flying Spur is a confident change of direction for a brave new world.

Objects in the mirror may be closer than they appear and, in this instance, everything is too close for comfort amid the maelstrom of traffic. The sharp detail lines tapering over the rear fenders to the Spur’s new pinched rear-end are in serious danger of being punctuated by damaging contact with the traffic.
