    Saab 9x

    This is the first official look at the future of Saab. The 9x is the first step towards a production explosion that will see at least one new model unveiled every 12 months for the next six years. To be shown at next month's Frankfurt Motor Show, the 9x is only the second concept the firm has ever displayed. The news comes only weeks after we revealed plans and pictures of a Saab Coupé. However, sources say this has now been axed and the 9x, which seats four under a sloping glass roof, is set for production. A blend of estate car and coupé, with a massive front grille and air intakes, the car hints that bosses at parent firm General Motors have exciting plans for the Swedish brand. A Saab UK spokesman said: "In the short term, the 9x is only a concept. But if reaction at Frankfurt is favourable it could become reality, although it would be further down the launch cycle." The unveiling represents the start of an all-out attack on rival firms. An all-new 9-3 tops the list, with most other models pencilled in for production sharing the same platform. An off-roader, a cabriolet and new sports machines are definitely on the cards. http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/LotusGT1/newn...dia/1-3175.jpeg

    ESPRIT gets new rear! Look how hot!

    Hey what the fu*k else is new, no one likes it. Yo, seriously for a bunch of "Sportcar" enthusiasts you guys make yourselves out to be, you sure can never seem to appreciate the vitality of a legend like the Esprit or Lotus as a whole. Don't whine like a baby....
  6. The GT3 you mean was probably the Gemballa GTR600
  7. Funny concept I wonder how long till that system gets adapeted to some Hot-rod and they end up pulling like 1.5 G's on the skidpad!!! Hot Rod only have to drive straight

    Mini VS Morrin Minor

    My bad, didn't read too carefull...

    Mini VS Morrin Minor

    I disagree. Indeed Mini's were a bit crude, but the concept of the car was never shown before, and revolutionary for it's time. Look how big the mini-car sector is these days. Oldfashioned isn't a fitting description IMO.
  10. Bull, the way you reason the V8 is the most efficient engine there is. A 800 hp V12 will run easier than a 800 hp V8 at higher speeds... V8's are no better or worse than any other line-up...

    Panoz Esperante vs Qvale Mangusta

    The engine is a tuned 4.6 liter Ford engine. I would go for the Qvalewhich at least has italian style. On TV the handling was praised. The Panoz looks too tame IMO...
  12. - Larger tires cause faster aquaplaning, that's a fact - Kurenai, if you reason like that you actually compare different setups with different purposes

    Thanks, I didn't know that...learned another thing today, I can sleep happy now.... btw, the spoiler on the Supra rules....
  15. Which car gets better gasmileage in the city, with much acceleration and deceleration, a NA 4-cyl. or a V8 ? It's not like the V8 is the most economic engine in the world...othrwise econo-cars would have V8's, right ???
