My only question is, how long will support for his cars exist? They're a small boutique company (relatively speaking) so I'm curious how long you will be able to buy replacement or spare parts.

He's using the Freevalve engines in small Chinese vehicles first. He wants it to be mainstream and that's a great way to test them. Read the article I linked - it explains the testing numbers and...

Nope, not unless you can beat the Miata with more power for the same money (or barely any more money). Mazda uses a corporate engine (more or less) for the Miata and they have a model life of 10...

A friend of mine took me out for a spin in his Model 3 yesterday. He has the "Standard" version, so not the most powerful or quickest but still plenty quick. Acceleration was excellent. It FEELS...

I see a lot of S2000 there, mainly in the long hood/short trunk aspect. I like it a lot! I wouldn't buy it new but I'd buy it used, if it had decent power. Big depreciation and a big warranty...

Nice! Always good to hear when it works out to your satisfaction.

That's a great color for the car and like you said, you know it's been carefully maintained and driven. :thumbup:

You could also look at the Infiniti Q50 series, as they're quite reliable and offer AWD.

But cars are using the exact same technology. Again, it goes back to two things: weight and aerodynamics. The only time they're both "using" the same amount of fuel is when they're shut off or...

I think it's more than CUVs and even SUVs have gotten much more fuel efficient overall. You don't have to "put up with" 17-20 city mpg in your five-seater SUV now. There are plenty that will do 25...

They certainly have a "corporate design language" - this thing is a perfect result of the marriage of a Model X and a Model 3. It looks silly, it uses that stupid corporate nose, and looks somewhat...

I think it comes down to the difference in acceleration profiles between the two cars. With lots of torque, the rate of acceleration is roughly constant from low revs to high revs (but the rev...

You aren't insisting on RWD (though all the cars on the list are AWD or RWD) so I'll add a 2014+ Honda Accord Sport with 6MT. Tons of space, dead reliable, cheap to own and you get a relatively new...

It's still a rumor about the Civic Type R becoming a hybrid. The additional cost and weight (to make it AWD, effectively) are somewhat outside of Honda's intent with the car.

The Honda isn't planned for North America.

The Volvo looks weird to me, like it can't decide what it is.

The Jag looks the best but it's not a large vehicle (at all). Cool but pricey!
