Audi A1 is Awesome.

The smallest Audi will officially go on sale in Europe with four drivetrains; two gasoline engines and two oil-burners putting power down through the front wheels via a seven-speed S-tronic transmission or six- and five-speed manual. The 1.2-liter or 1.4-liter TFSI either throws down 86 in wimpy form or 122 HP with a 0-to-62 MPH time of 9.1 seconds and EU test cycle 44 MPG. A larger 1.6-liter TDI stirs the pot a bit more with 185 lb-ft of torque, 105 HP and 60 MPG. If you really must, another version of the same TDI squeezes out 62 MPG.

OMG Hybrid Porsche?

Stuttgart plans to bring a hybrid 911 racing car to both Geneva and the Nurburgring 24-hour race. The press release includes the line “the focus is not on… winning the race.” What’s wrong with this picture?

Like all 911s, the hybrid GT3 R sports a horizontally opposed six-cylinder mounted behind, and driving, the rear wheels. Unlike all 911s, however, it has electrically powered front wheels. Two electric motors live underneath the hybrid GT3′s nose; they are paired with a 40,000-rpm “electric flywheel power generator” mounted inside the cockpit. Surprisingly, there is no large battery pack (Porsche stated last year that current battery technology did not meet its “strict requirements”). The hybrid system can be used, at the driver’s discretion, to provide extra power or fuel efficiency on demand.

Diesel>Everything: 2011 VW Touareg Hybrid Is Less Efficient Than The Diesel

So the new 2011 VW Touareg Hybrid that the maker of people’s cars is so proud of? 28.68 MPG combined. The 2011 VW Touareg V6 TDI? 31.78 MPG combined. Honestly, is our country that stupid that the krauts think they can get away with this?
Being fair to the hybrid, it can travel up to 31 MPH in all-electric mode, but there’s no indication of what it’s all-electric range will be. Also, in what VW is calling a “Quantum Leap!” the base Touareg is now 459 Lbs lighter than the model it replaces. We’ll go ahead and assume the battery pack in the Hybrid eliminates that advantage. Oh and all the engines now come with 8-speed autos designed, like all other 8-speed autos, to ensure that you’re always in the wrong gear and the transmission will need to kick down at least 3 gears to deliver meaningful acceleration. You vill salute progress, you vill!

38 Badass Porsche Posters

For the past fifty years, Porsche has been in the habit of producing or commissioning artful posters to commemorate its motorsport success. Most of these posters have been limited in production, offered only to dealers, racing teams, and valued customers. They are both iconic and delightfully timeless, the type of stuff that you find appealing whether you dig Porsches or not. For the most part, however, they aren’t available to the general public. A few have been licensed for reproduction, and Porsche occasionally whips up a batch of the more common ones, but most exist only on dealer walls and in the garages or libraries of collectors.
