By the time FSD actually works that car will be obsolete. Anyone that pays $15k for this feature is on crack.

Wait a little while longer and the artificially high valuation of Teslas will drop even more.

the hardware for level 4 autonomous driving is well beyond anything tesla has shipped. it currently fills up the entire trunk of an S class and costs about double what the car does.

"Where was it openly admitted that the current hardware won't be capable of FSD? I thought the last I had read was they are working on HW4 which will be an improvement but that HW3 will work as well."


Now I can't find the article. I just read it in the last week or so. Unfortunately I don't recall the details of it, just that they finally said out loud what everyone already knew.

Disagree. They're good looking vehicles. Much better than the majority of hack jobs you see these days.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 N

It will have around 600 hp, which is seriously impressive. I think that would make it the most powerful Asian car -- can't think of a Japanese production car with that much power ever.

There is a generation of a corolla i particularly like. More boxy and sporty looking. One of them I know has a black roof which I think looks dumb

2013 SL I think, whatever the top trim is. 360 cam, bose stereo, leather, heated front and rear seats. the big deal about getting a 2013 is they added dc fast charging and a 6.6kw AC charger. I keep it in my garage at the race track to get around for general paddock stuff or to get over to the condos and then when I go to my house near the race track, we don't need to take 2 cars up, we can take 1 and then I can get in the leaf

I really like my B9.5 RS5, but I find myself thinking a lot about the Taycan Turismo.

I need to figure out what the next move is when I finally go electric.

I looked at that car and wanted to like it, but the hatch is useless imo. It's the same size as the non-turismo panamera. I ordered the cadillac lyriq without ever driving it on value alone. I haven't driven it still but I'm pretty excited for it. I'd love to see lexus make a phev wagon, but i won't hold my breath

Should have ordered the Celestiq... seems like you can afford it

Escaladeiq (Escalade EV, but with completely new design) concept (in near production form) unveiled yesterday. 200 kwh battery and 750 hp. Can tow a cruise ship but also weighs as much probably.

i have no desire for a worse cadillac wagon than the one i've got. the escalade seems cool, but i hate the interior being all screens and i can't get with 130k for that package

Took delivery of this last week (technically the week before, but was at detail shop for a week). 1 of 1500 for the US in 2023, took a while (deposit placed early 2022).



Very happy with it thus far, though I still haven't reached the engine break it point, so there haven't been any runs up to redline as of yet.

Circuit Edition.

As mentioned haven't broken in yet, but a few plus/minus observations:

Pros: Grip for days, great exhaust note across all ranges (it's deeper than you'd expect), so many turbos sounds, very little turbo lag.

Cons: No lumbar support on Driver's seat (seriously?), lack of interior storage cubbies, laughable hatch space, tight rear seat, lack of amenities (basically all things my 2017 Mk7 GTI did better).

there's a youtube channel in australia or new zealand that took the yaris engine up to 524hp before running out of fuel/turbo/intercooler, but kept the engine stock. I'd love to see what a hopped up version could do in something like gridlife or global time attack with really lax rules for modifications

No plans for it. Gonna do the (included) free NASA track day but beyond that might not really track it at all.

Yeah PPF and ceramic at detailer. About 75% of the sheetmetal/bumpers are now covered, hah.

^^plan to sell the C63. Spread the word

As to GTD: Objectively, seems like a cool car. But I find it stupid for a few reasons:

1. Ford had to build something, otherwise they were shut out of GT3/WEC international racing series. So they come up with this?!
2. Leading on the above, why didn't they build a GT successor instead? The car is being built by Multimatic anyway. People would go nuts for a mid-engined 3rd gen GT. Drop in the Voodoo engine and bask in your glory. Instead they came up with a $300k version of a $25k Mustang? (I'm fully aware it shares nothing except it's name and number of doors with a base Ecoboost, but it's just a stupid stupid use of brand naming).
3. Ford bragged about their goal for this car to be sub 7 around the Nurburgring. 800 hp and $300k isn't brag worthy for a time like that. A base 911 GT3 will be sub 7 for half that price (comparing MSRP).
4. Ford's GT line of mid-engine cars can stand in proud company with exotics. A lot of people won't see this Mustang derivative in the same way. Including me, because again, WHY did they chose this path?

Dumb.

^^ they should have come up with a 2023 version of the Cobra R for $75k and called it a day. It would have been popular and allowed plenty of consumers to compete with the Hellcat.
