I love my apple car play. Its the reason I chose my head unit. You can say what you will about apple but the radio also has android auto and makes everything easier and safer.

My next vehicle/head unit WILL be an apple carplay device. Im all in on apple fur a reason and that reason is because its a solid, eligant, and robust system. I love the way it hands off to each device seamlessly.

I got a lightwieght Pioneer with USB / Bluetooth / Aux + other junk for around $50 at walmart but there are cheaper JVC and lower brands that come with speakers too. I find USB to be the best for either a tiny micro sd adapter or a all out smartphone plugged into it.

[]Basir Khan 2 points

Well now that more and more handsets are removing the headphone jack, Bluetooth is becoming the new normal.

For a mere $2,000 a month, you can rent a Porsche on-demand from your smartphone and drive it like you stole it. Dubbed the Porsche Passport

Uh, Atlanta is 160 miles away, so yea! I might have tried this for 1 month, before buying the Cayman. Now that I have one, I would only consider if the base price could get me into a 911.

Just weeks after Bugatti set the record from 0-400 kph (that's 249 mph) and back down to naught in the Chiron, Koenigsegg beat it with ease. The Chiron took 42 seconds but the Agera RS only took 36 seconds. That is some serious speed and even more serious stopping power.

Gotta give it up to the little guys, underdogs. I like the fact this is not even their latest model.

VERY impressive! Looks a bit squirrely, I imagine the Chiron would be more planted/stable at speed.. but I'd rather have the Agera RS.

Does this mean that turbos are here to stay? I guess my next Porsche will need to be turbo'ed...Or, that chassis must be worth its weight in gold.

Considering they're all turbocharged now, I'd say yes.

The Italian automaker has revealed its replacement for the California T. Like the outgoing model, the Portofino is a hardtop convertible with the same twin-turbo V8 but packs 592 hp—40 more than its predecessor. How do you think it looks?

[]Basir Khan 1 point

It's definitely got plenty of stopping power!

[]Ryan Brenner 1 point

I know brakes are important, but those brakes seem like they are over powered for for the size of those tires. I imagine a lighter brake set could do just as much work.

[]Basir Khan 1 point

I imagine BMW will offer a lighter and longer lasting brake kit for a premium.

Drove down to Pebble Beach yesterday to check out some of the exquisite cars seen only this time of year. On the way there, I spotted a trio of Ferrari F50s, countless Porsche 918 Spyders and the only Koenigsegg Regera in North America. Sadly, I wasn't able to take any photos of those as I was driving but here are some photos I did manage to nab of the cars that were on display:

The 707 hp Jeep Cherokee Trackhawk has been priced at $85,900. The supercharged SUV will do 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 180 mph. Would you buy one?

Not at that price. I'd rather have a luxury brand, even if it was slower.

[]Basir Khan 1 point

Yeah it's a bit steep. The SRT Hellcat is also $20k cheaper.

Don't forget the dealer mark up....they will be over 100k! BTW, SRT 392's sticker 65-70 in the Houston area....no idea what they are asking for the Hellcat version.

[]Ernie Szots 1 point

No, sir.

Why not? Genuinely curious.

[]Ernie Szots 2 points

Nothing against this vehicle specifically, I'm just not a fan of trucks and SUV's at all. Having said that, if I were to buy one, I don't think I'd consider Jeep based on quality.

[]Basir Khan 1 point

Totally agree. For that much money, you could buy a much more capable Land Cruiser.

[]Ernie Szots 2 points

My thought exactly!

[]Chad Ploski 1 point

Nope, not for that price! Yes its badass and if Money was no object...sure, but you could get some really nice rides for those bones. Even the 392 SRTs are nutty priced at 65-70k.

I'd buy the Demon first... then again... 707hp AND you look like a responsible adult... you could take those ricer kids at the meet to school and beat them in the 1/4 mile.

Lots of new cars were unveiled this week. Here's a quick recap of what you might have missed.Audi A8

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Brandon Marquis 1 point

I hope Hyundai replaces Honda in the performance segment - hearts and minds, that is. What Honda is doing now is not cutting it. Love it or hate it, at least this is another performance car we can discuss and drive. More hatches the merrier. The new Accord is pretty ugly. Or maybe they wanted the Civic R to look better by comparison (its not helping).

[]Brandon Dubose 2 points

I like how for over a decade all anyone has done (in the us) is talk crap on hyundai but as soon as they release the N series they expect Hyundai to look the other way and give them this amazing car. lol

[]Basir Khan 2 points

For a while, I was one of these people. Hyundai/Kia have really upped their game in terms of looks, quality and reliability in the last decade. I've sat in some of the newer models and came out genuinely impressed. At this point, anyone who disregards them is doing so out of spite.

[]Ernie Szots 1 point

Or, doing so for reasons like this:

http://abc7.com/automotive/hyundai-kia-recall-14m-vehicles;-engines-can-fail/1846843/

I don't think it's all about spite. For me, they still don't pass the kick-the-tires test. They don't feel as quality as Toyota and Honda in just about any capacity. That N just looks like a complete Golf rip-off.

[]Basir Khan 1 point

Recalls are a dime a dozen. Just today, Honda issued a recall on the Accord – http://globalnews.ca/news/3597719/honda-recall-accord-vehicle-batteries-catch-fire/

[]Ernie Szots 1 point

I agree; I don't know of a car that hasn't had a recall, but I think a recall on the engines failing is a little different than a recall on bad battery sensors.

Aside from that, for me, there's a big difference in the feeling/driving of a Sonata vs Accord. IMHO, they're going in the right direction, but still have a way to go.

[]Brandon Dubose 2 points

I remember how crappy stuff was before and nobody can deny that. When they came out with the tiburon though, it was a turn in the right direction. Its only been uphill since which is an *amazing* feat compared to how many issues other brands have had over the past decade too. Thats one of the big reasons I love showing up with a tib to track events. It always starts with laughing and ends with people having a different opinion.

Ps, im so excited to see more about that Aston. I see some very interesting things going on with it.

Just the overall front fascia—the headlights, grille and turn signals. It's a step backward from what they had, I think.

Had the pleasure of discovering a rusty nail in the front driver's side tire yesterday. It's been leaking slowly which would explain why the TPMS warning light only turned on twice in the last 2 weeks. Luckily, Sears Auto was open today of all days and were able to plug and patch it up!

[]Brandon Marquis 1 point

We need a street cleaner service which uses a high powered magnet to pick up crap like this. This may be a minor annoyance for street use, but for someone who also takes their car to the track or autocross, you can't use a tire that is plugged, so the entire tire must be replaced before an event. This happened to me last year.

[]Jesse LeFevers 2 points

Oh, I just repaired a nail too.

Absolutely, I just wish all those lucky enough to actually own one wouldn't keep it in their garage. I worked for North America Toyota headquarters and they had 3 LFA's there. Not only do they look amazing but sound even better. Definitely worth the price!

I've never seen one in person, but if it really sounds like it does in GT6, then yes!

Yes, I agree. You can hear one on the Internets too, not to mention Forza. One of the best sounding cars I've ever heard.

Its for sure going to be a future collectible. It will skyrocket in price in a few years.

Love the sound of that F1 inspired exhaust and I appreciate it's more conservative looks, but in that price range, wouldn't you want an exotic that, well, looked a little more exotic?

[]Matt Heeley 2 points

I think in the context of their build date, they look fantastic. There's not much on the road from that time period that looks a bunch better. And the styling is pretty conservative without wings and scoops just for the sake of.. but the sound! Better than anything else from that generation of supercar.

My best two are an old Bulova my dad gave me and a mid-level Movado. You could spend multiple lifetime fortunes on cars and watches lol.
