Idaho is home to the rudest drivers in America

Porsche offers detuned Boxster and Cayman 211 in Europe

Looking at a new Porsche Boxster ? First of all, we commend you on your choice, because in its latest iteration, the Boxster has sped out from under the shadow of the 911 and into its own. But now to choose: do you get the base model with 265 horsepower, the Boxster S with 315 hp, or the top-of-the-line Boxster GTS with 330 hp? It's a daunting question, considering the $10k+ price gap between each model that you could put into the gas-and-rubber jar.

Plugged in: Electric vehicles coming to Canada in 2015

The all-electric version of Kia's urban compact box arrives in October, and promises 160 kilometres of range, and only slightly less in winter - and this may be a conservative figure, as a brief test drive last March in temperatures just above freezing determined that it was capable of an estimated 193 km. It loses little cargo space to the gas Soul, but will be priced about $8,000 more.

Porsche 211PS Powered Boxster Leaked

Porsche for layman may not be considerable, but still the leaked link from a Porsche dealer in Belgium had made us to believe so!!! Possibly to be powered by the standard 2.7-liter flat-six engine, and not the four-cylinder unit yet, Porsche Belgium reported it to be delivering 211 PS which is still awaited the official confirmation from the German automaker. However, there are chances that leaked specifications would be of the locally produced Boxster version which could have been ousted to take advantage of taxation due to local production.

LeMons Northern California Inspections: Peugeot 404 vs Renault 10 vs Corvair, 239 Other Teams.

We're back at Northern California's Thunderhill Raceway, where the temperatures hit the three-digit mark, the penalty laps were handed out in generous quantities to many a BMW and Honda, and the largest number of teams to be accepted into a LeMons race showed up: 242 entries ! With so many cars, we don't have space to cover the boring fast teams, so let's check out a few of the better Class B and Class C entries. If you like vintage GM machinery, why get yet another second-gen F-body when you can get a '77 Pontiac LeMans for less money and have more fun racing it? Class C is going to be the struggle to watch this weekend.
