This will be the preferred vehicle for all the truck Bro's and it will sell well.

Calling it now: You will see it with light bars everywhere and wrapped in all sorts of colors.

It just squats and rebounds and doesnít feel unstable at all. Those shocks have some voodoo magic and it performs incredibly well. On the flat desert, it feels pretty confident flinging the back end out to get it sideways. Having not really been a truck guy, this thing is just darn fun. Itís pretty comfy and quiet for daily driving too.

Only mods Iíll probably do is a pedal commander (not tune).

Two Ford F-150 based trucks in a row for you. You are a truck guy.

Touchť, sir.

That said, the first truck was almost 100% work use although I did use it often for Home Depot runs, moving, loading it up with beach stuff, etc.

This truck will still be mostly work use but Iím definitely playing with it too. When the bmw sells, I might get a leaf or Prius for the dayís I donít need the truck for work which is often enough

That's where I'm at due to lack of performance manual awd models on the market. I wait to add another to the fleet.

It's tough man, there really are not many new cars that excite me until you get well into $150k+ cars. I did drive my buddies 2015 Carrera 4S with PDK and sport exhaust. I definitely like it and would consider that as a next fun car. However, i'm thinking i'll likely either find a clean E46 M3 in manual or finally build a 70's 2002 with some sort of E30 era swap. There is just something about new cars that has that disconnected feeling in favor of more power. I'd rather have a slower car with more involvement than fast and over electronic.

If I had money overflowing my piggy bank, I would keep the M2 and make it a full track car though.

I've scoured looking for a 2007 RS4. I cannot find a low mileage one or I'd buy it and call it a day. It's heavy but the motor is beautiful. The V8 wales and 8k rpm redline. 60/40 R/F split on the Quattro. But f a bunch of 80k, 90k, 110k miles versions. I loathe sedans but I'd take one if I could find one. I'm just going to punt like a NFL SB winning kicker for now. Wait on the new STi/BRZ/new Z, etc and see how it all plays out. Ford supposed to be doing a Mach one with hints of a 5.0 replacing the GT350. One would hope that motor would be a flat plane. I'd buy a GT350 but the reliability of the Voodoo scares me too much. Still watching depreciation on the C7 Z06 and the ZL1. No AWD, then I want 500+ HP if it's going to be another 2-3 season performance widget. The new STi in coupe form would definitely get the d hard.

I feel like we're at the cusp of another performance car renaissance. It feels like the wait will be worth it.

.Is Teslaís Model Y Crossover the Worldís Best Car?

I look forward to a day when car critics can again suck their thumbs and opine about emotionally chilly styling and split hairs about human factors. Meanwhile, we have this car, this one program, beating the competition on core technology like a drum. From behind the wheel, everything else in this categoryóMercedes-Benz GLC 300, Range Rover Evoque, Jaguar F-Pace, Porsche Macanófeels like a sluggish, sloppy antique, a squawking modem trying to connect to the cloud.

From now until about 2030, and irrespective of what the U.S. federal government decrees, global car makers will be shrinking, hybridizing and digitizing their gas-powered engines until they vanish altogether. The endgame of petroleum will be a decade of dizzy, overtaxed turbo four-cylinders, cutting off and on at stop lights, shuddering like washing machines.


Good review of the Model Y

I have done no due diligence on Nikola but my first instinct is to bet against them for the dumb choice in names.

And this is a prime example of how well manipulated and lacking fundamentals the stock market is.

It's disappointing that they are having so many build quality issues on the Model Y. A few flaws is one thing, but loose interior trim, paint issues, etc are pretty bad.
