Although the Nissan (or Datsun) 240Z was enormously popular in the U.S., that wasn’t quite the case in the U.K. One small shop in Bradford, though, is looking to give the country’s enthusiasts the attentively restomodded 240Z they richly deserve. MZR Roadsports is a small shop in the North of England that was founded by Rahail Tariq after he imported an S30 240Z from the U.S. He wanted to give the car a top-down restoration, but found that there wasn’t really anyone in the U.K. set up for the task. That’s not necessarily because the Brits didn’t like the car, but was instead because America’s ..read more

Amazon Could Have Saved Self-Driving Startup Argo AI, But It Backed Out

Autonomous startup Argo AI almost received a lifeline from Amazon but a potential deal fell apart before it could ever materialize. It is understood that Amazon pondered investing several hundred million dollars into Argo AI last spring with the hope that it could use the company’s technology to automate the electric delivery vans that it is purchasing from Rivian. Furthermore, Ford and Volkswagen who backed Argo AI were apparently interested in a third partner that would help with the immense costs involved in self-driving technologies. The deal was discussed by ex-VW chief executive Herbert ..read more

Consumer Reports just dropped its annual Reliability scores and seven different vehicles have fallen off of its recommendation list due to poor performances. One of those cars is the Ford Mustang Mach E and it’s the only all-electric vehicle out of the bunch. Here’s what knocked it out of the ring. To gather its reliability data, Consumer Reports sends questionnaires to its members. Specifically, it asks about issues with 17 different aspects of the vehicle experienced over the last 12 months. This year, it compiled data from over 300,000 vehicles ranging from the 2000 model year up until 202 ..read more

Recently one man sustained non-life-threatening injuries after a supercar accident in Long Island. Sometime around 10:45 a.m. local time on November 6, his Lamborghini and another collided. It sent his 2021 Aventador into the center median where it burst into flames and ultimately burned to the ground leaving little more than a pile of ash. That man is Bryan Salamone, a resident of Dix Hills, a divorce attorney, and a philanthropist with ties to Smiles Through Cars. That organization intends to bring love and hope to children battling illness through experiences with superheroes and supercars ..read more

Would You Ever Pay Wildly Over MSRP For A Hot New Car?
Carscoops
by Chris Chilton
11h ago
Last month we reported how a Nissan dealer was trying to sell a 2023 Z with a “$60,000 market adjustment.” That’s a $60k markup for a car that both Car & Driver and Motor Trend placed second to its Toyota Supra rival in their comparisons tests because it wasn’t as much fun to drive. The magazines’ subjective assessment suggests the Z can’t possibly be “worth” a $60k mark-up, but as with any commodity, the Z’s real value is what someone is prepared to pay for it. Nissan might fix an official $60k price to a 2023 Z with some juicy options, but that’s not the car’s value. If five guys are fi ..read more

Here’s How Ford F-150 Lightning And Mustang Mach-E Owners Can Unlock Extra Features

A lot of new vehicles have more ability than they arrive to owners with. In many cases, they are locked behind subscriptions but in the case of the Ford F-150 Lightning and the Mustang Mach-E, those abilities are just waiting for a person with the know-how to enable them. One YouTube channel just walked us through the process and it’s simpler than one might think. Right off the top we should mention that we’re not talking about adding horsepower or totally new features. The changes that can be made with this process simply enable features that the vehicle is already capable of. For example, y ..read more

Driving your car in a big city like New York can be a real pain, but it’s nothing compared with trying to park it. Developers know they need to provide parking to persuade potential homeowners to part with big money for the flashiest pads, but parking garages take up valuable real-estate space, and they’re often cramped meaning drivers don’t like using them. So some developers have come up with a high-tech solution, cramming what is effectively an automotive vending machine into some of the city’s most luxurious apartment buildings to provide parking for some of the Big Apple’s wealthiest res ..read more

Ridiculous Markups On Toyota’s GR Corolla Begin With 50% Over MSRP

The 2023 Toyota GR Corolla is a significant car in many ways. Most of all, it’s a properly fast, fun, and functional hot hatch. On top of all of that, its starting MSRP is just $36,995, but if one dealer gets its way, it’ll claw $60,223 out of the hands of a Toyota customer for a car that with the same options, should normally cost you $38,843 or $39,938 with delivery and handling. That’s a 50.8% markup ladies and gents. The GR Corolla blew our minds back in September when we had the chance to race it around Utah Motorsports Campus. Under the hood lurks a three-cylinder engine with 300 hp (22 ..read more

2026 Acura NSX Rendering Looks To The Past For A Sexy Future

This story contains illustrations of a NSX created by Ulises Morales that are neither related to nor endorsed by Honda or Acura. On November 16, 2022, Honda’s Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, put the final touches on the very last Acura NSX Type S. As it stands, that makes it the last NSX ever to leave the factory. Even Honda thinks it’s a little premature to say for sure that that will actually be the last vehicle to ever bear the now legendary model name, though. In October, the Japanese automaker gave its fans a glimmer of hope, saying that there was a chance that the ..read more
