Ford Didn't Even Bother To Check if the Coyote V-8 Would Fit in the 2021 Bronco

Ford Didn’t Even Bother To Check if the Coyote V-8 Would Fit in the 2021 Bronco

Imagine the horror if it can’t happen and all aftermarket swap ideas have to be scrapped too!

When the Bronco was unveiled, a lot of us were disappointed by the absence of a V-8 mill. But, we still had hopes that it could become a reality someday. However, Ford made it clear that a V-8 will not be offered here. Although we had our deliberations, this confirmation from Ford served as the final nail in the coffin.

It has now come to light that Ford was sure about not offering one right from the start. In fact, it even built the Bronco without bothering to check if a V-8 engine could be plonked in or not! Speaking with Ford Authority, Bronco’s Chief Engineer, Eric Loefller said that they hadn’t even given it a shot during its development days.

It's Harder Than You Realize To Get Cool, Real-Life Cars Into Racing Games

It’s Harder Than You Realize To Get Cool, Real-Life Cars Into Racing Games

You’d have to shake A LOT of hands if you were to thank each person that’s behind your favorite car in your favorite game

Nowadays, thanks to the awesome possibilities that are within reach for most next-gen racing titles, our list of demands is continuously expanding and, almost always, a large selection of cars is at the top of the list with the prerequisite that the cars have to look good and sound amazing. But the job of getting a car, any car, into a modern video game isn’t easy because, well, stuff like 3D-scanning and an ultra-realistic physics engine are both complicated to do and expensive.

You Might Want to Think Twice About Putting Big Wheels On Your EV

You Might Want to Think Twice About Putting Big Wheels On Your EV

More specifically, range is going to take a hit

Since electric powertrains have started crawling inside our cars, manufacturers had to find ways to make said powertrains as efficient as possible. Aside from battery chemistry, size, and other such factors, an EV’s ability to travel more miles on a full charge is also an affair of aerodynamics and rolling resistance.

In the video below, Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained shows why big wheels impact an electric car’s driving range.

Porsche 960 Turismo: The Car That Made the Porsche Taycan Possible

Porsche 960 Turismo: The Car That Made the Porsche Taycan Possible

This is what happens when you mix the 918 Spyder with the Panamera and the 911

The Porsche Taycan is one of the coolest looking four-door coupes out there. It’s sleek, aggressive, and it looks as if Porsche actually wanted to create a four-door supercar. Well, the company’s latest release of previously unseen concept cars confirms that what became the Taycan was first conceived as a four-door supercar. And no, I’m not talking about the Mission E concept. The project is much older than that. Meet the 960 Turismo, the true predecessor of the Taycan.

We're Pretty Sure This Dumb Dodge Charger Driver is a Former Ford Mustang Driver

We’re Pretty Sure This Dumb Dodge Charger Driver is a Former Ford Mustang Driver

Point of emphasis: don’t do burnouts if you don’t know how to pull them off

Stupid drivers know no bounds, and they certainly don’t favor one muscle car over another. Take this nincompoop, for example. Driving a camouflaged Dodge Charger SRT 392 at a car gathering in Houston, the driver decides to demonstrate his burnout skills in front of a gathered crowd.

That kind of stunt normally ends in one of two ways. He either pulls off the burnout to the delight of the adoring crowd or something goes horribly wrong and he’s left with more than pee down his trousers. Unfortunately, it’s the latter. Just as he attempts his burnout, the driver loses control of the Charger SRT 392 and crashes into a gathered crowd, taking a few bystanders along the way. Fortunately, no one got seriously hurt, and to the delight of Ford, it wasn’t a Mustang that ended up being on the short end of this YouTube lowlight.

This Audi RS6 GTO Is the Car We All Deserve But Can’t Have

That’s what happens when trainees are allowed to run wild in a design studio

There’s something innate at Volkswagen Group about allowing trainees to develop their own ideas in terms of what a car should look like.

Just look at what Volkswagen has been doing in the past years at W?rthersee, where a wacky Golf is unveiled with clockwork precision every year, and it’s entirely imagined and designed by the brand’s apprentices. And Audi just copied the recipe.

Porsche Should Build a High-Performance Van Already

Porsche Should Build a High-Performance Van Already

The Vision Renndienst is proof that Porsche can build a cool looking, fast van

Porsche recently unveiled several concept cars that it has kept out of sight over the last 15 years. Among them, there’s the Vision Renndienst, an all-electric van that pays tribute to the old vans that Porsche used as support vehicles for its racing program back in the 1950s and 1960s. They were mainly first-generation Volkswagen Microbus vans, usually painted red and labeled "renndienst," which is German for "racing service." The van concept looks surprisingly hot, and given that Porsche already built something similar in the past, maybe it’s time Stuttgart rolls out a production van. Of the high-performance variety, of course.

Porsche Almost Revived the Iconic 904 with a V-2 Diesel Engine

The Porsche 904 Living Legend concept is a cool 904 tribute with a VW hybrid drivetrain

Porsche recently unveiled several design studies and concept cars it has created over the past 15 years, and some of them, including the 904 Living Legend, are downright impressive. Created in 2013, the 904 Living Legend is a tribute to the iconic 904 sports car of the 1960s. Design-wise, the 904 Living Legend is a combination between the modern Cayman and the classic 904, but the drivetrain underneath that sleek body is surprising, to say the least.

The Porsche Vision 920 Is the Street-Legal Le Mans Racer That Could Have Been

The Porsche Vision 920 Is the Street-Legal Le Mans Racer That Could Have Been

The Vision 920 is the road-legal 919 Hybrid that Porsche should build ASAP

Porsche Should Be Ashamed Of Not Producing These Unseen Concept Cars

Porsche Should Be Ashamed Of Not Producing These Unseen Concept Cars

Porsche actually built a road-legal 919 Hybrid, but it kept it hidden until 2020

Be it a futuristic design, a pre-production model, or a technological showcase, the concept car is now a major part of the automotive world. Tens of concept vehicles are being released every year and many of them are downright spectacular. But the concept cars we see are just a fraction of the concept vehicles that are being designed or built behind closed doors. If you need proof, Porsche just published "Porsche Unseen," a book that showcases design studies from 2005 to 2019. Three of them have been released online as well, and they’re as spectacular as they get.

Here's Why the Ferrari F50 Is Better Than the F40

Here’s Why the Ferrari F50 Is Better Than the F40

This video proves that the Ferrari F50 doesn’t get the attention it deserves

The F50 is one of the greatest Ferraris ever built. Loved by purists for its naturally aspirated V-12 engine and F1-inspired technology, the F50 is already a full-fledged classic, despite being only 25 years old as of 2020. But the F50 has also been overshadowed by the F40, its spiritual predecessor. Tiff Needell thinks that is unfair and took a red F50 for a spin on the Scottish highlands to prove his point.

Is This REALLY The Fastest Nissan 350Z On The Planet?

Is This REALLY The Fastest Nissan 350Z On The Planet?

Hard to tell, but it’s definitely one of the best-sounding 350Zs out there

We’ve seen our fair share of tuned Nissan 350Z over the sports car’s long career. Some are good examples of what a tweaked Z should be while other are festivals of tasteless work. Mountainpass Performance’s 350Z falls in the first category. Even more, it’s built with racing in mind (not street racing, though) and it even packs an electric motor.

Restoring a Lamborghini Countach Die-Cast Is Hard Work, But The Result Will Leave You Drooling

Just like the real Countach, scale models are intriguing to watch – when done right, of course

We’re so used to buying a new thing to replace a broken one that we’ve forgot all about the art of repairing something. Luckily, not all videos on YouTube are about Mustangs hitting the crowd while leaving car meets.

Good Restore, for example, has developed quite a following by doing exactly what the name says: restoring to perfection old, rusty die-cast models. Today’s patient is a beaten-up Lamborghini Countach and its transformation is simply mesmerizing.

Ferrari Hypercar Mule Spotted Testing

Ferrari Hypercar Mule Spotted Testing

Is Ferrari working on an electrified successor to the LaFerrari?

Ferrari’s most recent supercar, the LaFerrari, was introduced in 2013. The coupe remained in production until 2016, when Ferrari launched the Aperta, which was built until 2018. It’s been two years since the LaFerrari was discontinued and the Maranello-based company is now testing a supercar that looks awfully familiar.

Spotted by our paparazzi on public roads, this prototype is clearly based on the LaFerrari, yet it sports some unique features as well. Is Ferrari building a special-edition LaFerrari? Is this an upcoming successor to the LaFerrari?

Can the Chinese-Built Xpeng P7 Hold Its Own on American Soil?

The Xpeng P7 comes to the U.S. to take on the Tesla Model 3. Here’s what it can do

Spotting an electric car on a public road used to be a rare event a few years ago. As more and more automakers join the niche, this is no longer the case, because EVs are now more common and more affordable. And several carmakers are preparing their assault on the electric car market.

China’s Xpeng is one of them. Established only six years ago, Xpeng unveiled its second production model, the P7, in 2020 and it wants to sell it in the United States. The P7 was displayed at the New York Stock Exchange earlier this year and it was driven for the first time on U.S. soil.
