U.S Pricing For 2012 Audi TT-RS Announced

By Carl Malek

Audi has finally revealed the official U.S pricing for the 2012 Audi TT-RS. Customers intent on adding one to their garage should plan on paying the $56,850 USD admission fee (destination charges not included) for the privilege of owning one of these vehicles. While these numbers do represent a $10,000 USD price increase over the TT-S, this pricing strategy helps the new Audi achieve a considerable price advantage over the $62,100 Porsche Cayman S, as well as a slight edge over the Porsche Boxster S droptop and its own $58,600 price tag.

Review: 2011 GMC Sierra Denali 2500 4WD

By Chris Haak

Lots of people drive heavy duty pickups.  Many contractors, businesses, and folks who have to do a lot of towing flock to these brutes because they are among the most capable vehicles on the planet as far as towing and hauling while still moving a family of five – at least among vehicles that don’t require a CDL to operate on public roads.

2012 Range Rover Sport, LR4 Updates Revealed

By Carl Malek

Land Rover has formally unveiled the updates and new features the company has planned for the 2012 Land Rover LR4 and the 2012 Range Rover Sport models.

Engine options will not change for the 2012 model year, but a key addition to both models for 2012 is the use of a brand new ZF eight speed gearbox, which will be paired to the 3.0 liter V6 turbo-diesel engine. The engine itself has seen a modest horsepower boost going up from 245 horsepower to a more robust 252 horsepower. As a bonus, the company claims that the 3.0 liter V6 will see decreased emissions and increased fuel economy numbers thanks to the transmission’s extra gears and the use of a brand new low flow fuel injection system. Unfortunately, the new gearbox will not find its way to the V8 versions of the Range Rover Sport and LR4 which will retain the familiar six speed automatic gearbox for 2012.

Hey, There’s a Cool Car: 2005/2006 Pontiac GTO

By Charles Krome

How can a 400-hp rear-wheel-drive coupe that runs from 0-60 in under 5 seconds be anything less than cool? Yet, as we all know, the car here was an utter failure for Pontiac/GM, and for a lot of different reasons. It all starts with the car’s name, obviously—if it had been anything other than “GTO,” things might have turned out a lot differently.

Saab’s Uncertain Turnaround Continues at a Stagger

Since the last piece I wrote about Saab, , there have been subsequent machinations in Trollhättan, as the Swedish auto manufacturer tries desperately to live another day in order to facilitate its long-term survival. 

Just to recap regarding the emergence of Saab’s new Chinese partner, and possible saviour, Pang Da: 

After a deal with Chinese SUV-maker Hawtie fell apart, Saab immediately fell into the arms of Pang da, a more well-known Chinese company that is a vehicle distributor in-country. Pang Da currently imports and distributes Toyota, Subaru and Honda brands in China. 

The initial agreement had a commitment by Pang Da to buy Saab vehicles in two tranches. An initial purchase worth 30 million euros has already been agreed to and a subsequent tranch worth 15 million euros is scheduled right behind that, Victor Muller, CEO of Spyker, told journalists in Sweden in May. Muller then added that the first tranch was already on a train, heading for China.
