Toyota FT-86 Concept: It’s Brand New!

Toyota FT-86 Concept

We all know that sports car fans are constantly looking for the next bright and shiny sports car that they can bow down to.  Well – the Toyota FT-86 Concept is going to be it, if it makes it through the testing mind you.  This beautiful car is actually looking pretty chic in this picture and while it might just be a concept car right now, Toyota is seriously considering putting the Toyota FT-86 Concept together.

The engine – well, it is certainly something to be proud of.  It is going to be a 2.0-liter engine with about 250HP to it.  While that might not seem all that fast or that big, the smaller the engine, the better the quality is the rule that I go by.

If you happen to be looking for a new sports car – the Toyota FT-86 Concept is going to be awesome!

Check Out The Seat IBZ Concept!

Seat IBZ Concept

When you think about concept cars – they usually look incredible, feel great and then when they come out … they look like crap and no one really wants to buy them.  That is not the case with the Seat IBZ Concept.  This car is absolutely perfect in every way and it actually just showed itself at the Frankfurt Motor Show! 

The Seat IBZ Concept actually adds a bit of Alfa-worthy beauty to it and while to some people, the clean and crisp lines do not make a difference … to me, they do.  I want my car to be clean and crisp – fresh and awesome and that is exactly what the Seat IBZ Concept.

This car definitely does not look like the station wagons that I remember way back in the day – that’s for sure!

The Ill-Fated Pontiac G8 ST …

Pontiac G8 ST I have always regarded the Pontiac brand as one that I can live with and respect – personally, I own a Pontiac Vibe and that thing has gotten me all over this country and back and I absolutely love it.  However, when I saw this picture … the Pontiac G8 ST is the name of it, I was not exactly sure how to deal with it.  It is almost like an updated version of that car with the pick-up-truck back … El Camino?

While the Pontiac G8 ST seems to be all business in the front and a party in the back, to be honest, I am glad that this particular model is not going to be sold in the US.  You will never guess where this particular car is going to be sold … Australia actually!

While AU can keep the Pontiac G8 ST – I think that the down under is better equipped to handle a car of this particular stature … honestly.

The Reworked Golf R32: Inexpensive, Cool and Chic!

20509230071mTo me – the VW brand is a brand that I know only love, but it is a brand that I can truly trust with my life.  These cars are not just built because they are fun and chic, they are built to last and honestly … they last a very, very long time.  The cool thing about Volkswagen, is the fact that they not only design cars that are chic and affordable, but they rework their cars over and over again until they are perfect … like the Golf R32!

This particular car I think has been worked over a whole lot and finally – finally, it is perfect and the 2010 Golf R32 is going to be one of those ‘must have’ cars of the season.  Whether you are looking for a car that is fun and flirty or you want a dependable car that is going to last you quite a while, the Golf R32 is going to be the car for you.

Personally, I think that I am going to trade in my bug for one of these cars – if only for more room though!  So check out the Golf R32 – it has been reworked and is beautiful now!

2010 Saab 9-5

When it comes to 2010 Saab 9-5, I have to say that I am very excited about this car.  Now, I have always been a Saab fan in the first place but when my eyes hooked onto this beauty, I was a goner.  Not only is this car going to be one of the prettiest cars on the market, but I can promise that the 2010 Saab 9-5 is going to have all sorts of different and unique features – including its pronounced grille and fascia as well as multi-hued side mirrors and full-length LED brake lighting.

Inside, there is a cockpit style dash layout and the design has been taken from vintage all the way back to modern – and that is the way that it should stay!  There is very mellow green-tinted lighting and overall – I think that 2010 Saab 9-5 is going to rock!

Whether in the pictures or in the flesh – the 2010 Saab 9-5 is absolutely incredible overall!

European-Spec Ford Fiesta: One Incredible Car!

Ford FiestaIf there is one thing that I know about cars … it is going to be that everything in the world is going to change in 2011 … actually next spring to be honest when the Ford Fiesta comes out.  This particular car is by far Ford’s best and I think that they are going to change me for good when they finally come out with this cool, young and hip looking car.

That is what the cars these days are all about.  Back in the day, the cars were all about the price, how it looked – if it could belong to an executive and the color.  Nowadays, it is all about how the body looks, how cute it is and how brilliant and bright the color is.  Along with just how packed the technology inside of it is.

That is what the cool thing about the Ford Fiesta.  This particular car is packed with technology and it is definitely going to be one hell of a car once it hits the market next year in the spring time!

2010 Mitsubishi i MiEV: What Is It?

0811_27_z2010_mitsubishi_i_mievfront_three_quarter_viewDo you think that America is finally ready for the very first electric city car?  Well, no matter if you think that we are or not, Mitsubishi thinks that we are and that is one of the main reasons why they have come up with the Mitsubishi I MiEV car!  This incredible car actually premiered earlier this year at the New York auto show and while it might be a Japanese-made car, it is actually completely electric and there is no gas needed for this car.

Are you curious as to how it works?  Well, it actually runs on lithium-ion batteries, which in total weighs about 450 pounds and they are attached beneath the rear seats.  You charge this car in the trunk area and to be honest, this car is going to be one hot car as soon as the concept is totally improved and all of the tweaks are worked out.

The Mitsubishi I MiEV is near silent and while it might not be a sports car, I have to say that the fact it can get up to 35 miles per hour, that is incredible!

Six-Zone Combustion Model for Direct-Injection Diesel Engines

Six Zone Combustion Model DieselAt Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France, researchers are building a new multizone combustion model for direct-injection (DI) diesel engines. The model recognizes six zones and provides local information such as the various zone’s temperature and the mean equivalence ratio. The engineers use different methods to find new in-cylinder combustion approaches to decrease emissions.

The six zones are the following:

  • “Liquid” zone
  • Air fuel mixture between the utmost liquid diffusion L and the lift-off length H.
  • The premixed combustion zone.
  • Diffusion combustion zone.
  • Diffusion flame surrounding zones.
  • Surrounding gas (air and EGR).

The model was analyzed on two-operating points at lesser load conditions. With the analysis, they found out that the new six-zone combustion model provides some new in-cylinder information in contrast to existing OD combustion models. It can also locate main trends when varying engine speed and load, exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) rate, or boost pressure and can also be utilized to translate experimental emission trends.
