Easy now. Assuming everybody holds up their promises, the 7-Series will drop up to around 280 lbs, whereas the CT6 will have a starting weight below the current 5-Series, so it’ll still have a couple hundred pound advantage. I’ve driven a current gen, rwd, 2.0T auto 3-Series, and a rwd, 2.0T auto ATS sedan, and while… » 4/20/15 3:41pm 4/20/15 3:41pm

They have a similar event out in Vegas, and I tracked an SLS AMG out there. That was my first track experience, and other than a single autocross in a 207 hp commuter car, and a very breif street drive in a GT-R, I hadn’t done anything like that. Long story short: It was fine, and I had a blast. The instructors will… » 4/13/15 8:51am 4/13/15 8:51am

I sort of forgot about this one. Last summer, I was looking for a job (and got one shortly after this) so I was going around and looking at cars, so I'd have my choices narrowed down once the real paychecks were coming in. I went to a local Chevy dealership, started looking at a white Camaro SS with the 1LE package… » 4/09/15 2:19pm 4/09/15 2:19pm

Oh man, that burns me up. A couple of years ago, there was a Camaro that either got the exact same treatment, or maybe had a scissor jack holding one corner up. I’ve got wheel locks on my current set, and live on a quiet street, but if a theif ever tries this on me, they better pray i don’t catch them. » 4/09/15 1:54pm 4/09/15 1:54pm

I agree with you, and I’m a massive Cadillac fanboy. I think it really comes down to detailing and material choice. On the C-Class, there’s nice detailing and trim around the little inset pieces like the seat heater controls and door handle, whereas on the Cadillac they’re just set in, and the lack of detail makes it… » 4/01/15 8:36am 4/01/15 8:36am

think of the GT2/GT3 as their own 911 sub-series. In racing, you have GT classes, with GT1 being the most radical, GT2 being less radical, the GT3 being less radical than the 2, and so on and so forth. The GT2 is a GT3 with more power (via turbos) and less weight, a less-compromised suspension, etc.

I think the Koreans are a problem for them at the moment, perhaps, but are more of a short-term product. Cadillac has been churning out decent products for less than the Germans for about a decade now, and it hasn't worked for them. now, their plan is to put out products that can stand directly against the Germans,… » 3/31/15 2:03pm 3/31/15 2:03pm
