Results are in for the World’s Fastest Full Hybrid!

The fastest accelerating full hybrid on the planet has arrived! In a teaser released last week, the 2012 Infiniti M Hybrid races against the 2012 Porsche Panamera S Hybrid to prove which can proudly claim the title, “World’s Fastest Full Hybrid.”

The results of ‘The Duel’ are now in, which you can see for yourself:

Inspiration for the video originated when the Infiniti M Hybrid made it into the Guinness World Records® as the world’s fastest accelerating full-hybrid car last fall, when the 360-horsepower gas/electric luxury performance sedan covered the standing quarter mile in 13.9031 seconds!

  

2013 Porsche Boxster Debuts

Alongside the 911, it was easy to forget that the Porsche Boxster is also due for a refresh. Porsche has not forgotten about its enty-level sports car, though, and has delivered a brand new Boxster that is wider, lighter, and more powerful.

The 2013 Boxster can be distinguished at a glance by its newly refined exterior and interior. The exterior sports some flamboyant side scoops, new lights similar in shape to the 918 supercar concept, and an overall tightening of its appearance. The interior sports q center console inspired by the Panamera and better materials. Also, the car is slightly widened to increase interior volume. This redesign bodes especially well for the new Cayman as well since the Cayman is basically a Boxster with a roof.

On the mechanical side, the non-S Boxster get a horsepower bump to 265hp and the S models get an increase to 315hp. Both models recieve either a 6 speed manual transmission or a 7 speed PDK option. Weight has also been dropped by 77lbs.

Lighter, leaner, and meaner, the new Porsche Boxster sets its sights on driving out from under the 911’s shadow.

  

20 Cars to Look for in 2012

With the New Year brings new sheet metal and Bullz-Eye has identified 20 Cars to Look for in 2012!

Dodge Dart
Following the daft Dodge Caliber, Dodge is looking to redeem itself in the small car segment with the Dart. The Dart also marks the first fruit of Chrysler’s merger with Fiat, because underneath the Dodge skin lies Italian bones. And not just any bones either, but the platform of the Alfa Romeo Guilietta. The Dart will be powered by a host of new engines and transmission choices, also supplied by Fiat. No hatchback version will be offered, unfortunately, but the Dart is shaping up to be a serious contender in the small car marketplace.

Check out the rest of the 20!

  

ACB: Rauh Welt

RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF : Shinji’s RWB 964 from Luke Huxham on Vimeo.

Last time, ACB featured the new 911, so it is only natural to bring you a video featuring an old one. For those unfamiliar with Rauh Welt, they are a Japanese tuning company that turns ordinary 911s into something that crawled out Tim Burton’s nightmares. Bear in mind, these cars aren’t trailer queens either. Many see daily driving duty and heavy track use. Enjoy.

ACB: New 911 Ad

Yes this ad commits every cliche in the car advertisement handbook, but still, it features the new 911 up close and personal. If you can ignore the dramatic smoke, ariel shots, terrible new age music, and nary a whisper of why you should like the new 911, the ad is enjoyable. but seriously ad men, step up your game. Nothing about bad rock show special effects makes me want to buy a car.
