With the recent advent of the Ford Crown Victoria becoming out of production on assembly lines, there have been many questions to what will replace it as the Police Interceptor in the years to come. Some have speculated as to whether Ford will still remain the preferred choice for law enforcement agencies across the country. It was just a matter of time before Ford announces their two new models of Police Interceptors; using the Taurus and Explorer models, respectively, as the new platforms for the next generation squad cars. Although not as robust as the old Crown Victoria, the new Taurus boasts a new turbocharged, direct injection 3.5 liter V6 engine in place of the older 4.6 liter V8. This will provide better fuel economy for the new squad cars on top of newer technology that will take the place of the aging chasses that has been in service for the last few decades.
Whenever your out on the open road, there are risks being taken and obstacles that seem to pop out of nowhere and somehow you narrowly miss. But sometimes, there are just people out there to try and get the better of you (and your wallet). This guy daily commutes with a camera on board his car. Although the camera almost always just shows him going to work or grabbing some daily essentials from the local groceries store, he gets a lucky break when someone tries to pull a fast one over him. This was caught as he was driving on the 401 fwy in the Toronto area. The black Acura in the video has a standard (manual) transmission and was apparently rolling back towards the car of the camera owner. There has been some controversy about what they spoke about and what the speech bubbles are saying, but there is no uncertainty that the footage caught helped the owner avoid being blamed for the accident and paying for the incident altogether.(....)
Although Apple and its line of hi-tech gadgets and computers has become synonymous in the new era of smart phones and tablets, a Chinese company located in Shenzhen called Proview Technology has filed (and won) a suit against the multi-billion dollar company. Proview, back in the year 2000, had already patented the name iPad for their own use long before the iPad was even conceived as an idea. When Apple released the iPad, Proview came out and accused them of copyright infringement on the name. On February 13th, the courts have filed in favor of Chinese company Proview and have ordered all iPads within China to be seized. Some store owners pulled stock off the shelves before the iPads can be seized. Proview is seeking a 10 billion yuan ($1.5 billion) in compensation for using the name. Even though this might be a minor loss to Apple, this is a big issue that has been going on for a while that has pertained to the issue of overseas copyrighting and suing of American companies. This case might change the laws of how countries do business with other countries.

Driving on snow is quite a scary experience whether it be on the public streets or accidentally hitting a patch of the white-powdery stuff on a spirited canyon drive in the middle of winter. I cannot begin to fathom how it feels like to drive a F1 car on dry pavement and how much throttle control and precise steering it takes to drive fast (and keep the vehicle on pavement), but Nürburgring driving instructor Andy Gulden attacks the Nordschleife in an F1 car, after the 'Ring is covered in snow!
Even with the poor road conditions, Andy does not hesitate to go full throttle. He has strapped on a few cameras and recorded his winter lap around the 'Ring. Watch the video of his hair-raising yet under control winter session around the legendary Nordschleife.

As always with the top manufacturers of automobiles, there has been rivalries between companies competing for the fastest times and the better cars. Porsche and Audi both have released two convertible renditions on their already race-proven chasses. The Audi R8 is powered by their new V10 which outputs a generous 525HP that is mated to an all-wheel drive drivetrain. The Porsche Boxster Spyder still uses its traditional flat-6 motor with a 3.4 cubic liter displacement, outputting 320HP. This test was performed to see which 2012 roadster vehicle was faster around a circuit. Now, the circuit seems to be more technical than fast speed, but the Audi has the handicap of being able to utilize all 525HP being transferred to the road with all four tires. Please watch the video to see the results of the test. Both cars are performing on semi-wet conditions.

Ken Gushi, Formula D driver and spokesman for Scion, narrowly misses hitting a deer while testing the new Scion FR-S at Mt. Diablo State Park in Northern California. This amazing footage was recorded by the film crew in the helicopter on site and it shows the FR-S missing the deer by meer inches of the front bumper and bonnet. Gushi later commends the Scion team on the feel of the brakes and steering that averted the accident from happening. Here's the footage from the close encounter

Acura came out with a nearly 2 minute commercial on the new NSX concept. With this commercial already costing into the millions to air, they cut no corners with many top actors such as Jerry Seinfeld. Even though the NSX shown is still a prototype, it is exciting news since this has been Honda’s first sports car of any kind since the S2000.
This is Zack Borst’s winning entry to Chevrolet’s Route66 competition. It portrays a student that just graduated going completely ecstatic about his “graduation gift”.
Audi uses the vampire trend to advertise how their new headlights perform (albeit very well after this commercial).
This is Toyota’s commercial with a new slogan, “It’s Reinvented”.
Lexus has changed their game in the luxury department of automobiles with a more aggressive styling and performance.
These are just some of the interesting commercials that will be aired this Sunday. Watch the game to see all the ways companies are using their advertising creativity to catch your attention. (....)
Came across this really cool website. They carry anything with carbon fiber. At first, it just seems like any other ordinary website that you will see after 2 seconds of google search. Carbon fiber money clips, pens, staplers, ahhh....whatever... it is cool but not cool enough to reach my wallet.
There is a section for "Household" items, anything from carbon fiber toilet seat to a ultra luxury bathtub which cost a whooping $72,000. But my god, this is a piece of art. Espically the weaves that is layed out perfectly from one end to the other. Sleek body design and a vent of body lines on the side makes it like a spaceship. Here is a description that is posted on their website:

If, these are not enough for you, how about a Ferrari office chair for your receptionist at the front door?
This office chair, converted from a real Ferrari F430 Scuderia 16M is one of
the rarest seats we have ever offered. This is a black and red leather model
with contrast stitching (red on the black leather, black on the red leather),
and has a new radical shape and design. Although it looks strange to have the
cut out area around your kidneys and the opening between your knees, this
ergonomic change from Ferrari has proven to be one of their most comfortable
seats yet! The entire rear shell and side trim is clear coated real carbon
fiber. The headrest has an embossed prancing horse logo on it and just below it
an opening for shoulder racing belts.
This is an authentic and original seat removed from a very rare and special edition new F430 Scuderia 16M at dealer delivery (seems the car's owner didn't care for the color combo once the car came in and new replacement seats were ordered before the car was delivered to him). Only 499 of these cars were made worldwide!
The seat base is an average width with a deep and comfortable back, and this sculpted design fits any modern office. The seatback tilt can be adjusted with a few turns of the carbon fiber knob on the side of the seat. Your order also includes a custom base color of your choice and integrated arm rests. We can also do an authentic Scuderia factory paint option or an Italian theme.
How Each Chair Is Built
Each chair built is unique, the metal base and frame are actually painted separately for each order with a professional automotive quality paint job in a deep, high gloss metallic paint. Your price includes a custom color of your choice. Match it to your existing car's paint, a trim color in your office or anything else you desire. We only need a paint sample or paint code to finish your chair. We always have a few metallic silver and metallic black bases in stock for rush orders, for the custom paint there is about a 3 week processing time.
The mechanics of the bases are a Synchro knee-tilter from Global's Ride collection. They are a full metal base and frame with sculpted sport wheels. The smooth synchronous tilting action maintains constant contact and support for your body in all postures. There are sculpted shift levers at the side of the seat to control the synchro-tilt mechanism and seat height. The rotating pivot arms are height adjustable.
How Seats Are Acquired
Our line of custom made of seats come from actual exotic sports cars and racecars. We find late model race conversions and parts cars and acquire the seats from around the world. Once we receive a new seat, it is disassembled, the leather is cleaned and conditioned, the unnecessary hardware is removed and a custom bracket is created to place the seat in the optimal position.
Because Leather has natural markings, and these seats do come from a pre-owned vehicle, some wear on the seat is to be expected. We have implemented a rating system to more accurately describe each chairs condition.
NEW: removed from car at dealer/shop before any use (common for race conversions)
10/10: may have been used for a brief period of time, no wear marks or defects, still looks "new"
9.5/10: may have a small scratch in leather surface at a non central location. Common from bumping the back or side during removal from the vehicle. many times the seats are such a tight factory fit that the base slides along the carpet and can scratch the leather surface
9/10: may have a small scratch in the leather in a more central location (seat base, back or headrest)
8.5/10: some breaking in of the leather surface, may have some discoloration in threads (common for brightly colored threads), or more prominent scratches
8/10: more pronounced breaking in of leather surface including some minor stretching of leather in high traffic areas
<8/10: see individual notes. Most of these are from the motorsports memoribilia collection and considered collectors items or very limited edition pieces based on production history and ownership history

Held every year at the Makuhari Messe Convention Center in the Chiba Prefecture, the Tokyo Auto Salon is an annual event and the largest car convention in the World. Many in the automotive industry come here every January to introduce their products and show what they have brought to offer to the general public. Many small tuning shops from all over Japan even come here to show what tuning services can be done to a wide variety of cars from their own domestic cars to even hot rods from America.
At the event, even the parking lot can be its own car display. With many people bringing out their own personally built cars and rare imports, it’s a show within a show. Some visitors even bring out their weekend track warriors.
Many of the top Japanese manufacturers and tuners brought out some of the most interesting looking cars in the world today. Love it or hate it, there was at least something at the show that everyone would be pleased at seeing. Top manufactures such as Toyota, Honda, Mitsubishi, and Nissan brought out their demo cars and concepts to ring in the New Year. Mazda brought out the RX-8 which will be ending production in the middle of the year. They are rumored to bring out the Spirit-R version to celebrate the ending of production of their rotary rocket.
Although the event was to reveal to the world what is new and what is trending in the automotive industry, the show also paid homage to many of the old school and legendary cars of the past. For the first time in a good while, the Mazda 787B race car that won the 1991 24 hours of Le Mans was fired up and brought around the parking lot’s makeshift circuit. The amazing sound of the four-rotor race machine certainly have must woke up the crowd.
Toyota had their own tribute to the legendary AE86 chassis with the new Toyota GT86 (Scion FR-S in the U.S.). True to its roots, the GT86 was already showing off its great potential around the demonstration circuit. Even though the car hasn’t even hit production lines, many of the top tuners of japan such as GReddy and HKS have tuned versions of the car sporting their own unique liveries. TRD even released their sport-tuned version for the show.
Overall, the show was a big success and many new cars to look forward to. With the amount of new products at the show, this will be turning out to be an interesting year for the industry.
There are many things in the world, both natural and man-made, that never ceases to amaze. The grandeur of the Himalayas, for example, has captured both the visual aspect as well as the challenge aspect. Sometimes, the most amazing or eye-opening things can happen right here at home.
One member of S2KI, andyKAISENSPEED, has proceeded to leave his mark on the vast realm of creativity. His goal is to swap a J32A2 motor (a V6 motor taken from the early 2000’s Acura TL and CL) into his Honda S2000. In his build, he states that he wants to mount an engine into the S-chassis that has more torque than the rev-happy F20C/F22C. He even plans to turbo the motor right from the start!
Mated to a stock S2000 6-speed transmission, the engine sits on custom one-off motor mounts and a custom turbo manifold, this thing is sure to pull big numbers on the dyno. Add that with a light weight and nimble chassis of the S2000, it may be a killer combo. Whatever the results, this project has already left its mark in the automotive world.

2012 brings in another year of change. Change of lifestyles, change of interests, and now a change of freedom. The new bills SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act) will, if passed, indefinitely change the face of internet as we know it today. If we should let these bills pass, many of the top sites you visit today will be shut down without notice and without a fair trial in court. This means that major websites who infringe “copyright laws” will be gone.
Imagine a world without Wikipedia to use as a study tool or just a website to further your knowledge of a subject you may be lacking in. Many other websites, including Reddit, Wired, and even Google, oppose these bills. Let your voice be heard! Contact your representative and let them know how you feel about the bills. Remember, this is YOUR country not solely just the governments’. Censorship has been a big issue recently in other countries and it seems as if the United States is falling suit.
Quoted from ABC News (abcnews.go.com):
“The bills were intended to protect movie makers, music publishers and other providers of online content who fear that in the digital age, people can copy what they’ve created and spread it without paying for it. They’ve said digital pirating is a major threat to their businesses. Supporters include the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Motion Picture Association of America. The Walt Disney Company, the parent company of ABC News, is among the firms supporting the legislation.
Internet companies have been complaining that the bills put them in the untenable position of having to be online police. They say they worry that the two bills could hold them responsible if users of their sites link to pirated content.
The companies said the bills could require your Internet provider to block websites that are involved in digital file sharing. And search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing could be stopped from linking to them — antithetical, they argue, to the ideal of an open Internet.”
Please let your representative know! Without support, these two bills that will limit our use of the internet severely can and will pass. The future of the internet lies in our hands.
Please sign this petition on Google.com: (www.google.com/landing/takeaction)
A simple way to let your representative know is to use the Wikipedia tool they have put in place of their usual website for today only (en.wikipedia.org).(....)
Since the Honda Civic revealed itself in 1973, it started out as a compact econo-box that was gas saving for the average customer throughout the world. It came in different trims and eventually had a sports model with an upgraded engine and revamped suspension.
In 1992, the civic really grew up and became one of the most iconic vehicles in the market at its time. Sporting a longer 101.3 inch wheelbase compared to the older model (98.4 inches), its sleeker design revolutionized styling for economy cars. The headlights were reshaped and round as compared to the boxy previous version. Taillights and bumpers were also redesigned to create a reduced drag coefficient of 0.32, increasing gas efficiency. There were 3 different body types, a coupe, sedan, and 3 door hatchback variant. Curb weight is set at 2300 to 2500 lbs. with some variations due to different trims and options. To increase performance, the double wishbone suspension style was retained from the previous Civic model.
In 1996, the Civic was revised and improved upon. The headlights and taillights increased in size as well as the overall size of the car. The car increased in size by about 2 to 4 inches and the wheelbase increased to 103.2 inches. Curb weight remained relatively the same and the suspension designed was also retained. In 1998, a new platform based on the Civic was introduced in Japan called the Civic Type-R. Based on the existing EK9 chassis (hatchback of the ’96 generation), the suspension was stiffened and the biggest change is the engine. It sports a 1.6 liter B16B motor with a limited slip differential as standard equipment. The interior was re styled with Recaro bucket seats and red accents all over the door panels and seats to make it stand out from the regular Civic line. The chassis was also revised with a monocoque chassis which was seam welded in key points to reinforce the chassis even further.
Although the Type-R wasn’t introduced to the American market, Honda released the Si variant which came in coupe form. It received a 1.6 liter engine like the Japanese counterpart, but it came with smog equipment in order to meet CARB requirements for the state of California. This was the last of the Civic SI’s to receive the dual wishbone suspension. Later models received a McPherson type strut in order to cut costs.
These were the golden days for the Honda Civic. With a wide array of aftermarket support and many in-house Japanese tuners that produce high quality parts as well as other tuners across the world, the Civic has indeed left its mark in automotive history and also made many things that were strictly options for the car market as standard equipment. Although the Civic has taken some steps back in some areas for the consumer market, it still is a key innovator in both design and performance. Only time will tell how the front engine, front wheel drive chassis will hold up, but so far it has definitely proved its worth not only as an econo-box that revolutionized the market, but also in the very competitive world of open-wheel racing and time attack.

HPDE (High Performance Drivers Education) refers to driving schools held on dedicated race tracks designed to teach drivers proper high speed driving techniques.
HPDE events are not racing.
Cars on-track operate under strict "rules of engagement" which minimize the
likelihood of dangerous encounters with other cars. Occasional off-track
excursions into the grass are normally controlled stops, with track personnel
and on-board instructors supervising a safe re-entry onto the track. Passing
among participants is facilitated only within defined "passing zones", and then
only with clear hand signals and instructor confirmation.
Some HPDE events also include a "Time Trial" segment, usually conducted at the end of the day, where advanced students who have been "signed off" to drive without an instructor compete for fastest lap times. Time Trials are also conducted under strict rules which maximize track safety.
Some HPDE events available in Southern California includes:

REDLINE TIME ATTACK
Redline Time Attack is a North American auto racing series
that emerged with its first racing season in 2006. It is currently the leading
time-attack racing series in North America. The basic format of time-attack
racing is that production based sports cars compete for the fastest single lap
around a paved road course. The cars range from lightly modified to very heavily
modified production cars. Cars are classed based on their drive type (FWD, RWD,
or AWD) and level of modification. Time Attack is most often associated with
Japanese autos, because the sport originated in Japan, but all makes and models
are allowed to compete in Redline Time Attack events.
The courses are typically popular paved road courses such as Buttonwillow, Laguna Seca, Sebring, or Autobahn. Since drivers compete against the clock, instead of wheel-to-wheel as in traditional road course racing, the potential risk to participants is minimized. It is common for participants to use their daily driven autos in competition in the entry classes. The higher classes include semi and fully professional racing teams who often have some level of sponsorship. In addition to the traditional Time Attack, Redline Time Attack also includes a Super Session which consists of a 5 lap sprint race with a traditional wheel-to-wheel format. Participation is limited to teams with a sufficiently fast qualifying lap and possessing a car with the required safety equipment.
You do not need a high performance car to participate in these events, look below for a Green-gas-saving-prius owner learning how to drive.
The new 2013 Porsche Boxster
Porsche has stepped up their game again. The new and improved Boxster not only has more aggressive styling, it also has better economy for those that want to be greener and still drive a sporty car. Although the official debut of the 2013 Boxster won’t be until the Geneva Motor Show, there have been some details since the press release.
The new Boxster will be sporting an all-aluminum exterior in order to shed some weight to improve performance and to increase fuel economy. The performance of the new roadster has also taken some improvements:
“…behind the seats are two flat-six engines with direct injection, thermal management and start/stop functionality. The base Boxster uses a 2.7-liter flat six, good for 265 horsepower (10 hp more than its predecessor) while the Boxster S is powered by a 3.4-liter six that produces 315 hp (an increase of 5 hp versus the 2012 model). The standard Boxster will run to 60 miles per hour in 5.4 seconds with the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission, while the Boxster S will do the same jaunt in just 4.7 seconds. A six-speed manual gearbox (what, no seven-speed?) is also available with either engine. Porsche will offer a Sport Chrono package that further enhances performance, adding things like dynamic transmission mounts and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV).” (via Autoblog)
The new 2013 Boxster is set to hit the U.S. market in the summer. Prices are $49,500 for the base model and the Boxster S is going for $60,900.

Aston Martin - Cygnet
The Aston Martin Cygnet is a 3-door hatchback marketed by
Aston Martin beginning with model year 2011 as a rebadged variant of the Toyota
iQ. The Cygnet enables Aston Martin to comply with the European Union-imposed
fleet average emissions regulations taking effect in 2012.
Aston Martin Cygnet Interior
The Cygnet will be available initially only in the UK, and then to other EU countries. Production and sales commenced in January 2011 and the market coverage will expand by 2012. Sales will not be restricted; however, it is expected that demand from existing Aston Martin owners for Cygnet would initially take priority. Aston CEO Ulrich Bez recently announced shipping expectations of about 4000 per year at a price of about £30,000 about three times as much as the iQ. Bez claims that the Cygnet demonstrates the company's "commitment to innovation and integrity", whilst respecting the need to "satisfy demands of emissions and space".
Aston Martin's changes to the design were limited to slight exterior tweaks and a reworked interior, with aspects of the Toyota's hard-plastic interior remaining.
The Cygnet has 97 bhp (72 kW; 98 PS) 1.3L straight-4 engine, it produces 110g of CO2/km and the fuel consumption is 58.9 mpg-US (3.99 L/100 km; 70.7 mpg-imp).
o... and here is the key for it...
Acura NSX Hybrid "Concept"
Finally, after more than a decade of guessing, Acura has give the NSX fans a little more hope by throwing out a 2012 Concept NSX which will feature with a V6 Hybrid mid-engine/All-wheel-drive layout. The SH-AWD system consists of two electric engines which operate independently of each other and can generate positive or negative torque to the front wheels during cornering. The V6 SH-AWD system will be paired with a dual clutch transmission outfitted with its own electric motor giving the NSX three separate electric power plants.
President and CEO of Honda Motor Co. Takanobu Ito said, “In this new era, even as we focus on the fun to drive spirit of the NSX, I think a supercar must respond positively to environmental responsibilities.” Ito also revealed that the NSX will be a production model within the next three years and it will be built in an Ohio car plant.
