Exotic Car | Porsche 959 Exotic Car

SomePorsche 959 people might already forgotten this exotic car but I still list this as one of the legendary ultimate supercars ever made, The Porsche 959 even only finishing as the second best supercars in the 80's this model made a name for Porsche, which they're now known to be the acceleration specialist because of the shocking numbers of Porsche 959 that can accelerate 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds well sure now that number is not that special anymore but in the 80's it is incredible, and that is their key weapon over their rival the Ferrari F40 which could only achieve it in 3.8 seconds.
supercarsJust like today the Exotic car Ferrari Enzo go up against the Porsche Carrera GT which is more like a dejavu, because in the late 80's Porsche 959 had a showdown against Ferrari's F40 which is in the spotlight, and it ends up the same as today which Ferrari always did got the edge in the straight road and the Porsche Catches up at the corners because of its acceleration.

I know the view of this Porsche 959 isn't as pleasing as it should be which is one of the weakness of this exotic car, people claims it look so much like the 911 but in my opinion it is what it should be, actually all Porsche cars look alike because that's their concept and their trademark they only differ in they're measurements but all of them has almost the same face and body, and this shouldn't even be an issue, the only downside of the Porsche 959 for me would probably be the interior design and materials which looks a bit crappy. but in terms of performance and exterior looks all I can say is Porsche 959 is already what it should be.

As for the performance of Porsche 959 it is almost perfect in its time, equipped with a twin turbocharged engine and a 4 wheel drive type, this exotic car performs extremely well in traction control over their 2WD rivals, and as a result it delivers a superior acceleration speed which over powered the Ferrari F40, although Porsche 959 didn't reach the top speed mark of 200 mph which they only acheive a shortahnded 197 mph but with this Acceleration numbers of 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, 0 to 100 mph in 8.3 seconds and 0 to 125 mph in 12.8 seconds it is certain that this car will be go down the history as one of the fastest accelerating supercars of all time.

This Corvette Stingray has its sleek silver color that has a shark like grille, and an arching fenders that rolls on big chrome wheels, which makes this exotic car a definite head turner and a 100% chick magnet, was probably inspired by the combination of Chevrolet 's original 1959 Stingray and the 1963 Corvette which was one of the coolest cars in the past as a lot of people may remember, and if this concept car was really released, we'll probably be experiencing a dejavu, for this Corvette Stingray is going to be another one of Chevy's coolest cars, and with GM making the right move in starring it in the movie Transformers 2 just like the Camaro, this exotic car Corvette Stingray is definitely going to make a big impact damage for its competitor.

TheAudi A1 new luxury compact car has a new challenger in the line up that challenges BMW 's 1 series and its MINI Cooper, introducing to you the Audi A1 which makes a big impact on last years auto show in Paris, this 4 door hatchback is the continuation of the discontinued A2, in which this car will be possessing the same size as the A3 but will be cheaper, one of the components on their cost reduction strategy is by equipping this Audi A1 with a steel body rather than using aluminum, and another is using of Volkswagen Golf IV 's platform a semi rigid rear axle which is much cheaper than the multi link and that could cost the price of this car to drop drastically.

Audi A1 comes with either a front wheel drive (FWD), or a All wheel drive (AWD) drive type with 6 speed transmission and would be powered by a hybrid 4 cylinder 1.4 turbocharged engine that is joined with a 20kw electric motor that can run independently up to 62 mph before its gasoline engine kicks in to recharge the battery when it drops to 20%, and don't under estimate Audi A1 's electric engine because it could run 0 to 62mph in 7.8 seconds, with this design Audi predicts this car could likely achieve an EPA of 60 mpg which would be one of the raw models of green friendly car.

Car | 2010 Mazda RX7 Car

As2010 Mazda RX7 we all heard rumors about a new 2010 Mazda RX7 being produce by Mazda, those RX7 lovers out there must be shaking with excitement, but still the question is will Mazda really release an improved RX7 or not? the answer is uncertain, base on a magazine interview on Mazda they say that they are definitely going to release a new revised rotary engine with more power and much more economy friendly in the early 2010, but they did not mention that the car would be a 2010 Mazda RX7, so it's really still uncertain to what car Mazda is planning to equip this new engine with, but if it is an all new RX7, Mazda 's really going to see a big impact on the market.

What we expect if it is a 2010 Mazda RX7, if it is then this car obviously won't be a luxury sports type, it would definitely be like its old self which is a mid price sports car that is ready to be modified and dragged, the 2010 Mazda RX7 will likely have a 18 inch wheels, rear spoilers, lower body kits, a firm competition suspensions, big disc brakes with ABS, traction control, definitely a 6 speed manual transmission and an optional 6 speed automatic with semi automatic transmission and it would be a rear wheel drive with a long-hood short deck proportion, and with an sporty nose.

They say the 2010 Mazda RX7 would be a rotary Hybrid, which makes a bit sense since their planning to make this new engine more economy friendly, but I prefer they don't make it a hybrid because this type of car usually are expensive there are other ways in making it an earth friendly car like equipping it with an equal or smaller engine but turbocharged. which would result in the same power but lower emission. 2010 Mazda RX7 car would probably look like those pictures shown.

Exotic Car | Ferrari F450 Exotic Car

AsFerrari F450 we all rumored Ferrari is planning to release the successor of their best selling baby sports exotic car F430, which of course none of us still is sure of the information about this car, but most probably they would call it the Ferrari F450 since there are more sources saying that this car would be powered by a 4.5 liter engine so we'll consider it the Ferrari F450, also a mid engine this exotic car is expected to have more power, lower emissions, better mpg, and of course more chick magnet than ever and as you may heard this exotic car will have a hardtop convertible.

The Ferrari F450 is actually the first Ferrari Mid Engine to have a power retractable hardtop convertible. instead of having a separate coupe for this, and as we look at the shape of this car, the curves made by this Ferrari F450 shows that this is a more luxury sports car type rather than just sports exotic car, just like a Aston Martin.

In order for the Ferrari F450 to achieve superior performance, it was said that a couple of features were made, one of it is reducing its weight making it lighter which they made use of the carbon fiber materials and for your information this exotic car has an all new platform which is largely made of aluminum, and the overall measurement of the F450 is about 2 inches shorter than the F430 which would probably drop 220 pounds of this car's weight.

The Ferrari F450 is also expected to have the feature "active aerodynamics", which is a series of hidden inner body which flaps open or closes depends on whichever is needed to make the airflow smoother in which can improve fuel efficiency by reducing wind's counter effect.
This exotic car will definitely have a V8 engine direct fuel injection with a racing style flat plane crankshaft which can lessen the emission while maintaining its power and could even be more fuel efficient, it is still unclear though to how big the engine of this car would be but with either engine they choose to put in this car, it would definitely produce a horsepower around 520 to 550 and I think they would also equip this car with their 7 speed twin clutch automated transmission which was use by the California.

It is either my prediction on the Ferrari F450 or it would be equipped with a 5.0 liter engine which it would be called F500 or it would still be called F450 but will be powered by a turbocharged 4.0 or 4.3 liter engine because of their objective of achieving lower emission and fuel efficiency. and this exotic car would probably look like one of those supercars in the pictures shown, but we still cannot claim any of this review to be certain because non of it was confirmed yet, but we'll surely keep you informed.

2010 Ferrari F450 Exotic Car specs
Type: Luxury sports car
Drive Type: rear wheel drive
Engine: 4.5-liter V8, or turbocharged 4.3 liter V8, or 5.0 liter V8
Horsepower: 520 - 550
