Toyota To Add 400 Jobs In Mississippi For Next-gen Corolla

Toyota to add 400 jobs in Mississippi for next-gen Corolla

DETROIT — Toyota will invest $170 million in a plant in Mississippi to build the next generation of its Corolla sedan, the Japanese automaker said on Thursday. The investment will create 400 jobs over the next 12 months at Toyota's Blue Springs, Mississippi, plant. Toyota said the investment will include replacing the current production lines, allowing the facility "to produce advanced vehicles more efficiently and better adapt to changing market needs." The move is part of a commitment made by the automaker in 2017 to spend $10 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations over the next five years. Unlike U.S. automakers General Motors, Ford and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles — which are pulling back from passenger cars as American consumers abandon them in favor of higher-margin, more comfortable pickup trucks, SUVs and crossovers — Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Hyundai and Volkswagen have all invested in all-new versions of their sedan models.

2018 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Quick Spin Review | Beauty Before Brawn

2018 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Quick Spin Review | Beauty before brawn

The 2018 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 is an absolute beauty in person. And that's important, because, more than any other segment in the automotive marketplace, a personal luxury coupe has got to have the kind of attention-grabbing looks that can lead off the discussion about a brand-new vehicle. Like this one.

It's also important because the name Red Sport 400 conjures up a kind of performance imagery that the Q60's hardware doesn't quite live up to. But before we delve into the world of horsepower and torque, let's finish talking about style. Like most luxury marques these days, Infiniti is working really hard to put a variant of its instantly recognizable corporate face on everything it sells. Unlike some other automakers — *cough* Lexus *cough* — Infiniti has been mostly successful in the styling-led marketing push without making each new car a caricature of the model it replaced.

Android Oreo Distribution Has Increased By 400% Since February

Android Oreo Distribution Has Increased By 400% Since February

Back in February earlier this year, based on the stats that Google released for Android, it was revealed that Android Oreo had a distribution of about 1.1%. However it seems that in the next two months, those numbers have increased by leaps and bounds by about 400% because according to Google's latest stats, Android Oreo has been distributed to about 4.5% of Android handsets.

However what's interesting enough is that in February Android Nougat was the most used version of Android at 28.5% distribution. You would think that with Android Oreo increasing in distribution that Nougat's distribution would go down, but it seems to be the opposite because the latest figures have revealed that Nougat now commands about 30.8% of Android devices, an increase from a couple of months ago.

Toyota Yaris GRMN Will Be Limited To 400 Units In Europe

Toyota is making a long-awaited return to the performance market and especially at the hot hatch segment with the new Yaris GRMN but as it turns out, the company isn’t planning to sell as many as they can.

The Japanese company will cap production of Europe’s first Gazoo Racing model to just 400 units for the European market, with more than 100 of them destined for the UK, according to Autocar.

The Yin And Yang Of The 2017 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400

The yin and yang of the 2017 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400When we first drove the Q50 Red Sport 400, Infiniti had the car out at a prepared slalom-and-cone course in a large, open parking lot. The car was stacked up against another Q50 without the Direct Adaptive Steer steer-by-wire system, and the course was designed to show that the DAS-equipped Red Sport 400 (it's a $1,000 option) required less steering input to master the same course.

With all due respect to Infiniti, which is invested in this unfortunate system and has been working hard to revise it, the comparison doesn't make a lot of sense.

Lexus History: Allard P4 Prototype Based on Original LS 400 Up for Sale

A truly unique piece of Lexus history has been put up for sale on eBay — this 1992 Allard P4 is the only remaining prototype of an abandoned partnership that would have seen British sports car company Allard sell a reskinned version of the original LS 400. Here's more from Bring a Trailer:

A truly bizarre story involves the grand old British sports car company and Toyota negotiating a deal in which first-generation LS400's would be sold as Allards in an effort to capitalize on the reborn company's J2X Group C prototype. Unfortunately both efforts were destined to fail, leaving only a few racers and this lightly re-styled (but seemingly otherwise unmodified) Lexus as reminders.
