According to Honda, “The next-generation camera technology helps the car retain a modern, clean and simple design, and complements the stepless A-pillars and flush ‘pop out’ door handles, also confirmed for the production version of the Honda e. Unlike conventional side mirrors, the cameras are contained within the width of the car and do not extend beyond the wheel arches.”
The company also claims that with the removal of the side mirrors, which can stick out a bit, it can help to reduce the drag of the car, which in theory should reduce the amount of energy required to move forwards, thus potentially extending the range of the car as a result. The cameras will transmit information to screens placed on the dashboard inside of the car.
Let's not act surprised by an aftermarket kit to put a 2JZ engine into the 2020 Toyota Supra. The new Supra's chief engineer, Tetsuya Tada, already advised anyone planning such a swap to "please buy the four-cylinder. It will be cheaper." What's surprising is that the kit is being advertised before the Supra's even gone on sale, and it's coming from CX Racing. The tuning firm offers a long list of equipment, but it might be most known for selling turbochargers and plumbing on eBay.
The company might also have been surprised by response to the 2JZ swap kit announcement. When CX Racing posted a render of a blue Supra with a blue-hued 2JZ dropped perfectly in the forward bay, naysayers streamed down from the hills. The primary gripe was that the B58, an engine only in production since 2015, hasn't been tuned to its limits, so why "swap in a heavier less efficient engine for the sake of nostalgia?" No one knew the B58 had so many defenders. We won't get the four-cylinder Supra in the U.S., so swaps will put more B58s on the market for those who covet their potential.
Nissan is offering UK customers up to £2,000 plus trade-in value for their old car if it means getting them into the full-electric Leaf.
This plan is part of Nissan's recently launched 'Switch Scheme', which helps out owners of cars with pre-Euro V engines, making it easier for them to switch to something newer and a lot more eco-friendly.
There’s this magical moment when a Skylanders fan puts a toy on the Portal of Power and watches the character burst to life in the game. In fact, that’s our official term for this experience – Magic Moment. It was coined shortly after the start of development on the first Skylanders game back in late 2008.
