As a die-hard BMW fanatic I see how the ///M brand has sacrificed weight and raw power over marketability. I am still loyal to the brand, but Lexus and other makes are catching up. So it's not too surprising that Matt Farah thinks the RF-C is catching up. It's kind of sad for this Bimmer to see that they are… » 9/29/14 6:50pm Yesterday 6:50pm

I think the reactions by the people when Obama was confirmed as the next President of the US is worth recording because he was the first non-white person to be elected given how divisive and improbable that would have been only a few generations ago. » 9/29/14 10:55am Yesterday 10:55am

I love the deep insightful commentators who contribute to something meaningful to the discussion of the post. I don't think simply making one liner jokes about the topic warrants a meaningful contribution. I also think I am able to detect blatant trolling and spamming. » 9/23/14 12:08am 9/23/14 12:08am

I admit that I jumped up and down with excitement when I first heard this and am really sad by the recent findings. In a way, I implicitly trusted such prestigious institutions and wanted to share in the joy of Andrei Linde and his wife's reactions but in the end scientific proof has to triumph over any wishful… » 9/22/14 11:47pm 9/22/14 11:47pm

I've recently started appreciating how cute donkeys are so this takes the cake. I never understood how cats who are instinctively "afraidy cats" can nuzzle the mouths of animals (donkeys, dogs, horses, and humans) who can swallow them whole. OK, I can't swallow my cats whole, not even close. » 9/21/14 8:31pm 9/21/14 8:31pm

I agree with you that Alonso is the best of his generation and I can see him being seen down the road as one of the fastest and best drivers in the history of F1. But I disagree that Hamilton is only good and not great. If he even gets one more championship, Hamilton will be locked in as one of the greatest F1 drivers… » 9/21/14 8:26pm 9/21/14 8:26pm

It always amazes me that Count Albrecht Goertz wasn't as prolific as other designers but was responsible for one of the most beautiful BMWs (and cars overall). The Internet says that multiple people were responsible for the design of 240z but I can see his involvement in it. » 9/21/14 8:18pm 9/21/14 8:18pm

The first and only time I ever saw a Carrera GT was in Monterey. My friend and I had just spent the day watching the historics at Laguna Seca (2011?) and figured there would be some decent food in Monterey so we drove in and we had no idea there was all the hoopla from Pebble Beach. There was a silver Carrera GT being… » 9/20/14 4:32pm 9/20/14 4:32pm

The Aztec is the pinnacle of 80's Japanese techno design for me. Italdesign by Giugiario was so good at its time like Aztec, BMW M1, Nazca; they were all so 80's Japanese Robotech designs then and they were awesome. The styling element is definitely dated now but I think decades later if not now, it will be… » 9/20/14 3:23am 9/20/14 3:23am

Those were different times back then for sure; gentlemen racing and all that. But if the monetary stakes were as high as it is now, maybe he would might have reconsidered for a brief moment but given his character, I doubt it. I think that he is totally OK with accepting his place in motorsports history despite not… » 9/17/14 10:14pm 9/17/14 10:14pm
