Raychelle VanderMeer's insight:

People are scared that Ford knows too much about what they are doing since they have gps in their cars. But National security says everything is fine. But Ford does know when and where you are speeding if you are.

Bodies In Bomb-Rigged Cars - Business Insider

Bodies In Bomb-Rigged Cars - Business Insider | Raychelle's Ce Project | Scoop.it
The security concerns come ahead of the Olympics in Sochi, which also lies near the Caucasus region, where an Islamic insurgency is simmering.
Raychelle VanderMeer's insight:

So this arrticle is pretty scary, Russian authorities said on Thursday that security forces had been put on combat alert in the southern Stavropol region after the discovery of six bodies with gunshot wounds in four different cars, three of which were rigged with explosives. Only one of the bombs went off and thank god  no one was hurt. But the killings are further heightening security concerns ahead of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, which also lies near the Caucasus region, where an Islamic insurgency is simmering.

How Many More Cars Will You Drive That You Can't Plug In? - Forbes

How Many More Cars Will You Drive That You Can't Plug In? - Forbes | Raychelle's Ce Project | Scoop.it
How Many More Cars Will You Drive That You Can't Plug In?
Forbes
As more and more all-electric and plug-in electric hybrid cars enter the market, I'm beginning to wonder how many more cars I'll own that don't plug in.
Raychelle VanderMeer's insight:

Personally, I’ve decided that my next car will have a plug. That isn’t so remarkable. Lots of people do. But I don’t think I’ll be alone. Before you decide you don't like  this notion, I want you to consider the fate of the extinct beast known as the Hummer. You remember them; just a few years ago they dotted the highways, oozing testosterone as if they ran on the stuff.

Mazda RX-7 to return in 2016 | Autocar

Mazda RX-7 to return in 2016 | Autocar | Raychelle's Ce Project | Scoop.it
The iconic Mazda two-seat coupé is set to be reborn in 2016, powered by a 250bhp rotary engine (Lots of love for our latest story on the next Mazda RX-7. Who wouldn't want one..?
Raychelle VanderMeer's insight:

I felt this arrticle was very interesting because Mazda’s line on the new RX-7 is “no concrete plans” but, privately, executives admit that the car and a new rotary engine are under development and that a launch date has been included in Mazda’s long-term product plan, publicised at the Tokyo show as five new cars by the end of financial year 2016’. The look of the RX-7 will follow the same simple design philosophy as the new MX-5. Mazda sources confirm that RX-7 work is going on in advanced design but the final shape has yet to be made into a production-ready form.

Review: 2014 Jeep Patriot Latitudes | The Smoking Tire

Review: 2014 Jeep Patriot Latitudes | The Smoking Tire | Raychelle's Ce Project | Scoop.it
By Zack Klapman The best super car in the world is stupid if you're driving across Alaska in January. Bentley does that ice record thing every y.
Raychelle VanderMeer's insight:

In my opinion The best super car in the world is stupid if you’re driving across Alaska in January. Bentlydoes that ice record  thing every year, and Bugatti drifted a Veyron around a ring of snow, but that’s not what they’re for. Thusly, if I complained that the Corvette made a poor vehicle for snowboarder transport, I wouldn’t be wrong. The importance of testing a car in the proper habitat isn’t an idea worthy of the Nobel Prize, but it’s something you have to remind yourself when you live in a perpetually 70-degree world populated by sports cars and our insane subjects for tuned.

Raychelle VanderMeer's insight:

Nose solutions for the 2014 regulations could leave F1 cars resembling "anteaters", the Italian magazine Autosprint has revealed.

 

The report published an image apparently originating from the mandatory FIA crash test undergone recently by Caterham's new

car. It depicts an impression of the 2014 nose on the so-called 'control plate' after the impact, confirming some observers' fears that the likely solutions are aesthetically questionable.

Raychelle VanderMeer's insight:

I read about the Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel. It has a diesel engine so it can go 28 miles to the gallon. It also has a large gas tank so it's about to go 680 miles to the tank. This jeep is good in all weather and even handled the snow and ice well. The interior  has heated seats and steering wheels with a sun roof and many other fancy things.

Raychelle VanderMeer's insight:
On Christmas day the owner of the latest iteration of the Aston Martin Rapide, the Rapide S, tried to make a short trip in his 550hp machine, a decision he would soon regret. Water made it’s was into the cars gaping front grille and burnt out all of the electrics. All the owner could do was abandon the car! ‘I was just trying to get home and it conked out. I thought I’d be okay, but I wasn’t,’ said the driver, who doesn’t want to be named. ‘It’s alright though, it’s only a car. I’m fine, and nobody was hurt – that’s the main thing.’ We are sure this will be one Christmas he will want to forget!

Still, the new Allroad Shooting Brake Concept previews the next-generation Audi TT that will be unveiled later this year.

Chinese carmaker BYD plans to begin selling cars in the US by ... | Raychelle's Ce Project | Scoop.it
BYD hopes to be the first Chinese carmaker to establish itself in the United States. So far, its attempts to sell the e6 electric car have failed.
Raychelle VanderMeer's insight:

I thought it was interesting to know that China buys a lot of cars – sales in the country surpassed 20 million in 2013 – but its domestic car industry is relatively new. Yet at least one company hopes to make a mark in one of the toughest export markets around: the good ‘ole U.S. of A. The car most likely to headline the company’s U.S. launch is the BYD Qin plug-in hybrid sedan (pictured above). Named after the dynasty founded by the emperor who unified China, it features headlights that – according to its maker – were inspired by Chinese calligraphy brushstrokes. To us, though, it looks a bit like it’s been in a crash.

Man Who Rigged Jeep To Crash Into White House Sentenced To 35 Months In ...

Via Iam Legion
Raychelle VanderMeer's insight:

This artticle was very interesting to read about, On June 9, just after 3 a.m., Reel "affixed a wooden block to the accelerator and reached into the vehicle to shift it into drive." The Jeep headed toward a Secret Service guard post, but ended up hitting a light post, a steel bollard, and a steel bike rack, causing $5,345 in damage to U.S. Park Service property. The Jeep was going 40 MPH at the time of impact. The action, Reel testified, was supposed to be a distraction so that he could sneak up to the White House and spray paint the "Don't Tread on Me" snake on the building, believing that it would inspire others to "stand up against government."
