Porsche's Le Mans racer wraps 1200-mile test, new WRX starts at $30K, Dodge's drag-racing honeypot

Intake: Porsche's next-gen endurance-racing prototype is 1200 miles closer to its 2023 competition debut. Though the German automaker won't contest the FIA's new top class until 2023, putting it on a similar schedule to rivals Cadillac and Ferrari, its prototype has left Stuttgart's Weissach test track to continue development on the international scene.

A big heavy electric Lotus SUV. Worst example of brand mismanagement I've ever heard of.

Yes. Rather oxymoronic (and moronic). Puts me in mind of an old Carlin bit: jumbo shrimp; plastic glass; military intelligence.

No adding lightness here going on. Just slap on a big slathering of lard here.

Any BEVs on the Felicity Ace? Look at that for the origin.

An upmarket WRX would have to have a better interior than the horribly cheap plastic interior they throw in any level of this car. You can spend a tiny bit more than the old STI version was priced at on the priciest version of this car. You have to be a WRX only type to really want this car. I've owned a WRX Wagon back in the day but I have zero interest for this car.

I know there's a joke/point to be made that the fire onboard the Felicity Ace can't be put out 'cause it's the Li ion batteries of the cars that are alight.  Is the industry ready to completely redesign all the auto carrier vessels? Imagine the new insurance premiums (which new car buyers will pay).
