  2. The new face does not look like a Porsche at a quick glance. Putting the look aside, one of the highlight is it unique active suspension system. The optional Porsche Active Ride, available for E-Hybrid, allows the car to lean into corners like a motorcycle, by keeping the body flat and even overcompensate for the vehicle’s pitch and roll movements The standard two-chamber, two-valve air suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management separates the damper’s compression and rebound control for greater comfort. Rear-axle steering is also optional for all model. Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid Porsche Panamera 4 Porsche will offer four different E-Hybrid powertrains, including the all-powerful Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid. It packs a revamped twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine and an electric motor powered by a 25.9-kilowatt-hour battery. Total output is 670 horsepower and 929 Newton-meter of torque, sending power to all four wheels via an eight-speed PDK transmission. It can hit 100 kilometers per hour in 3.0 seconds and reach a top speed of 314 km/h. The Panamera and Panamera 4 get a turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 engine under the hood. It produces more power than before, pumping out 348 hp and 499 Nm of twist – an increase of 23 hp and 50 Nm, respectively. The V6 can propel the regular model to 100 km/h in 5.0 seconds and help it reach its 272 km/h top speed. The all-wheel-drive Panamera 4 can achieve that same feat in 4.7 seconds, reaching 270 km/h.

  4. What do most modern performance cars have in common? If you answered Michelin tires then you’re on the correct track. Every time a new high-performance car debuts it seems more and more common to see a set of bespoke set of Michelin tires as part of the build package. Based on a press release by Michelin Japan we get a glimpse into Michelin’s quest to improve upon the best tire on earth the current Michelin PS 4S tire with the all-new Michelin Pilot Sport 5. In recent years tires have gained a lot more respect. Sure a new set of tires isn’t as exciting as an ECU tune, or a new set of coilovers, but a good set of tires can transform your car’s driving experience. Good tires can improve every measurable metric of your car’s performance and they’re the only part of your car that’s supposed to touch the ground. That means all the engineering that goes into your car’s construction relies on the tires to perform. Now that we’re established the importance of tires why does the new Michelin Pilot Sport 5 stand out? Well based on qualitative data and quantitative information from years of reviews, many agree that the current Michelin Pilot Sport 4S is the best tire on the market. The new Michelin Pilot Sport 5 improved upon the Pilot Sport 4S in both quantitative testing and qualitative feedback. The new Pilot Sport 5 is 1.7% seconds faster than the Pilot Sport 4S on a wet lap on Michelin’s test track. In addition to the wet performance, the Pilot Sport 5 is 1.5% faster than its predecessor on a dry lap. The New Pilot Sport 5 press release isn’t just about numbers either. Michelins goes into detail about how they improved the feel of these new tires, which should result in even more driving pleasure. We can’t wait to try these out.
  5. Honestly, I can't tell that it is a new gen Cayenne with just a quick glance at the photos, too evolutionary imo. Like many I am guessing that Dieselgate is hitting hard on VAG and budget cut on the development of newer Porsche model are evident... The new SUV will be officially unveiled tonight / tomorrow morning. Stay tune for more updates.
  6. A long overdue model in Subaru lineup. Still as good as before? Subaru of America introduced the all-new 2022 WRX with the most advanced features, design, and performance in its nearly 20-year history. The fifth-generation rally icon is powered by a new 271 hp 2.4-liter turbocharged Subaru BOXER® engine that is paired with either a 6-speed manual transmission or new automatic transmission. With available high-definition tablet-style 11.6-inch SUBARU STARLINK® Multimedia system and latest generation EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, the 2022 WRX delivers greater performance, technology, and safety than ever before. Also new for 2022, the Subaru WRX adds a new top-of-the-line GT trim with a new automatic transmission, the Subaru Performance Transmission, as standard. The new WRX GT offers a first-ever for WRX, new electronically controlled dampers that can tailor the dynamic performance to the driver's preferences with Comfort, Normal, and Sport settings. The Drive Mode Select also offers additional options to configure steering feel, damper settings, SI-Drive settings, and more, with up to 430 different customization options. For the first time, the WRX is built on the Subaru Global Platform, which offers increased safety, improved dynamics, and reductions in noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH). The 2022 WRX will be available at Subaru retailers in early 2022. But before fan boy rejoice, as usual, the press photos will typically shown the top spec trim. For entry level WRX, you will get this screen instead... You have been warned.
  7. Dear all, We can soon see Michelin sport 4. http://tyresearch.telegraph.co.uk/r-new-tyres-advice/the-michelin-pilot-sport-4-on-show-at-frankfurt-27847 The Michelin Pilot Sport 4 on show at Frankfurt New tyres Tyre manufacturer Michelin is showcasing its new sports tyre, the Pilot Sport 4, at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. A much anticipated tyre that is up against some keen competition. Michelin’s long-awaited new summer sports tyre, the Pilot Sport 4, is finally on show at the Frankfurt Motor Show. - Copyright © : Michelin On the same topic Michelin launches it new sports tyre, the Michelin Pilot Sport 3 Continental SportContact 6: Rezulteo’s test Firestone Multiseason, an all season tyre for city cars Competition in the sport’s tyre segment is rife, while Continental has just launched the SportContact 6, Michelin is currently presenting the latest addition to its Pilot Sport range at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The Pilot Sport range has earned a solid reputation, especially for its most versatile version which until now was the Pilot Sport 3, a tyre available on the market since 2010. To ensure continuity, the PS4 goes even further than its predecessor offering significant progress in several areas, mainly thanks to Michelin’s experience in racing. Driving pleasure Logically, the Pilot Sport 4 places the emphasis on driving sensations and pure efficiency. For this, its structure features a reinforced belt to keep any tyre deformation to a minimum and, as a result, improves driving precision, dynamic response and of course, the level of pure grip. Copyright © : Michelin Geared towards safety The PS4 is a tyre designed to equip passenger cars. As such, it must deliver an excellent level of safety in all weather conditions. Its new tread compound has been developed with this in mind, just like its wide grooves providing efficient water evacuation. However, the brief presentation did not provide any further information about this new Michelin tyre. We hope to compare it with other reference tyres in the high performance segment in the near future to truly evaluate its potential. Let’s hope it achieves its efficiency. Availability The Pilot Sport 4 will be available on the market in January 2016, and initially, only in 17- and 18-inch sizes. New sizes will be available later, and in particular, 19-inch sizes.

  8. Hi member, my car coe going to end, looking for any nice 2 door car best only 2 Seater, any suggestions?
  9. Hi bros, anyone any comments on this car? Quite a good proposition (at least for my needs)... Worry about FC and maintenance. OMV= $25-26k Selling= $95.8k or $96.6k http://www.vwasia.com/publish/vwasia/singa...els/touran.html
  10. Need some valuable inputs from the experts here. I am currently driving a 12 years old Suzuki Swift Sport ZC31S. I must say the driving experience has been great along these years. My entire family is small sized hence space is not an issue and personally I like to drive small cars. Until the recent years after my first child was born. I start to feel the car has 0 level of comfort. Suspension is horrible, can feel every bump on the road. Wind/road noise seems fine. Suspension is really dam rough I tried doing the following things to "soften the suspension" 1) Swap aftermarket suspension back to stock. A good condition item 2) Tyres downsized to 15" 195/60/15 I am not looking for comfort levels of the standards of luxury cars but looking forward to enhance the comfort of my ride to the likes of maybe a old altis/latio/elantra? If the following can be fulfilled with any aftermarket solution, any opinion is much welcomed! 1) Tone down the acceleration and braking power. Every time when I apply gas/brakes my family members will make noise they "surge forward/backwards" 2) A softer and more comfortable suspension as compared to stock. 3) If I change Tyres to 185/60/15 will it improve on anything? By the way my entire vehicle is stock for these years Sorry if this post is weird in anyway. I am just looking for a more comfortable ride for my family without the need to buying a new car.
  11. Now this is not very smart. Thanks to social media apps like Instagram allowing news to spread like bush fire, you now best keep your 'bad' stuff to yourself... Check out this video of some mates videoing themselves going at high speed on our expressways in the wee morning of 10th May 2020. As seen on SG Road Vigilante, this insta story posted by n1zem, shows them going as fast as 180km/h in their Suzuki Swift Sport. Granted, the roads are pretty empty as we are in the midst of the Circuit Breaker period but there is still no reason for going this fast. For those who are wondering, 'Naked Crew" is a local car group and they can be found on Instagram. As usual, the comments by netizens are harsh and probably a bit hurtful. 1.mp4
  12. The replacement for the Pilot Super Sport, the Pilot Sport 4S, is the culmination of a lot of behind the scenes work. http://www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/car-technology/videos/a32408/michelin-pilot-sport-4-s-engineering-explained/ MICHELIN’S NEW ULTRAHIGH PERFORMANCE TIRE CAN MAKE ANY CAR FEEL LIKE A SUPERCAR http://www.digitaltrends.com/cars/michelin-pilot-sport-4-s-testing/
  13. Audi‘s next generation S3 model will also be available in Sedan form, featuring the same updated design and improved tech as its hatchback sibling. We can see loads of sporty-looking bits underneath this prototype’s camouflage, such as the chunky front and rear spoilers, large dual-spoke wheels and most of all, the quad exhaust pipe setup which points to this being anything but slow in a straight line. The new S3 Sedan will boast the same hexagonal grille and updated headlights as the rest of the fourth-gen Audi A3s. Still, the front bumper will feature bigger intakes, the profile will have more pronounced side sills, and the wheels will be bigger. At the rear, expect a slightly more elegant design compared to the current iteration, as well as updated taillights with modern graphics. The interior of the next A3, regardless of variant, will have a surprisingly angular design judging by previous images. The dashboard is also driver-oriented, and is expected to feature the automaker’s 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster as well as the latest in infotainment software. Under the skin we expect a similar setup to what’s available right now, namely a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch and Quattro all-wheel drive, altough power and torque figures could increase from the current model’s 295 HP (300 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm). Its main competitor, the CLA 35, has 302 HP (306 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm), so a slight bump is not out of the question. Since it’s possible we’ll see the all-new A3 and A3 Sedan debut before the end of this year, the more performance-oriented S3 will likely show up in 2020.
  14. Anyone here bought it? Any review and comments?
  15. Hi Guys, I find Astra GTC is quite funky and energetic but Golf 1.4 TSI is popular among buyers. Under the boot, GTC churns out less 20 horeses than its counterpart Golf 1.4 TSI. There are quite a number of Golfs on the road but find that Astra GTC is hard to spot on. What are your opinions on these 2 cars? Would like to hear pros and cons from serious ownership's view.
  16. Bugatti claims that the Chiron Sport can hit 420km/h flat out. But is it true? Top Gear's Charlie Turner has been given the chance to experience a top speed run in a Chiron Sport at Volkswagen's Ehra-Lessien test track. In its video, Turner can be seen accessing the full potential of the Chiron with a special key that activates the “high speed” mode. With the correct tyre pressures and car warmed up, he lines the car up after the turn at 200km/h before giving it all. With a straight of more than 8km long, the 8.0-litre, quad-turbo W16-equipped Chiron Sport unleashes all its 1479bhp, allowing Turner to easily go into the 400km/h range quite easily. Eventually, we see in the video that Turner managed to hit 423km/h, showcasing the genius engineering that went into its creation.
  17. Hi, Would like to check if CM models ZC31S original audio system is able to connect bluetooth & play music. Thanks in advance !
  18. Audi has released a teaser image showing six upcoming models in celebration of the 25th anniversary of its RS models. With Audi not saying what these car shadows could be, we are guessing the first two to be the new RS6 Avant and RS7 Sportback. They are expected to use the familiar 4.0-litre V8 turbocharged engine that will have more than 600bhp. The next two is a mystery but it does look like it could RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback. Expect the compact SUVs to be equipped with a turbocharged 2.5-litre five-cylinder engine that produces more than 400bhp. Next up is also a wild guess but we are betting it to be the new facelifted RS4 Avant. It will likely be using the same turbocharged 2.9-litre V6 engine that develops 444bhp in the current model. Finally, the largest shadow is probably the RS Q8, a sister car to the Lamborghini Urus. It remains to be seen on whether it will have the same power output as the Urus but is likely to use the same 4.0-litre V8 turbocharged engine present in the Lamborghini SUV.
  19. Hi, Anyone use Bridgestone techno sport tyres before? Any review will be much appreciated. Time to change tyres for my ride.
  20. I just changed the tires few days ago , since they having a sale fast hand and legs got it installed ( my review since many donkey years back) it's quiet compare to my old p zero , prolly sidewall is bit softer vs italian , but comfort wise is not bad, grip is good and no screeching sound when corner hard . so far that's all i found out.
  21. Suzuki has released a new limited edition model of its Swift Sport for the people living in the Netherlands with quite a few upgrades. For those who don't ride, the name Katana is one of the company’s most iconic motorcycles launched in 1981, which also happened to make a return for 2019. Paying tribute to the Suzuki Katana motorcycle, the warm hatch is only available in Premium Silver Metallic and Super Black Pearl. Other than the decals and graphics shown in the photos, it is cool to note that each car will have a serial number near its c-pillar too. Moving on to the more interesting upgrades, the car gets black OZ 18-inch wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres, grey bumper trims and side skirts with a carbon fiber look. It also receives a lowered adjustable suspension, a strut bar, and an upgraded exhaust system. Unfortunately, there is no mention any increase in horsepower. Inside, a thicker sports steering wheel with a Katana badge and partial leather seats with embroidered Katana lettering provide some of the larger change. Owners might also be able to spoil several other Katana symbols around the car's floor mats and trimmings. Only 30 units will be built and the car will only be available in The Netherlands.
  22. The new generation of the Audi A5 will be officially revealed on June 2 with the company live-streaming the event online. The two-door version of the A4 is expected to be lighter by up to 100kg (220 pounds) and offer more room inside, courtesy of a longer wheelbase. The engine range will mirror that of the A4 as well, meaning a wide selection of turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, with more expensive versions coming with either a petrol or a diesel V6 turbocharged unit. Audi has been teasing its new coupe with a series of animated gifs on its social media for a while now, revealing design details like the front headlight treatment and the curvy rear quarters of the bodywork. Features like the Virtual Cockpit digital display is also present as expected. Apart for the two-door bodystyle, the new A5 will also get a convertible and a Sportback variant. Audi has been caught testing the range-topping RS5 which is reportedly going to use a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 unit in the place of the naturally aspirated 4.2-litre V8, with an output close to 500hp.
  23. Hi guys, Starting the v2.0 of this thread, since the previous one is full.
  24. Mall at Singapore Sports Hub to be named Kallang Wave By Christopher Tan SMRT and NTUC Fairprice have named their joint venture mall at the Singapore Sports Hub Kallang Wave. The 41,000sqm retail venue is targeted for a July opening although some outlets may start business from mid-June.
