Lots more pictures from this year's auto week in Monterey coming soon, but I might as well kick things off with this one of the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo.

Beautiful Packard. Always delighted to see cars like this being driven rather than trailered.

I love that the steering wheel is attached to the center of the door that is also the windshield, hood and entry!

They should release the tememetry data as well. They say that they have lost it somehow, but they must have it.

Spotted this beautiful Porsche 356 in the parking lot at IKEA. While it certainly wasn't the only Porsche at IKEA, it was my favorite.

Not sure why Tesla waited until after Pebble Beach to make this announcement, but the P100D Ludicrous mode Model S and Model X are now official.

2.5 sec 0-60 mph, in a four door sedan with seating for up to 7. Nuts.
The Model S P100D with Ludicrous mode is the third fastest accelerating production car ever produced, with a 0-60 mph time of 2.5 seconds. However, both the LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder were limited run, million dollar vehicles and cannot be bought new. While those cars are small two seaters with very little luggage space, the pure electric, all-wheel drive Model S P100D has four doors, seats up to 5 adults plus 2 children and has excepti...

It is not rocket science. Internal combustion is yesterday's hero.

The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 at Pebble Beach. I love the dimensions on this car. 2 doors (Gullwing, of course), and over 18 feet long.

You might think it's packing a V24 under that long hood, but it's all electric. 80kwh, 738 hp, 200 mile range.

Kinda agree...
Isn't all this just about excessive (obsessive?) consumption?

Yes, it's a commercial and yes, it's old. But I never get tired of watching it. That sound.

Palo Alto Art Center and Library are littered in Pokestops. Also, the Midtown Walgreens and CVS area.

I've always loved the Honda Prelude (I still miss my 5th gen Type SH), so I was delighted to stumble across this beautiful, obviously cherished and well maintained 1st gen.

We can all forgive Honda for missing a step with the 4th gen (even though it was cherished by some, I was never a fan).

And while I've accepted the S2000 was a more than worthy successor, it too is gone now. Here's hoping Honda brings them both back soon.

Introduction
“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.” – John F. Kennedy, Rice University, Houston, Texas, September 12, 1962
