I've always liked the +Audi International A3, looks like a great little car. I was always bummed that I couldn't get a TDi in all wheel drive though.

I think I could live with this one.
Audi has taken to the stage at this year's TED2012 Conference in Long Beach, California to announce its first e-tron pilot program for the U.S.Audi

This is what a racecar should sound like! I do love the sound of the electric motor, but then the V8 fires up as it gets going... I can wait to see this thing try to compete with the TDI Audis.

Some beautiful pictures for the 2012 Dakar Rally (that goes through South America now)
Traversing over 8000 miles through Argentina, Chile, and Peru, the Dakar rally pits drivers and riders against each other and against extreme terrain. The 14-stage race attracts competitors from over...

I've dreamed of doing this many times, I'm glad someone did it for me and filmed it.

The NTSB wants to ban mobile phones while driving. I 100% disagree with this. This is another case of treating the symptom while ignoring the cause. Distracted driving is very mush a safety issue and one that must be dealt with, but banning phones is not the solution.

The solutions is to actually teach people how to drive, and how to respect the extremely dangerous act of driving in the process.

Step 1: Allow people to fail the driving test as they should. If they answer a question incorrectly, bummer, you're done until you can test again in a month. Two questions will get most drivers to fail. What does a yellow light mean, and what are turn signals used for. The answers must be specific. Turn signals are NOT, I repeat, NOT used to tell others that you are turning.

Step 2: Add accountability to driving laws, failure to abide means loss of license until you can take the test and pass. (This must have a level of severity added, but it cannot be written, it must be the judgment of the officer)

Step 3: Re-think the current laws to include other modes of transport such as motorcycles, bikes, pedestrians, and even computer controlled vehicles.

Step 4: Enforce ALL the laws. Don't use a turn signal correctly, you get stopped. You may not get a ticket, but you are informed of your mistake and noted (this is where the hard lined rules need to be fixed and give judgment back to the officer).

Step 5: You must pass the test again at at regular intervals. I, and probably most drivers out there have not seen a drivers test or had their ability and knowledge of the laws and safety tested since they were 16. For me that was 15 years ago.

We need to gain a respect for driving again, the reason people are crashing while using their phone is not the phones fault, it is the fact that the user has no clue seriousness and danger of operating a deadly vehicle.

Here in the US every 16 year old has a car and a license and it is believed to be a right... it is not. Driving is a privilege and it must be treated as such.
In August of last year, a 19-year-old pickup driver received 11 texts in as many minutes while traveling down a Missouri highway outside Gray Summit. The

Its too bad, I thought they looked great and were a good concept.
Just over a month ago, Aptera was promising rebirth with Aptera 2.0. The promise will not be kept. Today, the company announced it is closing its doors,

What happens when a bunch of engineers decides to take the drivetrain and engine from a Nissan GT-R, and shoehorn it into a Juke? Well, just watch mini-Godzilla just eat up a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, a Mercedes SLS AMG, and a Ferrari 458 Italia like they are nothing..

Consideration and awareness of others on the road goes a long way to making driving safer. Lifehacker has a good article on simple things you can do to help.

I have an addition:
Use your turn signals, and use them before you turn to let others know your intentions. On the other side, if someone has their signal on, allow them room to merge or safely make their turn.
Driving can be a stressful activity. You can get caught in traffic jams, lose a good parking spot, get cut off, or be on the receiving side of a little road rage.

DRIVE, a new car show series is just getting started on YouTube. This is their first episode, a short documentary of the Nurburgring 24 hour race. Lots of potential for this show.

Pretty good looking car from +TOYOTA. As far as I know, we will be getting a Scion called the FR-S as our version of this in the US, Not sure about the Subaru BRZ though.
