  • Buick plug-in hybrid crossover teaser

    When General Motors sells Saturn later this year it will lose more than a quarter of its sales of hybrid vehicles. Saturn, with no V8 models, full-size SUVs or pickups, is GM’s most fuel-efficient brand and is second only to Chevrolet for overall hybrid sales with its Vue and Aura mild-hybrid models. One of those models, the Vue crossover, was destined to spawn an advanced plug-in hybrid variant, and at a recent GM event, it had been teased for sale under the Buick brand. News breaking today reveals that the vehicle is already canceled due to negative public, media and dealer feedback. The...

  • 2010 Chevrolet Camaro V6

    A performance vehicle tuner based in Texas is stirring up some controversy, with claims that the now renowned Nissan GT-R supercar "wasn't running street tires at the 'Ring".

The goal is a lofty one for East Texas Muscle Cars as the Nissan GT-R's current time around the 'Ring is a blistering 7:26.70 - quicker than the considerably more...
