Rumor: Toyota and Suzuki Developing Another Lightweight Sports Car

Toyota and Suzuki are rumored to be collaborating on another lightweight, mid-engine sports car with some help from Daihatsu. While nothing has been confirmed, the model is presumed to be a successor to Toyota’s MR2 (pictured) – as the automaker has offered numerous hints in the past that the little two-seater (or something inspired by it) would eventually enter into production.

2016 McLaren 570S Review - The Entry-Level McLaren, a Bargain at $200,000

After I spent some time with the McLaren 570s, the British supercar company’s entry-level model for North America, I asked Jack Baruth if he thought the 675LT was worth $200,000 dollars more than the 570S.

I’d driven the 675LT around Los Angeles back in January and Jack’s driven both cars as well. The 570S’ performance impressed me, but I wanted the opinion of someone with more experience driving six-figure sports cars than I do.

Jack’s reply was simple: “Yes, it is.”

I don’t have the income to afford either car, but I realized two things upon consideration. The first was Jack was correct: if I had $400,000 to spend on a car, I’d probably go with the 675LT. Though edging into diminishing returns, the differences are noticeable to even a ham-fisted driver such as myself.

The second realization: at around $200,000, the 570S is a bargain.

  • ElSnuggles Shocking that using someone else's resources costs more than your own!Last year I backed into the math on the charging of our two EVs to find that charging them at home costs roughly 20% of the price of gas. Charging my not very efficient Taycan on a public charger runs ~$40 for roughly 2/3s of a tank of "volts" for about 180 miles of range. Turning that into equivalent 'gas' on my prior car, an M5 getting about 13 mpg, is still a pretty good deal if you compare it to the price of premium. I'm sure the equation is much more positively slanted for EVs designed to be efficient rather
