2013 Scion FR-S

Automatic or manual – doesn’t really matter with the 2013 Scion FR-S, which is a sports car that comes with a practical price, rear-wheel drive, and a six-speed transmission. Better yet, it doesn’t look like a Frito Lay truck the way that a certain inStash writer’s parents’ Scion does. Color choices are available in Whiteout (for you minimalists), Hot Lava (for you Texas Longhorn fans), Argento (for you sophisticates), Firestorm (for fans of the Howey Long movie), Ultramarine (for real ‘Mericans), and Asphalt and Raven (for awesome people). The FR-S also boasts 200 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque, which Read More

C-1: THE ROLLING SMARTPHONE

Well, kids, we just moved one step closer to auto-pilot consumer vehicles with the C-1 Rolling Smartphone. Curiosity piqued? It should be. What the C-1 does is this: it stays connected to the world outside and feeds you information about weather, construction, and traffic so you can devise a better way for getting around. The only caveat to this two-wheeler is that there isn’t a heck of a lot of room to put your kids, but who wants them around anyway? All they do is ask how much further and if you’re “there” yet. The Rolling Smartphone is powered by Read More

Acura NSX Concept

The sleek and beautiful Acura NSX Concept promises great things for user control and energy efficiency. As a representative of the well-known car company, it is one of the finest of its kind to incorporate hybrid technology and, unlike most hybrid vehicles, it doesn’t make you want to hide under a moving bus through the simple act of driving it. Through the Acura NSX Concept, Acura is trying its hand at a new form of environmentally conscious vehicle – one that looks as suited to the showroom floor as the highway, and one that is capable of handling some of Read More

Legacy Power Wagon

Have an insatiable affinity for vintage trucks? Do you have a spare 100-grand laying around to plop down on a fully-restored, customized truck from a past era? Read on. The self-proclaimed “Old Dog, New Tricks” Legacy Power Wagons (by Wyoming-based Legacy Classic Trucks) are restored and customized luxury trucks painstakingly handcrafted over 600 hours by the artisan-mechanic genius of Winslow Bent and Erik Johnson. Here, have a quick gander at two examples: The Legacy Power Wagon Woodie Conversion is a 10-passenger, Jeep Wagoneer-esque truck (on mega steroids) conversion that boasts a 360hp-powered 5.9L Dodge Magnum V8 and real mahogany and Read More

2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series

Black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow… Always had a thing for the color combination. It marks the decor of my favorite football team – Go Steelers! – they were the colors used for Rock-O’s trunks in Rocky II and Rocky Balboa, two of the best movies ever – and they make for a striking combination on the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series, which was recently unveiled in the City of Angels by the world-famous car company. Not sure if this’ll be available in other colors, but that doesn’t really matter as much as the 8,000 RPM of Read More

The 2013 SRT Viper

Modernity and classic beauty converge in the new 2013 SRT Viper. This edition of the Viper comes with several changes which enhance the overall driving experience. With a more aggressive racecar look, the Viper maintains the classic ‘gill’ shape as a primary feature on the side. The evolved viper form also features a longer roofline tapering towards the rear with broader shoulders on the fenders. A new V-10 engine producing 640hp awaits your every command. A 12.5 percent reduction in the shift throws and a 3.55 to 1 ratio on the final drive gear have greatly improved the performance.  Better Read More

Mercedes Ener-G-Force Concept

Inspired by the 2012 Los Angeles Design Challenge search for the “Highway Patrol Vehicle 2025,” Mercedes Benz has released the Vision Ener-G-Force concept sport utility patrol vehicle. Small windows help officers within maintain a low profile, rotating beacons on the roof project the strength of police presence in the vicinity, and the striking design combine with the rugged wheels to make this beast high capable on or off the beaten track. In the words of Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Mercedes-Benz Cars, “The Ener-G-Force is the vision of an off-roader that, while reflecting tomorrow’s adventures, also invokes the genes Read More

Aptera 2e Electric Car

China and America working together for a cost effective solution to energy efficiency? What is this world coming to? Hopefully, a very nice thing in the Aptera Electric Car. And not just because of the international spirit of cooperation either. How does 200 miles per gallon sound? It would at least make it more difficult for major unnamed corporations to gouge you at the pump! The Aptera 2e resembles a small aircraft (minus the wings) and reminds us of something Marty McFly might have encountered in Back to the Future Part 2. Chinese corporation Jonway Group, real estate guy Rick Read More
