Report: Next-gen Scion FR-S could use Mazda Miata MX-5 platform

Some news is floating in about the next generation Scion FR-S, which Australia’s Motoring says could use the new Mazda Miata MX-5’s platform as a starting point.

This seems possible since the Scion/Subaru/Toyota trio don’t seem to be selling as well as the brands anticipated. They want to keep the car around, but could use the Miata platform to cut corners instead of making their own. And that’s ok since the Miata platform is a great place to start.

Not much is known, but the lightweight Miata is basically synonymous to the Scion/Subaru/Toyota trio in that both are front-engined, rear-wheel drive, with a standard limited-slip diff, low weight, and minimal approach.

And ultimately, both are for absolute pure driving fun.

McLaren announces new plans for entry-level Sports Series at Goodwood

McLaren seized the moment at Goodwood this year to announce the launch of their new Sports Series lineup, or a line of cars that take the role of being McLaren’s entry-level line of cars.

All the cars designated to populate the line are expected to be revealed over the course of the next two years, with one confirmed already to be introduced in 2016. The next one after that will be in 2017.

McLaren obviously kept their cards close, but speculation points to versions of the 570S Spider and the 570S Gran Turismo.

Check out their brief press blast after the jump.

If you don’t quite understand it, Alfa Romeos have their own special reputation for being all things that soulful motoring should be. Like Italian culture, Italian food, Italian people, and so-on, you can tell their cars are just as much Italian as everything else, filled with soul, excitement, and joie de vivre, not by the way they’re styled, but also the way they’re built and the way they drive.

This starts with the audible soundtrack that the car makes–and Alfas always made great sounds.

Click here for our original post on the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

That’s why we’re bringing you a short video promo snippet supplied by Alfa Romeo, regarding the new Giulia. Because like them, we want you to know what the new Giulia sounds like. Needless to say, we had to have a few changes of pants.

Spy Shots: The next-gen Cadillac SRX replacement spied on the street

Jalopnik reader apparently spotted the next-generation Cadillac SRX in the streets of New York, which totally makes sense given that Cadillac’s been relocating to New York.

The new SRX successor is called the XT5 and judging by its spy photos, it gets new sheetmetal all around, but it doesn’t look to be much of a departure from the old model. That’s a little disappointing.

Either way, the new XT5 takes on a range of changes including a more pronounced grille, edgier lines, and headlight and taillight designs that also reflect Cadillac’s other current models and future concepts.

Not much else is known about the XT5, but we reckon GM’s popular 3.6L V6 will sit under the hood, much like the outgoing model.

Nissan did the unexpected with their original Juke-R, an extremely limited production and special edition of the Juke, which sports the Nissan GT-R’s powertrain and drivetrain, complete with all-wheel drive and the hand-built 3.8L twin-turbocharged V6.

Now, Nissan revealed a follow-up to the crazy Juke-R with the Juke-R 2.0, but it literally does not have a 2.0L motor. It does still have the hand-build twin-turbo V6, but it’s been massaged to produce over 600hp, making it the same motor as the GT-R Nismo.

Other tweaks include visual changes and upgrades to the exterior and lighting, as well as body parts remolded in carbon fiber form to reduce weight. We don’t know how much faster the Juke-R 2.0 is since Nissan didn’t say, but the current Juke-R is already batshit-insane fast with a 0-6o time of just three seconds.

Ford boasts their new worldly Focus RS comes packed with 345hp w/ video

Some of the biggest news to come from Dearborn was the introduction of the all-new worldly Focus RS, that’s finally being sent to US shores to join our hot-hatch wars.

But one thing Ford failed to disclose at the reveal of the Focus RS was its power ratings. The last Focus RS had 301hp and 325lb-ft of twist from a lovely, Volvo-sourced turbocharged straight-five. That is however less than Ford’s latest 2.3L EcoBoost four-, which is not only the same motor as found in the Mustang EcoBoost, it’s the same motor providing propulsion to the Focus RS.

Except in the Focus RS, it produces more than the Mustang’s 310hp at 345hp. That’s also backed by 324 lb-ft of twist, which is four more pound-feet than the Mustang’s version.

This all happens thanks to a revised turbocharger, intake, and exhaust, and a heavier duty radiator. Driving Ford Performance’s latest all-wheel drive system with dynamic torque vectoring, launch control, and even a crazy Drift Mode, the Focus RS seems to be a force not to be reckoned with.

Check out Ford UK’s press release as well as some moving footage of the RS in action at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed after the jump.

Report: Stanford University reveals new method of extracting hydrogen from water w/ video

Because the automobile industry is under constant pressure to find a way to better propel cars in a manner that’s less damaging to the environment, scientists and engineers outside the auto industry are looking for ways to improve infrastructure to support new technologies, such as electric vehicles and hydrogen-powered vehicles.

Speaking of which, with everyone realizing the practical limitations of EVs, automakers are either sticking to classic internal-combustion power, or a new future in hydrogen fuel-cells. Hydrogen power has always been viewed as the mecca of renewable energy since the combustion of hydrogen–the most abundant element in the universe–means the addition of oxygen molecules, and the byproduct of adding oxygen to hydrogen in the phase of combustion is water, much in the same way that the act of combustion by adding oxygen to petrochemicals yields carbon dioxide and a range of other toxic substances.

That said, because the yielding result of combusting hydrogen is water, and that hydrogen is super abundant, it seems like an ideal candidate for a renewable, natural fuel. There is one major hurdle however–hydrogen production is extremely expensive to the point where its ends don’t justify the means, cost wise. But thanks to more and more research, the technology appears to be coming more readily available, and thus cheaper.

Over the years, one of the many questions consistently raised at BMW was whether or not they’d change their mind about making an M-based 7-Series. And for as long as the 7-Series has been around, the answer to that question was that BMW believed the 7-Series’ position as a full-size luxury sedan didn’t match with BMW M’s ideology of lightweight, nimble, and fast sports cars dressed in unassuming bodies.

Click here for our original post on the 2016 BMW 7-Series and more news on the 7-Series here.

So for the turn of every generation, the prospect of an M-ified 7-Series was a resounding no, even with stiff competition from the likes of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class AMG, the Maserati Quattroporte, the Jaguar XJR, and the Audi S8.

Report: Lotus gets serious about growing in the US–to move HQ to Detroit area

Lotus is currently hard at work in their attempts to bring more life to their operations by expanding their lineup. Exemplifying this even more is a recent report from AutoGuide, which says Lotus Cars USA Inc. will be relocating their central operations to the Detroit area as part of its restructuring plan.

Lotus for the US currently resides in Lawrenceville, Georgia and the location for their new base of operations is in Ann Arbor, Michigan. That also happens to be the home of revered magazines, CARandDRIVER, and Road&Track. 

“North America, as the largest sports car market in the world, is important for Lotus, both for model sales and for our engineering consultancy business,” said Jean-Marc Gales, Lotus’s current CEO. “By having both of our USA organisations located in Michigan, we shall be within the heartland of the USA automotive sector, where the headquarters of some of the most important, influential and significant automotive manufacturers and suppliers are based.”

In the same breath, Lotus will be rolling out some new models following the latest Evora 400, the fastest and quickest Lotus ever. Deliveries are set to begin later this year.

The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze also goes on a diet, gets a handsome exterior

  • The 2016 Cruze (clockwise from lower right) joins Malibu, Camaro, Spark and Volt as the fifth all-new vehicle Chevrolet has revealed in 2015. These vehicles feature engaging performance, design that makes the heartbeat, passive and active safety features and easy-to-use technology, all at a value. (Chevrolet Photo)

  • The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze – a larger, lighter, more efficient and more sophisticated evolution of the brand’s best-selling global car.
  • The new Cruze is 2.7 inches (68 mm) longer and nearly an inch (25 mm) shorter in height than the current model, giving it a longer and leaner appearance. A faster windshield rake and a faster-sloping rear profile lend a sportier look to the design, while the rear profile culminates in a standard integral rear spoiler that contributes to the car’s aero efficiency.

  • Like the exterior, the Cruze’s interior – and the instrument panel in particular – features lean, muscular and layered surfaces built around the Chevrolet-signature dual-cockpit theme.
  • With greater spaciousness and technology, the 2016 Cruze’s interior is designed to be more comfortable and a better connected environment for the driver and passengers.
  • The 2016 Cruze offers more rear legroom (36.1 inches / 917 mm) and two inches (51 mm) more rear knee room and more spaciousness.
  • Packed with new technologies such as available Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and new active safety features, as well as a more spacious interior and an athletic, aerodynamically optimized design, the 2016 Cruze elevates the compact car segment.

Chevrolet seems to be having a field day this week with reveals, after revealing the new Camaro Convertible not too long ago. We say this because they just pulled the virtual sheets off of the all-new 2016 Cruze as well. And like the Camaro before it, the Cruze gets some serious solid looks goin’.

The outgoing Cruze wasn’t a terrible car to look at, but it was far from being memorable. In other words, it was just purely bland, and its design screamed–I’m styled only to sell in the largest numbers possible.

The new 2016 Cruze is the polar opposite, with a much more curvaceous look that’s modeled after the recent Malibu makeover. All-in-all, it’s a very attractive compact sedan. With the all-new looks comes an all-new standard 1.4L Ecotec turbocharged four with direct-injection, which Chevy says should provide up to 40 mph highway. Stop/start is standard, unfortunately.
