Hoonigan has been racing the Hoonicorn against all sorts of fast cars. Hoonicorn mops them all up, except an 8.4 second Audi. So the Hoonicorn is probably a high-8s car. Impressive for a car made for drifting sideways.

Lame. Jeep can do 0-60 in 8 seconds.

Oh yes - It's a good-looking vehicle.
We'll go out next week and start looking.

i see some rumors on the Interwebs that Mazda is going to switch to the goodness of a sharp-handling RWD platform. The idea is to step into the niche that BMW abandoned when they went softer and floatier.

This make sense to me - sprinkle a bit of the MX-5's magic dust onto the rest of the lineup.

The Explorer just switched back to RWD, but I don't know anything about good handling. I think there is an ST version.

What does she think of the CX-9?

From armchair research, the AWD CX-9 is attractive: good looks, bit of elbow room, not too massive, reliable. And it's fun... handles well - important on the roads round here.

Wife on the Lexus RX, "That's really ugly."

What about a Volvo? Those seats, man.

Alfa uses the knob for infotainment... Wouldn't want it any other way
Discovery uses a knob to switch gears.  Wouldn't want to get them confused.

I wonder if, one day, they'll leverage in the Starlink infrastructure for the backhaul to the Tesla network, and for in-car consumers' devices. Good low latency bandwidth, 100% coverage, no need for 3rd-party carriers.

Probably all part of the Musk grand plan.  I read or heard Musk say that the electrical products they make will be a part of the Mars business, since ICE can't operate there.
