this is quite simply just a beautiful set of photographs done by Bence Bakonyi in Shanghai, China. Lovely contrast and just a lovely idea.
Over the past several months, i’ve really started loving these NSU Prinz/TT/TT-S models. I have seen a couple of these in the past in person and always get the feeling that these cars must be an absolute BLAST to drive around in. Lightweight, rear-engined, tossable, stiff, and epic 60s cool. These are so rare in the US, however they enjoy an enthusiastic following in Germany. I would love to have a go in one…
Thanks to Marco for sending me these pics, and you can see the full album of photos from this AutoX NSU event HERE
These photos may be digitally altered/edited, but it doesn’t matter as they’re pretty damn cool. I’m digging the minimalist stone background. “Leda and the Swan”, as described:
“A modern reinterpretation of the Greek myth, the images capture a woman in an Escada wedding dress and a white vintage Porsche 928, photographed by Alex Rank within digital sets designed by adNAU’s Tino Schaedler.”
the BMW 1M is a cool car, even though lately i’ve found myself not liking it as much as I thought i would—-maybe it’s the endless hype surrounding it, maybe it’s because i think the TT-RS is even cooler—-but there is one thing we can all agree on: the owner of THIS 1M should be dragged into the streets and interrogated for bad taste!

My favourite current concept car——i am full hope that this badboy gets produced. If it does, you bet every dollar I will be selling parts of my spleen to get myself one—-in BLACK thank you very much!

Not mine, of course….but a friend of mine and a previous (multiple) TT owner has taken delivery of his brand new white Porsche Boxster Spyder. Pretty aggressive looking car, with some very interesting design cues pertaining to the roof. The interior looks fantastic. These are the first ‘real world’ pics of this car i’ve seen, and it looks much better than the official pics that were released! Must be a helluvalot of fun to throw around turns!
Thanks to Quattive for letting me post pics of his car.

Amidst the soap opera of what has become SAAB, The SAAB-Spyker deal seems to be building confidence in its conclusion. The latest positive sign seems to be that after over a year of US market dormancy, the SAAB 9-3X has been added to US dealer order lists! It will be months til customers get their orders filled, and maybe this is a way for the company to gauge interest in products after all the hooplah….but it seems that the 9-3X would nicely fill the gap that the Audi Allroad’s absence in the US market has created; an upscale, european wagon with AWD.
To all those people who have been rooting for SAAB to be rescued, this is your time to walk the walk and place your order for a pretty cool AWD wagon. Good decision SAAB, now back up all this talk with some kick ass new products, and success will be yours!!
