So you own a Porsche and your little boy just wants to be like daddy. Easy, just buy this $900 go-kart and give it to your kid and he will enjoy the ultimate pedal car. Not only will he love you for the rest of his life but chances are you will also “test” drive it for “safety” reasons. We must warn you though, if you are over 110 pounds and 5 feet tall, Porsche will like you to test drive your own big boy toy. [via Porsche]
When you think of hybrid and electric cars, you think of boring and awkward design matched with some not-so-exciting performance figures. The first cars that come to mind are the cheese-wedge shaped Toyota Prius and the eye-sore that is known as the Nissan Leaf. However, it seems like some supercar manufactures are jumping in on the electric and hybrid market with their own creations. Now while these cars may not be considered an 'everyday' option, they are still tapping into fuel-efficient technologies to prove that going green isn't always dull and boring. Many of the supercars listed here are being created for one of two reasons. First, they letting supercar manufacturers put their technologies on display and allow them to study what is possible when the world inevitably heads down the electrified and hybridized future. The other reason is reducing the overall fuel-economy of their full model lineup to help them save money on heavy government fines for producing "standard" gasoline-powered cars that don't meet CO2 emissions or fuel-economy standards. Each one of the supercars listed here is either in development and will be on sale in the near future, or on sale now. (But you probably can't afford them, sadly.)
Ladies and gentlemen,it's time to celebrate. Mazda has finally rid the Mazda3 of its happy face smiling grille and has opted for a more sportier and aggressive design that goes hand-in-hand with its KODO-Soul of Motion design theme (following the CX-5 and the Mazda 6). (more…)
Over the past couple years, some of the world's best luxury and supercar makers have teased us with concepts we wish would see the light of day. Now, we're pretty certain that none of us here at 0-60 will ever be able to afford such expensive pieces of machinery, however, the kid in us wishes these automakers would make our dreams come true and give us a chance of randomly running into one on the road—or driving one on a secret media event.
Check out our list of the top five recent concept cars we'd like to see produced, and then let us know in the comments if we missed any concept cars you'd like to see made real.
