Subiefest 2010: Subaru Fun in California

A time attack, a car show, and Scoobies for Boobies all equal good times.

The Backwards Burnout: Oct. 18-22

A look back at the big stories of the week.

Welcome to the Backwards Burnout, 0-60mag.com’s weekly series where we look back at the stories you really should have read the first time around. Even if you’ve been checking in on our site pretty regularly, see if you missed any of these pieces when they were fresh off the keyboard.

Porsche Wants To Be Your Hybrid Sports Car Source

Our friends at Porsche have some big plans for their lineup. In order to comply with increasingly strict emissions regulations, the car maker wants to add hybrid tech to every model in the range. It's really not as big of a leap as you might think at first—they already make hybrid Cayennes and Panameras, the 911 GT3 R Hybrid gives us a very preliminary idea of how a 911 might enjoy gas-electric technology, and the Boxster has two trunks, giving it plenty of room for battery packs. The company is also considering four-cylinder engines for their future cars...which somehow seems scarier to us, even though we're not sure why...

Viper-Engined 300 Is One Man's Labor of Love

When a video popped up on Monday morning showing a Viper V10-powered Chrysler 300 wearing some official-looking badges, we were hoping it was a preview of an end-of-production super sedan Chrysler was going to unleash on the world in the 300's final years. Turns out it was actually a home-built project by Mr. David Ekins, who pulled the drivetrain from a wrecked Viper and almost single-handedly installed it in his 300 in order to build a family sedan with balls. Turns out that's even cooler than a M5-fighter from Chrysler.

Germans Create Car That Comes When Called

After playing with cars for more than a century, the Germans have finally found a way to make them compatible with Oktoberfest's massive crowds and heavy drinking. German scientists announced they've developed a system for cars that allows the driver to call his vehicle to him; he presses a button on his phone or GPS-enabled computer, and the car pinpoints him on a map and drives itself to him, taking care to obey traffic laws along the way. The driver can even remotely drive the car through his phone, making all those hours of Grand Theft Auto on your iPhone suddenly seem worthwhile.

But wait, there’s more! Be sure to also check out:

Friday Feature: The Bourne Identity

A great car clip to start your weekend right.

Small Child Tastes Adrenaline Courtesy of Tesla

Speed, fear and electrons are a heady cocktail for a boy.

We at 0-60 all grew up before the days of electric cars that could run from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds, so we'll never know exactly what it feels like to be a little boy who suddenly finds himself pinned to the seat of a Tesla Roadster for the first time. (more…)
