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.)
Jaguar's taken another step into AMG and M territory with the new XFR-S, which promises to take the already-beloved XFR and make it faster, sharper, and even more likely to encourage sketchy behavior and reckless hooniganism. Which means it just might wind up being our new favorite four-door.
