New Honda S2000 in 2018?

Honda recently announced that they will be celebrating their 70th anniversary by announcing the next generation S2000. After a well deserved long wait since the last of the previous generation S2000, it’s finally time for fans to get a glimpse of the new S2000. Honda plans to stay true to the sports styling and handling that made the S2000 a staple in convertible sports cars, without going overboard on adding in extra features that are not really necessary to get the true enjoyment of driving. Plans to premiere the new S2000 will be in second half of 2018 and we will definitely have a difficult time waiting that long…

Dirt 4 Announced for June 2017 Release!

In the realm of racing games, the Dirt series is arguably one of the funnest games to play. It offers something different than everyone else since it’s a rally based game instead of a heavy track/road course based gmae like the Gran Turismo or Forza series games. I remember the first time playing a Dirt game on Xbox360 I was skeptical about it but was soon hooked! Can’t wait to play this game this summer! Read the rest of this entry »

Wirelessly Charging an Electric Car

With plenty of hybrid vehicles on the market and the rising popularity of pure electric vehicles, it seems like it is just a matter of time until there are more electric cars than gas cars. But just how long of a wait would that be? Will it be achieved within this century? A company called Evatran hopes that with their wireless electric charging technology they can supply 80% of all the charging stations with wireless function.

The above video is a 6 month review of their wireless charging station that was tested on a Nissan Leaf. The station is installed on to the floor and a device is installed on the car’s battery to receive the power wirelessly when it is parked over the station. But with a steep price tag (currently $2800 and must be installed by certified technicians) is it worth it now for not having to deal with plug-in cables? Maybe not now but hopefully in the future the costs will go down to affordable rates.
