Since the early cave paintings tens of thousands of years to the bathroom stall at our favorite bar, humans probably male genitalia has been written about flat since, as a species, learn to draw. While science has allowed us to do many things, perhaps our best moment came recently when NASA inadvertently drew a penis – caught in the picture above – the surface of Mars. Checkmate all of you graffiti artists out there.
While this may seem like a funny trick invented by guys from Top Gear or even nerds Big Bang Theory, this is actually the result of Mars Rovers Spirit and Opportunity, leaving tire marks on the surface of Mars. Although the design is considered accidental, I imagine that some of the smartest people on the planet operate the team still has an amazing sense of humor.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Honda CEO Takanobu Ito believes the nascent car in China buying demographic, not everyone who is interested in hybridbiler-at least not yet. The history feature to not release them and certainly not to purchase bigger prize such models usually carry. What they really want, said Ito, is reliable, low-cost cars to suit your needs. When it comes to Honda’s sales, the numbers seem to jibe with your thoughts: Honda sold 598,577 vehicles in China last year through its two joint ventures, but only 84 of them were non-hybrids up to a tenth of a percent. However, sold Toyota cars 840,500 in China last year and two percent of that total, 17,300 units, were hybrids, which is closer still piddling relation of three percent as Toyota sales published in the United S[......]
The little machine you see above is the Kia Cub. The first Cub debuted at the Seoul Motor Show, but this is the first time I had the opportunity to see it in person, so they pointed the camera lens his way and started clicking.
According to our men in the exhibition hall, the Cub concept is “very good looking” a squat and funky way that seems mostly ready for production. Format of a five-door hatchback, with reverse opening doors (call them suicide doors called resist … screams …), this team does not seem to share more DNA with the current design of Kia products. And that’s good. As much as we like swoopy line of Kia cars and utes, a little shake from time to time does not hurt.
We are confident that the diminutive hatchback would be a fun car to drive, with 204 horsepo[......]
The 2014 Toyota 4Runner seems to be increasingly a style that is so unusual for Toyota as the place where it will be his debut. Premiere on April 27, 2013, the Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio, CA, 2014 4Runner seems to be getting more of a project in-your-face. Toyota says this is the first time he has revealed a new product in a music festival.
While we only see two images of the updated 2014 4Runner, new headlights to break the rectangular shape in the current model this in a cut nerve. Below the headlamps are vertical air intakes – that looks very similar to the 2014 Subaru Forester XT – but it is unclear if all models have these trim levels or just special. The other image was Toyota launched the smoked LED taillight.
As a sponsor of the music festival, Toyota SUV driver will[......]

Durante o ano passado, nós tivemos a chance de dirigir dois dos hatchbacks mais emocionantes na família BMW – o BMW M135i eo Mini Paceman John Cooper Works -, mas Autocar conseguiu fazer com que os dois primos corporativos juntos por um cabeça-comparação de-cabeça. Assim como nossas impressões iniciais do Paceman JCW, Autocar tem pouco a reclamar sobre este novo hatchback 215 cavalos de potência … até que comece a levar em consideração o M135i mais rápido, melhor educado e mesma faixa de preço.
Apesar que estabelece um extra de 100 cv e entregar um tempo de 0-60 que é quase dois segundos mais rápido, o M135i tem o mesmo preço de £ 29.535 no Reino Unido, os preços dos EUA para o Paceman começa em 36200 dólares, enquanto ele ainda não é ainda claro se os EUA vão estar recebendo o M135i.[......]
Car and Driver has an update on the project in Ingolstadt confusion that will eventually bring greater product differentiation Audi.

The latest actions are focused on passenger cars with Volkswagen Group designers relatives as Bentley and movable seat for Audi, Alfa Romeo and outside move in.
While Egger declared the end of “scalable design” on a CD, the November report last year said there would be more technology and “visual cohesion” between the interior and exterior design. I still have no idea what that means, or when we see visible[......]
Volkswagen still has his sights set on becoming a global automaker, higher in 2018, and to get there, is apparently going to need more troops on the ground. Automotive News Europe reports that VW is looking to increase its workforce by 50,000 over the next five years – an increase of nine percent – which does not include an increase in its U.S. dealer network.
According to the report, most of the growth will come from China, where the automaker is also looking to double its production capacity in the same period of time.

A new report on the website of Club Lexus claims to have insider knowledge about a return to Formula One with Toyota, this time under the auspices of the Lexus brand. Toyota raced in Formula 1 from 2002 through the 2009 season.
