BMW M6 Cabrio Pictures

Some official photos of the upcoming 2007 BMW M6 Cabrio have been leaked: No word from BMW Australia if the M6 Cabrio would make it down under, but one would assume it would be dependent on demand, and by looking at it, there is bound to be a bit of demand!

2007 Porsche Boxster

The New Boxster and Boxster S are being launched in August in Germany, no definite news as to whether or not the new Boxsters will arrive in Australia on the same date, but I would imagine not. Perhaps a few months later down the track. So what do you get with the new Boxster? Well since its a Porsche the actual look hasn't changed (and it probably never will)...

Audi has set out to prove to the world that Diesel doesn't compromise performance. "Our Audi R10 TDI is a real racing car,you can drive it very precisely, which is a combination of the diesel power and immense torque...

Chrysler PT Cruiser Cabrio (convertible)

Chrysler brought the PT Cruiser to Australia midway through 2000 and with a starting price of $33,000 and the wacky Gangster styling the PT Cruiser proved a definite head turner where ever it went. So 6 years has passed, we still don't have the PT Cruiser Turbo (from Chrysler's Street & Racing Development - SRT unit) but instead we have the new, and somewhat awkward Chrysler PT Cruiser Cabrio - Or as most people would call it, a Convertible PT Cruiser (or Cabriole)...

2006 VolksWagen Jetta Fuel Consumption

I wrote an article about Diesel vs Hybrid cars a few days ago reinforcing my belief that Hybrid and not Diesel is the future of cars. However it seems like the new VolksWagen Jetta Diesel is out to prove me wrong. The new Jetta can manage almost 1200km of highway driving per tank. Given that the tank is only 55L in capacity, that is a truly amazing fact...
