Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT86/Scion FR-S Sports Car



Here's 2 videos of the new Subaru/Toyota/Scion sports car. Subaru gets top billing on this post because the engine in this featherweight little demon is all horizontally-opposed Subaru magic (Porsche is the other manufacturer that regularly puts this type of "boxer" engine in their cars.) We're a little surprised that the Toyota & Subaru versions look identical. The only difference we spot is the little vent on the Subaru's fenders versus a nasty little emblem in the same spot on the Toyota. Toyota plans to market it in the USA as a 2013 Scion FR-S. There are rumors of design tweeks for the Scion version. Initial reviews are that it is a lot of fun to drive.

Marussia B2 Supercar

ExoticSpotter.com dropped this little nugget in our lap today. It's the Marussia B2 supercar designed & built in Russia. Some in the cyberworld have said it is "ugly" and "like a toy from Thailand." We couldn't disagree more. These things look cool as &%#*!! We like the tight cockpit bubble, combination of curves & sharp cut off edges and the CART/F1 racing pedigree. A Lamborghini looks tame by comparison. DriveChannel.com reports that power to weight ratios match Lotus and the Ferrari 458 Italia. Financing from Richard Branson/Virgin can't hurt. Add the Marussia to our "need!" list.

Almost Everything Racing's NASCAR driver Cody Thompson finished his very successful rookie season with two 1st Place finishes, three fast-times, and 11 top-fives in the #68 Almost Everything-Southern Rock car. Cody competes in the hotly contested NASCAR Modified division at All American Speedway. The eighteen-year-old finished fifth in the standings despite missing three races due to engine problems.
