We've never been fond of blatantly pimping the sites of our colleagues, but if (like us) you've been jonesing for tech-rich features and import performance stories after the unfortunate demise of Sport Compact Car and Turbo, MotoIQ has stepped up to fill the void.

Headed up by Mike Kojima and featuring the insightful scribblings of Eric Hsu, Sarah Forst and Dave Coleman, MotoIQ's first few months of publication have erred on the Nissan-centric side. But recently they've added both a Subaru WRX STI and Mitsubishi Evolution X to their stable of project cars, along with documented the progress of their Scion tC Speed World Challenge racer and work on a Honda motorcycle.

Thanks to Kojima, it's overly geeky (which we like) and Coleman's return to the world of writing has provided plenty of laughs around Autoblog HQ. If sport compact performance is your thing, it's worth checking out. We wouldn't lead you astray, would we?
