    Think of mid-engined supercars and your mind is bound to gravitate towards Europe, but the United States has been known to make a handful from time to time – exceptional vehicles from the likes of Vector, SSC, Mosler, Hennessey, and Saleen. But long before any of those came around, Ford ...

    Video: Porsche 911 Aerodynamic prototype cheated the wind ahead of its time
    1401908280

    You might think that sports cars would have the lowest drag coefficient of all cars. And yes, they do tend to be more slippery than, say, SUVs or convertibles, but the sleekest vehicles on the road tend to be EVs, hybrids and luxury sedans. Sports cars, on the other hand, have aerodynamically ...

    1401366420

    Škoda doesn't sell nearly as many of its Citigo city cars as it does the Octavia, Rapid, Fabia, Yeti or Superb. In fact the Citigo is its second slowest seller, ahead only of the Roomster cargo van. That could be because it only sells the Citigo in Europe, or because, while its other ...
