The Little Subaru That Could!

Ladies and gentleman, it’s official, a Subaru STI has beat an Evo at something! The White Bullet is now the first 4-cylinder 6-speed manual Subaru to break into the 7’s!

This car is no joke, it has previously held the title as the fastest Subaru STI in the world. It was built by the White Bullet Racing team located in Puerto Rico. So what powers this monster?

Well, surprisingly it is powered by a sleeved 2.5L Subaru Boxer engine, making over 1,000 horsepower easily. Nevertheless, it does have a ton of custom work, methanol injection, huge injectors, and one seriously impressive driver. But lets face it, what really makes this thing move? That’s right, A MASSIVE TURBO!

In the end, us car-nuts are very excited and proud to see a dedicated team take home the title of fastest Subaru and first Subaru in the 7’s. There is no hiding the fact that earlier this year Puerto Rico was devastated by a couple massive hurricanes and it is nice to see that nothing can hold them back, especially not their White Bullet Racing team!

Comment below what you car-nuts think of this!

The 2019 Toyota Supra.. What we know

In 2014, Toyota debut the FT-1 concept which everyone seemed to fall in love with. In recent news, Toyota has filed to renew a patent for an old name. What name you ask? Supra! Yes, that’s right the Toyota Supra will continue to live.. at least the name will at this rate. We don’t quite know if what we think is going to be the new Toyota Supra will actually sport the “Supra” badge.

Although it may not be named the “Supra”, Shigeki Tomoyama stated that the car will be a pure sports car. Later adding that the elements such as twin-turbochargers and being rear-wheel drive are what made the previous supra so great. The CEO of Toyota, Akio Toyoda, did say that he is committed to bringing more sporty cars to the market. About time considering The Nissan GT-R has been dominating sports cars and supercars alone. Its time for it to be shut down! Just kidding, but it would be nice to see two 90’s automotive icons back on the streets in modern form.

The “Supra” will share the same platform as the BMW Z4 roadster, which we have seen many spy shots of previously. So, what we do know about the BMW is that it is fairly light, having a curb-weight of roughly 3,200-lbs. This is great news considering the “Supra” will be sharing the same platform and is rumored to be even lighter. Engines may come straight from BMW, and are more than likely going to be a six-cylinder of some sort. The “Supra” will look similar to the FT-1 concept, but more than likely be considerably toned down. Although we hope not!

As far as a release date, it’s hard to tell. Unfortunately, we have been given the run around by Toyota and rumors have been circulating for years now. Each year we expect Toyota to announce the “Supra” and have been let down thus far. However, we will stay optimistic and hope that we will have some more clear answers in 2018.

Rumors that the 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1 will debut this Sunday in Dubai have surfaced. Additionally, the ZR1 will be on the cover of the December issue of Car and Driver, which is now old news following the leak earlier this year. However, there is some excitement as the cover now has a little number on it that was not previously there. That number is the 2019 Corvette ZR1’s horsepower claim. So how much horsepower will this long awaited beast have? 750 horsepower which is 100 horsepower more than the current C7 Z06 claims. Unfortunately, we still don’t know what will be powering the 2019 ZR1, the only thing we do know is that it’s definitely supercharged.
