Check Out the Cars of the Future
Mar 18, 2014 - 1:44 PM - by AutoGuide.com
As close to an auto-industry crystal ball as any single page on the internet can be, we've launched a new Future Cars section dedicated to reporting on the latest in what's coming next.

There's an old belief that concept cars never make it to production. On the contrary, they almost always do; they just often change enough over time, evolving significantly from wild design studies to more practical people movers. The new AutoGuide Future Cars pages will let you track the development of your favorite model or keep tabs on what new an exciting cars are coming down the pipe.

From early rumors to spy photos our Future Cars pages will follow the development of highly-anticipated new vehicles until they reach the market sometimes years from now. We aim to give you the straight facts and plenty of enticing rumors on exactly what we do know about these cars, along with photo galleries of concept cars and, of course, video previews of the near-production vehicles before all the hard specs have been confirmed.

Everything You Need to Know About the First Turbocharged Ferrari Engine in Decades
Mar 13, 2014 - 5:23 AM - by AutoGuide.com

The Geneva Motor Show always plays host to a throng of exciting ultra-high-performance automobiles and this year’s installment was no exception. Lamborghini revealed its sultry new Huracán, McLaren unwrapped the alluring 650S and even Pagani’s outlandish Zonda Revolución made a showing. But the folks in Maranello, Italy were not to be out done.

Ferrari’s new California T bowed in the French-speaking Swiss city. This drop-top GT car features a number of significant enhancements over its predecessor. It’s been restyled, gains a new steering box as well as updated magnetorheological dampers that supposedly react 50 percent faster than the units supporting today’s version of the car. But all these reforms are just icing on the cake; the California T’s biggest news is in the engine compartment.

“T” Stands for “Turbo”

The car is powered by a brand-new 3.8-liter V8 that features a duet of exhaust-driven blowers; it’s the first turbocharged Ferrari in literally decades.

This engineering masterpiece delivers a 552 hp stampede along with 523 lb-ft of torque. With a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the California T can sprint from zero to 100 km/h in a claimed 3.6 seconds. But just because this engine is turbo-boosted doesn’t mean it can’t spin freely; redline is a lofty 7,500 rpm. Making a delicious combination even sweeter the car is approximately 15 percent more fuel efficient than its predecessor.
