The Official SEMA Show After Party, And Everyone's Invited.
Oct 17, 2014 - 7:43 AM - by AutoGuide.com
There's going to be something different about the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year that might be worth planning a trip around. This year, the show's organizers will give people in Sin City a chance to see the show in person regardless of whether or not they are directly affiliated with the automobile industry. SEMA is one of the largest trade shows the city hosts every year, but normally admission is reserved for people who are there on "official" business. Typically, that means its a mostly off-limits mecca for modified car enthusiasts, but that won't be true this year because on Friday, November 7, much of the show will be publicly on display for "SEMA Ignited." From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., cars from the show will pour out of the Las Vegas Convention Center onto the Strip. The show's organizers said they decided to add the event because there have been so many enthusiasts crowding around the exit at the end of the week to watch the cars exiting. Additionally, the "best of show" awards will be given out during a televised presentation as part of the Ignited event. A proud sponsor of SEMA Ignited, AutoGuide will be on hand to capture all the action.

TCAR's Avatar Yup, Lotus F1 is replacing McLaren by using the Mercedes power unit starting in 2015. Are we getting excited now? After an extremely dismal 2014 campaign there is light at the end of the tunnel (not just in Monaco):

2014 Paris Motor Show Coverage
Oct 01, 2014 - 11:38 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Kicking off the auto show season, the Paris Motor Show opens its doors to the public next week, but AutoGuide's team of reporters will get you inside early with three days of coverage from the City of Lights.

And there's a LOT of amazing hardware to see, from the Ferrari 458 Spider A, to a wild new Lamborghini Hybrid. The performance car action doesn't stop there either with the world premiere of the Mercedes AMG GT set to take place, along with a new 500+ horsepower C63 AMG.

Additional German performance comes from the new Audi TT, while rumors suggest a TT sedan will also be unveiled.

A long list of other cars includes the Range Rover Sport, Jaguar XE, Honda Civic Type R, Fiat 500X, Kia Sorento, VW Golf Alltrack and the Toyota C-HR – a sort of Prius crossover.

And one really big surprise is a 550-hp Infiniti Q80 hybrid concept.

Coverage runs October 1st to 3rd and, as always, includes the best auto show video coverage out there.

Lotus Evora to Make US Comeback in 2016
Sep 24, 2014 - 9:48 AM - by AutoGuide.com

Lotus is pulling the Evora from the U.S. market for 2015, but sales won’t be halted forever. In fact, the company plans to be back for 2016.

In the interim, Lotus will continue selling cars to Americans, but they will only be legal for track use. The year-long break in sales is taking place because the Evora doesn’t meet U.S. crash standards, but according to the company it only failed by a small margin. The current Evora was legal to sell here under a one-year exemption that expired in March.

Lotus told Automobile that the new Evora will also have some other changes and that it has already began showing the new car to dealers in this market. The revised car will also be designed to handle the IIHS’ recently implemented small overlap crash test that proved to be troublesome for vehicles in most segments. Unfortunately, Lotus isn’t also planning to update the Exige or Elise to be sold again in the U.S.

Lotus hasn’t said what other changes are in store for the Evora, which is currently powered by a Toyota 3.5-liter V6 making 276 hp in the base car or 345 with the help of a supercharger.

Late last week, the company’s recently-appointed CEO Jean-Marc Gales said the British sports car maker would lay off as much as 27 percent of its staff in an effort to make Lotus a viable business again. In the near term, the company will focus on making better cars within its current roster while offering new variants of those nameplates. Later, the brand is considering a diversified product portfolio that could include a
