2013 Toyota RAV4 giving company high sales ambition

Toyota is quite ambitious about the sales of its freshly unveiled 2013 RAV4. Apparently, they’re serious. They’ve set a target and everything. The Japanese car maker wants to sell a quite impressive 200.000 units of the RAV4 throughout the time on market it will spend next year. Since the projections are of 170.000 customers to […]

Honda also goes cheap with Brio Amaze

For their home market, the Japanese make some incredibly small cars that are very fuel efficient and cheap to run which are called kei cars. Those automotive miniatures can be quite interesting, even if they didn’t really catch on outside the Land of the Rising Sun. Some other examples they do sell outside Japan can […]

At not that long last, the Japanese have come up with the unusually anticipated Honda Civic 2013 facelift version of the car. The 2012 modelyear had a few issues that seem to have been blown out of proportion by the critics. Among the most hated part of it we found the lack of change. Honda […]

Honda approves Civic Type R for this new generation

The Japanese want to, but they don’t seem to have it set up right now. I know they’ve made the Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT86 happen but otherwise there’s not a single remarkable car made over there. Subaru’s Impreza seems a little damp these days, the Mistubishi Lancer Evo is currently out of production and though the […]

Lexus CT200h tuned by Wald International

This is going to be tricky to get down to without considering at least a couple of aspects of history, culture, tradition and humanity. Which is odd, because I plan to talk about a rather boring sort of car, a Lexus. And it’s a hybrid one since it’s the CT200h. As there’s Japanese tuning involved, […]

The Japanese are getting a stripped out version of the car we know as the Toyota GT86. That version is mainly intended for track or customizing use, areas where certain bits aren’t needed anyway.

Honda Civic Type-R confirmed

After announcing the Honda NSX, the Japanese have yet another sporty surprise for the enthusiasts. They’ve just announced the confirmation of a new Civic Type-R. A new Civic Type-R isn’t actually that big a surprise, but given how Honda’s been dropping the ball a little lately, it wouldn’t have been unusual to see them discontinue […]

Mazda MX-5 and RX-8 could get closer

Mazda, just like any other automotive manufacturer from Japan, mostly makes boring cars. Unlike most manufacturers from Japan however, they also make exciting ones as well. I’m talking about the Mazda MX-5 and its bigger, faster brother the RX-8. The first one will live on forever simply because it’s a great entry level roadster offering […]

Nissan introduces Juke Nismo

Despite the recently unveiled Nissan Juke-R being considerably more interesting than the current option the Japanese will be unveiling in Tokyo, it’s not to be ignored. Whereas the recently presented Nissan Juke Nismo lacks the performance of some GT-R underpinnings, performance and crazyness it can stand its ground. In a much more fitting Nismo fashion, […]

2013 Nissan GT-R unveiled

Nissan’s GT-R is a seriously capable bit of machinery and while there’s plenty to thank for this achievement, at the core of the success it’s refinement and technology. That’s exactly what the Japanese have improved upon in coming up with the brand new version, the 2013 Nissan GT-R, the one they’ve recently unveiled. As we’ve […]

Dealers can’t sell 2012 Honda Civic

Out in the U.S. Honda’s Civic didn’t receive too much of an update for 2012 and the mild facelift it got didn’t bring joy to that many customers or attract any new ones to dealers. The Japanese took notice and promised some swift recovery action as they’ve pushed forward the new release date of the […]

R230 Black Bison Edition of Mercedes SL

German cars tend to have restrained exteriors and, depending on how high up the food chain you go, unrestrained performance. Even Mercedes, the least restrained of the lot styles their SL model with fear of turning too many heads as the car moves by. This doesn’t really go well with the Japanese tuners, particularly those […]

Mitsubishi Eclipse rumored to be coming back

After a few years of quieting down, it seemed like fate finally caught up with the Mitsubishi Eclipse and it went out of production, but the story goes on. Probably because of frantic customer complaints, requests or orders, there’s a pretty serious, more and more popular rumor that Mitsubishi plans on bringing it back. Nothing […]

2012 Honda CR-V design leaked

Call me Captain Obvious but I’m starting to think that manufacturers have taken a bit of a liking to previewing their new car courtesy of this unpleasant method. It’s either that or the authorities that manage design patents and such have gotten some seriously passionate people hired recently and they’ve been leaking new cars to […]

Toyota TMG EV P001 became the fastest electric racer

The Japanese at Toyota aren’t very bothered about the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. Instead, they’ve been focusing their time on a different sort of German attraction. It’s the infamous Nurburgring Nordschleife race track and going round it. There’s no Lexus LF-A promotional material here, no fluff and such, it’s all about the racing. Toyota have […]

Lexus rumor says GS could receive a V10 engine

Lexus’ lineup isn’t exactly overfilling with exciting models but it seems that there’s a good chance at that being changed soon as we’ve been hearing from the company’s chief engineer. That would be Mr Yoshihiko Kanamori and his latest statement has all the making of a very exciting vehicle since it could be an actual […]

Lexus change plans regarding LF-A Convertible and seven seater

The Japanese seem to be full of surprises these days. After Mazda launched the 2012 CX-5 ahead of schedule, Lexus gave us another surprise just now. Toyota’s luxury arm decided to delay plans for their seven seater CUV but that doesn’t mean they will be slacking off for a few years to come. In return, […]
