From the BMW 8 Series to the Toyota Supra, it seems every old name is making a comeback. Even relatively new ones too. Or if the recent news of Honda trademarking the CR-Z name is anything to go by.Calm down now. As we have pointed out previously, companies do trademarks simply to ensure nobody else uses the name. There is little evidence to support the claim many sites are banging out that a second-generation CR-Z is imminent.However, the news does warrant a little introspection to ask the impo

Honda CR-Z trademarked, but maybe you shouldn’t get too excited

If you’ve been following recent news, you would have noticed that there are numerous reports of Honda trademarking its iconic CR-Z nameplate.That has since snowballed into outlets speculating that Honda could be reintroducing its sporty little hybrid, but is it really the case?We reckon that the CR-Z may not return so soon, due to the following reasons.Car companies tend to trademark names to prevent other companies from using it. It does not really mean that Honda will adopt the CR-Z

Mengapa?Syarikat kereta cenderung membuat nama dagang untuk mengelakkan syarikat lain daripada menggunakannya. Ini tidak ber

The Nissan Z Proto is a better design of the Nissan Z concept car from 1999

The Nissan Z Proto is a perfect mixture of past Z cars (or as Chief Designer at Nissan, Alfonso Albaisa called it, memories) and the future of Nissan. Some people might say it is merely an evolution of the 370Z but clearly, there is more to that.In fact, it is probably a better reworking of what Nissan had done a little over 20 years ago with a Z concept also known as the 240Z Concept.Things weren’t doing so well financially for Nissan in the late nineties.
