Review: Porsche 718 Cayman GT4, a perfectly irrational middle finger to turbo+DCT  sports cars

The first-generation Porsche Cayman GT4 was one of my favourite cars of all time. In my eyes, it had all the makings of a great driver’s car. Mid-engined balance, Porsche Motorsport genes, and more than enough performance to trouble supercars a league above. More pertinently, 6-SPEED MANUAL. I’ve always wanted to drive one, but never got the chance to. So imagine my elation when I was given the opportunity to have a go in the 2nd-generation, now called the 718 Cayman GT4. Same recipe as the orig

Toyota Corolla Altis creates history by winning Nürburgring 24h's SP3 class

We know the Toyota Corolla Altis is a car Adrian can fall asleep in. It's feels like a giant mattress, and nobody is mistaking it for a racecar anytime soon. Especially one that's tackling the Nürburgring. But Toyota Gazoo Racing Motorsport Thailand (TGRMT) aren't any 'nobody', so they thought that the Altis would make for a good race car. And would you believe it, it actually is! For one, it looks fantastic. All manner of strakes, canards and little aero bits shape air around the car, and it's

SUVs aren't killing sports cars, enthusiasts are

There has been a very prominent narrative in the past decade in the automotive industry. It is one that tells us SUVs are taking over the world, thus making all other forms of cars redundant or out of fashion. Every carmaker, has succumbed to the SUV pressure and made one. You can find calls to stop buying SUVs as it's killing the sports car genre. Well, I'm here to tell you that, SUVs are bad news for some types of cars, namely the traditional 3 box sedan, and wagons.

Review: BMW M340i xDrive, is this the four-door Toyota GR Supra?

Every so often, there are cars that cross our paths and leave an indelible mark in our motoring journey. We have been rather fortunate in the past few weeks, having sampled the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 and now, the BMW M340i xDrive. Not one, but two cars powered by 6-cylinders? Happy days. I used to tell people, don’t bother buying a BMW unless it’s a 6-cylinder (which obviously sounds rather daft now). You see, Munich’s finest cars have, more often than not, possessed of a 6-cylinder heart. Alas,

Only 5 dealers are allowed to sell the RM 299k 2020 Toyota GR Yaris in Malaysia

The 2020 Toyota GR Yaris was launched in Malaysia yesterday evening, at a surprisingly low price of RM 299,000 (Update: RM 286,896 until June 2021). We say low because our local specifications GR Yaris comes equipped with Torsen Limited Slip Differential, BBS alloy wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres, thicker anti-roll bars, and beefier front suspension – all optional extras elsewhere, equal to the UK market’s Circuit Package. Like for like, a GR Yaris with this specification is supposed to be

MT vs DCT vs AT: Why manual transmissions are becoming unicorns

As much as enthusiasts such as myself lament the inevitable demise of manual transmissions (MT), there is simply no business case for manufacturers to continue offering a manual option. Instead, dual-clutch transmissions (DCT) or traditional automatic transmissions (AT) are taking over their place. Admittedly, I have defended manual transmissions since the birth of YouTube comment section, not that I participate in them, it's only mental replies. But no longer am I oblivious to the preferences o

Review: Porsche Taycan 4S - an electrifying, synapse-frying performance car

"Why do petrolheads hate electric cars?" Asked my colleague Shaun as we barrelled along in the Porsche Taycan 4S. I didn't have an answer actually, because up until now, electric cars didn't really do it for me. I have driven a Nissan Leaf before this, and I quite liked it. But did it stir my loins and make me wanna buy one? Not really. But a Porsche Taycan? Who would say no to that? Well, at RM 699,986 (OTR without insurance, 0% SST) as tested, my bank account, most likely. Porsche's first fora

NA vs Turbo: Why they say there’s no replacement for displacement

Car manufacturers have been downsizing their engines for a while now. BMW started using 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engines as opposed to their well-known naturally aspirated (NA) straight-six engines, Volkswagen began using 1.4-litre turbocharged engine to replace their NA 1.6 and 2.0-litre engines, you get the idea. The reasoning behind this is simply to reduce emissions by producing more efficient cars and at the same time, provide the performance of a larger engine. All sounds fine and

Is the Toyota Avanza a Toyota or a Daihatsu?

We all know the Toyota Avanza. The strangely proportioned 7-seater MPV that has the ground clearance of an SUV. While opinions are split between the car’s look, there was no denying that it was a helpful workhorse whether you’re ferrying workers or family around. Those on the elderly side also love the height clearance as it means easier ingress and egress! If you’re a very observant person, you would notice that according to the Avanza’s VIN plate, the car is made in Indonesia by PT. Astra Daih

UMW Toyota akan melancarkan satu model baru pada 17 Disember. Sudah menjadi kebiasaan promo acah pada fasa awalnya, maklumat terperinci belum didedahkan. Tapi, cara dan intonasi iklannya berbunyi agak ‘hip’, ditujukan kepada orang muda dengan gaya. Oleh itu, kita dah boleh jangkakan yang ia barangkali bukannya Toyota Fortuner mahupun Toyota Innova, walaupun kedua-dua model ini sudah patut menerima kemaskini, meniru penambahbaikan yang baru seperti Toyota Hilux yang berkongsi platform IMV.
