Chevy Code 130R and Tru 140S Concept Sports Cars at LA Auto Show
I am in love with Chevrolet's two sporty compact concepts the
rear-wheel-drive Code 130R and the front-wheel-drive Tru 140S I saw at the
2012 Los Angeles Auto Show. Rumor has it that both cars might be produces
and aimed at the youth market (and those of us with youthful hearts) that
would be in the low 20s range with the ability to easily personalize them
and tech ready. They were designed at GM's Advanced Design studio in Los
The Tru 140S is a four-passenger hatchback that shares its platform with
the Chevy Cruze and Volt. It also gets the 150-hp Ecotec 1.4, fitted with
stop-start technology and other fuel-saving systems, and is projected to
deliver 40 mpg on the highway.
The Code 130R is a four-passenger hybrid coupe, featuring a turbocharged Ecotec 1.4-liter four-cylinder
direct-injection gasoline engine coupled with General Motors' eAssist
hybrid technology. The engine makes 150 horsepower and 148
pound-feet of torque. Chevy says the driveline can be equipped with either
a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, and is projected to
return 40 miles per gallon in highway driving.
The difference between the two cars is that the Tru 140S is more
contemporary and has performance chrome wheels shod with P245/35R21 tires
and the Code 130R is designed with "heritage" styling cues with P245/40R20

2012 Chevrolet Tru 140S Concept (2012 Detroit Auto Show)
Here's a Concept: Chevrolet Puts Next-Gen Buyers in Charge
Two concept coupes designed to inspire ideas and create discussion
DETROIT -- Chevrolet today introduced two concept coupes at the 2012 North
American International Auto Show aimed at inspiring next-generation buyers
to take the wheel and suggest ideas for a car they can co-create.
"Chevrolet has always stood for making the aspirational attainable for all
generations" said General Motors North America President Mark Reuss. "These
two concepts interpret that vision for a new generation. We're seeking out
our newest customers' opinions, listening to their advice, and engaging
them in new ways."
According to U.S. Census data, there are 80 million American consumers
approaching 30. They represent 40 percent of today's potential car-buying
public and a combined $1 trillion in purchasing power.
Over the past year, Chevrolet has conversed with young consumers across the
United States. Based on their feedback, the Chevrolet concepts explore the
styling and functionality this group of new buyers says they are looking
for in a car.
Code 130R, the first Chevrolet concept, is a four-seat coupe with a simple
upright profile. Painted in an all-new red metallic paint with matte
anodized gold wheels, Code 130R features heritage performance-inspired
styling and rear-wheel drive. With an aggressive front fascia, Chevrolet
fender flares, straight body side and Chevy crossflag emblem, Code 130R
makes a link to Chevrolet's performance heritage.
Code 130R's designers conceived the turbocharged engine to be tuned to work in tandem
with eAssist technology. By shutting off the engine at stops, recapturing
braking energy, and smoothing torque during acceleration, this concept
takes automotive electrification to the next level and balances turbocharged performance with fuel economy.
Tru 140S, the second Chevrolet concept is a front-wheel-drive, "affordable
exotic" four-seat sporty coupe. The three-door hatchback was designed to be
an attractive-yet-affordable sports car. Shown in an all-new matte white
with Chevy performance chrome wheels featuring crossflag emblems, Tru 140S
is designed to look confident, exotic, expensive and fast. Tru 140S is
based off the same platform as the Chevrolet Cruze and the groundbreaking
Chevrolet Volt electric vehicle with extended range.
Tru 140S designers want to demonstrate technologies typically found in more
expensive cars, including direct injection and a starter-based stop-start
technology, balancing internal combustion and electrification to deliver
high value and improved fuel economy.

2013 Nissan GT-R (2011 Los Angeles Auto Show)
2013 NISSAN GT-R GAINS 15 horsepower TO 545 HP TOTAL
-- Nissan's Multi-Dimensional Supercar Receives Engine and Suspension
Refinements for New Model Year; Set to Arrive at Select Certified Nissan
Dealers Nationwide in January 2012 --
Since its introduction, the iconic Nissan GT-R has had one goal in mind --
never rest on its laurels. One of the most acclaimed supercars in
automotive history, the Nissan GT-R is the ultimate expression of the
Nissan brand and its "Innovation for All" philosophy. A multi-dimensional
performance machine that lives up to the concept of "the ultimate supercar
that can be driven by anyone, anytime, anywhere," the Nissan GT-R receives
a number of engine and suspension refinements for the 2013 model year, all
designed to enhance its already legendary performance.
"The 2013 Nissan GT-R once again sends a bold statement that it remains on
the leading edge of international sports car design, technology and
performance," said Brian Carolin, senior vice president, Sales and
Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc. "It's our desire to keep pushing the
envelope, to never settle for second best or second place -- a philosophy
that makes Nissan GT-R one of the most coveted and affordable supercars in
the world today."
The major refinements to GT-R's renowned engineering masterpiece of an
engine include improved intake efficiency, reduced airflow resistance
including an enlarged air intake duct for the Intercooler, and improved Exhaust emissions efficiency and enhanced
control. The engine is hand-assembled in a special clean room, similar to
racing powerplant construction. As a result, horsepower is rated at 545
hp, an increase of 15 hp over the 2012 GT-R's 530 hp. Similarly, torque has
been increased to 463 lb-ft from 448 lb-ft.
Transmission shift feel and quietness have been refined through a
strengthened design of the shift fork arm and a firmer fixing bearing for
the flywheel housing. Also, high performance differential oil, used in GT-R
motorsports competition, is now standard for production models.
In addition, the suspension has been retuned and a handmade dry carbon rear
spoiler has also been added to the Nissan GT-R Black Edition model. Other
enhancements include the addition of a new blue lighting treatment inside
the tachometer ring to match the shift position indicator light, helping
provide a more sophisticated cockpit atmosphere. A RearView Monitor is now
standard on all models.
The 2013 Nissan GT-R is scheduled to go on sale at select certified Nissan
dealers in January 2012.
