Extra! news update. First, we visit the Bridgestone Proving Grounds where a
class of kids test their 300mpg electric car. Then, it's off to Portland

Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the
Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads
autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or
further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle
which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric
motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on
the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet
drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When
underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to
light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are
supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.

2011 WRX STI Sets Speed Record
At Subaru, the phrase "The Fastest WRX STI Ever" refers to more than just
top speed or maximum engine output. It implies driving with confidence. The
WRX STI can be taken to its "fastest ever" performance by providing the
driver with total driving control with confidence. As a result, the 2011
WRX STI recorded 7'55''00 at the Nürburgring racetrack, Subaru's fastest
lap time ever, which is 4 seconds faster than the previous fastest time
recorded in 2004.
WRX Sti (570 HP, 573 TQ) Tuned by Topspeed
2004 WRX Sti with over 12K in mods. Tuned by Top Speed of Atlanta GA, Dyno run @ 454 HP and 457
TQ. Mods include 850cc injectors, Hi Flow Fuel Pump, Perrin FMIC, methanol
injection, Garrett Tubo (26psi), Perrin Boost controler, full tubo back exahust
(catless), uppipe, downpipe, cold air intake, Perrin blow off valve Cobb
Access Port piggyback ECU and track tuned suspension. This is my third WRX,
I purchased this car with the mods and tune done. I know there is more but
this is all I know. The car ran an 11.2 QM and reaches 60 mph in aprox 3.2
seconds. My 65 year old uncle who has raced cars his whole life and owns
multiple 600+ HP cars one of which is a wheelies Kit car with a blown 454
producing 650 WHP took a ride in this Subie and said after the ride that it
was the fastest car he had ever driven. I am sure he has had a few 10
second cars or even high 9 sec. He said it was the fastest car he had
driven but I doubt it. I would say that it is the fastest 0-100 he had ever
driven. Old dudes have no idea what horse power can do in combination with
AWD. He was blown away. I just got the car last month and have already
raced a new Z06 Vette from a 2nd gear roll and pulled 5 links on him to 145
