2008 Subaru Impreza WRX vs. 2007 Mazdaspeed 3 | Edmunds.com
For Edmunds' Inside Line article: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=121942 Sport compacts have it hard. Cars like the 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX and the 2007 Mazdaspeed 3 - along with competitors like the Honda Civic Si, Mini Cooper S and Volkswagen GTI - are expected to do mutually contradictory things with something approaching perfection. They're supposed to be quick but economical; athletic but comfortable; sporty but practical. Oh yeah, and they can't cost a lot. Go ahead and dream the impossible dream.
Gran Turismo for Sony PSP - Driver vs. PSP Behind The Scenes | Edmunds.com
Video provided by Sony. In May 2004, Gran Turismo 4 Mobile was announced for Sony's PlayStation Portable (PSP) game system. After five years, all who purchased PSPs hoping to enjoy GT anywhere can finally dust them off. Gran Turismo for the PSP hits retail stores in Universal Media Disc (UMD) format for the PSP and the PlayStation Store as a 957MB download on Oct. 1 for $39.99. GT-PSP-Single-Race02.jpg GT for PSP is a solid driving game GT fans will enjoy mainly because of its plethora of cars and tracks, replay value and portability. Those obsessed with all things GT can already tell you the game includes some 800 cars and 35 tracks, most of which are from Gran Turismo 4. Newer post-GT4 cars include the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, Bugatti Veyron 16.4, Citroen Gran Turismo, Audi R8 LMS and more. The driving experience in GT for PSP is what makes the game a delight. There are enough visual and aural cues so you know what your vehicle is doing at all times. Whether the car is pushing/understeering or loose/oversteering, a "feel" of the vehicle's dynamics is properly communicated most of the time. Because the PSP doesn't have the ability to provide force feedback, gaining a feel for the vehicle on off-road tracks is difficult. Still, all-wheel-drive cars like the Subaru Impreza WRX STI and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution emulate lift-throttle oversteer. Their rear-wheel-drive brethren can generate power oversteer that would make Tiff Needell proud. EDMUNDS VIDEO http://www.Edmunds.com is a car-shopping web site driven to make car buying easy.

Mini Coupe Concept @ 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show (IAA)
Mini Coupe Concept @ 2009 FAS (IAA) http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=155786 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oed82OUvlW0 Mini Roadster Concept @ 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjD3VqlkcEQ The 2009 Mini Coupe Concept is a kind of birthday present, as the Mini brand celebrates 50 years since it began on August 26, 1959. And we'll all get to enjoy this present, because it will be presented in public for the first time at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show. At a secret location near Munich, Mini's Design Director Gert Hildebrand tells us about his newest creation. "The idea to do a Mini coupe was born in our design center," he says. "New ideas never come from the board offices; they come from the floor of the design studio. BMW does trend analysis a lot and every three months we talk to Mini representatives from all over the world to discuss the needs of our clients. But we were never asked to do a coupe. We're close followers of blogs and so forth, and we just felt that people would like the idea of a car like this."
