A year ago we were out in California to drive the all-new Toyota Prius. Now we are back in California to drive the first riff on the Prius, and that is the Plug-In version they are calling the Prime.

That’s what we find out on this episode of Rumblestrip.NET and Ten Minute Test Drive.
Well kids, the time has come to move on from the Mustang. This has been a fun, at times, project, and I’ve done most of what I set out to accomplish with it. Sure there are a few things it has yet to do under my ownership, first and foremost being a pass in anger down the dragstrip.

The fact that the new Porsche Boxster and Cayman are arriving with turbo flat fours and no longer naturally aspirated flat sixes has caused a bit of an outrage with the Chairborne Warriors and Blood Purity Tests fanatics. Their outrage comes not from having driven the vehicles, but from a look at press releases, and spec sheets.
That Porsche have run turbocharged race cars since the 1970’s, that Porsche dare put a turbo on a 911 in the mid 70’s, that Porsche had an inline four cylinder front engine car, then a V8 powered front engine car that offered, wait for the earth to stop spinning, an automatic transmission, and all this long before they decided to print money by building an SUV.,
We always look forward to weeks when Audi’s come in for review, by and large they are among the best in their class.
