Iconic Cars From The Past That Should Make A Comeback

Car-makers can be a ruthless bunch when it comes culling some of the most beloved vehicles out of their catalogue. A lot of this has to do with the economics rather than car bosses toying with our unhealthy attachment to inanimate objects. Regardless, this still doesn’t make parting ways with an icon any easier. We’re car lovers and if there was ever a chance to play God for a day and resurrect the dead, we’d bring back these eight icons.

Insane Concept Cars That Never Made It Into Production

Think back to the modern era of cars and you’ll recall that there’s not been a year without a concept car to wow the crowds. Whether it’s rolled out from a factory in Italy, England, Japan or America, concept cars have long been the testing bed for cutting-edge technology and design.

Today is a sad day. One of Australia’s big two homegrown car manufacturers, and one of half of the iconic red versus blue battle that has shaped our national consciousness on weekends like this one for decades, is finally shutting up shop.

2017 Ford Focus RS: Australian Review

Even fewer again aren’t purpose-built sports cars and can be bought by normal people with normal car-buying budgets. The Ford Focus RS, based on that humble Focus hatch, is the hottest hot hatch that you can spend your money on, and it’s a masterpiece.

Ford's New Sync3 Supports Android Auto And Apple CarPlay, And It's Out In Australia Now

A few years ago, in a market full of generally mediocre in-car entertainment systems, Ford’s Sync2 did a few things differently. It was entirely touch-driven if you wanted it to be, but it also handled voice commands reasonably well. To its credit, it’s not terrible even now, but it’s definitely long in the tooth. It’s good to see, then, that Ford’s successor — Sync3 — is already appearing in some new cars that you can buy today.

Ford's Big Plans For An Autonomous Ride-Sharing Service

It’s ride-sharing, without the driver. Ford announced its plans today to have a fleet of fully autonomous cars in commercial operation in 2021. And its serious about it.

This Calculator Will Tell You How Much Time And Money You Spend Commuting

I catch a $7 return train to the office everyday. That’s $88,935 spent on getting to work in my lifetime, “enough to buy a 41m2 house in Bali!” Ford’s Commuter Calculator gleefully told me. There is no joy in knowing this information.
