286-horsepower Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR Debut

Now, we know that TCR, or Touring Car Racing, vehicles are not exactly practical for everyday driving experiences. Do you really need your vehicle to reach an unrestricted speed of 164 miles per hour? No, probably not. On the other hand, that doesn’t stop you from wanting a vehicle with that capability. Well, it could soon be coming out. Volkswagen unveiled some appealing design sketches of a Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR, a 286-horsepower version of the vehicle that is set to debut at Wörthersee.

VW Making A Golf Hybrid

48-V Mild Hybrid Volkswagen Golf Model

Most shoppers looking for an efficient alternative to gasoline models probably aren’t even aware that Volkswagen has a purely electric vehicle. That’s because the e-Golf isn’t available nationally, but is available exclusively in select states. It’s not difficult to see why, as charging stations are still a bit slow to pop up across the country and driving range is only starting to reach a practical point for everyday needs. A perfect balance of efficiency and range can still be found in hybrid models, but VW has stayed out of the game for far too long. It sounds like this is about to change with the announcement of a 48-V Milk Hybrid Volkswagen Golf model. As a best-seller globally, it only makes sense that the Golf should be the first to go hybrid. Read the rest of this entry »

2018 Mother’s Day Brunches Austin TX

Though in the grand scheme of things, the 18 years of our upbringing might seem like a relatively short time. Any parent knows that raising your kids doesn’t end there, but it’s this solid foundation that prepared all of us for the trials of adulthood. There’s one special woman who was there through it all, and there’s one time of year dedicated to doing it. Mother’s Day lands on May 13th this year, so these are the places to go for brunches during the 2018 holiday in Austin TX. Read the rest of this entry »

Though there have been long strides forward in the development of electric cars, we still tend to get the same imagery in mind when thinking about the future. If you’re like most, you probably imagine the looks of the original Nissan Leaf mixed with the too-quite sound that comes out as an uninspired whine at best. Basically, it’s hard to expect either performance or looks from these models. Volkswagen is clearly out to change your mind at the 2018 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb as the brand will be flaunting the new I.D. R race car. Read the rest of this entry »
