Month: September 2019


Before we get into it, we just want to say we are back. We were away for a little bit because we were stuck in FaceBook and Instagram purgatory (someone flagged our account and the social media companies banned us for a month. Still don’t know why). Glad to be back.

Every time I see a Maserati on the street, I’m in awe of the design and the engine noise, but I feel like I’ve been seeing the same car over and over again for years. Of course, there are slight alterations over time. For the most part, however, Maserati has stuck to their tried-and-true formula. The company is in desperate need of a renaissance, with declining sales slowly chipping away at the company, which was founded in Bologna, Italy all the way back in 1914.

Good news for fans of the company though, as they recently announced their plans coming in the pipeline for the next three years. First things first, the Maserati Alfieri, the beautiful two-seater concept sports car they announced all the way back in 2014 at the Geneva Auto Show, will hit the streets soon. Customers will have the ability to purchase the car in both coupe and roadster forms and will also give you the option of an electric powertrain using with three-motor all-wheel drive and an 800-volt battery system, according to Car and Driver.

Another piece of news coming out of the company is that they will be building another SUV as a successor to the Levante. Production will be at the Cassino plant south of Rome and will start production in 2021. The SUV will also be available with a traditional engine and part electric.

There will be more news coming down the pipeline. While fans are upset that the cars won’t be coming out immediately, it‘s a good consolation price knowing that there is something cooking and it’s not too far off down the road.

The Camaro has been in the collective conscious of many since it was first revealed that that was the name for its competitor the Ford Mustang; it was code-named Panther preciously. That was back in June 28, 1966. Coincidently, almost 53 years to the date, some sources revealed that General Motors was once again thinking about cancelling the Camaro. Back in 2002, production was cut because of declining sales from 1999-2000, but was brought back seven years later in 2009.

Once again, history is repeating itself. With a declining economy and a recession looming, people are too keen on spending $40,000 for a mid-level car with an outdated design and unnecessary and unworthy specifications. Consumers in blogs have noted that they want the car to return to its “pony” status return to the production quality and price point of the Camaro back in 2010.

While there is no confirmation that the Camaro will cease production, it take a couple years to design a car and put it into testing phase. With 2023 a couple years away, it can be a possibly. What are your thoughts? What do you want out the Camaro? Stay tuned to WLTS for more news and info.

An electric 4×4 truck that runs efficiently and effectively is something that has alluded consumers and car companies alike. Bollinger Motors announced its bold plan to tackle that market at an event near Times Square in New York City back in 2017. Fast forward to 2019, the company has revealed the beta prototypes of the two cars in Ferndale, Michigan, which is close to Detroit.

The company has stated that they already have 30,000 people on the wait list, but aren’t under an obligation to make the purchase. The trucks have that boxed look to them, but this time, Bollinger made some trimmings throughout the car to give it a sleeker, more refined look.

According to Car and Driver,

New specs for the B1 and B2 released to coincide with the reveal show only minor changes from what the company has announced before. Payload capacity, for example, is now listed as 5201 pounds, whereas it used to be 5000. Torque numbers are now the same for each vehicle, at 668 lb-ft, even though Bollinger’s earlier specs for the two vehicles were slightly different (688 lb-ft for the B2, 668 for the B1). The trucks go from zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and have a top speed of 100 mph thanks to a dual-motor powertrain that offers a total of 614 horsepower. Off-road utility is met by 15 inches of ground clearance (variable between 10 and 20 inches) and high- and low-range gearing, but the company says the vehicles will be road legal throughout the world. The EVs will have an estimated EPA range rating of 200 miles from a 120.0-kWh battery pack.

Bollinger founder and CEO Robert Bollinger said in a statement that, “I just wanted to build the best truck without compromise.” For the sake of humanity and the increasing warnings of the catastrophe in our ozone layer, let’s hope that these cars take off and set off a chain reaction in the rest of the automotive industry.

There are certain auto shows that seem to captivate us and hold us the palm of their hands when it comes to the latest innovations of the automotive industry. Shows like the New York International Auto Show and the Geneva Auto Show play a big role in showing the advancements being made and also, concept cars that could be gracing our roads in the future.

Hosted by the International Motor Show Germany, or IAA, the Frankfurt Motor Show is one of the biggest, if not, the biggest motor shows in the world. The show is held annually, with passenger vehicles (including some motorcycles) being displayed in odd-numbered years in Frankfurt am Main and commercial vehicles in even-numbered years in Hanover, Germany. This year is an odd-numbered year, so Frankfurt gets the honors.

The first show started in 1897 and just eight cars were on display. Now in 2019, there are dozens and dozens on display, featuring companies such as BMW, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, etc. The show is going on right now at the time of this publication; from September 12, 2019 until September 22, 2019. If you happen to be in Germany around this time for the auto show, please send us pictures. They might even be featured and tagged on our social media forums! Here’s a couple pictures from the event so far. Remember, with a couple days left, there’s plenty more in store.
