Sweet Sixteen

Gears&Beers Podcast published on

It's absolute insainity this week, very little coherence to be found here! However, if you came to us for anything other than drunken sillyness, that's really your problem!

This week the news is electric! We discuss Toyota, Mazda and Denso's partnership to standardise electric vehicles. Dyson (yes, the vacuum company) is working on an electric vehicle due for release in 2020, and rumours have it that it may not be a "traditional" vehicle. Polestar's close partnership with swedish car brand Volvo ends, but they'll still be offering performance parts for Volvo vehicles through Volvo dealerships. We talk about Subaru's limited and special edition Japan-only WRX STI S208. Fiat has a fancy limited edition Alfa 4C-engined 500, and Porsche smash the Nurburgring record for a road-legal production vehicle with their 2018 911 GT2 RS lovingly known as 'The Widowmaker'; beating the Lamborghini Huracan Performante by almost 5 seconds, and Porsche's own 918 Spyder by almost 10.

We also throwback to 'What about this car', and 'Word Associciation', as well as our trademark tangets.
