…and it’s for sale on Facebook for $59,000.

Air suspension has become increasingly popular over the years, and it seems like there is no slowing down. Not only is it mainly used on those draggin’ mini trucks to get that perfected slammed look, air suspension can be found across the board in all automotive categories in custom builds such as restomods, motorcycles, and now, exotics. Of course, car builds were meant to suit each individual car owner and their own particular tastes. But – we must ask – when has it gone too far in your own personal opinion? Would you buy a Ferrari on air bags? This bagged 1991 Ferrari 348 TS is for sale.

Coronavirus slashes UK car output as industry warns of big hit

By Costas Pitas

LONDON, April 30 (Reuters) – The British car industry faces losing output worth more than 8 billion pounds ($10 billion) due to the coronavirus outbreak, which cut production in March by a third, falling to its lowest level since 2009, an industry body said on Thursday.

The sector, Britain’s biggest exporter of goods which employs more than 800,000 people, saw factories and dealerships begin to close from mid March with only some having set reopening dates for May.

Automakers around the world have warned of the scale of the challenge affecting manufacturers already struggling to deal with tougher emissions rules, the hit to diesel sales and the cost of electrification and autonomous technology.

In Britain, volumes fell by an annual 37.6% to 78,767 vehicles in March and the sector, which made 1.3 million cars last year, faces a loss of more than 250,000 cars and vans, the

Revisiting the Toyota Celica’s 50-Year Legacy

Announced at last year’s Daytona 500, Toyota’s decision to bring a four-cylinder variant of the Supra to the U.S. market is good news for anyone who wants more choice in the sports car market. The BMW-based entry-level car gets a 255-hp turbocharged engine and is 200 lbs lighter than the straight-six variant. Underneath, it’s basically a Z4 sDrive30i, which sounds like some sort of inkjet printer. Supra’s a better name. But isn’t a four-cylinder Toyota sports car actually a Celica?

Turning 50 years old in 2020, the humble Celica finds itself briefly touched on in any history of its big brother, then passed right over. There’s a brief mention of the Celica Supra, a long-nosed, six-cylinder GT, then some hurried flipping forward until turbocharging shows up and things get good. That’s a shame, because the history of the Celica is arguably more important, and certainly more interesting, than that of
