Is there life after oversteer?
by Aaron Gold

"Tail happy." It is one of the happiest phrases in the auto writer's lexicon and one of the traits we value most in a sports car. "Tail happy" refers to a car biased towards gentle oversteer, in other words it’s a car that will allow the back end of the car to fishtail when taken to its limits of traction.

Being tail happy isn't necessarily a good thing. Take the old air-cooled Porsche 911, which would snap into sudden and severe oversteer if the driver lifted off the gas too suddenly in a turn (lifting shifts weight forward and lightens the rear end). And there were several rear-engine death traps sold in Europe that would spin out if you so much as looked at them the wrong way.

But a car that makes a gentle transition to oversteer, which can be easily corrected with steering and throttle – giving it just enough power to shift some weight onto the rear wheels, but not enough to break them loose – a car

Toyota delay could have domino effect
Jul 29, 2014 - 10:58 AM - by {got-rice}
http://www.autonews.com/article/2014...-domino-effect

Quote:
Delays in the development of the Toyota New Global Architecture platform may mean several products in the Toyota pipeline could be delayed by as much as six months.

Already, the Prius, the lead vehicle for the platform, has had its launch shunted from April to December 2015 because of engineering delays. But the TNGA also will underpin key future vehicles such as the Camry, Corolla, RAV4 and Avalon. That could push their launches back as well. Toyota has had no problem extending product cycles in the past.

The TNGA modular approach aims to boost the number of parts shared among vehicles to improve quality and lower costs. But sources say that some modules, especially ones involving vehicle dynamics, are proving harder to share than expected among vehicles with vastly different missions.

Scion's entry-level reload means big changes
Jul 29, 2014 - 1:51 AM - by {got-rice}
http://www.autonews.com/article/2014...ns-big-changes
Quote:
After a year of studying the possibility of turning Scion into a near-luxury brand that would slot underneath Lexus and compete against the German entry-luxury products, Toyota has decided to keep it as a starter brand with a product lineup tailored to young shoppers.

That lineup won't be exclusively cheap -- the $25,000-plus FR-S coupe will stay another generation, executives say -- but the emphasis will be on first-time new-car buyers.

With the xB and xD heading well into the seventh year of their cycles, expect big lineup changes starting early next year. Also, expect new nomenclature, as Toyota has filed trademark applications for iA, iD, iM, tD, tK, tR, tS and tZ. That doesn't necessarily mean the lineup will expand to eight vehicles, because Toyota often over-files its trademark apps.

Here is what to expect from the Scion camp in the near term.

xB: Scion's signature box car will go away in spring 2015 when it is replaced by a version of

2015 Toyota Yaris Refresh Revealed
Jul 23, 2014 - 1:26 PM - by {AutoGuide.com}


Quote:
Toyota has pulled the wraps off the 2015 Yaris, revealing new style both inside and out along with a small price increase.

Still available as a 3- or 5-door model, the Yaris stays mechanically the same as the 2014 model, with power coming from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 106 hp and 103 lb-ft of torque, sent through either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic.

A retuned suspension setup along with a more rigid body structure should help the Yaris handle better according to Toyota, while extra sound insulation and aerodynamic tweaks will help to quiet things down in the small car.

The most noticeable change to the exterior comes to the front of the car thanks to a new large grille opening on the nose along with new headlights and a horizontal chrome grille fit with the Toyota emblem.
