For the 2020 model year, Porsche is planning to deliver the Taycan in two variants, the Turbo and the Turbo S. The Porsche Taycan Turbo begins at a base price of $150,900 whereas the Turbo S will begin at $185,000. So, to upgrade from Turbo to Turbo S, expect to spend an additional $34,100 before taxes. Although, there are incentives for purchasing EVs and going green. And, furthermore, with this Porsche, going green sounds good… real good! Now, let’s take a dive into the differences between these two models.

The Porsche Taycan Turbo and Turbo S differ in a few ways, and not so much in others, such as AWD. Firstly, the Turbo S has a carbon fiber trim that stands out. Secondly, the S sports carbon ceramic brakes with 21” wheels. Thirdly, and lastly, the Turbo S has a larger front motor. Both vehicles have a normal driving mode with 617 horsepower. But, in overboost mode, the Turbo hits 671 horsepower while the Turbo S reaches 751 horsepower. Yep… the Turbo S has 80 more horsepower where it counts… in overboost.

Furthermore, the Turbo has 627 lb.-ft. of torque while the Turbo S boasts 774 lb.-ft. of torque. That’s almost 150 lb.-ft. difference… wow! Regardless of power, both cars max out around 162 mph top speed. So, let’s check those track times! The Taycan Turbo can reach 60 mph in only 3.2 seconds and finish a quarter mile in 11.1 seconds. On the other hand, the Turbo S hits 60 mph in only 2.6 seconds with a quarter mile time of 10.8 seconds. So, as expected, the Turbo S performs better on the track, or highway. Just think of it as an upgraded Mission E.

Which 2020 Taycan Variant is Better?

FIRST LOOK: Porsche Taycan Turbo | Top Gear – YouTube

So, which Taycan is better? Obviously the Porsche Taycan Turbo S is the current crème of the crop. With a ton more horsepower and torque, this is no surprise… also an additional $34,100. Before concluding, let’s take a dive into the charging and mileage. Porsche claims the Taycan can go from 5 to 80% charge in only 22.5 minutes. This is due to a 350-kW 800-V DC setup. But, for the first year, Porsche will only offer 250-kW systems. On the mileage side, the Turbo will complete 237-280 miles per charge and the Turbo S roughly 241-256 miles. While the batteries provide most of the energy, this car also boasts regenerative brakes. Overall, the Taycan is an awesome car, regardless of which model makes it home to the garage.

Recently, news headlines across all automotive sites, and even non-auto sites, are shining light on the Bugatti Chiron Sport’s recent accomplishment. What is this achievement? Well, the Bugatti Chiron was able to reach 304 mph! Yes, you read that correctly! On the Ehra-Lessien Test Track, Bugatti completed a one direction run with a custom Chiron. Why one direction? Nobody knows, but due to this, the car did not set the Guinness World Record… more on that below. Either way, reaching over 300 mph is a leap forward in the world of auto transportation!

Is 300 MPH Even Possible!? Yes… Yes, It Is.

So, many people wonder… is 300 mph even possible!? The simple answer is… yes… yes, it is. The Chiron’s 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine boasts 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 lb.-ft. of torque. Beyond this, the record reaching Bugatti Chiron Sport has a few modifications. Firstly, there is a Dallara custom longtail body on this version. This extension equates to 10” longer than the base Chiron. Furthermore, this car sports a laser-controlled system for ride height. With these additions, the car was considered safe enough to make the run. But VW wasn’t willing to test the car anywhere else, or more than once. And, even worse, Bugatti will no longer attempt to set speed records for production cars as of recent news.

So, Why No Guinness World Record?

Finally, to conclude the article, why is there no Guinness World Record for this accomplishment? Well, the Guinness rules state that 2 attempts must be made, in both directions, and the average would be used for the record. Since the Chiron Sport didn’t make a second run, it couldn’t set a Guinness record. But it definitely set a record… nobody can deny that. Regardless of being in the book, or not. On the Ehra-Lessien Test Track, this Chiron reached exactly 304.773 mph (490.484 kph). Overall, this is an achievement by all means, so congratulations to Bugatti!

Volkswagen Tarok Concept: Teasing U.S. Buyers

Volkswagen Tarok Concept: Teasing U.S. Buyers

Is the U.S. Ready for a VW Pickup Truck?

At the New York International Auto Show in 2019, VW debuted its second SUV at the show in history. This time, the Volkswagen Tarok Concept was on display. The purpose of this showcasing is to tease buyers in the U.S. From there, VW can decide if to bring the Tarok to the United States… or not. Currently, the Tarok is going to hit production for sales in South America. So, will the Tarok make it to the U.S.? Well, only time will tell. Is there demand for a German pickup truck? Probably… but is it enough?

Turbocharged 1.4-Liter Engine with 147 Horsepower

Volkswagen Tarok Concept - Trunk Extension - Manufacturer Picture - EuroDrift

Volkswagen Tarok Concept – Trunk Extension – Manufacturer Picture – EuroDrift

The Volkswagen Tarok Concept sports a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine that offers 147 horsepower. Backing this up is a 6-speed transmission and 4Motion AWD system. This is the same engine as seen in the VW Golf Hatchback. These specs may be a major mistake if joining the U.S. market is a goal. Many pickup trucks sold in the U.S. sport at minimum a V6, but preferably a V8. So, would U.S. buyers consider a 1.4-liter engine? Possibly. With the EV pickup truck battle taking place, smaller engine pickups may catch on… or not. Honestly, this is why the car was put on display as a concept, as nobody knows. Surely, VW will decide in the near future on this car’s production.

How are the Tarok’s Towing Capabilities?

As with any pickup truck, it needs to be able to haul quite a bit of weight. So, VW was sure to reach for high expectations. The Tarok can handle 2,271 pounds with 73.2” in freight space. This is due to the foldable panel behind the rear seat. By adjusting the seat, the area in the truck bed can expand quite a bit. So, will the engine deter buyers, or will they embrace this vehicle? Truthfully, only time will tell.

What’s Better than the GLA? The GLB!

At Auto Shanghai 2019, Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz made a concept debut to the public. The Mercedes-Benz Concept GLB is being marketed as a “spacious and robust” compact SUV. So… this may make some people wonder, why so many Benz SUVs? Well, the GLB is part of a long chain of high-quality German engineering by Benz to capture the SUV market. Prior to the GLB, Mercedes has sold 6 million SUVs to customers worldwide.

In 2018 alone, SUVs were the strongest segment of the manufacturer with 820,000 units sold. So, Mercedes is simply following a trend of popularity with their SUVs.

Turbo Four-Cylinder Engine with 221 Horsepower

Mercedes-Benz Concept GLB - Side - Manufacturer Picture - EuroDrift

Mercedes-Benz Concept GLB – Side – Manufacturer Picture – EuroDrift

Under the hood, the Concept GLB sports a 4-cylinder turbo engine. This motor boasts 221 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. For the size of this car, this is a reasonable amount of power. Especially, since there will most likely be an AMG version. But that is likely a year or 2 down the road. The amount of torque backs up the vehicle’s off-road style and vision.

Just as the GLA, this car will most likely have a speed and price aimed at the entry SUV market. But, it’ll probably be a bit more pricey than the GLA, and include enough seating space for 7 occupants. Furthermore, it should be cheaper than the GLC. Lastly, don’t forget about the larger GLE or GLS. Phew! Thinking about it, that’s a lot of dang SUVs!

The Mercedes Concept GLB is a pretty awesome vehicle. To top off its SUV body styling, this vehicle also contains high quality Benz technology. Firstly, there are the MULTIBEAM LED headlamps on the frontend, giving it a very modern fascia. Next, there is the MBUX entertainment system, which is also called Mercedes-Benz User Experience. There’s also hints of off-road styling inside to complement the vehicle itself. Overall, the GLB seems like it will sell well on the worldwide market… it’s compact but serves a multi-purpose.

Mercedes-AMG S 65 Final Edition: Farewell to S-Class V12

Mercedes-AMG S 65 Final Edition: Farewell to S-Class V12

An Official Goodbye to the S-Class V12

After many, many years of the S-Class sporting a V12 option, it is time to say farewell. To close out the S-Class V12 era, Daimler is introducing the Mercedes-AMG S 65 Final Edition. This vehicle has a limit of 130 units that include a number badge. Furthermore, the car arrives with a styling Obsidian Black Metallic paintjob and a mix of carbon fiber and copper accents. The Final Edition made its debut at the Geneva Auto Show in 2019. Although this car is a tribute to the era of V12 S-Class vehicles, it signals the next design that is coming soon. The next-gen S-Class will probably boast similar power with a smaller, more efficient engine. Honestly, don’t be surprised to see a fully electric or hybrid version… but who knows?

6.5-Liter Twin-Turbo V12 with 621 Horsepower

The Mercedes-AMG S 65 Final Edition sports a 6.5-liter twin-turbo V12 engine. This motor boasts 612 horsepower and 738 lb.-ft. of torque. From 0 to 60 mph, this large luxury vehicle takes only 3.9 seconds. While this much power and speed sounds great, the 6.3-Liter V8 in the S63 sedan is actually faster. While the wild roar of the V12 will be missed by many, the power will not be gone. Actually, there will probably be more power, and more efficiency. So, that means the power will be more responsive and capable of performing with the crème of the crop.

Sadly, it is time for the 6.5-liter twin-turbo V12 to part ways from the S-Class. After so many years of such a beastly engine, it may take a moment for this to stick to the AMG V12 fans. But, don’t be afraid of the future! The future may not have gas guzzling V12s, but it has more speed, efficiency, and technology. So, while the roar may be gone, the car will be better… and faster! Between the special paint, the matte bronze accents, the 20” bronze wheels, and the AMG crest on the rear roof pillar, this car is stunning. Owning one of these cars would be amazing as it is truly a collectible masterpiece. Let’s finish this article off with a final statement. Thank you Mercedes-AMG for the V12 era and the hype surrounding this monster of engineering defeat.

White BMW Wagon Illegally Drives thru Washington State Mall

White BMW Wagon Illegally Drives thru Washington State Mall

Believe It or Not… It’s True!

Whether any reader believes this or not… it’s a true story! In Washington state, a white BMW wagon drove thru the Wenatchee Valley Mall around 6 PM on Thursday, May 8th. The driver, Francisco Samuel “Sam” Kehoe (age 31), initially parked outside of the mall. Then, sporadically, the driver enters the mall with the white BMW wagon and drives illegally through it. The car smashes through the mall doors, then maneuver its way around the employees, objects, and shoppers. After the ordeal, police arrest “Sam” and find a pair of empty syringes and a pack of meth in the vehicle. Obviously, this driver’s arrest is due to DUI, hit and run, and reckless endangerment charges. Don’t expect to see him back on the road anytime soon…

Insane Idea Inspired by Heroin and Meth

”I’ve been almost three decades of policing and I’ve lived here my whole life, but I’ve never known of someone crashing through the doors of a mall and going for a joyride.” – Officer Joe Hinkle of East Wenatchee, Washington Police (Interview with iFiberone News)

The entire idea of driving a white BMW wagon illegally into the Wenatchee Valley Mall was due to the use of heroin and meth. “Sam” admitted to using both heroin and meth prior to driving into the mall. So, that may be the reason he was seen outside in the first place. There is no fact at this moment, but the driver was probably using the drugs while sitting in the mall parking lot. But, either way, driving through a mall without permission is crazy. This isn’t like the guy in Saudi Arabia that paid to rent an entire mall to drive his Aston Martin around inside while shopping. That’s a whole different story… check it out here!

Yes, There’s Footage of This Crazy Story on YouTube!

Man Drives Through Wenatchee Valley all 2019-05-08

Overall, this entire scenario is something that most people don’t hear about in a lifetime. How often does a vehicle smash into the mall and go for a joyride? Not often. But, that is exactly what happened at the Wenatchee Valley Mall in Washington state. That white BMW (Pronounced “BMV“) wagon had no trouble plowing through glass doors and taking a journey through crowds of bewildered spectators. At least, as it seems, nobody was hurt during this crazy drug fueled decision-making process. On the other hand, damage to the mall will cost thousands and include replacing the door that was impacted during the cruise. The driver initially entered through a door by ROSS, as seen in the video, then also drove out the same way. Wow, this is one heck of story… right?

Lotus Type 130: The UK’s 1st All-Electric Supercar

Lotus Type 130: The UK’s 1st All-Electric Supercar

Lotus Ends 10-Year Hiatus with All-Electric Supercar

“Type 130 will be the most dynamically accomplished Lotus in our history.” – Lotus CEO Phil Popham

In the current decade, Lotus has been sitting by the sideline with no clear plans for a new vehicle. But, this changes with a new major announcement. The Lotus Type 130 will be the company’s 1st vehicle in the last decade. It will also be the United Kingdom’s 1st electric supercar. So, with this, not only does Lotus plan to break the 10-year hiatus, they also plan to be the first electric supercar from the U.K. The car made its debut at Auto Shanghai 2019 with an expected sale date in 2020. And, for those that don’t know, this will be the first car since the Geely buyout. Geely is a Chinese car manufacturer that also owns Lynk & Co. plus Volvo.

What Engine? How Much Power? Sadly, Not Enough Details!

So, after reading about the Lotus Type 130 all-electric supercar, a question lingers on… what engine and how much power? Well, currently, there’s enough information to elaborate on this topic. Obviously, being an all-electric vehicle (EV), this car should not have any combustion power at all. So, it will most likely sport multiple electric motors. These motors will most likely drive individual wheels, or the front and rear separately. This is the usual design for these types of vehicles. And, a battery compartment will be necessary, probably in the front or rear hood where space was previously in use by a gasoline motor.

Lotus Sets High Expectations for Upcoming Model

Introducing the Lotus Type 130 – Lotus Cars – YouTube

With the Lotus Type 130 all-electric supercar, the manufacturer sets a goal of high expectations. Being the first fully electric supercar from Britain is an accomplishment. Rolls-Royce may not be in the market, but Bentley definitely could be. Bentley builds some great luxury vehicles and will probably try to offer an electric Continental at some point. If not, they’re slacking on the upcoming decade of EVs. But, only time will tell, as not enough info is currently available. Overall, Lotus is coming back from their hiatus and people are looking forward to it!

Koenigsegg Crash Tests Sound Quite Expensive, But Necessary!

Koenigsegg Crash Tests Sound Quite Expensive, But Necessary!

Every Legal Street Car Must Pass Crash Test Analysis

In recent news, Koenigsegg crash tests are in the spotlight. Why? Because Koenigsegg, a hypercar manufacturer, builds a limited number of exclusive models at extremely steep prices. Hence, a crash test in itself can be a multi-million-dollar ordeal. So, how does a small manufacturer handle these extensive costs? Well, by using a one frame method for testing rather than building multiple fully functional vehicles. This will be the topic in the next section of the article.

About one week ago, the APEX ONE YouTube channel put up the video seen below discussing this exact issue. In the video, employees and even Christian von Koenigsegg himself speaks of the testing experience. Check it out below!

One Carbon Fiber Monocoque Frame for Testing Purposes

For testing purposes, Koenigsegg builds one carbon fiber monocoque frame. Then, the manufacturer adds on body panels, crumple zones, and subframes. These three components can be easily replaced, while the main frame would require a lot more funding and work. So, the goal for the company is to build a vehicle to withstand multiple Koenigsegg crash tests. Starting with drop-offs, head-on collisions into tires, and massive speed bumps, the car is pushed to its limit.

Just thinking about these tests can cause distress in any auto fan, especially for lowered vehicle drivers. And, furthermore, it’s difficult to imagine an Agera RS taking such a beating. Finally, the car undergoes more testing such as hammering, slamming, and even an airbag dummy test. Phew! Why must this beautiful car suffer!? For safety! That’s why!

Koenigsegg Hypercars are Legendary Automobiles

How To Crash A $2 Million Koenigsegg Hypercar – www.APEX.one – APEX ONE -YouTube

Overall, the Koenigsegg manufacturer builds legendary automobiles. Every single model is unique, limited, and worth a fortune. Owning a Koenigsegg is a car collector’s dream. And, knowing Koenigsegg crash tests ensure the car’s safety, it can be driven once a year for that weekend get together. As most people suspect, driving a multi-million-dollar car carries quite a steep insurance payment. Recently, Auto Insurance Center stated a Bugatti Veyron can run $50,000 a year for insurance. So, this car isn’t probably far off. Hence, most people probably don’t daily drive these cars. A fender bender could cost 6-digits, especially if the damage is extensive. Hands down, these cars are build for the track and tested to handle those conditions.

Warning: Watch the video below at your own discretion. The destruction of such a vehicle may cause nightmares.

How Did North Korea Obtain Luxurious Maybach Limousines?

How Did North Korea Obtain Luxurious Maybach Limousines?

Daimler Claims No Knowledge on North Korea’s Auto Fleet

In recent auto news, spectators have pointed out that Kim Jong-un cruises about on his summits in Mercedes luxury vehicles. As everyone knows, Maybach is basically an even more luxurious Mercedes, at a much steeper price. Daimler AG, the Stuttgart-based company, states that the company has no knowledge on how North Korea obtained these vehicles. Currently, the UN has sanctions in place to prevent North Korea from the sale of luxury goods. This rule includes all luxury automobiles, such as Mercedes-Benz. So, how did North Korea obtain these vehicles? Probably from another country that doesn’t care for the UN sanctions.

Honestly, these vehicles aren’t brand new – so it seems like Kim is riding around in someone else’s leftovers. It could be China, it could be Russia, but honestly, nobody truly knows – except the people involved in the trade. So, let’s not point fingers… yet!

Mercedes Maybach S600 Pullman Guard & S62 Models

The news surrounding North Korea’s use of Daimler vehicles points towards two specific models. Not surprisingly, both of these models are the crème of the crop – Maybach. Kim Jong-un may not have the newest vehicles, but he has a sense of style. The Mercedes Maybach S600 Pullman Guard and Mercedes Maybach S62 are quite phenomenal vehicles. The brand new S600 Pullman Guard starts at a MSRP of $1,600,000. Yes, 1.6 million USD.

But, what about a used model? Honestly, trying to figure out depreciation or collectible value on a vehicle like this is like cavemen developing a rocket ship. It could be possible, but good luck figuring it out.

Traveling Abroad in Maybach Luxurious Vehicles

So, now the world knows – Kim Jong-un travels abroad in luxurious Maybach vehicles. These vehicles were seen in use during meetings with U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. At the same time, North Korea’s “Secret Service” runs alongside the limo, protecting it from any threats. Honestly, that may be one of the most entertaining portions of his arrival. Watching those men sprint alongside the limo while being vigilantly alert is quite amusing. What happens if someone trips? Do they leave that man behind? Hopefully, that doesn’t happen.

Will the Audi E-Tron GT Concept Sell on the Market?


In the past, car “gurus” thought electric vehicles weren’t going to work. They weren’t good enough and didn’t provide enough reason to switch. But, nowadays, EVs are the way of the future! So, many people may wonder – will the Audi E-Tron GT Concept sell on the market? The answer is – YES! Just take a glance at the Porsche Taycan. Porsche was definitely hesitant to jump into the EV game. Now, they’re enticing it. The Taycan is so popular, that Porsche is opening a factory just to tackle the demand. So, if Audi does a similar thing, it will most likely do very well. Plus, this car looks absolutely stunning. So, how could one go wrong?
