Bling-centric rappers everywhere will have one less exorbitantly expensive thing to acquire and then rap about.

GM has decided that Cadillac's Sixteen, the sleek sedan with a hundred thousand dollar price tag won't be rolling into dealerships any time soon.

Good. My fragile ego couldn't stand the thought of someone out there enjoying prosperity that surpassed my own and then mentioning it using a tight rhyme scheme. I'm looking at you YTCracker!

The forthcoming new MINI Cooper S ain't so forthcoming.

Leaky fuel pumps on 3,000 of the new models have delayed the release of the pint sized motor car indefinitely.

The situation will most certainly be remedied when the Oxford plant reopens just after the New Year.

Hmmmm...one might say this little gem of information was...um...leaked!

Yowza!!!

Chery Recalls Lemon

Chinese automotive manufacturer Chery has turned out a lemon, the Tiggo SUV. As part of a global recall, the first in the company's history and a rarity among Chinese automakers, Chery is hauling 1,875 of the SUVs back to the factory floor.

The reason is potential engine failure thanks to bad fan controllers in the SUVs with automatic transmission. The company believes that of the 25,000 Tiggos shipped this year only 80 need to be recalled, but it looks like it's not taking any chances.

Hahahahaha...stupid carmakers.

Street Fury's Big C always has a few tricks up his sleeve...

This week he had a tricked out Scion TC up his sleeve and he even let us nerds at G4 check it out. Notice there's an Xbox 360 in the back? Notice that Big C is playing it through the friggin' headlights? Check out that sweet engine and those badass rims. Yes, sometimes by simply hanging out with Big C, we geeks actually seems a little bit cooler, don't we? [The answer to that of course is NO, by the way.]

FYI, if you look real hard, you'll spot TheFeed's own DVinson and SJohnson among the Scion admirers...

Enjoy the photo gallery of this delightful day in G4 history.

P.S. - Watch the season finale of Street Fury this Sunday at 2.p.m. ET.

How much do you love David Hasselhoff?

Enough to bid at least $5,300 on eBay for his ratty old 1970 4-speed Porsche 911 T complete with a sunroof? I thought so...

Yes, you could ride around like Michael Knight in KITT, Mitch Buchanan in his beach cruiser, or the Hoff himself in...whatever car he currently drives.

Don't worry, the seller even promises to provide proof of the Hoff's ownership of said ride.

So you better get over there quick and bid, ?cause there's only 8 days left!

You know that there's this Ford Vs. Chevy thing that's been going on for a long time, right? Like, Ford people hate Chevy people and vice versa. Well, this battle is going to be played out viscerally on the big screen in The Transformers, as Bumblebee (a Chevy Camaro) and Barricade (a Ford Mustang) will get their on on in the film.

Odds are pretty good that Barricade, the Decepticon, will win, which will assert Ford's dominance for everyone to see. Take that, Calvin-from-Calvin-and-Hobbes*-pissing-on-the-Ford-logo-guy. Now, you'll know. And all your little Chevy-lovin' friends, too...Seriously? I mean, does this really mean something to people? Don't you have lives? Why don't you go volunteer at a soup kitchen or something.

*Calvin and Hobbes is a comic from the 80's and 90's, and it was very funny.

Porsche is reportedly in the process of developing a night vision system that will likely debut when the 997 gets a makeover next year.

The system will feature a set of infrared projector beams mounted within the headlamp that will exchange information via a camera mounted on the windshield, then project the enhanced image onto a screen.

Sweet, eh? That's on some James Bond type sh*t right there, boy.

Hitler's Sweet Ride

One of two remaining Auto Union D-Types, commissioned by Adolf Hitler to showcase the technological superiority of the Reich, will be sold in Paris by Christie's this February. It is expected to top the current most expensive car record holder, an 11-million-dollar Bugatti.

Ferdinand Porsche developed the Auto-Union racers, which were designed and built in the 1930s. The "[shiny silver streamliners] use a mid-engine layout with fully independent suspensions and supercharged engines."

The car was discovered disassembled in Russia, where it was taken for reverse-engineering, and later reassembled.

Didn't they do that to Hitler's brain too, I heard?
