Here's How the 2020 Toyota Supra's Performance Numbers Compare to the 1993 Supra Turbo's

  Here's How the 2020 Toyota Supra's Performance Numbers Compare to the 1993 Supra Turbo's We strapped our test gear to the all-new Supra to find out how it compares to the iconic fourth-gen model.We didn't want to just stop there, though, so we brought a Supra back to our Ann Arbor, Michigan, office to subject it to our full instrumented testing. And because we know our audience (and because we were interested, too), we decided to compare the new A90 Supra's numbers to those of a Supra Turbo that we tested in 1993, the first year of the fourth-generation A80 model.

Fast or not?

You thought I was done with the Zero after spending 33 hours in the saddle to travel 800 miles, huh? Well, you’re almost right. Let’s say that after that episode, the bike and I took a break. That being said, I wasn’t entirely done putting the Zero SR/F through its paces. One thing I wanted to test is just how quickly the Zero accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour. While the company advertises it as its first performance-oriented model and gladly lists a top speed, it hasn’t published official 0-to-60 numbers. So I decided to do a very scientific experiment to try and get an idea of how quickly it can get to highway speed.

Numbers-Matching 1972 Pontiac GTO Hits Hard

Numbers-Matching 1972 Pontiac GTO Hits Hard This American muscle car is hot. While many firmly believe American muscle died out come the 1971 model year, those people clearly don’t know about one of the best-kept secrets. Just take this 1972 Pontiac GTO for a spin and you’ll quickly realize it delivers performance in a big way. What’s more, the seller says it has under 46,000 original miles. Considering the excellent condition throughout, plus PHS documentation is being included, that figure is believable. Most people would be shocked to have a peek under the hood if this Pontiac GTO. There’s a big 400ci L78 V8 lurking there.

There are times when you just want to open up the throttle and see what happens! With a smaller battery (ie - smaller mass) the 0 - 60 time is 3.3 seconds.

To achieve that, I needed to borrow a GoPro. Trying to time myself while looking where I’m going and controlling my speed was becoming a little too much multitasking for a single woman. Plus, recording the stint would allow me to share the footage with you and get as precise a number as possible.

Jacob, a buddy of mine and new member of the RideApart family, kindly agreed to let me borrow his video equipment for the occasion. Off I went on a sunny Thursday night to find a deserted street to run my experiment. Already before testing the acceleration, I had a feeling it didn’t accelerate as fast as I was hoping it would but I had no number to support that theory. Now I do and here are my results.

The Methodology

I did three runs up and down the road, starting from a standstill and twisting the throttle to the max until I reached 60 mph (or close—the speedometer seems to skip some numbers during very sudden and enthusiastic accelerations). The plan was then to review the footage of all three of my runs, time them, and calculate the resulting average time for all three runs.

Obviously, putting the bike on a dyno and hooking it up to a computer would be the ideal method to get specific numbers but RideApart never budgeted for a dynamometer, so I had to make do with the tools I had.

The Results

On round number 1, according to my first-person footage, the speedometer flipped to 61 mph at the 6.75-second mark. On round number 2, I reached 62 mph in 6.25 seconds.

Now about that third run… I don’t have an actual number because, of course, I had to ruin one of my takes (incidentally the last one and the only one I didn’t double-check before calling it as day). We briefly see that around 5.58 seconds, the bike is at 53 mph. This likely means that I reached 60 mph in over 6 seconds during that third run as well but I didn’t take it into account since I don’t have a clear result.

Yesterday’s leaked photo previewed what is the first-ever production electrified model from Lamborghini. The Lambo Sian now makes an online debut in its full glory, revealing its spectacular design and impressive performance ahead of a public premiere at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show next week. And it’s a sight to behold. Getting to the point without further ado, the supercar relies on the same 6.5-liter V12 naturally aspirated engine that’s also used by the SVJ.

The average of the two first runs is therefore of approximately 6.5 seconds to reach an average speed of 61.5 mph (again, because the speedometer doesn’t run through every number during vivid accelerations—I know, I checked during the editing process and desperately looked for that 60.)

With that in mind, had I been able to get an actual 0-to-60 reading, the time would have been slightly lower than 6.5 seconds. I don’t suspect it would have been below the 6-second mark, however. Don’t take this as gospel, guys, there’s a few things that could have gone a lot better with this test. It was more of a “let’s see how fast it goes” rather than an attempt at an actual scientific number.

Where I Messed Up

Now, over 6 seconds is a pretty damning number for a motorcycle with high-performance aspirations and with a torque number as impressive as 140 lb-ft. What I realized (too late), is that I didn’t test the bike in Sport mode.

See, I got out of the habit of trying to change the riding modes on the Zero because the toggle to navigate through the modes is so finicky (read: cheap) that you never know whether it will work properly or not. I’ve dealt with all sorts of scenarios trying to change the modes, from the toggle not working at all to the modes flashing for 10 minutes and not engaging, which lead me to give up trying to change the modes altogether.

Numbers-Matching 1972 Ford Ranchero GT Is Extremely Rare Documented as a real GT born with a Cobra Jet motor. Volo Auto Museum is pleased to announce this super rare and beautiful 1972 Ford Ranchero GT for your consideration. This is a real GT equipped with the Cobra Jet engine, four-speed manual transmission, and Posi rear end. It was restored in 2011 as part of a Ford dealer’s collection. This vehicle is essentially a car-based pickup truck, and you’ll see why in the photos. Due to revised styling and some engine availability changes in 1970, the Ranchero began transforming into more of a personal luxury truck.

The Zero Chronicles are coming to an end. After putting the bike through a series of tests, we had yet to test its acceleration .

This means that I achieved these results in “Street” mode rather than in “Sport” mode. Chances are the bike would have been a lot faster and more responsive had I tested it in Sport mode. Some claim the Zero should be able to do the Kessel run in 3 seconds, which I'm not convinced of but 4 seconds isn't too far fetched.

As you’ve noticed in the video, I’ve also messed up the footage of my third run—probably leaning down a bit further than I should have, which kept me from getting a semi-precise time on my last 0-to-60. This means I was only able to properly record and calculate the average for two runs rather than three. You live, you learn.

This is the second to last story in my Zero Chronicles. I will get back to you with the overall conclusion of my experience of the 2020 Zero SR/F—it did teach me a few things along the way and I look forward to sharing them with you. Stay tuned, I promised it won’t take a month for the next story to come up.

2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire First Ride Review.
2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire is an inevitability sure to leave the traditionalists perplexed and the futurists intrigued . © Harley-Davidson Motorcyclist LiveWire represents a startling shift for those raised on the potato-potato thump. But in many ways this $29,799 EV is a rolling embodiment of what happens when Milwaukee traditionalists not only acknowledge the march of progress, but embrace it wholeheartedly. First and foremost, LiveWire looks like no other hog before it—a good thing, considering this is a fresh-slate opportunity if ever there was one.
