Porsche has always remained one of the top sports car manufacturers in the world and it still manages to live up to its name with the kind of vehicles that Porsche introduces.
However, it was way back in 1948 when Ferdinand Porsche decided to come up with the very first sports car that still bears his name.
With three decades of experience on hand, Ferdinand Porsche was able to come up with Egger-Lohner electric vehicle, C.2 Phaeton model which is also popularly known as P1 in the year 1998.
With an interesting design by Ferdinand Porsche this vehicle has changed the way we drive cars today. The P1 has been parked in the warehouse in 1902 but Porsche has finally decided to bring it forward to the car enthusiasts and therefore they will exhibit the car at the Porsche Museum.

Who said vintage cars are only meant for exhibition? Many vintage car collectors are passionate drivers and they know how to keep their vintage car in great shape and use them to recharge their life. Scott Fisher is among those who prefer to keep his vintage car on the road rather than on an exhibition and he has done it in style touring around the United States in his 1967 Datsun Fairlady Roadster. It is certainly a great pleasure to trip across the country roads in a vintage car that can take you back into memories and allow you to feel nostalgic.

When you’re racing, all that matters is grip. Well, that and finishing first, but the former is a prerequisite for the latter. Whether it’s a drag race, motocross or the circuit, get the power down and stay facing in the right direction. Those rubber doughnuts we call tires will get the job done.
Regular motorcycle tires have a whole bunch of compromises. Sure, they’re expected to provide good grip and braking, but a quiet and comfortable ride are almost as important, and increasingly, buyers want low rolling resistance, too.
Enthusiastic drivers who revel in the “feel” of their car and live for lateral G’s, have different priorities. They want crisp handling with great feedback so they know how their tires are working. They want superlative grip but don’t care much for noise and even durability.
In short, they want street-legal race tires. If you don’t know the difference between street and racing tires, wise up.

The most effective way to tell if you need new tires is to look at them. Sounds simple, right? It is if you know what you’re looking for. Check each tire individually because they wear at different rates. You don’t have to stick with the brand, size or type of tire that came with your car from the manufacturer. Your wheels and tires were probably matched to the car based on its trim package. For example, the Toyota Corolla comes in L, LE and S models. The S model comes with 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels while the LE Special Edition comes with 16-inch alloys. The easiest way to know which tire to buy is to understand the rating system for tires, which describes many characteristics for the tires. There are also many tire brands to consider. Goodyear, BFGoodrich, Michelin and Firestone are all solid choices. For example, BFGoodrich has used motorsports testing for more than three decades to ensure quality, according to the write-up of BFGoodrich tires from discounttire.com. Michelin, on the other hand, remains one of the largest tire manufacturers on the globe. But more important than brand, motorists should consider the following tire factors.
