Porshe Foxster & Cayman New Facelift

Porsche unveiled the facelifted Porsche Boxster roadster and the facelifted Porsche Cayman coupe at the 2008 Los Angeles International Auto Show. The duo now offers the PDK dual clutch transmission replacing the outgoing Tiptronic S slushbox, and the Boxster S and Cayman S now has direct fuel injection on its 3.4 liter engines.

Other than a folding soft top on the Boxster and a coupe roof on the Cayman, the two cars also have some differences in design such as the extra diffuser inserts on the Boxster and the wind deflector plate on the Cayman. On the front end, each have their own front bumper design. Even the front signal lamps are configured differently. While both use LED signal lamps, the Cayman’s LEDs are arranged in a square like the face of dice while the Boxster gets a horizontal row of 4 LEDs.

The base engine in the Boxster and Cayman is the 2.9 liter boxer engine, producing 255hp in the Boxster and 265hp in the Cayman. This mean other than being a roadster and coupe version of the same car, the coupe is now more powerful than the roadster across the range as even in the S versions, the direct fuel injected 3.4 liter engine in the Cayman makes 320hp, a 10hp advantage over the 3.4 liter unit in the Boxster S which makes 310hp.

The new cars are more fuel efficient than the pre-facelift versions. The 2.9 liter version does 8.9 liters per 100km according to the EU4 standard, which is 11% less than the outgoing Tiptronic S model.

Lewis Hamilton : 2008 F1 World Championship

Felipe Massa took a dominant victory in a thrilling race in front of his home crowd at Interlagos and looked to have snatched the drivers' crown until the final corner. Hamilton's fifth place finish was just enough to clinch the championship. In the race, Alonso finished second and Raikkonen third, confirming the constructors' championship for Ferrari.

With the Brazilian fans getting well into the action for a nail-biting, deciding Grand Prix, there was an early twist just two minutes before the parade lap a heavy, two-minute rain shower forced the start to be postponed by ten minutes, to allow teams to change to intermediate tyres if necessary.

Massa made a perfect start to lead Trulli, Raikkonen and Hamilton into the first corner while behind him Kovalainen fell away and lost position to Vettel and Alonso. The safety car was deployed after Piquet and Coulthard was clipped by a Williams in the first corner and also collected Piquet, ending both hopes.

The safety car was in on lap four and Massa led the field, inching out a two-second lead by lap nine. Vettel and Alonso were the first front runners to switch to dry tyres that lap, followed in by Massa on lap 10. Trulli, Raikkonen and Hamilton pitted the following lap and while Ferrari got Raikkonen ahead of the Toyota, they all lost out and rejoined behind Massa, Vettel, Alonso and Fisichella.

Raikkonen soon passed Fisichella for fourth while Hamilton got ahead of a struggling Trulli to take sixth on lap 13.

Massa kept his cool out front, keeping Vettel and Alonso at bay while team mate Raikkonen did his job of backing off with Hamilton finding no way past Fisichella until a brave move down the inside of turn one on lap 18.

Vettel held onto Massa easily until lap 27 when it became clear he was very light on fuel and needed to pit. He rejoined in sixth, while Hamilton moved up to fourth as a result.

Massa built a lead of 7.1s over Alonso before pitting on lap 38. The Spaniard stayed out two more laps before pitting on lap 40, along with Lewis Hamilton. As the second round of stops were complete on lap 43, Massa led Vettel, Alonso, Raikkonen and Hamilton.

Vettel held onto second until lap 51 when he made his third stop, rejoining in fifth, behind Hamilton, but easily closing in on the McLaren's rear wing.

Massa continued to look flawless out front even when on lap 63 a few more spots of rain began to fall in the pit lane. Hamilton meanwhile was hanging on in fourth, fending off Sebastian Vettel.

The rain intensified with five laps to go and forced the front runners to pit for intermediate tyres. Timo Glock chose not to in the Toyota and climbed to fourth, pushing Hamilton to fifth with Vettel right on his tail.

In the closing laps, Hamilton ran wide and Vettel passed him for fifth and it all looked lost for Hamilton with two laps remaining. He had no reply for the Toro Rosso and looked set to miss out for the second straight year when lady luck paid out in the final corner as Hamilton got past Timo Glock's struggling Toyota, still on dry tyres in wet conditions and came home by the skin of his teeth to win the drivers' championship.

Massa took the win from Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen, Sebastian Vettel, Hamilton, Glock, Kovalainen and Trulli. Ferrari confirms its victory in the constructors' championship

Online Auto Insurance

Do you need to search for new auto insurance but it just doesn’t seem to fit into your schedule? If you are like me, there is only one insurance agent in this small town, and the rates definitely aren’t the best. A great alternative is the internet; you can find reliable auto insurance any time of the day when it is convenient for you. In many cases, you will get a lower rate because they don’t have the overhead costs involved with running an office.

It is very simple to do an online auto insurance. In fact, you will likely find thousands of links if you type it into a search engine. You can narrow the search by typing in a specific insurance company name. Some other helpful search options include searching by specific types of insurance (car, motorcycle, motor home, etc.) or searching by state.Before you begin, make sure you are aware of your state regulations. This is because many online auto insurance companies are going to ask you about the limits you want on medical coverage and such. You need to know what is required to meet the guidelines of the state where your vehicle is registered. You should also know what dollar amount you are willing to pay as a deductible. The deductible is the amount of money you will be required to pay when you submit any claim before the insurance will cover anything.

The higher deductible you choose the lower your premium will be. However, make sure you can cover the cost of that premium should you need to.While you will find many reputable online auto insurance companiesFree Web Content, there is also an opportunity for scams to take place under false pretenses. Anyone can design a website that looks legitimate. Find out information about the insurance company.

How long have they been in business? Where are they physically located? Look for a phone number on the website and call it. You should always check the business out with the Better Business Bureau as well. Make sure you type the name in exactly as it is listed. This is because scams often use a name very similar to a legitimate business name to avoid suspicion.
