Dual-motor Tesla Model 3 possibly coming in July

  Dual-motor Tesla Model 3 possibly coming in July Can the perpetually optimistic Musk kick out the jams in Model 3 production enough to double down on drivetrains?The announcement came, unsurprisingly, in the form of a tweet, and said production ramp-up for Model 3 would need to hit 5,000 cars per week before additional complexity could be added. Considering the trouble Tesla has had in meeting even 2,500 cars per week, this announcement comes off as a case of the cart going directly before the horse.

Really good. Recently, CR landed the license to build three more classic Mustangs: the 1969-1970 Boss 302, the 1969-1970 Boss 429, and the 1969-1970 Mach 1. These aren't resto-mods, either. Underneath the vintage sheetmetal, you essentially get a brand new car.

One of the things we enjoy most about the San Marino Motor Classic (SMMC) in California, besides the fact that it's a 20-minute drive from home, is the diversity. This is the kind of concours d'elegance where you can expect the expected—prewar Classics, brass-era cars, even a steamer or two—as well as the totally unexpected. Comedian, podcaster, and film producer Adam Carolla brought 10 of Paul Newman's race cars. ("The salad dressing guy?" my daughter asked.) A 1970 Buick Estate Wagon was not only on display, but it also won a class award, as did a 1967 Ford Country Squire. And we were glad to see that the Historic Vehicle Association had its own class of well-preserved originals, with awards given to a 1954 Jaguar XK120, a 1939 Lincoln Zephyr, and a 1972 Citroen SM.

Like we said, diversity.

We were there with camera and notebook in hand because a healthy percentage of the 350-some cars parked on the beautiful grounds of Lacy Park were muscle cars. Class Manager Joe Salvo and Assistant Class Manager Paul Ginsburg worked hard over the past year to gather enough high-performance Detroit iron that they filled four classes, two for big-block cars (GM and non) and two for pony cars (Mustangs and the rest). Motor Classic in the show's name may have to change to Muscle Cars if Salvo and Ginsburg keep this up.

As if stunning cars parked in a gorgeous location weren't enough to recommend this show, it also takes place in early June, so the SoCal weather is usually perfect (not too hot, not too gray). There's a wide assortment of food trucks parked on the grounds to sate any taste. And all money generated by the concours goes to local charities. This year the show raised more than $300,000 for the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA, the Rotary Club of San Marino, and the USC Trojan Marching Band, members of which played on the grounds throughout the day. Now in its eighth year, the SMMC has generated $1.9 million for charity.

Mark your calendars: The next San Marino Motor Classic is scheduled for June 9, 2019. Visit sanmarinomotorclassic.com for more info.

German Financial Company Says Screw Stocks, Get a Vintage Car Instead .
Are you loaded and financially liquid? Consider a classic BMW, Mercedes, or Porsche, the bank says.Eyeing the opportunity, Südwestbank launched its own Oldtimer Index (OTX) in 2010. It includes the 20 highest-value cars that are at least 30 years old from Stuttgart-area stalwarts such as Mercedes-Benz and Porsche and Bavaria’s BMW and Audi. The index is calculated once a year by multiplying model prices in Germany’s Motor Klassik magazine and marketplace with registration numbers from Germany’s Federal Motor Transport Authority.
