The accuracy of that comic is disturbing.

Shouldn’t that be thruster power to life support...? Turn on that AC, and your acceleration goes 0 to 60 in oh... 40 minutes.

I used to feel that way as well but my 2.5L Altima is pretty good. It beats out some older 3.0L V6's I have owned. I was dead set against a 4 cylinder before test driving some of the newer ones. Nissan, Toyota, and Hyundai all seem to have decent 4 cylinders. The Honda Civic didn't impress though (back in 2013).

The light is green so you're turning the A/C off.

Was out in the sunshine, I didn’t see that... you’re correct!

All I could see was "convert" where it clearly should have been "divert"

In Europe, driving anything with more than 4 cylinders is considered to be actually setting fire to the planet.

Yup. We just got a new car. A Ford Focus (which they don't even sell in the USA) with 3 cylinders and 125 horses. More than enough to go 130 kph on the highway and with lots of acceleration. It even throttles down and only uses 2 cylinders when it doesn't need the third.

Edit: The image would have made more sense 10-15 years ago when engine optimization was less advanced.

Even their F1 cars are hybrids.

Turbos make all the difference in the world.

Turns out that there is, in fact, a replacement for displacement.

As a Saab driver from 1996 to 2018 I have to agree, but I think going forward electrics will be where it's at. My 194hp hybrid Rav4 feels a good deal peppier than my turbocharged 210hp Saab 9-3 did.

Let's just borrow from modern F1 and do all three.
Turbo gas/electric hybrid motors.

That's because people buy horsepower but feel torque. And electric motors are constant torque, I. E. feels like a lot of torque at low speed and starting.

I have a twin-scroll turbo in my MINI and that little car feels amazing when it accelerates. That said, my next motorcycle will almost certainly be a Lightning Strike (or something similar), and my next car may very well be full electric as well.

The PS4 controller changed more than the Xbox One's. Also that graphic really needs the original Playstation controller from back before the N64 proved that analog sticks were a thing.

Yeah, I was going to say, the Dual Shock 4 carries a similar design philosophy to the other PS controllers, but honestly it's such a drastic improvement over the previous generations that it makes the older ones feel "broke."
