Internet Brands has announced the launch of Wikicars, now available at Wikicars.org.
The site is new, of course, but is already populated with a lot of information including a hybrid guide, specs for a wide variety of cars, and odd little car-oriented lists (What the Stars Drive, The Most Expensive Cars, etc.) There were also a huge number of pictures here compared to what I usually see in Wikipedia.
Though this is a Wiki, it doesn’t strictly conform to what I think of as the spirit of Wikipedia. I think of Wikipedia as an attempt to create a clearinghouse of objective information. While Wikicars does have a number of articles that appear objectively written, it also has reviews. For example, the review for the Toyota Prius is at http://wikicars.org/en/Toyota_Prius_Review.
I’m not horribly offended by that, but you should keep in mind that there are both articles and reviews here. Happily the review was very clearly marked.
