This is certainly interesting, I just hope it's not an incredibly short series.

As it's a magazine tie-in I'd expect it to either be a few minutes in length, or only a few episodes long.

The animation strikes me to be similar or the same as Gyrozetter series with their transformable Mecha cars..Not series...not really happy about it.

Looks kinda fun, but I doubt it'll put up much of a fight against Gyrozetter if somoene wants a transforming car robot anime

I'll be blunt here. The whole premise of this show is just plain goofy. There were no cars or planes in the Warring States Period of Japanese history. I can't see how it could possibly work. It would still work about as well as someone in Hollywood getting the idea to send the Transformers back to the Wild West. There is no possible way on earth either of those ideas could possibly work.
I remember I did see once a later Transformers anime that was set in the United States. But it was in modern-day America. I'd be amazed if this Transformers in the Warring States Era show actually worked out. I can imagine Japanese Transformers fans laughing their heads off over this one.

I'm pretty sure IDW bet you to that idea, but in their version the Transformers took traditional looking alternate modes (steam locomotives, etc.) rather than being just plain ol' futuristic cars.
