  • Cash: Not Coming to an Alfa Hood Near You
    The Alfa Romeo brand is an odd duck, and not just because of its “exotic” status or its on-again, off-again history in the United States. Italian car fans love it. Design enthusiasts drool over it. Performance enthusiasts and sports sedan traditionalists pine for a finely balanced, twin-turbocharged Giulia Quadrifoglio. Concerned friends warn them that other, […]

  • Rare Rides: The Special 1988 Alpina B7S Turbo Coupe in Tartan Plaid
    The glorious green Alpina coupe before your eyes nets three firsts for the Rare Rides series. It’s the first one coated in any shade of green paint, the first BMW, and indeed the first German vehicle in the series (I don’t count last week’s Rolls-Royce as German, though you might). Time for some eye candy. […]

  • Toyota Drops the Incredibly Unpopular Regular Cab Tundra for 2018
    Now that pickup trucks have graduated from the role of farm and construction site conveyance to family hauler, space and seating have become as important as bed length and payload capacity. Not surprisingly, regular cab pickups and even extended-cab models have become a scarce sight on local roads. Ram, Toyota and General Motors have since […]

  • General Motors Ends NHTSA Safety Oversight, Promises to Keep in Touch
    General Motors’ safety practices are no longer under the watchful eye of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The three-year oversight period was part of a settlement GM reached with U.S. regulators back in May 2014, resulting from its failure to recall defective ignition switches attributed to 124 deaths and countless injuries. While NHTSA’s role as General Motors’ […]

  • Nissan’s Next-gen Leaf Will Kind of, Sort of, Drive Itself
    After hemming and hawing for what seemed like forever, Nissan will bring American electric vehicle enthusiasts a long-overdue new Leaf later this year. Say goodbye to that old, swoopy body and 107-mile range (at best), and give a cheerful hello to a not-yet-revealed body, undisclosed driving range, and these headlights. Okay, so there’s not a […]

  • Spinning Your Wheels: Here’s Why Dyno Results Are Incomplete and Useless
    The release of the Civic Type R has created a lot of buzz. The recent media launch generated plenty of opinions as to its performance, including some reviewers who believe Honda has underrated the CTR in the same manner it has done with the Accord V6 in the past. Their speculation seemed to be proven […]

  • The Camaro’s Nurburgring Record Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That… Actually, It Don’t Mean a Thing, Period
    Another month, another fresh batch of Burgerkingring-related stupidity. This time it’s the General Motors PR machine and its ever-reliable Southern California appendix stirring the hype for the new Camaro ZL1 1LE, which obtained a seven-minutes-and-change time when driven by an engineer around the course. Nine times out of 10 I ignore this stuff entirely, but […]

  • Owners Will Need to Sign Devilish Contract Prior to Demon Possession
    As Hollywood writes it, when you make a deal with Satan, he bestows onto you whatever you covet most in exchange for your soul. However, there is usually some dark twist that ruins the overall experience long before you can settle into hell’s never-ending torment. If you ask him for money, it’ll be stolen from the […]

  • Lynk & CO Continues Promising ‘Brutally Simple’ Sales Strategy With No Haggling
    Geely may be pushing the Lynk & Co brand as the most connected and tech-savvy in existence but its senior vice president Alain Visser believes its sales strategy should remain simple. With cars supposedly rolling out in Europe and North America for 2019, Lynk & Co is only planning to offer an extremely limited number of […]

  • Kia Beats Everyone Again in J.D. Power Initial Quality Study
    The 2017 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study scores are in and Kia was awarded top honors for the second year in a row. The Kia Forte, Cadenza, Niro, Soul, and Sorento were all winners in their categories, outperforming opponents like the Chevrolet Cruze, Toyota Avalon, Kia Sportage (yep, another Kia), Ford C-Max, and Toyota Highlander, […]
