  • 2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS review: The spirit will move you

    We won’t be the first to say that some modern Porsche 911 Carreras have lost some of the early 911’s knife-edge, risk-fraught, tail-happy excitability — the inevitable outcome of demands for safety and space over time. As Porsche pursues an ever-broader base of customers, it now offers some 19…

  • 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S review: A Teutonic shift in sports cars

    Entering into a gilded fray this coming spring is the all-new, 503-hp Mercedes-AMG GT S (a less potent and “S”-less 456-hp variant will follow in mid-2016).

  • Motor Trend names the Volkswagen Golf/GTI its 2015 Car of the Year

    Since 1957, the scribes at Motor Trend have chosen a Car of the Year, often times to great tumult and dissent from the community at large. (I still recall puzzling over the Chevy Caprice Classic LTZ pick from 1991.) This morning, the magazine announced its winner for 2015, naming not just one car…

  • LaFerrari XX Will Have A Ridiculous Amount of Power

    Throughout the last decade, Ferrari has created a few special track only editions of some of the its fastest cars. Beginning with the Enzo FXX and ending with the 599XX, these cars defy most laws of physic and many wallets. Additionally, when Ferrari starts to talk about building more race cars,…

  • A 40-mph electric recumbent tricycle that changes your commute forever

    I’m sitting in a bucket seat, wearing a full-face helmet, going so fast that my instinct for self-preservation is telling me to hit the brakes. I’ve been in this situation before, in cars. But right now there’s no bodywork around me, no windshield, no steering wheel. I’m riding the Outrider 422…

  • 2015 Cadillac Escalade review: The fellowship of the bling

    It was 1963 when blues musician Tony Glover found a song manuscript lay on the table at his friend’s apartment. “The Times They Are a-Changin,” it read. He skimmed through the lyrics: "Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call." Glover didn’t buy it, and turned to Bob Dylan and laid forth…

  • The 2015 Yahoo Autos Green Vehicle of the Year: BMW i3

    The most radical vehicle to emerge from any automaker in the past year — and likely the past decade — the BMW i3 looks and drives like nothing else on the road. Call it a hatchback hit with an ugly stick; call it an expensive way to travel 80 miles on a charge, but you'll still miss the point of…

  • The 2015 Yahoo Autos Luxury Car of the Year: Mercedes-Benz C-Class

    The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class can fairly be described as the car Mercedes wants to build, not the car Mercedes needs to build. But it wouldn’t have scored our luxury car award if it didn’t bring the goods, too.

  • Driving the 2015 Ford Mustang, the pony car learning all-new tricks

    When releasing a new version of an iconic muscle car, appeasing the masses is all but impossible. Some will believe that the ‘60s and early ‘70s were the only muscle cars worth bothering with, and that today’s versions need more swagger. The other side of the fence calls modern muscle cars too…

  • 1971 Opel GT Needs a Loving Home

Not so in the case of this lovely 1971 Opel GT, which is currently up for sale for a relatively affordable price. The eldest of you might remember the tiny Opel as […]

  • A week with the Bentley Continental GT V8 S Convertible, cool as ice

    Here’s how this typically works: When a car reviewer gets to pick a vehicle up for review at an airport, he or she usually heads to some odd off-site lot where the keys are delivered with the fanfare reserved for buying a can of Pringles. When I arranged to drive a 2014 Bentley Continental GT V8 S…
