Is This eBay Ferrari Testarossa Super Rad or Just Ugly?  Jun 1st, 2015 
These two eBay-listed Ferrari Testarossas are quite similar, except for that fact that one is red and other is the color of the vinyl seats in your grandma’s 1977 Ford LTD.

2015 BMW 435i xDrive Tested: In BMW-Speak, It’s the Two-Door, Six-Cylinder, AWD (Actual) Coupe  Jun 1st, 2015 
It would be too easy to kick off this evaluation of the all-wheel-drive BMW 435i xDrive coupe with a snarky quip about how the 3- and 4-series lineups have ballooned to comically crowded levels, but then you already knew that. There are sedans, sedans that pretend to be coupes, wagons, hatchbacks that look like SUVs, […]

Subaru Mulling Six Names for 7-Passenger Crossover—We’ll Take the Man-Horse Option  Jun 1st, 2015 
Despite the deep and gnawing Yankee hunger for CUVs, Subaru’s Tribeca [above] never sold in great numbers, even while the rest of the company’s mainstream product line pushed the niche automaker past Volkswagen in American sales.

When Mazda launched the first Miata, it made no secret of its intention to clone the Lotus Elan, minus the puddle of oil on the garage floor.

SRT teased its wild-looking addition to the Vision Gran Turismo collection of sci-fi concept cars for Gran Turismo 6.

2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid Driven: Making It Easier To Be Green  May 29th, 2015 
Although hybrids have been gathering dust in new-car showrooms of late, carmakers can’t afford to ignore them, for several reasons.

Two, environmental and fuel-economy regulations are pushing automakers in that direction. And finally, most […]

The 1964 Honda S600 was an engineering tour de force, a teensy-weensy roadster with a high-revving, motorcycle-inspired engine and chain drive. It was completely alien on 1960s roads, especially when you consider the broad, big-inch bruisers that largely dominated U.S. highways at the time. And while traditionalists might see Matt Brown’s S600 as a bastardization of a […]
