What the heck is that? If you’ve been reading TheCarConnection.com for most of its online life — more than ten years online at this writing — you’ll recognize this very early logo. We forgive you if you think it looks like a car towing a computer. Back in the early days of the Web, towing a computer was better than not owning one at all. And, well…we were writers, not tech gurus and certainly not highly-paid illustrators.

Times change, and so does the ethos of the Web. TheCarConnection.com is changing too, and in the next few weeks you’ll discover more of what we have in mind for the most comprehensive re-think in TCC’s history.

You’ve seen some of the changes so far. We launched an iPhone application that gives you an idea of the direction our new site will take. The clever readers will notice some minor tweaks to road tests this year. Recently we put our award-winning newsletters on hiatus while we come up with an even better way to deliver the car reviews and news you want directly to your inbox.

There’s far more to come. We can’t spill all the beans today, but when the changes start coming, you’ll find reviews that are the most comprehensive on the Web. You’ll get more photos, great pricing and shopping information, globe-spanning auto show coverage and a slick new design that’s easy to navigate. If I told you more, I’d be out of a job, and I’m no good at pulling espressos.

While our new reviews, blogs and interface hide behind a firewall, we’ll be posting less to the current site. We’ll make this down time as quick as possible. In the meantime, please do stay tuned — everyone at the Car Advisory Network is proud of what we’re ready to launch soon, and what we have planned for the next year.
