Listen To The Pernicious Purr Of A Novitec-Modified Ferrari

The Ferrari FF is definitely, hands-down, the best shooting brake that Ferrari makes today. But if you could make it even better, you might hand it over to the nutters over at Novitec for some fiddling. And the resulting V12 exhaust note will give you shivers. Seriously, just listen to it when it starts up. » 10/25/14 1:04pm 38 minutes ago

Porsche Might Be Developing A Turbo V12 For Vladimir Putin

Lotus Builds Automatic Exige, Solution To All Of Company's Problems

Nobody buys the Lotus Exige. Well, pretty much nobody. Definitely nobody in America, since poor Lotus doesn't sell it here anymore, but close to nobody buys them in Europe, either. Since there is no conceivable reason for that, Lotus is now throwing an automatic in the Exige. Yes, a torque-converter automatic. » 10/24/14 9:55pm Yesterday 9:55pm

​This Valet App Might Be The Next Best Thing To Uber

Parking in most major cities – and San Francisco, in particular – sucks. More often then not, when the wife and I head into the city for a night out, we park somewhere cheap and Uber our way around. It's both idiotic and costly, but it beats circling for a space for 45 minutes and then walking 10 blocks. That's why… » 10/24/14 9:25pm Yesterday 9:25pm

eBay Challenge: The Best Classics For Less Than $10,000

We all know what $10k will get you on the new car market - a big fat nothing. So I propose a challenge, in which you use that money on a vehicle that was made in a simpler time - when cars ran on leaded fuel, seat belts were optional at the dealer and the only traction control available was your right foot. » 10/24/14 7:39pm Yesterday 7:39pm

Meet The Car That's The VW Beetle's Oldest And Most Direct Ancestor

I've written before about Paul Schilperood's remarkable book that makes the case that the VW Beetle was largely developed based on the ideas of the Jewish auto journalist Josef Ganz and not Ferdinand Porsche, as has been commonly thought.
