Oliver Schmidt, the head of Volkswagen’s U.S. regulatory compliance office from 2014 to 2015, is expected to plead guilty next month for his role in the Dieselgate mess, a court official said on Tuesday.
Today, I became aware of the Suzuki Boosterjet, Suzuki’s name for its line of small, direct-injection turbocharged gasoline engines, first a 1.4 liter last year and now a 1.0. Unquestionably, it’s a wonderful name. But is it the best?
I think it’s safe to say there’s no greater rivalry in the history of motorsport than the one between the Fiat Multipla and the Chevrolet Corvette. Finally, that rivalry has been settled, with a battle on the Nurburgring, and, as most of you probably guessed, we have a winner: the Multipla. Specifically, a 1999 Fiat…
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is one of our favorite cars of all time for glorious cheap speed. You don’t need a pricey luxury sedan to go fast in a practical four-door. You need an Evo. Maybe not this 2006 Evo IX MR, though. It’s going to sell for six figures because it only has nine miles on its odometer.

Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know as you prepare for another beautiful day under the sun. Get happy.
For years now IndyCar has competed with a spec car that looks like it’s wearing bloomers, a too-big, low-fi, Playmobil version of what an open wheeler should look like. I have tried to care about it. I have failed. But hey, for the first time in years, there’s an IndyCar that actually looks good.
It seems very likely that the party is over for one of the most fun and affordable hatchbacks on the U.S. market, the Ford Fiesta ST. The current one, soon to be replaced by a new Fiesta that America probably will not get, puts out about 200 horsepower and has a starting price of around $21,000. With rebates and…
All the teens agree: the MGB GT is better with a V8!
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
Update: Red sold out, but now the blue model is available for the same price.
The seller of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Corvair says it was once owned by the former wife of heavyweight boxing champion, Buster Douglas. We’ll have to see if its price makes it a total knock out.
It took awhile, but the engineers behind modern sports cars seem to have finally figured out that people like to drive versions of vehicles with the roof down. McLaren was even smart enough to plan ahead for its 570S Spider, which never even needed a roof.
Jaguar has introduced a new high-performance model of its XJ sedan with the XJR575, which has been painted to look like a submarine. It can now max out at 186 mph in just 44 seconds, which is pretty quick for a submarine.
I like rallying. I co-drive when I have the time. But I tend to think that actually driving in a rally would be more stressful than I’d like. Co-driving is easy. All I have to do is read some directions and then I end up on a podium. Driving driving means I could hit a tree and it’d be my fault. Not for me.
