When the Reatta was introduced, it was just missing one thing: A convertible model. Well, for 1990, that one thing is no longer missing! The stylish top of the convertible blends seamlessly with the body. It's basically a coupe.
We tend to pile hate onto minivans, but now that crossovers have outpaced them as the Most Unadventurous Vehicles On The Road, maybe it’s time for a reappraisal.
Last week we showed you the first photos of the 2014 Cadillac CTS. Well, Cadillac kind of just reconfirmed the image we showed you on their own Facebook page.
Earlier today we showed you the story of Corbin Goodwin and his rat rod Mazda RX7. While it looks really freaking cool now, this car was a two year labor of love that started in 2010. This is how it all came together.
Taken at face value, this case of a guy going apeshit with a machete on a car parked in his driveway sounds insane. But there's more to it than that. The enraged, machete wielding man's wife and another gentleman were in that car, and he apparently disapproved of their being together.
Suzuki, the Japanese small car maker, has finally coughed and sputtered its last breath in these here United States. Despite a sales high of over 100,000 cars in 2007, the company could barely sell any over the course of 2012.
Morgan Stanley's North America autos team led by Adam Jonas is optimistic about the U.S. auto market in 2013.
Entering the turn, aboard a NISMO 370Z, I stabbed the clutch, hit the gas, and turned a hard left. The backend pivoted heroically, the rear tires bellowed smoke, and I felt like the most badass motherfucker in history.
You might not think that doing things outside when it's more than 20 degrees below zero (Farenheit) is a good idea. But chances are you aren't Norwegian.
Formula One drivers are famously compact little guys and tall drivers are definitely in the minority. At six feet tall, Nico Hulkenberg is one of the taller ones. That means he has bigger feet. And those big feet seem to be too large for his new car.
The fact that I'm admiting fake wind-up keys work — from an aesthetic standpoint — at all astounds even me. They're a bit cheesy. But if they're to be done, they should be done correctly, not slapped on the back of a car at an odd angle, like some afterthought refrigerator magnet.
Remember that video of the Ferrari Enzo skidding and hooning around a country estate? Here it is in slow-mo, infinite-loop glory.
Spend a few minutes with any gear-head and the topic of conversation almost always involves cars and inevitably veers to the fun things to do with them. Drag strip trips and track days are commonly discussed, an autocross for the cone counters, car shows for the paint buffs, but one of the more fun things to do is…
This Benz probably isn't the commander-in-chief's covert set of wheels, but it's a pretty smooth tribute to the man nonetheless. But we have one suggestion: For the Obama Edition, perhaps a bigger Benz would be a more fitting car to name after the leader of the free world? Maybe a G-wagen? (Hat tip to Ilya!)
I love mountains. And not just on foot or with a pair of skis. To drive up or down (and through) them is also a fantastic adventure! Sometimes, you can't even shift above third gear, but speed is almost irrelevant on steep and curvy roads. It's all about cornering and precision there, while you also enjoy the fresh…
What do you do when the trackday is over? Drift the recovery truck!
Unless you carry a flamethrower, there is no perfect way to get your car out of the snow. I managed to figure out pretty much the worst way.
