STaSIS Signature Series Audi S5 Challenge Edition: First Drive

The last time I blew past the limits of my driving ability in a big howling V8 and hooned into a turn way too fast, I was at Altamont Speedway and I spun out in a most dramatic fashion. Now I'm in a car worth 110 times as much, leadfooting it down the hill at Infineon, right at the Chute, and I'm totally into that… » 12/08/08 1:00pm 12/08/08 1:00pm

Jackie Chan Shows Us The Joy Of Minivan Hoonage: Volkswagen Caddy

The sequence is pretty straightforward: A China-market VW Caddy Panel Van rolls off its carrier and- driverless- drives away going against the flow of traffc, sowing chaos and death in its wake.

Our pal Punkey zapped us the results of TopGear's awards for 2005, including runners-up.

Jalopnik to Join in the Car of the Year Festivities

Here on planet Jalopnik, gravity doesn t suck quite as much as it does elsewhere. When we decided to choose a Car of the Year, we knew our award could never share the pseudo-objective gravitas of our distinguished colleagues attaboys. (Or, as Farago put it, fuck that shit.) So, after a particularly perspicacious puddle … » 11/29/05 1:02pm 11/29/05 1:02pm

Bleak October Challenges Cadillac's '05 Sales Gains

Woe to T.S. Eliot for our wrangling of his verse for our own purposes, but for Cadillac, October may be the cruelest month; poor sales mixing memory and desire, stirring. (Yikes. Sorry, T.S. Next time we'll keep our trousers rolled.) Double-digit declines for October are now casting the GM brand's sales gains for 2005… » 11/23/05 10:43am 11/23/05 10:43am
