While at the LA Auto Show I had the chance to talk to the very poetically-named Solomon Song, lead designer of the Lincoln MKZ. I'll admit that we at Jalopnik haven't had the most confidence in Lincoln as of late, but I did find Song engaging, easy to talk to, and very forthright about the car he's designed, and the…
First, let's just get this out of the way. This V8 micro-Beetle is likely the Best In Show of the Los Angeles International Auto Show. Incredible power-to-weight ratio, classic styling, and, because it doesn't look like there's any way to actually get in and drive it, infinite fuel economy and zero emissions, since I…
What did you say to that sweet, adorable Beluga whale that's embedded in the new Acura RLX's dash? What did you say to it? Look how sad that poor whale is. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
Acura just unveiled their new flagship sedan, the RLX, and there's two things you'll notice right away: it's kind of boring looking, but, damn, does it have a lot of headlights. Like eight per side. Sure, they're small LED units and not the colossal sealed-beams of yore, but still, it's some pretty aggressive…
Enthusiasts love diesel engines for their massive torque and non-hybrid-laden efficiency. Enthusiasts generally don't like the Porsche Cayenne because it's not a 911. Heads will surely explode, then, with the announcement that the 2013 Porsche Cayenne will finally be offered in the U.S. with the company's 3.0-liter…
Shockingly, Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's staff was pretty silent about our car guy challenge last week, but that's okay. I'm not going to take it personally.
Don't you hate when you have so much money that everything you say inadvertently draws attention to your staggering wealth? Bet Mitt Romney does. Today, while giving a speech to what appears to be 18 people in a massive stadium in Detroit, Romney said.
UPDATED! Ford's not pleased with the Chevy truck super bowl ad that implies Ford trucks aren't built tough enough to survive the Mayan apocalypse. How upset are they? They're so pissed the automaker's sent letters to both GM and NBC asking them to pull the ad from tonight's big game.
The Camaro ZL1 is built to be run hard, no doubt about it. "Track-ready" is the word of the day from the engineering team. (And we're out at Bondurant to prove it., more on that later) But it takes an extra-large bucket of stones to use a competitor's owner's manual against it.
What if you could trade the vehicle you drive every day for absolutely any vehicle in the entire world? Before you figure out where you are going to keep your (insert dream car here), even in this extremely hypothetical situation there is a catch—you have to use your new vehicle to do absolutely everything you…
A quick moving witness managed to capture this video footage of a lightly disguised 2012 Porsche 911 prototype. Codenamed the 991, this new 911 was spotted in Stuttgart, Germany, the home of all things Porsche. We won't get to see the final version of the new Porsche until next month's Frankfurt Auto Show.
The just-released F1 2012 calendar shows the U.S. F1 Grand Prix will be held on June 17th, 2012 in Austin, Texas at the new Circuit of the Americas. No competing football or music festivals, but still hot as balls.
Ford Racing released this video of the Boss 302S testing at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway. According to the video the car hit over 150 MPH while pulling over 1.5 Gs. Only 50 of the race only Mustangs will be made when the car goes into production sometime in the second half of 2011.
Buyers of the 2012 Hyundai Genesis will be screaming "Five-oh-Oh-OH!" when they check the box marked "R-Spec" on their ordering guide. Like the R-Spec'ed Genesis Coupe the Genesis Sedan R-Spec's on a performance mission, but this time it's carrying a 429-hp Tau 5.0-liter V8.
The current C63 AMG's no slouch, but the old-style snout's quickly seemed out-of-place. The slight enhancement to the front of the 2012 Mercedes C63 AMG brings so much crease you'll slice your cornea if you stare for too long.
The 2012 Nissan GT-R will rip off a 0-to-60 mph run in an astounding 2.9 seconds, according to a company test at Japan's Senda Hi-Land raceway. The outgoing GT-R? 3.3 seconds.
