Woman Wins $90 Million Dollar Lottery, Buys Really Boring Car  

As car enthusiasts, we all have what I call "the list." The list of dream cars we would buy if we got some massive windfall of money. I know the first two cars on my list are an E63 wagon and probably a 911 GTS. A Washington state woman who won a $90 million dollar jackpot had no such list, and bought a Subaru. » 12/08/14 8:26am 12/08/14 8:26am

40 Years Of Not Getting Stuck: A Subaru AWD History

Subaru's now famous Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is 40 years old. Contrary to what you might expect, the first couple of Subarus using it were not turbocharged racecars fighting against the mud and snow but rather affordable coupes and family cars in need of some extra grip.

2009 Subaru Forester, Part Two

Exterior Design: ***

The original Forester design sought to stuff an SUV into downscaled packaging more palatable to the food co-op set. The 2009 model abandons its predecessors' upright, boxy vibe for something closer to a streamlined crossover approach. Sleeker, yet still oozing functionality. And, of course, the… » 3/11/08 12:20pm 3/11/08 12:20pm

2009 Subaru Forester, Part One

Is it kismet? I suspect so, as over a few short weeks, a couple of themes have begun to emerge in our Jalopnik Reviews. First, Hardigree gets his hands on a Dodge Caliber SRT4 and loses a tire. Not two weeks later, I voyage to sublime Laguna Beach, and then to Catalina Island for some hoontastic off-roadin' in the… » 3/10/08 12:30pm 3/10/08 12:30pm

2009 Forester Interior Pic Leaked

The WRXers over at the NASIOC forums managed to snag the first picture we've seen of the 2009 Subura Forester interior. If this is to be believed, it looks like the Forester is going to get the autoshift as an option. Given the nav screen we're guessing this is XS or limited trim. The dash seems to maintain the three… » 12/07/07 2:45pm 12/07/07 2:45pm

Subaru Forester, Next-Gen?

On the road that dare not straight its name, one car stands out. Actually, it's a prototype spies say hearkens a new Subaru Forester with fewer right angles than today's model and a longer wheelbase than the current Outback.
