The 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28 Can Actually Kick All Of Your Asses

Designers might make a sexy looking car, but engineers make cars that you actually want to drive. Engineers made the 2014 Camaro Z/28. And it's transformed the Camaro for the better in every conceivable way. That means this is a modern Camaro that's actually as good as Camaro fanboys pretend it is. » 4/15/14 3:06pm Tuesday 3:06pm

The 1950's Version Of An Economy Car Is Kind Of Terrible

The Nash Metropolitan is an odd car. It was sold as an ideal second car due to its size at a time when every other manufacturer subscribed to the "bigger is better" philosophy of car design. But was it the practical choice it claimed to be? » 4/11/14 3:40pm 4/11/14 3:40pm

2015 Subaru WRX STI: The Jalopnik Review

You throw the 2015 Subaru WRX STI into a corner. In days of yore, the front end wouldn't bite and you'd start to wash wide. Subaru had developed the recipe for understeer. But this new STI... It bites. It turns in. This is a Porsche 911 fighter for a third of the price. Oh, and one of the best new cars you can buy… » 4/08/14 2:20pm 4/08/14 2:20pm

The 18 Things You Learn Driving The McLaren 650S In The Rain

The first thing you learn is that it doesn't usually rain in Spain, but when it does, it's the sort of rain that requires you to be more Captain Nemo than Ayrton Senna. And that's when you figure out how a McLaren 650S is as a submarine, not a car. » 4/02/14 12:00pm 4/02/14 12:00pm

Dinan S3-R BMW 1M: The Jalopnik Review

My best guess is that Dinan is actually part of some radical environmental group dedicated to eliminating all private car ownership. That's the only reason I can think of to explain why they keep making these amazing machines designed to remove your legal ability to drive, like this Dinan-ized 1M. » 4/01/14 3:00pm 4/01/14 3:00pm

2015 Porsche 918 Spyder: The Jalopnik Review

If Ferdinand Piëch hadn't set his engineers on a course for 1,000 horsepower and 250 mph (Hello? Bugatti Veyron?), sports-car science projects like the Porsche 918 Spyder might not exist today. But he did, and it does. What's the 918 like to drive? Let's find out. » 3/31/14 12:30pm 3/31/14 12:30pm

Why The 2015 Chrysler 200 Deserves Your Attention

Super Bowl XLV. Eminem. Imported From Detroit. American grit. Never say die. Gets me right in the feels every single time. There was only one problem with that ad: The Chrysler 200 was terrible. It was a car the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 is trying to make up for. » 3/25/14 3:00pm 3/25/14 3:00pm

The Jalopnik Review Leaderboard

While consumer journals might rank cars for their durability, and safety experts might put them on a list from safest to most dangerous, here at Jalopnik we decided to create a ranking system for cars based solely on what an enthusiast might like. Behold, here's the master ranking list of all the cars we've given the… » 3/24/14 2:00pm 3/24/14 2:00pm

2014 Mercedes-Benz S550 4Matic: The Jalopnik Review

The entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel in New York City is a sloping downhill left hand turn. Radar cruise control and steering assist is on in the S550. I take my hands off the wheel. Instead of careening into a wall, the big Merc turns the wheel on its own and cruises into the tunnel. Holy crap. Welcome to the future. » 3/24/14 1:20pm 3/24/14 1:20pm

2014 Chevy Spark: The Jalopnik Review

If you'd have told me in 2004 I'd be driving a tiny Korean-built GM product around NYC in 2014 I'd have guessed I lost a bet. If you'd have told me I was looking forward to the experience, I'd have thanked you from coming back from the future to warn me. The Chevy Spark is yet another example of the difference a decade … » 3/18/14 12:20pm 3/18/14 12:20pm

The 2015 Audi A3 Is Premium, Tidy, Fun, And Not A Hipster At All

The 2015 Audi A3 is not soy milk. The 2015 Audi A3 is not the Pizza Underground. The 2015 Audi A3 is not even a fixie. But while its hipster marketing plan may not jibe with most of the actual car, there is one thing that should appeal to its ironic target demographic. It is very retro, in the best way possible. » 3/17/14 12:20pm 3/17/14 12:20pm

The Volkswagen Beetle GSR Is A Surprising Head Turner

When I picked up the Volkswagen Beetle GSR press car last week I didn't think much about the attention I'd get. I'd just driven in an Aston Martin Vanquish and, unsurprisingly, there were dudes snapping necks left and right at that tasty carbon fiber-rimmed beauty. The Beetle did even better. » 3/13/14 3:00pm 3/13/14 3:00pm

2009 Koenigsegg CCXR Edition: The Jalopnik 180 MPH Runway Blast

Christian von Koenigsegg is standing next to a 2009 CCXR Edition outside of his factory. We're about to head to his company's runway test track for some photos. He looks at me. "Do you want to drive?" I said yes before he finished saying "do." » 2/27/14 1:20pm 2/27/14 1:20pm

The Sadomasochistic Joy Of Driving A $300K Aston Martin In New York

Every onlooker gawks with obvious jealousy at the curvy rolling statue Aston Martin created and then, for some reason, loaned to me for a weekend. Jealous of what, exactly? I'm frankly terrified of having to dodge a million ankle-deep potholes and trying not to scratch the carbon fiber bumper against a cab. The Aston… » 2/25/14 2:00pm 2/25/14 2:00pm

2015 Subaru WRX STI: The Big Winged Rude Blue Rally Machine You Deserve

The big wing. It's the first thing you notice. It's like Subaru mounted a billboard on the back of the 2015 Subaru WRX STI that simultaneously creates downforce and repels women of all ages. No fat chicks, fat downforce. This is not a car that will get you laid, not that it really matters. » 2/17/14 10:00am 2/17/14 10:00am
