Life must be hard for a high-visibility, successful, small-lineup automotive brand like Mini. Everyone loves your products, but there just aren't enough for people to buy! Our hearts bleed for you, Mini.
The 997's seven years are now officially over. The new Porsche 911 — 991 to Jalopnik readers — is very much like all 911's over the past 48 years. Only a little better at everything.
Chevrolet took us to GM's Milford proving grounds for a look-don't-touch session with the company's new high-horsepower track animal — the Camaro ZL1. We didn't get to drive the prototypes on hand, but we did poke them with a stick and query engineers on their beastly spawn. Here's what we found out.
Remember small(ish) pickup trucks? Remember the Toyota Tacoma? Well this is very likely the 2012 model, due in October, by way of a leaked video retrieved by PickupTrucks.com. Note the new front end, harmonizing it with the latest, fifth-generation 4Runner.
Land Rover says a new, cleaner diesel engine for the Defender is EU5-compatible. This means that, while the long-awaited, all-new Defender has yet to emerge, the current model's won a short-term fight for survival — at least in Europe.
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.
Confirming what was already well known, General Motors said today it would add two new Cadillac models next year — the big XTS and the small ATS, a 3-Series fighter whose profile was shown in this chiaroscuro teaser.
The new Honda Civic is so mediocre even Consumer Reports, long a cheerleader for the Japanese econo-cruiser, dropped the redesigned 2012 model from its "recommended buy" list after the new model sunk to a rating of just 61 points on the magazine's 100-point scale. That means the newly-redesigned Honda Civic scored too…
Here's the 2012 Honda CR-V Concept, a dead-ringer for the production version (probably sans body work, blacked out lights, and aggressive wheels). The big question is whether or not the new CR-V will finally get an engine.
What happens when a bunch of journalists spend the day at the track, wearing the tread off the tires of a fast Jeep? They get worn down some more.
A few months ago, Jalopnik called on Chrysler to restore the sagging state of American manliness by building a Jeep Wrangler pickup. Today, Jeep finally announced the pricing and details for a kit version. While $5,499 ain't cheap, many good things aren't.
Mercedes-Benz has reportedly revealed its new C63 AMG Black Series Coupe in France, at a test event at Circuit Paul Ricard. Details are few, but some on hand say the new model is lighter (by 44 lbs) but less hardcore than the CLK Black Series it replaces, and even includes seating for four.
When it leaked that the 2012 Porsche 911 was getting a 7-speed manual transmission everyone immediately wondered how they were going to lay it out. We think we've got an answer.
We're getting our first glimpse of the 2012 Toyota Camry courtesy of Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda who says it will be the "best Camry ever" and will be a "remarkable car in terms of handling, safety and fuel economy." It's not like it could get much worse.
Behold, you lovers of highly-decorated, ridiculously expensive, German/French tea sets. It's the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport L'Or Blanc, a version of the recently updated Veyron, with porcelain fittings by Germany's Konigliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin (KPM). The one-off is reportedly worth $2.3 million.
Specs from the 2012 Porsche 911 either show a slight improvement for the new generation (codenamed 991) or mark the end times. Changes include new transmissions, longer wheelbase, launch control and and a more Panameraesque interior. Oh, and an optional hybrid drivetrain.
Stop laughing, this is serious. Toyota today announced a new, add-on performance pack for the Prius. The package mainly improves — now stop that! — the Prius's stance, with a lowering kit, 17" forged alloys and rear anti-sway bar. C'mon, I said no laughing, and I mean it.
As British sports car maker Morgan's revived, Harley-powered 3 Wheeler nears production, Morgan has given us this demonstration of what you can do in a parking lot with 110 hp moving just 1,100 lbs. Will every version come with goggles?
BMW's latest limited-edition M3 is mostly about weight savings achieved by substituting metal with carbon-fiber in several areas. Those areas include the hood and the seats. Oh, and there also a larger-displacement V8 to chaw on.
We already knew the Mini Cooper Coupe was coming to the U.S. market, but now we've got the first fully unclothed shots of the new two-seater from BMW's itty-bitty car division. And what we see with the camouflage off is the most frat boy-looking car we've ever seen.
