Meet The Peugeot Quasar: A Group B Supercar For The Road

Back when Group B rally cars were running virtually unrestricted, faster than sense or safety, newscasters called them 'supercars.' What if you took that Group B tech and applied it to a traditional supercar concept? » 3/20/15 6:00pm 3/20/15 6:00pm

How Would Our World Be Different If This Golf Prototype Had Made It?

Imagine, if you will, an alternate 1973. A world like ours, but with one exception: Volkswagen selected this sliding-door Golf for production instead of the conventional, swing-out-door one. How would that world then differ, from the cascading effects of this one decision? » 2/09/15 9:30pm 2/09/15 9:30pm

My 1988 Peugeot 205 GTi, a lot of blood sweat and happy tears

Mr. Orlove forced me to become a Peugeot 205 GTi owner. Thanks Raphael. Really, thank you. I can now say from experience they're truly great cars. I bought mine in August this year, a car that provided a solid basis but which needed a lot of love. And love it received.

Peugeot-Citröen May Be Coming Back To The US In 2020

I'm sure there's a certain chunk of our readership who's spit-taking Orangina at the screen and crushing their croque-monsieurs in their hands in barely-contained glee. The brand we'd get would be DS, not exactly Citröen or Peugot, but it'd still be great to see some French iron back on our shores. If it happens. » 10/07/14 11:42am 10/07/14 11:42am

Which French Cars Would Do Well In America?

This week we learned PSA Peugeot Citroën has an ambitious plan to return to the U.S. and permanently dethrone Germany and Japan as the manufacturers of America's favorite imports. (Okay, none of that is really true.) What cars should they bring over? » 4/26/14 3:00pm 4/26/14 3:00pm

Peugeot And Citroën Want To Return To The U.S., Maybe

What's French for hoonage? I don't know for two reasons: I don't speak French, and PSA Peugeot Citroën hasn't sold cars here since the early 1990s.

French Cars Might Work In The U.S. Now, If They Ever Make A Return

A return to the U.S. market is probably the last thing on the minds of Peugeot-Citroen and Renault. There have been no new French cars for sale here in almost 25 years.
