Aston Martin's CEO Says The Cygnet Is Dead Because The iQ Is Dying

Earlier this month, we learned of the passing of one of the most unloved cars of our time, the Aston Martin Cygnet. It failed miserably and now will become the subject of a Used Car Face Off in 2035. But the Toyota/Scion iQ could be close behind, if you listen to the Aston boss anyway. » 10/27/13 2:21pm 10/27/13 2:21pm

Holy Crap Scion Might Be Working On A Four Door Shooting Brake FR-S

There is hope after all for Scion if this is true, but you'd better pray hard that this news of a rear-wheel-drive, under $30,000 shooting brake based on the FR-S is legitimate and not just a sick, twisted rumor just to get our hopes up. » 10/11/13 12:05pm 10/11/13 12:05pm

Please Join Me In Punching Everyone In This Scion Ad Right In The Face

For some reason, every time I seem to turn on the televisior this Scion ad is on. And for some other reason, this commercial makes me want to scan myself into the TV, Tron-style, and punch every one of those goddamn Scion-owning smug-ass rhythm-talkers right in their stupid pretty faces. » 7/28/13 10:00am 7/28/13 10:00am

Toyota 86. It will be the end of me

The day the newswires lit up with details of the new back-to-basics sports car from Toyota was the day I wanted to own one. I’d been so disheartened with the state of the automotive industry and the type of cars it was making for so many years, I’d all but switched off. Driven by marketing departments rather than… » 6/05/13 11:31pm 6/05/13 11:31pm

Watch Legend Tiff Needell Spank My Wife's Scion Around A Track

Tiff Needell is a man used to driving some very serious, very fast cars. It's amazing to watch him in action. But everyone's probably getting pretty sick of seeing him drive finely-tuned, expensive sports cars all the time, right? It's time he took something else on the track. Something that looks more like a washing… » 4/22/13 12:40pm 4/22/13 12:40pm

Will It Baby: 2013 Scion iQ

I felt like I was having things a bit too easy Will It Baby-wise recently — a car with an extra door just for kid-loading, a huge, spacious truck — so this time when I picked a car to try I decided to really make it tough. So, with that in mind, I set out to try and find the absolute smallest car I could cram a… » 12/26/12 9:00am 12/26/12 9:00am

Jeremy Clarkson Calls The Toyobaru 'One Of The Best Cars I've Driven In…

Underneath it all, Jeremy Clarkson is a car guy. He gets it. He loves the Toyobaru almost as much as we do. A sports car balanced towards driving joy, not towards pure numbers. The numbers thing, the how-fast-can-we-drag-race-a-bunch-of-cars, is the realm of people who think more is better, not better is better. The… » 11/22/12 2:00pm 11/22/12 2:00pm

2013 Scion FR-S: Will It Baby?

Having kids affects, or probably should affect, pretty much every part of your life. Everything from how patient you are to the grade of heroin you use or the car you choose to own and drive. Common wisdom likes to hammer the idea that the only baby-worthy cars are SUVs, Minivans, wagons, and similar vehicles. I don't… » 7/24/12 10:30am 7/24/12 10:30am

Does The Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S Need A Turbo?

Two of the most acclaimed cars of the past year have to be the Toyota/Subaru twins, the BRZ and the FR-S. While they aren't the fastest or most luxurious cars on the road, they have a fantastic chassis, great gearbox, and some sublime handling that you can drift at the flick of a wrist. » 7/20/12 12:20pm 7/20/12 12:20pm
