Woman Shows Up For Test Drive In Stolen Car Then Steals Another Car

If you would like to drive several different cars for free there are two ways you can do it. You can become an auto journalist and manufactures will give you press cars almost every week. Or you can follow the model of a Tennesee woman who stole a car, test drove another car, then stole the second vehicle. » 11/23/14 10:18am Sunday 10:18am

First Drive: Mercedes-AMG GT Isn't A 911 Fighter, It's More Than That

I have a problem. I've never managed to keep the throttle floored the entire stretch of Laguna Seca's front straight in anything over 500 horsepower. It's practically my home track, but as soon as I start climbing that crest, self-preservation kicks in and I lift. Every. Damn. Time. That changed in the Mercedes-AMG GT. » 11/12/14 9:47am 11/12/14 9:47am

The Eight Speed Automatic Corvette Stingray Does Not Suck At All

Last week, the General Motors company sent me one of their Corvette Stingrays. Only unlike every other Stingray I've driven so far, this one had two pedals instead of three. Normally, this outcome would plunge me into a deep existential crisis, like when I drove that automatic Mazda Miata over the summer. This time… » 10/30/14 12:05pm 10/30/14 12:05pm

The Charger Hellcat Is The Most American/Insane Car You Can Buy

There's really only two things you need to know about the 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat: it may be the most American car you can buy right now, and it's absolutely, unrepentantly clamshit insane. The idea of a well-appointed four-door family car with enough power to liquify everyone you love is crazy. And wonderful. But… » 10/29/14 12:05pm 10/29/14 12:05pm

Is The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster As Good As The Coupe?

Are there too many variants of good sports cars? Does a great coupe always need a convertible version? Are open-top cars less worthy of factory performance tuning than coupes? These are questions that haunt the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, whose raffish charms as a magnificent, snarling tin-top have been ported… » 10/21/14 12:01pm 10/21/14 12:01pm

Dodge Challenger Scat Pack: American Muscle That Will Save Your Soul

It just so happens that the house I moved to in Austin is near this elementary school. And it just so happens that I would drive past this elementary school in a 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, and on more than one occasion it caused the kids at recess to turn and point at the muscle car, their jaws dropped in… » 10/16/14 12:00pm 10/16/14 12:00pm

2015 Volvo V60 T6 R-Design: The Jalopnik Review

Every year in America, the president issues a State of the Union address in which he (or she, to be fair and forward-looking) takes stock of the political landscape and lays out his (or her) agenda. Since this is Jalopnik, I think we should issue a State of the Wagon address, and assess where the 2015 Volvo V60 fits… » 10/10/14 1:26pm 10/10/14 1:26pm

We Drove The 2015 Ford F-150 Off-Road Like Wild Texans, It Got Us Home

Texas scrublands, outside San Antonio: Wind dances with wisps of grass as somebody waters the dirt. Something starts poking pinpricks in the calm... An airplane? Nah; five cackling maniacs running a 2015 Ford F-150 toward the fresh mudpatch at full tilt. A mudpatch somebody was about to be wearing. » 10/09/14 1:13pm 10/09/14 1:13pm
