It doesn’t make a lot of sense that the very pinnacle of driving would be a box-on-wheels old Volvo on a patch of dirt and ice in rural New Hampshire. But I don’t need life to make sense.
A CarMax employee, 43 year-old Warren Smale, was killed when the Corvette being test-driven by 28 year-old Alex Demetro crashed into a tree on Tuesday, at a CarMax dealership in Ontario, California.
Many race tracks host non-racing events on-site to bump up their revenue stream, but Lime Rock Park’s Grand Weekend finally thought to integrate some automotive fun into a music and comedy festival. In addition to all the shows, you can test drive luxury cars and ride along in supercars on the circuit itself.
The Ferrari F12tdf debuted at Mugello Circuit in Italy just over a week ago, and Autocar’s Matt Prior took it out for a test drive to give us a bit of a closer look at the new 770-horsepower beast.
A few months ago I traveled from New York City to Buffalo on a quest for the best chicken wings anywhere. I took a 2015 Lexus RC 350 AWD to get there because I needed something that could gobble up the miles without any drama while being comfortable. The thing is, I didn’t need to go that far. Here’s why.
Flooring it in a 550 horsepower, all-wheel drive Jaguar F-Type R is hard to describe, what with your brain pressing against the inside of your skull, your eyes bumping up against their sockets.
There are two kinds of oversteer: there’s the kind that’s fun and there’s the kind that signals Code Brown.
Who gets to do burnouts in the middle of Manhattan? Who gets to stand on full ABS stops on empty side streets? Who gets to do all this and more without anyone noticing? The Toyota Avalon driver.
The Porsche Cayman GT4 is a car we've been waiting for since the Clinton administration. Now we've driven it. Can it possibly live up to our expectations? Let's find out.
Here's the weird thing you might not know about Consumer Reports. Not only do they have an incredible test track, they're also all better drivers than any self-respecting bunch of automotive journalists should be. So let CR Auto Test Director Jake Fisher and Jalopnik EIC Matt Hardigree show you how to hoon.
Here was the plan: take a $112,000 Mercedes E63 AMG S Wagon, a Subaru STI, a BMW 228i, and a 1973 Volkswagen Baja Bug, and blast sideways on a snow-covered private test track hidden in the woods of Connecticut. Simple, right?
I knew I didn't have long with the Subaru BRZ, a morning at most. So I got up early and pointed north to the best backroads I know.
There's a particular moment you have, I think everyone has, when you start your first trip on the road in a GT-R. The transmission clunks in second, the rear end emits expensive-sounding rumblings, and the whole body shudders. You think to yourself, isn't this kind of terrible? Here's how I came to love that grumbling…
The Ford Fiesta, even with the 1.0-liter three cylinder, isn't the perfect car for everything. For instance, there are times when a Jeep would be better.
Tesla was in the middle of a three-day Model S test drive program in West Des Moines, Iowa when it was forced to cancel the final day of the event. The local dealers association ratted out the automaker to the state's Department of Transportation because only licensed "dealers" are allowed to offer test drives. Sigh.
The way people talk about the Porsche 911 approaches cult status, which always put me off towards the car. But a few months back I got to drive one for the first time - a 1969 911T - and I get it now.
From Truck Yeah!: Despite all the nose-thumbing we enthusiasts do at Acura these days, there is one thing they remain very, very good at: selling SUVs. Specifically, this SUV, the Acura MDX. They sold some 53,000 copies of the MDX in 2013, and they continue to fly off dealer lots this year. Many of you may read this…
The huge V8 fills my ears. Branches whip close. I come over a rise and there it is again — that little white box of a BMW howling and squealing and clipping into the next turn. I'm in one of the biggest, beefiest cars on sale and I'm chasing one of the most nimble cars in recent memory. Makes sense, right?
I remember staring at it on hot summer afternoons, on one of the shady blocks on the other side of the train tracks from my middle school. The leaves cast green shadows on its long white fenders. The whole world disappeared in its grill. A 1962 Chrysler.
Look at the marketing and the name and you'd think the Chevy SS is nothing but a Corvette-engined mulletmobile good for nothing but burnouts. As it turns out, that's not what the car is like at all. It's something more endearing than that.
