Video: Our Ford Fiesta ST Gets the First COBB Stage 2 Kit, Will Blow…

We love our Fiesta ST. It's light, fun, fast, and super practical. That doesn't mean it couldn't use a few more ponies under the hood. We got a nice little bump in midrange torque from the COBB Stage 1 package a few months back, but now let's see what happens when we go for Stage 2! » 4/07/14 7:07pm 4/07/14 7:07pm

Video: Is the Cadillac ELR Twice as Cool as the Chevy Volt?

I love, and I mean love, my Chevy Volt. People who haven't driven one don't get it, and that's fine. It's not for everybody, and that's fine. What's important about choosing a car is that it works for your lifestyle, right? And the Volt works for mine. But the problem is that it just isn't that cool. You have to… » 4/01/14 11:33am 4/01/14 11:33am

I Took My 25-Year Old, Stock Mustang to a Track Day

I recently bought an ex-CHP, 1988 Mustang Notchback on Craigslist. Why? Because they are awesome and I wanted a project. I got a good deal, and the car is very clean, with a brand new Ford Racing 302 crate engine under the hood. The rest of the car is stock. I mean, really, really stock. Before I spend a ton of money… » 3/04/14 12:52pm 3/04/14 12:52pm

The Jaguar XF-RS Has Wings Because it Flies

Earlier today, we saw that Jaguar is working on a sportbrake version of the XF-RS. We probably won't get that here, because all the people who want it have no money. And that's fine. Those in America who do have money tend to buy sedans. So, how about the XF-RS saloon? It's a pretty shade of red, it has a massive wing… » 2/25/14 1:32pm 2/25/14 1:32pm

Video: Shredding a Set of Tires in the Chevrolet SS

This is the 2014 Chevrolet SS, also known as the 2008 Pontiac G8 GXP. First it was dead, then it was alive again, but only for cops, and then people begged for it on the internet (where everyone wants what they can't have). So, here it is, alive once more for customers. Is it everything they asked for? » 2/18/14 11:26am 2/18/14 11:26am

Video: The Range Rover Long Wheelbase Autobiography is Just Magnificent

You've probably never heard of the Alabama Hills region, just west of Lone Pine, CA, but I'd bet everything I have that you've seen it at least once. You see, this area, in the shadow of Mount Whitney, California's tallest peak, has played host to over 200 film shoots thanks to its epic "Wild West Frontier" setting and… » 2/04/14 8:13pm 2/04/14 8:13pm

The Smoking Tire Project Fiesta ST Gets COBB Stage 1

After we filmed the somewhat controversial Ford Fiesta ST vs. BMW E46 M3 video a month or so back, we as a group were so smitten with the Fiesta ST's ludicrous value for money proposition that our cameraman and resident mad scientist Thaddeus Brown went straight to the dealership and traded in his 2006 Mini Cooper S… » 1/31/14 12:57pm 1/31/14 12:57pm

BMW E46 M3 vs. Ford Fiesta ST: Which Is Better For $25,000?

The BMW E46 M3. Ultimate Driving Machine. Perfection on Wheels. DudeBro! It's like, the best car ever. That's what they say. But if I'm honest, the last one I drove was a convertible, on rims, equipped with SMG, and it sucked really hard. Everyone says these things are incredible, was I missing something? So, when JF… » 1/07/14 3:40pm 1/07/14 3:40pm

This is What It's Like to Bring Your Dream Car Home

It has been 27 years and a week since I first saw a Delorean. On my 31st birthday, I decided it was time I bought one. A week after my 32nd birthday, I finally got to take her home. I know, Deloreans aren't fast. I know, Deloreans had sketchy build quality, the result of being built in Northern Ireland. I know, most… » 12/10/13 1:12pm 12/10/13 1:12pm

Video: Can an Air Suspension Solve the "One Car for Everything" Problem?

As I noted when I reviewed the 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo recently, not everyone wants what I want, which is to say that not everyone wants 6 cars in their garage, each with a very specific purpose. For most people, that's just not realistic. A lot of these people want one car that does it all: practicality for the… » 10/15/13 3:32pm 10/15/13 3:32pm

Video: The 2014 Porsche Panamera is a Supercar and a Daily Driver in…

This is the new Panamera Turbo, and... no, really. This is the new Panamera Turbo, not the old one. They changed it, I swear. You just can't really see it unless you look close. See in that picture, they moved the license plate down and there's a new side skirt? Right, new, like I said. Some people don't like the… » 10/07/13 1:27pm 10/07/13 1:27pm

Video: What's it's Like to Drive the Stelvio Pass in a Too-Big and…

Recently, Jalopnik's Travis Okulski got to drive Top Gear's former pick for "the best driving road in the world" in a Porsche Cayman S, and came away underwhelmed. Travis and I have discussed this in detail, and we have decided that the Sustenpass , Grimsel Pass, and the Fluelapass are the best roads in Switzerland, and… » 10/04/13 12:47pm 10/04/13 12:47pm

Video: I Bought a Barn-Find Delorean

In 1985, when I was 4, my father brought home my first-ever car magazine. It was an issue of Car and Driver, and I must have "read" it cover-to-cover at least 100 times in the first week I had it. But I always spent more time on one page than any other: it was the page that had a full spread featuring a shiny, stainless… » 7/23/13 9:29am 7/23/13 9:29am
