I Have a Radical Proposition for the 2020 Porsche 911

The 2020 Porsche 911 is out and so are its dimensions. Mostly. And guess what? It’s larger and heavier than the outgoing model. Because of this, I believe that the 911 should no longer receive the performance-oriented RS models. Before you start screeching, let me walk you through it.

The 2019 Mazda 3 Hatch’s Rear Visibility Is Precisely as Bad as You Think It Is

When the 2019 Mazda 3 officially dropped earlier this week, we fell for its pretty face immediately, the fact that it will be offered with a manual and have all-wheel drive. And, like nearly all of you, I got to looking at the rear of the hatch version and paused. That massive C-pillar is, uh, […]

Every new generation of Porsche comes with a whole heaping helping of “The old one was better” from

Every new generation of Porsche comes with a whole heaping helping of “The old one was better” from the core group of curmudgeonly enthusiasts. I’m not immune to this, as I vastly prefer the 981-generation Cayman over the current 718, but I digress. There is a new 911 launching on Tuesday, and I expect to […]

Good Luck Finding Every Button In The $200,000 Range Rover SVAutobiography

The $207,900 Range Rover SVAutobiography is comfortable, of course. It’s also optimized for lazy passengers. The amount of motorization in the back seat of this thing is absolutely awesome if you’re an indolent millionaire, and probably the opposite if you’re the forth owner trying to keep all these electronics alive.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

The Saleen S1 Sounds Suspiciously Awesome

Saleen is well-known as the purveyor of go-fast upgrades for the Ford Mustang and the outfit that finalized the S7 supercar. In the last few years, it seems that the company has gone through difficulties. Yet this month, it came out of nowhere with a seriously cool-looking performance machine promising production and…Read more… Continue Reading […]

I Found All 19 Of The New Subaru Ascent’s Cupholders

Nineteen cupholders. Nineteen cupholders in a car that seats a maximum of eight people. That’s nearly 2.5 cupholders per occupant. Other publications, unaware of the importance of hydration, thought that perhaps this is too many cupholders. They are wrong. Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

The 2019 Volvo XC40 Has The Most Genius Interior I’ve Ever Seen

Out of everything that I saw at this year’s 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, my favorite car was actually an SUV. I know, I’m surprised, too. But it was the 2019 Volvo XC40, a car you should really be paying attention to if you like very cleverly designed interiors filled with secret nooks and crannies […]

I’m Going To Give The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross A Chance

Yes, it’s exactly what you think: Mitsubishi took the name of a sporty little car that was once great and stuck it on a new crossover to join all the other lumpy crossovers currently saturating our market: the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. And while I could easily slip into a blind rage over the whole […]

Watch Me Climb All Over And Through The Bollinger B1 Electric Utility Truck

One of the most interesting and compelling vehicles at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show looks like it was styled by the same team that did the exterior design for your window air conditioner, and yet it’s somehow more exciting than nearly every other SUV at the show. It’s the Bollinger B1 all-electric utility truck, […]

You Can Have A New EV For $12,000 But You’re Going To Have To Make Some Sacrifices

Arcimoto’s $12,000 semi-enclosed electric vehicle is not going to replace the average American’s daily driver. But for what it costs, and how far it can go, it actually might be a viable inexpensive option for adventurous people who want an EV.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

Warner Bros And Intel Partner To Bring The Horror Show Of ‘Entertainment’ Inside Your Autonomous Car

Recently, our own Stef Schrader opined that gas station TV needs to die. This is correct. I’ll argue that even worse is the video that plays on a loop when you’re in a New York City cab. Unfortunately, that may presage the future as cars become more autonomous—and the brands are eager to shove entertainment […]

The Toyota FT-AC Concept Is The ‘Tough Guy’ Crossover Americans Would Totally Buy

America wants crossovers, and not just any crossovers. We prefer our vehicles to look “rugged” even if they totally aren’t. That’s probably why today at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Toyota showed off its “Future Toyota Adventure Concept,” filling the press release with “tough guy” terminology.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com
