Occasionally, I get distracted by the bigger and flashier stuff BMW offers, like the new 8 Series and the new Z4, and I forget that the best driver’s BMW actually already exists. It’s the 2 Series—and, more specifically, the M2 Competition. Shame, shame, shame on me.

Comment of the Day: Product Planning Edition Comment of the Day: Product Planning Edition

General Motors and Cadillac, as we have found, both enjoy building very cool and opulent concept cars and then never doing anything about them ever again. Weird!

Here's the Midengine Corvette Tooling Around Southwest Florida

What a Lifelong Z Mechanic Thinks of Nissan Today What a Lifelong Z Mechanic Thinks of Nissan Today

“I think Nissan’s lost,” said Rob Fuller, leaning back in his chair at the shop where he pours his blood and sweat into those cars, as he’s done for decades. He thought for a moment, twirling absentmindedly at his mustache. “Well, I can’t say it’s lost. It has a new direction. And I’m just not a part of it.”

Transformers: The Last Knight Contains an Injustice That Cannot Stand Transformers: The Last Knight Contains an Injustice That Cannot Stand

Yes, I am aware Transformers: The Last Knight came out last year, but I only got around to finally watching it this week. SHUT UP. As such, I came away positively enraged over a decision involving a Citroën DS and a Lamborghini Centenario. It was a seemingly small decision, but it means THE WORLD.

That Auction Record-Breaking 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Is Worth More Than Its Weight in Gold That Auction Record-Breaking 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Is Worth More Than Its Weight in Gold

This past summer, the world saw a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sell at RM Sotheby’s Monterey Car Week auction for a staggering $48.4 million—making it the most expensive car ever sold at auction. Know what else is disgusting? This makes the Ferrari officially worth more than its weight in gold.

While riding a motorcycle might have once seemed like a very masculine activity, that’s definitely not the case today. More and more women are getting into motorcycles and female ridership has climbed within the last decade by significant numbers.

What About Cars Do Movies Get Wrong?  What About Cars Do Movies Get Wrong? 

There’s definitely no shortage of cars in movies. There are movies about cars, movies about driving and movies not about cars but where cars do plenty of stunts. The problem is that sometimes directors and editors get sloppy and mistakes appear onscreen.

Aston Martin Is Fitting Classic Cars With Electric Powertrains Aston Martin Is Fitting Classic Cars With Electric Powertrains

Electrification doesn’t have to be reserved just for the upcoming, futuristic cars. Sometimes, we can take old, classic cars and turn them into EVs, too. It’s better for the environment this way. Aston Martin agrees, which is why it’s rolling out a new plan to release a reversible EV powertrain conversion.

Safety standards for cars are now incredibly high, and the European New Car Assessment Programme just published its results for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler.

I Have a Radical Proposition for the 2020 Porsche 911 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.

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, problematic and I…

I only recognize one good-looking Ferrari one-off in recent memory and that’s the SP38. The rest of them mostly just look like they are wearing some new paint and have a few body modifications. The same goes for this new Ferrari SP3JC one-off.
