When the twin-turbo Mazda RX-7 got too expensive in the 1990s, Mazda responded by devising the smaller, cheaper, naturally aspirated RX-01... and then never made it. That’s a shame, if you ask me!

There Seems To Be A Strong Chance The New 992 Porsche 911 Will Get Electrified There Seems To Be A Strong Chance The New 992 Porsche 911 Will Get Electrified

In a world of constant change, the Porsche 911 is our rock. Our foundation. Our guiding North Star as the darkness threatens to surround us completely. No matter what happens, it will always be there to give us premium speed, good noises and a flat-six engine in the back. But as an all-new one looms, even Porsche…

The 2018 McLaren Formula One Car: Now With More Blue And Less Honda The 2018 McLaren Formula One Car: Now With More Blue And Less Honda

Life is full of disappointments, but not many have been as crushing as the story of the McLaren Honda Formula One team. The return to that partnership conjured images of the Senna-Prost glory days, but it mostly meant DNFs, engine failures and Fernando Alonso’s sad, dead-looking eyes. But for 2018, things will be…

Get out there today and make the most of what you have and who you are—just like the Saturn Vue Red Line did!

Just me and my best friends hanging out, no big deal.

Swing Out Sister -- 'Breakout' Swing Out Sister -- 'Breakout'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

It’s 1994 and you should see your Lexus dealer today! Also, with your knowledge of the future, you can prevent any number of terrible things from happening. But definitely do it in an SC400.

What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Wagon? What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Wagon?

Here in America, we find ourselves with a sudden wealth of wagons as a nice byproduct of the crossover boom. Well, maybe not a wealth, but there’s more available now than in many years past. Kristen is driving the Buick Regal TourX and just tested a Volvo V90 Cross Country; BMW, Volkswagen, Mini, Audi and Jaguar (!!!)…

We don’t have much to say about the 2018 Renault F1 car, except that it looks cool. It looks cool! Good combo, black and yellow.

The 2003 Mazda Ibuki Concept: not big on headlights, but big on fun!

Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.

Thirteen Gears Is Clearly Too Many Gears Thirteen Gears Is Clearly Too Many Gears

It would appear that while the Ford Motor Company gave the new diesel Raptor Ranger a 10-speed automatic gearbox, it also examined some more extreme options. Like 13 gears! Can you imagine? Let me be clear here that I believe 13 gears is too many gears.

Wonderful news! The normal, boring car you drive every day has been magically replaced with an Alfa Romeo SZ. Think of the fun you’ll have from now on!

Some days I think to myself, “yeah, I could daily an NSX.”

If You Ride A Hayabusa I Will Absolutely Stay The Fuck Away From You On The Road If You Ride A Hayabusa I Will Absolutely Stay The Fuck Away From You On The Road

I’m not a motorcyclist, but I try to be an advocate for them. When I’m out driving I respect bikes and give them a safe distance. I don’t tailgate or change lanes around them suddenly. It’s the least I can do for our friends on two wheels. This is doubly true for owners of the Suzuki Hayabusa: if I see you on one of…

As a country, we here in America are doing better about getting very fast and awesome foreign cars than we were, say, 10 or 20 years ago. You can buy a Ford Focus RS and a Civic Type R here now. This wasn’t always the case! Wind the clock back and you’ll find one of my favorites pieces of forbidden car-fruit: the…
