Can’t get enough of the high-action Top Gear-style “fast car vs something else” races?

Midsize Coupes are Dead, Long Live Midsize Coupes!

Midsize Coupes are Dead, Long Live Midsize Coupes!

I’ve never owned a coupe. It seems that if I wanted to buy one today, I’d have three to choose from: compact (Hyundai Elantra, Scion tC), performance (Ford Mustang, Subaru BRZ), and premium (Audi A5, BMW 6-Series).

And it comes to a point where- while the naturally aspirated V12 and naughty six-speed manual gearbox will always reign supreme in the fun department, the hybrid powertrain and dual-clutch gearbox are technologically […]

Do You Own America's Most Embarrassing Car?

Do You Own America’s Most Embarrassing Car?

There are more than a few cars that I cringe at when I see them rolling down the road, always wondering “WTF were they thinking when they made that monstrosity?” But the fact that people still buy the damn things proves how terrible our tastes are. To be fair, each car is made for a […]

Alternative Names Once Planned for Popular Cars

In a consumer driven world, the right name is one of the most important aspects to selling a product. For car companies, branding has long been realized as an essential part in developing a class-leading vehicle.

Nissan Kills the Altima Coupe for 2014

Nissan Kills the Altima Coupe for 2014

What a damn shame. I really liked the Altima Coupe, a nice sporty mid-size alternative to the very good but comparatively boring sedan. Last year, Nissan unveiled the new fifth-generation sedan, which was given a full redesign inside & out. While the coupe sat there wondering why it was left out, Nissan execs were sneakily […]
