Could the Toyota Supra Get a Big Power Bump?

Our friends over at Motor1 have been busy today. First it’s the rumor about the next-gen Honda Civic Type R getting a big power boost and all-wheel drive, and now they’re reporting that a version of the Toyota Supra might get a big power bump, bigger than what the car got in 2021. Well, actually, […] The post Could the Toyota Supra Get a Big Power...

Tight Inventory Stands to Hamper July Sales, At Least for Some

Fall holiday discounts aside, the height of summer is typically a good time to head out and buy a car. The weather’s good, new models are rolling into dealers, and markdowns are appearing on older stock taking up precious space. Yet 2020 is anything but a normal year. As the industry struggles to regain the […] The post Tight Inventory Stands to Hamper...

Rumor Mill: Honda Civic Type R to Get Even Wilder

The Honda Civic Type R isn’t exactly subtle. Its boy-racer styling and big wing announce its presence and mission with authority. It’s as if Honda is saying, “Hey, you want subtlety in a hi-po Civic? Get a Si.” Note: The Si is easily identifiable because of a spoiler of its own, albeit one that’s far […] The post Rumor Mill: Honda Civic Type R to...

Where Your Author Sells a Subaru During a Pandemic (Part I)

I last gave an update on the vehicles which occupy my drive back in February. At the time, the Volkswagen’s roof rattle issues had (finally) been corrected and I was all ready for a quick sale of my Subaru Outback. But said quick sale was interrupted by a few different issues, both local and global. […] The post Where Your Author Sells a Subaru During...

IPO? Who Needs That? Rivian Lands Another $2.5 Billion

As you read earlier this morning, Rivian founder and CEO R.J. Scaringe isn’t all that impressed with the ability of some EV startups to wow Wall Street with lofty talk and exciting, but perhaps empty, promises. He’s more concerned with getting product out the door. It’s perhaps because of Rivian’s conventional approach to car building […] The post...

Diesel Power Predictably Lands in the Jeep Gladiator

There’s plenty of things Americans can’t get their hands on these days — hand sanitizer, inexpensive front-drive coupes, and a predictable future, to name a few — but those dreaming of the chance to drive a four-door convertible pickup powered by a compression-ignition engine haven’t long to wait before seeing their wish granted. As many […] The post...

Ford’s Mexican Engine Pipeline Running at Half Speed; Automaker Warns of Plant Shutdowns

Ford cautioned that some of its American assembly plants could be put on ice as early as next week, as shortages persist at a Mexican plant still not running at full capacity. The potential engine shortages stemming from coronavirus fears at Ford’s Chihuahua Engine Plant and in the surrounding countryside would stymie production of key […] The post...

At Rivian, Product Tops Promises

Among electric vehicle startups, Rivian is the nonconformist. Compared to its braggadocious contemporaries, many of which are still years away from building anything, the Michigan-based company is well-poised to deliver a drivable product within a year’s time, with only scant attention paid to the possibilities of going public on a raft of promises....

QOTD: Many Happy Journeys?

By now you’ve heard, been told, or simply noticed that the Dodge lineup for 2021 contains but three models: the Charger, Challenger, and Durango. A trifecta of AARP members, now endowed with as much horsepower as Fiat Chrysler could rustle up from its deep parts bin. Gone for ’21, but hardly forgotten, is the Grand […] The post QOTD: Many Happy Journeys?...

Lucid Motors Plots 20 Storefronts By 2021

On Wednesday, Lucid Motors announced plans to open 20 retail locations and service centers across North America by the end of 2021. They’ll be called “Lucid Studios,” helping the company herald in what it considers “new standards for sustainable transportation” via the sale of luxury vehicles. You know as well as we do that this […] The post Lucid...
