Most times when you ask someone ‘in-the-know’ what their ideal Porsche 911 year and spec would be, you’ll get an answer somewhere between 1970s RS and 991 GT3. It seems that folks so often pine for the most hardcore and most ‘track-focused’ versions of this rear-engined German anomaly. But that’s not really what they…
The last true Alfa?
When I first saw the strange front-end wrap-job and guys inside fiddling with gadget-looking things, I thought this might be some fellows planning some kind of cannonball run, but then I saw the manufacturer plates.
The other day I didn’t have much going on, so I called up my buddy. He asked if I wanted to go drive the new 718, and I thought about it for a while.
When a bad Ferrari is really not so bad.
the coolest convoy I’ve ever been part of, by far
Some people might sip artisanal coffee and read the paper on a Sunday morning. Others gas up and head North to wreak havoc on a small-town airstrip in cars with many hundreds of horsepower.

It just sounds so good. Nothing else really matters about this car. It handles marvelously, yes, but the sound, holy hell the sound. And it’s not just the sound at wide-open-throttle, it’s the sound at any RPM from gug-gug to BWAAAAA. It’s beautiful.
I, for one, am very excited about Citroën’s planned return to the United States, even if it begins with some kind of ride-sharing service. This country badly needs an injection of French funkiness, the kind Europeans got for years with cars like this Citroën CX.
When one finds his (or her) self deep in the desert with a twelve cylinder British sedan of the utmost sleekness, there’s really only one option. Hold the go-pedal until you either run out of road or start to pee your pants.
Two classic Mini Coopers, a dark warehouse, a camera, and a whole lot of prancing around with an LED wand makes for a damn good Friday night.
In order to allay any fears that the 2017 Porsche 911 with its new fangled turbocharger is pissing on decades of marvelous atmospheric flat-six tailpipe sounds, I fastened my GoPro to the rear bumper and let’er rip.
My mom likes to poke fun at me when I agree to do something non-car-related with her, “Oh, you sure you want to go for a hike? There aren’t any vehicles to drive or shoot...you suuure?” Little did she know, there would be a truck to shoot.
This Japanese coupe has some ‘MURICA under the hood, and it’s here to melt tires. Happy Friday!
The other night I did something I do a lot. I met up with a guy I’ve only met briefly in the past to go out in his car and...wait that could be misleading. Let me start over. The other night I shot some photos of a bonkers ‘01 S4, and it turns out I first met this car about 4 years ago.
Let’s say you met a time traveler. Someone who had been instantly transported from a time long ago to 2016. This person would have zero concept of modern technology, and transportation, and would inevitably be very curious about, well, everything.
