The Cranky Old Man of F1 changes his mind...again.
Got a dictionary handy? Pull it out and look up the word “curmudgeon.” If there isn’t already a little picture of Bernie Ecclestone there, draw one in. Then flip to “indecisive” and draw his face in there, too. (more…)
Hope you're in those upper tax brackets.
The first presidential debate of the 2012 campaign kicks off tomorrow, and while it’s unlikely either gentleman will be buying one anytime soon, it’s safe to say both Barack Obama (2011 gross income: $790,000) and Mitt Romney (2011 gross income: $13.7 million) could afford this sexy example of American ingenuity. But unless you’re in their income tax bracket you make a similar amount of money to them, you may have a bit of trouble stretching your budget to buy a new 2013 SRT Viper. (more…)
Or "Benz's Electric Boogaloo."
The new Jag looks like it should live up to its first and last names.
True story: Last night, I was having a conversation with an old college friend, and as it often does with us, we started talking about cars. Specifically, British ones. He mentioned that he could never see himself driving a Jaguar. They were “old man cars,” he scoffed. Rather than offer up counterpoints like the lightweight aluminum construction of the XJ or the fluid lines of the XF, I simply pulled out my iPhone and pulled up a picture of the most recent Jaguar I’d driven—the XKR-S coupe in French Racing Blue. “Okay,” he admitted, “That’s pretty sweet.” (more…)
And a new special edition package, just for kicks.
Hard as it is to believe, the Lamborghini Gallardo is just about a decade old. An all-new model with an all-new name is expected to hit the streets sometime in the next couple years (along with a new Audi R8), but in the meantime, Lamborghini is throwing a slight makeover the Gallardo’s way.

Great, now we probably owe Seinfeld fifty cents.
We’ll admit, when we first heard a rumor that Porsche was planning on revealing a station wagon version of the Panamera at this year’s Paris Motor Show, we thought it seemed a little out there. A Porsche station wagon? That seems about as likely as a Porsche sport-utili…er, a Porsche supercar that’s also a plug-in hybri…oh, damn, this might really happen. (more…)
Some new details, but not the ones we were hoping for.
No, we’re not in France right now covering the 2012 Paris Motor Show. We’re stuck here in the middle of Manhattan, thousands of miles away from the hubbub and hysteria of all those new car introductions. But at least we can watch from afar…a task made easier by the lovely press shots most of the manufacturers are releasing. First on our list: the McLaren P1, revealed in further high-res detail above.

Not much longer until they're naked.
When, oh when, will the new Porsche 911 Turbo and GT3 finally make their public debuts to the world? It seems like they’ve been roaming the roads and tracks in varying degrees of camouflage for years now, and yet the company still has given no word on when the 991 generation’s twin flavors of high-power 911 will reach their adoring fans. But judging by just how skimpy the clothes covering the prototypes has become, we doubt the big reveal could be that far away. (more…)
