• 2012 BMW M6 Convertible

    If you're at all familiar with chili peppers and the zing they bring, you know that a little heat's a good thing, but too much spice can completely numb the senses—or bite back. It's how we couldn't help but feel about the new 2012 BMW M6 Convertible, top down, in one of its many Sport-mode combinations. Exploring (and enjoying) the M6's phenomenal capability just a little bit adds some spice—and it's an ever-present temptation—but moderation and respect is key. Crack the throttle of this 560-horsepower, 4,500-pound beast open the first time or two on a long, straight road...

    Spy Shots: 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK AMG

    The new 2012 SLK is on the loose, revealed at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, but we're still waiting for the AMG variant. From the looks of it, we won't have to wait much longer, as these spy shots add to those captured last summer, bringing the car's shape into sharper focus as it loses some of the...

    2012 BMW 6-Series Coupe Preview

    At the Detroit Auto Show this January, BMW pulled the wraps off its new 2012 6-Series in Convertible form. Now we're getting the first official look at the 2012 BMW 650i Coupe. At first glance, the production 650i Coupe actually doesn't look that much different than the Concept 6-Series Coupe BMW...

    In Defense Of The 2011 Scion tC

    This will be a partial defense of the Scion tC. I find myself in this odd position having read Bengt Halvorson’s less than glowing overview of the car. Mind you, I get where Bengt’s coming from. The tC has been upgraded, but it’s a poseur in the cheap two-door sports car market;...

    Video: Jay Leno's Garage Hands-On With The Rossi SixtySix C2-Styled C6 Corvette

    Pairing the classic looks of the split-window C2 Corvette with the mechanical might of the C6 Corvette platform is the brilliant idea behind the Rossi SixtySix, which made its debut this summer at the EyesOnDesign event in Detroit. We brought you a first look at the car back in 2008, but now we...

  • 2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe spy shots

    Mercedes-Benz's last C-Class coupe, the CLC, wasn't a great success, particularly here in the U.S., in part because of its awkward styling and in part--towards the end--because it was actually based on the previous-generation car, with only minor styling tweaks to update its look. Now Mercedes is working on an all-new version of the C-Class Coupe, and our spies have captured a near-production model in testing, for the first time at the Nurburgring. The new shots don't reveal much we didn't already know about the car, though it appears to be fairly softly sprung based on the suspension...

    Spy Shots: 2012 Hyundai Veloster

    Last December, Hyundai Motor America CEO John Krafcik confirmed that a new Veloster Concept-based coupe would be joining the lineup in 2011 as a 2012 model and serve as the replacement for the previous Tiburon. Today, we have new spy shots of a prototype undergoing further testing ahead of its...

    Breaking: Production 2012 Hyundai Veloster Not Coming To L.A. Auto Show

    Hyundai just announced via its Twitter account that the production version of its Veloster concept won't be on display at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show. The news isn't really that surprising, since the 2011 Elantra will be making its debut in L.A., and Hyundai has previously stated on its blog...

    Video: Juan Pablo Montoya Thrashes Corvette ZR1 At Milford

    The setting: GM's Milford Proving Grounds test track. The players: former F1 pilot turned NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya and a Corvette ZR1. The result: lots of fast driving, some opposite lock, and a few backhanded compliments. While Montoya does have a lot of good to say about America's...

    Testing in advance of Rally Deutschland, Ken Block and co-driver Alex Gelsomino are hitting the tarmac for the first time ever in their WRC Ford Focus. The video shows that Block and Gelsomino are quick studies, though whether it'll be enough to keep up with the WRC crowd is another question...

    Coming straight out of a two-hour stint in the Ferrari 458 Italia and jumping into just about anything else, you expect to be...underwhelmed. Not so with the Aston Martin V12 Vantage. Though it takes a very different route, the big-engined baby Aston is, in its own way, even better. Take Aston...

  • Entry-level Porsche Roadster rendering

    Hints from executives, rumors, and outright denials have circulated the web for over a year now, and still we're no closer to knowing for certain if a sub-Boxster model is on its way. With the recent appointment of Matthias Muller to the CEO position at Porsche, however, the new entry-level Porsche is looking more likely than ever. The vehicle, if it's built, will be based on the shared architecture of the Volkswagen Bluesport roadster, shown to media and popular praise at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show, nearly two years ago. Though the VW concept was shown with a green-oriented 2.0-liter...

    We've already seen the 2011 Bentley Continental GT all but unmasked in our spy shots, but the details of what's under the (relatively) sleek new skin still remain unknown. All the wondering will be over by mid-September, though, as Bentley today launched a new microsite teasing the car's unveiling...

  • 2010 Volkswagen Eos

    Somehow, The Bachelorette is still on the air, which probably means that someone is still watching it, which probably means that some people out there know who Ali Fedotowsky is. We are not those people. However, her name shows up a lot in the news feeds, and it's fairly hard to miss, so in our minds, she's become kind of famous just for having a surname that's really hard to spell. Apart from that, all we know for sure is that Ali originally hails from Massachusetts, she's become a California girl, she's cute in a Jessica Simpson kind of way, and she's going to ride that fame pony 'till it...

    There are three things we know for sure: 1. Life sucks. 2. That dude from Jet Blue completely staged his exit (which is not to say it wasn't awesome, though it pales in comparison to Wendy O. Williams' jump from a moving bus). 3. Tila Tequila is the love child of Anna Nicole Smith and Imelda...
