  • 2009 Cadillac Converj

    One of the most exciting cars from January’s Detroit Auto Show was the Cadillac Converj concept car, which General Motors used to showcase its plug-in hybrid technology in a luxury platform. Despite the concept featuring one of the most striking designs we’ve seen in a while, GM's then vice chairman Bob Lutz said it was designed so that any eventual production version would look “exactly like” the show car, hinting that we may eventually see such a car in showrooms. The company’s financial state, however, says the opposite, but there remains a chance the Converj may make it out of...

    Report: Buick Cancels Vue-Based Plug-in Hybrid Crossover

    When General Motors sells Saturn later this year it will lose more than a quarter of its sales of hybrid vehicles.

    New Details On Cadillac's Upcoming ATS Mid-Size Sedan

So it's with relief that Cadillac fans heard the news last week that the upcoming 'baby' sedan, dubbed...

    Buick Reveals New Details On Near-Future Plans

  • first pre production chevrolet volt prototype 001

    Fans of the Chevrolet Volt have followed its development closely, but few even of the faithful expected to see numbers as big as the ones coming out of General Motors today. The tentative EPA methodology works out to a city efficiency rating of 230 mpg. Talk of mile-per-gallon equivalents can get confusing quickly, but the EPA's rating system relies on a system that's intended to put cars on an equal playing field. Whether it successfully does that, especially in relation to extended-range electric vehicles like the Chevrolet Volt, is a question that's not yet fully settled, but it's the most...

    Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Confirmed For Q2 2011

    Earlier this year, common wisdom was that the Chevrolet Camaro Convertible had been canceled, or at least delayed indefinitely.

    GM Chairman wants to see models on sale ahead of schedule

    In a market where only about 10 million cars are expected to be sold annually - down from 16 million last year - every tenth of a percent of market share counts. That's why Board of Directors Chairman Ed Whitacre sees a strong need to act quickly to prevent further market share erosion. Despite the...

    Buick Hanging Up its Golf Clubs After 50 Years

    After fifty years of swinging together, the long-running marriage of Buick and the PGA pro golf tour is coming to an end. Partly a victim of GM's restructuring--and also partly Buick's desire to sell more cars to younger buyers--the end of the PGA sponsorship follows on the heels of GM's split with...

  • corvette c6r gt2 racecar 016

    The Corvette C6.R GT1 car had its last hurrah at the Long Beach leg of the American Le Mans Series GT1 championship, but today General Motors unveiled the car that will be replacing it - the C6.R GT2, based on the Corvette ZR1. With the season half over already, Corvette Racing will be using the final five rounds to test and develop the car for next year. The decision to run the car in GT2 is based in part on an upcoming move to a unified GT category in ALMS racing, which will pit the ZR1-based racer against the likes of Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche, Viper, Jaguar, BMW, Panoz and Ford. "The...

  • 2008 Pontiac Solstice Roadster

    General Motors’ announcement back in April that the Pontiac brand would be phased out by the end of the year and Saturn sold off, many of the automaker’s top models were immediately given a death sentence. Some of the cars that will be missed the most include hot items like the Saturn Sky, Pontiac G8 and of course, the Solstice Coupe and Roadster. One of the first of many reports to come, Delaware’s The News Journal reports that production at GM’s 62-year old Boxwood Road assembly plant ceased on Tuesday. The facility will close or idle 14 plants in the next three...
