  • Cadillac Converj Concept

    One of the most exciting cars from last year’s Detroit Auto Show was the Cadillac Converj concept, 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. Today, on the eve of the 2010 Detroit Auto Show, Lutz has confirmed that the Converj is headed for...

    Breaking: Saab Board Votes For Liquidation, GM Still Considering Bids

    It looks as if Saab is done. The board of the company voted today in Sweden to shut the company down and liquidate its assets. GM is still evaluating bids, according to the report, but with the liquidation decision and GM's hiring of AlixPartners to handle the wind-down, barring some truly...

    Reports of a single replacement for Cadillac's aging DTS and STS sedans have circulated the web for ages now, with news that the car would be called the XTS and could even share a front-wheel drive platform with the Buick LaCrosse all making the rounds.

    GM Working On Ultra-Efficient Diesel Hybrids

    Modern turbodiesel powertrains already match gasoline-electric hybrids in fuel-economy and often outmatches them when it comes to driveability and performance, but a combination of the two separate technologies could provide a perfect blend of performance and economy. The idea of a diesel-electric...

    Ford Mustang Beats Chevy Camaro For 2009 Muscle Car Sales Title

    Who'd have thought the last year of the first decade of the 21st Century (by common reckoning, anyway) would contain a tale of muscle car sales wars between the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro, barring anyone postulating from the late 1960s? But so it is, and it turns out to have been a barn...

  • 2010 Porsche Panamera

    A local guy who lives a couple of million dollars North of me recently took delivery of the area's first Panamera...an all-wheel-drive"S" in a special butterscotch paint. The delivery was a few days late because the car's magic keyfob was on the fritz. When the car was finally delivered he discovered a set of fitted, high-end German luggage in the trunk.  The luggage was wheeled, hard-sided, made of Unobtanium. And--get this--painted the same butterscotch color as the car. Just to say sorry about the inconvience. Now, besides the fact that this guy now owns a set of luggage that's much too...

And now the Internet is abuzz with talk that Apple COO Tim Cook might be the next CEO at General Motors. The news is still utterly unofficial and speculative, but as Silicon...

    2009: The Year In Reverse

    We're just a couple of days away from rear-ending 2010, so like all major media outlets, we thought we'd take a break from real reporting (don't worry: nothing's happening) and look back at some of 2009's notable moments.

    With the reshaping of the top ranks at General Motors still underway, it's reassuring to see some familiar faces rising: Susan Docherty, former head of the Buick-Pontiac-GMC group is now the corporate vice president for sales, service and marketing.

    Los Angeles Auto Show: Would Americans Buy the Baby Lexus LF-Ch Hybrid Electric?

    First off, all of the madness concerning using letters and numbers to name cars has just gone too far. It worked for a few car companies like BMW (who has always done it) but now that everyone is turning to alphanumeric nomenclature no one can tell which car is which. I have so many of these silly...

    The soft sobbing sound you hear is poor little Saab sitting in its therapist's office dealing with issues of abandonment post-Koenigsegg and neglect post-General Motors.

  • 2010 Saab 9-5

    The disastrous scenario of Penske and Saturn is playing out once again, this time with Koenigsegg pulling out of the agreement to buy Saab from GM. So far neither GM nor Saab have revealed the reason behind the decision. GM's CEO Fritz Henderson released a statement this morning confirming the death of the deal. "We're obviously very disappointed with the decision to pull out of the Saab purchase," said Henderson. Where Saab will go next isn't clear, but there's now a very real risk the brand could end up on the scrap heap alongside Saturn and Pontiac. "Given the sudden change in direction...

    I live in Canada. Ford stopped selling its Mercury brand here in 1999, and, to be quite frank, no one has missed it. GM finally killed Oldsmobile in 2001, and I'm sure wed be mourning Buick right now, if it weren't so huge in China. The Chrysler brand has two good cars in its whole line-up. One is...
