  • 2019 Porsche Macan

    The corners are blind. An oncoming car, bus, or bicyclist could await on the other side. Please don’t be a bus. The lane is narrow. The SUV I’m in takes up almost all of it. There is barely any shoulder, and sometimes a guardrail sits right on the lane line and threatens to add an unintentional racing stripe to the passenger’s side. And yet these tight switchbacks in the mountains of Mallorca, Spain, beg for hard driving in the moments when I can see all is clear ahead. While these roads are best traveled on a motorcycle, if it’s going to be an SUV, I’m glad...

  • 2016 Zotye T700 - Image via Autohome

    The Chinese automotive landscape is one that is still in the early evolution stages, but it's growing strongly. Still, it's plagued a bit by a major problem that pops up albeit with less frequency than in years past. We're talking about design plagiarism, where a Chinese automaker simply copies an existing design from another non-Chinese automaker. There are many examples of this out there, and a recent one sees automaker Zotye readying a vehicle called the T700... which looks almost exactly like the Porsche Macan. It's a clear issue for affected automakers, but there is little recourse to be...
