    2014 Jaguar F-Type: Best Car To Buy 2014 Nominee

    When it comes to beautiful cars, Jaguar deserves credit for creating some of the best--though it has had its doldrums. Lately, however, the brand has been back on its game, from the XF to the XJ, and, now, the F-Type. The 2014 Jaguar F-Type is easily the most stunning roadster to hit the market...

    Lotus Exige S Roadster Coming This Summer: Video

    After a highly public meltdown by ex-CEO Dany Bahar, followed by an equally public ousting, Lotus and parent company DRB-Hicom made many reassurances the company was still on track, despite having stopped work on future models. Now, Lotus has released a video (apparently made entirely in iMovie)...

  • 30 Days of the 2014 Jaguar F-Type

    Tying the present to the past is sometimes easy, sometimes not. With cars there's often a direct lineage to follow. In the case of the 2014 Jaguar F-Type, tracing its roots is a bit more indirect. Jaguar has been keen to play up the ties to the XK120 and its legendary offspring, the C-Type and D-Type. That might seem like some revisionist history, but in truth, those cars offer the closest parallel to the F-Type in Jaguar's storied past. First, there are the obvious similarities: both are roadsters (though the XK120 was available as a drophead and fixed head coupe--the latter of which is also...

    A stunning barchetta has been revealed by Italian design house Pininfarina on the eve of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

    SL65 AMG-Based Brabus 800 Roadster To Debut In Geneva

    The Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG, in stock form, pumps out some 621 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque from its twin-turbo, 6.0-liter V-12 engine. Before you add a single option, the car prices at nearly $214,500, including destination fee and gas-guzzler tax. If those numbers aren’t...

    It may seem like the life of a traveling auto writer is all unicorns, rainbows, and thumping V-8s (or V-10s or V-12s), but track-testing a new car can be tough. You have to learn a new track as you learn a new car, typically in a very short period of time and in a limited number of laps. In...

  • Time capsule 1954 Corvette - image: David Newhardt for Mecum Auctions

    In 1959, grocery mogul Richard Sampson gave builders of his latest store, in Brunswick, Maine, a rather unconventional request: they were to entomb a perfectly good, low mileage 1954 Corvette in its own room, lit by two incandescent bulbs, with only a single square window from which to view the car. As Hemmings Daily tells us, the C1 Corvette was to remain in this time capsule until the year 2000, then some 41 years in the future. Sampson died in 1969, and the car stayed parked in its mausoleum until the store was sold in the 1980s. Prior to his death, Sampson had amended the clause requiring...

    Charles Morgan On The Future Of The Morgan Motor Company: Video

    An outsider, especially one not familiar with the automotive industry, could easily view the Morgan Motor Company as antiquated or even archaic. Its cars are still built by hand, in a factory that looks more like a successful repair shop than an automotive assembly plant. Its designs lean more...

    BMW Reveals V-12 Powered Z3 Prototype

    BMW’s Z3 roadster, built from 1996 - 2002, wasn’t exactly the Bavarian automaker’s finest effort. Essentially a parts-bin car, it’s primary claim to fame was affordability, and it was relatively successful in bringing the BMW roundel into a new batch of buyers’...

    MG Working On An Icon-Based Convertible Crossover: Report

    The Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet, in the eyes of critics, is the answer to a question that absolutely no one is asking. The topless crossover is plagued by funky looks and a more-than-slightly-ambitious sticker price, which begs the question, “could a more attractive and reasonably priced...

  • Jaguar F-Type at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

    Jaguar has been very savvy in building interest for it’s upcoming F-Type roadster. Images and video footage of the under-development sports car have been leaked on a fairly consistent basis, but few people outside of the development team had seen Jaguar’s newest cat stretch its legs in person. That changed at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed, where Jaguar ran an F-Type validation prototype up the Goodwood hill in the Supercar class. Although the car was still sporting its newsprint camouflage, the basic shape of the body is unmistakable (and undeniably Jaguaresque in...

    Jaguar’s upcoming F-Type roadster is the marque’s first attempt at building a no-compromise sports car in over 50 years. To call the car significant is an understatement, as it has the potential of pirating buyers away from brands like Porsche and BMW. Based on the C-X16 Concept, Jaguar...
