  • 2019 Genesis G70, 2018 New York auto show

    Genesis isn’t just challenging rivals on their own turf—they’re challenging them at their own game. The Genesis G70 is a luxury sport compact sedan, the kind you’d expect from another brand. It’s rear-wheel drive, big power, manual transmission—but is it too late?

  • 2018 Kia Stinger
    V-8-powered Kia Stinger in the works?

    Kia impressed, and likely shocked, many when it unveiled the Stinger, a rear-wheel-drive sport sedan that boasts specs not normally associated with the Korean brand. The shock factor arises from the fact that Kia went with a sport sedan at all when automakers are cashing in on the crossover craze...

    Chevrolet SS: the sport sedan that could, but never caught on

    It was a common practice of American automakers decades ago. Take a family sedan, swap out the plain-Jane engine, drop in a big V-8, and you have a muscle car. The Chevrolet SS was one of the final examples of such a practice, albeit not a very American one from the start. For those unaware, the...

The stock of Tesla Motors [NSDQ:TSLA] is on a roll, the company is delivering hundreds of its Model S all-electric luxury sport sedan every week, and it just turned in its first-ever profitable quarter. What can Tesla do for an encore? Betting seems to be that CEO Elon Musk will shortly announce that the company will offer battery-pack swapping for the Model S at locations across the country.

    2014 Jaguar XJR: New York Auto Show Live Images

    Jaguar’s full-size XJ sedan has long been big on comfort, but it isn’t exactly the first thing that comes to mind when someone says “sport sedan,” even in Supercharged form. Jaguar is looking to correct that with the launch of its 2014 XJR, which promises to serve up equal...

    BMW M Cars To Stay Rear-Wheel Drive

  • The Volvo S60 Polestar visits Jay Leno's Garage

    Volvos have a long-standing reputation as safe, practical and somewhat boring cars, with the possible exception of the old Volvo Turbo wagons. Sure, the S60 T6 R-Design sedan does what it can to liven things up, but its turbocharged 3.0-liter in-line six only puts out 325 horsepower, to all four wheels, via a six-speed automatic transmission. It may be quick for a Volvo, turning 0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds, but that’s not exactly BMW M3 or Audi S4 territory. Thanks to Volvo specialist Polestar, however, you may soon be able to take steps to ensure that neither the BMW nor the Audi kick sand...

    Tesla Model S 60-kWh Variant Given 208 Mile Range Rating By EPA

    Aside from their higher purchase prices, the biggest reason consumers shy away for electric vehicles as primary transportation seems to be their limited range. That begs a very real question of “how much range is enough for most drivers?” Those buying a 2013 Tesla Model S fitted with...

    We’ll admit to being fans of the Volvo S60 T6 R-Design sedan, as it’s a near-ideal blend of performance and comfort. As much as we like the car, however, it’s Volvo’s uber-sexy S60 Polestar concept that we’d rather have parked on our garage. Rumor had it that Volvo was...

  • 2012 Tesla Model S beta vehicle, Fremont, CA, October 2011

    For Tesla Motors fans, owners and investors, this morning’s third-quarter earnings call was a mixture of bad news and good news. First, the bad news: the start-up automaker lost $110.8 million in the third quarter, compared to losses of $65.1 million in the third quarter of 2011. While the loss was slightly more than analysts had predicted, it was offset by good news, too. Production of Model S sedans ramped up at the close of the third quarter, with Tesla building some 100 copies per week. Today, that rate has doubled, with Tesla building 200 Model S sedans weekly, or 10,000 units...
