At Least Porsche Had Its Best Sales Year Ever In 2018 At Least Porsche Had Its Best Sales Year Ever In 2018

Does the ongoing SUV apocalypse have you down? Here’s some good news: People are still buying fun cars, even if they’re expensive and in some cases way more normal than they used to be. Porsche, for example, had its best sales year ever in 2018. I’ll take that news over the opposite.

The Tesla Model 3 Is Finally Headed To Europe The Tesla Model 3 Is Finally Headed To Europe

Members of the European Tesla faithful, rejoice: The Model 3 will soon be on its way to fulfill your entry-level-ish electric luxury sedan dreams. The car has finally cleared its last regulatory hurdle in Europe and the first batch of them are on their way now.

GM Knows This Is Cadillac’s Last Chance GM Knows This Is Cadillac’s Last Chance

Cadillac had two big pieces of news at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show: The new money-printing XT6 crossover and big plans for electrification in the coming years starting with a battery-powered crossover. The problem, however, is right now. Sales are down, the direction forward is unclear, it feels behind the curve in…

What Does a 'Hard Brexit' Mean For The Global Auto Industry? What Does a 'Hard Brexit' Mean For The Global Auto Industry?

Here’s how bad Brexit could get for the car industry, dealers are pissed at Volvo, Detroit had some fun cars and much more for The Morning Shift of Monday, Jan. 21 2019.

Who needs an SUV when the weather gets bad? Give me a long wheelbase W140 S-Class and some tire chains any day.

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

Now THIS Is How You Sell an E36 M3 Now THIS Is How You Sell an E36 M3

From our own Aaron Brown, who has a daily Craigslist search alert set up for “Cheap M3s under $4,000,” comes the most brilliantly brazen for-sale ad I think I’ve ever seen. Forget the clever essay-length backstory and insane hyperbole. This is how you sell a car.

The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Looks Like a Hell of a Lot of Fun

It brings joy to my heart that even as the SUVs and crossovers are poised to take over the entire world, arguably the biggest debuts at the Detroit Auto Show were the 2020 Toyota Supra and this—the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. Sporty cars still matter because they capture our attention and set the tone for their…

Let’s Take a Video Tour of the New 2020 Toyota Supra

Sick of hearing about the new 2020 Toyota Supra yet? I’m not, only because I very much want to drive it and see if Toyota—and mostly BMW, if we’re giving credit where it’s due—can deliver a driving experience worth waiting for.

A reminder that you don’t need a gigantic grille to still roll in resplendent BMW luxury.

You Were Faster Than A Jalopnik Writer, Again You Were Faster Than A Jalopnik Writer, Again

Well, the headline is true if you happen to be Jacob Kownacki, Brian Parme and Reece Everard. And “faster” specifically applies to karting. I’m pretty sure I could beat some of those dudes in a foot race.

It’s a blessed day whenever you spot the final Saab 9-5 just driving around.

Here’s Where Toyota and BMW Parted Ways on the New Supra Here’s Where Toyota and BMW Parted Ways on the New Supra

By now everyone knows that the new 2020 Toyota Supra was more than just co-developed with BMW—it’s pretty much entirely a BMW inside and under its sheetmetal. That’s readily apparent when you’re greeted with an iDrive screen as soon as you step inside. But it and the 2019 BMW Z4 are said to be different cars, and ones…

Subaru Brought Some Badass Performance Classics to the Detroit Auto Show Subaru Brought Some Badass Performance Classics to the Detroit Auto Show

Subaru quietly showed up the new Toyota Supra at the Detroit Auto Show yesterday by unveiling a WRX STI S209 with even more power than Toyota’s revived sports car, despite having an engine now older than our last intern. But that wasn’t the only nice surprise on the show floor—the automaker brought a couple very…

2020 Toyota Supra: Tons of New Photos 2020 Toyota Supra: Tons of New Photos

You know, I don’t mind that it has iDrive this time, or that it’s built in Austria. I’m into the new 2020 Toyota Supra and I’m eager to drive it. Let’s ogle a bunch of photos from Toyota.

The 2020 Toyota Supra Is Finally Here With 335 HP, Does Zero to 60 in 4.1 Seconds The 2020 Toyota Supra Is Finally Here With 335 HP, Does Zero to 60 in 4.1 Seconds

No more leaks. No more teasers. No more camouflage. At long last the all-new 2020 Toyota Supra is here to revive a storied nameplate, and even if it’s a BMW underneath now it’s still packing turbocharged inline-six power, rear-wheel drive and aggressive looks.

I sure hope the mid-engine Corvette, pictured, makes a surprise appearance at the Detroit Auto Show today.
