A Sneek Peek at BMW’s Hydrogen-Powered Future  Jul 2nd, 2015 
BMW’s hydrogen strategy is starting to take shape. The company has been working on hydrogen-powered cars since 1984, but for a long time the focus remained on the internal combustion engine.

Subaru Makes BRZ More Entertaining, More Blue  Jul 2nd, 2015 
Three years have passed since Subaru broke its own all-wheel-drive mold and gave us the visceral, rear-drive delight that is the BRZ sports car.

Front and center […]

Ezra Dyer: A Look Back at Car and Driver from 2075  Jul 2nd, 2015 
Well, sure, I remember the Car and Driver 60th-anniversary party. It was 2015, I’d recently started as a columnist, and facial hair was all the rage (on men, believe it or not). There was a big to-do in what was then called New York City. Somebody said to me, “Hey, what if you’re still writing a […] 
 
 
2015 Bentley Continental GT3-R Tested: Are You In or Are You Out?  Jul 1st, 2015 
From the outside, it’s easy to dislike the Bentley Continental GT3-R. It’s nearly $150,000 more expensive than a base Conti GT V-8. It’s the high-performance model but makes 34 fewer horsepower than the W-12–powered Speed. It’s the “lightweight” version, but it weighs 4937 pounds. READ MORE ›› 
 
 
Honda Civic Type R Engine: So Powerful, They Had to Build It in America  Jul 1st, 2015 
So, the 2015 Honda Civic Type R is an absolute barnstormer, a 306-hp hot hatch that obliterated the Nürburgring lap record for front-drive vehicles with a 7:50.6 blast in a preproduction example.

All-season tires are a North American phenomenon; virtually nowhere else in the world do cars run on a single set of tires year-round when the climate can get cold enough for snow.

Eight thousand, five hundred and twenty pounds—that’s how much our big-as-it-can-get Ford F-350 dualie test truck weighs. Its eight-foot bed and spacious crew cab help contribute to an overall length that’s an inch shy of 22 feet, or four feet longer than a Mercedes-Maybach. READ MORE ››

Back in the early 1990s, GMC went insane and built two trucks: The Typhoon and the Syclone.

Nearly all of the Syclones were black, which […]

Why NHTSA Is More Defective Than the Defects It Investigates  Jun 30th, 2015 
The agency responsible for overseeing the nation’s vehicle safety is full of incompetent, mismanaged staff who are practically set up by their superiors to fail.

I think you’ll agree with us on this point: This is the slowest, most impressive run we’ve ever seen up the driveway at Goodwood.

Lotus 3-Eleven: Add Lightness, and a Massive Price Tag  Jun 26th, 2015 
We want Lotus to succeed, we really do. It’s to the company’s misfortune that “beleaguered British sports car maker” alliterates so well.
