Talk About a “Parts” Car!

It’s one thing to restore a car. It’s an entirely different matter to build one in four days from the ground up out of mismatched parts. That’s exactly what the folks at Haggerty Classic Cars did this past October at the Hershey, PA AACA Swap Meet. Watch the time lapse video of this creation coming to life.   ... Read More

These Ain’t Your Normal Supercars

Once upon a time, supercars were defined by displacement and gasoline. Today, not so much. Take for example BMW’s i8 and Honda’s NSX, hybrid entries in the elite world of supercars. The guys at Carfection put the cars together in a head-to-head comparison, and the results might surprise you. ... Read More

2017 Volvo S90 T6 AWD Inscription

Minimalism: It was once a German tradition, the modernist Bauhaus movement bringing us now cherished art, architecture, furniture and more, yet most things German have overcomplicated in recent years, especially within the automotive sector. Fortunately we have the Scandinavians to fall back on, creators of clean modern furniture design, tastefully styled clothing, elegantly simple horology, and ... Read More

2017 Volvo S90

Most everyone is familiar with Volvo cars. Affectionately known as "bricks on wheels," these sturdy Nordic trackers were high on safety and reliability in the past, but lacking in style and luxury. No one ever placed Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Cadillac in the same circle. The once-befallen Cadillac has steamrolled its way back into the mix with the impressive CT6 sedan, and Volvo has kicked the ... Read More

2017 Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited

Subaru completely redesigned its mid-size Legacy sedan for the 2015 model year and fortunately I was able to spend a week with one, learning its ins and outs and appreciating its unique character when compared to more commonplace competitors. So when opportunity to test a 2017 version arrived, I could hardly pass it up. As you may know already, Subaru isn't the type of brand that whimsically ... Read More

2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

Want a great deal on a Porsche turbo? That's easy. Buy nearly any new Porsche, as most are now turbocharged and all will soon be. Scripted matte black "turbo" lettering on the backside of a 911 or via decals gracing the rocker panels has always been cause for pause amongst sports car enthusiasts, the car once revered as the fastest production model on the planet, but now Turbo is merely a trim ...

2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 4Matic Coupe

I had a favorite sports coupe as a young man in my early 20s. I know I probably should've been more interested in RX7s, 280ZXs, Sciroccos, Supras and the like at the low end, as they were much more within my reach, or 911s, Countachs, Esprits, M1s, Panteras and 512 Berlinetta Boxers at the high end, because most guys my age were, and I was enthused by all of the above to a point, but for the same ...

2017 Kia Cadenza

Cadence is defined by Merriam-Webster as the beat, time, or measure of rhythmical motion of activity. Likewise, the 2017 Kia Cadenza is defined by the beat of its 290 horsepower V6, and the rhythmic motion produced by galloping along country roads. So what better place to introduce a vehicle that combines power and motion than an equestrian themed resort in Loudon County, Virginia? Yes, the ... Read More

2017 Jaguar XE 35t AWD R-Sport

17_jaguar_xe_r_sport_thumbnail

In the premium auto sector there's one class that dominates them all, the "compact" D-segment occupied by BMW's 3 Series, Mercedes' C-Class, and the rest. That Jaguar hasn't had anything to offer this critically important entry-level luxury buyer since the X-Type was scrapped in 2009 is almost as heinous a crime as conjuring up the Ford Contour/Mondeo-based model in the first place, but all is ...

2017 Infiniti QX30

Platform sharing among automobile manufacturers has taken place for years. Oftentimes, this sharing makes good fiscal sense within corporations, with General Motors being a great example. If you are fifty-ish or older, then you remember the 1970s Chevy Monte Carlo, Pontiac Grand Prix, Buick Regal, and Oldsmobile Cutlass sharing trim and mechanicals. GM mustered multiple cars from one ... Read More
