The other night I did something I do a lot. I met up with a guy I’ve only met briefly in the past to go out in his car and...wait that could be misleading. Let me start over. The other night I shot some photos of a bonkers ‘01 S4, and it turns out I first met this car about 4 years ago.
Let’s say you met a time traveler. Someone who had been instantly transported from a time long ago to 2016. This person would have zero concept of modern technology, and transportation, and would inevitably be very curious about, well, everything.
Driving old cars can be a mixed bag. On one hand, they tend to be nice to look at and fun to see how “things used to be.” On the other hand, they tend to be mechanically temperamental and lacking relative to what we may be accustomed to in terms of performance and handling.

A giddy group of tech journalists nervously shift their weight, fidgeting some. Zac Moseley, owner of Classic Car Club Manhattan (CCC), is giving his “how-to-not-wreck-our-supercars” speech. We’re about to set off on a drive with four exceptional vehicles to test a small plastic box that aims to unlock the full…
It’s pretty amazing what you can do with a cheap LED and a DSLR. Last weekend a friend visited and brought this beastly yellow machine, of course I couldn’t help but break out the tripod and snap a few shots.
The McLaren 12C is a fantastic car, there’s no disputing this fact. It was born from years of street and race proven technology and received by the automotive community with open arms. But there was something missing.
What to even say about this car. It’s silver? It’s loud? It’s like a Singer, but wider? It’s like a Rauh-Welt, but with a better spoiler?
The formula is correct with this bawdy German duo. A well balanced chassis, drive to the rear wheels, and most importantly a potent V8 motor up front. Only thing missing was a sinuous stretch of tarmac, which we just so happened to find.
Words simply can not do this car justice. In the realm of exalted sports cars, inhabited by the likes of the E30 M3 and Mazda Miata, The NSX has a distinctly different flavor.
People have been asking this question for literally hundreds of years, yet the answer still eludes many. Both German, both open-top. Both rear-wheel-drive, but one has the motor in front and the other mid-mounted.
Here we have a 2015 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Sport Premium. This is a loaner car. It had 48 miles on it when my friend collected it recently. Safe to say he will have this car for a somewhat extended period of time, during which his work schedule is flexible. What should he do with it?
Visiting a friend at a New Jersey Porsche dealership recently, I happened upon a magical moment. A new owner taking delivery of this gorgeous Arena Red hybrid hyper hauler.
Walking to work on this rainy Monday, I happened upon this strange scene just North of Canal street.
This trooper took a leisurely Sunday drive swerving back and forth across all three local lanes of the New Jersey Turnpike this afternoon. Behind the cruiser, hundreds of impatient folk plodded along at +/- 40 mph as it happily frolicked to and fro using whichever lanes it pleased. Why not all of them?
Racetracks are magical places. Even if you’re not there to race or drive at all, there’s a certain feeling associated with the acrid stank of race gas and burned rubber. Which is why I jumped at the opportunity to be a “spotter” for a Porsche Club of America member.
This is not a car that people usually aspire to, or that is pined after. Stereotypes abound; this car is known best as either the Porsche you buy when you can’t afford a 911 or a hairdresser’s car. But that’s all nonsense and here’s why.
Spring has arrived! What better way to celebrate than with a blown 6-speed drop-top V10 on an empty twisty country road.
The above photo is not a photo of the 570S. Since I wasn't allowed to take any photos of the new "base" McLaren (no matter how hard I tried to bribe every McLaren employee in attendance), I'm just going to describe it in some detail.
