Mercedes-Benz SLK Coupe renders show great potential for Porsche Cayman rival
A Cayman rival? Really? Is there any substitute for a Porsche? I suppose they could have competitive price points, but the Cayman is a mid-engine dream machine that dances on the head of a pin. This looks more like a competitor to BMW's old Z3 based M Coupe.

Honda CR-V fails AWD test, magazine claims it is a FWD car [video]
Scandalous. In the mid 80s theough early 90s, Honda really seemed to be on a roll, but it seems like they've become really ordinary. My niece left her Civic at our place, and before she retrieved it, I filled it and took it through the touch free car wash. I was appalled. The roof sheet metal vi...

Report says 2015 Porsche 911 facelift to be all turbo, except GT3 & GT3 RS
I'm sure the automotive press will praise whatever they do, but it just seems sad.

Rolls-Royce Wraith finished in lime green commissioned by Michael Fux
He's probably not concerned with resale value. While I don't care for it, I think the photos emphasize it in the most unflattering way. It's kind of a 50s two-tone color scheme, and the white/cream breaks up the exterior, but the photos don't emphasize the white. If you we to walk buy it, you'd n...

SAAB production unlikely to resume soon, NEVS will lay off 200 employees in Sweden
It seems like the wannabe premium brands with fwd based vehicles can't compete (even with fwd based awd). The market has changed since the 80s. These efforts to save Saab remind me of resuscitating someone too long after they've drowned.

2015 Audi TT & TT S Roadster
I've always liked the TT's styling, but at this price point, why not go all the way to a Boxster? I guess because a Boxster S is even more tempting, and a few options really do sweeten the deal, and POOF! $75K. There's always CPO though.

2015 Volkswagen Eos Final Edition gets detailed & priced [video]
Yeah, if only we could train car thieves to break a side windows instead of slashing tops. ;^). Glass is much cheaper to fix than replacing a soft top.

2015 Volkswagen Eos Final Edition gets detailed & priced [video]
I got ours CPO. It's a lot of compromises, but it is still a well made car. I am one of the masochists who likes VWs. I wanted another convertible, everyone in the family needed to be able to drive it, it was one of a very few four seaters with roll over protection, and it wasn't so powerful that...
