MINI exec confirms the Coupe & Roadster are dead
They do seem to have out niched themselves. I was surprised to read they were trailing in reliability, but part of that could be the complexity of so many different options instead of a few different trim levels.

MINI exec confirms the Coupe & Roadster are dead
Other niche or oddbal cars have that potential too. The question is whether you want to live with one (or store it) for twenty years to find out. I think there are some more enjoyable alternatives.

2015 Smart ForTwo Brabus spied virtually undisguised
Maybe I'm just used to the old one, but this doesn't look like an improvement. At first glance, I thought it was a rebadged Toyota/Scion IQ. (Gosh, Toyota even copies the naming idea: Smart vs. IQ. Geez.)

Cadillac considering V-Series crossover & 911 competitor
I think they probably could build an ultra high hp suv, but a 911 competitor out of the box? That's just medical marijuana talk.

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...
