The Corvette C8 is Mid-Engine Masterpiece

Since 1953, Corvettes that have made it into production have been two things: Front engine-rear wheel drive, and relatively affordable. Since 1959, designers and engineers in the young program have flirted with the idea of sticking the motor behind the driver.

Best Cars that Need a Stick

Since pretty much forever, vehicles in the US offered a manual transmission in every model built. It was so common, the manual trans was known as “standard” shift, since it was the default choice.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS Review: Little to Complain About

Lincoln Navigator L Raises the Bar for Big Luxury SUVs

The other day, we had a chance to look closely at the 2019 Lincoln Navigator.  It is one of the largest – if not biggest – full-sized SUVs on the road.

Great Cars You Can Still Buy with a Manual Transmission

There’s a lot of doom and gloom in the automotive press about the end of the manual transmission. Automakers are obsessed with gas mileage, EVs, and autonomous vehicles, so there’s a certain sad logic to the stick shift eventually going away. Still, that kind of thinking ignores the great options available right now. While there are currently 40 new vehicles offering a manual in the US, ...

Why You Need an Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

The first time you drive the DBS Superleggera it takes you by surprise.  You expect it to be good, the DB11 has something of the feel of a well-tailored suit.  The DBS is like finding out the suit is being worn by a heavyweight boxer.  Use the 12 cylinders to their full potential and gearing up through the transmission with the wheel mounted paddles results in a crescendo of noise.  And ...

2018 Kia Stinger GT Review: Performance To Back Up The Looks

Stepping Up To The Stinger If you told me Kia would make a car capable of competing with the German and Japanese offerings a decade ago, I would have laughed.

They were inexpensive for a reason. The build ...
