Chevrolet Camaro SS

Chevrolet Camaro SS

Sometimes less is more but it’s not the American way. There are days a plain old Big Gulp just doesn’t do it. Only the Super XXL Mega Gulp in the commemorative thermal tanker will quench your thirst (never mind that it fulfills the hydration and caloric needs of a small village in [...]

Volkswagen GTI 2010

Volkswagen GTI 2010

America is a nation that drives. Sadly, for many it’s a chore, a necessary slog off to work or shuttling the kids about. You have to drive. Might as well make it fun.

2010 Lincoln MKT with EcoBoost

2010 Lincoln MKT with EcoBoost

Bias. You may not suffer from this human foible but I do.  That’s a tough admission.  My job is to leave preconceived notions on the curb.  Still, when the big Lincoln MKT rolled up for its 7 day stay with me, all my brain could muster up was “Hmmm, my parents are visiting.  They’ll like [...]

Acura ZDX with Technology Package

Acura ZDX with Technology Package

Humans like to put things in categories.  The food pyramid has your proteins, grains, fruits and veggies all neatly divided.  Houses come in craftsman, modern, tudor, or McMansion.  Just about everything in our society is organized and categorized.  Except maybe Pee Wee Herman.
Common automobile tags are sedan, coupe, luxury rides, convertible, SUV, and pony car.  [...]

Tesla Roadster Sport

Tesla Roadster Sport

Cars are so much more than transportation.  They’re art, pop culture icons, and like it or not, status symbols.  Add musical instrument to the list.  The sound of a car is critical to its mission.   There’s a reason why a Dodge Viper does not sound like a Honda Civic.
If you get a chance to see [...]

BMW X6 xDrive50i

Hey there Mr./Ms. Unique Person. You deserve a unique car. Sports sedans are a dime a dozen these days. Luxury crossovers aren’t far behind. Perhaps an SAC is what you’re looking for. Want one? You’ll have to shop at a BMW store because at the moment, the only way to get one is to buy [...]

Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon Debuts at NY Auto Show

Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon Debuts at NY Auto Show

The CTS-V is one of the Driven teams favorite performance vehicles. It just got a whole lot more practical with the addition of the Sport Wagon variant. You need to fetch a bag of mulch or get your kid off to piano lessons right quick? 556 HP, Magnetic Ride Control and Brembo [...]

2010 Porsche Cayman

2010 Porsche Cayman

Porsches aren’t like other cars.  The ignition is on the left hand side of the steering column.  Their designs are fiercely original.  The company doesn’t compete on price alone.  There’s also a good chance you’ll find the engine behind the passengers.  No, not many car companies do it the way Porsche does.
Desirable?  Sure.  Affordable?  No [...]

Bentley Continental Supersports

Bentley Continental Supersports

Chances are you will never lay eyes on a Bentley Continental Supersports.   It’s produced in very small numbers.  Ironic, because in a word it’s about more.  More exclusive than an already rare standard Continental GT.  More cylinders than two Toyota Corollas.  More money too (but you probably figured that one out by now).  The economy [...]

2010 Audi A4 Premium Plus

2010 Audi A4 Premium Plus

Automakers dream of creating vehicles that people can identify from 50 paces.  This can go horribly wrong (I’m talking to you Pontiac Aztek).  Audi has always done it right with the stylish A4. Naming all its competitors would eat up valuable space and time but the short list includes BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class.  [...]
