Mitsubishi Mirage: Worst New Car This Millennium?

If you want a $10k car, buy a Micra…or a bus pass.

So I know a headline that starts with a question is always supposed to be a ‘no!’ answer bait and switch.  But in the case of the Mitsubishi Mirage, the answer is decidedly yes. 

Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition, from Chevy with Love

500 units, 650 hp and plenty of special-edition goodies that will make you want one. 

Just in case you didn’t think the Corvette capable enough (and by capable, I mean devilishly fun), Chevrolet has a new limited edition in store for you: the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R.

007’s Next Ride Could be Built in A’murica

Well, maybe not quite the next DBS.

Aston Martin could be opening a factory nearby the Mercedes-Benz plant in Tuscaloosa, Vance, Alabama, company boss Andy Palmer tells AutoCar. Don’t necessarily expect DB9s and Vantages to come out of it, however.

Buying a Ford Right Now is Like Buying an iPhone 6 when the 6S is Coming the Next Week

Tough luck for anyone who wanted latest-and-greatest but settled for gotta-have-it-now.

Starting this summer, Ford plans to roll out its latest in car connectivity, Sync 3, according to Automotive News. The new system is supposed to be considerably less frustrating to use than Ford’s current seldom-praised MyFordTouch and respective MyLincolnTouch systems. There’s a catch, though.

Doesn’t Matter if You Outbid by a Dollar or a Mile, Winning’s Winning

…But is it more than you can afford, Pal?

The Big Ones?  They’re Nitrous Express, not NOS, and they’re not hooked up to anything anyway. What I’m trying to say is that Brian O’Connor never delivered a 10 second car.

Introducting 25km/h With Evan

What on earth is 25 km/h with Evan, you ask?  Well, let me try and explain it. And then let me try to make it interesting.   I have recently come in to a situation where I get to drive a lot of new cars. Like 10 to 30 a day. Some times 30 of the same model, some times all different cars.  Recently I dove an M4 back to back with a bright pink Mitsubishi Mirage.

The 50th Anniversary Celebrations Go on with Two Limited Edition Shelby Mustangs

The celebrations of the Mustang’s 50th anniversary have been quite spectacular, starting with a complete redesign in 2014 to give us the S550 Mustang. But why put an end to a good thing? Let’s keep celebrating! That’s at least what seems to be Ford’s mindset at the moment as they have announced some more goodies to look forward to.

GM ups the Ante on Their All-electric Cadillac

It seems as though GM has heard our prayers. The manufacturer announced that their luxury, all-electric model, the Cadillac ELR, will receive its fair share of updates and upgrades for 2016.
