Happy New Year, Autoblog faithful!

Today marks the start of 2014, and with it, we tie a bow on the automotive year that was 2013 – an annum filled with comings, goings, controversies, triumphs, tragedies and big reveals. We're ready for more surprises, more great cars, more seismic shifts, and more unexpected heroes and villains to fill the calendar in 2014, too, because the global auto industry is the most fascinating and dynamic business we know of.

We're pleased you've joined us at the start of the New Year, and we look forward to bringing you the best of everything on wheels in 2014. From all of us here at Autoblog, we wish you a safe, happy and prosperous New Year.

If you've got any automotive resolutions or predictions you'd like to share, be sure to pipe up in Comments.

      I'm hoping the "SHOP FOR A VEHICLE" button tab thingy at the bottom of Autoblog goes away in the year 2014.

      I resolve to quit coming to this website if that stupid "Shop for a vehicle" pop up doesn't go away every time I open the site.

        Oh my God, yes, this! I was going to write this too. I'm ok with autoblog having this feature *somewhere*, but not on every freaking page. Step back autoblog, and realize that for 99.99+% of people who visit this site on a daily basis, it's useless (and takes up too much space on a tablet).

          I have adblock, is there something special I have to set up to remove it?

      Drive my Corvette more... lots more. It will never be a collectible! I've been overly concerned with resale value and the old "never driven in the rain" line. Who cares... I need to drive it in the rain. I need to enjoy it for what it is, a fun car.

      Sell my 2005 Acura TL and start saving for a Porsche Cayenne Diesel to buy in 2015 for the wife.

        You act like Cayenne's cost $450,000. I like to buy my cars in cash. I will probably purchase a used one for around $50,000. I have a reverse purchase method. Instead of making payments to a bank and losing interest, I make payments to myself in an account that adds interest. Then I pull it out when I'm ready to buy. So you're basically saying that people shouldn't have to "save up" for a car or house down payment or anything? The money just magically appears in their bank account? What planet do you live on? Or what tree do you have growing in your back yard.

          I would like to find this tree he has LOL. Because I suffer from having to save money as well. Poor us.

        If you need to save up to buy a Porsche you shouldn't be buying one.

          Dear pjtocci, I'm not sure what you are talking about because I have never discussed "income" on this website. Maybe you have taken into account the cars that I have owned or own or plan to buy and have made your own assumptions, however, this is a car forum and therefore I'm bringing up the correct topic matter in reference to this website. Although I own or have owned some relatively nice cars, it's hardly anything to brag about per se. I have never purchased a car that cost over $75,000 in my life and probably 50% of the cars that we see on this website or actually take the time to discuss do cost a bit more than the average family sedan. But what can I say? I'm a car guy. I work hard so I can spend my hard earned money on the things that make me happy. And buying and driving cars makes me happy. So if you have an issue with people who enjoy the research, analyzation, discussion, purchase process, selling process, corporate business structure, price point comparisons, and performance comparisons of automobiles, then maybe you have come to the wrong website. I will continue to discuss these matters openly, and if they have offended you, or continue to offend you... well, I'm not going to apologize.

          I assume JB will come back snarling about how much money he makes.
