Living up to its name | 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast First Drive

What's in a name? In the case of the Ferrari 812 Superfast, a numerical reference to its 800-(metric) horsepower, 12-cylinder engine and a not-so-subtle hint at its capability for extreme rates of travel. Only Ferrari, notorious for joyously naming its flagship "LaFerrari," could get away with the moniker. But once you get past the super-obvious nomenclature, it becomes hard to argue with this on-the-nose model name. If you're lucky enough to have sampled the standard F12 and one of the 799…
Superfast? Agreed.

Honda engineer debunks own claim about cause of Takata airbag failures

DETROIT, June 23 (Reuters) - Honda on Friday released a 2013 email in which one of its engineers suggested that he knew some hidden truth about "the root cause" of Takata Corp airbag failures, but the engineer later said he was mistaken.

The inflators can explode…
Honda reiterated its position that it did not conceal knowledge of Takata defects, but instead was itself a victim of deception by Takata officials.

We couldn’t wait for the new Ford Ranger, so we drove one in New Zealand

Let's get this out of the way up front: The truck you see here isn't exactly like the one we'll get when the Ford Ranger returns to the States in 2019. But we think it's very representative, and it's certainly as close as we're going to get for a while. Did I mention we're impatient?

2017 Audi A4: Allroad vs. sedan: We explain the differences

We're rotating 2017 Audi A4 models through our long-term fleet. First came the sedan, followed by the Allroad. They briefly overlapped in our garage. The Allroad is a slightly lifted 'estate' version of the sedan, but the differences go beyond that. We go into great depth in the video above. As you'll discover, there are small tweaks to the trim and styling, and larger changes involving the cargo space and pricing. Michael Austin and John Beltz Snyder explain it. Still need more info? Dive into…
They're the same, but different.
