    Read This: R&T chases down a burglar in the million-mile Miata
    1407184260

    Is the answer always Mazda Miata? We discussed this in passing on the Autoblog Podcast earlier this week, and most assuredly the answer is "no." For example, the little MX-5 would be a terrible people carrier, and it'd be useless off road. You can't really tow anything of substance with it, ...

    Video: Ducati Diavel lines up against Corvette Stingray on the drag strip
    1407178680

    Car vs Bike: It's a story we've heard told and seen played out countless times before, but it's one of which we never get tired. Or seldom, anyway, especially when it pits such lust-worthy machinery against each other. In this latest drag race is the Chevy Corvette Stingray Convertible piloted ...

    Spy Shots: BMW 6 Series Convertible gets a little work done for 2015
    1407017100

    Truth be told, I've never really found the modern BMW 6 Series to be a particularly attractive car, in Coupe, Convertible, or sedan Gran Coupe forms. This current generation certainly looks a whole lot better than the Bangle-fied Six that came before it to my eyes, but on the whole, I find much ...

    Official: Aston Martin crafts one-off equestrian-themed DB9 Volante
    1406818860

    Ask most people what kind of cars Aston Martin makes and they'll probably tell you it makes sports cars. But it doesn't. No, Aston Martin actually makes luxury GTs that focus at least as much on fine craftsmanship as they do on outright performance. In other words, any Aston Martin – from ...

    1406734200

    Some stories are so sad and depressing, they make you want to go back to bed and pull the covers over your head.

    Auctions: 'Blood Muscle' auction to sell impressive collection of ill-begotten classic cars
    1406727060

    The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. But being a criminal can involve more than just taking a trip to the big house; it can also mean losing possessions purchased from any ill-gotten gains. Still, one man's loss is another's gain, and if you're in Lodi, NJ, on ...

    1406465880

    Big plans are afoot at Bentley. The quintessentially British automaker has just about signed off on the final version of its new SUV, and will surely roll out more versions of the Continental in the coming years, but that's not all.

    Official: BMW begins restoring Elvis Presley's 507 [w/video]
    1406238120

    Imagine the King of Rock n' Roll driving a car and you'll likely picture a pink Cadillac or a yellow De Tomaso shot full of holes. But Elvis also owned a 1957 BMW 507 roadster, and now that roadster is returning home to BMW headquarters. The 507 was a rare bird, of which only 254 examples were ...

    Why It Pays To Be A Good Test Taker 1406221140

    The Gas Guzzler schedule, with mpg ratings and charges that haven't changed since 1991, lays out which fuel-swillers owe what to Uncle Sam. I started thinking about the "Gas Guzzler Tax" – considerably less well known as The Energy Tax Act of 1978 – when I was driving Dodge's new ...

    Never heard of ATS? Nope, we're not talking about the Cadillac sports sedan.

ATS was only on the map for a couple of years, producing models like the 2500 GT and ...

    With a catalog packed with shades of orange and yellow, the Lamborghini Aventador doesn't shy away from bright colors. But the stock palette still pales in comparison to this latest art car. This technicolor Aventador Roadster was created by Franco-American artist and musician Duaiv, who ...

    Report: Next-gen LaCrosse, Cascada convertible coming to Buick showrooms in 2016
    1406152980

    It's difficult to overstate how significant the post-bankruptcy years have been for General Motors' Buick brand. Arguably the most improved American automaker, Buick has rounded out its range with an excellent compact in the Verano, a well-balanced midsizer in the Regal and a segment-busting ...

    Study: Convertible owners more educated, well to do
    1406150820

    A new study from Experian Automotive seeks to quantify the traits that identify the convertible-loving droptop driver. Of course, after reading through the findings, this just kind of confirms a lot of things that have been kind of obvious about convertible owners for kind of a long ...

    1406136540

    Usually automakers announce changes to their lineup individually on a vehicle-by-vehicle basis, but sometimes it all comes at once – especially when the changes are ones we either expected or might not otherwise notice. That's the path Volkswagen has gone with changes to its US lineup for ...

    Official: Chop the top of your new Dodge Viper for $35,000
    1405978260

    We have good news, and we have bad news. First, the good: It's now possible to get a brand-new Dodge Viper roadster, which is nice, considering we're in the dead of summer and many of us like wind-in-the-hair motoring. Now, the bad: This is not a factory option from the automaker, instead coming ...

    Video: Take a trip down Jaguar's memory lane with Xcar
    1405812660

    For decades, Jaguar has been a company of two minds. On one hand, there are its luxurious, British saloon cars. They might be quick, even sporty, but when it comes down to it, they usually put a focus on comfort and accommodations above all. On the other hand, Jag has its sports cars to really ...

    1405804740

    It's easy to forget that high-performance cars are not limited in size to something like a Lotus Elise or Mazda MX-5. They can get big. Take Lamborghini, for example. It might focus on combining low curb weights and high-output engines, but an Aventador very nearly occupies the same amount of ...
