QOTD: Too Big For Your Car’s Britches?

Uh oh. We’re talkin’ size today. That’s right, a topic tailor-made for awkwardness, embarrassment, even shame — something best not spoken of in polite company. Just amongst your close friends and, perhaps, a doctor… whose brother is a salesman. The fact of the matter is, sometimes we don’t fit in the cars we love. Or, we can’t cram our gangly or girthy frames into a less desirable car with several redeeming qualities, thus striking it from our mental list of…

Infiniti Q Inspiration Concept First Look

At this week’s 2018 Detroit Auto Show, Infiniti unveils its Q Inspiration Concept, a design study likely to foreshadow the next-generation Infiniti Q70 midsize sedan. While it’s easy to admire the Q concept for its strikingly simple aesthetic alone, the real takeaway is its use of Infiniti’s new four-cylinder variable compression engine. The VC-Turbo was initially shown last fall in the Infiniti QX50 SUV, but this is the first indication of how it might affect design and packaging in a…

2018 BMW 440i Coupe Review: Bimmer-esque

– Detroit, Michigan Verdict 6 / 10 In many ways the BMW 440i Coupe should embody the qualities that driving enthusiasts love most about the brand: handling chops, pace, and elegance in a uniquely German wrapper. And for just a few days of driving it – Southeast Michigan was inundated with snow for most of the time I was loaned the rear-drive car – it represented those things fairly well.

Nothing Lasts Forever, but Your Saab Might (if You Sign on to a New Parts Warranty)

One day, if we’re lucky, we’ll see a documentary showcasing old Saabs in their natural habitat. The slinky 9-3 plying the interstate between Burlington, Vermont and the Connecticut coast, a valiant 9000 prowling between a Denver lawyer’s office and home, and a black 900 convertible sneaking up on a rural farmers’ market. David Attenborough will handle narration duties. Until that time, we can draw comfort that a conservation program exists to keep this extinct brand on the road. Started last…
