The Saab 9-2x exists in that strange place of mostly forgotten cars only made for a few years. With the MazdaSpeed6 it remains sought after by those who know, and overlooked by most as a product of parts bin rummaging and badge engineering. But we wanted to give the 9-2x some rare screen time to […]

BMW’s E24 chassis 6 Series was always one of the standout styling cars of their lineup. And the M version, was a rare beast. We got the chance to drive a very clean example, Mark’s 1987 M6 with 101k miles on the clock. It’s a case of meeting your heroes and a celebrity all rolled […]

We encourage our audience to buy used cars, especially if it means owning something worth aspiring to, but out of reach when new. Paul has owned multiple Porsches by following this logic. And now, I (Todd) have succumbed to Porsche ownership. I didn’t set out to buy a Cayenne. I’d driven many variations of them […]

As the start of our new shorter-review series called “Fast Blasts” we finally get the chance to put a Porsche 944 Turbo on camera. This is an often overlooked Porsche, and as prices on 911s skyrocket, it remains a bargain. Turbos, like this 1989, are downright cheap. Maintenance can catch up quickly and they are […]

We’ve reviewed both these cars before and enjoy them for their attitude and history, but never gravitated toward them for a fun road. In truth, both platforms are a poor structure for making a world-beating car. The Challenger may be a two-door coupe, but at 4,500lbs it is as big and heavy as many seven […]

The bailout of General Motors and Chrysler stained both company’s reputations but also began a renaissance in American car performance. One look at the line up of either company reveals improved interiors, better styling, and more performance rear-wheel-drive monsters than we could have ever imagined a mere five years ago. To prove this point, look […]

The Honda Accord V6 Coupe is a mid-sized FWD coupe with a six-speed manual, making it about as common as a unicorn. Yet many enthusiasts have asked us about this car as a possible option to bridge the gap of commuting and carving. When we got the Mercedes CLA and Audi A3 on our shoot […]

As a general rule, we’re fans of Audi. Paul owned a much-loved A4 for about a decade. Todd has recommended them to many fans. So we approached the all-new A3 with a lot of excitement. With a starting price identical to the Mercedes CLA, the A3 prices itself into a crowded part of the marketplace. […]

We haven’t driven many Mercedes models on the show, as most of their line-up prices itself out of discussion. While we have some time in the C-class, it’s been a long time since the three-pointed star offered a new model well under 50k. The little CLA has styling similar to the the CLS four-door coupe, […]

As journalists, we have access to various track events throughout the year and recently attended the “Rocky Mountain Drive Event” held in Denver. When we realized the much-loved Fiesta ST would be in attendance alongside the all new seventh-generation VW GTI, we knew it was time to pack the cameras and shoot a comparison. Though […]
