  • Nationalize GM

    Nationalize GM
    At the moment, D.C. and Detroit are brooding on a Morton's Fork: Watch the American automakers auger in and take hundreds of thousands of jobs with them, or bail out these failed and incorrigible companies whose management so richly deserves whatever hell...
  • 'It' car proves the need for speed

    'It' car proves the need for speed
    Bentley Continental GT? Seen it. Aston Martin DB9? What else you got? Maserati Quattroporte? Wasn't that, like, so last year's product placement on "Entourage"? The trouble with ultra-luxury cars in this town is that their prestige expires faster than...
  • Motor trends

    Motor trends
    There are captains of industry, and then there are commodores. For a few short hours at the start of the Los Angeles Auto Show, the flag-rank executives of the automotive business -- chief executives, head designers and other board-level types -- jetted...
  • It's still Motor City

    It's still Motor City
    Despite its struggle for automotive superiority in the U.S., Detroit still plays host to the largest automotive media event in the country -- the North American International Auto Show. The media frenzy begins next Sunday, Jan. 13, and the show is open to...
  • To the rescue

    To the rescue
    I anthropomorphize cars. I can't help it. Some overly empathetic fold in my brain wants to make a steel-and-glass thing into a character, a persona, an avatar, a material semblance of the people and the company that built it. If you've walked through as...
  • Best of 2007: Rumble Seat

    Best of 2007: Rumble Seat
    With the race for techno-smart, fuel-burning machines at a fevered pitch, 2007 was a banner year for auto-related headlines. On the flip side, pricy luxury sedans and sports cars received loads of accolades and attention despite their fuel-guzzling ways....
  • Best of 2007: Go, speed racers, go

    Best of 2007: Go, speed racers, go
    One is British, the other German. The Brit is a 1-ton, mid-engine atomic pixie stripped to the bare metal floor, a car so loud and raw that when its 220-horsepower supercharged four is at -- how to put this delicately? -- full suck, it sounds like an...
  • Best of 2007: Sure money

    Best of 2007: Sure money
    What's in your portfolio? Are you a high-risk investor or do you prefer the slow and reliable clink-clink of blue-chip stock? Personally, I've got all my money tied up in a racehorse named Barbaro. What? No way! When'd that happen? I would love to see...
  • Best of 2007: A knockout with punch

    Best of 2007: A knockout with punch
    To my co-workers with whom I share the company garage, I'm sorry. The recent presence of the 2007 Jaguar XKR test car left you so breathless as to be practically hypoxic. The resulting blue-faced befuddlement may have been responsible for an uptick in...
  • Best of 2007: Aristocratic tilt

    Best of 2007: Aristocratic tilt
    A couple of months ago I found myself in the vicinity of Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, standing in front of a high-end cheese shop where customers were lined up out the door. Got that? Cheese shop. Waiting. Out the door. It's fair to say the consumers...
  • Best of 2007: Troubled beauty

    Best of 2007: Troubled beauty
    The Maserati Quattroporte is the most beautiful, best-handling super-sedan on the planet. Oh, if that were only enough. This effortlessly gorgeous hunk of Italian swank, this sinister spark from coachbuilder Pininfarina's grinding wheel, ignites envy and...
  • Best of 2007: A hybrid? Seriously?

    Best of 2007: A hybrid? Seriously?
    Proposed: The Lexus LS600h L is the most complicated, most elaborate machine ever to take to four wheels. What "Ulysses" is to light reading and Confucianism is to the simple declarative sentence, this hybrid-powered limousine is nothing less than...
