    '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...
  • Porsche's Kitchen for Men

    Porsche's Kitchen for Men
    You're an evil genius, bent on world domination. You have a nuclear weapon simmering away in the basement of your underground lair, deep within some Polynesian volcanic island. You still have to eat. Bring me a sandwich, fool! Hah-hah-hah! Which means...
  • Pasadena on high road of car creation

    Stand on any street corner in Brentwood and watch the coolness, the hotness, roll by: Ferrari Enzo, Lamborghini Gallardo, BMW M6, Cadillac XLR, Porsche 911. These strange visitors from the planet Horsepower are the epitome of auto-exoticism. And yet...
  • 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...
  • Kicking the tires on presidential limousines

    The largest collection of retired presidential limousines is ensconced here at the Henry Ford Museum in a frozen-moment procession that begins with Ronald Reagan's 1972 Lincoln Continental and ends with Theodore Roosevelt's 1902 horse-drawn brougham...
  • Nissan's Cube is coolness in a box

    The science of aerodynamics tells us that air is a fluid with its own viscosity and inertia. When an object such as an automobile moves through it, the object is enveloped in a thin layer known as a laminar flow. Where the laminar airflow shears away from...
  • Honda FCX Clarity: Beauty for beauty's sake

    I've driven lots of cars. I've wallowed like a Russian oligarch pig in the gorgeous mud of a $1.6-million Bugatti Veyron. I've spit tailpipe fire across the midnight Mojave at the wheel of a Lamborghini. I've brushed gape-mouthed peasants aside with the...
  • 2009 Jaguar XF

    2009 Jaguar XF
    Jaguar's reputation for luck -- which is not to have any -- continues with the 2009 Jaguar XF, the company's new and utterly pivotal midsize, V8-powered sedan. In the best of times, launching a luxury sedan against the likes of established winners such as...
  • Suzuki SX4 Crossover

    Suzuki SX4 Crossover
    As a company, Suzuki often seems a riddle wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma, stuffed into a slightly shoddy handbag that smells of cheese. On the one hand, you have the motorcycle side of the company, maker of end-times miracles such as the...
  • 2009 Acura TSX: bells and whistles, but no charisma

    2009 Acura TSX: bells and whistles, but no charisma
    If we accept that there is something interesting about every car, then the 2009 Acura TSX tests this proposition to the breaking point. Is it well made? Are Oprah's diamond earrings real? Of course, it's well made. It's a lux'ed-up, Euro-spec Honda...
  • 2008 Saturn Astra XR: Call it Euro brash

    2008 Saturn Astra XR: Call it Euro brash
    I come from a long line of Europeans -- illiterate, mud-eating Europeans from the Outer Hebrides, to be exact, whose idea of a good time was to go down to the firth and watch the plague victims wash out to sea. Even so, I've always had an affinity for the...
  • Letters: Dan Neil's Joshua Tree trip, bumped from flights

    One sore hiker with an iPod I enjoyed the story about Joshua Tree ["21st Century Solitude," May 4, by Dan Neil]. I am glad everything turned out OK. As you said, at least you didn't have to have a helicopter come and fish you out. I am on the Altadena...
