Hi Kristen!  I’m confused, I thought you left Jalopnik?  Are you back now?

The level of stupidity in this country that has been exposed by the trump “presidency” and, especially, the Covid situation is astounding.

I’m not a finance guy, so if this is ham-fisted please forgive me.  Is a possible, or likely, scenario that some investor or ownership group swoops in and buys Hertz for pennies on the dollar, waits this thing out and then relaunches to great success when things begin to return to normal?

Of course it is related to the Northrop design, all flying wing aircraft and concepts are. Also, Boeing has been exploring this concept for many, many years. Why no mention of that in your article? Also, the B-2 Stealth bomber is the most notable flying wing aircraft ever made. Why no mention of that in your article? Read more

The truth about Michigan’s infrastructure is that during the last economic downturn, tens of thousands of high earning, high educated families left Michigan...the total numbers are huge.  With their departure, massive amounts of tax revenue left the state, making it almost impossible for Michigan to maintain its Read more

Ah yes, haptic touch.  You mean like I’ve been using on my Android for nearly 10 years?

Not to overstate the obvious which I’m sure millions of others feel, but I am sickened by the fact that NOBODY has the balls to stand up to this douchebag!  Hold the line!  Call his sorry ass out!  Tell him to get lost if he won’t follow the fucking rules!  Holy shit, America.  Grow a pair!!!!

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome is the definition of insanity.

No need to justify it, my friend!  You made a smart choice and you shouldn’t have to explain it!  Enjoy!

Noted!  Yeah, I have no ownership experience to go on, but I remember really liking the looks of the 405 and 505 when I was a kid.  I hope they return to US shores and showrooms.

In addition to my other comment here, let me state for the record: There is no shame in driving a crossover! It isn’t a damn minivan! Stop acting like it is some sort of automotive war crime! “Oh I deeply loathe crossovers...”. Why? Because they are highly useful vehicles that deliver luxury, performance and utility? Read more

Can we please stop with throwing out some sort of disclaimer about these not being “purist” Porsches every time there’s a discussion of the Macan or Cayenne? Porsche has been making crossovers for nearly TWO DECADES! The money they make from the Macan and Cayenne pays for everything else Porsche does, much like a Divis Read more

How do you think Eric Prince had so much success with the disgrace that was Blackwater?  There are hundreds if not thousands of these nutcases eager to get paid cash for high risk operations...and the possibility of hurting or killing people.

I’m old enough to remember when Renault and Peugeot both sold cars in the US.  I wish they would come back.  Both have some really cool models in their lineups.

The wait won’t be long at all. Taycan is the first of a major salvo of EV models coming from the VAG, with other manufacturers poised to follow.

I’ve always thought that if I someday were able to buy a new 911 I’d seek to factory delete the rear seats.

All I’ll say is, enjoy the hell out of it.  You are a lucky guy for the next few days.
