Like clockwork, automakers usually discontinue and replace their existing models with new ones every four to five years. However, a few cars occasionally escape the clutches of obsolescence, living on to be comically long-in-the-tooth and arthritic. These six cars are among the oldest currently on sale.
It’s common knowledge that automakers change everything when they send a concept car to the production line. So when Nissan sent its Sports Sedan Concept into production as the 2016 Maxima, what did they have to change? How about let’s find out.
It’s no secret that the brand-new Scion iA sedan is closely related to the 2016 Mazda 2. But just how close? Thanks to the dark voodoo of state-of-the-art image slider technology, we can find out.
As Jeremy Clarkson's future hangs in the balance, so does the fate of Top Gear. But even as the show treads upon shaky ground, automotive journalism continues to follow in its footsteps. In the past, automotive journalism needed Top Gear's influence. But much like its revered host, the show is now doing more harm…
Jeremy Clarkson's latest saga continues, and it doesn't seem as if things are boding well for the BBC's beloved Top Gear television series. Based on recent reports, it seems that the end could be near for the British TV host, if not for Top Gear itself. Brace yourself.
Supercars aren’t that all that great. No, I don’t mean to rustle your jimmies. I just don’t think present day Ferraris and Lamborghinis light a fire under the automotive industry’s ass like their predecessors used to. So before you light my ass on fire, hear me out for a moment.
When Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen agreed to answer reader questions for Jalopnik recently, it didn't take long for readers to ask him about the brand's controversial new naming scheme. His response wasn't terribly surprising, and as a result, my suggestion to him might not be either. But here I go anyway.
Gasoline prices are averaging less than $2.50 now in America, which has consequently fueled a rise in truck and SUV sales. But that doesn't mean small cars are out. Actually, the segment only saw a rather insignificant two percent drop in sales last month. So tell me: when is Volkswagen going to get in on this?
Did you know it's February 2015? I hope so. If you didn't, move out from under your rock and buy a calendar, dammit. Anyway, this month marked the 107th annual Chicago Auto Show. It was sort of a big deal. And it also totally sucked this year.
Ram's iconic crosshair grille is one of its signature trademarks. It's also been around now for over 20 years. When a Ram truck — usually lifted, with cheesy rims and toting a Magpul sticker in the rear window — rolls up behind you in traffic, you expect to see it in your rear view mirror. But soon, that could…
We're only two episodes in, and already AMC's new Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul is turning out to be brilliant television. However — and I'm really sorry to have to do this — I'm going to have to call out the show on a questionable car choice.
It's no secret that America's 25-year import rule on cars sucks and has always sucked. Sure, maybe there's hope our idiotic import rule will change someday, but until we figure out how to change it, we're stuck with it. But thankfully, however, there are still a few cool non-US market cars we can legally bring…
While the Pontiac Trans Sport could possibly be one of General Motors’ greatest letdowns, there have been plenty of other botched products in its checkered history. Some of them could’ve been truly special — even revolutionary — had GM done a better job of doing its job. Let’s take a look at three of them.
The 2001 Ford Explorer Sportsman concept was built for fishermen, only displays the speed you're driving in Euro jargon and isn't legal for highway use. But right now, for less than the price of a normal street-legal Ford Expedition that tells you how fast you're going in proper miles per hour, you can own it.
About an hour before a frigid winter sun would rise over the western Kentucky city of Bowling Green, disaster struck the National Corvette Museum located on the northeastern side of town. A sinkhole some forty feet wide, and deep enough to almost reach the bowels of hell, opened up in the museum’s Skydome, swallowing…
Music and motoring go hand in hand like peanut butter and grape jelly. The both of them just naturally click, and have done so since some miracle worker of an engineer figured out how to wire up a radio and a few speakers in an automobile.
Lately, I've been considering purchasing a late model, low mileage "beater" I could swipe for less than $4,000. And wouldn't you know it? I found a 2008 Saturn Vue with less than 70,000 miles for less than my theoretical budget at a local used car lot.
It's pop quiz time. If I were to ask you what the Commonwealth of Kentucky has contributed to the automotive world without so much as whispering the names "Chevrolet Corvette" or "Toyota Camry," what could you come up with? I'll give you a few moments.
