If i remember correctly, they were rated at 180 hp when they came out, but the TRD Action package came with an exhaust and a claimed 10 hp bump. I’m not sure if Toyota just gave the ratings bump to the whole GT-S line at that point, they may well have. That engine was rated at 170 hp in the Corolla and 190 hp in the Read more

David is in route, no doubt. This is his spirit animal w/o the “Sgt Schultz” inspection. If he brings over the Euro model, he will be the only guy in the States with a somewhat matched pair....

Haven’t you heard?  Young people are too busy with their rock and roll and long hair to buy/drive cars.

Dang.  Another car to mourn that I would have never purchased.

You can absolutely divulge that Munro had purchased and sold Tesla stock this year without giving a jackass like Niedermayer any credence. Read more

I’d rather they die than be bastardized. Because nonsense like this is what happens:

I’m not even conservative and even I know this is the wrong move. People buy a ponycar instead of a supercar because of the engine. If I’m buying a Mustang, I want a nice, naturally aspirated V8 up front. They’d be better off just killing the model at that point, and introducing something else that pairs off better to Read more

Munro having stock in a car company whose image he shapes (whether he realizes it or not) is something I felt we should discuss, especially since Jalopnik plans to continue to cover Munro’s findings.

Agreed, it’s something that most companies aren’t doing anymore...looks more aggressive that way, IMO.

I wonder if there was an earlier attempt that was scrapped at some point. I remember talking to a Hyundai salesman who was pumped about the truck they would be selling in about a year, it sounded like they were showing it to dealers - this might even predate that concept since I’m sure that was way back when I was in Read more

So no one is going to call it out as fake?

Okay, I’ll do it...

Fake!

Fortunately we can kind of guess what they look like. They’re Kias, so the cheaper ones will look like Scions but with fewer awkwardly pieced together body panels and the premium models will look like Jaguars with more awkwardly pieced together body panels. They’re modern cars so at least a few of them will be Read more

Completely backlit teasers...so effing tired of this approach. Given how vehicle “styling” nowadays consists of highly aerodynamic generic lumps that we can only tell apart when you can squint at the badges, whatever is being glimpsed isn’t that diff from existing models. Big whoop. Read more

And also, I need to see the owner or get a few clues, at least. My current new-to-me-last-summer car is a 2006 Camry XLE with 80k miles. Beige, 4-cyclinder.

Well, we’re already at an old-lady index of 95. I already knew what I needed to know. The light scratches at each door handle clearly indicated multi-jeweled Read more
