I consider us a news and opinion website, with stories that run the gamut from 6,000 word investigative pieces to other stuff. We do a mix of original reporting, aggregation and commentary here, often in the same stories. You are welcome to agree or disagree with what we do and say in the comments.

There were valid concerns about the way Tesla approached the ‘Ring record, and whatever that was at Laguna Seca. Along with the questionable ways Elon approaches, well, other things.

If you read the article by Robb (who knows the ‘Ring better than most people currently alive on this planet) it wasn’t “Tesla can’t do this,” it was “Tesla should take time and do this right because the track is on another level.”

You are Jalopnik you should be able to figure out this car is not the top tier V.

The buttons are fine, though I do often reach for a shifter that isn’t there. The infotainment is more annoying to me. I’m not sure I’d want to deal with that system long-term when there are better, faster options out there now.

I like the new Accord a lot. I’d be happy to drive one regularly. Considering you can get one loaded for like $15,000 less (probably more with the right dealer) that’s likely where my money would go instead.

I hadn’t heard about the gearbox issues. I’ll keep an eye on how this one behaves.

It has potential to be some weirdly lusted after Jalop car/inexplicably high BaT seller in like 10-20 years, yeah

I definitely think that’s the case if you’re looking to buy and keep a car long-term. A huge amount of luxury buyers go with leases, so the German high cost of maintenance should be less relevant if you’re only keeping a car for like three years.

I would absolutely take a manual G70 over this. Better infotainment, too.

I really like Honda’s V6 engines in general, and while the 2.0 turbo in the Accord is pretty great, it’s kind of nice to have a real medium-displacement NA six at your disposal. Everything is turbo these days. This feels a bit more unique.

We know that unfortunately, the new NSX isn’t selling all that great, so part of me theorizes this was an attempt to give PMC something to do. But I don’t know that for certain yet.

Only about half the staff is in New York and we’d gladly GTFO if the company let us
