If anyone is unfamiliar with Sniff Petrol, may I recommend their Question and Answer column, “Ask a Total Prick From A Tesla Forum”
Holy shit, I had no idea that was a character made up by Porter. Makes sense now that I have seen this book in my Twitter feed so much - since I follow Sniff Petrol.
This is brilliant. It’s amazing how quick people can turn entitled and insufferable.
If you want a bit more of a flavour, then Roy’s only media appearance was on Motoring Podcast’s Rear View with my podcasting colleague, Andrew Clews.
I won’t lie–car journalists are lucky. And generally pretty spoiled. And sometimes insufferably entitled. So much so that Richard Porter, a Top Gear veteran and current script editor for The Grand Tour, has created a character who is the ultimate car reviewing hack, who is both hilarious and horrible.
The 2018 Mazda 6 is prettier than ever, and its top-trim interior is downright elegant. It also finally has the thing we’ve been craving from this sporty midsize sedan for years now—more power. But despite improvements to the suspension and an extra 60-plus horses from a new turbocharger, this 6 feels like a move…
Why doesn’t ford... you know... just make more GT’s? If the demand for the things is that high then clearly there is an opportunity to manufacture more of these cars.

The 2019 Subaru Ascent aims to change that, and unlike the black sheep Tribeca it actually looks and feels…
I want to watch Car vs America! The one free episode I saw looked great! I would even pay $20 to stream it (e.g. iTunes or Amazon). Is it available anywhere? I need to go hunt for it again.
Wouldn’t it be more accurate to factor in average wages? They have not risen at the same rate as inflation.
It was indeed quite the snow day.
Last fall, I bought an $800 Jeep Grand Wagoneer that hadn’t run in 12 years. After months of wrenching, in March, I drove with my coworker Andrew Collins on a grand journey from near Detroit, Michigan to the off-road trails of Moab, Utah. Here’s video of that trip’s first leg—the Jeep’s first highway voyage in over a…
Megan is a full-time college student in Oregon who needs a new ride. All the rational people want her to get a Honda or Toyota, but she wants something quirky and different. What car should she buy?
