I’m telling you, it happens. Had a few customers looking at V60 Cross Countries which granted is on an old platform, decided to get a fully loaded Outback instead. The same thing with the Q5, folks admitted it was nicer but not $10,000 nicer than a top trim Forester. These are folks that can “afford” luxury cars but…
It must be Christmas in February, because the new Volvo V60 wagon has been revealed ahead of its Feb. 21 debut and it looks stunning.
Um.... use a tripod and lower the shutter speed? Some of these look great, and I’m generally fond of a little underexposure, but... they do look too dark overall, imo. But you got to drive this amazing car and take pictures of it... I didn’t, so...
I am not a fan of black and gold on cars, but holy shit does this thing look amazing. Especially in the lighting in that first shot.
Thank you posting this link.
240 HP out of a 3.0 is pretty nice. Glad to see a review of a “normal” fun car - anyone can buy one of these things for around 30k and spend the next 20 years making it into something like your version of this. They also feel pretty special right out of the box before you do a bunch of cool stuff. The first time I got…
I would sleep exactly never with this in my garage.
Great looking car. If this has the exhaust stated above not only does it sound great but it is comically loud. When I run my 3.2 with stock headers and a muffler delete but WITH a cat is so loud I have to push it out of the car hole in the am so as not to wake the fam. Also if 911 brakes are anything but rock hard and…

The boomers dying off is going to solve a LOT of problems.
Won’t the baby boomer die off include a HUGE tanking of car evaluations, as collections are dispatched by sons and daughters with zero interest in maintaining a collection of cars, or even cars themselves? I imagine an influx of a massive amount of vehicles into the markets in the next decade. Hell, the most recent…
I’m very excited for the day when our generation is spending six figures on, like, a “third off the line” Honda Prelude SH at auction.
Here are my 912's both ‘68's the blue us US Spec and the Grey is Euro Spec
I’m a simple man. I see Ontario plates, I star.
You know why the STi is still relevant? Some of us do track days. The STi is one of the few cars in that price range that is built to take this abuse. The Focus RS was a failure for that, thanks to the flimsy diff. Anyone buying a newer car for the track knows this is the best choice.
I could say the mysticism started when the WRX came over in late 2001, but I’d be lying. The 2.5 RS is genesis as far as the US goes:
The STI really shines in the snow, that’s where the DCCD settings get fun to play with.
This was an amazing read (especially with my professor lecturing in the background.) And beautiful pictures. Looking forward to the next one.
Nice to see some Vancity content! I can literally see the area in Stanley Park where you took those pictures from my office right now.
