Depends on where you live, I'd guesstimate more like 1 in 8 cars are older than 16 here in SoCal. With housing prices what they are, almost anyone can afford a new(ish) car. Plus I think the data is skewed, meaning those older cars that are registered don't tend to rack up as many miles as the newer ones, so the Read more

FWIW, Saab had a similar clutchless manual in the mid-’90s 900 called Sensonic. It was a massive commercial flop.

I bought a completely original, clean, 102K-mile, white 6-spd ‘99 C2 coupe for $13K a couple of years ago and had seen plenty of others before, so I know it was a good deal. Convertibles are slightly less valuable than the coupes, but $17K for a clean 70K-mile example that isn’t silver or black, and with fixed IMS is Read more

What Alex really needs is this 51K mile ‘09 9-5 wagon for $11K. Fantastic cars, I own an ‘07 tuned to 300 hp on E85 and it’s just a hoot to drive! Read more

My theory is that many full-size SUV drivers choose these vehicles specifically because they feel safer in a crash. Therein lies the problem: they start from the premise that they WILL crash. There is no focus on accident avoidance (which is obviously better in a smaller car) and they just want to save themselves when Read more

This 600 hp Saab 9-5 (dynoed at 523whp) was listed for only $10,000. Seriously overpowered for FWD, but should provide endless entertainment on rolling starts.

Never thought I'd see the day when E85 is double the price of regular.

My favorite NFS was and always will be Porsche Unleashed. Amazing physics and graphics for its time! I still play it occasionally.

My Porsche 996 C2 coupe (manual) and Saab 9-5 Aero wagon currently in my garage cover everything I need, although they couldn’t be more opposite in every way!

As much as I lust after the RS6, I like my Sportwagons used and under $20K. And then I come to Jalopnik to vent my frustrations about carmakers not offering wagons. Read more
