    I was forced to use manual mode in a Mini Countryman I had as a rental. I must say that I resented doing this. This was a number of years ago, so the MINI had first-generation EPAS. BMW seems to have...

    I agree that it's interesting, but, at least here in the States people drive cars with manual transmissions because they want to drive a car with a manual transmission. I think it is heading towards...

    There is a part of me, a stupid part admittedly, that wonders whether or not the Buick would be more fun at normal road speeds. Yes, The Sabre is awful in almost every way, but the M5 would be so...

    The real question is: will Jeep continue to be more valuable than the colossus in aggregate?

    No competition! Except in fuel economy, the Buick is superior in every metric! As an added bonus when you corner, your hubcaps fall off.

    I noticed a Mk. Z today and thought it was a handsome car; the Continental is (was) too. Too bad they were built on the woeful Taurus platform.

    It's interesting the technology that this otherwise lazy and recidivist design could be ordered with.

    What season is that from? Things got pretty dire towards the end, and despite (I think) having...

    This is an interesting point. I'm not one for conspiracy theories, so I do not think this is a conscious effort, but the modern turbocharged engine does seem to be priming us for the electric future....

    There was a great photo circulating a week or so ago of a bunch of those stupid scooters alight and being used as a barricade by French protesters. The French are good at that sort of thing...

    Considering this thing weighs about the same as a '59 Cadillac, it probably needs all that torque to climb a 5% grade.

    BMW seems to be creatively lost; big heavy car with a V8 motor is hardly an...

    Fair enough, that would require a lot of commitment that most casual bike commuters aren't interested in. I had fun biking in Mexico City when I was there, but the 7,500ft (2,200m) elevation and the...

    Yeah, we're certainly not at the point where having an EV as your only car is practical, but for those with multiple cars (perhaps a uniquely-American problem says the man with three cars and two...

    Yep, some people, like Tesla, are getting a bit more clever with their motors, but by and large it's all those damned laptop batteries shoved under the floor. Unfortunately, the more clever they get,...

    Don't you think that particular shark was jumped when they put a V10 in it?

    It does make sense for it to be a purpose-built EV, but that price is exorbitant.

    Do you folks in the Eurozone get government rebates from buying EVs?

    Good stuff, MoS!

    Do you have the export version of this generation? I passed my test in a weird plum/brown pearl painted wagon of that generation.

    EDIT: Goddamn, I was spot on. Toyota called...

    First good-looking Ferrari in quite some time, though definitely nothing unique or special; I see some Supra and some F-Type in the nose, Mazda RX-Vision in the body and tail, and 911 in the roof.

    Is this the most-American (albeit shrunken) looking non-American car? I think it might be. Nissan takes the naming stakes with the Gloria Brougham, but this has just the right amount of faux-rococo...

    I am curious what the stereotype of the ShitiGolf driver is in the GTA. In Montreal, they always seem lost, but then again, so does everyone else.

    Actually this is a fascinating thought...
