The Most Interesting Toyota Camry...Ever!!

On: Mon, Nov 10, 2014 at 1:52PM | By: Teddy Field


The Most Interesting Toyota Camry...Ever!! test 1-1

The words "wow" and "holy crap", have never been used to describe a Toyota Camry. This silently-snooty transportation device has mastered mediocrity and elevated adequacy to an art form. They sell like hotcakes because everybodyknows that you “can’t go wrong with a Camry”. But Toyota’s CEO recently decreed that forthcoming cars bearing his family name, be injected with some excitement. And this 2015 Toyota Camry has just annihilated our perception of the most boring car on earth.

Vantastic: Tony Hawk's Son Builds 70's Van Inspired Scion Xb test 1-1

If you’re old enough to ‘respect the van’, then you’ll love this 70’s style Scion xB. It’s got orange stripes, tacky wood, vinyl seats, and Cragars! But it was designed by a 21-year-old, and that will make you feel ancient…

Chrysler Unveils Fleet of Show Cars Ahead of SEMA test 1-1

The SEMA Show in Las Vegas is a big deal in the car world. It offers automakers the chance to ‘go nuts’, and create wild customs that are designed to ‘wow’ people.

Kia Bringing "High Performance" K900 to SEMA... Possible Production Model? test 1-1

Just last week, we reported that Kia Motors hired NBA star LeBron James to hawk their their slow-moving Kia K900 luxury sedan. Now, they’re taking their K900 revitalization plan even further, by presenting a heavily modded factory show car at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. But will a rumbling V8 performance model get people to notice?


 

Official: Honda Will Introduce The U.S. Spec 2016 Honda HR-V At The LA Auto Show

2016 Honda HR-V test 2

With the Ebola outbreak, rising insurance premiums due to ObamaCare, and the general threat of violence from ISIS, Russia, and the entire Middle East, we really could use another compact crossover right about now. Lucky for us, Honda’s going to give us one next month at the LA Auto Show. And while the sporty 2016 Honda HR-V won’t be able to cure infectious diseases, it does have a Magic Seat, and some other unique features...


An Open Letter To Acura

Acura NSX Concept test 2

For those of you old enough to remember, Acura, the luxury brand of Honda, decided to take a plunge into the world of performance cars.  They toiled for years over what to build, how to execute it, and if it would be a success. Well, in 1991 the NSX debuted and although you didn't hear it here first, the NSX was a raging success. The result of all that hard work? An all-aluminum-bodied, mid-engined sports car boasting a Honda-built V6 making nearly 300 horsepower (in 1991 that was a lot) with a max engine speed of nearly 8,000 rpm. Honda employed arguably the best designer in the business, and maybe even the best ever. Want proof? The next time a Pininfarina-styled NSX passes you on the highway and you nearly snap your neck trying to place it in the archives of your brain's automaker catalogue, ask yourself if that car looks like it's from 1991.

It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's a...Car?

AeroMobil test 2

Throughout the history of the transportation industry, people have always had futuristic ideas. Some of them seem outdated today, but, at one time, they were innovations. Back before the turn of the twentieth century, bicycle builders envisioned the motorization of the bicycle. Step-by-step, this vision became a reality. Before long, one seat wasn't enough, so coach builders were brought into the fold, and they provided bodies, and some of them took to engine building.


Will Buick build a new Grand National?

GNX Rendering by Car & Driver test 2

The 1980s were a Grade A, pasteurized version of the 1950s. Your TV still sat on the floor, encased in wood. Kids still respected their elders. Our president was still staring down the Russians. Cars were slathered in chrome, and luxury still meant a vinyl roof and wire hubcaps. Not much had really changed since Ike left office; then Buick came along and changed everything.

Say hello to the future. Say hello to the Buick Grand National...


California Puts the Brakes on Google

California Puts the Brakes on Google test 1-1

Not long ago, Google presented the world with a completely autonomous vehicle that required no help from human beings to navigate to a specified destination. This is odd because there is no way for a “driver” to take over if the car can’t perform its function. You see, it doesn’t have pedals or a steering wheel. Google believes this is the future of self-driving modes of transportation.
