When you finally decide on a new car to purchase, it is a wonderful day. The feeling of going to the dealership with a clear sense of what you want, what you’re willing to pay, and what you’re willing to walk away from if necessary is very empowering and in a way, helps you become a bit better of a functioning adult. You finally get your new keys in your hand and drive off the lot, and you don’t have a care in the world except for how far out in the work parking lot you’re going to have to leave your car in order to preserve the brand new clear-coat.

There is always a lot of media attention given to big Powerball lottery prizes that accumulate to eye-popping amounts. Even though we all know that it is almost impossible to take home the prize, somebody does win eventually, and it is a life-changing event. There aren't too many things that are going to happen that will change your life, so a lot of people take a chance. You can certainly buy the car or cars of your dreams if you were to capture a large lottery prize, but that's not the only way that you can get behind the wheel of an expensive car without reaching into your pocket.
If you were one of the people who thought Japanese sports cars were criminally undervalued, you should feel good in the knowledge that you were right. But unless you also PURCHASED one of those absolute steals at their rock-bottom prices, that feeling ain’t gonna last long because—as shown at Auctions America’s Auburn, IN, sale Aug. 31–Sept. 4—it would seem that your chance to get in on any of the 20 or 30 lower floors of this exploding market has passed you by.
Then, again, seeing as how the 2017 NSX hasn’t made its full impact on the value of its predecessors yet (up or down)—and that there’s supposed to be another Supra on the way in 2019 that could do the same—there might yet be some money on the table for you if you act fast…

Hyundai's Genesis sub-brand made it clear that it wants to shake up the established players in the luxury car sales race, and the G90 sedan appears to be the sedan that could very well help them achieve this goal. A notable question was how much the G90 would cost here in the U.S., and whether it would, indeed, undercut its European rivals. Genesis has now released this information, which shows that the G90 will be more of a threat to the established sales order than first thought.

There aren’t too many people who can argue that technology isn’t a good thing. The world has become smaller, the ease of connecting to people and information takes seconds where it used to take years, and people are living longer lives thanks to advances in so many areas. This progress has also helped our automobiles become better transportation devices. No longer do we have to stand outside and hand-crank our Model T and hope the snapback doesn’t break our shoulder. We also don’t have to suffer though painfully slow or rickety rides on wooden wheels. The advent of the transmission helped alleviate some of those problems, and gave cars significantly longer ranges, and with more gears, shifting became easier and fuel economy got better.
Let’s face it: If you are one of the few people on earth who are lucky enough to be in the market for a new Rolls-Royce, you must have done something right at some point. Whether that’s making the right decision on which way to take your company, or make the decision to simply start a company in the first place and then make it successful. Or it could be just making the right call when it came to the stock market, knowing when to buy and when to sell… Or maybe it was the same case in real estate. Maybe, you were just lucky enough to be born into a family that already has its fortune, and all you need to do is not piss your parents off to the point of jeopardizing your trust fund. Any of these are potential possibilities, and of course there are dozens more. But for most people, even successful ones, getting to the point where you can afford a car that costs more than the median price of a home in a nice neighborhood takes time and effort in one way or another. But when you finally make it to that magical threshold where you can cut a check for that kind of money, what you get had better be well worth it.

Volkswagen has been hard at work on a replacement for the venerable but aging current generation Passat full-size sedan. It is currently unknown what the next generation Passat will bring to the table, but if a new report from VW Vortex is to be believed, there could be several big changes coming to the Passat, which should please a whole new generation of buyers.

There was some hubbub in the press a few months ago about Cadillac moving to New York, to be re-imagined away from Detroit, the town Antoine de Cadillac himself founded back in 1701. Has this move altered the products? Rather than the 640hp CTS-V (a civilized, less well-known Hellcat, surely?). AutoShopper spent time with the CT6 to find out.
AMG has been on a product blitz as of late with the in-house tuner unveiling a whole host of AMG-badged models to help expand its profile among customers. The latest model to benefit from the infusion of AMG-branded performance is also arguably its most design-focused model yet, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC43 Coupe.

If you sit back and think about just how many different model cars have come across the assembly lines, its amazing that we remember any of them at all. Sure, you personally might remember your first car, but by-and-large, not too many of us are really emotionally vested in a 1987 Buick Skylark the way you might be. But then there are cars that come along every once in a great while that we as a collective civilized world can appreciate. Cars that are so striking, and so stunning that men and women that have no automotive knowledge whatsoever become awestruck and mesmerized by the mere sight of one of these mighty machines. That list of cars is very short, but it can be argued that at the top of that very short list lies one car, and one car only -- the Ferrari F40.
Waze has already proven to be a formidable piece of software that has some neat and clever features to help keep it fresh. However, a new report suggests that parent company Google is expanding Waze to allow the program to assist the tech giant in launching an all-new carpooling service.
