What Car Should You Buy The experts at Jalopnik answer your car-buying questions. Pete spends most of the year on a boat, but when he is home he likes to drive fast and throw down some lap times. He is ready to swap his Corvette for something that can handle track days but doesn’t want the usual suspects. What car should he buy? (Welcome back to What Car Should You Buy?

Here is the scenario: I currently have a 335i that I use as my daily driver (when I’m home) and own two sports cars to have fun with at the track (and occasionally to wow a coworker). The unfortunate thing is I’m only in the U.S. for about 1.5 months at a time, maybe twice a year. What I am looking for is a new track car to replace my Corvette, which I plan on selling. I don’t mind having another dual-clutch car or a manual (the Corvette). I was originally … [Read more...] about I’ve Got Serious Money to Spend on a Track Car but I Don’t Want the Typical Choices!

What upgrades should i get for my new home
Time to take a look back at the best moments from the Spanish Grand Prix weekend…unfortunately most of them happened off the track. But first… Welcome to Miami The build-up to race weekend began with the Miami Grand Prix taking one step closer to reality after the city’s commissioners unanimously voted in favour. We were slightly looking forward to it, until we saw the potential track design that is. Why don’t we take Baku and make the straights even longer? Great idea. Lewis Hamilton also performed a very quick U-turn on the Grand Prix as well… One minute… The next… A Lewis Hamilton designed track? We’re sure it wouldn’t favour Mercedes in any way whatsoever. Nose job As is tradition, the Spanish Grand Prix means upgrades, upgrades, upgrades. Ferrari’s new wing which just happened to have mirrors on it has been outlawed after one race and a lot of fuss was made over McLaren’s new nose. Probably too much fuss! And we … [Read more...] about Pit Chat: Home truths from Hamilton and Vettel
Here's the most incredible thing about today: my prized Beetle has had its eyes gouged out, its hood and decklid battered, it bumpers mangled, roof rack stolen, radio gone, and the entire engine brutally extracted, and all I can think about is how amazingly wonderful people are. Not all people, mind you. There's at least a few I'm not at all pleased with right now, but they're woefully outnumbered by genuinely good people. Specifically, all of you who helped get the word out, all of you who Tweeted, Facebooked, Reddited, Kinja'd, semaphored, and everything else to get the word out about my stolen mechanical companion. Even more specifically I'd like to mention two Jalopnik readers, Jake and SFmikee. Before we get into the serious CSI shit that went down here a few hours back, let me recap: my VW Beetle that I've owned over 20 years was stolen, and I've been very publicly crying about it and unashamedly begging for help. After several days of no information at all, today commenter Jake … [Read more...] about How The Internet Found My Stolen Beetle
While not quite a match for last month’s Geneva extravaganza, there were a significant number of new products to see at the New York show, and a few intriguing concepts on the side. New generations of mass-market vehicles such as the bolder 2019 Toyota RAV4 and revamped Subaru Forester premiered. As did hotted-up variants such as the Maserati Levante Trofeo, theAudi RS5 Sportback and the Jaguar F-Pace SVR. More US-focused offerings that made world debuts included the all-new Nissan Altima sedan, Honda Insight hybrid car, and some American luxury including the Cadillac XT4 crossover, Lincoln Aviator PHEV luxury SUV, and Acura RDX. We also saw upgraded versions of well-known cars such as the Hyundai Tucson with its revamped cabin, and the made-over Mercedes-AMG C63 muscle car, which one of our founders in particular liked. A lot. That’s not to mention concept metal such as the … [Read more...] about 2018 New York motor show: Hits and misses
