Infiniti Q60 Red Sport looks, acts the part of sporty car

Infiniti has always been one of my favorite luxury brands, despite the disastrous ad campaign that launched the brand. Remember the salmon swinging upstream? Never did see that Q45 did we. Ok, that was nearly 30 years ago and the brand certainly has proven itself worthy against well established luxury marks. Infiniti has added some

Audi TT RS coupe makes triumphant return

It’s been about a decade but I still remember my introduction to Audi’s TT.  It was an event in Austin, Texas, where we got to throw the TT around some surprising curves (considering Texas is fairly flat) and long strait aways that proved Audi had a winner. There are various versions of the TT now

QX50 crossover keeps Infiniti in the game, begs for update

Infiniti has tried hard to get its mojo back. Introduced the same year as Lexus, the company bolted on the scene with the Q45, a stunning piece that gave Jaguar a serious challenge. It hasn’t had a big sedan that adventurous since, probably because it’s more concerned with trucks and crossovers. That’s not a big

CTS-V Kicks Caddy In Gear

Cadillac is an amazing company. It has transformed itself from a stodgy, luxury-leaning brand into something fresh and wonderful. This 2016 Cadillac CTS-V sedan is something special – and I mean really special. It looks good, it drives well and it has very few things that wrong. Let me start with the good stuff. Look

Audi’s e-tron hot hatch hybrid

Despite cheeper gas prices car companies are still trying to build models that will squeeze every drop possible out a gallon of fuel. We all no gas will not be cheep forever so that is a good thing. Audi enters the fray with the e-tron, a plug in hybrid that uses the A3 hatchback as

Land Rover LR4 handles any terrain

I am fond of Land Rovers. The British really know how to build a luxury SUV. But why would I buy a $100,000 vehicle to take it bashing through the woods? A dent in something this good looking would be a pity. Yeah, I know, you can say the same about almost any other SUV

Murano gets bolder styling, better ride and handling

Nissan continues to make its SUV and crossover lineup interesting. It isn’t afraid to push the styling envelope which is seen on the restyled 2015 Murano. A little bigger, bolder and more fuel efficient than the model it replaces, this new Murano may be all the SUV you need. I say SUV but I think

2016 Chevy Camaro SS is job well done

Chevy and Ford would like you to think there is a war going on between the Camaro and Mustang. I say there isn’t. I say that because people who like Mustangs like Mustangs. The same with Camaro fans. Yes, one may outsell the other for a while but then the other takes over and, well,
