The lumpy Ferrari 612 Scaglietti never commanded much of my attention before—until a couple of Dutchmen recently turned one into a shooting brake. It’s the modern-day Ferrari Breadvan, and one that you can actually own. Now it has my attention.

There have been and are more versions of the Lamborghini Huracán than I can keep track of, but I do know that the 2020 Lamborghini Huracán Evo will replace the LP610-4. I’m going to drive it this week, so what do you want to know about it?

Lucifer's Cars Are Fine but We Fixed Them Lucifer's Cars Are Fine but We Fixed Them

Lucifer, a wonderful show about a crime-solving devil who’s bored with Hell and living in Los Angeles instead, came back for a fourth season this year after Netflix swooped in and saved it from TV cancelation. As anything that includes the slight mention of a car, Lucifer has caused my colleague Kristen Lee and I to…

Just in case your near-500-horsepower BMW crossovers don’t drive the point home enough, BMW is now selling some appearance bits to make your X3 M and X4 M look even sportier. It’s all a bit much.

When you consider everything that Cadillac has gone through in the last 14 months—an ousted CEO in part over the company’s failure to build SUVs quickly enough, leaving Manhattan for beautiful Warren, Michigan, cancelling its subscription service, trotting out a nameless rendering of an electric crossover when the…

The 2020 Lexus RX Finally Gets Android Auto and Not a Whole Lot Else The 2020 Lexus RX Finally Gets Android Auto and Not a Whole Lot Else

Updates to the 2020 Lexus RX and RXL aren’t huge, but they matter to the people actually buying the cars. There’s more tech now, it should drive slightly better and it looks marginally different. The RX is already incredibly popular, so why fix something that isn’t broken, right?

Dead for Now: Jaguar XJ Dead for Now: Jaguar XJ

Before you read this headline, when was the last time you honestly thought about the Jaguar XJ? I think for me it had been a solid year or two since the big sedan crossed my mind—and now we’ve just learned that it’s about to be discontinued. Sort of.

The BMW iNext Is Also Jumping on the Giant Screen Bandwagon The BMW iNext Is Also Jumping on the Giant Screen Bandwagon

Oh God I Think I Actually Love BMW's Crystal Shifter Oh God I Think I Actually Love BMW's Crystal Shifter

I like to think that my style is pretty understated. I keep my jewelry to a minimum and, despite being from New Jersey, I don’t own anything that’s bedazzled. Overly sparkly crap doesn’t do it for me—that is until I got behind the wheel of the 2019 BMW X7.
