Rare Rides: The Sporty and Very Rare 1991 Mitsubishi Debonair, by AMG (Part I)

Today’s Rare Ride is the second attempt Mitsubishi made to build its own full-size executive car for the Japanese Domestic Market. Debonair never moved outside its home market, and always played third fiddle to competition from the likes of Toyota Crown and Nissan Gloria (then a Prince model).

Uber entices drivers back post-pandemic with $250 million stimulus

Despite the classification of ride-hail drivers as “essential workers” during the early days of the pandemic, last April  Uber’s business dropped by 80%. Drivers decided they’d rather not risk contracting or spreading COVID-19 for the measly revenue provided by the few rides per day they were getting, so when the federal CARES Act extended the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance to gig workers, many Uber drivers decided to hang up their keys.  With more than a quarter of the U.S. population a...

2022 Toyota GR 86: New Name, More Powerful Engine, Same Fun-To-Drive Attitude!

From now on, the Toyota 86 sports car will be called the GR 86. And as such, the 2022 Toyota GR 86 is the third vehicle to earn the Gazoo Racing (GR) badge after the GR Supra and GR Yaris hot hatchback, the latter of which we won’t be getting in America. While we still can’t get over why Toyota insists on not bringing the GR Yaris to U.S. shores, we were left scratching our heads when Toyota insisted on delaying the 2022 GR 86’s debut a full five months after Subaru unveiled the next-gen BRZ....

Faced with a client that was keen on having his Paul Smart customized, Tony had to figure out how to improve on perfection, while still respecting the rarity and bea...

Horse & Rider: Inside The Lexus LF-Z Electrified Concept

Lexus is among a few luxury automakers who are yet to release or unveil an all-electric vehicle (a list that includes Bentley and Aston Martin, to name a few). However, that’s about to change with the Lexus LF-Z Electrified Concept. Parent company Toyota and Lexus are somewhat late to the EV party, and we find this perplexing at the very least.

Polestar “will have to question everything” in order to build the first climate-neutral EV

Polestar, the Swedish electric vehicle brand spun out of Volvo Car Group, set on Wednesday a “moonshot goal” of creating the first climate neutral car by 2030. But instead of getting there through more widely-practiced offsetting measures, such as planting trees, the company said it’s going to fundamentally change the way the new EV is made. That means rethinking every piece of the supply chain, from materials sourcing through to manufacturing, and even by making the vehicle more energy efficien...
