Gooding & Co. Is Selling This Impossibly Orange $1M Porsche 968

All Photos: Gooding & Co. This week famed auction Gooding & Co. is launching an online listing to coincide with the incredible Amelia Island Concours. While Gooding traditionally has a physical presence at the concours weekend, it decided that it would be best to avoid indoor in-person shouting while the coronavirus pandemic still rages around the world. Aside from the fact that many of the company's traditional customers wouldn't be able to travel to the U.S. for the auction, I'm sure they wan...

Stellantis to Test Citroën Ami on U.S. Customers?

2022 Mazda MX-30 EV: Too Little Too Late or Just Right? We Examine The Goods

The Mazda MX-30 made its initial debut at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. It’s a nice-looking crossover, and it has the genes of Mazda’s RX-8 rotary-powered sports car from the early 2000s. Have you seen those center-opening double rear doors, or what Mazda refers to as “freestyle doors?” Well, they are back with a vengeance for the MX-30. Practicality issues aside, every new EV needs a party piece to grab attention. If the Tesla Model X can have falcon doors, the Mazda MX-30 can have suicide doo...

A Dozen More States Virtue Signaling Over Vehicle Bans

Having noticed that Washington got a bit of publicity for vowing to ban all vehicles reliant on internal combustion after 2030, a dozen other American states decided it would be a good idea to reaffirm their own religious-like commitment to the environment by saying they too will be restricting your choice of automobiles by 2035.

Tamika Butler, Remix’s Tiffany Chu and Revel’s Frank Reig to discuss how to balance equitability and profitability at TC Sessions Mobility

The race among mobility startups to become profitable by controlling market share has produced a string of bad results for cities and the people living in the them. City officials and agencies learned from those early deployments of ride-hailing and shared scooter services and have since pushed back with new rules and tighter control over which companies can operate. This correction has prompted established companies to change how they do business and fueled a new crop of startups, all promising...

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....

An April Fool: VW Not Rebranding Itself as “Voltswagen” for the United States Market Afterall

Although it seemed as if VW were serious, the automaker later confirmed it was merely a marketing stunt to create buzz around the the new ID.4.
