Maserati Quattroporte: Full History, Generations & Timeline

The original Maserati Quattroporte first debuted at the 1963 Turin Motor Show. It instantly became a status symbol of wealth and prominence with its magnificent V8 engine and luxurious interior. Back then, the Tipo 107 Quattroporte was among an elite group of posh sedans that could travel at speeds up to 143 mph, equaled only by the Lagonda Rapide and the magnificent Facel Vega. However, the Quattroporte was the first from an established exotic car manufacturer. And with that, the Quattroport...

Just when you thought the Detroit Auto Show was over, Chevy drops a rather nice surprise on us. Say hello to the 2019 Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE, “the fastest, most track-capable Camaro ever.” You pretty much had me at “fastest,” but then you had to add “most track-capable Camaro ever.” Track capable you say?

2020 Cadillac XT6: Enter The Goldilocks Zone

The 2020 Cadillac XT6 is a three-row crossover with a laundry list of safety features. Cadillac says “thoughtful technology integration” is central to the 2020 XT6.

2019 Detroit Auto Show in the Rearview – A True Winter of Discontent

One of the repeating refrains I heard in Detroit this year went something like, “It’s the last winter show, and yet it’s not even that cold!” Cold, of course, can be relative – Southern Californians tend to define it differently than Midwesterners.
