There are certain flagship luxury cars that suggest the driver has “made it” – assuming “making it” means climbing the corporate ladder to the point that owning and driving a large, imported luxury sedan with a six-figure price tag is no sweat, financially speaking.

The new Toyota Supra now comes with 2 different engine choices, and I drove them both. See why they're very different sports cars.

Last year, Toyota brought back the legendary Supra. For the 2021 model year, it updated the launch edition of the two-door, which shares a lot of DNA with the BMW Z4. I tested the new GR Supra 3.0 and Supra 2.0. The Supra 3.0 has a 3.0-liter 382-horsepower inline six-cylinder engine; the 2.0 has a 2.0-liter inline four, making 255 horsepower. Both versions of the new Supra are compelling, with the 3.0 offering more straight-ahead velocity and the 2.0 providing a lighter, dartier vibe. Visit Bu...

BMW’s feature subscription service is anti-consumer rubbish

Yesterday, Bavarian automaker BMW announced that it’s going to start offering some vehicle features as paid for options as part of its in-car “connected” services. In the future, BMW drivers could be able to add features to their vehicle as and when they please, by purchasing options — like cruise control and heated seats — from BMW through the vehicle‘s ConnectedDrive store or the “My BMW App.” It’s not gone down well If you needed convincing that this is probably a terrible idea, read this pie...

That might not sound safe, but it actually works really well in the cars I’ve tested it on, and I could see ...

WWDC20 Rumor Report Card: Leaked iOS 14 Features, Arm-Based Macs, and More
