2019 Kia Stinger & Limited-Edition Stinger GTS: Product & Performance Review

We saw the Kia Stinger for the first time at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Nothing has changed since then. The 2019 Kia Stinger remains one of the best high-performance GT sedans for the money. When we first laid eyes on the Kia Stinger, it was transcribing a clear message to European sports sedans: the South Koreans have entered the fray and are set to disrupt the performance sedan market in a big way. NAIAS 2017 had a multitude of attractions, but for us, the Stin...

Welcome To The Club: Younger Generations Embrace Classic Cars

Recent data shows Gen Xers and millennials are taking more of an interest in classic cars. Muscle cars are the most desirable, with the Camaro, Corvette, and Mustang topping the list. Despite the onset of autonomous vehicles, younger generations still appreciate going for a drive.   “There’s an adage in Detroit,” writes author Tom Glatch in The Art of Mopar. “You can sell an old man a young man’s car but you can never sell a young man an old man’s car.” Glatch describes how Dodge was an old ma...

On the New Car Games and What’s Wrong with Them

I don’t quite remember its name, but there is a law about the exponential growth of computing power every 18 months or so. I think it’s Moore’s law. But anyway, one of the benefits of this rapid advancement is an amazing enhancement in the quality and complexity of video games. Sadly though, car games seem to have fallen behind.  Don’t get me wrong. I’m not talking here about graphics or gameplay or the precision with which the driving physics are simulated. My main concern in content. Where...

CANNED TURISMO. Lucky Cat’s ‘Houndstooth’ BSA Spitfire Dustbin Tourer

Written by Andrew Jones Standing out from the crowd; it goes with motorcycling like white on rice. And while we’ve never been in a witness protection program, we’re pretty sure that the police’s brief to the person they are looking after goes nothing like, “Make sure you buy yourself a classic motorcycle, customise it to make it really stand out and then tear around your neighbourhood attracting as much attention as you can.” We don’t know much about the owner of this latest bike from France’...

Ford Focus RS vs. Honda Civic Type R vs. Volkswagen Golf R vs. Subaru WRX STI Type RA

Every generation has one. Volkswagen Golf GTI. Acura Integra GS-R. Mitsubishi Evo. If you smuggled automotive magazines in from Europe, perhaps it was the Renault 5 Turbo or Ford Escort Cosworth. No matter who you are or where you grew up, odds are you remember your first hot hatch—a plebeian-skinned powerhouse designed around the democratization of performance and practicality. Some looked like ATMs on wheels; others had sloping lines approximating a coupe. But they all held the same secret: st...
