The Case for Enough

I went out for my first motorcycle ride of the season today. Nothing too crazy or long, just a short trip to shake the dust off and enjoy the first glimpse of warmer spring weather. Not too warm, mind you. I know some places are fully into beach season by ...

Ford Mustang Mach-E review

Ford Mustang Mach-E: Forget the name, enjoy the machine

Ford didn't need to call it the Mustang Mach-E... but they did, so let's deal with that. What we have is a good electric vehicle with Mustang-esque design elements. And if you automatically discount it simply because it has pony badges, you're doing yourself a disservice. The Mach-E is really ...

1500-mile Audi RS6 Avant sells for MSRP, proving dealer markups are BS

The 2021 Audi RS6 Avant is the ultimate do-it-all car. It's blisteringly fast. It's full of gadgets and cowhide and shiny metals. And it carries a bunch of stuff and people. Naturally, it costs about as much as a sports car, luxury car, and people carrier combined as well: about $130,000 ...

Hooniverse Asks: Is Genesis here to stay now?

Genesis has taken a few cracks at this now. The first was as a quasi-sub-model sitting atop the Hyundai lineup. Next, it was a half-hearted attempt to make Genesis its own brand. Now, the lineup has been revamped. The styling is unique. Those cabin spaces are excellent. And the driving ...

Who’s to blame for Infiniti today?

In the mid to late part of the 2000s, Infiniti was building interesting and entertaining vehicles.
