Some cars I test drive are wheels that I do not wish to give back to the manufacturer.

The latest?

The 2017 Golf GTI Autobahn is the latest of those cars.

I have no idea where to begin to explain why this car captivates me so much.  Maybe its the really ultra-cool styling.  VW has managed to make the Golf a …

But this special iteration of the Q50–not a car noted for being cold-blooded OR slow—adds a lot of spice to a product already blessed with a reputation for being an enthusiast’s ride.

Frankly, we think Infiniti to stand to cut a few words out of the long name–every time …

2016 Lexus IS300 AWD sedan: The stealth bomber with the velvet touch

By Don Hammonds

Lexus’ IS300 AWD is just the ticket for those who want to avoid the obvious, and go for the road less traveled.

If you are wondering what people I’m talking about, consider yours truly.

2015 Ford Mustang Premium Coupe: Better, Badder and Bolder

By Don Hammonds

Breathes there a soul on the planet who does not love a Mustang? I love them.

And judging from the reaction I got with the 2015 Mustang coupe I drove for a week, a  lot of other people love ‘Stangs too.

This is one fabulous Mustang, and for me at least, it’s got just about everything I would want if I was buying a sport car.  It’s brutishly fast, even in four cylinder form, its more beautiful than ever, …

2014 BMW 3 Series xDrive Gran Turismo: A star is born

 

By Don Hammonds

There are so many things to say about the 2014 BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo.

 

That’s because more than some of the BMWs we’ve tested, this one is an enigma to us that we find at once fascinating, and yet so hard to pin down.  That’s not because of anything negative, but  because it has so many wonderful qualities it’s hard to figure out how to categorize it.

     You could call it an incredible performance sedan because of its …
