The 2015 Honda Civic Made Me Miss My 2000 Honda Civic

3 days agoVehicles / Cars : Jalopnik

Honda’s made quite a few of my favorite cars. So I was stoked to see how far they’d come since the last Civic I’d driven; a ‘99 Si that of course ended up in a river at the hands of high school car enthusiasts. The 2015 Honda Civic SE is more advanced, but I don’t know about “better.” Read more...

3 days agoVehicles / Cars : Jalopnik

As I calmly waited for the car to arrive, I felt none of the usual anticipation for the experience that lay before me. The burbly metallic blue coupe eventually rolled up, giving me the chance to convince the car’s caretaker to hand over the keys.

3 days agoVehicles / Cars : Jalopnik

After yesterday’s Catalina catastrophe, I began to wonder what the biggest floatplane ever built was. Not a flying boat, where the aircraft’s fuselage also serves as a monohull with pontoons providing sea-keeping stability, but literally a plane attached to floats.

Yes, they’re awfully close to BMW’s Yas Marina Blue, but I have to admit Subaru’s limited-edition Series Hyper.Blue BRZ and WRX STI look sexy as hell. Only 700 STIs and 500 BRZs will have the color when they go on sale this fall. Get ‘em while they last. Read more...
