A Tasty Glimpse of What the 2018 Buick Regal Wagon Could Be

Please, General Motors, make our dreams come true

Recently, a beautiful car was spotted in Los Angeles for a photo shoot. That beautiful car was the 2018 Opel Insignia Sports Tourer. While the name Opel may mean diddly squat to Americans, outside of the U.S. it's a General Motors brand. The Opel Insignia is the company's largest mainstream offering. It is also known as the Buick Regal. Yes, it's a Buick, and there's a chance this elegant station wagon could come to the states. So, get ready to empty your bank account.

EPA Ruling Could Put Automakers and Trump in a Crunch

Regulations on fuel-economy puts car manufacturers in a tight spot

Before President-elect Donald Trump has a chance to take office in the coming weeks, the Environmental Protection Agency is doing everything in its power to lock in President Obama's environmental and energy agenda. In a surprise decision made by the EPA last week, it plans to uphold the greenhouse-gas targets that will continue to put the automotive industry in a place where they need to steadily and some would say quickly, innovate to make cars more efficient and cleaner.

First Drive: The 2017 Genesis G90

True shock and awe for the Germans and Japanese

When we first heard about Hyundai starting their own luxury brand, it made total sense. On the flipside, we didn't quite know what that would look like. The Equus's successor and the Genesis model, itself, didn't seem to fit with the affordable and mainstream Hyundai brand. Well, that effort has been made in the form of the G90 flagship, and it's a serious one.

Why the Hell Do Hubcaps Still Exist?

The silly plastic wheel covers are still hanging on

Hubcaps used to be on everything-Cadillacs, Fords, Chevrolets, VWs, Toyotas. It didn't seem to matter what vehicle you bought, it came with steel wheels and some fancy looking hubcaps to cover them up. Why they're still around, we don't quite get. Over time, the hubcaps grew in size to hide otherwise ugly steel wheels. While hubcaps started out as metal attachments, once plastic became a more common part of automobiles, automakers made cheap, plastic hubcaps.

The Ferrari SP275 RW Competizione is a Singular Sensation

Ferrari's latest one-off is a very hot golden girl

We imagine it's easy to waste your money when you're filthy rich. Stupid things like diamond-encrusted toilet seat covers, shirts woven from real gold, and those $10,000 Apple Watches all seem like money gone bad. And then there are custom cars, not all of which qualify as good choices, but we found one that certainly is. It's called the SP275 RW Competizione, and this one-off is about as tasty as it gets. It was just unveiled at the Ferrari Finali Mondiali event in Daytona.

The Mazzanti Evantra 771 is Molto Furioso

A niche supercar notches things up in its new trim level

If you haven't heard of Italian supercar maker Mazzanti, you're not alone. Back in 2015, when their Evantra model bowed, it was pretty big news. 751 hp from a naturally-aspirated 7.0-liter V8 gave the car some serious power, and the car looked like it could divert attention away from Ferrari and Lambo. Now, Mazzanti has upped the quotient with their new Evantra 771.

Top 5 Reasons Pickup Trucks are Selling So Well

And it's not because everyone's taking up farming

Suburbanites, urban dwellers and basically anyone with enough coin and a desire to sit up high and have a lot of cargo space are buying trucks. Commercial truck sales are high, but consumer sales are high as well. Put that together and you have lots of trucks making their way from the assembly line to the road. Here are some reasons why.

The Nikola One is a Mean and Efficient Hydrogen Big Rig

A seriously good offer truckers may not be able to refuse

When news about Nikola Motor Company's Nikola One all-electric big rig hit the interwebs last spring, everyone's collective jaw dropped. But then the company abandoned the idea of building their electric hauler, instead announcing in the fall that they would use hydrogen power. It seemed the writing was on the wall. But recently, the company unveiled the new Nikola One in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The 2018 Camry Might Just End the Boredom

Toyota teases us with a beautiful... taillight

Prior to the new car's full reveal at the Detroit Auto Show next year, they've gone ahead and teased us with, of all things, a shot of the new Camry's taillight. It's hard to believe such a small tidbit would give us a good taste of what's to come, but it does.

What Electric Car Makers are Losing in Pursuit of Market Share

Taking a loss for every zero-emissions vehicle sold sounds rough

There are a few factors that go into justifying the continuation of manufacturing and selling vehicles. As with many automotive companies, the aim is ultimately to make a profit, but when consistently taking a loss doesn't call for a complete shutdown of something, we have to look at what other gains are being benefited from. It has just been announced that Chevy loses a good amount of money on every Bolt it sells, but they're not the only ones in the EV selling game taking a hit like that.

The V6 Mustang Will Gallop Into the Big Pasture in the Sky

We're going to miss the most affordable 'Stang

With the addition of the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder to the Mustang line, the V6 steed will cease to exist for the 2018 model year. At least that's the rumor. It makes sense. The turbo four-pot is a heck of an engine. Besides sounding like an angry sewing machine, it gets the job done. It's tuned to make more horsepower and torque than the 3.7-liter V6 mill, and it gets better gas mileage. So long V6. Forget you. We should all be happy it's being cut out of the Mustang, right? Wrong.

Cadillac's Dramatic Return to Endurance Racing Looks Dark Knight Ready

The kind of Cadillac wings we really want to see

Cadillac is all about American luxury, right? Well, that's not exactly true anymore. They've recently announced that they're re-entering the illustrious world of endurance racing after a long 14-year absence. Their last race car was the V8-powered Northstar LMP900 that entered the American Le Mans Series back in 2002. The new car, eons ahead in terms of technology, is known as the DPi-V.R, an odd name that's hard to remember, but thankfully the car is not.

The Best Cars For the Biggest of Holiday Gift-Giving

Some of us get neckties, others receive entire cars

Those holiday car sales commercials have us wondering, "Do people actually give cars as Christmas presents???" We guess the answer is yes, considering the fact that we've heard of such instances (though we've never seen the automotive gift giving in person). So, with the holiday car deals going on right now, allow us to suggest our recommendations for the best gift cars in each segment, so you don't have to do any research whatsoever (we're that good).

5 Best Holiday Gift Ideas for the Commuter

Perk up the daily drudge with some holiday car cheer

Commuting can be a real pain, but it's a reality most of us have to live with (excluding you independently wealthy, of course). Getting to the car, sitting there in seemingly endless logjams, dealing with lousy drivers, and terrible construction are all things that nobody really wants to deal with. While you can't make the trip any shorter, you can make it more enjoyable for yourself or for the drained commuter in your life.
