We spent the last week driving the last Dodge Viper for at least 2 years, and I can answer your basic questions fairly quickly. Is it expensive? Yes. Is it fast? Oh, yes. Is it practical? No. Does that matter? Of course not.
The BMW X3 is something that I firmly believe goes against nature. It is a BMW truck. You will forgive this inevitable lapse into old fogeydom, but BMW has been since the 1920’s, a purveyor of sporting sedans and sports cars.
If you were the head of the German military in the 1970’s and you looked at your allies, they all had their own vehicles. America had the classic Jeep, the British the LandRover, the Japanese the Land Cruiser.
Over the years, when you thought of Chevrolet economy cars you thought of names like Chevette, Cavalier and Cobalt. Well, the only thing this new Chevy Cruze has in common is that it starts with a “C.”
Every time I get behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi, I forget how much I just enjoy driving them. The problem has always been that they were, uh, not pretty. With the new Lancer Sportback, that is obviously no longer a problem.
This is the Infiniti G37 S, and let me just state for the record, I love sports cars. In fact, I think a fast, good handling sleek coupe is the best possible expression of what a car should be. Think about it.
