And the very first thing the investors will mandate is to cancel the Ouya port. I'm all for the tiny box, but pumping any amount of actual money into a project needs to be met with a better shot at a return on investment than the system can promise with its small install base. » 4/18/14 11:25am Friday 11:25am

When the Miata debuted at the tail end of the 1980s, its bodywork signaled a radical departure from the still very angular designs of most cars. What was your inspiration to design a car with smooth, curvaceous sheetmetal that wouldn't become commonplace in the market for almost another decade, and what sorts of… » 4/17/14 10:35am Thursday 10:35am

If new car sales are still down, and we're about to hit month- and quarter-end, does that make this weekend a better time than most to get a deal? My car's falling apart, I want my damn manual diesel wagon, and there's a VW dealer nearby with some matching Jetta Sportwagens in stock. » 3/25/14 9:40am 3/25/14 9:40am

There's a saying I've grown to love this year that goes, "Bad PR is better than no PR." The Model S has done a fantastic job of riling up the entire automotive industry, consumer populace, and state and federal legislature since its first sale to the public. » 3/19/14 12:03pm 3/19/14 12:03pm
