Certain facts are objectively true, and beyond dispute. Like how Nardo Grey is the best color for an Audi.

Tesla’s not the only automaker to take a bath in Q1, Carlos Ghosn is out of jail (again), rear-seat crash testing needs to be better and much more for The Morning Shift of Thursday, April 25, 2019.

The Best and Worst Cars of the New York Auto Show

Electric hatchbacks! Electric trucks! Horrible trucks! More conventional, expensive trucks! The 2019 New York Auto Show is in the books, and it was... fine. Mostly fine. Some good stuff here, some questionable stuff there, but nothing too earth-shattering as the car companies double-down on trucks and SUVs to pay for…

Some big *personal* news for me: I have just discovered the Avantgarde special editions of the Mercedes 190E, and their incredibly ’90s interiors. And I am in love.

What Do You Want to Know About the 2020 BMW M2 Competition? What Do You Want to Know About the 2020 BMW M2 Competition?

Yes, we’re all familiar with how BMW plasters the M badge on damn near everything it makes these days. And we don’t have to be happy about it. But there are still plenty of cars that keep the M flame burning bright, and still have the raw speed to back up the badge. Chief among them, perhaps, is the BMW M2 Competition…

The 2020 Mini John Cooper Works GP Will Keep Some of the Wild Concept Looks The 2020 Mini John Cooper Works GP Will Keep Some of the Wild Concept Looks

Generally speaking, BMW tends to be better than most automakers at translating its concept cars into production cars. That the BMW i8 exists at all is proof of this. So after a few years of missing out on cool Mini concepts—looking at you, Superleggera Vision and Rocketman—it’s good to see the upcoming 2020 Mini John…

Thanks For Making New York's First Sketchbattle At Jalopnik HQ A Huge Success Thanks For Making New York's First Sketchbattle At Jalopnik HQ A Huge Success

Huge news for the people of New York City: you have a new Sketchmaster, and his name is Kevin Richards. OK, to be fair it’s the first time we’ve had one of those, but his title was hard-won at the first ever New York Sketchbattle Championship hosted at Jalopnik HQ earlier this week. It was a huge success, and we have…

The Compact Truck Wars Are Coming The Compact Truck Wars Are Coming

The next phase of the Truck Wars is smaller trucks, General Motors will soon rank among a growing number of large corporations with female-majority boards, Nissan may cut its global output and so much more for The Morning Shift of Good Friday, April 19, 2019.

It’s Friday! Get out there and chase some sunshine, like this Toyota Celica here. It’s in the name and everything.

Porsche’s celebrating its history in America this week with the new Speedster, and that all began in New York City. In that spirit, here’s a photo from the archives.

Public Enemy -- 'Don't Believe The Hype' Public Enemy -- 'Don't Believe The Hype'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

If you are truly considering spending $275,000 on the 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster, might I humbly suggest you also opt for the Heritage Design Package with silver paint and the optional number graphics of your choosing? Future generations of Bring a Trailer users will thank you.

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS Is the Alabama-Built S-Class of SUVs The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS Is the Alabama-Built S-Class of SUVs

These days Mercedes-Benz’s naming conventions for crossovers and SUVs follows that of the sedans, which everyone understands pretty well. There’s the GLA, the GLC and the GLE, in that order. That follows that there should be an S-Class of SUVs as well, and this is it: the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS.

Nissan Let The Fans Down Nissan Let The Fans Down

Nissan is using this New York Auto Show to celebrate its performance heritage and highlight 50th anniversaries for two of its most important cars: the Z and the GT-R. With nearly any other automaker, this would be a nice gesture to the enthusiast faithful who still care about sporty cars in a world of semi-autonomous…

A lot of folks were mad about that BRE-inspired Nissan 370Z yesterday, and I’ll have more to say about it today. But I have a feeling all will be forgiven if Nissan goes Full Black Gold again.

The Genesis Mint Concept Is Something Very Different for the City The Genesis Mint Concept Is Something Very Different for the City

OK, so it’s not a sports car like we half-expected. But the Genesis Mint Concept, the new luxury brand’s latest concept car debut at the New York Auto Show, is definitely something different.

Reminder: Jalopnik's New York Sketchbattle Party Is TONIGHT! And You Should Come Reminder: Jalopnik's New York Sketchbattle Party Is TONIGHT! And You Should Come

We’re all familiar with New York City’s biggest problem: There’s nothing to do here. Restaurants, theater, museums, historic landmarks, parks... the city’s just not really known for those things. The New York Auto Show is trying to help this week, but we’re here to fix that problem with a giant-ass party. You should…
