Honda's future may not be all CVTs and dual-clutch gearboxes. Execs previously hinted at an 8- or 9-speed automatic, and now we hear it's fairly certain the company will roll out the same ZF 9-speed auto that Chrysler will use in several model lines.

This bad boy is under my watch for the next twelve months. Any suggestions on where we should take it or what we should do with it? (Besides mount a gumball on the roof and impersonate a police officer.)

2012 looks like it might be a pretty good year for the auto enthusiast, but the disappearance of the Mazda RX-8 and Lotus Elise is a major loss.

Isn't there talk 'bout bringin' some sorta RX back? (And no, not the RX-7. That's vaporware.)

Evel Knievel's favorite summer camp! Turning poop into water! An EV (without a Tesla badge) that's fun to drive!
