Car Driving Tip of the Month
(January 2019)
COMBINE TRIPS

Planning your errands and activities in advance will increase your car’s fuel efficiency and save you some cash. Fuse your errands into one trip, and try to combine it with an activity. Stop at the grocery store on the way home from work. Pick-up the dry cleaning before you head to yoga class.

Taking short trips back and forth not only puts extra stress on your car, with the current high gas prices, it also puts stress on your wallet. Extra trips can use up to twice as much fuel than a longer integrated trip covering the same distance. Not only that, but planning your trip ahead of time allows you to pick shorter rotes and ones that avoid gridlock, and wasteful idle time.

RM Sotheby’s Scottsdale auction was a mixed bag this year, with many highly anticipated lots stopping short of meeting reserve while the rare few prospered. RM’s starring Ferrari, a 1957 250 GT Coupe Speciale with attractive one-off Pininfarina coachwork was a dud, with bidding quickly halting at $7.5 million and the Ferrari being unceremoniously pushed...

Unshakeable: All-New 2020 Porsche 911 Driven! (Sat, 19 Jan 2019 16:41:42 +0000)

VALENCIA, Spain—Déjà vu typically strikes individuals, not large groups of similarly afflicted personalities. But at this point in the evolution of Porsche’s 911, you don’t need to have owned an example of the ageless rear-engine sports car to feel strongly that you’ve been here before. That’s no criticism of the 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S,...

The Government Shutdown Might Delay These New Vehicles (Sat, 19 Jan 2019 01:03:04 +0000)

As President Trump and Congress feud over the government shutdown, regulatory agencies that test and approve vehicles for sale in the U.S. remain closed. That could impact the launch dates for several much-anticipated vehicles slated for launch in the next several months. This buzzkill is in contrast to the acres of shiny new vehicles unveiled...

Nissan Put Snow Tracks on Another Thing (Fri, 18 Jan 2019 21:03:55 +0000)

While Nissan’s affinity for the practice grows a bit tiring, it’s pretty much true that you can put tracks on anything and make it cooler. Case in point: the Nissan Altima-te AWD project vehicle that just made its debut at the Montreal auto show. The one-off is based on a 2019 Altima and ditches its...
