2016 Lexus GS-F Review

The GSF is interesting, because it’s radical. But it’s also executive & gentlemanly. A wolf in sheep’s clothing. The car-guy in me wanted to jump out there & smugly hate it before I drove it. Why? Because I’m not a gentleman, and I was adamant that you can’t have 100% luxury AND 100% performance in the same car. Even though I love AC in the seats. Haha but my experience has always been, if you want raw/lustful performance, you’ve gotta sacrifice elsewhere. You’ve gotta be a little uncomfortable… a little rattled. In short – you’ve gotta earn it. That’s...

Kelly Moss Porsche 914

2016 Mazda6 review

  The 2016 Mazda6 is a bit of a refreshing, sporty alternative in the ‘sensible sedan’ category. The 6’s swoopy, athletic, lean/trim lines (inside & out) are a step outside of the hollow box of expectation. It’s clear that Mazda designs are rooted in motion & performance… rather than trendy/gaudy design gimmicks.   I’ve said it before & I say it again… when it comes to building a solid chassis, Mazda gets it. No doubt. It really doesn’t matter which model we’re talking about in the Mazda lineup – they all stand out in agility & responsiveness.   But...
