Lincoln is Bringing Back Suicide Doors for the Continental

When enthusiasts think about Lincoln, the Continental of the 1960s is the first thing that comes to mind. It was a stately, giant, sedan with luxury appointments which rivaled anything Rolls-Royce had to offer, and remains an icon. Unfortunately, one of the model’s defining features were the rear-hinged “suicide doors,” and modern incarnations of the Continental have spurned them in favor of traditional doors. But that hasn’t stopped industry watchers from pining for their return, and a new Instagram post from Lincoln shows the company was listening. It’s a  picture…

Check Out a Leaked Picture of the 2020 Toyota Supra

Toyota has been pretty coy about releasing pics of its latest Supra, and even went to the extraordinary step of staging a “world debut” while the car was still wearing its testing camouflage. It’s a move that left a lot of folks in the industry scratching their heads, and while we weren’t slated to get a full look at the next-generation sports car until the Detroit Auto Show next month, thanks to the folks at the Supra MKV forum, we already have it. Because we want to give credit where…

One Big VW: 2018 Volkswagen Atlas R-Line Test Drive

As nice as the new Jetta and Tiguan are, the most important addition to Volkswagen’s lineup has been the American-made Atlas, which gives VW an ever-important three-row crossover. We’ve already been quite impressed by the SE and SEL Premium trim levels of this crossover, but both of those were equipped with 4Motion all-wheel drive.
