If cars can get triple-digit fuel economy from a single gallon of fossil fuels, do we really need an alternative? That is quite the question, isn’t it?

Better gas mileage, lots of torque, and cleaner emissions all make diesel engines appealing to European automakers, and not just for commuter econoboxes either. Reports are surfacing that Mercede’s in-house tuning arm, AMG, […]
Though I consider myself an American car kinda guy at heart, one of the most fun cars I ever owned was a 1992 Nissan 240sx. Light, rear-wheel drive, and with enough torque to spin both back tires, the 240sx is a much different vehicle from the big, bruising 350/370Z.
