MORE NISSAN CUBE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
If you want to find out everything you need to know about the 2009 Nissan Cube S, just pull into In-N-Out Burger.
We're living in a drive-thru world, and the Cube is scaled to suit; a little self-contained habitat where life comes to you in a warm paper bag pushed through the driver side window. There in the line at In-N-Out, you've got a panoramic view of your world — neon colors, flashing lights and the big board with all your dining options. There's no reason to hurry, since you're already where you want to be.
Best of all, there's always someplace to put your stuff. A bin, a box, a shelf, a slot with bungee cords. A sliding, folding, tumbling collection of seats that you put together like a puzzle. You never fumble around when you're trying to put something down, because the perfect spot always magically comes to hand.
The fact that the 2009 Nissan Cube S is self-propelled is just a kind of unexpected bonus.
2009 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet Full Test
FOR THE FULL TEST:
Only about 10 seconds elapse in our drive of the 2009 Porsche 911 Carrera S
Cabriolet before we realize that we've just begun a love/hate relationship
with Porsche's most brilliant piece of technology in the last 20 years —
the Doppelkupplungsgetriebe, which, roughly translated, means "badass
Seriously, Porsche's PDK (Porsche Double Clutch) transmission — a new
addition to the 911 model range for 2009 — is as spectacular at changing
gears as it is awkward to use. This transmission has won our hearts with
ridiculously quick shifts and immediate throttle response, but also doused
our spirits with its frustrating interface.
Still, once you start winding corners together after adjusting to the
shifting characteristics of the PDK, you'll quickly realize that the 2009
Porsche Carrera S Cabriolet's combination of newfound power and a
best-of-both-worlds transmission enables it to satisfy the hard-core
performance nerd and Newport Ned alike.
GM Fixes Solstice? Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe
MORE SOLSTICE COUPE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Our hopes were high following the debut of the 2009 Pontiac Solstice Coupe
at the 2008 New York Auto Show last year. We had not forgotten the
ergonomic shortcomings of the Solstice. Nor had its functional limitations
slipped our minds. It was mechanically the same curvaceous Solstice that
had made us swoon in 2006. Only now it had a bitchin' hardtop.
So here we stand again with hearts racing and gaze locked on the 2009
Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe. The GXP offers you 260 horsepower from its turbocharged Ecotec inline-4 and big tires to
put the power to good use, so it's a lot more serious than the standard
Solstice coupe. Its angled roof gives the coupe an angry, menacing stance
unmatched by the roadster. This is the car we secretly want to like. In the
back of our minds, we hope it's different from the 2006 Pontiac Solstice we
lived with for a year in our long-term fleet.
And perhaps it's a measure of the intensity of this hope that our
disappointment is so devastating.
Boxing Match: 2008 Nissan Cube vs. 2008 Scion xB
In the United States, boxy compacts are still a left-of-center novelty.
People buy the Scion xB and Honda Element for their space-efficiency,
versatility and neo-Bauhaus design. And they certainly don't mind the kind
of gas mileage that's made possible by thrifty four-cylinder engines. While
sales of such cars are modest (about 60,000 Scion xBs were sold in 2006,
for example), the xB in particular is a draw for young buyers, who are
worth their weight in iPods.
Zippy Lexus: Lexus IS 250 F-Sport @ the Track
MORE LEXUS IS 250 @ INSIDELINE.COM:
There are three hormone levels in the Lexus IS range, and they play out
like this. The IS 350? Manly. The IS-F? Hair in all the wrong places. IS
250? The one that shaves its legs.
In fact, that should be in the ads. The Lexus IS 250. The Relentless
Pursuit of a Delicious Mochacrapiata. Sure it's the only Lexus you can get
with three pedals, but it's also the only IS where you would dare prune its
deck lid of identification. Ten minutes with a heat gun, and Mary's IS 250
is easily mistaken for Mark's more folic IS 350.
And now that we've antagonized every guy who has ever bought the weak-suck,
small-engine version of the rear-wheel-drive Lexus sport sedan, we offer a
solution to their dilemma. It's called 2008 Lexus IS 250 F Sport, and it
can turn your girlfriend's IS 250 into a ride you can drive without a bag
over your head.
