Back in 2004 the suburban warriors and middle aged house wives (and house husbands) who jumped on the opportunity to buy the base model of Porsche’s first SUV were probably not familiar with the term VR6.

Corrado in Spanish means “to run.” Corrado after two decades of use in North America means “better off running,” “gotta run to the auto parts store,’ or simply “the runs.” In 1988, the global reaction to Volkswagen’s Scirocco replacement was “Oh you’re being serious about this?” It was an odd move for VW, and an […]
I will probably regret this later, but I’m going to go ahead and say it anyway. I like the Volkswagen CC. Sure, it is a Passat with a fastback shape missing the center rear seat, but you know what, I’m fine with that and you should be too. Why? Maybe it is the Jameson speaking, […]
