The End of What It Looks Like

I’m in Melbourne right now – my first time to Australia, and my 50th country. I’m speaking at the Nikon AIPP, an incredible convention filled with some wonderful people. Yesterday I gave the keynote address that opened the conference; it’s a fearful task to inspire people at 8:30am. It was …

One Subject, Endless Possibilities

Zion National Park had its beginnings over 240 million years ago. The Virgin River carved out the canyon, and continues to do so. Hard to believe when you take a look at it meandering through the park. It is narrow with a brownish hue. Its cascades are mild and there are lots …

2017 BMW X4 M40i

When BMW pioneered the fastback SUV with its X6, it wasted little time bringing out an M version, figuring correctly that buying an X6 isn’t about making a rational choice—it’s about making a statement.

2017 Audi A4 Allroad

When the previous-generation Audi Allroad replaced the A4 Avant in the U.S. model range for the 2013 model year, sales increased by 50 percent.

2017 Honda CR-V

Honda has had its ups and downs over the past few years, but the CR-V is one of the rocks upon which the house stands. Through October 2016, the compact crossover accounted for almost one-quarter of Honda’s annual volume in North America. And the automaker knows that if you want …

2017 Toyota C-HR Euro-Spec

Sometimes you need more than flowers or chocolates or even a dewy-eyed kitten to say, “Sorry.” Sometimes you need a subcompact crossover. That’s the case with the new Toyota C-HR, which will be coming to the U.S. next year and which is at least as much an apology as it …

2017 Porsche 718 Cayman PDK Automatic

If you’ve read anything about Porsche’s junior sports cars, the 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster, during the last year, you probably know that its mid-cycle update went well beyond the cosmetic nips and tucks typical of automobiles entering midlife. In addition to de rigueur fascia, headlight, and taillight revisions, each …
