American supercar marque Vector may be famous for its W8 and M12, but the company came up with designs for multiple other models, including more attainable models with front-engine layouts. This week we looked at some of the other cars imagined by former Vector designer Michael Santoro.

The Supra nameplate was revived for 2020, with the new A90 generation sticking with inline-6 power and rear-wheel drive. For 2021, the Supra’s inline-6 receives more power and is joined by a new inline-4 option. After testing both engines, it appears the inline-4 could be

Model 3 vs. Model Y vs. Mustang Mach-E | Price, Range, Interior & More

A key advantage of the Model Y, in theory, is the future availability of a third-row seat. While we haven’t sat in it yet, we saw one at the reveal of the Model Y. It looked so cramped that we wouldn’t recommend waiting for it to be available. Most SUVs of this size don’t offer a third row because they lack the space to make it usable.

1980 General Motors X-Cars

The Chevrolet Citation, Buick Skylark, Oldsmobile Omega and Pontiac Phoenix were meant to usher in a new era at GM, and they did—the era of Everything Is Really, Really Terrible. While Chrysler and Ford turned to their European divisions for guidance on how to do front-wheel drive better, GM, which had been building the front-drive Cadillac Eldorado and Olds Toronado since the mid-’60s, must have figured it had all the experience it needed. Wrong! The X-cars suffered every problem imaginable: Bad welds, failing
