Oh, what a feeling!

After holding strong for months, Toyota expects to miss its global production target as the automaker capitulates to the double whammy of parts shortages and the pandemic.

When Louie, the medium-sized Groodle, arrived at our home in 2020, he was not quite the mini-sized dog I was expecting, but an adorable puppy nonetheless. Regardless of his size, my daughter did all the necessary research on our gorgeous puppy and ensured that he was of good breeding and...

Bloody hell, I thought, as I rounded the last corner on the race track at 130 km/h and saw a family of geese waddling their way across the track. I hadn’t considered geese to be a significant concern while I was tearing my way around the Phillip Island circuit. But,...

I love the motion screensavers that my Apple TV presents, slow-moving and mesmerising videos of spectacular world scenes. Whether it is the rolling aerial video of Central Park in New York City, the underwater setting of the Big Eye Trevally off Borneo, or the flyover through the Waimmanu Valley in...

Appreciation is the recognition and enjoyment of the good qualities of someone or something. There are so many things I am appreciative of. Where do I start?

My family come quickly to mind. Of course, my wife and daughters sit right at the top of the list of things I appreciate....

Not all motorsport requires drivers to race door handle to door handle to win. Regularity is a form of motorsport for enthusiasts who want to compete and win, even if they are not the fastest car on the track.

Regularity events reward consistency. You don't have to have the fastest car...

Porsche Boxster

As the world of sports car manufacturers continues to embrace the SUV as a way of staying afloat, Porsche was one of the first car manufacturers to pivot with the Cayenne. However, few people know that the Boxster was the vehicle that helped save Porsche.
