  • 2016 Lexus GS-F is fast, but not from the future

    2016 Lexus GS-F is fast, but not from the future

    It’s unfair to critique anything outside its purpose. You can’t judge a poem using essay criteria; you can’t pit the latest album from Leonard Cohen against Beyoncé. So you have to ask, even in reviewing a car, what its purpose is and does it succeed. The 2016 Lexus GS-F is meant to be a performance sedan, and in that it definitely succeeds.

    Test drive: Self-parking in the 2016 Jaguar XF S

    After A Win In D.C., Uber Now Faces Up To 25 Charges In Toronto, Will Go To Court In January

    It’s been a bumpy ride for Uber. The mobile-first, on-demand limo and taxi service is now in (or is soon to launch in) 24 cities. But, as you’ve likely heard by now, while Uber and its ilk may represent the future of “car-summoning” services, regulators, unions and existing services aren’t always so impressed.
