Authorities delivered the good news to its rightful owner, 82-year-old Ivan Schneider who says, "It's a miracle. I never thought I'd see the car again. Who would believe a car would show up 45 years later like this?" According to reports, Schneider originally bought his Jaguar "dream car" back when he was just 35-years-old. Unfortunately, he didn't get to enjoy it for long, as the then newly successful... Read More

    It's been quite a while since we've had news about the Tesla Roadster. The original Tesla electric vehicle hasn't been sold for a few years and we're in a quiet period before the next-generation shows its face.

    Tokyo: Toyota FT-86 Open Concept leaves us feeling flushed
    1384981200

    When last we checked in on our topless would-be hero, the mighty Toyota FT-86 convertible had been reportedly placed on "indefinite hold." That was back in early October, not long after Toyota had trotted out the rear-wheel-drive canvasback to Scion dealers as a possible future product carrot if they decided not to turn in their franchises. And yet, we're ...

    Quick Spin: 2013 Nissan 370Z Roadster
    1377187140

    Convertibles are a highly specialized tool that come with compromises. They require a warm climate and sunshine to achieve their promise, but at the same time stick you with sacrificed rigidity and extra weight all year round. Many droptop drivers happily accept those trade-offs, but the deal-killer for me is privacy. I just don't like everyone at the ...

    Unlike the last Lamborghini crash we reported on, the driver of this 2008 Murcielago roadster decided to come clean about his careless and expensive accident rather than abandon his exotic car and mysteriously flee the scene. According to reports, the Lambo valued at around $200,000 (over $400K new), nearly flipped over as it dangerously spun out onto ...

    A few things have changed since the Spartan V track car was announced almost three years ago. Back in 2010, the red open-top sportscar from Australia was slated to be a 300 kg (661-pound) apex-hugger with 170 horsepower coming from a 1,200-cc Ducati engine. The slinky red bodywork remains, but the engine now comes from Honda: a 2.0-litre four-cylinder ...

    Rolls-Royce may be working on a new, mega-powerful roadster for 2017. CAR reports the convertible would conceivably boast a V16 engine. Of course, the report gets a little muddled here, with CAR saying the engine would be very similar to that of the one that powers the Bugatti Veyron. We all know the French machine makes use of a W16 mill. Even so, the ...
