    1406246340

    Oh, the heady days of 1993, back when the Clinton Presidency was just getting underway, and it seemed like every hot new rock band was coming out of Seattle. Sports cars in North America had finally shaken off the shackles that slowed them during the '70s and '80s, and you could buy any number of legitimately quick vehicles again. MotorWeek recently went ...

    Report: Unifor may establish local union for Toyota's Canadian plants
    1406203200

    Union tactics apparently translate across borders, as Canada's Unifor may take inspiration from the United Auto Workers' recent move at the Volkswagen factory in Chattanooga, TN, and establish a local for the Toyota factories in Cambridge and Woodstock, ON. Unifor last attempted to organize the workers at the two factories, which are responsible for ...

    Official: 2015 Toyota Sienna SE keeps the swagger, adds thoughtful updates [w/videos]
    1405792800

    Toyota found huge success with its "Swagger Wagon" rap video for the 2011 Sienna SE. It showed that a minivan could actually sort of maybe be fun and didn't have to be a lame vehicle for people who long ago lost their sense of humor. Now that there is a slight refresh for the 2015 model, the company is trying to capture that effervescent image again with ...

    Official: Toyota Prius sets a different kind of Nürburgring lap record [w/video]
    1405522800

    Scroll down the leaderboards of Nürburgring lap times and you'll see mostly racing cars, supercars and sports cars. Delve deep enough and you'll eventually get to hatchbacks and sedans, albeit the most performance-focused of their kind. But a hybrid? Sure, the Porsche 918 Spyder posted the top time for a street-legal series production car, and it's ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Ultimate Edition
    1405094400

    Introduced at the end of 2006, this is the last year for the Toyota FJ Cruiser, the reincarnated FJ40-series Land Cruiser that will shortly journey to Takama-ga-hara, the Plain of High Heaven. In its first model year, we drove it to SEMA and found it, shall we say, coarse. It bobbled on the freeway and droned in the cabin, its boxy interior providing four ...

    Spy Shots: Lightweight Toyota GT86 spotted on Nordschleife with carbon panels, upgraded aero
    1403809200

    We've seen (and frankly reported on) so many rumours of more powerful and performance-focused versions of the Subaru BRZ, Toyota GT86 and Scion FR-S at this point that haven't materialized that, at this point, we're almost tired of them.
