2020 Porsche 911 Carrera

LA-Auto-Show-LogoPorsche unveiled the eighth generation of its venerable 911 sports car at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Although certainly familiar, the styling is revised — particularly at the rear, which hosts a wider spoiler and light bar — and save for the front and rear fasciae, the body panels are now made entirely of aluminum. Wider wheel housings cover 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rear wheels, and flush-mounted electric door handles extend outward when needed.

Jim Rockford Firebird, Rockford Files

Though they were nowhere near as flashy as the typical “star car,” the no-nonsense Pontiac Firebirds that James Garner drove on The Rockford Files are among the best-loved TV/movie vehicles of all time.

Jim Rockford is the only TV detective with a driving move named for him. The late James Garner, who played Jim Rockford, didn’t invent the reverse 180-degree “J-turn,” but he used it so often in The Rockford Files television series that the maneuver is forever associated with the character. To execute a “Rockford,” Jim Rockford would drive about 35 mph in reverse, then let off the gas, turn the steering wheel sharply, and pull on the emergency brake. The car’s front end would swing around 180 degrees, and Rockford would be off—now driving forward.
