2021 Lexus IS

2021 Lexus IS

The COVID-19 pandemic may have put the kibosh on traditional auto shows for the near future, but automakers still have new and redesigned products poised to hit the market, and those manufacturers are increasingly turning to the Internet to debut their soon-to-arrive new vehicles. Today there were two online unveilings, in fact—Nissan took the wraps off its redesigned 2021 Rogue compact SUV this morning, and this evening Lexus debuted a revamped version of its rear-drive-based compact sport sedan via a Facebook Live webcast.

25 Late-Model Collectible Cars

1985 Buick Riviera Convertible

While styling, performance, and rarity have been the traditional tickets to collectibility, vehicles that offer features—styling or otherwise—that are monuments to their era or simply aren’t likely to reappear also have a shot. It’s why we believe cars of the Fifties are so treasured today; their chrome, tall fins, and sheer mass so perfectly characterized the jet-aged optimism of the time, and it’s almost certain their likes will ever be seen again.

Maintaining Your Car During the Shutdown

Don’t let leaves gather under the hood of your daily driver. Here are a few simple tips to help you keep your car in good shape until we’re all back on the road.

If you’re like most Americans right now, you’re not using your car much. You’re likely hunkered down at home, working from the couch, and doing as little in-person shopping as possible. And that’s good–we’re supposed to be limiting our contact with other folks during the shutdown, as strange as that might feel.

Woodfliend Mall, COVID-19, Scenes from the Pandemic

Once the largest mall in America, Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, IL, is still among the nation’s biggest shopping destinations, and is typically quite crowded most Sunday afternoons–but this was no normal Sunday. Instead, this picture was taken on the first full day of Illinois’ “shelter-in-place” order. The landscape was similarly desolate all around the mall, save for the occasional restaurant manager carting perishables into rented vans.

2012 Lexus LFA

2012 Lexus LFA

Lexus sold just over 1200 of its LC 500 and LC 500h grand-touring coupes in 2019. Relative to the popular Lexus RX crossover SUV, which racked up more than 110,000 sales, the LC may seem rare and exclusive. But all things are relative. If you think the LC is a rare sight—and it sort of is–then you’ve probably forgotten about the Lexus LFA.
