Talkin’ ‘Bout a Revolution

You just never know how one thing can lead to another. After my Texas Lawyer article on self-driving cars was published, a producer from the Legal Talk Network called and invited me to appear on a podcast of the show Lawyer 2 Lawyer, discussing legal issues with autonomous vehicles. I taped the episode on February 18, and […]

The Alternate Mary Barra Interview

You may recall my recent annoyance with Matt Lauer’s sorry excuse for an “exclusive” interview with General Motors CEO Mary Barra.

“Is That Your Car?” – A Woman in a Porsche 911

I recently had the good fortune to drive and photograph a beautiful 2009 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S cabriolet. The occasion? It belongs to my employer, and she knew I wanted to drive it. One small reason among a plethora of others that I have a fantastic job. I was out photographing the 911 on the […]

The Next Generation

I have created a monster, and he is my nephew. Meet Wesley. Wesley knows more about cars than you do. He probably knows more about cars than I do. Wesley is 10 years old. All I remember doing is giving him and his brother, Tim (also a car fan), some Top Gear DVDs. And maybe […]

Now playing…

Where is Motorista currently appearing on the motorweb? Motor on over to Jean Knows Cars, one of my favorite sites, for Jean Jennings’ video review of the 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S, in which I and some other motorheads make a guest appearance.  Our conclusion? Porsche is no longer simply a “man’s car.”  What do […]
