1. Jaguar F-Type – MSRP from $69,000

Since parting ways with Ford, it seems that Jaguar has become more bold and daring. The British automaker is returning to the roadster segment of the market with a very bold offering, the F-Type. The exterior of the car alone is sleek, elegant and very British in all the right ways. Add to that the V6 and V8 supercharged engine options that kick out plenty of power, plus an aluminum chassis that is strong and lightweight, and you have a compelling performance machine. The icing on the cake is the highly sophisticated interior with soft leather wrapping just about everything imaginable.

  • Sinjin Smyth

    The economy must be getting better, instead of looking at a 1999 car to replace my worn out junker, I am now looking at 2001 cars. Glad I got that advanced degree so I can afford a “new” car. Sometimes I wish I was raised a crook, cheat, and liar so I could be among the wealthy.

    • JMac

      Sinjin, I am guessing you have a very worthwhile advanced degree in philosophy, history or education. My crystal ball says you also work in some public sector aspect of the economy. Oh, and you voted for Obama. Close?

      • Butch Darling

        If it’s an Obama voter, it’s a first class citizen.

        • dave foust

          more like a first class idiot

          • LumberJock

            Oh ye of limited intellect …

        • Waclaw Jerzy Borken-Hagen

          You mean bottom of the barrel, low information, sociopath
          who hates his own country ? You are extremely generous
          calling it a “citizen”.

          • LumberJock

            Enlighten me.
            My educationally limited perception of citizen is a voter; one who is classified as such or one of the classified individual’s minor offspring or developmentally challenged adult offspring.
            Lead me to the oasis of knowledge.

          • Waclaw Jerzy Borken-Hagen

            No oasis here. Definition of a voter is grossly distorted
            these days since you don’t have to produce a photo ID.
            It encompasses everything that can walk and even the
            ones which can’t, because they are dead.
            It is generous to refer to them as citizens even though
            technically they may be pending verification.

          • LumberJock

            Yew halve pure reeding skils.
            Look again at the definition.
            Your descent into republi-can’t definition of voter gives you away as a Polish collaborator with the nazis, masquerading as a southern politikian these daze.
            Presentation of an ID is republi-can’t speak for voter intimidation; this is an adult site; kiddies aren’t welcome.

          • Waclaw Jerzy Borken-Hagen

            Hey, this is not a republican or democrat issue
            I am simply questioning the validity of the status quo
            things will fall where they may and neither one of us
            is going to change that.

          • LumberJock

            Still you neither read for comprehension, nor punctuate your marks & remarks.

          • gibby04s

            You are an idiot.

          • Tommy

            Really? Proving who you are before voting is “intimidation”. You cannot cash a welfare check without ID…if you have your welfare check depositied directly, (gasp) you must have an ID to open the account, can’t get on an airplane without 1, get food stamps, sign up for any public school…and on and on. Presenting and ID to vote is not intimidation, but another liberal lie to cover the fact that there is no basis for NOT having some form of ID. Hell, even prisioners/parloees have offender ID cards that are gov’t issues.. No excuse except your cannot cheat on the election and vote often or illegally

          • OleScout

            Look -
            There is a right to vote; there is no right to collect ‘welfare’ – whatever that is in your puerile and febrile brain.
            Poor people don’t have the resources to steal elections … that’s left to the criminally wealthy.
            I’ve no doubt that you are either wealthy or a criminal – maybe you are a criminal that ‘feels’ it is wealthy. Your writing style removes you from the consideration of being wealthy and (and either self or formally) well educated.

            Since the Constitutional right to vote is unencumbered by anything except felony convictions, that right is disengenuously ignored by the political right for their relative political advantage. This is where lie, cheat and steal applies to republi-can’t and liber-contrar-ian behaviors.

          • Carl Gottstein

            Why do democrats fear voter ID? Obvious. They can not win if they do not cheat. They are all about the Constitution? Not when it concerns the right to bear arms. Fire them all. Flip the Senate in 2014 and Impeach the Chump-in-chief. Enough is enough.

        • Emenot Goaway

          How ironic but I have to agree… as he/she will have priority in all civil services!

          • LumberJock

            Goaway -
            Better that uncivility be reserved for those too insularly short-sighted to appreciate the values of real populism, democracy and cultural self-determinism. You will in the end (pun intended) be the real victims of the tea-potty and the republi-can’ts
            .

          • JJBuck

            More likely casualties of liberal economic illiteracy.

          • LumberJock

            If your grasp of Econ was as vast as the maw we call your mouth, you wouldn’t make mistakes like bashing liberal concepts.

          • JJBuck

            No brain, no headache. Go back to sleep… Your next check’s not ready yet.

          • Butch Darling

            Are you referring to my Army retirement check?
            Or my paycheck here on the farm?

          • gibby04s

            You are an idiot!

          • gibby04s

            You are an idiot

          • Butch Darling

            Saying it twice only makes you twice as incorrect and twice as inaccurate

      • AmericaPutFirst

        And you voted for the outsourcing, Cayman Islands stockpiler? Romney was a doofus for all but the uber rich.

        • Butch Darling

          for them, also

        • Marcello Costarica

          Oh yes, Romney was a bad old rich republican who despised poor people and was racist, of course. Obama made millions writing a book about how great he was when he really never did much. The billionaire George Soros and all the super rich Hollywood stars who support Obama because he cares for the “poor” are all looking out for us regular folks, of course, protecting us from bad rich republicans who are racist. How about the millionaire supporter of Obama who received 1/2 a billion of tax dollars for his solar company who even democrat finance experts said would fail. How about the Canadian friends of Barry and Michelle who received 100′s of millions to create the Obamacare website. if hypocrisy was a stock on the NYSE, most of the investors would be democrats and they would be enjoying gains year after year after year….

          • mikeyboss

            LOL Marcello. Isn’t it amazing HOW shallow and clueless the average Obama supporter is? Everyone knows Obama is BY FAR the worst-ever POTUS (try getting the avg moonbat to defend his horrid policies–they can’t), and yet it speaks to the sheer stupidity and/or partisan ways for anyone (eg AmericaPutFirst, etc.) to still support the Incompetent-in-Chief.

            BTW, speaking of the Cayman Islands, I bet AmericaPutFirst hasn’t a clue that the Cayman’s is where Soros keeps his billions.

          • Holly Joy

            Stupid Americans, still believe in that left/right fakery.

          • Jammer

            Holly is dead on. How is it with both Bush and Obama that things have gotten worse? Wars, deficits, congress inaction, increasing poverty rate, crumbling infrastructure, education, etc. Blame Bush, Blame Obama. It’s like bickering parents asking kids to take sides…

          • Garys_opinion

            Under Bush we had record employment. It only dropped off in his last two years when both houses in congress were controlled by Democrats, er I mean Communists!

          • b c

            Bush’s highest unemployment number 6.9% when he was leaving office. took Obama 5 years to get that low!! And Bush will go down as an under average president!! Somuch for the current “clown & chief”.

          • Thomas Burkhart

            Wall Street n the fed own both parties.

          • John Schmidt

            Holly has made the only intelligent statement here. Obama is a token negro President, Nothing more, a face man for a shadow government that owns both sides. Oh yes you get to vote and pick one.

          • Jeff Wehmueller

            Well said!

        • radical1a

          Well at least Romney wasn’t a Commie/Socialist Demwitted POS

          • Butch Darling

            mitt-witt is as communistic as any other Wall Street hedge fund manager. They push costs and losses off on the state & federal governments and put the profits in their overseas pockets where they pay no taxes.

        • Jeff Wehmueller

          Ford and GM also build cars in Mexico and other places in the world. If you knew squat about anything, you’d realize, “outsourcing” is not about sending jobs over seas, but the only way some manufacturers can make their products available at a decent price. Ask the Kennedy’s and the Kerry’s about Cayman Island bank accounts while you’re at it. We’d have a much stronger economy now if Romney was at the helm instead of this “doofus” idiots like you elected.

          • Garys_opinion

            Thanks to Bill Clinton who approved NAFTA, and gave China Favored Nation Status in exchange for campaign contributions.

          • John Schmidt

            Clinton approved Nafta but it originated under Bush Sr. Presidency, so get some learning

          • Garys_opinion

            Well John,I knew that, but without Clinton’s signature it would have never become law. This was much to the dismay of his union backers. So you see, I may have a little more learning than you.

          • JimB

            Who was it that warned of that giant sucking sound? Oh, yes, that ignorant cretin Perot.

        • Garys_opinion

          Really? Worse than what we have now?
          This country would have been so much better under Romney.

          Of course you low-information voters don’t have a clue.

          • Thomas Burkhart

            is is like riding in a car

          • Thomas Burkhart

            Darn edit doesn’t work.

      • JJBuck

        Exactly. Well said.

    • LlarryLLama

      Hey it was new, in 2001:-)

    • johnny99

      Why not quit your jobs and go on Obamacare, food stamps and get disability, and an Obama phone, like all the liberals?

      • LumberJock

        5 lies in one sentence & you’re not capable of knowing it.

        • worleyeoe

          Um the “all liberals” part is certainly an exaggeration but the rest of his points hold. Obamacare: continues its slow descent towards collapse. Food Stamps and disability recipients well above any other president. And why has Obama allowed the Lifeline program to grown to an annual $1.6B cost as of two years ago? That’s ridiculous, LumberJack.

          • Butch Darling

            We-ull shee-utt yew dunn tole 5 moore lies in wun moore sin-tense.
            1. PPACA, ObamaCare to you illiterates and traitors is far from Medicare for all, but it’s not in any kind of slow descent except in the imagination of nagging nabobs of negativism like ‘Jock’s republi-can’ts.
            2 & 3. Welfare distribution is a reasonable outcome of the engineered descent into organized poverty designed by the neauveau riche and other republi-can’ts, funda-gelicals and mindless shizz-botts hiding among the nagging nabobs of negativism.
            4. Did the ‘Lifeline’ program grown or groan to 1.6 B? Defend yoor accusation. Correct your grammar. Improve your syntax – or pay a sin-tax.
            5. Your inability to read for content accuracy is #5. His name is LumberJock.

            He’s at the Combine, so I’m deputed to respond to yew. If you were any gud, he’d call on OleScout to skin you or his sister, RickiDickLess to scrape your skin off with a rusty potato peeler.

          • Joe Schmo

            Hmmm thats funny. FYI, the Lifeline program is not paid for by the government but rather additional taxes on cell phone plans. And Obama didnt even create the program so dont blame him

          • Adrian Elliott

            It is paid for by taxes, but not paid for by the Gov’t? WTF?

          • Waclaw Jerzy Borken-Hagen

            Leave it to the liberals and they will prove your point.
            It is a mental disease.

          • jadams76

            The classic liberal dodge. “We didn’t create this. ” No you just took it to the most absurd extreme and send another cautionary note to any politician foolish enough to “reach across the aisle” to work with Libs. As for a it being a tax, does it really matter when the government forces you to pay for Obamaphones for Obama voters?

          • Tommy

            Another liberal lie….
            Eligible households can receive up to $9.25 per month in discounts. Additional state support may be available. Approximately 2,000 telephone companies are eligible to provide these discounts. A household applies for the discounts through their telecommunications company. These companies are then reimbursed through the Lifeline Program.

          • SteveP

            No, another conservative lie. Obama phones? The program goes back to Woodrow Wilson. http://www.factcheck.org/2009/10/the-obama-phone/

            The president has no direct impact on the program, and one could hardly call these devices “Obama Phones,” as the e-mail author does. This specific program, SafeLink, started under President George Bush, with grants from an independent company created under President Bill

            Clinton, which was a legacy of an act passed under President Franklin Roosevelt, which was influenced by an agreement reached between telecommunications companies and the administration of President Woodrow Wilson.

            Wilson Phones, anyone?

        • Packy Flickinger

          Nope, he’s fairly accurate. I personally know of 2 that went on that plan when Obama took office.

        • walters474

          Can we change the subject to religion please?

          • LumberJock

            This is a religion to funda-gelicals. They lie, cheat and steal. They lie instead of accepting truth. They cheat to win elections, since that is the only way they can win. They steal from the poor because the wealthy would crush them without hesitation.

          • gibby04s

            You are soooo clever. Not

          • tokey

            In mississippi and most of the bible belt, there is virtue in lying, cheating and stealing

          • Butch Darling

            They are losing jobs at an exorbitant rate. In a couple of generations (outside aqua- and agri- culture) there will be no more ‘value added’ employment available in the south.
            Those people are too dum to tie shoe laces or buckle belts; they are loafers, so that’s what they wear them, and they keep their pants up with pork bellies and suspenders. They can’t read; they can’t (or won’t) learn to operate machinery. They think shifting jobs from one place to tex’ass (or some other place there) is ‘creating jobs’. I’ve seen smarter cow dung in our pastures.

      • mikeyboss

        Johnny99, you hit on the ever-increasing core Democrat voter: PERPETUAL WELFARE RECIPIENT. Romney’s “47%” comments were essentially correct, as a very recent study showed the vast majority of various types of welfare recipients voted DEMOCRAT.

        All the clueless moonbats care about is having their hands out, waiting for their “freebies” from Barack “Sugar Daddy” Obama and the Democrats.

        • Packy Flickinger

          When he made that statement, it was actually 51%. That number has since risen. Funny, it was in the 20′s under Bush. Obama has doubled everything except spending, thats tripled.

          • OleScout

            People with a functioning brain actually believe this crap you spew? Just how racist and stew-peed can you liars be? You abuse the First Amendment with impunity and then brag about shoving your lies down the throats of the gullible. We who are honest, socially and politically responcible, practice humane behavior and believe democracy is for everybody, not just the chosun fools like you.

          • Packy Flickinger

            We who have a brain, education, and the desire to research facts for ourselves know better. All you libs can do is sit back and insult. Typical cop out for the uneducated, uninformed and immature. Then again, what do you expect from an alcoholic.

          • Butch Darling

            Packy –
            We do our own research here. We have to – we’re all collich grads … with a Master’s (minimum to work here).
            We are educated liberals with callused hands, not the white shirts of DINO’s. Since you tea-potty-ers are too freaqueing lazy to work, sounds like transference and projection to US.

        • LumberJock

          If any group has ‘its hand out for gubmint money’ it’s the tea-potty-ers and other non-patriot political parrots of the rite that have racist undertones to their criticism of the President and plans to increase the scope of Democracy at the expense of the proponents of plutocracy – like mikey, jerzy, worley, jonny and the refugee from costarica.
          You people a sickening in your resistance to democratic capitalism and other attempts to bring political, social and financial equity to our national culture.

      • http://www.mycricket.com/cell-phones Troll A Licious

        I bet you blame Obama for your incompetence as well

    • Auto Motive

      I applaud you so loudly. The young now need two jobs the pay is low the hours long the benefits are non existent. The DEMs want to increase the min wage to a meager $10.10 so in a year you get poverty food stamps salary of $22k. I say vote DEM for the social programs to continue. The GOP is interested in big business and the military spending. They vote over 40 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act but have no plan of their own to fill the void for the 50 million of the uninsured. NO plan but lets repeal it.

      • Adrian Elliott

        Why does there need to be a plan for me to pay for someone elses health care? As far as the minimum wage goes, get a higher paying job! We have many quit where I work because work is too inconvinient. It pays about $8000 a month, but who should have to work a job that doesn’t fit their lifestyle? Just make everything from flipping burgers to running a corporation $100 an hour and everything is good :P

        • Auto Motive

          If people are uninsured they go to the emergency room for treatment. Billions are spent there currently and we all pay. Every person should have health care and the ACA is a start. Yes we have problems with it but also many benefits. The GOP has no plan of their own to replace the ACA. You need to take a lesson in history on the minimum wage. I was being paid $.50 hour digging grave plots back in the 60s. When the minimum wage became law my wage was doubled which enabled me to attend college. Back then tuition with books was $250 yr. Affordable education can give everyone an opportunity to excel but today the labor market with 3 trillion dollars in cash sitting many corporations are not hiring but making current employees work longer hours. The avg age of a McDonald worker is 29 yrs old married with one child. At min wage a full time worker makes $16500 yr. is eligible for food stamps and goes to the emergency room when sick. With $10 hr that worker now makes $22000 yr and is off food stamps, can afford paying for health insurance thru the ACA and still is at the poverty level but can survive in this very tough economy. I attend stocking our local food pantry and its a eye opening experience on the families that need this help. You should attend one volunteer session and it doesn’t cost you anything but a morning a giving your time.

          • Waclaw Jerzy Borken-Hagen

            If ACA is a start, I wouldn’t like to see the finished product.
            Calamity on instalments is not what we need.

          • Auto Motive

            Social security was a start as was Medicare and they were both were not well liked from the start. If you volunteered just once like my family does at a local food bank and see the families that need our help it is incredible. My wife and I come from poor families and yes both were on food stamps and thru our employers received costs for our education had successful careers raised a family and live comfortably. We are not liberals but independents looking at the fabric that makes the US. Its people of color, ethic heritages, people struggling in the economic times we have today. Its the poor, uneducated, seniors, children, the disabled. The ACA stalled started and now running. Over 4 million signed up and over the years to come it will be accepted like SS and Medicare as one of the most significant historical chapters in American history.

          • enorl76

            “4 million signed up”

            Most of those have been proven to be Medicare renewals. Sorry, incorrect facts always seem to beguile the pie-in-the-sky rhetoric of utopia.

          • Holly Joy

            Everyone has an ethnicity contrary to what Anglo Saxons want you to believe. Anglo is also an ethnicity and implying otherwise is just playing along with a lie designed to divide people along lines which benefit only Anglo imperialists.

        • Mark Glowacki

          damn 8k a month are you kidding me. You gotta be making this up or you are working on the coast. I am a state certified electrician and barely pullin in 4. where do you work I am never sick and love my work but for double my pay I would do anything. Yes I am a hard working liberal that runs circles around all the repubs I work with!!

    • Packy Flickinger

      There’s a lot of “crooks, cheats and liars” in prison who aren’t rich to dispute that statement. It just makes you look like a whining looser.

      sounds like your “whoa-me” life isnt fair Occutard wall street type…

      And I am going to get some refurbishing in my 2003 Town Car. 88,000 miles and counting. Probably good for at least 200,000. I could afford a new car but none are as good as this old clunker.

    • b c

      So you haven’t figured out working lots of hours and being creative instead of being satisfied with your safe 9-5 job leads to wealth..

    1,2,9,10. The rest is hideous.

    • walterbrob

      That Corvette will still be a daily driver when the rest are being repaired for by taking out a second mortgage

      • Auto Motive

        MY 95 vette is a daily driver that still turns heads. Spring summer early fall and my total maint bill is synthetic oil change and filter $75. at the dealer. A service on a the 911 would buy me a set of brand new Michelin Pilots.

      • MekoSuka

        Hey now. I like the Vette, but they’re not the ‘most’ reliable either. I have numerous friends who own them. They break sitting in driveways. This year alone two of my friends (C6, and Z06) both had steering rack failures while sitting in a heated garage.

  • Mr_Scorpio

    I guess that there’s not a whole lot of excitement with affordable cars today.

  • walterbrob

    good luck getting that jag fixed in a couple years

  • Butch Darling

    The Cadillac ELR is the only responsible one here. I’ll be test driving the first one I find. Also I’m an Obama voter who isn’t apologizing for being a progressive.

    • johnny99

      How “responsible” was it for GM to get itself into such as awful position that it forced taxpayers to bail it out, with help from your pal Obama? Yes, the makers of Cadillac already forced me to bail out their company, but they can’t force me to buy their overpriced and inferior cars.

      • Butch Darling

        They are neither inferior nor over-priced. You are merely too fucking poor to afford one. I can afford two; a wagon and a coupe.

        • LVR

          Didn’t know welfare paid so well.

          • Butch Darling

            How many farmers with law degrees do you know?
            That’re on welfare.

        • johnny99

          Wrong darling. Don’t mind if I call you darling, do you? ;) Anyway, I happen to prefer German cars. I’ve got a Porsche 911 and my wife has a a Cayenne SUV. (145 mph!) Anyway, a Vette is a plastic junk pile that rattles as you drive it off the dealer’s lot; he’s laughing at you for just giving him what, 60K for a GM-made pile of crap?

          • LumberJock

            I like my Benz station wagon, an E320. But I also wish to keep it forever and that means reducing the stress on it by driving it less. My CTS wagon is more fuel efficient than an Audi Q, BMW 5-Series or the E350, if one can find one (around here the dealers seem to stock only E-4XX, 500′s & 550′s in 4-Matic). Buying a US manufactured station wagon was my goal. If the built any 350′s in an unionized Alabama plant or 5-Series in a unionized S.Carolna plant youse guyse might have a argument.

            Given the extremely irresponcible reaction or republi-can’ts to the labor plebescite in Chattanooga … the future of production of foreign brands in the US is in jeopardy.

        Bush bailed out the auto industry, but I am sure you are the type that is not swayed by facts: http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/johncassidy/2012/03/an-inconvenient-truth-it-was-george-w-bush-who-bailed-out-the-auto-makers.html

        • LumberJock

          Obama bailed out the auto sector — shrub bailed out the banks & insurance companies that cross collateralized its losses and privatized its profits — overseas. The auto industry provided a profit to the taxpayers while banks and insurance companies trundled the cash overseas.

          • Auto Motive

            yes and no. Profit no but we did get back everything minus 10billion.

          • LumberJock

            You aren’t entitled to a unique set of facts. The missing money is from TARP. The media has been too kind to political liars like you.

          • enorl76

            Nor are you entitled to your unsubstantiated claims.

            The 10B loss figure is reported from the Treasury dept and re-reported via Reuters: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/12/10/us-autos-gm-treasury-idUSBRE9B815Y20131210

            Not to mention 10 years of no taxes on GM… actual loss >$10B

            Also, had the automakers (GM/Chrysler) properly bankrupted, then my grandfather wouldn’t be out the $120K in GM bonds. So double loss for him.

            But that’s okay to bail out unions and friends of Obama right? Don’t bring up Bush… this was an loan meant to be a continuity strategy started by Bush so the new Obama administration could take over making the decision to bail out or not.

          • LumberJock

            I don’t believe you. I believe you are here to either:

            Which is it?

          • LumberJock

            If your grandfather’s entire net worth was $120-K in GM bonds you have a point – it’s even a valid point. Buuuuttttttttttt, I get the subliminal message that your Granddad had well diversified holdings and this was probably less than 5% of his net. I’d also say you would have celebrated the mitt-witt’s election for the rest of your life, by continuing to support republi-can’ts – especially those too cruel and stupid to hold elected office
            .

        Can you imagine how many families would be out of jobs if it wasn’t for Pres Obama? Don’t get me wrong Susie, but facts show every employee of every supply chain from tier 1 thru tier 3 including every mom and pop that had restaurants shops around those companies. I do blame GM and today history is repeating itself with GM placing so much emphasis in marketing truck and suvs ( biggest profit maker) and they are sitting. Recent incentives on autotrader shows $10-13k off high inventory models. If GM does it again so many will pay the piper and it won’t be the tax payer. I understand Fiat may be interested in a cheap stock.

            is Obama a deal maker? Answer No. is Obama the number one golfing president ever? answer Yes. Will Obama ever allow those in the know to talk open and freely about Libya ? Answer no. Is Obama the largest food stamp president ever? answer Yes. Did Obama fix the economy on main st like he Promised ? Answer no. Has Obama closed gitmo like he promised ? answer No. Why is it that you would support a president which has told the americans lie after lie. Like you can keep your DR. And you can keep your health insurance if you like it Real world answers which by the way liberal MSNBC states are both no and both are wrong statements by president Obama .Explain to me what he has done . Oh and one last point, Obama was elected that first time to bring America together his words not mine. We are now more divide then ever before. I am not a racist so do not come back with that racist crap the liberals always use , I also thought jimmy carter was a bad president and almost as bad as screw up as Obama and he is white.

Again under Obama

          • Butch Darling

            Obama isn’t doing anything you accuse him of doing. To me the best thing about your accusations is that that you are functionally incompetent at writing and communicating.

            We sat around the waiting room at VA reading your crap yesterday. Most of us were laughing so hard, the PTSD group didn’t have a ‘downer’ day. The guys wanted me to thank you. But I won’t

          • audi13760

            Obama has not stopped the nsa monitoring. He will not look into the IRS scandal against REPS . I guess you think Obama did not lie about keeping your DR and your insurance or did he not have a clue what was in the law with his name on it . Either way pretty stupid. I guess Gitmo must be closed in your mind because it is still open even though the president promised to close it. Tell me were I am wrong besides you do not like my English I guess I must be right or you would have had a better come back then that . Oh and by the way try asking the people on unemployment if they would rather have a job . I bet they would. Unemployment is not a good thing like Harry Reid said
            it was . Oh and by the way if Obama is so great why will you not defend any of the above except how bad my English is and why is his approval rating 41%. It is time for this country to pull together and that means no tea party or left wing nut jobs all either one of those do is divide . Until people like you tea party admit that the far left and right are wrong and need to work to get things done it will not get better. Right now we have a president that will not even talk to the speaker of the house. They both need to grow and realize the country is more important then special interest groups. By the way this happened under Reagan when tip oneil ws the speaker of the house . Reagan got in his limo with no aids went to tip’s office through out his aids and the following week over 100 bills passed the congress. This is what a leader should do . And by the way Clinton did the same thing on the phone.

        • Butch Darling

          If this was a real participatory capitalist culture, the federal government would help all businesses with Engineering, Research & Development and access to distribution. But … it’s not. It’s a fascist little fiefdom being run by wanna be’s that lack the guts to make a decision.
          You people keep assigning character traits you venerate to the President. This projection and transferrence illustrates – irrevocably – your distrust of participatory principles inherent in competition, capitalism and democracy. An intransigent republi-can’t minority in the Senate has forced the President to govern by executive fiat instead of his preferred legislative concorde.
          It’s time for advocates of the Unitary Executive format of ‘ruling’ to yield to the concept of governing by legislative commitment and juridical temperament. This is a Democratic Republic, not the Rich Peoples’ Economic Development Experiment.

          • audi13760

            You are right this is a capitalist country ,please explain that to your socialist president. Obama has not grown jobs because you taxes business to death. He has not grown jobs because he does not work with business, he is not a leader . A true leader knows how to give and take like Reagan and Clinton. Obama tries to rule by executive order because of himself and his weak support I n congress, and with the American people. Look at Obama care just about any one can now get a waiver. Funny part is this is what the reps have been tring to do and he would not. Now a election is coming and guess what he is now doing it. again no back bone no leadership we should never again elect some one who was a 2 year senator that voted present 92 times again even as a senator he had no back bone . And by the way I thought this was a country that you could come to and work hard save up and have the American dream . Not the country you can come to and get free health care,food stamps, welfare, and vote even though you are illegal. Oh whoops I forgot Obama needed votes so he the king allowed it. It is tough to vote against some one who is paying for you to live . That I am sad to say is how Obama the socialist won .

          • Butch Darling

            NO sir! You are not only incorrect and inaccurate in your economic and political analysis, but also morally wrong.

            You and social failures like you are the reason we are in economic ennui. You don’t have the education to compete in the workplace; you lack the motivation to get that education and you depend on superstition and the sky pilot you call gawd to provide for you.

            Entropy5 – out

          • audi13760

            Funny how you liberals will not answer any questions that you know are wrong. First if I am wrong in my economic analysis , please explain how high unemployment is good . Also explain why I am political wrong when the country now gives president Obama a 41% approval rating. I own a business and have the drive to make it work in the worst times since the 1930′s so I must have the motivation the drive and education to make it work since you do not know me you have no right to even try to attack me. The social failures in this country are many including paying for illegals . and people to live off the government forever. Yes I have morals that is why I believe in god and so what if I do you liberal left wing nut jobs support muslims why not support all religions like the founders of this country thought was a good idea . By the way if I am wrong about god so what . But if you are wrong burn baby burn. How can you support a president that has lied over and over again. Let us take just the lies he sold to the liberals . I will close gitmo ,it is still open. If you like your Dr and your Insurance you can keep them , we and Obama found out that both of those were lies by the way he did not say that once he said it 72 times. I will produce jobs he has not I will fix main st , he has not. I will stop the off shoring of jobs the liberals and the unions really liked this one, truth more jobs have been offshored under Obama then any other president period. So I would have to say that you are wrong and do not have a open mind to look at what is really going on . This was the greatest country and strongest country on the earth until Obama. Now we have 3rd world dirt bag country’s like Syria pushing us around. Oh and by the way Romney said Russia would be our biggest problem and Obama said for him to give the 80′s back there policy. Now MSNBC an CNN both admit Obama was wrong . And last Obama was voted in the first time to bring America together . Truth he has divided it more then even George Bush did. so shut up until you have the backbone and morals to support and make this the greatest country in the world again, this will not happen until the liberals learn they must give and take and support America not try to ruin it and make it the next 3rd world country.

          • Butch Darling

          • LumberJock

            High unemployment drives down wages. That’s good for you and the rest of the republican’t traitors.
            You’re politically wrong when your business model is to drive down wages while driving up profits and driving down taxes and driving up dependence of your employees on a diminishing safety net.
            Off shoring of jobs is a function of the tax code produced under shrub and that the republi-can’t dominated House won’t repeal. Not his problem, but more specifically – he didn’t say what you accuse him of saying.
            We will be the greatest country in the world when voters like you are disenfranchised in favor of liberals.

    This discussion is awesome! I always find the best political comments here on a site about cars.

    I have a 2006 MB s-430 and it is the best car I have ever driven. I need to keep it for another 6 years, then I buy my retirement car…an AMG or Jaguar F type.

    • Michael Bacon

      I got the CLA 45 AMG as a pre-retirement gift. I love the car so far.

  • Jeff Wehmueller

    Guess there aren’t any “exciting cars” most of us can actually afford to buy.

    Is the new `Vette ragtop out yet? A friend of mine owns a wrecker service and got a call Friday night to pick up a car on a roll-on. It was a `Vette with a flat tire on its way to Lexington, KY. He hauled it to a tire store and GM wanted 2 new rears on it. In checking the VIN he found out that it had an X as a last digit. He checked out the number and found out that that number in particular does not exist! Not thinking at the time, he never took a picture of the car although he had plenty of opportunity to.

    That dog is on the list just to humor obama…

    Wow, only two posts till you get to the political hating- on a car website. We’re doomed.

    Audi’s wise purchase of Lamborghini gained them access to decades of secrets of engine design, use of alloys, and supercar performance propelling them to beat Bmw and Benz. They now are on par now with Maserati, Aston Martin and Jaguar. Bravo!

    I had 2 Vipers over the years. It is the last true raw American sports car. You must respect the snake. Mine had 510HP. I can’t even imagine 640 hp. At 510 the tires were not sticky enough to test this beast to its true potential. You need slicks for that on these cars.

  • SoftRose4You

    Wow! You forgot to mention the 2014 Mercedes Benz S Class. I think that car should also be mentioned in this group of cars. It is a beautiful car and ultra luxury. It also has options none of these cars have…..

      you mean the coupe? if so, I totally agree. gorgeous car.

  • Acielle Lacie

    Can’t believe the Maserati Ghibli got left off the list; starts at $66,000.

    Obama, Bush, whomever. Me and most of my friends made more money in 2013 than we did in 2012. A good businessperson or employee with skills won’t care who is in power stand in their way of achieving the American Dream. Like it was said in a previous post below, the Dem/Repub argument is all fakery. They both stink and anyone who bases their fortunes on which government lackey is in power are idiots.

    Ha ha…. Most of the voters are not even legitimate in the USA. Why is that?

  • audi13760

    Because you have to have a ID to drive to collect welfare ,foodstamps, and go to the bank. But the dems think that you must have a ID to vote that would be to hard for the illegals to do . BUt they can have free health care food stamps and in some states even drive and get a license . But to bring that license or ID to the voting booth would be to hard for them. I guess they do not buy beer or cigs either because you a ID for those as well.

  • audi13760

    Lumber jack
    You say that making a incorrect statement is not a lie .Well we are talking about a law that has the presidents name on . It is called Obama care. He either lied or had no clue what was in the law that has his name on it. Either way he is a liar or just has no clue what was in the law with his name on it. I do not think either choice makes him look good.

  • Rick in TX
