It's just beyond boring now. I never buy car mags any more because they just aren't worth it. Now, considering they cost about the price of a coffee and I drive a car with a quarter of a million dollar price tag, that is a pretty sad statement. Where is the innovation in the format? Or even the content, for that matter? I could write a computer program in a few minutes that could spit out almost every supercar review I've read in the past 10 years. I think the writers sometimes probably even forget which car they were writing about, without checking the pictures.Chuckle ... Sweet! And so true, 6th.
Reviewing a car may be an art, but sprinkle in a measure of facts and fairness. I don't care if the reviewer was hung over that day, or prefers a manual, or thinks he's a poet, or a car salesman or an F1 star awaiting his talent scout. It's about real world fun and usefulness.
100% agree - writers are bought by the advertisers no desire to read a commercial.It's just beyond boring now. I never buy car mags any more because they just aren't worth it.
I don't mean pandering to journos with ride-alongs. I mean really going for a lap time somewhere, balls on fire.
EVO is pretty independent. They tend to call it straight and have done battle with Ferrari, Porsche etc when reviews have not been as glowing as hoped and warts revealed.100% agree - writers are bought by the advertisers no desire to read a commercial.
This guy isn't going to blow this opportunity - he too appears tired of bought driving impressions - couldn't ask for a better combination.
I don't really see how any magazine that has to get a manufacturer's permission to dyno the car can be described as independent.Depends on if Ferrari will let them.
