Toyota GR Supra, Lexus RC F, Motorsports, and Car Shows | #383
This week we trade in our high-horsepower dragsters for graceful, sleek rides that can take corners like no other. First up, JoshCAR Hollywood Car Consultant, Josh Hancock, chats about the Mercedes E 450 4MATIC Wagon, how SUVs killed the wagon market, and a car show dedicated to woodys. Then, Co-founder of Cartender and freelance automotive journalist for CarGurus, Boston Globe, and U.S. News & World Report, George Kennedy III, praises the 2019 Lexus RCF; is this the true successor to the Supra name? Changing gears, automotive journalist for Autoweek, Automobile Magazine, and Grassroots Motorsports, Steven Cole Smith, discusses the sale of Alan's Dodge Demon, his impending purchase of a 2020 Toyota GR Supra Launch Edition, and gives us a mid-August motorsports update. Closing out the show, Executive Publisher for Kelley Blue Book, Autotrader, and Dealer.com, Karl Brauer, shares about his 2004 Chevrolet Malibu, discusses Alan's catch and release car theory, and gears up for Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Tune in for a jam-packed week of reviews, automotive news, and car events.
