The Sleuth thinks you might be tempted after a close-up look at the Bollinger B1. This two-door off-roader looks like a 1950s-era Land Rover, only much plainer.

The Stealthy One is of the opinion that this General Motors’ truck and utility-vehicle division is contemplating the addition of an off-road tracks option for its full-size pickups, at least for one specific model.

The automaker has worked hard to match or overtake the class-leading F-150, but Ford’s aluminum-bodied hauler remains solidly in front.

It’s quite likely, according to The Sleuth’s sources. Apparently, Jaguar head of design Ian Callum has a design for the next-generation XK, ready to go.

The Sleuth believes that the company’s high output models will differ markedly from the current Impreza sedan-based design. The Viziv Performance concept car shown at the recent Tokyo Motor Show is stunning in its execution and will, in The Spymaster’s opinion, provide the design inspiration for the next WRX. The change would add significant desirability […]
