In the Rearview: Love, War, and the Nazis

Hello, and welcome once again to In the Rearview, where we take a view toward the rear and bring you some of the top stories on The News Wheel in the past week.

Just Look at It All: Chevy has more diesel engine options than ever before

First up, because we are awesome, we have an exclusive pre-release viewing of The Bug: Life and Times of the People’s Car, as well as an interview with director Damon Ristau (whose name I most likely mispronounced in the video; I am sorry).

Then, we have a few other hints at reveals coming up at the next few auto shows, including an all-electric car from Chrysler (quite possibly a minivan, because what else does Chrysler have?), the “sportier” next-generation Toyota Camry, and two GM SUVs, the GMC Terrain and Chevy Traverse.

Following that, we take you to the world of racing video games, which mostly have been devoid of Porsches due to a deal that the company made with EA games back in 2000 (EA then went on to make Rock Band and a million Madden games). However, that deal will end after this year, so you may soon get to use your favorite Porsche on your next racing game.

Next, we at The News Wheel are romantics at heart, so we want to offer you some suggestions on how to pop the question to your car-loving love.

It’s About Taking Care: Here are three good reasons to have your car fixed at a dealer

On the other hand, who doesn’t enjoy a good struggle once in a while? With that in mind, we bring you a review of The 24 Hour War, which details the spectacular historical rivalry between Ford and Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Speaking of reviews, for those parents out there, our resident mom Cat Hiles had a look at 4Kids’ Backseat Car Organizer. I personally can’t tell you much about it, other than it has little sharkies on it.

Now, we get to take a break and enjoy looking at something beautiful, which is why we have assembled the five greatest Cadillac concepts of the past 20 years–weirdly, I kind of like the Ciel concept the best.

And finally, we love giving our readers a hand, which is why we have provided a pricing guide for all models and trims of Hyundai’s and Genesis’ vehicles.
