TopSpeed Podcast Episode 015 LIVE- "Chewing a lot of Gumballs"

TopSpeed Podcast Episode 015 LIVE- "Chewing a lot of Gumballs"

Happy Thursday, welcome back to the TopSpeed Podcast.

This week’s show includes talks about Justin’s time with the BMW 435i, Mark’s experience with the Toyota Avalon, and I talk about the insanity that was the American leg of the Gumball 3000.

We continue the supercar talk with Mark’s take on the American trio of Viper, Corvette and Z/28, and you get to hear our thoughts on the crazy diesel powered BMW X6 M50d.

We also spend some talking about the tragic events surrounding the injury of comedian Tracy Morgan, and we talk about just what GM’s "Zora" trademark could mean for the future of Corvette.

After all that, we give our answers to your questions and no episode of the TopSpeed Podcast would be complete without Own, Drive, Burn. This week features a trio of classic muscle.

If there is something special you want to see us talk about, drop us an email at Podcast@TopSpeed.com, hit us up on Twitter @TopSpeedPodcast — we follow back – or leave us a comment below.

We want to send out an extra-special thank you to those of you who watched our shenanigans live earlier today. Have a safe weekend, and we will see you next Thursday.

I know the show is a few days early, but I have a special announcement to make. I don’t want to spoil anything, but it involves lots of horsepower and an epic road trip. You have to watch to see what the announcement is.

Beyond the special announcement, we are going to talk about Justin’s drive of the new 4-Series, the new McLaren P13 GT and the future of solar powered roads.

Mark is also going to regale us with tales of his time with the Chrysler Town & Country, and then we plan on discussing the changed coming to the 2015 Nissan Frontier and then we plan on covering the crazy Hyundai Veloster Midship Concept.

We may have another piece of news or two, and of course we will have viewer questions, and a round of Own, Drive, Burn.

TopSpeed Podcast Episode 011 - "Mark has complaints"

TopSpeed Podcast Episode 011 - "Mark has complaints"

Another Thursday afternoon means another TopSpeed.com Podcast. You can click play here for audio, or look after the jump for a FULL video podcast.

This week sees the return of Justin after his vacation, lots of cars with manual transmissions and a few automotive farewells.

Our weekly wheels for this week include the Honda Accord Touring from Justin and the Chevrolet Silverado High Country from Mark. I am a sad boy this week and have no new cars to talk about. Cue the sad trombone.

To make myself feel better, we cover a whole host of bad-ass car news. We start with the announcement of a manual transmission for the F-Type. We move to more fun cars with the Cayman GT4 spy shots, and the final edition of the Cadillac CTS-V. Cadillac gets some more love with the ELR-V and we finish with the BMW i8, the future of the M1 and round things out with a special edition Audi R8.

We wrap up the show with a trio of questions from you, our wonderful listeners, and an Own, Drive, Burn made entirely of Corvettes.

We had one final viewer question, but it was a long one, so we decided to tackle it as a special "after-show bonus" so feel free to stick around after the closing music to catch that. We discuss what you should buy if you are sitting on $30k and want a performance car.

As always, you can catch us on iTunes ( we would love it if you rated and gave us a review), drop us an email at Podcast@TopSpeed.com, find us on Twitter @TopSpeedPodcast or just hit up the comments. We read and respond to basically everything, so if you have feedback, let us know.

TopSpeed Podcast Episode 010 - "A Special Guest and Lots of Air Quotes"

TopSpeed Podcast Episode 010 - "A Special Guest and Lots of Air Quotes"

What comes after hump-day? The TopSpeed Podcast, of course!

Happy Thursday everybody, and welcome to EPISODE 010! of the TopSpeed Podcast. This week is special for a few reasons aside from our milestone number. Firstly, Justin is gone on vacation, so we brought in a special guest, Logan Utsman. Logan is an old friend and colleague of Mark and myself, and he is a proper hoon to boot. We hope you enjoy hearing him.

If you hated him, let us know that too. We will be sure to have him drawn and quartered for offending the masses.

Secondly we have a hybrid video podcast that has photos in it too. The first part is great news, the second part is less so. Thanks to some shaky internet, my recording PC dropped the video feed about halfway through. I filled the rest of the podcast with some photos from my personal portfolio to provide some visual entertainment. You can see the video after the break.

As for the show, our Weekly Wheels features a return of the Lexus ES 350, a look at the Audi A3 TDI, and I discuss my time flogging some new Cooper Tires on a track with the Ford Mustang and BMW 3 Series.

News coverage includes a thorough look at Chrysler’s big five-year plan, what it means for SRT, Dodge and Ferrari, plus the return of the Grand Wagoneer and the official announcement of the Maserati Alfieri. The BMW i3 also makes an appearance in our news segment.

Our Q/A segment features more automotive destruction, a short look at the best lime-green hatchbacks you can buy, the oldest cars we have driven, and we speculate on dream drag races.

As always, we finish with Own, Drive, Burn. This week we have a trio of Ferrari models.

Please let us know if you have any comments, questions or concerns. You can reach us in the comments below, on Twitter @TopSpeedPodcast or by email: Podcast@TopSpeed.com

We are also on iTunes. If you wanted to subscribe, rate or leave us a review we would really appreciate it.

See you next week you crazy kids.

Weekly Wheels: Lexus ES 350, Audi A3 TDI, BMW 328i
