    First off, BIG NEWS! The Carmudgeon Show is getting its own channel thanks to the Hagerty Podcast Network. Visit https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCik2... to subscribe to the new channel. Now back to the last episode from ISSIMI.

    Who are Porsche’s customers? Old white guys who drive 911s? Yes. Soccer moms who drive Macans and Cayennes? Absolutely. Airbus? Also yes. Harley-Davidson? You bet. Volvo? Definitely. Lada? You guessed it. From almost the beginning, Porsche has been a company that does engineering work for hire. It keep excess engineering capacity busy which helps keep the lights on too. It also has made for some interesting collaborations, some of which are well-known, others are thoroughly obscure. In this episode, Jason Cammisa and Derek Tam-Scott discuss a number of these, ranging from the well-known like the Mercedes-Benz 500E and Audi RS2, to “under what rock did you look to find this?” like Linde forklifts, Airbus airliner cockpits, or the Lada Samara, the replacement of the 1200 which has been immortalized in Russian dashcam videos. So next time you accuse Porsche of selling out, check and make sure that they haven’t already designed a similar apparatus for someone else before, because chances are they probably have.

    Is the Model S Plaid in fact under-braked? Does the off-road competency of the Rivian R1T matter for its market success? In this episode, Jason Cammisa and Derek Tam-Scott discuss the questions of the month relating to two of the most interesting EVs currently on the market, but quickly redeem themselves by discussing decades-old gasoline powered cars including Jason’s upcoming Revelations episode on the C4 Corvette ZR1, and Derek’s BTS episodes on the Honda NSX Type-R and Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3.

    Car Week Special — The Carmudgeon Show — Ep. 45

    #ISSIMI #JasonCammmisa #DerekTamScott #CarmudgeonShow

    It’s car week! Or rather, it was car week when Jason and Derek recorded their first in-person Carmudgeon episode since before the pandemic. In this episode, they catch up on recent automotive happenings, as well as discussing Car Week and whether it’s worth making the pilgrimage to attend. Jason shares his impressions of both Derek’s Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce and the Ferrari 288 GTO that he drove, and Derek shares some observations about the future of market for collector and enthusiast cars, including which ones are likely to move in the future, and which ones whose best days may be behind them in terms of market interest. They discuss why a Jaguar D-Type is worth less than a McLaren F1 and this of course is logically followed by a discussion of BMW E30 vs 944  and then the VW ID4 because these two cannot stay on the same page for more than a few seconds.

    Behind the Scenes of the Latest Videos: M3, LFA, NSX Type-R — The Carmudgeon Show — Ep. 44

    Behind the Scenes of the Latest Videos: M3, LFA, NSX Type-R — The Carmudgeon Show — Ep. 44

    In the latest and thoroughly overdue episode of The Carmudgeon Show, the boys spend an hour or so discussing their latest video projects: Jason’s just released Icons episode about the G80 M3 (which necessitates revisiting the E30 M3 and E46 M3 and of course the W201 Mercedes 190E 2.3-16), and Derek’s upcoming BTS with DTS episodes about the Lexus LFA and NA1 Honda NSX-R. They also discuss the recent rally they attended, which was not without drama (one car flew off a cliff) and their preferred type of driving and how certain cars are and aren’t suited to that. On that topic, Jason and Derek compare notes about the first generation NSX; Jason isn’t a huge fan, while Derek described the NSX-R as one of the best drives he’s ever had. In fact, Jason took a cashier’s check to buy a US-market NSX and came home empty handed because he wasn’t enthusiastic enough about how it drove.

    Why We Love to Hate McLarens, Except the GOAT of Course (the F1) — The Carmudgeon Show — Ep. 43

    Why We Love to Hate McLarens, Except the GOAT of Course (the F1) — The Carmudgeon Show — Ep. 43

    It’s no secret that neither Jason nor Derek love contemporary McLarens, despite them being objectively quite good. In this episode, they discuss the reasons why they feel this way, and also how modern McLarens are like a variety of foods including mirepoix, Mexican food, and turkey soup. Incidentally the exact opposite of these reasons is why they are both so enthusiastic about the McLaren F1 and the upcoming T.50. Naturally, this content is preceded by and interlaced with requisite tangents about 911s, e-Golfs, and Mark I Volkswagens. Also of note is Derek mentioning not one but two rear-engined Porsches that he *doesn’t* like.

    Some Car Companies Are Just Bad Parents — The Carmudgeon Show — Ep. 42

    Some Car Companies Are Just Bad Parents — The Carmudgeon Show — Ep. 42

    Automotive alliances and buy-outs are commonplace. Sometimes they go well: BMW did a great job of bringing back Mini in the early 2000s. Sometimes they go poorly: BMW did a terrible job with Rover during the same period. But BMW isn’t the only marque that’s done this, in fact most of the big players do: Ford with Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover, and Volvo, GM with Saab, Chrysler with Lamborghini, Fiat with Lancia, Alfa Romeo, and Ferrari, Volkswagen with Lamborghini, Ducati, Bugatti, Bentley, the list goes on.

    In this episode, Jason and Derek discuss which marques are good parents, you know, the ones with happy, well-adjusted profitable and self-confident companylets, and which ones neglected, mismanaged, and otherwise stunted their charges with often tragic or fatal results.

Yep, it’s pretty good

It’s hard to find audio content about cars delivered by people that know about cars. There are plenty of people that talk about cars, but most don’t know or can’t articulate why the car is good or bad. Nice work fellas. Keep it up.
