Autoline After Hours Tonight with Peter Robinson, Wheels Magazine

This week while we're enjoying some beers on the set, our special guest will just be having his first cup of coffee. That's because Peter Robinson, contributing editor for Wheels magazine, will be Skyping in all the way from the land down under -- a difference of 14 hours. We'll be asking him about the latest automotive issues in Australia and find out what Aussie-derived platforms we can expect stateside. We'll also get into the news of the week including California's EV mandate that says 5.5% of all vehicles sold must be EVs by 2018. Also, CAR says that reaching the CAFE goal of 62 MPG will cost an additional $4,000 - $9,000. John McElroy is joined in studio by the one and only Autoextremist Peter De Lorenzo.

Autoline After Hours Tonight with Tim Colbeck, Saab Cars North America

This week we pose one very important question to Saab's U.S. COO, Tim Colbeck: how is this company going to survive? If the company is in fact manufacturing cars again, how are its dealers going to keep their heads above water while they wait for product to arrive in showrooms? And how is Saab going to get the message out to the world that it is alive and well? John McElroy and the Autoextremist, Peter De Lorenzo, will also talk about the news of the week including the announcement of Ford's three-cylinder EcoBoost engine. They'll also talk about why three pony cars outsold all hybrids in May, combined. All that and much more on this edition of Autoline After Hours.

Autoline After Hours Tonight with Jim McCraw, Auto Journalist

This week we're talking about one of the best ways to have fun wasting fuel as well as all the boring ways to save as much gas as we can in a crisis. First we'll be getting into some drag racing talk with the knowledgeable Jim McCraw. We'll talk about the emerging popularity of vintage drag racing, something called "Project 1320" and why the IRS is investigating the NHRA for fraud. In the meantime, a survey says most Americans want to get 62 miles per gallon. So why aren't hybrids that popular? While we're at it: why haven't CAFE regulations ever reduced our dependence on foreign oil? John McElroy is also joined in studio by the AutoextremistPeter De Lorenzo
