Top Gear may have a giant studio audience (all wearing comfy shoes, we hope), and they may do some eye-popping, outrageous stunts, but if you're looking for serious auto industry updates, you'd do better tuning into the Fox Car Report. It's an in-depth, half-hour foray into the wild world of automotive news, and as an added bonus, folks from the High Gear Media team -- like our fearless leader, Marty Padgett -- are frequent guests.
In case you missed the most recent broadcast, we've embedded the video below. Marty joins colleagues Richard Pozluszny, Justin Berkowitz and host Gary Gastelu to discuss the Chevy Volt, the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee (the impetus for one of our favorite auto apps), the new Land Rover Evoque (unveiled with two tons of smoke and one Spice Girl), as well as Tesla Motors' upcoming IPO. And as if the embeddable, shareable clip below weren't enough tie-in to our social media mandate, we might remind you that Tesla founder Elon Musk was also a founder of Paypal, which helped John and Jane Does around the globe monetize their websites and made the world significantly more interactive. Hey, we know our beat.
