Car and Driver is an American automotive enthusiast magazine. It was founded as Sports Cars Illustrated in 1955. In its early years, the magazine focused primarily on small, imported sports cars. In 1961, editor Karl Ludvigsen renamed the magazine Car and Driver to show a more general automotive focus. 2005 marked the 50th anniversary of Car and Driver.
The magazine is notable for its irreverent tone and habit of "telling it like it is," especially with regard to underperforming automobiles. The magazine also frequently delves into controversial issues, especially in regard to politics. The editorial slant of the magazine is decidedly pro-automobile.
