From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

Back in February, Renault subsidiary Alpine unleashed a concept and promised it would return to market. Now, we've got a whole video previewing the return of this midengine motorsports masterpiece.

Alpine uploaded a video to YouTube, showing off camouflaged versions of its first production car since the 1990s. The proportions look very similar to the Alpine Vision Concept from Feburary. It's likely to pack a turbocharged I4 mounted amidship, with a whole bunch of parts courtesy of its parent company, Renault. It should compete against the 718 Cayman.

It's unclear whether the new Alpine model will use a variation of the A110 badge that dominated the World Rally Championship in the 1970s, but our friends at Motor1 seem to think it will be called the A120. No matter what it's called, it's going to be awesome. The world needs more midengine cars.
