Managing Editor

After spending several years at Road & Track and Car and Driver, Beth knows far more about the auto industry than she ever wanted to, including the nonsensical stuff, such as how BMW “solved” its displacement-based model-naming problem in the age of forced induction, why there’s a Turbo trim level for the Porsche Taycan EV, and how anyone thought that the Chevy SSR was a good idea. (Granted, she still struggles with the last one.) She moved away from the Motor City and magazines during the pandemic and now revises, writes, edits and fact-checks content for Telemetry from Colorado.
