Cars that Matter is all about cars that have captured people’s hearts. They are the special cars, and they come from every decade since the dawn of the Automotive Age. They might be from the Brass Era or today’s Battery Era. They have names like 911 or SL, Corvette or Countach, or simply M. All have fueled passion in the people who created them, owned them, raced them, or sometimes—with remorse—parted with them.

On Cars That Matter, we talk with designers, engineers, race-car drivers, market experts, historians, restorers and collectors about the brightest luminaries in the automotive universe. What connects our guests and our audience? Like ourselves, each has a love affair with the automobile. Or maybe many. For all of us, these cars are not merely brands, like toothpaste or a pair of tennis shoes. Each one bears a marque, with a crest or ornament atop its hood. And every one of them has a fascinating story to tell.

Hosted by Robert Ross

Since 1989, Robert Ross has been writing about art, design, audio, motorcycles, and especially cars—new and old. A lifelong enthusiast, Ross enjoys a few machines of his own—both contemporary and classic—but he especially values the people he’s met, and of course, the countless vehicles entrusted to him along the way. He has contributed stories to Robb Report magazine since 2001 and consults with companies in a diverse range of luxury segments. Ross is a native of Los Angeles, where he lives, works, and drives. A variety of interests beyond cars and bikes keep him busy, with collections that include tribal art, music, and lunatic-fringe audio gear. However, a passion for 15th century Old Master prints eclipses all others.
