Managing Editor

Jake Lingeman grew up in Metro Detroit, falling in love with cars when he received his first mechanic’s tool kit and his first vehicle: a 1980 Ford F-150 with a three-on-the-tree manual transmission. He graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in communications, spent time at The Detroit News, Autoweek and has now found a home at CarBuzz. His personal fleet consists of a 1963 Pontiac StarChief that he has had for two decades, an upgraded 2014 Ford Mustang GT for taking to the track and he just purchased a cheap 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL for lazy Sunday drives. Not a mechanic by nature, but a tinker at heart, Jake will always try to fix something that’s broken before calling in the professionals, which usually happens. His favorite cars include the Nissan GT-R, Porsche 911 GT3 and the Ferrari 488 Pista, which might be the best car in the world, for what he wants: livable on the streets and a killer on the track. When not writing about, reading about or thinking about cars, Jake spends time on video games, liberal books and his family of four.
