Shifting Lanes was started in May of 2013 after a brief conversation between 3 gear-head friends. All we cared about at the time was creating a sounding board for our sometimes incoherent ramblings on whatever automotive topic du jour popped into our brains that day. Lots of times it was just how cars were evolving or writing a review if we got the off chance to drive a friend’s car. Now, it’s much more. Shifting Lanes is becoming a name that’s synonymous with the ever shifting and changing culture of the new automotive landscape. We have the opportunity to bring news, unique opinions, and more to the always shifting and changing world of online media. With the dawn of the internet age came greater flexibility and tools to enhance automotive education and enthusiasm. This is what we’re all about as we provide engaging, easy to digest media on a daily basis to a broad audience of auto enthusiasts.
Cars mean freedom, adventure, love, and we’re here to remind people of that fact.
