Marc Carter grew up in Los Angeles listening to the sound of vintage Chevys and Fords being tweaked in his parents' garage. Five years ago he founded The Torque Report, the "go-to" destination for late and breaking news on the auto industry. When he's not obsessing over the newest electric car, he can be found hanging out with his pug, Baxter.
