Matt Bubbers is a car critic and columnist for The Globe and Mail’s Drive section. He also writes for Sharp magazine and has contributed stories about cars, culture and the future of transportation to a variety of publications in Canada and the U.S.

Before joining the Globe, he studied history and journalism at Dalhousie University and worked as a reporter covering local motorsport for the Chronicle Herald newspaper in Halifax. Since then, he has driven just about every car there is, on roads, racetracks, frozen lakes and sand dunes all over the world. His story about tracing the route of the Targa Florio through Sicily was nominated for a National Magazine Award in 2013. He currently writes and produces videos about the slow extinction of the gasoline automobile and the ascendancy of alternative forms of personal transportation, as well as electric, shared and self-driving vehicles, which, he fears, may one day learn to write and put him out of a job.
