Paul Ingrassia, Our Friend and Colleague

September 17, 2019 In the News

Everyone at Revs Institute is saddened to hear of Paul’s passing. Paul was an inspiration to our team with his keen understanding and observations of car culture and the auto industry.  Paul’s writing and editing prowess seemed to come so effortlessly and naturally, and after receiving a topic he could write a new piece for Revs almost instantly. His writing demonstrated not just his years of business and technical experience, but also his inner warmth and kindness.

Paul’s personal and family struggles with such a terrible disease only brought him closer to his friends at Revs. No matter the circumstances, Paul never hesitated to share with his colleagues, mentor young staff, or demonstrate how much he enjoyed his career and his love of cars and the news. While it was clear Paul had his battles and early triumphs with cancer, he always looked ahead with the utmost optimism.

We were all so fortunate to have known Paul. He will be deeply missed  and continue to be in our hearts and memories as a valued friend and colleague.

    Thanks for that fine tribute to Paul Ingrassia, Mark.

    I feel privileged to have met and spoken with Mr. Ingrassia at Revs two years ago. His reputation as an automotive journalist was unsurpassed. I hope that my own automotive writing can rise to, and maintain the standard he has set.

    I was long aware of Paul’s great research and writing about our business from his books, and came to know him better when he was leading the effort to launch the Collier blog. I really enjoyed my interactions with him. He’ll be hugely missed.
