"We're here in Victory Lane, awaiting the race results. McQueen, that was quite a risky move, not taking tires."

Kori Turbowitz is a minor character in the Cars series that is a reporter for the Piston Cup. Kori's only appearance is in Cars, making three separate appearances throughout the film.

In Cars, Kori first appears at the Motor Speedway of the South, interviewing Lightning McQueen just before his team quits due to being fed up with his arrogance. She later appears when Mack arrives at the Los Angeles International Speedway, ready to report on McQueen's arrival, though she and the other press members quickly discover McQueen's disappearance, much to their confusion. She also appears towards the end of the film, thanking Doc Hudson for alerting them of Lightning's location.
