Twenty years ago, if you had said that Porsche would make an SUV, people would’ve laughed in your face and chased you out of the bar. Now, it’s 2017, Cayennes dot our streets and Suicide Squad became an Oscar-nominated film. Anything can happen, it seems! But what about the companies that haven’t made an SUV yet?
There’s not much I can give in the way of context for this video. The excited announcer is commentating in Italian, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the race was in Italy. There are no races worth filming happening in Italy right now, and also it’s winter, so this grainy footage is probably old.
In a conference call to discuss Tesla’s fourth-quarter results on Wednesday, the automaker’s co-founder, billionaire and aspirational Martian Elon Musk continued to push back on reports of an ongoing unionization effort at the company’s California factory. Musk said there’s “obviously quite a strong effort” by the UAW…
Ukraine’s military was already severely overmatched against the Russian-backed rebels it began fighting in the east back in 2014, and its drone forces have proven to be spectacularly subpar. At the beginning of the war, the Ukrainians used Soviet-era Tu-143 “Flight” drones. They were so ancient that they didn’t have…
Often abused in the car world is the world soul. It’s a band aid over faults in just about any review of an Italian car, and the meaning rarely extends past that. But there’s something deeper about it.
Many of us are fortunate to drive on a nice, open highway or even a winding back road for our daily commute. Unfortunately, most of us seem to be stuck in soul-crushing traffic every day. What is the ideal car for them?
Cars don’t have to make sense to everyone, but at some point they have to make sense to at least someone.
A casual look through car renting service Turo yields some pretty sweet and unusual stuff. Why rent a Nissan Sentra at the airport when you can rent some local enthusiast’s Porsche instead? It’s easy to get wrapped up in fantasies of having rare and cool cars to drive for a weekend, but how does the reality insurance…
Formula One cars have had several nose jobs over the years—some more Squidward-like than others. Others have kept it restrained to a subtle thumb at the end of the nosecone. But Mercedes? Mercedes’ teaser shots for tomorrow’s big 2017 Mercedes W08 F1 car unveiling show a refreshingly restrained schnoz.
The Russian government has been accused of trying to kill another pro-West politician. Again. The most recent almost-victim is Montenegro’s former president and prime minister Milo Đukanović. This latest allegation against the Kremlin is just one of many it has had to defend itself against over the years. Funny how…
Harrison Ford, carpenter, actor and plane man, was involved in a “potentially serious incident” last week when he landed on a taxiway instead of a runway at John Wayne Airport here in Orange County, flying right over a passenger jet. Now we have video to show how close he got.
Kong, a large inflatable gorilla, was stolen from a Texas car dealership this weekend. His handlers, Corpus Christi Fiat, are concerned that if he is not returned home he may pose a danger by offering HUGE SAVINGS to those that may not qualify for such discounts.
Runner—and food and lifestyle blogger Jane Seo—had her second-place finish in the Fort Lauderdale A1A Half Marathon disqualified on Sunday night. Two days after the race, a part-time marathon watchdog blogger revealed that Seo had cheated and cut 1.5 miles off her course while securing her 1:21:46 finish. Not only did…
My family and friends don’t understand why I buy rusty, dilapidated vehicles. “Why not purchase something that doesn’t look like it just came out of a junkyard?” they ask. The answer to that question is complex, and requires an examination of what it is that makes a car beautiful.
