The British Royal Navy was conducting a test of one of its submarine-launched ballistic missiles last summer, when the damn ended up heading straight for the United States. Not the Russians. Not the Chinese. Not ISIS. But the tea and crumpet Brits almost hit us with a missile.
The talented filmmakers—or should that be, remakers— at Ghostlight recently reshot the 1987 Paul Verhoeven masterpiece, RoboCop. But since they didn’t have a million dollar Hollywood budget, they had to build all of the film’s props and practical effects themselves, including this impressive ED-209 costume.
If you were to ask me, I would say that the worst part about traveling is the actual traveling part. I hate flying. I hate airports and I mostly dislike planes. But if we want to go anywhere in a reasonably short amount of time, flying is the way to do it, I suppose.
Tesla is continuing to roll out its updated Autopilot software to Model S and Model X cars build since October, the company’s founder Elon Musk confirmed over the weekend, and that includes a speed-limited version of the Autosteer function.
Today’s Bluetooth-equipped cars handle hands-free phone calls pretty seamlessly, but things were a little different back in 1988.
The subject of whether or not to warm your car up in very cold weather has proven to be a far more contentious subject than I’d ever have imagined. Because of my radical warm-it-up-for-a-minute-or-so views, I’m no longer invited to some family holidays. But that’s okay, because finally someone has pointed a thermal…
Ah, Yankee Candle: The brand that goes from lovely smelling to headache-inducing faster than you can say “Fresh Balsam.” If you need to replenish your candle stash, take up to 40% off large jar and 2-wick candles during today’s Amazon Gold Box. But this is a one-day sale, so get your wax on before this burns out.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Last year at Tokyo Auto Salon, Lexus had a pretty large booth that mimicked some kind of Nordic dance club bar one might see in Oslo or Stockholm, all white and glass and steel, with flashing lights, dancers, and Lexus staffers in thin, crisp reflective suits. This year? Carbon fiber race cars. That’s it.
Thirty-seven years ago today, Honda brought to us a great and long, and woody, addition the Civic family with the 1980 Civic Country. With its extended hatch and its rolling rows of red, almost four decades later and it would still look perfect on the farm or the ranch.
We’ve all had to throw away leftovers or cuts of meat and cheese that spent a little too much time in the fridge or freezer, but vacuum sealing your foods can keep them safe from freezer burn pretty much indefinitely, and dramatically extend their shelf life everywhere else.
Sébastien Ogier, who is made of winning instead of flesh and bone like the rest of us, won the first round of the 2017 World Rally Championship at Rallye Monte-Carlo this weekend in the Ford Fiesta WRC. I doubt that will be the last time this happens.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
Early this morning, WikiLeaks tweeted and then deleted a strange message that appeared to be a mistake. But the bizarre tweet wasn’t about secret government documents or even a link to hardcore porn. It was something much weirder: A link to an ad for the Ford Raptor pickup truck.
Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe MG is about as elemental a car as you could find, lacking roll-up windows or top that doesn’t require getting out of the car to erect. Perhaps making up for that it has a Wankel engine. Let’s see if its price is pretty elementary too.
The Ferrari LaFerrari may be super low to the ground and more than just a little bit difficult to get into, but you don’t have to do that if you’re just looking at a photo—a great photo, too. Isn’t that nice?
