The Swedes, geniuses that they are, have long led the world in conquering the moose test. But here’s one thing they don’t seem prepared for: the kangaroo test.
Fox Sports, a media group that presumably covers sports, will eliminate about 20 writing and editing positions in order to focus on video, reports Bloomberg. The reason? Actual sports reporting is hard.
French cars, love them or hate them, are very rarely boring. Renaults, even when they’re designed to be utilitarian or cheap, somehow manage to have a certain interesting flair: look at the Renault 4 or Dauphine or Twingo: all cheap, basic cars, all somehow charming in their own way. Not so with the Renault Alliance,…
Aston Martin has been teasing an electric version of its Rapide four-door sports car for years. Now, Aston’s original partner on the project—the deeply troubled LeEco—has backed out, but the RapidE will still get a limited production run of 155 cars set for sale in 2019.
As dangerous as nuclear weapons are, you’d think the management running them would prioritize safety. This is not the case at all.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may kill a regulation that ensures often-silent electric and hybrid cars make noise when driving at low speeds, a rule heavily supported by advocates for the disabled—and anyone who’s found themselves almost run over by a Prius.
It is very hard to find fault with the modern Chevrolet Corvette. It offers performance and capability that many six-figure exotics can’t even touch, and as an added bonus it’s no longer made of cardboard. So why do so few of them get driven?
Unable to resist the lure of a free Jeep Cherokee, I drove to Columbus, Ohio, this weekend to meet up with a totally random reader who—I was convinced—had plans to harvest my organs. Now I’ve returned from my trip, and while I didn’t have to endure horrifying surgery from a crackhead with a rusty steak knife, I also…
Generally, the ads in car magazines tend to be pretty predictable: cars, parts for cars, liquids you pour into various holes in cars, and those big rubber floor mats that want to rescue your pants. In an old 1968 issue of the British car magazine Autocar, though, is what I think may be the least-expected car-magazine…
A Southwest flight into Houston had to divert and land at another airport after a passenger reportedly tried to open an emergency exit mid-flight, according to the Dallas Morning News. Witnesses told the newspaper that she acted erratically before the flight, claiming that the government experimented on her.

Did you have a question about it, besides “Why is this movie about giant robots and explosions so boring?” Our patented Spoiler FAQ has all the answers you need and also probably several you didn’t.

When Stephan Winkelmann, ex-Lamborghini CEO and wearer of impeccable suits, assumed the head of Quattro GmbH early last year, I was incredibly excited. He would be, it seemed, the shot of drama and life-blood Audi so desperately needed in its lineup. But in a new interview, he appears to be most interested in... SUVs?…
Remember, back in the late ‘90s-early 2000s, the X-Files was on this big ‘black oil’ overarching storyline, where there was some weird alien black virus goop that would pour out of infected people’s eyes? Well, Rolls-Royce seems to have decided that this is just the thing to sell incredibly expensive cars.
Admittedly, giving someone the middle finger is somewhat losing your cool, but it’s nowhere near as bad as running into the guy you’re annoyed with. This one-bird salute from Formula E’s Nick Heidfeld is the smoothest middle finger I’ve seen in ages. Watch and learn.
As is currently en vogue for any company making a product that ends up in consumers’ hands, Oscar Mayer is expanding its Weinermobile fleet with a phallic flying drone that can (supposedly) drop a single hot dog on someone not too worried about what they’re eating. If Silicon Valley had its way, we’d only eat things…
The world’s most powerful production car, the nearly $3 million Bugatti Chiron, has been out for almost a year and a half now. But we still don’t know its top speed, and we won’t for a while—a Bugatti test driver said the closer the car gets to 300 mph, the less likely it is that modern tires can handle the pressure.
