I just put over 1,000 miles on a Cadillac ATS-V, driving in a spirited fashion (read: ripping burnouts) around Michigan’s upper peninsula, and maybe off-roading in the forest a little bit. I made the V work hard, but it just laughed at me and begged for more. And I finally answered a burning question we’ve had for…
There’s only one correct place to store your wallet: Your front pocket.

Don’t lie to me, you want an air cooled 911. Even if you say you don’t, you do. The only reason you would say that you don’t is that you’re bitter about not being able to afford it, or are tired of hearing about how fantastic they are. I know this because I have one. But I got in before the boom, and now I’m stuck…

SpaceX has been talking up its Martian travel plans for a while now, but we still don’t know how it intends to get (or survive) there. As of today, however, it’s cleared a major hurdle: the rocket engine it will use to get to the Red Planet just fired-up for the first time.
You never want to be in a situation where you need a solar and hand crank-powered weather radio with a flashlight and USB port for charging your phone, but when three different models are on sale in Amazon’s Gold Box, you probably should buy one just in case.
Last week we dealt with the bizarre news that Apple—which has reportedly been working on its own electric car—was in talks to buy McLaren. McLaren denied the chatter, and I think it’s because it was secretly working on this thing and it didn’t want Apple’s paws on it. Meet McLaren’s first electric car. It’s on the…
