Elon Musk awoke on Thursday with the intention of sending Twitter into a frenzy by declaring that he received “verbal govt approval” to build a Hyperloop in the densest part of the United States, between New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington D.C. This is dumb, it’s not how things work, and requires,…
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is heralding the Italian brand’s comeback to America by embracing its heritage: providing an amazing driving experience while managing to have failures on a regular basis. Owners are reporting a multitude of issues online, and it seems like every car that gets sent to a journalist has some type…
The last chance to preorder and save on Anker’s truly wireless earbuds, the simplest cold brew coffee maker, and the Philips Hue White starter kit lead off Thursday’s best deals.
Lotus, the hero of our story barely clinging to a branch over the edge of a tall waterfall, just announced a new (?) car, the Lotus Evora GT430. It’s like the Lotus Evora that debuted in 2009, only this one is not from 2009, it’s a real car made by the still-running car company that is not dead it would like to remind…
No one really likes Formula One’s halo, meant to prevent driver head injuries. Nine of the 10 teams voted against the halo as well, per sources who spoke with Autosport. It’s being pushed forward on safety grounds, regardless.
Brenden has been driving his Dodge Nitro for the past six years and it has treated him well through college. Now that he is about to enter the real world he needs something more adult. What car should he buy?
On Wednesday, Florida resident Jorge Jove clearly couldn’t stomach the sight of an AT&T work truck parked out front of his house. Naturally, police say, he retrieved a revolver and started shooting out the tires and engine.
These microfiber mitts are great for washing your car or dusting around the house, but they could also come in handy on Halloween for terrifying children as you hand out candy. They’re worth $6 either way, in my opinion.
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 before the Lord returns to judge the quick and the dead.
It’s time to dig out and update the ol’ “why wasn’t this available when I was a kid?!’ list because buried in the day one Comic-Con news dump was this fantastic drivable X-34 Landspeeder from Radio Flyer that lets a pair of kids zoom across the sands at a blistering five miles per hour.
As the New York City subway system hurdles toward complete destruction, state leaders are cooking up some creative solutions. You see, allocating emergency relief toward the trains would be too easy.
I don’t know why the Lamborghini Diablo had any kind of advertising. The car sells itself. It has the doors. It has the sound. It has the looks. It has a V12 large enough to crush a small home. And yet, advertise it Lamborghini did.
Try to keep it together this morning.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
Just like mama bear in the Goldilocks tale, today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe RX7 is just right—old enough to be a classic, but not too old to be a pain in the ass to drive. Let’s see if its price is fair to middling too.
This Amazon Gold Box is ostensibly meant as a back-to-school Thermos sale, but several items in there could appeal to adults who want to pack lunch for work.
In the highest levels of NASCAR, where pretty much every track is asphalt, being told to “race cleanly” usually just means “don’t wreck anybody if you can help it.” But when it’s time to run dirt, clean racing is something totally different—basically, bust out your nearest duster and get to it in the middle of the…
