Today we reached Peak Texas.
The premise is pretty simple– two people each hail one of the ride-sharing cars from the same spot and see how long it takes to get to their destination. But the comedians putting the “race” together have promised me there’s a twist. Something about finding the Backstreet Boys on the way?
In addition to visiting the Gigafactory site in Reno, we went on a tour of Tesla’s car factory in Fremont, Calif. this week. While there, we were told we weren’t allowed to take photos of certain things. Some of that was related to customer privacy rules, but some of it wasn’t. And one area we weren’t allowed to…
One Canadian Chrysler dealer had dream: to cram a 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 into a Ram 1500 pickup truck. Yes, that’s 707 horsepower sent to a solid rear axle on something that isn’t a drag car. I have just one word for this dealer: hero.
From the late 1950s until the late 1980s, scientists in both the United States and the Soviet Union were working on computer networking in one form or another. Why did the US succeed where the Russians failed? That’s the subject of a new book titled How Not to Network a Nation: The Uneasy History of the Soviet Internet
Elio Motors was founded in 2009 for an ambitious effort: bringing 3-wheeled, fully-enclosed trikes capable of achieving 84 miles per gallon to market for just $6,800. The company began taking “refundable reservation agreements” as much as $1,000 in 2013, for a debut on July 2014. Then the third quarter of 2015. Then…
I am a woman of simple tastes. Take a simple car, make it lighter, and add some purposeful looking aerodynamics and you have my attention. The new Lotus Elise Race 250 looks like all that is right with racecars—and Lotus says it’s their fastest racing Elise yet.
I never understood why Tesla insisted on calling its new battery factory a “Gigafactory.” It’s just a factory, after all, and we already have a word in English for that—“factory.” But then I saw it up close, and the enormity of it all is mind-boggling. When finished, it will be the largest factory in the entire world…
I’ve got one more day with this 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Dune convertible, and I thought that before a full review, you nice people might like some time with it live–well, as live as possible with current technology. You can’t really taste it, yet.
It’s sleek, it’s sculpted and it absolutely fulfills our favorite requirement in a car: sporty. Now it finally has a price. Starting in September, the new Infiniti Q60s will begin showing up in dealers around this country and toting a new list of prices to match.
If you want to get a perfect drift shot like the one above, it’s easy! You just need a few things.
This week was a landmark one for owners of the nearly 500,000 Volkswagen 2.0-liter diesel cars affected by the Dieselgate emissions fiasco, as U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer granted preliminary approval of VW’s settlement with regulators over the emissions-cheating vehicles. With that complete, VW has now rolled…
While some local government officials are trying to get Pokémon Go out of public spaces, the Mayor of Dusseldorf has taken the opposite approach, blocking off a bridge in the city so that players can catch pocket monsters in safety.
We’ve been waiting for a new Bristol for more than 10 years, and here it is today: the brand new Bristol Bullet speedster.
Last night America met Democratic vice presidential contender Tim Kaine. I wanted to see if he would be a worthy successor to the Gearhead-in-Chief, Vice President Joe Biden. He’s not Uncle Joe, but he is very much the goofy dad of our everyday motoring experiences. The following traits of our next potential VP may or…
