To anyone who was worried: the American airline industry isn’t in as bad a shape as Donald Trump is making it out to be, who says that if he isn’t elected to be President, Boeing’s jobs are moving to China.
The new Tesla P100D can zipwhooshkapow to 60 miles an hour in just 2.5 seconds. That’s a staggering 0.5 seconds faster than the pitiful old P90D, which is reason enough to buy the new car. But is there another reason? Could the P100D be saving you money?
“It’s a tool, just like a 9/16th wrench or a wheel hammer,” Joshua Shaw, vintage IndyCar racer and restorer says of his 300,000-mile Chevy Suburban, an integral, reliable part of his work and life. A long-lasting ‘Burban is a piece of America, and it deserves a little praise.
When Ethan Castille watched a team of boaters rescue a woman and her dog from drowning in Louisiana floodwaters in a now-famous viral video, he knew the red Mazda Miata would be toast. He also knew he could help.
The Tesla Model S P90D set the standard for mass production cars with an official 0-60 mile an hour time of 2.7 seconds. Now Tesla’s keeping it 100, with the Tesla Model S P100D. It’ll do 0-60 in 2.5 seconds with a heavy foot, and with a light one it’ll do over 300 miles on a charge.
The speed of a current World Rally Championship car on a real, paved road (as we saw at this weekend’s Rally Germany) is staggering. Humbling, maybe, is a better word.
The U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center is using autonomous Cushman Shuttles—basically golf carts—to drive wounded soldiers to and from the hospital in an effort to get data on autonomobile technology, which the Army later intends to use on the battlefield, Automotive News reports.
If you know anything about cars, you probably salivate a little bit when you hear that something is made out of carbon fiber. It’s highly valued in aviation and automotive use for its lightness and strength. But, unlike aluminum, plastics and steel, it’s also very difficult to recycle. Until now!
What’s that noise the car’s making? It’s all the crap rolling around in your trunk. This $24 pop-up organizer will keep everything in its place, and it even comes with a free bonus car cooler, as well as a reflective warning triangle for roadside emergencies.
A trailer’s just a trailer, but the first clip for Kidnap casts Halle Berry as some kind of avenging-mom Steve McQueen, racing the wrong way on an exit ramp and bashing through SUVs while chasing a... crappy turquoise Mustang with no plates, which somehow can miraculously outrun her minivan—or can it?
John Krenik lives in St. Paul, Minn. and owns two collector cars that he keeps in his driveway. I’d like to tell you more about the cars, but I can’t because they’re both under tarps. Tarps that were used to “screen” the cars, per Minnesota law. Incredibly, this isn’t enough for Krenik’s neighbors or the state of…
If there’s one feature I miss from old cars, it’s the hood ornament.
As a current New York City resident, I’m constantly barraged with warnings of “Don’t fly out of Newark, it sucks” only to hear a week later “Don’t fly out of JFK, it sucks” and then usually “Don’t fly out of Laguardia, it sucks.” All my options are bad. But there are those of us near little regional hubs that have it…
You know that shocks are what control how your car rides, but what’s actually going on inside the tube of a high-performance off-road shock? I took some apart and put them back together (with some engineers who know what they’re doing) to find out.
Lest we mistake them for vaporware, autonomous racing series Roborace has a “DevBot” that looks suspiciously like a real car. It has a standardized safety cell for a driver and all. Only that cell isn’t there for what is likely that most terrifying joyride on the planet—it’s for testing and development.
It took 485 horsepower and tires that were way too skinny to make me realize something profound: I’m a bit of an asshole.
Some of you jamokes just can’t resist the siren song of those screechy tires, huh? Haven’t you seen enough YouTubes to know you shouldn’t smash the gas and saw your steering wheel... especially when you’re leaving a car show!
