Elon Musk Promises That Model S Auto Pilot Is 'Almost Ready'

Remember the Big D reveal way back in October of last year? Most people were so enamored with the dual-motor drivetrain and insane acceleration that the other news – Auto Pilot – fell off the radar.

Everyone Just Shut Up And Let This Man Keep His Plane In His Driveway

Maybe this says a lot about me, but most of the time when people use the term ‘eyesore,’ I either have no idea what they’re talking about, or it’s directed at me.

Stop Buying Cheap Used Sports Cars And Expecting Them To Be Perfect

In life, the curmudgeons and pessimists who think of themselves as realists will regurgitate the tired trope of “there’s no such thing as a free lunch.” While it is true that cheap steak may include some gristle, it could potentially be the best steak you’ve ever had.

Peter Egan on the Unironic Appeal of Ginormous American Land Yachts 

You know Peter Egan. You’ve been reading him for years. The man was always fiddling with a TR-3 or a Lotus Elan or a Morgan 4/4, and writing with a gallows-hued wit about fiddling with said tiny, fussy things.

Truly I Say To You Today That Bono Is An Asswipe
