Last year at Tokyo Auto Salon, Lexus had a pretty large booth that mimicked some kind of Nordic dance club bar one might see in Oslo or Stockholm, all white and glass and steel, with flashing lights, dancers, and Lexus staffers in thin, crisp reflective suits. This year? Carbon fiber race cars. That’s it.
Thirty-seven years ago today, Honda brought to us a great and long, and woody, addition the Civic family with the 1980 Civic Country. With its extended hatch and its rolling rows of red, almost four decades later and it would still look perfect on the farm or the ranch.
We’ve all had to throw away leftovers or cuts of meat and cheese that spent a little too much time in the fridge or freezer, but vacuum sealing your foods can keep them safe from freezer burn pretty much indefinitely, and dramatically extend their shelf life everywhere else.
Sébastien Ogier, who is made of winning instead of flesh and bone like the rest of us, won the first round of the 2017 World Rally Championship at Rallye Monte-Carlo this weekend in the Ford Fiesta WRC. I doubt that will be the last time this happens.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
Early this morning, WikiLeaks tweeted and then deleted a strange message that appeared to be a mistake. But the bizarre tweet wasn’t about secret government documents or even a link to hardcore porn. It was something much weirder: A link to an ad for the Ford Raptor pickup truck.
Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe MG is about as elemental a car as you could find, lacking roll-up windows or top that doesn’t require getting out of the car to erect. Perhaps making up for that it has a Wankel engine. Let’s see if its price is pretty elementary too.
The Ferrari LaFerrari may be super low to the ground and more than just a little bit difficult to get into, but you don’t have to do that if you’re just looking at a photo—a great photo, too. Isn’t that nice?
Up until Saturday night, Ken Roczen’s season in Monster Energy Supercross was going quite well. He won the first two events of the season, and went into the third race in Anaheim, California as the points leader ahead of the dominant defending champion Ryan Dungey. Then, this happened.
And so it begins, in this year of our orange overlord: a new season of motorsport beefs. Last night’s AMA Supercross race in Anaheim, California brought us the first episodes of anger in 2017, debuting what some overeager commentators have been waiting for from the edge of their seats: the fights, duh.
Sebastian Vettel may have to settle for third all too often against more dominant cars in Formula One, but give him an equal playing field and he can destroy the field—by himself. After a fellow German had to retire from team competition, Vettel single handedly won Sunday’s Race of Champions Nations Cup in Miami.
Likely by accident, and likely about 10 years later than he would have wanted, now un-retired Brazilian Formula One driver Felipe Massa discovered the best possible way to live out an F1 career: just keep retiring. If didn’t notice, the retirement gifts in F1 are a little better than your standard fruit basket.
Porsche already improved the Panamera from a fast and capable but awkwardly styled four-door into a stunning sedan. Of course, every sedan is automatically made better if it becomes a wagon, and the Panamera Sport Turismo “shooting brake” (wagon) is coming soon.
A gnarly Polaris Slingshot flip during Saturday’s Race of Champions left Formula One driver Pascal Wehrlein with enough “mild discomfort” that doctors advised him to sit out today’s Nations Cup rounds.
There’s a school of thought that says that perhaps we’d be safer drivers if we were more aware of the inherent dangers of driving, as opposed to being so insulated from it, as we tend to be today. If there’s a symbol of this way of thinking, it’d probably be the image of a steering wheel with a huge, scary spike…
The Chevrolet SS was always an odd choice for Chevy’s entry in the top division of NASCAR, seeing as nobody—seriously, almost nobody—in the U.S. bought the thing. But it was a nice enthusiast car to have in NASCAR, racing alongside the vanilla Fusions and Camrys of the world. Sadly, this will be its last year.
