At a hearing today, Republicans in Congress made clear they want to drastically increase the number of semi-autonomous and autonomous cars tested on American roadways. It’s a proposal that should make driverless car developers giddy but could potentially pose safety risks if not done correctly.
The Jaguar XE is a pretty good, competitively priced compact sedan. Give it to Jag’s Special Vehicle Operations and you get a limited edition 600 horsepower compact sedan that costs a whopping $192,200.
If you really can’t stretch the $16,000 difference, Aston Martin has developed a second DB11 model with only a 4.0 liter V8 and a cheaper starting cost of just $198,995. Don’t feel bad, it’s still a thing of beauty.
The best Kinja Deals aren’t on the products you’ve been waiting months for a price drop on (unless you’re a gamer), they’re on products you didn’t know you needed, or didn’t even know existed.
If you’ve ever been moderately upset about something arbitrary—like, say, the lack of pop up headlights on modern automobiles—then prepare to be ever so slightly vindicated.
By now we’ve all heard the biggest news of 2017, fated in the heavens for eons before humanity’s earliest ancestors walked the savannahs: There’s an eclipse this August 21st, and it’s carving a path right through these great United States of America. GO GET IT NERDS.
Waymo, Google’s autonomous vehicle division, confirmed that it’s developing self-driving long-haul trucks earlier this month. Now we know what they look like.
If a lightweight and track-focused McLaren is what you want, then look away from this Lego 1:1 scale 720S because it is neither light nor would it hold up well in a crash. Indeed, it has no engine would be impossible to drive anyways.
The question of whether or not you can damage a car that asks for premium gas by using regular gas is one that never seems to die. I’ve seen this question tear families apart, with sobbing and recriminations—it’s not pretty. That’s why I reached out to an actual fuel systems engineer to get to the bottom of this…
Michelin is showing off a concept tire they’re calling VISION, even though it’s really a concept tweel, if we’re being technical here. Michelin also says the tire is “rechargeable,” whatever that means in this context, and also “breaks with the codes of a tire,” whatever the hell that means. Oh, and their promo video…
Airport security is a weird, weird thing. Leave your water and your regular-sized shampoo bottles at the door, but by all means, if you’ve got a big lobster that’s still alive, come on down. Bring that sucker right through security and onto your plane as a carry-on item or a checked bag, because claws aren’t…
In the midst of investigations into Russian interference in the United States presidential election, obstruction of justice, and fighter jet shootdowns, the White House suddenly announced last night that Syrian President Bashar Assad would “pay a heavy price” if it used chemical weapons again in Syria. And it’s been…
Two cars of a packed southbound A train jumped from the track and collided with a wall between 135th Street and 125th Street Tuesday morning. No deaths were reported, but over two dozen people sustained minor injuries.
The 2017 Mazda Miata is pretty much perfect, but it does feel like it’s missing something. Someone just gave their Miata that missing ingredient, the one feature the car needed to achieve supreme automotive excellence.
I’m talking about those things that are tall like an SUV, have big wheels like an SUV but are not SUVs. They are Sport Activity Coupes, or Sport Utility Coupes, whichever acronym you prefer. And if you thought there were just some dumb fad, they’re not. They’re catching on and people seem to love them enough to keep…
All of you muscle car fans out there can take another swig of Bud Heavy because there’s a new extra beefy Hellcat from Dodge: the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody. Don’t overthink the name. Dodge didn’t. This is like a Hellcat, but wider.
Other than host reactions and a short clip of what happened, we haven’t gotten much information on The Grand Tour host Richard Hammond’s huge, fiery crash during filming. But Hammond recently sat down to give the details, saying the crash “was like being in a tumble dryer full of bricks going down a hill.”
