This amphibious 1994 Hobby Car is the pre-production prototype of only 52 actual Hobby Cars built. It was insanely overpriced in its day—about the cost of two contemporary BMWs or Jaguars—but then again, it’s an amphibious, mid-engined, roofless, doorless cab-over slab of crazy that you can drive right into the water.…
So, it turns out you guys have pretty strong opinions about watches. As the sun sets on one of the most active Kinja Co-Op nomination rounds in history, four watches lived to see another day. Check out the finalists below, and don’t forget to vote before time runs out.
Today’s carbon fiber twin charged hybrid electric supercars offer the highest top speeds and the quickest acceleration runs in the history of the commercial automobile. And yet they may be the slowest cars ever sold.
When Tesla announced the Tesla Model S P100D yesterday, the big headline was that it’s the “quickest production car ever” with a claimed zero to 60 mph time of 2.5 seconds. But is it actually the quickest production car ever? As always, that depends on what you mean by “production.”
It’s one of those numbers that I’ve got in the back of my head for no reason: 2.75 seconds. That’s how long it takes a car dropped out of a plane to accelerate to 60 miles per hour. When I saw the hilarious new Tesla Model S P100D did 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds it was a reminder that Elon’s electric sedan was now faster…
This past weekend, David discovered what a very bad and broken manual transmission looks like on the inside. He now has a bunch of useless gears he should recycle, but he’s probably just going to keep them in a box somewhere for a really long time. Does anybody else do this?
You’d expect carbon fiber—the ultra light, hard-as-steel composite—to shatter or something when you crush it with a hydraulic press. Not. At. All.
Well, it happened. I received a car buying request so complicated, so odd in so many ways, that I was simply not able to help. I consider myself pretty good at this finding cars for people, but I’m accepting defeat on this one. So I’m turning the challenge over to you.
Yesterday, Tesla announced the absolutely berserk Model S P100D. Officially, it has a 0-60 mile an hour time of 2.5 (!) seconds, thus putting almost anything that isn’t a LaFerrari, a Porsche 918 or a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport to shame. And while we were all oohing and aahing over that, Tesla went and quietly raised…
I have few rules of airplane travel, but they are inviolable. Get to the airport ass-early, because having to wait around is worth the stress of worrying you won’t make it through security in time. Sit at the front of the plane so you can board later and get off faster. Only do carry-on if at all possible. And never,…
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Moto3 rider John McPhee got his first grand prix victory at last week’s Czech GP on a rain-soaked Brno Circuit. But he very nearly didn’t. You’ll see what I mean.

CSI isn’t just the name of a glitzy but ultimately insipid police procedural, it’s also that of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe BMW. Let’s see if this 635’s price means it can’t get even arrested in this town.
