In Defense of the CUV (An Enthusiast Divided)

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who speak in sweeping generalizations, and those who don’t. Unfortunately, I seem to have just doomed myself to the former category, but I’m going to try to make up for that right now. There are a few choice industry terms thrown around these days that are sure to… » 8/28/15 1:16pm 48 minutes ago

Determined Maniac Thinks He Can Win A Tug-Of-War With A Tow Truck

A perverse part of me sort of admires this idiot. Firstly, because this guy seems to actually own a grape-soda-colored Honda Pilot, and secondly because you have to admire the power of rage-thinking when it can make a presumably mostly-rational human think they can win a tug-of-war with a tow truck and somehow all… » 8/28/15 1:07pm 57 minutes ago

Macklemore's Chariot Sets A New Insanity Standard For Music Video Vehicles

Macklemore’s “Downtown” track is apparently an amazing ode to mopeds. And the new music video for it, man, let’s just say I haven’t been this blown away by “cool vehicles set to song” since Cash Money Records put a New Beetle and a Jaguar S-Type in the same entourage. » 8/28/15 10:35am Today 10:35am

I'm At The Nürburgring And It's More Awesome Than I Could Have Ever Imagined

“That’s really the team that got me into sportscar racing,” I said at dinner, pointing at Allan McNish’s table behind me with my fork. Then, of course, I realize that holy crap, I’m pointing at the Audi LMP1 team with a chunk of dead cow, and that’s exactly how surreal and amazing a trip to the Nürburgring really is.

What the Heck Is a Road Diet?

You might have heard the term “road diet” which sounds like the dining habits of some asphalt-chomping ogre. And it kind of is! But what does it really mean? Here are four videos that explain exactly what transportation planners are doing when they turn space for cars into space for walkers and bikers—and why it’s… » 8/28/15 10:05am Today 10:05am

Here's How Ludicrously Fast A Space Probe Is

Your regular commercial airliner, like a Boeing 747 is fast. A super-spy jet like the SR-71 Blackbird is much faster than that, traveling at over three times the speed of sound. So how does a deep-space probe like New Horizons, which recently flew past Pluto, compare? Thanks to this animation, you can see it’s very,… » 8/28/15 9:12am Today 9:12am
