We've Finally Found A Porsche With Purist Performance And Real Utility

There's so much right about the Porsche 928 GTS. A big old front-mounted V8, bulbously-sleek styling of a greasy pig that's aged well while remaining quintessentially 90's. The only way to improve it would be to turn it into a pickup truck, of course. Which some dude in Denmark has done for us. » 7/24/14 2:18pm 4 minutes ago

You Can Actually Buy a Flux Capacitor Car Charger Now

The folks at ThinkGeek put so much effort into their April Fool's Day prank products every year that often times they end up turning them into a reality.

What You Learn Driving The BMW M4 On A Public Road

From Car Buying: Jalopnik superstar Mike Spinelli drove the 2015 BMW M3 and M4 in their natural habitat. I am not a Jalopnik superstar, but I did get a chance to take an M4 Launch Edition out for a spin.

NYC Man Vandalizes Parked Cars, Can't Spell "Shitbag"

In today's edition of "two wrongs don't make a right" a man in Queens, NY vandalized two cars Tuesday night because he allegedly didn't like their parking skills. I don't like bad parking as much as the next guy but this is a little bit ridiculous. » 7/24/14 1:15pm Today 1:15pm

A Demolition Derby In Little Euro Shitboxes Is Even Scarier

Demolition derbies have always been one of those events I always associate with massive, Malaise-era Detroit land-yachts. And for good reason— they're great at them. Massive acreages of hood, huge battering-ram bumpers, overhangs the size of decks. Maybe that's why seeing tiny 2L and under Euro cars do it is so… » 7/24/14 1:00pm Today 1:00pm

Why Can't We Protect Commercial Planes From Attacks?

Last week's downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 over the disputed territory of Eastern Ukraine has set off worldwide outcries against the conflict, and calls to better defend commercial airlines from missile attack.

An Elite F-14 Flight Officer Explains Why The Tomcat Was So Influential

We sat at the end of the runway, our F-14's GE-110 motors humming, awaiting our clearance to begin what would be the last F-14 Demonstration ever. The Air Boss's voice crackled over the radio: "Tomcat Demo, you're cleared to five miles and 15k feet. The air show box is yours" At that very moment, I distinctly remember… » 7/24/14 12:05pm Today 12:05pm

The '732 Lbs Lighter' 2015 Ford F-150 V6 Was Weighed Against A 2014 V8

It is very impressive that a 2015 Ford F-150 Lariat four-door, one of the model's heavier setups, will only weigh 4,942 pounds. But it's important you know part of that "732 pound weight savings" came from the 2014 having a V8, while the 2015 had Ford's new 2.7 V6. » 7/24/14 11:47am Today 11:47am

Recently, I was asked why I don't post things to reflect the car-buying wallet of the extremely cash-strapped enthusiast. Since I'm not one to back down from a challenge, but am extremely lazy, I'll ask the ever-vigilant internet horde to find me the car on eBay with the most horsepower, for a whopping $1000 budget. » 7/24/14 10:36am Today 10:36am

From Lust to Love, an Age-Old Story of Automotive Romance

I'm a married man, in love with his wife. Before I was in love with her, though, I was in lust. That love-at-first-sight mumbo jumbo is a farce — it was the initial physical attraction that prompted the first date, which led to love, marriage, and a baby in a baby carriage. This formula is not exclusive to human… » 7/24/14 12:00pm Today 12:00pm
