Porsche vs. Tim Hortons: The Definitive Comparo No One Asked For

Those of you who’ve been around this blog for quite some time know that I love donuts: both the tire smoke variety as well as the pastry. Look at this irresistable little pink-frosted donut from the 6 Hours of Nürburgring. Look, and weep. So, who does them better: Tim Hortons or Porsche?… » 8/29/15 8:41am Today 8:41am

Toyota's Le Mans Prototype Will Go Turbo For 2016

When I spoke with a Toyota representative earlier this week, he said that most of the World Endurance Championship team’s efforts are going into their 2016 car. The 2015 is off-pace, but 2016 holds some promise. Motorsport.com just revealed part of what’s going into that 2016 car: BOOOOOOOST! » 8/29/15 3:56am Today 3:56am

Porsche Junior Is My New Favorite Nürburgring Nordschleife Conquerer

What, you thought I was talking about a Porsche Junior driver? No, no. I love Carrera Cup as much as the next 911 fanatic, but think older. I don’t know if it’s the jet lag or what, but there’s nothing funnier in the world right now than Walter Röhrl setting a Nordschleife lap with the Porsche Junior tractor.

Paris Will Ban Cars for One Day

Most major cities now have their own versions of open streets events that temporarily transform streets into car-free freeways for the day. Some of these have gotten quite expansive: Each Sunday, Bogóta famously closes about 80 miles of streets. But Paris is hoping to best everyone next month by closing a large,… » 8/28/15 10:02pm Yesterday 10:02pm

The Bourne movies are one of the best spy-fi franchises out there, and the next entry returns with the best pieces intact.

Poland Is Pretty Convinced It Found A Buried Nazi Train, Maybe Full Of Gold

Two random guys said they’d found a long-lost Nazi train last week, buried underground at the end of World War II. Local legends said that one matching the description went missing in the closing days of the war, and it was full of plundered gold. It sounded crazy, but the Polish government said they might be onto… » 8/28/15 5:45pm Yesterday 5:45pm

My Plan To Make Motorcycle Journalism Not Suck Anymore

Last month, Jalopnik managing editor Patrick George announced that Jalopnik had finally come to its senses, acknowledging motorcycles are awesome, and that Lanesplitter is going to try to be the motorcycle site the world needs. This month, some idiot convinced them that in order to achieve this goal they needed to… » 8/28/15 5:32pm Yesterday 5:32pm

The 2016 Smart ForTwo Isn't Allowed To Be As Fun As It Could Be

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m really not the most objective person to be writing about the new 2016 Smart ForTwo. That’s not because of any loyalty to the company, but rather an innate fondness of the type of car: a rear-engined, small economy car. Decades ago, these were once everywhere, and now, in the U.S. at… » 8/28/15 4:45pm Yesterday 4:45pm
