The other weekend I found myself at a car show put on by Magnus Walker, with row after row of pristine Porsche 911s, all with engine bays so clean you could eat off of them. It is with those 911s in mind that I ask, which one of you is going to buy this crapheap widebody Porsche 928 for $4,000?
It seems like everyone is buying crossovers, but you, fine Jalopnik readers, aren’t a faceless member of the CUV-hungry hordes. You are a hot-blooded human being. You want a wagon. Something that handles like a sedan, but with enough room to really let your friends stretch out. And if you shop carefully, you can…
Whether you’re a serious hiker, play a lot of sports, or just want to stay properly hydrated at your desk job, today’s CamelBak sale on Amazon has your name on it.
It’s a question a child might ask, but not a childish question: why is it that only hatchbacks, wagons, and SUVs have wipers for their rear windows, when sedans with trunks almost never do? Like the old saying goes, the rain has no idea how you get luggage in your car. So why should one incredibly common type of car…
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, whether you know that they’re what you need to know or not.
The next-generation Ford Fiesta may not be coming to the United States because you didn’t buy enough of them. Apparently, the seventh generation Fiesta will be developed for Europe, the Middle East and some African countries where it’s actually selling well—but not us. Buy a Ford Fiesta ST while you still can?
Last year, Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII was moonlighting as a Louis Vuitton model. Now in 2017, she’s back with another gig. This time, she’s selling cars in China.
Fact: the only good crossover ever was the Volkswagen Golf Country!
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
Amazon’s taking $50 off the Echo today, which would be pretty interesting if not for the fact that they were $90 off a couple weeks ago for Prime Day.
If you look back on the cars we lost when GM killed Pontiac—including examples like today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe G6—do you ever wonder if perhaps they offed the wrong brand?
NASCAR wants its races to end under full-speed green flag conditions so badly that they instituted the overtime system to restart races after
big wrecks. Tonight’s Brickyard 400 took two overtime attempts before it
was ended with a crash, but it sure took officials a while to throw the last yellow flag.
The Brickyard 400 started five hours, 44 minutes ago. It’s still going on—an hour ago, there were just ten laps to go—because these dumb fuckers can’t stop wrecking their goddamned cars.
NASCAR’s top Cup Series was at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Brickyard 400 today, where Kurt Busch’s race came to a halt with a hard hit with only 10 laps let in the race. Holy crap, the view from Busch’s helmet is intense.
On July 7, 2017, there was a meetup of Mazda RX-7 owners in New York City. RX-7s on 7/7/17. When I visited Times Square earlier this year, all I got to see was a horse poop as it walked down Broadway. An “army” of RX-7s would have been much better.
The government of the UK said on Saturday all drones larger than 250 grams—slightly more than half a pound, for all you ignorant Americans—will need to be registered with the Department of Transport following a report by aviation authorities drones as small as 400 grams could damage helicopter windshields. Drone…
Christopher Nolan’s relentless World War II drama Dunkirk is in theaters this weekend, telling a fictional story of the very real British defeat against Nazi Germany in France and subsequent retreat from Europe at the start of the war. Here’s the history behind what you see, and what you don’t see in Dunkirk.
It’s been awhile since we’ve done one of these posts about your Cars And Coffee adventures, so let’s do one! Share stuff from your Cars And Coffee, Crapcans and Cappuccinos or whatever meet you’ve gone to recently—we just want to see some cars.
The man in question was Lamborghini’s test driver for 40 years. The car in question is a lovely maroon 1986 Lamborghini Countach QV, built for former Lamborghini CEO Patrick Mimran.
