2015 Mini Paceman: This Is It

The Mini Paceman just got a refresh, and just like the last one, I'm sure we'll find it to be absolutely detestable okay.

Here Are Some Of The Worst Styling Trends In Automotive Design

When I was but a wee lad, I dreamed that one day I would grow up to be a great automotive designer.

The Lauge Jensen Viking Is Henrik Fisker's New Gig

When we last heard from Henrik Fisker, famed designer of BMWs and Aston Martins and his namesake Fisker Karma, his namesake Fisker Karma was dead.

The Biggest Thing At The New York Auto Show Was Not A Car

The easiest way to determine "hype," whatever that is, for a product is to measure the size of its media scrum. New Mustang? Meh. How about a Mercedes? Borrrrring. But Honda just enthralled everybody with a 14-year old robot. » 4/19/14 12:00pm Yesterday 12:00pm

Holy Cow, Another Crazy Meteor Caught on Russian Dashcam

Last night, yet another eye-searing blue meteor screamed across the dark Russian sky. Lucky for us, Russia is the land of dashcams, meaning that yet again, we get a driver's seat view of the phenomenon. How do you say "wow" in Russian? » 4/19/14 11:31am Yesterday 11:31am
