Eighteen people in Europe lived the ultimate dream last month, driving nine performance cars through France, Switzerland and Italy along 25 gorgeous mountain passes in only a span of five days. And luckily for those of us in need of our daily dose of car and mountain porn, the whole thing was caught on camera.
An early morning crash in Delaware between a Tesla Model S and an 18-wheeler left the latter in the front yard of a house, according to local station WPVI-TV. State police officials have since concluded the driver—and more importantly, systems—of the Model S were not at fault.
Let’s be honest with ourselves, this car—a Nissan 350Z with four light bars, a lift kit, a black steel front bumper, big tires, deeply tinted windows and a large wing—checks every box a LaCrosse-playing, protein shake-drinking, boat shoe-wearing bro might want to check. And yet, somehow, I like it, too.
That’s a massive seat-covering Rolex tarp at the Formula One German Grand Prix Yikes. If you can’t sell the seats, I guess you can always sell ad space.
Pass some of that over here, fellow Millennials.
Elon Musk said a lot of crazy things about the future of Tesla in his Master Plan Part Deux, things about solar panels and energy and expanding its vehicle lineup. But how serious was he about making the kind of mini-bus that Volkswagen has teased but never delivered on? Apparently very serious, and Elon Musk himself…
Because he just can’t get enough of cars during his normal work week, our man David Tracy is at the Cars and Coffee for the 38th Annual Concours d’Elegance of America in Plymouth, Mich. right now. This C&C happens before one of the biggest vintage car shows in the country, full of more than 300 dream rides. Join him…
Every year for almost a decade, the most anticipated gadget release has been Apple’s iPhone. It makes sense. In 2007, Apple completely changed the way we physically interact with our digital selves and went on to sell a billion iPhones across the world. Even though the iPhone is losing its luster with each passing…
Welcome to the Jalopnik Weekend Motorsports Roundup, where we let you know what’s going on in the world of racing, where you can see it, and where you can talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?
If you’re like me, you may have been unreasonably excited to see that Tesla was flaunting its new Model 3 in a bright shade of red when it invited journalists out to see it’s Gigafactory earlier this week. The same red Model 3 is at tonight’s public grand opening of the Gigafactory—too bad it’s not a real car.
With the vastness of which the United States military and its operations are spread out across the world, it helps to have giant aircraft like the C-17 Globemaster to move troops and equipment around.
Nash Motors would have been a century old today, and while I suspect that most modern gearheads probably don’t give Nash much thought, they really should. For a defunct car company, we still feel Nash’s influence a surprising amount, in ways that are pretty basic and fundamental to how cars are today. Let’s pretend…
A Florida man was arrested during an Orlando traffic stop because white flakes found in his car tested positive as crystal meth. It turns out, the flakes were just icing crumbs from Krispy Kreme donuts.
Many people were not thrilled when Porsche revealed that the updated 911 Carrera would be getting some turbo action because it makes the actual 911 Turbo (capital T) less special or something. Chris Harris is among that camp, and says if you’re going to bother with the finance papers, get the actual Turbo.
Have we got a car for you! A bona-fide classic! The best in Gallic ingenuity and Space-Age thriftiness! A funky little ride that gets great mileage and packs in all the charm! Yes, this beige 1980 Renault Le Car is a classic, and, some may argue, was always a classic. Never say that even the French, foisting this upon…
Accidents happen. Whether it’s Ford discovering Drift Mode while developing the Focus RS, or our long national nightmare that is a Donald Trump candidacy, they happen. The former is a happy accident.
This is probably not Audi’s next Tesla rival. But it looks so good that it simply must be shared with you, the reader, so that you may join me in wishing it into reality.
Last week, a heavily-modified Nissan GT-R spun off an airport runway in Pennsylvania doing 218 mph. Just watch the poor driver hold onto the wheel, as physics makes his steering and pedal inputs all but useless.
