​Not April Fool's: Lotus Rumored To Be Making An Evora-Based Crossover

Way back in 2006 Lotus decided to have some fun for April Fool's with the Load Lugga, an El Camino'd Elise with a tow hook and a tailgate. The joke was obvious. It was the complete antithesis of what Lotus stood for. We laughed then. We're not laughing now. » 12/19/14 11:00pm Yesterday 11:00pm

This Team Actually Wants To Build Elon Musk's Hyperloop

Could Elon Musk's Hyperloop tube system truly revolutionize mass transit? Maybe, if he had any inclination to do it.

This Is The Most Mind-Blowing F-4 Phantom Air Show Demo Of All Time

The F-4 Phantom II – otherwise known as the Bent Wing Wonder, Old Smokey, Rhino, Elephant, Double Ugly, and other nicknames not fit for print – flew in air shows all around the world for half a century and still does.

Get Lost In Europe's Largest Car Cemetery Hidden In The Swedish Woods

Bastnäs is an ancient Swedish ore field hidden deep in the forest that's famous for two things: the discovery of the chemical element Cerium in 1803, and the at least 1,000 cars that are hiding behind the trees there since the early fifties. » 12/19/14 7:30pm Yesterday 7:30pm

See How This RZR Was Built To Pull Off Impossible Off-Road Stunts

'Ford Shield' Looks Like A Next-Generation Hardcore Bedliner

This clip doesn't give us a lot of clues about what makes the "Built Ford Tough Shield" special, but based on the name and these shots my money's on new bedliner tech. Whether it ends up being "effective tool" or "sales gimmick" remains to be seen, but we'll have our eyes open. » 12/19/14 6:00pm Yesterday 6:00pm

This Rambler American Hot Rod Is Everything Right About Hot Rods

Like so many things that once started as unique, very personal creations, many Hot Rods have now become things that fit rigidly into certain categories of design and construction. There's strict rules for what is, say, a Rat Rod or what constitutes a 'true' T-Bucket. Tom Jennings' Rambler doesn't follow these rules,… » 12/19/14 5:30pm Yesterday 5:30pm

This Jag Pickup Will Haul Your Garbage Cans Full Of Foie Gras

So it's not too huge a leap to imagine that someone, somewhere considered the idea of a Jag truck.

The 2016 Ford Bronco Is Not Happening, Shut Up About It Already

Four Wheeler thought it'd be hilarious to photoshop the Ford Atlas concept into a small SUV and tell everybody: "2016 Ford Bronco!" It was funny, on April Fool's Day. But it keeps burbling back every time somebody's uncle posts it to Facebook with a casually racist, politically-charged caption. And it needs to stop. » 12/19/14 4:02pm Yesterday 4:02pm
