These 3 GIFs Will Make You Want to Watch Ronin Again

We recently took a second (ok, 14th) look at the movie Ronin, and examined the specific cars used and action sequences seen in the film. Of course, what better way to illustrate our story than with animated .gifs and, well, things just took off from there. » 5/30/15 7:25pm 39 minutes ago

Why Taylor Swift Is A Better Spokesmodel For Wet 'N' Wild Than IndyCar

No, no. Not because Wet ‘N’ Wild makes nail polish on the cheap and Swift’s a fancy lady. Look at the track conditions at Belle Isle. Clearly, an opportunity to co-brand (read = “get more dinero”) this car was lost. Not only did Tony Kanaan wipe out in his Taylor Swiftmobile, but three other cars wiped out with him.

San Andreas without the special effects looks even more ridiculous

You know what happens in a real earthquake? A pause. And then slight confusion. And then frantically trying to remember what elementary school taught you on where you should go. And then panic because you don’t remember. You know what happens when you film an earthquake disaster movie such as San Andreas? Comedy. » 5/30/15 4:26pm Today 4:26pm

Want Bargain Exotic Design?

We recently postulated “Why is Good Design So Damn Expensive“? That spurred a ton of argument discussion about “tooling” and various other automotive manufacturing things that I know very little about. Apparently there are quite a few folks, even in the enthusiast community, who don’t think its possible to build a… » 5/30/15 4:04pm Today 4:04pm

United SportsCar's Detroit Race Ends With Chaotic Four-Car Pile-Up

Not one, but four cars at ate the wall outside the Belle Isle Grand Prix circuit’s Turn 1, and the second-place car spun at the last moment as well, throwing away his close battle for the win. Here’s how the last-lap insanity unfolded and why this was a pile-up that probably never should have happened in the first… » 5/30/15 3:20pm Today 3:20pm

It's Worth Getting Up Early For Super Car Sunday

Picked up a new lens for my camera this past week which motivated me to head on up to the weekly pissing contest in Woodland Hills, CA for the first time in a couple months. This week was the Ferrari/Maserati Marque event but every vehicle wearing Rosso Corsa or sporting a trident was upstaged by the spectacular… » 5/30/15 2:18pm Today 2:18pm

Detroit Pole Sitter Rebuilt Their Wrecked Audi In 2.5 Hours To Qualify

If United SportsCar had a “Heroic Fix” award, today’s polesitter would definitely be it. Dion von Moltke hydroplaned into the wall during a wet practice session, extensively damaging the front and rear of the Paul Miller Racing Audi. Per Sportscar365, they rebuilt the car in only two and a half hours to take pole in… » 5/30/15 1:48pm Today 1:48pm

This Navy Squadron's Cruise Video Includes A Terrifying Carrier Landing

U.S. Navy F/A-18E Super Hornet Squadron VFA-115 “Eagles” put together a pretty sweet WESTPAC cruise video. One clip in particular reminds us just how challenging landing a 25-ton, $50 million dollar fighter on a chunk of steel floating in the middle of the ocean can be, especially when visibility is near zero! » 5/30/15 1:21pm Today 1:21pm

Kokopelli - A Step Over The Line

As much as I like to think of myself as an overlander I’m not, not really. Most of my adventures are day trips or at most weekend trips and i’m hardly ever traveling from one place to the next or over great distance as much as I would like to. Being married with a young family has tempered my dreams from Ushuaia to… » 5/30/15 12:33pm Today 12:33pm

This Chevrolet May Not Be Clickbait, But It's Still Shockingly Average

The internet rewards extremes: The sports car that can hit 270 mph; the supercar that accelerates like a rifle bullet, the hot rod with two engines and four blowers. But what about the middle? Isn’t the highest exercise of restraint a superlative too? Can an average car be the best? » 5/30/15 11:58am Today 11:58am

The Incredible Calculations That Keep Google's Project Loon Aloft

When we last checked in on Project Loon—Google’s moonshot project to blanket the world with internet-packing weather balloons—one had just circumnavigated the globe in a very quick 22 days.
