The third season of the acclaimed thought-provoking British series that satirizes and examines our modern technology-marinated lives has just been released on Netflix. The first episode, Nosedive, is primarily a scathing take on social media, but it also describes one of the most plausibly grim futures for cars.
Remember how we could barely believe that a car company could emerge from the ether and start construction on a massive Nevada production facility? Guess what! Faraday Future’s $21 million behind on construction payments.
The most exciting thing about this year’s United States Grand Prix may have been what its huge turnout means for future races in America. But while the race may not have been a thriller, it was still a good time.
This colossally smokey burnout looks like a bad bout of road rage. For the first few seconds. Then the little yellow truck proceeds to roast its rear tires, using another car as a brake, until onlookers actually break the window and wake the driver up.
I just bought the cheapest Porsche 911 I could find, a manual 1999 Carrera with 243,000 miles. But naturally I had to know how much power it puts down, and that meant taking it to the absolute limit on the dyno. My inaugural test of this car starts with a bang, a roar, and some really odd facial expressions.
In-flight Wi-Fi is wonderful. The price to use it on the other hand, not so great. There are a few methods to get free access, but these two are relatively simple. The first requires only an iPhone. The second requires either a VPS or server you control. They both result in free, unlimited access for the whole flight.
Man, the Ford GT. People love this thing, and only a few lucky bastards will get the chance to buy one. There was some saltiness over the whole ordeal. And it’s kind of merited, too—because we just got a look at the exclusive brochure Ford sent to accepted customers, relaying the next steps of how they are getting…
Friday’s DDoS attack on Dyn’s domain name servers was unprecedented. The attack utilized a botnet made up of “internet of things” (IoT) devices (think: smart TVs, DVRs, and internet-connected cameras) to take down a major piece of internet infrastructure. The result? For most of Friday, people across the United States…
Yeah, so this is terrifying. Watch how fast a fuel leak in Ben Waddell’s Miata turns the car into a cage of fire.
Perhaps Taylor Swift saved Formula One in America after all. Or great weather did. Either way, this weekend’s United States Grand Prix in Austin was a smash success, the most attended race of the five times it’s been held.
How do you slay tires and hearts at the drift event? Bring a car that’s not your standard drift missile and leave a gargantuan trail of smoke and rubber behind you. I am in love with this ludicrously sideways blank white Porsche 944 Turbo.
Fisker is back with a car they are extremely adamant is not an updated version of the car that put them out of business years ago. Fisker’s old cars might have been flawed, but they were gorgeous. We all wanted them to be good. The new one is, hm, less so.
For some reason, a lot of you were super suspicious when I asked you about that time about the time you got away with it last week. I don’t know why! I’m not a cop. I thought we’d established that much by now. But here are your true stories of the times you skated repercussions for something crazy.
Last week I was in Berlin, avoiding being creepily spoon-fed at the Lynk & Co launch event, where I learned that new Volvo/Geely car brand Lynk & Co wants to make it easy for people to take your car from you. Now they have a video dramatizing how it’s supposed to go down.
Airbus’s new Silicon Valley-based technology and business innovation team, called A³ (“A-cubed”, isn’t that cute?) has got some wacky plans up its sleeve, releasing new details for an autonomous personal aircraft it plans to show off in 2017. That’s not a lot of time, especially once you hear all that A³ has planned…
