Texas’ Circuit of the Americas is painfully hot this time of year. Merely going outside for a while is enough to make you dehydrated. If you want to see how your race car performs in extreme conditions, this oppressive heat is perfect. Several Pirelli World Challenge teams were in Austin this week to do just that.
In the U.S., diesel engines are often only associated with huge work trucks, whereas elsewhere around the globe, you’ll find the technology in tiny city cars. That might make you wonder: how different are these engine types, anyhow? Here’s Car Throttle with a little refresher to help you out.
Anker’s beginning its drive into the automotive accessory space with an affordable new dash cam, and you can race over to Amazon to snag one for $67 with code 3RJ6NATH, the best price we’ve seen since our exclusive (and short-lived) $64 launch deal.
We seem to be in a golden age of automotive Lego, with Lego having deals with a number of carmakers, including Porsche, McLaren, Ford, Ferrari—it’s possible Lego has more licenses with automakers than some suppliers that make actual car parts. That wasn’t always the case, though. Decades ago, Lego’s car-based sets had…
It’s a Friday afternoon right and it’s hot as hell out. We’re taking it easy, just like you, and once again we’re blatantly stealing this idea from Deadspin. Come chill.

In case you ever doubted the greatness of these United States of America, all you need to do is look at one of America’s rowdiest creations holding its own on an autocross course. I’m talking, of course, about the noble Dodge Ram dually pickup truck.
Thanks to a big sales slump in the U.S., General Motors has a lot of unsold cars sitting around. The slump is extending factory shutdowns, putting jobs at risk, and, now, it’s threatening to take away the car that’s taking Cadillac back to the roots that we all longed for—the new CT6, which is supposed to be a shining…
Things felt like they were finally turning around for Aaron Woodrum in March 2015 after several months of unemployment. The 38-year-old had fallen behind on bills, causing his credit score to slip. But, thankfully, he’d secured a new job, bolstering his prospects. He just needed a car.
