GM's Tesla-Fighting 'Moon Shot' Is A 200-Mile… Sonic?

GM is building an EV. That's a given. And when former CEO Dan Akerson said the automaker assembled a team to investigate how Tesla could upend the auto industry, there was an assumption that GM's next full-fledged EV would compete with Tesla's volume sedan, the Model 3. Now comes word that it's a Sonic EV. » 7/24/14 6:55pm Today 6:55pm

SpaceX Can Now Land Rockets Like Old Sci-Fi Drawings Did

One of the biggest problems with rocket boosters is that you cram them full of amazing materials and engineering, and then ditch them after the first trip. It'd be like buying a Porsche 918, driving it to the coast, and then jumping out of it just before your let it drive off a pier. It's sort of crazy. SpaceX thinks » 7/24/14 3:58pm Today 3:58pm

The Citroen C-Elysee Is The Worst Car I've Ever Driven

I recently paid $904.61 in order to spend a week behind the wheel of the worst car I've ever driven. It was a highly interesting experience, and I'd surely do it again, provided that my only alternate form of transportation involves getting dragged around for a while by an angry gorilla. » 7/24/14 3:05pm Today 3:05pm

We've Finally Found A Porsche With Purist Performance And Real Utility

There's so much right about the Porsche 928 GTS. A big old front-mounted V8, bulbously-sleek styling of a greasy pig that's aged well while remaining quintessentially 90's. The only way to improve it would be to turn it into a pickup truck, of course. Which some dude in Denmark has done for us. » 7/24/14 2:18pm Today 2:18pm

You Can Actually Buy a Flux Capacitor Car Charger Now

The folks at ThinkGeek put so much effort into their April Fool's Day prank products every year that often times they end up turning them into a reality.

What You Learn Driving The BMW M4 On A Public Road

From Car Buying: Jalopnik superstar Mike Spinelli drove the 2015 BMW M3 and M4 in their natural habitat. I am not a Jalopnik superstar, but I did get a chance to take an M4 Launch Edition out for a spin.

From Lust to Love, an Age-Old Story of Automotive Romance

I'm a married man, in love with his wife. Before I was in love with her, though, I was in lust. That love-at-first-sight mumbo jumbo is a farce — it was the initial physical attraction that prompted the first date, which led to love, marriage, and a baby in a baby carriage. This formula is not exclusive to human… » 7/24/14 12:00pm Today 12:00pm
