President-elect Donald Trump woke up from a Big Mac-induced coma this morning to send off a tweet about Air Force One. Big Donny says the latest versions of the Air Force One being built by Boeing have become too expensive, and that the order should be canceled.
The former Soviet Bloc is dotted with the abandoned ruins of its once off-limits past, with huge former military installations now left to be reclaimed by nature and time. Clearly, the best way to explore the vast expanses of a Latvian missile base is in a car—sideways. Behold: the drift video to end all drift videos.
Whether we like it or not, winter is coming for many of us. (Before you start, Southern Californians, shut up.) And I’m hittin’ you fine people up for some good winter car tips.
Cars are increasingly able to drive themselves in various ways, but they’re not fully autonomous yet. And their various functions require a knowledgeable and attentive human behind the wheel. So why are so many car salespeople clueless when it comes to teaching drivers how to use those functions correctly?
On Sunday, I arrived in North Dakota and headed to Oceti Sakowin, one of the main camps where Native water protectors are peacefully blocking the planned path of the Dakota Access Pipeline. I did some interviews. The photographer accompanying me took photos. It was icy cold and very dark and once or twice I fell down…
I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but your currently-unused television now has a purpose, since some inspired kook gave a show to Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg. There’ll be plenty of places online where you can read all about this bold experiment in stunt casting, but I just want to focus on one thing: what’s that…
I don’t know what I feared more: that it would be too hard and I would fuck up, or that I would be too easy and I’d never want to stop. Unfortunately, for my safety and well-being, it was the latter.
I do believe names have a certain power to them. If I had a boat, I would name it things like “The Unsinkable,” “The Great Evader,” or even “No Crashing Today, Please.” Clearly, the lapse in the owner’s better judgment when they named the vessel “Nap Tyme” came back to bite them in the ass yesterday.
There are only a few things in this world a Porsche 919 can’t beat—like the Pope.
When the Mavic Pro arrived in our offices, the reaction was unanimous: holy shit, it’s small. The folding drone is roughly the size and weight of a hefty Italian sandwich. This compact form factor, I’d come to learn, is a blessing and a curse for the Mavic Pro—emphasis on the blessing.
I don’t think any car in 2016—as in, a car that you can actually buy, unlike certain others that shall remain nameless—debuted with as much hype as the new Ford Focus RS. It’s not every day America gets the kind of forbidden turbocharged Euro-hatch hotness that would have been unthinkable just a couple years ago. I…
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Jerry Seinfeld, comedian and friend of the site, is mostly famous for his Seinfeld TV show. But among car people, he’s lauded for his Porsche collection. He doesn’t just own them, he actually drives them. And back when the show was on the air, he was apparently risking it all just to drive like a nut around Los…

Last week we saw our first images of what we thought were billion-dollar Chinese auto startup WM Motor’s first cars, and quickly realized they were, in fact, photoshops of a Mitsubishi. Now, WM Motor denies that those renderings were its own.
Warm weather may seem a long way off, but it’ll be here before you know it, and you can be ready to take full advantage with Amazon’s big hammock deal.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
