Ultimate Future Machine: Chris Harris on the BMW i8

BMW's i8 is both a car and a preview of the marque's future. This is fitting, because everyone who sees the i8 assumes it is, in fact, from the future.

​This Electric Beetle Is A Masterpiece With A Price To Match

I've been on a resto-mod kick for the past few months, fantasizing about hopping-up a Volvo 122S, a vintage Mercedes, or maybe a Squareback.

The Scionslaught at SEMA continues! SEMA is supposed to be ridiculous and fun, so it's good to see Scion going all out with their concepts. The louvered FR-S is good, but it's not as metal as this badass Slayer-themed tC. Few things are as metal as this. » 10/30/14 6:33pm Yesterday 6:33pm
