Tesla Claims Model S Driving Logs Show NYT Reporter Worked To Kill Its…


As promised, Tesla CEO and founder Elon Musk has fired back against New York Times reporter John M. Broder's ill-fated test drive of the Model S, and he has done so with data logs from the car.

Erebus/SBR Finally Reveal Their Mercedes E63 AMG Bodied V8 Supercar

Well we've already seen Ford's FG Falcon (which, despite entirely new frames for the COTF generation, runs a body identical to  that used in 2012), Holden's VF Commondore (which is significantly changed from the VE entry run in 2012) and Kelly Racing's Nissan Altima (which is, like the Erebus Mercedes, a V8 Supercar… » 2/14/13 8:03am 2/14/13 8:03am

For $5,000, Martini & Honda, On The Rocks, Say What?

In Hollywood lingo, the Martini Shot is the final set up of the day after which you get your drunk on.

The Screwing Of IndyCar's Newest Female Driver


I remember it like yesterday. The email came through in January of last year from Katherine Legge, telling me she’d hooked up with this fabulous new sponsor, TrueCar, but I couldn’t say a word about it until, unless the team she was joining was named. So I kept my trap shut and waited until, finally, Katherine was… » 2/13/13 4:39pm 2/13/13 4:39pm

This Is How To Build The Brain Of A Million-Dollar Supercar

Here's how to build the computer brain of a Koenigsegg Agera R. Step one, hire a hardware and software engineer named Mattias. (Leave the last S on for "smart.") Step two, ? Step three, profit. Maybe that's an understatement. Let's see. » 2/13/13 4:03pm 2/13/13 4:03pm

Watch The BMW M135i Get Smoky And Slide-y On A Wet Day

Of all the current BMWs we don't get in the U.S., my favorite is the M135i. You know, the hatchback with rear-wheel-drive and a turbocharged straight six good for 315 horsepower.
