This is The Morning Shift, our one-stop daily roundup of all the auto news that's actually important — all in one place at 9:00 AM. Or, you could spend all day waiting for other sites to parse it out to you one story at a time. Isn't your time more important?
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. And these logs appear, at least, to contradict some of what Broder wrote in his story.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we'll provide the jams.
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…
In Hollywood lingo, the Martini Shot is the final set up of the day after which you get your drunk on. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe 1982 Accord might be staring in a European flick because it’s painted in Martini livery, but will its price have you yelling action!?
... but I have lots to tell you. Stay tuned.
The Seat Leon SC is the Spanish idea of a VW Golf Coupe on sale in Europe with anything between 105 to 184 horses. Like?
Let's not beat around the proverbial shrubbery: I'm lucky enough to have an awesome job as Motorsport Communications Manager for a leading energy drink manufacturer and it would be pretty damn rude of me to keep this fun-fuelled life all to myself.
Predating the FF by 25 years, the 408 was conceived in 1987 in order to promote a nascent Ferrari-branded engineering consultancy, similar to long-running operations ran by Porsche and Lotus.
Every so often, you see a drier in the field who is hopelessly slower than his or her teammate, but always seems to get a seat for the next season. This person is what we call a pay driver.
For 2005, Honda started offering a hybrid version of the Accord with a V6 engine, a first in the segment.
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…
We've heard for a while that the McLaren P1 is going to be rocket fast. If new rumors are to be believed, it could be even faster than we originally thought. We're talking way faster than a GT3 racer fast.
I need to start this post with an apology. I'm sorry you're about to see this. You may want to send the kids into the other room; this might upset them.
When the McLaren F1 came out in 1992, standard equipment included a 627 horsepower BMW V12, air conditioning, electric windows and central locking, remote battery charging point with external charger, a flashlight in a tailored compartment next to the F1 Owner's Manual, a 10 CD Kenwood stereo system and a limited…
Y'all have heard, and have now seen, that we can repub posts from your personal Kinja sites to the front page of Jalopnik. It's a good thing for everyone and we're having a lot of fun with it thus far. Here are a few tips on how to get us to notice your fine work.
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. The headlights are kind of goofy, but the rest of car is so awesome that I'd let that slide.
Following the success of the Gymkhana series, which have racked up nearly 200 million total views on Youtube, DC Shoes is looking to promote their other brands in a similar fashion. The DC Moto TeamWorks line, originally released in 2007, is the next target of this video marketing and branding scheme, debuting the…
