The Polaris Slingshot
Welcome to Found Around The District, where we highlight fascinating cars we find around a city where people are too busy fighting through traffic and hunting for parking to drive anything interesting: Washington, D.C.
In 1965, Ford started to get serious about Le Mans. Big 7 Liter NASCAR power AND bodywork to master this thing called aerodynamics.
Wait, didn't we just have an old-school BMW as our Weekend Wallpaper? We did, but after reader Christian Bouchez sent me this photo of his E30 Touring, I couldn't resist.
Aside from a few random sketches, we don't yet know what the neo-Enzo Ferrari F150 will look like yet. But artist Josiah LaColla has cooked up some renderings of his own, and they're pretty hot.
You know what's even better than a Ferrari? An old-school Ferrari, that's what.
If you don't follow the news in Europe, you may not know that the Old World is embroiled in a scandal where a growing amount of beef has been found to contain horsemeat in it. Never ones to eschew clever and edgy advertising, Mini has something to say about it too, and it's great.
“Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.” That ages-old slur against the news media was used quite a bit this week after the New York Times’ failed drive of the Tesla Model S, and Tesla’s subsequent response to it. People have a right to be skeptical of the Times’ drive: after all, media coverage of…
I've never liked Range Rovers, but not for their lack of capability, design, or build quailty. They have always been fantastic luxury off-roaders, ruined by their owners, whose first trip after leaving the dealership is to Platinum Motorsport, which immediately and without hesitation, ruins every single one. Can the…
I like my cars to be one of two things: Fast or interesting. Ideally, they should be both, but I'll settle for one or the other if I have to.
Police sirens roar through a warm summer night in rural Joplin, Missouri. Speeding after a 1936 hot rod, the first “Hemi” powered Joplin police car chases after a young man in a black ford. Racing through the country roads, the man’s heart beats fast. The cops gain ground on every straight, but the miscreant’s…
Getting tired of all the Tesla stories? I'm not. Getting away from the sideshow that is Elon Musk v. The NYT there's a much deeper truth about transportation and EVs buried in this story: driving a car from D.C. to Boston is a bad idea for most people. There's a much smarter, cheaper, and faster way to get from D.C.…
Friday must have been a slow day at New River Auto Mall in South Carolina. That's good news for us, though, because it gave the guys who work there time to put this ridiculous video together.
Sad breaking news this morning from the opening round of the Scottish Rally Championship where a 50-year-old spectator was killed after a rally car flew off the road and crashed into her, according to news reports.
It's the mid-1990s. Alfa Romeo is clinging to life in the U.S. They need people to buy their 164 sedan instead of some dumb old Honda or Saab. How are they gonna do it? With the kind of music you hear when you're on hold with your health insurance company.
I've spent the past four days in the French Alps, watching a World Champion Rally Raid driver accelerate towards a metal ramp in his MINI Countryman, before sailing skyward 360 degrees and landing on what can only be described as the world's biggest whoopee cushion.
CNNMoney's Peter Valdes-Dapena says he learned a lot of things on his road trip from D.C. to Boston in a Tesla Model S, including the massive amount of planning that goes into a long road trip in an electric vehicle. Oh, and he also encountered the same problems with his Model S we told you were plaguing owners — and…
Well, I suppose that explains why we hadn't seen it yet. Looks good as a pace car, honestly. I'm a fan of the VF, for sure, especially in SS and SSV trim. Wish it had a manual though...
When we showed you the 2014 Holden Commodore SS V, many of you wondered whether that car would have a stick shift when it was imported to America as the next Chevrolet SS. It turns out that if you want the manual, you're gonna have to go to Australia. Bummer.
Welcome to the Jalopnik Weekend Motorsports Roundup, where we let you know what's going on in the world of racing, where you can see it, and talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?
