The #Kony2012 hastag was huge last year thanks to a viral campaign to bring notorious African warlord and child army leader Joseph Kony to justice. But if you search that on Twitter now, you just get a bunch of joke tweets. And a promoted post from the Lincoln Motor Company. Wait, what?
Now that marijuana is legal for recreational use in Colorado and Washington State, authorities need some way of deciding when a person is too stoned to drive. Law enforcement has set legal limits, but are they too low? Washington TV station KIRO got a bunch of people high and set them loose on a police road course,…
According to Chief Designer Mike Coughlan, the FW35 got a new gearbox, rear suspension, nose, exhaust and floor design compared to last year's model, while it is also significantly lighter than the FW34 was. That should keep Maldonado happy.
In my first month with the Model S, my wife Jennie and our two kids have done what most car-owning NYC residents typically do: taken trips to New Jersey and Connecticut, parked in two feet of snow and slush and in various garages, driven it up and down between midtown, Chelsea Piers, and downtown on the streets and…
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?
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we'll provide the jams.
The term Rat, when applied to a car, implies a certain level of, how shall we say, rattiness that itself implies a focus on function over form. Despite its seller giving it that appellation, today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Buick Roadmaster is more a whale than a rat, but would paying its price make you batty?
Frank M. Rinderknecht's creative powerhouse joined forces with infotainment company Harman to create the perfect urban traffic system. The Micro Max electric vehicle is part of the revolutionary idea, using Cloud technology with real time navigation functions while balancing between the functions of personal and…
It was a great day for wealthy microcar afficionados who have longed for a Biscuter to liven up their walk-in humidor, but a sad day for those of us who would just love to see a crapload of microcars all in one place. That's because the greatest microcar musuem, the Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum is closing its doors…
I've been wondering about how I should feature Josh Clason's work on Jalopnik. I first came across his Depth of Speed series when it started in 2011, and after he produced two fantastic seasons under that umbrella, his returned with something even better: the Petrolicius videos.
Have you ever wanted to hear the specs of all the 2008 hybrid cars on sale with snappy music in the background? Who am I kidding, of course you have!
Two gauges, some Dymo, a medium-sized tach, a steering wheel with zero buttons: this is how simple the Porsche 917/30’s cockpit was. Then again, with 1,500 hp on tap, maybe it’s best not to multitask.
Thanks to modern safety advances, Top Fuel drag racing champion Antron Brown walked away from his car exploding at 300 miles per hour and crashing multiple times into concrete retaining barriers.
Driving while drowsy is incredibly dangerous, yet we never really think of it like distracted driving or drunk driving. This tattoo will make you think differently.
There are a few pieces of car engineering that are immediately evocative of particular time periods: dual-clutch transmissions bring to mind recent sports and super cars. Carburetors remind us of vintage racecars. Split-windows necessarily refer to pre-World War II family sedans. Or do they?
Driving is great. So is sex. Mixing the two is a bad plan. And where else but in Florida would an affectionate motorist couple step forward to serve as an example why.
One of the most striking things an American will notice on India's highways is how almost all their cargo seems to be transported by these lavishly decorated and slightly ramshackle large trucks. They're everywhere, often overloaded to twice their normal height, and barrelling down the road with a gleeful disregard…
If we take the headline gist of the NY Times article – Tesla Model S Bricks in travel from DC to Boston – then yes @TeslaRoadTrip and XanderWalker proved him wrong. If you really get into the article though, there are issues that XanderWalker barely touches on that are not disproven, and more so when you learn more…
