The Sixties were great enough with all the spaceships and supercars but did you know Boeing made a turbine-powered hydrofoil gunboat for the U.S. Navy? Tucumcari, good for 40 knots (46 mph) on the open water, served a combat tour in Vietnam before being transferred to Europe to become a demo boat.
With its highest horsepower and lowest suspension, the GT Speed is Bentley's most athletic production car. But what happens when you chop off the roof? Does it retain the qualities that make the Continental such a great ultra GT — its momentousness and poise — or is there just too much rarified air blowing into that…
The 100 Acre Wood Rally was this weekend, featuring the famous Cattle Guard jump. Here are all the cars of the rally taking their turn to get airborne over the freezing mud.
Saturday's crash in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Race at Daytona was truly awful. Now the Taiwanese animation has been released and it's more ridiculous than you could possibly imagine.
Over the last few weeks, Tesla has waged an interesting PR war after a New York Times test drive ended with a Model S on a flatbed. Now, days after an offer to bury the hatchet with the Times, Tesla CEO Elon Musk says that review cost his company $100 million. That hatchet must not have been buried very deep.
Normally, seeing a video'd junkyard crammed full of hulks of vintage Citroëns and Fiat 600s makes me want to hop on a plane and save each and every one of them like some soft-hearted kook at the animal shelter. That's generally not possible, but what these folks over at Lola Madrid are doing with these basket-case…
Last night, the wife and I made a trek our local Home Depot for a few things. As we exited with our home improvement goods, this... THING was parked in front of us.
We always moan about the beautiful, light, revvy cars that Europe never exports to the US. What about the cars that we don’t export over there?
Ever wondered what the name of your car means? Jalopnik readers are here to tell it’s probably just nonsense.
The Daytona 500 is NASCAR's Super Bowl and one of the most watched motorsports events of the year. And thanks to a combination of Saturday's huge crash and Danicamania, Sunday's race was the most watched Daytona 500 in seven years.
Chrysler issued a recall for 1,785 Chrysler 200/Dodge Avengers. Apparently, there's a possibility that a broken fuel tank control valve could cause... you guessed it, fiery death.
A lightweight, compact Ford truck? That's a big maybe. When our own Jason Torchinsky chatted with Ford's J Mays at the Detroit Auto Show last month, Mays pretty much told him not noway, not nohow. But word around the campfire is that Ford may be considering something more practical than the monstrous pickups which…
Audi has produced their 5,000,000th Quattro since the 1980 Ur-quattro. So go on and have a bottle of Hefeweizen!
I have a couple of automotive fetishes. One is for Aston Martins. The other is for hot rod wagons. Hey look, here's an Aston wagon. Today is a wonderful day.
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.
If you’re into numerology then you might find it interesting that the E34 was the last M5 to carry a 6 cylinder engine. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe 1991 has had its S38 replaced, and we’re going to see if its most important number - its price - makes this Five the one for you.
After giving us the Kuga (which is pretty much the same as America's Escape), Ford is sending another SUV to the old continent. The EcoSport is a compact aimed against competitors like the Opel Mokka (Buick Encore) or the Nissan Juke.
Over 25 years ago, one fine gentleman passed another fine gentleman a jar of Grey Poupon. But it seems that wasn't the whole story. Apparently, that old ad didn't actually end with "But of course."
