What is interesting is how much of this story revolves around the timidity of MTV reporter Marty Beckerman and MTV in…
When he's not making electric cars, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk's other venture is trying to privatize spaceflight. And his company, SpaceX, took a big step in that direction this morning when they launched the Dragon capsule into orbit with the goal of bringing more than one ton of supplies and science experiments to…
Some of the greatest car ads of all time have nothing to do with big car companies and ad agencies. They can come from one dude, some Photoshop, and maybe a video camera.
For generations, hopelessly asocial men have bought cars in the hopes of attracting women. Jalopnik readers know that more often than not, the plan backfires in the harshest way.
Four-wheel drive. Everyone seems to have it these days and, frankly, it's getting a bit boring. Mercedes realizes that too. But unlike everyone else, they're here to make a difference. That's where the brand new G63 6x6 comes in.
This is an immaculate example of Mazda’s outstanding gullwinged, mid-engined mini car, the Autozam AZ-1. Buy it, you fools!
Back in 1994, Audi was the first mainstream car manufacturer to switch to aluminum from steel in order to save weight while improving rigidity. The original A8's frame weighed 548 pounds. The current one's weighs 509 pounds, and is composed of 13 different aluminum alloys, which makes it 40 percent lighter than if it…
Do you like Batman? Do you like Pagani Zondas? Who am I kidding, of course you do, you're a human. Now, one intrepid Argentinian has combined his love of both into one. Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, Zonda!

Ever wonder what goes through the head of a driver who is just a single lap away from winning the Daytona 500? Take a ride with Jimmie Johnson as he holds off Dale Earnhardt Jr. to win his second Daytona 500, rips off the nose of his car, and does burnouts in the infield of Daytona.
Introduced in late 1975 as the US member of GM’s global T-platform, the Chevy Chevette was for a time the lightest production car built in America. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Chevette is somewhat more hefty owing to its Buick mill, but will that addition ensure its price fits to a T?
The Mazda Miata has dominated the small, open top rear-drive market for nearly 25 years now. It's a personal favorite of mine as well as many on staff here. But the Toyobaru twins have been able to match it on the fun to drive scale. They just didn't have that open top flair.
