This past weekend, Heather Heyer died after being struck by a Dodge Challenger while counterprotesting white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia. That same weekend, in an epic case of unfortunate timing, Dodge tweeted about its big drag racing event in Michigan, “Roadkill Nights,” which drew heavy criticism on…
A violent crash caught on a police officer’s dashcam in May 2016 shows the cop’s cruiser barreling into a Smart car at 104 mph, authorities say. And now the officer is facing trial over the incident.
While us normal people like to hang out and maybe sleep a bit after we shatter a bone, pro drivers tend to ask how quickly they can get back in the car they likely got injured in. For Sebastien Bourdais, who fractured his hip and pelvis in a huge Indianapolis 500 qualifying wreck, the answer was less than three months.
Call it a guilty pleasure if you must, but there is just something about the second-generation Dodge Ram that won’t let my subconscious rest.
One of my beefs with car culture—parts of it, at least, not all of it—is the way it emphasizes the biggest and the best. Especially in America, where horsepower and quarter mile times are king. Everything has to be SS or M or AMG or V, top shelf, for it to be any good. This is the wrong way to think.

It’s no secret that ride-hailing company Uber has been concerned about its competitors in the race to build autonomous cars. But text messages released as part of Uber’s ongoing litigation with Google’s self-driving car project, Waymo, show the company’s top execs toyed with the idea of surreptitiously going after the…
The F-14 Tomcat was a Cold War fighter first deployed in the 1970s. For over 30 years it served the US Navy with distinction, yet its greatest legacy is perhaps found not on the battlefield, but in the hearts of kids like me who grew up with certain cartoons, movies and video games.
The Tennessee Knockout is billed as the toughest extreme enduro race in America. For good reason. Riders manhandle their bikes up impossibly steep hills, through creeks and over logs and mossy boulders. All at breathtaking speeds. I was exhausted just watching.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know, so listen up.
Punch above your weight class today.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Camaro is V8 powered, manual equipped, and turbocharged, and just like Julie Andrews sang, those are a few of our favorite things. Let’s see if this super clean SS’s price can be added to that list.
Under normal circumstances, a Mazda RX-7 Evo Group B Works car would be absolutely incredible to drive or own. One goes up for sale next month, except it has a unique twist—it’s never once been driven or raced.
Most off-road vehicles have crawl ratios—extra gearing to increase forward thrust—between 30 and about 100. But the Mercedes Unimog, with its “Super Crawler” gear, has an absurd crawl ratio over 3000. That means two things: unstoppable crawling power, and a hilariously low top speed.
The Honda Prelude never enjoyed the prevalence or subsequent nostalgia that makes enthusiast-spec Civics and Acura Integras so desirable today. But it was a damn good car in the late ’90s, it’s a good car now, and as of this afternoon we have a solid yardstick for seeing what a really well-sorted one is actually worth.
While filming a segment of The Grand Tour in Switzerland in June, host Richard Hammond tumbled off of a hill climb course and the electric supercar he was in wound up in flames. The FIA and others later launched an investigation into the crash, and the findings left the hill climb’s organizers in all kinds of trouble.
Vinyl is the only worthwhile way to own music, but starting a record collection from zero can be a daunting to say the least. Do you just go buy your favorite album? Something classic? Something that lends itself well to analog sound? That’s for you to tell us, and your fellow readers this week.
In good news that has kept getting better and better, the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Coupe and Volante convertible will now also be joined by a Speedster and Shooting Brake. If you strike gold, don’t stop mining.
So, uh, how was your day today, fellow American citizen?
