I hope you enjoyed your break. I hope you spent quality time with the people you loved, basking in the feeling that maybe, just maybe, everything will be alright. I hope you savored that feeling—because it’s all going away soon. That’s because the third season of Jalopnik Video starts today.
A lot of people read Jalopnik. More than 8 million globally this month alone, in fact. They range from everyday car enthusiasts to people who clicked an errant Facebook link about sloths to auto industry professionals. Honda’s lawyers are demanding that we take down a set of comments from an apparent reader in the…
Brian Parme, Pramoda Ravi and Michael Pagano didn’t ask to be heroes.
Another Detroit Auto Show is upon us, and you know what that means: it’s time for you, the readers, to test your mettle against the driving gods of Jalopnik. Are you faster than we are? (Probably.) Come find out this weekend!
Here’s hoping 2016 won’t suck.
Is it starting to feel like winter yet? Our staff’s still in a post-Christmas haze, so we’re still running some evergreen classics from the archives all day—plus maybe a bit of new stuff. Back to your regularly-scheduled weekend programming tomorrow.
Good morning, and a very Merry Christmas to you from your favorite automotive website! (Jalopnik wishes you a Merry Christmas as well.)
Let me begin by saying I was hired at Jalopnik because I’m good at video production, not because I have some sort of Rain Man-esque knowledge of the minutiae of automotive history. We leave that to Jason and Raphael. Don’t get me wrong though, I love cars and I love driving! But this level of car-nerd-dom has led me…
Well ‘splitters, we’ve been at it for a full three months now. I made a bunch of ridiculous-ass claims when I first started about fixing motorcycle journalism and now you’ve gotten a taste of what life is like with me. How are we doing?
The close reader of Jalopnik may have noticed Patrick George has mostly been in charge since this summer and the result has been amazing stories, an expansion into new areas like motorcycles, and coverage you don’t get anywhere else. He’s now officially in charge as the site’s fifth Editor-in-Chief.
Jalopnik is now 11 years old, which means we’re old enough to play with giant Technic trucks. We’re celebrating our 11th birthday by lowering the price of Jalopnik’s Book of Car Facts and History Even Gearheads Don’t Know to $1.99 on
Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple iBooks, and Google Play. That’s cheaper that one issue…
It’s Wednesday, and we’re getting bored. We want to race cars, but unfortunately, we’re still locked in an office. But there is Another Way. We’re still going to race cars, we’re just going to do it virtually. We’re having a Forza 6 tournament, right here, and we want you to join in the fun.
I know you’re losing sleep at night just aching to find out when’s the next time we’ll drive a crazy drift car through Manhattan, see which of Doug DeMuro’s three button-down shirts he’s wearing this week, or wrench on an old Scout. The answer is not for a while!
HARK! A sound doth bellow across the horizon! Is it the glorious bellow of a PRV V6, wheezing out the back of a DeLorean? NAY! It is the call for writings. Your writings, specifically. Rather than having you scramble for ideas, we’re going to give you some of our own. And we’re paying.
It’s the greatest day of the year! The third annual Jalopnik Film Festival presented by Mazda starts today with a party and screening and continues through Saturday with a full day of screenings. Here’s everything you need to know if you’re going to either or, hopefully, both.
We’re having a big party in Los Angeles this Friday at Santa Monica Airport’s Barker Hangar to kickoff the Jalopnik Film Festival, which will include a chance to drive the new Miata. Because we ran out of spots so fast we just opened up some more. RSVP here for the rides and RSVP here for the party. [UPDATE: We just…
We’re showing Ronin as part of our Film Festival in Los Angeles this week (tickets still on sale here) and before we screen it we’re going to have a panel with automotive bon vivant Alex Roy, drifter Tony Angelo, stunt driver Sera Trimble, and hollywood carfinder Josh Hancock to talk about the film. It should be fun.
Our very own Matt Hardigree will be on Bloomberg talking about VW’s current woes at 2:05 Eastern. Wait, that’s like, right now! Watch it all here. It’s worth it for his suit, which I think he bought for a Mad Men viewing party.
