I recently got to spend a few days back in Berlin, right by my old neighborhood, and I was surprised at how many American cars I saw there (more than zero) and how many were Chrysler Sebrings (most of them).
Earlier this month, 12 people were killed and dozens more were injured when an attacker drove a stolen truck through a crowded Christmas market in Berlin. If it hadn’t been for an automatic brake system mandated by European Union rules, however, last week’s tragedy could have been even worse.
Authorities in Berlin have confirmed that at least nine people have been killed after a truck ran into a Christmas market Monday evening, leaving at least 50 others injured, according to police and news reports.
Electronics thieves in Germany have decided to eschew the subtle approach for brute force. Thieves crashed a car into the Berlin Apple Store this morning and stole all sorts of fruit-branded electronics. And it's not the first time this has happened.
This is a 1981 Porsche 911, but it doesn't look like one. That's because it has been backdated — stripped, rebodied, and tuned into one of the most distinctive Porsches in the world.
You'd think that the head of design at Bugatti would have some kind of über complex hypercar as personal ride. Nope, it's a back-to-basics Porsche 911, one of the cleanest builds we've ever seen.
Christopher Kippenberger has brought a couple of our favorite things together: the cold, grey streets of Berlin, the growl of a Maserati V8, and some gorgeous film. But you can see good car porn anywhere. What makes this video unique is that it was filmed exclusively by drone.
Now here’s some parallel parking with a heavy political vibe. A Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, rendered gray and graceless by the German tuning company Hamann, parked on the East Berlin side of Checkpoint Charlie, the famous fortified hole which used to connect the two sides of Berlin across the Wall. Things have certainly…
Greetings, proud German owner of this first generation Mazda Miata. The sentiment is appreciated, but please note that the Miata is one of those rare Japanese cars based not on a German car but a British one.
Warplanes from both sides of the Cold War stand guard under a blanket of snow outside Berlin's Bundeswehr Air Force Museum. Jets, helicopters, all a reminder of a battle that never took place.
A word of advice: This is exactly what it says it is, and it's not for the faint of heart. It took place in Berlin, but we haven't determined when. We'll say it only once: This kind of sucks.
Clever German capitalists have repurposed the Trabant, the tiny German symbol of Eastern Block socialism, as a kitschy vehicle for Berlin's tourists. Mega-gallery of Trabi limos, convertibles, and coupes in colors the Stasi would never allow below the jump.

American cars of the 1970s were remarkable for undesirability due to a lumbering presence and lack of build quality. Nice Price or Crack Pipe wants you to know that it could have been much, much worse.
Dozens of luxury cars in Berlin have been torched since January by a group of disgruntled Germans. Mercedes, BMWs and Porsches have all been targets. Gallery of ze literally carpocalyptic destruction below.
Don't adjust your rods and cones, this Smart Fortwo really is actually glowing like dandruff particles in a blacklit nightclub. It's part of an art project headed by Katharina Sieverding, whose large-scale self-portraits from the early 1970s convinced artsy types that photographs could succeed as legitimate conceptual…
