There may be a new Toyota Supra! There may always be a new Supra around, in fact, something we’ve been dreaming about ever since the last one rolled off the Motomachi line in 1998, a rumor with as much lasting power as the one of a mid-engined Corvette. Someday these two majestic creatures will arise from our fevered…
BMW will build a total of 200 “Competition Edition” M5 sedans, 100 black and 100 white, with a substantial power bump and a few tasteful decorative bits. Is it special enough to be a viable investment, or would you rather just take it out and just drive the tires off it?
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.
A 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL puts in some work at Laguna Seca.
To everyone who becomes apoplectic with rage when they heard the words “front-wheel-drive” applied to a BMW, stop it. Right now. This is something that we need here in the good ol’ U.S. of A. and here’s why.
The BMW i3 and i8 are some of the most innovative and exciting-looking cars in the past few years, I think. I’ve been a fan of their design since they were introduced, so when I read this Dwell article about how the man behind the design of those cars, Richard Kim, designed his own house, I was interested. There’s…
Princess Al Hawi of Abu Dhabi has taken delivery of a bespoke BMW i8, and it almost completely wipes away the clean, technical look of the normal car with a bright red paint scheme and plenty of aftermarket parts.
If anything can make a dark alleyway look artsy and inviting, it’s a shiny, clean BMW. Perhaps there are a few more things that make up that list, but the BMW isn’t a bad start.
The BMW M3 is a (virtually) universally appreciated car. Pretty, practical, fun to drive—there’s not much to dislike. If you want one today, the E36 body style of the 1990s tends to be the cheapest. But, the question becomes, how much “M3” is still left in a decent example after all that time?
Messing up on the notorious Nürburgring at high speeds is not easy to recover from. That’s what makes this “taxi” driver in a BMW 2-series MPV tackling some critical oversteer so damn impressive.
Since we do pretty much everything on the web nowadays – order food, tell people what terrible parents they are, masturbate – it only makes sense that we’ll use the familiar web browser to hack people’s cars. Thanks to a pretty significant vulnerability found by a security researcher on BMW’s ConnectedDrive web portal…
The BMW R nineT Scrambler will finally go on sale this fall in Germany, where it starts at $14,466. Hopefully other markets won’t be far behind– the retro on-road/off-road look is so hot right now it hurts.
Studies reveal that millions of Americans every month waste time at work on Jalopnik. So where do Jalopnik writers waste their time at work? Bring A Trailer, of course. And when I took a break to ogle this gorgeous 2002 BMW M5, ex-Jalop supremo Matt Hardigree showed me how I can do one better: a Euro-spec 1993 BMW M5…
Way back in 2008 BMW revealed an especially outlandish concept car called the GINA Light Visionary Model that traded metal body panels for a flexible lycra-like fabric wrapped around the vehicle. It wasn’t exactly pretty, which makes it harder to understand why Puma would use it as inspiration for a new shoe.
“Take it down before I get in trouble,” 23-year-old Darran Anderson reportedly commented on a video of him in his BMW cutting through traffic on New York’s Long Island Expressway. That didn’t really work out for him.
