Faraday Future, the mysterious electric car startup that (for now, at least) seems to only have a lot of big names and big funding, but California wants to help it even more. So the state wants to give the company $12,725,000, in exchange for a promise to create 1,990 full-time jobs and an investment of over $300…
A hellish and desolate landscape of “freeways”—an ironic name, for they only serve to imprison you in an idling, air-conditioned bubble as life slowly passes you by.
“Anyone can aspire to be President of the United States, but few have any hope of becoming President of the Bohemian Club,” Richard Nixon reportedly once said. But for a kid growing up in Sonoma County, California near the Bohemian Grove, the club’s ultra-exclusive campground, getting a service job there was easy.
California’s high-speed train has just been delayed by three more years. The first leg of the state’s high-speed rail is now set to finish by 2025, not 2022 as planned. This could mean that Hyperloop—the Golden State’s other, even more futuristic transit plan—could beat the bullet train to the station.
The Hyperloop may prove to be a wondrous and radical technology that will change everything we know about travel. But there are several major challenges it needs to overcome, and those challenges suggest that Hyperloop might be better suited for transporting goods—not people.
The collection of muffler shops and strip clubs collectively known as “Fresno” is known for many things, but a healthy and active unicorn population is not one of them. That’s why it was so surprising that CHP officers spent three hours chasing a rogue unicorn in the area.
“It may take us a little longer than we said to do this” was the update Dan Richard, chairman of California’s high-speed rail project, gave state legislators yesterday. But the insane infrastructure plan could, shockingly, be less of a cash suck than expected.
A stretch of Vasquez Canyon Road in Santa Clarita has inexplicably lifted upwards over the course of just a few hours. Geologists are stumped.
Believe it or not, there was a time not that long ago when modifying a Porsche for any reason was considered a travesty. Keep in mind that this is at a time when most Porsches, 911s and 356s alike, were worth a fraction of what they are today. One of the men who changed the Porsche community’s perception of the…
Road access to the mudslides that trapped hundreds of cars in California last week was impossible, so a photographer strapped on a backpack and hiked 10 miles in to bring you these photos.
Hundreds of cars were stranded when a mudslide swamped a Southern California freeway last night in what felt like a chilling dress rehearsal for the El Niño on the way. The mudslide is a reminder that it’s not just heavy rain we need to worry about—heavy rain falling on the state’s parched ground will bring disaster.
Amidst all of the Dieselgate scandals, it’s great to know that some people aim to reduce future emissions by choosing to drive electric cars. They sure do know how to treat the environment.
Driverless cars are designed to cut down on traffic accidents, but that hasn’t stopped human-driven cars from crashing into them anyways.
One U.S. Marine was killed and 18 other service members were injured on Thursday when a vehicle rolled over during routine training at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, the Associated Press reports.
Water-bombing aircraft are pretty standard wildfire-fighting equipment. Helicopters that spew fire onto the forest? Not so much.
Dianna Bedwell, 68, was stranded in her car in a South California desert for two weeks in May. Yesterday she made her first public comments about the ordeal which she barely survived and killed her 79-year-old husband Cecil “Paul” Knutson.
A law that would finally make lane-splitting in explicitly legal in California has been put on the back burner because the lawmakers behind the bill aren’t exactly sure how they would make it work.
For six years California has given anyone that buys an electric vehicle in the state a $2,500 tax rebate. In theory, it’s a way to boost the adoption of zero emissions vehicles, and it has – primarily for people that can afford one. Now the rules have changed.
In 2012, California Assemblyman Mike Gatto introduced and passed a bill to bring back three vintage license plate designs if they could just collect 7,500 orders for each. The yellow-on-black style, originally issued from 1963 to ’69, made the cut and will start shipping this month.
