I’m so sorry, but I’m a Cars truther now.

If there are two things every stroller lacks, it’s a $3,000 price tag and the ability to make a child look like an unfortunate castoff from Downton Abbey. Luckily for all of us, however, a company called D.Throne has created an obscenely over-the-top electric car for kids that you can justify as an essential baby…
User interface design is hard, but we’ve been getting better at it over the years to the point where even a thermostat is easy to use. Automakers, however, seem to have their heads in the sand, taking their design inspiration for their infotainment consoles from old Winamp skins instead of any type of modern interface.
One of the biggest perks of this job is interacting with our readers, who are always amazing. How amazing? This amazing: one of our readers, named CJ, went through a considerable amount of trouble to Cars-ize the cars of some of us writers!
You might think you’re a good driver. But you’ve got nothing on a nameless 8-year-old hero from Ohio. This past weekend he and his 4-year-old sister waited for their parents to fall asleep, stole their car, and then drove to McDonald’s to chow down on some McMeats.
A couple weeks ago, Rockstar added mesmerizing “props” that GTA Online players can use to create stunt races, and the coolest ones aren’t just flashy—they bend and break tracks in new ways. (Seizure warning!)
Many athletes enjoy an enormous platform, capable of reaching millions. This platform can be used for platitudes about working hard and competing, or, in the case of tennis player Nick Kyrgios, for selling a used car.
Everyone seems to think they’re a great driver but your scuffed bumper might disagree. How can we learn to improve our driving in the age of infinite distractions? Do you even need to own a car these days? We’re talking with Jalopnik writer Kristen Lee about cars in the city, safer driving, and virtues of manual…
Enigmatic entrepreneur Elon Musk has no shortage of hobbies: sometimes, he makes cars. Other times, he likes to do a space thing or play Martian overlord. But now, the 45-year-old billionaire is turning his attention to the arts, as evidenced by a series of cryptic drawings he created using Tesla’s new sketchpad…
The latest car added to GTA Online is the Infernus Classic, an expensive 80s-era Vice City vehicle that can now be driven around in modern-day Los Santos. One problem: the car is broken.
Last year, Rockstar released a free update that added impressive stunt races full of floating racetracks and large jumps. That update was so good, it became one of my favorite things to do in GTA Online. Fortunately, Rockstar has now added 15 wild new stunt races to the repertoire, and they’re excellent as well.
Mainly, how the hell does any of this work? And secondly, what does the Cars Pope have to say about all this?
A pop-up trunks shelf is handy for increasing your storage space and separating delicate items (like eggs or chips) from heavy ones that could damage them when shifting in the trunk, but not every car comes with a shelf. Here’s how you can make your own with just a few supplies and a little effort.
Recently, a paranoia has taken a hold of some GTA Online players, who are convinced that recent updates are forcing drivers to be more aggressive. It’s probably not true, but the idea has gotten many sharing potential evidence of that conspiracy theory.
Maybe first thing on a Tuesday morning isn’t the best time to melt your brain. But then again, since the week isn’t even half over yet, taking a ride on a psychedelic Hot Wheels track might actually be the perfect distraction to all the work you’d rather not be doing.
Building something as complex as a car is an expansive collaborative effort calling on people with diverse backgrounds. There is, of course, the engineers designing the actual mechanics, but there are also the aesthetic and tactile elements that affect how you experience the car, each carefully chosen by designers.
For almost 2 years, one of the most popular ways to earn money in GTA Online was to use an armored “Kuruma” car during the final part of a specific heist. Instead of riding motorcycles and dodging hundreds of police bullets, as the heist typically demanded, a crew could pile into an armored car and drive to safety.…
If society collapses at some point in the next four years—or even if you’re planning a low-budget road trip—this nifty Car Hammock turns your ride into a comfy place to sleep so you don’t have to resort to a night spent in an uninsulated tent, or apocalyptic abandoned factory.
Every kid knows that if you want your die-cast toy cars to make an impressive jump off a ramp, you need a lot of steep track to build up speed. But Nerf wants to change all that with a new line of blasters that simply fire tiny toy cars directly at a ramp, so you don’t need any track at all.
