Tesla’s Model X crossover-egg has had a rough history with automatic doors—namely those fancy-but-flawed Falcon Wing doors for passengers. But the front doors also have an automatic opening feature, too, and they’re a bit bullish in the parking lot.
It would seem that for your next track day, illicit drag race against a Camaro or powerslide into a crowd of people outside Cars and Coffee, the 5.0-liter V8 Ford Mustang will be the best way to go.
Ed Loh is the editor-in-chief of Motor Trend.
Motor Trend wanted you to believe that they exclusively uncovered Apple’s mysterious car. They did not. Instead, what they have is an in-house render, a long and boring video, and a bad, desperate publicity stunt.
Motor Trend, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dodge, wasn’t the only publication to weigh in on SEMA’s wild-but-plausible allegations against the Environmental Protection Agency’s “clarifying” that it can regulate track car emissions.

So you have a Ford GT and you're out for a spin. You see the offices of Motor Trend and Hot Rod, among others. It's a bad place to crash if you don't want to be ashamed of yourself. This guy apparently didn't care about the shame.
The magazine currently known as Motor Trend has essentially become Car Comparison Test To Upset Or Please Fanboys Monthly. I'm sure they create other kinds of content, but they've taken a common magazine schtick and made it the core of what they do. You didn't learn enough from the ATS v. 3 Series test? That's ok,…
