By now, like most people on earth, you’ve probably seen Captain America: Civil War, a film where a simple misunderstanding leads to a gigantic fistfight at an airport. But what you may not have seen at that airport fight was one of the best movie Easter Eggs in a long time.
I got a suggestion recently from a reader that was brilliant and simple: find out what car Calvin’s dad, the hardworking everyman from the beloved comic strip Calvin & Hobbes, drove. I mean, we have a right to know what he drives, I think, since his son has been seen peeing on so many car windows. So let’s try and…
Last Thursday, when we were reeling from the death of Prince, I wrote a story about the actual car that inspired Prince’s song Little Red Corvette. I was wrong about the car. So is pretty much everyone else on the internet. How do I know? Because musician Lisa Coleman—yes, that would be Lisa from Wendy & Lisa—owned…
Writing about a fantasy world that includes exactly zero cars on an automotive site may be a little ridiculous, but for some reason I keep doing it. And with Game of Thrones coming back this Sunday, why should I stop? So let’s try this: if the important Great Houses in the upcoming season were translated into cars,…
If you’re like most of us, you’re doing all you can to make your life as similar to Vladimir Putin’s as possible: you’re riding on horseback shirtless, ordering people you don’t like to be poisoned, and having athletic, vigorous sex with bears. Now, you (and up to about 5,000 of your friends) can take that final step…
In our slider tool below, you see two almost identical Grand Prix White 1989 Porsche 911 Speedsters. One sold for $209,000, the other for $363,000 at the same auction. The only major difference between these rare 1980s wonders? Jerry Seinfeld.
Tomorrow, Disney will be releasing Zootopia, an animated movie that goes back to the most fundamental concept of animation: making animals talk and live like humans. Of course, to do this, those animals need cars, and Disney did this right: by hiring auto design icon J Mays to design their cars. I got to talk to him…
Perhaps you’ve already heard, but the American hero better known as P.W. Herman has his first actual new movie coming out since Big Top Pee-Wee back in 1988. Not too surprisingly, there looks to be a really interesting collection of cars in this new, Netflix-produced adventure.
Top Gear’s new American presenter got a 1984 Nissan pickup truck from his dad as a first car, but since then he’s been stepping up his game, going through a couple of Ferraris before settling for a very scary Porsche. He also finds rear-engined cars to be the fastest.
The BBC will announce multiple new additions to the Top Gear team soon enough, but as we wait for Chris Harris and Sabine Schmitz to confirm our suspicions—or not—let’s have a look at how big a gearhead Matt LeBlanc really is.
The mirror plated supercar is a quintessential part of Gulf Arab car culture, along with the Transformers Camry and the fetishistic application of negative camber. When applied by Britain’s eternal and chamaeleonic rock star David Bowie to a plain old Mini, including all its windows, it becomes something else entirely.
That beautiful and delightfully obscene Volkswagen Jetta from the original The Fast and the Furious, the one driven by “Jesse,” the guy who promised “overnight parts from Japan,”the one signed by Paul Walker (RIP), which is currently owned by Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz, is now up for auction. Get your…
Perhaps you’re familiar with the artwork of Scott Park. He takes famous cars from movies and TV shows and turns them into adorable cartoon prints. Now his stuff is back again, in animated form!
Dwayne Johnson posted this picture from the set of Ballers noting that he cannot fit inside this multimillion dollar LaFerrari hybrid hypercar. Is it that Mr. Johnson is too big? No. The Ferrari is certainly too small.
I believe I’ve made my position regarding one of the most important philosophical issues known to mankind, where the eyes of an anthropomorphized car should be, abundantly clear: the headlights. The eyes of a car-face are the headlights. This is the right answer, the just answer, the moral answer.
With sci-fi movies, it’s a given that almost everything will probably be out of the ordinary and completely irrational. But hey, that’s kind of the point, isn’t it? These ten sci-fi transportation technologies are straight-up out of this world.
The flying cars from Back to the Future Part II sound absolutely great, if you don’t think about them for even a microsecond. And that’s because when you think about the nature of the general populace flying things through the sky, it begins to get very scary, very quickly.
Toyota is milking all the marketing they can out of Back To The Future right now, including making a fake ad for the dealership in the movie. Corny, but cute, and oh my god is that a black 2016 Tacoma with KC lights and a roll bar!?
