Old Porsches got their legend status because they’re simple, they’re durable, and they’re great driving machines. But now that everyone has figured that out, everyone wants one. And now that everyone wants one, old Porsches have gotten crazy expensive. And now that they’re crazy expensive, people preserve them more…
The hybrid hypercar trio are almost identically powerful, desirable, and fast, but there’s one line that makes me want the LaFerrari over the McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder.
Driving a vintage SAAB 96 around Austin, Texas is great. It can also be a chore. But mostly it’s great. Here’s why:
You might not have known that you need a pair of driving gloves. This ad from our friends at Autodromo will change that.
Some of you may recall Raph’s article from yesterday where we showed you the shockingly pristine valvetrain of a 500,000 mile NYC Escape Hybrid Taxi. When I saw Raph on our way to the de-lousing booths, I asked him about it. Still groggy from the de-lousing fog, he just murmured “it’s the hybrid.” And that gave me an…
Before I can talk about the ordeal that was driving a 925lbs. 25hp car across the United States, let me give some back story about myself and this car, and why in desperation I decided to take it on a long, long drive some years ago.

The headline of this February 1932 Popular Science article, "USE CAR EXHAUST TO CLEAN CUSHIONS" at first glance seems as sensible as "USE HUMAN FECES TO CLEAN TEETH," but when you really see what's going on, you'll accept it's not a terrible idea. Just a lousy one.
Time-rending wormholes are a constant danger we all face. At any moment, we could all be sucked into a rift in the space-time continuum, and emerge anywhere. Even behind the wheel of a Holden whizzing down a crowded Australian highway in the 1970s. That's why you need to watch these videos to be prepared.

That creates nothing more than an endless navel-gazing echo chamber. But a chance encounter with a Ranchero-ized metallic green Lincoln Continental was a…
Warsaw’s Verva Street Racing festival has officially made the Polish capital the coolest car city in Central Europe, with 110 cars racing on a street circuit in the middle of town.
