You’re not stuck staring at a computer or your phone on New Year’s Eve, are you? I hope not. But if so, here’s some reading material.
Despite what my dentist keeps telling me, I’m human. Aside from having a bunch of hair and fingers, that means that I do, sometimes, make mistakes. And I’ve made plenty this year. So I want to make things right. Here’s my corrections for the ten biggest mistakes I’ve made this year:
This past year it felt like we drove damn near everything. From Subaru rally cars to the Bentley Mulsanne Speed. From a Power Wheels to a McLaren 650S. From an Audi TT, to an Audi TT, to an Audi TT a third time, because sometimes we all disagree and everyone is wrong, including ourselves. This is every single car we…
There comes a time in every person’s life when he takes stock of his last year and he remembers all the wonderful time he spent with family, and friends, and colleagues, and also how he crushed a wood-paneled Chrysler PT Cruiser with a giant sport-utility vehicle that looks like Big Bird.
Many, many car-related things and events and happenings and occurrences thinged, evented, happened, and occurred in 2015, and yet there’s still so very many that didn’t. Things that should have happened, yet, sometimes sadly, sometimes surprisingly, didn’t. Here’s the 10 things that should have happened this past…
It was easy for us to name the best cars we drove in 2015. Picking the worst ones, believe it or not, was a lot harder.
Not everything was all loud race cars and smiley Miatas in 2015.
Traffic, “uniques,” clicks, or whatever you want to call them, are all really dumb ways for measuring how good a story is. But very occasionally, incredible stories aren’t just brilliant, they’re also wildly popular. So with that in mind, these were the most popular stories we published in the past year.
Some automotive publications are happy bringing their audiences nothing but sleep-inducing reviews of press cars, dispatches from shrimp-filled junkets, repackaged press releases and bone dry industry news. At Jalopnik, we do things a little differently.
Looking through the cars Jalopnik has driven in 2015, I’m not sure there has been a better year for driving. At least, not in many decades.
My Uncle Nick and I don’t always get to talk. A shame, considering he’s one of the true car guys in my family. While on the phone with him late last night, I did the math—seven months since we last spoke. He asked me, “What’s new?” I started with, “So Jalopnik started a YouTube channel...and 90,000 subscribers later,…
America was built on speed. Hot, nasty, badass speed. (Other countries do it too, we’ve heard.) But sometimes the speed brings us some truly unexpected moments. To say that it was hard to narrow this list down to a top 30 was an understatement. However, that’s just what we’ve done: here are the 30 craziest, least…
Traffic isn't the best measure of quality, but it's a good measure of which weird stories you, our deeply troubled readership, were into this year. Here are the 25 biggest stories by unique visitors.
What was the greatest innovation in the car world this past year?
If everyone else jumped off a bridge, would I, too? Well, that depends—how sweet is the jump? Can I borrow the wagon I use for rallycross shenanigans? And, uh, what am I landing on? I can't swim, dude.
I'd argue 2013 has been a good year for car lovers, but there were a few things that could piss you off even after you've just witnessed what the latest generation supercars can do. These ten could be improved on for 2014.
Here at Jalopnik, we bring you stories from across the globe, from the Nürburgring to the Baja to Colombia and Sicily. But arguably no other place brought us (and you) as much joy as Florida, the largest hotbed of wackiness in these United States. Here are our favorites this year.
Looking over the list of our 100 most popular posts of 2012 I was pleased to see that generally, you liked what we liked. Most of our list of favorite longreads of the year show up here, along with the much shorter posts we also loved. Almost all of the posts are new ones, but the occasional old story or random one…
