Christmas time is upon us, meaning its time to gather your friends and family around the Christmas tree that you recently broke while removing your door panel, and sing songs about how crappy a fastener that little plastic thing is.
Back in May, my colleague opened a blog by saying, “It seems like every car person in the world has at least a passing interest in the mechanical and stylistic choices that watches can bring.” He was wrong. I don’t understand what all the fuss is about.
Porsche has expanded its lineup of mid-engine two-seat sports cars with the new T trim for both Boxster and Cayman 718 body styles. Both models make use of the same 300 horsepower turbocharged flat four as the standard 718, but with a few more sport oriented chassis modifications to increase the fun quotient. For…
This 1989 Ferrari F40’s owner Jasbir Dhillon does a nice job recounting a quick rundown of where the car came from, and what it’s like to drive today. But the highlight of this video, as with all F40 videos, is the spectacular song that comes out of the engine.

The vehicle above is a Nissan Kicks. It’s not a very exciting car. It doesn’t have mind-bending horsepower. It’s got a CVT, and all the non-enjoyment that entails. The interior isn’t especially inspiring and it’s not really all that much to look at. But is it a bad car? Hell no.
There’s been a lot of coverage in the news lately about the results a group of researchers at NVIDIA have been getting with advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms that have been used to generate alarmingly naturalistic-looking human faces. The faces are very impressive and suggest a lot of complicated…
I often think about how nice it would look to put a Formula One car in the grand entryway to a large home, before remembering said car would probably cost more than the home itself. But a YouTuber recently found a cost-effective and lightweight way around that one: just build the car yourself, out of cardboard.
You often hear people say “there aren’t really bad cars any more” because even cheap cars from basic brands are generally decent and safe in 2018. That’s true, to an extent. But that doesn’t mean all cars are good, either. And we found plenty to bag on this year anyway.
Internet-classifieds car engineering takes the technological limitations that exist to real engineers and fires them straight into the sun. And if you’re not convinced of that after having seen the Cadillac snowmobile limo or the Cadillac Seville car hauler, then behold this amazing 1986 Mercury Sable camper, which…
By many accounts, the Tesla Model 3 is a great car. Sure, it’s needed some work on the body and on fit and finish, but there’s lots of cool engineering behind Tesla’s highest volume offering, including the “Superbottle,” an awesome packaging solution for the cooling system that contains a fun little easter egg.
If you happen to be in the market for a brand new Chevrolet Corvette this holiday season, grab one now because the 2019 models are about to get a price bump.
Rain was lashing down as we get out of the ramen spot, angry rain, the kind that make Manhattan an archipelago of hiding places. Doorways, awnings, anything to get out from under it. But I was darting into the street to grab a picture. It was a BMW Z4 M Coupe idling down East 10th Street, and I couldn’t stop myself.
For years we’ve been eagerly waiting to see what the next Land Rover Defender will look like. The last “new Defender” concept came out in 2011, and since then, the only Defenders we’ve seen have been prototype mules running around with scrunched Range Rover bodies. Until, I think, today.
Okay, we’ve already gone through what movies get wrong about cars (it’s a lot), so let’s flip the question around. What do movies actually get right about cars?
