I’m here in Shanghai, marveling at all the bewildering makes of cars (what’s the one with the starfish badge? The horse head? The one that looks like the Starfleet insignia? More on that soon!) and scrutinizing the Polestar 1 in more detail. Here are the biggest questions I have and the best answers I got from the…
I drive a lot of cars for work. So much so, that my personal car, a 2004 Honda Civic SiR—or just the Civic Si, if you’re American—is rotting away in press office parking lots covered in bird turds, fuel tank dried up, brakes all seized up. The poor thing just never gets driven. I’m an asshole for neglecting my Civic.
If you watch NASCAR frequently, you’re probably not fond of the fact that five of the 10 championship-deciding races are on 1.5-mile oval tracks. And if that’s the case, you were probably thrilled when Charlotte Motor Speedway announced it would run a road-oval layout for its championship race in 2018.
You never think you need a dash cam until you get into an accident, or see something really cool through your front windshield, so you really should consider setting one up before you miss something important.
Kobe Steel, the Japanese steelmaker at the center of an ongoing metals scandal, is facing scrutiny from the U.S. Department of Justice, the company said Tuesday, after admitting last week that it falsely labeled products supplied to over 500 companies across the world.
Mitsubishi Electric, which you know as the manufacturer of delightful household products like refrigerators and vacuum cleaners (and not to be mistaken for Mitsubishi Motors), made a car! Well, a concept car. And you know what? It looks aight.
The YouTube channel Car Question tests the all-wheel drive systems in various soft-roaders with a “diagonal test,” which involves taking each car up a ramp at an angle. Some of these car-based SUVs and minivans were clearly not designed to go off-road, but that just makes watching them flex out and spin their wheels…
As a person who likes cars and often does not like spending money, racing simulators are the relatively affordable gift that keeps on giving. You can wreck cars without paying to fix them, don’t have to go further than your computer to race, and, soon enough, will be able to jump a virtual rallycross car.
Also probably the only story you’ll see today about a Venturi, but who’s counting?
Driver’s Ed: the gateway through which every driver must pass in order to reach the holy land of driving. You hope that Driver’s Ed will pass by uneventfully, because nothing is worse than prolonging the process of getting your driver’s license.
It’s impossible to determine the craziest part of this figure-eight racing fight from Anderson Speedway in Indiana. It’s just a magical cornucopia of race car belligerence that must be appreciated in its entirety. It ends with one car on top of the other, one driver getting tased and both drivers involved getting…
Battery powered tools are great for most jobs, but sometimes, you need the concussive force and torque that only air compressors can provide. Today only, a bunch of air-powered impact tools (and a couple of battery powered ones) from Ingersoll Rand are marked down to all-time low prices in Amazon’s Gold Box. These…

Cars have a lot of important parts on them and in them. Some, like the radio or maybe one of your forward gears, you can live without. Others, like your tires, you really cannot. Please do not experiment with this hypothesis at home, or on a busy Houston highway.
It’s been 20 years since the Thrust SSC made its record-breaking speed run, becoming the only car to ever travel faster than the speed of sound. Yet as its driver explains, it wasn’t as simple as mashing the go-pedal and having its two enormous Rolls-Royce Spey turbofan engines blast him into the history books.
The most useful place for a voice-activated digital assistant isn’t your office, kitchen, or living room. It’s in your car, where your hands and eyes should be pre-occupied with driving. So Garmin put Amazon’s Alexa in a new bare-bones navigation device that will ensure you’ll never get lost, and never get lonely, on…
