Some people, like our very own Kristen Lee, are troubled with a “quirk” that causes them to mistake cars for...not cars. Random household objects. Things without wheels. Or interiors. Or windows. When these “automobile misidentifiers” make these errors, they must be corrected.
Ask Jalopnik editors Michael Ballaban and Raphael Orlove to drop some hot blog fire and they’ll do it in an instant. With gusto. But ask them to become skid-plate racers in one day? They’ll need some experts to coax (or kick) them in the right direction. You’ll be able to see how it turns out this week on Car vs.…
There are two things the internet likes a lot (actually, there are far more than two things, but let’s stick to the program here): Chris Harris driving cars and a car called the 2017 Ford GT. So, here is a video Chris Harris driving the Ford GT.
I just got off the phone with David Kohn, a mechanic from Boone, North Carolina, who used a bunch of brilliant home-brew methods to turn a Cadillac Seville into a flatbed car-hauler. Here’s how he concocted this genius bit of automotive glory.
Last week, in Jefferson County, Texas, a Dodge Challenger Hellcat was allegedly stolen and then involved in a high-speed police chase. The whole thing played out in a very Vanishing Point kind of way.
I think most of us can agree it’s been a bad year. But for a lot of us it’s been even worse thanks to the series of hurricanes that hammered the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. The news has moved on to other things, but people in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico will be recovering from these storms for years. We at…
Eighteen engineering graduate students from Clemson University debuted a new Mini concept car, which they developed with help from the ArtCenter College of Design in California, at BMW’s U.S. manufacturing grounds in Greer, South Carolina on Saturday.

The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is more about style than speed. And while it can go off-road, it doesn’t really love to. But make no mistake—this is a brave car that manages to stand out in today’s bland, busy and boring flock of medium-sized crossovers.
Automotive proving grounds have all manner of delightful car torture tests that regular, non-industry folks salivate over. Rough roads! Steep inclines! Skidpads! Alpine courses! Pro drifter Fredric Aasbø finally did what we’ve all wanted to do at the UK’s Millbrook Proving Ground: drifted the Alpine Driving Course.
If there’s one noticeable sentiment emerging from Ford under the reign of newly-hired CEO Jim Hackett, it’s the company’s refreshing new public sentiment toward self-driving cars. The official line, lately, is: yes, this technology is Good and Will Happen, but it Will Take Time. More time than the thought leaders in…
A complete illustrated owner’s manual and user guide to the 2018 Jeep Wrangler leaked over the weekend on JL Wrangler Forums. While Jeep’s reps have declined to confirm its authenticity, there’s very little doubt that it’s the real deal. Here are the most interesting facts and functions we found in it.
If there’s one driver that has been missed in Formula One, it’s certainly 2009 world champion Jenson Button. Button isn’t done with racing yet, but won’t be making a full-time return to F1. Now he’s named two other series he won’t be trying in F1's place: Formula E and IndyCar, which “scares the shit” out of him.
Some newer gas station pumps have small TVs built into them that blast ads, or even worse, the news at full volume. Here’s how you can turn that sound off and pump gas in peace.
