Put on your blindingly white racing gloves and hop in the seat of the “most advanced” vehicle the world has ever seen. It’s the newest Chevrolet Corvette, and with its pop-up headlights and computer activated manual transmission, you’ve never felt anything like this before.
Welcome to the Jalopnik Weekend Motorsports Roundup, where we let you know what’s going on in the world of racing, where you can see it, and where you can talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?
Winter will be here before you know it (yeah, it’s not actually winter yet, who knew!), but you can fight back with a well-reviewed Snow Joe snow thrower, shovel, or ice scraper from this one-day Amazon sale.
Last summer, I drove 500 miles to pick up a Jeep that a reader had offered to give me for free. But instead of coming home with the extra iron, I fixed the college student’s Jeep and returned home happy to help. Lots of people read that article—heck, even Adam Savage from Mythbusters tweeted about it. But as pleasant…
What’s the most important thing to bring on an off-road adventure? Wrong. It’s a sense of humor. And, maybe, a willingness to have a plan B... through Z.
When you think about it, or look at it, or smell it, a fabric dish drying mat is a pretty gross idea, even the microfiber options. The OXO Silicone Drying Mat is available in three sizes (including one intended for stemware), stable, ribbed for better aeration (and your pleasure), rollable for storage, and when it…

Sometimes it’s just not worth dealing with sleazy salespeople trying your patience and hiding behind free stale doughnuts and bad coffee.
In good news for companies developing electric vehicles, and for interested consumers, the federal electric vehicle tax credit will not be repealed in the Republican tax bill going to a vote next week.
A friendly reminder that we only have 10 days left until Christmas, so your gift-buying days are down to the single digits when you account for shipping time. We see a lot of great deals every day, but these were our 10 favorites from Friday.
There’s no shame in faking it ‘til you’re making it, and what better way to fake it than by driving a genuinely nice and enjoyable ride. This is good for self confidence, impressing a date, impressing your friends, impressing your parents, and possibly most importantly, impressing your colleagues and superiors.
If you had to imagine the ideal lineup for a car company, I suspect that most of you would come up with something like this: a tiny three-wheeled microcar called “the flying saucer,” a tiny knockoff Jeep, another microcar with four wheels, a Mercedes 190 SL knockoff, and a bizarrely misshapen sedan. Right? If that’s…
Ever since General Motors rolled out the latest game plan for self-driving cars earlier this month, I haven’t been able to shake a line that CEO Mary Barra, among others, offered up: The carmaker’s vision of an autonomous future, she said, is for traffic crashes to be a thing of the past.
The Grand Tour is officially done with Mike Skinner The American, but it needed a new hot shoe for track tests, and the awesome news is that the role’s gone to a woman for season two. She’s racing driver Abbie Eaton, but you wouldn’t know that from actually watching the show.
Now that the weather’s nice enough to exercise outdoors (or at least tell yourself that you will), Nordstrom Rack’s running a pretty solid sale on Adidas apparel and shoes for men, women, and kids. It’s a good time to stock up on basics to throw on for the gym, or running errands.
The sweet smell of fresh strawberries in the garden. A cool breeze first cutting across a hot day. A BNR32 Skyline drifting in the sunset.
Some people decorate for the holidays. A smaller margin go so far as to decorate their vehicles, too. This is inexplicable, and now there is science, courtesy of GM, detailing how inefficient and bad those tacky dollar-store antlers, bows and wreaths can be.
You know what are nice? Tailgates. You know what’s not nice? That tailgates are all-but entirely restricted to trucks and SUVs. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
People like to believe that Apple is a company that never makes mistakes. Never has that logic been so obviously flawed as it was in 2017. This year, it seemed like Apple couldn’t make it through a single week without some big, embarrassing screw up. So, for the sheer joy of it, we made a list.
Few things are as wild as they seem—looking at you, vinyl-wrapped enthusiast cars on Craigslist that end up being stock automatics—but this Toyota Supra is. Not only is it a V12 that’s hit 222 mph and looks like a knockoff Ferrari 488 in the front, but the owner who tuned it also got rather good at being arrested in…
