As the age of the electric car begins, there are plenty of reasons to believe that a V8-powered Ford Mustang may not be long for this world. With Ford announcing that it will offer only EVs in Europe by 2030 it’s worth wondering whether a V8 Mustang will survive past that date.
For all our nostalgia of the cars we grew up with, modern cars have some fantastic amenities we take for granted. Backup cameras are pretty awesome; so too are blind spot warning lights in side mirrors (though, dedicated blind spot mirrors are a low-tech solution to the same problem).

At the 2009 Detroit Auto Show Dodge was there with the fourth-generation Ram, Chrysler had a ceremony to recognize its best suppliers, and Chrysler also said it was working on something called “advanced wireless technology.” Oh, and also Chrysler had deeply serious plans to make a huge bet on electric cars.
Did you own a Ford Ranger EV back in the ‘90s? Do you have a Nissan Leaf in the middle of nowhere, hundreds of miles from a fast charger? Do you keep your Tesla Roadster in Manhattan, even in a blackout? The world of EVs is full of interesting stories, and we want to hear yours!
Hello, friends. Welcome to Jalopnik Tech, an editorial initiative aimed at demystifying electric cars and advanced driver assist systems. Starting today, a new section of the site will be where we tear down EVs, build them and post deep dives that illustrate exactly how they’re engineered.
It’s a new week, and I’ve been chosen by the Secretary of the Interior to welcome you to it. So, officially: welcome. To get you started, here’s a cutaway of a 1961 Renault Estafette (that means “dispatch rider,” or “courier”) and I think you’ll agree it’s a real packaging triumph. Lots of usable volume in there.…
EV startups are always trying to bring something cool to the table, and AK Motor International from Canada is no exception. But the Maple Majestic may not get the attention AK Motor is looking for, as the promo shots for the car clearly show it to be a scale model — one with little detail, at that.
The Dodge Daytona/Chrysler Laser twins once reigned as the hottest-looking of all of Chrysler’s K-cars. Today’s Nice Price or No Dice Laser is a survivor of that era, but will its price make it worth taking a second look?
This weekend, we celebrate a beautiful thing: NASCAR competing at the Daytona International Speedway road course. And it’s got me thinking about how we can solve the whole “rained out NASCAR race” thing.
When you’re facing a world that seems to be moving away from the internal combustion engines that we’ve always known and loved to electrification, it’s time to maybe reconsider your options.

When we talk about the Isle of Man on Jalopnik, we’re generally talking about the Isle of Man TT, but today, the little isle is involved in something even wilder: an underground roundabout.

Well, folks. The time is here. It’s time for me to audit one of my first-ever collectively despised Jalopnik takes. It’s time to say that I’ve changed my mind and that pickup trucks are not a plague and should not be banned, contrary to my previously stated beliefs.
I know some folks have been a little grumpy that the cars featured on Bring A Trailer aren’t the cool barn finds they used to be and that they’re getting quite pricey, and I can normally agree with that. But right now, there’s a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7.R GT machine that actually raced in the IMSA series going for…
