Corvette drivers Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garcia, and Mike Rockenfeller took their bright yellow America-on-wheels Chevrolet to fifth in the GTE Pro class, classified 21st overall. They didn’t win, but just surviving Le Mans is enough to warrant a big ‘ole smoke show. Nothing could make me prouder to have been born…
In Hong Kong, repairs—even on expensive cars—often happen curbside. Here’s a mechanic in Yuen Long wrenching on a Honda S2000.
The 2018 Le Mans 24 field has been assembled for the first time today during pre-race testing. The Astons are eye-searing Green, and Porsche has a couple throwback livery 911 RSRs. It’s Toyota’s race to lose in LMP1, but LMP2 and the GTE classes are really anyone’s game. Who are you picking to win each class?
Two very normal Australian boys went vroom vroom in their cars today. When they had finished, one jumped into a pool of dirty water fully clothed with all of his friends, and the other drank a milk the wrong way. Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi!
Gotta love the 2008-only fascia on this Dodge Magnum SRT-8. The poor Magnum’s life was cut short after only four model years, while the 300, Charger and Challenger with which it shared a platform have continued on. This is your reminder that life isn’t fair.
0.043 seconds is all that separated Al Unser, Jr’s victory from Scott Goodyear’s second place in the 1992 Indianapolis 500 race. Get ready for some great action as we close in on the 102nd Indy 500 one week from today.
There’s a new Porsche 911 GT3 R coming soon, but that doesn’t mean the current car is a slouch. Three of those claimed the first, second and third starting positions at the Nürburgring 24 Hours today. Laurens Vanthoor claimed pole position for tomorrow’s day-long race with a lap time of 8:09.105 in the No. 911 Manthey…
Extreme action hero movie pose.
Porsche’s 1963 world sports car championship entry, the strange and unique Italo-German mashup 356 Carrera GTL Abarth, may be the most wild-looking racer ever. This car was delivered with a roofline too short for many drivers to even get in, but with Porsche’s four-cam flat-four aircooled engine it actually proved…
There’s more space than you’d expect inside a Trabant. It’s a good day to pack up the trunk and go.
You can buy a brand new Lada Niva (well, technically it’s called the “Lada 4x4") today that’s really not much different than the Niva that launched in the late 1970s. Just look at that awesome, lifted little 4x4 hatchback. It is what off-road dreams are made of.
The Jeep CJ-5 was in production from the mid 1950s all the way until the the early 1980s, and—along with the M38A1 military model on which it is based—marked the beginning of the end of Jeep’s “flat fender” era. Just look at those beautiful rounded front fenders.
Janelle Monáe dropped a new album, Dirty Computer, this week, and with it a visual accompaniment she’s calling an “Emotion Picture”. In a memory flashback within the film, Monáe’s Jane 57821 drives [flies?] this early 1970s Ford Mustang-shaped flying car, and it’s just too cool. The car is a major part of the…
The Eagle Premier may be one of the most under-appreciated cars of all time. It was engineered by Renault in France, designed by Guigiaro in Italy, its V6 was developed with help from Volvo in Sweden, and assembly took place in Bramalea, Ontario. For 1988, it was actually a fairly advanced car in some ways, but…
Spotted in Nuremberg, Germany, the still-futuristic Citroën DS sits next to its more utilitarian siblings, the 2CV-based Citroën Ami 6 and Méhari. Two Beetles in the background sit in the shadows of the incredible French gems.
Should the Prelude come back? The Prelude should come back.
Would the orignal Four Door Sports Car please stand up?
This photo is from an alternate universe where BMW built hover cars.
When we look for cars, we value both The Intelligence and The Space. Also, a deeply strange 2+1 seating arrangement featuring one normal seat and a bench with two seatbacks. That’s why the Matra-Simca Bagheera is the only car for us. Also, all other cars.
