We champion cars like the Austin Mini and the VW Golf and the Scion xB for packaging tons of usable space into tiny little dimensions. They’re great! But what about the opposite end of the spectrum?
Last week, I flew for 42 hours in five days so I could get a few laps on the new Kawasaki ZX-10R at the Sepang Circuit outside of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The review is on the way, and now’s your chance to get your questions in.
As your loyal servant and scribe, I spent the better part of a month riding the 2015 Harley-Davidson Dyna Low Rider to try learn about that #cruiserlife. The review is on the way, so here’s your chance to get your questions in.
If you look at the current era of cars as possibly the last great period of human driving before The Machines take over, as I tend to, then you realize 2015 was a pretty fantastic year in automobiles.
Sometimes it takes a while for a good idea to catch on. This is true with cars too. It can be years before buyers start to see a good thing.
Superheroism is great and all, but you can’t spend all your time foiling supervillans and re-routing meteorites. Sometimes you just gotta work on your ride. So, with that in mind, what superheroes are best suited to be mechanics?
Before we start doing our traditional spiked eggnog kegstands with Nana and Pop-Pop, let’s take a moment to remember what’s really important: all the terrible things that happened in in the car world in 2015.

There’s been a bit of a debate lately among a group of auto writers (which you totally don’t care about but bear with me for a second) about just how negative a car review should be—or if they should be negative at all. I say hell yes, the review should be negative, if it’s deserved.
Marfa, Texas is very much in the middle of nowhere, about an hour from the Mexican border in far West Texas. But if you go even further into the middle of nowhere, out past Valentine, you get to see Prada Marfa.
America is a huge domestic market. Much as we produce a lot of corn for our own consumption, we also produce a lot of racing just to be enjoyed by Americans. But there is (and has been) a lot of very important international events held here.
Big automaker companies are limited in what kinds of cars they build by national regulations for safety and cleanliness. And you, even you, are limited too.
Gaining access to the upper echelons of automotive performance often means spending lots of money. But what if things were different?
In a perfect race car design world, all shapes would be clean, and you’d need just one wing out back, one wing up front, and a smooth envelope of a car in between. But race car design is never perfect.
