Truly today is a day of miracles: on Polish Wikipedia I have discovered a picture of a Panoz Esperante GTR-1 chasing down a Vector M12 GT2 race car. I am currently in a state of shock.
We don’t do this very often. Opening up Our Modest Car Collection to yahoos off the street, even if they’ve put on a faded Banana Republic polo and clutching a cheap notebook in some pitiful mockery of journalism, is a blessedly rare occurrence. But today, you, my friend, you are in for a treat! Because behind these…
It's not easy to start your own supercar company, and Jerry Wiegert had no illusions about the price of carbon fiber. Luckily, the tobacco industry had plenty of cash to pay for his toys in exchange for a good publicity shot.
It's not every day you get a chance to buy a brand new Vector chassis from 1978, but a W2 prototype's most important part just found its way to Ebay. Just think of the possibilities for a second!
Of the millions of people living in homes across the country, few achieve the success to live in the ultimate. Millions of people climb towering mountains throughout the world. Few achieve the skills to climb the ultimate. Millions of people drive cars throughout the world. Few achieve the success to drive the…
Gerald Wiegert's company claimed they've created "the ultimate in automotive design, power, comfort and safety" with the Vector W8. It seems from this crash test that at least the last was true.
That spectacular Tucker 48 isn't the only car you should grab at the RM Auction in Monterey next month. Oh no. There's a Vector!
The Youabaian Puma debuted earlier this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and I think it's great. It's hilarious, it's loud, and its logo is possibly a thong covering the globe. And that's what's great about all vanity cars – they are always unique.
There has never been a car that says “Yes I have Chlamydia and yes I have coke” quite like the Vector W2 Twin Turbo. Its PR photos are as hilariously bad/good as you’d expect. No, they’re actually better/worse.
If you've never heard of a Vector M12, we can't say we are shocked, only 18 were built between 1995 and 1999 before the company folded for the same reasons most small exotic car companies don't make it—mismanagement, cash flow issues and lack of sales.
In technology they call it vaporware. In cryptozoology it's called a cryptid. But Nice Price or Crack Pipe is all about the cars, and that's why we call it... the Vector.
In car design, the wedge is something we can appreciate. Here's our list of the top ten most influential wedge-shaped designs of the 60s, 70s and 80s.
When I stop and reflect about why I spend more time thinking about cars than I do, well, anything, one of the defining, transcendental moments has to be when I was around 12-years-old with my father at the LA Auto Show. In one hall they had the "other" makes including the Lamborghini LM002 and my absolute favorite,…
Somewhere at the Los Angeles auto show, while the world's automakers are splaying their latest show ponies under million-dollar lighting kits, a revival of sorts is quietly taking place. Car freaks of a certain age remember the trials and triumphs of Vector as they might the rise and fall of a forgotten Hollywood…
Philosophy Week is... dead! Let's get back to the business of doing business around here. How many El Caminos does it take to screw in a light bulb? Ba-doon crash. Take my editor, please! As it happens, we now have a nice backlog of user submitted QOTDs. And this creamy number has risen to the top
Due to the rather tumultous affections of the last five women we've fallen for like a flaming lunchbag of well-overly-ripe okra dropped from 45,000 feet onto the Bonneville Salt Flats, we've developed a serious thing for Neko Case's music. It's what happens when punkers grow up, gain an appreciation for the rural and…
