The California Highway Patrol has successfully rescued a chihuahua using the quick reflexes of a motorcycle cop and the penetrating stare of infrared camera mounted to an airplane.
Not only was this dude casually driving a Porsche Carrera GT around Chicago in winter, he’s got the dang roof off. Apparently it was 28 degrees out there yesterday. Cars were made to be put to work, and this guy gets it. A legend in our own time.
Lots of 2018 model year cars are safe, but 62 have been singled out as exceptionally adept at protecting their occupants. And of those, 15 are supposed to be the very safest.
Saleen is well-known as the purveyor of go-fast upgrades for the Ford Mustang and the outfit that finalized the S7 supercar. In the last few years, it seems that the company has gone through difficulties. Yet this month, it came out of nowhere with a seriously cool-looking performance machine promising production and…
More than a decade ago, director Dana Brown gave us the quintessential Baja movie Dust To Glory. Today, you’ll still hear desert racers and rallyists tell you about how the film turned them on to motorsports. And tomorrow, you can catch the new version. In a real live megaplex theatre near you.
This video of a wooden toy Thomas The Tank Engine doing stunts exists in a strange valley between “so-bad-it’s-good” and “wait-that’s-actually-hilarious-and-awesome.” But for some reason I’ve already watched it twice.
We’ve been hyping the Radwood 2 show for weeks, and on Saturday our dreams of bringing the ’80s and ’90s back to the streets finally came to life. And because of all of you, it was excellent. Thank you.
Wedge-shaped cars, pin stripes, skinny tires and badges that bragged about fuel injection are all coming back at Radwood 2, baby. In case you haven’t heard about this ultimate gathering of cars, motorcycles and yes, BMX bicycles from the ’80s and ’90s going down tomorrow, you better get up to speed!
Seat belts might be the most under-appreciated elements of car design. Obviously, they’re a big factor in crash survivability and driving comfort. But when an automaker takes the time to make them pretty? Oh yeah, that’s the good stuff.
Arcimoto’s $12,000 semi-enclosed electric vehicle is not going to replace the average American’s daily driver. But for what it costs, and how far it can go, it actually might be a viable inexpensive option for adventurous people who want an EV.
Bringing the 2018 Jeep Wrangler to life was a massive project that took hundreds of people years to do. We caught up with a few of them including Jeep Design Director Mark Allen, to hear about how the new Jeep known as the “JL” came together and climb around a few to dig into details.
At the official unveiling of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler today Jeep CEO Michael Manley confirmed that the 2020 model, presumably in the new-for-2018 “JL” bodystyle, would be available as a hybrid electric vehicle.
After years of teasers and trailers, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler known as the “JL” is finally officially being revealed and detailed at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Here’s a quick run through some of the new Jeep’s key specs and details.
There’s something simultaneously soothing and stimulating about the carcass of an old car sitting static in a field. It’s like looking at past and potential at once. Or, just a nice old shape married to the landscape.
Three years ago I ran into Red Bull-backed off-road racer Bryce Menzies in a bar in Iquique, Chile. He was scouting the Dakar Rally- the 5,000-odd mile endurance challenge named after a place in Africa hosted by a French outfit in South America. Next year, he’s finally getting into the pilot’s seat of an X-Raid Mini.
The garbage can in the back of this old S-10 never wants to go home. Probably because it doesn’t have a home. Anymore.
The value of old SUVs has continued to climb since we first started noticing this trend years ago. I’m convinced that in the not-too-distant future, anything with four-wheel drive that looks vaguely rugged will be selling for too much money. A year ago I would have said “except for the Bronco II,” but now I’m not so…
