Cars that are not supposed to go off-road, made to look off-roady, are so hot right now. Who can blame us for going nuts over a Porsche 911 on all-terrain tires, though? The absurdity is just too delightful. But if you can’t bare to rip up a real one for Fury Road, this small-scaled version is pretty sweet.
If you have dreams of getting extremely sideways but don’t quite have the courage to try and slide your car inches from a wall, believe it or not you can start by doing donuts. And luckily for you, Formula D pro drifter Ken Gushi has some tips for us on how to make a sweet tire-slaying circle. Pay attention to him and…
The 2016 Honda Africa Twin arrived with a whole lot of flash and fanfare. Here was a large, cool-looking adventure bike you could pick up from a dealership and ride around the world. One person’s actually doing that, and documenting their adventure online.
Last month I sort-of inherited this 1984 Nissan 300ZX with more than 200,000 miles on the odometer. It’s in remarkably good condition for an almost-free car, but the issues it does have are not things I’ve ever encountered in other old cars before.
The angry, blocky Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen has been around in its current shape since the 1970s. Over the years its powertrains have changed, its interior’s been wrapped in different cloths, but it looks like 2018 will be the first major update the world’s roughest luxury “car” has had in a long, long time.
I’m not sure if I’ve plunged into some truly depraved tier of hipsterism or if I’m just still high off the fumes from Radwood 2, but this week I had an epiphany: cassette tapes are the best way to listen to music while driving.
There was a time when you could buy a heavy-duty Chevy Suburban from a dealership, with diesel power and healthy payload and pulling capacity to go with it. Now, GM won’t sell them to civilians. But independent outfits are doing the lord’s work and making their own.
“It’ll look cool,” they said. Indeed. Just be careful which trees you park under, smart guy. Somebody might take that thing home thinking it’s for them.
Immense wildfires are still ripping across southern California this week. This video from what seems to be the cab of a CalTrans plow truck clearing paths firefighters and rescuers is particularly harrowing.
The $207,900 Range Rover SVAutobiography is comfortable, of course. It’s also optimized for lazy passengers. The amount of motorization in the back seat of this thing is absolutely awesome if you’re an indolent millionaire, and probably the opposite if you’re the fourth owner trying to keep all these electronics alive.
You can buy a USB adapter for your car’s 12 volt cig lighter plug for a couple bucks. But if you spend just a tiny bit more time and money, you can have a charging port that looks clean enough to have come from the factory.
Hard charging the APR Stage+ Volkswagen Golf R sucks your skin to the seat and blurs every cell in your brain that’s not dedicated to driving. By the time you catch your breath, the only things sputtering around your noggin will be awe, incredulity and “how is this a freaking Golf?”
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.
