Hello, Jalopnik pals. It’s been a while. Some may have wondered what I’ve been up to since my summer internship at this glorious website ended, so I’m writing to let you know just what I’ve been doing: Being a massive, unmitigated disaster of a person. To prove it (as if you needed proof) I got a very nice, innocent…

A mysterious Ford GT was able to cross the block for $1.2 million more than the car’s $450,000 MSRP at Mecum auctions in May of this year, despite the company aggressively enforcing anti-flipping provisions signed by all Ford GT buyers.

There are many things to love about the Lexus LS 500: it’s comfortable, quiet, well-appointed and refined. But that’s pretty much always been the case for the LS. What surprised me, though, was the engine.
The beloved Toyota 86 is back for 2019 with a new special edition, this time featuring upgraded suspension, better brakes, grippier tires and of course absolutely no discernible power increase to take advantage of the newfound performance parts.
Thousands of documents detailing assembly line schematics, robotics configurations, and other trade secrets for automakers like Volkswagen, Toyota and Tesla were found on a publicly accessible server belonging to an automotive robotics supplier. It is potentially very bad news for these car companies, and here’s why.
The Nissan Leaf Nismo is going on sale in Japan this month, featuring a retuned computer that promises better acceleration and more performance-oriented tires and suspension. But the real speed comes from the strips of red trim, of course.

Six times per week, an empty plane used to fly from London’s Heathrow Airport to Cardiff, Wales. The next day, the plane would make the return trip without a single passenger. Half As Interesting, the second channel from Planelopnik-approved Wendover Productions, details why ghost flights like this sometimes operate…
I, like many kids from the mean streets of suburban Cleveland, am no stranger to the joust. After watching dozens of my friends succumb to the tempress that is the boat joust, I too cut my teeth shovin’ chumps into the depths of the Cuyahoga.
