This week on Jalopnik, Aaron Foley ran a rant on 'emotional design' aptly titled, "Hey Designers, What the Fuck Does 'Emotional' Mean?"
I don't envy the daunting job that lies ahead for Volvo head of design Thomas Ingenlath. The Swedish brand posted a loss of close to $90 million in the first half of 2013, and while they're back in the black thanks to cost-cutting measures and growth in China, they still have an uphill battle to find firm footing in…
The best auto show chatter happens when people let their guard down and just shoot the shit. After getting the lowdown on the new MINI Cooper and wide-eyed John Cooper Works, I hung around for a while with a few of the product specialists at their booth at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Mercedes-Benz stunned everyone when they announced they were bringing the Vision GT, a car made exclusively for Gran Turismo 6, to the 2014 LA Auto Show as a real-life full-scale vehicle.
Mercedes head of design Gorden Wagener has a pretty sweet gig. Promoted to design chief at the tender age of 39, he's injected a much-needed breath of fresh air into the once-geriatric German luxury brand. Not only has he brought us stunners like the new entry-level CLA, but he's now leading the type of design team…
The 2015 Mustang is finally here in all its snouty fastback glory. Check out the infographic below to see the history of the pony car's most iconic design feature - the tri-bar tail light - and how Ford designers gave it a sexy modern twist.
We're a mere two weeks away from the official unveil of the new Mustang on December 5th. The outgoing car brought us the rebirth of retro back when it launched in 2004, and these sketches show some of crazy designs that didn't make the cut.
Last weekend, Comic Con descended on Gotham - er, New York City, bringing with it all manner of cosplay, comics, art, toys and a heinously-awful smell that got worse as the day progressed.
International man of mystery and X-Acto knife specialist Banksy continues his month-long residency in New York City with this piece that popped up yesterday on the Lower East Side. While it's no longer possible to see out of the car now that it's covered in paint, the owner should be thrilled that they now likely have…
Google engineers will tell you that one day robot-controlled cars will be able to drive better and safer than humans. One year ago, in a stunt for Hot Wheels, driver Greg Tracy proved just how far off those robots really are.
I was always crazy-jealous of the girl down the block who had a Barbie Power Wheels Jeep. Here I was pedaling away on a tricycle like some kiddie commoner, and she could tear it up in her powered piece of plastic perfection.
Donuts on donuts, the only appropriate way to celebrate National Donut Day.
There is absolutely no better way to spend your Thursday than watching this cat, who for some reason is completely ok wearing this shark costume (what the hell kind of cat are you, cat?), riding around on a Roomba chasing this adorable, unassuming duckling.
Sometimes with design - the journey is just as fascinating as the end result.
From the company that brought you the Porsche 911 GT3 RS that kept me sane during a snow storm comes a new line of Team Hot Wheels vehicles, mini-figs and play sets created in partnership with Mattel.
For today's club sandwich, I channeled my inner Elvis. Ya know, if Elvis were a modern-day hipster and felt strongly about healthy(ish) organic ingredients purchased from the Bowery Whole Foods.
It's no mystery that I'm a huge fan of Bonobo, having shared the full vinyl stream of the Black Sands album recently. He's just released his new album, The North Borders, and on a quick listen - it's a great one.
Tuesday jams to get yourself moving. This one always reminds me of summer. And summer can't come soon enough.
