Don’t just throw some cell phone pics on Craigslist and call it good. What you need is action, drama and possibly a, well, I don’t want to spoil it.
This car started out as a right-hand-drive, front-wheel-drive, JDM Honda Integra and its owner David Richmond figured he would do (what seemed like) a simple parts swap to make it rear-wheel drive. Simple is not how things worked out.
“I definitely did not depart because I had lost interest in working,” Klaus Grohmann, the head of Tesla’s contentious but critical manufacturing arm in Germany, told Reuters. This is what happens when you butt heads with Elon Musk.
I don’t know if this is exactly a forest-for-the-trees kind of situation, but there are certain times when you end up not exactly focusing on what you’re expected to.
The Mazda 787B is famous for its ear-piercing wail at high RPM, made possible by its four-rotor engine. Rarely do we take time to listen to how insane these cars sound at idle.
If you’ve ever wondered how the technocrat gazillionaires actually use their power and influence, here is a little glimpse into that world: Sergei Brin, Google co-founder and Google Glass proponent, has been running airship project in secret.
The Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories of success and failure in this multi-trillion dollar industry.
Jalopnik’s own Managing Editor Erin Marquis just bought a new car. She loves it dearly, but it has already caused a problem for her. It’s a problem that we should have a word for, but don’t.
Michigan has some of the fastest-driving traffic I have ever seen in America, and now some of its speed limits are rising to reflect it. Some 600 miles of rural highways are going up to 75 mph, 900 miles of smaller roads are going up to 65 mph, and the state is looking to see what else can get a bump.
There were days when I would walk out to my car, key in hand, filled with joy and anticipation for the drive to come. There were also days when I wished I would walk out and find that my car had been crushed by a meteor and I’d never have to deal with its bullshit again.
I would certainly be freaking out if my little two-seat plane suffered a complete engine failure over Taiwan, but this pilot remained perfectly and absolutely calm as he safely got the thing on the ground. Then he took the time to cuss out everyone in existence.

Though piracy is far down from its early 2010s peak, Somali pirates did recently seize their first ship since 2012. This video “Somali Pirates VS Ship’s Private Security Guards,” currently at 13 and a half million views, seems to show part of a new resurgence in piracy on the high seas. Nope.

There’s a trick to this BMW and you’ll get it once you hear it.
We will have to wait a few more weeks for Formula Drift’s reigning champion (and useful drinking buddy) Chris Forsberg to debut his twin-turbo, anti-lag VQ V6 in competition. The team is still working out the engine’s bugs. For now, we can only hear it in testing and it is WHRRRTTCHCRRKRKKKvrrrtvrrrtvrrtWHKRRRKRKRKRK.
Today we saw tech gazillionaire Larry Page’s ‘flying car,’ the Kitty Hawk. Pretty clearly, it is not a flying car. But maybe it’s something else.
Today Google founder Larry Page showed off Kitty Hawk, a new startup company that bills itself as making a much-anticipated “flying car,” and... it’s not really a flying car. It does look fun, though?
Tesla’s commitment to new technology is what put it on the map, but the way this tech rolls out is always contentious. Lithium-ion batteries, Autopilot and now the Model X’s Falcon doors, which are blamed for a harrowing incident in China.
