That would be the ultimate automotive troll. It would be like buying the Mona Lisa and giving her a make-over

The driver is under 28 or the car is under 28? I’d be in favor of the latter - I don’t go to C&C to look at your stock 2007 Challenger with a cold air intake. The last C&C I was at was row after row of stock late model pony cars. I get that you like your car, but there’s nothing rare or unique about your 2010 Camaro Read more

My sister is a public defender and has basically a stack of books on how men’s brains don’t fully form until about 28 because she deals with lots of stupid men that fit the bill. When I was 25, I ::shocker:: bought a Mustang, because it was the fastest I could afford. I didn’t crash it, but wow, looking back... wow. Read more

Or maybe a $500 deposit from anyone under 28 that will be returned only after the vehicle is observed leaving the C&C without breaking any traffic laws.

Specifically Michiganders, who are not much more than petulant children with fully-grown adult bodies.

The answer is actually displacement taxes outside North America.

The LS engines are the antithesis to DOHC. There is simply no compelling argument in favor of DOHC over an LS engine. Read more

Alanis saved my life more than anyone will ever know, providing much needed backup for Jalopnik’s racing coverage when I really, really needed it. Trying to keep an eye on all the racing series all the time was exhausting as the only person here who was paying close attention to it, and being able to trade off weekend Read more

Keep in mind a lot of the advice you are getting here is from people who clearly don’t own an EV.

The AC reduces total range by about 20 miles. That’s it. It’s negligible. Heater kills it, but you don't use those in Houston.

A Bolt is a full electric. I am in Houston and I can easily get 250 out of it. Mi/kwh is around 4.5-5.0. You get more range, funny enough, in mild traffic. You also charge every night, not when you are "empty" like a gas car. There is no range anxiety. None.

Model 3 and Bolt would work fine for you. I would recommend looking at the Kia Niro or Hyundai Kona, though. The tax incentives on those two cars make it cheaper than the model 3 and bolt. Read more

Start- stop driving is best for EV driving because when stop/ slow down, you’re regenerating power.

Driving the car (at speed) consumes way more power than running the car accessories (lights, AC and so on), so puttering along in a traffic jam would save you loads of money in an EV. Read more

It’s heat that takes a toll on range, but not really the A/C. I can sit in my Volt with the AC running on a 100 degree day and use about 1kwh per hour, so you might use 4kwh in 4 hours, which is nothing in a high capacity EV. To equate that to miles, it’s probably no more of a hit than a 16-20 miles of range to run AC Read more

Your fear is unfounded. AC/Heat have a very, very small effect on energy usage. You can sit in your driveway with AC/Heat, radio, etc... running with an EV much, much longer than an ICE car. With Tesla, there is even a camp mode to keep the cabin temperature stable over night. You’re fine. 100 miles is a piece of Read more

48 miles give or take. It’s distance, not time that has the majority of effect on usage.
