De Tomaso has had its fair share of troubles. After going through liquidation, re-branding, false starts and an arrest, it appears that the name has been resurrected at the UK Intellectual Property Office. What that means exactly isn’t immediately clear, though.
I’ll always say yes to more car television shows. Cars are relatable for everyone in some form or another and the first episode of Proving Grounds, which is NBC Sports’ new car show, gives us plenty of automotive eye-candy to drool over and offers engaging hosts, all wrapped up in a terrific ‘80s aesthetic. But it…
The 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor sailed into our off-road dreams in a fury of spraying dirt and splashing mud. And then those dreams were subsequently smashed because we also learned that the version we’ve seen wouldn’t be coming to the U.S. market. So if you’re driving around (likely in Michigan) and you see a 2019 Ranger…
I don’t know how it happened, but I woke up this morning in the mood to be grossed out. And I’m taking you all with me. Turn back now or sit tight here, because we’re about to go through some really disgusting car messes.
Question: What are you doing this Sunday night? And on the next consecutive four Sunday nights after that? Answer: Nothing! You’re keeping your schedule wide open and clear because NBC Sports’ /DRIVE is back for its fifth season. And yours truly will be making an appearance.
To all the Americans who were excited—nay, thrilled—for the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor, I have some truly bad news: The truck is probably not going to come here. Sorry.
The Ford GT made headlines two years ago, not only because of its surprise unveiling, but also because you had to go through Ford’s selective application process to even be allowed to buy one. I guess if you missed out on the first 1,000 GTs, then you’ll get another chance at the new ones Ford is planning to build.
Care by Volvo, Volvo’s subscription program that was off to a rocky start here in the U.S., has expanded to Canada as of this week. The setup there is slightly different than what we have here, but it includes winter tires. Sounds pretty ace to me.
I’d like to tell you about a vicious cycle regarding the awesome Audi RS wagons that dominates my brain every time I think about them. I’m telling you because I believe that nobody should suffer alone, so I’m taking you on this journey with me.
Imagine you have have to go to the hospital for a bit of surgery. You leave your car safe and sound in its parking space, reasonably expecting it to be there when you get back. That wasn’t the case for a man only identified as “Mr. G,” whose BMW was mistakenly seized and crushed by his local government in a case of…
I’m excited for the Porsche Taycan, Porsche’s upcoming all-electric sedan. We’ve yet to see the production version of the sleek thing (though the “concept” will pretty much be it), but some artistic renderings of what it could look like show something extremely promising.
Stealing someone’s beloved car is such a scumbag move. But unfortunately, it happens. This time, the owners of a wonderful, yellow 1970 Ford F-250 Camper Special are distraught over the truck’s disappearance. Let’s see if we can help them find it.
Clearly, BMW thought that our current crop of crossovers and SUVs were not large enough, so it made the 2019 X7 goddamn massive. This is it. Meet it. See it. Internalize it.
It was my dreaded nightmare and it finally happened: The garage valet scraped my car. Fucking dammit. I was pissed. What do you do if this happens to you?
This past Sunday, cars, bikes and trucks of varying degrees of radness descended upon the Philadelphia Navy Yard for the inaugural Radwood Philadelphia event. It kicked ass.
I don’t allow messes in my car. There’s no eating when you’re inside. There is a wad of microfiber towels at the ready in the trunk and in the seat pockets to wipe up the crap. But clearly, not everyone abides by this lifestyle. What’s the most disgusting mess you’ve seen in a car?
Sad that you missed out on Radwood Philly because you didn’t have something rad to bring? Well dry those tears because here’s your chance to own one of the raddest cars to ever exist: Matt Farah’s very own 1988 Ford Mustang SSP 5.0. And if you buy it, the proceeds go to the cause of your choosing.
Air-cooled Porsche 911s: I’m so over them. Sure, they look nice and sound even nicer, but their revoltingly high resale prices and ensuing hoard of bothersome purist fanboys have all but soured the cars for me. At least this one guy found a use for his air-cooled 911 that didn’t involve driving it and then talking…
We’re well into the new era of electric cars. Hot on the heels of Tesla, nearly every major automaker has implemented or will implement an electrified vehicle of their own. And Porsche’s offering, the upcoming Taycan, will be the one to beat.
It’s a hard day for all of us when it’s time to give up on a car, especially if it has high personal value. If you’re on the fence about this very decision yourself, you might find some answers here.
