The photos and images uploaded by Los Angeles residents of the wildfire make the city look like a hellscape. Some have lost everything, and many have already been evacuated from their homes. If you’re looking to help out and have a car, then Turo might be able to hook you up.
If you were one of the lucky few to be hand-picked by Ford to be able to buy its new Ford GT super car, lucky you! Ford also made you sign a contract that made sure you wouldn’t try and sell your GT for profit for at least the first two years of ownership. Wrestler John Cena did just that, Ford is suing him, but at…
At last, the first episode of the second season of Amazon’s The Grand Tour aired last night. Armed with the knowledge that it would be the episode in which we see Richard Hammond’s Rimac Concept One crash, it cast a darkly anticipatory atmosphere over the viewing. But, despite a few snags, the episode generally…
Over the summer, we learned of some very scary news that Richard Hammond had crashed while driving the all-electric Rimac Concept One supercar during the filming of the second season of The Grand Tour. In addition to putting him in the hospital, the crash also threw a lot of The Grand Tour’s filming schedule out of…
Most of the time, the Nürburgring gets brought to my attention because some manufacturer was there and set a really fast, lightning-quick lap time and wants us all to know about it because car sales. It’s not always Very Serious Car Drivers there all the time, though! It actually does get fun!
See that beautiful blue car up there? It’s the reborn Alpine A110 and, no duh, it’s not coming to the United States. So we can only admire it from afar and fantasize about how great the alleged sportier version will be.
This just in for your daily (monthly? yearly?) dose of Saab news: the reborn EV Saab 9-3 sounds bleak as all hell. I don’t know if my poor heart can take any more of this.
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 you need to know.
It’s been a little over a year since Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond returned to us with their new show on Amazon Prime, The Grand Tour. And this Friday, Dec. 8, the show will return for its second season. What are you hoping to see?
Oftentimes, you’ll hear terms like “boost threshold” and “turbo lag” get thrown around, sometimes mixed up and sometimes used as the same thing. They aren’t actually, and here’s the difference.
Or maybe it’s not! Who am I to say?
Oh, hello there. I will assume that you who are reading these words right now enjoy good things in life. For instance, a certain surge of joy potentially brought on by the appearance of the new Toyota Supra at the Detroit Auto Show. Well, I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but it won’t be there. Sorry.
Occasionally, I am permitted to wander out from behind this computer screen and venture into the real world, where the rest of you and The Cars exist. Not as commenters behind usernames or mere photos of cars; real, living breathing people and machines to enjoy the company of. That’s where you can get into the actual…
Last Saturday, the very best cars that the ‘80's and ‘90's had to offer descended upon The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, California, to attend Radwood 2. There was music, food, beer and great merch. Dogs and people decked out in their best ’80s and ’90s garb. It was incredible. You were all incredible.
Car meets are a great place to meet people. Honestly, you go to a car meet to talk to folks. Sometimes it’s great, sometimes it’s not so great. Just like meeting people anywhere!
We saw some cool stuff at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. A turbocharged Mazda6. The new Corvette ZR1. The brand-new Volvo XC40. All in all, it was a pretty decent show. You should go, if you’re in town.
Nineteen cupholders. Nineteen cupholders in a car that seats a maximum of eight people. That’s nearly 2.5 cupholders per occupant. Other publications, unaware of the importance of hydration, thought that perhaps this is too many cupholders. They are wrong.
Out of everything that I saw at this year’s 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, my favorite car was actually an SUV. I know, I’m surprised, too. But it was the 2019 Volvo XC40, a car you should really be paying attention to if you like very cleverly designed interiors filled with secret nooks and crannies for all your stuff.
Yes, it’s exactly what you think: Mitsubishi took the name of a sporty little car that was once great and stuck it on a new crossover to join all the other lumpy crossovers currently saturating our market: the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. And while I could easily slip into a blind rage over the whole ordeal, I…
Like most people, I love concept cars. I love looking at cars that are designed purely for the aesthetics. Cars that look the way they do because the designer just wanted certain lines to interact a certain way. Real-life distractions like safety regulations and crash test ratings and proper aerodynamics often aren’t…
