De Tomaso Is Now a Registered Trademark in the UK De Tomaso Is Now a Registered Trademark in the UK

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.

NBC Sports' Proving Grounds Is Fun but Has a Problem With Conformity NBC Sports' Proving Grounds Is Fun but Has a Problem With Conformity

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…

2019 Ford Ranger Raptor: Here It Is Hanging Out in Michigan 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor: Here It Is Hanging Out in Michigan

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…

These Are the Foulest, Most Disgusting Messes You've Ever Seen in Cars These Are the Foulest, Most Disgusting Messes You've Ever Seen in Cars

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.

/Drive Is Back on Oct. 21 (Also I'm in It This Time) /Drive Is Back on Oct. 21 (Also I'm in It This Time)

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.

The 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Isn't Coming to the U.S.: Report [UPDATE] The 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Isn't Coming to the U.S.: Report [UPDATE]

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.

So Another 350 Ford GTs Are on the Way So Another 350 Ford GTs Are on the Way

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 Comes to Canada With the Promise of Winter Tires Care by Volvo Comes to Canada With the Promise of Winter Tires

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.

Here's a Silly Rumor I Heard: The 2020 Audi RS6 Wagon Could Come to The U.S. Here's a Silly Rumor I Heard: The 2020 Audi RS6 Wagon Could Come to The U.S.

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.

City Seizes and Crushes Dude’s BMW While He Was Getting Surgery City Seizes and Crushes Dude’s BMW While He Was Getting Surgery

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…

Here's What the Production Porsche Taycan Could Look Like Here's What the Production Porsche Taycan Could Look Like

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.

Let's Track Down This Stolen 1970 Ford F-250 [UPDATE: Found!] Let's Track Down This Stolen 1970 Ford F-250 [UPDATE: Found!]

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.

2019 BMW X7: Jesus Christ This Thing Is Huge 2019 BMW X7: Jesus Christ This Thing Is Huge

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.

What to Do If a Parking Garage Damages Your Car What to Do If a Parking Garage Damages Your Car

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 Is Your Raddest Radwood Philly Gallery of Radness This Is Your Raddest Radwood Philly Gallery of Radness

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.

What's the Most Repulsive Mess You've Ever Seen in a Car?  What's the Most Repulsive Mess You've Ever Seen in a Car? 

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?

Finally, a Way to Cook With an Air-Cooled Porsche 911 Finally, a Way to Cook With an Air-Cooled Porsche 911

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…

The Porsche Taycan Will Be the Electric Car to Beat The Porsche Taycan Will Be the Electric Car to Beat

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.
