Tesla is adamant that its cars are significantly less likely to catch fire than your average car, as Reuters reports, but that still hasn’t kept a surveillance video from spreading worldwide, showing a Tesla Model S bursting into flame and all but disappearing, Spinal Tap-style, in a parking garage reportedly in…
We’ve all seen the video of Ayrton Senna thrashing an NSX on track in a pair of loafers. Now, please enjoy this dude drifting the hell out of a Nissan Silvia in a pair of slides.
Geely isn’t one of the very biggest carmakers in China, but it’s growing increasingly well-known here in America, what with its recent acquisitions of Volvo and Lotus. So it’s worth keeping an eye on, particularly when it launches a new all-electric brand emphasizing “overseas” sales.
When the 1998-2002 clown shoe BMW Z3 M Coupe was first presented to management (the first prototype of the Z3 Coupe, rather), the executive was at a loss for words. He just stood there, silent, as Car Magazine reported at the time. That probably wasn’t a good thing.
The 1980s were good years for BMW. This was the yuppie decade, when E30s ruled and M cars blossomed. This was even when the company finally got its V12 engine project off the ground, having sat in development hell since at least the early 1970s. The bar was getting raised, and in 1987, with the BMW Z1, the company…
Formula Drift is interesting in that it’s just a bunch of cars burning tires going sideways but it’s also the most unrestricted and creative top-level racing series in the country and the most innovative in how it broadcasts, including drone replays in the online livestream. Those shots are pretty low-res when live,…
Maybe there’s one in your town. There sure is one in mine. A maroon Nissan NX2000, parked over by where the houses meet the highway. It might just seem like any other forgettable ‘90s coupe with peeling clear coat, but these things are worth a look.
Anyone who has heard the howling wail of Geoff Stoneback’s V8-swapped Nissan 240SX knows that this is no exaggeration.
Mazda in the 1960s and ‘70s was on a tear, putting out some of the most fantastic, stylish cars you’d find in the world, not just Japan. Most of these old charmers are recognized for their excellence, and priced accordingly. Also, here’s a 1972 Mazda Luce for $4,500.
Forgotten jets, looming Brexit, and Tesla might be onto something with this whole “building cars” thing. All that and so much more for The Morning Shift of Tuesday, April 2, 2019.
It’s 2019 and there’s finally an electric pro drift car. This is Napoleon Motorsports’ Chevy Camaro EL1, and I have questions.
I had sort of assumed that the Ford Flex, a retro gigantic wagon in an age of globular crossovers, had faded into obscurity already. Not quite, as it turns out.
Sports cars can be rally cars, and rally cars can be sports car. I hope this bit of inspiration guides you this morning and this week.
For a while it’s been clear that drifters are the new hot rodders. But Ryan Tuerck’s new livery for the 2019 Formula Drift season takes it a step farther: What if drift cars were the modern 1970s street machines?
Before the Top Gear reboot in the early 2000s, one name stood at the peak of car culture in the UK: Max Power.
Please bear with me that I have a new and indefatigable obsession: the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, the 207 mph Anglo-German super grand tourer, was available with 18-inch wheels.
One of the bright selling points of electric cars is that they’re silent, but that’s also a potential safety hazard for pedestrians used to listening for the rumble of an internal combustion engine to know a car is coming. The problem is downright dangerous for those who are blind. Some electric cars make a fake…
The last car I owned was so rusty that a dinner-plate sized chunk of the floor once started flapping in the breeze while I was driving down the highway. I thought that was bad. It has nothing on this Corolla.
Daniel Ricciardo didn’t make it to the finish of the Australian Grand Prix this year, but he did make it to the first corner, which is something of an achievement given that his front wing exploded.
