Insert Prostitution Joke Here, The Ford Escort Is Back!

Well, it's back in China, who never really had the original ones, so "back" isn't exactly right. Still, Ford did just show this surprisingly handsome little sedan at the Beijing Auto Show, and for those of us who fondly remember Escorts (like the good British one, or even the American shitbox), this is news. » 4/22/14 2:00pm Yesterday 2:00pm

Here's That Poster Of R2 Droids In Racing Livery You Probably Wanted

Recently, my 3 year-old son Otto has been really, really into R2 droids. This, of course, is totally fine by me, as I loved them as a kid as well, and frankly still do. So an excuse to buy a bunch of toy droids is always welcome. That's probably why I decided to see how they'd look in racing liveries, and made this… » 4/18/14 6:30pm Friday 6:30pm

Yesterday we brought you the sad story of a man and the Porsche 911 that let him down. Many of you sympathized with this fellow gearhead, and hoped Porsche would do right by the guy. It turns out, they will! » 4/18/14 1:40pm Friday 1:40pm

BREAKING Outdated Air-Cooled News: Porsche, VW, And Zündapp Lies!

The Volkswagen Beetle genesis story is easily one of the most well-known and often-told in all of motoring. I've read about it countless times, and the details almost never change. Until now. I just encountered one of my first real contradictions in the story of the Beetle, and it's making me question everything. » 4/17/14 10:00pm Thursday 10:00pm

This Full-Length Bed Truck Should Totally Be A Thing

As you guys know, I love trucks, and I love thinking about ways to build trucks that nobody in their right mind would ever try. I still believe that the standard pickup truck design wastes too much room on the hood, and if we can't have cabover trucks, we should find another solution. » 4/17/14 8:00pm Thursday 8:00pm

Ferrari's Opening A Hotel In Spain So You Can Now Sleep In A Ferrari

Ferrari's branching out from just the high-end sportscar business and getting into the hotel racket, leveraging all those years of racing to finally make a hotel that's the size of a Raddison, but handles like a B&B. Their first hotel (and second theme park) will be in Barcelona, and will be, of course, Ferrari red. » 4/17/14 11:45am Thursday 11:45am

The Saga Of The "Lemon 911" And One Man's Quest For Justice

Nick Murray is a guy like many of us. He has a dream car, and he's worked hard to finally get it. In Nick's case, that car is a Porsche 911, and he managed to realize his dream. Well, with only one small catch: He says his Porsche 911 is a total lemon. Here's everything wrong with this sad, sick 911. » 4/17/14 10:00am 4/17/14 10:00am

2015 Dodge Charger: Here's Your New Cop Headlight Pattern To Memorize

The 2015 Dodge Charger got a nice bit of a refresh, and thankfully, it's got a nice distinctive front end that should read very clearly in your rearview mirror. With cops all over the US getting these cars, those twin elongated parenthesis in anyone's mirror should read "slow down." I think it looks pretty good, too. » 4/16/14 9:49pm 4/16/14 9:49pm

There's Eight 2015 Challenger Trims But They Forgot The Supercharger

We're seeing Dodge's 2015 Challengers a bit earlier than expected, and there's actually eight of them. They mostly differ based on engines, some suspension and brake tweaks, and their hood designs, which are clearly inspired by the '71 Challenger's hoods. The new looks include the famous twin nostril hood and the fun… » 4/16/14 8:54pm 4/16/14 8:54pm
