    Creating an EV typically means making it abundantly clear to everyone that it’s an EV at first glance. Whether that is done by penning a futuristic exterior, or adding some sort of over-the-top screen to the interior, automakers can’t seem to help themselves when it comes to making their EV stand out. Audi took a […]

    The Montana-based team from GoFastCampers has a new product for you truck owners out there. And based on the footage and images I’ve seen of the new Truck Topper, it’s pretty damn well built. In fact, it’s overbuilt compared to the bed of your truck. To prove this, GFC had to reinforce the bed of […]

    The September episode is live! Eric updates us on his Vietnam trip, then we interview Abhi Eswarappa of Iconic Motorbikes. Abhi’s audio feed isn’t the greatest quality, but give him some slack. He was using his phone. Through wireless earbuds. Outdoors. At an airport. He’s still a fascinating guest, with plenty of interesting bikes to […]

    It’s easy to see your daily commuter as nothing more than a transportation appliance, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Lexus, once a purveyor of staid beige sedans has been on a streak of producing some adventurous stuff. A decade ago they brought us the LFA supercar, and ever since then it’s been […]

    It can’t be that bad, can it? How wrong could VW have gotten it? Countless reviews said the center screen and HVAC situation was abysmal, but that must have been an exaggeration for entertainment’s sake, right? These were the questions swirling in my mind prior to taking delivery of the 2022 Volkswagen Golf R press […]

    Ford has unveiled the 7th-generation Mustang to a crowd of crowd-eating enthusiasts in Detroit this evening. America’s favorite pony car has been with us for nearly 60 years and it’s evolved significantly since then. This breed is the most advanced and most powerful yet (not including Shelby models) and retains two critical pieces of its […]

    Nothing says BMW like the M5. Sure, the M3 is the enthusiast choice, but match prestige with driving preciousness and luxury appointments, and the M5 stands on a pedestal all its own. But there was a gap when other cars overtook the BMW as the top-tier choice for speedy executive travel. Has the 2022 BMW […]

    It’s fun to sling a Hot Wheels car around the room. Or over your desk. Or down the hall. Pretty much anywhere you want to roll a Hot Wheels is the right place to do so. What if you want to see it move under power, though? Well, if you’re as skilled as TLS Garage, […]

    I reviewed my last Volkswagen Tiguan (German pronunciation: “fɔlksˌvaːgŋ̍ ˈtiːɡu̯aːn”) back in November of 2020 and came away with a resounding “I dig it”. Part of the second generation that launched in 2018, the Tiguan was the smallest SUV of the bunch at the time, coming in under the Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport. As […]

    I spent a week with a Maserati Levante Trofeo. It’s an interesting machine in that it makes fun noises, has strong power, and certainly makes its presence known in that properly Italian way. Even if it’s still a crossover. It’s not a revelatory driving experience or anything like that. And the interior is fine for […]
