    Kicking it back to you this week. There wasn’t really anything exciting or even remotely interesting in the industry to cover, which is sort of becoming the norm. I can only talk about so many electric prototypes and compact SUVs before I go clinically insane. I’d much rather hear from you this week. So with […]

    I’ve heard of CXC Simulations. And I always assumed it was a sort of private club for race car drivers and those with extra cash looking for a spot to practice their driving lines in a consistent, controlled environment. It’s fun to figure out when you’re wrong, and I learned that 10 seconds after walking […]

    “I AM THE GOD OF HELLFIRE” Jeremy Clarkson once proclaimed while cutting down a tree somewhere in the depths of Bolivia. Obviously, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade V-Series didn’t exist yet. The 682-horsepower, 6200-pound mass of mayhem and madness defies all logic and sensibility. Its quad tips produce the loudest bellow anyone has heard from a […]

    The Porsche Taycan is one of the best electric vehicles on the market. Sure, it’s expensive, but it’s also excellent to drive, is comfortable inside, and charges quickly. And now, the software onboard is better than ever after an update from Porsche. Porsche has unlocked more efficiency by refining its own software. That’s pretty awesome […]

    It’s no Gucci Sportabout, but this 1975 AMC Hornet looks like it would be fun to try and save. Especially since it’s ripe for some manner of engine swap that brings power and fun way up. At one point, AMC was popping the 360 V8 in the Hornet, but that’s not what this particular machine […]

Thankfully, the good folks at Lectron shot me a note asking if I wanted to test their V-Box 48amp Charging Station. The answer is yes, and here is how that’s gone so far. Here’s the Lectron Charger for sale on […]

    The 19th season of the Formula Drift Championship surprisingly ended similar to the way it began… with Matt Field’s Corvette stuffed into a wall and a Toyota/Papadakis Racing Driver on top of the box. It started back in April when Toyota debuted the all-new Toyota Corolla GR at Round 1: Formula Drift Long Beach. That’s […]

    The Hoonigan Media Machine is back at it, and this time HHIC Ken Block is back at the wheel. While they made it sound like the Gymkhana franchise was being handed over to Travis Pastrana, it’s clear that there is still some petrol left in Block’s tank. Only this time, there is only electricity, as […]
