  • Tesla Model S Takes on Corvette Stingray at the Strip  (Jan 29, 2014) I defy anyone to tell me that there is no torque on a Tesla's electric motor if you are the one holding the rotor from turning while it has full juice applied to it.
  • Tesla Model S Takes on Corvette Stingray at the Strip  (Jan 29, 2014) Torque certainly can exist without the electric motor turning, provided a force exists that prevents the rotor from turning.
  • This is Probably the Dumbest Way to Get Banned From Driving  (Jan 07, 2014) He is very likely steering the car with the top of his knees. Don't tell me you've never done this. This was common practice for me back in the day after hitting a drive thru for a full meal deal.
  • BMW Loses U.S. Luxury Sales Crown to Mercedes-Benz  (Jan 06, 2014) I find this design very busy, yet also very boring.
  • First Production LaFerrari On Sale for 2.38M Euros  (Jan 02, 2014) I like this car very much, but the name LaFerrari doesn't do it for me. Thanks to the prefix "La," the name is technically feminine, yet I'm pretty sure this car is marketed primarily to men. I believe there's a lot in a name.
  • Car Mod Atrocities: Part VIII  (Jan 02, 2014) What are the odds that the vehicle depicted here would pass a California emissions test?
  • Car Mod Atrocities: Part VIII  (Jan 02, 2014) (Unless, of course, it's a body on frame. I can't tell from the pic.)
  • Car Mod Atrocities: Part VIII  (Jan 02, 2014) The roof and c-pillar on that car were integral to the unibody's strength and rigidity. I wonder if the fabricator took into account any modifications required to keep it from folding up on itself.
  • Horsepower-Fest On The Highway  (Jul 24, 2013) The former is "the smart way." The editors must have meant the latter.
  • Toyota Unveils 2014 4Runner  (Apr 29, 2013) Automotive journalists estimate that Toyota will sell 117 units of this 4Runner in its 1st year.
  • Jaguar Delivers 1st F-Types in Style  (Apr 22, 2013) I suppose that's the best place to put the front license plate? Really?!
  • Red Bull Makes Record Pit Stop  (Apr 05, 2013) I'll look for a uncut shot on YouTube.
  • Red Bull Makes Record Pit Stop  (Apr 05, 2013) Why? Because it is physically impossible for the front jack man to get from the position in the last frame of the 1st angle, to the 1st frame of the 2nd camera angle in that time.
  • Red Bull Makes Record Pit Stop  (Apr 05, 2013) Me thinks there were a few frames dropped between camera angles.
  • Red Bull Makes Record Pit Stop  (Apr 05, 2013) Well, David, that depends. If you're floating a super dry, high pressure air biscuit that has been brewin' for a while, then yes, you are right. But if you squeak out a 1 piece chopper, then I argue that changing 4 tires will take longer.
  • Acura Reveals New MDX in NY  (Mar 28, 2013) This looks like a refresh, not a new model. Come on.
  • Subaru WRX Concept Revealed Early  (Mar 27, 2013) A little busy on the side, front is aggressive - not too bad.
  • Hamilton Drives to the Wrong Home  (Mar 26, 2013) And not to spark up an argument, but a NASCAR buddy of mine not only claims that NASCAR is more fun to watch, but he also claims that NASCARS are better machines than F1 rockets.
  • Hamilton Drives to the Wrong Home  (Mar 24, 2013) These machines are really something else. This is engineering at its finest, on so many different levels.
  • SRT Hits the Track with Viper TA  (Mar 19, 2013) Nice photo. Almost looks like a tornado's a brewin' up there, which symbolizes the pure energy (and perhaps destruction, if in the wrong hands), that this thing can unleash.
  • Black Power Ranger Gets Pulled Over  (Mar 19, 2013) Fake? No way. What gave it away? Was it the lasers?
  • 5 Supercars That Never Made It  (Mar 19, 2013) So Ford had stake in AM, but did not build them.
  • 5 Supercars That Never Made It  (Mar 19, 2013) @Brandon: Aston Martin was never made by Ford. From 1994 to 2007 AM was a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford. A private group somewhat recently bought 90% of AM, leaving Ford with the balance.
  • 5 Supercars That Never Made It  (Mar 19, 2013) Yup, very punny.
  • Glickenhaus Planning New P33  (Mar 19, 2013) @Brendon: If when you say "that's how ya do it," you mean race, I don't agree with you. Road racing is all about traction (for accelerating, cornering, and braking). With even 1 tire off the tarmac for an instant, traction is compromised.
  • 2014 Mercedes S-Class Caught Naked  (Mar 18, 2013) The crease at the bottom of the doors also seems to be a bit much, but it at least carries to the rear bumper.
  • 2014 Mercedes S-Class Caught Naked  (Mar 18, 2013) The crease that spans both doors (the upper one) seems a bit out of place - as though it starts and ends without visual purpose.
  • 2014 Mercedes S-Class Caught Naked  (Mar 18, 2013) That's a nice looking Hyundai Equus; I thought this article was about the new S-Class.
  • Watch this Corvette and Gallardo Race  (Mar 18, 2013) This is certainly not the car shown in the video. The one in the video does not have a spoiler or the black paint on the bottom of the scoops on the doors.
  • Mercedes Nixes GLK AMG  (Mar 18, 2013) ***yawn***
  • Callaway's Shooting Brake Corvette  (Mar 18, 2013) This is a masterpiece, IMHO. It reminds me a lot of the FF (perhaps too much so), and that's a good thing.
  • 1963 Buick Riviera by Fesler  (Mar 15, 2013) Great car. Love it.
  • Hyundai Previews New Equus  (Mar 14, 2013) Did you assume that it was the lesser distraction type? If so, would your assumption hold up in a court of law?
  • Hyundai Previews New Equus  (Mar 14, 2013) That's what I do, Jason, leave unrelated posts on arbitrary articles all over the blogosphere - it's my full-time job. How do you know what type of HUD is used in this new Hyundai? Was it mentioned in the videos? Did you read about it here?
  • Hyundai Previews New Equus  (Mar 13, 2013) It really boils down to the type of HUD. I should have made it clear that old HUD = distracting, new HUD = much, much less distracting.
  • Hyundai Previews New Equus  (Mar 13, 2013) Jason and Colby, thank you very much for that insightful, personal, and touching commentary on your experience with various HUDs. The information you provided has unequivocally rendered years of studies completely useless.
  • Hyundai Previews New Equus  (Mar 13, 2013) I'll tell you why. Because the driver's eyes would have to continuously refocus between the windshield and 30 metres out, causing eye fatigue and a delayed reaction time to events right in front of the car. That's why.
  • Hyundai Previews New Equus  (Mar 13, 2013) I recall when HUD was all the rage decades ago, but then it was found that unless the display was virtually projected 20 or 30 metres in front of the driver, it was dangerous. Why?
  • Almost Sports Cars: Mercedes-Benz SLK  (Mar 12, 2013) Looks like some 16 year old kid took a can of spray paint to the interior of his 1996 Honda Civic. It is a shame that this came from a factory.
  • Corvette Driver is Lucky to be Alive  (Mar 10, 2013) Well, it looks like his Z06 was due for an oil change anyhow.
  • Corvette Driver is Lucky to be Alive  (Mar 10, 2013) "Really Officer, it was this little sticker that I was trying to read when I made impact. Now when you have a minute, fine sir, please take this EFFING SEMI TRAILER OFF MY EFFING LAP!!!!"
  • Girls of Geneva 2013  (Mar 08, 2013) It looks like she pinching out a hard one.
  • Girls of Geneva 2013  (Mar 07, 2013) Pants, paint, or wrap?
  • Redhead Rides in M3 Drifter  (Mar 06, 2013) Oh man, I can't me enough of the number six either. What are the odds?!
  • Top 5 Porsche Supercars  (Mar 04, 2013) The car depicted in this image looks like a model.
  • McLaren Reveals Production P1  (Feb 26, 2013) The air in the engine bay is warmer than ambient air (assuming the engine is at operating temp), so I believe the air used to cool the brakes is directed through panels under the car, on the side of the car, or both.
  • This Is The 2014 Jeep Cherokee  (Feb 25, 2013) It's not *that* bad. It has grown on me since yesterday.
  • Leno Drives Restored Datsun 510  (Feb 21, 2013) And there's something to be said about tuning a carbureted engine by ear - if you've never done it, I highly recommend you give it a go.
  • Leno Drives Restored Datsun 510  (Feb 21, 2013) I like that this fella kept the car period correct (save for the colour). Too many guys drop SR20s and other FI engines into 510s, and that doesn't sit very well with me.
  • Leno Drives Restored Datsun 510  (Feb 21, 2013) I have a 1970 that I have been restoring since 1999. It has yet to see the road on my watch, but I'm thinking the summer of 2015 will be its time.
  • Rolls-Royce Planning V16 Roadster?  (Feb 19, 2013) Is it BMW who is behind Rolls Royce?
  • Cars & Coffee Meet in Irvine  (Feb 15, 2013) @ Xavier: what you see on the passenger window appears to be a reflection - perhaps of some trees.
  • Cars & Coffee Meet in Irvine  (Feb 15, 2013) Is this the model that was used by Ferris Bueller's buddy?
  • Cars Nobody Asked For: Honda Element  (Feb 14, 2013) I realize that it seats only 4 because of the way that the rear seats are stowed on the rear inside walls, but a vehicle that size should seat at least 5 people.
  • Hyundai Drives on Two Wheels  (Feb 14, 2013) I wonder how difficult it is to do that.
  • Who Made the Best Old Cop Car?  (Feb 11, 2013) @Jerrod: I like the Dukes of Hazzard reference.
  • Unearthed: 1992 Bentley Turbo R  (Feb 10, 2013) @Jason: Yes, I see it. And for the record, that was a very stoner observation to make.
  • Unearthed: 1992 Bentley Turbo R  (Feb 10, 2013) I assume that this thing has Bluetooth, USB, or an iPhone connector.
  • Watch This Idiot Get Towed in a Refrigerator  (Feb 07, 2013) You see a lot of this type of tomfoolery on Speed/Fox's DSW (Dumbest Stuff on Wheels).
  • Watch This Idiot Get Towed in a Refrigerator  (Feb 07, 2013) Well, Nick, that is an equally appropriate title for this article.
  • First Corvette Stingray Ad Airs  (Feb 06, 2013) @ ET = 18s, why would they show the headlight of a Ferrari FF? That's odd.
  • Top 5 2013 Super Bowl Car Commercials  (Feb 04, 2013) I could bearly stand that commercial.
  • Top 5 Tuned Bentleys  (Jan 31, 2013) Too busy IMHO.
  • Top 5 Tuned Bentleys  (Jan 31, 2013) This is very clean. I like it, but I wouldn't drive it.
  • Three Corvette Stingrays Filmed on Public Roads  (Jan 31, 2013) Looks like a Corolla on the left.
  • Three Corvette Stingrays Filmed on Public Roads  (Jan 31, 2013) This is quite possibly the most unappealing rear end of any car I have ever seen. Period. I keep sliding between the black one and the blue one in hopes that it will magically look better, but it doesn't change.
  • Three Corvette Stingrays Filmed on Public Roads  (Jan 31, 2013) With all due respect to fans of the Blue Bowtie, there is something about this model that reminds me of a Cavalier or a Sunfire; it's just an overall look of cheapness. Can't put my finger on it, though.
  • Refreshed XC60 Spied Winter Testing  (Jan 28, 2013) Dear Volvo: If you want to sell vehicles, I believe your time is better spent on a tires-to-roof rack redesign of the XC90 rather than a facelift on the XC60. Please and thank you.
  • Chill Out in a Land Cruiser Ice Sculpture  (Jan 27, 2013) All joking aside, this thing has a cold air intake second to none. (Don't forget to tip your waitresses, aren't they great.)
  • Chill Out in a Land Cruiser Ice Sculpture  (Jan 27, 2013) I took a date out in this vehicle last week, but she gave me the cold shoulder. (Dah dum tssh.) But seriously folks, the A/C in this thing is freezing. (I'm here all week people.)
  • Bentley Reveals 2014 Mulsanne  (Jan 23, 2013) That is some leg room and a half.
  • Bentley Reveals 2014 Mulsanne  (Jan 23, 2013) Too much chrome. In fact, replace all of the chrome with black chrome (including the wheels) and you're good to go.
  • Bentley Reveals 2014 Mulsanne  (Jan 23, 2013) This is a true luxury liner. It is massive.
  • Top 5 F1-Derived Supercars  (Jan 22, 2013) Inspired by F1? This basically *is* an F1 car.
  • All-New BMW M3 Leaked Online  (Jan 22, 2013) And I miss the more inboard placement of the dual exhaust from the E46 M3.
  • All-New BMW M3 Leaked Online  (Jan 22, 2013) I like how a line carries from the tail light all the way to the vent on the quarter panel, creating a scallop through the doors. But I do not like the front.
  • All-New BMW M3 Leaked Online  (Jan 22, 2013) @ Luke: Give the guy a break. The tail lights on the current 3, 5, 6 GC, and 7 series resemble each other quite a bit (especially at first glance).
  • GM Planning BRZ/FR-S Fighter  (Jan 22, 2013) A hatchback would be nice, and it would lean out its profile somewhat.
  • GM Planning BRZ/FR-S Fighter  (Jan 22, 2013) This thing doesn't exactly scream the word lean. It appears to be very heavy and clumsy.
  • Auto Bild Drives a Marussia B2 Prototype  (Jan 22, 2013) If the title image for this article depicts the interior of this car, it appears to use separate buttons to raise and lower the windows. Strange. Either that or this thing has 4 power windows, which doesn't look like the case.
  • Auto Bild Drives a Marussia B2 Prototype  (Jan 22, 2013) At first glance I see a tarantula readying to pounce on its helpless and unsuspecting prey.
  • Top 5 Detroit 2013 Concepts  (Jan 21, 2013) If not aerodynamic load, then some sort of resistance to making the truck move, which of course will decrease fuel efficiency.
  • Top 5 Detroit 2013 Concepts  (Jan 21, 2013) But there is always a trade off, and in this case it will be increased aerodynamic load that would otherwise give the truck better fuel economy.
  • Vantage S Rides on HRE Wheels  (Jan 20, 2013) Please ignore last comment.
  • Vantage S Rides on HRE Wheels  (Jan 20, 2013) Using this image and a few
  • Vantage S Rides on HRE Wheels  (Jan 20, 2013) Great job. These must be the guys who did that baby blue RS5 the other week - they have the same stance.
  • VW XL1 Caught in the Snow  (Jan 20, 2013) The front reminds me of Robocop's helmet.
  • Nissan Confirms Baby 370Z is Coming  (Jan 17, 2013) A 3.5L in the "mini-Z" would put it in a different class/segment from the Toyobaru triplets.
  • 2014 Corvette Stingray vs. New Rivals  (Jan 16, 2013) The position and orientation of the passenger-side holy shit handle is close to that of the e-brake. You know where this is going...
  • 2014 Corvette Stingray vs. New Rivals  (Jan 16, 2013) Do some of you agree that there are a few too many creases on this car, particularly on the hood?
  • Ford Atlas Concept Previews Next F-150  (Jan 15, 2013) So is Ford ditching the F-150 nameplate in favor of the Atlas? I hope not. Perhaps the F-150 Atlas, that works.
  • Chevy Unveils C7 Corvette Stingray  (Jan 14, 2013) Colby, did you hear the latest breaking news from Chevrolet? The Corvette will be discontinued after the 2017 model year.
  • Chevy Unveils C7 Corvette Stingray  (Jan 14, 2013) The rear would be much cleaner if the black housings around the taillights were colour-coded. And the diffuser could stand to look a bit smaller, but I assume it was engineered this way - it has purpose being that tall.
  • Famously Unsafe: Chery Amulet  (Jan 13, 2013) And that line that flows from the bottom of the trunk lid to truncate the top of the rear wheel well is a stroke of automotive design genius. Is this masterpiece designed by Pininfarina?
  • Famously Unsafe: Chery Amulet  (Jan 13, 2013) It's a good thing that the fender gap was kept in check.
  • Mercedes Reveals New E63 AMG  (Jan 10, 2013) I don't like how the space between the 3 lines on the emblem is filled in. That makes it (the emblem), look cheap. But overall the car looks nice.
  • Audi RS5 by TAG and HRE  (Jan 10, 2013) I realize that Pirelli has likely paid to have this sticker on this car for these photos, but I wouldn't rock them.
  • Audi RS5 by TAG and HRE  (Jan 10, 2013) This is pure car porn - at its best.
  • Audi RS5 by TAG and HRE  (Jan 10, 2013) This ranks in my top 3 best looking cars on the planet (IMO, of course). It is perfect. Its aggressive stance with those trademark sexy Audi coupe hips. I find it difficult to express in words how beautiful this car is.
  • Lexus Reveals New IS  (Jan 09, 2013) Cup holders? Cup holders have no place in a car that is meant to be driven hard. So what does this say?
