    Chrysler Imperial Parade Featured on ‘Jay Leno’s Garage’ (Video)

    It’s been a hot minute since Jay Leno addressed the citizens of Burbank, CA from a dignitary position, but on the most recent episode of his web series Jay Leno’s Garage he got to step back into a position of authority, at least in automotive form. That’s because the episode features a Chrysler Imperial Parade, […]

  • Steve McQueen’s 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera Up for Auction

    Steve McQueen’s 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera Up for Auction

    Legendary movie star Steve McQueen was (and still is) as famous for his association with classic cars as for his acting prowess. So when a car actually owned by the late actor goes up for auction, it’s a big deal, and even more so when it was the last ever vehicle special-ordered by him – […]

    James Bond and other fictional heroes have had cars that can be controlled without the advantage of sitting in the driver’s seat for decades now, but real life is taking a while to catch up. We might be getting there soon, though, thanks in part to the unveiling of prototype Land Rover Autonomous Car Technology, recently posted […]

    Ferrari Land: Ferrari Theme Park Begins Construction

    Believe it or not, there’s actually going to be a Ferrari themed amusement park open to the public. And that’s not an analogy for some museum or Ferrari dealership, but an actual amusement park, with rides and attractions, as part of the PortAventura theme park in Barcelona, Spain. It’s called Ferrari Land, and construction on it […]

    New from Howe & Howe is an off-road vehicle that you will almost certainly never get to drive, unless you’re either very lucky or very wealthy (or both). It’s the Ripsaw EV2, billed by its makers as a “luxury super tank” and the “fastest dual tracked vehicle ever developed.” The Ripsaw EV2 doesn’t have the big front-mounted cannon […]

    1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Roadster Hitting Auction Block

    One of the most coveted automobiles of the past quarter century (or more) would have to be the 1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Roadster, in part because there were only a total of six of them made. Now, the very first one is set to hit the auction block later this month, where it’s expected to […]

    When people talk about “off-road capabilities,” they’re generally referring to hills, sand, or otherwise rough terrain, and not under any circumstances water. But a new line of vehicles from Gibbs is adding water travel to its already impressive list of rugged travel utilities, and it has a cool name to boot – Gibbs Amphitrucks. One […]

  • JetCart: Jet-Powered Go-Kart by Colin Furze (Video)

    JetCart: Jet-Powered Go-Kart by Colin Furze (Video)

    A guy named Colin Furze apparently had some time to kill, so instead of doing laundry or tidying up the kitchen he designed a fire-breathing, jet-powered go-kart called the JetCart (or, alternatively, the JetKart). That added power gives the vehicle enough speed to keep up with regular cars, but it’s really its visual component that’s the most impressive. The […]

    Atlanta, Georgia has been Porsche’s North American home for decades now, but the relationship has been kicked up to the next level thanks to a couple newly completed projects. It’s the Porsche Experience Center, a kind of museum and theme park for Porsche diehards attached to their new Porsche North America Headquarters. The whole thing cost […]
