Apple wants to control your car

It's not enough that most of us stare at an Apple computer for 12 hours a day. And it's not enough to have an Apple iPhone in our pocket at all times nestled up close to our giblets listening to our conversations. Or... an Apple watch on our wrist monitoring our heart...

Oof it’s gone viral. GR86 warranty claim denial

Toyota is in some steamy hot water with enthusiasts over their new, highly anticipated GR86. And while Toyota has a great history of reliability AND great relationships with customers... maybe they do deserve some flack for this one. Here’s the bullet points of the...

Sinh’s Evo 8 & Dan’s Supercharged 350Z

By God, we got a couple race cars on our hands! A couple weekends ago, I was invited to a hangout by my good friend Sinh (who a few of you probably remember from the cover of issue 55). It was at our friend Dan's house. It ended up being more of his kids birthday...

Tesla on autopilot kills motorcyclist

A motorcyclist was killed recently when a Tesla on autopilot rear-ended him. The tragic news brings up 2 discussion points: 1) There's no shortage of bad drivers out there, but... Hell even the most capable drivers make errors. It's called 'being human'. But that's...

Ford & GM tackle crazy markups

In case you haven't been in the new car market and/or paying attention, the entire playbook for 'new car buying' has changed drastically in the past couple years. And if you're a car enthusiast who wants one of these more exciting specialty vehicles... it's become...

Brembo just laid a whopper on us – and it’s called Sensify

Hory shet Brembo may have just honestly revolutionized automotive brakes! The Brembo Sensify brake system uses electronic parts, instead of hydraulic parts. So instead of pads clamping onto the rotors through hydraulic pressure like they pretty much always have for...

Mo’ Money Mo’ Money – Porsche increases profit on EVs

I read an article on The Drive last night, where Porsche CFO, Lutz Meschke, spoke on how they can make even more profit with EVs than with internal combustion engines. He mentioned that while EV costs will eventually drop, that won’t necessarily be reflected in the...

Ok Boomer – so long & thanks for all the cars

To me, “OK BOOMER” comes across a derogatory, dismissive, blatantly stereotypical comment… spawned from a generation that demands tolerance. So I’d like to quickly point out the irony as it pertains to car culture. Because it seems like the generation that mocks...

NASCAR electrified??

Apparently NASCAR is considering an electric version of the Gen-7 chassis. This could come as early as 2023 to the Busch Lights Clash? As far as S3's concerned, it truly is a forward-thinking vision from NASCAR! NASCAR fans have long needed a break in the action to...

2023 Honda Civic Type-R

The 2023 Honda Civic Type-R has been revealed. You can love it, hate it, or be indifferent... but here's what we know so far. This will be the most powerful Honda that's ever been sold in the states. We also know that it set a FWD production car lap record at Suzuka...

Roads? Where we’re going…we don’t need roads

When I say ‘Wagovan’, most of us all have the same exact picture pop up in our heads these days. We picture a Wagovan – slammed, stanced, fresh paint, with a bike rack, maybe a rusted hood, and a woodgrain steering wheel… sitting at Eibach or Import Alliance. Shit –...

Slammered

What happens when the U.S. goes nearly a decade without an affordable, factory turbo, Japanese sports car? Or better yet, what happens when a relatively affordable, factory turbo, Japanese sports car is offered in the U.S. after nearly a decade? Especially when it has...

Counting Sheep

Things are a little bit different when you’re dealing with a Mitsubishi. With a 90s Honda, for example, the car came from the factory as kind of a minimalist car. Lightweight, agile, and bare-bones. Not a lot of bells & whistles. And the great thing about that is...

Over The Top

Since the dawn of time, when it came to building a 4-cylinder powered true sportcompact, Detroit’s ‘Big 3’ have always fell flat on their faces. They just never quite got it. Sure we saw come mediocre attempts, but they still ended up being the end of every import...

Rowdy Hour

It was hot as shit out. The kind of hot that makes your balls stick to the inside of your knee. Alex and I were both hanging out inside his car on pit row inside Nashville Super Speedway. The car that had been staged in front of us was now fading into the left sweeper...

Viva Hood

This car is not for everyone. It’s not gonna be for most people. Does best always have to do with nicest. In some cases – yes. We should be able to look at something that is finished and flawless, and admire it. But if, as a culture, that is the only path that we are...
