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...

Undoing the Wrongdoing

Cory Dahlgren is an unpredictable guy. The sort of unpredictable - where a Honda is built in the back of a Toyota dealership by a former Subaru and Volkswagen mechanic. The brand of unpredictable - that dailies a slammed-out S2000… and keeps the Civic hatch as the...

Club Dred: 1981 MK1 Volkswagen Rabbit GTI

Today’s import scene finds itself littered with cars - that are built just to snag a moment in the limelight. They get their features… whether it is on a large-scale website or in a publication. And then, just like that, they are dismantled, parted out, and forgotten...

Swedish Sweetballs

Unfortunately, on some small scale… some very very small scale… I can relate to Zeke’s situation now. Or maybe it’s better to say that I still can’t relate at all. But at least I have adequate compassion for his situation now. See – Zeke is paralyzed from the waist...

At Some Point…

Judging by Enjuku’s usual clientele and reputation as a 240 hub, this Genesis looks a bit out of place. One could chalk this build up to some KDM affirmative action plan— a car given to Enjuku as a dollar-car on pretense of whoring the Hyundai name… lugging it from...

Be Your Own

I feel like this car sets some trends, and I think it’s maybe a new direction in this culture, and on its own curve. See – for some reason, the people in the import scene are always their own worst enemy. We’re all copycats when it comes to styling… and playing out...

Mastered at 10k

    I've known Tommi for a long time. Almost a decade. At times, knowing him has been frustrating… at least when it comes to the car scene. Tommi has always been the guy with the coolest shit. No matter if it’s a big-dollar car that he's building, or a...

Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle…Yeah!

The SEMA Show is where the aftermarket industry goes to hard park. It’s a lot of glamor, a lot of indulgence, a lot of excess, a lot of stardom, a lot of big egos, and a lot of big time showin’ off… with a lot of money to back it up. On one hand, it’s the coolest...

Silly Rabbit! …VR6 are the shiz!

This is a pretty good story. Because it shows the evolution and progression of this culture. I hate to sound cliché… but it shows what we can do if we all put our minds to it. As an editor – this is right up my alley. It’s what I look for… it’s what I want to see...

Alright get this – I didn’t talk to this guy Gerald for a super-long time. But I did study him while we talked. And I did watch some videos online of his crew. And what I saw was – comfort. These guys are comfortable in their own skin. They’re cool with being who they...
