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...

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

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

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...
