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...

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...
