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...

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...

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...

Pants… I mean “PINKS” Party

Pants… I mean “PINKS” Party

So the Mahdavi Motorsports guys got on PINKS, right. And it aired last night... so they had a little get together at the shop and we all watched it together. Mahdavi was sporting the Yellow 2JZ Cressida. Looks about as sexy as a taxi cab... but it took down two...
