Meet Raymond Loewy, the Father of modern Industrial Design as he appeared in 1979 on this excellent 60 minutes video article.
Friday Flashback: this movie about the 1930s’ Chevy Streamliners (Film) is from an era when aerodynamics was more about looks than science.
Nikola Tesla effectively invented the modern era- and this fantastic Tesla Motors commercial, narrated by the man himself, really drives home why the car is named after him.
Triple World Drivers’ Champion Lewis Hamilton gets a lot of praise for his on-track daring and aggressive, wheel-to-wheel driving, but something that’s rarely discussed in most F1 circles is Hamilton’s race. As an American used to hearing about “the first black president” or “the first black astronaut“, I’m surprised there isn’t more discussion about race […]
October 21, 2015 is the day that Marty McFly went Back to the Future- and Toyota is celebrating with this great BTTF tribute video filled with Easter eggs.
In his “Best Of Car Porn” video, JP Kraemer showcases a Tesla P85D. The P85D is certainly the odd one out in his video, which consists of Ferraris, performance BMW M4s, and a Nissan GTR, among other fast cars. He can be seen showing off the shiny new P85D starting at 4:32 in the video below. […]
Getting back to the “Electrifying Transport” panel I moderated during the Renewable Cities Global Learning Forum, this next presentation comes from Eve Hou, regarding “emotive.”
Since not everyone can afford a Tesla Model S P90D, or a Dodge Hellcat, but a great many people who can’t afford them still love them, we occasionally end up with somewhat strange (but endearing) labors of love like the one below. I’m talking here about a video of a drag race between a Tesla […]
By Cynthia Shahan If you don’t have the time in the immediate future to travel Europe, contemplate this brief journey through the eyes of a Nissan LEAF. The electric jaunt shares the 5 “most breathtaking electric drives” in Europe. Pass a few moments from Rieti to Rome (serenely riding from the heart of Italy to the […]
A Stephen Powelson recently created a pretty super video of the Tesla Fremont factory using a Phantom 3 drone. I caught word of the video when Stephen dropped it over in the Tesla Motors Club forum, his first post there. Much of the discussion there tapers off into a discussion on the legality of flying […]
As I just wrote, the terminology I will now use for the Ludicrous Tesla Model S is Tesla Model S P90DL (or if I get lazy, Tesla P90DL… or if I get really lazy, P90DL… or if I get super lazy, L). Moving on… Tesla Motors Club forum member “robertvg” noticed today in a just-released 007 Spectre trailer […]
A German Tesla Model S P85D owner recently had a bit of fun with his kids and wife creating a Tesla commercial of sorts. I think best is just to watch it, but if you are not up for that, I’ll describe and discuss it a little bit below the video. So, basically, Matthias David sets […]
Vintage Vespa scooters are marvelous things. Given a willingness to turn a wrench, some quality oil, and ready access to small parts, an enthusiastic rider can keep their Vespa going a long time. But what if you wanted to take your tiny-wheeled titan around the world? Could you make it?
Ben Affleck is the new Batman. No matter how you feel about that decision, I think you’ll agree that the only chance Affleck has of filling Christian Bale’s colossal Bat-boots is to not even try. Don’t growl like a strep patient. Don’t hit on Anne Hathaway. Don’t crash a Lamborghini. Don’t drive the massive, 8-wheeled, […]
My long-standing claims that the antics of a moped gang (club?) like the Hell’s Satans or Corpses From Hell constitutes “green” news rests on 2 things. First, their bikes get about 100 mpg, which seems like big news in an age when GM is touting 30 mpg cars in its ads. Second, these guys and gals have found a way to make the “green” aspect of their mopeds totally irrelevant – they’re just sweet rides.

This is one sequel where you don’t have to see the first movie, but it certainly helps. Fast forward not too far into the future, and you’ll learn why GM developed the Chevy Volt, the Hell Tesla went through to even get any vehicles delivered to customers, and Carlos Ghosn’s exceptionally bold strategy to beat the competition.
Although we certainly didn’t arrive early enough to be at the front of this joyous funeral procession, I made my way to the front to see the Fisker Karma in action, then turned around and filmed almost the entire length of the parade.
On a typically gorgeous day in Los Angeles, I awoke at “racin’ time” (6am) to meet Harlan Flagg and some of his customers for a Sunday ride. We had a blast tearing through Beverly Hills then past the Tesla dealership and the incoming Fisker dealership en route to Plug In America’s parade in Santa Monica. Once there, I met with EV industry luminaries such as Chelsea Sexton and Ed Begley Jr.
California electric-vehicle manufacturer Epic uploaded a new promotional video yesterday, playing up the off-road capabilities of its AMP electric ATV. In the video (below) a team of environmentally-conscious hunters are enjoying Epic’s ultra-quiet and (therefor) super-sneaky side-by-side when they stumble upon some holographic alien technology lodged inside a human skull, which summons a giant wasp […]
