Of course Coca-Cola’s recent Olympic commercial that featured Americans of all ethnic backgrounds singing “America, the Beautiful” in their native languages drew a lot of negative attention from the horrible, racist s***bag Republitards that make ‘Murica an international laughing-stock. It’s what those people do when they take time off from suppressing their homosexual urges and […]
The state that tried to make accurate predictions about sea-level rise illegal is at it again, making more bone-headed statements through its academic mouthpiece, NC State University. The latest round of crazy-talk comes courtesy of a study that claims electric drive vehicles (a catch-all term used to cover EVs, hybrids, and plug-in hybrids) don’t reduce […]
A recent study has determined that Generation Y, i.e. Millennials, are just as interested in buying new cars as prior generations. The problem is that most 20-somethings can’t even afford to move out of their parents’ house, nevermind take on a new car payment. While this plays against that narrative of a disinterested generation of car buyers, it presents perhaps an even bigger problem; my generation is learning to get along without cars.
There are a ton of reasons why electric cars should be the dominant type of car on our roads — reasons why you should really ditch your gasmobile for an electric car. Some of those reasons would slowly sway portions of the market. But logic doesn’…
USA Today recently asked the car-value “experts” at Kelly Blue Book to do some crystal ball gazing and speculate on the depreciation and resale value of today’s electric cars. That analysis suggests that, despite out-performing the rest of the market, most of today’s plug-in and electric cars will depreciate more dramatically over five years than […]
People like gas-powered cars. Some people like the range and freedom they’re granted by the quick, accessible filling stations. Others- maybe most- just like the fact that they can fill up their car with dino-juice and not worry about it again for a week or so. Is that lazy? Sure it is. Is that what’s […]
After listening to this 3-minute “rant” from PopSci’s Millennial-aged Projects Editor, I feel compelled, as a fellow Millennial, to point out how wrongheaded this rant really is.
That up there is a quote from teabilly wannabe and Texas Congressman Joe “of course he’s from Texas” Barton. It’s from 2005, sure – but I just became aware of it. I’m betting that most of you don’t walk around thinking that this level of stupidity is possible, but it is. I also don’t think […]
The car you see above is the Bugatti Galibier. When it was introduced to the world as a concept back in 2009, it was one of the first high-horsepower, mega-dollar hybrids to break cover. The car itself was classically styled, promised uncompromising luxury and performance, and several miles of utterly silent, zero-emissions, “pure” electric car […]
I’m sure a lot of you will want me to be wrong about this car. I get it. You like the car. You like that it’s a hybrid, and maybe you’ve even found a way to convince yourself that it’s really an EV. It’s a coupe, and coupes are sporty. Besides, Jay Leno likes it, and you think Jay Leno is cool. It’s the Cadillac ELR, and it’s almost here.
A few days ago, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said he plans to take his cars “mirrorless” in the near future, cutting back on the car’s aerodynamic drag by a significant percentage and dramatically improving range – especially at highway speeds. That got me thinking: what if FORD did that?
Back in 1975, 37-year-old Geraldine Elizabeth “Liz” Carmichael launched the Dale on a hopeful public at the LA Auto Show, promising almost 70 mpg, incredible safety, and a low price for her three-wheeler … if only people would invest! Sound familiar? Read on.
Elio Motors’ next payment of three-million USD to Racer Trust – the “old GM” the property liquidation agent selling the old Shreveport GM plant to Elio – is due September 4th … and Paul Elio is asking the people of Shreveport to pony up the funds. They shouldn’t, because Elio’s numbers don’t add up.
As you can probably tell, I’m a big fan of rotary engines. As a fan, I’ve accumulated a wealth of useless opinions regarding rotary engined vehicles that I’ve decided to share with you in the form of a handy-dandy “buyer’s guide” to rotary goodness. Enjoy!
Everyone worth their oxygen has a cause these days. Whether that cause is free expression, clean energy, organic foods, or campaigning against gun violence, Buycott helps you put your money to work to make your voice heard!
The Peraves Monotracer is a sublime exotic that delivers. The Suprine Exodus from Baltimore that made its debut this week does not deliver. It is nothing more than a terribly executed Peraves rip-off that isn’t worth the BMW K1200LT its makers had to cut up to make it with, let alone the ridiculous $55,000 asking price (I know, I thought it was a typo, too). See it here. You will laugh.
