The 1968 Alfa Romeo Carabo Concept Promised the Future, All That’s Left Are Scissor Doors  Dec 3rd, 2015 
Since the dawn of the automobile—or at the very least, the birth of the Curved Dash Oldsmobile in 1901—the industry has drifted toward non-rectilinear shapes. Even the phone-booth-upright Ford Model T featured as many round forms as Henry Ford deemed financially prudent. For those of us born in the 1970s, the angular machines we grew […] 
 
 
Every Fiat-Chrysler Brand Has a New Star Wars–Themed Ad, Watch Them Here [Video]  Dec 3rd, 2015 
With the average attention span of the modern consumer clocking in somewhere in the sub-10-second range, it’s more difficult than ever for marketers to make a lasting impression.

McLaren 675LT Spider: A Full Roof Away From the Original Longtail Concept  Dec 3rd, 2015 
Automakers trading on past racing cars’ provenance is nothing new. Ferrari’s F12tdf trades heavily on the original “Tour de France” endurance racers of the 1950s and ’60s; Ford’s Mustang GT350 recalls the timeless ’60s GT350 Mustangs; and McLaren’s 675LT drawn on the “Longtail” name (LT) applied to the epic F1 GTR race cars of the 1990s. In every case, the […]

Volvo Pits 10,000-Pound FMX Construction Truck Against Sophie, Age Four [Video]  Dec 3rd, 2015 
Volvo’s marketing game for its big-rig trucks is more entertaining than it has any right to be. You’d think it would be difficult to make hauling giant loads, construction-site work, and the like seem interesting. Not for Volvo, of all companies. Having already placed aging action star Jean-Claude Van Damme between two big rigs—doing the splits, naturally—among […] 
 
 
The Tax Man Cometh: These 10 States Charge Extra Fees for Electric Cars  Dec 3rd, 2015 
The freebie-filled joys of electric car ownership are fading fast. Nine states now levy extra registration fees on EVs, and by 2017, Michigan will be the 10th, with a half-dozen more governments seeking to make up for lost gasoline taxes. It’s a cash grab—or rather, some repayment for the free parking, free charging, HOV lane […] 
 
 
Toyota S-FR Racing Concept: Another Face for the Tiny Sports Car  Dec 3rd, 2015 
Until now, we could only refer to Toyota’s S-FR sports-car concept has having a single face.

This Crazy, One-Off Amphibious Corvair Pickup Can Be Yours  Dec 2nd, 2015 
How wild were the 1960s? Not only did automotive giant General Motors launch a whole lineup of air-cooled, rear-engined, flat-six-powered cars, vans, and pickup trucks, but two of its engineers created an amphibious variant. And they almost succeeded in getting it put into production. Witness the Corphibian, a charmingly batty ​one-off that actually seems to have […] 
 
 
On the Ground Like a Stealth Potato: Red Bull’s 4×4 Party Van Is Insane  Dec 2nd, 2015 
Oh, you masterful Austrian tweakazoids.

The gestation of the fully autonomous car is turning up all manner of new hurdles.

Snow-par: Fiat-Chrysler’s Mopar Parts Division Offering Winter-Tire Packages Through Dealers  Dec 2nd, 2015 
We promise that we’re not shills for Big Tire, what with our constant pushing of the benefits of winter tires. There simply isn’t any denying that winter tires enhance vehicle control and safety when temperatures fall below 45 degrees. Even all-season tires’ performance deteriorates at lower temperatures, whereas winter-specific rubber compounds maintain grip in the dry and […]

The Swedes know long, dark winters, and Volvo has just come through an epic one.

Advertising the 1970s: These Car Ads Define a Nation Desperately Trying to Enjoy Itself  Dec 1st, 2015
