New Order -- 'Bizarre Love Triangle'

New Order -- 'Bizarre Love Triangle'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast, and we’ll provide the jams.

I’ve got triangles on the brain after last night.

The Tesla Cybertruck Is A Brutal, Angular Beast With Unbelievable Specs

The Tesla Cybertruck Is A Brutal, Angular Beast With Unbelievable Specs
Truck Yeah The trucks are good!Prev NextView All

What’s the next big thing for electric vehicles? Probably pickup trucks. Ford is doing it and so are startups like Rivian. But Elon Musk isn’t about to be outdone, and tonight at the Tesla Design Center in Los Angeles, the electric automaker unveiled something truly different.

Maybe even too different, depending on how it looks when it...

What Do You Want To See From Tesla's 'Cybertruck' Event Tonight?

What Do You Want To See From Tesla's 'Cybertruck' Event Tonight?

Here’s what we know: Elon Musk loves Blade Runner, and that is why he has chosen tonight to unveil something called the Cybertruck. And we’ve seen—if you can call it that—some very vague and murky teaser shots of... something. Beyond that, we have few solid details about what Musk is up to tonight. So what do you want to see from this event?

I’m not convinced the Cybertruck, if it even keeps...

I'm Intrigued By This Possibly Alfa 4C-Based Maserati Sports Car Prototype

We find ourselves in an odd time when automakers are putting out their own camouflaged “spy shots” of prototype cars to drum up pre-release hype. As an editor, I’m fine with this; it’s less freelance money I have to spend buying photos. But it is a bit of a strange practice, and most of the time I don’t really care. Unless it’s a new sports car from Maserati that seems to have very familiar...

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 Is A 603 Horsepow—Oh My God, Look At Those Wheels

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 Is A 603 Horsepow—Oh My God, Look At Those Wheels

The last thing the world probably needs is a go-fast crossover, but that’s what the people demand, and so that’s what we are getting. At the LA Auto Show yesterday, we were introduced to the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63—the AMG-ified version of Benz’s biggest and most luxuriant crossover. It has 603 horsepower, a 48-volt electrical system and... wait. Wait. Good Lord, those wheels!

The 2020...

“Wait a minute. Holy shit,” I said out loud in near-total disbelief as I walked up to my friend and Jalopnik contributor William Clavey as he started up the new BMW M235i Gran Coupe . I was not expecting a bellowing and cracking exhaust note I could hear from 20 feet away. “That was you? That’s what it sounds...

If you need a palate cleanser after today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe and the interesting but visually questionable Mustang Mach-E, how about the new California Special? Seems appropriate for the LA Auto Show.

We live in an era when 500 horsepower is no longer the exclusive purview of supercars. This isn’t a bad thing. There’s more performance out there than ever before, and it’s more accessible than it’s ever been. And this trio represents the really diverse ways to get to 500 horses.

It’s been too long since we’ve had some City Pop on the Jams. But next week is the LA Auto Show, so here’s a tune that’s perfect for California cruising—no matter what language it’s in.

Mustang Mach-E: Ford's 'Mustang-Inspired' Electric Crossover Gets A Name

Ford has been saying its new electric crossover is “Mustang-inspired” since last year’s Detroit Auto Show . And with the official name, they really, really went there.

The battery-powered performance crossover will be called the Ford Mustang Mach-E, complete with the pony logo and everything. It’s not so much “Mustang-inspired” as it is an official, legit member of the Mustang family. Just...

The Toyota Camry And Toyota Avalon Are Getting All-Wheel Drive

Though crossovers and SUVs dominate the new car market as the Sedanocalypse closes in around us, some four-door cars will always be fine. The Toyota Camry is one of them. It may have lost its U.S. sales crown to the RAV4, but no one should worry about its future. Especially after today, when Toyota announced it should get better at handling poor weather.

You Bought The Wrong Toyota 4Runner

You Bought The Wrong Toyota 4Runner

I bought a Toyota 4Runner recently. I haven’t written about it yet because it’s hardly the most exciting thing in the world, but so far I like it a lot. It’s a 2002, a Limited, it has some really great equipment and drives like a nearly new car at 200,000 miles. (This is what happens when you get burned out on old BMWs .)

Thing is, I fucked up. I bought the wrong 4Runner. So did you. We all...

When I spoke to Toyota performance boss Tetsuya Tada at the launch of the 2020 Toyota Supra this summer, I had to ask him the obvious: why not use a Toyota platform and engine for the Supra? Why go with BMW guts for such an important car? Why not—to put it simply—do it yourselves? I wanted to hear his answer,...
