Tesla Is Using Augmented Reality Technology To Improve EV Production test 1-1

Tesla has always been a company known for being a leading figure in innovation, thanks in part to its Model S sedan, as well as its novel direct sales approach. However, according to a new report, Tesla has managed to become a triple threat of innovations when it comes to vehicle production, which could have implications for its upcoming volume entry, the Model 3 sedan.

A rolling Moss gathers $2.6M in stones at Bonhams' all-Benz auction test 1-1

Bonhams held its appropriately named “The Mercedes-Benz Sale” at just about the best place on Earth they could have—the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany—on March 19, and it was packed with the swoopy, super-expensive 1930s models that made the brand the luxury powerhouse it is today.

Problem is, none of them sold.

Alfa Romeo Unveils Giulia and Giulia Ti test 1-1

When the range-topping Giulia Quadrifoglio first made its debut, the 505-horsepower M3 fighter previewed what was in store for the newest Alfa Romeo sedan but did little to reveal what the more mainstream versions would look like. The Italian brand has rectified this omission with the unveiling of the base Giulia and Giulia Ti models ahead of their debut at the 2016 New York Auto Show.

Thundertaker custom Cadillac hearse test 2

Not that many people say this very often, but it's probably a good thing that I'm not rich. I would, naturally, spend a large amount of my money on cars, which is not a bad thing, it's just that the cars I'd spend money on wouldn't exactly endear me to the rest of my family.

Granted, having the world's largest collection of station wagons wouldn't be the worst thing for them to inherit, but even with the recent—and forecast—increase in values for wagons, chances are that they'd just break even if they sold the lot.

Review of the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V: Battle for the Belt!

Review of the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V:  Battle for the Belt! test 1-1

When it comes to creating the ultimate sports sedan, we have to admit that BMW has essentially had the market cornered since the turn of the century. The M5 has, plainly and simply, blown the doors off just about any and ever competitor that has tried to touch it since the E39 chassis stormed onto the scene in 2000 with a 394-horsepower rip-roaring V8 and six-speed manual. Some cars have come close to its performance, but none have been able to capture that mystical M gestalt; not AMG, not the V line, and nothing even close from the Japanese markets. However, for 2016, Cadillac—of all manufacturers—just may have created a car that could unseat the venerable M5 as world champion. The new CTS-V just may be the baddest four-door sedan in the world, and it has its sights set on Munich.

Gooding & Co.'s Amelia Island auction sells seventeen of Seinfeld's finest for $22,244,500 test 1-1

I've never understood the fascination people have with Porsches, and I'm apparently not alone. Hell, the world is filled with idiots that don't even know it's pronounced poor-SHA. (And that's everywhere, every time, jerks. No exceptions.)


Review of the 2016 BMW M2: An Investment In Excitement!

On: Fri, Mar 11, 2016 at 12:49PM | By: Lou Ruggieri


The 2016 BMW M2 test 2

Over the course of even just recent history, it has been made pretty clear that numbers can be misleading. Ask those wonderful folks over at companies like Enron, Worldcom, or Tyco about how to make numbers look better or worse. Or maybe even more recently than that, see what the chairmen of any of the major banks across the US had to say about how to make numbers mislead people in the early 2000s for things like a mortgage, for instance. Of course, those numbers were intentionally misleading, and with very malicious intent in mind, but then there are other numbers out there that can also be misleading, but in a way that might surprise people in a positive way. One such example is the 2016 BMW M2. At first glance, one might be inclined to believe that just by the numbers, the M2 would naturally just be half of what the top-flight M4 is for its driver. While that math does work out, the actual application of that theory couldn't be farther from the truth.
