Elon Musk’s ‘vision for transport’ is a 3D network of tunnels for autonomous electric vehicles

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk’s vision of an “entirely new system of transport,” which he unveiled Wednesday night at a splashy event in Hawthorne, California, wasn’t a reusable rocket like the ones he’s building at his nearby SpaceX headquarters. Nor is it an electric vehicle, like the Teslas he is producing at a factory in Fremont, California. Tonight, Musk showed off a 1.14-mile test tunnel — that snakes its way underneath 120th Street in the city of Hawthorne — that his other busines...

There's Speculation that Apple is Designing a Car—Here's What We Think the "iCar" Experience Will Be Like

News broke yesterday that Apple hired yet another Tesla designer to join their design team, bringing back previous speculations that Apple is working on designing a car. Based on design decisions made by Apple in the past, we've put together our best guess at what the "iCar" experience might be like: iCar is autonomous, but in order to brake or turn, you need to say "Hey Siri, brake" or "Hey Siri, turn left". Siri doesn't often hear or listen to you, but when she does it's quite a seamless ex...

VW's Super Cool Hidden Trailer Hitch

This year I bought a car, an all-wheel-drive Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. It's capable around the farm and has decent storage capacity; I've carried 10-foot-long PVC pipes in it with the hatch shut, and below I'm getting rid of an eight-foot children's slide left on the property by a previous tenant. Still, it's no substitute for a pickup truck. I'd really value having an open bed that I could toss animal cages, runaway geese or firewood into. So I've been looking into buying a trailer. Alas,...

Aston Martin Valkyrie Engine: Your Greatest Dream Or Worst Nightmare

The new Aston Martin Valkyrie engine is a work of scientific art.  The redline is through the roof and the horsepower ratings are off the charts. Developed in conjunction with Cosworth using proven F1 materials and methods. Look, I don’t know what kind of drugs the engine department at Aston Martin is on, but I think they’re close to overdosing in the most positive way possible. Here we have the new V12 for the upcoming, Adrian Newey-designed Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar, and it’s just mind-...

Tesla’s China factory and the missed growth opportunity

Chandrasekar Iyer Contributor Chandrasekar Iyer is a visiting research fellow at the Clayton Christensen Institute and author of Driving Disruption: Catching the Next Wave of Growth in Electric Vehicles. Tesla made its ambition for world domination known when it announced its intention to build a factory in China. The move makes sense — China is the world’s largest automotive market. But it might be shortsighted. By continuing to go after the higher tiers of a...

Shovelhead à la française: Shiny Hammer’s 1972 FLH

Most custom motorcycle builders are pretty handy in other areas of life and work. The ability to set up a lathe or tune an engine lends itself to different fields of craftsmanship. And if you’ve got a knack for aesthetics, you can probably also design (and print) a t-shirt. But one trend that’s caught us by surprise is the number of furniture designers who can also build very classy bikes. One such Renaissance man is Samuel Aguiar of Shiny Hammer, who created the elegant ’72 FLH shovelhead we...

When Cultures Clash: Coach Door Edition Conti Triggers Folks Worried About Suicide

Considering they’re only making 160 of them, the suicide doors on the eighty Coach Door Edition Lincoln Continentals to be sold next year have garnered quite a bit of attention.

It seems that sometime in the 1930s the moniker “suicide doors” was applied […] The post When Cultures Clash: Coach Door Edition Conti Triggers Folks Worried About Suicide appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

QOTD: What’s on Your OEM Wish List?

As we saw yesterday with the (very) limited-edition coach-door Continental, sometimes an automaker finally produces what the people cried out for… years earlier.

Those rear doors are tailor-made for a […] The post QOTD: What’s on Your OEM Wish List? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Toyota Expects a Quarter of Prius Customers to Choose AWD-e, but 25 Percent of Prius Is Not What It Used to Be

As America’s new vehicle market shifts to vehicles with four driven wheels, greater ride height, and dog-friendly tailgates, it seems more than sensible for the Toyota Prius to take part in some community outreach.
