The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 23: Death Valley: Dante's View and Badwater Road

Work took longer to get through today so didn't get all my riding objectives accomplished.First, Scarlett and I rode over to Dante's View which is about 13 miles along the Furnace Creek Wash Road.  Nicely paved, very twisty at times and the last quarter mile is pretty steep.  (Sign said 15% slope)You emerge onto a medium sized parking area with an observation balcony.  It's truly quite the view.I elected however to move away from the slight crowds and walked along a ridgeline path down to better...

2019 Mini John Cooper Works: Dodging the Regulatory Bullet

At the very start of 2018, Mini announced an update to its Cooper line. Were it not for their help, plus the marginally tacky inclusion of Union Jack taillights, we’d probably never have noticed the refresh. Now, with 2019 bearing down on us, it’s the John Cooper Works’ turn. Predictably, the JCWs get all of the same […] The post 2019 Mini John Cooper Works: Dodging the Regulatory Bullet appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

An inside look at Rivian’s EV ambitions from AI batteries to electric jet skis

For a CEO who insists his electric vehicle startup doesn’t want to be Tesla, Rivian founder RJ Scaringe can sound a lot like Elon Musk. Just weeks before unveiling Rivian’s first vehicles — an all-electric pickup and a seven-seater SUV — at the LA Auto Show last month, Scaringe promised an impressive new battery technology and speculated about an electric jet-ski. He’s made other bold claims à la Musk, including that his company had developed an artificial intelligence charging system that “allo...

Why American Muscle Might Outlive the Standard American Sedan

Nissan Seeks Trademark for Confusing Model Names, Hints At Future EV Lineup

Luckily for no one, the addition of electric model ranges to various OEM portfolios will only make today’s alphanumeric naming situation worse, including at Nissan. Mercedes-Benz and BMW deserve honorable mentions in this naming crime, but it’s really an industry-wide problem. That brings us to this tidbit: the names IMQ and IMS, which just appeared […] The post Nissan Seeks Trademark for Confusing Model Names, Hints At Future EV Lineup appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Rare Rides: Grab a Pair of Suzuki Jimnys From 1972

The occasionally sane group of people known as Car Twitter elevated the new Suzuki Jimny to superstar status recently, as soon as it debuted in its home market of Japan.

Ford’s Bronco: Not So Global After All

Relaunching the Bronco is a no-brainer for North America. With credits like Longmire and the O.J.

Competition Hot: A vintage-style Harley ironhead

Trends ebb and flow in the custom world. And with them, the fortunes of bike builders. It might be tough at the top, but it’s even harder to stay there over the years. Japanese builder Hideya Togashi is a man with more staying power than most. He took his first Best Of Show award from Mooneyes in 2006, and he’s collected several more over the years. And if you look closely at his latest Harley ironhead build, it’s easy to see why he is so fêted. Togashi-san runs Hide Motorcycle (pronounce...

Could a Triumph Factory Custom Rocket III be Coming?

Don’t Bet Against It We reported on the fact that the first Triumph Factory Custom (TFC) will be a Thruxton R TFC and will come out in January of 2019. In that article, we also mentioned the possibility of the next TFC build being a Rocket III. But could that really be the case? You betcha. Triumph has a new Rocket III coming out in 2019. It’s been a decade since the last model first graced us with its somewhat odd but likable presence, and frankly, it’s due for an overhaul. It would be smart f...

Uber Advanced Technologies Group has officially resumed on-road testing of its self-driving vehicles in Pittsburgh, nine months after the company halted its entire autonomous vehicle operation after one of its vehicles struck and killed pedestrian Elaine Herzberg in the Phoenix suburb of Tempe. The relaunch follows the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation decision to authorize Uber ATG to put its autonomous vehicles on public roads.

With Ghosn’s Release Seemingly Imminent, Nissan Tries to Keep Him From Going Home

Detained in a Tokyo jail since his Nov. 19 arrest, Renault CEO and former Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn could soon find himself out on bail. A Tokyo district court has rejected an appeal aimed at keeping Ghosn in detention, meaning Christmas might be brighter for the auto industry titan than previously thought.
