Hyundai’s four-legged car isn’t the future we imagined, but we’ll take it

It’s clear at this point that the future of the automotive world revolves around bleeding edge technology that’s self-driving or, perhaps, even flying. But what if it’s none of those things? What if it’s a car that walks on four legs? Hyundai puzzled CES audiences the world over at this year’s event with a concept that focused on exactly this. It’s on-trend, with an electric power plant. But unlike the Tesla’s of the world, Hyundai’s “Elevate” concept ditches the wheels in favor of four legs cap...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Days 50 & 51 An Unlisted BLM site and Rain

Monday, JAN 14Decided the Painted Rock Petroglyph had become a bit crowded for me as more RVs had taken up residence.During Sunday's riding, I'd found some seemingly suitable spots along Rocky Point Road, on BLM land (according the map provided by allstays.com) with good cell signal.I packed up Uma the URRV and dragging Scarlett along on her trailer, we left the campground and found us a good spot perhaps 5-6 miles west on Rocky Point Road.  Looking east, you can see the hills near the Petrog...

Toyota’s Four-cylinder Supra Staying In Japan For Now

According to the manufacturer’s own Supra-centric website, the four banger will come in two flavors — 255 horsepower with 295 lb-ft […] The post Toyota’s Four-cylinder Supra Staying In Japan For Now appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Riding the RV revolution, Outdoorsy fuels up with $50 million in fresh funding

Outdoorsy is building for the road ahead. The three-year-old company, which connects customers with underused RVs and other trucks big enough to camp in overnight, just raised $50 million in Series C funding led by Greenspring Associates, with participation from earlier backers Aviva Ventures, Altos Ventures, AutoTech Ventures and Tandem Capital. That puts its total funding, in less than year’s time, at $75 million. (We’d separately reported on its $25 million Series B round last February. It...

Cadillac’s CT6 Isn’t As Dead As You Thought

General Motors’ future passenger car lineup might not be as threadbare as initially thought. After sparking continent-wide hair pulling with its decision to shutter three assembly plants and cull six car models in the process, it seems the most prestigious vehicle of the bunch might live on after its plant goes dark. The Cadillac CT6, […] The post Cadillac’s CT6 Isn’t As Dead As You Thought appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

This car-sized two-seater VTOL can take off and land directly in parking slots

The Onyx is the result of a pretty basic demand. The future of flying cars is clearly the VTOL, or the vertical take-off and landing vehicle, and when they do become a norm, they’ll need to follow a set framework to fit into a world that was dominated for a century by four-wheeler cars. For instance, taking a VTOL to the nearest supermarket would mean having to park it in the same car-park as any regular car. That’s why the Onyx is designed the way it is… to provide that seamless transition from...

Don’t Panic About the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Being Automatic Only

Count me among the dismayed that Ford’s new 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 is only available with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. I speculated that Ford made that choice because no human can shift gears faster than the DCT, and because Ford maybe couldn’t find a manual that can handle the estimated torque of the GT500, […] The post Don’t Panic About the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Being Automatic Only appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Sleeper: A subtle Triumph Bonneville from 2LOUD

We’ve profiled 2LOUD’s work for almost two years now. From day one, builder ‘Max’ Yicheng has consistently delivered elegant and harmonious machines from his one-man-shop in Taipei, Taiwan. In fact, his work is so tasteful and restrained, the ‘2LOUD’ moniker borders on ironic. Those are rare traits in today’s custom world, and they’re why we keep a close eye on Max’s output. And this custom Triumph Bonneville exemplifies the 2LOUD ethos. It’s so subtle that you’d be tempted to pass it over—bu...

Fiat Chrysler Worried Government Shutdown Could Delay New Products

NAIAS 2019: Subaru Deems Americans Worthy of Limited-edition S209

Subaru has a history of keeping the good stuff in Japan. Eastward-looking rally enthusiasts clamored in the early ’90s for the turbocharged Impreza WRX. Subaru sent us the naturally-aspirated Impreza 2.5RS in 1998. Once the WRX hit our shores in 2000, we saw the more-powerful WRX STi as the forbidden fruit, not to grace our […] The post NAIAS 2019: Subaru Deems Americans Worthy of Limited-edition S209 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Is Honda Working On Power Steering for a New Bike?

Power Steering on a Motorcycle? Power steering, while ubiquitous on automobiles, isn’t found on motorcycles. At least, not traditionally. It seems that Honda may add a new power steering system to one of its future bikes. According to MoreBikes, Honda recently filed a patent for a new power steering system. This system differs from the one that appears on the new Neo Wing three-wheeler Honda has in the works. That system is larger and just a different setup altogether. From the patent drawings ...
