Harley-Davidson Shows Off Its Electric Concepts In Action

Harley Looking Ahead Harley-Davidson made a big effort towards the future with its new LiveWire. However, that bike hasn’t been very well received. Most people aren’t impressed with the range or price. Basically, $30k is a lot to ask for a motorcycle that only goes about 100 miles per charge. Harley showed off two other bikes when it debuted the LiveWire. Two smaller concepts and now there’s video.  At the X Games in Aspen, Colorado, the company brought its two small concepts along and let some...

Ceramic Pro Nano Coating for my S240

I confess, I’m a guy with way too many hobbies, and perhaps uninterestingly, driving happens to be one of them.

See Rock City Barns

While riding in North Carolina and Tennessee last fall, I saw three See Rock City barns – one of which was entirely serendipitous. Isn’t it funny how that happens? Something becomes of interest to you and it begins to show itself in unexpected places – sometimes on a path which you’ve already trod. Maybe my more »

Seeking to Boost the Taycan’s Competitiveness, Porsche Promises 62 Miles in Four Minutes – for Free

Well, “free” under certain circumstances. We’re referring to the cost of recharging Porsche’s upcoming electric super sedan, and we’re certainly not referring to the time it takes to reach triple-digit speeds.

An Auto Auctioneer's Brilliant Way of Quickly Getting Snow Off of Cars

With Winter Storm Jayden currently bearing down on parts of the U.S., plenty of motorists will soon need to sweep the snow cover off of their cars. An easy task if you've got a small hatchback, not so easy if you've got a tall SUV. While most of us have got some kind of snow brush, the State Line Auto Auction in Waverly, New York has a clearly superior method: Some troll of course left a comment suggesting this must damage the cars. "No," explains SLAA employee Paul Barber, who posted the ...

Vintage Indian Motorcycles and Memorabilia Brings Small Fortune at Mecum Auction

A Scrapyard Full of Treasures After Rick Jensen passed away, one of the best collections of Indian motorcycles and memorabilia was found at his business, RJ&C Metal Fabricators in Phoenix, AZ.

Porsche Taycan owners will get three years free charging at hundreds of Electrify America stations

Owners of the upcoming Porsche Taycan will get three years of free charging at hundreds of Electrify America public stations that will blanket the U.S. in the coming months.

Rare Rides: The Sports-Luxury 1966 Jaguar S-Type 3.8

Long before the Ford-based retro throwback began showing up on dealer lots, Jaguar produced a contemporary and modern sedan called the S-type.

Is the Base Nissan Leaf Plus the Stripper That Goes Farther?

First off, we could debate whether a true “stripper” vehicle even exists in this era of generous standard content; arguably, my Chevrolet Cruze L doesn’t even make the cut — though one peek at the headliner material suggests otherwise. But I digress… Certainly, the upcoming Nissan Leaf Plus is not the starting point of the […] The post Is the Base Nissan Leaf Plus the Stripper That Goes Farther? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Buyers Take a Sienna Siesta, but Toyota Isn’t Losing Sleep

Twenty-one years after Toyota replaced the alluring Previa with a new, more conventional people mover, the Sienna minivan finds itself falling out of favor among American buyers.

Is a Suzuki Twin-Turbo Motorcycle on the Way?

A Forced Induction Force to be Reckoned With Back in the good old days of 2013, Suzuki showed off a new concept bike called the Recursion which featured a turbocharged system.

The patent application was for the frame, but what makes this frame special is the application of the turbocharged XE7 engin...
