China's $9,000 Electric Pickup Truck is Coming to the U.S.

Pickup trucks are big business in the U.S. Never mind annual statistics, which can be mind-numbing; consider that 6,500 brand-new pickup trucks are sold in America every day. The math shows that Ford sells a pickup truck about every 30 seconds, while GM and Dodge each average roughly one pickup truck sale per minute. (Toyota and Nissan lag behind but are still significant players, together moving about 500 trucks per day.)Is there room for another competitor in this space? China-based Kaiyun ...

Fiat Chrysler Celebrates 35 Years of the Minivan

At this point in history, minivans have become an acquired taste.

However, Fiat Chrysler still gets the minivan and, as a reminder to […] The post Fiat Chrysler Celebrates 35 Years of the Minivan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

This scary TZ750 flat track racer is also street legal

When we were talking to Brad Peterson about his XR750 street tracker a month ago, he let slip that he also had a TZ750 in his garage. And it too was street legal. An explosive Yammie two-stroke with classic flat track good looks is too hard to resist, so we just had to show it. But we’re not sure if we want to ride it: Brad may have balls the size of church bells, but we don’t. The TZ750 was one of the most extreme flat track racers of all time: it was banned after one race win in the mid ...

QOTD: Hot or Cold?

Audi TT 20th Anniversary Edition: The Tradition Continues

The Audi TT 20th Anniversary Edition will receive a limited-production run. Design elements include the original “baseball stitch” and commemorative badging. Available as either a coupe or roadster with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine. I must be getting old. Has the Audi TT really been around for 20 years? Maybe I’d remember that if it had kept some of its original pizzazz instead of slowly fading into “just another sports coupe” territory. Or maybe it would have made more of an ...
