Hot Take: You Probably Wouldn’t Have Wanted the New Ford Taurus, Anyway

There is a market for four-door SUVs with steeply raked rears. Just because you don’t want one and hate the erroneous application of […] The post Because We Can: The German SUV ‘Coupe’ Scene Now Comprises Three Automakers appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe is an exercise in form-over-function design

A Look at Six Car Design Specialties, Part 1: The Stylist

"Just imagine being able to take a thousand different bits of metal; and if you fit them all together in a certain way, and then if you feed them a little oil and petrol; and if you press a little switch; suddenly those bits of metal will all come to life. And they will purr and hum and roar. They will make the wheels of a motor-car go whizzing round at fantastic speeds…."That quote is from Roald Dahl's book Danny, the Champion of the World, where the young car-nut protagonist recounts his fathe...

Noise Cycle’s rad Street Rod 750 tracker gets a revamp

In the world of professional motorcycle racing, development is a constant grind. Hooligan flat track racing is the same. But here, the upgrades are done by racers and builders on tight budgets. Not massive teams of engineers with eighteen-wheeler trucks full of SnapOn tools. So we’re fascinated by the way Scott ‘T-Bone’ Jones of Noise Cycles has rebuilt his fire-breathing Street Rod 750 tracker. It’s the same 2017-spec XG750M he raced with last year—but it’s evolved radically since then. A...

Here’s the Hyundai Tucson N Line Americans Probably Won’t Get

This is certainly *not* the theoretical hot crossover we referred to in today’s QOTD. It’s not hot; rather, it’s merely ever so mildly warmer, in a sense, than a stock Tucson. While Hyundai’s Tucson N Line is a vehicle currently targeted at European buyers, it’s possible the automaker could bring it to America in the […] The post Here’s the Hyundai Tucson N Line Americans Probably Won’t Get appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Speaking against a very high-calibre backdrop at the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center in Lima, Ohio, President Donald Trump turned up the heat on General Motors to do something for the Lordstown-area economy.

WERKING CLASS. Schlachtwerk’s Kawasaki W650 Racer

Written by Marlon Slack Schlachtwerk’s Tommy Thöring is obsessed with the Kawasaki W650. As everyone should be. They’re dead reliable, have handling so neutral it could be described as ‘Swiss’ and look more like a Triumph than a Triumph could ever hope to. If you’re in Germany and you own a Dub you want chopped into something special, it’s Schlachtwerk’s number you’d be punching in your phone.

QOTD: Wishing for Something Hotter?

Once upon a time, the vehicles populating high school and college student parking lots were a rangy mish-mash of beat-up hatchbacks, faded hand-me-down family sedans, the odd minivan (daughters beware!) and the obligatory Mustang or Camaro. Soon, it’ll be a sea of crossovers. Maybe it already is — your author, understandably, doesn’t make a habit of […] The post QOTD: Wishing for Something Hotter? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Could Triumph Be Working On an Electric Trident?

The Resurgence of an Icon as an Electric The Triumph Trident was a high-performance model that helped define the company during the late ’60s and early ’70s. The bike is well-loved by those that remember it. Now it seems there could be a new Trident on its way. According to MoreBikes, there’s a rumor going around of Triumph working on a new Trident, and it’s powered by electricity. This could be awesome. Granted, the rumor from MoreBikes is that there’s a patent for the design floating around o...
