An Emergency Battery/Starter for your Car

Murphy’s Law dictates that dead batteries always fail at the worst possible time and place. We’ve all had a dead battery surprise us in our car.  There’s nothing worse than when you’re running late, you get into your car, attempt to start it, and instead of the engine happily springing into life as commanded, there’s nothing more than a sluggish groan and – even worse – possibly the clacking of the starter motor relay opening and closing.Hopefully, when such a misfortune befalls us, we’re not fa...

How Seriously Should We Take Trump’s Mexican Auto Tariff Threat?

On Thursday, President Donald Trump threatened to impose tariffs on cars entering the United States from Mexico if the nation doesn’t assist Washington in dealing with the migrant situation at its southern border. It’s a rather bold ultimatum, coming hot on the heels of claims that the White House was seriously considering closing the border […] The post How Seriously Should We Take Trump’s Mexican Auto Tariff Threat? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Judge to SEC and Elon Musk: Put your ‘reasonableness pants on and work this out’

Tesla, Elon Musk and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission have two weeks to work out their differences and come to a new resolution, a U.S. judge said Thursday at the conclusion of a hearing held to determine whether the automaker’s CEO should be held in contempt for his Twitter use. The SEC had asked the court to hold Musk in contempt for violating a settlement agreement reached last October over Musk’s now infamous “funding secured” tweet. Under that agreement, Musk is supposed to...

Attention, Plebs: New Cars Are Becoming Prohibitively Expensive

As new vehicle prices continue to climb, many wonder how high MSRPs can go before the public decides to take a pass — assuming they haven’t already.

BMW Won’t Drop Its V12 Until at Least 2023

With environmentalism gradually neutering the internal combustion engine, small motors are increasingly cropping up in cars they seemingly have no business in. While that’s partly the fault of there being so many gigantic automobiles on the market, at least historically speaking, none of it would be possible without increasingly stringent fuel economy mandates. As emission […] The post BMW Won’t Drop Its V12 Until at Least 2023 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Ready to race: A custom KTM 950 Super Enduro

In the hands of an experienced or brave rider, this custom KTM 950 is probably one of the fastest A-to-B motorcycles we’ve ever featured. Especially over mixed terrain. It’s based on the short-run Super Enduro model, a bike described by Red Bull Romaniacs legend Chris Birch as “the best hooligan’s bike KTM ever made.” In some countries, you’ll spend more than the original showroom price to get your hands on a mint condition 950 SE. So it’s not surprising we don’t see many custom versions. ...

Tesla’s Balloon Bursts in Q1; Deliveries Impress No One

Following a rocky first quarter of 2019, Tesla’s decidedly lackluster production and delivery report sent the automaker’s stock tumbling in pre-market trading. Not only were analyst estimates missed, in some cases by a mile, production actually fell at Tesla’s Fremont, California assembly plant, sparking concern that demand is drying up for the company’s EV offerings.
