Video: Tesla Slams Into Overturned Truck in Probable Autopilot Failure

A Tesla Model 3 became one with an overturned box truck in Taiwan on Monday, raising another red flag for advanced driver-assist features.

Rebounding Premium Rides Can Only Do So Much to Budge a Flat Market

The new vehicle market has stopped marching. For three weeks in a row, sales in the U.S. plateaued, mirroring COVID-19 case levels in many locales.

Dr. Skin: An S&S bobber built for a dermatologist

Like many accomplished customizers, Martin Becker has lived an eventful life. For almost twenty years he’s been building bikes in the beautiful ancient city of Heidelberg—and petrol has been coursing through his veins since he got his first moped at the age of 13. At 16, he started an apprenticeship as a motorbike mechanic, but his love affair with two wheels was interrupted by travels through India, Burma, Nepal and Thailand. Martin rode through south India for weeks on a rented 500cc Bul...

Course Change for Infiniti As Nissan Throws Out Old Playbook

The course Infiniti plotted to guide it safely through the 2010s met with bad weather and hidden shoals, leaving Nissan’s premium division idled and taking on water.

BMW Motorrad Celebrates 40 Years of the GS

BMW Has Been Making GS Motorcycles For Decades Of all of BMW’s bikes, the R 80 GS might be the most important. It’s the bike that essentially created the adventure-touring segment. When it came out, it was a bit of an odd duck, but that was partly because people didn’t realize that by compromising a little bit on some things, you actually gained so much more. The R 80 GS started something new and different, and BMW is celebrating 40 years since it came out.  Since that very first GS, BMW’s adve...

No doubt due to the huge quantities sold during the Pinto/Bobcat’s 10-year […] The post Junkyard Find: 1977 Mercury Bobcat 3-Door appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
