Jeep fans have been clamoring for a V8-powered Wrangler for as long as I can remember.

This vehicle marks the return of a production V8 engine in a Wrangler after nearly 40 years. For millennials and younger Gen Xers, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is the first-ever Wrangler with a standard V8 motor, and what an engine it is. Hemi V8 Rep...

Isle Of Man TT 2021 Is Canceled

Two Years In a Row The world’s oldest sanctioned race, Isle Of Man TT, has been canceled for 2021 due to pandemic complications regarding COVID 19.

This is the first time since World War 2 that the race has been canceled for multiple years in succession. Isle Of Man (the island itself) has imposed some pretty strict laws regarding outsiders visiting the island in hopes to keep it...

Automakers Continue Battling Right to Repair Laws in Massachusetts

Despite Massachusetts voters approving a ballot initiative giving customers and independent repair shops more access to the massive amount of data being tabulated by modern cars by a sizable margin, automakers haven’t given up their unpleasantly consistent opposition to the right-to-repair movement.

R100XE: The BMW R80G/S evolution we deserve

The BMW R80G/S created a new genre of motorcycling when it first appeared, and is considered an icon today. The ‘GS’ designation is still a staple of BMW’s range, but it’s evolved a lot since 1980—both technologically and visually. By 1987, the R100GS already had a very different vibe to its predecessor, and the modern GS machines carry almost none of the original’s DNA. Robert Sabel of Roughchild Motorcycles in California wonders what a modern G/S would look like if that wasn’t the case. Wha...

Nikola shares drop as GM pulls plug on investment deal

GM is backing away from an agreement to take a stake in electric automaker Nikola Corp, marking the collapse of a deal that has been problematic since it was announced just two months ago.

Junkyard Find: 1996 Saturn SW1 Wagon with Manual Transmission

We’ve had back-to-back oddball three-pedal cars in this series (a Suzuki Forenza and non-SHO Taurus), so let’s make it three weeks in a row with today’s Junkyard Find!
