Rare Rides: Luxurious and Exclusive, the 1987 Pontiac Tojan Convertible

Today’s Rare Ride is largely forgotten. Some call it a “super car,” while others argue over whether it was a kit car or a production vehicle. It seems to be the latter, not that it makes much of a difference 25 years later when so few were made. Come along and learn about Tojan, a […] The post Rare Rides: Luxurious and Exclusive, the 1987 Pontiac Tojan Convertible appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Mini Pacesetter to Debut at Formula E World Championship

Tasked with building something to serve as the official safety car for the 2021 FIA Formula E World Championship, Mini has delivered a vehicle that bridges the gap between the raucous and rowdy John Cooper Works model and all-electric Mini Electric. While one-offs aren’t usually all that interesting to your average consumer, the Mini Pacesetter seems […] The post Mini Pacesetter to Debut at Formula E World Championship appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Are Radar Detectors Legal in 2021? A State-by-State Guide

The short answer is yes; radar detectors are mostly legal in the United States, but there are some exceptions. As for laser jammers, the same is true.

Volkswagen’s Prank Play Presents Problems [UPDATED]

I hope this is the last time I write about Volkswagen’s April Fool’s Day faceplant this week. Really, I do. The clicks are nice, but variety is the spice of life.

2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness: Flexible, Functional & Fun

It’s the perfect recipe.

This new Wilderness trim is the older brother of the Outback pack, and according to Subaru, it’s the most capable Outback yet.

Hyundai Santa Cruz Readies to Kick Some Sand

Honda Japan Officially Pulls The Covers On The GB350

GB350 Touches Down in Japan After all this chatter and multiple (probably 10) news posts regarding India’s wildly successful H’Ness CB350, Japan finally gets its turn… Except this model will be named the GB350 instead. Honda has made some very minor changes to the bike to make it more appealing to the Japanese market. Although the GB is very similar to India’s H’Ness, there are still some minimal changes that make this bike the GB. The GB350 will come in a standard model in addition to the ‘S’ ...

Mega Thumper: Unik Edition scrambles the Suzuki DR Big

The Suzuki DR 800 S Big is the sort of bike no one would design today. It was the thumper to rule all thumpers, with a whopping 779 cc single-cylinder motor, long-travel suspension, a big front wheel and rally styling. That meant it was a little ridiculous, but sort of cool at the same time. Depending on your perspective, the DR Big’s late 80s to early 90s styling is either retro-fabulous, or hasn’t dated well. And while it has something of a cult following, it’s not considered as untouchable...

Kia Debuts 576 Horsepower EV6 GT

[REVIEW] A Tale of Two Tailbags – The Forte 70886 and 70025 Bags from Tex Motor

Overview The Forte 70886 “Sentor” and 70025 (no clever name here) tail bags from Turkish manufacturer Tex Motor are an interesting combination of Italian design and reasonable price. These bags offer two different, but effective approaches to easily add storage to your ride. Ahead we’ll take a look at each bag one after the other starting with the smaller 70025 bag.

The 5 Best Moto Jackets for Hot Weather

You know how the old song goes. “Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun.” Well, we’re here to tell you that there’s a third category that needs to be added here –  motorcyclists. And that’s because ever since ancient Greek soldiers realised that going into battle in loincloths might make you look like a legendary warrior and keep you super cool, it sadly does diddly squat to keep you safe from danger.   Fast forward to the present day and that eternal tug-o-war is still going on.

Biden infrastructure plan proposes spending $174B to boost America’s EV market

Volkswagen Prank Not Just Fun and Games

As you know by now, Volkswagen pulled the wool over the eyes of the automotive media, the business media, and the general public in a terribly executed April Fool’s Day prank over the past few days. The company may have done more than anger a few people — it may have run afoul of regulators. […] The post Volkswagen Prank Not Just Fun and Games appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

QOTD: What to Do With Buick?

Buick is on my brain.

The tourney is one of my favorite sports events of the […] The post QOTD: What to Do With Buick? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Some Tesla cars, including the Model Y Performance, fell behind their EPA range in a new study that even took their safety buffer into account

Tesla CEO Elon Musk. PETER PARKS/AFP via Getty Images A new study by Edmunds suggests that the ranges of Tesla's cars fall below their EPA estimates. Tesla had disputed Edmunds' initial results, so it retested the cars - and got similar findings. Some models don't meet the estimate even when its safety buffer is included. See more stories on Insider's business page. The real battery ranges of Tesla's electric vehicles fall below their official EPA estimates, according t...
