Musk shows off Tesla’s fastest car yet, the Model S Plaid

Elon Musk billed Tesla Inc.’s newest vehicle, the Model S Plaid, as a halo product that proves the superiority of electric cars at an event marking the start of deliveries to customers. “Why make this really fast car that’s crazy fast?” the chief executive officer asked rhetorically outside Tesla’s factory in Fremont, California. “There is something that’s quite important to the future of sustainable energy, which is that we’ve got to show that an electric car is the best car, hands down.” The n...

The Sequel: Another Honda Dominator from HB-Custom

The sequel is seldom as good as the original movie, but the opposite is usually true with custom motorcycles. Taking another crack at a particular platform or genre is a golden opportunity to fine-tune your recipe, or try new things. And if you need proof, Holger Breuer’s latest project offers compelling evidence. It’s based on the venerable Honda NX650 Dominator—and like the Dominator Holger built roughly a year ago, it’s a street scrambler with supermoto underpinnings. The two bikes are qui...
