Galpin Motors’ longtime first lady Jane Boeckmann dies at 90

Jane Boeckmann, the first lady of Galpin Motors and matriarch of the Southern California auto-dealership family, has died at age 90, according to family members.

Fine Wolf: A suave SYM 150 commuter from 2LOUD

The definition of a commuter bike varies from the East to the West. In Europe, a prime commuter would be something like a Royal Enfield 650. But in Asia, scooters and tiny singles rule the roost, and companies like SYM make a killing. This right here is an early 2000s-model SYM Wolf 150 Legend. As commuters go, it’s surprisingly attractive, with a pint-sized UJM vibe to it. And as the Taiwanese shop 2LOUD Custom has just shown, it’s ripe for customization too. This isn’t the first time tha...

This Four-Cylinder Boxster Spyder Is Only Available In China For Now

Porsche's four-liter mid-engine drop-top has been a massive international hit for the company. With a reactive naturally-aspirated engine, gobs of torque, a sublime chassis, and open air motoring, it's one of the best sports cars to ever leave the factory. For the Chinese market, Porsche's biggest market, it holds a problem, however. Under China's current automotive sales scheme, any car with an engine displacing between 3 and 4 liters is hit with a 42.12 percent tax. For that reason, the big n...

Bosch sees a place for renewable fuels, challenging proposed European Union engine ban
