Every 2020 Motorcycle With More Than 200 HP

Two hundred horsepower is a perfectly decent amount for a small family hatchback or even a mid-sized family sedan. It’s absolutely ludicrous to stuff that amount of horsepower into a motorcycle that weighs less than 400 lbs and has a contact patch across two tires the size of a large business card. Yet, such machinery exists. Either through phenomenal engineering or, in once case, attaching a whacking great supercharger to the engine, the once unheard of ceiling of 200 HP has been broken by many...

Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Maurizio Pesce Tesla CEO Elon Musk has had a lot of different cars over the years.  His first vehicle was a 1978 BMW 320i — he paid only $1,400 for it.  At one point, a McLaren F1 was his daily driver, but he totaled it on Sand Hill Road in Silicon Valley in 2000. More recently, he's been driving Tesla cars, like the Model S and Cybertruck. He even sent his Tesla Roadster into space.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

(Infinity and Beyond is a regular bi-weekly column documenting the 25-year filmography of Pixar Animation Studios, film by film. In today’s column, writer Josh Spiegel highlights Cars .) In the early days of 2006, the Walt Disney Company made a dramatic change whose impacts are still being felt today.
