Apple Announces an Overdue iMac Refresh

Apple After nearly two years Apple has updated its iMac line with newer processors and graphics chips as a follow up to its iPad refresh. And just like the new iPad mini, all the changes are on the inside. New Processors and Graphics Chips, Same Case and Prices Apple If you thought Apple forgot about its iMac line, it would be understandable.

FCA Fine Flying Solo, Equally Happy With Help

With Sergio Marchionne gone, most assumed Fiat Chrysler Automobiles would swiftly enact the late CEO’s plan to convince another automaker to partner with the company.

Anglos, Hispanics and the Formation of America

One hundred years before the arrival of the Pilgrims, Mexicans were already here. (With typical dark humor they used to say that when God ordered Fiat lux!, Hispanics were late with the bill for the electric company.) Carlos Fuentes was 10 years old when his father, a Mexican diplomat in Washington, took him to see a film that included the secession of Texas from Mexico; the boy stood up in the dark and cried, “Viva Mexico!” It was a sense of duty he carried all his life.

Jeep’s Green Wave Crashes Into Europe, Will Ripple Back to North America

Fiat Chrysler’s reputation as an automaker that scoffs at fuel economy mandates is slowly being chipped away. Never mind the much-loathed Fiat 500e; it was the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid that really got the ball rolling, with eTorque-engined Ram 1500s upping the company’s green cred for 2019. At this week’s Geneva Motor Show, the high-flying Jeep […] The post Jeep’s Green Wave Crashes Into Europe, Will Ripple Back to North America appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

How Can Juventus Afford Aaron Ramsey And Ronaldo?

As we covered yesterday, Aaron Ramsey has signed a staggering £400,000-a-week, pre-contract deal at Juventus that will net him £83 million over four years. The Serie A giants confirmed on Monday that Wales international Ramsey had signed an agreement ahead of joining in the summer when his current deal with Arsenal expires.

Unusual Vintage Auto Design: The 1959 Fiat 600 Multipla Microvan

Something I love: Cars that look as if the designer has never seen a car before. That's praise, not an insult. If your brain wasn't clogged with 10,000 Instagram images of what a car is supposed to look like, what would you draw? Designing something fresh was undoubtedly easier in the 1950s, prior to globalization and the internet.

Supra Vs. Z4: The Fine Line Between Toyota & BMW Sports Cars

The 2020 Toyota Supra is destined for greatness. But there’s a problem. The BMW Z4 M40i is basically the same car albeit with a more powerful motor. Which begs the question: when is a Toyota sports car not a BMW? Where does one end and the other begin? The much anticipated hype is over. In the immortal words of my colleague Tony Borroz, it’s time to stop frothing at the mouth since the 2020 Toyota Supra is finally here. And boy, what a journey it has been, huh? I’m pretty sure Toyota did ev...

Was 2018 as Good a Year for Electric Vehicles as They Say?

Teslas galore. But at the Tesla factory, not on the streets of most cities. Supporters of battery electric vehicles (EV and/or BEV) are rapturous about the 81% increase in electric vehicles sold in 2018 compared to 2017.  This table shows the breakdown, with a total of 361,307 vehicles sold in the US in 2018, compared to 199,826 sold in 2017. We should add a disclaimer.  We love electric-powered vehicles.  We’d like nothing more than to get a fully loaded Tesla, and, failing that, just about an...

Fiat 500: Still Influencing Design & History 60 Years On

A vintage Fiat 500 will be displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in 2019. The tiny, yet affordable car helped put Europe on wheels following World War II.
