Even Subaru Had a Tough Year But It’s Mounting a Comeback

The Subaru Levorg is the Subaru wagon Americans want but can’t have, since we don’t buy many wagons here and it’s reserved for other parts of the world. But that doesn’t stop us from wishing that one day the laws of nature will be broken and the U.S. will get all of the fun cars we’ve always wanted—like the two 
This is the moment a confused motorist takes multiple attempts to try and squeeze their car into a small parking space in Minneapolis, Minnesota, only to reverse back out once the car is finally in.
Just over a week ago, Mopar announced preorders for the “Hellephant” crate engine—a 1,000-horsepower, nearly $30,000 powerhouse to be plugged into any eligible vehicle. But if it took you more than 48 hours to determine whether it was a joke because of the name, you missed out on the chance to order one.
You don’t really hear people talk about the Ferrari 348, but some people at a RM Sothebys auction will be talking about this 1990 Ferrari 348 TB Zagato Elaborazione, which took the regular car and added a bunch of circular lights.

^ I had one for 3 years and it worked great in the US haha.
At the start of the year Tesla teased Sentry Mode, a security feature for its EVs that leverages a 360 dash cam to record damage and attempted break-ins. It rolled outin February, and it’s already earning its keep. According to ABC 7 news, the feature has resulted in the arrest of a would-be thief.

I’ve been trying to be more positive these days, after a rough few years, though that positivity takes a hit every time I get into a car with a touchscreen. That’s because touchscreens in cars are bad and even dangerous—a failed experiment.
Those of you familiar with the “pink tax” shouldn’t be at all that surprised to learn that women tend to pay more than men for car insurance in half of the United States. And this is despite men being found to be the overall riskier drivers. Go figure!
Two security researchers and self-described “white hat hackers” found a trove of unencrypted location, camera, and other data on a wrecked Tesla Model 3, according to a new report from CNBCAnd while it’s not a problem unique to Tesla, the example serves as a stark reminder that newer cars can become a security risk for former owners, regardless of whether they’re sold or wrecked.

Tesla has completely torched its original plan for the $35,000 Model 3. Late on Thursday night, the company announced a fundamental change to what is supposed to be the most affordable version of its first mass-market car.

Aston Martin’s all-electric Rapide E is a 604HP leap into the future

No more teasing — Aston Martin has finally revealed its first all-electric car. The Rapide E swaps out a V12 engine for an 800V, 65 kWh battery system and twin rear motors with 604 hp and 700 pound-feet of torque. There will only be 155 units produced, “with prices available on application” and along with Williams, the carmaker has packed an aging frame with plenty of reasons to try this one out.

Craigslist Will Soon Start Charging $5 to List a Car for Sale

Most people who frequent this website likely have four Craigslist tabs open at any given time, since it’s a reflex to check local car listings approximately every few minutes during the workday. But the folks selling those cars are in for a surprise come April 15, when Craigslist ups the list charge from free to $5.

The Jeep Wayout Concept Is a 2020 Jeep Gladiator Turned Into an Overlanding Beast

One of the most exciting things about the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, and about mid-size off-road trucks in general, is that they make for excellent overlanding rigs. And to prove this point, Jeep has built the “Wayout” concept for the Moab Easter Jeep Safari. Check out its awesome rooftop tent.

Marshmello is doing it BIG with his tricked out truck … pouring in half a million dollars to make his ride feel like a Vegas nightclub!!! The legendary DJ recently had his Ford Super Duty COMPLETELY redone by some of the best in the biz — RDB LA…
It’s apparent that the new Ferrari P80/C is unequivocally gorgeous, but the other day someone pointed out that it looks familiar. Specifically, that it looks like the fictional Vapid FMJ from Grand Theft Auto V. Now I can’t unsee the similarities.
The Dodge Challenger is as old as it is impractical. It’s based on an ancient platform, and its looks haven’t changed that dramatically since its 2008 revival. It has the turning radius of a bus and the traction of a cat on hard floors, it guzzles gasoline like its job is to make sure the world runs out of petroleum,…
I’ve tried to do less gawking at other people’s unfortunate wrecks but thisLamborghini Huracan Performante wipeout, reportedly recorded over the weekend, showed up on my feed so many times I couldn’t help but investigate. And now I’m just confused.
Rumors of a widebody Charger sedan being seen on the streets seem to have been accurate, as Dodge finally showed the car in public. The Widebody Charger was displayed during SoCal LX Spring Fest, a festival that is, you guessed it, all about LX-chassis MoPars. Technically FCA is calling the car a “concept” but it is…
The 25-year-old man, Chen, crashed his luxury car into a van in front of him while answering a phone call, police said. The luxury car was given to Chen by his mother as a gift last month.
The Italian container ship “Grande America” sank off the French Atlantic Coast last week after a fire broke out. All 27 crew members were able to evacuate before it sank, but over 2,000 cars, allegedly including a shipment of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, didn’t make it.
Tesla Model Y announced: release set for 2020, price starts at $39,000
This is the Tesla Model Y, the electric carmaker’s new compact SUV due out in 2020. The long range version will travel 300 miles on single charge, and will sell for $47,000, while the $60,000 performance version will be capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. It’s Elon Musk’s fifth car ever to hit the road, and the company’s second attempt at a mass-market electric vehicle.
Perhaps one of the most tedious parts of meeting new people is finding common interests. But Koenigsegg is the bearer of good news this week, because you and roughly 7.5 billion other people now have something to bond over: your lack of a 1,600-horsepower, $3 million Jesko, which is officially sold out.
This month, the $12.5-million Bugatti La Voiture Noire debuted at the Geneva Motor Show, mysteriously letting us gaze upon its exterior glory and nothing else. But there was a reason, other than the fact that we’re not rich enough to handle it: The car won’t actually be done for at least another two years.
This is a video of an alleged $3-million Pagani Huayara doing a casual lap on a packed-snow track, then proceeding to repeatedly get stuck in the slush later in the day as the snow began to melt. I mean of course it did — those are low profile sport tires, they were designed for like, the opposite of snow. And who thought it would be a good idea to take their Pagani Huayara out in the snow in the first place? You own a $3-million car, go buy a plane and fly that thing somewhere warm where it belongs. Keep going for the video.
The Honda Civic Type R is the newest vehicle on the New South Wales Police Force in Australia, but don’t think a cop will come after you in it for breaking the hooning laws or trying to street race it at a stoplight. This 306-horsepower hot hatch, law-enforcing livery or not, will be for show.
I don’t have the energy to be incredulous anymore, fam. But if I did, I’d be wide-eye head-shaking all over the place after hearing that a 1994 Toyota Supra sold for an ungodly sum of $173,600 at this weekend’s Amelia Island car auction.

Tesla’s Model S and Model X get new motors with more range

Without increasing the size of the battery, Tesla claims it’s improved range, power and torque enough to make for faster 0 – 60 MPH times. The Long Range Model S was previously EPA rated for up to 335 miles on a charge, and now it can go to 370. The Long Range Model X, meanwhile, extends to up to 325 miles. The company took Motor Trend for a drive in one of the new sedans yesterday during its autonomous event and traveled 359 miles from Fremont to LA without a recharge, using 83 kWh and showing 11 percent charge left — good enough for around 400 miles.
