I Am Losing My Mind Over This BMW M2 Competition With German Livery  I Am Losing My Mind Over This BMW M2 Competition With German Livery 

There are no more BMW M2s, only the 2019 BMW M2 Competition now. That means 405 horsepower from a compact little package. And when I saw it decked out in German livery, I near lost my damn mind.

Here's Why Wider Tires Aren't Always Better Here's Why Wider Tires Aren't Always Better

One thing that people like to do when modding their cars is to slap on some wider tires. It makes logical sense. More tire contact with the ground means more usable grip. But it’s not always that simple.

The 2018 BMW M240i Coupe Is Still The Best The 2018 BMW M240i Coupe Is Still The Best

Now that the mighty BMW M2 is here, you might overlook the 2018 BMW M240i Coupe. That’s unfortunate, because letting the medium-heat 2 Series slip by you would be a big mistake. This is still my favorite practical, comfortable, two-door, performance luxury car currently on the market.

The configurator for the 2019 Ford Mustang is now live. With it, you can spec out the EcoBoost Mustang, the convertible Mustangs, the EcoBoost premium Mustang, the GT, the GT premium and the Bullitt Mustang. Here are the ones that matter (to me).

Genesis, Hyundai And Kia Topped Even Porsche In The 2018 JD Power Initial Quality Rankings Genesis, Hyundai And Kia Topped Even Porsche In The 2018 JD Power Initial Quality Rankings

While our world slowly descends into a fiery hellscape, at least new vehicle quality is up. There’s a silver lining to everything. The 2018 JD Initial Quality rankings are out and the highest ranked brands are all Korean this time.

All New Volvo Cars After 2025 Will Be Made From 25 Percent Recycled Plastics All New Volvo Cars After 2025 Will Be Made From 25 Percent Recycled Plastics

Ever since I read about that whale who died because it had ingested 80 plastic bags, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about how much plastic we just throw away. Thankfully, Volvo has pledged to alleviate things somewhat.

The New Toyota Supra And BMW Z4 Won't Drive Like 'Identical Twins' The New Toyota Supra And BMW Z4 Won't Drive Like 'Identical Twins'

The last time Toyota teamed up on production duties with another automaker, we got the GT86 and the Subaru BRZ—cars that are very good, but also nearly identical in every way. We know that the new Toyota Supra will share a platform, transmission and engine with the new BMW Z4, but apparently their driving experiences…

Cyberpunk 2077 Looks Like The Raddest '80s Supercar Future We Never Got

The official Cyberpunk 2077 trailer dropped at E3 earlier this month and in it, we got a glimpse of one of the raddest supercars we’ve seen in a video game in recent memory. If this is the automotive aesthetic I can expect for the game, then I’m on board.

Rolls-Royce's Hood Ornament Is Actually A Tribute To A Secret Affair Rolls-Royce's Hood Ornament Is Actually A Tribute To A Secret Affair

Rolls-Royce is one of the few automakers left today that still uses a hood ornament to adorn the front of its cars. It’s called the Spirit of Ecstasy—a elegantly winged woman that who looks as though she’s experiencing a constant headwind. She was, allegedly, based on an actual woman named Eleanor Velasco Thornton.

The Polestar 1 Will Trim 500 Pounds Thanks To A Lot Of Carbon Fiber The Polestar 1 Will Trim 500 Pounds Thanks To A Lot Of Carbon Fiber

The Polestar 1 will be a hyper-advanced, 600-horsepower hybrid sports coupe. And while it probably won’t be too light on its feet, what with the hybrid tech and the mandated safety standards, at least Polestar is using extensive carbon fiber in its construction to cut down on some of that weight.

What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 BMW X3 M40i? What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 BMW X3 M40i?

Yes, it’s got an M in its name but it’s not actually an M car. This is something you and I must come to accept together. But besides that, what do you want to know about the 2018 BMW X3 M40i?

This Aston Martin V12 Hot Rod Is The British-American Mashup Of Your Wildest Dreams This Aston Martin V12 Hot Rod Is The British-American Mashup Of Your Wildest Dreams

When you think about an Aston Martin, you generally think of something sleek and refined. And when you think of an American hot rod, you think of something brash and loud. And if you put the two ideas together, you get this: an Aston Martin hot rod.

This Ford Mustang Is A 700-HP Tribute To U.S. Pilots In The RAF This Ford Mustang Is A 700-HP Tribute To U.S. Pilots In The RAF

As a tribute to the American fighter pilots who served in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War, Ford and RTR Vehicles created the one-off Eagle Squadron Mustang GT. Like the RTR we saw last year, this one will also have 700 supercharged horsepower.

Old Ford For Sale Doesn't Even Come With A Passenger Side Mirror Old Ford For Sale Doesn't Even Come With A Passenger Side Mirror

Look at this old thing, this 1966 Ford GT40. Right-hand drive, as un-American as you can get, and Ford doesn’t even have the decency to stick a passenger side mirror on it. What’s so special about it anyway?

Car Wash Starts Innocently, Ends Tragically

Getting your car washed is such a happy experience. You get to take it to a place, pay a small fee and watch all the dirt and grim rinse off of it and into the gutter. Few things are as satisfying or cathartic. Except when it all goes wrong, like it did for this poor soul.
