    Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake: Let’s Just Call It A Superwagon

    The Jaguar XFR-S does a great job of bundling speed, comfort, and style in a high-performance package.  If you’re in the market for a whip that factors family utility into the equation, however, the Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake should probably be your ride of choice. That’s right, the XFR-S now comes in sports wagon form, bringing the prodigious talents of the marquee’s most powerful sports saloon in a full-fledged family vehicle.  Seriously, calling this a sports wagon just doesn’t seem right [...]

    Lotus C-01 Motorcycle Looks Awesome, Brings Tron Lightcycle Pedigree

    A while ago, Lotus, the storied sports car maker, announced they will be entering the motorcycle business in a huge way by delivering a “hyper bike.”  And now they have with the introduction of the Lotus C-01. If the vehicle’s lines remind you of the motorcycles from “Tron: Legacy,” that’s because it’s designed by Daniel Simon, the same guy responsible for fashioning the futuristic Lightcycles used in the movie.  Yep, it’s probably as close to a real-life Tron bike as [...]

    McLaren 650S Brings Improved Aerodynamics, Retuned V8 Engine

    There isn’t much in terms of aesthetic surprises for the McLaren 650S.  It looks every bit as we would have expected in a new supercar from the guys behind the 12C and the million-dollar P1. Design elements from the 12C are apparent, with the massive intakes, roofline, and dihedral doors, with the front end looking a whole lot like the P1.  It’s not as extreme in terms of styling as the legendary sold-out P1 supercar, but it definitely looks and [...]

  • Decked Adds Drawers To Your Pickup Truck Bed For Maximizing Storage Space

    Decked Adds Drawers To Your Pickup Truck Bed For Maximizing Storage Space

    There’s no shortage of aftermarket setups designed to maximize the amount of gear you can stow away in the back of your pickup truck. One of the newest, and arguably the most interesting, has to be this storage drawer system called Decked. Designed for full-size pickup trucks, it installs right on the bed, giving you access to a pair of pull-out drawers that span the full floor area. The system is only 12 inches tall, so you still get a [...]

    2015 Twin Turbo Ferrari California T Brings Turbocharged Performance

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is the 2015 Twin Turbo Ferrari California T. And, yes, that’s T as in turbocharged, making it the first forced-induction Ferrari since the iconic F40 from 1987. A twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 engine delivers power under the hood, boasting direct injection, twin-scroll turbines, and a three-piece cast exhaust manifold.

    Ethos E30 Boat Allows Modular Layouts For Adapting To Different Uses

    When you buy a boat and choose to equip it with a specific layout, you’re usually stuck with that. Unless you’re willing to do a whole load of work to remove this bench there or add a small table here, there just aren’t a lot of options available. Not the case with Ethos E30, which lets you customize the deck layout any time you feel like it. Made by Italian boat builders Azure Embark, it uses an open deck layout [...]

    BikeBoards Are Bicycle Skis For Gliding In The Snow

    Sure, you can try riding a fat bike on thick snow to get your cold weather bicycling fix. For all intents and purposes, though, we have a feeling using a BikeBoard with your bike is going to make for a lot less hard work on your part. A ski that attaches to your bike’s front tire, it lets the front of your bike glide through the snow. Since the skis out front help compact the snow, there’s also less resistance [...]

    Joyboat Is A Quiet, Novice Friendly Joystick-Controlled Electric Boat

    Riding a motorized boat is fun, but if you enjoy quietly cruising down the water a whole lot better, a sailboat is likely a better option. If the slower speed of sailboats doesn’t quite satisfy you the right way, the Joyboat offers a seemingly suitable middle ground. Made by Sky-Yacht, it’s an electric motorboat that pairs the quiet of sailboats with just a little more speed, allowing you to cruise in peaceful silence while still reaching your destination sooner. While [...]

  • Ryno Microcycle Is A Lustworthy One Wheel Electric Motorcycle

    Ryno Microcycle Is A Lustworthy One Wheel Electric Motorcycle

    The first time we saw Ryno’s Unicycle, it looked like someone took one end of a motorcycle and chopped off the rest. Now that the company has unveiled its final design, it still looks like someone took one end of a motorcycle and chopped off the rest. Except with the new Ryno Microcycle, it looks like they chopped off a sporty big bike instead of a goofy-looking two-wheeler. Basically, it’s awesome. From the looks of things, they compressed an entire [...]

    Zenos E10 Brings Supercar Performance In A More Affordable Package

    Porsches, Lambos, Bugattis — everybody loves ‘em. Unless you’re a one-percenter, however, you’re relegated to loving them from afar. What about those who are only moderately well off? Surely, they can’t live their entire lives never having owned a proper supercar. That’s what the Zenos E10 is hoping to remedy. Made by Zenos Cars, it’s the first of three road-legal supercars the company is seeking to bring to market over the next five years. Launched at the Autosport International 2014 [...]

    Induct Navia Self-Driving Electric Cars/Shuttles Is Not A Bad Idea At All

    Self-driving cars for all — we all knew it was coming. And it looks like we’ll finally see some headway soon. While you still can’t get a new driverless Rolls Royce any time in the near future, the Induct Navia should help usher in the era of self-driving automobiles. Instead of a car aimed at consumers, creator Induct Technology opted to outfit an 8-person shuttle with their autonomous driving tech. That’s right, they’re keeping the whole self-driving thing away from [...]

    Onewheel Self-Balancing Electric Skateboard Boasts Intuitive Controls, 12 MPH Top Speed

    So far, the world hasn’t really settled on its favorite personal transporter. But if the world ever does, it’s going to have to be something compact, reasonably fast and pack serviceable range. While the jury is still out for the Onewheel, it definitely ticks all those boxes. Billed as a “self-balancing electric skateboard that gives you a feeling of flying,” it consists of a deck with a large hole in the center and a large wheel lodged into it, with [...]

    Track N Go Turns Your Truck Into An Awesome Fun-In-The-Snow Mobile In 15 Minutes

    Aftermarket kits that let you replace your vehicle’s tires with tank treads aren’t new. Setting them up on your truck however is neither quick nor clean. Plus, you’ll have to do everything the other way around when putting the tires back in. Not the case with the Track N Go, a set of tank-style treads that attach directly to your tires. Instead of requiring a good amount of garage work, the kit lets you simply slip each of the truck’s [...]

    2014 Porsche 911 Targa Pairs Retro Style With Over-Engineered Roof

    It was 1989 when Porsche last made one of its targa top convertibles. For all intents and purposes, it seemed like something they are leaving behind for good. Apparently that isn’t the case, as the 2014 Porsche 911 Targa just showed off its wares at the Detroit Auto Show. Sporting a fabric roof we can only describe as over-engineered, the half-open convertible employs a complex-looking mechanical operation that stows the rectangular roof panel by swallowing it in dramatic fashion at [...]

    Toyota FT-1 Concept Pics

    We normally associate Toyota with reliability and economy, rather than cars that feel extremely cool driving.  This year’s Detroit Motor Show could change your mind, however, with the debut of the impossibly cool Toyota FT-1 Concept Car. FT stands for “Future Toyota,” a not-so-subtle hint that the company is bringing sports car designs back into the lineup.  No performance data nor drivetrain specifications were given, so we’re guessing they’d rather we focus on the vehicle’s aggressive aesthetics, which feels like [...]

    In case you still aren’t convinced that lasers make everything better, a quick trip down the CES aisle would probably have swayed your faith.  This time around, lasers give the quest for a better headlamp a giant leap forward with the Audi Sport Quattro Laser Light Concept Car.
