automobile : of, relating to, or concerned with self-propelled vehicles or machines (typically on land) — Webster

OneLook, Free Dictionary, Wiktionary, Urban Dictionary


Roget’s II (, Merriam-Webster Thesaurus, Visuwords


Car is a wheeled, self-powered motor vehicle used for transportation and a product of the automotive industry. Most definitions of the term specify that cars are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels with tires, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods. The year 1886 is regarded as the birth year of the modern car. In that year, German inventor Karl Benz built the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. Cars did not become widely available until the early 20th century. One of the first cars that was accessible to the masses was the 1908 Model T, an American car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. Cars were rapidly adopted in the United States of America, where they replaced animal-drawn carriages and carts, but took much longer to be accepted in Western Europe and other parts of the world. — Wikipedia

    by Alex Leanse on August 19, 2019 at 8:43 pm

    We’ve already received an in-depth, passenger-seat preview of the all-electric Porsche Taycan—and its performance earns the red-and-gold crest on its hood. But what about its daily usability? Battery range and charge times are barriers against electric vehicle adoption; “refueling” an electric car still just isn’t as convenient. However, Porsche has been working to develop quick-recharge... The post Porsche Tests Taycan Electric Range and Charging at Nardo appeared […]

    We attended Supercars by the Sea (SXS) #20 in Huntington Beach, California and unlike the usual suspects (McLarens, Ferraris, and Lamborghinis), this time around the theme called for all station wagons to strut their wheels. Although the SXS recurring car meet brought together a solid flock of wagons that included Volvo, BMW, and Dodge, it...

    ROYAL OAK, Michigan—The power of Mopar is not at the Pebble Beach Concours. It’s at the Woodward Avenue Dream Cruise north of Detroit, where it belongs, even if the boulevard/dragstrip isn’t ideal for displaying the off-road acumen of Fiat Chrysler’s hottest brand, Jeep. “Ninety percent of Wranglers have at least one aftermarket accessory,” says Mark...
