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

    Between the return of the Toyota Supra and an honest-to-goodness mid-engined Corvette, we’re living in quite the strange (and fortuitous) automotive timeline. This wild, weird industry keeps throwing us curveballs, from Tesla’s forthcoming semi-truck to Ford’s discontinuation of all cars except the Mustang, every time we think we’re losing our sense of wonder, something pops...

    While we’re still oogling the mid-engine 2020 Corvette Stingray coupe, Chevy just teased the convertible at the coupe’s unveiling event. The automaker is moving quickly, which makes sense considering the 2020 Corvette Stingray convertible will beat with a 495-hp heart.
