Encyclopedia

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

    Okay, maybe make that all year. Rod Emory is well-known in the Porsche community for his “Outlaw” car builds; they typically start with a Porsche 356 as a basis, and his eponymous Emory Motorsports shop carefully and extensively modifies the vintage, air-cooled, rear-engine machines into more extreme versions of the iconic sports cars that they are....

    Citroën has unveiled its Ami One concept car, although perhaps we shouldn’t call it a concept ca—according to Citroën, the Ami One is an “urban electric mobility object.” Named for a delightfully ugly Citroën supermini of the early 1960s (ami is French for “friend”), the Ami One is a two-seat all-electric city car with a...

    Porsche owner and enthusiast Todd Schleicher has posted what could be the first public images of the 2020 Porsche 911 Turbo on his Instagram account. And we gotta say the car, which is based on the latest 992-generation 911, looks pretty sweet. This gray metallic beast wears glossy black wheels—likely in staggered 20-inch front and...

    by ELLY on February 21, 2019 at 8:35 pm

    A sport-tuned crossover wearing 21-inch low-profile summer tires has no right to ride as creamily as does Audi’s second-generation high-performance SQ5. But smooth and refined the SQ5 most assuredly is—as I discovered mere minutes after climbing behind its leather-wrapped, flat-bottom steering wheel. This is a busy segment of the market, bursting with the likes of... The post The Audi SQ5 Is Sporty, Sumptuous, and Strong appeared first on Automobile Magazine. […]

    Tesla has missed key deadlines in the past, but that hasn’t stopped CEO Elon Musk from setting ambitious timelines for the autonomous capabilities of its cars. Musk says that its full self-driving technology will be complete by the end of this year. “I think we will be ‘feature-complete’ on full self-driving this year, meaning the car...
