    Or helicopter :shrug: I still think the issue of range when it comes to cars you are driven in, albeit a Limo or Taxi etc, is yet to be solved.

    Tesla Superchargers might be quick, but If i were wealthy, snobby, busy and stressed about deadlines there's no way I'd put myself in a situation where I had to sit in the back of a stationary Tesla or whatever for 30 mins +.

    Absolutely stunning. Out of this world stunning.

    The most shocking thing for me was how exotic that 911 looked in that setting, I imagine it was rather exotic at the time those images are meant to replicate but still, it looks so cool (as does every single car there tbf).

    Jesus, that really is eye-opening. Safety has definitely come at a cost.

    Why We Abandoned A Car After A 3,700-Mile Drive From Europe To Asia

    This great story was just posted on jalopnik. Proper Topgear-esque stuff without trying to be it. What makes the story even more interesting is that Gawker/Jalopnik closed down the journalist's Hungarian office with little to no notice after the Hulk Hogan lawsuit. He was treated awfully, and is seemingly a rather good auto journalist.

    I hope they don't try and make him a scapegoat, people much higher up the food chain deserve fairly huge consequences for this and it wouldn't surprise me if the lower-down engineers get a lot of the blame.

    Just when Dieselgate decided to lay low for a while... yeahhhh no such luck. Süddeutsche Zeitung (South-German Newspaper) says they own various correspondance which are currently being investigated by Jones Day, some American lawyer firm. Based on those pieces, they are concluding that not VW but Audi is responsible for the cheatsoftware development, as an Audi manager would have clearly stated they múst cheat in order to pass ever stricter emission regulations.

    It ain't over, not yet...

    VW have announced they'll be cutting 23,000 jobs in Germany between now and 2020 to save money due to the emissions scandal. Between this and them pulling out of some Motorsports... they seem to be hurting quite badly.

    We don't pray for love, we just pray for cars.
