  • Yesterday morning, in Exeter, NH, this happened. Somehow. No one was hurt, and no one really understands just how this Chevy Spark managed to crash so it ended up doing a nose-stand in the snow. Was a giant playing mumbleypeg with it? Did the owner train it to do yoga? Can it do other tricks?Read more...
  • Everyone knows and loves the classic Corvette racing yellow and black. Customer team Larbre Competition just updated that paint scheme with this wild yellow, black, green and white livery for their new Corvette C7.R. And oh yes, the World Endurance Championship's favorite 'Vette squad is back in a Chevy. Read more...
  • Sikorsky's S-97 Raider s pun its rotors and pusher propeller for the first time today. Although the innovative light attack and scout chopper does not have a customer yet, its technology aims to replace the vast majority of the Army's helicopter fleet while offering double the speed and greater range.Read more...

  • The 2015 Chevy Colorado is the most refined mid-sized truck in America right now, and packs plenty of capability. But for some reason you just don't care. Toyota sold almost twice as many Tacomas last month and the brand-new GM only beat the geriatric Nissan Frontier by 74 sales.Read more...
  • They say that there are no truly bad new cars anymore, and with the redesign of the Smart ForTwo that might actually be true. But that doesn't mean that all new car choices equal a great bang for your buck. Case in point: the 2015 Chevrolet Trax , Chevy's new mini-crossover.Read more...
  • Here's a great example of trucks helping trucks, and an even better opportunity for Ford fanboys to fap themselves silly. The snowdump might be finished, but the streets of Chicago look pretty hopeless in the aftermath and this F-150 pulls off a righteous recovery effort.Read more...
  • Oh ho ho! Someone's gonna lose their job over this one! The whole internet is collectively shitting their internet-pants over this dazzling wower of a leak of pictures the new Opel Corsa OPC ahead of its official reveal and ... aw, screw it. I can't even pretend to give a shit. Sorry, Opel, but today wasn't the best day for this.Read more...

  • Mercedes-Benz won the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft’s (DTM) manufacturers’ championship several times during the first half of the 1990s. However, the Stuttgart-based automaker faced the unenviable prospect of racing against itself after Alfa Romeo and Opel, Mercedes’ main rivals, pulled out of the series in the wake of questionable choices made by the FIA. DTM was canceled altogether after the 1996 season, leaving Mercedes without a major presence in motorsport.

  • Maybe it was my dreams last night. Maybe it was some odd recollection of that melancholy mid winter feeling when the world gets small. Maybe I saw a pine tree and that did it.Read more...
  • There's a valuable lesson here. No matter how dedicated you are to the cause of I Don't Know Shit About Cars, sometimes it doesn't hurt to know just a little. Alternately, you could go full freakout like Jerry Ascione, and make a big deal out of the fact that you didn't know some cars have been getting rid of spare tires for, oh, a decade or so.Read more...
  • Recently, we posted about great cars that no one was buying . At number four was the Chevy SS, with a 415hp LS3 V8, rear-wheel drive and mag-ride suspension; it is a modern day E39 M5. The reason for such lackluster sales isn't because people don't want them, it is because they can't have the one they want.Read more...
