Out of the Box: Lexus Creates Full-Size, Drivable Cardboard IS Sedan [w/ Video]

October 5, 2015 at 7:22 pm by Joe Lorio | Photography by Getty Images and the Manufacturer In a move that could be interpreted as taking weight savings to an extreme—or, alternately, as a move downmarket with a special-edition model to be sold exclusively at Walmart—Lexus has unveiled a unique IS sedan made entirely of […]

Evolving to Extinction: U.S. to Get 303-hp Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition

Evolving to Extinction: U.S. to Get 303-hp Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition

Charles Darwin blew wide open the whole “evolution” concept studying finches on the Galapagos Islands in the mid-1800s. Mitsubishi blew wide open the notion of what a performance bargain could be when it introduced the turbocharged, all-wheel-drive Lancer Evolution to the U.S. market for the first time in 2003. The connection? Like those finches, the […]

Volvo has released a video explaining how its self-driving cars—all 2016 XC90s—will engage full self-driving mode, and, just as important, how the cars will hand control […]

Range Rover Evoque Convertible Wearing Camo in the Woods

These are soooo not spy shots. Yes, they show a camouflaged thing, a thing that has not been officially revealed, (and, frankly, a thing we still can’t quite believe is happening in the first place), but no, they’re not spy shots. The vehicle in said photos is Land Rover’s upcoming Range Rover Evoque convertible, of […]

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Midnight Edition 4×4, After Dark

Strange Dayz: Nissan Tokyo Concept Is More for “Sharing” than Driving

At the other end of the spectrum, thematically, from its Vision 2020 Gran Turismo, Nissan at Tokyo also will display a quirky, electric concept car that purports to redefine transportation for a digital Japanese generation.

What It Is: A current-generation, four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited—or at least that’s what the engineering team driving it wants you to think. Instead, this is in all likelihood an early test mule for the next-generation Wrangler, which is due out in a year or so as a 2017 model. This Wrangler’s bodywork might be unchanged […]

Mercedes-AMG May Be Working On V-12–Powered Hybrid Supercar

When Mercedes-AMG replaced its SLS supercar with the more accessible GT, we couldn’t help but wonder how the firm would continue to cater to SLS customers, not to mention owners of the unforgettable McLaren-Mercedes SLR. The GT, after all, costs just about half of what the SLS went for, and prices for preowned examples of the discontinued gullwinged […]
