NASA Countdown Clock Nears Retirement After 47 Years, the Iconic Clock Counts Down Its Last Seconds

Five… Four… Three… Two… One… Ignition. We all know it. The ticking down of the NASA Countdown Clock heralds the launch of a rocket or the Space Shuttle (which sadly is no more). Those are also the words that spark the imagination of every child (and grown-up) that has ever looked to the sky wondering what lies beyond the bounds of our little blue marble.   Hand-in-hand with Mission Control counting...

Audi RS7 Piloted: Driverless Audi at Hockenheim Driverless Audi RS7 Laps the Track at Speed Using a Picture-Perfect Line

Driverless Audi RS7 Laps the Track at Speed Using a Picture-Perfect Line We already know the $104,900 (base MSRP) Audi RS7 is the biggest beast among all other beastly super-sedans. With its 4.0-liter, 560 horsepower, 516 pound-feet twin-turbocharged V8 powering all four wheels through a Audi’s bullet-proof Quattro AWD system and an eight-speed automatic gearbox, the Audi RS7 Sportback will power from 0 to 60 mph in a scant 3.7...

Apple Watch… Should I Get One? (Price and Specs)

At the risk of sounding like an Apple fanboy… yes.  Yes you should. I want one and may very well get one when they come out in early 2015. Think of it this way, for $349 you can get what is essentially the most complicated watch of all time. It does every thing the Pebble smartwatch does plus soooooo much more.   No, it’s not as mechanically complex as an Audemars Piguet Equation of Time, but the Apple Watch does more...

6 Best Car Commercials from the Past 6 Decades: Evolution of Ads

Ah, car commercials. They’re the way car makers introduce us to their latest offerings… to the latest and greatest innovations in automotive design, technology and, well, bull-hockey. They’re also how car companies tell us which cars were supposed to covet above all others and why. I mean, how else are we supposed to know that Chevrolet is the Heartbeat of America or that Ford wants us to Drive One to Go Further? If...

Toyota FT-1: The New Supra Gets a New Paintjob

  Last January Toyota unveiled a bright red concept car.  That car was the Toyota FT-1, which is destined to become the new Toyota Supra.  That car was gorgeous, but it was, without a doubt a concept far, far, far from production.  Now, in Monterey, California during the McCall’s Motorworks Revival (part of the Pebble Beach hootenanny), Toyota rolled out a new graphite-painted version of the FT-1 (aka New Supra). With its...

Bremont Jaguar Watch for Lightweight E-Type to Debut at Pebble

A few months ago, we told you about the plans Jaguar has to finish the eighteen car run of Lightweight Aluminum E-Types begun in 1963 by building the final six that didn’t make it into production the first time around. Those cars (video and photo gallery below) are going to debut on Thursday in Pebble Beach at the Concours D’Elegance.  However, what we didn’t know last May was that joining the mega-rare Jaguar XKE in its...

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Quarter-Mile, HP, Price, Top Speed

Soooooooo… The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat… Um, yeah.  I’m not entirely sure what else to say about this car other than it’s fast (very, very, very fast) and powerful (very, very, very powerful).  After its flabbergasting power, everything else seems trivial.  We first wrote about the Challenger SRT Hellcat in May, mentioning Dodge’s claim of over 600 horse for this latest of Detroit muscle cars and...

Megane Record Nurburgring Lap in Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy-R

Not many cars can lap the Nurburgring North Loop (aka Nordschleife) in under 8 minutes, especially not teeny-tiny little front-wheel-drive hot hatches.  A few months ago, the Seat Leon Cupra 280 did it in 7:58.4, setting a new ‘Ring lap record for a front-wheel-drive car.  The previous record holder, Renault, was understandably miffed.  So, the plucky French carmaker came back for a Megane record Nurburgring lap.  What Megane? ...
