Hmmm, piss off his rich political buddies (some of whom undoubtedly own dealerships or get contributions from dealership) by voting to let Tesla sell directly to consumers, or piss off his rich political buddies (none of whom, apparently, opposed the bill in the house or senate) by voting against them (i.e. NOT… » 10/15/14 3:26pm 10/15/14 3:26pm

When these guys are flying cross country (Miramar - Key West) how fast do they get there? 2-3 hours? Do they book it, or take their time? And do they need to stop for fuel on the way?

I guess I always assumed that they flew commercial when traveling cross country like that...now I'm curious about the specifics! » 10/08/14 1:32pm 10/08/14 1:32pm

Yes yes yes yes yes. The more trucks/buses/etc. that we can convert to more fuel efficient propulsion, the better.

I was at Yosemite last month and the shuttles and buses and open-top tour vehicles are all diesel electric hybrids, but they're still loud and they do still pollute directly into the park. I'd love to see… » 10/06/14 7:34pm 10/06/14 7:34pm

Canadian Man Drives Z3 M Coupe To The Edge Of The World...Because Canada

For those of you who didn't already know that Canadians were crazy in the head, here's proof. An unidentified Canadian Z3 M Coupe owner decided to drive his Coupe 7,750 kilometers round trip through the Yukon Territory to the Arctic Ocean with his only prep being six days of partying and excessive drinking in Vegas. » 10/01/14 12:17pm 10/01/14 12:17pm

Wait, so it can scoop water out of a lake while flying almost the same speed as its takeoff? Does that mean it needs to land on water, and then it basically fills its tanks while "taxiing" for takeoff?

Otherwise, how big to the pilot's stones have to be to skim across the surface of the water at 100+ MPH while it… » 9/29/14 4:23pm 9/29/14 4:23pm

That design is awesome. Kudos to Alex. The rear 3/4 shot shows the back end to be a bit..."lost", design wise I think but the rest of the car (especially the front) is killer.

I think it would be awesome to see Mazda continue their work on rotary engines. More choices/options/engine tech can't be a bad thing... » 9/29/14 12:50pm 9/29/14 12:50pm

Absolutely. Vans are awesome. I've been a Sprinter owner since December, when I bought a 2008 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. It's still badged as a Dodge, but that should change soon. The engine and all of the parts say Mercedes-Benz, and I pay Mercedes-Benz part and repair prices, so why shouldn't I get to have the MBZ star… » 9/26/14 10:27pm 9/26/14 10:27pm

Ahh, typical bitter old salesman...

"You know what, if I'm going to be charging $150,000 to break something, I'm not even going to sell this car..."

Welcome to high tech. Get used to it...don't be a stodgy, bitter person about it. It is what it is, and your livelihood depends on it, so...
