Although the idea of owning a car with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay might sound like a dream come true, it’s far too cost-prohibitive for the average consumer. So what do you do if you want a connected car without breaking the bank?

A voice-activated heads-up display might do the trick. More →

Russian SHERP ATV

For just $65,000, you can buy a ridiculous Russian truck that can drive through water

For just $65,000, you can buy a ridiculous Russian truck that can drive through water

If you’re in the market for an unstoppable truck that can even drive through water, you’ll have to pack up your bags and head to Russia and plunk down $65,000 for the SHERP ATV.

Sporting self-inflated tires, the SHERP ATV won’t win any awards for speed, but where else are you going to find a vehicle that can climb over obstacles up to 2.4 feet high and not sink to the bottom when put in water. Looking like a real-life Tonka Trunk, the stout Russian truck can reach a top speed of 28 mph, and in water it manages to move forward at a respectable but plodding pace of 3.7 mph.

Tesla Model 3 Event Unveiling

Tesla Model 3 will finally be unveiled on March 31

Tesla Model 3 will finally be unveiled on March 31

Tesla yesterday announced that its highly anticipated Model 3 will be unveiled for the first time on March 31. In a letter to shareholders, Tesla CEO Elon Musk also noted that everything is running on schedule and that the vehicle is currently on track for production and deliveries to begin in “late 2017,” which in Tesla parlance may very well end up being December 31, 2017.

Nonetheless, it’s reassuring to see Tesla, which is no stranger to product delays, optimistically state that its mass market EV will in fact be available by the end of next year. On a related note, Tesla added that they’ll begin installing the necessary equipment to manufacture the Model 3 at scale sometime this year.

This unofficial Tesla commercial is jaw-dropping

This unofficial Tesla commercial is jaw-dropping

Tesla famously doesn’t do any advertising, instead opting to devote every spare dime it has towards R&D and capital expenditures. All the same, with a passionate user base, Tesla, much like Apple, seemingly has an unofficial army of representatives who will be quick to tell you the myriad of reasons why the company and its products are so amazing.

Porsche is dead serious about taking on Tesla

Porsche may not be on board with self-driving cars, but it’s certainly moving full steam ahead on plans to develop an electric car. According to a recent report from Reuters, the iconic German automaker recently said that it plans to invest approximately $1.12 billion in factory upgrades over the next few years to pave the way for Mission E production. On top of that, the company relayed its plans to create as many as 1,000 new jobs to bring its vision of an electric car to fruition.

Anonymous ex-employee spills dirt on what it’s like to work for Tesla

Tesla doesn’t quite have the same mystique that Apple does but it is still a company that inspires a lot of intrigue. An anonymous Reddit user claiming to be a former Tesla employee who worked at a retail location recently had an Ask Me Anything session over at /r/teslamotors and he offered an illuminating glimpse into what it’s really like to work for Tesla. The employee posted his original offer letter from Elon Musk as proof of his former employment, although he didn’t answer any questions on future products since he’s still under a nondisclosure agreement.

Tesla Factory Tour

Video offers a rare glimpse inside Tesla’s Model S and Model X factory

Video offers a rare glimpse inside Tesla’s Model S and Model X factory

For the first time in five years, Tesla this week allowed TV cameras into its gargantuan Fremont factory where both the Model S and Model X are manufactured. And speaking to the degree of secrecy that Tesla demands, even casual visitors to the facility are not allowed to tour the space if they have any cameras or recording devices in their possession.

Recently, Jeffrey Schaub of CBS5 KPIX in San Francisco was granted special access to Tesla’s Fremont factory, providing us with an up to date and fascinating look at where Tesla’s revered vehicles are put together. Though obviously not as large as the currently under-construction Gigafactory in Reno, Nevada, the company’s Fremont factory is gigantic in its own right, stretching out over 1 mile long and taking up more than 5 million square feet.

Bloomberg: Tesla’s Model 3 will cost as little as $25,000

The dream of an affordable electric car might finally be a reality. According to a report published by Bloomberg on Tuesday, Tesla has confirmed that the Model 3 will cost $35,000. But that’s before any tax subsidies, which could easily knock the actual price a consumer pays for the car down to a modest $25,000. More →

Restored Ferrari Enzo

A Ferrari Enzo that got cut in half was miraculously restored and sold for $1.75 million

A Ferrari Enzo that got cut in half was miraculously restored and sold for $1.75 million

On the surface, a Ferrari Enzo being sold for $1.75 million at a RM Sotheby’s auction in Paris seems like a complete non-story. After all, with just about 400 ever models produced and a top speed of 221 mph, the Enzo understandably commands a high asking price.

But what makes this particular story so intriguing is that the Ferrari Enzo in question was successfully restored after being involved in a notorious and rather horrific 2006 car crash that literally split the car in two, an accident which made headlines around the world when it happened.

Man summons his Tesla Model S using only his Apple Watch

For a long time I’ve been skeptical of not only the Apple Watch but of smartwatches as a whole. However, a new video posted by YouTuber Mark Schey has opened my eyes to just how incredibly cool it can be to have a mini-computer on your wrist. In short, Schey summons his Tesla Model S by only using an app on his Apple Watch. More →
