718. These are magic numbers for Porsche. They are linked to its great Motorsports heritage and its modern, mid-engine expertise. But what does that mean to you, the enthusiast, today? Let's take the 718 for a drive and find out.
Tesla just released a new video that appears to exist for no other reason than to recap Tesla. There are coupes and SUVs going fast, batteries and a gigafactory, a couple of semis, "The machine that makes the machine," and lots of shots of active, intense factory workers. There's also, at the 0:15-second mark, a tease of some new Tesla half built and half hidden under a sheet. We will assume this is the Model Y. And at the 1:05 mark we get a few seconds of the coming Roadster cockpit looking lik
Yesterday, we discovered that Dodge was working on some sort of update to the nose of the Charger Hellcat. Today, Dodge revealed what the change is. It's a new grille with an intake outlet.

Hundreds of people on Hawaii's Big Island were ordered to evacuate their homes after the Kilauea Volcano erupted, belching ash into the sky and spewing fountains of lava in a residential area, officials said on Friday.
A not-so-long time ago, in a marketer's office not that far away, someone saw that there was going to be a new Star Wars movie called "Rogue One" and said, "Hey, Nissan sells a car called the Rogue. This is a perfect! Call up George Lucas immediately, or Mickey Mouse, or whoever's in charge over there."
Watch Ford torture its pickups. Testing starts in the lab then progresses to the proving grounds and finally goes through intense real-world challenges. At Ford's Michigan proving grounds, Ranger hits Silver Creek Track. The impacts are so severe that robotic drivers are used so humans don't get injured.
Even though it's a few months late from the CES 2018 target date, SureFly, part of Workhorse Group, has finally run a flying test of its hybrid-electric helicopter. The company also recorded the test flights in the video above. The company touts that the flight is completely untethered and was an FIA sanctioned flight.

If you've never seen the road with the eyes of a drunk driver, the better. However, this dashcam video released by Sussex Police in the UK shows you what it looks like to be barreling down the road significantly over the legal limit. Take this as an instructional video, then.
Ford tends to develop some pretty nifty technology that doesn't always reach mass production, and it recently revealed another device that falls in that category. It's called Feel the View, and it lets blind people get an idea of what's outside the car window. It does this in a very clever way that uses vibrations on the glass.
I took the Honda Ridgeline for a long weekend Up North. Most of my time with the truck so far had been in the rain or snow, 40 miles at a time, during my commute to and from the Autoblog office as the Michigan winter dragged on. I had planned trips Up North (always capitalized by most Michiganders) to the family cottage on Lake Huron, but abandoned them due to nasty weather. Even if it was sunny and warm on any given day or week here in the Detroit area, we got weather reports from relatives who
Remember that Tesla Model S shooting brake we told you about a few months ago? No, not that Dutch-customizer version, which has yet to see the light of day, so far as we can tell. We're talking about the wagonized version from British outfit Qwest Norfolk. The finished version was just featured in a new episode of U.K. YouTube show Fully Charged.
We're big fans of The FJ Company here at Autoblog. The outfitter builds some pretty sweet restomod Toyota off-roaders. Late last year, we were lucky enough to drive a 1981 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ43. It was a big dose of nostalgia right to the pleasure centers of the brain. While that particular FJ — the company's Signature model — would set you back at least $200,000, The FJ Company does offer vehicles with less eye-watering price tags. No matter the cost, each model is painstakingly
