New ?Magnum P.I.? has fake Ferrari, fake Tom Selleck

Filed under: Celebrities,TV/Movies,Videos,Ferrari

Wait, that's the new "Magnum P.I."? That guy? Really? I mean, he doesn't need to have a mustache. Or a Hawaiian shirt. Or really short shorts. But come on, there's nothing displayed by Jay Hernandez in the above "Magnum P.I." trailer that says "I have charisma and likability comparable to Tom Selleck." Now, is that even possible? Probably not, Tom Selleck is, well, Tom Selleck. But much as Chris Pine successfully captured Captain Kirk's bravado without doing a William Shatner impression, such a

The future will be cool, because it has motorcycles with jet thrusters. No, not flying motorcycles, they're still very much ground vehicles. But they're still really cool, because they could save you some nasty injuries and expensive repairs.

Filed under: Tesla,Sedan,Electric

The Tesla Model 3 has finally been making its way into the eager hands of owners, and since Tesla hasn't been providing test vehicles to the press (as every other car manufacturer does), publications have been relying on those owners to lend or rent them their cars for evaluation purposes. We did just that for our Tesla Model 3 First Drive.

The Chevy Corvette line is pretty well rounded at this point, starting with the plain old Stingray up to the beastly, hardcore ZR1, with the Grand Sport and Z06 filling in the gaps. But it looks like yet another Corvette niche could appear, as evidenced by the above spy shots. They show a Corvette Z06, but with a ZR1 wing and more. And by more, we mostly mean "orange."

The brand-new 2019 Subaru Ascent could very well be called the Mulligan. You may have heard the term used by amateur golfers as a sort of do-over for an egregiously bad first shot. But in the case of the Ascent, Subaru's largest-ever vehicle, it means that the Japanese automaker gets one more chance to build a successful three-row crossover for America.

Now that Ford's hacking its U.S. car lineup down to the Mustang and the not-exactly-a-car Focus Active, we'll spend awhile getting to read about hot cars for other markets. First up: Motoring predicts that Ford is finally preparing a Fiesta RS. We've had four years of rumors about the super-hot hatch with nothing to show — or we could cite 14 years of hankering if we go back to the 2004 Fiesta RS concept. Motoring believes this time's for real because when it asked Ford Performance Europe

2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo First Drive Review | Can't spell funky without fun
by Nick Kurczewski
21 May 2018 at 4:01am

Filed under: Hyundai,First Drives,Hatchback

The 2019 Hyundai Veloster is a revitalized version of a type of car many mainstream automakers are slowly giving up on entirely: the affordable sports car. Rivals like the Honda Civic Si and Volkswagen GTI spring to mind but, generally speaking, car companies crank out more and more SUVs and crossovers while this once thriving segment dwindles in numbers. That's too bad, because it takes only a few minutes behind the wheel to realize the crossover and SUV crowd are missing out on a lot of drivin

Don't be the guy in the image above. If you're just plain tall, or have really long legs, we feel your pain – and you should be driving a car that fits you right. A few Autoblog editors fall into the long camp, and despite vehicles designed for Americans generally being generous with interior room, it's not always easy to find a car that'll work without contortion. No one wants their knees digging into the underside of the dash just to reach the wheel, or their head brushing the headliner

When Chevrolet introduced the 2019 Chevy Silverado, by far the most exciting engine reveal was the 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline-6, and it overshadowed what seemed like just carryover gasoline V8s, a 5.3-liter and a 6.2-liter. And now that the company has announced an all-new turbocharged four-cylinder, which you can read about here, you'd be forgiven for thinking that there wasn't much going on with the V8s, but that's not the case.

Until now, it appeared Chevy and GMC were going to focus on improving naturally aspirated V8s and adding a diesel.
