Published by on Jun 20th, 2014, No Comments

Porsche 911 Carrera S

Have we mentioned that we love the Drive channel on Youtube? Probably.

And today is no different. We also have a special place for a beautiful, newly built (and lets not forget super, super powerful) Porsche. This is why we are really excited about this video.

Matt Farah of the Drive channel takes the all new 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera S for a spin at the Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in California and really shows us what this beaut is capable of.

As per usual, we are insanely jealous but grateful enough to be able to see the car from up close; even if it is only on video.

Enjoy!

keep your eyes on the road volkswagen

We all know (hopefully) that using your mobile phone while driving is an absolute no no. Whether you are making phone call, sending a text or checking your social media, it is extremely dangerous to use your phone while you are operating a vehicle.

Sure, you might think that you are only taking your eyes off the road for one second, but one second is all you need to cause a terrible accident.

This is what Volkswagen tries to illustrate in their latest ad, promoting the responsible use of mobile phones while driving. And by responsible we mean NOT using your mobile phone at all.

The ad, which was first shown to people in Korea, integrated clever technology to really have a great on effect on the people. (more…)

'57 Chevy Bel Air

So you’re probably wondering what is so special about a loving son gifting his father a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air for his 57th birthday. Well, the fact that this has been a promise between father and son for more the 20 years and the way in which the dad reacts, will show you exactly why.

A long time ago, an 8-year old boy made a special promise to his father; he said that he will give him his dream car for his 57th birthday one day. That car was none other than the stunningly classic, Chevy Bel-Air.

So the years went by and while the father didn’t expect a promise made by a young, innocent 8-year old boy to be kept, he had the surprise of his lifetime when he found out it was. (more…)

This week, Jay has somewhat of a special episode in store for his viewers. He took on of Italy’s most famous (and lets add, beautiful) races, the Mille Miglia.

And of course, him being Jay Leno and all, he did in utter style – in a classic, stunningly beautiful, Jaguar XK120.

The Mille Miglia, for those of you who don;t know, is an annual, 1000 mile race in Italy that stretches from Brescia to Rome and back. The first ever Mille Miglia was held in 1927 and was a full-on endurance race until 1957. However, in 1977 the race was reinstated as a ‘regularity race’ for vintage and classic cars. (more…)

Google Self-Driving Car

You may have heard the news already, but perhaps you didn’t believe it – because it really is almost unbelievable.

While we have heard of Google’s Prius powered self-driving cars before, we have not been well acquainted with their very own, ‘built-from-scratch’ self-driving car. This is mainly because it was only shown to the public for the very first time last week.

The mega tech company invited a handful of everyday, normal people like us to witness their very first prototype of their self-driving car in action. And needless to say, the people there (as well as us) were kind of blown away. (more…)

Smart Car vs Mustang

So, generally speaking, there aren’t many vehicle enthusiasts (or everyday people, for that matter) that hold the Smart Car in a high regard. In fact, many people and critics a like think the tiny car is cute – when you’re 16.
