Watch This Unstoppable Beater Truck Make A Flood Its Bitch posted by Andrew P Collins on Truck Yeah, shared by Damon Lavrinc to Jalopnik

Parts of Colorado were besieged by biblical flood waters in September of 2013. Some how, some way, this old GM made from parts of what looks like at least four different pickups picks the perfect line from one safe spot to another. It’s downright inspiring to watch from this aerial perspective.

Batman caught astride Batcycle in Japan | Chris Bruce

Batman Batpod in Japan

Holy makeshift Batcycle, Batman. This rider in Japan deserves a round of applause and pat on the back for his dedication to an idea. We’ve seen people build more authentic looking recreations of the Batpod in the past but never with this much commitment to the whole look.

This Dark Knight reportedly rides around Chiba, Japan, fairly often and always in full Batman regalia. Presumably he’s out fighting injustice, but we kind of also like the idea that he’s just running errands like this, too.

Regardless of why he’s doing it, we have to praise Batman’s concentration. He’s in broad daylight in full costume but doesn’t break focus in this video even for a moment. Though, you would think the Caped Crusader would try to be stealthier.

Tesla Model S now the least-stolen car in the US | Sebastian Blanco

Filed under: , ,

tesla model s red

When is a Honda Accord more appealing than a Tesla Model S? When you’re a thief. The Accord continues to reign as the most-stolen car in the US but the Model S is now claiming a new and interesting title: the least-stolen car in America. Last year, it wasn’t even on the list. Of course, sometimes a Model S is stolen and the most famous case ended with tragic results.

Last year there was an eight-way tie for “least-stolen.”

For the record, last year there was an eight-way tie for “least-stolen,” made up mostly of SUVs and CUVs. The rankings were listed by a value called “claim frequency,” which is how many were reported stolen per 1,000 units produced and where lower means it is stolen less. With a 0.4, these were the vehicles least wanted by thieves in 2013: Dodge Journey, Volkswagen Tiguan, Audi A4, Acura RDX, Toyota Matrix, Lexus HS 250 hybrid, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson. This year, the Tesla clocked in with a 0.15. The average vehicle has a claim frequency of 3.51.

Tesla has, of course, worked hard to make the Model S an unlikely target. It can be shut down remotely, it can be tracked and it has a hacker princess and cash prizes working to protect from other attacks. Tesla’s Alexis Georgeson told AutoblogGreen that Tesla hasn’t been able to verify the “least-stolen” moniker but said that, “We take the security of our cars very seriously and relentlessly continue to improve our vehicles via over-the-air updates, an ability unique to the industry. We will continue to work to stay ahead by providing the most sophisticated tools and technologies in our cars and working closely with security researchers to identify and address potential vulnerabilities.”

Value Walk says that another reason for the low theft rate is that there might be very low demand for Model S parts, since the cars are still under warranty and there aren’t many on the road. Still, the claim frequency is a fair comparison, and by that metric the Tesla Model S looks just awful to at least one group of people.

Chevrolet Tahoe Z71

After what we’re guessing was an unintentional leak via a press photo, Chevrolet has confirmed that it will be offering its long-lived Z71 trim on both the 2015 Tahoe and Suburban.

The company wouldn’t offer any additional details on what the packages would add to the full-size, body-on-frame SUVs, instead indicating that a more formal announcement that would be made in late September.

The Z71 trim is currently offered on the Silverado pickup, and adds, among other things, an uprated, off-road suspension, a locking rear-differential, all-terrain tires and a unique appearance package.

Along with the Z71 pack, 2015 Tahoe and Suburban owners can look forward to a hands-free liftgate and 4G LTE wireless connectivity through Chevrolet’s MyLink system.

Scroll down for the brief press release from GM.

Helsinki could make owning your own car a thing of the past | Sebastian Blanco

Filed under: , , ,

TRAVEL HELSINKI

Helsinki, Finland is no stranger to transportation alternatives. From EV testing to a solid public transportation system, the northern European city knows that private cars are not the only option to get around. In the future, though, private cars might not be a logical option at anyone living there.

Navigant calls it “the final piece of the puzzle that makes this scheme truly transformative.”

According to Navigant Research, Helsinki is working on an integrated system that would let users have one account that pays for carsharing, bikesharing, public transport and more. Navigant says that combining all of the various transportation modes into one payment network is “the final piece of the puzzle that makes this scheme truly transformative.” It’s certainly bigger and broader than anything we’ve heard of before to encourage people to give up their private vehicles.

In an urban environment, having simplified access to whatever method of conveyance you need at any given moment is idea. Want to bike the half-mile to the bakery? Get your ride on. Got to go to the hardware store for a load of fertilizer and a shovel? Check out a carsharing vehicle. Want to take the family to the zoo? Streetcar it is. Minimizing the hassle to access all of these options is going to make the day-to-day realities of private car insurance, refueling and repairs seem a lot less appealing. Or, as Navigant puts it: “The concept is the transportation version of other businesses that are moving from selling a product to selling the service or utility the consumer wants from that product. Planned obsolescence no longer makes good business sense, and consumers can benefit from constant improvements in technology.” Rear the whole thing here.

2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG goes Unplugged in Detroit | Steven J. Ewing

Filed under: , , , ,

Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG

As a reformed hooligan, there is still nothing more paralyzing to me than flashing red and blue lights matched with the sound of a siren, on a car headed right toward me. But it happens. And it happened while I stood in a cold Detroit parking lot taking the photos of the matte black 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG you see here. On its own, the Merc (“Darth Benz” as my friend Eric aptly named it) looks all sorts of suspicious, with its murdered-out look only broken by chrome accents and the red brake calipers lurking behind those wheels. But I wasn’t doing anything wrong. For once.

Two cruisers with four uniformed patrolmen pulled up, inspected the car, questioned me, and after realizing that everything was copacetic, two of ‘em left. But the other pair hung out a bit longer, asking to see the engine, look inside, and finally, ask me for a ride down Fort Street. I happily obliged, and joked about it being a shame that I couldn’t really open up the AMG G-Wagen for them, having to keep to the posted speed limit, after all. But the cop riding shotgun laughed, and instructed me to “hit it,” when pulling away from a stoplight. So I did. And he laughed. Maniacally.

That’s why the G63 AMG goes down as one of the best car’s I’ve driven this year. It’s not so much a dynamic masterpiece as it is a vehicle that just oozes cool across many levels, and is hysterically, ridiculously fun to drive. Everyone likes it, and it’s easy to see why. First up, the twin-turbocharged, 5.5-liter V8 underhood, with 536 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque, with a brutal aural tone to match. Next, there’s the absolutely unstoppable off-road ability (three locking differentials!). And beyond all of that, there’s the style, the shape, the luxury, and the exclusivity that’s all baked into the G63 package.

Because of this, I demanded we get Darth Benz on film. So as the final bits of our endlessly long cold season came to a close, I hit the streets of Detroit with our video crew in tow for another installment of Autoblog Unplugged. Again, the G-Wagen isn’t really built for tackling curves – instead, it’s all about the presence, and the noise. It’s one of the coolest vehicles I’ve ever driven. Check it out in the video above.

Volvo aligning model range into three families | Noah Joseph

Filed under:

Volvo XC60 and XC90

Things have been slow in Gothenburg the past few years, but they’re picking up speed. The only new model Volvo has released in the past four years since it was taken over by Geely – that being the V40 introduced in 2012 – started its development when the company was still under Ford’s umbrella. But now the Swedish automaker is preparing to launch a volley of new models, and the new XC90 is only the starting point.

Volvo has set out to align its product portfolio into three model families – 40, 60 and 90 – each with three body-styles: sedan, wagon and crossover. (Volvo presented a tidy little table, which we’ve replicated below, to outline what it has in store.) That means a new S40 sedan and XC40 crossover as well as a replacement for the current V40 wagon, all to be based on a new platform shared with Geely. It also means replacements for the current S60, V60 and XC60 to be based on the modular SPA platform that underpins the new XC90, as well as a new S90 sedan to replace the S80 and a new V90 wagon to succeed the V70 and move it up-market above the V60.

All of these models are set to arrive within the next four years as Volvo moves to replace its entire lineup by 2019 and subsequently move to more competitive seven-to-eight-year product life-cycles. But as aggressively as Volvo is pursuing this renewal of its core models, they’re not the only things Gothenburg has in store. Keep reading below to learn how Volvo’s model line will flesh out over the coming years.

Saab owners NEVS denied creditor protection by Swedish court | Chris Bruce

Filed under: , , , ,

SWEDEN-AUTO-COMPANY-SAAB

The story of Saab is practically a Greek tragedy at this point. The quirky Swedish automaker that was once known as a pioneer of affordable turbocharging has been followed by years of news that just seemed to keep getting worse. At this point, maybe the brand name should be allowed to fade away into the ether and be remembered for the good times that it gave us.

Saab’s latest predicament is that its parent National Electric Vehicle Sweden (or NEVS) has been denied protection from its creditors by the Swedish courts. According to Reuters, the judges called the business’ financing plan “vague and completely undocumented.” A company spokesperson told Reuters that it plans to appeal.

Seemingly in reaction to the court’s decision, NEVS posted a press release on its website announcing that the company had applied “for a reorganization to create more time for the ongoing negotiations.” The automaker continues to claim that it’s negotiating with two global automakers to sell a portion of the company, possibly Mahindra, but the process is taking longer than it originally predicted. It seems a distinct possibility that this reorganization attempt is simply a way to buy extra time.

With no protection, the Enforcement Authority in Sweden could force NEVS to sell property to pay creditors, of which it allegedly has over 90. It said in the statement, “loss of such assets could obstruct finalizing a contract,” with the automakers it’s negotiating with and dash even the scant hopes the business has of being saved. Scroll down to read the beleaguered company’s full release.

A man, his motorcycle, and his Macaw | Jeremy Korzeniewski

Macaw flying with owner on scooter

To those of us who weren’t blessed with feathers and wings – hey, at least we’ve got thumbs, right? – the ability to take to the air, travel huge distances from amazing heights, only to land right back where we started from is the stuff of fantasies. In fact, it’s probably the most common answer to the age-old “Which super power would you most like to have” question of our youth.

Watching the video above, it’s easy to see why flight is such an amazing method of travel. While our protagonists require two wheels, gasoline for their internal combustion engine and a heavy dose of concentration in order not to end up with a terrible case of road rash, their fine feathered friend looks to have a much easier path, the Macaw floating as it does across an invisible cushion of air.

We’re jealous. Not just of the Macaw’s ability to fly, but also of the man who’s bright green best friend accompanies him on these wind-in-the-hair coastal journeys. Watch the video above to see what we mean.

Starbucks to trawl for college students with food trucks | Chris Bruce

Filed under: , ,

Starbucks Coffee Truck

The old joke about Starbucks is that there are so many of the coffee shops across America that in some places you can sit in one location sipping a pumpkin spice latte and actually be able see another one of its stores across the street. If you think the brand is everywhere now, it’s going to be truly ubiquitous at three universities this fall with a pilot program that has food trucks serving coffee to caffeine-starved students and faculty.

According to BusinessWeek, Starbucks has about 11,500 stores nationwide, but the company wants to increase its presence on college campuses. Therefore, it’s launching this pilot program to see how things work by using trucks. They’re already following herds of students at Arizona State University and James Madison University in Virginia, and Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina gets its coffee-delivery vehicle on September 18.

The true genius behind this plan is that the trucks aren’t just going to sit in one place all day. Instead, they are moving around throughout the day to give students their first fix in the morning and be right there in the afternoon to top off their cups. Starbucks is even promising to adjust the trucks’ hours as needed on each campus to suit customers, even staying open later than the dining halls in some cases. The company clearly knows once you get people hooked; they are going to keep coming back for more. Scroll down to read Starbucks’ announcement of the pilot program.
