The ur-hot-hatch continues to impress the hell out of us.

Throwback Thursday: Celebrating Four Generations of Toyota Supra

Remembering Toyota's all-time best-handling luxury sports car.

This week is no less a walk down memory lane as we feature four generations of The Toyota Supra, the luxury sports car that sped its way into infamy from 1978 to 2002. With its look, drawn largely from Toyota 2000GT - itself deeply rooted in the classic tradition of 60's Grand Tourers.

Live Out Your 007 Fantasies with the Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition

The oil-slick generator is not standard, nor is it legal.

Everybody loves a special-edition car - at least according to how many roll out each year, they do. But, most of the time, that special edition is tenuously related to the car. Aston Martin's latest special edition, though, reinforces a connection between two things that have been together since bread and water - James Bond, and Aston Martin. Thus, the DB9 GT Bond Edition should be something truly special.

The Africa Twin: Is Honda's new "Adventure" Bike the Return of a Classic?

Honda's CRF1000L is meant to do more than cause nostalgia.

From its debut in 1986 (as the XRV650) to its retirement in 2003 (as the XRV750), Honda's Africa Twin has been one of the most beloved dual-sports ever. Rugged, responsive, easy to fix, and (at the time it was released) at the leading edge of technology. Honda's new Africa Twin, the CRF1000L, is a totally new animal, but that doesn't mean it isn't worthy of the African Twin colors.

Recall Roundup: Jeep Windshield Wipers and Harley-Davidson Fuel Issues

Let's see what's new in automotive recalls this week.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has issued a recall covering 158,671 examples of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee crossover, due to an issue with the windshield wipers. Evidently, operating the wipers in dry conditions can lead to a buildup of static electricity, which might accumulate and short out a windshield-wiper control module. If that happens, the wipers may not work when needed, which isn't good when you're driving into a torrential downpour.

Land Rover Is Leading the Way in See-Through Technology

Invisible trailers and cargo-monitoring will keep your horses safe.

Invisibility is definitely high on most people's Top 5 Superpowers I Want list; it's a power that has obsessed mankind since the time of Plato. But despite decades of investigation by Hollywood special effects people, true invisibility remains elusive. Thankfully, Land Rover has figured out a way around the problem, and they're using it to make trailers see-through.

Here Are the Interstates with the Most Drunk Driving Deaths Per Resident

Get your act together, Rocky Mountain states. Seriously.

Are you going to be driving through the Rocky Mountains at some point in the near future? Will that driving take place later in the evening? If so, you'd best be careful; and you'd better not have anything to drink, either. According to a new study put out by legal-service company Avvo, states in the western half of our nation tend to attract more fatal drunk-driving collisions than anywhere else.

Bang for Your Buck: 2015 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler vs. the Used-Car Market

Checking out a new car's competition from the used-car market.

It's no surprise that buyers often compare both new and used cars. For a given price point, the market for potential cars explodes once you start looking away from new cars alone. Sure, you might give up the warranty, but if you're looking for something unique, used cars provide a good value ... provided you pick the right one. Bang for Your Buck takes a look at five used cars you could get with the money you'd spend on the new car we've tested recently.

Watch this 124-MPH Car Crash Where No Humans Were Harmed, Or Even Involved

Switzerland's Dynamic Test Center is crash-porn central.

The sight of a car crashing into a stationary car with untrammeled velocity is a devastating sight and enough to convince all drivers to take necessary caution on the road. And, that is the intention of Dynamic Test Center, who videotaped the crash for its YouTube page.

The Upcoming Mercedes-AMG DTM Car Is Somehow Even Meaner Than Before

Next year's DTM season cannot come soon enough.

Next year will be a big one for Mercedes-AMG and its participation in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) European racing series. It's rolling out an all-new DTM car to do battle with a very competitive field. Just like the last one, this new DTM car will be modeled after the Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe, but, after taking a look at the sketches, it looks far more aggressive than any street car could be.

Uber Hires Jeep Hackers to Help Build Self-Driving Fleet

Miller and Valasek join Autonomous Car Lab in Pittsburgh.

Despite recent legal complications, ride-sharing company Uber is continuing to invest heavily in its future, as well as the future of self-driving car technology. Uber has made no secret of its plan to replace human drivers with self-driving cars, but recent incidents of high-profile connected-car hacks have made security a top priority.

A Dream Deferred: Honda Won't Bring the S660 to the United States After All

It wasn't that important, but damn it, we still wanted one.

Honda is on the verge of a performance renaissance in the United States. After a decade or so of beige cars that can be vaguely described as "sporty," the Japanese automaker is once again going to focus on what made its old cars great-driving excitement. There were rumors that one specific Japanese model would come our way as part of this rebirth - the S660 roadster - but now, we've learned that our open-top dreams have been deferred.

The Oshkosh Defense L-ATV Is the Official Replacement for the Humvee

This is where billions of your tax dollars will soon go.

The Humvee is the quintessential military vehicle. Before becoming a passenger car for some strange reason, the AM General HMMWV (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle) was the ride of choice for America's troops in overseas conflicts. But it's getting old, so the government sought out a replacement. Now, we know what that replacement is - say hello to the Oshkosh Defense L-ATV.

The 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum Gets a Premium Hi-Fi Sound System

Technology used to recreate acoustics of European concert halls.

The Ford Explorer has been around so long that it can actually use nostalgia to help revive sales now that gas is relatively cheap and people aren't ashamed to buy SUVs anymore. The Explorer weathered dismal sales in the post-recession 2000s and now, with its new Platinum Edition, the Explorer is being repositioned as a luxury SUV, thanks in part to its new Sony premium entertainment system.
