The 5 Best Used Hatchbacks For Under $10,000

Order the Chevy SS Now Before It's Gone

Treat yourself with a V8-powered muscle sedan

If there is one car we could save from impending doom it's the Chevrolet SS. Bang for your buck, the Chevy SS is one of the coolest sports sedans out there. The thing is just wicked-awesome. It comfortably seats five, has a 415 hp Corvette-derived V8 engine that shoves power to the rear wheels and can be had with a manual transmission (something the Dodge Charger doesn't).

Autos 101: How Launch Control Works

The guide to having a lot of fun in a fast car

If you want to be fast in any situation, whether it be in professional racing or just having some fun, you need to be able to launch your vehicle properly off the line. Generally, this means maximizing traction and not putting down so much power that your wheels lose grip.

First Drive: 2017 Hyundai Ioniq

This Prius fighter makes a lot of sense no matter the variant

Hyundai's plan of attack with the Ioniq is three-pronged. The company hits all of the alternative powertrain crowds with one well-designed and built platform. Hyundai offers the Ioniq as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid and fully electric model. We've been itching to get in all three since the company announced the vehicle, and recently we were granted that wish.

The Rumor Mill: Dodge Demon

Dodge's craziest use of obscene amounts of horsepower yet

Apparently, the folks over at Dodge have gone completely insane. The rumors are that the 2018 Dodge SRT Demon, which is based on the Challenger, will be 215 pounds lighter than the Dodge Hellcat and have more horsepower than the Hellcat, which has 707 hp. It'll also have a wider body. Rejoice!

Life Sucks When Your $4.5 Million Lambo Gets Recalled

We knew the Lambo Veneno was hot, just not this hot

Exotic cars from Italy are pretty hot. Literally. It seems that Ferraris and Lambos are notorious for going all solar flare on owners as evidenced across the web. Recently, in a rare instance, perhaps the ultimate fire-prone car has now been recalled, and it's the uber-limited Lamborghini Veneno.

GEAR UP: 5 Best Modern Car Movies

Wheels and the silver screen make great bedfellows

There are some great classic films out there, and we encourage people to watch them. The thing is, there's a lot of great car movies that have come out in the last decade. Most of them you've probably seen or at least heard of. We thought it'd be a good idea to put together a roundup of the five best recent car movies. So pick one of these up, pop some popcorn and relax for an hour or two.

The Story of the Tesla Good Samaritan

No car is worth more than someone else's life.

Often times, we don't know when or how we will become heroes, it's just happens to be thrust upon some people. This is definitely true for German Tesla Model S driver, Manfred Kick. In order to save a fellow motorist who seemed to be having some trouble, he did what many of us usually wouldn't do in the same situation. Incurring damage to your own vehicle to potentially save a life is actually a noble act, even so much so that Tesla founder Elon Musk sought to in a way reward it.

10 of the Most Memorable Batmobiles From the Big and Small Screen

The Dark Knight has had a lot of really sweet rides

From the classic TV show, to cartoons, movies and video games, the Batmobile has undergone numerous transformations. Some a sleek and sexy, while others are utterly futuristic or military in nature. Whatever form the Batmobile may have taken, it will continue to evolve on the small and big screens. Here's a rundown on some of the best Batmobiles we've ever come across.

Marvel Movie Magic Boosts Automotive Brand Status and Sales

Sexy wheels, cinema and TV make beautiful music together

America loves movies, and they don't even have to be good ones to make millions at the box office (*cough* Transformers). But their effect goes far beyond just entertainment and box office revenue. Movies can have a serious influence on spending and the minds of consumers, especially movie franchises as big as the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

How to Avoid a Craigslist Car Scam

Don't let yourself get taken for a ride, a really bad ride.

Most of us have been there, looking for a car anywhere they may be. You search used car lots, chain dealerships, car shopping websites, and of course, the hit or miss site called Craigslist. The classifieds website that allows you to post and respond to ads about anything. Because of the nature of the site, open to just anyone who wants to post something, there's a pretty high chance you'll run into people trying to run a scam on those who aren't privy to such activities.

The Ferrari 812 Superfast Keeps the V12 Magic Alive

Screw turbocharging. This is the sweetest car music on earth.

We mourned what we thought was the end of the Ferrari V12 with the pervasiveness of turbocharging in the industry, as well as the use of turbos on Ferrari's new 488 GTB. Sure, with turbos, there's mad power, but something of purity is lost in the equation. The truly good news today is that Ferrari is bringing the successor to the F12 to market in the form of the 812 Superfast that has an even more magnificent V12 engine under the hood.

The Pagani Huyara Roadster Might Be the Sexiest Thing on Four Wheels

Forget about saving up for one. They're all gone.

No one in the world does cars like Horacio Pagani. Argentinian born, he made his way through the ranks of Renault and then Lamborghini. Eventually, he broke off and went his own way, forming Pagani Automobili S.p.A. in 1992. Their first car was the remarkable Zonda, which took a whopping seven years to complete, and then the insane Huayra. Now, they're showing off the open top version of their supercar, and it's gorgeous.

Mitsubishi Resurrects the Eclipse Name and Slaps it on a Crossover

A once great name finds a new automotive segment

The Eclipse sports car once defined the brand. That car disappeared back in 2012, and though no-one really lamented the disappearance of its once-loved sports car, it certainly hurt the brand's image. Mitsubishi has confirmed it's resurrecting the Eclipse nameplate to use it on a compact crossover. Chrysler re-used the Pacifica name from a big wagon to a minivan, so why can't Mitsu pull the same act?

Autonomous Driving's Two-Sided Effect on Organ Donation

Imagine a world where you can just get a new liver without wait times

The world is constantly reaching amazing heights as time goes on, while science fiction becomes science fact. In no time at all, the streets will more than likely be full of self-driving vehicles, ensuring safety and relative order on the roads. While we all know that is definitely a good thing, there are things that some may see as minor drawbacks because of the new technology.
