Mazda Celebrates 50th Anniversary of the Rotary Engine

Hopefully, a new rotary engine is not very far away

Mazda's love affair with the rotary engine is well-known. The first Mazda car with a rotary engine went on sale May 30, 1967. It was the Mazda Cosmo Sport, a car that has now gained legendary status among sports car enthusiasts. The Cosmo Sport was just the start of what would be a long and successful run of cars with rotary engines, including the RX-7, RX-8, and the 1991 Le Mans winning Mazda 787B.

A major milestone to reach after 54 years of sports car heaven

Porsche recently finished building the millionth 911. The model has been zooming around roadways around the world for 54 years. Many of those models are still on the road due to the fact that Porsche claims more than 70 percent of all 911s the company has ever made still drive from time to time.

The Lucid Motors Air is an Electrified Steal at $52,500

The fact that it's cheaper than a Tesla S isn't an accident

If there's a serious competitor to the Tesla Model S on the horizon, it's clearly the Lucid Motors Air, a brand new luxury electrified sedan that wowed at CES just a couple of short months ago. Pricing has just been revealed, and it looks like no accident that it undercuts the Model S.

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.

Conceptually Awesome: Jaguar C-X75

From concept, to death, to front and center in a Bond movie

Back in 2010, Jaguar unveiled a supercar called the C-X75. It was the most technologically advanced car the company had ever produced. It featured a sexy exterior crafted from carbon fiber. The original concept was to use two micro gas turbines as generators for four electric motors attached to each wheel.

A Gallery of Beauties from the 2017 Chicago Auto Show

No Fiat 500L in this bunch, and for good reason.

This year's Chicago Auto Show didn't have any really huge debuts, but that doesn't mean there wasn't a lot to stare at. We're always surprised with how many great looking cars and trucks are on the market, and that means the whole gamut. Economy cars, crossovers, pickup trucks, sedans, hatchbacks and wagons (notice, we're purposely leaving minivans out of it).

The Dodge Durango SRT is a 7-Passenger Missile

It can tow, carry the family and drag race all at once

While VW turns to electric cars in the wake of its diesel scandal and Ford contemplates the fate of the Mustang by stating the probability of a hybrid Stangy future, Dodge (and really all of FCA) seems to be focused on living in the moment. And right now that means putting high horsepower engines in just about anything. Most recently, this has taken shape of the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT.

Serious coin gets you some serious Brit retro

Land Rover has a special "Reborn" program that restores and sells classic vehicles with a factory warranty. In the past, the program restored several Series 1 models. This time around they went with the classic Range Rover. The Reborn Range Rovers will be 100 percent original and Land Rover's special program plans to build 10 of the classic SUVs.

Conceptually Awesome: 1968 Alfa Romeo 33 Bertone Carabo

It just might have been inspired by an axe head

As much as we love modern concept cars with their technological advancements, it's the ones from way back that get us going the most. Here's one that's not on everyone's radar, but it stands as an icon for the supercar that it inspired. The 1968 Alfa Romeo 33 Carabo by Bertone was one of the premier "wedge" cars of its time, and it was as exotic as a concept could get back then.

LEGENDS: Porsche 959

Perhaps the most technologically advanced car of the '80s

In the late 1980s, Porsche, then a fairly small independent company, created a Group B rally car that was possibly the most technologically advanced and impressive car of the whole era. Today it is still a wonder of automotive engineering and will dominate just about everything else on the road.

Jeep's Wrangler Shortcut Concept is Rugged, Retro and Really, Really Red

A model like this would generate lines around the block

Ah, the Jeep Shortcut Concept. The CJ-5-inspired Wrangler Concept vehicle that stole our hearts at the 2016 Annual Easter Jeep Safari. It was so red, so short and so very cool. Like a badass off-road red roadster, the Wrangler Shortcut stays in our mind like that really attractive person you saw on the train. If only you'd gone over to say hi. Then maybe, just maybe, you wouldn't have to live knowing that somewhere out there the beautiful thing roams alone, likely unappreciated.

The Nissan Vmotion 2.0 Concept Casts a Vision for the Next Altima

Instead of busy, it's actually an edgy delight

Hell, the only cars we don't seem to mind from their lineup are the TItan, Armada, Rogue, and of course the GT-R. Especially when it comes to being overdesigned, the Maxima and Murano just offend us. But Nissan's not done with the use of too many lines. At least they seem to have figured out how to do with with the Vmotion 2.0 Concept car from this year's Detroit Auto Show.

Ford Gussies Up the F-150 and Adds a Diesel, Too

This is how you make a great truck even better

You might think that Ford would just leave its best-selling F-150 pickup alone for 2018. Don't fix what isn't broken, right? However, the blue oval has decided that it's important to keep soldiering on. The company's mid-cycle refresh of the popular pickup consists of minor tweaks to the exterior, some new engine options (including a first-ever diesel) and some interior upgrades.

Honda's 2018 Odyssey Isn't as Dramatic as We Thought It Would Be

That doesn't keep it from being an excellent family vehicle

Honda's Odyssey is a well-loved and well-respected model among those who covet family-hauling, grocery-toting minivans. As good as the current Odyssey is, it's a little outdated. Especially when you look to the competition. While the new Honda Odyssey is certainly a move in the right direction, we were expecting something a little more dramatic on the outside.
