The Infiniti Project Black S is the best sort of hybrid

Hybrids can be earnest, sensible ways to boost fuel economy, or they can be like the Infiniti Project Black S and borrow lashings of F1 technology to deliver ridiculous on-road performance. Handiwork of Infiniti and the Renault F1 Team, Project Black S may look like a body-kitted Q60, but it's actually something a whole lot more interesting.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid SUV and Coupe promise 670hp

The Porsche Taycan just declared a new EV war where speed isn’t enough

Going fast in an electric car once is easy. Going fast over and over again, though, is much more impressive, not to mention far tougher, and that's where the Porsche Taycan is counting on carving out a niche in the EV segment.

Tesla cars will soon stream YouTube and Netflix but only when it’s safe

Tesla cars will soon stream YouTube and Netflix but only when it’s safe

It seems that Elon Musk envisions Tesla's cars as more than transportation machines. Not so long ago, the electric car maker started adding the ability to play games on cars' displays. That naturally requires more interaction than some drivers and passengers might be comfortable with but what about passive forms of entertainment?
