The Mission One is the brainchild of Mission Motors, who claim it the world’s fastest electric production bike. With an estimated range of 150 miles, boasting a top speed of 150 mph, and generating over 100 ft-lbs of torque from point zero (as electric engines offer 100% torque from 0 rpm), the bike’s stats are […]


I would never say women cannot drive. That would be sexy and wrong. I mean, you cannot verify that 100% of these are women, but, ummm, well…most of them clearly are.

Fisker unveiled its Sunset, which is a 2-door Karma convertible, yesterday […]


Take a long look at the above photo. It’s GM’s booth at the 2009 NAIAS in Detroit, the most important car show in America. And no, it’s not after-hours. This is mid-show. Yowzers. I haven’t such emptiness since that Heidi Montag wedding (Zing!). Obviously, a very slow year for Detroit. A consultant who used to […]
