By info@topspeed.com (Sidd Dhimaan)
When Rivian revealed its R1T truck, there was barely any information known about the Tesla pickup truck. However, a few details slowly started to emerge and it looked like the latter will be more of a performance-oriented truck. In the meanwhile, Rivian took an alternate approach to become a household name in EV adventure lifestyle segment. Just around the time when Tesla was basking in its Under $50,000 news, Rivian started promoting its R1T truck as an EV camper instead... [read more]

The Tesla Cybertruck Has Everyones Attention, But What I Really Want Is the Cyberquad

By info@topspeed.com (Kirby Garlitos)
The Tesla Cybertruck is justifiably garnering a lot of the attention today, but just because thats the case, that doesnt mean we should completely ignore its little companion. Revealed late in the Cybertrucks debut is the Tesla ATV that we now know is called the Cyberquad. The ATV was unveiled largely as a late-game surprise to show that it could fit in the 6.5-foot bed of the Cybertruck. There are currently no plans to build it, but if Tesla had... [read more]

The arrival of the Tesla Cybertruck has sent shockwaves throughout the auto industry. The all-new electric truck burst into the scene last night in Los Angeles and among the litany of important and breathtaking details that were revealed, none were as surprising as the trucks price tag, or price tags depending on the trim that you get.

Is the Tesla Cybertruck Really Faster or "Better" Than the Porsche 911?

By info@topspeed.com (Ciprian Florea)
The 2021 Tesla Cybertruck just broke cover at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show and we are still struggling to cope with its polygonal design. But weirdness aside, the 2021 Cybertruck promises to be an extremely capable and fast truck. Back in June 2019, Elon Musk said that the electric truck will be a better sports car than a basic Porsche 911. The figures confirm this apparently insane claim, so let's see how much better the 2021 Cybertruck really is... [read more]

Tesla Cybertruck Pickup Renderings versus the Real Deal

By info@topspeed.com (Sidd Dhimaan)
After making us wait for years, Elon Musk finally unveiled the Cybertruck at a standalone event in Los Angeles. The Cybertruck breaks the orthodox styling of a pickup truck that weve been seeing for a century now. In fact, the truck looks so much different from the ones in production today that it does not even feature Teslas logo anywhere. No one can mistake it to be anything else. Also, there were very few renderings that matched the actual truck... [read more]

Tesla Cybertruck Photo Gallery

By info@topspeed.com (Tudor Rus)
Tesla just dropped the Cybertruck and we must say, its sci-fi looks are unlike anything that's currently on the market. The Cybertruck is bulletproof, has a starting sticker of $39,000, it can carry a matching ATV inside the bed, but it can also pull 14,000 pounds, clear the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds, and spring from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds.

Return of the Harley-Davidson F-150

From 2000 to 2011, Ford and Harley-Davidson (you know, that motorcycle company in Milwaukee) have teamed up to put the Harley touch on F-150 pickups, and in 2002-2003 the package was applied to the supercharged Lightning, which even in stock form was a fast truck. The connection is obvious to fans of both Ford and Harley-Davidson; both companies started business the same year, 1903. The H-D package was mostly appearance-based, with distinctive Harley features. After a few years without the... [read more]

The Aston Martin DBX Is Cool, but Wouldnt You Rather Have a Lamborghini Huracan?

By info@topspeed.com (Ciprian Florea)
The 2021 Aston Martin DBX debuted as the company's first-ever SUV at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show. As expected, the 2021 DBX is a high-performance luxury crossover that shares underpinnings and a beefed-up V-8 engine borrowed from the DB11 and Vantage. It's as cool as coupe-style luxury crossovers get, but it's also highly expensive at $192,986 before options. And that's almost as much as a Lamborghini Huracan.

Tesla Cybertruck

By info@topspeed.com (Mark McNabb)
It was back in January of 2016 that Elon Musk admitted in an on-camera interview that Tesla is quite likely to build a truck in the future.

By info@topspeed.com (Robert Moore)
We've been told that the reveal of the Tesla Cybertruck will be live-streamed at 11:00 PM EST (8 PM PST) but we've yet to see an official stream anywhere on the internet. Musk has refrained from using the official Tesla Youtube channel for live streams, so it probably won't happen there, and your best bet is to see the official stream on social media or the Tesla homepage, which was the case last time.

Ford Is Limiting the Mustang Mach-E Production in the First Year, But It Wont Sell That Many Anyway

By info@topspeed.com (Kirby Garlitos)
Ford president of automotive, Joe Hinrichs, has revealed that the Blue Oval plans to build 50,000 units of the Mustang Mach-E in its first year of production. As eye-popping as that figure sounds, its actually capped to that number, at least in part, because of battery availability. The volume is enough to raise some eyebrows, but not at all surprising. The more important question is whether Ford can actually sell 50,000 units of the Mustang Mach-E in its first year... [read more]

Is There Really a Difference Between the Audi RS Q8 and the Lamborghini Urus?

By info@topspeed.com (Ciprian Florea)
Audi just unveiled the 2021 RS Q8, and it's pretty much a Lamborghini Urus with a different design. While most RS and S models in the SUV range aren't as spectacular, the RS Q8 steps in as a Lambo Urus in disguise. Built on the same underpinnings and fitted with the same twin-turbo V-8 engine, the RS Q8 is the most powerful SUV in the Audi lineup and almost as quick as the Urus. How do they compare?

The two most forwarded possibilities where a sleek, super-luxurious sedan and a high-riding vehicle of sorts similar to the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, yet a new report from Bloomberg says that the Galibier could morph into a grand tourer or crossover motivated by an all-electric powertrain, provided Volkswagen AG greenlights the project.

Indeed, instant electric torque is useful for filling in the inherent lag of a turbocharged engine, and the Mercedes -AMG GLE63 S is the automakers latest example of using electricity for fun as well...
