Still—this represents one of the biggest discounts on a Corvette, according to GM Authority, which GM doesn’t generally often have to discount too much unless there’s a new generation on the way, which is the case now with the new mid-engine C8 Corvette. … [Read more...] about You Can Get Over $9,000 Off A New C7 Corvette If You Already Own A Corvette

The six-speed manual transmission uses an aluminum shifter linkage and it’s glorious. Crack. Crack. Crack. It’s supremely snappy and satisfying; the kind of shifter you’ll be telling your grandkids about, as they laugh and hover away on their hoverboards wondering what the hell a “shifter” was. A six-speed shiftable automatic is available too, but it’s lame. … [Read more...] about Why The 2020 Lotus Evora GT Feels Like A Uniquely Futuristic Relic
When my colleague wrote about the initial spy shots, he called the look “uninspiring,” which, I think, is fair. The Korean-spec model shown in the new press images shows Lincoln-esque taillights, very Ford Taurus-ish fender vents, and Volvo-ian headlights. Still, for the most part, it actually looks okay, and I like the new, more aggressive hood: … [Read more...] about The 2020 Genesis G90 Looks Okay But I’m Not Sure About the Droopy Grille
You do not need to experience such things. You do not need to see millionaires and billionaires scowling at each other on a golf course, from behind their Delahayes and Bugattis and Hispano-Suizas. You have better things to do with your time, like hoarding personal resources ahead of the apocalypse. … [Read more...] about News Of The Ruling Class Out Of Pebble Beach Be Damned!

Sieverts describe the amount of ionizing radiation that can be absorbed by human tissue. Natural radiation exposure amounts to between 2,000 to 3,000 microsieverts each year, so people hanging out near these hot spots would exceed their annual dose in around two to three days, according to Reuters. While upsetting, it’s not excessively dangerous or life-threatening. It’s not until people are exposed to levels between 1,000 to 3,500 millisieverts (1 millisievert is 1,000 microsieverts) that radiation sickness and life-threatening symptoms set in. By comparison, a single chest x-ray yields about 100 microsieverts (0.1 millisieverts) of radiation exposure. … [Read more...] about Nuclear Radiation Hot Spots Found at Starting Point of Japan’s 2020 Olympic Torch Relay
Every year, Pantone picks a color the company believes will become unavoidable everywhere the following year. In 2019, they suggested coral would make its way into popular culture (I’m not so sure it did), and in 2018, everything was ultra violet (It absolutely was.) So what shade awaits us in the new decade, beginning with 2020? “Classic Blue,” not to be mistaken with Cerulean (Pantone’s Color of the Year 2000), Aqua Sky (their 2003 pick), Blue Turquoise (2005), Blue Iris (2008) and Serenity (2016). According to their website, “Classic Blue” is “a timeless and enduring blue hue” meant to “highlight our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.” That seems vaguely political for Pantone, but go off. “Classic Blue” is also meant to inspire “a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, offering refuge,” fostering … [Read more...] about Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2020 Is Boring as Hell!
