Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk has a complicated outlook when it comes to the future of "smart" machines. He's warned about the dangers of strong artificial intelligence, but he's all-in on the lesser forms of artificial smarts, like those at the core of Teslas. He's also bullish on self-driving cars, and this week Musk went so far as to declare that they may completely replace the cars we drive today.  Read More

If the Bloodhound Supersonic Car (SSC) team makes good in its attempt to break the land speed record, the car will be traveling at 1,000 mph (1,609 km/h). At such speeds, the wheels will be spinning so fast that hitting even the smallest pebble could be catastrophic. To protect both the car and the driver, the designers of Bloodhound have had to come up with some high-tech answers to building the wheels and protecting against their failure.  Read More

The camouflaged prototype stretches its legs

Believe it or not, Land Rover has decided that an Evoque convertible is a thing worthy of reality, even after three full years of hindsight. At the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, Great Britain's luxury SUV marque announced that the Range Rover Evoque Convertible is heading to the streets. Though it didn't have an updated concept car to show on its stand, it did release a rather interesting video of the Evoque Convertible prototype navigating subterranean tunnels.  Read More

Bentley focused its attention on revealing an all-new concept coupe at this year's Geneva Motor Show, so there was no Bentayga SUV as we thought there might be. That's not to say that utility vehicles didn't have any presence in Geneva, though. While they weren't as strong a fleet as sports cars or concept cars, crossovers and 4x4s had a solid presence anchored by the global debuts of some extremely rugged off-roaders.  Read More

One of the biggest hurdles that electric cars face in going mainstream is range anxiety – that dreadful realization that you're in the middle of nowhere and your car might not reach the next charging station.
