The Porsche 911 Dakar

Read More

Porsche is so good at shit like this… The market for a “safari” 911 is not huge, but the impact of one existing? Brilliant.

Slyde King 2k

Interesting idea for a torch… Essentially, it’s a flashlight in one mode and a work light in an other. Pretty smart and not too expensive either.

I mean… I don’t know who wants to spend $400 on a mini hoop, but damn… Reigning Champ wasn’t messing around when they built this thing.

The Manx 2.0

Read More

Meyers Manx dune buggies are coveted bits of dune hardware that haven’t been made in over 60-years. Now, they are back… and all electric. Two models are available – the 20kWk (150 mile range) and the 40kWh (300 mile range).

I’m mostly concerned about weight. A proper dune buggy is light by necessity and batteries are heavy as hell…

No word on price yet.

Tripster Chair

Simple folding design. Light, but made of good materials. It’s no Eames Lounge Chair, but it’s not as uncomfortable as it looks. Just really good design.

Racing Sims

Read More

After a post from last week, I was emailed lots of questions about Racing Sims and where to get acquainted. I would suggest watching some YouTube videos to get an idea of what you are in for… From what I understand, it can get very expensive… But from what little experience I have, I can tell you that it is crazy immersive and about as close as you can get to the real thing without risking health.

Anyway, I recommend two channels:

  1. GPLaps. This guy focuses on vintage racing on older platforms that have mods to make the cars handle realistically. This looks less serious and more fun perhaps?
  2. Super GT. Modern GT racing… This guy races with a lot of F1 drivers, but mostly Lando… Super entertaining.

Jaguar C-Type Continuation

This is rad… So, Jaguar won Le Mans in 1951 with a C-Type, right? As of today, you can still buy a brand new one. Well, at the very least, one restored by the Jag factory people.
