As many as 30 shots can be heard in frightening footage taken by neighbors. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who was wounded in the shooting, can be seen lying motionless on the field in one clip.
An executive order aims to identify sectors of the economy that could benefit from a little healthy competition. The first target of that order: your cable box.
Looking out at the audience where his mother was sitting, Rubio said that she was one of the three million Florida seniors on Social Security. It was just one of many moments during the debate in which Rubio used his Florida roots to advantage.
Ahead of today’s auction in Paris, auctioneer Artcurial had estimated the 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti might fetch between $30 million and $35 million. Enzo Ferrari himself oversaw its construction, and the body by Scaglietti has proven timeless.
The state, which accounts for less than 1 percent of the United States population, gets an inordinate amount of attention from the candidates and the press because, strategically speaking, a strong showing in Iowa can translate into support in other states. It’s why the candidates choke down all manner of things buttered, battered and fried at the Iowa State Fair and why Donald Trump traded his 5th Avenue penthouse for a Holiday Inn Express in Sioux Center for one night. Iowa, along with nine other states, uses a caucus, which is conducted by the Democratic and Republican parties rather than by the state.
Let’s say you’re a fan of the second-generation Pontiac Trans Am, that dying ember of the ‘60s muscle-car that made up for what it lacked in horsepower with “screaming chicken” graphics and “Smokey and the Bandit” fame. You can buy a clean, well-cared for example for roughly $10,000—or at least you could until Pontiac owners see this week’s sales results from the Barrett-Jackson auction in Arizona, where Trans Ams have suddenly, puzzlingly, soared to record high prices. Pontiac built 117,108 in 1979 alone, and in the era of smog-controlled V-8s, the fastest factory car of the era would lose a drag race to a Toyota Camry V-6 today with daylight to spare.
Ford plans to launch a diesel version of its bedrock F-150 pickup next year—and the proof comes from this video caught on the streets near its headquarters.
Conventional wisdom says 300 horsepower is about the practical limit for a front-wheel-drive car. The Ford Focus ST Mountune MP275 would seem to tread perilously close to that grey area between fun and terrifying.
One Tesla owner started the new year with a bang when his Model S caught fire at a Supercharger station in Norway. Since 2013, Tesla has fielded concern over its all-electric Model S sedans catching fire. It’s not clear what happened in this latest incident, but Tesla is said to be investigating.
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has a lot of problems with his political rivals – now you’re going to hear about them. The Republican presidential candidate took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to participate in Festivus’ “Airing of Grievances” again. First, Paul took aim at GOP frontrunner Donald Trump for his dubious command of Yiddish and Chinese-manufactured Trump ties.
In the midsize luxury spot sedan realm, there are two types of cars: the incumbents and the strivers. The incumbents are the obvious choices, the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, probably the Audi A6. The strivers are basically everyone else: Hyundai Genesis, Cadillac CTS and yes, the Jaguar XF.
It’s one thing for experts to explain why Cuba’s stash of pre-1962 American cars may not be appealing outside the country. It’s quite another to see them in action, up close, as Cubans use them in their daily lives.
Some people defy belief. One example of such human is Jamie Lee Sharp, 25, who broke into a house with his pal James Honeywell, 26, and stole the keys to a Porsche Boxster. Sharp then decided to film himself with the car using his cell phone—prior to crashing it, that is, where he became trapped, then arrested, and has since been gifted four years behind bars.
At a stroke, the Global Mazda MX-5 Cup solves all of those problems. Reasonable people may disagree on whether a $53,000 Mazda Miata can be considered a bargain, even though it definitely is. The cars are built by Long Road Racing in Statesville, N.C. Complete production Miatas—not bodies in white—are sent to Long for race-car conversion.
Publicity stunts by companies are typically blatant pleas for media attention. Often, they barely deserve a glance, but this one from Land Rover bucks the trend. It’s not the fact that a Range Rover was involved, or JLR’s hope that we’ll be reminded that the new Range has lost a boatload of weight due to its aluminum construction.
London’s Mayfair district is an expensive buy on the Monopoly board, which means its roads are lined with expensive cars, like this vintage Porsche 911 sporting the iconic whale-tail. It is, then, a haven for brazen criminals looking to pillage a new ride.

When Ben Carson took the stage Wednesday morning at Liberty University’s Vine Center, he claimed a role familiar to many of the conservative Christians in his audience — that of a believer persecuted for his faith.
My favorite touchscreen systems, therefore, were the ones that use Apple’s CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto. Problem is, not everybody owns an iPhone or Android phone, so no car comes with just CarPlay or Android Auto.
2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 Naturally, the 911 GT3 RS will run circles around the Cayman GT4 in terms of lap times (one has 772 lbs. of downforce, the other 220 lbs.).
Henry Wettstein posted the video of the incident to YouTube, apparently captured from a home security camera. We see the police approaching in a friendly manner, laughing the incident off, saying, “There’s seats in here?
It earned greatness on the forest rally stages in Europe, wrestled by heroic pilots like Björn Waldergård, Hanuu Mikkola and Ari Vatanen. Ken Block, America’s favorite shoe-salesman and the definitive king of the skids, has modified his own 1978 Mk2 Escort RS and turned it into a modern-day Gymkhana drift machine.
