Driverless Audi TT To Climb Pike's Peak, Via Stanford Robot

It's hardly surprising that an Audi TT two-seat sports car would climb to Pike's Peak, along the famously twisty 19-mile road that ascends to 14,110 feet above sea level.

Scott Keogh Explains Why Audi Is The Only One Making Money

To hear Scott Keogh tell it, Audi is the only car company making money these days. When he says that, we suppose he means "only non-Asian car company", since Hyundai, Kia, and Subaru were up 8.3%, 9.8%, and 15.4% respectively in 2009. But maybe we're just stuck on semantics. Now, we agree with Audi...Read More»
