The shear breadth of popularity of the Toyota Pickup is stunning. It is loved by such disparate groups as farmers, jihadists, outdoor sports lovers, and pure posers. And while they all may have unique uses for these trucks, the tie that binds seems to be dependable utility (and cheap may have applied at one time too, but no longer in 2021). Famously, the British show Top Gear once filmed a multitude of unbelievable stunts to try to break a Pickup (known in much of the world as a Hilux), and still failed. In this article we examine a 1981 example that has been restored to an exacting level. In doing so, has it lost its reason for being, or is it better than ever? Let us know what you think in the comments.
What's behind Porsche's investment in synthetic gas/eFuels? Well, Porsche needs to keep bitchy rich old dudes happy, and needs gas to do it. The Germans will all be running on treadmills unless they can find a way to get renewable energy across state lines. Siemens got a fat contract. And ExxonMobil has about a gazillion dollars of infrastructure and equipment it doesn’t want to see obsoleted and scrapped in the name of progress. And maybe, just maybe, synthetic gas is the answer to these problems. (photo Credit: CSK 911 C4S on Rennlist)
