One Lap of the Web: Elon Musk's Hyperloop, Greenwich Concours and a Model TFri, 31 May 2013 00:00:00 -0700
We spend a lot of time on the Internet -- pretty much whenever we're not driving, writing about or working on cars. Since there's more out there than we'd ever be able to cover, here's our daily digest of car stuff on the Web you may not otherwise have heard about.
The 2013 Porsche Rennsport Australia went off over Memorial Day weekend at Sydney Motorsports Park and motorsportretro.com has full gallery of pictures. Porsches from every era were represented at the event that brought thousands of Porschephiles from across the world.
Tesla founder Elon Musk is never far from the front page. His company just paid off its government loans nine years early and now the rumored Hyperloop is back in the news. Business Insider reviewed the basis for his LA-to-SF-in-30-minutes travel plan by looking at some of the science behind the "cross between a Concorde, a railgun and an air hockey table."
The boys over at Hooniverse are talking about this weekend's Greenwich Concours d'Elegance in Connecticut and reminiscing with pictures from the 2012 event. The small events may not have the range of vehicles of the big ones in Michigan and California, but some of the funky stuff is even better.
The New York Times Wheels Blog is discussing how to drive a Model T Ford, which is way more difficult than you could imagine. Luckily, there's video with Benjamin Preston.
