Watch a Hellcat-Stuffed Toyota Prius Smoke a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon on the Drag Strip

The 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is terrifying, no matter the circumstances. It was made to be a drag-strip nightmare, and it is—as far as cars straight from the factory are concerned. The Toyota Prius is also terrifying, when stuck behind it in traffic while in a hurry.

Slammed Toyota Priuses Are Good Slammed Toyota Priuses Are Good

The Toyota Prius is often falsely considered the anti-enthusiast’s car. While I could name a number of reasons why the hybrid Toyota deserves more credit, I’d rather just show you this video of some seriously slammed Priuses. Because they look hot.

So often we tie our cars to the great events in our lives. This is my story.

This Toyota Prius Has Been Vastly Improved With An 800-Horsepower Hellcat Engine

I don’t have a problem, fundamentally, with the Prius. It does what it sets out to do, I guess. But it’s far from perfect. It can be improved. You can, for example, stuff a 800-horsepower supercharged V8 out of a Dodge Challenger Hellcat in there, making it fast enough to pretty much rip your face off.

This Lifted Prius Trolls Jeeps This Lifted Prius Trolls Jeeps

The Toyota Prius has been written off for years by enthusiasts as too slow and dull to be any fun, but thanks to a Russian lift kit and a can-do attitude, a team who goes by “The Regenerates” finally made theirs fun. They took their Prius to the Gambler 500—the insane navigational rally for cheap, impractical cars—and…

The Plural Of Prius Is Actually 'Prii,' According To Toyota The Plural Of Prius Is Actually 'Prii,' According To Toyota

I’ve just learned a horrifying fact: I’ve been pluralizing the name “Prius” incorrectly, and you probably have been, too. Did you assume that the regular rules of English plural words applied, such that it would be “Priuses?” I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry.

Toyota Recalls Over 68,000 C-HRs and PHEV Priuses For Faulty Electronics Toyota Recalls Over 68,000 C-HRs and PHEV Priuses For Faulty Electronics

Why The First Real Toyota Prius Doesn't Deserve Any Of The Hate Why The First Real Toyota Prius Doesn't Deserve Any Of The Hate

The first-generation Toyota Prius was essentially an Echo with a few 9 volt batteries thrown in the trunk. It wasn’t until the second generation that Toyota really crafted the Prius whose legacy continues today. With its Hybrid Synergy Drive, weird egg shape and extremely high MPG, it really was a revolutionary car…

An Exhaustive Fact-Check Of That 0-60 In 2.3 Seconds (Off A Cliff) Sticker An Exhaustive Fact-Check Of That 0-60 In 2.3 Seconds (Off A Cliff) Sticker

In your time motoring along the roads, highways, and under-surveilled mall food courts of America, it’s not unlikely that you’ve seen a particular window sticker on certain, let’s say, more sedate vehicles. The sticker, designed to poke some self-deprecating fun, states that the car that bears it can accelerate from…

Prius Ends Up Wedged In Doorway Prius Ends Up Wedged In Doorway

What you’re looking at up there used to be a Toyota Prius, and, yes, it’s crammed into a doorway of a building. The bizarre location for a Prius happened as the result of a crash in Indianapolis, where a teenaged driver ran a red light and crashed into a building. The driver is in critical condition, but responsive.…

Toyota Recalls 340,000 Priuses Because They Could Roll Away, 'Injuries And Deaths' Reported [Updated] Toyota Recalls 340,000 Priuses Because They Could Roll Away, 'Injuries And Deaths' Reported [Updated]

Toyota just recalled 340,000 examples of its questionably-styled new Prius because the cable-controlled foot-brake might not work. And that’d be a big problem on an incline, where the little sedan’s low rolling resistance tires and slick drag coefficient would turn this thing into a rolling hybrid of destruction.

The 2017 Toyota Prius Prime Is A High-Tech Pretend Tesla That Gets Incredible Mileage The 2017 Toyota Prius Prime Is A High-Tech Pretend Tesla That Gets Incredible Mileage

I’ll admit that when I first heard of the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Part of me thought that it may be that performance variant of the Prius I’ve been imagining. Another part thought it was just a Prius that can only be divided by one and itself. Both parts were wrong: the Prius…

Reminder: You Can Call 911 To Verify You’re Being Pulled Over By A Real Cop Reminder: You Can Call 911 To Verify You’re Being Pulled Over By A Real Cop

The Toyota commercial with the “Prius Four” outlasting the police has always been silly, especially when the cops agree that “to catch a Prius, you’ve got to be a Prius.” No, you won’t catch many people—like the people two Prius drivers tried to pull over in California, they may think the cop car is fake.

This Is The Toyota Prius We Deserve  This Is The Toyota Prius We Deserve 

Have you seen the new Prius? Have you forgiven yourself yet? I haven’t. Can somebody explain to me why the redesigned Toyota Prius looks like a hairless cat while this Australian Corolla Hybrid looks like that perfectly respectable Business Cat meme?

This Is Every Song Ever In Car Commercials Aimed At Asshole Millennials This Is Every Song Ever In Car Commercials Aimed At Asshole Millennials

Now more than ever, I’m convinced Father John Misty is a genius. Not just because his own music is great, or because he was in Fleet Foxes, or because he does insane things like cover Ryan Adams’ Taylor Swift covers in the style of the Velvet Underground, but because he just eviscerated the music in every eco-friendly…

Our enemy’s numbers grow... Toyota announced today it has reached the milestone of selling over nine million hybrids as of April 30th, with the most recent million sales in just nine months. The automaker now sells 33 different hybrid models in over 90 countries and regions with goals of reaching 1.5 million hybrid…

2017 Toyota Prius Prime: Will People Buy Toyota's Most Advanced Hybrid Ever? 2017 Toyota Prius Prime: Will People Buy Toyota's Most Advanced Hybrid Ever?

No, the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime doesn’t turn into a gigantic, fuel-efficient leader of the Autobots, like I was kind of hoping from the name. But it is Toyota’s most advanced hybrid ever: a plug-in with 22 miles of electric range. The question is, will people buy it?

Toyota May Have To Temporarily Stop Making Cars In Japan  Toyota May Have To Temporarily Stop Making Cars In Japan 

Following an explosion at one of its affiliate steel production plants, Toyota could have to put a halt on nearly half of its global production in February. If so, that means about 14,000 vehicles per day may not roll off the line.
