the lost art of getting lost

A LITTLE MORE than a year ago (a week or so after all our lives turned upside down), I had a conversation with Road & Track executive editor Dan Pund about a trip we both took in 2012 to a very remote, and very exquisite, hotel on the border of Utah and Arizona. It’s called Amangiri, and the trip has become a thing of lore in the car-magazine world. We were there for only a night, between road tests of the 2013 Range Rover, but we both have vivid memories of the breakfast, a practically divine interpretation of huevos rancheros. It was almost—almost—beyond description. Over the years, that single breakfast has come up in conversations in multiple cities with a variety of writers and editors. Dan and I decided that if…

slot-car slumber party

BROCK KEEN INSISTS he wasn’t trying to start a trend. “I never really contemplated sports-car camping in the past, and I’ve had Porsches and BMWs and others, but I’ve always taken an SUV or a truck camping,” he tells us from his home in Portland, Oregon. However, when a bargain rooftop tent didn’t jibe with the roof rails on his Range Rover, Keen stuck the tent on his 2004 911 Carrera 4S, just to get it home. He and his wife quickly realized this setup was far too cool to languish. So they started an Instagram account, @996roadtrip, to document the fun. Followers came quickly. Sports-car camping became a thing. And hey, why not? A sports car might not take you as far off the grid as overlanding mainstays like the Toyota…

how we got here

HISTORY RECORDS HONDA’S mid-Seventies CVCC engine as an unqualified success, a shining example of ingenuity from a relatively new automaker. And the stratified-charge system was a victory, a clever mechanical design that allowed the company to meet tightening emissions standards without catalytic converters. But in the highly innovative atmosphere of Seventies Honda, the triumph of CVCC highlighted, in some executives’ minds, the company’s lagging position in an area of major automotive breakthroughs: electronics. Indeed, once Honda developed electronic fuel injection, CVCC was done. So in 1976, Honda launched an intense R&D campaign that imagined an automated-vehicle future—one that could only be unlocked by an accumulation of smaller electronic advancements in every major automotive system. Fundamental to this was the car’s ability to know its own physical location. Easier imagined than achieved. Remember,…
