The Evening Rush is your daily roundup of auto, gear, and lifestyle news, all in one place. Less time searching, more time driving. Motor on.


The forthcoming 2017 Infiniti Q60 Coupe has been spied outside Las Vegas, and it doesn’t look half bad. The model is expected to offer either a mild-mannered 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or beefier 3-liter turbo V6, the latter making upwards of 400 horsepower.

German aftermarket shop Wunderlich has converted the BMW R1200GS motorcycle into a two-wheel-drive hybrid. The modified bike uses a 7.6-kilowatt hub motor in the front wheel to provide additional propulsion, allowing for all-electric travel up to 12mph.


The latest vehicle in the Jeep lineup has been also been spied, though it’s dressed in camo. The new compact crossover is expected to fit somewhere between the Renegade and the new Cherokee in Jeep’s lineup. The compact crossover will likely be powered by Fiat-Chrysler’s new 2-liter turbo four-banger.


Tablets and small laptops are everywhere now, and it’s easy to find yourself huddling over a screen to find that perfect angle. Realizing this issue, the folks over at Twelve South made the ParcSlope, an 18-degree metal base that perfectly positions your iPad or Macbook for extreme productivity… or something.

Automotive adventures are a whole lot better when man’s best friend is along for the ride. Although your pup may be a blast to have around, dogs can wreak havoc on a car’s seats. Luckily, Kurgo has developed an super durable seat cover to ensure your furry friend is safe and your car stays clean.


Float like a butterfly with Shinola’s new Muhammad Ali robe. Modeled after the robes Ali used before and after matches, this 100% cotton oxford fabric robe will keep you warm and keep your enemies at bay.


If you’re looking to make your Thanksgiving a bit spicier, bring Cards Against Humanity. The wildly inappropriate party game is just what your family and friends need for getting out of that food coma.

Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye whiskey has been named the 2016 World Whiskey of The Year by critic Jim Murray. It’s definitely nice to see an affordable bottle (around $30) winning such a prestigious award.
