Want an electronic license plate connected to the DMV? This startup has one

Reviver digital license plate and platformFor historians, the 16th century was the height of the Renaissance. The 18th century was all about the Enlightenment.

2017 Kia Forte S Automatic Tested: This S Is Light on Sport

2017-Kia-Forte-S-PLACEMENT

Korean parents, an Italian name, an exterior sculpted by a German, and a tag that says made in Mexico. This sounds like a recipe for schizophrenia, but the Kia Forte S somehow rises above its world-weary pedigree. This is the new-for-2017 bargain-basement (starting at $ 20,500) sports-sedan trim level that responds in meaningful ways to the gripes we’ve heaped on past Fortes. READ MORE ››

This Is the Letter Sent to Folks Whose Ford GT Application Was Denied

Ford-GT-concept-106-876x535
-Ford is only planning on building 500 examples of its $ 450,000 GT supercar, but 6506 people applied for the chance to buy one. That means Ford is going to have to send out a lot of rejection letters and now, via Jalopnik, we know what that rejection letter looks like. It’s quite sad.

At least Ford is letting down rejected applicants easy, and thanking them profusely for their interest in buying a GT. Like a college putting a prospective student on a waitlist, Ford leaves open the possibility that more GT’s could be produced after the initial 500, though we wouldn’t bank on it. The full text, as sent to Jalopnik:

“Thank you for your interest in purchasing a Ford GT!
-We are thrilled that you share our passion for performance and the all-new Ford GT.

The demand for Ford GT from enthusiasts like you has surpassed our very limited production.

Unfortunately, we do not have enough Ford GTs to fulfill your request at this time.

We have confirmed our Ford GT production plans for only two years. However, if additional production is confirmed, your application information will remain in your profile for easy updating.

Meanwhile, we encourage you to stay connected to the latest announcements, news and information through our website: www.fordgt.com.

Thank you, again, for your passion for our all-new supercar.

Regards,

The Ford GT Team”
