Leader: April 2022
The dark mode feature that many of you have asked for is now active (you may need to update your app in the App Store before you’ll see this option in the Settings page) and in the coming weeks we’ll launch our brand new, very beautiful website. The app will live on, but you’ll now be able to read our articles on a computer or laptop as well as a mobile device. You will also be able to create a commenting profile, making it easier for us all to interact with one another in the comments beneath each article.
The website will improve the reading experience enormously, I’m sure, and we’re working with a brilliant web design agency that understands implicitly what The Intercooler stands for. Our newfound web presence will also make our ever expanding back catalogue of brilliant written work even more accessible.
As we continue to record weekly podcasts that will remain freely available to anybody who wants to listen, we’re busy working on a new guest-based podcast series that will give you a real insight into the lives of some of the biggest names in the automotive world and beyond. How big? I’m talking Knights of the Realm, Lords, racing heroes, legends of car design and more. This new podcast series will sit behind The Intercooler paywall as an added benefit for subscribers.
Behind the scenes, we’ve recently recruited a brilliant social media and digital marketing specialist who’ll help us elevate everything we do across Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, on the podcast and on YouTube as well.
As I hope you can tell, all of this is a tremendously big deal for us and the next step in turning The Intercooler into a world-class automotive media title. We will of course let you all know when the website will go live. In the meantime, do let us know in the comments what you’d like to see more or less of, and please tell your car-loving friends all about us – they’re not going to want to miss out on what’s coming.
One more thing – many, many thanks to all of you for your invaluable support so far. We wouldn’t be able to do any of this without you.
BMW M3 Competition
Before we get stuck in, I want to make you a promise: I won’t let the appearance of the new BMW M3 colour my assessment of it. I don’t particularly like the way it looks...
Why small tuners deserve your attention
Car manufacturers invest billions in R&D. They employ the most skilled engineers and development drivers, test forthcoming models in the desert, in the Arctic Circle...
A McLaren F1 and the Nürburgring
It was a ridiculous brief, one which excited and terrified me in approximately equal measure. It was early in 1994 and my editor at Autocar had somehow discovered...
I’m no rally co-driver
Recently I wrote a deliberately arch piece over on Instagram about Daniel Elena and his extraordinary comments in the wake of his split with long-time collaborator Sébastien Loeb...
