Authorities have arrested a man near Los Angeles after a six-hour police chase through Southern California.

NBC Los Angeles reports that the chase started at roughly 7 p.m. on February 3 following a report of a man with a gun. Police attempted to pull the man over in a routine traffic stop but he refused to get out of the car and fled the scene.

Whereas police chases often involve high speeds, the driver of the Chevrolet Malibu drove quite slowly throughout the chase. Speaking with the local media, Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Juan Garcia said authorities did not perform a PIT maneuver on the car due to the report of him being armed.

“Our policy generally prohibits us from conducting a PIT maneuver on somebody we believe is armed because it puts us at a disadvantage when we flip that car around,” Garcia said. “Now he’s face-to-face with us, and it is pretty unsafe.”

Garcia added that in his 20 years with the department, he has never heard of another chase stretching on for six hours. It eventually came to an end near Ontario, California.

NBC Los Angeles notes that the car lost its front left tire at around the four-hour mark but not even that stopped the driver. For two more hours, he drove slowly down a handful of freeways near Los Angeles and only decided to stop when the front left wheel fell off entirely, leaving the car resting on its hub.

The man , who has two outstanding warrants for burglary, ultimately surrendered and was arrested on suspicion of felony evading.

 


Porsche has quietly teased a new addition to the 911 GT lineup.

The company is keeping details under wraps, but the “youngest member” of the family will debut on February 16th at 3:00 PM CET (8:00 AM ET) during a livestreamed event featuring Porsche’s Vice President of GT Cars as well as racer Jörg Bergmeister.

That isn’t much to go on, but the teaser shows a 911 with a prominent rear wing. Unfortunately, this isn’t too helpful as huge wings are trademark of Porsche’s GT cars.

While nothing is official, it could be the new 911 GT3. It’s the most likely candidate as Porsche introduced the 911 GT3 Cup in December and held a press preview for the 911 GT3 a month earlier.

If that’s the case, there likely won’t be any major surprises as the 911 GT3 has been testing without camouflage for months. It features a more aggressive front fascia, a ventilated hood, and center locking wheels that are backed up by massive ventilated discs. Other highlights include a sportier rear bumper and a center-mounted dual exhaust system that is flanked by a diffuser. The model also has a massive rear wing, just like the one in the teaser image.

While Porsche is playing coy, the 911 GT3 is expected to have a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine that produces more than 493 hp (368 kW / 500 PS). It’s slated to be paired to a six-speed manual transmission, but a seven-speed PDK gearbox will also be available.

Of course, assuming this is the new 911 GT3, we can expect full details later this month.

GM released their Super Bowl commercial earlier this week and it features Will Ferrell teaming up to take on Norway and their love affair with electric vehicles.

Dubbed “No Way, Norway,” the clip is designed to promote GM’s plan to introduce 30 electric vehicles by 2025. As a result, it features the upcoming Cadillac Lyriq and GMC Hummer EV.

While reaction to the ad has been mixed, it garnered plenty of attention in Norway thanks to the #NoWayNorway hashtag on Twitter. This prompted Audi and Ford Norge to respond with videos of their own.

As you can see in Audi’s clip, a man is driving an e-tron crossover and says “Norway is the best country in the universe.”  He then asks, “How can you hate this?” while driving in a remote snow covered forest.

The driver eventually stops after finding a broken globe in the middle of the road.  This is a direct reference to the one Ferrell punches and gets stuck on his hand in GM’s Super Bowl commercial. The man picks it up and dramatically says, “You want to punch us in the face? You want to do this to us? To me? To the world? We’re trying to save the world.”

The clip ends with a tagline reading “Don’t hate. Imitate.” It then points out Norway is the world’s leading electric vehicle country and the Audi e-tron was the best-selling new vehicle there last year.

For their part, Ford Norge responded to GM’s earlier Super Bowl teaser where Ferrell makes a prank phone call and orders five million pizzas with anchovies while joking that Olaf has a coupon.

Ford responded by saying “Sorry buddy” – a possible reference to Ferrell’s portrayal of Buddy the Elf – “When you finally get to Norway, your pineapple pizza will be here for you – we’ll save you a bite!” The tweet was accompanied by a video of Mustang Mach-Es delivering Domino’s pizza across the country.

#NoWayNorway?? Sorry buddy, when you finally get to Norway, your pineapple pizza will be here for you – we`ll save you a bite! 💙Norway https://t.co/m3qUV1n6em pic.twitter.com/B4qeDKnUvX
