85 Automotive Gifts

From Hands-Free Car Kits to Semi-Autonomous Sedans

— December 24, 2016 — Autos
No matter the validity to the sentiment of reducing society's reliance on fossil fuels, the romantic appeal of the automobile will always thrive, and automotive gifts will remain a great option for the car buffs one holds dear.

When it comes to automotive gifts, there are several different categories. Firstly, there are cars themselves. Though a lavish holiday gift, to be sure, there's no better time to go for broke than during the season of giving.

A more economically reasonable option for car gifts would be accessories. Owners of old vehicles especially can benefit from some technological upgrades like the 'Dashbot' or Samsung's 'Connect,' which can convert even the most out-of-date vehicles into smart machines.

Automotive experiences are also a great gift for people with the need for speed, with the Porsche LA Experience Center giving drivers the opportunity to race on a track.
