Thor Trucks describes itself as “a Los Angeles-based Transportation Lab creating and deploying solutions to fleet owners.” But what does that really mean? They Frankenstein-ed together an electric semi-trailer prototype that’s just as impressive as the Tesla Electric Semi Truck, and they’re expected to beat Tesla to market by a full year. The ET-One is an all-electric Class 8 tractor with 80,000 pound carrying capacity that’s been built for fleets by fleet operators. The futuristic, Transformers-esque truck will definitely be something to look at—particularly in the rear view—but it’s what’s under the “hood” that’s really impressive. With a chassis from a Navistar, heavy-duty Dana axles, a motor from supplier TM4 and house-built battery modules, the ET-One isn’t attempting to “literally reinvent the wheel,” according to co-founder Giordano Sordoni. They’re improving on existing technology to create a vehicle with a range of 300 miles that could make an actual dent in fossil fuel consumption.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
