About Car Throttle The internet's largest community for car enthusiasts

Car Throttle was started in 2009 after founder Adnan Ebrahim realised there was no online platform for people like him: young, millennial car enthusiasts. Dubbed ‘Buzzfeed for cars’, the site quickly evolved into a vibrant community serving millions of users - called CTzens - who follow the brand on its apps and major social media platforms.

Car Throttle creates and distributes engaging car content and works closely with advertisers looking to reach a valuable audience. Our investors include the minds behind AOL, Facebook, Skype and MailOnline.

In 2019, Car Throttle was acquired by Dennis publishing, joining a high-calibre automotive portfolio which includes the likes of Auto Express, evo and Carbuyer. In 2021, Car Throttle joined its fellow Dennis automotive brands under the Autovia banner - a new, combined business unlocking further growth for the sector.
