Mobility stories without the glare

VISOR is a Philippine-based mobility website that pledges to deliver smart, objective, transparent and accurate content. We went online on November 6, 2017. Why the name? Good question. We really wanted “Best Motoring Website,” but that would have been a little awkward. Not because we wouldn’t be able to live up to the automatic expectations (we intend to), but because the acronym “BMW” is already taken. Some carmaker based in Munich, Germany, apparently beat us to it. By 101 years.

Seriously, a visor helps the driver see things clearly on the road by blocking the blinding radiance of the sun. Similarly, we want our website to help readers wade through the stream of deceitfulness in today’s old and new media that cover land transportation. Our slogan is “Mobility Stories Without the Glare.” Or car-, motorcycle-, and bicycle-related content without the paid falsehood, without the sponsored drama, without the corporate bullshit. That’s our pledge to you, dear high-minded reader, should you decide to include us in your list of trusted content producers.

If you stick around awhile, we’ll talk about cars and mobility in the most honest manner possible and minus the self-serving agenda you’ve come to ascribe to journalists. We promise you won’t find anything here that belongs to peddlers of fiction—political, automotive or otherwise. Pinkie swear.

Thanks for reading.
