2019 Audi A7 spy shots and video

Audi's next-generation A7 has been spotted in prototype form once again. Though the latest prototype is still heavily masked, we can make out much of the design which shows a clear resemblance to Audi’s Prologue concept first unveiled at the 2014 Los Angeles auto show. Responsible for the look is current Audi design boss Marc Lichte. His aim...

Mini will preview electric car with 2017 Frankfurt auto show concept

BMW Group’s Mini brand was an early pioneer of mainstream electric cars. Some readers will recall the brand leased the Hardtop-based Mini E electric car on a trial basis late last decade to help gather feedback from users. The BMW Group used the gathered feedback for the i3 launched in 2014. But with electric cars increasing in popularity...

Chevy assesses more affordable Camaro V-8 to challenge Mustang, Challenger

Right now the most affordable Chevrolet Camaro with a V-8 is the Camaro SS which starts at approximately $38,000. However, Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger buyers can drive away with a V-8 under the hood for approximately $34,100, via the respective Mustang GT and Challenger R/T models. That’s got Chevy considering bringing down the price...

2019 Nissan Altima spy shots

Nissan in January previewed the design of its next-generation Altima mid-sizer and now we have the first spy shots of a prototype. The car is due in showrooms in late 2018, as a 2019 model, and represents the sixth iteration of the Altima nameplate.

Opel's range-topping SUV put on hold following brand's sale to PSA Group

Opel in 2014 confirmed plans for a flagship SUV that would share a platform and production line with the Insignia range of models. But the platform in question, code-named E2XX, is a General Motors design no longer available to Opel due to the brand’s sale earlier this year to France’s PSA Group. According to Auto Express, the change...

2020 Audi Q3 spy shots

Development of a next-generation Audi Q3 is well underway as our latest spy shots confirm. The new compact crossover SUV is expected on sale in 2019, as a 2020 model, and so far it doesn’t appear that Audi will be pulling any surprises regarding the design. The vehicle should resemble a scaled down version of the latest Q5 albeit with a more...

2018 Ford F-150 first drive review: so good you won't even notice

When the new Ford F-150 was unveiled in 2015, it was the world's first aluminum pickup truck, an innovation that General Motors and Ram still haven't caught up with. Combined with a pair of twin-turbocharged V-6 engines, Ford's perennial best-seller pushed the art of the truck into an important new chapter. Consider the 2018 Ford F-150 a key...

Toyota's latest transmission patent is similar to '60s Saab technology

The manual transmission faces an uncertain future. Increasing emissions standards, future safety technology, and dwindling take rates could spell its demise. But a new patent shows Toyota gives a shift, as we like to say, and it could give the manual gearbox an extended lease on life. Roadshow discovered the Toyota patent for a "Controller for...

Infiniti reveals 'what if' Prototype 9 1940s grand prix racer ahead of Pebble Beach

Remember when Infiniti, that company that began operations in 1989, campaigned a 1940s open-wheel grand prix racer? Neither do we. And did you know that it was electric? Seems pretty far ahead of its time, doesn't it? Infiniti has revealed its "what if" Prototype 9 race car ahead of the festivities of the Monterey Car Week. We must admit, for a...

2017 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X off-road review

Term limits don't apply to the new car industry. If they did, the 2017 Nissan Frontier you see here wouldn't be a dead-ringer for the 2005 Nissan Frontier that hit dealer lots during George W. Bush's first term. A lot has changed since 2005. But not the Frontier. Sure, it's up for a redesign, but the current Frontier persists, and, frankly, it's a...

Audi Q8, Porsche Carrera 4 GTS, Acura RLX: This Week's Top Photos

We spotted the 2020 Audi Q8 undergoing testing on the Nürburgring. Sized like the Audi Q7, the new Q8 has a fast roofline, a wide track, and flared fenders. Aggression apparently will be standard. Not that you would, but apparently you can take your McLaren 570 GT camping. Why? The better question is why not. Acura revealed the updated 2018...

A rare Bugatti EB110 SS Dauer is up for grabs for $1.16M

Oh, how we fondly remember the 1990s and their magical poster-worthy supercars. Great cars like the Ferrari F40 and F50, Porsche 959, and Lamborghini Diablo existed during this wonderful time. Another car that doesn't get as much ink is the Bugatti EB110. It's a rare bird, to be sure, as only 140 or so were built. There's an even rarer version of...

2018 Dodge Ram heavy duty makes 930 lb-ft of torque, may rotate earth

The 2018 Dodge Ram 3500 can lay claim to two automotive superlatives. At least, right now it can. When equipped with a 6.7-liter turbodiesel, dual rear wheels, Aisin 6-speed automatic, and a 4.10 rear axle ratio, the 2018 Dodge Ram 3500 will make 930 pound-feet of torque and haul a 30,000-pound fifth-wheel trailer, the truckmaker announced Friday...

Buy Pedro Martinez's 2003 Aston Martin Vanquish, help a charity, and meet the Hall of Famer

Number 45 has been retired by the Boston Red Sox since 2015. It was the number worn by one of the greatest pitchers in Major League Baseball history, Pedro Martinez. The slim, 5-11, 170-pound Dominican had electric stuff. His career ERA? 2.93. He still holds the third-highest strikeout-to-walk ratio in modern baseball history, he put fewer runners...

Performance shop reunites Jesse with his VW Jetta from 'The Fast and the Furious'

For youngsters who have only known the "Fast and Furious" franchise to be about explosions and high-flying stunts, there was a simpler time. It was a time when the craziest stunt a character pulled was leaping off of a semi truck onto a Toyota Supra, the film was released on VHS, and a star car was none other than a Volkswagen Jetta. We miss those...
