Robo-Lastwagen Is Coming: Autonomous Autobahn Semi-Truck Testing to Begin Soon  Jul 27th, 2015 
While the Western U.S.—namely California and Nevada—is pretty much ground-zero for autonomous-vehicle testing, Daimler would like to bring that development closer to its own engineering hub in Baden-Württemberg. And it looks like that’s about to happen very soon. One German testing door closes and another one opens. While the Nürburgring has banned lap-record attempts, it looks […]

2017 Audi A4 Prototype Drive: Familiar Looks, Highly Evolved Driving Experience  Jul 27th, 2015 
When the latest Audi Q7 broke cover last spring, the SUV’s styling proved to be a very hot topic for discussion, and that’s happened again with another new Audi. This time, it’s the A4’s turn, as the all-new 2017 iteration that debuted last month has plenty of folks wondering why it looks so similar to […]

Hellcats a-Poppin! Dodge Is More Than Doubling Output for 2016  Jul 27th, 2015 
Dodge SRT Hellcat demand has easily outstripped supply—this is something the company intended. It was also blatantly obvious that a lot of dealers gouged the hell out of customers looking to get one of the few Hellcats around—something that Dodge isn’t terribly fond of. In an attempt to limit dealer shenanigans, Dodge is going to do a […] 
2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe Captured During Final Testing  Jul 27th, 2015 
Still lightly camouflaged, here is the Mercedes-AMG C63 coupe in final testing at Hockenheim racetrack in Germany. To be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt auto show this September, Mercedes-AMG’s response to the BMW M4 is a surprisingly distinct and almost brutal variation of the rather elegant next-gen C-class coupe. We already know that the C63 […]

After two years of selling the current-generation IS sedan with a strange, underpowered 2.5-liter V-6 engine (in addition to the optional and way better 3.5-liter V-6), Lexus has wised up and replaced the base engine with a new, turbocharged four-cylinder from the NX200t. The newly created IS200t brings Lexus’s IS lineup in line with pretty much […]

RIP Heavy D: Our Icelandic Ode to the Land Rover Defender  Jul 24th, 2015 
Only in a place where the locals live in the shadow of volcanoes and eat sheep heads can you drive off the Hertz lot in a Land Rover Defender. In Iceland, renting a Defender is a deliberate choice. There’s no getting stuck with an “or similar.” The alternative is another Defender, lifted on 38-inch snow […]

Van Damn! 2015 Ford Transit 350 Tested, Rules All  Jul 24th, 2015 
Before we give our full attention to the 2015 Ford Transit 350 XLT that is the subject of this test, let’s take a moment to give a shout-out to its predecessor, the legendary Ford E-series/Econoline. Debuting in the early 1960s, the first-generation Econoline employed a forward-control layout that positioned the driver and passenger above the […] 
For Sale: a Championship-Winning Piece of NASCAR History  Jul 24th, 2015 
The late 1960s was an exciting time for NASCAR. For most of the decade, Ford was dominant and Chrysler was right on its heels. Both companies spent vast sums of money investing in racing—creating vehicles such as this 1968 Ford Torino Coupe NASCAR stock car. The Torino was introduced in 1968 as a top-shelf version […]

Swift Swabians: Stuttgart Students Set 1.779-Second 0-to-62-mph EV Record [Video]  Jul 24th, 2015 
Those pesky Swiss, so smug with their chocolate and francs and Sepp Blatters and 0-to-100-kph acceleration records. They needed to be taken down a peg. And if the Porsche 959 and Mercedes-Benz 600 Grosser taught us anything, it’s that when the Swabians need to remind the world who’s boss when it comes to engineering, Stuttgart […]

Buick Envision CUV Almost Definitely Coming to U.S.—Plus a Subcompact Hatch, Too?  Jul 24th, 2015 
Adding some fuel to the fire slightly smoldering, ash-covered coals surrounding the prospect of a U.S.-market Buick Envision crossover, Automotive News has reported that the Envision is slated to arrive here in late 2016.

Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Repurposes Collision-Warning Lights for Head-Up Shift Indicator  Jul 23rd, 2015 
The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and even-hotter GT350R were both built to attack track days. Today, Ford showed off another nifty little feature designed for track rats: a shift light that uses Ford’s forward collision-warning system’s head-up lights to tell you when to upshift. As Ford tells it, Shelby electrical engineer Mike Makled was inspired to […] 
2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe Test: Over the Top—and Beyond  Jul 23rd, 2015 
When we tested the S63 version of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-class coupe, we called it “over the top in every way imaginable.” So let us now imagine that one wearing a price tag swollen by 25 percent with 50 percent more cylinders under the hood must be beyond over the top, somewhere the usual rules […] 
2016 Honda Accord Revealed: Tweaks and Tech  Jul 23rd, 2015 
It’s coming up on three years since the Honda Accord’s successful redesign for 2013, which means the mid-size favorite—and multiple 10Best Cars winner—is due for some fussing over for the 2016 model year.

One-Off Ferrari with an Incredible History May Pull $16 Million at Auction  Jul 23rd, 2015 
A million dollars for a car is insane. Yet, we continuously see classic Ferraris pull in more than 5 to 10 times that at auction, and this one-off 1962 Ferrari 250GT SWB Berlinetta Speciale is expected to far exceed that number.

Porsche Pajun Sedan Could Appear at Frankfurt Auto Show with Electric Powertrain  Jul 22nd, 2015 
It’s no secret that Porsche is planning to build a smaller-than-Panamera sedan-ish thing to compete with the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-class, and Jaguar XF, among others, although the plans for actually when Porsche plans to launch that car, nicknamed “Pajun” (PA-namera JUN-ior, get it?) are as clear as mud.

2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Convertible Test: A Great, If Pricey, Convertible in Search of the Right Engine  Jul 22nd, 2015 
Ford’s push for its EcoBoost agenda—the one where turbocharged, small-displacement engines can supposedly replace larger, naturally aspirated engines with improved fuel economy and no impact on power—turned to a shove when it added a turbo four-cylinder to the new Mustang’s engine lineup. A turbo four in America’s pony car, dadgummit?! The experiment worked out okay […]

FCA has announced a recall of four-cylinder-powered Dodge Journeys and (Euro-twin) Fiat Freemonts due to a potential engine-fire risk due to loosely attached engine covers.

Sound on Sound: AMG Teases C63 Coupe, Adds Noise [Video]  Jul 21st, 2015 
A couple of weeks back, AMG peppered its Facebook pages with images of a lightly camo’d C63 coupe. Which is all well and good, but it neglected one of the finest things about V-8–powered automobiles from Mercedes-Benz’s extra-zoot division: the racket. Having driven the AMG GT-S, which carries a version of the C63’s twin-turbo, 4.0-liter […]

Van Tale-In': The Ford Transit Has a Longer History Than You Realized  Jul 21st, 2015 
We have lamented the passing of the venerable Ford E-series—a vehicle that’s ingrained in the fabric of automotive America, one that was offered with a 6.8-liter V-10 to the very end.

Next Toyota Prius Plug-In Allegedly Could Provide 30 to 35 Miles of Electric Range  Jul 21st, 2015 
Toyota’s first-generation Prius plug-in was a bit of a dud. First launched for 2013, it was much pricier than a standard Prius but by the time production ended, the price had been slashed to within $2000 of the regular model. But even the price drop didn’t solve its biggest problem: a relatively low electric-only range […] 
2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-class Driven: Luxury-Crossover Buyers Should Be Excited  Jul 21st, 2015 
A new crossover gets us nearly as excited as the prospect of binge-watching C-SPAN. Or maybe binge-watching people who are binge-watching C-SPAN. Yet such vehicles are wildly popular, and so every automaker offers at least as many variations on the theme as there are variations of, well, C-SPAN.

Koenigsegg’s outrageous One:1 just keeps running wild on unsuspecting pavement. First, we watched it blast to 220 mph at a supercar meetup in England. Then, we saw it tearing up Suzuka Circuit.

A few weeks ago, we brought you the sad news that Mazda has no need for a “Speed” version of its new Miata. (Cue sad horns). All is not lost, however: If what Fiat COO Alfredo Altavilla said to AutoExpress is true, the Italian version, the Fiat 124 Spider expected to make its debut later […]
