This photo, courtesy of Autospotters, is allegedly a 2015 Ford Mustang test mule with 2013 Mustang skin that shows what everyone’s expecting from the next generation ‘Stang: An Independent Rear Suspension.

The 2014 BMW M5 has hit the web a little early thanks to an employee who accidentally uploaded the car’s configurator ahead of schedule. Looking instantly recognizable, the updated model has a new grille with larger vertical slats that echo those on the M6. There doesn’t appear to be any other major changes but the headlights could receive some [...]

Designer Christophe Jourd’hui created a BMW MZ8 render as a tribute to the 8-Series and Z8 models. The BMW 8-Series was manufactured between the years 1989 and 1999, while the Z8 was on sale from 1999 until 2003. Christophe Jourd’hui merged the designs of these two cars but in a more futuristic approach to create the MZ8.
What It Is: Audi’s upcoming, race-bred hypercar, based directly on the R18 e-tron Quattro Le Mans racer that took victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans last year. Audi intends to use the new car, known internally as Scorpion, as a rolling showcase of the technologies the brand has developed throughout its racing endeavors. A design has [...]
Ever since the Maybach debuted, the Mercedes S-Class has slightly lacked in top-of-the-line prestige at Daimler-Benz. Judging by these interior shots of the new 2014 W222 S-Class, it looks like that’s finally changed. Now it’s more like the hi-tech interior of a private jet, just as it should be.
Callaway has released a few renderings of a design study for a shooting brake version of the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The company says it wants to create a long-roof version of America’s sports car to offer buyers more interior room and a vehicle with “unique style.” The company says it will use structural carbon fiber for [...]
The Pagani Zonda used to rule the world when it came to outrageously alien rearview mirrors on insectile carbon fiber antennae but it’s suddenly got company. The LaFerrari’s wing mirrors extend into the atmosphere on footlong stalks and they look stunning. Are you a Zonda man?
Are your friends giving you crap for liking LaFerrari, the ridiculously-named hybrid hypercar from Modena? Show them the gif below and it should put their mind right. Yes, while Ferrari’s marketing department yammers on about F1 tech this and hybrid that and saying nonsense about aerodynamics being the only justification for any styling trait in the entire car world or whatever, [...]

Alfa Romeo released most of the details on its new 4C sports coupe a couple of weeks ago, but they only included a few images to paw over. Now we’re finally getting to see some more shots of the car, including our first official look at the interior. The glimpse inside the 4C shows us details we did not [...]
Earlier this week I showed you images of what looked like the 2014 Corvette Convertible that popped up in a couple of places, just after the reveal of the 2014 Corvette last Sunday. Were they real? Were they fake?
Two-thousand thirteen is shaping up to be a frantic year for Chevrolet, with over a dozen reveals and launches on its calendar. New iterations of the most financially and emotionally important vehicles to the brand are launching little more than a few weeks apart – the 2014 Silverado (financially) and the 2014 Corvette (emotionally). Better than any other models, these [...]
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has revealed its annual list of Top Safety Picks, an award that highlights automobiles it says offer “superior crash protection.” A new and still more significant award, the Top Safety Pick+ honor, is given to those vehicles that earn good ratings for occupant protection in four out of five areas of [...]
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-class’s element of surprise finally has been completely blown. After the E-class was caught completely undisguised in Spain, Mercedes itself posted teaser photos of the E’s new headlight design and let us take a spin in the 2014 E63 AMG sedan. Now, images of the refreshed E-class have spilt onto the internet.
What It Is: The next-generation BMW X5, which is rapidly losing its camouflage. We last saw BMW’s big SUV almost a year ago, when it was more difficult to recognize. Now the production headlights, taillights, and grille have been applied, and are only partially hidden beneath the psychedelic graphics.
Mercedes-Benz is chasing every niche in the market. A few years ago, Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche revealed in a group interview that the then-14 model lines were quite sufficient and adding more vehicles was not a top priority. Today, we stand at more than 20 body variations, and that doesn’t include Smart or the moribund [...]
