Our friends over at Bridge to Gantry spotted the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS testing on the Nürburgring. Based on the 991.2 generation, it appears to follow the same formula we know, love and fear: put a wicked fast turbocharged drivetrain into a GT3 RS body and chassis, and hope the owner doesn’t spin it into a wall.
A lot fucking faster. That’s the answer.
Bigfoot has been sighted! I mean, uh, there are some new spy shots of what may be the midengine Corvette. Check them out at Autoblog and decide for yourself what you’re looking at.
After years of waiting for a Porsche Panamera that’s not ugly, here we are. This is the new Panamera in all of its 4.0 liter glory.
The Tesla Model 3 should start deliveries some time in the next mid term election cycle, but at least one prototype is out on the road, doing testing and looking good.
My friend Tom was driving around in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles yesterday, and spotted this well-disguised mule. No badges were visible, of course. Well, none on top. Below, it’s full of Hyundai-tagged bits, and this seems to be the next Elantra GT.
McLarens are pretty easy to understand: a shared carbon tub, a shared twin-turbo V8, and lots of variations everywhere else. This looks like the newest take on the formula, the 688HS.
We’ve long waited for a new Porsche Panamera to fix the only thing wrong with the current version: the way it looks. Now it seems like we have our first glimpse of that next generation.
As much as I love Porsches, there’s always been something off about the Panamera. It’s basically the Hunchback of Notre Dame in car form. “They should have just made it a wagon!” I’ve said. Now I have a new reason to kick myself: the spy shots of the new wagon version look oddly proportioned, too.
Yamaha has a new adventure bike on the way, and it’s based on the one of the best and most economical naked sportbikes in production, the Yamaha FZ-07. 2017 is going to be a very interesting year for the adventure bike segment.
This appears to be Volkswagen’s next SUV, either a long-wheelbase China-only version of the Tiguan, or VW’s future Crossblue big crossover. It’s hard to tell, because it’s so dull that VW disguised it as a Kia.
Normally when car prototypes are seen running around public streets, they use this goofy, not-at-all-inconspicuous swirly camo to throw off spy photographers. That’s not the case with whatever this thing is. We suspect it’s the new Volkswagen three-row SUV, and it’s wearing a most impressive disguise.
There’s a new Audi TT and that means, naturally, a new Audi TT RS. Here it is. We saw it coming though, thanks to a leaked product plan.
Rumors of an 800 cc mill have been increasing over the last year or two from the Austrian brand, so much so that I was actually really disappointed last November when they weren’t released. Spy shots show the rumors were true, just my timing was a little off.
Lamborghini revealed the first rear-wheel drive Huracan, the slightly less powerful LP580-2 at the LA Auto Show just two weeks ago. But this prototype isn’t one of those.
A prototype of the next-generation Ford Expedition has been spotted near the company’s development center in Michigan. It’s got the face of an new F-150, most likely an aluminum body, and an overall awesome look reportedly slated for 2018.
