Cops from three different law enforcement agencies came down on a crew of 2017 Ford GT prototypes Tuesday morning for doing more than double the speed limit on Interstate 70 in Colorado. The test drivers will have to come back to serve court summonses according to Avon, Colo.’s police chief.
The upcoming, much awaited Toyota Supra was captured for the first time on video entering and leaving the BMW M Test Center at the Nürburgring, and it sounds absolutely delightful.
We’ve known for some time that Mercedes-Benz will be building a mid-sized pickup truck in the near future. Or at least, they’ll rebadge a Nissan. But this week somebody seems to have actually spotted the thing cruising around Germany.
A reader named Michael was riding his bicycle–I Googled that, it’s like a motorcycle that uses a human as an engine– over Monarch Pass in Colorado, when he saw this: a pair of Ford GTs in the wild, matte grey, involved in some sort of testing.
I don’t know if I’m ready to live in a world where the Toyota Supra is coming back oh my god I’m hyperventilating please yes I am painfully excited for Toyota’s idea of a world-conquering sports car to return.
There’s nothing quite like Death Valley to shake down a car. Not only is it the hottest place in the United States, but the twisty park roads and scenery are quite lovely—so long as your car works. So, naturally, we saw quite a few automotive testers when the LeMons Rally took us straight to Car Hell.
Faraday Future, the Chinese-backed next-big-thing-we-swear! car company, massively blew its first chance to prove its credibility when it presented a weirdo concept as its first car. All we wanted to see was a real vehicle, but Faraday kept their production car hidden. And now it appears we have our first glimpse.
Autoblog captured some spy photos of a Corvette prototype (that may be the Corvette ZR1, the blog points out) tugging along a laughable massive wing on the trunk. This is basically what it looks like.
Look, Porsche, I’m one of your biggest fans, and I hate to see you go down a path of self-destruction. I care. I really do! But you really need to get clean, stop doing hard drugs and back away from this plan to have a “coupe” crossover with four doors and a squashed butt.
What on earth is a Ferrari F142M M3? F142 is the internal code for the Ferrari 488, according to YouTube supercar superfan Marchettino. So, what kind of franken-test-car did Marchettino find hiding under a bunch of trashed 458 body panels and enough duct tape to put my ChumpCar to shame?
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.
